Rivaroxaban in cervical and "cervico-cerebral" artery dissections: a new therapeutic option?

Neurol Sci 2019 Apr 12. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

Department of Medicine, Maggiore Hospital, Bologna, BO, Italy.

Antiplatelet agents and vitamin K antagonists (VKA) are usually used in the treatment of cervical (carotid or vertebral) artery dissections (CADs); however, data about the use of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) in these conditions are very limited. DOACs have proven to be effective in stroke reduction in non-valvular atrial fibrillation and, when possible, they are preferred to warfarin because of their better safety profile. We describe four cases of CADs and, firstly in literature, cervico-cerebral (CCADs) in young patients (average age of 42 years) treated with rivaroxaban 20 mg daily. Read More

Surgical Treatment of Posterior Communicating Artery Aneurysms: Hints and Precautions for Young Cerebrovascular Surgeons.

J Neurol Surg A Cent Eur Neurosurg 2019 May 26;80(3):205-212. Epub 2019 Mar 26.

Institute of Neurosurgery, Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli IRCCS, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Rome, Italy.

Background:  In spite of the advent of neurointerventional treatment, different clinical and anatomical features are still strong indications for clipping of posterior communicating artery (PComA) aneurysms. But the experience of young neurosurgeons is increasingly limited, and therefore providing technical operative guidelines is a fundamental prerequisite to achieve the best aneurysm exclusion and avoid perioperative complications.

Study Objective:  We describe a technical algorithm we use to teach young neurosurgeons how to approach carotid aneurysms that may help them develop a procedural memory and thus perform an efficient and safe surgery. Read More

Leading symptoms in cerebrovascular diseases: what about headache?

Neurol Sci 2019 Mar 20. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

Department of Neuroscience, Neurology and Stroke Unit, ASST GOM Niguarda Cà Granda Hospital, Piazza Ospedale Maggiore 3, 20162, Milan, Italy.

Headache is a milestone in cerebrovascular disorders; indeed, it may represent the only symptom at onset or predominates over the other neurological features. Unfortunately, headache associated with cerebrovascular diseases lacks clear-cut characteristics as it may resemble a migraine attack, tension-type headache, or cluster headache; pain localization is also misleading along with drug (analgesic) response. However, in this review, we have analyzed and described the most common patterns of headache for different vascular disorders: it is known that headache due to subarachnoid aneurysmal hemorrhage presents peculiar characteristics (thunderclap, acute presentation, and high intensity), whereas in cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome, the short duration and the relapsing-remitting course of the thunderclap headache are key points for the diagnosis; in cervicocerebral artery, dissection pain is most commonly ipsilateral to the dissected vessel and is mainly perceived in the temporal area in case of carotid artery dissection and in the occipital area in case of vertebral artery dissection; in cerebral venous thrombosis, pain is often acute or subacute and severe; unfortunately, it may resemble a typical migraine attack or a tension-type episode; by the contrary, in primary angiitis of the central nervous system, pain is always subacute or chronic with mild-to-moderate intensity; finally, in brain arteriovenous shunts such as malformation or fistula, pain is more frequently a clue for disease complication such as hemorrhage from the malformation or thrombosis of the draining vein.

Two cases of pulsatile tinnitus: Key points for the clinician.

Eur Ann Otorhinolaryngol Head Neck Dis 2019 Mar 11. Epub 2019 Mar 11.

ENT department, CHU Saint-Pierre, 322, rue Haute, 1000 Bruxelles, Belgium.

Introduction: Pulsatile tinnitus is a sound generated by an acoustic source from within the body, which is perceived by the auditory system of the patient.

Cases Summary: We report two puzzling cases of pulsatile tinnitus with normal ENT examinations: the first was due to a cervical internal carotid artery dissection, and the second to the compression of the foramina of Monro by a craniopharyngioma, leading to hydrocephalus.

Discussion: We review the systematic management and emphasize the decisive role of the ENT clinician regarding this pulsatile tinnitus complaint, because of the potentially severe complications of its underlying pathology. Read More

Acute Endovascular Treatment of Patients With Ischemic Stroke From Intracranial Large Vessel Occlusion and Extracranial Carotid Dissection.

Front Neurol 2019 19;10:102. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Department of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, Erasmus MC, University Medical Center, Rotterdam, Netherlands.

