It is well established that atrial fibrillation (AF) is far more common in elderly humans. Autonomic activation is thought to be an operative mechanism for AF propensity. The aim of the study was to investigate the impact of age on atrial tachyarrhythmia induction in a rabbit model. Six old (aged 4-6 years) and 9 young (aged 3-4 months) New Zealand white(More)
OBJECTIVES Mamillary bodies play an important role in human memory and emotions. Vascular lesions causing an isolated mammillary body lesion without affecting the surrounding structures are very rare. METHODS A 53-year-old male was brought to the emergency department with acute-onset memory problems suggestive of partial anterograde and retrograde(More)
Over the last few decades, the management of acute ischemic stroke has undergone significant advancements with the introduction of intravenous thrombolysis and more recently punctuated by the success of endovascular mechanical thrombectomy trials for large vessel occlusion. These advancements have transformed the practice of neurocritical care. In this(More)
OBJECTIVE We sought to determine the safety of IV thrombolysis (IVT) in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients harboring unruptured intracranial aneurysm (UIA) in a multicenter study and a comprehensive meta-analysis of available case series. METHODS We analyzed prospectively collected data from consecutive AIS patients treated with IVT during a 4-year(More)
Atrial-fibrillation (AF) is the most common clinically encountered arrhythmia affecting over 1 per cent of population in the United States and its prevalence seems to be moving only in forward direction. A recent systemic review estimates global prevalence of AF to be 596.2 and 373.1 per 100,000 population in males and females respectively. Multiple(More)
