A randomized trial of vertebroplasty for osteoporotic spinal fractures.
TLDR
Improvements in pain and pain-related disability associated with osteoporotic compression fractures in patients treated with vertebroplasty were similar to the improvements in a control group.
Percutaneous polymethylmethacrylate vertebroplasty in the treatment of osteoporotic vertebral body compression fractures: technical aspects.
TLDR
Vertebroplasty is a valuable tool in the treatment of painful osteoporotic vertebral fractures, providing acute pain relief and early mobilization in appropriate patients, and is technically successful in all patients.
Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome: associated clinical and radiologic findings.
TLDR
A substantial proportion of patients with PRES have underlying autoimmune conditions that may support endothelial dysfunction as a pathophysiologic mechanism, and patients with sepsis were more likely to have cortical involvement.
Intracranial Gadolinium Deposition after Contrast-enhanced MR Imaging.
TLDR
Intravenous GBCA exposure is associated with neuronal tissue deposition in the setting of relatively normal renal function and the generalizability to other GBCAs is investigated.
Pipeline for uncoilable or failed aneurysms: results from a multicenter clinical trial.
TLDR
PED offers a reasonably safe and effective treatment of large or giant intracranial internal carotid artery aneurysms, demonstrated by high rates of completeAneurysm occlusion and low rates of adverse neurologic events; even in aneurYSms failing previous alternative treatments.
Endovascular Treatment of Intracranial Aneurysms With Flow Diverters: A Meta-Analysis
TLDR
Treatment of intracranial aneurysms with flow-diverter devices is feasible and effective with high complete occlusion rates, however, the risk of procedure-related morbidity and mortality is not negligible.
Complications of diagnostic cerebral angiography: evaluation of 19,826 consecutive patients.
TLDR
Demographic, procedural, and complication data in 19 826 consecutive patients undergoing diagnostic cerebral angiography at one institution from 1981 through 2003 were retrospectively reviewed.
Bovine aortic arch variant in humans: clarification of a common misnomer.
TLDR
The most common human aortic arch branching patterns are described and compared with the bovine aortics arch, which has no resemblance to either of the two.
New fractures after vertebroplasty: adjacent fractures occur significantly sooner.
TLDR
Following vertebroplasty, patients are at increased risk of new-onset adjacent-level fractures and, when these fractures occur, they occur sooner than non-adjacent level fractures.
Systematic Literature Review of Imaging Features of Spinal Degeneration in Asymptomatic Populations
TLDR
This meta-analysis of the literature reveals that imaging findings of spine degeneration are present in high proportions of asymptomatic individuals, increasing with age, and must be interpreted in the context of the patient's clinical condition.
