BACKGROUND: Prospective studies of unruptured aneurysms have shown very low rates of rupture for small aneurysms (<10 mm) and suggested that the risk of treatment outweighs benefit. However, common clinical practice shows that patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) frequently have small aneurysms. OBJECTIVE: To investigate trends in size and location of ruptured aneurysms over a 25-yr period. METHODS: A prospective, Institutional Review Board-approved database of all patients presenting to our institution with aSAH from 1991 to 2016 was analyzed...

BACKGROUND: In contemporary microneurosurgery reducing retraction-induced injury to the brain is essential. Self-retaining retractor systems are commonly used to improve visualization and decrease the repetitive microtrauma, but sometimes self-retaining retractor systems can be cumbersome and the force applied can cause focal ischemia or contusions. This may increase the morbidity and mortality. Here, we describe a technique of retraction using 10-0 sutures in the arachnoid. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the imaging and clinical results in patients where 10-0 suture retraction was used to aid the surgical procedure...

Aims: To develop a document by Brazilian Cardiovascular Imaging Department (DIC) and the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) to review and summarize the most recent evidences about the non-invasive assessment of patients with Chagas disease, with the intent to set up a framework for standardized cardiovascular imaging to assess cardiovascular morphologic and functional disturbances, as well as to guide the subsequent process of clinical decision-making. Methods and results: Chagas disease remains one of the most prevalent infectious diseases in Latin America, and has become a health problem in non-endemic countries...

Endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) is a common treatment for noncommunicating hydrocephalus. Although rare, vascular injury and traumatic pseudoaneurysm development during ETV have been reported. The authors present the case of a 13-year-old boy who underwent repeat ETV (rETV) for shunt and ETV failure, and who suffered an intraoperative subarachnoid hemorrhage due to iatrogenic injury to the basilar tip, with subsequent development of a pseudoaneurysm. Despite initial primary coil embolization, the aneurysm recurred and was definitively treated with flow diversion...

OBJECTIVE It has been suggested that increased body mass index (BMI) may confer a protective effect on patients who suffer from aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH). Whether the modality of aneurysm occlusion influences the effect of BMI on patient outcomes is not well understood. The authors aimed to compare the effect of BMI on outcomes for patients with aSAH treated with surgical clipping versus endovascular coiling. METHODS The authors retrospectively reviewed the outcomes for patients admitted to their institution for the management of aSAH treated with either clipping or coiling...

Recent studies have demonstrated that cytokines play an important role in the pathogenesis of intracranial aneurysm (IA). Tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) is an important proinflammatory cytokine, which was shown to influence the development of IA, but there is no research data from China. Hence, the purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between TNF-α polymorphisms and IA in China. The association of genetic variants of TNF-α gene expression was investigated in a Chinese population with IA...

The paper describes a clinical case of gigantic aneurysm of one of the coronary arteries. It considers the morphological and immunohistochemical characteristics of the wall of the blood vessel with the detected signs of coronaritis. The authors have determined that Kawasaki disease could be retrospectively diagnosed in early childhood.

INTRODUCTION: Coronary artery aneurysms (CAA) are rare. We present our experience with the surgical treatment of patients with CAAs. METHODS: Between March 2000 and October 2016, 15 patients with CAA underwent surgery. RESULTS: Mean age of patients was 60 ± 16 years and 47% (n = 7) were male. Kawasaki syndrome was present in two (13%) patients and 7% (n = 1) patients had Marfan syndrome. Isolated CAAs were found in 73% (n = 11) and involvement of multiple vessels was present in 27% (n = 4) of patients...

BACKGROUND: Individuals treated for abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) are high-risk patients in whom better risk prediction could improve survival. Contemporary serum lipid parameters, such as apolipoproteins and lipoprotein subfractions, may improve or complement the prognostic value of traditional serum lipids. The aim of this study was to ascertain the extended serum lipid profiles, long-term prognosis and their association in AAA patients. METHODS: Altogether 498 patients treated for AAAs and with available serum lipid values were retrospectively analysed...

Aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC), a locally benign aggressive lytic lesion of either primary or secondary origin, seldom involves the talus. Herein, we present a 25-year-old man with recurrent ABC of the talus after curettage and bone grafting, which was managed by total resection followed by filling the defect using fibular graft and finally tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis due to articular surface involvement. At 18 mo postoperatively, no recurrence was detected. Arthrodesis might be a good option in cases with recurrent ABC of the talus especially with articular surface involvement...

BACKGROUND: We report two patients with chronic postcraniotomy headache who showed rapid alleviation of pain after removal of titanium miniplates. CASE DESCRIPTION: (Case 1) A 26-year-old woman underwent a right frontal craniotomy and excision of the entire cerebral cavernous malformation. Eleven years later, she developed headache. The titanium plate was removed and the patient presented complete amelioration of headache. (Case 2) A 50-year-old man underwent an aneurysm clipping via the lateral supraorbital approach of the left side...

Introduction. We herein describe a case with a neck abscess due to non-typhoidal Salmonella (NTS). NTS habitually reside in our environment and colonize all animals including mammals. Colonizations of pigs, chickens, cows and sheep are important because food poisoning episodes in human are often associated with meat. Extra-intestinal infection due to NTS has numerous presentations and complications, with aortic aneurysms being common. Case presentation. A 26-year-old Japanese male complaining of left-sided neck swelling was referred to our hospital for a suspected deep neck abscess...

Introduction.Listeria monocytogenes is a rare etiology of infectious endocarditis with only 30 cases of prosthetic valve and about twice as many native valve infections described in the literature. We describe an unusual presentation of an endovascular embolic phenomenon with associated lower extremity mycotic aneurysm due to Listeria monocytogenes prosthetic aortic valve and aortic endograft infection. Case presentation. This is a case of an elderly gentleman with prior history of bioprosthetic aortic valve placement and aortic arch repair who was admitted with several weeks of constitutional symptoms and left lower leg pain...

Introduction. Lyme borreliosis is a multisystem tick-borne disease caused by Borrelia burgdorferi. Neurological manifestations are reported in up to 15 % of adult patients with Lyme disease, while the frequency among children is higher. The most common manifestations are painful radiculopathy, facial nerve paresis and lymphocytic meningitis. Epileptic seizures and cerebral vasculitis with stroke or aneurysms are very rare complications. Case presentation. We describe a paediatric patient with sensorineural auditory dysfunction, headache, fatigue and epileptic seizures as sequelae of meningoencephalitis/Lyme neuroborreliosis (LNB) caused by B...

Spontaneous dissection without an aneurysm limited to left gastric artery is fairly rare. Physicians should be alert to the possibility of this condition in patients with sudden-onset abdominal pain.
