Diabetes mellitus is associated with an elevated risk of cognitive impairment and dementia. Cerebrovascular disease and neurodegeneration are two major pathways that may explain the effect of diabetes on the brain and therefore deserve investigation. Neuroimaging provides an effective way to investigate the contribution of these pathways in vivo, guiding further mechanistic research and providing biomarkers for clinical correlation or interventional studies. In this paper, we present a narrative review of the state of play with neuroimaging evidence in studies of people with diabetes mellitus, how these data are useful in understanding mechanistic links between diabetes and brain impairment, and possible ways that the field may develop in the future...

The growing importance of INR has resulted in the need to define and promote professional standards of clinical practice. Several professional organizations have published guidelines recently for the neurointerventional treatment of cerebrovascular diseases, including technical and personal recommendations, but detailed definitions of technical and organizational conditions needed for the safe and effective performance of such treatments are lacking. To fill this gap ESNR, ESMINT and the UEMS Division for Neuroradiology established a working group, to develop a consensus paper on "Standards of Practice in Interventional Neuroradiology"...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: von Willebrand factor (vWF) plays an important role in thrombus formation during cerebrovascular damage. We sought to investigate the potential role of circulating vWF in recurrent cerebrovascular events and identify genetic contributors to variation in vWF level in an ischemic stroke population. METHODS: We analyzed the effect of circulating vWF on risk of recurrent stroke using survival models in the VISP trial (Vitamin Intervention for Stroke Prevention) and the use of vWF in reclassification over traditional factors...

Anaesthetic management of patients undergoing endovascular procedures for treating intracranial aneurysms or cerebrovascular malformations must consider a number of specific challenges, in addition to those associated with anaesthesia for other specialties. In addition to maintenance of physiological stability, manipulation of systemic and cerebral haemodynamic parameters may be required to treat any sudden unexpected catastrophic neurological events. A multidisciplinary group including neuro- and pediatric anaesthesiologists, interventional neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, and a clinical methodologist contributed to this document...

The use of angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) correlates with reduced onset and progression of Alzheimer's disease (AD). The mechanism depicting how ARBs, such as losartan, restore cerebrovascular and cognitive deficits in AD is unknown. Here, we propose a mechanism underlying losartan's benefits by selectively blocking the effects of Angiotensin IV (AngIV) at its receptor (AT4R) with divalinal in mice overexpressing the AD-related Swedish and Indiana mutations of the human amyloid precursor protein (APP mice) and wild-type mice...

What the best strategy is for nonculprit lesions in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients presenting with multivessel disease remains a clinical dilemma. Based on recent clinical studies suggesting that complete revascularization in the acute phase is beneficial, the European Society of Cardiology and American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association guidelines have been recently changed from class 3 discouragement to a class 2B recommendation concerning the treatment of the nonculprit lesions in the acute index procedure...

Patients with kidney disease (KD) are at increased risk for cerebrovascular disease (CVD) and CVD patients with KD have worse outcomes. We aimed to determine the representation of KD patients in major randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of CVD interventions. We searched MEDLINE for reports of major CVD trials published through February 9, 2017. We excluded trials that did not report mortality outcomes, enrolled fewer than 100 participants, or were subgroup, follow-up, or post-hoc analyses. Two independent reviewers performed study selection and data extraction...

BACKGROUND: Increasing age is the biggest risk factor for dementia, of which Alzheimer's disease is the commonest cause. The pathological changes underpinning Alzheimer's disease are thought to develop at least a decade prior to the onset of symptoms. Molecular positron emission tomography and multi-modal magnetic resonance imaging allow key pathological processes underpinning cognitive impairment - including β-amyloid depostion, vascular disease, network breakdown and atrophy - to be assessed repeatedly and non-invasively...
