A reduction in brain oxygen supply due to ANOXEMIA (a reduced amount of oxygen being carried in the blood by HEMOGLOBIN), or to a restriction of the blood supply to the brain, or both. Severe hypoxia is referred to as anoxia, and is a relatively common cause of injury to the central nervous system. Prolonged brain anoxia may lead to BRAIN DEATH or a PERSISTENT VEGETATIVE STATE. Histologically, this condition is characterized by neuronal loss which is most prominent in the HIPPOCAMPUS; GLOBUS PALLIDUS; CEREBELLUM; and inferior olives.

Remote cerebellar hemorrhage. (1/18)

Remote cerebellar hemorrhage (RCH) is a rare but benign, self-limited complication of supratentorial craniotomies that, to the best of our knowledge, has not been described in the imaging literature. RCH can be an unexpected finding on routine postoperative imaging studies and should not be mistaken for more ominous causes of bleeding such as coagulopathy, hemorrhagic infarction, or cortical vein occlusion. Cerebellar hemorrhage in the typical setting can be identified as RCH and does not require more extensive or invasive evaluation.  (+info)

Age thresholds for increased mortality of three predominant crash induced head injuries. (2/18)

Trauma in the US's increasingly aged population will pose medical, engineering, and legislative challenges in the coming decade. This study sought to identify the age threshold of maximal risk for patients with the three most common isolated types of head injuries from motor vehicle crashes (MVCs). Receiver-operator characteristic analysis was used to identify the quantitative age threshold associated with increased mortality for the three most common MVC-induced types of head injuries. For each injury, an algorithm using multivariable logistic regression modeling was implemented to examine mortality as a function of age, adjusted for the GCS motor score and patient gender. The age threshold that maximized the area under the receiver operator characteristic curve (AUROC) was identified and the curve examined. The increased adjusted odds ratio (AOR) for death associated with each threshold was estimated along with 95% confidence intervals. Data used was from the American College of Surgeons National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB) version 7, Motor Vehicle Crash cases from Jan 1, 2001 to Dec 31, 2006. Three types of head injuries were of a sufficiently high incidence and severity level to be included in the study; the AIS 140684.3 (Cerebrum, Subarachnoid Hemorrhage, n=499), AIS 140650.4 (Cerebrum, Subdural Hematoma NFS, n=273), and AIS 140629.4 (Hematoma/Hemorrhage, Not Further Specified, n=123). The age thresholds are 58 (AOR=4.12, 95% CI 1.21-14.07, p=0.024), 54 (AOR=4.71, 95% CI 1.08-20.46, p=0.039) and 47 (AOR=15.44, 95% CI 2.94-81.2, p=0.001), respectively. Maximal AUROC values ranged from 0.89-0.93. This data along with data on injury mechanism has been used to provide information on the ideal 'threshold' beyond which age becomes an important factor for these three types of head injuries. This is the first study to quantitatively estimate the mortality threshold age for common isolated head injuries. This study has potential implications in the arena of safety design for the elderly, automated crash notification, and auto safety legislation.  (+info)

Progression of pre-existing Chiari type I malformation secondary to cerebellar hemorrhage: case report. (4/18)

A previously healthy 32-year-old man was surgically treated under a diagnosis of right subcortical hematoma. Magnetic resonance imaging incidentally demonstrated tonsillar herniation. Thirty-two months later, he was readmitted with complaints of occipital, neck, and shoulder pain as well as cerebellar ataxia. Subsequent magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated cerebellar hemorrhage and progression in the downward herniation of the tonsils. Conservative treatment resulted in spontaneous disappearance of the cerebellar hematoma, and the clinical signs and radiological findings improved. Patients with Chiari type I malformation require neuroimaging follow up because the downward herniation of the tonsils can progress in association with subsequent pathophysiological disorders.  (+info)

Brain abscess in a non-penetrating traumatic intracerebral hematoma: case report and review of literature. (5/18)

