OBJECTIVES We carried out this cross-sectional study to explore the association between cerebral large artery lesions and leukoaraiosis in Chinese patients with stroke. The relationship between leukoaraiosis and risk factors of cerebral vascular disease was also investigated. METHODS Data were prospectively collected from patients with ischemic stroke(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE High periprocedural complication rate is a key limitation of endovascular treatment of intracranial atherosclerotic disease (ICAD), despite potential risk reduction of recurrent stroke. Taking lessons from the Stenting and Aggressive Medical Management for Preventing Recurrent Stroke in Intracranial Arterial Stenosis (SAMMPRIS) trial,(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the persistence of newly recognized abnormal glucose metabolism in patients following acute ischemic stroke and delineate the possible predictive factors for this persistence. METHODS A prospective observational study was performed. One hundred and twenty-three patients with acute first-ever ischemic stroke and no previous(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the factors affecting pre-and post-stenting head computed tomography perfusion (CTP) in patients with middle cerebral artery stenosis. A total of 25 patients with severe middle cerebral artery stenosis were enrolled. CTP was performed prior to and following stenting. Scores were allocated to the time-to-peak (TTP)(More)
INTRODUCTION Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is a common complication in acute stroke. Evidence-based guidelines recommend the use of prophylactic heparins in patients with risk of DVT. We aimed to evaluate the clinical practices for DVT prophylaxis in acute stroke inpatients enrolled in a multicenter observational longitudinal study on deep venous thrombosis(More)
Little is known about the associations between serum uric acid (SUA) levels and atherosclerotic carotid plaque vulnerability. The aim of this study was to assess the associations of SUA levels with the prevalence of vulnerable atherosclerotic carotid plaque in a community-based cohort. In the Asymptomatic Polyvascular Abnormalities Community (APAC) study,(More)
