BACKGROUND: Intravenous contrast-enhanced ultrasonography is a recently developed technique for assessment of tissue perfusion, but has not been used for assessment of skeletal muscle perfusion. METHODS: We studied a 42-year-old woman in whom myonecrosis was suspected due to systemic vasculitis and ischemia. The biceps brachii (right) and quadriceps femoris (vastus medialis) on right-hand side and subsequently left-hand side were imaged. Intravenous bolus of activated perflutren lipid microspheres was injected and B-Flow color mode (brown color) was used within a selected region of interest to image the passage of contrast through muscle parenchyma throughout three cardiac cycles...

BACKGROUND: Medical treatment of cranio-cervical pain can be suboptimal in patients with internal carotid artery (ICA) dissection. We report the use of cervical sympathetic block for treatment of pain in two patients with ICA dissection. CASE REPORTS: A 58-year-old man and a 43-year-old woman presented with severe cranio-cervical pain associated with left and right ICA dissection confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging and cerebral angiography. Due to suboptimal control of pain with medical treatment, cervical sympathetic block was performed under fluoroscopic guidance using 20 ml of bupivacaine injected lateral to the posterior aspect of sixth vertebral body in both patients...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Rabbit models of intracranial aneurysms are frequently used in pre-clinical settings. This study aimed to demonstrate an alternative, extravascular method for creating elastase-induced aneurysms, and how ligation of the right common carotid arteries (RCCA) can impact flow redistribution into left CCA (LCCA). METHODS: Elastase-induced aneurysms in 18 New Zealand rabbits (4.14 ± 0.314 kg) were created by applying 3-5 U of concentrated elastase solution to the exterior of the right and left CCA roots (RCCA and LCCA)...

BACKGROUND: Mycotic aneurysms are a complication of infective endocarditis. Infection of left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) may lead to bacteremia and fever causing complications similar to those seen in patients with prosthetic valve endocarditis. Intracranial mycotic aneurysms are rare, and their presence is signaled by the development of subarachnoid hemorrhage in the setting of bacteremia and aneurysms located distal to the circle of Willis. CASE PRESENTATION: We present the case of a patient with a LVAD presenting with headache who is found to have an intracranial mycotic aneurysm through computed tomography angiography of the head...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The capillary index score (CIS) has been recently introduced as a metric for rating the collateral circulation of ischemic stroke patients. Multiple studies in the last five years have evaluated the correlation of good CIS with clinical outcomes and suggested the use of CIS in selecting patients for endovascular treatment. We performed a meta-analysis of these studies comparing CIS with clinical outcomes. METHODS: We conducted a computerized search of three databases from January 2011 to November 2015 for studies related to CIS and outcomes...
