Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping for Staging Acute Cerebral Hemorrhages: Comparing the Conventional and Multiecho Complex Total Field Inversion magnetic resonance imaging MR Methods.

J Magn Reson Imaging 2021 Jun 11. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Department of Radiology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Background: The perceived acuity of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) impacts the management of patients, both within emergent and outpatient/urgent settings. Morphology enabled dipole inversion (MEDI) quantitative susceptibility imaging (QSM) has improved characterization of ICH acuity, despite outstanding limitations in distinguishing blood products.

Purpose/hypothesis: Using improved susceptibility quantification, novel postprocessing QSM method from multiecho complex total field inversion (mcTFI) may better discriminate between acute and subacute ICH, compared to MEDI. Read More

A Multicenter Preliminary Study of Cangrelor following Thrombectomy Failure for Refractory Proximal Intracranial Occlusions.

AJNR Am J Neuroradiol 2021 Jun 11. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Neurology (I.S.), Bordeaux University Hospital, Bordeaux, France.

Background And Purpose: Rescue endovascular and pharmacologic approaches are increasingly being adopted after recanalization failure of acute large-vessel occlusion strokes with mechanical thrombectomy, with encouraging results. The safety and efficacy of glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors in ischemic stroke have been investigated, though cangrelor, a recent intravenous P2Y12-receptor inhibitor with a rapid onset/offset of action and a short half-life, may be a valuable option. We compared the safety and efficacy of cangrelor with those of glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors for refractory occlusions. Read More

Radiosurgery as a microsurgical adjunct: outcomes after microsurgical resection of intracranial arteriovenous malformations previously treated with stereotactic radiosurgery.

J Neurosurg 2021 Jun 11:1-12. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

1Department of Neurosurgery and Stanford Stroke Center, Stanford University Medical Center, Stanford.

Objective: Microsurgical resection of arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) can be aided by staged treatment consisting of stereotactic radiosurgery followed by resection in a delayed fashion. This approach is particularly useful for high Spetzler-Martin (SM) grade lesions because radiosurgery can reduce flow through the AVM, downgrade the SM rating, and induce histopathological changes that additively render the AVM more manageable for resection. The authors present their 28-year experience in managing AVMs with adjunctive radiosurgery followed by resection. Read More

Department of Neurosurgery, First Affiliated Hospital of Guangxi Medical University, Nanning, China.

Anterior inferior cerebellar artery (AICA) aneurysms are relatively rare in clinical practice, accounting for <1% of all intracranial arteries. After the diagnosis and location are confirmed by angiography, magnetic resonance, and other imaging examinations, interventional, or surgical treatment is often used, but some complex aneurysms require reconstructive surgery. An 8-year-old male child was admitted to the hospital due to sudden disturbance of consciousness for 2 weeks. Read More

Transvenous Pressure Monitoring Guides Endovascular Treatment of Vein of Galen Malformation: A Technical Note.

Pediatr Neurosurg 2021 Jun 9:1-6. Epub 2021 Jun 9.

Department of Neurosurgery, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, California, USA.

Introduction: Vein of Galen malformations (VGMs) are complex congenital arteriovenous malformations that generally require serial endovascular treatment sessions to slowly correct the high-flow fistulous connections that cause increased venous pressures and ultimately lead to the classic presentations of heart failure, hydrocephalus, and intracranial hemorrhages. Despite the advances in endovascular technology and embolic materials, the resolution of embolization is often limited to the subjective view of diminished flow on angiograms.

Case Report: An 8-month-old patient with a VGM developed clinical signs of heart failure and growing head circumference with ventriculomegaly. Read More

Anticoagulation Protocol for Secondary Prevention of Acute Ischemic Stroke Associated with Nonvalvular Atrial Fibrillation.

J Stroke Cerebrovasc Dis 2021 Jun 6;30(8):105893. Epub 2021 Jun 6.

Department of Stroke Medicine and Neurosurgery, Nayoro General Hospital, Nayoro City, Japan.

Objectives: There is no clear evidence regarding when to initiate oral anticoagulants (OACs) for secondary prevention of recurrent stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a novel OAC initiation protocol for secondary prevention of acute ischemic stroke associated with AF.

Materials And Methods: In this multicenter prospective study 597 consecutive Japanese patients with acute ischemic stroke associated with nonvalvular AF received post-stroke OACs according to a protocol based on severity (clinical (NIHSS) and radiological (ASPECTS + W)), rt-PA use, reperfusion, and hemorrhagic transformation (HT).

Decreased Basal Ganglia Volume in Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy.

J Stroke 2021 May 31;23(2):223-233. Epub 2021 May 31.

Department of Neurology, J.P. Kistler Stroke Research Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

Background And Purpose: Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is a common pathology of the leptomeningeal and cortical small vessels associated with hemorrhagic and non-hemorrhagic brain injury. Given previous evidence for CAA-related loss of cortical thickness and white matter volume, we hypothesized that CAA might also cause tissue loss in the basal ganglia.

Methods: We compared basal ganglia volumes expressed as a percentage of total intracranial volume (pBGV) of non-demented patients with sporadic and hereditary CAA to age-matched healthy control (HC) and Alzheimer's disease (AD) cohorts. Read More

Role of Blood Lipid Levels and Lipid-Lowering Therapy in Stroke Patients with Different Levels of Cerebral Artery Diseases: Reconsidering Recent Stroke Guidelines.

Jong S Kim

J Stroke 2021 May 31;23(2):149-161. Epub 2021 May 31.

Department of Neurology, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Hyperlipidemia is an important risk factor for ischemic stroke; the Stroke Prevention by Aggressive Reduction in Cholesterol Level and Treat Stroke to Target studies have shown that statins are beneficial for patients with stroke and that a low target for low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) concentration may maximize this benefit. Based on these results, recent guidelines have emphasized the application of "high-intensity statins" and "low LDL-C target" strategies in patients with stroke. However, it should be kept in mind that the role of blood lipids as a risk factor and benefit of lipid-lowering therapy are different among patients with different levels of cerebral arterial diseases.

Ocular Trauma with Ophthalmic Artery Injury as a Rare Cause of Subarachnoid Hemorrhage: a Case Report and Review of the Literature.

J Neurol Surg A Cent Eur Neurosurg 2021 Jun 7. Epub 2021 Jun 7.

Department of Neurosurgery, Universitätsklinikum Aachen, RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany.

Background And Importance:  Traumatic avulsion of the ophthalmic artery is a rare cause of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). In this case, a relative minor fall with isolated ocular trauma caused bulbar dislocation and rupture of the ophthalmic artery in its intracranial segment resulting in subarachnoid bleeding.

Clinical Presentation:  In a female patient in her 70s, a direct penetrating trauma to the orbit by a door handle resulted in basal SAH with blood dispersion into both Sylvian fissures. Read More

Low-dose thrombolysis for submassive pulmonary embolism.

J Investig Med 2021 Jun 7. Epub 2021 Jun 7.

Pulmonary Medicine, Ondokuz Mayis University Faculty of Medicine, Samsun, Turkey.

The role of thrombolysis in submassive pulmonary embolism (PE) is controversial due to the high risk of hemorrhage. This study aimed to evaluate the role of half-dose tissue-type plasminogen activator (rt-PA) in preventing death/hemodynamic decompensation in submassive (intermediate-risk) PE without increasing the risk of bleeding. In a prospective, non-randomized, open-label, single-center trial, we compared 50 mg rt-PA plus low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) with LMWH in submassive (intermediate-risk) PE. Read More
