BACKGROUND: No data is available for brain low mechanical index (low-MI) contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS). This study aimed to assess low-MI CEUS for cerebral ischemia in rats. METHODS: Twenty adult Wistar rats were divided to the brain ischemia (n=12) and sham (n=8) groups. A Logiq E9 (GE; ML6-15 probe) was used. Bolus injection of SonoVue (Bracco) at 3.6 ml/kg was performed. Cerebral perfusion was evaluated using time to peak (TTP) and area under the curve (AUC) of time-intensity curves (TIC)...

INTRODUCTION: Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) have been reported to predict prognosis of acute pulmonary embolism (PE). However, the prognostic value of NLR and PLR remained inconsistent between studies. The aim of this meta-analysis was to assess the prognostic role of NLR and PLR in acute PE. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: We systematically searched Pubmed, Embase, Web of Science and CNKI for relative literature up to March 2017...

BACKGROUND: Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a leading cause of mortality in patients with cancer. Outcomes, including mortality data, in the cancer population are limited in those with calf deep vein thrombosis (CDVT) compared to individuals with proximal deep vein thrombosis. AIM: To assess the prognosis among patients with active cancer and CDVT. METHODS: Single institution inception cohort of cancer-associated CDVT patients who presented with thrombosis distal to popliteal level confirmed objectively by ultrasound...

OBJECTIVE: This study aims to investigate the clinical value of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEU) before temporary inferior vena cava filter (IVCF) recovery in patients with deep venous thrombosis, in order to provide ultrasound signs for the recovery of IVCF in clinical practice. METHODS: The CEU manifestations of patients with deep vein thrombosis before temporary IVCF recovery were retrospectively analyzed. With the manifestations of digital subtraction angiography (DSA) or results of the surgical recovery of IVCF as the standard, the detection rate of a thrombus in IVCF was compared between conventional ultrasound and CEU; and the role of CEU in detecting complications of IVCF was analyzed...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of balloon angioplasty and selective stenting in treatment of symptomatic central vein occlusive lesions (CVOL) in patients with upper extremity hemodialysis access. METHODS: Seventy-four hemodialysis patients with symptomatic CVOL underwent endovascular therapy between March 2014 and November 2015. Both the primary and secondary patency rates were analyzed by the Kaplan-Meier plot method...

BACKGROUND: The extent of calcium volume in the carotid arteries of contrast-based Computer Tomography (CT) is a valuable indicator of stroke risk. This study presents an automated, simple and fast calcium volume computation system. Since the high contrast agent can sometimes obscure the presence of calcium in the CT slices, it is therefore necessary to identify these slices before the corrected volume can be estimated. METHODS: The system typically consists of segmenting the calcium region from the CT scan into slices based on Hounsfield Unit-based threshold, and subsequently computing the summation of the calcium areas in each slice...

BACKGROUND: Aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of pedal arch status and direct-angiosome revascularization (DAR) on clinical outcomes in diabetic patients with foot wounds undergoing endovascular revascularization. METHODS: Between January 2014 and June 2015 93 diabetic patients with foot wounds underwent endovascular revascularization of at least one below-the-knee vessel. Patients were divided into three groups according to the pedal arch status: complete pedal arch (CPA), incomplete pedal arch (IPA) and absent pedal arch (APA)...

BACKGROUND: Rickettsia was suggested as a possible etiology of Buerger's disease (BD) in the 1980s but this suggestion was never ruled out or proven. Recently, we found evidence of Rickettsia by polymerase chain reaction in 3 out of 25 biopsy samples from the amputated limb of a young man diagnosed with BD. The aim of this paper was to investigate the presence of anti-rickettsial antibodies in the sera of BD patients. METHODS: To detect the IgG class antibody against Rickettsia rickettsii, which has cross reactions with the spotted fever group (RSFG), and Rickettsia typhi, which has cross reactions with typhus fever group, the sera of patients and controls were diluted to 1:64 and analyzed by indirect micro fluorescence immunoassay (MIF)...

BACKGROUND: Vascular complications are an important cause of morbidity in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). Endothelial dysfunction is an early marker of atherosclerosis and has already been shown in macrocirculation of diabetic patients; however, data on endothelial function of microcirculation is scarce. Our aim was to evaluate endothelial function in macro- and microcirculation and their interrelationship in patients with type 1 and 2 DM. METHODS: The study included 30 patients with type 1 DM, 30 patients with type 2 DM and 25 healthy controls...

BACKGROUND: Intrauterine growth retardation and prematurity at birth constitute risk factors for future cardiovascular adverse events. Some previous reports have highlighted that subjects born preterm may develop peripheral arterial dysfunction. However, central (aortic) arterial distensibility has not yet been fully investigated in these subjects. METHODS: Sixty subjects were enrolled: thirty were high grade ex-preterm subjects (10 males [M] and 20 females [F], aged 17-28, mean 20...

BACKGROUND: This study compares the outcome 5 years after treatment of varicose veins with endovenous radiofrequency ablation (RFA), endovenous laser ablation (EVLA), ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy (UGFS) or high ligation and stripping (HL/S) by assessing technical efficacy, clinical recurrence and the rate of reoperations. METHODS: Five hundred patients (580 legs) with Great Saphenous Vein (GSV) reflux and varicose veins were randomized to one of the 4 treatments...

BACKGROUND: This study aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety of ultrasound-accelerated catheter-directed thrombolysis (UACDT) in the treatment of upper extremity deep vein thrombosis (UEDVT). METHODS: We conducted a prospective, observational cohort study of consecutive patients with acute UEDVT with low-dose UACDT using the Ekosonic® Endovascular System (EKOS Corporation, Bothell, WA, USA) at a single center from September 2012 until October 2014. Overall, sixteen patients (11 males and 6 females, age range 18 to 70 years, mean age, 45...
