Performance of Electrical Velocimetry for Noninvasive Cardiac Output Measurements in Perioperative Patients After Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

We examined the usefulness of a noninvasive electrical velocimetry (EV) device based on the thoracic bioimpedance method for perioperative hemodynamic monitoring in patients after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. Patients and Methods: In total, 18 patients who underwent surgical clipping or endovascular coiling for ruptured aneurysms were examined prospectively. Simultaneous cardiac index (CI) measurements obtained with EV (CIEV) and reference transpulmonary thermodilution (CITPTD) were compared. A total of 223 pairs of data were collected. Results: A significant correlation was found between CIEV and CITPTD (r=0.86; P

Conclusion: Neuro-endoscopic hematoma removal may be the optimal management method for hemorrhagic MMD in the acute stage in terms of the maximum preservation of pre-existing collateral anastomosis without affecting the potential donor vessels used for future revascularization surgery.

AbstractTo perform a systematic review of the techniques for transient circulatory arrest during intracerebral aneurysm surgery according to the PRISMA guidelines. Search of PubMed and Google Scholar using the following: ( “heart arrest” OR “cardiac standstill”[All Fields]) AND (“intracranial aneurysm” OR “intracranial”[All Fields] AND “aneurysm”[All Fields]). A total of 41 original articles were retrieved, of which 17 were excluded (review articles, editorials and single-case reports). A total of 24 separate articles published between 1984 and 2018 were included ...

AbstractObjectiveTo explore the effect of remote ischemic conditioning (RIC) on blood coagulation function and cerebral blood flow in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage.Patients and methodsAccording to inclusion and exclusion standards, from October 2017 to June 2018, 30 consecutive patients of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage admitted to Intensive Care Unit, Department of Neurosurgery at Xuanwu Hospital, were given remote ischemic conditioning 5 times intervention to each patient within 7  days, and blood coagulation function testing, including prothrombin activity (PTA), prothrombin time (PT), activa...

In this study, we evaluated inflammatory and prothrombotic pathways by examining mRNA expression in whole blood of SAH patients with and without vasospasm.MethodsAdult SAH patients with vasospasm (n = 29) and without vasospasm (n = 21) were matched for sex, race/ethnicity, and aneurysm treatment method. Diagnosis of vasospasm was made by angiography. mRNA expression was measured by Affymetrix Human Exon 1.0 ST Arrays. SAH patients with vasospasm were compared to those without vasospasm by ANCOVA to identify differential gene, exon, and alternatively spliced transcript expression. Analyses were a...

AbstractBackgroundObtaining an accurate estimation of renal function is germane to optimizing care in critically ill patients. However, there is no consensus on the most accurate renal function assessment to utilize in this patient population, particularly in aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) patients. Thus, the objective of this observational study was to determine the comparability of renal function equations to body surface area (BSA)-adjusted 8-h creatinine clearance (CrCl) in aSAH patients.MethodsA PubMed search investigated the applicability of various renal function equations in critically ill patient popula...

Conclusion: Iatrogenic intracerebral pseudoaneurysm formation is an exceedingly rare complication of ventricular catheterization but is associated with significant mortality. Identifying a pseudoaneurysm in this context warrants prompt and definitive treatment with microsurgical or endovascular treatment. PMID: 31583176 [PubMed]

Conclusion: The ipsilateral ONP is a common sign found in posterior communicating artery aneurysms; however, such aneurysm can have different presentations due to the elevation of intracranial pressure, and, in rarer cases, the ONP cannot be operated as a localizing sign. PMID: 31583174 [PubMed]
