Stent Reconstruction of Carotid Tonsillar Loop Dissection Using Telescoping Peripheral Stents

Conclusions: Stent reconstruction of complex cerebrovascular anatomy is increasingly feasible with advancements in stent technology and catheter support system design. This technique may be of use to neuroendovascular surgeons who encounter variant ICA anatomy.Intervent Neurol 2018;7:189 –195

CONCLUSIONS: Using cluster enrollment, we discovered minority female caregivers were more likely to have unknown or poorly controlled vascular risk factors compared to stroke patients. Innovative health screening tools may benefit the extended family of minority patients participating in clinical trials. PMID: 30442422 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: 25 March 2019Source: Journal of Alloys and Compounds, Volume 778Author(s): Jaiveer Singh, Min-Seong Kim, Ji-Hyun Lee, Hwanuk Guim, Shi-Hoon ChoiAbstractMicrostructure evolution in E-form and AZ31 magnesium (Mg) alloys was studied via ex-situ mini-V-bending tests. Initially, the E-form and AZ31 Mg alloys had different crystallographic textures and average grain-size distributions. Direct observation of microstructural evolution during the ex-situ mini-V-bending tests was experimentally observed via electron back-scatter diffraction (EBSD) technique. The EBSD results revealed how twin bands (TBs) developed ...

This study evaluated cognitive impairment in stroke survivors and examined its relationship with peripheral blood levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). It is hypothesized that serum BDNF levels significantly correlate with cognitive impairment. Cognition was assessed in 47 stroke survivors and 35 normal subjects using the Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE). Serum BDNF concentrations were determined using BDNF ELISA kits. Data were expressed as median (10th–90th percentiles) and analysed using non-parametric tests on SPSS statistics. The stroke survivors and controls were middle aged (in their fifties)...

ConclusionsTreatment with warfarin or aspirin both lead to similar outcomes after surgical bAVR. Combining aspirin with warfarin may lead to a small decrease in thromboembolism and mortality but is accompanied by increased bleeding. For TAVR patients, aspirin is equivalent to DAPT for reducing thromboembolism and mortality, with a possible decrease in bleeding.

ConclusionsIn patients with significant bleeding following cardiac surgery, PCC administration seems to be more effective than FFP in reducing perioperative blood transfusions. No additional risks of thromboembolic events or other adverse reactions were observed. Randomized controlled trials are needed to definitively establish the safety of PCC in cardiac surgery.
