BACKGROUND Ischaemic stroke can result from a temporary or permanent occlusion of intracranial arteries. In the hyperacute stage of the disease cerebrovascular ultrasound can be used to determine the vascular pathology, but the significance of very early findings on ultrasound is unclear.

BACKGROUND In patients with patent foramen ovale (PFO) there is evidence supporting the hypothesis of a change in right-to-left shunt (RLS) over time. Proven, this could have implications for the care of patients with PFO and a history of stroke. The following study addressed this hypothesis in a cohort of patients with stroke and PFO. METHODS The RLS(More)
Accurate assessment of stroke is critical for patient prognosis and selection of appropriate treatment regimens in order to optimize patient outcomes. Advanced neurosonologic techniques are straightforward, portable, and cost-effective, representing significant advantages over other noninvasive imaging modalities for monitoring of the hemodynamic status of(More)
