Intensive blood pressure reduction in acute cerebral haemorrhage trial (INTERACT): a randomised pilot trial
TLDR
Early intensive BP-lowering treatment is clinically feasible, well tolerated, and seems to reduce haematoma growth in ICH, a large randomised trial needed to define the effects on clinical outcomes across a broad range of patients with ICH.
Poststroke Fatigue: Characteristics and Related Factors
TLDR
Fatigue is a fairly common sequela of stroke patients, exerting an impact on their daily activities, especially physical ones, and strategies to improve the PoSF should be individualized according to the causative factors.
Significance of Susceptibility Vessel Sign on T2*-Weighted Gradient Echo Imaging for Identification of Stroke Subtypes
TLDR
A retrospective study on acute ischemic stroke patients who underwent diffusion-weighted imaging, GRE and magnetic resonance angiography within 24 hours of stroke onset found that GRE SVS was an independent predictor of cardioembolic stroke and subsequent recanalization.
DWI-FLAIR mismatch for the identification of patients with acute ischaemic stroke within 4·5 h of symptom onset (PRE-FLAIR): a multicentre observational study
TLDR
Patients with an acute ischaemic lesion detected with DWI but not with FLAIR imaging are likely to be within a time window for which thrombolysis is safe and effective, and lend support to the use of DWI-FLAIR mismatch for selection of patients in a future randomised trial of thrombalysis in patients with unknown time of symptom onset.
Cytokines and adhesion molecules in stroke and related diseases

    Journal of the Neurological Sciences
  • 1 May 1996
TLDR
Changes of certain cytokines or adhesion molecules have been detected in the serum or cerebrospinal fluid of patients with stroke and related diseases suggesting that these molecules play a role in the pathogenesis of human stroke.
Pure lateral medullary infarction: clinical-radiological correlation of 130 acute, consecutive patients.
  • Jong S Kim
  • Medicine
    Brain : a journal of neurology
  • 1 August 2003
TLDR
It is concluded that rostro-caudal and horizontal classification of MRI helps to understand the clinical and, partly, the aetiopathogenetic aspect of the heterogeneous LMI syndrome.
Bleeding Risk Analysis in Stroke Imaging Before ThromboLysis (BRASIL): Pooled Analysis of T2*-Weighted Magnetic Resonance Imaging Data From 570 Patients
TLDR
The data suggest that if there is any increased risk of SICH attributable to CMBs, it is likely to be small and unlikely to exceed the benefits of thrombolytic therapy.
Undernutrition as a predictor of poor clinical outcomes in acute ischemic stroke patients.
TLDR
It is suggested that acute ischemic stroke patients with baseline undernutrition are being undernourished during hospitalization, and strategic nutritional support, particularly in patients with Baseline undernutrition, may improve clinical outcomes.
Diversity of Single Small Subcortical Infarctions According to Infarct Location and Parent Artery Disease: Analysis of Indicators for Small Vessel Disease and Atherosclerosis
TLDR
Differences in SVD and atherosclerosis indicators suggest that SSSI has a heterogeneous pathogenesis according to lesion location and the presence of PAD.
Cryptogenic Stroke and High-Risk Patent Foramen Ovale: The DEFENSE-PFO Trial.
  • Pil Hyung Lee, Jae-Kwan Song, +17 authors Seung-Jung Park
  • Medicine
    Journal of the American College of Cardiology
  • 22 May 2018
TLDR
PFO closure in patients with high-risk PFO characteristics resulted in a lower rate of the primary endpoint as well as stroke recurrence, as evaluated by transesophageal echocardiography.
