  • Stroke and splenic infarct in a 17-year-old patient with COVID-associated
           hypercoagulable state and relative ADAMTS13 deficiency

    • Authors: Maximilian Pistor, Angelika Hoffmann, Thomas Horvath, Michael Oberholzer, Marcel Arnold, Sara Magdalena Pilgram-Pastor
      Abstract: Clinical and Translational Neuroscience, Volume 5, Issue 1, January-June 2021.
      In this case report, we present the case of a 17-year-old stroke patient suffering from coronavirus disease (COVID)-19. He was successfully treated with intravenous and endovascular treatment. After extensive work-up, a hypercoagulable state due to the COVID-19 infection was assumed as probable cause of stroke.

  • Factors associated with early reperfusion improvement after intra-arterial
           fibrinolytics as rescue for mechanical thrombectomy

    • Authors: Johannes Kaesmacher, Giovanni Peschi, Nuran Abdullayev, Basel Maamari, Tomas Dobrocky, Jan Vynckier, Eike Piechowiak, Raoul Pop, Daniel Behme, Peter B Sporns, Hanna Styczen, Pekka Virtanen, Lukas Meyer, Thomas R Meinel, Daniel Cantré, Christoph Kabbasch, Volker Maus, Johanna Pekkola, Sebastian Fischer, Anca Hasiu, Alexander Schwarz, Moritz Wildgruber, David J Seiffge, Sönke Langner, Nicolas Martinez-Majander, Alexander Radbruch, Marc Schlamann, Dan Mihoc, Rémy Beaujeux, Daniel Strbian, Jens Fiehler, Pasquale Mordasini, Jan Gralla, Urs Fischer
      Abstract: Clinical and Translational Neuroscience, Volume 5, Issue 1, January-June 2021.
      Objective:To identify factors associated with early angiographic reperfusion improvement (EARI) following intra-arterial fibrinolytics (IAF) after failed or incomplete mechanical thrombectomy (MT).Methods:A subset of patients treated with MT and IAF rescue after incomplete reperfusion included in the INFINITY (INtra-arterial FIbriNolytics In ThrombectomY) multicenter observational registry was analyzed. Multivariable logistic regression was used to identify factors associated with EARI. Heterogeneity of the clinical effect of EARI on functional independence (defined as modified Rankin Score ≤2) was tested with interaction terms.Results:A total of 228 patients (median age: 72 years, 44.1% female) received IAF as rescue for failed or incomplete MT and had a post-fibrinolytic angiographic control run available (50.9% EARI). A cardioembolic stroke origin (adjusted odds ratio (aOR) 3.72, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.39–10.0) and shorter groin puncture to IAF intervals (aOR 0.82, 95% CI 0.71–0.95 per 15-min delay) were associated with EARI, while pre-interventional thrombolysis showed no association (aOR 1.15, 95% CI 0.59–2.26). The clinical benefit of EARI after IAF seemed more pronounced in patients without or only minor early ischemic changes (Alberta Stroke Program Early Computed Tomography Score (ASPECTS) ≥9, aOR 4.00, 95% CI 1.37–11.61) and was absent in patients with moderate to severe ischemic changes (ASPECTS ≤8, aOR 0.94, 95% CI 0.27–3.27, p for interaction: 0.095).Conclusion:Early rescue and a cardioembolic stroke origin were associated with more frequent EARI after IAF. The clinical effect of EARI seemed reduced in patients with already established infarcts. If confirmed, these findings can help to inform patient selection and inclusion criteria for randomized-controlled trials evaluating IAF as rescue after MT.

  • Myocardial injury in acute ischemic stroke

    • Authors: Christian H Nolte, Matthias Endres, Jan F Scheitz
      Abstract: Clinical and Translational Neuroscience, Volume 5, Issue 1, January-June 2021.
      Since antiquity, the interaction of brain and heart has inspired physicians and philosophers. Today, our knowledge has vastly improved, but the exact way of their interaction still holds many secrets to reveal. The interaction between brain and heart merits particular attention in the aftermath of a sudden injury to the brain-like acute ischemic stroke (AIS). This narrative review gives an overview of current knowledge on frequency, prognosis, and potential pathophysiological mechanisms of myocardial injury following AIS.

