Approach to acute ischemic stroke in childhood.
Acute ischemic stroke in childhood is a medical emergency. Prompt recognition and intervention is necessary to rescue potentially viable brain tissue, prevent complications, and minimize the risk of recurrent stroke. Conditions that could result in r

Diagnosis biomarkers in acute intestinal ischemic injury: so close, yet so far.
Acute intestinal ischemic injury (i3) is a life-threatening condition with disastrous prognosis, which is currently difficult to diagnose at the early stages of the disease; a rapid diagnosis is mandatory to avoid irreversible ischemia, extensive bow

The Impact of Histological Clot Composition in Embolic Stroke.
Thrombus composition has been suggested to have a decisive impact on the outcome of patients treated by mechanical thrombectomy because of embolic stroke. The recent development of stent retrievers allows collection and, hence, histopathological anal

Treatment protocol based on assessment of clot quality during endovascular thrombectomy for acute ischemic stroke using the Trevo stent retriever.
The optional endovascular approach for acute ischemic stroke is unclear. The Trevo stent retriever can be used as first-line treatment for fast mechanical recanalization. The authors developed a treatment protocol for acute ischemic stroke based on t

Successful recanalization for acute ischemic stroke via the transbrachial approach.
The recent development of revascularization devices, including stent retrievers, has enabled increasingly higher revascularization rates for arterial occlusions in acute ischemic stroke. Patient-specific factors such as anatomy, however, may occasion

Treatment of acute ischemic stroke: from fibrinolysis to neurointervention.
Thrombolytic therapy with intravenous recombinant tissue plasminogen activator is well established as a beneficial treatment for patients presenting with acute ischemic stroke (AIS). The odds of a favorable clinical outcome (living independently) inc

Brexpiprazole: so far so good.
This article describes the role of a newly approved antipsychotic agent brexpiprazole in the treatment of schizophrenia and major depressive disorder. This drug has high affinity for 5-HT1A, 5-HT2A, D2 and α1B,2C receptors. It displays partial agonis

Cancer Metastases: So Close and So Far.
Metastases are tumors that develop at a distance from their primary origin and are responsible for the death of 90% of cancer patients. For over a century the notion of seed (migrating cells) and soil (the locus where those cells anchor) provided an

Antiplatelet Usage Impacts Clot Density in Acute Anterior Circulation Ischemic Stroke.
We explored whether clot density in middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion is related to clinical variables, stroke etiology, blood constituents, and prestroke medication. We performed a retrospective chart review of patients with acute ischemic stro
