Guidelines for the Early Management of Patients With Acute Ischemic Stroke: A Guideline for Healthcare Professionals From the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association
These guidelines supersede the prior 2007 guidelines and 2009 updates and support the overarching concept of stroke systems of care and detail aspects of stroke care from patient recognition; emergency medical services activation, transport, and triage; through the initial hours in the emergency department and stroke unit.
Definition of Delayed Cerebral Ischemia After Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage as an Outcome Event in Clinical Trials and Observational Studies: Proposal of a Multidisciplinary Research Group
An international ad hoc panel of experts involved in subarachnoid hemorrhage research developed and proposed a definition of DCI to be used as an outcome measure in clinical trials and observational studies, which reflect the most relevant morphological and clinical features ofDCI.
Very early hypothermia induction in patients with severe brain injury (the National Acute Brain Injury Study: Hypothermia II): a randomised trial
Comparative Overview of Brain Perfusion Imaging Techniques
A comparative overview established by consensus among specialists of the various techniques dedicated to brain hemodynamics is presented, to offer a clearer picture of the pros and cons of currently available brain perfusion imaging techniques.
Hyperthermia in the Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit
Fever is common in critically ill neurosurgical patients, especially those with a prolonged length of stay in the ICU or a cranial disease, and treatment of fever is a clinical issue that requires better management.
Temporary balloon test occlusion of the internal carotid artery: experience in 500 cases.
Temporary balloon occlusion of the internal carotid artery, believed helpful in identifying patients at risk of stroke during abrupt carotids artery sacrifice, can be performed with an acceptably low complication rate.
Acute regional cerebral blood flow changes caused by severe head injuries.
In patients without surgical mass lesions, the findings suggest that CBF in the first few hours after injury is often low, followed by a hyperemic phase that peaks at 24 hours, which underscores the need to define regional CBF abnormalities in victims of severe head injury if treatment is intended to prevent regional ischemia.
Guidelines and recommendations for perfusion imaging in cerebral ischemia: A scientific statement for healthcare professionals by the writing group on perfusion imaging, from the Council on…
A number of techniques have been developed during the past four decades to evaluate cerebral perfusion, and with the evolution of helical and spiral multislice CT technology, CT perfusion (CTP) imaging is becoming a potentially important clinical technique.

Young children (<24 months) may represent a particular high-risk group with early hypoperfusion after severe TBI and this finding may be a key factor in the pathophysiology and outcome in this age group, and may need to be addressed in the future therapeutic protocols.
Saccular aneurysm formation in curved and bifurcating arteries.
Finite element models offer a plausible hypothesis regarding the initiation, growth, and subsequent rupture of saccular intracranial aneurysms as they relate to the hemodynamics of intrac Cranial arterial blood flow.
