OBJECTIVE Large vessel occlusion in acute ischemic stroke is associated with low recanalization rates under intravenous thrombolysis. We evaluated the safety and efficacy of the Solitaire AB stent in treating acute ischemic stroke. METHODS Patients presenting with acute ischemic stroke were prospectively evaluated. The neurological outcomes were assessed(More)
INTRODUCTION Moyamoya disease was first believed to be confined to Japan, but over the years it has been reported all over the world. We report seven cases from the University Hospital of the Faculty of Medicine of Ribeirão Preto, University of São Paulo with a review of the previously described cases in Brazil. MATERIAL AND METHODS The diagnosis was(More)
Stroke is one of the main causes of permanent lesions in adults and can provoke global motor sequels, speech and language alterations, and swallowing. During the acute phase, the detection of aspiration risks is essential to prevent lung complications and to allow appropriate therapeutic interventions, making possible precocious oral feeding. In the(More)
Functional neuroimaging techniques have greatly contributed to better understand neurophysiological processes that occur after a brain insult. Among all techniques, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has interesting advantages such as non-invasiveness and good spatial resolution. Therefore, fMRI has motivated a number of researchers to perform(More)
Motor rehabilitation of stroke survivors may include functional and/or nonfunctional strategy. The present study aimed to compare the effect of these two rehabilitation strategies by means of clinical scales and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI). Twelve hemiparetic chronic stroke patients were selected. Patients were randomly assigned a(More)
UNLABELLED Mechanical thrombectomy as an adjunctive to intravenous thrombolysis is now the standard treatment for acute ischemic stroke (AIS) due to large vessel occlusions. However, the best management of acute carotid tandem occlusions (CTO) remains controversial. METHOD Twenty patients underwent endovascular treatment of acute CTO. The primary endpoint(More)
OBJECTIVE Scarce data are available on the occurrence of symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage related to intravenous thrombolysis for acute stroke in South America. We aimed to address the frequency and clinical predictors of symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage after stroke thrombolysis at our tertiary emergency unit in Brazil. METHOD We reviewed the(More)
Neurosonological studies, specifically transcranial Doppler (TCD) and transcranial color-coded duplex (TCCD), have high level of specificity and sensitivity and they are used as complementary tests for the diagnosis of brain death (BD). A group of experts, from the Neurosonology Department of the Brazilian Academy of Neurology, created a task force to(More)
INTRODUCTION Early carotid revascularization (≤ 14 days) is recommended for symptomatic carotid stenosis. Carotid artery stenting (CAS) has become an alternative to carotid endarterectomy (CEA); however, safety data on early CAS is controversial. The study aims to compare early versus late CAS, when CAS is performed as a first intention revascularization(More)
OBJECTIVES Carotid artery stenting is an emerging revascularization alternative to carotid endarterectomy. However, guidelines have recommended carotid artery stenting only if the rate of periprocedural stroke or death is < 6% among symptomatic patients and < 3% among asymptomatic patients. The aim of this study is to evaluate and compare clinical outcomes(More)
