Associations of Endothelin Polymorphisms and Aneurysm Size at Time of Rupture.
Aneurysm size is an important risk factor for aneurysm rupture. The pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying aneurysm growth remain poorly understood. Endothelin signaling is critical for cerebrovascular blood flow regulation. ...
Association of Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor 1 (SERPINE1) Polymorphisms and Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage.
Genetic variations of the serine proteinase inhibitor family E member 1 (SERPINE1) gene, which encodes plasminogen activator inhibitor 1, correlate with serum levels of its product and are associated with thrombophilia and ...
Crimean - Congo haemorrhagic fever presenting as thrombotic microangiopathy and acute renal failure
[No abstract available]
Cruveilhier plexus: An anatomical study and a potential cause of failed treatments for occipital neuralgia and muscular and facet denervation procedures: Laboratory investigation
Object. The nerves of the posterior neck are often encountered by the neurosurgeon and are sometimes the focus of denervation procedures for muscular, joint, or nervous pathologies. One collection of fibers in this region ...
Contributions of the fourth spinal nerve to the brachial plexus without prefixation: Laboratory investigation
Object. The intradural contributions of the C-4 nerve rootlets have not been previously evaluated for their connections to the brachial plexus. The authors undertook a cadaveric study to evaluate the C-4 contributions to ...
Neurological manifestations, imaging characteristics, and surgical outcome of intraspinal osteochondroma.
Spinal osteochondromas (OCs) are rare and can originate as solitary lesions or in the context of hereditary multiple exostoses. Concurrent spinal cord compression is a very rare entity. The purpose of this study was to ...
Do mechanical fluid laws dictate the branching pattern of the renal artery?
Anatomy of the renal artery is an important issue in the renal transplantation era. Multi-detector computed tomography angiography (MDCTA) is an accurate modality for the preoperative assessment of live renal donors, and ...
Parvovirus B19 microepidemic in renal transplant recipients with thrombotic microangiopathy and allograft vasculitis.
Parvovirus B-19 (B-19) can lead to various clinical scenarios in renal transplant recipients. Here, we report a B-19 microepidemic that occurred between January and March 2007, involving renal transplant recipients from a ...
Endoscopically assisted decompression of the suprascapular nerve in the supraspinous fossa: A cadaveric feasibility study. Laboratory investigation
Object. The suprascapular nerve may become entrapped as it travels deep to the suprascapular ligament, necessitating decompression. The present study was performed to verify the feasibility of a minimally invasive, ...
