Abstract Background Well studied in patients with ischemic stroke after reperfusion therapies (RT), hemorrhagic transformation (HT) is also common in patients not treated with RT and can lead to disability even in initially asymptomatic cases. The best predictors of HT in patients not treated with RT are not well established. Therefore, we aimed to identify predictors of HT in patients not submitted to RT and create a user-friendly predictive score (PROpHET). Material and Methods Patients admitt...

OBJECTIVE: Unilateral spatial neglect (USN) results in a consistent and exaggerated spatial asymmetry in the processing of information about the body or space due to an acquired brain injury. There are several USN tests for clinical diagnosis, but none of them are validated in Brazil. The aim was to obtain normative values from a healthy sample in Brazil and to evaluate the effects of demographic variables on USN tests. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study performed with 150 neurologically ...

BACKGROUND: Ischemic stroke is a common cause of death. The role of statins in the secondary prevention of the chronic ischemic stroke phase has been established. However, evidence regarding their efficacy in this phase is limited and contradictory. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the association between statin use and mortality risk during the acute phase of ischemic stroke in patients admitted to an intensive care unit. METHODS: This was an observational and prospective study of ischemic stroke patient...

BACKGROUND: Stroke is associated with electrocardiogram (ECG) abnormalities. However, the role of strain pattern as predictor of poor neurologic outcome and mortality after stroke has not yet been demonstrated. HYPOTHESIS: ECG abnormalities, with a particular focus on ST-segment changes, are predictors of mortality and neurologic disability 90 days after stroke. METHODS: Patients with up to 24 hours of stroke were prospectively recruited. An ECG was taken at the time of admission. The patients' ...

INTRODUCTION: The presence of microembolic signals (MES) during the acute phase of stroke is poorly understood, and its role and clinical application in relation to risk stratification and prognosis in patients remain uncertain. We assessed the prevalence of spontaneous MES in acute stroke and their relationship with risk stratification, stroke recurrence, morbidity, and mortality. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This was a prospective cohort study conducted in the Stroke Unit. The MES presence was evalua...

Introduction. Stroke can lead to musculoskeletal and respiratory dysfunction, chronic deconditioning, and functional limitations, as well as long-term complications. Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between respiratory function and grip strength in the acute phase of stroke and stroke severity, disability, and autonomy in the long term. Methods: This was a cohort study including 46 patients in the stroke unit. The stroke patients were assessed in the stroke unit a...

Summary Background & aims Stroke is the leading cause of disability in adult life. Oropharyngeal dysphagia occurs in 65–90% of patients, and its identification in the acute phase of stroke can prevent complications. The aim of this study was to verify whether oropharyngeal dysphagia during stroke hospitalization is associated with functional capacity, as assessed by the modified Rankin Scale (mRs), and mortality 90 days after stroke. Materials and methods A prospective cohort study evaluating 20...

Abstract Hydrocephalus is the most common complication of extraparenchymal neurocysticercosis, combining obstructive and inflammatory mechanisms that impair cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) circulation. We studied the long-term progression of neurocysticercosis-induced hydrocephalus in a rat model. We generated an experimental rat model of neurocysticercosis-induced hydrocephalus by cisternal inoculation of cysts or antigens of Taenia crassiceps and compared it with the classic model of kaolin-induced ...
