Conclusions: CG-FAST scale could be an effective and simple scale for accurate identification of LVOS among AIS patients. Introduction Large vessel occlusion stroke (LVOS) often leads to severe disability and mortality. Although endovascular therapy (EVT) has been proved to be effective for LVOS patients (1–9), especially in anterior circulation, its benefit is highly time-dependent (10, 11). As hospitals with around-the-clock endovascular capability are scarce in many parts of the world and patients admitted directly to a CSC would have better outcomes than those receiving drip and ship treatment (12, 13), thi...

This article presents an overview on recent advances in optical non-invasive diagnostics of the peripheral hemodynamics of the upper and lower limbs in rheumatological and endocrinological profile patients. Among these are laser Doppler flowmetry (LDF), tissue reflectance oximetry (TRO), pulse oximetry (PO) and fluorescent spectroscopy (FS). The laser Doppler flowmetry method allows for investigating the blood flow in the microcirculatory bed in vivo. The method is based on probing the tissue with laser radiation and analyzing back reflected from the tissue radiation partially scattered from moving red blood cells (Bonner...

​BY FREDDIE IRIZARRY-DELGADO; VAROON KAKAIYA; &AHMED RAZIUDDIN, MDAn 86-year-old African-American woman was brought to the ED by her daughter after two days of nutritional neglect, abdominal pain, and altered mental status. Her daughter said her mother felt lightheaded, appeared dehydrated, and vomited nonbilious watery fluid once. The patient had a history of diabetes mellitus type 2, DVT/PE, dementia, and early signs of parkinsonism.Her vital signs were remarkable only for tachypnea (24 bpm). Her troponin I was markedly elevated at 1.7 ng/mL. A D-dimer was ordered because of her history of unprovoked DVT/PE, and it...

Conclusions: About 1 in 5 patients undergoing PET MPI are referred for coronary angiography within 90 days of testing, a rate greater than that reported for SPECT MPI, likely due to higher baseline risk of patients undergoing PET MPI testing. While referral rates for coronary angiography varied based on the presence or absence of prior documented clinical CAD and presence of test abnormalities, nearly 36% of patients with moderate-severe ischemia were not referred. Further work is needed to characterize why such patients are not referred for invasive evaluation to optimize the use of PET MPI in this high-risk population.

Conclusions: Our results suggest that only a minority of patients with HU/E and S-HF have obstructive CAD. It may be possible to stratify patients using demographic and non-invasive tests to direct only those with high likelihood of O-CAD for coronary angiography. These results should be validated in large registry populations.

Commonly, patients present at early age with seizure and unlike our case patient presented with SAH and stroke like symptoms.Disclosure: Dr. Lee has nothing to disclose.
