Aortic dissection is a life-threatening rare condition that may virtually present by any organ system dysfunction, the nervous system included. Acute cerebral infarction among multiple other neurological and non-neurological presentations is part of this acute aortic syndrome. Rapid and correct diagnosis is of extreme importance keeping in mind the possibility of thrombolytic treatment if a patient with a suspected ischemic stroke arrives to the Emergency Department within a 4.5-h window after symptom onset...

Limited data exist on human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) resistance in patients who are not responding to protease inhibitor (PI)-based regimens in resource-limited settings. This study assessed resistance profiles in adults across South Africa who were not responding to PI-based regimens. pol sequencing was undertaken and submitted to the Stanford HIV Drug Resistance Database. At least 1 major PI mutation was detected in 16.4% of 350 participants. A total of 53.4% showed intermediate resistance to darunavir/ritonavir, whereas high-level resistance was not observed...

Operative mortality of Stanford type A aortic dissection( AAD) repair with previous cardiac surgery is high, especially with previous coronary artery bypass grafting. We report an extremely rare case of AAD related to the PAS-Port system. A 68-year-old male patient on dialysis was admitted to our hospital with a diagnosis of AAD. Half a year before he had undergone off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting using PAS-Port system for a proximal anastomosis of a vein graft. Urgent graft replacement of the ascending aorta was performed, and the proximal anastomotic site of the vein graft was attached to the prosthetic graft...

An 85-year-old woman was hospitalized by emergency for an acute Stanford type A aortic dissection. Computed tomography showed a primary entry on the ascending aorta and pericardial effusion. Although her hemodynamics was unstable due to cardiac shock, her family wished no open surgery considering her age and frailty. A couple of days later, her condition became stabilized with antihypertensive therapy. Since the dissection was limited within the ascending aorta, closure of the entry with the stentgraft was considered appropriate and much less invasive as compared with an open surgery...

BACKGROUND: Stanford type A acute aortic dissection (A-AAD) extends to the brachiocephalic branches in some patients. After ascending aortic replacement, a remaining re-entry tear in the distal brachiocephalic branches may act as an entry and result in a patent false lumen in the aortic arch. However, the effect of brachiocephalic branch re-entry concomitant with A-AAD remains unknown.Methods and Results:Eighty-five patients with A-AAD who underwent ascending aortic replacement in which both preoperative and postoperative multiple-detector computed tomography (MDCT) scans could be evaluated were retrospectively studied...

AIMS: Acute aortic dissection (AD) requires immediate treatment, but is a diagnostic challenge. We studied how often AD was missed initially, which patients were more likely to be missed and how this influenced patient management and outcomes. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study including 200 consecutive patients with AD as the final diagnosis, admitted to a tertiary hospital between 1998 and 2008. The first differential diagnosis was identified and patients with and without AD included were compared...

PURPOSE: The purposes of this study are to determine the prevalence of specific postoperative CT findings following Stanford type A aortic dissection repair in the early postoperative period and to determine if these postoperative findings are predictive of adverse clinical outcome. METHODS: Patients who underwent type A dissection repair between January 2012 and December 2014 were identified from our institutional cardiac surgery database. Postoperative CT exams within 1 month of surgery were retrospectively reviewed to determine sizes and attenuation of mediastinal, pericardial, and pleural fluid, and the presence or absence of pneumomediastinum, pneumothorax, or lung consolidation...

Diagnosis of aortic dissection complicating cerebral ischemic stroke is difficult. A 60-year-old patient presented at an emergency department of a hospital with a sudden development of left-sided weakness, but without chest pain. During administration of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator with diagnosis of cerebral infarction, he developed symptomatic hypotension and was transferred to our hospital. His chest computed tomography revealed Stanford type A aortic dissection. Replacement of the ascending aorta and aortic arch was successfully performed on the 4th day...

