Background Cervical neural foraminal stenosis is a common and debilitating condition affecting people 40-60 years old. Although it is established that MRI is the best method of scanning the neural foramen, the question remains whether there is a role for three-dimensional MRIs and subsequently if it is possible to develop a computer aided automated grading system to establish the degree of clinically relevant cervical foraminal stenosis. Objective The aim of the study is to review the literature for current or emerging automated grading systems of the cervical neural foramen, also including volumetric assessments of the neural foramen using MRI.

Limited data were available about the combined impact of systolic blood pressure (SBP) and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels on intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) prognosis. The objective of this study is to explore whether the relationship between LDL-C and ICH outcomes was modified by SBP levels in a Chinese population. From August 1, 2015, to July 31, 2019, 75,443 ICH patients enrolled from the Chinese Stroke Center Alliance program were included in our study. Read More

Objective: Contribution of individual and combined inflammatory markers in prognosis after stroke was still undefined. We aimed to investigate the association of systemic and local vascular inflammatory markers and recurrent stroke as well as impact on poor functional outcome.Methods: In this pre-specified substudy of the Third China National Stroke Registry (CNSR-III), 10,472 consecutive acute ischemic stroke or TIA patients with available centralized-measured levels of Interleukin-6 (IL-6), high sensitive C-reactive protein (hsCRP), IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1Ra), lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A mass (Lp-PLA) and activity (Lp-PLA-A), and YKL-40 from 171 sites were enrolled.
