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)
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. 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)
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)
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)
PURPOSE It is unknown whether neurohospitalist evaluation improves door-to-needle times (DNT) in patients with acute ischemic stroke.The purpose of this study is to determine the impact of neurohospitalist evaluation on DNT for patients with ischemic stroke receiving intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) presenting within 4.5 hours of symptom(More)
We present a case report of a patient who developed restenosis 5 months after initial stent placement. computed tomography (CT) angiography revealed a 70% stenosis, while conventional angiography revealed a 40% stenosis. An intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) was used to assess the degree of narrowing along with the mechanism causing the stenosis. IVUS can be(More)
The California, ABCD, and ABCD2 risk scores (ABCD system) were developed to help stratify short-term stroke risk in patients with TIA (transient ischemic attack). Beyond this scope, the ABCD system has been extensively used to study other prognostic information such as DWI (diffusion-weighted imaging) abnormalities, large artery stenosis, atrial(More)
