BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We sought to evaluate the diagnostic value of echo-enhanced transcranial color-coded duplex sonography (TCCD) and the clinical relevance of vascular pathology assessed by sonography for early clinical outcome in acute ischemic stroke. METHODS We present 23 consecutive patients with an anterior circulation stroke in whom clinical(More)
OBJECTIVES Severe carotid stenosis and occlusion are associated with an increased risk of stroke during and after cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass. Relevance of an impaired cerebral autoregulation caused by stenosis/occlusion is unknown. METHODS We prospectively assessed the incidence of stroke in relation to severity of carotid disease and(More)
Sirs: Essential thrombocythaemia, a myeloproliferative state characterised by a persistent primary increase in platelet counts to levels higher than 600x109/l may be associated with thrombosis and, when there are additional abnormal platelet functions, with haemorrhage [4]. Neurological symptoms almost exclusively due to ischaemia occur in 20–30 % of(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The present study investigated the influence of the antiplatelet agent acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) on cerebral microembolism as detected by transcranial Doppler sonography (TCD). METHODS Nine patients with recent transient ischemic attack or minor stroke of arterial origin were investigated. Eight had not received an antiplatelet or(More)
