Correlation between pre-admission blood pressure and outcome in a large telestroke cohort.

Telemedicine rapidly connects patients, with acute ischemic stroke symptoms, with neurovascular specialists for assessment to reduce chemical thrombolysis delivery times. Management of AIS includes maintaining target systolic blood pressures (SBP). In this retrospective study, we assess the efficacy of the telestroke (TS) system at a primary stroke center and the prognostic value of SBP throughout...

The effect of length of follow-up on substantial clinical benefit thresholds in patients undergoing surgery for cervical degenerative myelopathy.

Patient-reported outcome measures are increasingly used to access pain, disability, physical function, and mental status to quantify effectiveness of surgical intervention in cervical myelopathy, yet each score has little meaning without established thresholds linked to clinical benefit. We set out to develop thresholds for substantial clinical benefit (SCB) in patients undergoing surgery for cerv...

Efficacy of Thyrotropin-Releasing Hormone Analog for Protracted Disturbance of Consciousness due to Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage.

The efficacy of thyrotropin-releasing hormone tartrate (TRH-T) for treating prolonged disturbance of consciousness due to aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) remains unclear. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether TRH-T was really effective, and what was the recovery factor when it was valid. This was a retrospective study of a single facility.

Clinical Characteristics of Borderzone Infarction in Egyptian Population.

In this research we wanted to highlight the importance of defining Borderzone infarctions (BZI) as a separate subtype in stroke classifications. We thus studied cases of isolated BZI, small vessel disease (SVD), and large vessel disease (LVD), to identify their points of similarities and difference in a sample of Egyptian patients.

Contralateral Approach Based on a Preoperative 3-Dimensional Virtual Osteotomy Technique for Anterior Circulation Aneurysms.

Our objective was to review 15 consecutive patients with anterior circulation aneurysms managed through a contralateral approach. Individualized surgical simulation using three-dimensional (3D) imaging was adopted to enable safe performance of clipping surgery.

Mean treatment cost of incident cases of penile cancer for privately insured patients in the United States.
