Endovascular treatment of peripheral artery disease has recently become more important due to its minimally invasive nature. Elderly patients as well as fragile patients, like diabetics and those with...
Studies evaluating individuals for endothelial injury after endovascular thrombectomy (EVT) have been done by means of retrieved human thrombus, MR vessel-wall imaging, and animal histopathological st...
Vertebral artery dissection (VAD) followed by basilar artery occlusion/stroke (BAO/BAS) is a rare but potentially life-threatening complication. We present a case report of a 7-year-old boy with VAD c...
To report a case of cervical radiculopathy caused by an anomalous vertebral artery (VA) and the efficacy of endovascular vertebral artery sacrifice.
A higher Totaled Health Risks in Vascular Events (THRIVE) score has been shown to predict poor functional outcome in patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS) and anterior circulation large vessel occ...
This is a prospective, open lable studies conducted in 115 hospital to compare between thromboectomy and Recombinant Tisue Plasminogen Activator only to evaluate the eficacy and safety of ...
Based on the results of recent randomized controlled trials, current international guidelines recommend the initiation of endovascular treatment within 6 hours of symptom onset for acute i...
Evidence regarding the role of early (
The study will be a multicentre, prospective, randomized, open label, blinded endpoint (PROBE) phase 3 trial (2 arm with 1:1 randomization) in ischemic stroke patients within 4.5 hours of ...
This study is a prospective, partly randomized, multi-center, Phase III, controlled trial, designed to show that the onset-to-puncture time (OPT) for good functional outcome (defined by mo...
Artery formed by the bifurcation of the BASILAR ARTERY. Branches of the posterior cerebral artery supply portions of the OCCIPITAL LOBE; PARIETAL LOBE; inferior temporal gyrus, brainstem, and CHOROID PLEXUS.
Surgical excision, performed under general anesthesia, of the atheromatous tunica intima of an artery. When reconstruction of an artery is performed as an endovascular procedure through a catheter, it is called ATHERECTOMY.
The artery formed by the union of the right and left vertebral arteries; it runs from the lower to the upper border of the pons, where it bifurcates into the two posterior cerebral arteries.
Endovascular reconstruction of an artery, which may include the removal of atheromatous plaque and/or the endothelial lining as well as simple dilatation. These are procedures performed by catheterization. When reconstruction of an artery is performed surgically, it is called ENDARTERECTOMY.
Subnormal intellectual functioning which originates during the developmental period. This has multiple potential etiologies, including genetic defects and perinatal insults. Intelligence quotient (IQ) scores are commonly used to determine whether an individual has an intellectual disability. IQ scores between 70 and 79 are in the borderline range. Scores below 67 are in the disabled range. (from Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, p28)
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 ...
