Intravenous thrombolysis using tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) improves significantly the neurologic function in patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS). However, it brings financial burden to patients and is associated with symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage (SICH). Whether low-dose tPA can effectively reduce SICH and has the same efficacy as standard-dose tPA is still controversial.… Read More...

A 28-year-old man without a significant medical history visited our hospital complaining of a headache. Computed tomography (CT) demonstrated thick, calcified vertebral artery (VA) and basilar artery (BA), despite the patient being young. Magnetic resonance angiography demonstrated the absence of the left internal carotid artery (ICA).… Read More...

Stroke is a leading cause of disability. Alternative and more effective techniques for stroke rehabilitation have been sought to overcome limitations of conventional therapies. Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) arises as a promising tool in this context. This systematic review aims to provide a state of the art on the application of rTMS in stroke patients and to assess its effectiveness in clinical rehabilitation of motor function.… Read More...

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) allows noninvasive fractional flow (FF) computation in intracranial arterial stenosis. Removal of small artery branches is necessary in CFD simulation. The consequent effects on FF value needs to be judged.

Hypotension (HT) is well recognized to frequently occur during and after carotid artery stenting (CAS), which sometimes causes postoperative complications such as stroke or myocardial infarction. This study aimed to examine the risk factors associated with HT after CAS based on the hypothesis that overlapped stenting may affect postoperative HT.… Read More...

Results from trials and international registries exhibit heterogeneity regarding safety, efficacy, markers of prognosis, and markers of the need for critical care support after intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) for strokes. The purpose of our study was to indentify such markers after performance of comparisons among patients who received thrombolysis in our intensive care unit.… Read More...

Despite decompressive hemicraniectomy (DHC), progressive herniation resulting in death has been reported following middle cerebral artery (MCA) strokes. We aimed to determine the surgical parameters measured on brain computed tomography (CT) scan that are associated with progressive herniation despite DHC in large MCA strokes.… Read More...

The short-term outcome from spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (SICH) is influenced by local quality of care and population specificities. There are no studies about the SICH mortality in southern Portugal. The objective of this study was to describe the predictors of 30-day in-hospital SICH mortality in Algarve, the southernmost region of Portugal.… Read More...

Limb-shaking transient ischemic attacks (LSTIAs) are a phenomenon that occurs due to transient hypoperfusion to a cerebral motor territory with a chronically outstripped autoregulatory vascular reserve. First described in 1962 by Miller Fisher, the pathogenesis and the global understanding of this presentation have undergone a significant advancement throughout the years.… Read More...
