The General Office of Stroke Prevention Project Committee, National Health Commission of the People's Republic of China, Beijing, China. Electronic address:

Background: There is currently a lack of data on stroke hospitalizations and long-term outcomes in China. Therefore, we investigated 12-month stroke fatality, disability, and recurrence rates after the first-ever stroke.

Methods: This was a prospective nationwide hospital-based cohort study. From August to September 2019, all patients with first-ever stroke (ischemic stroke [IS], intracerebral hemorrhage [ICH], and subarachnoid hemorrhage [SAH]) and with symptom onset within 14 days from 232 hospitals were included. Case fatality, disability, and recurrence rates for one year were estimated.

Results: In total, 36250 first-ever stroke patients from 194 hospitals were recruited (median age was 65(IQR, 56-73) years and 61.4 % were male). The rate of intravenous thrombolysis and endovascular treatment for IS were 9.5 % and 4.4 %, respectively. In-hospital death rate was 1.9 % (95 %CI: 1.7 %-2.0 %) for stroke inpatients, ranging from 0.9 % (0.8 %-1.1 %) for IS to 5.1 % (4.6 %-5.6 %) for ICH. The 12-month fatality rate was 8.6 % (95 %CI: 8.3 %-8.9 %) for discharged stroke patients, ranging from 6.0 % (5.7 %-6.3 %) for IS to 17.7 % (16.7 %-18.7 %) for ICH. The 12-month disability rate was 16.6 % (95 %CI: 16.2 %-17.0 %) for stroke survivors, ranging from 11.1 % (9.3 %-12.8 %) for SAH to 29.2 % (27.9 %-30.4 %) for ICH. The stroke recurrence rate was 5.7 % (5.5 %-6.0 %) for stroke survivors, ranging from 2.5 % (1.7 %-3.3 %) for SAH to 6.4 % (6.0 %-6.7 %) for IS.

Conclusion: Our results support the hypothesis that the prognosis of Chinese stroke patients appears to have improved and is not very bad.

Chinese Cerebrovascular Neurosurgery Society and Chinese Interventional & Hybrid Operation Society, of Chinese Stroke Association Clinical Practice Guidelines for Management of Brain Arteriovenous Malformations in Eloquent Areas.

Front Neurol 2021 9;12:651663. Epub 2021 Jun 9.

Department of Neurosurgery, Beijing Tiantan Hospital, Capital Medical University, Beijing, China.

The aim of this guideline is to present current and comprehensive recommendations for the management of brain arteriovenous malformations (bAVMs) located in eloquent areas. An extended literature search on MEDLINE was performed between Jan 1970 and May 2020. Eloquence-related literature was further screened and interpreted in different subcategories of this guideline. The writing group discussed narrative text and recommendations through group meetings and online video conferences. Recommendations followed the Applying Classification of Recommendations and Level of Evidence proposed by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. Prerelease review of the draft guideline was performed by four expert peer reviewers and by the members of Chinese Stroke Association. In total, 809 out of 2,493 publications were identified to be related to eloquent structure or neurological functions of bAVMs. Three-hundred and forty-one publications were comprehensively interpreted and cited by this guideline. Evidence-based guidelines were presented for the clinical evaluation and treatment of bAVMs with eloquence involved. Topics focused on neuroanatomy of activated eloquent structure, functional neuroimaging, neurological assessment, indication, and recommendations of different therapeutic managements. Fifty-nine recommendations were summarized, including 20 in Class I, 30 in Class IIa, 9 in Class IIb, and 2 in Class III. The management of eloquent bAVMs remains challenging. With the evolutionary understanding of eloquent areas, the guideline highlights the assessment of eloquent bAVMs, and a strategy for decision-making in the management of eloquent bAVMs.

Practical value of three-dimensional high resolution magnetic resonance Vessel Wall imaging in identifying suspicious intracranial vertebrobasilar dissecting aneurysms.

BMC Neurol 2020 May 20;20(1):199. Epub 2020 May 20.

New Era Stroke Care and Research Institute, The PLA Rocket Force Characteristic Medical Center, No. 16 Xinjiekouwai Street, Xicheng District, Beijing, 100088, China.

Background: Direct evidence of intimal flaps, double lumen and intramural haematomas (IMH) is difficult to detect on conventional angiography in most intracranial vertebrobasilar dissecting aneurysms (VBDAs). Our purpose was to assess the value of three-dimensional high-resolution magnetic resonance vessel wall imaging (3D HRMR VWI) for identifying VBDAs.

Methods: Between August 2013 and January 2016, consecutive patients with suspicious VBDAs were prospectively enrolled to undergo catheter angiography and VWI (pre- and post-contrast). The lesion was diagnosed as definite VBDA when presenting direct signs of dissection; as possible when only presenting indirect signs; and as segmental ectasia when there was local dilation and wall thickness similar to adjacent normal artery's without mural thrombosis.

Results: Twenty-one patients with 27 lesions suspicious for VBDAs were finally included. Based on findings of VWI and catheter angiography, definite VBDA was diagnosed in 25 and 7 lesions (92.6%, vs 25.9%, p <  0.001), respectively; possible VBDA in 0 and 20 (0 vs 74.1%), respectively; and segmental ectasia in 2 and 0 (7.4% vs 0%), respectively. On VWI and catheter angiography, intimal flap was detected in 21 and 7 lesions (77.8% vs 25.9%, p = 0.001), respectively; double lumen sign in 18 and 7 (66.7% vs 25.9%, p = 0.003), respectively; and IMH sign in 14 and 0 (51.9% vs 0), respectively.

