AbstractPurpose of reviewHigh-resolution magnetic resonance vessel wall imaging (VWI) permits direct visualization of intracranial arterial wall pathology, providing diagnostic and prognostic information that is complementary to conventional imaging techniques. We highlight the most recent studies that have advanced the clinical application of VWI.Recent findingsVWI aids in distinguishing and diagnosing intracranial atherosclerotic disease (ICAD), intracranial dissections, central nervous system vasculitis, reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome, and moyamoya disease. VWI may help predict recurrent stroke in ICAD, t...

AbstractObjectivePosterior circulation ischemic stroke (PCiS) constitutes 20 –30% of ischemic stroke cases. Detailed information about differences between PCiS and anterior circulation ischemic stroke (ACiS) remains scarce. Such information might guide clinical decision making and prevention strategies. We studied risk factors and ischemic stroke subtypes in PCiS vs. ACiS and lesion location on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in PCiS.MethodsOut of 3,301 MRIs from 12 sites in the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) Stroke Genetics Network (SiGN), we included 2,381 cases with acute DWI lesi...

A paraplegic man made the first kick of the World Cup in Brazil in 2014; another paralyzed man was able to move all four of his limbs through mind-control, and yet another could walk down the aisle with the love of his life due to robotic structures called exoskeletons. These are just a few mind-blowing and heart-warming stories about their current power, but they haven’t reached their full potential yet. We looked around what exoskeleton technology can do today and what it promises for tomorrow. Exoskeleton becomes as real as a donut Remember the huge mechanic beasts fighting against the indigenous people on m...

Abstract Fat grafting is effectively used in the lower eyelid and periorbital area for rejuvenation of the aging face. Several complications may occur with fat grafting, including volume undercorrection or overcorrection, contour irregularities, prolonged bruising and swelling, infection, granulomas and inflammation, and vascular embolization with visual loss or stroke. In many cases, complications can be effectively treated, although permanent and serious injury can occur. Appropriate surgical techniques help to prevent most of these complications. An understanding of how and why complications of fat grafting of ...
