Risk for MCI Up With Progressive Cerebral Small Vessel Disease

Risk for MCI Up With Progressive Cerebral Small Vessel Disease

Patients with hypertension with progression of periventricular white matter hyperintensities have an increased risk for incident mild cognitive impairment.

Different Stroke Subtypes Consistently Affect Several Patient-Reported Health Domains

Different Stroke Subtypes Consistently Affect Several Patient-Reported Health Domains

By

The subtype of stroke had similar effects in multiple health domains, while patients with transient ischemic attack (TIA) had worse adjusted outcomes, suggesting that the mechanisms for outcomes after TIA may differ from those of other cerebrovascular events.

OCT Imaging Needle Can Detect Blood Vessels in Neurosurgery

A miniaturized optical coherence tomography imaging needle can detect blood vessels intraoperatively in the human brain in vivo.

MRI Markers Associated With Increased Risk for Stroke, Dementia, Death in Older Adults

MRI Markers Associated With Increased Risk for Stroke, Dementia, Death in Older Adults

By

Systematic review and meta-analysis provides evidence that white matter hyperintensities, brain infarcts, and cerebral microbleeds indicate a significant increased risk for stroke, dementia, and death in community-dwelling older adults.

Systemic Vascular Health Associated With Widespread Brain Changes

Systemic Vascular Health Associated With Widespread Brain Changes

By

Systemic vascular health measured as a composite of recent cardiovascular and metabolic chronic conditions was associated with medial temporal lobe thinning, widespread cerebral hypoperfusion, and poor microstructural integrity.

Does a Culturally Tailored Intervention Reduce Long-Term Vascular Risk in Minorities?

Does a Culturally Tailored Intervention Reduce Long-Term Vascular Risk in Minorities?

By

Culturally tailored, skills-based strategies may be an important alternative to knowledge-focused approaches in achieving sustained vascular risk reduction and addressing racial/ethnic stroke disparities.
