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.

What Is A Cryptogenic Stroke?
In this video, I describe what a cryptogenic stroke and its connection with atrial fibrillation is. A crypotegenic stroke is basically an explained stroke, and can be linked to undiagnosed atrial fibrillation. Visit my website at https://drafib.com Information is strictly educational in nature Thank you for visiting Dr. AFib. I'm Dr. Morales. In today's video segment we're going to be talking about cryptogenic stroke. Now, what is a cryptogenic stroke? Well, to be honest, a cryptogenic stroke is a fancy way of saying that you had a stroke and nobody knows why you had it. This is a not uncommon thing that patients describe to me, that they had a stroke in the past, and they couldn't really figure out why a patient had a stroke, meaning somebody has a stroke. They've been in the hospital. They've had MRI's done on their head. They've had testing done that looked for blockages of the arteries of their neck or their head. They've had a heart testing done, like an echocardiogram, that showed no significant valve disease or holes in your heart, and you've worn a heart monitor for several days, which didn't really show any arrhythmias. After several days, if you've gotten better, then you end up getting discharged and go home, but at the end result, the patient had a stroke but nobody really knows why it happened. In these patients, a lot of times the reason for the stroke can be undiagnosed atrial fibrillation. Now, the tricky thing about these situations that to be certain that a stroke was caused by atrial fibrillation, or to be able to better prevent another stroke by managing atrial fibrillation better, you have to catch it. And sometimes when people are in the hospital for several days, you don't have any episodes of atrial fibrillation, and you may not know that you have the condition. There have been some studies that have shown that when people have had a cryptogenic stroke that it can take over 80 days of monitoring in order to be able to actually catch atrial fibrillation and then figure out the diagnosis of atrial fibrillation. So, what I emphasize to patients is when they're in the hospital with a new stroke and we have found no clear reason why they've had a stroke, that it requires further testing, even outside of the hospital, to see if there's any undiagnosed atrial fibrillation. This additional testing is needed to make sure patients are diagnosed properly and to make sure they are placed on the right medications to prevent any future strokes. Typically, after a hospitalization, you may start off with simple heart monitors that go on top of your skin to see if there's any evidence for undiagnosed atrial fibrillation, but some of these heart monitors on your skin, they probably last about as long as a month, which may still not pick up episodes of atrial fibrillation. Once you've had a stroke, picking up the reason for having a stroke or picking up episodes of atrial fibrillation can greatly help to improve the risk of having a second stroke. Sometimes people need even longer monitoring than the monitors that can go on your skin. In those cases, there are monitors that go underneath your skin called implantable cardiac monitors or also called implantable loop recorders, which are actually good for up to three years in terms of a battery life that can help your doctor figure out if you have undiagnosed atrial fibrillation and get you on the right treatment strategy to prevent a second stroke. So, if you've had a stroke and nobody seems to be very clear about why it happened to you, you've had all your neurology testing, you've had all your cardiac testing and nobody can figure out why, please discuss with your doctor the possibility of having undiagnosed atrial fibrillation and what testing may be required in order to try to figure that out. Thank you for visiting this video segment of Dr. AFib. I'll see you next time. #atrialfibrillation #afib #AF #cryptogenicstroke #stroke

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.