We report a 57-year-old man who presented one month after sustaining a traumatic right temporal intracerebral hematoma with history of headache, left hemiparesis and altered sensorium of two days duration. A diagnosis of right temporal resolving hematoma was made on computed tomography scan. However, his sensorium progressively deteriorated and he underwent craniotomy and partial excision of an abscess. He was treated with appropriate antibiotics for six weeks despite of which he did not improve and died nine months later. We conclude that there should be a high index of suspicion for brain abscess in patients with traumatic intracerebral hemorrhage if the clinical and radiological picture is different from the expected course of a resolving hematoma.  (+info)

The difference in seizure incidences between young and adult rats related to lipid peroxidation after intracortical injection of ferric chloride. (7/18)

INTRODUCTION: Clinical studies have shown that the incidence of early post-traumatic seizures is higher in children than in adults. It has been proposed that iron-induced lipid peroxidation plays an important role in the development of epileptogenic foci. This study examined some of the hypothesised reasons for the difference in the incidence of early post-traumatic seizures between children and adults. METHODS: 12 young rats and 12 adult rats were randomised into four groups. Groups 1 and 2 were control groups, comprising six young rats and six adult rats, respectively, and they were administered an intracortical injection of saline. Groups 3 and 4 were injury groups, comprising six young rats and six adult rats, respectively, and they were administered an intracortical injection of FeCl3. All the rats were observed for six hours post-injection for the occurrence of seizures, and were then killed. The injected hemispheres were extirpated and tested for the malondialdehyde (MDA) levels and superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity as indices of oxidative damage. RESULTS: Seizures were observed only in Group 3. Increased MDA levels and decreased SOD activity were observed in Group 3 (ANOVA, p-value is less than 0.001). Increased MDA levels and decreased SOD activity were significantly higher in rats with seizures (Group 3) than in those without seizures (independent t-test, p-value is less than 0.001). CONCLUSION: Different levels of lipid peroxidation induced by an intracortical ferric chloride injection may account for the different incidence rates of seizures between young and adult rats.  (+info)

Influence of age and anti-platelet/anti-coagulant use on the outcome of elderly patients with fall-related traumatic intracranial hemorrhage. (8/18)

Ground-level fall is the most common cause of traumatic intracranial hemorrhage (TICH) in the elderly. Many studies on geriatric TICH have regarded patients aged >/=65 years as a single group, but substantial heterogeneity is likely to exist within this population. Eighty-two elderly patients with fall-related TICH treated in our institution during a 6-year period were stratified into 3 age groups (65-74, 75-84, and >/=85 years), and intergroup differences in the demographics and outcomes at discharge were evaluated. The influence of the use of anti-platelet/anti-coagulant (AP/AC) agent on outcomes was also investigated. Comparison of demographic variables demonstrated significant differences in the frequency of preinjury alcohol consumption and use of AP/AC agents between the 3 groups, indicating that the causes or triggers of fall might be substantially different between the 65-74 years group and the other two groups combined. The frequency of unfavorable outcomes increased with age, and the increase was statistically significant. The 82 patients were divided into two subgroups depending on the use of AP/AC agents. The outcomes of the >/=85 years group taking AP/AC agents were particularly poor compared with those of the >/=85 years group not using AP/AC agents. Advancing age may be associated with unfavorable outcomes in elderly patients with fall-related TICH, and patients aged >/=85 years taking AP/AC have the greatest risk of unfavorable outcomes. Physicians must consider the risk/benefit analysis before prescribing AP/AC agents to patients aged >/=85 years.  (+info)