Carotid artery dissection (CAD) and atherosclerotic carotid artery occlusion (ACAO) are major causes of a tandem occlusion in patients with intracranial large vessel occlusion (LVO). Presence of tandem occlusions may hamper intracranial access and potentially increases the risk of procedural complications of endovascular treatment (EVT). Our aim was to assess neurological, functional and technical outcome and complications of EVT for intracranial LVO in patients with CAD in comparison to patients with ACAO and to patients without CAD or ACAO.

Aortic Dissection Repair Using the STABILISE Technique Associated with Arch Procedures: Report of Two Cases.

EJVES Short Rep 2019 13;42:26-30. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Vascular Surgery Department, Heart and Vessels Division, Hospital de Santa Maria (CHLN), Lisbon, Portugal.

Introduction: The stent assisted balloon induced intimal disruption and relamination in aortic dissection repair (STABILISE) technique is being increasingly used for the treatment of complicated aortic dissections. However, as it is a fairly recent technique, the scientific information is limited.

Report: In this paper we report two cases of the STABILISE technique associated with procedures in the ascending aorta and supra-aortic trunks, consisting of a "frozen elephant trunk" procedure in one case and in the other, a carotid endarterectomy associated with reimplantation of the vertebral artery and partial arch debranching.

The Fascial Layers Attached to the Skull Base: A Cadaveric Study.

World Neurosurg 2019 Feb 28. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Graduate School of Medical Sciences, Kyushu Medical Center, Fukuoka, Japan.

Objective: A profound understanding of the relationship between the deep cervical fasciae and the skull base is essential for skull base surgery. To our knowledge, there has been little research on the relationship between the deep cervical fasciae and inferior surface of the skull base; thus, this study aims to examine the fascial network of the skull base.

Methods: Two cadaveric heads are dissected to reveal the fascial network of the skull base and 19 sides of cadaveric heads were used to reveal an anatomical variant of the pterygospinous and pterygoalar ligaments/muscles. Read More

Incidence, classification, and treatment of angiographically occult intracranial aneurysms found during microsurgical aneurysm clipping of known aneurysms.

J Neurosurg 2019 Feb 22:1-8. Epub 2019 Feb 22.

OBJECTIVEDuring the microsurgical clipping of known aneurysms, angiographically occult (AO) aneurysms are sometimes found and treated simultaneously to prevent their growth and protect the patient from future rupture or reoperation. The authors analyzed the incidence, treatment, and outcomes associated with AO aneurysms to determine whether limited surgical exploration around the known aneurysm was safe and justified given the known limitations of diagnostic angiography.METHODSAn AO aneurysm was defined as a saccular aneurysm detected using the operative microscope during dissection of a known aneurysm, and not detected on preoperative catheter angiography.

Late-Onset Paraplegia After Endovascular Repair of Type B Aortic Dissection Managed by Urgent Left Subclavian Artery Revascularization: A Case Report.

Ann Vasc Surg 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Department of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, "San Giovanni-Addolorata Hospital", Rome, RM, Italy.

Spinal cord ischemia is one of the most unpredictable and feared complications after open surgical or endovascular thoracic aortic repair. Protection of collateral network branches that contribute blood supply to spinal cord is fundamental in the prevention of this catastrophic condition. We report the case of a patient who underwent emergent endovascular treatment for a type B aortic dissection complicated by rupture of the false lumen, with intentional coverage of the left subclavian artery without revascularization.

Centre hospitalier intercommunal, chirurgie maxillo-faciale, Villeneuve Saint Georges 94195, France; CHU Bouaké, Bouaké, Cote d'Ivoire.

Vascular variations are common. A cervicofacial anatomical dissection carried out at the anatomy laboratory allowed us to document a rare vascular variation. The facial artery did not give rise to branches that led to the submandibular gland; an artery arising directly from the external carotid artery vascularized the submandibular gland and gave rise to the ascending palatine artery that led to the maxilla.

Ann Vasc Surg 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Department of Vascular Surgery, Singapore General Hospital, Singapore; Vascular Service, Sengkang General Hospital, Singapore.

Background: Endovascular aneurysm sealing (EVAS) was developed with the intention of expanding the anatomical limitations of conventional endovascular aneurysm repair devices and decrease rates of reintervention secondary to migration and type II endoleaks in treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms. Since its inception, EVAS has gained much popularity especially for patients with concomitant common iliac aneurysms, with good long-term durability suggested by several studies. Currently, the known complications of EVAS, while considered uncommon, include endoleaks, renal artery, and limb thrombosis. Read More
