What Causes Anisocoria?
Discussion Anisocoria is a common physical finding caused by the mechanical imbalance of the iris dilator (sympathetic innervation causing dilation) and sphincter muscles (parasympathetic innervation causes miosis). Which pupil is abnormal is important to determine. “Anisocoria greater in the light signifies an abnormal large pupil, whereas anisocoria in the dark indicates an abnormal small pupil.” The pupillary size should be noted along with any changes with accommodation, extra ocular movements and lighting. The time it takes to revert to the baseline pupillary size can also be helpful. Any ptosis, lacrimati...

Cardio-cerebrovascular disease history complicates hematopoietic cell transplant outcomes
(Cactus Communications) Transplanting hematopoietic stem cells to treat cancers and other conditions carries with it the risk of developing cardio-cerebrovascular diseases (CCVD)--disorders affecting the blood vessels of the heart and brain. Although research on post-transplant CCVD is extensive, there is paucity of knowledge on the effects of pre-transplant CCVD on transplant outcomes. Now researchers in China suggest pre-transplant CCVD indirectly affects patient mortality and survival following transplant through their strong association with post-transplant CCVD.
