Emergency Superficial Temporal Artery-Superior Cerebellar Artery Bypass for the Refractory Vertebrobasilar Insufficiency with Partial Mastoidectomy.

World Neurosurg 2018 Oct 2;118:75-80. Epub 2018 Aug 2.

Department of Neurosurgery, Doutou Neurosurgical Hospital, Kitami, Hokkaido, Japan.

Background: Although it is well-known that vertebrobasilar insufficiency (VBI) because of atherothrombosis with bilateral vertebral artery (VA) occlusion is resistant to medical treatment from the acute to subacute stages, the most appropriate treatment for progressive infarction at these stages remains unclear. Here, we described a patient with VBI who underwent emergency superficial temporal artery-superior cerebellar artery (STA-SCA) bypass under partial mastoidectomy after confirming mismatch between diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) findings and clinical symptoms. The patient showed a good outcome with this approach. Read More

One-year follow-up in patients with brainstem infarction due to large-artery atherothrombosis.

Neuropsychiatr Dis Treat 2015 18;11:379-84. Epub 2015 Feb 18.

Department of Neurology, Bezmialem Vakıf University, Istanbul, Turkey.

Background: Posterior circulation infarction accounts for approximately 25% of the ischemic strokes. A number of different conditions may be associated with the development of brainstem infarction. Prognosis and recurrence rate of brainstem infarction due to large-artery atherothrombosis is still controversial. Read More

Risk factor profile by etiological subtype of ischemic stroke in the young.

Clin Neurol Neurosurg 2014 May 1;120:78-83. Epub 2014 Mar 1.

Department of Neurology, CHU Toulouse Rangueil, 31059 Toulouse, France. Electronic address:

Background And Purpose: Studies of risk factors for ischemic stroke in the young have generally considered ischemic stroke as a whole. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the association of traditional cardiovascular risk factors with etiological subtypes of ischemic stroke in young adults.

Methods: Retrospective review of data from patients aged 16-54 years consecutively treated for first-ever ischemic stroke in an academic stroke unit. Read More

Diagnosis of vertebral artery dissection with basiparallel anatomical scanning magnetic resonance imaging.

J Nippon Med Sch 2011 ;78(6):367-73

Abashiri Neurosurgical Rehabilitation Hospital, Abashiri, Hokkaido, Japan.

Background And Purpose: There is no consensus regarding the optimal method for diagnosing the dissection of intracranial arteries. We have developed a rapid and accurate examination method to diagnose vertebral artery dissection in the acute stage of cerebral infarction.

Methods: Twenty-two patients with severe headache and neck pain and/or symptoms of brain stem or cerebellar ischemia underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with a 1. Read More

Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging in symptomatic vertebrobasilar atherosclerosis and dissection.

Arch Neurol 2005 Aug;62(8):1228-31

Department of Neurology, Professional Arts Center, University of Miami School of Medicine, Miami, FL 33136, USA.

Background: Acute multiple brain infarction (AMBI) pattern on diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) is associated with arterial and cardiac sources of embolism. The DWI characteristics of patients with stroke due to vertebrobasilar arterial dissection and atherosclerotic disease have not been reported in detail.

Objective: To describe the DWI stroke patterns in patients with posterior circulation occlusive disease to determine mechanisms of ischemia. Read More

Diagnosis and thrombolytic therapy of acute basilar artery occlusion: a review.

Tobias Brandt

Clin Exp Hypertens 2002 Oct-Nov;24(7-8):611-22

Department of Neurology, University of Heidelberg School of Medicine, Heidelberg, Germany.

Acute basilar artery (BA) occlusion is associated with an extremely high mortality. The pathogenesis in younger patients is usually embolism form cardiac sources or less frequently from vertebral artery dissection. Local atherothrombosis is more common in elderly patients. Read More

Patterns of lateral medullary infarction: vascular lesion-magnetic resonance imaging correlation of 34 cases.

Stroke 1998 Mar;29(3):645-52

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

Background And Purpose: Correlation of MRI findings with various vascular pathologies has rarely been attempted in patients with lateral medullary infarction (LMI). The aim of the present study was to correlate the diverse MRI lesions with the vascular lesions seen on conventional cerebral angiography in LMI.

Methods: The subjects included 34 patients with LMI who underwent both MRI and conventional angiography. Read More
