Fate of Diffusion Restricted Lesions in Acute Intracerebral Hemorrhage

Background Diffusion-restricted lesions on diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) are detected in patients with intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). In this study, we aimed to determine the fate of DWI lesions in ICH patients and whether the presence of DWI lesions is associated with functional outcome in patients with ICH. Methods This prospective study enrolled 153 patients with acute ICH...

Altered Resting-State fMRI Signals in Acute Stroke Patients with Ischemic Penumbra

Background Identifying the ischemic penumbra in acute stroke subjects is important for the clinical decision making process. The aim of this study was to use resting-state functional magnetic resonance singal (fMRI) to investigate the change in the amplitude of low-frequency fluctuations (ALFF) of these subjects in three different subsections of acute stroke regions: the infarct...

Comparisons of outcomes in stroke subtypes after intravenous thrombolysis

The purpose of this study was to analyze the outcomes and complications between stroke subtypes after intravenous thrombolysis. A total of 471 patients with acute ischemic stroke after intravenous thrombolysis from January 2007 to April 2014 were enrolled and classified according to the Trial of Org 10172 in Acute Stroke Treatment. A multivariate logistic regression model was...

Comparison of Arterial Spin Labeling and Dynamic Susceptibility Contrast Perfusion MRI in Patients with Acute Stroke

Background The aim of this study was to evaluate whether arterial spin labeling (ASL) perfusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can reliably quantify perfusion deficit as compared to dynamic susceptibility contrast (DSC) perfusion MRI. Methods Thirty-nine patients with acute ischemic stroke in the anterior circulation territory were recruited. All underwent ASL and DSC MRI...

Increased Prothrombin, Apolipoprotein A-IV, and Haptoglobin in the Cerebrospinal Fluid of Patients with Huntington's Disease

Huntington's disease (HD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease caused by an unstable CAG trinucleotide repeat expansion. The need for biomarkers of onset and progression in HD is imperative, since currently reliable outcome measures are lacking. We used two-dimensional electrophoresis and mass spectrometry to analyze the proteome profiles in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of 6...

Association of Renal Biomarkers with 3-Month and 1-Year Outcomes among Critically Ill Acute Stroke Patients

Background The comparative relationships of widely recognized biomarkers of renal injury with short-term and long-term outcomes among critically ill acute stroke patients are unknown. We evaluated the impact of baseline albuminuria [urine albumin-creatinine ratio (UACR)≥30 mg/g] or low estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR<60 ml/min per 1.73 m2) on stroke patients admitted...

Validation of a Chinese version of disease specific quality of life scale (HFS-36) for hemifacial spasm in Taiwan

Background and object There was no Chinese questionnaire to evaluate the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in patients with hemifacial spasm (HFS). In this study, we aimed to validate a new disease-specific HRQoL scale for HFS (HFS-36) in Chinese version, and compared it to SF-36, a generic HRQoL scale. Patients and Methods The HFS-36 Chinese version was modified from...
