Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is an incretin hormone known to stimulate glucose-dependent insulin secretion. The GLP-1 receptor agonist, exendin-4, has similar properties to GLP-1 and is currently in clinical use for type 2 diabetes mellitus. As GLP-1 and exendin-4 confer cardioprotection after myocardial infarction, this study was designed to assess the(More)
The anterior communicating artery (ACoA) often limits surgical exposure in the anterior interhemispheric approach. Although division of the ACoA has been proposed occasionally, it is rarely practiced, and criteria for such a surgical maneuver remain unknown. Our purpose was to identify key factors that allow for predicting the necessity of controlled ACoA(More)
Although challenging, neuroprotective therapies for ischemic stroke remain an interesting strategy for countering ischemic injury and suppressing brain tissue damage. Among potential neuroprotective molecules, heat shock protein 27 (HSP27) is a strong cell death suppressor. To assess the neuroprotective effects of HSP27 in a mouse model of transient middle(More)
A 68-year-old man experienced a right caudate haemorrhage with intraventricular haemorrhage. Although a subarachnoid haemorrhage was not shown clearly, our investigation demonstrated an aneurysm-like vascular pouch located in the anomalous vessel arising from the A2 segment of the right anterior cerebral artery. Rupture of the vascular pouch was considered(More)
BACKGROUND Spontaneous thalamic hemorrhage has increased in incidence in recent years. Analysis of the characteristics of thalamic hemorrhage was based on the vascular territories of the thalamus. METHODS Retrospective analysis included 303 consecutive patients with spontaneous thalamic hemorrhage. Thalamic hemorrhage was classified into 4 types: anterior(More)
A 41-year-old man, without underlying health problems or traumatic episodes, presented with a rare paravertebral arteriovenous fistula (AVF) causing radiculopathy manifesting as gradually progressive right grip weakness, and right thumb, index, and middle finger numbness. Digital subtraction angiography revealed a high flow, single hole paravertebral AVF(More)
