In 2010, a 49-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with chest pain. Angiography via the radial approach was performed. Acute brachial artery occlusion was present after the procedure. By transcat...
Few studies have examined the relationship between abnormal ankle-brachial index (ABI) and short-term outcome in patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS).
Summary Coronary embolism is an uncommon cause of myocardial infarction. The usual source of a coronary embolus is an intracardiac thrombus or vegetation. Embolisation to the left main coronary artery...
Background. Metabolic syndromes such as Wernicke's encephalopathy may present with a sudden neurological deficit, thus mimicking acute onset stroke. Due to current emphasis on rapid admission and trea...
QT dispersion (QTd) has been proposed as an indirect electrocardiography (ECG) measure of heterogeneity of ventricular repolarization. The predictive value of QTd in acute stroke remains controversial...
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.
