BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Anterior communicating artery aneurysm rupture and treatment is associated with high rates of dependency, which are more severe after clipping compared with coiling. To determine whether ischemic injury might account for these differences, we characterized cerebral infarction burden, infarction patterns, and patient outcomes after surgical or endovascular treatment of ruptured anterior communicating artery aneurysms. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of consecutive patients with ruptured anterior communicating artery aneurysms...

BACKGROUND: Patients with acute intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) pretreated with antithrombotic drugs may have increased early hematoma growth, which would increase mortality risk. We analyzed the effect of antiplatelet (AP) and vitamin-K antagonist (VKA) pretreatment on ultra-early hematoma growth (uHG), and its relationship with mortality in patients with acute supratentorial ICH. METHODS: This is an observational retrospective study of a prospective register of 197 ICH patients with first computed tomography (CT) scan taken less than 6 hours from ICH symptoms onset...

BACKGROUND: The natural history of basilar artery occlusion (BAO) is devastating, with morbidity rates increasing up to 80%. However, the efficacy of recanalization therapy for BAO has not been established as yet. OBJECTIVE: We analyzed consecutive cases of BAO treated with mechanical thrombectomy (MT) to evaluate its safety and efficacy and to determine factors associated with the prognosis. METHODS: Between October 2011 and September 2016, MT was performed in 34 patients with BAO...

BACKGROUND: Whether to withhold mechanical thrombectomy when the diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) lesion exceeds a given volume is undetermined. We aimed to identify markers that will help to select patients with large DWI lesions (DWI-Alberta Stroke Program Early CT Score, DWI-ASPECTS≤5) that may benefit from thrombectomy. METHODS: From May 2010 to November 2016, we studied 82 acute ischemic stroke patients with DWI-ASPECTS≤5 (43 men, 64.6±14.4 years, NIHSS 18...

BACKGROUND: Neuroendovascular therapy is a common treatment for patients with acute ischemic stroke of the anterior circulation who fail to respond to recombinant tissue plasminogen activator. However, although most hospitals can provide recombinant tissue plasminogen activator therapy, many cannot perform neuroendovascular therapy. Thus, use of a drip-and-ship treatment-liaison system allowing recombinant tissue plasminogen activator-treated patients to be transferred to facilities offering neuroendovascular therapy is important...

For the past 20 years, intravenous recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA) has been the only proven treatment for acute ischemic stroke. Large arteries such as the internal carotid artery, the middle cerebral artery and the basilar artery supply blood to large volumes of brain tissue. When occluded, these vessels may have low response rates to rt-PA resulting in devastating injury and death. Areas covered: In 2013, three trials evaluating the efficacy of mechanical thrombectomy in acute stroke were neutral, however, lessons learned from these trials resulted in a second generation of five trials in 2015 and a sixth in 2016 which all demonstrated significant benefit for select patients...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Whether prior intravenous thrombolysis provides any additional benefits to the patients undergoing mechanical thrombectomy for large vessel, acute ischemic stroke remains unclear. METHODS: We conducted a meta-analysis of 13 studies obtained through PubMed and EMBASE database searches to determine whether functional outcome (modified Rankin Scale) at 90 days, successful recanalization rate, and symptomatic intracerebral hemorrhage rate differed between patients who underwent mechanical thrombectomy with (MT+IVT) and without (MT-IVT) pre-treatment with intravenous thrombolysis...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Sugar- and artificially-sweetened beverage intake have been linked to cardiometabolic risk factors, which increase the risk of cerebrovascular disease and dementia. We examined whether sugar- or artificially sweetened beverage consumption was associated with the prospective risks of incident stroke or dementia in the community-based Framingham Heart Study Offspring cohort. METHODS: We studied 2888 participants aged >45 years for incident stroke (mean age 62 [SD, 9] years; 45% men) and 1484 participants aged >60 years for incident dementia (mean age 69 [SD, 6] years; 46% men)...

OBJECTIVE: To characterize cerebral microbleeds (CMBs) in lacunar stroke patients in the Secondary Prevention of Small Subcortical Strokes (SPS3) trial and to assess their relationship with recurrent stroke and death, and response to assigned treatment. METHODS: SPS3 is a randomized, clinical trial conducted between 2003 and 2011. Patients with recent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-documented lacunar infarcts were randomly assigned in a factorial design to target levels of systolic blood pressure (130-149mmHg vs <130mmHg; open label) and to antiplatelet treatment (aspirin/clopidogrel vs aspirin/placebo; double-blinded)...

BACKGROUND: Over half of patients who receive intravenous tissue plasminogen activator for middle cerebral artery division (MCA-M2) occlusion do not recanalize, leaving a large percentage of patients who may need mechanical thrombectomy (MT). However, the outcomes of MT for M2 occlusion have not been well characterized. OBJECTIVE: To determine if MT of M2 occlusion is as safe and efficacious as current standard-of-care MT for M1 occlusions. METHODS: With institutional review board approval, we retrospectively reviewed records of 212 patients undergoing MT for isolated MCA M1 or M2 occlusions during a 36-month period (Sept 2013 to Sept 2016) at two centres...

BACKGROUND: Stroke is the second most common cause of death, and a common cause of dependency and dementia. Adult vascular risk factors and socioeconomic status (SES) are associated with increased risk, but less is known about early life risk factors, such as education, childhood SES, or intelligence (IQ). METHODS: We comprehensively searched Medline, PsycINFO, and EMBASE from inception to November 2015. We included all studies reporting data on >50 strokes examining childhood/premorbid IQ, SES, and education...

Purpose To investigate whether sinovenous outflow restriction (SOR) is more strongly associated with hemorrhage than cortical venous reflux (CVR) in patients with lateral sinus dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs). Materials and Methods An institutional review board approved this retrospective study and waiver of informed consent was obtained. From 1995 to 2016, 163 cases of lateral sinus DAVFs were included and divided into hemorrhagic and nonhemorrhagic groups based on initial presentation. Their angiograms and magnetic resonance images were evaluated, with two evaluators independently grading CVR and SOR...

Brain and vascular imaging are required components of the emergency assessment of patients with suspected stroke. Either CT or MRI may be used as the initial imaging test. MRI is more sensitive to the presence of acute and chronic ischemic lesions, and chronic microbleeds, but CT remains the most practical and used initial brain imaging test. Although, a non-enhanced CT or T2* MRI sequence showing no haemorrhage is sufficient for deciding intravenous treatment eligibility within the first 4.5h after stroke onset, a non-invasive intracranial vascular study is strongly recommended during the initial imaging evaluation of the acute stroke patient, particularly if mechanical thrombectomy is contemplated...

PURPOSE: Main symptom of mucopolysaccharidosis type IVa (MPS IVa) is progressive systemic skeletal dysplasia. This is routinely monitored by cerebral and spinal MRI. The vascular system is generally not in the primary focus of interest. In our population of MPS IVa patients we observed vessel shape alterations of the vertebrobasilar arteries, which has not been described before. MATERIAL AND METHODS: MRI-datasets of 26 patients with MPS IVa acquired between 2008 and 2015 were eligible for retrospective analysis of the vertebrobasilar arteries...
