James E Siegler, Alexander J George, Sheryl Martin-Schild
A "stroke mimic" refers to any clinical condition that causes neurological symptoms clinically indistinguishable from a cerebral lesion that affects a vascular distribution, but is not caused by ischemia. One subtype of stroke mimic, termed stroke reexpression, is a form of mimicry in which previously recovered or improved stroke symptoms recur in the setting of a neurological disturbance (seizure, hypoperfusion state) or a systemic disturbance (toxic, metabolic, infectious). Many reports of stroke reexpression exist in the literature and are well known to clinicians, but there has been no consensus regarding terminology that has been published to date...

BACKGROUND: Nonemergent communications between nursing staff and residents often occur randomly throughout the workday at teaching institutions, resulting in inefficiency and interruptions of scheduled resident educational conferences or periods of overnight rest. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine whether a quality improvement communication strategy can reduce interruptive notifications during scheduled resident didactic sessions. METHODS: We conducted a prospective, mixed-methods trial of a communication strategy between nurses and residents in 3 neurology units of an academic institution...

BACKGROUND: Neurological deterioration (ND) is common, with nearly one-half of ND patients deteriorating within the first 24 to 48 hours of stroke. The timing of ND with respect to ND etiology and reversibility has not been investigated. METHODS: At our center, we define ND as an increase of 2 or more points in the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) score within 24 hours and categorize etiologies of ND according to clinical reversibility. ND etiologies were considered non-reversible if such causes may have produced or extended any areas of ischemic neurologic injury due to temporary or permanent impairment in cerebral perfusion...

Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) is a demyelinating disease resulting from infection of oligodendrocytes in the central nervous system with John Cunningham virus. Although PML is commonly diagnosed in immunocompromised patients with human immunodeficiency virus, it can also arise in other immunodeficient states. In this report, we present an unusual case of PML occurring 40years after chemoradiation therapy for Hodgkin lymphoma in a patient with normal total lymphocyte counts on annual surveillance...

Background. Transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) is superior to transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) in detecting left atrial thrombus (LAT), a risk factor for stroke, but is costly and invasive, carrying a higher risk for complications. Aims. To determine the utility of using left atrial enlargement (LAE) on TTE to predict LAT on TEE. Methods. AIS patients who presented in 06/2008-7/2013 and underwent both TTE and TEE were identified from our prospective stroke registry. Analysis consisted of multivariate logistic regression with propensity score adjustment and receiver operating characteristic (ROC) area under the curve (AUC) analyses...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
James E Siegler, Sheryl Martin-Schild
INTRODUCTION: Although intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (IV tPA) is associated with neurologic deterioration (ND) caused by hemorrhage, whether it attenuates deterioration as a result of other etiologies including progressive stroke remains unexplored. The objective of this study was to determine whether IV tPA is associated with a reduced risk of ND caused by progressive stroke. METHODS: A retrospective investigation of consecutively admitted patients with acute ischemic stroke (July 2008-June 2014) within 4...

BACKGROUND: Elevated red blood cell distribution width (RDW) has been associated with thrombotic disorders including myocardial infarction, venous thromboembolism, and ischemic stroke, independent of other inflammatory and coagulation biomarkers. The purpose of this study was to determine whether elevated RDW is associated with cerebral infarction and poor outcome after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH). METHODS: In this retrospective single-center cohort of aSAH patients (October 2009-September 2014), elevated RDW was defined as a mean RDW >14...

BACKGROUND: In hospitals, effective and efficient communication among care providers is critical to the provision of high-quality patient care. Yet, major problems impede communications including the frequent use of interruptive and one-way communication paradigms. This is especially frustrating for frontline providers given the dynamic nature of hospital care teams in an environment that is in constant flux. METHODS: We conducted a pre-post evaluation of a commercially available secured messaging mobile application on 4 hospital units at a single institution for over one year...

GOAL: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of intravenous (IV) tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) in the treatment of wake-up stroke (WUS) using propensity score (PS) analysis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Consecutive acute ischemic stroke patients meeting inclusion criteria were retrospectively identified from our stroke registry between July 2008 and May 2014, and classified as stroke onset less than or equal to 4.5 hours treated with tPA (control; n = 369), tPA-treated WUS (n = 46), or nontreated WUS (n = 154)...

In this report, we present the case of a 43-year-old woman with AIDS, disseminated aspergillosis, and malnutrition who developed osmotic demyelination syndrome. AIDS-related osmotic demyelination has only been documented in a handful of cases to date, and it appears independent of the classic mechanism of rapid correction of hyponatremia. In this manuscript, we review the six prior cases of osmotic demyelination in AIDS patients and compare their circumstances to that of our own patient. It appears that complications of malnutrition, possibly related to depletion of organic osmolytes in the central nervous system, may place AIDS patients at greater risk of osmotic demyelination...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Early neurologic deterioration (END) occurs in up to one-third of patients with ischemic stroke and is associated with poor outcomes. The purpose of the present study was to determine which stroke etiologies and vascular distributions pose a greater threat of END in stroke patients. METHODS: Using a single-center registry of prospectively maintained clinical data, adult ischemic stroke patients admitted (July 2008 to June 2014) within 48 hours of symptom onset were evaluated according to stroke etiology and vascular distribution using diffusion-weighted MRI...
