Remote acute subarachnoid hemorrhage after drainage of chronic subdural hematoma: A case report and review of the literature

Conclusion Slow decompression with closed-system drainage is recommended to avoid rapid dynamic intracranial changes during drainage of a subdural hematoma, including brain shift or restoration of normal perfusion,to prevent devastating complications.

Conclusion EMC should be considered first from an EE’s perspective, addressing concerns at the PCB level. MEs can get involved when enclosing the PCB or device. This is a collaborative effort. Both specialties should work through planning and execution. The ability to leverage a range of materials and components for EM enclosures allows engineers to make informed choices to meet the EMC requirements of a device. When considered at early stages, engineers can make EM an integral part of the design approach.

CASE SUMMARY: A 62-year-old previously healthy man presented with left lower quadrant pain and fever. Physical examination showed left lower quadrant peritonitis. Computed tomography scan showed a pelvic abscess with extraluminal air (Fig. 1). Intravenous antibiotics were started, and CT-guided percutaneous drainage was performed. The drain was removed 1 week after discharge. One week later, he presented with dysuria and pneumaturia and was started on antibiotics. Colonoscopy confirmed diverticulosis with no other mucosal abnormalities. He underwent a successful laparoscopic sigmoidectomy with colovesical fistula takedown.

Conclusion The best algorithm to localise the culprit artery includes ST-elevation in leads II and V6 related to Cx, and ST-elevation in leads III, aVF and V3 related to right coronary artery. Our algorithm has been validated internally and externally, and works better than other previously published algorithms.

Background Visual–functional mismatch between coronary angiography and fractional flow reserve (FFR) has been reported, and the underlying reason remains poorly understood. Therefore, the relationship between angiographic measurements and FFR was evaluated, and predictors for FFR in intermediate coronary artery stenosis were determined. Methods Consecutive 314 patients (405 lesions) with a lesion of 30–80% angiographic diameter stenosis who underwent invasive FFR were recruited. The myocardial area supplied by the coronary artery distal to the stenosis was evaluated using a modified version of the Bypass A...

Background Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. According to the results of various studies, protein convertase subtilisin kexin type-9 (PCSK9) was determined as a novel risk factor for stable coronary artery disease. Few studies have investigated the relationship between PCSK9 levels and the severity of coronary artery disease in patients with acute coronary syndrome; thus, we herein aimed to investigate this relationship in patients with non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) who underwent coronary angiography. Patients and methods Herein, 168 patients with NSTEMI were pro...

Gulii, Maria A. Teplonogova, Olga S. Ivanova, Alexander E. Baranchikov, Vladimir K. IvanovAbstractA series of polyimide/CeO2 nanocomposite films were fabricated based on three polymer matrices. The prepared films were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), thermomechanical analysis (TMA), and also simultaneous thermogravimetric (TGA) and differential thermal analysis (DTA), the latter two having been performed both in air...

The poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA)/poly(styrene-co-4-styrene-sulfonate) (PSS) NPs were prepared by solvent displacement, and then they were used as emulsifier particles to fabricate TA-encapsulated PE. It was found that the TA encapsulation efficiency was...
