Eicosapentaenoic Acid Cerebral Vasospasm Therapy Study

Cerebral vasospasm following subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is the most common cause of morbidity and mortality. Recent studies indicate that Rho-kinase play an important role in the occurr...

Milrinone in Addition to Hyperdynamic Therapy in the Treatment of Vasospasm Following Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the usefulness of adding Milrinone to the current standard treatment for cerebral vasospasm.

Safety and Feasibility of Hypertonic Saline Solution After Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage:

Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) occurs after rupture of cerebral aneurysms. Treatment of SAH focuses on avoiding medical complications including cerebral vasospasm, which may result in limit...

Determinants of Vasospasm and Delayed Ischemic Deficits in Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

The risk of delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is associated with large cerebral artery vasospasm, but vasospasm is not a strong predictor for DCI. Assessm...

Clazosentan in Reducing Vasospasm-related Morbidity and All-cause Mortality in Adult Patients With Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage Treated by Surgical Clipping

The aim of this study is to demonstrate that clazosentan, administered as a continuous intravenous infusion at 5 mg/h until Day 14 post aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH), reduces t...

Milrinone-associated Cardiomyopathy and Arrhythmia in Cerebral Vasospasm.

Milrinone is an inotropic and vasodilatory drug proven safe for use in the treatment of cerebral vasospasm. Despite its reported safety profile, its use is not free of side effects. Milrinone-associat...

Transcranial Doppler Waveforms During Intra-aortic Balloon Pump Counterpulsation for Vasospasm Detection After Subarachnoid Hemorrhage.

Transcranial Doppler ultrasound is a standard screening tool for vasospasm after subarachnoid hemorrhage. Prevention of vasospasm-induced delayed cerebral ischemia after subarachnoid hemorrhage depend...

Endovascular treatment for cerebral vasospasm following aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage: predictors of outcome and retreatment.

Although endovascular therapy has been widely adopted for the treatment of cerebral vasospasm after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH), its effect on clinical outcomes remains incompletely unde...

Hyperperfusion after Clipping of Aneurysm: A Rare Entity.

Cerebral vasospasm is an uncontrollable and sometimes fatal complication occurring after subarachnoid hemorrhage. However, cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome is a rare complication after subarachnoid he...

Reduced Intravoxel Incoherent Motion Microvascular Perfusion Predicts Delayed Cerebral Ischemia and Vasospasm After Aneurysm Rupture.

Proximal artery vasospasm and delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) after cerebral aneurysm rupture result in reduced cerebral perfusion and microperfusion and significant morbidity and mortality. Intravoxe...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Constriction of arteries in the SKULL due to sudden, sharp, and often persistent smooth muscle contraction in blood vessels. Intracranial vasospasm results in reduced vessel lumen caliber, restricted blood flow to the brain, and BRAIN ISCHEMIA that may lead to hypoxic-ischemic brain injury (HYPOXIA-ISCHEMIA, BRAIN).

Bleeding into one or both CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES including the BASAL GANGLIA and the CEREBRAL CORTEX. It is often associated with HYPERTENSION and CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA.

A heterogeneous group of sporadic or familial disorders characterized by AMYLOID deposits in the walls of small and medium sized blood vessels of CEREBRAL CORTEX and MENINGES. Clinical features include multiple, small lobar CEREBRAL HEMORRHAGE; cerebral ischemia (BRAIN ISCHEMIA); and CEREBRAL INFARCTION. Cerebral amyloid angiopathy is unrelated to generalized AMYLOIDOSIS. Amyloidogenic peptides in this condition are nearly always the same ones found in ALZHEIMER DISEASE. (from Kumar: Robbins and Cotran: Pathologic Basis of Disease, 7th ed., 2005)

Pathological conditions of intracranial ARTERIES supplying the CEREBRUM. These diseases often are due to abnormalities or pathological processes in the ANTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY; MIDDLE CEREBRAL ARTERY; and POSTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY.

Radiography of the ventricular system of the brain after injection of air or other contrast medium directly into the cerebral ventricles. It is used also for x-ray computed tomography of the cerebral ventricles.
