Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is a rheumatic inflammatory chronic autoimmune disease inducing hypercoagulable state associated with vascular thrombosis and pregnancy loss in women. Cardiac, cerebral and vascular strokes in these patients are responsible for reduction in life expectancy. Timely diagnosis and accurate monitoring of disease are decisive to improve the accuracy of therapy. In the present work, we present a NMR-based metabolomic study of blood sera of APS patients. Our data show that individuals suffering APS have a characteristic metabolomic profile with abnormalities associated to the metabolism of methyl group donors, ketone bodies and amino acids...

Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) has an incidence of 1.32/100,000/years in high-income countries, and higher in middle- and low-income countries. CVT is more frequent in infants and children young adults and females, especially during pregnancy/puerperium. CVT are now being diagnosed with increasing frequency because of the increased awareness and higher use of magnetic resonance imaging (MR) for investigating patients with acute and subacute headaches and new onset seizures. CVT rarely present as a stroke syndrome...

Importance: Older age is associated with increased risk of pregnancy-associated stroke (PAS). Data are limited on age-specific incidence ratios of PAS compared with stroke risk in nonpregnant women. Objectives: To assess the risk of stroke by age group in pregnant and postpartum women compared with their nonpregnant contemporaries and to compare risk factors across age groups in the exposed (pregnant/postpartum) and unexposed (nonpregnant) populations. Design, Setting, and Participants: International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, billing codes from the calendar year 2003-2012 New York State Department of Health inpatient database and population data were used to identify all women aged 12 to 55 years with cerebrovascular events, including transient ischemic attack, ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke, cerebral venous thrombosis, and nonspecified PAS...

: Essentials Little is known about recurrences and pregnancy outcome after cerebral vein thrombosis (CVT). We studied a cohort of pregnant women with CVT. Women with CVT appear at increased risk of late obstetrical complications despite prophylaxis. Risks of recurrent thrombosis and bleeding in women on heparin prophylaxis while pregnant are low. SUMMARY: Background The risk of recurrent thrombosis and bleeding episodes in women with previous cerebral vein thrombosis (CVT) on antithrombotic prophylaxis with low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) during pregnancy is not established and little information is available on pregnancy outcome...

The occurrence of seizures in the peripartum period is a rare but particularly challenging situation. Seizures in the peripartum period could result from three categories of conditions: first and most frequent is the exacerbation of a known pre-existing seizure disorder, mainly epilepsy. A therapeutic evaluation is needed; second is the new onset of seizures due to a non-pregnancy-related problem. An accurate diagnosis and a specific treatment are required; third is range of pregnancy-related conditions. The present review focuses on this third category, with a special attention to disorders occurring in the peripartum period...

Physiologic alterations during pregnancy create an environment for the occurrence of disease states that are either unique to pregnancy, occur more frequently in pregnancy, or require special management considerations that may be different from the nonpregnancy state. In the realm of cerebrovascular disease, preeclampsia, eclampsia, reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome, sources of cardiogenic embolization including peripartum cardiomyopathy, cerebral venous thrombosis, pituitary apoplexy, subarachnoid hemorrhage, intracerebral hemorrhage, and special considerations for anticoagulation during pregnancy will be discussed...

BACKGROUND: Status epilepticus (SE) is a neurological emergency associated with a high mortality rate and long-term cognitive sequelae. Status epilepticus in pregnancy poses a tremendous threat to both mother and fetus, making a correct diagnosis and treatment a challenging task for clinicians. The prevalence, underlying etiology, and outcomes of pregnancy-related SE remain largely unknown. METHODS: We retrospectively studied all SE episodes (n=366) in patients admitted to our neurological ICU over a period of 8...

BACKGROUND: Isolated cortical vein thrombosis (ICVT) being a rare condition (6% of intracranial vein thromboses), no clinical guidelines and few radiologic clues to it have been established. ICVT mostly appears in conjunction with sinus vein thromboses. ICVTs primarily occur during pregnancy and puerperium (35%). The great variability of cortical veins and difficulty identifying small occluded vessels complicate ICVT diagnosis. We present the first case of isolated ipsilateral dural thickening and enhancement as a potential radiologic sign of ICVT shown on magnetic resonance imaging...

Management of venous thromboembolism (VTE) includes evaluation for hypercoagulable state, especially if the VTE occurs in young patients, is recurrent, or is associated with a positive family history. These laboratory tests are costly, and surprisingly, there is little evidence showing that testing leads to improved clinical outcomes. Evidence based on observational prospective studies suggests that optimal duration of anticoagulation should be based on clinical risks resulting in VTE, such as transient, permanent, and idiopathic or unprovoked risks, and less on abnormal thrombophilia values...

BACKGROUND: Pregnancy-associated stroke remains incompletely characterized because of the rarity of these potentially devastating events. We investigated whether mechanism and outcome of ischemic pathophysiology stroke differ between young pregnant and nonpregnant women. METHODS: We identified 135 consecutive women ages 18-40 years admitted to our center from January 2008 through June 2014 with ischemic stroke, TIA, cerebral venous thrombosis, or nonaneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage due to reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS)...

Postpartum headache is described as headache and neck or shoulder pain during the first 6 weeks after delivery. Common causes of headache in the puerperium are migraine headache and tension headache; other causes include pre-eclampsia/eclampsia, post-dural puncture headache, cortical vein thrombosis, subarachnoid hemorrhage, posterior reversible leukoencephalopathy syndrome, brain tumor, cerebral ischemia, meningitis, and so forth. Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) is a rare cause of postpartum headache...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Anemia is often considered to be a risk factor for cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT), but this assumption is mostly based on case reports. We investigated the association between anemia and CVT in a controlled study. METHODS: Unmatched case-control study: cases were adult patients with CVT included in a single-center, prospective database between July 2006 and December 2014. Controls were subjects from the control population of the Multiple Environmental and Genetic Assessment of Risk Factors for Venous Thrombosis (MEGA) study...

Cerebral venous and dural sinuses thrombosis (CVT) is a relatively rare but very serious disease, because of the risk of mortality. Cardinal symptoms are usually severe sudden-onset localized headaches, which may or not be accompanied by focal or generalized neurological deficits or seizures. It is particularly important to consider CVT in the presence of underlying prothrombotic conditions (genetically predisposed or acquired defects of the coagulation system) or well-known risk factors (hormonal contraception, pregnancy, puerperium, smoker status)...
