The objective of this SAMMPRIS-affiliated study is to understand the mechanisms the mechanisms that underlie ischemic stroke recurrence in high-grade intracranial atherosclerotic disease in order to determine predictors of recurrent stroke. MoSIS will evaluate 6 specific mechanisms of stroke in the medically-treated SAMMPRIS cohort: decreased antegrade flow, progression of stenosis, decreased proximal collateral flow, decreased distal collateral flow, impaired cerebrovascular reserve, and artery-to-artery embolism.

Despite the use of validated prehospital stroke scales, stroke mimics are frequent among patients transported by Emergency Medical Services to the Emergency Department. We aimed to describe the freque...
Several studies have shown that high level of plasma C-reactive protein (CRP) is associated with stroke outcomes and future vascular events, and a decrease in serum triiodothyronine (T3) was reported ...
Failure to recognise acute stroke may result in worse outcomes due to missed opportunity for acute stroke therapies. Our study examines factors associated with stroke misdiagnosis in patients admitted...
Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.
Stroke caused by lacunar infarction or other small vessel diseases of the brain. It features hemiparesis (see PARESIS), hemisensory, or hemisensory motor loss.
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 condition caused by the failure of body to dissipate heat in an excessively hot environment or during PHYSICAL EXERTION in a hot environment. Contrast to HEAT EXHAUSTION, the body temperature in heat stroke patient is dangerously high with red, hot skin accompanied by DELUSIONS; CONVULSIONS; or COMA. It can be a life-threatening emergency and is most common in infants and the elderly.
