Cardiovascular risk is associated with brain hypometabolism in asymptomatic middle-aged individuals with evidence of subclinical atherosclerosis.
A team of researchers investigated histopathology of patients with COVID-19 to provide insight into the disease’s impact on cognition and other neurologic symptoms.
Evidence suggests a causal link between smoking and the risk for subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH).
Greater levels of moderate- to vigorous-intensity physical activity in midlife may protect against cerebrovascular sequelae in later life.
Higher degrees of diabetic retinopathy also carry risk for cardiovascular events, the study shows.
Among pediatric patients with cerebral venous thrombosis, treatment with rivaroxaban or standard anticoagulants resulted in a similarly reduced risk for recurrent VTE or bleeding.
Neurodevelopmental scores and gray matter volumes at age 2 years do not differ between asymptomatic neonates with SDH and control neonates.
In a study of patients with intracerebral hemorrhage, those with baseline creatinine levels of 110 µmol/L or higher and who received higher doses of nicardipine, a hypertensive drug, had an increased risk for acute kidney injury.
Smoking seems to have a causal role in subarachnoid hemorrhage death compared with nonsmoking.
Systolic orthostatic hypotension and variability in systolic blood pressure postural changes may be associated with increased dementia risk.