Recent studies demonstrated a role of sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) in the protection against the stress of ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. In experiments reported here, we have investigated the signaling through the S1P cascade by FTY720, a sphingolipid drug candidate displaying structural similarity to S1P, underlying the S1P cardioprotective effect. In ex vivo rat heart and isolated sinoatrial node models, FTY720 significantly prevented arrhythmic events associated with I/R injury including premature ventricular beats, VT, and sinus bradycardia as well as A-V conduction block. Real-time PCR and Western blot analysis demonstrated the expression of the S1P receptor transcript pools and corresponding proteins including S1P1, S1P2, and S1P3 in tissues dissected from sinoatrial node, atrium and ventricle. FTY720 (25 nM) significantly blunted the depression of the levels of phospho-Pak1 and phospho-Akt with ischemia and with reperfusion. There was a significant increase in phospho-Pak1 levels by 35%,
Senile plaques, the major neuropathological lesions of Alzheimers disease (AD), are composed primarily of amyloid-beta (Abeta) peptide and contain high concentrations of iron (1.0 mM). We have previously shown that intracortical injections of 1.0 mM iron to adult rats produce significantly more neuronal loss than control injections of saline vehicle, whereas injections of Abeta do not. Because iron has been shown to increase the in vitro toxicity of Abeta, the present study was undertaken to determine whether iron can make Abeta neurotoxic in vivo. Abeta and 1.0 mM iron (as ferric ammonium citrate) were coinjected into rat cerebral cortex, and the neuronal loss was compared with that produced by pure Abeta or pure iron. The human and rat variants of Abeta(1-42) were compared to determine whether they produce the same amount of neuronal loss when combined with iron. Coinjection of iron with either Abeta variant caused significantly more neuronal loss than Abeta peptide alone, suggesting that ...
In this manuscript we show that the repertoire of naive CD4 T cells is very well maintained up to the age of 65 years; however, it dramatically dwindles in subsequent years and is severely contracted and not distinguishable from the repertoire of memory T cells at 75-80 years of age. This finding has important implications. The diverse repertoire of naive T cells is needed to initiate a T cell response to new Ags, e.g., newly emerging viruses, such as severe acquired respiratory syndrome (22); antigenic drift of existing viruses, such as influenza virus (14); or new Ags used in tumor vaccination protocols (23). If the naive repertoire is severely contracted in diversity, the likelihood of finding fitting TCRs to meet new antigenic challenges is minute. Priming of immune responses should, therefore, be attempted as long as diversity is intact, whereas vaccination strategies after that age threshold should focus on boosting existing memory T cell responses.. Because of the enormous diversity of ...
The cutoff values for age with AUCs and 95% CI for individuals with periodontitis were 46 years (0.72 [0.71-0.73]), 43 years (0.73 [0.72, 0.74]), 45 years (0.71 [0.70,0.72]), 43 years (0.73 [0.72, 0.74]), and 45 years (0.74 [0.72, 0.75]) for no obesity, no abdominal obesity, no diabetes mellitus, no hypertension, and no metabolic syndrome groups, respectively.This study proposed the guideline for the appropriate age threshold at which to recommend the evaluation of moderate and severe periodontitis for the general population and additionally added the guideline for the individuals without systemic disease including diabetes mellitus, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, and obesity ...

121 Introduction: Serial changes in cerebral blood flow after intracerebral hemorrhage may influence tissue viability in regions surrounding the hematoma. Non invasive monitoring may assist titration of systolic blood pressure. Purpose: To determine if continuous quantitative electroencephalography percent alpha variability(EEGPAV)can discriminate areas of critically reduced cerebral blood flow (CBF). Methods:Ten patients with traumatic intracerebral hemorrhage underwent combined monitoring of cerebral microdialysis, EEGPAV, and intermittent xenon-computerized tomograhpy to determine if EEGPAV monitoring could determine and monitor cellular distress in the context of oligemia. Critical oligemia was defined as CBF , 25. Time and regional matched samples of EEG, microdialysis and CBF were used to correlate across modalities. Regions adjacent to the hematoma only were studied. Results:Six patients had regional CBF , 25 and 4 , 30 cc/100gm/min. In the low CBF group, the mean regional EEGPAV was 0.11 ...
Remote cerebellar hemorrhage A remote cerebellar hemorrhage (RCH) is a spontaneous bleeding in the posterior fossa. Epidemiology Is a very rare complication of supratentorial surgery, with a reported incidence of 0,08% . RCH after burr hole trephinations for CSDH is even rarer, with an incidence of 0,14%

