    Objectives: We report our initial experience with thrombectomy devices in patients with acute ischemic stroke. Study design: Demographic, clinical, and angiographic findings of 19 consecutive patients (7 females and 12 males; mean age 61.4±12.5 years) with acute ischemic stroke were evaluated retrospectively. Results: The mean initial National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) score was 19.5±5.6. Middle cerebral artery was the occluded artery in all of the patients (proximal occlusion in 11, distal in 8 and tandem occlusions in 7 patients). Successful revascularization was achieved in 16 patients (84%). The mean NIHSS score was 8.4±8.2 at 24 hours after the procedure, and 60% of patients showed a modified Rankin scale score of ≤2 at 90 days. New occlusion by migrated emboli was observed in 2 (11%) cases. None of the patients had experienced post-procedural symptomatic intracerebral hemorrhage; 3 patients died during the three-month follow-up. In all patients, thrombectomy was performed with retrievable Solitaire AB stent system. Conclusion: This single-center experience with mechanical thrombectomy devices demonstrated that high success rates can be achieved by experienced interventional cardiologists in equipped cath labs throughout the country.

    The evaluation of vitamin D levels in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome
    (2016-07-01) Gursoy, AZİZE ESRA; Bilgen, HALİDE RENGİN; DURUYEN, Humeyra; ALTINTAS, Ozge; Kolukisa, MEHMET; Asil, TALİP; GÜRSOY, AZIZE ESRA; BİLGEN, HALİDE RENGİN; KOLUKISA, MEHMET; ASİL, TALIP
    The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) levels and carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). 25(OH)D levels were checked in 108 consecutive patients with CTS symptoms and 52 healthy controls. All patients underwent nerve conduction studies and completed Boston Carpal Tunnel Questionnaire (BQ) symptom severity and functional status scales to quantify symptom severity, pain status and functional status. There were 57 patients with electrophysiological confirmed CTS (EP+ group) and 51 electrophysiological negative symptomatic patients (EP- group). 25(OH) D deficiency (25(OH)D < 20 ng/ml) was found in 96.1 % of EP- group, in 94.7 % of EP+ group and in 73.8 % of control group. 25(0H) D level was found significantly lower both in EP+ and EP- groups compared to control group (p = 0.006, p < 0.001, respectively). Although mean vitamin D level in EP- group was lower than EP+ group, statistically difference was not significant between EP+ and EP- groups (p = 0.182). BQ symptom severity and functional status scores and BQ pain sum score were not significantly different between EP+ and EP- groups. We found no correlation with 25(OH) D level for BQ symptom severity, functional status and pain sum scores. 25(OH) D deficiency is a common problem in patients with CTS symptoms. As evidenced by the present study, assessment of serum 25(OH)D is recommended in CTS patients even with electrophysiological negative results.

    Craniocervical Dissections: Radiologic Findings, Pitfalls, Mimicking Diseases: A Pictorial Review

    Background: Craniocervical Dissections (CCD) are a crucial emergency state causing 20% of strokes in patients under the age of 45. Although DSA (digital substraction angiography) is regarded as the gold standard, noninvasive methods of CT, CTA and MRI, MRA are widely used for diagnosis. Aim: Our aim is to illustrate noninvasive imaging findings in CCD. Conclusion: Emphasizing on diagnostic pitfalls, limitations and mimicking diseases.

    One-year follow-up in patients with brainstem infarction due to large-artery atherothrombosis
    (2015-01-01) Kolukisa, MEHMET; GUELTEKIN, Tugce Ozdemir; BARAN, Gozde Eryigit; Aralasmak, AYŞE; KOCAMAN, Guelsen; GUERSOY, Azize Esra; Asil, TALİP; KOLUKISA, MEHMET; ARALAŞMAK, AYŞE; GÜRSOY, AZIZE ESRA; ASİL, TALIP
    Background: Posterior circulation infarction accounts for approximately 25% of the ischemic strokes. A number of different conditions may be associated with the development of brainstem infarction. Prognosis and recurrence rate of brainstem infarction due to large-artery atherothrombosis is still controversial. Methods: A total of 826 patients with ischemic stroke were admitted to our clinic during a 15-month period. Patients with clinical and radiological evidence of brainstem infarction were comprehensively assessed with appropriate vascular imaging modalities and for cardiological causes. Subjects with an established diagnosis of large-artery atherothrombosis were followed up for 1 year in terms of prognosis and recurrence rates. Results: Of the 101 patients with an established brainstem infarction, the diagnostic work-up indicated the presence of large-artery atherothrombosis as the causative factor in 53. A recurrent stroke was detected in the posterior circulation within the first 3 months in 5.8% and within 1 year in 9.8% of these individuals. The 1-year mortality rate was 11.7%. All patients with recurrent stroke had intracranial vascular narrowing at baseline. Conclusion: Our findings demonstrate a particularly high rate of recurrence and mortality at 1 year among patients who have a brainstem infarction due to intracranial arterial stenosis.

    Reversible conduction failure in overlap of Miller Fisher syndrome and pharyngeal-cervical-brachial variant of Guillain-Barre syndrome in the spectrum of nodo-paranodopathies
    (2014-07-01) Gursoy, AZİZE ESRA; Kolukisa, MEHMET; ALTINTAS, Ozge; YAMAN, Asli; Asil, TALİP; GÜRSOY, AZIZE ESRA; KOLUKISA, MEHMET; BABACAN YILDIZ, GÜLSEN; ASİL, TALIP
    Patients with an overlap of the pharyngeal-cervical-brachial variant of Guillain-Barre syndrome and Miller Fisher syndrome (PCB/MFS) have rarely been reported. The electrophysiological findings in PCB/MFS are of great interest and may provide insight into the pathophysiology of the disorder. We report the clinical features and nerve conduction study findings in a patient with PCB/MFS with high titers of antiganglioside antibodies against GQ1b, GD1a, and GD1b. In serial nerve conduction studies, compound muscle action potential amplitudes normalised without development of temporal dispersion within 3 weeks, and absent median, ulnar, and sural sensory nerve action potentials became recordable within 4 months. These findings are consistent with reversible conduction failure in both motor and sensory fibres, and PCB/MFS could be classified in the recently described nodo-paranodopathy spectrum of acute neuropathies associated with anti-ganglioside antibodies.
