Objectives: We aimed to determine predictors of mortality within 90 days and develop a simple score for patients with mechanical thrombectomy (MT).

Design: Analysis of a multicentre prospective registry.

Setting: In six participating centres, patients who had an acute ischaemic stroke (AIS) treated by MT between March 2017 and May 2018 were documented prospectively.

Participants: 224 patients with AIS were treated by MT.

Results: Of 224 patients, 49 (21.9%) patients died, and 87 (38.8%) were independent. Variables associated with 90-day mortality were age, previous stroke, admission National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS), fasting blood glucose and occlusion site. Logistic regression identified four variables independently associated with 90-day mortality: age ≥80 years (OR 3.26, 95% CI 1.45 to 7.33), previous stroke (OR 2.33, 95% CI 1.04 to 5.21), admission NIHSS ≥18 (OR 2.37, 95% CI 1.13 to 4.99) and internal carotid artery or basilar artery occlusion (OR 2.92, 95% CI 1.34 to 6.40). Using these data, we developed predicting 90-day mortality of AIS with MT (PRACTICE) score ranging from 0 to 6 points. The receiver operator curve analysis found that PRACTICE score (area under the curve (AUC)=0.744, 95% CI 0.669 to 0.820) was numerically better than iScore (AUC=0.661, 95% CI 0.577 to 0.745) and Predicting Early Mortality of Ischemic Stroke score (AUC=0.638, 95% CI 0.551 to 0.725) for predicting 90-day mortality.

Conclusions: We developed a simple score to estimate the 90-day mortality of patients who had an AIS treated with MT. But the score needs to be prospectively validated.

Trial Registration Number: Chinese Clinical Trial Registry (ChiCTR-OOC-17013052).

Toward quartz and cristobalite: spontaneous resolution, structures, and characterization of chiral silica-mimetic silver(I)-organic materials.

Inorg Chem 2007 Nov 24;46(24):10044-6. Epub 2007 Oct 24.

Institute of Chemistry, Academia Sinica, Taipei 115, Taiwan.

An alpha-quartz-mimetic chiral coordination network of [Ag(L1)(CF3SO3)]n (L1=5,5'-bipyrimidine), after treatment with PF6- anions, undergoes a solution-state structural transformation toward [Ag(L1)(PF6)]n with a cristobalite-mimetic chiral structures. This structural transformation is accompanied by substantial enhancement in the fluorescent intensity and in the second-harmonic-generation response. The results also demonstrate an effective design strategy based on the spontaneous resolution route for the preparation of chiral architectures.

Influence of water content on the self-assembly of metal-organic frameworks based on pyridine-3,5-dicarboxylate.

Inorg Chem 2006 Mar;45(6):2430-7

Institute of Chemistry, Academia Sinica, Taipei 115, Taiwan.

A 0D discrete molecule [Co(3,5-pdc)(H2O)5].2H2O (1) was obtained in quantitative yield from the reaction of CoCl2.6H2O and pyridine-3,5-dicarboxylate (3,5-pdc) in pure water solvent at ambient temperature. While a 1D zigzag chain species, [{Co(3,5-pdc)(H2O)4}.H2O]n (2), was produced in a water-rich environment, a 2D layer compound, [Co(3,5-pdc)(H2O)2]n (3), with a 6(3) topology was generated under a water-reduced condition and a 2D sheet structure, [{Cu(3,5-pdc)(py)2}.H2O.EtOH]n (4), was formed under a water-poor condition. Compounds 1, 2, and 4 were characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. The 1D zigzag chain 2 shows a recoverable collapsing property. Compound 4 adopts a 2D sheet structure with a 4.8(2) topology, observed for the first time for the 3,5-pdc-related metal-organic frameworks. Water content was found to be an important factor in determining the topologies of the products in the self-assembly of divalent metal ions (Co2+, Cu2+) and pyridine-3,5-dicarboxylate under mild conditions.

Self-assembly, reorganization, and photophysical properties of silver(I)-Schiff-base molecular rectangle and polymeric array species.

Inorg Chem 2006 Jan;45(1):295-303

Institute of Chemistry, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan.

A self-assembly of AgClO(4) with a Schiff-base ligand N,N'-bis(pyridin-2-ylmethylene)benzene-1,4-diamine (1) gave a 1D zigzag polymeric array [[Ag(2)(C(18)H(14)N(4))(2)](ClO(4))(2)(CH(3)CN)](n) (3), while the self-assembly of AgClO(4) with 3,3'-dimethyl-N,N'-bis(pyridin-2-ylmethylene)biphenyl-4,4'-diamine (2) afforded the molecular rectangle [[Ag(2)(C(26)H(22)N(4))(2)](ClO(4))(2)] (4). The structures of 3 and 4 were characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. Structural data for 3 indicate that the Ag(I) ion is coordinated by two ligands of 1 in a distorted tetrahedral fashion thereby leading to a 1D zigzag polymeric array. The zigzag chains are interdigitated with weak pi-pi stacking interactions. The structure of 4 consists of a discrete molecular rectangle where the silver atom has a distorted square-planar coordination with the pyridyl ligands and azomethine nitrogen atoms of 2. An intramolecular pi-pi interaction between the phenyl rings of adjacent Schiff-base 2 functions to stabilize the rectangular architecture. The Ag(I)-Schiff-base coordination polymer 3 is not stable in solution. The degradation and reorganization of 3 to form a [2 x 2] grid architecture [[Ag(4)(C(26)H(22)N(4))(4)](ClO(4))(4)] (3g) was supported in a FAB-MS study. The rectangular structure of 4 remains intact in solution at ambient temperature. The complexes 3g and 4 exhibit unusual luminescence behavior in solution at room temperature with significantly red-shifted emission in the visible region.
