Chemodectomas are rare neuroendocrine tumors that typically arise at the carotid bifurcation and progressively englobe the internal and external carotid artery. Surgical asportation of the capsulated mass is the elective treatment. Pre-procedural embolization of this high vascular tumors is highly recommended because it has shown to improve surgical outcome by reducing both, mean blood loss and total operation time. Read More

Concomitant Embolization and Microsurgical Resection of a Giant, Hypervascular Skull Base Meningioma: 2-Dimensional Operative Video.

Oper Neurosurg (Hagerstown) 2021 Apr 30. Epub 2021 Apr 30.

Department of Neurosurgery, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Some skull base tumors can be extremely hypervascular, incorporating multiple vascular territories and demonstrating arteriovenous shunting. Devascularization is a critical step undertaken early in meningioma surgery, necessary before the debulking that is required in skull base tumors. While devascularization can often be achieved with appropriate approach selection, bony drilling, and microsurgical cautery, preoperative embolization of meningiomas has an invaluable role in selected cases.

Neurochirurgie 2021 Apr 22. Epub 2021 Apr 22.

CHU Rouen, Department of Neurosurgery, Rouen, F-76000, France.

Introduction: Carotid angioplasty and stenting (CAS) of the cervical segment is a safe and effective procedure for the treatment of carotid artery disease. In rare cases, this procedure causes intracranial hemorrhage (ICH), which is described most often as an ipsilateral intra-parenchymal hematoma. This ICH is the result of a cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome (CHS). Read More

Parasympathetic brainstem origin sites of triggered external and internal carotid vasodilation are not distributed topographically in the rat.

Yumi Takemoto

Neurosci Lett 2021 Apr 21;755:135904. Epub 2021 Apr 21.

Department of Physiology II, Graduate School of Biomedical and Health Sciences (Medicine), Hiroshima University, Hiroshima, Japan. Electronic address:

Cranial parasympathetic activation produces vasodilation in the head and neck region, but little is known about its central and peripheral mechanisms. This study was conducted to examine whether external and internal carotid-vasodilation origin sites triggered by chemical stimulation are distributed topographically in the parasympathetic brainstems of anesthetized rats, and to examine the effects of peripheral receptors on vasodilation. Microinjection of the neuromodulator candidate l-cysteine revealed that external and internal carotid vasodilation-triggering sites were distributed non-topographically along the full extent of the parasympathetic parvocellular reticular formation (PcRt).

Effect of jump exercise training on long-term head-down bed rest-induced cerebral blood flow responses in arteries and veins.

Exp Physiol 2021 Apr 18. Epub 2021 Apr 18.

Unicaen, Inserm Comete, GIP Cyceron, Normandie University, Caen, France.

New Findings: What is the central question of this study? What is the effect of an exercise countermeasure on microgravity-induced change in cerebral blood flow? What is the main finding and its importance? Jump exercise training as a countermeasure did not modify the heterogeneous cerebral blood flow response to head-down bed rest, suggesting that this method is effective in preventing cardiovascular system deconditioning but is not good for cerebral haemodynamics.

Abstract: This study aimed to examine the effect of an exercise countermeasure on cerebral blood flow (CBF) response to long-term -6° head-down bed rest (HDBR) in all cerebral arteries and veins. Twenty male volunteers were exposed to HDBR for 60 days with (training group, n = 10) or without (control group, n = 10) jump exercise training as a countermeasure to spaceflight. Read More

No correlation between mean platelet volume and carotid artery thickness in patients with diabetes at intermediate or high risk for cardiovascular diseases.

Blood Coagul Fibrinolysis 2021 Apr 14. Epub 2021 Apr 14.

Department of Clinical Laboratory Department of Hematology, Chugoku Central Hospital, Fukuyama Department of Hematology, Okayama University Medical School, Okayama, Japan.

The number of patients with diabetes with a risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) is increasing worldwide, leading to a higher demand for evaluating atherosclerosis. Recently, the mean platelet volume (MPV) available from complete blood count is gaining attention as a marker of underlying atherosclerotic lesions. In the current study, we examined whether MPV can predict carotid atherosclerosis in patients with diabetes at an intermediate or high risk for CVD. Read More
