Angiography and transcatheter arterial embolization for non-variceal gastrointestinal bleeding.

CONCLUSIONS: The causes of NVGIB are complex and the onset, location, risk, and clinical presentations are variable. NVGIB can be generally divided into three types: vascular abnormality, neoplastic disease, and iatrogenic condition. TAE is a safe, effective, and fast procedure in the management of gastrointestinal bleeding. PMID: 32650690 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In this study, 5% of VF arrest was due to PE: V fib is initial rhythm in PE in 3 of 60 cases. On the other hand, if the presenting rhythm is PEA, then pulmonary embolism is likely.  When there is VF in PE, it is not the initial rhythm, but occurs after prolonged PEA renders the myocardium ischemic.--Another study by Courtney and Kline found that, of cases of arrest that had autopsy and found that a presenting rhythm of VF/VT had an odds ratio of 0.02 for massive pulmonary embolism as the etiology, vs 41.9 for PEA.    ===================================MY Comment by KEN ...

Authors: Zhu J, Yin L, Che Y, Liu Z, Qi X, Zhou K, Zheng B, Pan E, Chen J Abstract Giant intracranial aneurysms, especially giant aneurysms of the distal posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA), remain the most difficult and challenging cerebrovascular lesions for neurosurgeons to treat. The morbidity and mortality rates of microsurgical clipping are relatively high, and endovascular embolization is also associated with many complications. In the present report, the case of a 46-year-old female patient who presented with headache and dizziness for 3 years, which was aggravated and combined with limb weakness fo...

This post was originally written in 2013. A middle-aged man with STEMI  came to our CCU.  It is just another case of STEMI and asked my fellow to lyse. But it was not the case . He, told me, Sir, the patient had a syncope following chest pain and he has injured his face and Jaw. He was actively bleeding. When I saw this face, it was indeed  frightening. What shall we do ? When a patient  with STEMI presents with bleeding facial Injury Rush for Immediate PCI (Which was  of course not possible in our place as it happened out of office hours! ) Take that ultimate risk and thrombolysis Give only hepa...

Conclusions: Imaging is proving itself critical in assessing frostbite injuries and guiding invasive and noninvasive care. While angiography is historically a gold standard, multiphase MDP imaging is readily available and a noninvasive modality which can aid prognostication.

CONCLUSION: The absence of vasospasm in the first DSA performed in patients with SAH and negative tomographic angiography could be a useful criterion for establishing an optimal follow-up protocol in these patients, without exposing them to unnecessary risks and radiation.

ConclusionBoth PV ‐CT and DB‐CT demonstrate high sensitivity in the diagnosis of any active bleeding though identification of specifically arterial bleeding is lower for both scanning methods. Nevertheless, inter‐observer reliability for the identification of arterial bleeding is higher for DB‐CT. Multi‐pha se arterial and venous CT may yield better results and could be a focus for future studies.

Rationale: The capsular warning syndrome (CWS) is a rare and special type of transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) syndrome. The pathophysiology of CWS is very complicate, and intracranial atherosclerotic stenosis (ICAS) is rare cause. Moreover, the effective and standard therapy has not yet been established. Patient concerns: A 47-year-old man experienced repeated and exacerbated TIAs of right hemiparesis and dysarthria. Fourteen hours after the first episode of TIAs, he developed more severe right hemiparesis and dysarthria, the National Institute of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) score was 12 points, and did not recover i...
