Stenting versus endarterectomy for treatment of carotid-artery stenosis.
Among patients with symptomatic or asymptomatic carotid stenosis, the risk of the composite primary outcome of stroke, myocardial infarction, or death did not differ significantly in the group undergoing carotids-artery stenting and the group undergoes carOTid endarterectomy.
Transient ischemic attack--proposal for a new definition.
The definition of transient ischemic attack (TIA) and the assumptions underlying the definition have been out of date for some time and are no longer consistent with current concepts of brain
Distinct syndromes of hemineglect.
It is proposed that separable components of the neglect syndrome may be associated with damage to discrete areas of the nondominant hemisphere in patients with right-hemisphere stroke.
Recombinant tissue plasminogen activator in acute thrombotic and embolic stroke
It is indicated that site of occlusion, time to recanalization, and time to treatment are important variables in acute stroke intervention with this agent.
Effect of Medical Treatment in Stroke Patients With Patent Foramen Ovale: Patent Foramen Ovale in Cryptogenic Stroke Study
On medical therapy, the presence of PFO in stroke patients did not increase the chance of adverse events regardless of P FO size or the presenceof atrial septal aneurysm.

  • 1 December 1992
Lesion topography and reading ability were analysed in patients with dominant posterior cerebral artery territory infarction to provide a framework for the prediction of dyslexia type and severity based on lesionTopography.
Antiphospholipid antibodies and subsequent thrombo-occlusive events in patients with ischemic stroke.
The presence of aPL (either LA or aCL) among patients with ischemic stroke does not predict either increased risk for subsequent vascular occlusive events over 2 years or a differential response to aspirin or warfarin therapy.
The Harvard Cooperative Stroke Registry
The findings in this study were comparable to those in previous registries based on postmortem data, but new observations include the high incidence of lacunes and cerebral emboli, the absence of an identifiable cardiac origin in 37 percent of all emboli and a nonsudden onset in 21 percent of emboli.
Carotid Endarterectomy and Prevention of Cerebral Ischemia in Symptomatic Carotid Stenosis
For a selected cohort of men with symptoms of cerebral or retinal ischemia in the distribution of a high-grade internal carotid artery stenosis, carOTid endarterectomy can effectively reduce the risk of subsequent ipsilateral cerebral ischemies.
