    OBJECTIVES: In major cerebral arterial occlusive diseases, patients with inadequate blood supply relative to metabolic demand (misery perfusion) may be at increased risk for cerebral ischaemia. This study investigated whether patients showing misery perfusion on PET have a high risk of recurrent ischaemic stroke.

    METHODS: The relation between the regional haemodynamic status of cerebral circulation and the subsequent risk of recurrent stroke was prospectively evaluated in 40 patients ...

    BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Patients with acute lacunar infarction in the lenticulostriate artery (LSA) territory often show progression of motor deficits (PMD) after admission. The purpose of our study is to identify predictors for PMD using the findings of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) on admission.

    METHODS: From January 2005 to December 2008, we studied 60 consecutive patients with acute lacunar infarction in the LSA territory within 24h after onset. To identify predictors for PMD, ...

    Importance: The Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT) demonstrated that a systolic blood pressure (BP) target less than 120 mm Hg was superior to less than 140 mm Hg for preventing vascular events. This trial excluded patients with prior stroke; therefore, the ideal BP target for secondary stroke prevention remains unknown.

    Objective: To assess whether intensive BP control would achieve fewer recurrent strokes vs standard BP control.

    Design, Setting, and Participants: ...

    BACKGROUND: Small deep brain infarcts are often caused by two different vascular pathologies: 1. atheromatous occlusion at the orifice of large caliber penetrating arteries termed branch atheromatous disease (BAD) and 2. lipohyalinotic degenerative changes termed lipohyalinotic degeneration (LD). We herein analyze and describe the characteristics of these 2 different pathologies.

    METHODS: We studied 394 patients with penetrating artery territory infarcts in the territories of the ...

    BACKGROUND: Intracranial atherosclerotic disease is one of the most common causes of ischemic stroke especially in Asians, Hispanics and blacks. Although middle cerebral artery (MCA) stenosis is increasingly being recognized with the advent of magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) or transcranial Doppler ultrasonography, few studies have focused on acute neurological worsening (NW) in patients with MCA stenosis. We investigated the relationship between NW and lesion patterns detected by ...

    BACKGROUND: Progressive motor deficits (PMD) are common in cerebral penetrating artery disease (PAD) during the acute stage and leads to severe disability. Reliable predictors and stroke mechanism for PMD in PAD have been yet to be elucidated. Moreover, difference of predictors between topographically classified PAD has not ever been systematically studied.

    METHODS: Three hundred ninety two consecutive patients with acute PAD (<20 mm) who showed lacunar motor syndrome and admitted within ...

    BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: A long-term follow-up study was conducted in patients with lacunar infarct to assess how 24-hour blood pressure monitoring values and MRI findings, in particular lacunar infarcts and diffuse white matter lesions, can predict subsequent development of dementia and vascular events, which include cerebrovascular and cardiovascular events.

    METHODS: One hundred seventy-seven patients were tracked for a mean of 8.9 years of follow-up. Documented events comprise the ...

    Although the relationships between chronic kidney disease (CKD) and cognitive impairment (CI) have been highlighted, the etiology of CI in CKD remains uncertain. Subjects comprised 224 consecutive patients with symptomatic lacunar infarction who underwent magnetic resonance imaging and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM). Diurnal blood pressure (BP) patterns were categorized into three groups: dippers, non-dippers and risers. Lacunar infarcts (LIs), including both symptomatic and ...

    BACKGROUND: Twenty-four-hour blood pressure (BP) readings have been found to correlate with hypertensive target organ damage. Lacunar infarcts (LI) and white matter lesions (WML) probably represent manifestations of cerebral hypertensive target organ damage. This study was conducted to better delineate the relationships between 24-hour BP measurements, LI/WML and small vessel disease cognitive impairment/vascular dementia (CI/VD).

    METHODS: Two hundred patients with first-time symptomatic ...

    BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Stroke patients with severe leg paralysis are often bedridden in the acute and subacute phase, which increases the risk of disuse muscle atrophy in the chronic phase. The evidence to date indicates that oxidative stress plays an important role in the mechanism of disuse muscle atrophy. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine if long-term radical scavenger treatment with edaravone following an acute stroke prevents the progression of disuse muscle ...

    BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Antihypertensive therapy has dramatically reduced the incidence of stroke recurrence; however, recent studies have suggested that the excessive lowering of blood pressure (BP) could cause ischemic cerebral lesions. We conducted a prospective study using MRI and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring to elucidate the appropriate BP control level for the prevention of silent and symptomatic cerebral infarction.

    METHODS: We studied 105 patients with symptomatic lacunar ...

    BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Many studies have suggested that diminished nocturnal blood pressure decline in hypertensive cardiovascular disease is associated with the extent of hypertensive vascular disease. In our previous observation of cerebrovascular disease, however, we found reduced nocturnal blood pressure decline to be associated not only with the extent of hypertensive vascular disease but also with the specific location of cerebrovascular lesions. The purpose of this study was to ...

    OBJECTIVE: Lacunar infarction is a unique stroke entity with characteristic symptoms. However, it is often silent clinically. The possible genetic predisposition to symptoms of lacunar infarction was investigated.

    METHODS: One-hundred and fifty-one patients with lacunar stroke were consecutively recruited. Lacunar stroke was diagnosed based on both neurological symptoms and lacunar lesion(s), demonstrated by MRI, that were responsible for the symptoms. One-hundred and fifty control ...

    BACKGROUND: We undertook a multicenter cohort observational study to investigate the frequency and type of subsequent vascular events after an ischemic stroke and to compare the rates of vascular events between patients with and without hyperlipidemia.

    METHODS: This nationwide study was conducted in 19 hospitals participating in the Japan Standard Stroke Registry Study. We enrolled ischemic stroke patients, including those with a transient ischemic attack, who had not experienced any ...

    PURPOSE: It is universally recognized that the anterior choroidal artery (AChA) supplies the posterior two-third of the posterior limb of internal capsule (PLIC). On the other hand, the blood supply to the anterior one third of the PLIC has remained undetermined. We posit the anterior one third of the PLIC is also supplied by the AChA referring the previous microsurgical descriptions.

    METHODS: Ninety consecutive patients with isolated acute infarction in the PLIC were studied. We ...
