1. ABCD2 risk score does not predict the presence of cerebral microemboli in patients with hyper-acute symptomatic critical carotid artery stenosis Full Text available with Trip Pro

ABCD2 risk score does not predict the presence of cerebral microemboli in patients with hyper-acute symptomatic critical carotid artery stenosis ABCD2 risk score and cerebral microemboli detected by transcranial Doppler (TCD) have been separately shown to the predict risk of recurrent acute stroke. We studied whether ABCD2 risk score predicts cerebral microemboli in patients with hyper-acute symptomatic carotid artery stenosis.We studied 206 patients presenting within 2 weeks of transient (...) with hyper-acute symptomatic critical carotid stenosis had an ABCD2 risk score ≥4. There was no significant difference in the NICE red flag criterion for early assessment (ABCD2 risk score ≥4) for patients with cerebral microemboli versus those without microemboli (59/86 vs 81/120 patients: OR 1.05 ABCD2 risk score ≥4 (95% CI 0.58 to 1.90, p=0.867)). The ABCD2 risk score was <4 in 27 of 86 (31%: 95% CI 21 to 41) embolising patients and in 39 of 120 (31%: 95% CI 23 to 39) without cerebral microemboli

2. Assessment of cerebral infarction after transient cerebral ischemic attack by ABCD2 score combined with the position of intracranial vascular stenosis. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Assessment of cerebral infarction after transient cerebral ischemic attack by ABCD2 score combined with the position of intracranial vascular stenosis. This study aims to investigate the value of the ABCD score combined with the position of the offending vessel stenosis in predicting the risk of transient ischemic attack (TIA) to develop into cerebral infarction.The ABCD score and head magnetic resonance imaging + magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) results of 192 patients with TIA were (...) retrospectively analyzed. With the 7th day as the endpoint time, these patients were divided into 3 groups, according to ABCD scores: low-risk group (n = 105), moderate-risk group (n = 60), and high-risk group (n = 27). Blood vessels were screened using head MRA results, and patients were accordingly divided into 2 groups: proximal vascular stenosis group (n = 71) and nonproximal vascular stenosis group (n = 171). Then, the association of the position of the intracranial vascular stenosis and ABCD score

5. ABCD3 and ABCD3-I scores are superior to ABCD2 score in the prediction of short- and long-term risks of stroke after transient ischemic attack Full Text available with Trip Pro

ABCD3 and ABCD3-I scores are superior to ABCD2 score in the prediction of short- and long-term risks of stroke after transient ischemic attack Several risk scores have been developed to predict the stroke risk after transient ischemic attack (TIA). However, the validation of these scores in different cohorts is still limited. The objective of this study was to elucidate whether these scores were able to predict short-term and long-term risks of stroke in patients with TIA.From the Fukuoka (...) abnormal diffusion-weighted image was not. ABCD3 (C-statistics 0.61) and ABCD3-I (C-statistics 0.66) scores improved the short-term predictive ability for stroke (at 7 days) compared with the ABCD2 score (C-statistics 0.54). Addition of intracranial arterial stenosis (at 3 years, continuous net reclassification improvement 30.5%; P<0.01) and exclusion of abnormal diffusion-weighted imaging (at 3 years, continuous net reclassification improvement 24.0%; P<0.05) further improved the predictive ability

6. Validation of ABCD2 scores ascertained by referring clinicians: a retrospective transient ischaemic attack clinic cohort study. (Abstract)

Validation of ABCD2 scores ascertained by referring clinicians: a retrospective transient ischaemic attack clinic cohort study. Transient ischaemic attack (TIA) services routinely use ABCD2 scores ascertained by referring clinicians to triage patients. Most ABCD2 validation studies have used ABCD2 scores calculated by stroke-specialist investigators and not referring clinicians. This study aimed to assess the usefulness of referring clinicians' ABCD2 scores in predicting strokes.A retrospective (...) study of a TIA clinic cohort from Gloucester, UK, followed up for 4 years from 2010 to 2012. ABCD2 scores were dichotomised to high risk-ABCD2≥4 and low risk-ABCD2<4. Outcomes of interest were subsequent stroke and stroke or TIA. Survival analysis was used determine the cumulative probability of these outcomes and to identify if ABCD2 risk category was associated with stroke.Of 1067 (284 high risk, 783 low risk) patients, 49.6% were classified by the clinic stroke physicians as TIA/minor stroke

