CONCLUSIONS: CABG can be performed at an acceptable risk in patients with brain hypoperfusion. However, these patients suffered high stroke incidence during the follow-up. It is therefore, important to identify those patients preoperatively to plan and implement an appropriate treatment regime. PMID: 29616518 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

, Bene O, Kertész A, Édes I Abstract Dilated cardiomyopathy is the main cause of heart transplantation. The etiology is unknown in almost half of the cases. Many cardiac specific antibodies have been identified till now which can cause decreased cardiac function, ventricular tachycardia or sudden heart death. The prognosis of DCM is poor despite the development of medical treatment. Immunoadsorption is hopeful since, with the removal of antibodies, cardiac function and NYHA class can improve and LVAD/heart transplantation-free survival can be prolonged. At the University of Debrecen, Faculty of Medic...

In readinglast year's RSNA report, I was struck with just how little has changed.Here I am this year, 2017, and here's how I looked at RSNA 2016:A little grayer, perhaps a pound or two more. But otherwise same ol'Dalai. And same ol'RSNA. I even manned the RAD-AID booth again:Yes, I tied the bow-tie all by myself.This is a model housed at the Bayer booth of the airship RAD-AID hopes to use to bring imaging to underserved areas; I think the official rendering is much more impressive, and maybe even a little, well,buxom:I'm still lobbying for a seat on the first flight. Did I saybuxom? I meanthandsome!I did attend the requisi...

Neuronal intranuclear inclusion disease (NIID) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by eosinophilic hyaline intranuclear inclusions in cells in the central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous system and visceral organs. Although clinical diagnosis was difficult until recently, an increasing number of adult cases of leukoencephalopathy have been diagnosed antemortem with NIID based on the characteristic hyperintensity in the corticomedullary junction on diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and confirmatory skin biopsy.1 While adult-onset NIID is characterized by slowly progressive dementia, it may also present with acute...

An 84-year-old man, who presented lower limbs limb-shaking syndrome at orthostatism lasting a few seconds, was referred in our stroke unit. Magnetic resonance imaging showed an acute infarction in the right thalamus and the insular cortex, left extracranial carotid stenosis at 80%, and low flow in the right middle cerebral artery but did not explain limb-shaking syndrome symptomatology. We performed comparative positional brain perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), in the upright and in the supine position, to explore and localize hypoperfusion-endangered brain structures that may be involved in the...

Abstract Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability worldwide. Although neuroimaging has been used to examine brain changes related to recovery from stroke, cerebral perfusion changes after rehabilitation have yet to be elucidated. The aim of this study was to evaluate the regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) changes and their associations with gross motor functions after neurorehabilitation therapy in stroke patients. A total of 7 patients with middle cerebral artery (MCA) infarction received conventional neurorehabilitation therapy twice per day for 4‐6 weeks on admission. Brain perfusion images were acquired bef...

Abstract Rationale: Holmes’ tremor is an uncommon neurologic disorder following brain insults, and its pathogenesis is undefined. The interruption of the dento-rubro-thalamic tract and secondary deterioration of the nigrostriatal pathway are both required to initiate Holmes’ tremor. We used nuclear medicine imaging tools to analyze a patient with concurrent infarction in different zones of each side of the thalamus. Finding whether the paramedian nuclear groups of the thalamus were injured was a decisive element for developing Holmes’ tremor. Patient concerns: A 36-year-old woman was admitted to our ...
