Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is a common type of stroke in young adults and associated with 8% mortality. High intracranial pressure (ICP) and brain herniation are the most common cause of death in these patients. In contrast to malignant arterial middle cerebral infarction there are few studies reporting the efficacy of decompressive craniectomy (DC) for treatment of high ICP in CVT patients. In this study, we assess the clinical outcome of CVT patients with impending brain herniation treated with DC versus medical management.

To establish a novel rat model of middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) complicated with prior venous stagnation, and to investigate the role of cerebral venous drainage in neural injury after acute...
Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is a cerebrovascular disorder that causes venous infarction and intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) with occlusion of cerebral veins, and its incidence is estimated to be 5...
Although it was suggested that idiopathic thromobocytopenic purpura (ITP) can be a paradoxical cause of cerebral infarction, previous reports indicate that cerebral infarction associated with ITP occu...
Decompressive hemicraniectomy (DH) is the mainstay of treatment for malignant middle cerebral artery infarction (MMI). Although this operation significantly reduces mortality and improves functional o...
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence and related risk factors of new silent cerebral infarction in patients with acute non-cerebral amyloid angiopathy (non-CAA) intracereb...
The purpose of this study is to determine if patients with malignant middle cerebral artery infarction have a better clinical outcome after early decompressive surgery compared to standard...
This is a single centre, observational study with a medical device which has CE-marking. The aim of the study is to demonstrate that patients with malignant middle cerebral artery infarcti...
The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of cranioplasty on cerebral hemodynamic and blood flow as prognostic factor in patients receiving decompressive craniectomy for Head inj...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of dHACM in reducing scar tissue formation in craniectomy patients as well as facilitating reoperation and repair. Specifically t...
Space-occupying, malignant middle cerebral artery (M-MCA) infarctions are still one of the most devastating forms of ischemic stroke, with a mortality of up to 80% in untreated patients. I...
The formation of an area of NECROSIS in the CEREBRUM caused by an insufficiency of arterial or venous blood flow. Infarcts of the cerebrum are generally classified by hemisphere (i.e., left vs. right), lobe (e.g., frontal lobe infarction), arterial distribution (e.g., INFARCTION, ANTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY), and etiology (e.g., embolic infarction).
NECROSIS occurring in the ANTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY system, including branches such as Heubner's artery. These arteries supply blood to the medial and superior parts of the CEREBRAL HEMISPHERE, Infarction in the anterior cerebral artery usually results in sensory and motor impairment in the lower body.
NECROSIS occurring in the MIDDLE CEREBRAL ARTERY distribution system which brings blood to the entire lateral aspects of each CEREBRAL HEMISPHERE. Clinical signs include impaired cognition; APHASIA; AGRAPHIA; weak and numbness in the face and arms, contralaterally or bilaterally depending on the infarction.
A receptive visual aphasia characterized by the loss of a previously possessed ability to comprehend the meaning or significance of handwritten words, despite intact vision. This condition may be associated with posterior cerebral artery infarction (INFARCTION, POSTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY) and other BRAIN DISEASES.
NECROSIS induced by ISCHEMIA in the POSTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY distribution system which supplies portions of the BRAIN STEM; the THALAMUS; TEMPORAL LOBE, and OCCIPITAL LOBE. Depending on the size and location of infarction, clinical features include OLFACTION DISORDERS and visual problems (AGNOSIA; ALEXIA; HEMIANOPSIA).
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 ...
