Ischemic stroke causes symptoms diagnosis treatment pathology
In an ischemic stroke, blood supply to part of the brain is decreased, leading to dysfunction of the brain tissue in that area. There are four reasons why this might happen: Thrombosis (obstruction of a blood vessel by a blood clot forming locally) Embolism (obstruction due to an embolusfrom elsewhere in the body), Systemic hypoperfusion (general decrease in blood supply, e.g., in shock) Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. A stroke without an obvious explanation is termed cryptogenic (of unknown origin); this constitutes 30-40% of all ischemic strokes. There are various classification systems for acute ischemic stroke. The Oxford Community Stroke Project classification (OCSP, also known as the Bamford or Oxford classification) relies primarily on the initial symptoms; based on the extent of the symptoms, the stroke episode is classified as total anterior circulation infarct (TACI), partial anterior circulation infarct (PACI), lacunar infarct (LACI) or posterior circulation infarct(POCI). These four entities predict the extent of the stroke, the area of the brain that is affected, the underlying cause, and the prognosis. The TOAST (Trial of Org 10172 in Acute Stroke Treatment) classification is based on clinical symptoms as well as results of further investigations; on this basis, a stroke is classified as being due to (1) thrombosis or embolism due to atherosclerosis of a large artery, (2) an embolism originating in the heart, (3) complete blockage of a small blood vessel, (4) other determined cause, (5) undetermined cause (two possible causes, no cause identified, or incomplete investigation).Users of stimulants, such as cocaine and methamphetamine are at a high risk for ischemic strokes. There are two main types of hemorrhagic stroke: Intracerebral hemorrhage, which is basically bleeding within the brain itself (when an artery in the brain bursts, flooding the surrounding tissue with blood), due to either intraparenchymal hemorrhage (bleeding within the brain tissue) or intraventricular hemorrhage (bleeding within the brain's ventricular system). Subarachnoid hemorrhage, which is basically bleeding that occurs outside of the brain tissue but still within the skull, and precisely between the arachnoid mater and pia mater (the delicate innermost layer of the three layers of the meninges that surround the brain). The above two main types of hemorrhagic stroke are also two different forms of intracranial hemorrhage, which is the accumulation of blood anywhere within the cranial vault; but the other forms of intracranial hemorrhage, such as epidural hematoma (bleeding between the skull and the dura mater, which is the thick outermostlayer of the meninges that surround the brain) and subdural hematoma (bleeding in the subdural space), are not considered "hemorrhagic strokes". Hemorrhagic strokes may occur on the background of alterations to the blood vessels in the brain, such as cerebral amyloid angiopathy, cerebral arteriovenous malformation and an intracranial aneurysm, which can cause intraparenchymal or subarachnoid hemorrhage.[citation needed] In addition to neurological impairment, hemorrhagic strokes usually cause specific symptoms (for instance, subarachnoid hemorrhage classically causes a severe headache known as a thunderclap headache) or reveal evidence of a previous head injury

Cryptogenic Stroke - Sydney's Story
Cryptogenic Stroke - This is a common diagnosis in children and young adults with stroke.  It simply means that the cause for stroke is unknown.  While in some cases, even after thorough investigation, the cause may remain unknown, stroke experts at referral centers may offer investigations that find a cause that was missed.  Sometimes this is very important for management strategies to prevent recurrent stroke.  In children, a cause of stroke can be identified in most cases.  Our Foundation wants to provide education to local hospitals to improve diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of young stroke patients.   Let's work together to create solutions for families not problems.  A ray of hope is a powerful treatment for the despair that comes with a new diagnosis of stroke.
Cryptogenic Stroke Patients
About one in four strokes in the U.S. are “cryptogenic” meaning the cause is undetermined. Statistics show cryptogenic stroke patients have reason to be concerned: A prior stroke is the number one risk factor for a second stroke. According to a new survey by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association more than 50 percent of stroke patients and family caregivers report feeling anxious and frustrated when the cause of stroke is not detected.

