Authors: Kim JJ, Cho KC, Suh SH, Chung J, Jang CK, Joo JY, Kim YB Abstract Objectives: Aneurysm remnants after microsurgical clipping have a risk of regrowth and rupture and have not been validated in the era of three-dimensional angiography. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate the angiographic outcome using three-dimensional rotational images and determine the predictors for remnants after microsurgical clipping.Methods: Between January 2014 and May 2017, 139 aneurysms in 106 patients who were treated with microsurgical clipping, were eligible for this study. For the determination of aneurysm remnants after mi...

We describe a case of eosinophilic temporal arteritis in a 61-year-old woman with hypereosinophilic syndrome, who developed subcutaneous nodules in the temporal areas and digital cyanosis with small nodules on the sides of her fingers. Ultrasound revealed occlusion and corkscrew-like changes of the temporal and digital arteries, respectively. Temporal artery biopsy revealed eosinophilic vasculitis without giant cell formation. Angiography showed occlusion of the ulnar and digital arteries. Administration of low-dose corticosteroid improved the temporal artery swelling and digital cyanosis. More reports of similar cases are...

Study Design: This was a retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data. Objective: To investigate the incidence of thromboembolism in patients who received tranexamic acid (TXA) after lumbar spine fusion and determine the diagnostic value of lower limb duplex sonography as a screening test. Summary of Background Data: TXA is effective in reducing blood drainage in spine fusion surgery but some studies have reported increased incidence of venous thromboembolism associated with TXA. Materials and Methods: One hundred twenty-two patients who underwent lumbar fusion for degenerative spinal disease received ...

Conclusions: There is extensive and increasing evidence that a range of retinal vascular signs and disease are closely linked to CeVD, including subclinical and clinical CeVD. New technology including AI-DL will allow further translation to clinical utilization.

CONCLUSION: We established a rhesus macaque model of local cerebral ischemia by autologous thrombus placement. This model has important implications for basic and clinical research on cerebral ischemia. MRI and DSA can evaluate the models to ensure accuracy and effectiveness.

Conclusions: Intraoperative use of indocyanine green angiography was associated with significantly lower odds of fat necrosis. This technology may reduce additional revision operations and improve patient satisfaction. Additional studies are needed to determine whether this innovation is cost-effective and generalizable to the entire autologous breast reconstruction population. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic, III.

Conclusion: Delayed spontaneous suprachoroidal hemorrhage can present as a choroidal mass. Multimodal imaging helps to differentiate it from other sight-threatening and life-threatening ocular diseases. PMID: 32095214 [PubMed]

Authors: Karimi S, Arabi A, Shahraki T, Safi S Abstract Retinal hemangioblastoma (also referred to as retinal capillary hemangioma) is a benign lesion originating from the endothelial and glial components of the neurosensory retina and optic nerve head. Historically known as a manifestation of the von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease, it can be seen as an isolated finding or in association with some rare ocular conditions. In addition to characteristic ophthalmoscopic features, results of numerous ancillary tests including angiography, ultrasound, optical coherence tomography, and genetic tests may support the diagnosis...

CONCLUSIONS: The clinical features and angiographic type of TA in Iran are different from most Asian countries. Differences in angiographic and clinical features may lead to delayed diagnosis. The issue of delay in diagnosis should create awareness among health care providers that TA is not a very rare disease in Iranians and failure to pay attention to warning symptoms may delay the diagnosis.
