This study tested the hypothesis that extracorporeal shock wave (ECSW) therapy could protect mouse brain from chronic cerebral hypoperfusion (CHP)-induced neuropathological changes in a bilateral carotid arterial stenosis (CAS) model. Adult-male C57BL/6 (B6) mice (n=36) were randomized into group 1 (sham-control), group 2 (CHP) and group 3 [CHP+ECSW (100 impulses at 0.15 mJ/mm2) on day 5, 10 and 15 after CHP induction]. By day 60 after CHP induction, the white matter lesion, protein expressions of inflammatory (TNF-α/NF-κB/iNOS), oxidative-stress (NOX-1/NOX-2/NOX-4/nitrotyrosine), angiogenesis (eNOS/CD31), apoptotic (Bax/caspase-3/PARP), fibrotic (Smad3/TGF-ß) and mitochondrial-damaged (cytosolic cytochrome-C) biomarkers were significantly higher in group 2 than in groups 1 and 3, and significantly higher in group 3 than in group 1, whereas the protein expressions of anti-apoptotic (Bcl-2), anti-fibrotic (BMP-2/Smad1/5), and mitochondrial-integrity (mitochondrial cytochrome-C) biomarkers showed an opposite pattern to inflammation among the three groups (all P<0...

An 84-year-old man, who presented lower limbs limb-shaking syndrome at orthostatism lasting a few seconds, was referred in our stroke unit. Magnetic resonance imaging showed an acute infarction in the right thalamus and the insular cortex, left extracranial carotid stenosis at 80%, and low flow in the right middle cerebral artery but did not explain limb-shaking syndrome symptomatology. We performed comparative positional brain perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), in the upright and in the supine position, to explore and localize hypoperfusion-endangered brain structures that may be involved in the presenting symptoms...

Murine chronic cerebral hypoperfusion (CCH) results in white matter (WM) injury and behavioral deficits. Pericytes influence blood-brain barrier (BBB) integrity and cerebral blood flow. Under hypoxic conditions, pericytes detach from perivascular locations increasing vessel permeability and neuronal injury. This study characterizes the time course of BBB dysfunction and pericyte coverage following murine experimental CCH secondary to bilateral carotid artery stenosis (BCAS). Mice underwent BCAS or sham operation...

BACKGROUND: In this study, the risk factors for stroke after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) were examined. In particular, the role of asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis (both unilateral and bilateral) as a predictor of in-hospital postoperative stroke was investigated. Finally, the trends surrounding in-hospital postoperative stroke from 1999 to 2011 also were examined. The purpose of the study was to appropriately identify patients at high risk for stroke after CABG and spark discussion about the perioperative management of such patients...

We report the case of a 4-year-old female with a primary extradural intramedullary atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT) leading to a middle cerebral artery (MCA) infarct and Froin's syndrome. She presented with a 6-pound weight loss over the previous week, as well as a decreased urinary output and an altered mental status. She underwent a brain MRI that revealed a left MCA infarct, mild ventriculomegaly, and bilateral internal carotid artery, M1, and A1 stenosis. An external ventricular drain (EVD) was placed due to increased intracranial pressure...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: White matter (WM) ischemic injury, a major neuropathological feature of cerebral small vessel diseases, is an important cause of vascular cognitive impairment in later life. The pathogenesis of demyelination after WM ischemic damage are often accompanied by microglial activation. Fingolimod (FTY720) was approved for the treatment of multiple sclerosis for its immunosuppression property. In this study, we evaluated the neuroprotective potential of FTY720 in a WM ischemia model...

Cilostazol is known to alleviate white matter demyelination due to chronic cerebral hypoperfusion in rodent models, although their pharmacological mechanisms remain unclear. In this study, we investigated the protective effect of cilostazol in relation to gene expression profile. Bilateral common carotid artery stenosis (BCAS) mice were treated with oral administration of cilostazol or placebo starting from a week after the surgery. Demyelination of the cingulum was compared between the 2 groups 2, 6, and 10 weeks after initial drug administration...

Subcortical vascular dementia(SVaD) is associated with white matter damage, lacunar infarction, and degeneration of cerebral microcirculation. Currently available mouse models can mimic only partial aspects of human SVaD features. Here, we combined bilateral common carotid artery stenosis (BCAS) with a hyperlipidaemia model in order to develop a mouse model of SVaD; 10- to 12-week-old apolipoprotein E (ApoE)-deficient or wild-type C57BL/6J mice were subjected to sham operation or chronic cerebral hypoperfusion with BCAS using micro-coils...

BACKGROUND: Intrathoracic carotid bifurcation is a rare vascular anomaly, with only 8 cases reported. This vascular anomaly was recently correlated with Klippel-Feil syndrome, a rare congenital disorder involving fusion of the cervical vertebrae. METHODS: A 70-year-old deaf mute man was admitted to our department because of right hemiparesis and right sensory disturbance. He displayed no abnormalities associated with Klippel-Feil syndrome. Diffusion-weighted imaging revealed acute multiple infarcts in bilateral hemispheres...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical treatment of radio-induced carotid stenosis (RICS) is challenging and burdened by an elevated risk of local complications. Carotid artery stenting (CAS) may be a suitable alternative. The best approach is yet to be defined. We reviewed the results of both techniques following selection based on better-suitability characteristics (anatomic and clinical). METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 38 patients treated for 43 RICS from a group of 1230 patients who had carotid interventions between 2008 and 2015 (5 bilateral)...

INTRODUCTION: Carotid artery stenosis influences CT perfusion (CTP) studies, sometimes manifesting as a false ischaemic penumbra (FIP). This study aims to estimate the incidence of FIP in patients with carotid artery stenosis, establish their relationship with the degree of stenosis, and measure quantitative and qualitative changes in CTP after carotid angioplasty and stenting (CAS). METHODS: Between October 2013 and June 2015, we prospectively selected 26 patients with carotid stenosis who underwent CAS, with CTP being performed 2-10 days before and after CAS...

Hypertension is a leading risk factor for vascular cognitive impairment and is strongly associated with carotid artery stenosis. In normotensive rats, chronic cerebral hypoperfusion induced by bilateral common carotid artery stenosis (BCAS) leads to cognitive impairment that is associated with impaired endothelium-dependent dilation in parenchymal arterioles (PAs). The aim of this study was to assess the effects of BCAS on PA function and structure in stroke prone spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRSP), a model of human essential hypertension...

OBJECTIVES: Chronic cerebral hypoperfusion (CCH) can result in vascular dementia and small vessel white matter ischemic injury. These findings have previously been demonstrated in a murine experimental model of CCH secondary to bilateral common carotid artery stenosis (BCAS). This study sought to elucidate the effects of CCH on recognition memory as assessed by the novel object recognition (NOR) test and histological analysis of the hippocampus and perirhinal cortex. METHODS: Studies were performed on ten-week-old male mice using bilateral 0...