  • Imaging of nonatheromatous carotid artery disease

    • Authors: Daniel Montes, Javier M Romero
      Abstract: Clinical and Translational Neuroscience, Volume 5, Issue 1, January-June 2021.
      Imaging diagnosis of nonatheromatous carotid artery disease is challenging due to its low prevalence in contrast to that of atheromatous disease. Congenital anomalies are frequently discovered incidentally, as the chronicity of these conditions allows for compensatory flow development. The inflammatory conditions typically present with nonspecific courses, and a high clinical suspicion along with timely imaging evaluation can guide the diagnosis. Carotid dissection is the result of a partial disruption of the arterial wall and can be seen in previously healthy patients, in patients with underlying noninflammatory arteriopathies or trauma. Traumatic injuries to the carotid artery may occur under many different conditions and mechanisms and timely recognition of high-risk patients improves patient outcomes. Although free-floating thrombi (FFT) formation is typically seen with atherosclerotic plaque rupture, different conditions may also predispose to FFT. In this review article, we study the different imaging features of nonatheromatous carotid artery disease using ultrasonography, computed tomography angiography, magnetic resonance angiography, and digital subtraction angiogram.

  • Stroke in women: Is it different'

    • Authors: Sydney Corbière, Barbara Tettenborn
      Abstract: Clinical and Translational Neuroscience, Volume 5, Issue 1, January-June 2021.
      In the last decades, there has been great progress in the field of stroke. With the introduction of acute therapies (intravenous thrombolysis and intra-arterial treatment), the outcome after stroke has improved significantly. Better prevention, improved acute therapy, and acute rehabilitation improved the morbidity and mortality rate after stroke. Gender differences in risk factors and epidemiology have been known for a long time, but lately attention to gender differences in stroke has increased. The aim of this mini-review is to demonstrate gender disparities in stroke with a focus on epidemiology, specific risk factors (gender-specific and unspecific), and outcomes. The influence of some risk factors for stroke is stronger in women (atrial fibrillation and hypertension) and there are risk factors exclusive to women such as pregnancy, pregnancy-associated hypertensive disorders, oral contraceptives, and hormonal replacement treatment. Data on the impact of other risk factors are inconsistent. The worse outcome after a stroke is mainly caused by demographic characteristics in women. Specific gender research is needed to better understand gender disparities in stroke to improve prevention strategies and treatment for women.

      Abstract: Clinical and Translational Neuroscience, Volume 5, Issue 1, January-June 2021.
      In acute ischemic stroke, intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) and acute endovascular therapy (EVT) have been shown to reduce long-term disability in randomized trials. International guidelines are partially not up to date and may not address situations for which there is limited scientific evidence. The goals of the present guidelines are to summarize the current scientific data for acute revascularization treatments to make sure that all Swiss Centers apply a similar, evidence, or consensus-based treatment standard. A multidisciplinary working group of the Swiss Stroke Society (SSS) searched and reviewed the literature on new randomized controlled trials (RCTs), large case series, meta-analyses, and other guidelines since the previous recommendations in 2009 to elaborate the consensus guidelines. The new RCTs have confirmed the effectiveness of IVT in various populations up to 4.5 h and proven the benefit of acute EVT up to approximately 8 h. For patients with unknown onset (including wake-up stroke), IVT and EVT can be effective up to 24 h after last proof of good health if patients are selected with advanced neuroimaging. Multiple case series and meta-analyses allow narrowing down the indications and relative and absolute contraindications to optimize the benefit–risk ratio of acute revascularization.

  • Carotid artery stenosis – Current evidence and treatment

    • Authors: Mandy D Müller, Leo H Bonati
      Abstract: Clinical and Translational Neuroscience, Volume 5, Issue 1, January-June 2021.
      Background:Carotid artery stenosis is an important cause for stroke. Carotid endarterectomy (CEA) reduces the risk of stroke in patients with symptomatic carotid stenosis and to some extent in patients with asymptomatic carotid stenosis. More than 20 years ago, carotid artery stenting (CAS) emerged as an endovascular treatment alternative to CEA.Objective and Methods:This review summarises the available evidence from randomised clinical trials in patients with symptomatic as well as in patients with asymptomatic carotid stenosis.Results:CAS is associated with a higher risk of death or any stroke between randomisation and 30 days after treatment than CEA (odds ratio (OR) = 1.74, 95% CI 1.3 to 2.33, p < 0.0001). In a pre-defined subgroup analysis, the OR for stroke or death within 30 days after treatment was 1.11 (95% CI 0.74 to 1.64) in patients

