The current study evaluates the incremental value of transluminal attenuation gradient (TAG), TAG with corrected contrast opacification (CCO), and TAG with exclusion of calcified coronary segments (ExC) over coronary computed tomography angiogram (CTA) alone using fractional flow reserve (FFR) as the gold standard. TAG is defined as the contrast opacification ...

Remote ischemic conditioning is cardioprotective in myocardial infarction and neuroprotective in mechanical occlusion models of stroke. However, there is no report on its therapeutic potential in a physiologically relevant embolic stroke model (embolic middle cerebral artery occlusion) in combination with intravenous tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA). We tested remote ischemic perconditioning ...

Prosthetic arteriovenous or arterial-arterial bypass grafts can thrombose and be resistant to revascularization. A thrombosed bypass graft model was created to evaluate the potential therapeutic enhancement and safety profile of pulsed high-intensity-focused ultrasound (pHIFU) on pharmaceutical thrombolysis. In swine, a right carotid-carotid expanded polytetrafluoroethylene bypass graft was surgically constructed, containing ...

A persistent trigeminal artery (PTA) is the most common carotid-vertebrobasilar anastomosis, usually arising from the cavernous or precavernous segment of the internal carotid artery (ICA) and connecting to the distal basilar artery. There are two types of PTA, lateral and medial. We present the first case of a lateral-type PTA ...

Rodent models of focal cerebral ischemia have been extremely useful in elucidating pathomechanisms of human stroke. Most commonly, a monofilament is advanced through the internal carotid artery of rodents to occlude the origin of the middle cerebral artery thus leading to critical ischemia in the corresponding vascular territory. The filament ...

It is critical that traumatic intracranial pseudoaneurysms should be removed completely from the parent artery because there is a possibility of significant morbidity and mortality from the high risk of rebleeding from any remnants of the pseudoaneurysm. However, the deconstruction of the parent artery has the risk of ischemic damage ...

BACKGROUND: Radial artery access is a mainstay in the diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease. However, there is uncertainty on the comparison of right versus left radial access for coronary procedures. We thus undertook a systematic review and meta-analysis comparing right versus left radial access for coronary diagnostic and ...

SUMMARY:Transvenous interventions for intracranial vascular lesions are usually performed via venous access of a femoral vein puncture. However, the transjugular route is an alternative with a shorter and less tortuous vascular access for intracranial lesions. Although puncture of the internal jugular vein is generally believed to be too dangerous owing ...

Intra-arterial therapy (IAT) for acute ischemic stroke has undergone great evolution during the past decade. While intra-venous therapy remains the standard of care for eligible patients, there are those patients in whom IV tPA is contraindicated, or those who fail to improve following IV tPA. In those cases, patients with ...

Intercavernous communication between the left and right internal carotid arteries is an uncommon entity. The authors report a case involving a pediatric patient who was found to have such a vascular anomaly. Such variations should be known by the neurosurgeon so as to avoid misdiagnosis and potential iatrogenic injury.

Microvascular breast reconstruction often sacrifices the internal mammary artery by means of an end-to-end anastomosis. However, an end-to-side anastomosis to the internal mammary artery will maintain the option of using the internal mammary artery for future coronary artery bypass. The authors' goal was to show the feasibility and reliability of ...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Previous ultrasound-based studies have shown an association between carotid artery atherosclerosis and dementia. Our aim was to investigate this association using postmortem examination. METHODS: Postmortem morphometric measurements of carotid stenosis and intima-media thickness were performed in individuals with dementia (n=112) and control subjects (n=577). Multivariate logistic regression ...
