Impact of diffusion-weighted MRI-measured initial cerebral infarction volume on clinical outcome in acute stroke patients with middle cerebral artery occlusion treated by thrombolysis
Introduction:Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may help identify acute stroke patients with a higher potential benefit from thrombolytic therapy. The aim of our study was to assess the correlationExpand
Comparison of ultrasonography, CT angiography, and digital subtraction angiography in severe carotid stenoses
Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) is considered to be the ‘gold standard’ for confirmation of severe (70–99%) stenoses of internal carotid arteries (ICAs). However, it is associated with a riskExpand
Acute combined revascularization in acute ischemic stroke with intracranial arterial occlusion: self-expanding solitaire stent during intravenous thrombolysis.
PURPOSE To investigate the safety and efficacy of the self-expanding Solitaire stent used during intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) for intracranial arterial occlusion (IAO) in acute ischemic strokeExpand
Posterior vs. Anterior Circulation Infarction: Demography, Outcomes, and Frequency of Hemorrhage after Thrombolysis
Background Intravenous thrombolysis is considered to be the standard specific reperfusion therapy in acute ischemic stroke in both anterior and posterior cerebral circulation. Aims Our aim was toExpand
Endovascular treatment of abdominal aortic paraanastomotic pseudoaneurysms after surgical reconstruction.
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of endovascular treatment of paraaortic postoperative abdominal aortic pseudoaneurysms. MATERIALS AND METHODS From April 1996 to November 2007 five men withExpand
The safety and efficacy of bridging full-dose IV-IA thrombolysis in acute ischemic stroke patients with MCA occlusion: a comparison with IV thrombolysis alone.
AIMS Early recanalization of the occluded cerebral artery is substantial for clinical improvement in acute ischemic stroke (IS) patients. The rate of achieved recanalizations using IVT is low. TheExpand
Familial occurrence of cerebral arteriovenous malformation in sisters: case report * and review of the literature
Cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are considered to be congenital disorders. However, their familial occurrence has so far been described in only 19 families in the literature. The authorsExpand
Can we identify patients with carotid occlusion who would benefit from EC/IC bypass? Review.
Occlusion of the internal carotid artery (CAO) is associated with a high mortality rate and frequent disability in survivors. Even in patients with good clinical recovery there is a high risk ofExpand
The assessment of beta amyloid, tau protein and cystatin C in the cerebrospinal fluid: laboratory markers of neurodegenerative diseases
To assess the role of tau protein, beta-amyloid(1–42) and cystatin C in the diagnostics of Alzheimer dementia (AD) and other neurodegenerative diseases (ND) by comparing to the control groups (CG).Expand
New laboratory markers in diagnosis of alzheimer dementia
Abstract Objectives: The aim of our work was to assess the role of tau protein, beta amyloid and cystatin C in diagnosis of Alzheimer dementia (AD) and other neurodegenerative diseases (NDs).Expand
