A spectrum of pathological conditions of impaired blood flow in the brain. They can involve vessels (ARTERIES or VEINS) in the CEREBRUM, the CEREBELLUM, and the BRAIN STEM. Major categories include INTRACRANIAL ARTERIOVENOUS MALFORMATIONS; BRAIN ISCHEMIA; CEREBRAL HEMORRHAGE; and others.
Brief reversible episodes of focal, nonconvulsive ischemic dysfunction of the brain having a duration of less than 24 hours, and usually less than one hour, caused by transient thrombotic or embolic blood vessel occlusion or stenosis. Events may be classified by arterial distribution, temporal pattern, or etiology (e.g., embolic vs. thrombotic). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp814-6)
A major affective disorder marked by severe mood swings (manic or major depressive episodes) and a tendency to remission and recurrence.
Bleeding into the intracranial or spinal SUBARACHNOID SPACE, most resulting from INTRACRANIAL ANEURYSM rupture. It can occur after traumatic injuries (SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE, TRAUMATIC). Clinical features include HEADACHE; NAUSEA; VOMITING, nuchal rigidity, variable neurological deficits and reduced mental status.
The status during which female mammals carry their developing young (EMBRYOS or FETUSES) in utero before birth, beginning from FERTILIZATION to BIRTH.
Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the SUPERIOR SAGITTAL SINUS or the inferior sagittal sinus. Sagittal sinus thrombosis can result from infections, hematological disorders, CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; and NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES. Clinical features are primarily related to the increased intracranial pressure causing HEADACHE; NAUSEA; and VOMITING. Severe cases can evolve to SEIZURES or COMA.

Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.
Localized reduction of blood flow to brain tissue due to arterial obstruction or systemic hypoperfusion. This frequently occurs in conjunction with brain hypoxia (HYPOXIA, BRAIN). Prolonged ischemia is associated with BRAIN INFARCTION.
The formation of an area of NECROSIS in the CEREBRUM caused by an insufficiency of arterial or venous blood flow. Infarcts of the cerebrum are generally classified by hemisphere (i.e., left vs. right), lobe (e.g., frontal lobe infarction), arterial distribution (e.g., INFARCTION, ANTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY), and etiology (e.g., embolic infarction).
A hypoperfusion of the BLOOD through an organ or tissue caused by a PATHOLOGIC CONSTRICTION or obstruction of its BLOOD VESSELS, or an absence of BLOOD CIRCULATION.

Classical phenylketonuria is caused by a severe deficiency of phenylalanine hydroxylase and presents in infancy with developmental delay; SEIZURES; skin HYPOPIGMENTATION; ECZEMA; and demyelination in the central nervous system. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p952).
The identification of selected parameters in newborn infants by various tests, examinations, or other procedures. Screening may be performed by clinical or laboratory measures. A screening test is designed to sort out healthy neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN) from those not well, but the screening test is not intended as a diagnostic device, rather instead as epidemiologic.

