Appropriate Use of CT Perfusion following Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage: A Bayesian Analysis Approach

Fellows’ Journal Club
March 2014

(1 of 3)

These investigators evaluated the test characteristics of CTP in patients with SAH for detection of delayed cerebral ischemia. Ninety-seven patients were assessed with CTP for ischemia and with DSA for vasospasm. The authors concluded that positive CTP findings identified patients who should be carefully considered for induced hypertension, hypervolemia, and hemodilution and/or intra-arterial therapy while negative CTP findings are useful in guiding a no-treatment decision.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE
In recent years CTP has been used as a complementary diagnostic tool in the evaluation of delayed cerebral ischemia and vasospasm. Our aim … Continue reading >>

Fellows’ Journal Club
December 2013

(2 of 3)

Results from a single center treating 20 patients with distal anterior cerebral artery aneurysms were analyzed and compared with those reported in a meta-analysis of 16 studies in the literature that included a total of 279 similar patients. These aneurysms may be treated with a high rate of success but complication rates are higher than those for aneurysms of the circle of Willis.

This study assesses the risk of being female in addition to the well-known factors of age and apolipoprotein E ε4 status in the development and progression of Alzheimer disease based on longitudinal brain atrophy, cognitive decline, and CSF markers. APOE ε4 accelerated rates of decline, especially in women. The gender effect was at least as important as APOE ε4 status and showed weaker relationships to CSF markers.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE
Age and the apolipoprotein E ε4 allele are well-known risk factors for Alzheimer disease, but whether female sex is also a risk … Continue reading >>
