BACKGROUND: While oral anticoagulants (OACs) are highly effective for ischemic stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation, intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) remains the most feared complication of OAC. Clinical controversy remains regarding OAC resumption and its timing for ICH survivors with atrial fibrillation because the balance between risks and benefits has not been investigated in randomized trials. AIMS/HYPOTHESIS: To survey the practice of stroke neurologists, thrombosis experts and neurosurgeons on OAC re-initiation following OAC-associated ICH...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Whereas intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) is allowed in acute ischaemic stroke (IS) in patients on vitamin K antagonists if INR≤1.7, there is no similar recommendations for patients on direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs), notably due to the lack of coagulation tests to assess the therapeutic effects. Although the literature is scarce, consisting in small case series and retrospective studies, considering the frequency of this situation, the French Vascular Neurology Society and the French study Group on Haemostasis and Thrombosis have worked on a joined position paper to provide a practical position regarding emergency management of IS in patients on DOACs...

The main aim of acute ischemic stroke treatment is the as much possible prompt, safe and effective arterial recanalisation, in order to restore reperfusion into the ischemic brain area. The procedures obtaining this result are rapidly evolving and in the last years, we observed new evidences that affirmed the therapeutical benefit of the concomitant treatment using endovenous thrombolysis and mechanical thrombectomy in selected patients with ischemic stroke. However, all treatments are time-sensitive and the main limitation for their application is represented by the time...

Neuroscience began with neuroanatomy and neurosurgery in Egypt more than 5000 years ago. Knowledge grew over time and specialized neurosurgery centers were established in north Africa in the eleventh century. However, it was not until the twentieth century that neuroscience research became established in sub-Saharan Africa. In most African countries, clinical research focused on understanding the rationale and improving treatment of epilepsy, infections, nutritional neuropathies, stroke and tumors. Significant advances were made...

Since 2011, new oral anticoagulants (NOAC) can be prescribed for prevention of cardio-embolic ischemic strokes in addition to vitamin K antagonists. NOAC are indicated in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation. Although its use is a matter of debate in Germany, the neurological and cardiological societies recommend the use of NOAC over and above vitamin K antagonists due to a better benefit-to-risk ratio attributed to it, especially because of the lower risk of intracranial hemorrhage in NOAC use. A specific antidote is commercially available for the direct thrombin inhibitor dabigatran only...

The major objective of preclinical translational epilepsy research is to advance laboratory findings toward clinical application by testing potential treatments in animal models of seizures and epilepsy. Recently there has been a focus on the failure of preclinical discoveries to translate reliably, or even to be reproduced in different laboratories. One potential cause is a lack of standardization in preclinical data collection. The resulting difficulties in comparing data across studies have led to high cost and missed opportunity, which in turn impede clinical trials and advances in medical care...

Cerebrovascular diseases based on stroke etiology concern millions of people worldwide, and annual rates of disease are still increasing. In the era of an aging society and suffering from a number of risk factors, in particular those modifiable, strokes and muscles' spastic paresis, subsequently resulting in damage of upper motor neuron structures will become a serious problem for the entire health care system. Effective management and physiotherapy treatment for post-stroke spasticity persisted, both in the acute and chronic, is still a significant medical problem in the interdisciplinary aspect...

BACKGROUND: Targeted temperature management (TTM) is often used in neurocritical care to minimize secondary neurologic injury and improve outcomes. TTM encompasses therapeutic hypothermia, controlled normothermia, and treatment of fever. TTM is best supported by evidence from neonatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy and out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, although it has also been explored in ischemic stroke, traumatic brain injury, and intracranial hemorrhage patients. Critical care clinicians using TTM must select appropriate cooling techniques, provide a reasonable rate of cooling, manage shivering, and ensure adequate patient monitoring among other challenges...

BACKGROUND: Better understanding and prediction of progression of Parkinson's disease could improve disease management and clinical trial design. We aimed to use longitudinal clinical, molecular, and genetic data to develop predictive models, compare potential biomarkers, and identify novel predictors for motor progression in Parkinson's disease. We also sought to assess the use of these models in the design of treatment trials in Parkinson's disease. METHODS: A Bayesian multivariate predictive inference platform was applied to data from the Parkinson's Progression Markers Initiative (PPMI) study (NCT01141023)...

BACKGROUND: Delirium is a common syndrome responsible for a large burden of morbidity and mortality. In surgical settings, research into risk factors for postoperative delirium has largely focused on elective orthopedic patients. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the evidence surrounding risk factors for delirium in vascular surgical populations. METHODS: Two independent reviewers searched five databases (MEDLINE, Web of Science, Embase, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, and PsycINFO) from January 1987 to December 2015...

Migraine has been reported as a risk factor for ischemic stroke or cardiovascular events, and dysfunction of endothelial cells has been evidenced in migraine patients. Proangiogenic factors are potential endothelial stimulators, and their disturbances can link abnormalities of endothelium with increased risk of vascular disorders. The aim of this study was to evaluate the levels of circulating proangiogenic factors in sera of migraineurs during interictal period. Fifty-two patients aged 37.9 ± 9.6 years, fulfilling International Headache Society criteria for migraine, were included in this observational case-control study...

BACKGROUND: Timing of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) after onset of neurologic symptoms remains controversial. We assessed the association of CEA timing with postoperative outcomes. METHODS: The Vascular Study Group of New England (VSGNE) database (2003-2014) was queried to identify CEA performed for symptomatic carotid stenosis during the same hospitalization. Cases were divided into four groups based on the time from onset of neurologic symptoms to CEA: group I, <2 days; group II, 2 to 5 days; group III, ≥6 days; and group IV, same-day CEA...
