One-year prognosis of non-traumatic cortical subarachnoid haemorrhage: a prospective series of 34 patients

ConclusionsThe most frequent causes of cSAH in our series were cerebral amyloid angiopathy, ischaemic stroke, and vasculitis. This type of haemorrhage has a worse prognosis than other non-aneurysmal cSAH. There are numerous possible causes, and prognosis depends on the aetiology. In elderly patients, intracranial haemorrhage is frequently associated with cognitive impairment.ResumenIntroducciónLas hemorragias subaracnoideas corticales (HSAc) tienen numerosas etiologías. No hay estudios prospectivos que indiquen su evolución a largo plazo. El objetivo de este trabajo es describir las características clínicas y etiológicas de los pacientes con HSAc y conocer su pronóstico.MétodosEstudio observacional, prospectivo y multicéntrico. Se recogieron variables clínicas y radiológicas, y se siguió la evolución al año, observando la mortalidad, dependencia, tasa de resangrado y aparición de demencia.ResultadosSe incluyeron 34 pacientes (edad media 68.3 años, rango 27–89). Los síntomas más frecuentes fueron el déficit neurológico focal, con frecuencia transitorio y de repetición, y la cefalea. El TAC fue patológico en 28 pacientes (85%). Se realizó RM cerebral en 30 pacientes (88%), con isquemia aguda en 10 (29%), sangrados antiguos en 7 (21%) y siderosis superficial en otros 2 (6%). Se encontró etiología en 2...

CONCLUSIONS: Methamphetamine use may be considered a significant risk factor for aneurysmal SAH at a smaller aneurysm size than for other patients. These patients may benefit from a lower threshold for intervention and/or aggressive imaging and clinical follow-up. PMID: 32967503 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

To improve HF treatment, a comprehensive HF management program (4D project) was implemented in the Stockholm County (>2.1 million inhabitants). Design. A standardized care program centralized at five hospital-based HF clinics was implemented in 2014-2017. We registered from 2012 to 2017: (1) numbers of referrals and v...

In this study, a state-of-the-art custom U-Net model is presented with a dice similarity coefficient performance of 99.6% along with a transfer learning VGG-19 based model for COVID-19 versus pneumonia differentiation exhibiting an area under curve of 96.1%. The above was significantly improved over the baseline model trained with no segmentation in selected tomographic slices of the same dataset. The presented study highlights the importance of a robust preprocessing protocol for image analysis within a heterogeneous imaging dataset and assesses the potential diagnostic value of the presented COVID-19 model by comparing i...
