Abstract: There is great interest on the development of novel therapies for acute ischemic stroke, because, to date, thrombolysis is the only approved treatment. Recent evidence suggests that Extremely Low Frequency Magnetic Fields
Abstract: Data derived from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke study published in 1995 indicate- that compared to placebo, intravenous IV administration of tissue plasminogen activator (IV-tPA) within 3 hours
Abstract: Background and Purpose: Intravenous thrombolysis with recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt PA) is the most effective and the only approved causal treatment in acute ischemic stroke.
Abstract: Massive intracranial calcifications are observed in several diseases, including arteriovenous malformations. The most frequent paediatric neurovascular malformations are vein of Galen arteriovenous malformations,
Abstract: Middle cerebral artery atherosclerosis often causes severe ischemic stroke. Plaque imaging techniques for extracranial carotid lesions with conventional magnetic resonance imaging are widely used to prevent subsequent stroke. However, the plaque imaging for intracranial atherosclerosis
Abstract: Mitral valve masses are an important cause of ischemic stroke in young individuals. The differential diagnosis for valvular cardiac mass includes infective endocarditis, sterile endocarditis and primary cardiac tumors.
Abstract: K+ conductance and [K+]o increase during early (<10 min) regional and global ischemia. Early ischemia depolarizes the RMP and decreases INa (that is, residual INa) causing slow conduction, and shortens APD and ERP with dispersion.
