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.

Investigating Cryptogenic Stroke
In many ways, cryptogenic strokes are a mystery; one that strikes a younger than normal patient population with very little warning. “Typically we see the cryptogenic stoke, which means stroke from unknown cause, in the young age group. This is the 40-60 year old population. Sometimes it’s as low as 30’s,” says Dr. Robert Cross, who is an interventional cardiologist with Lee Memorial Health System. Mostly seen in people under 45 without common risk factors, cryptogenic strokes leave little doubt, but many questions. “A patient may come in with full blown stroke symptoms - numbness, slurred speech, drooling. They’re treated aggressively then you’re looking for the reason they had the stroke,” says Dr. Cross. Cardiologists often get involved because of a potential link between cryptogenic strokes and the heart condition Afib. An irregular heartbeat heightens stroke risk and with a third of stroke survivors vulnerable to a second stroke, it is important to get answers. An implantable loop recorder is frequently used to track heart activity. “It’s a wireless system that monitors the patients to see if they have any of these arrhythmias which sometimes could take months to manifest themselves,” says Dr. Cross. Studies find monitoring long term, greatly increases the chance of identifying elusive Afib and treating it appropriately. “Is this just a benign rhythm that just needs lifestyle changes, treatment with medicines, or is this a more malignant rhythm that can predetermine stroke?” says Dr. Cross. Employing super-sleuth tactics are worth the effort to solve a life-threatening mystery.

There are two main types of stroke: ischemic, due to lack of blood flow, and hemorrhagic, due to bleeding. They result in part of the brain not functioning properly. Signs and symptoms of a stroke may include an inability to move or feel on one side of the body, problems understanding or speaking, dizziness, or loss of vision to one side. Signs and symptoms often appear soon after the stroke has occurred. If symptoms last less than one or two hours it is known as a transient ischemic attack (TIA) or mini-stroke. A hemorrhagic stroke may also be associated with a severe headache. The symptoms of a stroke can be permanent. Long-term complications may include pneumonia or loss of bladder control.The main risk factor for stroke is high blood pressure. Other risk factors include tobacco smoking, obesity, high blood cholesterol, diabetes mellitus, a previous TIA, and atrial fibrillation. An ischemic stroke is typically caused by blockage of a blood vessel, though there are also less common causes. A hemorrhagic stroke is caused by either bleeding directly into the brain or into the space between the brain's membranes. Bleeding may occur due to a ruptured brain aneurysm. Diagnosis is typically based on a physical exam and supported by medical imaging such as a CT scan or MRI scan. A CT scan can rule out bleeding, but may not necessarily rule out ischemia, which early on typically does not show up on a CT scan. Other tests such as an electrocardiogram (ECG) and blood tests are done to determine risk factors and rule out other possible causes. Low blood sugar may cause similar symptoms.Prevention includes decreasing risk factors, as well as possibly aspirin, statins, surgery to open up the arteries to the brain in those with problematic narrowing, and warfarin in those with atrial fibrillation. A stroke or TIA often requires emergency care. An ischemic stroke, if detected within three to four and half hours, may be treatable with a medication that can break down the clot. Aspirin should be used. Some hemorrhagic strokes benefit from surgery. Treatment to try to recover lost function is called stroke rehabilitation and ideally takes place in a stroke unit; however, these are not available in much of the world.In 2013 approximately 6.9 million people had an ischemic stroke and 3.4 million people had a hemorrhagic stroke. In 2015 th ...

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.
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.

Dr Subhash Kaul - PFO Closure in ESUS Stroke? (Yes)
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.

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. ================================================

Young Stroke
Stroke is often considered as an older person's disease, and only 10% of stroke patients are younger than 50 years. But Recent reports show an apparent increasing trend in ischemic stroke among young adults, a figure that is particularly concerning, when compared to the overall decrease in stroke incidence and mortality. Although certain rare risk factors have been suggested as possible causes, reports show that traditional risk factors for stroke also high in this population. The lifetime impact of stroke on young adults carries substantial costs to the individual's family and to society.

Stroke gene discovered
Ischemic stroke is the second leading cause of death worldwide. Only one moderately effective therapy exists, albeit with contraindications that exclude 90% of the patients. This medical need contrasts with a high failure rate of more than 1,000 pre-clinical drug candidates for stroke therapies. Thus, there is a need for translatable mechanisms of neuroprotection and more rigid thresholds of relevance in pre-clinical stroke models. One such candidate mechanism is oxidative stress. However, antioxidant approaches have failed in clinical trials, and the significant sources of oxidative stress in stroke are unknown. We here identify NADPH oxidase type 4 (NOX4) as a major source of oxidative stress and an effective therapeutic target in acute stroke. Upon ischemia, NOX4 was induced in human and mouse brain. Mice deficient in NOX4 (Nox42/2) of either sex, but not those deficient for NOX1 or NOX2, were largely protected from oxidative stress, blood-brain-barrier leakage, and neuronal apoptosis, after both transient and permanent cerebral ischemia. This effect was independent of age, as elderly mice were equally protected. Restoration of oxidative stress reversed the stroke-protective phenotype in Nox42/2 mice. Application of the only validated low-molecular-weight pharmacological NADPH oxidase inhibitor, VAS2870, several hours after ischemia was as protective as deleting NOX4. The extent of neuroprotection was exceptional, resulting in significantly improved long-term neurological functions and reduced mortality. NOX4 therefore represents a major source of oxidative stress and novel class of drug target for stroke therapy. Citation: Kleinschnitz C, Grund H, Wingler K, Armitage ME, Jones E, et al.

Carotid Dissection Stroke - Laressa's Story
Our mission is to educate doctors throughout the United States but at Children's Stroke Foundation if we can teach anyone who listens, we will. We will post a series of videos every other month about the different causes we know cause Stroke in children, teens and young adults. Each one will be short but informative. This first video is "Stroke by Accident" - an awful experience for this little girl whose strokes could have been avoided. But through this accident Children's Stroke Foundation was founded! Children's Stroke Foundation exists now to help families and promote stroke education among the U.S. medical network. "The world is a university and everyone in it is a teacher. Make sure when you wake up in the morning you go to school" -Bishop T.D. Jakes.
Charité Clinical Journal Club by Fred Luft - 1.6.2016
The N Engl J Med image of the week shows CT scan coronal view of the abdomen with contrast material. We observe a hugely dilated bowel that I would interpret as bowel ischemia and mesenteric edema. We are given the clue of renal failure. 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.