Comparative total mortality in 25 years in Italian and Greek middle aged rural men. (1/4408)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: Mortality over 25 years has been low in the Italian and very low in the Greek cohorts of the Seven Countries Study; factors responsible for this particularity were studied in detail. PARTICIPANTS AND SETTINGS: 1712 Italian and 1215 Greek men, aged 40-59 years, cohorts of the Seven Countries Study, representing over 95% of the populations in designated rural areas. DESIGN: Entry (1960-61) data included age, systolic blood pressure (SBP), smoking habits, total serum cholesterol, body mass index (BMI), arm circumference, vital capacity (VC), and forced expiratory volume in 3/4 seconds (FEV); the same data were obtained 10 years later. Multivariate Cox analysis was performed with all causes death in 25 years as end point. MAIN RESULTS: Italian men had higher entry levels of SBP, arm circumference, BMI, and VC; Greek men had higher cholesterol levels, smoking habits, and FEV. Mortality of Italian men was higher throughout; at 25 years cumulative mortality was 48.3% and 35.3% respectively. Coronary heart disease and stroke mortality increased fivefold in Italy and 10-fold in Greece between years 10 and 25. The only risk factor with a significantly higher contribution to mortality in Italian men was cholesterol. However, differences in entry SBP (higher in Italy) and FEV (higher in Greece) accounted for, according to the Lee method, 75% of the differential mortality between the two populations. At 10 years increases in SBP, cholesterol, BMI, and decreases in smoking habits, VC, FEV, and arm circumference had occurred (deltas). SBP increased more and FEV and VC decreased more in Italy than in Greece. Deltas, fed stepwise in the original model for the prediction of 10 to 25 years mortality, were significant for SBP, smoking, arm circumference, and VC in Greece, and for SBP and VC in Italy. CONCLUSION: Higher mortality in Italian men is related to stronger positive effects of entry SBP and weaker negative (protective) effects of FEV; in addition 10 year increases in SBP are higher and 10 year decreases in FEV are larger in Italy. Unaccounted factors, however, related to, for example, differences in the diet, may also have contributed to the differential mortality of these two Mediterranean populations.  (+info)

Short stature and cardiovascular disease among men and women from two southeastern New England communities. (2/4408)

BACKGROUND: Short stature has been associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease (CHD), although the reason for the association remains unclear. Data on the relation between stature and stroke is more limited. We examined the association between stature and CHD as well as between stature and stroke in men and women from two communities in southeastern New England. METHODS: Coronary heart disease and stroke events were abstracted from medical records between January 1980 and December 1991. An epidemiological diagnostic algorithm developed to measure CHD was used in the present analysis. Unadjusted relative risks (RR) and RR adjusted for age, smoking status, obesity, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol <0.91 mmol/l, total cholesterol >6.21 mmol/l, hypertension, diabetes, education, and being foreign born were computed by gender-specific height categories separately for men (n = 2826) and women (n = 3741). RESULTS: A graded inverse association between stature and risk of CHD was observed among men which persisted after adjustment for confounders. Men >69.75 inches had an 83% lower risk of CHD compared with men < or = 65 inches. In addition, the tallest men had a 67% decreased risk of stroke compared with the shortest men. No significant relation between stature and CHD or stroke was observed among women. CONCLUSIONS: These data support the hypothesis that stature is inversely related to both risk of CHD and stroke at least among men. Factors which might explain this association remain to be determined.  (+info)

Genetic and gender influences on sensitivity to focal cerebral ischemia in the stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rat. (3/4408)

We have investigated genetic transmission of increased sensitivity to focal cerebral ischemia and the influence of gender in the stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHRSP). Halothane-anesthetized, 3- to 5-month-old male and female Wistar-Kyoto rats (WKY), SHRSP, and the first filial generation rats (F1 crosses 1 and 2) underwent distal (2 mm) permanent middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) by electrocoagulation. Infarct volume was measured by using hematoxylin-eosin-stained sections and image analysis 24 hours after ischemia and expressed as a percentage of the volume of the ipsilateral hemisphere. Infarct volume in males and females grouped together were significantly larger in SHRSP, F1 cross 1 (SHRSP father), and F1 cross 2 (WKY father), at 36.6+/-2.3% (mean+/-SEM, P<0.001, n=15), 25.4+/-2.4% (P<0.01, n=14), and 33. 9+/-1.6% (P<0.001, n=18), respectively, compared with WKY (14+/-2%, n=17). Male F1 cross 1 (18.9+/-2.4%, n=6) developed significantly smaller infarcts than male F1 cross 2 (32.8+/-2%, n=8, P<0.005). Females, which underwent ischemia during metestrus, developed larger infarcts than respective males. A group of females in which the cycle was not controlled for developed significantly smaller infarcts than females in metestrus. Thus, the increased sensitivity to MCAO in SHRSP is retained in both F1 cross 1 and cross 2 hybrids, suggesting a dominant or codominant trait; response to cerebral ischemia appears to be affected by gender and stage in the estrous cycle. In addition, the male progenitor of the cross (ie, SHRSP versus WKY) influences stroke sensitivity in male F1 cohorts.  (+info)

