Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) have a better risk benefit profile in Asian patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Whether treatment effects could be modified by drug class and dependency on renal elimination of studied agents has not yet been explored.

Brain arteriovenous malformation (BAVM) is a life-threatening vascular congenital malformation due to the risk of intracerebral hemorrhage. The formation of a spontaneous cyst within a BAVM, without history of hemorrhage or gamma knife surgery, is rare and has an unknown pathophysiology.… Read More...

Diffusion-tensor fractional anisotropy (FA) has been used for predicting stroke outcome. However, most previous studies focused on patients with either hemorrhagic or ischemic stroke. The aim of this study was to assess the correlation between FA and outcome for patients with hemorrhagic stroke and those with ischemic stroke, and then compare their correlation patterns.… Read More...

The Pipeline embolization device (PED), a type of flow diverter, has become an appealing alternative treatment option for large or giant and wide-necked intracranial aneurysms. Carotid cavernous fistula (CCF) resulting from delayed aneurysmal rupture is a rare complication of PED placement with unknown pathophysiology.… Read More...

Lifestyle modification programs have improved the achievement of risk factor targets in a variety of clinical settings, including patients who have previously suffered a stroke or transient ischemic attack and those with multiple risk factors. Stenting Aggressive Medical Management for Prevention of Recurrent Stroke in Intracranial Stenosis (SAMMPRIS) was the first vascular disease prevention trial to provide a commercially available lifestyle modification program to enhance risk factor control.… Read More...

Prehospital stroke triage is challenged by endovascular treatment for large vessel occlusion (LVO) being available only in major stroke centers. Conjugate eye deviation (CED) is closely related to LVO, whereas common stroke signs (face-arm-leg-speech-visual) screen stroke. We hypothesized that combining CED with common stroke signs would yield a prehospital stroke scale for identifying both LVO and stroke in general.… Read More...
