The objective of the present study was to evaluate the correlation between sympathetic nerve activation and inflammatory response in the acute stage of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) in a canine perforating model. SAH was induced by perforation of the basilar artery with the use of a microcatheter via the femoral artery in 20 mongrel dogs. Hemodynamic(More)
Hyperperfusion syndrome (HPS) is a rare but potentially devastating postoperative complication developing after endarterectomy and carotid stenting. Limited information is available about this complication. The aim of this study was to assess the incidence of HPS and risk factors leading to its development. We retrospectively reviewed 178 consecutive cases(More)
Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is an important cause of mortality in stroke patients. Long non-coding RNAs (LncRNAs) have important functions in brain disease, however their expression profiles in SAH remain to be elucidated. The present study aimed to investigate the expression signatures of LncRNAs and mRNAs in early brain injury (EBI) following SAH in a(More)
A recent genome-wide association study has identified an association between rs1920116 near TERC and high-grade glioma in populations of European ancestry. In order to evaluate the effect of the SNP rs1920116 near TERC in the Chinese population, we examined associations of this candidate SNP with glioma in a sample of 1970 Chinese Han individuals. SNP(More)
The treatment of brain arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) remains a significant challenge, especially hemorrhagic AVMs which are unsuitable for microsurgery or radiosurgery. We demonstrate an AVM located in the left basal ganglia area, supplied by slender arteries, and treated by the transvenous pressure cooker technique. Herein, we describe the procedure(More)
Mdivi-1 is a selective inhibitor of mitochondrial fission protein, Drp1, and can penetrate the blood–brain barrier. Previous studies have shown that Mdivi-1 improves neurological outcomes after ischemia, seizures and trauma but it remains unclear whether Mdivi-1 can attenuate early brain injury after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). We thus investigated the(More)
Hemorrhagic stroke is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Hemin is a decomposition product of hemoglobin that is related to neuronal apoptosis after hemorrhage, although the molecular basis for this association remains unclear. To address this issue, the present study investigated hemin-induced changes in the apoptotic index and mitochondrial(More)
