BACKGROUND: The "drip-and-ship" paradigm is an important treatment modality for acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients who do not have immediate access to a comprehensive stroke center (CSC). Intravenous thrombolysis is initiated at a primary stroke center followed by expeditious transfer to a CSC. We sought to determine factors associated with poor outcomes in drip-and-ship AIS patients transferred to a CSC. METHODS: This study is a retrospective analysis of 130 consecutive drip-and-ship patients transferred by ambulance to a single CSC between July 2012 and June 2014...

OBJECTIVE: Increased blood pressure (BP) management following acute ischemic stroke (AIS) remains controversial. This study aimed to identify the association between BP and clinical outcomes in AIS patients administered lytic medication in the TIMS-China (thrombolysis implementation and monitor of acute ischemic stroke in China) database. METHODS: The sample comprised 1128 patients hospitalized within 4.5 hours (h) of AIS for intravenous recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (i...

Acute basilar artery occlusion has been managed aggressively with various modalities due to its potentially debilitating outcome. While intra-arterial mechanical thrombectomy with stentriever has established clear evidence for anterior circulation stroke with large vessel occlusion as an adjunct to intravenous thrombolysis or the sole modality in intravenous thrombolysis ineligible patients, similar high-level evidence was not available for intra-arterial mechanical thrombectomy of posterior circulation stroke with acute basilar artery occlusion...

BACKGROUND: The relationship between hyperglycemia and arterial recanalization following intravenous recombinant tissue-plasminogen activator treatment in acute ischemic stroke is not well understood. AIM: We aimed to evaluate the effects of hyperglycemia in thrombolysed ischemic stroke patients on recanalization rate and clinical outcome. METHODS: We studied 348 (231 subjects from the CLOTBUST databank and 117 subjects from the CLOTBUST trial phase II) with documented intracranial artery occlusion treated with intravenous recombinant tissue-plasminogen activator...

BACKGROUND: Acute ischemic strokes involving occlusion of large vessels usually recanalize poorly following treatment with intravenous thrombolysis. Recent studies have shown higher recanalization and higher good outcome rates with endovascular therapy compared with best medical management alone. A systematic review and meta-analysis investigating the benefits of all randomized controlled trials of endovascular thrombectomy where at least 25% of patients were treated with a thrombectomy device for the treatment of acute ischemic stroke compared with best medical treatment have yet to be performed...

BACKGROUND: The use of mechanical thrombectomy in the management of acute ischemic stroke is becoming increasingly popular. OBJECTIVE: To identify notable factors that affect outcome, revascularization, and complications in patients with acute ischemic stroke treated with the Solitaire Flow Restoration Revascularization device. METHODS: Eighty-nine patients treated with the Solitaire Flow Restoration Revascularization device (ev3/Covidien Vascular Therapies, Irvine, California) were retrospectively analyzed...

Lacunar infarcts/lacunes, white matter hyperintensities (WMH), and cerebral microbleeds (CMBs) are considered various manifestations of cerebral small vessel disease (SVD). Since the exact mechanisms of these manifestations differ, their associated risk factors differ. High blood pressure is the most consistent risk factor for all of these manifestations. However, a "J curve" phenomenon in terms of blood pressure probably exists for WMH. The association between cholesterol levels and lacunar infarcts/lacunes or WMH was less consistent and sometimes conflicting; a low cholesterol level probably increases the risk of CMBs...

OBJECTIVE: Postthrombolytic intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is an infrequent occurrence in patients with acute ischemic stroke. There is controversy surrounding the value of neurosurgical treatment of symptomatic hematomas in these patients and whether availability of neurosurgical treatment is a necessary prerequisite for administration of thrombolytic agents. We report the frequency and outcomes of patients who undergo craniotomy for postthrombolytic ICH. METHODS: Patients with acute ischemic stroke who experienced postthrombolytic ICH were identified using the Nationwide Inpatient Sample from 2002-2010 and International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification codes...

BACKGROUND: The emergency management of patients with acute ischemic stroke (IS) using oral anticoagulants (OAC) represents a great challenge. Effective anticoagulation predisposes to bleeding and represents a contraindication for systemic thrombolysis. However, patients on OAC can receive intravenous thrombolysis with recombinant tissue-type plasminogen activator if the international normalized ratio (INR) does not exceed 1.7, but data regarding the risk of hemorrhagic complications are highly controversial...

BACKGROUND: Thrombolysis of ischemic stroke patients presenting with mild symptoms is controversial. AIM: We aimed to describe the clinical outcome and frequency of infarcts and symptomatic intracerebral hemorrhages on follow-up imaging of such thrombolysis-treated patients. METHODS: Our cohort included 1398 consecutive ischemic stroke patients treated with intravenous thrombolysis at the Helsinki University Central Hospital, years 1995-2010...

BACKGROUND: There is limited knowledge on the radiographic features of thrombolysis-induced hemorrhage. The factors that influence early hematoma expansion have not been elucidated. METHODS: Patients presenting with a symptomatic intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) as a result of intravenous (IV) thrombolysis with tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) for acute ischemic stroke and had noncontrast computed tomographic (CT) scans of the head were included in this retrospective study...

BACKGROUND: Symptomatic intracerebral hemorrhage (sICH) is the most devastating complication of thrombolytic therapy for acute stroke. It is not clear whether patients with sICH continue to bleed after diagnosis, nor has the most appropriate treatment been determined. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of our prospectively collected Get With the Guidelines-Stroke database between April 1, 2003, and December 31, 2007. Radiologic images and all procoagulant agents used were reviewed...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Stents have been reported as an option for improvement of the recanalization rate in AIS. The authors have also used intracranial stents in failed cases of IAT with pharmacologic and mechanical methods since 2004. We retrospectively reviewed our cases of intracranial stent use for IAT of AIS for recanalization and as a rescue procedure for iatrogenic intracranial vascular dissection during IAT. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-two patients, who were diagnosed with AIS, were treated with intracranial stents (28 balloon-mounted and 7 self-expandable stents) at our neurovascular center between April 2004 and December 2008...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The optimal management of blood pressure (BP) in acute stroke remains unclear. For ischemic stroke treated with intravenous thrombolysis, current guidelines suggest pharmacological intervention if systolic BP exceeds 180 mm Hg. We determined retrospectively the association of BP and antihypertensive therapy with clinical outcomes after stroke thrombolysis. METHODS: The SITS thrombolysis register prospectively recorded 11 080 treatments from 2002 to 2006...

The last decade has seen several major technological advances in vascular neuroradiology, the most clinically significant of which have been the facility to image the brain and the extracranial carotid bifurcation noninvasively with accuracy and safety. Another major advance has been unequivocal evidence from formal statistical overviews that antiplatelet therapy, particularly aspirin, reduces the risk of serious vascular events by about 25%. These advances have changed clinical practice such that most patients presenting with symptoms suggestive of cerebral ischaemia should now have cranial CT to exclude intracerebral hemorrhage, not only because the causes and prognosis of cerebral ischaemia differ from those of intracerebral hemorrhage, but because many patients with cerebral ischaemia should be considered for antiplatelet therapy...
