AbstractBackgroundDespite the tremendous impact of swallowing disorders on outcome following ischemic stroke, little is known about the incidence of dysphagia after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and its contribution to hospital complications, length of intensive care unit stay, and functional outcome.MethodsThis is a retrospective analysis of an ongoing prospective cohort study. Swallowing ability was assessed in consecutive non-traumatic SAH patients admitted to our neurological intensive care unit using the Bogenhausen Dysphagia Score (BODS). A BODS  >  2 points indicated dysphagia. Functional outcome wa...

CONCLUSIONS: Transferred patients with subarachnoid haemorrhage had lower survival rates. Septic shock and hypernatraemia were important complications among critically ill patients with subarachnoid haemorrhage and were associated increased mortality.

Abstract Bloodletting has been called William Osler's "blind spot," especially with respect to pneumonia. Also puzzling has been his endorsement of bleeding in selected cases of heatstroke. Recent clinical observations on pneumonia and, to a lesser extent, heatstroke lend support to Osler's rationale for bloodletting in these conditions. A 21st-century rationale now exists for all eight indications for systemic bloodletting listed by Osler in the first edition of his textbook, The Principles and Practice of Medicine (1892): treatment of acute heart failure (seven of the eight indications) or rapid loweri...

CONCLUSIONSWhile an extended ICU admission allows closer monitoring, low-grade aSAH patients develop HACs despite being at low risk for neurological complications. The characteristics of low-grade aSAH patients who would benefit from early discharge are reported in detail. PMID: 31051460 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions This review describes how leukocyte-heparanase can be a double-edged sword in tumor progression; it can enhance tumor immune surveillance and tumor cell clearance, but also promote tumor survival and growth. We also discuss the potential of using heparanase in leukocyte therapies against tumors, and the effects of heparanase inhibitors on tumor progression and immunity. We are just beginning to understand the influence of heparanase on a pro/anti-tumor immune response, and there are still many questions to answer. How do the pro/anti-tumorigenic effects of heparanase differ across different cancer types? Does...

llmar R Abstract Targeted temperature management (TTM) might improve outcome of patients with severe subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) in which vasospasm, delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI), and increased intracranial pressure (ICP) are frequent and severe complications. A series of patients (n = 3) with severe aneurysmatic SAH were treated by TTM if they developed ICP crisis and/or severe vasospasm diagnosed by angiography. Once these complications were detected, body core temperature (BCT) was rapidly decreased to 35°C or 33°C, if necessary. BCT induced and maintained by surface cooling remained a...

, Gerner ST Abstract OBJECTIVEStroke-associated immunosuppression and inflammation are increasingly recognized as factors triggering infections and thus potentially influencing outcome after stroke. Several studies have demonstrated that elevated neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a significant predictor of adverse outcomes for patients with ischemic stroke or intracerebral hemorrhage. Thus far, in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage the association between NLR and outcome is insufficiently established. The authors sought to investigate the association between NLR on admission and functional outcome in aneu...

CONCLUSIONSThis study identified patient risk factors associated with increased likelihood of tracheostomy and PEG in patients with hemorrhagic stroke who were critically ill. Additionally, we found that the timing of tracheostomy was associated with length of ICU stay and overall hospital stay, and that the timing of PEG was associated with overall length of hospitalization. Complication rates related to tracheostomy and PEG in this population were minimal. This retrospective data set supports some benefit to earlier tracheostomy and PEG placement in this population and justifies the need for further prospective study. ...
