A 49-year-old man presented with a 1-day history of multiple transient episodes of right-sided weakness. The episodes were stereotypical, precipitated by exertion, and lasted 5 to 10 minutes. He denied any chest pain, palpitation, headache, or injury. He was a chronic smoker (40 cigarettes per day for 20 years) and denied any past or family history of hypertension, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, stroke, or ischemic heart disease. On arrival, he was fully conscious and oriented and had…

Reversal of the neurological deficit in acute stroke with the signal of efficacy trial of auto-BPAP to limit damage from suspected sleep apnea (Reverse-STEAL): study protocol for a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
This study aims to examine the hypothesis that early non-invasive ventilation with auto-titrating bilevel positive airway pressure (auto-BPAP) positively affects short-term clinical outcomes in AIS patients and provide preliminary data to power a subsequent phase III study.
Brain Oxygen Optimization in Severe Traumatic Brain Injury (BOOST-3): a multicentre, randomised, blinded-endpoint, comparative effectiveness study of brain tissue oxygen and intracranial pressure monitoring versus intracranial pressure alone
TLDR
This study will assess whether the addition of a brain tissue oxygenation (PbtO2) monitor prevents more secondary injuries that will translate into improved functional outcome.
Notch inhibitor can attenuate apparent diffusion coefficient and improve neurological function through downregulating NOX2-ROS in severe traumatic brain injury
TLDR
DAPT Notch signal inhibitors can inhibit NOX2-ROS generation, reduce the ADC values, relieve cerebral edema, and improve nerve function, which indicated that DAPT significantly reduced the ADCvalues and improved the neurological function after TBI.
PERFUSIÓN DE LUJO VERSUS TRANSFORMACIÓN HEMORRÁGICA DE UN ACCIDENTE CEREBROVASCULAR AGUDO ( ACVA ) ISQUÉMICO EN LA TAC
TLDR
Los objetivos docentes de this poster educativo son Reconocer las principales caracteristicas radiologicas en the TAC cerebral de la perfusion de lujo para distinguirla de un resangrado tras un accidente cerebrovascular agudo ( ACVA) isquemico.

Reversed Robin Hood Syndrome in Acute Ischemic Stroke Patients
TLDR
If the steal is confirmed as the cause of neurological worsening, reversed Robin Hood syndrome may identify a target group for testing blood pressure augmentation and noninvasive ventilatory correction in stroke patients.
Heads down
TLDR
Investigating the effect of HOB positions in real time on residual blood flow velocity in acutely occluded arteries causing stroke found patients with acute (<24 hours) ischemic stroke may benefit from lower head-of-the-bed positions to promote residualBlood flow to ischeMIC brain tissue.
Acetazolamide Reactivity on 123I-IMP Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography in Patients with Major Cerebral Artery Occlusive Disease: Correlation with Positron Emission Tomography Parameters
TLDR
It is demonstrated that SPECT studies with an acetazolamide challenge can detect the Stage II hemodynamic failure in stroke patients with minimal or no infarction.
Estimation of Cerebrovascular Reactivity Using Transcranial Doppler, Including the Use of Breath‐Holding as the Vasodilatory Stimulus
TLDR
The breath-holding method offers potential as a convenient, well-tolerated screening method of assessing carbon dioxide reactivity not requiring the administration of carbon dioxide, although further validation against more established methods of measuring cerebrovascular reserve is first required.
Heads down: flat positioning improves blood flow velocity in acute ischemic stroke.
TLDR
I read with great interest the article regarding down head positioning promoting higher flow velocities in median cerebral artery and the authors should provide the information regarding the length of the effectiveness of this positioning.
