Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are thrilled to announce the upcoming release of our second volume in this Special Issue series, titled "Recent Advances in Clinical Management of Ischemic Stroke Volume II". Stroke remains a significant public health concern, ranking among the leading causes of mortality, the primary cause of acquired disability in adults, and the second most prevalent cause of dementia after Alzheimer's disease.

Ischemic strokes resulting from large vessel occlusion (LVO) constitute a substantial proportion, accounting for 30-40% of all ischemic strokes. These cases are associated with the highest morbidity and mortality rates, underscoring the urgent need for advancements in LVO stroke management during both the acute phase and secondary prevention.

Over the past decade, significant strides have been made in improving the prognosis for LVO stroke patients. Remarkable progress in reperfusion therapies, including the use of mechanical thrombectomy in conjunction with intravenous thrombolysis, has led to improved clinical outcomes. While these advancements are undeniably groundbreaking, there remains a pressing need for further insights to enhance the management of LVO strokes. Furthermore, the precise identification of LVO stroke subtypes plays a pivotal role in determining the most effective secondary prevention strategies. Given that atrial fibrillation constitutes the primary source of LVO strokes, its detection presents a formidable challenge for stroke clinicians, particularly in cases of covert paroxysmal atrial fibrillation in patients presenting with embolic strokes of undetermined origin. Novel strategies are imperative to bolster secondary stroke prevention.

This forthcoming Special Issue in the JCM, dedicated to recent advancements in the clinical management of ischemic strokes, presents an invaluable opportunity to contribute fresh perspectives on LVO stroke management in both the acute phase and secondary prevention. We cordially invite you to be part of this exciting venture and share your expertise to further our collective understanding of this critical area.

We also invite you to visit our website to access the first volume of our Special Issue, available at the following link:

We extend our sincere gratitude for your continued support of our Special Issue and eagerly anticipate your contributions to future volumes, contributing to the ongoing progress in ischemic stroke research.
