Thromboelastography (TEG) provides a rapid assessment of the hemostatic processes of a patient in emergency settings. There are limited data on TEG as a predictive tool for hemorrhagic transformation in patients with acute ischemic stroke. We investigated whether TEG values on admission could predict hemorrhagic transformation in patients with acute ischemic stroke.

Conclusions: In the population who underwent postmortem neuropathologic evaluation, 68% of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation nonsurvivors developed acute brain injury. Hypoxic-ischemic brain injury was the most common type of injury suggesting that patients sustained acute brain injury as a consequence of cardiogenic shock and cardiac arrest. Further research with a systematic neurologic monitoring is necessary to define the timing of acute brain injury in patients with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.

Conclusions: Encephalopathy severity and adrenergic agonist medication exposure were the primary factors contributing to abnormal melatonin rhythms. Improvements in encephalopathy and medical stabilization did not rapidly normalize rhythms. Urinary 6-sulphatoxymelatonin is not a reliable measure of the central circadian rhythm in critically ill patients.

Conclusions: Critically ill patients rapidly enter a state of behavioral quiescence proportionate to their illness severity with concomitant disturbance of circadian and ultradian rest-activity rhythms and loss of phase coherence with the melatonin rhythm. Quiescence characteristics in rest-activity rhythms were not different in patients with and without delirium, suggesting them to be distinct phenomena. Animal models of severe physiologic stress have shown that specific neural pathway separate from the sleep-wake regulatory pathway induce behavioral quiescence and rest-activity arrhythmia, and facilitate recovery of ce...

CONCLUSIONS: In patients with kidney failure and nonvalvular atrial fibrillation, treatment with apixaban was not associated with a lower incidence of new stroke, transient ischemic attack, or systemic thromboembolism but was associated with a higher incidence of fatal or intracranial bleeding.

We describe the epidemiology of early and late seizures following TBI, the significance of intracranial haemorrhage of different types in the risk of later epilepsy and the gaps in current understanding of risk factors contributing to the risk of post-traumatic epilepsy (PTE). The delay from injury to epilepsy presents an opportunity to understand the mechanisms underlying changes in the brain and how they may reveal potential targets for anti-epileptogenic therapy. We review existing treatments, both medical and surgical and conclude that current research is not tailored to differentiate between PTE and other forms of foc...
