Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is frequently obtained in patients with infective endocarditis, yet its utility in predicting outcomes for valve replacement surgery in patients is unknown. The objective of this study was to determine how brain MRI findings impact clinical management and outcomes.… Read More...

We report a patient with an important scenario that may arise in the management of an acute ischemic stroke: the need for a repeated mechanical thrombectomy in the same intracranial artery segment. The patient had a history of atrial fibrillation and a mechanical mitral valve replacement.… Read More...

Penumbra salvage from infarction by early reperfusion within the time window is the target of acute ischemic stroke therapies. Although the penumbral imaging is potently usable in clinic trial, additional work needs to be performed to advancing the field with better-defined, evaluated, and validated imaging measures.… Read More...

Several studies have studied the relationship between lipoprotein lipase (LPL) HindIII gene polymorphism and stroke susceptibility. However, the conclusions remain controversial. To clarify the association of LPL gene HindIII polymorphism and stroke susceptibility, we therefore conducted a comprehensive meta-analysis.