The Value of ABCD2F Scoring System (ABCD2 Combined with Atrial Fibrillation) to Predict 90-Day Recurrent Brain Stroke Background. The ABCD2 score is now identified as a useful clinical prediction rule to determine the risk for stroke in the days following brain ischemic attacks. Aim. The present study aimed to introduce a new scoring system named "ABCD2F" and compare its value with the previous ABCD2 system to predict recurrent ischemic stroke within 90 days of the initial cerebrovascular (...) accident (CVA). Methods. 138 consecutive patients with the final diagnosis of ischemic CVA or TIAs who referred to emergency ward of Rasoul-e-Akram general hospital in Tehran from September 2012 to December 2013 were eligible. By adding a new score in the presence of atrial fibrillation to ABCD2 system, the new scoring system as ABCD2F was introduced and the risk stratification was done again on this new system. Results. The area under the curve for ABCD2 was 0.434 and for ABCD2F it was 0.452

8. A pilot study evaluating the use of ABCD2 score in pre-hospital assessment of patients with suspected transient ischaemic attack: experience and lessons learned Full Text available with Trip Pro

A pilot study evaluating the use of ABCD2 score in pre-hospital assessment of patients with suspected transient ischaemic attack: experience and lessons learned Suspected transient ischaemic attack (TIA) is a common presentation to emergency medical services (EMS) in the United Kingdom (UK). Several EMS systems have adopted the ABCD2 score to aid pre-hospital risk stratification and decision-making on patient disposition, such as direct referral to an Emergency Department or specialist TIA (...) clinic. However, the ABCD2 score, developed for hospital use, has not been validated for use in the pre-hospital context of EMS care.We conducted a pilot study to assess eligibility criteria, recruitment rates, protocol compliance, consent and follow-up procedures to inform the development of a definitive study to validate the ABCD2 tool in pre-hospital evaluation of patients with suspected TIA.From 1st May-1st September 2013, nine patients with an EMS suspected diagnosis of TIA had the TIA diagnosis

10. Predictive value of ABCD2 and ABCD3-I scores in TIA and minor stroke in the stroke unit setting. (Abstract)

Predictive value of ABCD2 and ABCD3-I scores in TIA and minor stroke in the stroke unit setting. It is not clear whether risk scores for early stroke recurrence after TIA that have been mainly established in outpatient and emergency department settings are valid on the background of highly specialized stroke unit care.ABCD2 and ABCD3-I scores have been prospectively documented in a cohort of patients admitted to Austrian stroke units within 24 hours of symptom onset with TIA or minor stroke (...) (NIH Stroke Scale score <4).A total of 5,237 TIA and minor stroke patients met inclusion criteria, with 3-month follow-up data available on 2,457. Early and 3-month stroke were observed in 2.4% and 4.2% of the study population. The probability of early stroke during the stroke unit stay (median 2 [interquartile range 1-3] days) steadily increased from 0% to 4.8% and 0% to 16.7% with increasing ABCD2 and ABCD3-I score points, respectively. On 3-month follow-up, stroke risk increased from 0% to 8.0

