Isolated paralysis of hypoglossal nerve is uncommon, generally being associated with other neuropathies. A careful differential diagnosis is necessary to recognize the underlying diseases, some of which can be life-threatening. The authors report a patient of an 80-year-old woman presenting with an isolated hypoglossal palsy, mimicking a tongue neoplasm. Through a careful clinical workup and thanks to the aid of the imaging, it was possible to identify the presence of signal alterations due to a subacute denervation of the affected hemitongue and to exclude the presence of a tumor...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Intracranial atherosclerosis is a common cause of stroke worldwide. It results in ischemic stroke due to different mechanisms including artery-to-artery embolism, in situ thrombo-occlusion, occlusion of perforating arteries, and hemodynamic failure. In this review, we present an overview of current treatment and imaging modalities in intracranial atherosclerotic stenosis. METHODS: PubMed was searched for relevant articles in English that evaluated the treatment and imaging of intracranial atherosclerotic stenosis (ICAS)...

REVIEW
Alessandro Fulgenzi, Maria Elena Ferrero
Hepatic veno-occlusive disease (VOD), also known as sinusoidal obstruction syndrome (SOS), represents the most frequent complication in patients in early phase following hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation (HSCT). In its severe form, VOD/SOS can be associated with multiorgan failure and with a mortality rate >80% by day +100. Defibrotide (DF) (a mixture of 90% single-stranded phosphodiester oligonucleotides and 10% double-stranded phosphodiester oligonucleotides derived from controlled depolarization of porcine intestinal mucosal DNA) has been proposed for the treatment of SOS due to its ability to restore thrombo-fibrinolytic balance and protect endothelial cells...

PURPOSE: Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has been associated with large incidence of ischemic events, whose sources are still unclear. In fact, sub-acute complications cannot be directly related to the severity of the calcification in the host tissues, nor with catheter manipulation during the implant. A potential cause could be local flow perturbations introduced by the implantation approach, resulting in thrombo-embolic consequences. In particular, contrary to the surgical approach, TAVI preserves the presence of the native leaflets, which are expanded in the paravalvular space inside the Valsalva sinuses...

The prevention of post-operative risk of venous thrombo-embolism (VTE) is of fundamental importance, but preventive methods have progressed with the introduction of direct oral anticoagulants (DOAC), the development of ambulatory surgery and enhanced recovery programs (ERP) after surgery. Surgery is, inherently a trigger for venous thrombo-embolic disease, as is prolonged immobilization. However, the risk of VTE is very low following ambulatory surgery, especially in this selected population. ERP, consists of a set of measures to optimize the patient's peri-operative management while reducing length of stay, costs and morbidity and mortality; one measure is the encouragement of early ambulation...

INTRODUCTION: Mechanical circulatory support (MCS) therapy is associated with the improvement of long-term prognosis in patients with end-stage heart failure. For years it has been used as a bridge to transplant. However, more recently it is even being used as a destination therapy. Recently, clinicians have identified common MCS therapy-associated complications: pump thrombosis, bleeding, and hemolysis. These complications are very challenging with regard to both diagnosis and management...

In Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF), hemorrhagic manifestations are common but thrombotic events are uncommonly reported, despite the wide range of increased procoagulant activity during Dengue Fever illness. We report a case of a 55-year-old man of Asian Indian ethnicity who developed large vein thrombotic event -Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and Pulmonary Embolism (PE) in the acute phase of DHF. His condition was further complicated by associated thrombocytopenia. The etiological connections between dengue viral infection with thrombocytopenia, DVT/PE and abnormal thrombophilia profile as well as the treatment dilemmas posed in treating a patient of DF with hemorrhagic manifestations and associated DVT/PE, and the role of eltrombopag are discussed...

Carotid artery dissection (CAD) is a frequent cause of stroke, accounting for up to 25% of all ischemic strokes in young and middle-aged patients.(1,2) It may be traumatic or spontaneous, with multi-factorial etiology. A tear in the arterial wall causes intrusion of blood within its layers, producing intra-luminal stenosis, or aneurysmal dilatation.(3) Thrombo-embolism arising from this anatomic disruption has been postulated as the essential stroke mechanism in CAD.(4) Bilateral internal carotid artery dissection (ICAD) has been rarely reported...

Mitral annular calcification (MAC) has been considered a predisposition and an association of thrombo-embolic disease. Superimposed thrombus on MAC is under-appreciated as a potential cause of systemic thrombo-embolism. This report describes an elderly gentleman, who had recurrent cerebral embolism and in one of the episodes, a large mobile thrombus was detected on the ventricular surface of calcified mitral annulus. The thrombus disappeared after initiation of anti-coagulation.

The latest statistics from the 2016 heart disease and stroke statistics update shows that cardiovascular disease is the leading global cause of death, currently accounting for more than 17.3 million deaths per year. Type II diabetes is also on the rise with out-of-control numbers. To address these pandemics, we need to treat patients using an individualized patient care approach, but simultaneously gather data to support the precision medicine initiative. Last year the NIH announced the precision medicine initiative to generate novel knowledge regarding diseases, with a near-term focus on cancers, followed by a longer-term aim, applicable to a whole range of health applications and diseases...

Placental masses are uncommonly identified at the time of obstetric ultrasound evaluation. Understanding the pathologies presenting as placental masses is key for providing a differential diagnosis and guiding subsequent management, which may include additional imaging with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Potential benign entities include chorioangiomas and teratomas. Larger chorioangiomas can cause fetal cardiovascular issues from volume overload. Placental mesenchymal dysplasia has an association with fetal anomalies and detailed fetal evaluation should be performed when it is suspected...

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a cardio-pulmonary disorder that may involve multiple clinical conditions and can complicate the majority of cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. Its definition is an increase in mean pulmonary artery pressure (mPAP) \hbox{$\geqslant $} ⩾ 25 mmHg at rest, leading to right heart failure and ultimately death. The clinical classification of pulmonary hypertension (PH) categorizes PH into groups which share similar pathophysiological and hemodynamic characteristics and treatments...

INTRODUCTION: Morbidity and mortality from venous thrombo-embolism (VTE) remains a significant problem for trauma and medical patients and there are established guidelines for prophylaxis in these patients. However, the efficacy and safety of VTE prophylaxis in thermally injured patients continue to be elusive as it has never been studied in a prospective, randomized fashion. Selective use of VTE prophylaxis, for high risk patients, is practiced by some burn units even if objective evidence is lacking for majority of risk factors enunciated in burn patients...
