  • The Impact of Atrial Fibrillation on the Outcome of Ischemic Stroke Treated With Thrombolysis or Endovascular Therapy

    The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of atrial fibrillation (AF) on stroke outcome in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) treated with thrombolysis or endovascular therapy (EVT).

  • Oral Pyruvate Effects on Dorsal Root Ganglia in Simulated Weightlessness Rats

    Long-term microgravity in spaceflight has been demonstrated with induction of multi-organ damage and dysfunction, including the dorsal root ganglia (DRG) injury. Present studies investigated protective effects of oral pyruvate in drinking water on lumbar 5 (L5) DRG tissues in rats subjected with hindlimb unweighting (HU).

  • Simultaneous Encephalitis and Neuroretinitis After COVID-19 in a Young Adult: A Case Report

    Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic greatly impacted many aspects of life in the world. Both neurological and ophthalmologic presentations after COVID-19 have been reported.

  • COVID-19 Vaccine Priority for People With Neurologic and Rare Diseases

    As vaccination programmes against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) are expanded, substantial variation in the prioritisation of different groups is apparent both between countries but also interprovincially within Canada. In this editorial, we bring attention to the need to prioritize individuals with neurologic and rare disorders for vaccination.

  • Ceramide Dynamics and Prognostic Value in Acute and Subacute Ischemic Stroke: Preliminary Findings in a Clinical Cohort

    Ceramides are implicated in sphingolipid signaling. Elevated ceramide levels have been associated with increased cardiovascular risk, but information on their role in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) is limited.







Review of Huntington’s Disease: From Basics to Advances in Diagnosis and Treatment
Huntington’s disease (HD) is a devastating neurodegenerative disease of autosomal dominant inheritance and full penetrance, caused by an expansion of the cytosine-adenine-guanine (CAG) trinucleotide in the huntingtin gene located on chromosome 4.

Reported Incidences of Postoperative Delirium in State and National Hospital Claims Databases
The aim of the study was to evaluate the incidence of postoperative delirium (POD) following a comprehensive list of surgical procedures utilizing data from state and national inpatient hospital databases. The incidence of POD occurring during surgical hospital admissions was evaluated across 15 surgical categories, and different patient demographics using California State Inpatient Database (SID) and National Inpatient Sample (NIS).

Key Clinical Image

Symptomatic Cerebral Vasospasm After Transsphenoidal Adenoma Resection of the Pituitary
Delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) or vasospasm following transsphenoidal surgery (TSS) is a life-threatening and life-altering event that could potentially cause devastating complications, neurological morbidity, and high mortality. Herein, we report the case of a 16-year-old woman without a marked medical history and unusual complications after TSS for pituitary adenoma resection who developed cerebral vasospasm and infarction after TSS. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case involving a patient under 18 years old and requiring thrombectomy after TSS. Full Text