Delay in presentation of patients with acute stroke to hospital in Oxford. (4/4408)

We identified prospectively all patients (181 patients, 183 episodes) admitted to hospital in Oxford with acute stroke from 1 January to 30 June 1997. Data were inadequate in 30, leaving 153 episodes in 151 patients (63 men, 90 women). Structured interviews were used to investigate the timing of events preceding admission. Most strokes (91%) occurred at home, and 36% of patients were alone. After a median delay of 15 min, 56% called a GP (median 30 min response), 41% an ambulance (median 48 min to admission), and 3% went directly to A&E. Median time from hospital admission to doctor assessment was 69 min. Factors reducing delay were: initially calling an ambulance rather than a GP (p < 0.0001); onset not at home (p < 0.001); symptoms improving between onset and admission (p < 0.002); and altered consciousness (p < 0.002). The stroke was not recognized by 44% of patients, but no significant delay resulted. Overall, 31% were admitted within 3 h of onset, 46% within 6 h. Initial contact with the GP is a major determinant of delay. If acute therapies for stroke become available, GPs should be the primary targets for an educational initiative.  (+info)

Optimal thrombolytic strategies for acute myocardial infarction--bolus administration. (5/4408)

Optimal strategies for thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) are still being sought because the TIMI 3 flow rates achievable using standard regimens average approximately 60%. Double bolus administration of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) is a novel approach with potential for earlier patency combined with ease of administration. We reviewed total patency rates, TIMI 3 patency rates, mortality, stroke and intracranial haemorrhage rates in the major trials of accelerated infusion tPA/bolus tPA/reteplase in acute myocardial infarction. A direct comparison was performed with results of two recent trials of double bolus (two 50 mg boli, 30 min apart) vs. accelerated infusion tPA: the Double Bolus Lytic Efficacy Trial (DBLE), an angiographic study, and the COBALT Trial, a mortality study. The DBLE trial showed equivalent patency rates for accelerated infusion and double bolus administration of tPA. Reviewing other angiographic trials, total patency and TIMI 3 patency rates achievable with double bolus tPA were comparable to those with accelerated infusion tPA or bolus reteplase administration. The COBALT study demonstrated a 30-day mortality of 7.53% in patients treated with accelerated infusion tPA compared with 7.98% for double bolus tPA treated patients. The small excess in mortality with double bolus treatment was confined to the elderly; in those < or = 75 years, mortality rates were 5.6% and 5.7%, for double bolus and accelerated infusion, respectively, and rates for death or non-fatal stroke were 6.35% and 6.3%, respectively. Comparison with other trials demonstrated mortality, stroke and intracranial haemorrhage rates with double bolus treatment similar to those associated with either accelerated infusion tPA or bolus reteplase treatment. Double bolus administration of tPA to patients with acute myocardial infarction is associated with total patency, TIMI 3 patency, mortality, stroke and intracranial haemorrhage rates similar to those associated with either accelerated infusion of tPA or bolus reteplase.  (+info)

Assessment of swallowing and referral to speech and language therapists in acute stroke. (6/4408)

The best clinical assessment of swallowing following acute stroke, in order to decide whether to refer a patient to a speech and language therapist (SLT), is uncertain. Independently of the managing clinical team, we prospectively investigated 115 patients (51 male) with acute stroke, mean age 75 years (range 24-94) within 72 h of admission, using a questionnaire, structured examination and timed water swallowing test. Outcome variables included referral to and intervention by a speech and language therapist (SLT), dietary modification, respiratory complications and death. Of those patients in whom an SLT recommended intervention, 97% were detected by an abnormal quantitative water swallowing test; specificity was 69%. An SLT was very unlikely to recommend any intervention if the test was normal. Inability to perform a water test and/or abnormality of the test was associated with significantly increased relative risks of death, chest infection and dietary modification. A timed water swallowing test can be a useful test of swallowing and may be used to screen patients for referral to a speech and language therapist after acute stroke.  (+info)

