    Lacunar syndrome not due to lacunar infarct is poorly characterised. This single centre, retrospective study was conducted to describe the clinical characteristics of patients with lacunar syndrome not due to lacunar infarct and to identify clinical predictors of this variant of lacunar stroke....

    Small subcortical infarctions resulting from large-vessel disease are often observed. It is important to distinguish these from pure lacunar infarction resulting from small-vessel disease because the investigations and examinations differ. We investigated the differences on brain magnetic...

    The classical "lacunar hypothesis" based on pathological and CT studies states that particular clinical syndromes - "lacunar syndromes" - are caused by small (<15 mm) subcortical infarcts due to the occlusion of a small perforating artery. In many cases however the clinical syndromes are not...

    Aim: Lacunar syndromes consist of a group of characteristic clinical presentations that are usually compatible with a small deep infarct. Validation of these syndromes could help neurologists predict the prognosis and type of cerebrovascular disease. Materials and Methods: Consecutive stroke...

    A quarter of all ischaemic strokes are lacunar type. Lacunar infarcts are small infarcts in the deep cerebral white matter, basal ganglia, or pons, presumed to result from the occlusion of a single small perforating artery supplying the subcortical areas of the brain. Hypertension and diabetes...

    Central nervous system (CNS) complications of hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS) commonly consist of alterations in mental status, seizures, and rarely hemiparesis.' The authors report the clinical evolution of left hemiparesis and later choreo-athetoid movements in a patient who sustained a right...

    Microvascular ischaemic disease increases the risk of clinical stroke and results in subclinical damage to white matter. Using post-mortem tissue, Hinman et al. reveal increased nodal and paranodal length in axons adjacent to lacunar infarcts and microinfarcts, indicating altered distribution of...
