Repetitive CT perfusion for detection of cerebral vasospasm-related hypoperfusion in aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage.

08:00 EDT 8th October 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Repetitive CT perfusion for detection of cerebral vasospasm-related hypoperfusion in aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage."

Delayed cerebral infarction after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) still remains the leading cause of disability in patients that survive the initial ictus. It has been shown that CT perfusion (CTP) imaging can detect hypoperfused brain areas. The aim of this study was to evaluate if a single acute CTP examination at time of neurological deterioration is sufficient or if an additional baseline CTP increases diagnostic accuracy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Sepsis associated with HYPOTENSION or hypoperfusion despite adequate fluid resuscitation. Perfusion abnormalities may include, but are not limited to LACTIC ACIDOSIS; OLIGURIA; or acute alteration in mental status.

Degeneration of white matter adjacent to the CEREBRAL VENTRICLES following cerebral hypoxia or BRAIN ISCHEMIA in neonates. The condition primarily affects white matter in the perfusion zone between superficial and deep branches of the MIDDLE CEREBRAL ARTERY. Clinical manifestations include VISION DISORDERS; CEREBRAL PALSY; PARAPLEGIA; SEIZURES; and cognitive disorders. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1021; Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1997, Ch4, pp30-1)

Symptoms of cerebral hypoperfusion or autonomic overaction which develop while the subject is standing, but are relieved on recumbency. Types of this include NEUROCARDIOGENIC SYNCOPE; POSTURAL ORTHOSTATIC TACHYCARDIA SYNDROME; and neurogenic ORTHOSTATIC HYPOTENSION. (From Noseworthy, JH., Neurological Therapeutics Principles and Practice, 2007, p2575-2576)

Sensitive method for detection of bacterial endotoxins and endotoxin-like substances that depends on the in vitro gelation of Limulus amebocyte lysate (LAL), prepared from the circulating blood (amebocytes) of the horseshoe crab, by the endotoxin or related compound. Used for detection of endotoxin in body fluids and parenteral pharmaceuticals.

Detection of drugs that have been abused, overused, or misused, including legal and illegal drugs. Urine screening is the usual method of detection.
