Abstract OBJECTIVEThe authors sought to investigate the incidence and predictors of venous thromboembolic events (VTEs) after craniotomy for tumor resection, which are not well established, and the efficacy of and risks associated with VTE chemoprophylaxis, which remains controversial.METHODSThe authors investigated the incidence of VTEs in a consecutive series of patients presenting to the authors' institution for resection of an intracranial lesion between 2012 and 2017. Information on patient and tumor characteristics was collected and independent predictors of VTEs were determined using stepwise multivariate l...

Korean JLK Inspection said yesterday that it launched its AIHub artificial intelligence-powered medical image diagnostics platform. The newly launched AIHub system is designed to analyze images from a number of different imaging modalities, including magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, X-ray and mammography, the Seoul-based company said. JLK Inspection claims the system can detect and monitor for more than 30 medical conditions in 14 regions of the body. The company added that the system is focused on brain diseases and conditions including ischemic stroke, hemorrhagic stroke, brain aneurysm and Alzheimer&rsqu...

AbstractNowadays, cranial ultrasonography (US) of the newborn represents the first imaging method in brain damage study and its possible outcomes. This exam is performed using the natural fontanelles, especially the anterior one. It is fast, non-invasive and does not produce any side effect. Ultrasonographic examination is usually performed in cases of prematurity, especially in children with birth weight less than 1500 g, because important informations about the possible presence of pathologies such as cerebral hemorrhage and hypoxic –ischemic encephalopathy are given. This approach can be useful also in the study o...

In conclusion, miRNA-144-3p aggravated ICH-induced SBI by targeting and downregulating FPR2, thereby contributing to neurological dysfunction and neural apoptosis via PI3K/AKT pathway activation. These findings suggest that inhibiting miRNA-144-3p may offer an effective approach to attenuating brain damage incurred after ICH and a potential therapy to improve ICH-induced SBI.

Conclusion: VTE incidence in our study was significantly higher than reported in general population at similar age. However, the inclusion of more symptomatic and serious HHT patients could be selection bias. The low number of patients, may influence the results. IDA and hospitalization were the most important associated conditions. Most patients tolerated well the anticoagulation therapy.DisclosuresNo relevant conflicts of interest to declare.
