To evaluate the presence of serum protein biomarkers associated with the early phases of formation of carotid atherosclerotic plaques, label-free quantitative proteomics analyses were made for serum samples collected as part of The Cardiovascular Risk in Young Finns Study. Samples from subjects who had an asymptomatic carotid artery plaque detected by ultrasound examination (N = 43, Age = 30-45 years) were compared with plaque free controls (N = 43) (matched for age, sex, body weight and systolic blood pressure)...

It is often difficult to diagnose an intracranial aneurysm at the distal internal carotid artery by conventional magnetic resonance imaging. PURPOSE: We assessed the effectiveness of the local excitation technique, a new application for magnetic resonance imaging, to clarify the geometric structure of aneurysm and adjacent branches at the distal internal carotid artery. STUDY DESIGN: Two independent evaluators diagnosed 10 cases of suspected aneurysms at the distal internal carotid artery by T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging with application of local excitation, adding it to conventional time-of-flight-magnetic resonance angiography...

Treatment of blood blister-like aneurysm (BBA) is a challenge due to its unfavourable morphology, small size and the friable neck of BBA. In the management of ruptured BBA, coil placement can be achieved by stent-assisted coil embolisation. We propose to incorporate a new technique using a steam-shaped microcatheter to improve safety. A 59-year-old woman was transferred to our hospital and diagnosed with subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) due to a ruptured BBA of the left internal carotid artery (ICA) at the C2 portion...

OBJECTIVE: Cavernous sinus (CS) invasion is an unfavorable factor hindering remission of growth hormone (GH)-secreting pituitary adenomas. However, few data exist on aggressive surgical resection. The authors investigate the role of CS exploration for GH-secreting pituitary adenomas with CS invasion. METHODS: We classified 132 patients with GH-secreting pituitary adenomas invading CS into 4 groups. The patients underwent surgery using a microsurgical transsphenoidal approach (TSA) with assistance of an endoscope...

BACKGROUND: A variety of surgical techniques exist to manage long-gap esophageal atresia (LGEA), including gastric pull-up (GPU), colonic interposition (CI), jejunal interposition (JI), and distraction lengthening. Salvage reconstruction for late failure of any conduit type is a complex surgical problem fraught with technical difficulty and significant risk. Jejunal interposition can be used as a salvage procedure in the management of LGEA. However, the opposing requirements of conduit length and adequate perfusion make the procedure technically challenging...

Cerebrovascular diseases of ischemic origin still remain the leading cause of death and disability of the population. In acute cerebral discirculation conditions, anaerobic glycolysis is activated, ATP formation rate decreases, the ion pumps work is disrupted and superoxide radicals are formed. Eventually, ionic asymmetry leads to the cytotoxic and vasogenic brain edema. Therefore, it is extremely important to induce simultaneous (complex) effect of medications on the key mechanisms of neuronal damage in process of survival of brain cells during acute ischemic stroke...

BACKGROUND: The clinical course and optimal treatment strategy for asymptomatic aneurysms of the extracranial carotid artery (ECAA) are unknown. We report our single-center experience with conservative management of patients with an asymptomatic ECAA. METHODS: A search in our hospital records from 1998 to 2013 revealed 20 patients (mean age 52 years, SD 12.5) with 23 ECAA, defined as a 150% or more fusiform dilation or any saccular dilatation compared to the healthy internal carotid artery...

BACKGROUND Inflammatory activity of the artery can be assessed by measuring 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) uptake with positron emission tomography computed tomography (PET/CT). Improvement in vascular function after renal transplantation has been reported, but no studies have used 18F-FDG PET/CT to examine the changes in vascular inflammation. This study investigated the changes in the inflammatory activity in the carotid artery after renal transplantation in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). MATERIAL AND METHODS 18F-FDG PET/CT was performed before and at 4 months after transplantation...

OBJECTIVE: Macrophages play important roles in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, but their dynamics within plaques remain obscure. We aimed to quantify macrophage positional dynamics within progressing and regressing atherosclerotic plaques. APPROACH AND RESULTS: In a stable intravital preparation, large asymmetrical foamy macrophages in the intima of carotid artery plaques were sessile, but smaller rounded cells nearer plaque margins, possibly newly recruited monocytes, mobilized laterally along plaque borders...

INTRODUCTION: Haemorrhagic transformation is a major complication of acute ischaemic stroke (AIS). We sought to determine the predictors and clinical impact of intracranial haemorrhage (ICH) after revascularisation therapy. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective, single-centre study including 235 patients with AIS who underwent intravenous recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (IV-rtPA) therapy and/or endovascular treatment. A binary logistic regression model was used to determine the variables associated with ICH, parenchymal haematomas (PH), modified Rankin Scale (mRS) scores, and mortality...

The anterior clinoidal meningiomas often engulf /encase or compress Internal Carotid artery (ICA) and its branches, Optic nerve (ON) and structures passing through superior orbital fissure (SOF). The trans-sylvain route of excising tumour poses a difficulty in exposing and safeguarding encased vessels. In addition, it may jeopardize the bulging brain and stretched veins, especially in large tumors. The objective is to present an operative video to demonstrate the technique of 'centrifugal opening' and removal of anterior clinoidal meningiomas...

Vascular calcification contributes to clinical mortality and morbidity. One possible mechanism for vascular calcification is lack of functional osteoclast formation in atherosclerotic plaques. Here, we seek to discover novel regulators of osteoclastogenesis with the aim to reduce vascular calcification. We used quantitative proteomics and functional network analysis to identify novel proteins in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC)-derived osteoclast model. In the current studies we focus on novel proteins in osteoclast ruffled border, a plasma membrane contacting the bone surface during bone resorption...

BACKGROUND: Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are exposed to both traditional 'Framingham' and uremia related cardiovascular risk factors that drive atherosclerotic and arteriosclerotic disease, but these cannot be differentiated using conventional ultrasound. We used ultra-high-frequency ultrasound (UHFUS) to differentiate medial thickness (MT) from intimal thickness (IT) in CKD patients, identify their determinants and monitor their progression. METHODS: Fifty-four children and adolescents with CKD and 12 healthy controls underwent UHFUS measurements using 55-70MHz transducers in common carotid and dorsal pedal arteries...

Introduction: Prediction models for clinical outcome after carotid artery stenting or carotid endarterectomy could aid physicians in estimating peri- and postprocedural risks in individual patients. We aimed to identify existing prediction models for short- and long-term outcome after carotid artery stenting or carotid endarterectomy in patients with symptomatic or asymptomatic carotid stenosis, and to summarise their most important predictors and predictive performance. Patients and methods: We performed a systematic literature search for studies that developed a prediction model or risk score published until 22 December 2016...
