We report imaging findings of 3 patients with anterior inferior cerebellar artery (AICA) infarcts who presented with atypical clinical findings of cerebellar strokes. AICA strokes are rare, and diagnosis can be difficult because of the high variability of the posterior circulation vascular anatomy.… Read More...

• Brain 1H-MRS showed pathological lactate accumulation in one third of DM1 patients• Lactate was higher in DM1 with higher white matter lesion load and cortical atrophy• Muscle 31P-MRS showed oxidative mitochondrial metabolism deficits in DM1• Muscle mitochondrial ATP production was slower in more clinically affected DM1• In vivo multi-organ evidence of oxidative metabolism deficit in DM1 was provided

It has been hypothesized that ischemic stroke can cause atrial fibrillation. By elucidating the mechanisms of neurogenically mediated paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, novel therapeutic strategies could be developed to prevent atrial fibrillation occurrence and perpetuation after stroke. This could result in fewer recurrent strokes and deaths, a reduction or delay in dementia onset, and in the lessening of the functional, structural, and metabolic consequences of atrial fibrillation on the heart.… Read More...
