Thyroid-stimulating hormone, white matter hyperintensities, and functional outcome in acute ischemic stroke patients.

Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) concentrations are frequently altered in acute ischemic stroke patients. It is becoming increasingly apparent that v...

Automated segmentation and quantification of white matter hyperintensities in acute ischemic stroke patients with cerebral infarction.
White matter hyperintensities (WMHs) of presumed vascular origin are common in ageing population, especially in patients with acute cerebral infarction and the volume has been reported to be associated with mental impairment and the risk of hemorrhag

Genetic architecture of white matter hyperintensities differs in hypertensive and nonhypertensive ischemic stroke.
Epidemiological studies suggest that white matter hyperintensities (WMH) are extremely heritable, but the underlying genetic variants are largely unknown. Pathophysiological heterogeneity is known to reduce the power of genome-wide association studie

Nocturnal Hypoxemia Is Associated with White Matter Hyperintensities in Patients with a Minor Stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack.
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a risk factor for stroke, which is modulated by accompanying nocturnal hypoxemia. White matter hyperintensities (WMH) share many of the same risk factors as stroke. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether

Arterial stiffness and functional outcome in acute ischemic stroke.
Arterial stiffness is a common change associated with aging and can be evaluated by measuring pulse wave velocity (PWV) between sites in the arterial tree, with the stiffer artery having the higher PWV. Arterial stiffness is associated with the risk

White matter injury in ischemic stroke.
Stroke is one of the major causes of disability and mortality worldwide. It is well known that ischemic stroke can cause gray matter injury. However, stroke also elicits profound white matter injury, a risk factor for higher stroke incidence and poor

Neglect performance in acute stroke is related to severity of white matter hyperintensities.
Leukoaraiosis and its progression have longitudinally been associated with cognitive decline and dementia. Its role in acute cognitive function and response to acute cerebral ischemia is less well understood. We evaluated whether the presence and ext

Association between Perivascular Spaces and Progression of White Matter Hyperintensities in Lacunar Stroke Patients.
Perivascular spaces are associated with MRI markers of cerebral small vessel disease, including white matter hyperintensities. Although perivascular spaces are considered to be an early MRI marker of cerebral small vessel disease, it is unknown wheth

White matter hyperintensities and cognitive dysfunction in patients with infratentorial stroke.
To determine whether cognitive function is associated with white matter hyperintensities (WMH) in patients with infratentorial stroke.

Homocysteine Level Is Associated with White Matter Hyperintensity Locations in Patients with Acute Ischemic Stroke.
The relationship between plasma level of total homocysteine (tHcy) and white matter hyperintensities (WMHs), especially in patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS), is controversial. The present study investigated the association between these two a

Menopausal hot flashes and white matter hyperintensities.
Hot flashes are classic symptoms of menopause. Emerging data link hot flashes to cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk, yet whether hot flashes are related to brain health is poorly understood. We examined the relationship between hot flashes (measured v
