Factoring in factor VIII with acute ischemic stroke.
This review summarized the molecular role of factor VIII in thrombogenesis and its clinical use in the diagnosis and prognosis of acute ischemic stroke. It also discussed the utility of screening for serum factor VIII levels among patients at risk for, or those who have experienced, ischemic stroke.

Letter by Radecki regarding article, "safety of thrombolysis in stroke mimics: results from a multicenter cohort study".
In this letter commenting on an article on the treatment of stroke mimics, the author asserts that the difficult question of the acceptable rate of misdiagnosis remains. He suggests that patients undergoing thrombolytic therapy for acute ischemic stroke have confirmatory testing such as an MRI with diffusion-weighted sequences and that the incidence of neuroimaging negative events be reported.
