Stroke is one of the leading causes of death worldwide and should be considered as a medical emergency. It is caused by obstruction of blood flow to the brain and neurons. It is of two types namely ischemic and hemorrhagic. The major risk factors of stroke are hypertension, cardiac diseases, diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia, cigarette smoking and alcohol consumption. ABCD2 score is used to predict the risk of incidence of stroke after a transient ischemic attack. Computed tomography and… Expand
Intravenous Tissue Plasminogen Activator for an Ischemic Stroke with Occult Double Primary Cancer
TLDR
A 71-year-old male with unrecognizable malignancy developed a hemispheric ischemic stroke and received intravenous tPA within 4.5 h of onset, followed by anticoagulation treatment after 24 h of thrombolysis. Expand
Analysis of Octogenarian Stroke Patients under Anticoagulation Therapy with Direct Oral Anticoagulant
Purpose: Stroke severity has been reported to be milder in patients taking direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC), compared with those taking warfarin. However, since elderly patients tend to have multipleExpand
Clinical Features of Patients Who Come to Hospital at the Super Acute Phase of Stroke
TLDR
It can be advised that educating patients by the family doctor might be important for stroke awareness, and relatively younger healthy people will be the main target for the campaign of stroke awareness. Expand
High Blood Pressure After Acute Ischemic Stroke Is Associated With Poor Clinical Outcomes: Fukuoka Stroke Registry
TLDR
It is suggested that a high poststroke BP was significantly associated with unfavorable clinical outcomes in patients with acute ischemic stroke and no evidence of the J-curve phenomenon was observed for each association. Expand
Intravenous Thrombolysis Administration 3–4.5 h After Acute Ischemic Stroke: A Retrospective, Multicenter Study
TLDR
The results support the prescription of rt-PA in AIS patients 3–4.5 h after onset as an effective and tolerable treatment in their functional recovery. Expand
Anti-inflammatory and antiplatelet effects of non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants in acute phase of ischemic stroke patients
TLDR
Even in acute ischemic stroke patients, both apixaban and dabigatran equally showed the anticoagulation activity, and the reduction of inflammatory response might be prominent in apixban, whereas the inhibition of platelet aggregation activity might be evident in dabig atran. Expand
Outstanding Symptoms of Poststroke Depression during the Acute Phase of Stroke
TLDR
Although sleep disturbance was the most frequent symptom of PSD, psychomotor agitation and appetite disturbance were the most distinguishing symptoms in ICH at 1 week and fatigue at 1 month, which might be critical symptoms to suggest PSD during the acute phase of stroke. Expand
Angioplasty and Stenting for Intracranial Atherosclerosis with the Wingspan System: Long-term Clinical and Radiological Outcome
TLDR
One-year clinical and angiographic outcomes of Wingspan stenting were promising for intracranial atherosclerotic diseases. Expand
Clinical features of patients who died within 24 h after admission to a stroke care center
TLDR
The mortality rate was low among patients with stroke transported to the authors’ medical center within 24 h of onset and blood pressure management and the timing of determining indications for surgery are important factors in acute haemorrhagic stroke care. Expand
Detection of occult atrial fibrillation with 24-hour ECG after cryptogenic acute stroke or transient ischaemic attack: A retrospective cross-sectional study in a primary care database in Israel
TLDR
24-hour Holter has a low AF/AFL detection rate, and older persons and those with hypertension or CKD are more likely to be detected with AF or Atrial Flutter using this method. Expand
