Classification of Subtype of Acute Ischemic Stroke: Definitions for Use in a Multicenter Clinical Trial
TLDR
The TOAST stroke subtype classification system is easy to use and has good interobserver agreement and should allow investigators to report responses to treatment among important subgroups of patients with ischemic stroke. Expand
MR imaging of spinal cord and vertebral body infarction.
TLDR
MR is a useful means of detecting spinal cord infarction and associated vascular and bony changes and the patterns of bone marrow abnormalities reflect the underlying pathophysiology of the blood supply to the spinal cord and bone. Expand
Circadian variation in onset of acute ischemic stroke.
TLDR
The data demonstrate that an early morning peak exists for all subtypes of stroke and suggest that the most critical period is the first hour after awakening. Expand
Superior Cerebellar Artery Territory Infarction
TLDR
The clinical and neuroimaging features of patients with recent superior cerebellar artery territory infarctions are prospectively reviewed to identify patients at risk of future brain injury. Expand
Use of antithrombotic drugs in the treatment of acute ischemic stroke
TLDR
Results of a future trial testing the efficacy of antithrombotic drugs would be useful for most neurologists in their management of patients with acute or progressing ischemic stroke. Expand
Design of a multicenter randomized trial for the Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation Study. The Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation Investigators.
TLDR
The Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation Study is a 15-center randomized clinical trial examining the risks and benefits of low-intensity warfarin and aspirin in patients with constant or intermittent atrial fibrillation. Expand
Prospective Study of
TLDR
The results are limited to women, and it is possible that there are sex differ-ences in the strength of association be-tweendiabetes andlargearteryinfarction, and the results are consistent with diabetes being a riskfactor forlacunar infarction. Expand
Spontaneous improvement after acute ischemic stroke. A pilot study.
TLDR
It is suggested that spontaneous, often dramatic improvement occurs in patients with acute ischemic stroke and should be taken into consideration in the design of any trial of acute treatment. Expand
Incidence of seizures with tricyclic and tetracyclic antidepressants.
TLDR
Data indicate that depressed patients taking the tetracyclic drug maprotiline are at risk for developing epileptic seizures. Expand
The Site of the Lesion in Acute Deafness of Multiple Sclerosis - Contribution of the Brain Stem Auditory Evoked Potential Test
TLDR
Two patients with multiple sclerosis experienced acute unilateral deafness during an exacerbation and the brain stem auditory evoked potential test of both patients revealed absence of all waves after wave I, strongly suggesting that acute hearing loss in multiple sclerosis results from involvement of the eighth nerve close to the ponto-medullary junction.
