Ischemic stroke is a multifactorial disease with strong genetic elements. The purpose of this case-control study was to find relationships between apolipoprotein E (APOE), angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE), and methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) genotypes and atherosclerosis of the extracranial internal carotid and intracranial arteries in the(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Cardiac myxoma is a rare etiology of stroke. Both cerebral microbleeds and cardiac myxoma may increase the risk of intracerebral hemorrhage after intravenous (IV) thrombolysis. However, data are still limited. We report a case of multiple cerebral microbleeds treated with IV thrombolysis with later findings of cardiac myxoma. (More)
OPINION STATEMENT White matter disease is commonly detected on brain MRI of aging individuals as white matter hyperintensities (WMH), or 'leukoaraiosis." Over the years, it has become increasingly clear that the presence and extent of WMH is a radiographic marker of small cerebral vessel disease and an important predictor of the lifelong risk of stroke,(More)
The utility of the ear crease sign, anterior tragal crease (ATC), as a marker of atherosclerosis is yet to be established. The intima-media thickness of the common carotid artery (IMT-CCA) has been used as a noninvasive surrogate marker for atherosclerosis. History of traditional risk factors for atherosclerosis was obtained from 147 volunteers; ear(More)
BACKGROUND Large vessel atherosclerosis and small vessel disease are two major causes of ischemic stroke. In patients with large vessel disease, the lesions can be located in the extracranial carotid or intracranial arteries. OBJECTIVE To search for the differences of risk factors and inflammatory markers among patients with each subtype of vascular(More)
Concurrent acute ischemic stroke and acute myocardial infarction is an uncommon medical emergency condition. The challenge for the physicians regarding the management of this situation is paramount since early management of one condition will inevitably delay the other. We present two illustrative cases of "hyperacute simultaneous cardiocerebral infarction"(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the outcome of patients with acute ischemic stroke who received or did not receive intravenous fluid. PATIENTS AND METHODS This study was a prospective, multicenter, randomized, open-label trial with blinded outcome assessment. We enrolled acute ischemic stroke patients without dehydration aged between 18 and 85 years with NIH Stroke(More)
