Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis presenting with multifocal intracerebral hemorrhage and subarachnoid hemorrhage: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Dec;97(50):e13476

Department of Neurology.

Rationale: Multifocal cerebral hemorrhage refers to the cerebral hemorrhage in 2 or more lesions at the same time or 48 h in the brain caused by various causes, which has an acute onset, high mortality rate, and poor clinical treatment effect. Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is caused by the direct flow of blood into the subarachnoid cavity due to the rupture of the diseased vessels at the base or surface of the brain. Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) affects approximately 5 people per million and accounts for approximately 1% of all stroke events. Read More

Headache in Pregnancy, the Puerperium, and menopause.

Semin Neurol 2018 Dec 6;38(6):627-633. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Department of Neurology, University at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, The State University of New York, Buffalo, New York.

Headache is a neurologic disorder that displays gender dichotomy. It is well established that there is a strong link between migraine headache and sex hormones, specifically estrogen, which influences the severity of migraines during the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, and menopause. Furthermore, the epidemiology of headaches during pregnancy and the postpartum period is very distinct from that in males or nonpregnant females, in part due to the hemodynamic and hematologic changes that occur during pregnancy.

Prevalence and Characteristic Features of Deep Venous Thrombosis in Patients with Severe Motor and Intellectual Disabilities.

Ann Vasc Dis 2018 Sep;11(3):281-285

Department of Surgery, National Hospital Organization Yanai Medical Center, Yanai, Yamaguchi, Japan.

Sudden death associated with patients with severe motor and intellectual disabilities (SMID) have been thought to be caused in part by venous thromboembolism (VTE), but actual situation of VTE in SMID is not clear. We examined the prevalence and location of deep venous thrombosis (DVT), and the relation of the development of crural veins in 16 patients with SMID, using ultrasonography. The maximum diameter of soleal vein was 1. Read More

[Hormonal contraception and vascular risk: CNGOF Contraception Guidelines].

Gynecol Obstet Fertil Senol 2018 Dec 30;46(12):823-833. Epub 2018 Oct 30.

Unité de gynécologie endocrinienne, hôpital Port-Royal, 53, avenue de l'Observatoire, 75679 Paris 14, France; Université Paris Descartes, 75005 Paris, France; Inserm UMR 1153, Obstetrical, Perinatal and Paediatric Epidemiology Research Team (Epopé), Centre for Epidemiology and Statistics Sorbonne Paris Cité (CRESS), 75000 Paris, France.

Venous thromboembolism and arterial ischemic events are the main deleterious diseases associated with the use of combined hormonal contraceptives (CHC). Even though their composition has been substantially improved, the vascular risk persists with the most recent CHCs use. If the vascular risk associated with CHCs containing 50μg EE is significantly higher than with those containing less than 50μg, there is no evidence that the CHCs containing either 30 or 20μg of EE induce different venous risks.

International Comparison of Patient Characteristics and Quality of Care for Ischemic Stroke: Analysis of the China National Stroke Registry and the American Heart Association Get With The Guidelines--Stroke Program.

J Am Heart Assoc 2018 Oct;7(20):e010623

1 Department of Neurology Duke University Medical Center Durham NC.

Background Adherence to evidence-based guidelines is an important quality indicator; yet, there is lack of assessment of adherence to performance measures in acute ischemic stroke for most world regions. Methods and Results We analyzed 19 604 patients with acute ischemic stroke in the China National Stroke Registry and 194 876 patients in the Get With The Guidelines--Stroke registry in the United States from June 2012 to January 2013. Compared with their US counterparts, Chinese patients were younger, had a lower prevalence of comorbidities, and had similar median, lower mean, and less variability in National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (median 4 [25th percentile-75th percentile, 2-7], mean 5.
