OBJECTIVE To measure the association of B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and N-terminal fragment of BNP (NT-proBNP) with all-cause mortality after stroke, and to evaluate the additional predictive value of BNP/NT-proBNP over clinical information. METHODS Suitable studies for meta-analysis were found by searching MEDLINE and EMBASE databases until October(More)
BACKGROUND Headache after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is very common and is often described as the "worst headache imaginable." SAH-associated headache can persist for days to weeks and is traditionally treated with narcotics. However, narcotics can have significant adverse effects. We hypothesize that gabapentin (GBP), a non-narcotic(More)
BACKGROUND Troponin and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels are predictors of mortality following subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Prior studies used strict cutoffs for BNP elevation; however, normal levels of BNP are increased in older persons and women. We explored the association of troponin elevation and BNP elevation adjusted for sex and age with(More)
