Use of intravenous (IV) thrombolysis and intra-arterial (IA) recanalization treatment has been rapidly increasing, However, despite of the treatment, recanalization rates are 22.6 - 70% and only 30-50% of patients show meaningful clinical improvements. Mechanisms of futile recanalization may include 1) large ischemic core, 2) poor collateral, and 3) presence of comorbidity. In this regards, developing selection criteria using acute stroke imaging and comorbidity is warranted.
Investigators will recruit the consecutive acute stroke patients who received IV thrombolysis and/or IA recanalization treatment. This study will perform with prospective design to develop CT-based clot, core and collateral scores and a comorbidity index for selecting stroke patients who are at high risks by the treatment. Investigators will firstly establish the CT-based scores and comorbidity index using a pre-existing cohort database. Using these CT-based and comorbidity index, Investigators will validate them in a multi-center prospectively cohort. In addition, Investigators will assess the cost-effectiveness of selecting patients based on the comorbidity index.

The purpose of the study is to use diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) derived axial diffusivity and susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI) to evaluate the severity of acute ischemic stroke and ...
The cerebrovascular diseases can be approximately divided as two types, namely ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. Intravenous thrombolysis within 3-4.5 hours is highly recommended for acute ...
In chronic stroke patients, brain network reorganization and recovery mechanism are investigated after stroke onset using functional MRI and diffusion tensor imaging analyses.
Predictors of recurrent ischemic stroke are less well known in patients with a recent ischemic stroke than in patients with transient ischemic attack (TIA). We identified clinical and radiological fac...
Stroke is one of the leading causes of death worldwide, and ischemic stroke accounts for about 80 percent of all cases. Ischemic stroke is usually caused by a blockage in an artery to the brain. Howev...
During acute brain ischemia, α2-antiplasmin markedly enhances brain injury, blood brain barrier breakdown and matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) expression. Although α2-antiplasmin inhibits fibrin t...

Ischemic stroke is one of the major leading causes for long-term disability and mortality. Collateral vessels provide an alternative pathway to protect the brain against ischemic injury after arterial...
The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.
Stroke caused by lacunar infarction or other small vessel diseases of the brain. It features hemiparesis (see PARESIS), hemisensory, or hemisensory motor loss.
The application of repeated, brief periods of vascular occlusion at the onset of REPERFUSION to reduce REPERFUSION INJURY that follows a prolonged ischemic event. The techniques are similar to ISCHEMIC PRECONDITIONING but the time of application is after the ischemic event instead of before.
A group of pathological conditions characterized by sudden, non-convulsive loss of neurological function due to BRAIN ISCHEMIA or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Stroke is classified by the type of tissue NECROSIS, such as the anatomic location, vasculature involved, etiology, age of the affected individual, and hemorrhagic vs. non-hemorrhagic nature. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp777-810)
A disorder characterized by a reduction of oxygen in the blood combined with reduced blood flow (ISCHEMIA) to the brain from a localized obstruction of a cerebral artery or from systemic hypoperfusion. Prolonged hypoxia-ischemia is associated with ISCHEMIC ATTACK, TRANSIENT; BRAIN INFARCTION; BRAIN EDEMA; COMA; and other conditions.
Stroke - Cerebrovascular Disease (CVA)
A stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and prompt treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is ...
