BACKGROUND Ethnic differences among first primary intracerebral hemorrhage (PICH) patients in an Israeli biethnic population have not yet been studied. PATIENTS AND METHODS We included in the study 546 patients (counting warfarin-related hemorrhages) hospitalized during the period from December 1999 through June 2008. RESULTS The mean age was 71.1 +/-(More)
Sixty-five years old patient suffering from acute stroke was treated by rTPA intravenously. TCD monitoring of both middle cerebral arteries (MCA) was carried out simultaneously with administration of rTPA. Seven microemboli were found in right and four in left MCA. Duplex ultrasound, CT angiography and digital subtractional angiography revealed occlusion of(More)
OBJECTIVES Patent foramen ovale (PFO) is considered as an important risk factor for cerebrovascular diseases. Nevertheless, the relationship between the distribution of high-intensity transient signals (HITS), resulting from injection of air mixed with saline and detected by transcranial Doppler (TCD), and clinical cerebrovascular syndromes in these(More)
Description Rambam Health Care Campus is the largest tertiary hospital in the northern Israel, serving population of more than two million, and is the tertiary referral center for other regional hospitals. The population of northern Israel is mainly bi-ethnic with almost equal Jewish and Arab population and minimal mingling between these two ethnic groups.(More)
Hypercoagulability is a condition predisposing to arterial or venous thrombosis and is associated frequently with malignancy. We present a rare acute ischemic stroke in a young patient that was the presenting feature for a newly diagnosed papillary carcinoma of the thyroid. Extensive vascular and hematological work-up was normal except for a large patent(More)
This is the first reported attempt to examine the emboliogenic potential of cardiac myxoma in patients with acute stroke through the monitoring of microembolic signals (MES) by transcranial doppler. A 43-year old woman was brought to the emergency department because of acute onset of generalized tonic-clonic seizures and left hemiplegia. A CT scan of the(More)
724 The possible underlying mechanisms of stroke in drug abusers include: acute and severe elevation of blood pressure, cardiac dysrhythmias, cerebral vasospasm, vasculitis, embolization due to infective endocarditis, cardiomyopathy, and foreign material injected under non-sterile conditions. We describe a young drug abuser with lacunar syndrome originating(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE There is no information about the optimal position of a patient for the performance of a transcranial Doppler (TCD) examination to detect patent foramen ovale (PFO). Such information is important to improving the sensitivity of the test in comparison to the gold standard of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). METHODS Thirty-four(More)
