Intracranial atherosclerotic stenosis: risk factors, diagnosis, and treatmentThe Lancet Neurology
Jose Gutierrez, et al.
Intracranial atherosclerotic stenosis (ICAS) is one of the most frequent causes of stroke worldwide and confers one of the greatest risks of recurrent stroke compared with other causes of stroke. Asymptomatic ICAS is increasingly recognised as a risk factor for silent brain infarctions and dementia, magnifying the global burden of ICAS.
Severe headache trajectory following aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage: the association with lower sodium levelsBrain Injury
Robert S. Eisinger, et al.
A clinical hallmark of aneurysmal SAH (aSAH) is headache. Little is known about post-aSAH headache factors which may point to underlying mechanisms. In this study, we aimed to characterize the severity and trajectory of headaches in relation to clinical features of patients with aSAH. This is a retrospective longitudinal study of adult patients admitted to an academic tertiary care center between 2012 and 2019 with aSAH who could verbalize pain scores.
Ticagrelor resistance: a case series and algorithm for management of non-respondersJournal of NeuroInterventional Surgery
Dimitri Laurent, et al.
The placement of cervical and intracranial stents requires the administration of antiplatelet drugs to prevent thromboembolic complications. Ticagrelor has emerged as the most widely used alternative in clopidogrel non-responders owing to its potent antiplatelet effects. Because ticagrelor does not require hepatic activation, many neurointerventionalists choose to forgo laboratory testing of platelet inhibition.
