To investigate the relationship between Silent Cerebral Infarction (SCI) and cognitive impairment to testify that Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) is a more sensitive screening tool than the Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) to identify cognitive deficits in patients with SCI. We recruited 196 individuals in Shanghai of China and divided them into 2(More)
AIMS Considering that cerebral infarction (CI) may share a common etiological basis with coronary artery disease (CAD), we evaluated six CAD-related single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) on 9p21 for investigating the effect of 9p21 on CI or carotid plaque in the Chinese Han population. METHODS Altogether, 528 patients with noncardioembolic CI (375 with(More)
With changes of underlying surface in Zhangwei River Basin in recent years, it is necessary to build distributed flood forecasting model in upper stream of Zhangwei River Basin to study the hydrologic processes, which can also provide technical support for the flood control department. Based on the physically characterized distributed hydrological model -(More)
To study the relationship between nocturnal blood pressure (BP) variation and spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) among Chinese hypertensive patients and its clinical significance, the authors retrospectively screened 371 patients with primary hypertension (189 patients with ICH, 182 patients without ICH) in Shanghai and analyzed their demographics,(More)
Painless aortic dissections in general are uncommon and are frequently misdiagnosed. Here we reported a rare case of acute ischemic stroke secondary to completely painless acute full-length dissection (DeBakey I) and provide a brief review of the literature. A 56-year-old man was referred to our department with right hemiplegia. Ischaemic stroke and(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The 1/2ABC formula is the method most commonly used in clinical practice to rapidly estimate intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) volume. We aimed to compare this method with the alternative '2/3Sh' formula for both regularly and irregularly-shaped hematomas. METHODS Computed tomography (CT) images from 344 ICH patients (median volume:(More)
Recent research on genome-wide associations has implicated that the serum resistin level and its gene polymorphism are associated with cerebral infarction (CI) morbidity and prognosis, and could thereby regulate CI. This study aimed to investigate the association between the resistin single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and the susceptibility to CI in the(More)
The post-stroke angiogenic response is accompanied by changes of tight junctions (TJs) of the blood-brain barrier (BBB). However, the precise dynamic change of TJ proteins (TJPs) in the different stages of stroke-induced vascular remodeling and the molecules mediating these processes have yet to be fully defined. To investigate the temporal relationship(More)
BACKGROUND Atherosclerosis is a complicated disease governed by genetic, environmental and vascular risk factors, while its relationship with specific genes is still unclear. In recent days, it has been discovered that the single-nucleotide polymorphisms of chromosomal region 9p21 were relevant with the genetic susceptibility of Atherosclerosis. We aimed to(More)
