Risk Factors and Stroke Mechanisms in Atherosclerotic Stroke: Intracranial Compared With Extracranial and Anterior Compared With Posterior Circulation Disease
The prevalence of risk factors and stroke mechanisms differ between ICAS and ECAS, and between anterior and posterior circulation atherosclerosis and Posterior ICAS seems to be closely associated with metabolic derangement and local branch occlusion. Expand
Ischemic Stroke in Cancer Patients With and Without Conventional Mechanisms: A Multicenter Study in Korea
In stroke patients with cancer, d-dimer levels and diffusion-weighted imaging lesion patterns may be helpful in early identification of non-CSMs (especially coagulopathy associated with cancer) and possibly in guiding preventive strategies for stroke. Expand
Ischemic Stroke and Cancer: Stroke Severely Impacts Cancer Patients, While Cancer Increases the Number of Strokes
Recent studies have revealed that the characteristics of cancer-related stroke are distinct from those of conventional stroke, and the importance of a personalized approach in treating stroke patients with cancer is highlighted. Expand
RAPID Automated Patient Selection for Reperfusion Therapy: A Pooled Analysis of the Echoplanar Imaging Thrombolytic Evaluation Trial (EPITHET) and the Diffusion and Perfusion Imaging Evaluation for
MRI profiles that are associated with a differential response to reperfusion can be identified with RAPID, and this supports the use of automated image analysis software such as RAPIDs for patient selection in acute stroke trials. Expand
Management of acute ischemic stroke in patients with COVID-19 infection: Report of an international panel
These practice implications with consensus based on the currently available evidence aim to guide clinicians caring for adult patients with acute ischemic stroke who are suspected of, or confirmed, with COVID-19 infection. Expand
Reperfusion Therapy in Unclear-Onset Stroke Based on MRI Evaluation (RESTORE): A Prospective Multicenter Study
In unclear-onset stroke patients, magnetic resonance imaging-based reperfusion therapy was feasible and safe and compared with untreated controls, the treated group was significantly associated with good outcomes of modified Rankin Scale score of 0 to 2 after adjusting for age, sex, and baseline National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale in logistic regression analysis.

Identifying Target Risk Factors Using Population Attributable Risks of Ischemic Stroke by Age and Sex
Smoking cessation in young people and hypertension and diabetes control in older people may be effective in reducing the burden of stroke on the population and secondary prevention in the elderly. Expand
Functional Role of the Corticoreticular Pathway in Chronic Stroke Patients
The increased fiber volume of the CRP in the unaffected hemisphere seems to be related to walking ability in patients with chronic stroke, and the compensation of theCRP inThe unaffected hemisphere seem to be one of the mechanisms for recovery of walking ability after stroke. Expand
Stroke outcomes are worse with larger leukoaraiosis volumes
White matter hyperintensity volume independently correlates with stroke outcomes in acute ischaemic stroke and is associated with worse 3-month modified Rankin Scale scores at presentation. Expand

Compared to those with small-vessel occlusion (SVO), those with ischemic stroke subtypes other than SVO had a higher risk of recurrent stroke as well as major vascular events, and other common independent predictors for recurrent stroke andmajor vascular events were diabetes and prior stroke history.
