Nontraumatic spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage: Baseline characteristics and early outcomes
This article gives an overview of the baseline characteristics, therapeutic procedures, and early outcomes in patients suffering from spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage. AbstractBackground and PurposeHemorrhagic stroke, particularly nontraumatic spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (SICH), is a cerebrovascular condition with unfavorable outcomes. The aims of the present study were to evaluate patients who suffered from SICH and investigate the early outcomes in a single ‐center study.MethodsDuring a study ‐period of 6 years (2008–2014), 613 consecutive patients (mean age, 72 ± 12.7 years; 51.1% female), who suffered from nontraumatic SICH and were treated at the Department of Neurology at the University Hospital of Schleswig‐Holstein, Campus Lübeck, Germany, were included and prospectivel y analyzed.ResultsDuring a mean hospitalization time of 12 days, 148 patients (24.1%) died, 47% of those within the first 2 days and 79% within the first week. The patients who died stayed at the hospital for a shorter time (3) than those who survived (p 10 (OR, 10.5; 95%‐CI, 5.6–19.5;p 70 years (OR, 0.56; 95%‐CI, 0.35–0.9;p = .017), NIHSS score> 10 at admission (OR, 0.07; 95%‐CI, 0.04–0.13;p
Conclusions: Short-term results indicate that MCGR may be a good option in SMA-associated collapsing spine deformity to reduce the burden of repetitive lengthening procedures. The authors recommend apical deformity control in the convex side in case of curve rigidity. In addition, including the pelvis in the instrumentation at index surgery is critical to prevent distal adding-on. Level of Evidence: Level IV—retrospective case series.
Conclusion: There are several risk factors for subsequent contralateral SCFE. On the basis of the available data, younger patients with a high PSA of the unaffected hip would most likely benefit from prophylactic fixation of the unaffected hip. Level of Evidence: Level II.
The objective of this study was to identify depression using the Mental Component Score (MCS-12) of the Short Form-12 (SF-12) survey and to correlate with patient outcomes. Summary of Background Data. The impact of preexisting depressive symptoms on health-care related quality of life (HRQOL) outcomes following lumbar spine fusion is not well understood. Methods. Patients undergoing lumbar fusion between one to three levels at a single center, academic hospital were retrospectively identified. Patients under the age of 18 years and those undergoing surgery for infection, trauma, tumor, or revision, and less than 1-ye...
Conclusion. The spontaneous incidence rate of vertebral body infection among OVF patients was 0.7%; however, the occurrence of this complication led to serious events. Clinicians should pay attention to the possibility of bacillemia in elderly or immunocompromised OVF patients. Level of Evidence: 4
Conclusion. Although intent-to-treat analysis failed to show significant differences in patients treated surgically, results of the as-treated analysis determined statically greater improvements in those patients with spondylolisthesis who were treated surgically as compared to those treated nonoperatively. Level of Evidence: 2
Conclusion. In lumbar fusion, rhBMP-2 exhibited a higher fusion success rate and reduced the risk of re-operation. No difference in complication rate is between rhBMP (rhBMP-2 and rhBMP-7) and ICBG. We suggest rhBMP especially rhBMP-2 as an effective substitute for ICBG for lumbar fusion. Level of Evidence: 1
