South Asians (India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Bhutan) are at a disproportionately higher risk of stroke and heart disease due to their cardiometabolic profile. Despite evidence for a strong association between diabetes and stroke, and growing stroke risk in this ethnic minority—notwithstanding reports of higher stroke mortality irrespective of country of residence—the explanation for the excess risk of stroke remains unknown.… Read More...

Individuals with stroke fall frequently, and no exercise intervention has been shown to prevent falls post stroke. Perturbation-based balance training (PBT), which involves practicing reactions to instability, shows promise for preventing falls in older adults and individuals with Parkinson’s disease. This study aimed to determine if PBT during inpatient stroke rehabilitation can prevent falls after discharge into the community.… Read More...

Intracerebral hemorrhage can be classified as either primary or secondary to various conditions such as vascular anomalies or stroke. We present a case of real-time incident detected on digital subtraction angiography (DSA) during thrombectomy in a patient with acute variable M1 occlusion.… Read More...

We used transcranial Doppler to examine changes in cerebral blood flow velocity in children treated with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. We examined the association between those changes and radiologic, electroencephalographic, and clinical evidence of neurologic injury.

In Ontario, the National Rehabilitation Reporting System (NRS) is mandated for use as a measurement of change for stroke patients after admission to and discharge from rehabilitation. The NRS includes the functional independence measure (FIM) and supplementary measurement items developed by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI).… Read More...

The Alberta Stroke Program Early CT Score (ASPECTS) on baseline imaging is an established predictor of functional outcome in anterior circulation acute ischemic stroke (AIS). We studied ASPECTS before intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) and at 24 hours to assess its prognostic value.… Read More...

In neuroendovascular therapy, the effect of arterial stiffness on postprocedural cerebral thromboembolism is unknown. In this observational study, we examined the relationship between cerebral thromboembolism after carotid artery stenting and arterial stiffness.

Most ruptured cerebral aneurysms are small (<7 mm). Evidence suggests low rupture rates for such lesions (<1% per year). Population studies demonstrate a prevalence rate of 3.2%. This study simultaneously estimates the prevalence of aneurysms in a single geographic population while reporting the observed rate of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) in the same geographic region composed of a poor urban minority demographic.
