Ischemic Strokes Threaten Patients With Reversible Cerebral Vasoconstriction Syndrome

Ischemic Strokes Threaten Patients With Reversible Cerebral Vasoconstriction Syndrome Overview Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) and reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) can lead to ischemic stroke and intracranial hemorrhage. This study aimed to evaluate the incidence of these outcomes. Methods included a PROSPERO-registered systematic review and meta-analysis (CRD42022355704), utilizing PubMed up to

Fatty Acid Intake And Reduced Cardiovascular Event Risk

Fatty Acid Intake And Reduced Cardiovascular Event Risk Overview Recent research has raised questions about the purported benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids in improving endothelial thickness and preventing cardiovascular diseases like coronary atherosclerosis and hypertension. To address this, we conducted a rigorous analysis using Mendelian randomization, leveraging publicly available genetic data from

Hyperglycemia Reveals Mortality Risk In Hospitalized Stroke Victims

Hyperglycemia Reveals Mortality Risk In Hospitalized Stroke Victims Overview The study aimed to assess various indicators of stress-induced hyperglycemia in predicting in-hospital outcomes for patients with acute intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). Utilizing data from the Chinese Stroke Center Alliance database, which encompasses a large, nationwide cohort, the researchers examined stress-induced hyperglycemia through two

Endovascular Thrombectomy Outcomes In Stroke: The Truth About HT Or ICH Risk

Endovascular Thrombectomy Outcomes In Stroke: The Truth About HT Or ICH Risk Overview The study investigated the occurrence of hemorrhagic transformation (HT) and symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage (sICH) following endovascular thrombectomy (EVT) in patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS). Through a retrospective analysis of 118 patients who underwent EVT for acute anterior circulation

Nanosized Traditional Chinese Medicine Technology To Overcome The Blood-Brain Barrier

Nanosized Traditional Chinese Medicine Technology To Overcome The Blood-Brain Barrier Overview This review explores the intersection of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and nanotechnology, known as nano-TCM, as a promising avenue for overcoming the challenges posed by the blood-brain barrier (BBB) in treating central nervous system (CNS) diseases. While TCM has demonstrated efficacy

Brain Injury Devastation: Improving Cognitive Outcomes

Brain Injury Devastation: Improving Cognitive Outcomes Overview This meta-analysis investigates the efficacy of pharmacological interventions in improving cognitive impairments following acquired brain injury (ABI). Cognitive deficits are a common consequence of ABI and significantly impact rehabilitation outcomes and quality of life. Despite the lack of solid evidence for pharmacotherapy in this context,

Rheumatoid Arthritis And Atrial Fibrillation Connection

Rheumatoid Arthritis And Atrial Fibrillation Connection Overview Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), an autoimmune condition affecting multiple organs, has garnered attention for its potential link to adverse cardiovascular outcomes, including atrial fibrillation (AF). Yet, the precise association remains elusive, with conflicting findings in the literature. Our study sought to elucidate this relationship and explore

Dysphagia After Stroke And Depression Symptoms

Dysphagia After Stroke And Depression Symptoms Overview The study aimed to investigate the correlation between swallowing difficulties, known as dysphagia, and symptoms of anxiety and depression following ischemic stroke. Conducted as part of the STROKE-CARD Registry study from 2020 to 2022, the research assessed dysphagia upon hospital admission, its persistence until discharge,

Dementia Risk Assessed By Brain Artery Diameter

Dementia Risk Assessed By Brain Artery Diameter Overview In this study, the association between brain artery diameters and the risk of dementia and stroke was investigated across three distinct population-based studies utilizing conventional T2-weighted brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) images. A total of 8,420 adults aged over 40 years from these longitudinal

Stroke And The Risk Of Parkinson’s Disease

Stroke And The Risk Of Parkinson's Disease Overview This study investigates the incidence of Parkinson's disease (PD) among stroke patients and its association with post-stroke disabilities. Utilizing data from the Korean National Health Insurance Service spanning 2010 to 2018, the study analyzed 307,361 stroke patients and 380,917 age- and sex-matched individuals without
