Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy
A heterogeneous group of sporadic or familial disorders characterized by AMYLOID deposits in the walls of small and medium sized blood vessels of CEREBRAL CORTEX and MENINGES. Clinical features include multiple, small lobar CEREBRAL HEMORRHAGE; cerebral ischemia (BRAIN ISCHEMIA); and CEREBRAL INFARCTION. Cerebral amyloid angiopathy is unrelated to generalized AMYLOIDOSIS. Amyloidogenic peptides in this condition are nearly always the same ones found in ALZHEIMER DISEASE. (from Kumar: Robbins and Cotran: Pathologic Basis of Disease, 7th ed., 2005)
Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy, Familial
A familial disorder marked by AMYLOID deposits in the walls of small and medium sized blood vessels of CEREBRAL CORTEX and MENINGES.
Transient autoimmune thyroiditis occurring in the POSTPARTUM PERIOD. It is characterized by the presence of high titers of AUTOANTIBODIES against THYROID PEROXIDASE and THYROGLOBULIN. Clinical signs include the triphasic thyroid hormone pattern: beginning with THYROTOXICOSIS, followed with HYPOTHYROIDISM, then return to euthyroid state by 1 year postpartum.
Excess blood loss from uterine bleeding associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR or CHILDBIRTH. It is defined as blood loss greater than 500 ml or of the amount that adversely affects the maternal physiology, such as BLOOD PRESSURE and HEMATOCRIT. Postpartum hemorrhage is divided into two categories, immediate (within first 24 hours after birth) or delayed (after 24 hours postpartum).
Depression in POSTPARTUM WOMEN, usually within four weeks after giving birth (PARTURITION). The degree of depression ranges from mild transient depression to neurotic or psychotic depressive disorders. (From DSM-IV, p386)
The occurrence and progression of cerebral beta-amyloid angiopathy and beta-amyloid plaques in sporadic Alzheimer's disease may be attributed to aging-related deficiencies in beta-amyloid drainage alo...
INTRODUCTION: Cerebral amyloid angiopathy is a major cause of lobar hemorrhage in older adults, and of microvascular ischemic disease. The rarest form of this disease is an inflammatory form causing s...
Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is defined as the deposition of amyloid ß peptide within leptomeningial and cortical vessels, likely reflecting an imbalance between Aβ production and clearance. Am...
Background. Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is a frequent finding in the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). CAA may be complicated with CAA-associated intracerebral haemorrhage (CAAH)...
The main objective of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of Cerebril™ in Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy (CAA) patients who have had lobar cerebral hemor...
This prospective multicenter cohort study aims to define the clinical, radiological and mutational spectrum of the disease related to COL4A1 gene.
This study will determine whether a prevention program reduces the incidence of postpartum depression in pregnant women who receive public assistance and are at risk for postpartum depress...
The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility and efficacy of an exercise intervention for the prevention of postpartum depression. If efficacious, our intervention could be dis...
Previous studies have shown "Doing the month", a traditional practice for postpartum women in China and other Asian countries, may be associated with higher prevalence of postpartum proble...
