Prognosis of Cerebral Vein and Dural Sinus Thrombosis: Results of the International Study on Cerebral Vein and Dural Sinus Thrombosis (ISCVT)
TLDR
A subgroup of clinically identifiable CVT patients is at increased risk of bad outcome and may benefit from more aggressive therapeutic interventions, to be studied in randomized clinical trials. Expand
Diagnosis and Management of Cerebral Venous Thrombosis: A Statement for Healthcare Professionals From the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association
TLDR
An algorithm for diagnosis and management of patients with cerebral venous sinus thrombosis is described and evidence-based recommendations are provided for the diagnosis, management, and prevention of recurrence of cerebral venOUS thromBosis. Expand
Cerebral Venous and Sinus Thrombosis in Women
TLDR
This study identified important differences between women and men in presentation, course, and risk factors of cerebral venous and sinus thrombosis and showed that women with a gender-specific risk factor have a much better prognosis than other patients. Expand
Cerebral Venous Thrombosis Associated With Pregnancy and Puerperium: Review of 67 Cases
TLDR
Cerebral venous thrombosis associated with pregnancy and puerperium has a more acute onset and a better prognosis than thromBosis due to other causes and these findings might be helpful in the diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for patients with cerebral venousThrombotic disease. Expand
Intracerebral hemorrhage in young people: analysis of risk factors, location, causes, and prognosis.
TLDR
ICHs in young people are mainly lobar in location and result from vascular malformation, which causes most cases in which the ICH is located in the basal ganglia. Expand
Hyperhomocysteinemia, Low Folate and Vitamin B12 Concentrations, and Methylene Tetrahydrofolate Reductase Mutation in Cerebral Venous Thrombosis
TLDR
High plasma concentrations of homocysteine and low plasma folate levels were associated with an increased risk of CVT in this population in which low socioeconomic conditions and deficient nutritional status may contribute to its relatively high incidence. Expand
Recurrent primary cerebral hemorrhage: frequency, mechanisms, and prognosis.
TLDR
Rebleeding after a first primary intracerebral hemorrhage is not uncommon; the main topographic pattern of bleeding, ganglionic-ganglionic, is likely the result of hypertension; the less common lobar-lobar pattern probably results from amyloid angiopathy. Expand
Causes and Predictors of Death in Cerebral Venous Thrombosis
TLDR
The main causes of acute death were neurologic, the most frequent mechanism being transtentorial herniation, and worsening of previous focal or de novo focal deficits increased the risk of death. Expand
Dissection of Cervical Arteries: Long-Term Follow-Up Study of 130 Consecutive Cases
TLDR
Vertebral territory dissections had better prognosis than carotid ones, particularly in patients with demonstrated complete recanalization, particularlyIn Mexico, DCA affects young adults and may present with a heralding stroke or TIA, and was associated with a favorable prognosis. Expand
Unfractionated or Low-Molecular Weight Heparin for the Treatment of Cerebral Venous Thrombosis
TLDR
A nonrandomized comparison of a prospective cohort study in patients with cerebral venous thrombosis suggests a better efficacy and safety of low-molecular weight heparin over unfractionatedHeparin. Expand
