A review of carotid and vertebral artery dissection.

Br J Hosp Med (Lond) 2022 Apr 23;83(4):1-11. Epub 2022 Apr 23.

Department of Stroke Medicine, University Hospital Crosshouse, Kilmarnock, UK.

Cervical artery dissection is a major cause of ischaemic stroke in young adults. The diagnosis can be challenging as some patients may present with seemingly benign symptoms such as a headache, neck pain or dizziness. However, the neurological sequelae of a transient ischaemic attack, vision loss or ischaemic stroke are potentially devastating. Read More

Evidence of Thrombogenesis Recurrence Induced by IgA Antiphospholipid Antibody β2 Glycoprotein I-Dependent in Early Adulthood.

Cureus 2022 Mar 27;14(3):e23535. Epub 2022 Mar 27.

Department of Internal Medicine, Saint Joseph Mercy Oakland Hospital, Pontiac, USA.

Antiphospholipid antibodies (aPLs) against Beta-2 glycoprotein-I (βGPI) are considered to be the center of pathogenesis of antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). Autoimmune aPLs are pathogenic as patients are at increased risk of enhancing thrombin generation at a young age. There are only three aPLs considered as diagnostic laboratory markers for APS - IgM, IgG, and IgA isotypes. Read More

Department of Surgery, Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, Park Ridge, IL.

Understanding and recognizing anatomic anomalies of the aortic arch is important when planning extra-anatomic debranching before thoracic endovascular aortic repair. A rare anomaly is the left vertebral artery aberrantly arising from the aortic arch; found in ∼5% of adults. When present, the artery courses through the carotid sheath at a variable length before entering the third or fourth cervical transverse foramen. Read More

Concurrent subarachnoid haemorrhage and internal carotid artery dissection: a transcranial colour-coded sonography diagnosis.

J Ultrasound 2022 Apr 28. Epub 2022 Apr 28.

Stroke Unit, Department of Emergency and Transplantation, Azienda Ospedaliera Universitaria Senese, Policlinico "Santa Maria Alle Scotte", Viale Mario Bracci, 16, 53100, Siena, Italy.

We report the case of a young woman affected by an aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) and numerous anatomic abnormalities. A Transcranial Colour-Coded Duplex Sonography, performed with the aim of monitoring the vasospasm, showed a non-pulsatile flow with loss of sharp systolic peak and lowering of mean flow velocities in the right extracranial Internal Carotid Artery (ICA) and all its intra-cranial branches. This event suggested a possible concomitant acute right ICA sub-occlusion with a lack of collateral circulation. Read More

Dissective tandem stroke: an endovascular approach.

Radiol Case Rep 2022 Jun 15;17(6):2170-2174. Epub 2022 Apr 15.

Department of Advanced Biomedical Sciences, Neuroradiology Unit, University "Federico II", Naples, Italy.

Ischemic stroke due to internal carotid artery occlusion is a potential devastating condition. More frequently the occlusions are embolic in nature, but sometimes they are caused by arterial dissection and their treatment is a challenge. We describe an illustrative case where a young patient with middle cerebral artery stroke caused by carotid artery dissection was submitted to endovascular treatment of mechanical thrombectomy and stenting, giving an excellent outcome.

Cervical arterial dissection and traumatic myelopathy following yoga: surgical case report.

Spinal Cord Ser Cases 2022 04 27;8(1):46. Epub 2022 Apr 27.

Department of Neurological Surgery, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

Introduction: Cervical spondylosis can predispose patients to central canal stenosis. In this setting, myelopathy through further flattening of the cord from extrinsic compression can be precipitated by relatively minor traumas. Arterial dissection is similarly considered a result of high velocity or momentum during trauma, commonly associated with fractures, cervical hyperflexion, or direct blunt force to the neck.

External Carotid Artery-Related Adverse Events at Extra-Intra Cranial High Flow Bypass Surgery Using a Radial Artery Graft.

World Neurosurg 2022 Apr 22. Epub 2022 Apr 22.

Department of Neurological Surgery, Nippon Medical School Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

Objective: Placing an extracranial-intracranial (EC-IC) high-flow bypass using a radial artery (RA) graft plus internal carotid artery (ICA) trapping or ligation is an option for treating patients expected to be at high risk for complications by direct surgical treatment of the ICA. We focused on the anastomosis between the external carotid artery (ECA) and the RA graft in the cervical region and present adverse events and salvage procedures.

Methods: EC-IC high-flow bypass procedures using an RA graft were performed to treat 87 consecutive patients. Read More

Alien Limb Phenomenon After Diffuse Corpus Callosum Ischemic Stroke.

Neurohospitalist 2022 Apr 21;12(2):295-300. Epub 2022 Feb 21.

Department of Neuromedicine, Bangur Institute of Neurosciences, Institute of Post Graduate Medical Education and Research & SSKM Hospital, Kolkata, West Bengal, India.

The alien limb is a phenomenon characterized by a cluster of clinical features wherein the limb behaves autonomously and as separated from a person's identity. We herein report a 36-year-old Indian female with multiple comorbidities who presented with recurrent episodes of limb-shaking transient ischemic attacks for 1 year, followed by left-sided hemiplegia. During recovering, the patient noticed a feeling that as if her left hand did not belong to herself and acted autonomously (alien limb phenomenon) along with visuospatial deficits. Read More

Neck dissection with carotid artery resection after insertion of a protective endovascular covered stent for recurrent head and neck cancer: a case report.

Int Cancer Conf J 2022 Apr 1;11(2):119-123. Epub 2022 Feb 1.

Department of Head and Neck Surgery, Miyagi Cancer Center, 47-1 Nodayama, Medeshima-Shiode, Natori, Miyagi 981-1293 Japan.

Head and neck cancer involving the carotid artery is usually unresectable. Such involvement often leads to exposure of the carotid artery and the risk of its blow-out. Carotid covered stent placement may be effective in preventing carotid blow-out; however, thus far, there are few published reports of this procedure. Read More