Ischemic Stroke and Transient Ischemic Attack for USMLE Step 1 and Step 2
Today we are looking at ischemic stroke and transient ischemic attack for USMLE Step 1 and Step 2. PATHOGENESIS Emboli is a major cause, which may be cardiogenic or Cardiogenic emboli leads to atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter. Mural thrombus occurs after an Myocardial infarction which forms an emboli in the left ventricular. Stroke may also be due to Valvular causes either prosthetic valve, rheumatic valve, vegetations. If there is a patent foramen ovale a stroke may also occur from a DVT. Artery to artery emboli can be from plaques located in Aorta and Carotid Artery and are audible on auscultation as a bruit. Thrombus may also be a cause of stroke that forms in carotid and vertebral artery. They decrease blood flow to the brain. Thrombus in the intracranial arteries, such as circle of willis, may also lead to eventual ischemic stroke. Lacunar infarcts occur in smaller vessels secondary to hypertension. With chronic hypertension develops lipohyalonis and fibrinoid deposition which eventually occludes the artery. TIA lasts less than 24 hours, but now defined more as whether or not infarction has occurred. TIA also increases the risk of future stroke and is associated with syncope, amnesia and seizures. Must differentiate multiple sclerosis, brain tumor, brain abscess and intracerebral hemorrhage. RISK FACTORS Risk factors for stroke are generally the same as MI, Hypertension, Atherosclerosis, Diabetes and obesity. Also hypercoagulable state, amyloid angiopathy. Atrial Fibrillation, MI, Previous TB. NEUROANATOMY Anterior Circulation – Begins with internal carotid artery. Then branches anteriorly to Anterior Cerebral Artery and the Middle Cerebral Artery. Posterior Circulation – Starts with the vertebral artery and gives off branches to the Posterior Inferior Cerebellar Artery (PICA). Combines to form the Basilar Artery, Superior Cerebellar Artery and the Posterior Cerebral Artery (PCA). STROKE SYNDROMES Stroke in Internal Carotid Artery is usually due to atherosclerotic plaque, but are generally asymptomatic because of compensation from circle of Willis. However, patient may still experience monocular blindness and a bruit. Strokes in the anterior cerebral artery (ACA) affect the lower extremity, abulia and urinary incontinence. Strokes in the middle cerebral artery (MCA) affect the upper limb and face as well as speech, decrease conjugate gaze, homonymous hemianopia. Lacunar strokes present with pure motor or pure sensory loss, ataxia, clumsy hand. Vertebral artery strokes are divided as extracranial which is known as the subclavian steal syndrome, and intracranial strokes affect the medullar oblongata. Anterior Spinal Artery Strokes Lateral Medullar Syndrome aka Wallenberg Syndrome, PICA syndrome have ipsilateral pain and numbness in the face, diplopia, vertigo, nausea/vomiting and Horner Syndrome. On the contralateral defect in pain and temperature in the body. Medial Medullar Syndrome is due to stroke in the anterior cerebellar artery. Ipsilateral tongue paralysis due to 12 cranial nerve. Contralateral paralsysi and decrease proprioception due to pyramidal and medial lemniscus. Basilar artery strokes leads to locked in syndrome and there is no volitional besides moving their eyes. Strokes affecting the midbrain include CN 3 and so they will have down and out. If there is contralateral hemiplegia is known as weber syndrome. Benedikt Syndrome there is additional gait abnormalities. Posterior Cerebral Artery strokes have visual problems and homonymous hemianopia with macular sparing. MANAGEMENT Start with the airway, breathing, circulation. Then check blood glucose and ABG that might mimic strokes. Non-contrast CT within 25 minutes to rule our hemorrhage, which will require surgery. Then begin thrombolysis or thrombolectomy. Contraindications for thrombolysis include, history of stroke or head trauma, atriovenous malformation, aneurysm, recent surgery, hypertension, hypoglycemia, internal bleeding, coagulopathy. Must be given less than 3 hours. Thrombolectomy only up to internal carotid artery. Then determine the cause with Doppler ultrasound of carotid or vertebral artery. CT Angiography or MRA looking for thrombus of smaller arteries and distinguish where the lesion or stroke occurred. Transcranial Doppler helps identify in MCA, ACA, PCA strokes. Cardiac evaluation to look for emboli in the heart with echo, ECG, lipid levels.

Prof M V Padma (AIIMS) - PFO Closure in ESUS ? (No)
Should closure of PFO be recommended treatment and standard care of patient with ESUS ? PFO is associated with cryptogenic stroke (stroke of unclear etiology). PFO is present in 20-25% of the adult population, but in 40% of adults with cryptogenic stroke. Despite the association between PFO and cryptogenic stroke, three early randomized clinical trials (CLOSURE I, PC trial, and RESPECT short-term) did not show a clear benefit of PFO closure for secondary stroke prevention. In March 2016, a meta-analysis of patient-level data from CLOSURE I, PC, and RESPECT was published. This meta-analysis found that PFO closure was superior to medical therapy for the prevention of recurrent ischemic stroke. When the analysis was restricted to the trials in which only the Amplatzer PFO occluder device was used (PC and RESPECT), the benefit appeared even greater. Should closure of PFO be recommended treatment and standard care of patient with ESUS ? Prof. M V Padma Srivastava(MBBS, MD, DM. FAMS, F.N.A.Sc) Dr Padma Srivastava has a primary area of interest in Stroke, Vascular Dementia and Multiple Sclerosis besides actively participating in the Epilepsy Program at AIIMS.

