Recanalization of acute atherothrombotic vertebrobasilar occlusions is a challenging neuroendovascular procedure. A long angiographic occlusion frequently overestimates the true extent of occlusive plaque. We propose the novel use of the Solitaire stent (ev3 Endovascular, Plymouth, MN, USA) as an adjuvant device in the endovascular management of acute atherothrombotic vertebrobasilar occlusions ...

Acute pulmonary embolism is a critical condition associated with increased mortality. Lung embolization causes acute pulmonary hypertension and right ventricle afterload. Global heart ischemia supervenes and may lead to severe shock and death. In this article, we reviewed current literature supporting the idea that abnormal matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) activity contributes ...
