How do i manage cerebral vasospasm and delayed cerebral ischemia? Minerva Anestesiol. 2020 May 21;: Authors: Gaspard N Abstract Delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) is the leading cause of mortality and disability in patients who survived the initial bleed of subarachnoid hemorrhage. Currently available guidelines are based on expert opinions derived from small observational studies due to the lack of randomized controlled trials. In this review, we will review some of the available literature and describe our local protocols for prophylaxis, risk stratification, monitoring in patients at risk, including multimodal invasive monitoring, and interventions measures in patients with DCI. These protocols are largely in line with the current guidelines but are deemed to evolve as ongoing and future trials provide stronger evidence to support interventions.

Aim: To identify predisposing factors for thromboembolic complications, as well as to determine whether thromboembolism has an impact on clinical outcome. Material and methods: From February 2008 to March 2015, 273 consecutive patients were treated at our institution via endovascular coil embolization. Patient medical records were reviewed with an emphasis on procedure description, potential risk factors and clini...

Authors: Susmitha K, Chandrasekhar V, Kiran G, Divya A, Rani GS, Sarangapani M Abstract Stroke is becoming a main cause of early death and disability in developing countries like India, and it is mostly enhanced by increased predominance of major risk factors. A detailed knowledge about the nature and magnitude of the stroke cases in this particular area is not only important for acute treatment but also it helps to prevent hospital admissions due to reoccurring stroke. The present study was conducted in the Department of Stroke at MGM Hospital, Warangal, India, to study the patterns of stroke admissions. All the c...

Authors: Gattellari M, Goumas C, Jalaludin B, Worthington JM Abstract OBJECTIVES: Epidemiological trends for major causes of death and disability, such as stroke, may be monitored using administrative data to guide public health initiatives and service delivery. METHODS: We calculated admissions rates for ischaemic stroke, intracerebral haemorrhage and subarachnoid haemorrhage between 1 January 2005 and December 31st, 2013 and rates of 30-day mortality and 365-day mortality in 30-day survivors to 31 December 2014 for patients aged 15 years or older from New South Wales, Australia. Annual Average Percentage...

Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is devastating disease with high mortality, high disability rate, and poor clinical prognosis. It has drawn great attentions in both basic and clinical medicine. Therefore, it is necessary to explore the therapeutic drugs and effective targets for early prediction of SAH. Firstly, we demonstrate that LCN2 can effectively intervene or treat SAH from the perspective of cell signaling pathway. Next, three potential genes that we explored have been validated by manually reviewed experimental evidences. Finally, we turn out that the SAH early ensemble learning predictive model performs better than ...

Abstract Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a severe acute cerebrovascular disease with high rates of disability and death. In recent years, a large number of studies has shown that early brain injury (EBI) may be a crucial cause of the poor prognosis of SAH and that microglia-mediated neuroinflammation is an important pathological process in EBI. Previous studies have indicated that tumor necrosis factor receptor-associated factor 6 (TRAF6) is involved in microglia-mediated neuroinflammation after SAH. In addition, it has been reported that cerebral cavernous malformation 3/mammalian sterile20-like kinase 4 (CCM3/M...

CONCLUSIONS: Generally, combat-related penetrating brain injuries had satisfactory treatment outcomes. Treatment outcomes in this study were comparable to those previously reported by other authors in military populations and significantly better than outcomes of peacetime penetrating brain injury treatment.

ConclusionsThe SPICE multicenter study will investigate 1-year outcomes, ethical issues, as well as care pathways of acute stroke patients requiring invasive ventilation in the ICU. Gathered data will delineate human resources and facilities needs for adequate management. The identification of prognostic factors at the acute phase will help to identify patients who may benefit from prolonged intensive care and rehabilitation.Trial registration: NCT03335995.

Conclusion Prophylactic heparin was associated with a nonsignificant increase in any hematoma enlargement and mortality, a nonsignificant reduction in extracranial hemorrhage, and a nonsignificant increase in the incidence of major disability in patients with sICH. It is probably safe to administer heparin to prevent VTE in patients with sICH.
