ConclusionsThis study demonstrated the feasibility of total laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy combined with vascular resection and artificial vascular graft reconstruction in properly selected cases of pancreatic cancer with vein involvement after neoadjuvant chemotherapy. It is worth noting that skilled laparoscopic technicians and effective teamwork are necessities for safe completion of the procedure.

AbstractPurposeTo evaluate a  novel flow-independent 3D isotropic REACT sequence compared with CE-MRA for the imaging of extracranial arteries in acute ischemic stroke (AIS).MethodsThis was a  retrospective study of 35 patients who underwent a stroke protocol at 3 T including REACT (fixed scan time: 2:46 min) and CE-MRA of the extracranial arteries. Three radiologists evaluated scans regarding vessel delineation, signal, and contrast and assessed overall image noise and artifacts using 5-point scales (5: excellent delineation/no artifacts). Apparent signal- and contrast-to-noise ratios (aS...

ConclusionAcute traumatic cerebrovascular injury is a prevalent complication in civilian PBI, frequently involving both the arterial and venous sinus systems. Although some radiographic features might be associated with presence of vascular injury, assessment of the intracranial vasculature in the acute phase of all PBI is essential for early diagnosis. Treatment of vascular injury remains variable depending on local practice.

Background: Patients with spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) have high mortality and morbidity rates; approximately one-third of patients with ICH experience hematoma expansion (HE). The spot sign is an established and validated imaging marker for HE. High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) is an established laboratory marker for inflammation and secondary brain injury following ICH.Objective: To determine the association between the spot sign and hs-CRP, hematoma expansion, and clinical outcomes.Methods: Between December 2014 and September 2016, we prospectively recruited 1,964 patients with acute symptomatic...

CONCLUSION: Hemodynamically unstable patients in Zones 1 and 2 generally underwent surgery before CT, confirming that the low threshold for exploration in such patients remains. Only 25% (2/8) of Zone 3 PNI were explored, with the high negative predictive value of CT angiography providing confidence that it was capable of excluding major injury in the majority of cases. No deaths from PNI that survived to treatment at Role 3 were identified, lending evidence to the current management protocols being utilized in Afghanistan.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewEstablishing a diagnosis of ischemic heart disease (IHD) in women, including assessment for coronary microvascular dysfunction (CMD) when indicated, can be challenging. Access to performance of invasive testing when appropriate may be limited, and noninvasive imaging assessments have evolved. This review will summarize the various noninvasive imaging modalities available for the diagnosis of IHD and CMD in women, outlining indications, performance modalities, advantages, and limitations.Recent FindingsWhile stress echocardiography and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) myocardial pe...

Rationale: Although surgery has been the standard treatment for pancreaticoduodenal trauma because of the complex anatomical relation of the affect organs, transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) has recently been introduced as a safe and effective treatment. However, TAE for pancreaticoduodenal arterial hemorrhage (PDAH) can be challenging because it is difficult to localize the involved artery and to embolize the bleeding completely due to the abundant collateral channels of the pancreaticoduodenal artery (PDA). Patient concerns: Herein, we report 2 cases of PDAH that occurred after falling down in case 1 and a pe...