Premature morbidity from cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases in women with systemic lupus erythematosus. (7/4408)

OBJECTIVE: To determine rates of morbidity due to cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases among women with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). METHODS: I used the California Hospital Discharge Database, which contains information on all discharges from acute care hospitals in California, to identify women with SLE who had been hospitalized for treatment of either acute myocardial infarction (AMI), congestive heart failure (CHF), or cerebrovascular accident (CVA) from 1991 to 1994. I compared the proportions of hospitalizations for each cause among women with SLE with those in a group of women without SLE, for 3 age strata (18-44 years, 45-64 years, and > or =65 years). RESULTS: Compared with young women without SLE, young women with SLE were 2.27 times more likely to be hospitalized because of AMI (95% confidence interval [95% CI] 1.08-3.46), 3.80 times more likely to be hospitalized because of CHF (95% CI 2.41-5.19), and 2.05 times more likely to be hospitalized because of CVA (95% CI 1.17-2.93). Among middle-aged women with SLE, the frequencies of hospitalization for AMI and CVA did not differ from those of the comparison group, but the risk of hospitalization for CHF was higher (odds ratio [OR] 1.39, 95% CI 1.05-1.73). Among elderly women with SLE, the risk of hospitalization for AMI was significantly lower (OR 0.70, 95% CI 0.51-0.89), the risk of hospitalization for CHF was higher (OR 1.25, 95% CI 1.01-1.49), and the risk of hospitalization for CVA was not significantly different from those in the comparison group. CONCLUSION: Young women with SLE are at substantially increased risk of AMI, CHF, and CVA. The relative odds of these conditions decrease with age among women with SLE.  (+info)

G20210A mutation in prothrombin gene and risk of myocardial infarction, stroke, and venous thrombosis in a large cohort of US men. (8/4408)

BACKGROUND: A single base pair mutation in the prothrombin gene has recently been identified that is associated with increased prothrombin levels. Whether this mutation increases the risks of arterial and venous thrombosis among healthy individuals is controversial. METHODS AND RESULTS: In a prospective cohort of 14 916 men, we determined the prevalence of the G20210A prothrombin gene variant in 833 men who subsequently developed myocardial infarction, stroke, or venous thrombosis (cases) and in 1774 age- and smoking status-matched men who remained free of thrombosis during a 10-year follow-up (control subjects). Gene sequencing was used to confirm mutation status in a subgroup of participants. Overall, carrier rates for the G20210A mutation were similar among case and control subjects; the relative risk of developing any thrombotic event in association with the 20210A allele was 1.05 (95% CI, 0.7 to 1.6; P=0.8). We observed no evidence of association between mutation and myocardial infarction (RR=0.8, P=0.4) or stroke (RR=1.1, P=0.8). For venous thrombosis, a modest nonsignificant increase in risk was observed (RR=1.7, P=0.08) that was smaller in magnitude than that associated with factor V Leiden (RR=3.0, P<0. 001). Nine individuals carried both the prothrombin mutation and factor V Leiden (5 controls and 4 cases). One individual, a control subject, was homozygous for the prothrombin mutation. CONCLUSIONS: In a large cohort of US men, the G20210A prothrombin gene variant was not associated with increased risk of myocardial infarction or stroke. For venous thrombosis, risk estimates associated with the G20210A mutation were smaller in magnitude than risk estimates associated with factor V Leiden.  (+info)

