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...

Safety of Intravenous Milrinone for the Treatment of Subarachnoid Hemorrhage-induced Vasospasm

The aim of this study is to evaluate the tolerance of intravenous milrinone combined to the current standard treatment for cerebral vasospasm following subarachnoid hemorrhage. Assessment ...

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...

Protective effects of Astragaloside IV on delayed cerebral vasospasm in an experimental rat model of subarachnoid hemorrhage.

Delayed cerebral vasospasm is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). This study aimed to assess the effects of Astragaloside IV (AS-IV) on delaye...

Low Glasgow Coma Score In Traumatic Intracranial Hemorrhage Predicts Development Of Cerebral Vasospasm.

The exact mechanism, incidence and risk factors for cerebral vasospasm following traumatic intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) continues to be poorly characterized. The incidence of post-traumatic vasospasm...

Volumetric analysis of intracranial vessels: a novel tool for evaluation of cerebral vasospasm.

Together with other diagnostic modalities, computed tomography angiography (CTA) is commonly used to indicate endovascular vasospasm treatment after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), despite the fact tha...

CT Perfusion Imaging of Cerebral Microcirculatory Changes Following Subarachnoid Hemorrhage in Rabbits: Specific Role of Endothelin-1 Receptor Antagonist.

Cerebral vasospasm may lead to delayed ischemic neurological deficits following subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Endothelin (ET-1) is an important factor participating in cerebral vasospasm underlying S...

Intra-arterial Papaverine-Hydrochloride and Transluminal Balloon Angioplasty for the Neurointerventional Management of Delayed Onset Post Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage Vasospasm.

After subarachnoid hemorrhage delayed onset vasospasm can result in devastating ischemic stroke. The phenomenon of delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) is yet not fully understood and the correlation of an...

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.