7 Risk Factors for Stroke
7 Risk Factors for Stroke 1. Prior Stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack Having a stroke puts an individual at increased risk for having another, or recurrent, stroke. The National Stroke Association estimates at least 25- to 35-percent of Americans who have a stroke each year will have a recurrent stroke within their lifetime. Within 5-years of an initial stroke, the risk for recurrent stroke can increase more than 40-percent. Within 5-years of a stroke, 24-percent of women and 42-percent of men will experience a recurrent stroke. A transient ischemic attack, also referred to as a mini-stroke, may have the same symptoms as a stroke, but the symptoms resolve in minutes to hours (usually less than 24 hours). Symptoms may include weakness, trouble speaking, vision problems, headache, and dizziness. TIA is a medical emergency because it puts individuals at increased for stroke. According to the National Stroke Association 40-percent of individuals who have a TIA will have an actual stroke. Nearly 50-percent of all strokes occur within a few days after TIA. 2. Hypertension Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is a major risk factor for stroke. An article published in Hypertension reports the condition affects approximately 43-million individuals in the United States. If an individual is older than 60-years, hypertension is defined as a blood pressure greater than 150/90 mm Hg. If an individual is younger than 60-years, hypertension is defined as a blood pressure greater than 140/90-mm Hg. An article published in the Archives of Internal Medicine reports less than 30-percent of those being treated have blood pressure lower than 140/90-mm Hg. Hypertension is the most common and modifiable risk factor for stroke. The treatment of hypertension reduces the risk of stroke. An article published in Lancet reports that a decrease in diastolic blood pressure of 5- to 6-mm Hg reduces the risk for stroke by 42-percent. The Systolic Hypertension in the Elderly Program (SHEP) study shows treatment of isolated systolic hypertension in the elderly decreases the risk for stroke by 36-percent. 3. Myocardial Infarction Myocardial infarction (MI), or heart attack, is a major risk factor for stroke. It is directly related to and caused by atherosclerosis, which is the hardening of arteries with cholesterol-like plaque. An article published in Chest reports the incidence of ischemic stroke is approximately 1- to 2-percent per year after MI. An Israeli clinical trial concluded the risk for stroke is greatest in the first month after MI (31-percent). Treatment to prevent stroke after MI may include oral anticoagulants (blood thinners) and antiplatelet agents. The oral anticoagulant warfarin (Coumadin) is recommended in individuals after MI with persistent atrial fibrillation, decreased left ventricular function, or left ventricular blood clot. A study done by the American College of Physicians reported a decrease in stroke after MI of approximately 1-percent per year with warfarin. An article published in the Annals of Internal Medicine using the same guidelines suggested aspirin, an antiplatelet agent, reduces the risk for stroke after MI by approximately 30-percent. 4. Diabetes Diabetes is one of the most common diagnoses in medicine and is an established risk factor for stroke. There are two types of diabetes—type 1 and type 2. In type 1-diabetes, the pancreas does not produce any insulin. Insulin is a hormone that lowers blood glucose levels. In type 2-diabetes, the body’s tissues are resistant to the action of insulin. Both types of diabetes result in high blood glucose levels, or hyperglycemia. Diabetes is diagnosed when the fasting blood glucose level is equal to or greater than 126 mg/dl. Individuals with diabetes are at increased for ischemic stroke. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) reports individuals with diabetes are 1.5-times more likely to have a stroke than nondiabetics. Diabetics are also more likely to have hypertension and hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol), which further increases the risk for stroke. The United Kingdom Prospective Diabetes Study (UKPDS) demonstrated a 25-percent reduction in stroke with more intensive blood glucose control.

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

Young Adults Could be at Risk for Stroke | UCLA Health
Jennifer Reilly was 28 years old when she began experiencing some odd symptoms. Half of her left hand went numb. She could move her fingers, but she couldn’t feel anything on the outer part of that hand. Because she was so young, Reilly just assumed it was nothing. She was wrong. She was having a stroke. The numbness recurred off and on for several days. Then one night she had a piercing headache, an uncommon event for her. She mentioned her symptoms to a work colleague, who urged her to see a doctor. “I didn’t know I was having a stroke at the time,” said Reilly, now 35. “I just assumed I was a healthy, normal 28-year-old.” Reilly saw several doctors and finally landed at UCLA in the neurology department, where she said Dr. David Liebeskind, professor of neurology, director of Outpatient Stroke and Neurovascular Programs and director of the Neurovascular Imaging Research Core. After a battery of tests, Reilly was diagnosed with Moyamoya disease - a rare, progressive cerebrovascular disorder caused by blocked arteries at the base of the brain, cutting off blood flow. One of the first symptoms of Moyamoya is recurrent transient ischemic attacks, or TIAs, commonly referred to as “mini-strokes,” exactly what Reilly was experiencing. She had no idea the danger she was in, Liebeskind said. “The worst and a very likely possibility is that she would have had a significant stroke,” he said, one that could have been extremely debilitating or even fatal. Reilly was referred to Dr. Neil Martin, chair of neurosurgery at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and head of the neurovascular surgery section. What he told Jennifer was alarming.

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
Treatment of a patient with intractable Migraine Headache
Severe Migraine headache in some patients is due to a small hole in the heart( Patent Foramen Ovale-PFO) present since birth. Closure of this hole non-surgically by a device called PFO device cures this headache. The same phenomenon is involved in brain stoke in young patients( Ischemic stroke) below age 45 years. These patients require evaluation for PFO and device closure.
