Little is known about within-country variation in morbidity and mortality of cerebrovascular diseases (CVDs). Geographic differences in CVD morbidity and mortality have yet to be properly examined. This study examined geographic variation in morbidity and mortality of CVD, neighborhood factors for CVD morbidity and mortality, and the association between CVD morbidity and mortality across the 245 local districts in Korea during 2011-2015.… Read More...

Depression is a common complication after stroke and has been associated with poor outcome. Thus, it is of great importance to identify potential biomarkers that can aid in predicting and detecting patients with stroke at high risk of poststroke depression (PSD) development.… Read More...

Acute ischemic stroke is a leading cause of death and disability worldwide. Unlike myocardial infarction, there is no current blood test to diagnose acute ischemic stroke. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are very stable in the blood and have been suggested as potential diagnostic markers.… Read More...

Multimodal computed tomography imaging (MCTI) is increasingly used for rapid assessment of acute stroke. We investigated characteristics and final diagnoses of patients treated with recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA) while admission imaging was unremarkable.

Fabry disease (FD) is an underdiagnosed cause of stroke in young adults, but the frequency of this association is largely unknown. We estimated the prevalence of FD in a nationwide cohort of young adults who had stroke and transient ischemic attack (TIA) in Argentina.… Read More...

We report a case of multiple embolic cerebral infarcts associated with nonbacterial thrombotic endocarditis (NBTE) in a patient with adenomyosis. The patient presented with dysarthria, left perioral sensory change, and left-hand weakness. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed multiple vascular territory infarctions involving the bilateral cerebellum and the right precentral gyrus.… Read More...

Despite recent advances in acute stroke care, reperfusion therapies are given to only 1%-8% of patients. Previous studies have focused on prehospital or decision delay. We aim to give a more comprehensive view by addressing different time delays and decisions.
