Patients with poor-grade subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) are often complicated with acute cardiopulmonary dysfunctions, particularly neurogenic pulmonary edema (NPE) and takotsubo-like cardiomyopathy (TCM). This study retrospectively investigated the incidence, demographics, clinical characteristics, and outcomes of patients with SAH complicated with both NPE(More)
Aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a common cause of cardiopulmonary arrest (CPA). The outcomes of SAH patients presenting with CPA are extremely poor, and long-term survivors have occasionally been reported, but the circumstances under which SAH-CPA patients achieve long-term survival are unclear. Neurosurgeons will have to determine whether a(More)
Headache is one of the most common manifestations of non-traumatic intracranial hemorrhage, which is an uncommon, but not rare, cause of cardiac arrest in adults. History of a sudden headache preceding collapse may be a helpful clue to estimate the cause of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). Medical records of witnessed OHCA patients were reviewed to(More)
Ground-level fall is the most common cause of traumatic intracranial hemorrhage (TICH) in the elderly. Many studies on geriatric TICH have regarded patients aged ≥65 years as a single group, but substantial heterogeneity is likely to exist within this population. Eighty-two elderly patients with fall-related TICH treated in our institution during a 6-year(More)
BACKGROUND Neurosurgeons have been familiar with the idea that hypothermia is protective against various types of brain injuries, including traumatic brain injury (TBI). Recent randomized controlled trials, however, have failed to demonstrate the efficacy of therapeutic hypothermia (TH) in patients with TBI. On the other hand, TH becomes popular in the(More)
