This study shows that CA are released from periventricular and subpial regions to the cerebrospinal fluid and are present in the cervical lymph nodes, into which cerebrospinal fluid drains through the meningeal lymphatic system. We also show that CA can be phagocytosed by macrophages. We conclude that CA can act as containers that remove waste products from the brain and may be involved in a mechanism that cleans the brain. Moreover, we postulate that CA may contribute in some autoimmune brain diseases, exporting brain substances that interact with the immune system, and hypothesize that CA may contain brain markers that m...

This study focused on cognitive motor learning in relation to hand function of stroke survivors. MATERIAL AND METHODS We enrolled 30 subjects with cognitive and hand function disorders. The participants in each group were inpatients at a hospital in Korea and had undergone neurorehabilitation training (60 min). Groups 1 and 3 had tDCS applied for 20 min, while group 2 received sham tDCS for the same duration. Afterwards, groups 1 and 2 played Nintendo games for 20 min, but group 3 did not. The total intervention period was 40 min/day, 2 days/week, for 8 weeks. The cognitive and hand function of the subjects were assessed u...

Thank you for thoughtful comments. I agree with your comment that the possibility of bias exists from combined axillary artery (AA) cannulation. We carried out an analysis comparison outcome of pure AA and non-AA groups. Pure AA (n  = 177) and non-AA (n = 159) groups were reviewed. Results revealed that the AA group showed a lower rate in early stroke (2.8% vs 8.2%, P = .03), as well as lower trends in hospital (5.5% vs 10.1%, P = .09) and 30-day mortality rate (4.5% vs 9.4%, P = .08). In matching data (pairs = 87) , the AA group also showed a lower rate in early ...

, Jacobo-García K, Cossio-Aranda J Abstract Heart failure (HF) is a syndrome characterized basically by a circulatory deficit to cover the metabolic and energetic demands of the body. This condition has a broad spectrum in its clinical presentation, affects the quality of life significantly, impacts the family/social environment, and generates a great demand for health services. The purpose of this research is to report the situational diagnose of patients with HF in Mexico. We evaluated 292 patients, 70.2% were men. Average age was 56.7 ± 14.3 years. Ischemic heart disease is the main etiology (98 p...
