BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Micro ribonucleic acid-150-5p (miR-150-5p) regulates proinflammatory cytokines as well as vessel integrity. We evaluated the incremental prognostic value of logarithm (log) of miR-150-5p plasma levels after ischemic stroke. METHODS: In a prospective cohort study, levels of miR-150-5p were measured within 72 hours of symptom onset in 329 ischemic stroke patients. The outcome measures were unfavorable functional outcome (assessed by the modified Rankin Scale score >2) and mortality within 90 days...

BACKGROUND: Following stroke, clinicians are challenged to detect and untangle symptoms of cognitive dysfunction and mood disorders. Additionally, they need to evaluate the informative value of self-reports to identify patients in need of further attendance. AIMS: To examine the association between neuropsychological measures, symptoms of depression, and self-reported cognitive function. METHODS: One-hundred and five chronic stroke patients underwent assessment covering 6 cognitive domains and answered the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale and the Memory and Thinking Scale from the Stroke Impact Scale 1 year after stroke...

PURPOSE: We aimed to assess the safety and effectiveness of mechanical recanalization in patients with ischemic stroke in the anterior circulation within 8 h since symptoms onset and with unknown onset time. We compared time intervals <6 h vs. 6-8 h/unknown onset time, as only limited data are available for a time window beyond 6 h. METHODS: Our cohort included 110 consecutive patients (44 males; mean age, 73.0±11.5 years) with ischemic stroke in the anterior circulation due to the acute occlusion of a large intracranial artery who underwent mechanical recanalization within an 8-hour time window or with unknown onset time...

Prolonged hospital stay and readmission are prevalent problems for stroke patients in Taiwan after the acute stage, partly due to the unmet need of post-acute care. In March 2014, Taiwan's National Health Insurance Administration launched a nationwide Post-Acute Care-CerebroVascular Disease (PAC-CVD) program. The Taiwan Stroke Society, coordinating 11 allied disciplines, took responsibility for the preparation and implementation of the program. As of June 2016, 6839 consecutive stroke patients were enrolled...

Stroke patients frequently display spatial neglect, an inability to report, or respond to, relevant stimuli in the contralesional space. Although this syndrome is widely considered to result from the dysfunction of a large-scale attention network, the individual contributions of damaged grey and white matter regions to neglect are still being disputed. Moreover, while the neuroanatomy of neglect in right hemispheric lesions is well studied, the contributions of left hemispheric brain regions to visuospatial processing are less well understood...

BACKGROUND: Poststroke infection (PSI) is common and is usually associated with a severe prognosis. We investigated the association between PSI and thyroid hormones, which are critical to immune regulation, in patients with acute stroke. METHODS: We retrospectively enrolled 520 consecutive patients with acute ischemic stroke (326 men; age, 71.9 ± 13.2 years) admitted to our department between September 2014 and June 2016. The impact of serum thyroid hormone levels measured at admission (thyroid-stimulating hormone [TSH], free triiodothyronine [FT3], and free thyroxine [FT4]) on the PSI was evaluated using multivariate logistic regression analysis...

Endovascular treatment of acute ischemic stroke in children is increasingly being reported, although the time window for intervention is unclear. We describe a previously healthy 17-month-old child who presented with vertebral artery thrombosis and cerebellar stroke requiring posterior fossa decompression. She later progressed to basilar artery thrombosis treated with mechanical thrombectomy 50 hours after clinical decline. At 3 month follow-up, the patient had a modified Rankin Scale score of 0.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Several studies suggested that statins during hospitalization were associated with better disability outcomes in patients with acute ischemic stroke, but only 1 small randomized trial is available. METHODS: We conducted a multicenter, open-label, randomized controlled trial in patients with acute ischemic strokes in 11 hospitals in Japan. Patients with acute ischemic stroke and dyslipidemia randomly received statins within 24 hours after admission in the early group or on the seventh day in the delayed group, in a 1:1 ratio...

BACKGROUND: Ischemic stroke (IS) is an extremely heterogeneous disease with variable pathogenesis. Due to the lack of early diagnostic markers, the mortality rate of IS remains high. Cumulative evidence shows that long noncoding RNAs among noncoding RNAs play important roles in cardiovascular diseases. In the present study, we focused on the expression pattern of myocardial infarction-associated transcript (MIAT) and its clinical significance in IS. METHODS: Blood samples were obtained from IS patients (n = 189) and healthy controls (n = 189)...

Objective: Predicting neurocognitive and functional outcomes in stroke is an important clinical task, especially in rehabilitation settings. We assessed acute predictors of cognitive and functional outcomes 6 months after mild to moderate stroke. Methods: We conducted a retrospective analysis of acute clinical data and 6-month follow-up telephone interviews for 498 mild to moderate stroke patients. Predictors were sociodemographic variables, the National Institute of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS), basic physical measures, the Mesulam Cancellation Test, the Short Blessed Test (SBT), Trails A/B, and the Boston Naming Test...

OBJECTIVE: Oral Anticoagulation Treatment (OAT) resumption is a therapeutic dilemma in Intracerebral Hemorrhage (ICH) care, particularly for lobar hemorrhages related to amyloid angiopathy. We sought to determine whether OAT resumption after ICH is associated with long-term outcome, accounting for ICH location (i.e. lobar vs. non-lobar). METHODS: We meta-analyzed individual patient data from: 1) the multi-center RETRACE study (n=542); 2) a US-based single-center ICH study (n=261); 3) the Ethnic/Racial Variations of Intracerebral Hemorrhage (ERICH) study (n=209)...
