Progression of Blood Brain Barrier Permeability in patients with Acute Ischemic Stroke: from acute to early subacute phase

Abstract

Introduction: Stroke is currently the third leading cause of death and disability in North America [1]. Blood–brain barrier (BBB) disruption following ischemia–reperfusion is associated with clinically important consequences including edema and hemorrhagic transformation (HT). Previous data on BBB permeability changes after acute ischemic stroke (AIS) is… (More)
