BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Hospitalist directed care is associated with improved outcomes in several medical conditions. The hospitalist effect has not been studied in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients. We compare length of stay (LOS), outcome, and adherence to "Get with the Guidelines" (GWTG) stroke quality measures among AIS patients admitted under a hospitalist with three other specialties (internist, family practice, or specialist). METHODS: We collected demographics, risk factors and discharge outcomes (modified Rankin Scale (mRS)) for consecutive AIS patients over 4-year period (2010-2014)...

BACKGROUND: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain is highly sensitive for detecting intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). Understanding of the imaging characteristics of hyperacute ICH is limited secondary to availability and increased time to scan relative to other imaging modalities. OBJECTIVE: In this report, we present the MRI characteristics of two patients who developed ICH while on the MRI table. METHODS: A 44-year-old women presented with week-long headache associated with blurry vision and photophobia...

INTRODUCTION: The incidence of recurrent carotid stenosis after carotid endarterectomy varies from 1% to 37% with only 0-8% symptomatic restenosis. Safety of short-term (30 days) dual-antiplatelet therapy has not been established in this type of procedure. AIMS: To investigate the safety of dual antiplatelet therapy after carotid endarterectomy to prevent restenosis. METHODS: We retrospectively identified all the patients who underwent carotid endarterectomy (symptomatic or asymptomatic) treated at our center between July 2010 and July 2013 according to local protocols...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Data from electroencephalography (EEG) in preterm infants and neonates suggest that electroencephalographic abnormalities are likely present during antepartum period or fetal stage. We describe our initial effort to record fetal EEG with emphasis on technical aspects since such technique has not been developed as a viable and reproducible method. METHODS: The fetal heads were located in two pregnant volunteers (29 years old and 26 years old) with 28 weeks of gestation by ultrasound imaging...

BACKGROUND: Patients with transient ischemic attack (TIA) are generally clinically unstable, with fear of developing a handicapping stroke. Identification of those at highest and lowest risk of stroke in the first days and weeks after a TIA would allow appropriate use of worthy secondary prevention strategies. OBJECTIVE: Incorporation of a clinical scoring system, neurovascular imaging, and magnetic resonance-diffusion-weighted imaging (MR-DWI) to help predicting risk of developing an ischemic stroke following a TIA...

BACKGROUND: Syncope is commonly worked up for carotid stenosis, but only rarely attributed to it. Considering paucity of such cases in literature, we report a case and discuss the pathophysiology. DESIGN/METHODS: We report a patient with high-grade bilateral severe internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis who presented with syncopal episodes in the absence of stroke, orthostatic hypotension, significant cardiovascular disease, or vasovagal etiology. We reviewed all literature pertaining to syncope secondary to carotid stenosis and other cerebrovascular disease...

BACKGROUND: Anticoagulation with adjusted dose warfarin is a well-accepted treatment for the prevention of recurrent stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation. Meanwhile, using bridging therapy with heparin or heparinoids before warfarin for initiation of anticoagulation is a matter of debate. We compared safety, efficacy, and tolerability of low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) and unfractionated heparin (UFH) as a bridging method in patients with recent ischemic stroke due to atrial fibrillation...

INTRODUCTION: Intra-aortic counterpulsation balloon pumps (IABPs) have been widely used to augment hemodynamics in critically ill patients with cardiogenic shock and have recently been proposed as a management strategy for subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) patients with neurogenic stress cardiomyopathy (NSC). Prior case series have described the use of IABP as a means to manage cardiogenic shock in this patient population; however, we sought to describe our experience with IABP as a means to wean vasopressor requirement while augmenting hemodynamics and maintaining pressures at goal...

Björn Scheef, Mohamed Al-Khaled
BACKGROUND: Transient ischemic attack (TIA) management requires a cardiac evaluation with a Holter electrocardiogram (ECG), preferably a long-term (24 h) electrocardiogram (LT-ECG), to detect atrial fibrillation (AF), which places patients at higher risk of cerebrovascular events. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of AF using ECG and LT-ECG in patients with tissue-based TIA. METHODS: During a three-year period (starting in 2011), all consecutive patients with tissue-based TIA (no evidence of infarction by brain imaging) were included and prospectively evaluated...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is a relatively safe imaging modality used to visualize intracardiac thrombus. SUMMARY OF CASE: We report on a unique, fatal complication during TEE of embolization of a pre-existing "smoking" left atrial thrombus causing acute bilateral internal carotid occlusion, confirmed on angiogram. CONCLUSIONS: Patients with history of lung pathology, such as COPD, who experience retching and cough during transesophageal echocardiography may be more susceptible to embolization of pre-existing thrombi...
