Neurovascular Embolization Coils Can Up Image Artifact on MRA Neurovascular Embolization Coils Can Up Image Artifact on MRA
Some neurovascular embolization coils can cause increased image artifact on follow-up magnetic resonance angiography, the US Food and Drug Administration warns.News Alerts
Conclusion In our cohort of consecutive patients with clinical ISR, one-sixth showed underlying cNA as the predominant substrate of restenosis. This unique underlying substrate is related to the time elapsed from stent implantation and the absence of previous treatment with statins or ACEi/ARB and is associated with poorer acute results after reintervention.
Conclusion For patients with very long native coronary artery disease, R-ZES and EES implantation showed comparable angiographic and clinical outcomes through 1 year of follow-up.
Rakesh V Reddy, Sanjay Agarwal, Vinod Choudhary, Amit K SinghalIndian Journal of Anaesthesia 2018 62(12):988-990 A 39-year-old female patient with hepatitis B-related decompensated chronic liver disease underwent living donor liver transplantation. Preoperatively, she had a normal electrocardiogram (ECG) and echocardiography, and also a negative dobutamine stress echocardiography test. Intraoperative course went uneventful. Two hours postoperatively, she developed hypotension. Initially, hypotension was treated with fluids and blood products after confirming normal echocardiography, but with time, patient's haemodynam...
In conclusion, three-dimensional images of the pulmonary vasculature can be created using 21 mL (including 6 mL for the test injection) of contrast medium.
DISCUSSION: In this case report, we are sharing our experience in management of this challenging case in view of the rarity of such peculiar clinical condition and the unfavourable presentation along with the lack of clear-cut Guideline and Consensus whether to/not to open such huge and immensely thrombosed symptomatic coronary artery fistula as well as the dilemma of choosing the best long-term medical treatment between antiplatelets vs anticoagulants in such young patient.

CONCLUSION: Plasma betatrophin levels were associated with the presence and severity of CAD and PAD, suggesting betatrophin has a role in atherosclerosis. PMID: 30518729 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION:: For the treatment of dysfunctional or immature hemodialysis access, the transjugular approach is a feasible and effective option that avoids injury to the graft or draining vein, especially in immature fistulas. PMID: 30520334 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
The prime job of cardiologists is to restore coronary blood flow in an emergency fashion. While we do this with reasonable success ,there is still a missing link between our Initial aim and achieved goal. It’s all too common situation in any busy cath lab , to see two similar STEMI patients with identical time window &proximal LAD as IRA , in totally different scenarios. In the first patient we find a trickle of flow in LAD , who is relatively comfortable with normal LV function (In whom , emergency primary PCI might appear redundant.) While the other patient , even after rapidly established TIMI ...
ConclusionsWe demonstrate the feasibility of a rabbit model of embolic MCA occlusion with angiographic documentation. Serial MR imaging demonstrated changes comparable to those observed in human ischemic stroke, confirmed histopathologically.
Publication date: Available online 7 December 2018Source: The Annals of Thoracic SurgeryAuthor(s): Andrew Greenspon, Louis Samuels, Lee GreensponAbstractA 49 year old female presented after a respiratory infection with a abnormal chest X-ray demonstrating a cystic calcified mass at the base of the right lung. Chest CT angiogram demonstrated the blood supply arose from the abdominal aorta. This Extralobar sequestration was surgically resected via Video assisted thoracoscopy without complication. The pathology demonstrated a cystic hamartoma. This case highlights the importance of pre-operative evaluation of the blood supply...
