Institute of Neurosurgery, Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli IRCCS, Catholic University, Rome, Italy.

Brain metastases from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCCBM) are encountered very rarely in clinical practice, especially in western countries. Only a minority of patients undergoes resective surgery, as clinical picture is usually complex and presentation is often catastrophic with intra-cerebral hemorrhage (ICH). Neurosurgical intervention can be not only life-saving but may also alleviate significantly the burden of symptoms. Read More

Early Laboratory Predictors for Necessity of Renal Replacement Therapy in Patients With Spontaneous Deep-Seated Intracerebral Hemorrhage.

Front Neurol 2021 25;12:636711. Epub 2021 Feb 25.

Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine, University Hospital Bonn, Bonn, Germany.

The need for continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) in patients with deep-seated intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) requires sustained intensive care and often postpones further rehabilitation therapy. Therefore, an early identification of patients at risk is essential. From 2014 to 2019, all patients with deep-seated ICH who were admitted to intensive care for >3 days were included in the further analysis and retrospectively reviewed for the need for CRRT.

Intraoperative Neuromonitoring for Cerebral Arteriovenous Malformation Embolization: A Propensity-Score Matched Retrospective Database Study.

Cureus 2021 Jan 27;13(1):e12946. Epub 2021 Jan 27.

Radiology, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, USA.

Introduction The treatment of cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) may result in neurologic morbidity, particularly when an AVM is located in or adjacent to eloquent brain regions. Intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring (IONM) may be utilized to reduce the risk of iatrogenic injury during endovascular AVM embolization; however, IONM for endovascular AVM embolization is not ubiquitously the standard of care. Methods Admissions for AVM embolization were assessed from the IBM MarketScan® Commercial and Medicare Supplemental databases (IBM Watson Health, Somers, NY). Read More

Dual-Energy CT Angiography Improves Accuracy of Spot Sign for Predicting Hematoma Expansion in Intracerebral Hemorrhage.

J Stroke 2021 Jan 31;23(1):82-90. Epub 2021 Jan 31.

Department of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, MHeNS School for Mental Health and Neuroscience, Maastricht University Medical Center, Maastricht, Netherlands.

Background And Purpose: Spot sign (SS) on computed tomography angiography (CTA) is associated with hematoma expansion (HE) and poor outcome after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). However, its predictive performance varies across studies, possibly because differentiating hyperdense hemorrhage from contrast media is difficult. We investigated whether dual-energy-CTA (DE-CTA), which can separate hemorrhage from iodinated contrast, improves the diagnostic accuracy of SS for predicting HE. Read More