The main findings of this study are as follows: In a large (n=1185), community-based sample of African ancestry, independent of confounders including mean arterial pressure (distending pressures), reflected waves (RI or Pb) accounted for more of the variation in PPc and LVMI than did Pf, whereas Pi accounted for more of the variation in PPc and LVMI than did aortic systolic pressure augmentation (AIx or Pa). The marked contrasting contributions of indexes of reflected waves, RI or Pb and AIx or Pa, as compared with Pf and Pi toward variations in PPc and LVMI were noted below as well as above the age threshold (50 years) when Pf or Pi began to increase as well as in women and men considered separately.. Several previous studies have reported on a relatively greater contribution of Pa as compared with Pi to age-related increases in PPc.24-26 However, it is now recognized that Pa may be confounded by considerable overlap between forward and backward waves and that there is a poor relationship ...
Cerebral palsy (CP) is caused by damage to the developing brain and descending pathways, leading to altered patterns of growth and development. Those with CP may encounter early symptoms of paresis and spasticity, leading to progressive secondary musculoskeletal complications, including increased muscle atrophy and abnormal growth of contractile and non-contractile tissue. This causes significant weakness of the muscle and compromises daily motor function, leading to substantial declines in activities of daily living and independence. As such, interventions aimed at increasing muscle mass or preventing muscle atrophy for those with CP must be established. It is well established that dietary protein ingestion stimulates protein synthesis and inhibits proteolytic pathways, resulting in a positive protein balance and net muscle mass gain. In particular, leucine (a branched chain amino acid; BCAA), has been used to facilitate protein synthesis and muscle growth. Leucine also has anti-inflammatory ...

BALB/c is an albino, laboratory-bred strain of the house mouse from which a number of common substrains are derived. Now over 200 generations from New York in 1920, BALB/c mice are distributed globally, and are among the most widely used inbred strains used in animal experimentation. The founding animals of the strain were obtained by Halsey J. Bagg of Memorial Hospital, New York, from a mouse dealer in Ohio in 1913. From 1920, the progeny of the original colony were systematically inbred, sibling to sibling, for 26 generations over 15 years. During this time, the colony passed through the care of a number of scientists, including C.C. Little and E.C. MacDowell at the Carnegie Institution of Washington and H.J. Muller at the University of Texas at Austin. By 1935 the animals were in the possession of Mullers student, George Davis Snell, who moved them to The Jackson Laboratory. This stock provided the basis of all the BALB/c substrains that are now in use around the world. Snell provided some ...

Zinc is an important trace element in biological systems; however, excessive extracellular zinc could lead to neuronal cell death following ischemia, seizures, and brain trauma. In this study, we investigated whether the intracortical injection of zinc sulphate (200 mu g/kg, i.c.) changes total number of Purkinje cells in the cerebellum and whether different types nitric oxide synthase inhibitors. N-(G)-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME), N(omega)-nitro-L-arginine (L-NNA), aminoguanidine and 7-nitroindazole (7-NI), have protective effects against zinc neurotoxicity in Wistar albino rat;. Animals were divided into 6 groups: control, zinc, zinc + L-NAME (100 mg/kg, i.p.), zinc + L-NNA (100 mg/kg, i.p.), zinc + 7-NI (100 mg/kg, i.p.) and zinc + aminoguanidine (100 mg/kg, i.p.) groups. Total number of Purkinje cells in the cerebellum was estimated using unbiased stereological technique as 318,947 +/- 20,549, 123,483 +/- 23,762, 206,537 +/- 43,128, 178,135 +/- 26,635, 193,148 +/- 46,104 and ...
Animals and protocols. Sixty adult male Long-Evans rats (8 weeks of age; raised within our stock) were used in four experiments. First, the level of PSI after an intracortical injection of anisomycin (ANI) was assessed at three different time points in motor cortex and at one time point in parietal cortex and cerebellum (n = 3 in each group). Second, the spread of the injected volume of anisomycin in motor cortex, parietal cortex, and cerebellum was simulated by injections of India ink (five rats per site) (Berman and Dudai, 2001). Third, motor skill learning was evaluated after inducing PSI in contralateral motor cortex or in ipsilateral cerebellum (relative to the trained forelimb) by injection of ANI immediately after training sessions (days) 1 and 2. At identical time points, control groups received vehicle injections into motor cortex or ANI injections into contralateral parietal cortex (n = 6 per group). Skill training was continued until session 8. The investigator training the animals ...

