Decreased serum brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is associated with post-stroke depression but not with BDNF gene Val66Met polymorphism
Serum concentrations of BDNF decrease in PSD patients and BDNF may play an important role in the pathogenesis of PSD, however, Val66Met polymorphisms are not associated with serum concentrations ofBDNF. Expand
Predictors for Symptomatic Intracranial Hemorrhage After Endovascular Treatment of Acute Ischemic Stroke
Incidence of SICH after thrombectomy is higher in Asian patients with acute ischemic stroke, and Cardioembolic stroke, poor collateral circulation, delayed endovascular treatment, multiple passes with stent retriever device, lower pretreatment Alberta Stroke Program Early Computed Tomography Score, higher baseline neutrophil ratio may increase the risk of Sich.

Hyperintense vessels on FLAIR: a useful non-invasive method for assessing intracerebral collaterals.
The HV could assess non-invasively intracerebral collaterals in patients with steno-occlusive lesions of M1 segment of MCA and it was found that the HV extended to frontal-parietal lobes. Expand
Distal Hyperintense Vessels on Flair: A Prognostic Indicator of Acute Ischemic Stroke
Examining the prognostic value of HVs in AIS revealed that distal HVs are an independent predictor of a favorable outcome at 90 days and was correlated with the presence of LMCs. Expand
Endovascular treatment versus standard medical treatment for vertebrobasilar artery occlusion (BEST): an open-label, randomised controlled trial
There was no evidence of a difference in favourable outcomes of patients receiving endovascular therapy compared with those receiving standard medical therapy alone, and the trial was terminated early after 131 patients had been randomly assigned because of high crossover rate and poor recruitment.

Effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation on motor recovery and motor cortex excitability in patients with stroke: a randomized controlled trial
This randomized, sham‐controlled, double‐blind study was to compare the effects of high‐frequency versus low‐frequency rTMS on motor recovery during the early phase of stroke and to identify the neurophysiological correlates of motor improvements. Expand
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation for rehabilitation of poststroke dysphagia: A randomized, double-blind clinical trial
OBJECTIVE This randomized, sham-controlled, double-blind study was conducted to investigate the effects of high-frequency versus low-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) onExpand
Evaluation of angiographic changes of the anterior choroidal and posterior communicating arteries for predicting cerebrovascular lesions in adult moyamoya disease
The angiographic characteristics of AChA-PComA may predict the onset of certain cerebrovascular lesions in adult patients with MMD. Expand
Prognosis of asymptomatic intracranial hemorrhage after endovascular treatment
In an Asian population, aSICH after thrombectomy may decrease the likelihood of an excellent functional outcome but does not influence a favorable outcome and mortality in patients with ischemic stroke due to large artery occlusion in the anterior circulation. Expand
Safety and efficacy of simultaneous bilateral carotid angioplasty and stenting
Simultaneous BCAS may be safe and feasible for most patients with BCS, with a similar 30 day complication rate to staged BCAS, and Multicenter randomized control studies with larger sample sizes are warranted to further explore the safety and efficacy. Expand
