The aim of the study is to evaluate the use of combined fluid attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) imaging and diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) as surrogate marker of lesion age within the first 6 hours of ischemic stroke in order to identify patients ≤ 3 or ≤ 4.5 hours of symptom onset in a large multicenter study hours of ischemic stroke. The investigators hypothesize that the pattern of a visible lesion on DWI together with a negative FLAIR ("DWI-FLAIR mismatch") will identify patients ≤ 3 hours of symptom onset with >80% specificity and positive predictive value.

Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A (Lp-PLA) is a well-known risk factor of atherosclerotic vascular diseases. Nevertheless, its role in the acute phase of ischemic stroke is still unclear. The aim...
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 drug combination of aspirin and dipyridamole that functions as a PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR, used to prevent THROMBOSIS and STROKE in TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK patients.
Ischemic injury to the OPTIC NERVE which usually affects the OPTIC DISK (optic neuropathy, anterior ischemic) and less frequently the retrobulbar portion of the nerve (optic neuropathy, posterior ischemic). The injury results from occlusion of arterial blood supply which may result from TEMPORAL ARTERITIS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; COLLAGEN DISEASES; EMBOLISM; DIABETES MELLITUS; and other conditions. The disease primarily occurs in the sixth decade or later and presents with the sudden onset of painless and usually severe monocular visual loss. Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy also features optic disk edema with microhemorrhages. The optic disk appears normal in posterior ischemic optic neuropathy.
