The natural history of acute ischemic stroke (AIS) due to anterior circulation large artery occlusion is not well established. This information is essential for assessment of clinical benefit derived...
Brachial artery aneurysms are relatively rare and are mostly pseudoaneurysms rather than true aneurysms, as true aneurysms are even rarer entities. Patients can be asymptomatic, or present with pulsat...
Vertebral artery origin (VAO) stenosis is occasionally observed in patients who have acute ischemic stroke. We investigated the long-term outcomes and clinical significance of VAO stenosis in patients...
High-level plasma D-dimer suggests hypercoagulable states. There is a lack of correlation study of plasma D-dimer level and prognosis according to the Trial of Org 10172 in Acute Stroke Treatment (TOA...
In patients with acute stroke and middle cerebral artery (MCA) stenosis, microembolic signals (MES) can predict further cerebral ischemia. Therefore, this study was designed to evaluate the prevalence...
Purpose: To assess the prevalence of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) in acute stroke patients. Interventions: Assessment of the ankle brachial index using the "boso-ABI-system 1...
The purpose of the trial is to evaluate the safety of microplasmin as well as its ability to open blocked arteries to the brain in patients with acute stroke when given into the artery at...
The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of a home-based depression treatment intervention called "Program to Encourage Active, Rewarding Lives (PEARL)". We hypothesize that...
A study to evaluate the inter- and intra subject variabilities of flow-mediated dilation (FMD) of brachial artery and nitroglycerin (GTN) induced dilation of brachial artery.
The safety and efficacy of MK0724 will be assessed in patients with acute middle cerebral artery stroke using the Action Reach Arm Test (ARAT). This test allows measurement of a specific f...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Comparison of the BLOOD PRESSURE between the BRACHIAL ARTERY and the POSTERIOR TIBIAL ARTERY. It is a predictor of PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE.
The direct continuation of the brachial trunk, originating at the bifurcation of the brachial artery opposite the neck of the radius. Its branches may be divided into three groups corresponding to the three regions in which the vessel is situated, the forearm, wrist, and hand.
The larger of the two terminal branches of the brachial artery, beginning about one centimeter distal to the bend of the elbow. Like the RADIAL ARTERY, its branches may be divided into three groups corresponding to their locations in the forearm, wrist, and hand.
The continuation of the axillary artery; it branches into the radial and ulnar arteries.
Blocking of the PULMONARY ARTERY or one of its branches by an EMBOLUS.