Cerebrovascular disorders (CVD) are a complex medical problem with a wide variety of different etiologies. Symptoms are often atypical and subtle. Diagnostic methods are often invasive. Many autors have tried to find a noninvasive method which could be a screening method. This is Transcranial-Duplex-Doppler ulstrasonography (TCDD). We use it in patients with pulsating headache, vertigo, seizures, hemiparesis and other neurologic dysabillities. Here, we present eight patients between the ages of 1-16, with cerebrovascular disorders. Six of them had ischemic cerebral infarction. Their cerebral circulation was examined by TCDD. We found reduced cerebral blood flow at the site of the ischemic lesion, as a sign of hypoperfusion. Control TCDD findings were normal in patients with transient ischemic attacks, but are unchanged in patients with ischemic insult. Patients with stenosis of the cerebral arteries had typical TCDD findings. Treatment of CVD is often insufficient, because they often cause ...
We investigated 60 patients with cerebrovascular disorders using a three-dimensional transcranial Doppler blood flow mapping system. A composite display of the circle of Willis is created with computer assistance, allowing accurate vessel identification and optimal data documentation of blood flow velocity and direction in the basal cerebral arteries. The basilar artery was insonated in every patient; the middle cerebral artery and the most distal internal carotid artery were found in 95% of the patients, the anterior cerebral artery in 85%, and the posterior cerebral artery in 84%. Insonation problems occurred predominantly in elderly women. Transcranial Doppler blood flow mapping showed an abnormal result in 23 of 60 patients (38%). An intracranial stenosis with greater than 50% diameter reduction or occlusion was found in 10 of 31 patients (32%) with completed stroke, reversible ischemic neurologic deficit, or transient ischemic attack. Collateral blood flow mechanisms could be demonstrated ...

The present study investigates for the first time the relationship of LA volumes and reservoir function with subclinical cerebrovascular disease. We demonstrated that greater LA volumes and smaller LA reservoir function are associated with SBI and WMHV. In addition, we showed that LAVmin is a stronger predictor of silent cerebrovascular lesions than the commonly used LAVmax, and that its significant association with subclinical brain disease persisted after controlling for potential confounders and risk factors.. The mechanisms linking an increase in LA volume with cerebrovascular disease are not completely understood, but it is reasonable to hypothesize that the mechanisms suggested for the relationship between LA size and stroke may, at least in part, apply to silent cerebrovascular disease as well. This is biologically plausible considering that: 1) subjects with subclinical brain lesions are more likely to experience an overt cerebrovascular event; and 2) subclinical and overt ...
A silent stroke is a stroke that does not have any outward symptoms associated with stroke, and the patient is typically unaware they have suffered a stroke. Despite not causing identifiable symptoms a silent stroke still causes damage to the brain, and places the patient at increased risk for both transient ischemic attack and major stroke in the future. In a broad study in 1998, more than 11 million people were estimated to have experienced a stroke in the United States. Approximately 770,000 of these strokes were symptomatic and 11 million were first-ever silent MRI infarcts or hemorrhages. Silent strokes typically cause lesions which are detected via the use of neuroimaging such as MRI. The risk of silent stroke increases with age but may also affect younger adults. Women appear to be at increased risk for silent stroke, with hypertension and current cigarette smoking being amongst the predisposing factors. These types of strokes include lacunar and other ischemic strokes and minor ...

Although this analysis does not allow for distinction between the relative importance of cohort versus period effect on the decline of stroke mortality, our results suggest that both effects are present in the decline of stroke mortality in Spain.. Dating from the beginning of the century, successive generations in Spain evince a decreasing risk of dying of stroke, irrespective of age and year of death, something which can be interpreted as a lowering in the probability of exposure to the risk factors for cerebrovascular mortality. Similar cohort effects have been described in Italy, England and Wales, Australia, Canada, and the United States.8 9 10 11 12 There are no data on stroke incidence trends in Spain, yet incidence decreased in other developed countries until the 1980s.13 14 15 16 From 1960 onward, industrial development in Spain brought with it massive rural-urban migration and a sharp socioeconomic rise, which could go some way to explain a subsequent decline in cerebrovascular risk. ...

