Carotid Atherosclerosis and Cognitive Impairment in Nonstroke Patients.
As a vascular risk factor, carotid atherosclerosis is crucial to cognitive impairment. While carotid intima-media thickness, carotid artery plaque, and carotid stenosis can reflect carotid atherosclerosis in different stages, this review aimed to exp

Stroke-like Migraine Attacks after Radiation Therapy Syndrome.

Neurosurgical sequelae of domestic dog attacks in children.
OBJECTIVE The authors' goals in this study were to describe a series of dog attacks on children that required neurosurgical consultation and to better understand the pattern of injuries inflicted, the circumstances that place children at risk for att

Brain plasticity and rehabilitation in stroke patients.
In recent years, our understanding of motor learning, neuroplasticity and functional recovery after the occurrence of brain lesion has grown significantly. Novel findings in basic neuroscience have provided an impetus for research in motor rehabilita

Stroke-like migraine attacks after radiation therapy syndrome: a case report and literature review.
Stroke-like migraine attacks after radiation therapy syndrome is a late complication of cranial radiation. It typically presents as reversible, unilateral cortical signs and symptoms such as confusion, hemiparesis, seizures, and headaches. Magnetic r

Prior transient ischemic attacks may have a neuroprotective effect in patients with ischemic stroke.
Although functional recovery and survival after ischemic infarction seem to improve in patients with prior transient ischemic attack (TIA), little is known about the role of characteristics of prior TIA in subsequent cerebral infarction. Thus, the ob

Iron supplementation reduces the frequency and severity of breath-holding attacks in non-anaemic children.
Iron supplementation reduces the frequency and severity of breath-holding attacks (BHAs), particularly in children with iron deficiency. The issue of iron supplementation is less clear for Westernized children with BHAs who present to an outpatient c