The ARUBA trial (2014) concluded that medical management alone is superior to medical management plus interventional therapy for the treatment of unruptured brain arteriovenous malformations (bAVMs). This sparked considerable controversy among involved healthcare providers. Here, we evaluated the impact of ARUBA on the volume, type, and treatment modality of bAVMs referred to a large tertiary care center. This was achieved by conducting a retrospective review of a prospectively maintained database of all bAVMs treated at Stanford Health Care and Stanford Children's Health from January 2012 through July 2015...

BACKGROUND: The mosquito Aedes aegypti (L.) is a major vector of viral diseases like dengue fever, Zika and chikungunya. Aedes aegypti exhibits high morphological and behavioral variation, some of which is thought to be of epidemiological significance. Globally distributed domestic Ae. aegypti have often been grouped into (i) the very pale variety queenslandensis and (ii) the type form. Because the two color forms co-occur across most of their range, there is interest in understanding how freely they interbreed...

BACKGROUND: Because increased age is a strong independent predictor of mortality and morbidity, surgery for octogenarians with Stanford type A aortic dissection (AAD) may be avoided.Methods and Results:From 2005 to 2015, 158 patients underwent surgical repair for AAD via a median sternotomy. We compared 24 (15.2%) octogenarians (83±3 years) with 134 (84.8%) patients aged ≤79 years (62±13 years), based on retrospectively collected clinical data. Octogenarians were predominantly female (79...

In September 2015 Thomson Reuters published its Ranking of Innovative Universities (RIU). Covering 100 large research-intensive universities worldwide, Stanford University came in first, MIT was second and Harvard in third position. But how meaningful is this outcome? In this paper we will take a critical view from a methodological perspective. We focus our attention on the various types of metrics available, whether or not data redundancies are addressed, and if metrics should be assembled into a single composite overall score or not...

PURPOSE: Trainee mistreatment remains an important and serious medical education issue. Mistreatment toward trainees by the medical team has been described; mistreatment by patients and families has not. Motivated by discrimination towards a resident by a family in their emergency department, the authors sought to identify strategies for trainees and physicians to respond effectively to mistreatment by patients and families. METHOD: A purposeful sample of pediatric faculty educational leaders was recruited from April-June 2014 at Stanford University...

AIM: To identify the predictive signs of aortic valve involvement on the non-electrocardiogram (ECG)-gated admission computed tomography (CT) of patients with Type A aortic dissection (AD) according to the Stanford classification. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the non-ECG-gated CT examinations of patients admitted to the emergency department who underwent surgery for Type A AD over a period of 4 years. The diameter of the following structures was calculated as the mean of the smallest and largest diameters (mm) measured in two different planes: aortic annulus, sinus of Valsalva, sinotubular junction, and proximal ascending aorta...

Stanford Type A aortic dissection is a rapidly progressing disease process that is often fatal without emergent surgical repair. A small proportion of Type A dissections go undiagnosed in the acute phase and are found upon delayed presentation of symptoms or incidentally. These chronic lesions may have a distinct natural history that may have a better prognosis and could potentially be managed differently then those presenting acutely. The method of repair depends on location and extent of the false lumen, as well as involvement of critical structures and branch arteries...

BACKGROUND: Stanford type-A acute aortic dissection (AAD) is a severe cardiovascular disease demonstrating the characteristics of acute onset and rapid development, with high morbidity and mortality. The available evidence shows that preoperative acute lung injury (ALI) induced by Stanford type-A AAD is a frequent and important cause for a number of untoward consequences. However, there is no study assessing the incidence of preoperative ALI and its independent determinants before Standford type-A AAD surgery in Chinese adult patients...

The dehiscence of saphenous vein grafts (SVGs) is a rare, often fatal, complication of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). We present the case of a 57-year-old man who underwent hemiarch graft interposition and CABG for a Stanford type A aortic dissection. Five months after discharge, the patient developed streptococcal sepsis caused by a hemodialysis catheter. Complete rupture of the proximal anastomoses of the saphenous veins and containment by the obliterated pericardial cavity was observed 25 months after the initial operation...