This is a case series of COVID-19 with new onset of CVD. Eleven patients with COVID-19 developed CVD following infection. Patients with CVD were older and were more likely to have cardiovascular and cerebrovascular risk factors. These findings suggested that elder patients with COVID-19 may be more likely to develop CVD, and more attention should be paid to older patients with cerebrovascular risk factors.. Importantly, 9 out of 11 patients with CVD were patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection, suggesting severe infection may be associated with CVD, especially acute ischaemic stroke. Our past work also showed that severe patients were more likely to develop neurological symptoms.4 SARS-CoV-2 has a spike protein surface unit that highly binds to human ACE2 receptor; it may cause endothelial apoptosis and neuronal damage.10 11 Studies have found that infection with COVID-19 can accelerate the progression of acute stroke.12-14 In a total of 4448 patients with COVID-19 in 16 studies, CVD was positively ...

Cerebrovascular diseases threaten public health, especially the aging population. Deep understanding of the features of cerebrovascular diseases can effectively assist in clinical practice. Recent studies showed that the genesis and development of cerebrovascular diseases involved in many mechanisms, e.g. inflammation, hemodynamics, dysplasia and so on. However, most of these factors will result in a degeneration of cerebral vessels and neurodegeneration, which plays an important role on genesis and development of cerebrovascular diseases. Therefore, how to diagnose and block the pathological change of degeneration of cerebral vessels could provide neurosurgeons and neurologists useful tools in the clinical practice, and provide patients an accurate treatment which could significantly improve the prognosis.This Research Topic will focus on the frontiers in the accurate treatment of cerebrovascular disease, including hemorrhagic and ischemic diseases.

Alzheimers disease (AD) is the leading cause of dementia. Research into environmental factors is currently focused on cerebrovascular risk factors.1 Treatment of vascular risk factors has been associated with slower cognitive decline and reduced risk of AD in older populations.2 Genetics are important in rare genetically determined autosomal dominant familial patients with AD or frontotemporal dementia (FTD).3 Apolipoprotein E (APOE) is a risk factor for familial late-onset sporadic AD, but its role as a risk factor in younger populations is unclear. The role of APOE as a risk factor for FTD is controversial.. Early-onset dementia is dementia that develops in individuals prior to the age of 65 years, and some studies suggest it is associated with a higher mortality. AD and FTD are the most common causes of dementia in this population.4 The onset of FTD may be characterised by behavioural change and speech disturbance, whereas AD is usually characterised by defective episodic memory. It is ...
Not unexpected from the variety of cerebrovascular disorders and their morphologic and clinical consequences the contributions of neuroimaging are also quite diverse and go with different approaches in different directions. By reviewing the recent advances in these various areas, we will attempt to highlight those contributions, which may be most meaningful both for the clinician and the researcher dealing with cerebrovascular disorders. After long expectations of the utility of mismatch concepts, such patient selection has proven successful in extending the benefit of recanalization of acute ischaemic stroke by mechanical thrombectomy beyond 6 h and the importance of infarct size and collaterals has been documented. Insights into the association of bleeding markers such as cerebral microbleeds and cortical superficial siderosis with spontaneous, treatment-related, first or recurrent intracerebral haemorrhage have been consolidated and explored further. New data have been added to better ...
It is an object of the invention to present an input and display apparatus for handwritten characters capable of freely editing input handwritten characters. A handwritten character entered on a touch panel by using a pen is registered as one stroke data. The registered one stroke data is divided in two stroke data by using the pen, or two stroke data are combined into one stroke data. By combination of stroke data division and combination, partial deletion in stroke data, blank insertion in stroke data, and insertion of other stroke data into stroke data are realized.
Inflammation is increasingly being understood to be a key component to the pathophysiology of cerebrovascular lesions. Ferumoxytol, an iron oxide nanoparticle coated by a carbohydrate shell, has been used in MRI studies as an inflammatory marker because it is cleared by macrophages. Ferumoxytol-enhanced MRI has emerged as an important tool for noninvasive assessment of the inflammatory status of cerebrovascular lesions, namely aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations. Moreover, preliminary evidence suggests that ferumoxytol-enhanced MRI could be applied as a non-invasive tool to differentiate
The team induced a mild stroke similar to a silent stroke in the striatum area of the brain in mice. They found there was inflammation and brain damage in the striatum following the stroke, which they had expected. What the researchers didnt expect was the impact on another area of the brain, the substantia nigra. When they analysed the substantia nigra they recorded a rapid loss of Substance P (a key chemical involved in its functions) as well as inflammation. The team then analysed changes in the brain six days after the mild stroke and found neurodegeneration in the substantia nigra. Dopaminergic neurones had been killed.. Talking about the findings Dr Pinteaux said: It is well known that inflammation following a stroke can be very damaging to the brain. But what we didnt fully appreciate was the impact on areas of the brain away from the location of the stroke. Our work identifying that a silent stroke can lead to Parkinsons disease shows it is more important than ever to ensure stroke ...
Various forms of cerebrovascular disorders may lead to cognitive impairment and dementia in the elderly [17]. While pure VaD - most frequently caused by infarctions - is rare, it is generally assumed that cerebrovascular pathology contributes to the development of cognitive impairment in other neurodegenerative diseases, in particular in mixed AD/VaD. Such mixed disorders are frequently observed in the brains of elderly individuals and their prevalence and severity increase with advancing age [37]. In aged individuals, lacunes, microbleeds, WMLs and microinfarcts have been associated with cognitive decline, including reduced mental speed and impaired executive functions [38]. Cerebral SVD may interact with pathophysiological processes in AD either independently of each other or through additive or synergistic effects on cognitive decline [39, 40]. There are several clinical classification criteria for VaD/VCI, such as the NINDS-AIREN criteria, the State of California Disease Diagnostic and ...

