1.  2.  3.  4.  5.  Cerebral Cortex Corona Radiata Internal Capsule Brain Stem Spinal Cord

Wallenberg Syndrome: features
1. Ipsilateral 9th, 10th, 11th 2. Ipsilateral Horner s 3. Ipsilateral Cerebellar signs 4. Ipsilateral Facial Pain & Temp loss 5. Contralateral Spinothalamic Sensory Loss 6. Options 1,2,5 7. All of the above

TIA : Recovery of Neuological Recovery occurs within
1.  2.  3.  4.  5.  12 hours 24 hours 36 hours 48 hours 72 hours

Lacunar Strokes constitutes __ % of Ischemic strokes
1.  2.  3.  4.  5.  10 20 40 50 60

Common sites for Intracerebral Haemorrhage : All, except
1.  2.  3.  4.  5.  Pons Cerebellum Thalamus Putamen Spinal Cord

TIA : Risk of Stroke in subsequent Year increased by__ fold
1.  2.  3.  4.  5.  3 13 20 30 50

Millard-Gubler Syndrome =

Anterior Circulation Stroke: Typically causes
1.  Bilateral symptoms & signs 2.  Unilateral symptoms & signs

“Time lost is brain lost”
Is the slogan for initiating which modality of Stroke therapy? 1.  Anti-Platelets 2.  Anti-Coagulants 3.  Thrombolysis 4.  Statins 5.  Physiotherapy

Embolic Strokes in India : commonest underlying Etiologic factor
1.  Rheumatic Valvular Disease 2.  Connective tissue disorder with marantic endocarditis 3.  Infective endocarditis 4.  Ischemic Heart Disease

Ischemic Stroke: Decisive investigation before Thrombolysis
1.  2.  3.  4.  5.  Coagulation Studies Neuroimaging Electrocardiogram Echocardiogram Carotid angiography

Dense Hemiplegia is more likely with
1.  2.  3.  4.  5.  6.  Internal capsular lesion Middle cerebral artery occlusion Internal carotid stem occlusion Anterior cerebral artery occlusion Options 1 & 3 Options 2 & 3

Aphasia is statistically more common with
1.  Left sided Cortical lesion 2.  Right sided Cortical lesion 3.  Left Internal Capsular lesion 4.  Pontine Stem lesion 5.  Medullary lesion

In Haemorrhagic Stroke
Elevated Blood Pressure 1.  Should be normalised as soon as possible to prevent progression of bleeding. 2.  Should be reduced slowly in the initial few days to prevent drop in cerebral perfusion pressure.
