Three tesla magnetic resonance angiography with ultrashort echo time describes the arteries near the cerebral aneurysm with clip and the peripheral cerebral arteries.

Conclusion: 3.0T UTE-MRA may be helpful for the usual assessment of the arteries after clipping and cerebral vasospasm in the future. PMID: 32874727 [PubMed]

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.

ConclusionTraumatic dACA aneurysm is a rare complication of brain trauma. Delayed intracranial haemorrhage and the sudden deterioration of neurologic function were the typical characteristics in patients with traumatic dACA aneurysm. CTA is the first-line screening modality for patients who present with intracerebral haemorrhage in the corpus callosum after trauma, particularly for patients who are older, in a poorer or critical condition. When the aneurysm is located in the A4 segment or involves a small branch, surgical trapping is the preferred definitive therapy to prevent further growth and disastrous bleeding. Early ...

CONCLUSION: Despite the high risk of aneurysmal rebleeding within a few hours after SAH, emergency cerebral angiography after SAH can be acceptable without increasing the risk of intra-angiographic rebleeding when using current angiographic techniques and equipment. PMID: 31484228 [PubMed]

CONCLUSION: LDS is characterized by genetic and clinical variability. Our report suggests that this genetically-determined connective tissue disorder is probably underestimated, as it might firstly show up with cerebrovascular events, although mild systemic manifestations. These findings could lead to identify people at risk of severe vascular complications (i.e., through genetic consult on asymptomatic relatives), in order to perform adequate vascular assessments and follow-up to prevent complications such as stroke.

S Sanju, MS Tullu, S Karande, MN Muranjan, P ParekhJournal of Postgraduate Medicine 2019 65(3):171-176 Intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) is rarely seen in patients with thalassemia. A seven-year-old male, known case of beta-thalassemia major, on irregular packed cell transfusions (elsewhere) and non-compliant with chelation therapy, presented with congestive cardiac failure (Hb-3 gm/dl). He received three packed red cell transfusions over 7 days (cumulative volume 40 cc/kg). On the 9th day, he developed projectile vomiting and two episodes of generalized tonic-clonic convulsions with altered sensorium. He had exaggerated deep...
