Reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy (RPLE) is a unique clinicoradiological entity characterized by diverse neurological symptoms with bilateral posterior cerebral white matter edema. It is frequently associated with seizures but rarely with status epilepticus. Periodic lateralized epileptiform discharges (PLEDs) as an initial electrographic pattern in(More)
Background and Purpose. Paroxysmal Atrial fibrillation/Flutter (PAF) detection rates in cryptogenic strokes have been variable. We sought to determine the percentage of patients with cryptogenic stroke who had PAF on prolonged non-invasive cardiac monitoring. Methods and Results. Sixty-two consecutive patients with stroke and TIA in a single center with a(More)
The initial treatment of patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS) focuses on rapid recanalization, which often includes the use of endovascular therapies. Endovascular treatment depends upon micronavigation of catheters and devices into the cerebral vasculature, which is easier and safer with a motionless patient. Unfortunately, many stroke patients are(More)
The present study sought to determine the neuroprotective effect of anthocyanin cyanidin-3-O-glucoside (CG), isolated and purified from tart cherries, against permanent middle cerebral artery occlusion (pMCAO) in mice and its potential mechanisms of neuroprotection. C57BL/6 mice subjected to pMCAO were treated with CG orally. Twenty-four hours after pMCAO,(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Stroke can lead to cerebrogenic cardiac arrhythmias. We sought to investigate the effect of ischemic stroke on cardiac function in a mouse model of permanent middle cerebral artery occlusion (pMCAO). METHODS Twenty-four hours after the induction of focal ischemia, cardiac function was measured in mice by endovascular catheterization(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Some studies report that women are less likely to receive IV rt-PA treatment for stroke than men. We undertook a meta-analysis to determine whether a sex disparity existed. METHODS We identified studies that reported sex-specific IV rt-PA treatment rates for acute stroke. Eligible studies included acute stroke admissions from single(More)
Background. Intravenous tPA (tissue plasminogen activator) therapy remains underutilized in patients with Acute Ischemic Stroke (AIS). Anecdotal data indicates that physicians are increasingly liable for administering and for failure to administer tPA. Methods. An extensive search of Medline, Embase, Westlaw, LexisNexis Legal, and Google Scholar databases(More)
Although patients of cerebral sinus thrombosis after intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) has been previously reported; reports of cerebral venous thrombosis secondary to subcutaneous injection of immunoglobulin (SIG) in conjunction with oral contraceptives are nonexistent in the current literature. We describe here a patient of cerebral venous and sinus(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) is an inflammatory marker associated with subsequent coronary events and neointimal hyperplasia after coronary artery stent placement. We sought to determine if elevated levels of hsCRP are associated with restenosis after placement of extra- and intracranial stents. METHODS We(More)
