Abstract Although intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) score is used to provide an estimate on the probability of mortality following spontaneous ICH of any cause, its utility has not been exclusively tested in ICH patients with history of treatment with vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) or non-vitamin K oral anticoagulants (NOACs). The aim of the present report is to investigate the utility of ICH score for mortality prognostication of VKA-ICH and NOAC-ICH patients. We used receiver operating characterist...
The hyperechogenicity of the substania nigra (SN) has been established as a valid finding in patients with Parkinson´s disease (PD), probably caused by an increased tissue iron concentration in the SN. The application of transcranial sonography (TCS) has been investigated for further echogenic basal ganglia alterations in patients with extrapyramidal movement disorders. Compared to PD, a hyperechogenic nucleus lentiformis (LN) has been reported to appear more frequently in atypical parkinsonian ...

Comprehensive administrative data on TIA and stroke cases and treatment modalities are fundamental for improving structural conditions and adjusting future strategies of stroke care. The nationwide administrative database (German federal statistical office) was used to extract all adult inpatient TIA and stroke cases and corresponding procedural codes for the period 2011–2017. Numbers were specified according to age, sex, stroke unit (SU) and critical care treatment (ICU), early transfer, and in...

PurposeGliomas constitute the most frequent primary brain tumors. Glioblastoma, the most common and malignant glioma in adults, has dismal prognosis with any current therapy. On the other hand, low-grade gliomas, the second most common type of gliomas, are potentially curative with appropriate treat

Introduction We sought to evaluate the impact of pretreatment with intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) on the rate and speed of successful reperfusion (SR) in patients with emergent large vessel occlusion (ELVO) treated with mechanical thrombectomy (MT) in a high-volume tertiary care stroke center. Methods Consecutive patients with ELVO treated with MT were evaluated. Outcomes were compared between patients who underwent combined IVT and MT (IVT+MT) and those treated with direct MT (dMT). The elapsed...
