Paravertebral calcification as a potential indicator for nonaccidental trauma - Kojima K, Nimtz J, Martin SW, Guertin SR, Cavenagh EC.

We report a case of nonaccidental trauma (NAT) involving a 23-month-old boy who presented with seizures, acute subarachnoid hemorrhage, and acute subdural hemorrhage. Ophthalmologic examination showed bilateral intraretinal hemorrhages. Further evaluation ...

Conclusion Our results indicate that BI-1 may participate in the regulation of EBI after SAH by regulating IRE1-JNK pathway. Thus, the results suggest that BI-1 may be a potential therapeutic target for SAH treatment. PMID: 29334839 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Cerebral vasospasm is an uncontrollable and sometimes fatal complication occurring after subarachnoid hemorrhage. However, cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome is a rare complication after subarachnoid hemorrhage. Although plain computed tomography of cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome looks similar to cerebral infarction induced by cerebral vasospasm, they should be distinguished from each other because they require completely different treatments.

Purpose of review Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is diagnosed primarily as a cause of lobar intracerebral hemorrhages (ICH) in elderly patients. With improving MRI techniques, however, the role of CAA in causing other symptoms has become clear. Recognizing the full clinical spectrum of CAA is important for diagnosis and treatment. In this review we summarize recent insights in clinical CAA features, MRI biomarkers, and management. Recent findings The rate of ICH recurrence in CAA is among the highest of all stroke subtypes. Cortical superficial siderosis (cSS) and cortical subarachnoid hemorrhage (cSAH) are importa...

Lumbar drainage (LD) is the choice for the treatment of acute hydrocephalus and increased intracranial pressure in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). It also reduces vasospasm risk and delayed ischemic neurological events. We evaluated the role of LD in the preoperative management of patients with aneurysmal SAH (aSAH).

In conclusion, the cutoff age for poor m RS score>  2 was 3 to 9 years older for EC than for SC. Actual age was one of the indications for elderly patients to achieve the optimum outcome; however, the treatment indication should be carefully considered based on the condition in each country.

AbstractThe Ross procedure offers excellent short-term outcome but the long-term durability is under debate. Reinterventions and follow-up of 100 consecutive patients undergoing Ross Procedure at our centre (1993 –2011) were analysed. Follow-up was available for 96 patients (97%) with a median duration of 5.3 (0.1–17.1) years. Median age of the patient cohort was 15.2 (0.04–58.4) years with 76 males. 93% had underlying congenital aortic stenosis. Root replacement technique was applied in all. The most common valved conduits used for reconstruction of the right ventricular outflow tract were homografts (66...
