Featured Review: Antenatal corticosteroids for accelerating fetal lung maturation in women at risk of preterm birth
The Cochrane review aboutantenatal steroids in reducing risk of infant mortality and morbidity is animportant one inCochrane's history. Cochrane's logo is based on the forest plot from the original  publication in 1982. This review has recently been updated and lead author, Fiona Stewart, tells us how the logo might look now, base on the current data.What does this update tell us?  Our overall findings can be summed up like this: antenatal steroids given to women at risk of preterm birth reduce the risk of infant mortality and morbidity. In other words, babies are more likely to survive and less likely to ha...

Seventeen genetic abnormalities that cause brain aneurysms
(Universit é de Gen è ve) Intracranial aneurysm is a dilation of a blood vessel forming a fragile pocket. Rupture results in extremely severe haemorrhage. In the framework of the International Stroke Genetics Consortium, a team led by the University of Geneva, the University Hospitals of Geneva and the University of Utrecht has examinated the genome of more than 10,000 people suffering from aneurysms. 17 genetic abnormalities have been identified, notably involved in the functioning of the vascular endothelium.

Technology and treatment in the field of stroke care: Dayton experts weigh in
When treating life-threatening medical conditions like stroke, time is of the essence. Rapid advances in technology could help. Stroke, the fifth-leading cause of death and one of the leading causes of disability in the U.S., occurs when blood flow to an area of the brain is interrupted, due to either a clot (ischemic) or a broken blood vessel (hemorrhagic). Symptoms are sudden-onset, and the longer blood flow is interrupt ed, the greater the damage. That's why every minute counts.
