ABSTRACT

@#Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is characterized by thunderclap headache and reversible cerebral vasoconstriction, with other neurologic signs and symptoms. To the best of our knowledge, there were only a few cases of RCVS presenting both as both convexity subarachnoid hemorrhage (cSAH) and posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES). Herein, we report a case of a 32-year-old woman with RCVS who presented with recurrent thunderclap headaches that occurred 50 days after delivery, with cSAH and PRES on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). She had significant clinical and radiological recovery on 3 months’ follow-up. The clinical coexistence of cSAH and PRES in our case with RCVS is quite rare. This case illustrates the importance of awareness of the diagnosis of RCVS among clinicians even when initial brain and vascular imaging are normal. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial for better prognosis.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the characteristics and risk factors for cognitive decline in elderly patients with cerebral infarction.Methods A cross-sectional study was performed to investigate the population of Jiang'an Town,Rugao,Jiangsu Province from November 13,2014 to December 21,2014.The samples from the Rugao longitudinal study of aging included 1 788 individuals from 31 villages aged from 70 to 84 years.They were all Han nationality,including 830 males and 958 females.History of cerebral infarction was identified according to the neurological diagnosis confirmed by the secondary hospital and above or brain CT.The modified Kyohko Hasegawa dementia scale was used to evaluate the cognitive function.Five dimensions (orientation,memory,near memory,computing power,and common sense) of this population were assessed.The total score >21.5 was non-cognitive impairment and ≤21.5 was cognitive impairment.Multivariate logistic regression was used to analyze the risk factors for cognitive decline in elderly patients with cerebral infarction.Results (1) In the 1 788 subjects,133 had cerebral infarction (7.4%),and 1 655 did not have cerebral infarction.The proportion of hypertension in patients with cerebral infarction was higher than that without cerebral infarction (63.9% [n=85] vs.41.7% [n=690]).The high-density lipoprotein cholesterol level was lower than that of the non-cerebral infarction group (1.40±0.29 mmol/L vs.1.47±0.33 mmol/L).There was statistically significant difference (all P<0.05).(2) The patients with cerebral infarction were partially impaired in orientation and computational power,and the overall cognitive function score was 20±7,which was significantly lower than patients with non-cerebral infarction (21±6).The difference between the two groups was statistically significant (P<0.05).(3) In 133 patients with cerebral infarction,76 had cognitive impairment,the incidence was 57.1%,and 59 of them were women.The average value of serum creatinine in patients with cognitive impairment was 59±15 μmol/L,which was significantly lower than those with non-cognitive impairment (66±14 μmol/L).There was significant difference (P<0.05).(4) Multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that the education level below primary school (OR,2.86,95%CI 2.19-3.72) and female (OR,1.85,95%CI 1.50-2.28) were the independent risk factors for cognitive decline in elderly patients with cerebral infarction.High serum creatinine concentration (OR,0.96,95%CI 0.95-0.97) was a protective factor for it.Conclusion The cognitive function of the elderly was decreased after cerebral infarction,especially in the aspect of orientation and calculation.The education level below primary school and women were the independent risk factors for cognitive impairment,and high serum creatinine concentration had a certain protective effect.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To observe the impacts of eye acupuncture on neurological deficit and Barthel index in the patients of infarction hemiplegia and explore its function mechanism.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Ninety-six patients of infarction hemiplegia were randomized into an observation group and a control group, 48 cases in each one. In the control group, the routine western medicines such as thrombolysis and antiplatelet aggregation were used. In the observation group, on the basis of the treatment as the control group, eye acupuncture was added atandareas bilaterally, once a day, 5 times a week. Separately, before treatment and after 2 weeks' treatment the score changes of the modified Edinburgh Scandinavia stroke scale (MESSS) and the activity of daily life scale (ADL, Barthel index, BI) were observed and the efficacy was compared between the two groups. The plasma endothelin was determined and compared before and after treatment in the two groups.