PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Cerebral cavernous malformations (CCMs) are common vascular abnormalities often discovered on imaging as an incidental finding. The most common clinical presentations of CCMs include seizure, headache, focal neurological deficits, and intracranial hemorrhage. This article discusses the most recent guidelines including imaging diagnostic criteria and radiographic standards of CCMs and reviews the utility of currently available imaging techniques. RECENT FINDINGS: Gradient echo T2*-weighted imaging and susceptibility-weighted imaging are the recommended imaging protocols for evaluation of suspected CCMs...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Small studies have suggested that Marfan syndrome is associated with a number of cerebrovascular complications. We sought to determine whether a clinical diagnosis of Marfan syndrome is associated with a higher prevalence of cerebrovascular diseases than the general population by performing a case-control study of hospitalized patients in the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS). METHODS: Using the 2000-2012 NIS, we performed a case-control study matching cases of Marfan syndrome to controls without such a diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Novel anticoagulations (NOACs) are increasingly prescribed for the prevention of stroke in premenopausal women with atrial fibrillation. Small studies suggest NOACs are associated with a higher risk of abnormal uterine bleeds than vitamin K antagonists (VKAs). Because there is no direct empirical evidence on the benefit/risk profile of rivaroxaban compared to VKAs in this subgroup, we synthesize available indirect evidence, estimate decision uncertainty on the treatments, and assess whether further research in premenopausal women is warranted...

Brain hemorrhages are rare complications of acute methanol poisoning. There is a debate on association of brain hemorrhage in methanol toxicity and application of systemic anticoagulation during hemodialysis (HD). A 70-year-old male presented to us with severe metabolic acidosis and a methanol level of 7.6 mg/dL. Ethanol and folinic acid were administered, and HD was performed. Brain computed tomography (CT) scan which was normal on presentation showed extensive bilateral subcortical supratentorial hypodensities on the 3(rd) day after commencing the treatment...

BACKGROUND: The preferred treatment for intracranial hemangioblastomas is surgical resection with or without preoperative embolization, however, embolization remains controversial due to risks such as distal tip entrapment, vascular injury during navigation, and embolic agent migration. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 54-year-old woman was admitted for surgical resection and preoperative embolization of a cerebellar hemangioblastoma. Although experience using Onyx with detachable and nondetachable tip microcatheters has been well reported in a variety of clinical circumstances, we describe the first case of a presurgical embolization of an intra-axial tumor using a second-generation detachable-tip microcatheter and a nonadhesive liquid embolic agent...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Intrahospital time delays significantly affect the neurological outcome of stroke patients with large-vessel occlusion. This study was conducted to determine whether a one-stop management can reduce intrahospital times of patients with acute large-vessel occlusion. METHODS: In this observational study, we report the first 30 consecutive stroke patients imaged and treated in the same room. As part of our protocol, we transported patients with a National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale score of ≥10 directly to the angio suite, bypassing multidetector computed tomography (CT)...

Hantavirus (HV) infection, which underlies hantavirus hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome and hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, remains to be a severe clinical challenge. Here, we synthesized small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) that target the encoding sequences of HV strain 76-118, and validated their inhibitory role in virus replication in HV-infected monkey kidney Vero E6 cells. A chimeric protein, 3G1-Cκ-tP, consisting of a single-chain antibody fragment (3G1) against the HV surface envelop glycoprotein, the constant region of human immunoglobulin κ chain (Cκ), and truncated protamine (amino acids 8-29, tP), was further generated...

BACKGROUND: Anterior and posterior circulation atherosclerosis differ in vascular risk factors and stroke mechanisms. However, few studies have compared the pathological features between these lesions. Using a series of intracranial artery specimens, we characterized the intracranial atherosclerotic lesions and compared pathological features among different arteries of the intracranial vasculature. METHODS: Intracranial large arteries of 32 consecutively recruited autopsy cases of Chinese adults aged 45 years or older were examined pathologically using routine histology and immunostaining, to characterize the pathological features of the atherosclerotic lesions...

BACKGROUND: The treatment of acute ischemic stroke with recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA) has become the mainstay of treatment, but its use carries a risk of subsequent intracranial hemorrhage (ICH). Guidelines have been developed to aid in the selection of the appropriate candidates to treat with rtPA to reduce this risk. We present a case of a stroke patient who was an appropriate candidate and was treated with rtPA who experienced a fatal subarachnoid hemorrhage due to a ruptured mycotic aneurysm (MA)...

Intracranial arterial aneurysms (IAAs) are locally abnormal dilations of the cerebral arteries and often result in subarachnoid hemorrhages (SAH). Genetic, molecular and cellular mechanisms of sporadic IAAs forms are poorly understood. In this study, we investigate the association between mothers against decapentaplegic homolog 3 (SMAD3) genotypes and the risk of sporadic intracranial arterial aneurysms among the Chinese Han population. A case-control study was conducted examining 330 IAA patients and 313 controls...
