% in the control group. The platelet aggregation before and after treatments between the two groups had not significant difference (P>0.05). The incidence of cerebrovascular events within 90 days (11.7% in the treatment group, 9.6% in the control group) between the two groups had not significant difference (P>0.05). Multivariate analysis showed that the incidence of cerebrovascular events within 90 day was associated with hypertension (P=0.008), diabetes (P=0.000), hyperlipidemia (P=0.002) and ABCD2 score >3

Acute Brain injury, Transient Ischemic Attack is a special category of a neurological condition wherein there is an impending devastating outcome if workup is not completed in a timely fashion. There is an urgent need to do investigations with high-risk patients to prevent stroke and further mortality and morbidity.

Coated-platelets predict stroke at 30 days following TIA. To examine the potential for coated-platelets, a subset of highly procoagulant platelets observed on dual agonist stimulation with collagen and thrombin, for predicting stroke at 30 days in patients with TIA.Consecutive patients with TIA were enrolled and followed up prospectively. ABCD2 scores were obtained for each patient. Coated-platelet levels, reported as percent of cells converted to coated-platelets, were determined at baseline (...) value of 0.16 (95% CI 0.06-0.26), and negative predictive value of 0.98 (95% CI 0.96-1.0). The adjusted hazard ratio of incident stroke in patients with coated-platelet levels ≥51.1% was 10.72 compared to those with levels <51.1%. ROC analysis showed significant improvement in the predictive ability of the coated-platelet model compared to ABCD2 score (AUC 0.78 ± 0.07 vs 0.54 ± 0.07, p = 0.01).These findings suggest a role for coated-platelets in risk stratification for stroke at 30 days after TIA.©

Moderately severe bleeding was more frequent in Asians (0.8% versus 0.3%; P=0.02). In multivariable analysis, multiple acute infarcts (P=0.005) and alcohol consumption (P=0.02) were independent predictors of stroke recurrence in Asians, whereas intracranial stenosis (P<0.001), ABCD2 score (P<0.001), atrial fibrillation (P=0.008), extracranial stenosis

71. Comparison of prognostic performance of scores to predict risk of stroke in ED patients with transient ischaemic attack. (Abstract)

Comparison of prognostic performance of scores to predict risk of stroke in ED patients with transient ischaemic attack. To compare the performance of three risk scores (ABCD, ABCD2 and California) in identification of short-term stroke risk in patients with emergency department (ED) diagnosis of transient ischaemic attack. In the retrospective cohort study, information collected included features of clinical risk scores, demographic, clinical and outcome data. The outcome of interest was new (...) stroke occurrence at 2, 7 and 30 days. Data underwent receiver operating curve analyses. Of 326 patients, 17 patients experienced a new stroke within 30 days (4.9%, 95% confidence interval: 2.9-8.0%). C-statistic for high-stroke risk was not significantly different between scores at 2, 7 or 30 days. Using cutoffs of defined risk score cutoffs, the negative predictive values for stroke within 30 days were 97.4% (California), 99.1% (ABCD) and 98.9% (ABCD2), respectively.

The first medical contact and pathway of referral were also assessed. When possible, the ABCD2 score (age, blood pressure, clinical features, duration of symptoms, and diabetes) was calculated to calculate further risk of stroke. The nonparametric Wilcoxon test was used to assess differences in time intervals (...) , there was no correlation between ABCD2 risk score and waiting time for surgery.The majority of our cohort falls short of the recommended 2-week interval to perform CEA.

Microalbuminuria could improve risk stratification in patients with TIA and minor stroke Transient ischemic attacks (TIA) and minor strokes are important risk factors for recurrent strokes. Current stroke risk prediction scores such as ABCD2, although widely used, lack optimal sensitivity and specificity. Elevated urinary albumin excretion predicts cardiovascular disease, stroke, and mortality. We explored the role of microalbuminuria (using albumin creatinine ratio (ACR)) in predicting

Cerebral Microbleeds and Early Recurrent Stroke After Transient Ischemic Attack: Results from the Korean Transient Ischemic Attack Expression Registry. The risk of early recurrent stroke after transient ischemic attack (TIA) may be modifiable by optimal treatment. Although ABCD2 scores, diffusion-weighted imaging lesions, and large artery stenosis are well known to predict early stroke recurrence, other neuroimaging parameters, such as cerebral microbleeds (CMBs), have not been well explored (...) manifestations, neuroimaging findings, and use of antithrombotics or statins also were analyzed.A total of 500 patients (mean age, 64 years; male, 291 [58.2%]; median ABCD2 score, 4) completed 90-day follow-up with guideline-based management: antiplatelets (457 [91.4%]), anticoagulants (74 [14.8%]), and statins (345 [69.0%]).

, and death. Isolated dysarthria was defined as slurring with imprecise articulation but without evidence of language dysfunction. The overall rate of stroke in this cohort was compared with that predicted by the median ABCD2 score for this group.Between 2006 and 2009, 1,528 patients were enrolled and had a 90-day follow-up. Of these, 43 patients presented with isolated acute-onset dysarthria (2.8%). Recurrent stroke occurred in 6/43 (14.0%) within 90 days of enrollment. The predicted maximal 90-day (...) stroke rate was 9.8% (based on a median ABCD2 score of 5 for the isolated dysarthria cohort). After adjusting for covariates, isolated dysarthria independently predicted stroke within 90 days (aOR: 3.96; 95% CI: 1.3-11.9; p = 0.014).The isolated dysarthria cohort carried a recurrent stroke risk comparable to that predicted by the median ABCD2 scores. Although isolated dysarthria is a nonspecific and uncommon clinical presentation of TIA, these findings support the need to view it first and foremost
