Case report: Anterior cerebral artery pediatric fusiform thrombosed giant aneurysm

ConclusionPediatric aneurysms are rare, and often present as dissecting thrombosed aneurysms or giant aneurysms. ACA dissecting aneurysms are rare but often occur at a young age, and they easily cause thrombosis, which may occlude the aneurysm and the parent artery, resulting in unknown bleeding sources.It is necessary to suspect rupture of an ACA dissecting aneurysm if there is an ICH and SAH of an unknown source of bleeding where the hematoma is localized near the ACA. Craniotomy can effectively remove the hematoma and identify the bleeding source, and it is more desirable to secure the parent artery to prevent re-rupture.

Authors: Smolka S, Desai MY, Achenbach S Abstract The ISCHEMIA trial investigated two major principles in the therapy of coronary artery disease (CAD), i.e., symptom relief and improvement of prognosis. Specifically, it was designed to answer the question of whether, after ruling out left main stenosis, a routine interventional strategy in addition to optimal medical therapy can improve clinical outcome. Overall, this hypothesis could not be confirmed. Nevertheless, the trial yields interesting new aspects in the field of cardiac imaging. As a noninvasive diagnostic approach for individuals with suspected...

Authors: Liu Z, Huang G, Zhou N, Man L Abstract Background and aim: Recalcitrant bladder neck contracture (BNC) is a common complication after transurethral resection of the prostate. Our aim was to show the outcomes of a modified cystoscopy-assisted laparoscopic Y-V plasty for BNC treatments.Material and methods: We retrospectively evaluated a series of 27 patients who underwent a modified cystoscopy-assisted laparoscopic Y-V plasty for recalcitrant BNC from January 2017 to September 2019. Urinary flow rate, international prostate symptom score (IPSS), international index of erectile function-5 (IIEF-5) and bladde...

Authors: Kanic V, Ekart R, Kanic Z Abstract Background: Data on acute kidney injury (AKI) in patients with myocardial infarction (MI) who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) after cardiac arrest are scarce. The prevalence of AKI, as classified by the Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) criteria; and its possible association with 30-day mortality were assessed. Methods: Data on 6387 patients with MI, 342 (5.3%) with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest or arrest immediately after admission before PCI, were retrospectively analyzed. The AKI and no-AKI groups were compared. The 30-day mortality ...

CONCLUSIONS: Almost one third of OHCA patients undergoing PCI die and more than one third of the fatalities are attributable to cardiovascular causes. The burden of ischemic and bleeding complications was consistently higher and the success rates of PCI lower among OHCA as compared to non-OHCA patients.