Short-Term Prognosis of Transient Ischemic Attack and Predictive Value of the ABCD2 Score in Hong Kong Chinese Literature on prognosis of transient ischemic attack (TIA) in Chinese is scarce. The short-term prognosis of TIA and the predictive value of the ABCD(2) score in Hong Kong Chinese patients attending the emergency department (ED) were studied to provide reference for TIA patient management in our ED.A cohort of TIA patients admitted through the ED to 13 acute public hospitals in 2006 (...) agents were prescribed in 89%, warfarin in 6.9%, statin in 28.6%, antihypertensives in 39.3%, and antidiabetics in 11.9% of patients after hospitalization. Before the index TIA, the prescribed medications were 27.6, 3.7, 11.3, 27.1, and 9.7%, respectively. The accuracy of the ABCD(2) score in predicting stroke risk was 0.607 at 7 days, 0.607 at 30 days, and 0.574 at 90 days. At 30 days, the p for trend across ABCD(2) score levels was 0.038 (OR for every score point = 1.36, p = 0.040). Diabetes

12. Prediction of recurrent stroke with ABCD2 and ABCD3 scores in patients with symptomatic 50-99% carotid stenosis. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Prediction of recurrent stroke with ABCD2 and ABCD3 scores in patients with symptomatic 50-99% carotid stenosis. Although it is preferable that all patients with a recent Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) undergo acute carotid imaging, there are centers with limited access to such acute examinations. It is controversial whether ABCD2 or ABCD3 scores can be used to triage patients to acute or delayed carotid imaging. It would be acceptable that some patients with a symptomatic carotid stenosis (...) are detected with a slight delay as long as those who will suffer an early recurrent stroke are detected within 24 hours. The aim of this study is to analyze the ability of ABCD2 and ABCD3 scores to predict ipsilateral ischemic stroke among patients with symptomatic 50-99% carotid stenosis.In this secondary analysis of the ANSYSCAP-study, we included 230 consecutive patients with symptomatic 50-99% carotid stenosis. We analyzed the risk of recurrent ipsilateral ischemic stroke before carotid endarterectomy

Urgent carotid duplex and head computed tomography versus ABCD2 score for risk stratification of patients with transient ischemic attack. The aim of the study was to prospectively compare the prognostic value of ABCD score, urgent carotid ultrasound (CUS), and unenhanced head computed tomography (UHCT) in patients presenting to the emergency department with transient ischemic attack (TIA).We carried out a prospective observational study including consecutive adult patients with TIA. Each (...) patient underwent ABCD score assessment, urgent CUS, and UHCT within 24 h from presentation. The primary outcome was the occurrence of ischemic stroke within 30 days.We included 186 patients with a median age of 75 years and a prevalent male sex (57.5%). During follow-up, 12 ischemic strokes (6.5%) occurred, four (7.1%) in patients with ABCD score less than 4 and 8 (6.2%) in those with a score of at least 4. An internal carotid stenosis of at least 50% consistent with the neurological deficit

14. Convergent Validity and Interrater Reliability of Estimating the ABCD2 Score From Medical Records. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Convergent Validity and Interrater Reliability of Estimating the ABCD2 Score From Medical Records. The ABCD(2) score is increasingly used for risk stratification of transient ischemic attack patients. We sought to determine the reliability and convergent validity of retrospective ABCD(2) score estimation from medical records.We compared ABCD(2) scores that were prospectively determined by a vascular neurology attending to scores determined retrospectively from medical record review. Emergency (...) department records and neurology consult notes for patients with acute transient ischemic attack were abstracted with explicit ABCD(2) scoring redacted. Scores were estimated by 2 independent raters using these records. Estimated ABCD(2) component scores, total scores, and risk category were compared both between retrospective raters and with prospectively obtained scores. Reliability was assessed using unweighted κ statistics.Interrater reliability was substantial with 72% exact agreement in total score

16. Application of the ABCD2 Score to Identify Cerebrovascular Causes of Dizziness in the Emergency Department. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Application of the ABCD2 Score to Identify Cerebrovascular Causes of Dizziness in the Emergency Department. Dizziness can herald a cerebrovascular event. The ABCD(2) score predicts the risk of stroke after transient ischemic attack partly by distinguishing transient ischemic attack from mimics. We evaluated whether this score would also identify cerebrovascular events among emergency department patients with dizziness.We retrospectively identified consecutive adults presenting to a university (...) emergency department with a primary symptom of dizziness, vertigo, or imbalance. Two neurologists independently reviewed medical records to determine whether the presenting symptom was caused by a cerebrovascular event (ischemic stroke, transient ischemic attack, or intracranial hemorrhage). ABCD(2) scores were then assigned using clinical information from the medical record. The ability of the score to discriminate between patients with cerebrovascular events and those with other diagnoses

