Prenatal diagnosis of torcular herophili thrombosis with unfavored outcome and review of the literature
Publication date: Available online 23 October 2015 Source:The Egyptian Journal of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine Author(s): Mehmet Burak Özkan, Meltem Ceyhan Bilgici, Handan Çelik, Canan Aygun Prenatally diagnosed thrombosis of the torcular herophili is a rare described entity. There are about 50 cases described in the literature till now. We here discuss the radiological findings of dural sinus thrombosis at the torcular herophili with extension into the superior sagittal sinus demonstrated on fetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at the second trimester. After birth, the infancy was followed up to sixth months with serial MRI. During this period there was moderate reduction in the size of the thrombus. There was not any underlying cause for the thrombus both in the mother and the infancy. Unexpectedly, the cranial MRI revealed the signs of cerebral atrophy at the age of sixth month. Regarding the cerebral atrophy in a prenatally diagnosed torcular herophili thrombus, there was not a sample of this combination in the literature before. In this presentation we discuss the radiologic and clinical findings of prenatally diagnosed torcular herophili within the review of the literature.
The Joint Outcome Study demonstrated that prophylactic therapy reduced joint bleeding and improved joint status. However, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed that the joints of patients who had no clinically evident joint bleeding (CEJB) displayed some abnormalities indicative of hemophilic arthropathy . One explanation might be the presence of subclinical joint bleeding that passed unrecognized by patients. However, although many reports have implied their existence [1,2], such bleeds have remained unproven.
ConclusionsNSBBs may play a role in the progression of PVT in liver cirrhosis. The benefits and risks of NSBBs in the management of liver cirrhosis should be fully weighed.
Authors: Hudec S, Hutyra M, Precek J, Latal J, Nykl R, Spacek M, Sluka M, Sanak D, Tudos Z, Navratil K, Pavlu L, Taborsky M Abstract The development of left ventricular thrombus (LVT) is a well-known and serious complication of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) due to the risk of systemic arterial embolism (SE), which is variable in its clinical picture and has potentially serious consequences depending on the extent of target organ damage. SE results in an increase in mortality and morbidity in these patients. LVT is one of the main causes of the development of ischaemic cardio-embolic cardiovascular events (CVE) ...
The aim of the study was to determine whether magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be used in assessment of biologic activity of intraluminal thrombus (ILT) and proteolytic processes of the abdominal aortic aneurysm wall.

CONCLUSION: Increased baPWV and the presence of carotid plaque appear to be associated with total CSVD burden in rural regions in China. PMID: 32037371 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
In this report, we present the case of a patient in whom the diagnosis of pulmonary artery sarcoma was made promptly and surgery was performed soon after. Pulmonary artery intimal sarcoma is a rare disorder arising from the intima of the pulmonary artery. Histopathology reveals that it is a tumour cell of mesenchymal origin. The signs and symptoms include chronic shortness of breath and other features of right ventricular failure, which mimic chronic pulmonary thromboembolism. The definitive diagnosis can rarely be made based on the symptoms and signs alone, and other investigations including echocardiography, computed tom...
Authors: Rossi UG, Ierardi AM, Cariati M Abstract A 77-year-old woman with a history of hypertension developed acute onset of aphasia and right hemiplegia and hemisensory loss. She was urgently referred to emergency department. Cerebral multidetector computed tomographic angiography (MD-CTA) revealed an acute ischemic stroke due to the occlusion of the left middle cerebral artery (Figure 1). Since the symptoms started three hours previously, the patient was candidate for mechanical thrombectomy. The patient then performed a selective digital subtraction angiography (DSA) of the left internal carotid artery that con...
CONCLUSIONS: Higher CAC scores were associated with higher odds of lacunar infarction, DSWMH, and ICAS. The presence and degree of CAC may be a useful indicator for SCVDs involving small and large vessels. PMID: 31969522 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: There were no complications resulting from partial sternotomy in the two cases presented. CEA with partial sternotomy could be an effective treatment option for CCAO in which the internal carotid artery is patent and thrombus extends to the proximal CCA. PMID: 31966920 [PubMed]
