High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) is an inflammatory marker for the prediction and prognosis of ischemic stroke but there is an absence of evidence for cerebral hemorrhagic events. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of elevated plasma hsCRP and CRP genetic variants on hemorrhagic stroke (HS). Two hundred thirty-six inpatients with HS and 993 age-matched controls from a community-based population were included in a case-control study and four tagging single nucleotide polymorphsims (tagSNPs) at CRP were genotyped...

Background Acute ischemic stroke due to basilar artery occlusion (BAO) is associated with a dismal prognosis and, even though endovascular treatment (EVT) contributed to an improvement in clinical outcomes, patient selection is difficult and frequently results in futile recanalization. We investigated the prognostic value of baseline ADC quantification in patients with BAO undergoing EVT. Methods We retrospectively evaluated MRI at admission in 11 patients with BAO undergoing EVT. Ischemic lesions were defined on baseline DWI and minimum ADC (minADC), ADC ratio and total area were quantified...
