The first-line treatment of Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is systemic anticoagulation. However, patients with severe or clinical worsening condition might benefit from mechanical thrombectomy (MT) combined intra-operative thrombolysis (IOT) or MT with continuous thrombolytic infusion (CTI). This study aimed to compare the efficacy and safety of these two endovascular therapeutic methods by performing a systematic review of literature.

The present Bayesian network meta-analysis aimed to compare the various strategies for acute ischemic stroke: direct endovascular thrombectomy within the thrombolysis window in patients with no contra...
Endovascular thrombectomy may be performed in anticoagulated patients taking vitamin-K antagonists (VKA) or direct-acting oral anticoagulants (DOAC) in whom the use of intravenous tissue plasminogen a...
Mechanical thrombectomy (MT) in combination with intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) is the standard of care for patients with acute ischemic stroke with anterior circulation large vessel occlusion. The pa...
A substantial proportion of patients with ischemic stroke present with mild neurological deficits ('Stroke with mild symptoms,' SMS). Treating these patients with thrombolysis or with thrombectomy is ...
To assess the safety of low-dose intra-arterial (IA) tirofiban bolus after unsuccessful mechanical thrombectomy in patients with ischemic stroke due to large artery occlusion in anterior cerebral circ...
This study aims to identify factors influencing the time span and success of reperfusion after a mechanical thrombectomy in the acute phase of cerebral infarction, and in particular the ef...
Intravenous thrombolysis with recombinant tissue-type plasminogen activator (IV t-PA) has been the only proven therapy for acute ischemic stroke (AIS) for almost 20 years. Whether IV t-PA ...
In France, the annual incidence rate of acute ischaemic stroke is around 150 000 patients, 65 % of whom keep long-term disability. Several multicentric randomized controlled trials have sh...
Objectives: This study aims to assess if the use of general anesthesia (GA) or sedation (CS) in patients with acute stroke undergoing intra-arterial mechanical thrombectomy, leads to bett...
SYNTHESIS is a pragmatic multicenter randomized controlled trial (RCT), open-label, with blinded follow-up aiming to determine whether loco-regional intra-arterial (IA) with recombinant ti...
Procedures to cause the disintegration of THROMBI by physical interventions.
Intraoperative computer-assisted 3D navigation and guidance system generally used in neurosurgery for tracking surgical tools and localize them with respect to the patient's 3D anatomy. The pre-operative diagnostic scan is used as a reference and is transferred onto the operative field during surgery.
That phase of clinical dentistry concerned with the restoration of parts of existing teeth that are defective through disease, trauma, or abnormal development, to the state of normal function, health, and esthetics, including preventive, diagnostic, biological, mechanical, and therapeutic techniques, as well as material and instrument science and application. (Jablonski's Dictionary of Dentistry, 2d ed, p237)
A painful disability in the hand affecting the finger or thumb. It is caused by mechanical impingement of the digital flexor tendons as they pass through a narrowed retinacular pulley at the level of the metacarpal head. Thickening of the sheath and fibrocartilaginous metaplasia can occur, and nodules can form. (From Green's Operative Hand Surgery, 5th ed, p2137-58).
An acute necrotic infection of the SCROTUM; PENIS; or PERINEUM. It is characterized by scrotum pain and redness with rapid progression to gangrene and sloughing of tissue. Fournier gangrene is usually secondary to perirectal or periurethral infections associated with local trauma, operative procedures, or urinary tract disease.
Stroke - Cerebrovascular Disease (CVA)
A stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and prompt treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is ...
