Upper extremity ischemia and hemodialysis vascular access.
Digital ischemia in dialysis patients due to arteriovenous fistulas (AVF) is a rare condition, occurring in 4% of patients. The etiology is different from lower limb ischemia. Blood shunting throughExpand

Prognostic value of computerized tomography scan characteristics in traumatic brain injury: results from the IMPACT study.
Computerized tomography (CT) scanning provides an objective assessment of the structural damage to the brain following traumatic brain injury (TBI). We aimed to describe and quantify the relationshipExpand

Safety and efficacy of frameless and frame-based intracranial biopsy techniques
SummaryBackground. Frameless stereotaxy or neuronavigation has evolved into a feasible technology to acquire intracaranial biopsies with good accuracy and little mortality. However, few studies haveExpand

Prospective evaluation of failure modes in autogenous radiocephalic wrist access for haemodialysis.
INTRODUCTION Radiocephalic wrist arteriovenous fistulae (RCAVF) are the primary and best option for vascular access for haemodialysis treatment. However, 10-24% of these AVFs fail due directly toExpand

Risk factors for infections related to external ventricular drainage
SummaryBackground. External ventricular drainage (EVD) is frequently used in neurosurgery for cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) drainage in patients with raised intracranial pressure. The major complicationExpand

Shear stress depends on vascular territory: comparison between common carotid and brachial artery.
Shear stress (SS) is thought to be constant throughout the vascular system. Evidence for this supposition is scarce, however. To verify this hypothesis in vivo, we assessed common carotid (CCA) andExpand

Clinical Factors Associated With Outcome in Chronic Subdural Hematoma: A Retrospective Cohort Study of Patients on Preoperative Corticosteroid Therapy
BACKGROUND: Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is commonly seen in neurosurgical practice, and the incidence is increasing. Treatment results are highly variable with respect to recurrences andExpand

Central vein obstruction in hemodialysis patients: results of radiological and surgical intervention.
BACKGROUND/AIMS Symptomatic central venosus obstruction (CVO) in dialysis patients with arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) leads to significant morbidity and patient inconvenience. We evaluated theExpand

The effect of flow changes on the arterial system proximal to an arteriovenous fistula for hemodialysis.
Arterial remodeling in response to flow changes is controlled by the endothelium, sensing wall shear stress (SS) changes. The present study focuses on the remodeling capacities of the brachial (BA)Expand

The incidence of postoperative thromboembolic complications following surgical resection of intracranial meningioma. A retrospective study of a large single center patient cohort
BACKGROUND Patients with meningiomas carry an increased risk for postoperative venous thromboembolic complications (VTE) including deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). Expand
