BACKGROUND: Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) represent an option for the treatment of acute kidney injury (AKI). It is known that young stem cells are better than are aged stem cells at reducing the incidence of the senescent phenotype in the kidneys. The objective of this study was to determine whether AKI leads to premature, stress-induced senescence, as well as whether human umbilical cord-derived MSCs (huMSCs) can prevent ischaemia/reperfusion injury (IRI)-induced renal senescence in rats...

OBJECTIVES: Distal extent of repair in patients undergoing surgery for acute Type A aortic dissection (ATAAD) is controversial. Emerging hybrid techniques involving open and endovascular surgery have been reported in small numbers by select individual centres. A systematic review and meta-analysis was performed to investigate the outcomes following extended arch repair for ATAAD. A classification system is proposed of the different techniques to facilitate discussion and further investigation...

Stroke is a significant cause of death and disability in Singapore; in 2014, it was the fourth most common cause of death. Transient ischaemic attack (TIA) is defined as a transient episode of neurological dysfunction caused by focal brain, spinal cord or retinal ischaemia without evidence of acute infarction. The diagnosis of TIA/acute stroke needs to be considered in all patients who present with sudden focal neurological dysfunction. Prompt referral for assessment, neuroimaging and intervention provides the best chance for neurological recovery and/or minimising further neurological damage...

Acute spinal cord injury (SCI) has become epidemic in modern society. Despite advances made in the understanding of the pathogenesis and improvements in early recognition and treatment, it remains a devastating event, often producing severe and permanent disability. SCI has two phases: acute and secondary. Although the acute phase is marked by severe local and systemic events such as tissue contusion, ischaemia, haemorrhage and vascular damage, the outcome of SCI are mainly influenced by the secondary phase...

OBJECTIVES: Aortic coarctation presenting during adult life most frequently represents cases of re-coarctation, following previous transcatheter or surgical therapy, or missed cases of native coarctation. In the area of evolving endovascular therapy, we believe that there is still a place for durable open repair by means of resection and interposition grafting. We, therefore, evaluated our results in adult patients with primary aortic coarctation or complications of a previous coarctation repair...

Radical pleurectomy/decortication was performed in a patient with malignant pleural mesothelioma. During the surgery, the left subclavian artery was injured, and repaired via resection and anastomosis. However, the patient was diagnosed with paraplegia following extubation. After deliberate investigations, the mechanism of injury to the critical vascular zone of the spinal cord was determined. Here, we aim to draw attention to possible similar injuries.

OBJECTIVES: Aortic arch surgery is associated with substantial perioperative risks. New prostheses as well as novel perfusion techniques have been developed to reduce the risks of these procedures. The routine application of these new techniques warrants reassessment of risk factors of aortic arch repair. METHODS: Between April 2010 and December 2015, 199 patients [61% male, median age 63 years (interquartile range 52-70 years)] underwent total aortic arch repair in our institution...

OBJECTIVES: The frozen elephant trunk (FET) procedure using isolated selective cerebral perfusion (SCP) at moderate hypothermia is associated with an increased risk for spinal cord ischaemia. The aim of this study was to evaluate the benefit of a combined selective cerebral and low-flow lower body perfusion (CLBP) in a porcine model. METHODS: Twenty pigs (46 ± 5 kg) were cooled on cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) to 28°C. After aortic clamping and occlusion of the thoracic segmental arteries (TSAT4-T13), a pressure-controlled SCP (50 mmHg) was established for 90 min...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Glycine is a strychnine-sensitive inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system (CNS), especially in the spinal cord, brainstem, and retina. The objective of the present study was to investigate the potential neuroprotective effects of GlyT1 inhibitor N [3-(4'-fluorophenyl)-3-(4'-phenylphenoxy) propyl] sarcosine (NFPS) in the rat model of experimental stroke. METHODS: In vivo ischaemia was induced by transient middle cerebral artery occlusion (tMCAO)...

BACKGROUND: Controversy exists as to whether revascularisation of the left subclavian artery (LSA) confers improved outcomes in patients undergoing thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). Even though preemptive revascularisation of the LSA has theoretical advantages, including a reduced risk of ischaemic damage to vital organs, such as the brain and the spinal cord, it is not without risks. Current practice guidelines recommend routine revascularisation of the LSA in patients undergoing elective TEVAR where achievement of a proximal seal necessitates coverage of the LSA, and in patients who have an anatomy that compromises perfusion to critical organs...

OBJECTIVES: An aberrant right subclavian artery (ARSA) is one of most common congenital anomalies, but the coexistence of type B dissection and an ARSA is extremely rare. Repair of type B dissection poses a technical challenge due to an ARSA. We retrospectively reviewed our experience of surgical treatment of a complicated type B dissection with an ARSA. METHODS: From August 2010 to March 2014, 7 patients with chronic type B dissection with an ARSA underwent the stented elephant trunk procedure under hypothermic cardiopulmonary bypass in our centre...

BACKGROUND: Spinal cord ischemia (SCI) is one of the most feared complications following the repair of thoraco- abdominal aortic aneurysms (TAAA). Endovascular repair of TAAA is now possible with branched stent grafts, but spinal cord ischaemia rates are still unacceptably high. A number of techniques have been utilized to reduce these levels, however, SCI remains a challenge to endovascular repair of TAAA. The use of sac perfusion branches aims to reduce the incidence of this catastrophic complication...

OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE: Cerebral vasculitis (CV) is a rare described complication of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Although the most frequent neurological manifestations of RA are peripheral neuropathy and cervical spinal cord compression due to subluxation of the cervical vertebrae, CV can be seen especially in patients with seropositive and long-standing RA. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: We report two cases of CV associated with RA. Both patients had no extraarticular manifestations and RA clinics were under control...

BACKGROUND: Repair of extensive aortic disease may be associated with spinal cord ischaemia (SCI). Here we test if levels of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers for neuronal injury are altered in patients with SCI after advanced endovascular repair in extensive aortic disease. METHODS: CSF was sampled for up to 48 h in ten patients undergoing endovascular aortic repair and analyzed for the axonal damage markers total-tau (T-tau) and neurofilament light (NFL). RESULTS: Six of ten patients developed SCI (clinically present within 3-6 h)...

The physiological metabolite, lactate and the two-pore domain leak potassium channel, TREK1 are known neuroprotectants against cerebral ischaemia. However, it is not known whether lactate interacts with TREK1 channel to provide neuroprotection. In this study we show that lactate increases TREK1 channel activity and hyperpolarizes CA1 stratum radiatum astrocytes in hippocampal slices. Lactate increases open probability and decreases longer close time of the human (h)TREK1 channel in a concentration dependent manner...
