The changing landscape of ischaemic brain injury mechanisms
Thrombolysis has become established as an acute treatment for human stroke. But despite multiple clinical trials, neuroprotective strategies have yet to be proved effective in humans. Here we discuss… Expand
Critical Care Management of Patients Following Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage: Recommendations from the Neurocritical Care Society’s Multidisciplinary Consensus Conference
Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is an acute cerebrovascular event which can have devastating effects on the central nervous system as well as a profound impact on several other organs. SAH patients are… Expand
Brain tissue responses to ischemia.
The brain is particularly vulnerable to ischemia. Complete interruption of blood flow to the brain for only 5 minutes triggers the death of vulnerable neurons in several brain regions, whereas 20–40… Expand
Potassium Channel Blockers Attenuate Hypoxia- and Ischemia-Induced Neuronal Death In Vitro and In Vivo
Background and Purpose— In light of recent evidence suggesting that an upregulation of K+ efflux mediated by outward delayed rectifier (IK) channels promotes central neuronal apoptosis, we sought to… Expand

BACKGROUND Spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a rare, but serious etiology of headache. The diagnosis of SAH is especially challenging in alert, neurologically intact patients, as missed or… Expand
Clinical Features and Outcome in North American Adults With Moyamoya Phenomenon
Background and Purpose— To describe baseline clinical features and outcomes of adults with moyamoya phenomenon treated at a single North American institution. Methods— We identified 34 adults with… Expand
Update on the natural history of cavernous malformations and factors predicting aggressive clinical presentation.
Cavernous malformations (CMs) are angiographically occult, low-pressure neurovascular lesions with distinct imaging and clinical characteristics. They present with seizure, neurological compromise… Expand

Significance One of the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA), which is a strong and independent risk factor for cerebral hemorrhage, ischemic stroke, and… Expand
Diagnostic and Prognostic Utility of the Synaptic Marker Neurogranin in Alzheimer Disease.
IMPORTANCE Synaptic loss is an early pathologic substrate of Alzheimer disease (AD). Neurogranin is a postsynaptic neuronal protein that has demonstrated utility as a cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) marker… Expand