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>After treatment, the effective rate was 93.8% (45/48) in the observation group and was 79.2% (38/48) in the control group. The effective rate in the observation group was higher apparently than that in the control group (<0.05). The scores of neurological deficit were (13.29±1.45) and (18.24±1.33) in the observation group and control group respectively after treatment, which all lower apparently than (28.44±1.45) and (28.14±1.89) before treatment (both<0.05). Additionally, the difference was significant between the two groups after treatment (<0.05). The scores of Barthel index were (82.33±1.56) and (63.34±2.14) in the observation group and control group respectively, which all higher apparently than (38.53±1.54) and (38.14±2.56) before treatment (both<0.05), and the difference was significant between the two groups after treatment (<0.05). The levels of plasma endothelin were (54.55±11.48)ng/L and (62.44±9.88)ng/L in the observation group and the control group after treatment respectively, which were all lower apparently than (78.24±9.25)ng/L and (78.14±10.78)ng/L before treatment (both<0.05). Additionally, the difference was significant between the two groups after treatment (<0.05).</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>Eye acupuncture effectively improves the neurological deficit and Brathel index in the patients of infarction hemiplegia and comprehensively improves the efficacy. The effect mechanism is possibly relevant with reducing plasma endothelin.</p>

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the correlation between serum 25 hydroxyvitamin D[25 (OH) D] level and post-stroke depression in elderly patients with acute stroke.Methods Depression was assessed by Beck Depression Inventory (BDI),Burns Depression Checklist (BDC),and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders Ⅳ in 231 elderly inpatients at 2-4 weeks after onset of acute cerebral infarction.According to the depression assessment,the patients were classified into four groups:normal group),depressive symptoms group,with mild depression group,and severe depression group.The cut-off point of 25 (OH) D level for post stroke depression was analyzed by receiver operating characteristic (ROC).Results The serum level of 25(OH)D was (23.0±1.6) nmol/L in all subjects,(25.0±1.7) nmol/L in normal group,(23.7± 1.6) nmol/L in depressive symptoms group,(22.4±1.5) nmol/L in mild depression group,(16.3± 1.5) nmol/L in severe depression group.Serum 25(OH) D level had significant differences between major depression groups and other three groups,while no significant differences were found between mild depression group,depressive symptoms group and normal group.Pearson correlation analysis showed that scores of BDI and BDC were inversely related to 25 (OH)D level (r=0.24 and-0.25,both P<0.01).ROC curve analysis showed that the cut off point of serum 25 (OH) D level for severe post-stroke depression was 21.6 nmol/L.Conclusions Serum 25 (OH)D level is inversely related to depression.Serum 25(OH) D level is reduced in patients with severe post stroke depression.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate serum uric acid (UA) levels and related clinical features in patients with high risk syndrome of neuromyelitis optica. Methods UA levels were measured in 51 patients with high risk syndrome of neuromyelitis optica including 34 with longitudinally extensive transverse myelitis (LETM) and 17 with optic neuritis (ON), 48 with neuromyelitis optica (NMO), 45 with other neurological diseases (OND) and 65 with healthy controls (HC). The disability severity was assessed by the expanded disability status scale (EDSS). Spinal lesions were viewed by MRI. Serum aquaporin-4(AQP4) antibody was tested in cell based immunofluorescence assay. Results Serum UA levels in LETM ( ( 189. 84 ±85. 65) μmol/L) and ON patients ( (222. 12 ±61.68) μmol/L) were significantly lower than that in OND ((315.90±71.36) μ mol/L) and HC ((291.05 ±76.64) μ mol/L) subjects (P<0.01). No difference was found between LETM, ON and NMO groups. UA levels were significantly lower in females ( ( 158.24 ±55.92), (187.00±47.52), (198.21 ±62.62), (274.51 ±70.66)and (243.26±60.65) μmol/L)than in males ( ( 262. 09 ± 101.63 ), ( 262. 45 ± 62. 13 ), ( 298.90 ± 74. 14 ), ( 355.37 ± 50. 30 ) and (340. 34 ±58. 23) μmol/L) in all groups (t=3. 