  • Stenosis
  • Approximately one-quarter of ischemic strokes involve the vertebrobasilar circulation, and stenosis of the proximal VA may account for up to 20% of these events [2, (termedia.pl)
  • However, in cases of inadequate collateral circulation supply or combination of vertebral and subclavian stenosis, typically symptoms occur mainly due to vertebrobasilar insufficiency [4, (termedia.pl)
  • vascular
  • A meta-analysis also shows that the benefits of statins in reducing the rates of stroke and cardio-vascular events is independent of cholesterol levels and occur with other statins. (ahajournals.org)
  • adults
  • Background Studies have reported increasing incidence of ischemic stroke in adults younger than 50 to 55 years. (ahajournals.org)
  • The aim of this study was to investigate temporal trends of the incidence of hospitalizations for TIA and stroke including sex‐ and subtype‐specific trends in young adults aged 15 to 30 years. (ahajournals.org)
  • Conclusions The incidence rates of first‐time hospitalizations for ischemic stroke and TIA in young Danish adults have increased substantially since the mid 1990s. (ahajournals.org)
  • The objectives of this study were (1) to determine the incidence rates (IRs) of hospitalizations for stroke, stroke subtypes, and TIA in young adults aged 15 to 30 years in Denmark and (2) to identify sex‐specific temporal trends in IRs for hospitalizations in stroke subtypes since the 1994. (ahajournals.org)
  • Background and Purpose- Transient ischemic attack (TIA) in children has received far less attention compared with TIA in adults. (ahajournals.org)
  • Conclusions- In our cohort of children, stroke occurred after TIA at a rate similar to that seen in adults, but the risk factors for stroke after TIA in children are different. (ahajournals.org)
  • Disorders
  • This large, international study was supported by the National Institutes of Health's National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS). (medindia.net)
  • The treatment of sleep disorders immediately after a stroke or TIA may prove to be a novel method of avoiding future strokes and improving outcomes. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Arteriopathy, female sex, and autoimmune disorders were significantly associated with stroke after TIA. (ahajournals.org)
  • Diagnosis
  • Here our highly trained physicians, nurses, therapists and staff members offer exceptional stroke care, from diagnosis to intervention to rehabilitation, as well as preventative education and health screenings. (stjudemedicalcenter.org)
  • Keeping a headache diary to record a description of attacks can help the doctor make an accurate diagnosis. (amazonaws.com)
  • Trauma
  • Spontaneous CCAD occurs with no preceding history of significant trauma, or after seemingly innocuous trauma (examples from our experience include neck torsion during rugby, chiropractor manipulation, climbing over a wall, landing on the head when playing on a trampoline, and falling off of a skateboard).

  • Risk Factors
  • They were assessed for stroke risk factors, ankle brachial index measurement, and laboratory parameters known to be associated with stroke risk. (ahajournals.org)
  • You can reduce your chance of suffering a stroke by gaining a greater understanding of how this condition occurs and by identifying common risk factors. (stjudemedicalcenter.org)
  • Aims We aim to evaluate the trends of AF-related stroke and transient ischaemic attack (AF-stroke/TIA), prior anticoagulant use and their risk factors in different age groups in Chinese population. (bmj.com)
  • The risk factors of stroke after TIA in children are relatively unknown. (ahajournals.org)
  • We aimed to determine the percentage of children who have stroke after TIA and the risk factors associated with stroke after TIA. (ahajournals.org)
  • Methods- We searched the medical records at Boston Children's Hospital for the year 2010 to find children who were evaluated for TIA to determine associated risk factors of stroke after TIA. (ahajournals.org)
  • Cohort
  • Logistic regression was used to calculate odds ratios for factors in our cohort who are associated with stroke after presentation with TIA. (ahajournals.org)
  • focal
  • Recent literature in childhood AIS has focused upon intracranial focal cerebral arteriopathy, which occurs in up to 80% of previously healthy children with AIS [ 10 , Class IV]. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • For purposes of this trial, a neurologic complication was defined as any new focal neurologic deficit or change in mental status occurring during the angiogram or within the following 24 hours. (ajnr.org)