PFO Stroke Animation
Dr. Robert J. Cubeddu is the Medical Director of the Structural and Adult Congenital Heart Program at Aventura Hospital and Medical Center, Miami, Florida. Dr. Cubeddu trained at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Harvard Medical School where he acquired expertise training in minimally invasive catheter-based technology to treat multiple structural heart related conditions. In this interview we had the honor to meet Dr. Cubeddu and speak with him about PFO closure. Q: What is a PFO? A: A PFO is the abbreviated term for "patent foramen ovale"; a small "tunnel-like" hole or communication present along the septal wall that separates the upper two chambers of the heart. Typically this hole closes shortly after birth, however in some people the hole may never close and can remain open throughout adulthood. Q: How many people have a PFO? A: It is estimated that approximately 20% of adults have a PFO, that is 1 in 5 people. In most cases, having a PFO is medically not important. However, in a small percentage of patients with a PFO it may be associated with the development of stroke and/or migraine headaches. Q: How do you check for PFO? A: A PFO can be diagnosed with a conventional echocardiogram using the administration of "agitated saline" . This diagnostic test is simple, routine, non-invasive, and takes approximately 10-15 minutes. Q: Who should be checked for a PFO? A: Patients with unexplained strokes or history of debilitating migraine headaches should be evaluated for a PFO. Q: Can patients have their PFO closed? A: Yes, PFO closure is possible and recommended in some patients. The objective of closing the PFO is to prevent future strokes in patients who have not had success with blood thinners or simply cannot take them. Q: How can patients have their PFO closed? A: Nowadays, PFO closure may be performed by skilled operators with expertise training in structural heart interventions. The procedure takes approximately 1-2 hours and is performed through a minimally invasive 5 mm incision at the level of the groin under local anesthesia. A long catheter is carefully maneuvered up to the heart across the PFO. A special double-umbrella device is then delivered through this catheter to close the PFO successfully. The procedure is pain-free. Recovery times are short with nearly all patients discharged by the following morning. Q: Are migraine sufferers considered candidates for closure? A: Currently the evidence to support PFO closure in patients with migraines is relatively controversial. However in some patients with disabling migraines and who are unresponsive to medical therapy, PFO closure may be considered. Q: Tell us about recent cases you've conducted? A: We have had many stroke victims referred for PFO closure. I am happy to say that our experience has been 100% success. For more information about PFO closure, and other innovative catheter-based structural heart disease interventions including: • Percutaneous valve replacement. • Repair of congenital heart defects. • Alcohol septal ablation. • And other stroke prevention strategies in patients with atrial fibrillation contact Dr. Cubeddu at 786-428-1059 or visit us at http://aventura.floridaheartandvascular.com , serving Aventura and surrounding Miami-Dade and Broward county. ================================================

The options are all antibodies: IgA anti-tissue transglutaminase, IgG antibodies against Lyme disease, Heliobacter pylori stool antigen, antimitochondial antibodies, and antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies. The first three clinical papers are an example of how to squeeze three papers out of a single clinical study. Hope-3 was a 2x2 multifactorial study of placebo, blood pressure reduction, LDL cholesterol reduction, or both together. The subjects were about 13,000 persons with “intermediate risk of cardiovascular disease (no prior events, but at least one major risk factor, namely elevated waist-to-hip ratio, history of low concentration of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, current or recent tobacco use, dysglycemia, family history of premature coronary disease, and mild renal dysfunction). In the first study, we compare candesartan+hydrochlorothiazide, which lowered blood pressure about 6 mm Hg compared to placebo for 7 years. This blood pressure reduction did not decrease cardiovascular endpoint events, compared to placebo. In the next study, we compare rosuvestatin 10 mg to placebo. This strategy lowered LDL cholesterol by 25% and there were less events in the treatment group. The absolute reduction was 1.5%, at the expense of muscle symptoms. C-reactive protein made no difference. In the third study, both treatments together were compared to placebo. The first coprimary outcome was the composite of death from cardiovascular causes, nonfatal myocardial infarction, or nonfatal stroke, and the second coprimary outcome additionally included heart failure, cardiac arrest, or revascularization. The combination of rosuvastatin (10 mg per day), candesartan (16 mg per