An assessment of the incremental value of the ABCD2 score in the emergency department evaluation of transient ischemic attack We study the incremental value of the ABCD2 score in predicting short-term risk of ischemic stroke after thorough emergency department (ED) evaluation of transient ischemic attack.This was a prospective observational study of consecutive patients presenting to the ED with a transient ischemic attack. Patients underwent a full ED evaluation, including central nervous (...) system and carotid artery imaging, after which ABCD2 scores and risk category were assigned. We evaluated correlations between risk categories and occurrence of subsequent ischemic stroke at 7 and 90 days.The cohort consisted of 637 patients (47% women; mean age 73 years; SD 13 years). There were 15 strokes within 90 days after the index transient ischemic attack. At 7 days, the rate of stroke according to ABCD2 category in our cohort was 1.1% in the low-risk group, 0.3% in the intermediate-risk

Incidence of transient ischemic attack and early stroke risk: validation of the ABCD2 score in an Italian population-based study The importance of transient ischemic attack (TIA) lies on the short-term risk of stroke, and the ABCD2 score may improve early stroke risk prediction. However, population-based studies are still needed. We aimed to provide data on TIA incidence and to evaluate the ABCD2 predictive ability for early recurrent stroke in a population-based study.This study is part of a 2 (...) % CI, 0.31-0.65) when standardized to the 2007 Italian population and 0.25 (95% CI, 0.16-0.39) when standardized to the European standard population. Estimates of stroke risk after the index TIA within 2, 7, 30, and 90 days were, respectively, 2.5% (95% CI, 0.7-6.2), 5.6% (95% CI, 2.6-10.3), 6.2% (95% CI, 3.0-11.1), and 11.2% (95% CI, 6.8-17.1).

Early stroke risk and ABCD2 score performance in tissue- vs time-defined TIA: a multicenter study Stroke risk immediately after TIA defined by time-based criteria is high, and prognostic scores (ABCD2 and ABCD3-I) have been developed to assist management. The American Stroke Association has proposed changing the criteria for the distinction between TIA and stroke from time-based to tissue-based. Research using these definitions is lacking. In a multicenter observational cohort study, we have (...) investigated prognosis and performance of the ABCD2 score in TIA, subcategorized as tissue-positive or tissue-negative on diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) or CT imaging according to the newly proposed criteria.Twelve centers provided data on ABCD2 scores, DWI or CT brain imaging, and follow-up in cohorts of patients with TIA diagnosed by time-based criteria. Stroke rates at 7 and 90 days were studied in relation to tissue-positive or tissue-negative subcategorization, according to the presence or absence

20. Prospective validation of the ABCD2 score for patients in the emergency department with transient ischemic attack Full Text available with Trip Pro

Prospective validation of the ABCD2 score for patients in the emergency department with transient ischemic attack The ABCD2 score (Age, Blood pressure, Clinical features, Duration of symptoms and Diabetes) is used to identify patients having a transient ischemic attack who are at high risk for imminent stroke. However, despite its widespread implementation, the ABCD2 score has not yet been prospectively validated. We assessed the accuracy of the ABCD2 score for predicting stroke at 7 (primary (...) outcome) and 90 days.This prospective cohort study enrolled adults from eight Canadian emergency departments who had received a diagnosis of transient ischemic attack. Physicians completed data forms with the ABCD2 score before disposition. The outcome criterion, stroke, was established by a treating neurologist or by an Adjudication Committee. We calculated the sensitivity and specificity for predicting stroke 7 and 90 days after visiting the emergency department using the original "high-risk