  • Reperfusion failure despite recanalization in stroke: New translational

    • Authors: Mohamad El Amki, Susanne Wegener
      Abstract: Clinical and Translational Neuroscience, Volume 5, Issue 1, January-June 2021.
      Current treatment for acute ischemic stroke aims at recanalizing the occluded blood vessel to reperfuse ischemic brain tissue. Clot removal can be achieved pharmacologically with a thrombolytic drug, such as recombinant tissue plasminogen activator, or with mechanical thrombectomy. However, reopening the occluded vessel does not guarantee full tissue reperfusion, which has been referred to as reperfusion failure. When it occurs, reperfusion failure significantly attenuates the beneficial effect of recanalization therapy and severely affects functional recovery of stroke patients. The mechanisms of reperfusion failure are somewhat complex and not fully understood. Briefly, after stroke, capillaries show stalls, constriction and luminal narrowing, being crowded with neutrophils, and fibrin–platelet deposits. Furthermore, after recanalization in stroke patients, a primary clot can break, dislodge, and occlude distal arterial branches further downstream. In this review, we highlight a rodent model that allows studying the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying reperfusion failure after stroke. We also describe the vascular and intravascular changes involved in reperfusion, which may provide relevant therapeutic targets for improving treatment of stroke patients.

  • Swiss guidelines for the prehospital phase in suspected acute stroke

    • Authors: Georg Kägi, David Schurter, Julien Niederhäuser, Gian Marco De Marchis, Stefan Engelter, Patrick Arni, Olivier Nyenhuis, Paul Imboden, Christophe Bonvin, Andreas Luft, Susanne Renaud, Krassen Nedeltchev, Emmanuel Carrera, Carlo Cereda, Urs Fischer, Marcel Arnold, Patrik Michel
      Abstract: Clinical and Translational Neuroscience, Volume 5, Issue 1, January-June 2021.
      Acute stroke treatment has advanced substantially over the last years. Important milestones constitute intravenous thrombolysis, endovascular therapy (EVT), and treatment of stroke patients in dedicated units (stroke units). At present in Switzerland there are 13 certified stroke units and 10 certified EVT-capable stroke centers. Emerging challenges for the prehospital pathways are that (i) acute stroke treatment remains very time sensitive, (ii) the time window for acute stroke treatment has opened up to 24 h in selected cases, and (iii) EVT is only available in stroke centers. The goal of the current guideline is to standardize the prehospital phase of patients with acute stroke for them to receive the optimal treatment without unnecessary delays. Different prehospital models exist. For patients with large vessel occlusion (LVO), the Drip and Ship model is the most commonly used in Switzerland. This model is challenged by the Mothership model where stroke patients with suspected LVO are directly transferred to the stroke center. This latter model is only effective if there is an accurate triage by paramedics, hence the patient may benefit from the right treatment in the right place, without loss of time. Although the Cincinnati Prehospital Stroke Scale is a well-established scale to detect acute stroke in the prehospital setting, it neglects nonmotor symptoms like visual impairment or severe vertigo. Therefore we suggest “acute occurrence of a focal neurological deficit” as the trigger to enter the acute stroke pathway. For the triage whether a patient has a LVO (yes/no), there are a number of scores published. Accuracy of these scores is borderline. Nevertheless, applying the Rapid Arterial Occlusion Evaluation score or a comparable score to recognize patients with LVO may help to speed up and triage prehospital pathways. Ultimately, the decision of which model to use in which stroke network will depend on local (e.g. geographical) characteristics.

  • Joint European and World Stroke Organisation (ESO-WSO) conference

    • Authors: Diana Aguiar de Sousa, Yvonne Chun, Mira Katan
      Abstract: Clinical and Translational Neuroscience, Volume 5, Issue 1, January-June 2021.
      Despite a difficult year focusing on the COVID-19 pandemic, from 7 November to 8 November, stroke clinicians and researchers experienced a great opportunity to learn about the latest research results and developments across the entire care spectrum. This year’s European and World Stroke Organisation Conference was not only the first joint conference but also the first virtual experience of this magnitude in the field. More than 5000 participants were registered worldwide. Many interesting studies and impactful large trial results were presented giving rise to lively controversies (live sessions and chats). This article will focus on a few selected studies that were presented at the conference, ranging from insights into pre-hospital triage, acute interventions, to secondary prevention, rehabilitation and the impact of the current pandemic on stroke care.