day), and hydrochlorothiazide (12.5 mg per day) was associated with a significantly lower rate of cardiovascular events than dual placebo among persons at intermediate risk who did not have cardiovascular disease. However, the number-needed-to treat is about 60. These treatments are for the “worried” well. I believe what will come eventually is a “polypill” for the worried. Hemophilia A is congenital factor VIII deficiency. It is treated with either plasma-derived or recombinant factor VIII. With both treatments receiving injections about every-other-day, antibodies can develop resulting in “resistance”. Investigators conducted a randomized trial to assess the incidence of factor VIII inhibitors among patients treated with plasma-derived factor VIII containing von Willebrand factor or recombinant factor VIII. Patients treated with plasma-derived factor VIII containing von Willebrand factor had a lower incidence of inhibitors than those treated with recombinant factor VIII. It may be that the plasma-derived factor-VIII material has its epitopes covered by von Willebrand factor, thereby minimizing inhibiting antibody formation. In patients with severe hemophilia A, standard treatment is regular prophylactic and episodic intravenous infusions of factor VIII. However, these treatments are burdensome, especially for children, and may lead to the formation of anti–factor VIII alloantibodies (factor VIII inhibitors). Emicizumab (ACE910), a humanized bispecific antibody mimicking the cofactor function of factor VIII, was developed to abate these problems. The antibody bridges factor IX and factor X, thereby bypassing factor VIII. This novel strategy was a great success. Once-weekly subcutaneous administration of emicizumab markedly decreased the bleeding rate in patients who had hemophilia A with or without factor VIII inhibitors. The N Engl J Med review is on cryptogenic stroke. Cryptogenic ischemic strokes are symptomatic cerebral infarcts for which no probable cause is identified after adequate diagnostic evaluation. This problem involves about 25% of all stroke cases. The case of the week is a 31 year-old woman pregnant with twins who develops recurrent fever and signs of bacterial infection. This patient has Listeriosis, an infection well-known in pregnant women but quite unusual today. The varicocele patient from last week indeed had a left-sided renal cell carcinoma. In the Lancet, we learn that despite successful treatment of the culprit artery lesion by primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with stent implantation, thrombotic embolisation occurs in some cases, which impairs the prognosis of patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Invesitgators aimed to assess the clinical outcomes of deferred stent implantation versus standard PCI in patients with STEMI.
Atrial fibrillation, or Afib, is an important risk factor for stroke. However, the risk can be significantly reduced with the use of medication known as blood thinners or anticoagulants. Blood thinners form the foundation for stroke prevention when a patient has Afib. In properly selected patients they are effective and easy to use. Choosing the most appropriate blood thinner requires a careful discussion with your doctor. In rare situations such as an emergency, the blood thinning effect may need to be reversed. Examples of situations include serious injury caused by a car accident or when emergency surgery is required, such as for a ruptured appendix or broken hip. There are different ways to reverse the blood thinning effect, depending on which blood thinner the patient is taking. There are many causes of stroke, but the vast majority are caused by a blood clot that interrupts blood flow to a part of the brain. This can result in a sudden loss of strength, feeling, vision or speech. These signs and symptoms can be temporary, resulting in a “mini stroke,” or transient ischemic attack (TIA), or they can result in permanent disability. Therefore, anyone experiencing the warning signs of stroke should be assessed for immediate stroke treatment at the closest emergency department.

Stroke Treatment  - Robert's Story
Bob had been everywhere and was starting to believe there might not be hope for help out there for him. Then he and his wife visited Cerebrum. "What brought us to Cerebrum is a very long and arduous search for solutions to the problems that were generated by my stroke. The pain in my arm went from a level 8 or 9 (the point of non-usability) to a level 2 or 3. It's absolutely wonderful!" -Robert [Stroke Patient] "The experience that I take away from here is the integration of medical disciplines to develop a completely wholistic approach to the resolution of these issues...treatment has been a carefully measured and planned evolution of building blocks, one upon the other. What I am hopeful for is that my life will return to some degree of normalcy, and I will be able to walk and use my left arm. I believe that the skills and treatment that have been provided to me through Cerebrum Health Centers will allow me to do that." -Robert