Ageing is a natural process. It can be both beautiful and frustrating. When it comes to your skin, being proactive with your routine means protecting your bodys largest organ and its health. And, if desired, you can reduce signs of added years (and wisdom) for as long as you can. Even if used SPF religiously and moisturiser like theres no tomorrow, laughter lines and lifes stress may show signs before you were prepared. Theres no age threshold for this. Everybody is different, and so is every skin. At 16, someone might freak out at finding a gray hair on her head full of beautiful, sleek, dark brown hair. Another person, at 45 years, might decide to embrace her gray hair and let it all grow out, turning her delicate, thin mane into a beautiful platinum colour. Ingredients such as retinoids, niacinamide and vitamin C are super-searched words, renowned for minimising natural signs of ageing. Yes, they prove to be very useful to some, but they often can be harsh on the skin, which leaves ...

The rate of secondary haemorrhage being reported in this study (2.8%) reflects the number of patients who experienced bleeding that concerned them enough to seek medical attention. These patients presented themselves back to the ward after being discharged and it is departmental policy to admit patients with secondary haemorrhage for observation. Most of the cases resolved with conservative measures and did not require any active surgical intervention. By comparison, most published incidences of post-tonsillectomy haemorrhage include only those patients who had enough bleeding to require active surgical intervention. This incidence ranges from 0.09 to 3%5,6,7,8. In our study, the incidence of post-tonsillectomy haemorrhage requiring a return to the operating theatre is 0.6%.. As reported in other studies9,10, most of the patients in our study with post-tonsillectomy haemorrhage are male (63.4%). Bleeding was more common in teenagers, with an average age of 15 compared to an average age of 7 ...
Traumatic axonal injury (TAI) is a consistent feature of (TBI) and is responsible for much of its associated morbidity. TAI is now recognized to result from progressive/secondary axonal injury, though much remains unknown in regards to the pathobiology and the long-term consequences of axonal injury. TAI has been described in the perisomatic domain, located within the neocortex following mild TBI, and within this domain has been linked to neuronal recovery, not neuronal cell death in the acute setting. Due to technical limitations, our understanding of the long-term fate of this neuronal population and the mechanisms responsible for permitting neuronal survival, recovery and axon regeneration following injury are unknown. The studies presented in this thesis are centered upon the hypothesis that injury within the perisomatic domain is unique, and may allow for enhanced neuronal recovery and axonal regeneration. To address many of these questions, we have utilized a novel model of diffuse brain injury
Brain haemorrhage. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of the brain (side view) of a 63 year old man.

I was glad to confirm that I had stopped taking the anti-coagulant on schedule. And I was glad to be no longer taking that drug. Some of the fog cleared out of my head within twelve hours of taking the last pill, and suddenly I only needed nine or ten hours of sleep each night, instead of eleven hours of sleep plus an hour or two nap; I ...

Its what the study didnt show that is almost equally interesting. The cerebellar hemorrhages seen in the study I previously wrote about were not seen at all in the other studies. There could be a lesson in there about taking too much stock in secondary outcomes in small studies…. Also of note, looking at longer term outcome measures there appears to be no evidence of harm when the patients are all pooled together. The total number of patients in all of these studies was 620 which for a neonatal systematic review is not bad. A larger RCT may be needed to conclusively tell us what to do with a high and low dosing strategy that we can all agree on. What do we do though in the here and now? More specifically, if you are on call tomorrow and a baby is on 5 mg/kg/d of caffeine already, will you intubate them if they are having copious apneic events or give them a higher dose of caffeine when CPAP or NIPPV that they are already on isnt cutting it?

Several well-controlled trials in patients with heart failure have shown that the use of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, in combination with a diuretic, causes a reduction in mortality and morbidity, which seems to be mainly due to a reduction in fatal and nonfatal cardiovascular events. Our aim was to determine whether 249 consecutive patients discharged from hospital with a primary diagnosis of heart failure were routinely being treated with an ACE inhibitor at an appropriate dose. At the time of admission to hospital, 91 (36.5%) were receiving a combination of a diuretic and an ACE inhibitor, 129 (51.8%) were receiving a diuretic alone, and 29 (11.6%) had not previously received either a diuretic or an ACE inhibitor. At the time of discharge from hospital all patients were on a diuretic and 144 (57.8%) were also receiving an ACE inhibitor. Although 41 patients (16.5%) had a relative or absolute contraindication for the use of an ACE inhibitor, 64 patients (25.7%) with no ...