Conclusions: 3D HRMR VWI could detect direct dissection signs more frequently than catheter angiography. This may help obtain definite diagnosis of intracranial VBDAs, and allow accurate differentiation between dissecting aneurysm and segmental ectasia as well. Further prospective study with larger sample was required to investigate the superiority of HRMR VWI for definite diagnosis of intracranial VBDAs than catheter angiography.

One-staged in situ embolization combined with surgical resection for eloquence protection of AVM: technical note.

Neurosurg Rev 2019 Sep 30;42(3):783-790. Epub 2019 Jul 30.

Department of Neurosurgery, Beijing Tiantan Hospital, Capital Medical University, No. 119 Southern 4th Ring Road West, Fengtai District, Beijing, 100070, China.

Brain arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) near/within eloquent areas are challenging to treat surgically. The insufficient lesion-to-eloquence distance (LED) is related to poor neurological outcomes. This paper reports the use of in situ embolization combined with surgical resection in a one-staged hybrid operation for eloquent area protection. Nine patients who underwent one-staged in situ embolization combined with surgical resection were selected from the database of a prospective clinical trial (NCT03774017). Nidus got partial in situ embolization in the parts located near/within the eloquence. The rest of nidus was removed via a microsurgical procedure in the same operation. The in situ embolization ensured a sufficient LED to prevent eloquent areas and tracts from being damaged in the subsequent resection. All of the patients achieved complete obliteration with no neurological deficits or complications. One-staged hybrid operation initiates closer cooperation between surgical and endovascular treatments and proposes an integrative therapeutic mode for AVMs. The in situ embolization combined with surgical resection is safe and effective for improving the functional outcome of AVMs with eloquence and tracts involved. The clinical trial is registered at (NCT03774017, ).

The safety of triple antiplatelet therapy under thromboelastography guidance in patients undergoing stenting for ischemic cerebrovascular disease.

J Neurointerv Surg 2019 Apr 12;11(4):352-356. Epub 2018 Aug 12.

General Hospital of the PLA Rocket Force, The Teaching Hospital of Soochow University, Suzhou, China.

Objective: To investigate the safety of triple antiplatelet therapy (TAT) with cilostazol in patients undergoing stenting for extracranial and/or intracranial artery stenosis.

Methods: A prospectively collected database was reviewed to identify patients who underwent stenting for extracranial and/or intracranial artery stenosis and showed resistance to aspirin and/or clopidogrel as assessed by pre-stenting thromboelastography (TEG) testing. Patients were assigned to a TAT group and a dual antiplatelet therapy (DAT) group. Major complications were defined as thromboembolic events (transient ischemic attack (TIA), ischemic stroke, and stent thrombosis) or major bleeding events within 30 days, and minor complications were defined as extracranial bleeding that did not require vascular surgery or transfusion within 30 days.

Results: A total of 183 patients were identified. The incidence of major complications was significantly lower in the TAT group than in the DAT group (TAT group vs. DAT group, 1/110 vs. 6/73; P=0.017). TIAs occurred in four patients, with one in the TAT group and three in the DAT group (1/110 vs. 3/73; P=0.303). Ischemic strokes occurred in three patients in the DAT group (TAT group vs. DAT group, P=0.062). No major bleeding events or stent thrombosis was recorded in either group. Two patients (one in each group) experienced minor complications that resolved without additional treatment (1/110 vs. 1/73; P>0.999).

Conclusions: TAT under TEG guidance appears to be a safe antiplatelet strategy in patients undergoing stenting for extracranial and/or intracranial artery stenosis. By employing TAT under TEG guidance, favorable outcomes can be achieved in these patients.

The working road map in a neurosurgical Hybrid Angio-Surgical suite------ development and practice of a neurosurgical Hybrid Angio-Surgical suite.

Chin Neurosurg J 2018 22;4. Epub 2018 Mar 22.

Department of Neurosurgery, Beijing Tiantan Hospital, Beijing, 100050 China.

Background: The concept of a Hybrid Angio-Surgical Suite (HASS) has emerged as a solution to the complexity of cerebrovascular surgery and the need for immediate intraoperative feedback. When to use it, what cases are suitable for its use, who can use it and how to use it remain debatable.

Objective: Provide the information regarding the application of the HASS for hospital, neurosurgeon and interventionalist.

Methods: We review the literatures of case reports and studies on the use of the hybrid angio-sugical suite along with application of HASS in our own practice.

Results: Indications for using HASS on different types of cerebral vascular disease, including cerebral aneurysm, AVM, DAVF, carotid and vertebral stenosis/occlusion, are addressed. The application of HASS for other non-cerebral vascular diseases, such as trauma, spine and skullbase cases, is reviewed and discussed.

Conclusion: HASS has made many surgical procedures safer and many difficult or previously untreatable conditions much more tractable and cost-effective. Other than used in cerebral vascular disease, HASS has much more applications, such as trauma, spine and other neurosurgical diseases.
