The purpose of this study is to evaluate the role of propranolol as an alternative treatment for cavernous malformation in patients that may not be ideal candidates for surgery.
This nationwide multicenter prospective cohort study will collect the treatment information and outcomes of the patients with previously untreated cavernous malformations (U-CMs) in China ...
Cerebral Cavernous Malformation (CCM) is a cerebrovascular disease which can be either congenital in origin or sporadic and is characterized by the presence of isolated or multiple CCM les...
The cerebral arteriovenous malformations correspond to the formation of an entanglement of morphologically abnormal vessels called nidus, which shunt the blood circulation directly from th...
The study aims to demonstrate that extended course atorvastatin therapy reduces lesional iron deposition without increasing the risk of rebleeding (acute hemorrhage) in patients with cereb...
Surgery is the only therapeutic option for cerebral cavernous malformations (CCM) and is proposed, whenever possible, after haemorrhagic events, neurological symptoms, or epilepsy, radiosurgery being ...
Magnetic resonance (MR) thermography-guided laser interstitial thermal therapy, or stereotactic laser ablation (SLA), is a minimally invasive alternative to open surgery for focal epilepsy caused by c...
Cavernous malformations may be familial or nonfamilial. This systematic review compares the natural history of cavernous malformations in familial compared to non-familial cases.
Microsurgical resection of deep-seated cerebral cavernous malformations may result in a high rate of temporary and a lower, but nonetheless significant, rate of permanent disability. Use of trans-sulc...
Sporadic brain cavernous malformations commonly correlate with developmental venous anomalies; however, developmental venous anomalies may exist without cavernous malformations. Infratentorial locatio...
A spectrum of congenital, inherited, or acquired abnormalities in BLOOD VESSELS that can adversely affect the normal blood flow in ARTERIES or VEINS. Most are congenital defects such as abnormal communications between blood vessels (fistula), shunting of arterial blood directly into veins bypassing the CAPILLARIES (arteriovenous malformations), formation of large dilated blood blood-filled vessels (cavernous angioma), and swollen capillaries (capillary telangiectases). In rare cases, vascular malformations can result from trauma or diseases.
A widely used non-cardioselective beta-adrenergic antagonist. Propranolol has been used for MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; ARRHYTHMIA; ANGINA PECTORIS; HYPERTENSION; HYPERTHYROIDISM; MIGRAINE; PHEOCHROMOCYTOMA; and ANXIETY but adverse effects instigate replacement by newer drugs.
A microtubule-associated protein consisting of four ANKYRIN REPEATS and a C-terminal FERM DOMAIN. It links the CYTOSKELETON to CELL JUNCTIONS via integrin cytoplasmic domain-associated protein-1 and plays an important role in regulating cell proliferation and integrity of endothelial cell junctions. It is also involved in REACTIVE OXYGEN SPECIES metabolism. Mutations in the KRIT1 gene are associated with type I CEREBRAL CAVERNOUS MALFORMATIONS.
Bleeding within the CEREBRAL VENTRICLES. It is associated with intraventricular trauma, aneurysm, vascular malformations, hypertension and in VERY LOW BIRTH WEIGHT infants.
Abnormalities in the development of the CEREBRAL CORTEX. These include malformations arising from abnormal neuronal CELL PROLIFERATION or APOPTOSIS; abnormal neuronal migration; and abnormal establishment of cortical organization via neurite extension, synaptogenesis, or neuronal maturation. As well as mutations effecting these developmental processes directly, there are a variety of inborn metabolic errors, such as PEROXISOMAL DISORDERS and mitochondrial and pyruvate metabolic disorders which effect them secondarily and also exhibit these malformations. They are common causes of EPILEPSY and developmental delay and are often a component of multiple congenital anomalies.
