Oxidative Stress and Cardiovascular Risk: Research Must Persist

Ivan Lozada Martinez, Daniela Torres Llinás, Jaine Anaya Rivera, Jennifer Jiménez Valverde and Milena Castro Berrio

Article Type: Commentary | First Published: December 16, 2020

Advances in medicine and experimental biology have supported the definition of concepts related to the process of cellular stress, depending on new discoveries at the molecular level. Oxidative stress is the product of the activity of various metabolic pathways including the mitochondrial electron chain, Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate Oxidase (NADPH), nitric oxide synthase, xanthine oxidase, among others. Physiologically, regular levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS) play a fundam...

Interventional Stroke Treatment in Patients with Tandem Lesions: What Factors Influence the Clinical Outcome?

Elmouden R, Moya A, Reimann G, Adamczewski O, Schwarz M and Rohde S

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: November 05, 2020

Endovascular treatment of acute stroke patients with tandem lesions is technically challenging. We sought to evaluate clinical and interventional factors that might influence the clinical outcome in these patients. We retrospectively analysed the interventional and clinical data of patients with tandem lesions and acute embolic stroke in the anterior circulation that underwent endovascular stroke treatment at our institution. Patients were selected if they had a CTA-proved vessel occlusion of th...

Extensive Tissue Necrosis: A Rare but Catastrophic Complication of Sclerotherapy

Paul Robert Weaver

Article Type: Short Commentary | First Published: March 12, 2020

While sclerotherapy may seem safe, catastrophic complications have been reported, including local and systemic adverse reactions. For example, extensive tissue necrosis and cerebrovascular accident (stroke) Patient selection is vital and treating physicians should be aware of all potential complications and discuss them with their patients, prior to treatment, to obtain informed consent. Physicians also need to be prepared to manage catastrophic complications that could lead to amputation or dea...

Slight Increases of Phosphorus and Sulfur in Human First Septal Perforator Branches of the Left Anterior Descending Artery with Aging

Yoshiyuki Tohno, Setsuko Tohno, Takeshi Minami, Nutcharin Pakdeewong-Ongkana, Noppadol Phasukdee and Pasuk Mahakkanukrauh

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: March 12, 2020

To elucidate age-related changes of the first septal perforator branch (FSB), the authors investigated age-related changes of elements in the FSBs by direct chemical analysis. In addition, the effects of different arterial sizes and genders on element accumulation were investigated in the FSBs. Sixty-two formalin-fixed adult Thai hearts were used and the FSBs were carefully dissected in the hearts. After the arteries were incinerated with nitric acid and perchloric acid, element contents were de...

Surgical Treatment of a Popliteal Artery Pseudoaneurysm after Total Knee Arthroplasty

B. Matias Garcia, A Sanchez Gollarte, F Ruiz Grande, S Barrena Blazquez, T Ratia Jimenez, RG Alvarado Hurtado and F Noguerales Fraguas

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 23, 2019

Vascular complications after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) are uncommon but they can compromise the viability of the limbs. The incidence of popliteal pseudoaneurysms after total knee arthroplasty varies from 0.03 to 0.5%. We present the case of a popliteal pseudoaneurysm as a complication after a TKA. A 76-year-old woman with a diagnosis of right knee osteoarthritis is undergoing TKA. During the postoperative period, the patient presented a pulsating and progressive growing mass in the poplitea...

Oxygen, the Link between Intracranial Aneurisms Disruption and the Atmospheric Environment?

Thierry Patrice

Article Type: LETTER TO EDITOR | First Published: May 22, 2019

The general purpose of research either clinical or basic is to describe links existing between an identified disease and its whole environment from the surrounding tissues and the patient, to his ecosystem. From this point of view berry aneurisms are extremely interesting: They develop from normal tissues, their cause is largely unknown, and their evolution is barely predictable but dramatic in case of disruption. Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) from a ruptured aneurysm accounts for around 5% of a...

Superficial Temporal Artery Pseudoaneurysm Following a Traumatic Haircut

Matthew L Carnevale, John Phair, Eric B Trestman, Gregory Dickinson and Michael J Vitti

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: Augsut 08, 2018

Superficial temporal artery pseudoaneurysms are well known to occur following blunt trauma to the forehead, but their manifestation after penetrating trauma is considerably less often reported. A middle-aged male presented with a pulsatile mass on his forehead that had been growing slowly. He reports being accidentally cut by his barber in that location 2-3 months prior. This was determined to be a superficial temporal artery aneurysm by physical diagnosis. The aneurysm was surgically resected, ...