183, 2.578, 4.356, 4.365 and 6.579, all P<0.05).UA levels in patients with high risk syndrome of NMO were not correlated with mono or relapse course,duration or status of serum AQP4 antibody. UA were negatively correlated with EDSS in patients with LETM (r= -0.714, P<0.01). Conclusion Lower serum UA levels were found in patients with high risk syndrome of NMO and related to more severe symptoms in LETM group.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate serum uric acid (UA) levels and related clinical characteristics of neuromyelitis optica (NMO). Methods The serum uric acid levels were measured in 65 patients with NMO, compared to control groups which were 76 cases with multiple sclerosis ( MS), 126 cases with cerebral vascular diseases (CVD) and 130 healthy controls(HC). The disability severity in NMO was assessed by the Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS). Magnetic resonance imaging ( MRI ) was performed to strengthen assessment the involved lesions. Serum AQP4 antibody was tested in a cell based immunofluorescence assay. Results In male groups, serum UA levels in NMO patients [ (298.90±74.14) μmol/L] were significantly lower than that in CVD [ (355.37 ±50. 30) μmol/L] and HC subjects [ (340.33 ± 58.23 ) μmol/L, P < 0.05 ]. No difference was found between NMO and MS [ ( 292.36 ±92.95) μmol/L] groups. In female groups, serum UA levels in NMO patients [(198.21 ± 62.62)μmol/L] were significantly lower than that in CVD [(274.51 ± 70.66) μmol/L] and HC subjects [(243.26 ±60.65) μmol/L,P <0.05]. No difference was found between NMO and MS [(232.29 ±71.95 ) μmol/L ] groups. UA levels were significantly lower in females [ ( 198.21 ± 62. 62) μ mol/L] than in males [ (298.90 ±74.14) μmol/L]. UA levels were significantly lower in patients with EDSS≥5 [ ( 195.48 ± 83.70 )μmol/L] than EDSS < 5 [ (241.00 ± 63.20)μmol/L] NMO patients. In our study UA levels were not correlated with longitude of spinal lesions, activity revealed by MRI and AQP4 antibody tires.Conclusion Lower serum UA levels were found in patients with NMO and related to more severe symptoms.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Previous studies showed that the prevalence and extent of carotid artery stenosis increased with thedevelopment of coronary artery disease. There was a higher incidence of intracranial small-vessel disease, but lower of carotid artery disease in the Chinese stroke patients as compared with the white.OBJ ECTIVE: To observe the distribution of carotid and intracranial artery stenosis in patients with 3-vessel coronary artery disease.DESIGN: An observational study.SETTING: Department of Neurology; Heart Center, Beijing Chaoyang Hospital affiliated to Capital Medical University.PARTICIPANTS: From August 2003 to August 2004, The coronary angiography was performed in the outpatients and inpatients suspected to be coronary arteriosclerotic cardiopathy in the Department of Neurology, Beijing Chaoyang Hospital affiliated to Capital Medical University, and 126 patients of them with 3-vessel diseases were examined with carotid arteriography, including 56 males and 70 females, 47-76 years of age. Informed contents were obtained from all the participants.METHODS: Digital substraction angiography (DSA) was performed immediately after coronary angiography in the 126patients. All catheterizations were performed through a transfemoral approach using the Seldinger technique, and thenan appropriate amount of nonionic Ominipaque was injected. The angiography of bilateral carotid arteries, subclavian artery, or vertebral artery was taken from different angles. The percentage of stenosis was calculated directly from DSAmachine. Evaluative standards: Based on the stenosis degree from carotid angiography results, the patients were divided into 5 categories as normal, mild stenosis, moderate stenosis, severe stenosis and complete occlusion.MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Severity of carotid stenosis.RESULTS: All the 126 patients were involved in the final analysis of results. There were 13 (10.32%), 18 (14.29%), 12(9.5%), or 10 (7.9%) patients found to have mild, moderate, severe carotid stenosis, or complete occlusion, and the incidences of these changes were fairly similar. However, the incidence of angiographic carotid stenosis coupled with 3-vessel carotid artery disease was 42.06%.CONCLUSION: The prevalence of carotid stenosis in patients with 3-vessel carotid artery disease was as high in the Chinese population as that in Westem countries. In patients with 3-vessel disease, the prevalence of carotid stenosis was higher than that of intracranial artery stenosis, thus they may require both coronary and carotid interventions.