Dr. Rudrajit Kanjilal, Neuro-surgeon at CMRI. Moyamoya disease is a well recognized phenomenon since 1940s, though it is a relatively uncommon cerebrovascular disorder which at times occur due to familial reason or genetic mutation. Originally, it was thought that the disease was region specific, specially Japan and other Asian countries, since it was first discovered in Japan. However, now we have seen that all races are equally prone to developing this disease. Arguably, its occurance is higher in Asian countries than in Europe or North America. The name of the disorder Moyamoya has been derived from Japanese language which means puff of smoke. This exactly describes the appearance of the bunch of tangled tiny vessels formed at the base of the brain. In Japan it is a genetic, familial disease, while in India, it is sporadic, we dont see a familial trend in Indian subcontinent. It is idiopathic and mostly happen due to genetic mutation, but the incidence is not very rare. Causes and ...

Systems: Using Cox proportional hazards models, we examined the association between pipe smoking and mortality from tobacco-associated cancers and other disorders in a cohort of U. S. men registered in the Cancer Prevention Study II, an American Cancer Society prospective study. Results: Current pipe smoking, compared with never use of tobacco, was linked with a heightened risk of death from cancers of the lung (relative risk = 5. 95% confidence interval = 4. to 6.01), oropharynx (RR = 3. 95% CI = 2. to 7.08), esophagus (RR = 2. 95% CI = 1. to 3.95), colorectum (RR = 1. 95% CI = 1. to 1.73), pancreas (RR = 1. 95% CI = 1. to 2.09), and larynx (RR = 13. 95% CI = 5. to 33.1), and from coronary heart disease (RR = 1. 95% CI = 1. to 1.43), cerebrovascular disorder (RR = 1. 95% CI = 1. to 1.48), and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (RR = 2. 95% CI = 2. to 4.11).

