BACKGROUND Primary intraventricular hemorrhage (PIVH) is an uncommon type of intracerebral hemorrhage. Owing to its rarity, the clinical and radiological factors affecting outcomes in patients with PIVH have not been widely studied. MATERIAL AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 112 patients (mean age 53 years) treated for PIVH at our institution from January 2004 to December 2014. Clinical and radiological parameters were analyzed 3 months after initial presentation to identify factors associated with clinical outcomes, as assessed by the Glasgow Outcome Scale (favorable ≥4, unfavorable <4)...

Subclavian artery aneurysm is usually operated under general anesthesia (GA), but in specific situations, it can also be conducted under regional anesthesia (RA) such as cervical epidural anesthesia (CEA). A 48-year-old male presented with chief complaint of progressive swelling in the right side of the neck for the past 3 months following trauma. He was diagnosed as subclavian artery aneurysm, and surgical intervention was advised. He had previous history of angina 4 months back for which tablet aspirin 75 mg and tablet clopidogrel 75 mg once daily was prescribed...

OBJECTIVE Diagnosing nosocomial meningitis (NM) in neurosurgical patients is difficult. The standard CSF test is not optimal and when it is obtained, CSF cultures are negative in as many as 70% of cases. The goal of this study was to develop a diagnostic prediction rule for postoperative meningitis using a combination of clinical, laboratory, and CSF variables, as well as risk factors (RFs) for CNS infection. METHODS A cross-sectional study was performed in 4 intensive care units in Medellín, Colombia. Patients with a history of neurosurgical procedures were selected at the onset of febrile symptoms and/or after an increase in acute-phase reactants...

Rupture of the free wall of the left ventricle with the formation of a false aneurysm (pseudoaneurysm, PA) - is a rare complication of acute myocardial infarction. Given the high risk of rupture of the PA and other life-threatening consequences (progressive heart failure, thromboembolic events), as well as the absence of pathognomonic signs and the difficulty in determining treatment strategy (feasibility and timing of surgery), early diagnosis of this complication appears to be especially important. We present here an overview of literature data on prevalence, specific features of diagnostics, and problems related to selection of method of treatment of PA...

Described herein is an 84-year-old woman, the oldest reported, with severe pulmonic stenosis who underwent a highly successful pulmonic valvotomy at age 77 and highly unsuccessfully attempted percutaneous pulmonic valve implantation at age 84. During the 84 years she developed nearly all clinical and morphologic consequence of pulmonic stenosis, including heavy calcification of the pulmonic valve, heavy calcification of the tricuspid valve annulus, severe right ventricular wall thickening without ventricular cavity dilation, aneurysm of the pulmonary truck, multiple focal ventricular wall scars without narrowing of the epicardial coronary arteries, wall thickening and luminal narrowing of the intramural coronary arteries, and extremely low 12-lead QRS electrocardiographic voltage...

Transcatheter closure of perimembranous ventricular septal defects (pmVSDs) is a well-established procedure. Recently, Amplatzer duct occluders (ADO) I and II have been reported to close large series of pmVSDs successfully (off-label use). ADOs are economical compared with the standard Amplatzer VSD occluders, a major consideration in developing countries with low-budget programs. We report closure of symptomatic, hemodynamically significant pmVSDs using the ADOI and ADOII devices. Although there are no set criteria for choosing between ADOI and ADOII, the former's price tag includes snare and long sheath...

To determine the correlation exists between ventricular septal defect (VSD) and ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm (RSVA). Methods: Between September 2003 and April 2014, 80 RSVA patients underwent surgical repair. These patients were retrospectively divided into two groups: the VSD group (38 cases) and the non-VSD group (42 cases).  Results: Rupture points of SVA originated more frequently in the right coronary sinus (RCS) of patients in the VSD group than those in the non-VSD group (p=0.002). In the VSD group, more than 92...

BACKGROUND: The association between external ventricular drainage (EVD) and aneurysm rerupture is still a controversial issue. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of published series reporting data of EVD placement in aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) with the aim to evaluate the relationship between ventricular drainage and aneurysm rebleeding. METHOD: PRISMA/MOOSE guidelines were followed. The Newcastle-Ottawa Scale was used to assess the quality of the studies...

Interventricular membranous septal (IVMS) aneurysm is a rare condition with no accurate incidence. It is known to be associated with 0.3 % of congenital heart disease and 19 % of ventricular septal defects. IVMS aneurysm is often asymptomatic but can be complicated with right ventricular obstruction, rupture, thromboembolism, and conduction defects. Clinicians and radiologist should be aware about this rare clinical entity and evaluation of any possible underlying cardiac abnormalities should be performed. Conservative management with close follow up is the mainstay of management in the absence of complication...

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...
