ConclusionIn carotid artery dissections, prodromal symptoms such as transient ischemic attack, like in our patient, are rarely present in children. For good long term outcomes, it is very important to suspect, diagnose and initiate appropriate treatment in a rapid manner in carotid artery dissection before severe neurological findings such as acute ischemic stroke develops.

Publication date: Available online 21 July 2018Source: Journal of Clinical NeuroscienceAuthor(s): Zhaohong Kong, Yan Hong, Jiang Zhu, Xin Cheng, Yumin LiuAbstractTo investigate the role of venous infusion of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) in the reendothelialization of acute focal cerebral ischemia model in rats. And explore the mechanism of VEGF to promote angiogenesis of functional recovery in focal cerebral ischemia of rat. A model of middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAo) was used to mimic ischemia following EPCs extraction from the same donor rats. EPCs were characterized by CD34, CD45 and CD133 expressions, and...

By SAURABH JHA Medical Imaging and the Price of Corn After the Napoleonic wars, the price of corn in England became unaffordable. The landowners were blamed for the high price, which some believed was a result of the unreasonably high rents for farm land. Economist David Ricardo disagreed. According to Ricardo, detractors had the directionality wrong. It was the scarcity of corn (the high demand relative to its supply) that induced demand for the most fertile land. That is, the rent did not increase the price of corn. The demand for corn raised the rent. Rent was a derived demand. Directionality is important. Getting direc...

The objective of this study was to examine the usefulness of these less invasive small-bore aspiration catheters for drainage of pneumothorax.MethodsBaseline characteristics and laboratory test data at admission of 70 patients who were admitted to and underwent drainage treatment for pneumothorax at our hospital between April 2011 and February 2017 were retrospectively reviewed based on their medical records. The primary endpoints were factors associated with drainage treatment failure, and baseline characteristics and laboratory test data were compared between those treated with a small-bore aspiration catheter and those ...

Conclusions: The current findings indicate that MST1 participates in SAH-induced BBB disruption and white matter fiber damage via the downstream NF-κB-MMP-9 signaling pathway. Therefore, MST1 antagonists may serve as a novel therapeutic target to prevent early brain injury in SAH patients. PMID: 30018671 [PubMed - in process]
