Serial Quantitative Computed Tomography Perfusion in Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage.

Serial Quantitative Computed Tomography Perfusion in Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage. Can J Neurol Sci. 2016 Jan 13;:1-6 Authors: Lum C, Hogan MJ, Sinclair J, English S, Lesiuk H, Shankar J, Ayoub H Abstract PURPOSE: Computed tomography perfusion (CTP) has been performed to predict which patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage are at risk of developing delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI). Patients with severe arterial narrowing may have significant reduction in perfusion. However, many patients have less severe arterial narrowing. There is a paucity of literature evaluating perfusion changes which occur with mild to moderate narrowing. The purpose of our study was to investigate serial whole-brain CTP/computed tomography angiography in aneurysm-related subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) patients with mild to moderate angiographic narrowing. METHODS: We retrospectively studied 18 aSAH patients who had baseline and follow-up whole-brain CTP/computed tomography angiography. Thirty-one regions of interest/hemisphere at six levels were grouped by vascular territory. Arterial diameters were measured at the circle of Willis. The correlation between arterial diameter and change in CTP values, change in CTP in with and without DCI, and response to intra-arterial vasodilator therapy in DCI patients was evaluated. RESULTS: There was correlation among the overall average cerebral blood flow (CBF; R=0.49, p

Background Recent studies of patients with intracerebral hemorrhage suggest an association between peripheral blood neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio and neurologic deterioration. We aimed to study the prognostic utility of neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio in predicting inpatient mortality in aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. Methods We conducted a retrospective electronic medical record review of the clinical, laboratory, and radiographic data of patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage 18 years of age or older presenting to the neuroscience intensive care unit from January 1, 2011, to December 31, 2017.

In conclusion, isoflurane protected against BBB disruption caused by carbogen inhalation in mice and rats, but unlike isoflurane-mediated protection against ischemic BBB disruption, the effect could not be explained by anesthesia-induced hypothermia.

There is a substantial elevation in serum sLOX ‐1 levels after aSAH. There is an intimate correlation of serum sLOX‐1 levels with hemorrhagic severity. There is an independent association of serum sLOX‐1 levels with delayed cerebral ischemia. AbstractObjectiveDelayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) greatly contributes to the high morbidity and mortality of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) patients. Expression of lectin ‐like oxidized low‐density lipoprotein receptor‐1 (LOX‐1) was substantially raised in the basilar arterial wall of SAH rabbits. We attempted to ascertain the relationship between serum soluble...

Background/objective: Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a devastating neurologic event for which markers to assess poor outcome are needed. Elevated cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) protein may result from inflammation and blood-brain barrier (BBB) disruption that occurs during SAH. We sought to determine if CSF protein level is associated with functional outcome after SAH. Methods: We prospectively collected single-center demographic and clinical data for consecutive patients admitted with spontaneous SAH.

CONCLUSIONS: Ages over 65 years and HT were an important predictor of 30-day mortality in a subgroup of ICH patients, whereas HT and AF were significant prognostic factors in SAH. To reduce early death, management for stroke cases needed to take into account the specifics for older age patients with HT, and AF. PMID: 31932155 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is the most devastating form of stroke. Reducing neuronal apoptosis is an important countermeasure against early brain injury (EBI) after SAH. Recent evidence indicates that OX40-OX40L coupling is critical for cell survival and proliferation. Current study was performed to detect the role of recombinant OX40 (ReOX40) against neuronal apoptosis after SAH. The endovascular perforation model of SAH was performed on Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats. ReOX40 was injected intracerebroventricularly (i.c.v) 1 h after SAH induction and the following methods were employed: neurological functi...

AbstractBackgroundMyelin basic protein (MBP) is the second most abundant protein in central nervous system myelin. Since the 1980s, it has been regarded as a marker of brain tissue injury in both trauma and disease. There have been no recent reports regarding MBP in aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH).MethodsOne hundred four SAH patients with ruptured aneurysms underwent endovascular treatment within 24  h of rupture, and 156 blood samples were collected: 104 on days 0–3, 32 on days 4–6 and 20 on days 9–12 post-SAH. MBP levels were assayed using ELISA and compared with the clinical status on ad...

CONCLUSION A standard guideline and proper training are needed for bedside nurses, and a potential tool that can render ICP trend at a proper scale at bedside would help clinicians correctly document ICP.
