Intracerebral Hemorrhage and Outcome After Thrombolysis in Stroke Patients Using Selective Serotonin-Reuptake Inhibitors.

Selective serotonin-reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) impair platelet function and have been linked to a higher risk of spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage-an association that may be augmented by oral anticoagulants (OAC). We aimed to assess whether preadmission treatment with SSRIs in patients with acute ischemic stroke is associated with post-thrombolysis symptomatic intracerebral hemorrhage (sICH) and functional outcome.

Cerebral white matter lesions and post-thrombolytic remote parenchymal hemorrhage.

Parenchymal hematoma (PH) following intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) in ischemic stroke can occur either within the ischemic area (iPH) or as a remote PH (rPH). The latter could be, at least partly, related to cerebral amyloid angiopathy, which belongs to the continuum of cerebral small vessel disease. We hypothesized that cerebral white matter lesions (WMLs)-an imaging surrogate of small vessel disease-are associated with a higher rate of rPH.

Intravenous Thrombolysis in Patients Dependent on the Daily Help of Others Before Stroke.

We compared outcome and complications in patients with stroke treated with intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) who could not live alone without help of another person before stroke (dependent patients) versus independent ones.

Severe cerebral white matter lesions in ischemic stroke patients are associated with less time spent at home and early institutionalization.

Cerebral white matter lesions are one imaging surrogate for cerebral small vessel disease. These white matter lesions are associated with increased morbidity and mortality in both the general population and ischemic stroke patients.

Higher neutrophil counts before thrombolysis for cerebral ischemia predict worse outcomes.

To determine whether higher neutrophil counts before IV recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA) administration in ischemic stroke (IS) patients are associated with symptomatic intracerebral hemorrhages (sICH) and worse outcomes at 3 months.

White Matter Lesions Double the Risk of Post-Thrombolytic Intracerebral Hemorrhage.

Cerebral white matter lesions (WMLs), a surrogate for small-vessel disease, are common in patients with stroke and may be related to an increased intracranial bleeding risk after intravenous thrombolysis in acute ischemic stroke. We aimed to investigate the risk of symptomatic intracerebral hemorrhage (sICH) in the presence of WMLs in a large cohort of ischemic stroke patients treated with intravenous thrombolysis.

Cerebral computed tomography-graded white matter lesions are associated with worse outcome after thrombolysis in patients with stroke.

Compared with other stroke causes, small-vessel disease is associated with better 3-month outcomes in patients with acute ischemic stroke treated with intravenous thrombolysis. Another question is the impact of coexisting cerebral white matter lesions (WMLs; a surrogate marker of small-vessel disease) on outcome, which was addressed in the current study.

White matter lesions are associated with hospital admissions because of hip-fractures and trauma after ischemic stroke.

Cerebral white matter lesions (WMLs), a surrogate for cerebral small-vessel disease, have been shown to be associated with decreasing mobility, gait instability, and falls. The aim of this study was to investigate whether WMLs of the brain are associated with increased incidence of hospital admissions because of any trauma and hip-fractures in a cohort of patients with stroke.

Post-stroke depression and depression-executive dysfunction syndrome are associated with recurrence of ischaemic stroke.

Depression and depression-executive dysfunction syndrome (DES) are common neuropsychiatric consequences of stroke. We hypothesized that if stroke as a cerebrovascular event causes depression, this so-called post-stroke depression will further increase the risk of recurrent stroke. The objective of the study was to investigate whether patients with post-stroke depression or DES have increased rates of stroke recurrence.

Poststroke dementia is associated with recurrent ischaemic stroke.

To investigate whether poststroke dementia (PSD) diagnosed after ischaemic stroke predicts recurrent ischaemic stroke in long-term follow-up.

Alertness in transient visual disturbances of one eye.

TIA is a brief and transient ictal symptom due to a local disturbance of cerebral or ocular arterial circulation. Transitory blindness or blurred vision in one eye (amaurosis fugax) is a sudden TIA symptom lasting a few minutes, usually underlied by thromboembolism originating from an atherosclerotic plaque of the internal carotid artery, less frequently an embolus from the aorta or the heart, or localized thrombosis of vessels of the optic nerve or the retina. We describe two amaurosis fugax patients.
