A case of acute brachial artery occlusion after transradial coronary intervention.

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...

Direct carotid artery puncture access for endovascular treatment of acute ischemic stroke: technical aspects, advantages, and limitations.

Challenging anatomy for carotid artery access can result in a delay to achieve successful recanalization in patients with acute ischemic stroke. Our objective was to study emergent direct percutaneous...

A case of left main coronary artery embolus further embolising to the left anterior descending artery.

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...

Predictive value of the ankle brachial index in patients with acute ischemic stroke.

Background: Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is frequently present in patients with acute ischemic stroke. However, there are limited data regarding the association between ankle brachial index (ABI)...

Wernicke's Encephalopathy Mimicking Acute Onset Stroke Diagnosed by CT Perfusion.

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...

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.