If naiveté alone was the crucial fault of this monograph, then it could, perhaps, at least be recommended for the naïve. But the concept of chronic low perfusion (of brain) recurring through the work is so misleading that the book is not recommended.. Current neurological opinion would take issue, and strongly so, with the belief that most cases of chronic dizziness, syncope, dimness of vision, and decreased mentation or giddiness on arising (matutinal dizziness) are caused by diminished general vascular perfusion of brain. Perhaps current neurological opinion in this regard is in error. But I would need more than vague ...
Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability in the United States, but it is estimated that 80 percent of strokes are preventable. Many strokes can be prevented by medical treatment of risk factors and vascular surgery is the primary specialty that treats carotid artery plaques to prevent stroke.. Plaque build up in the carotid artery can lead to TIA (mini stroke) or stroke. For stroke prevention, we offer treatment for severe carotid narrowing in patients without clinical symptoms or for those with moderate to severe narrowing who are experiencing clinical symtpoms. Our division are known expertises on both carotid surgery and carotid stenting, as well as national and internationally recognized research on carotid disease.. Patients with vertebral arteries narrowing may notice vertigo (room spins), dizziness (there are many causes of dizziness, vertebral artery narrowing is an uncommon cause), and fainting. This constellation of symptoms is called vertebral insufficiency. Vascular surgery ...

BACKGROUND: Successful treatment options for cancer result in more young long-term survivors prone for long-term complications. Carotid artery vasculopathy is a potential long-term complication after radiotherapy of the neck, resulting in cerebrovascular events and probably deficits in cognitive and motor functioning. Better insight into the underlying pathofysiology of radiotherapy induced carotid artery vasculopathy is needed for prognostic purposes and to develop preventive strategies. METHODS/DESIGN: The current study is a prospective cohort study on the long-term cerebral and vascular complications after radiotherapy of the neck, in 103 patients treated for head and neck cancer, included in our study database between 2002 and 2008. Baseline protocol (before radiotherapy) included screening for cerebrovascular risk factors and intima media thickness measurement of carotid arteries by ultrasonography. Follow-up assessment more than 5 years after radiotherapy included screening of ...

We included and retrospectively analyzed those patients admitted to the emergency department of the University Hospital of Lausanne from June 2002 to April 2014 who had a final diagnosis of TGA and underwent CTP within 24 hours of admission. CTP was part of the standard diagnostic protocol of the hospital to detect cerebral ischemia from June 2002 until April 2006 and has been performed at the discretion of the treating physician since April 2006. All patients underwent neurologic evaluation, and the diagnosis of TGA was made if the criteria of Hodges and Warlow10 were met. Additional examinations such as electroencephalography and DWI were performed as considered necessary by the treating physician. Exclusion criteria were poor-quality CTP and a proved ischemic lesion on DWI after an initial TGA diagnosis.. We collected the following parameters: demographics (age, sex); cerebrovascular risk factors, including hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes mellitus, smoking history, atrial fibrillation, ...
The use of non-invasive brain and vascular imaging with CT and MRI scanning has continued to increase rapidly. This increase in imaging has led to the frequent detection of asymptomatic or incidental neurovascular conditions, including arteriovenous malformations, cavernous malformations, aneurysms, and carotid stenoses. There is considerable controversy in the management of these conditions which are very commonly seen in clinical practice. Faculty will review the evaluation and management of these asymptomatic neurovascular conditions ...
Cerebrovascular disease is currently the second most common cause of death after ischemic heart disease. In this article, we mainly focus on the application of permeability imaging in cases of ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke, and cerebral small vessel disease. In this review, we discuss the application of permeability imaging in ischemic stroke from two aspects: 1) for the prediction of hemorrhagic transformation after infarction, and 2) for the evaluation of newborn secondary and tertiary collateral circulations. Quantitative measurements of blood-brain barrier (BBB) disruption by the Dynamic Contrast Enhance MR (DCE-MR) can reveal the severity of intracranial hemorrhage (ICH)-induced brain damage, and that the technique has the potential to be used for testing the efficacy of interventions aimed at reducing tissue damage around the hematoma. Currently, DCE-MR is mostly applied for the assessment of tumors in patients. There is less research focused on the evaluation of mild BBB defects in normal or
