BACKGROUND Blunt cerebrovascular injuries (BCVI) can significantly impact morbidity and mortality if undetected and, therefore, untreated. Two diagnostic concepts are standard practice in major trauma management: Application of clinical screening criteria (CSC) does or does not recommend consecutive computed tomography angiography (CTA) of head and neck. In contrast, liberal CTA usage integrates into diagnostic protocols for suspected major trauma. First, this study's objective is to assess diagnostic accuracy of different CSC for BCVI in a population of patients diagnosed with BCVI after the use of liberal CTA. Second, ...

BACKGROUND Patients with blunt cerebrovascular injuries are at risk of thromboembolic stroke. Although primary prevention with antithrombotic therapy is widely used in this setting, its effectiveness is not well defined and requires further investigation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the utility of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)–detected ischemic brain lesions as a possible future outcome for randomized clinical trials in this patient population. METHODS This prospective observational study included 20 adult blunt trauma patients admitted to a level I trauma center with a screening neck CTA showing ex...

The objective of this study is to investigate the use of PET-CT scan with 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) as a method to predict outcomes in patients with Takayasu arteritis (TAK), as well as to analyze associations between 18F-FDG PET-CT findings with disease relapses, sustained remission, new angiographic lesions, ischemic events, and changes in therapy for TAK. At baseline assessment, 36 TAK patients underwent 18F-FDG PET-CT scan and maximal standardized uptake value (SUVmax) in arteries  ≥ 1.3 was predictive for clinical disease activity. Thirty-two TAK patients were then followed-up for a median 83.5...

ConclusionThe positive CT-PA rate varied significantly between seasons. Smoking was a predictor of positive CT-PA results. These findings may assist in developing interventions for improving the utilization of CT-PA scans to avoid unnecessary exposure of patients to radiation.Clinical trial registrationN/A
