The trigeminovascular system in humans: pathophysiologic implications for primary headache syndromes of the neural influences on the cerebral circulation. (1/468)

Primary headache syndromes, such as cluster headache and migraine, are widely described as vascular headaches, although considerable clinical evidence suggests that both are primarily driven from the brain. The shared anatomical and physiologic substrate for both of these clinical problems is the neural innervation of the cranial circulation. Functional imaging with positron emission tomography has shed light on the genesis of both syndromes, documenting activation in the midbrain and pons in migraine and in the hypothalamic gray in cluster headache. These areas are involved in the pain process in a permissive or triggering manner rather than as a response to first-division nociceptive pain impulses. In a positron emission tomography study in cluster headache, however, activation in the region of the major basal arteries was observed. This is likely to result from vasodilation of these vessels during the acute pain attack as opposed to the rest state in cluster headache, and represents the first convincing activation of neural vasodilator mechanisms in humans. The observation of vasodilation was also made in an experimental trigeminal pain study, which concluded that the observed dilation of these vessels in trigeminal pain is not inherent to a specific headache syndrome, but rather is a feature of the trigeminal neural innervation of the cranial circulation. Clinical and animal data suggest that the observed vasodilation is, in part, an effect of a trigeminoparasympathetic reflex. The data presented here review these developments in the physiology of the trigeminovascular system, which demand renewed consideration of the neural influences at work in many primary headaches and, thus, further consideration of the physiology of the neural innervation of the cranial circulation. We take the view that the known physiologic and pathophysiologic mechanisms of the systems involved dictate that these disorders should be collectively regarded as neurovascular headaches to emphasize the interaction between nerves and vessels, which is the underlying characteristic of these syndromes. Moreover, the syndromes can be understood only by a detailed study of the cerebrovascular physiologic mechanisms that underpin their expression.  (+info)

Cortical lesions in multiple sclerosis. (2/468)

Although previous studies have shown that the lesions of multiple sclerosis may involve the cerebral cortex, there is little published research on the prevalence and distribution of such lesions. Using neuropathological techniques and MRI, a series of studies has been undertaken in order to assess this, in particular to identify their relationship to cortical veins. A serial MRI study showed that the use of gadolinium proffered an increase in cortical lesion detection of 140% and showed that 26% of active lesions arose within or adjacent to the cortex. In a post-mortem study, MRI under-reported lesions subsequently analysed neuropathologically, particularly those arising within the cortex. In a further 12 cases examined, 478 cortical lesions were identified, of which 372 also involved the subcortical white matter. Seven different lesion types were identified; the majority arose within the territory of the principal cortical veins, whilst the remaining quarter arose within the territory of the small branch or superficial veins. Small cortical lesions are common in multiple sclerosis and are under-reported by MRI. Investigation of the cortical venous supply shows how such lesions may arise, and why the majority also involve the underlying white matter.  (+info)

Nitric oxide is the predominant mediator for neurogenic vasodilation in porcine pial veins. (3/468)

The innervation pattern and the vasomotor response of the potential transmitters in the porcine pial veins were investigated morphologically and pharmacologically. The porcine pial veins were more densely innervated by vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP)- and neuropeptide Y-immunoreactive (I) fibers than were calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP)-I, choline acetyltransferase-I, Substance P (SP)-I, and NADPH diaphorase fibers. Serotonin (5-HT)-I fibers, which were not detected in normal control pial veins, were observed in isolated pial veins after incubation with 5-HT (1 microM). 5-HT-I fibers, however, were not observed when incubation with 5-HT was performed in the presence of guanethidine (1 microM), suggesting that 5-HT was taken up into the sympathetic nerves. In vitro tissue bath studies demonstrated that porcine pial veins in the presence of active muscle tone relaxed on applications of exogenous 5-HT, CGRP, SP, VIP, and sodium nitroprusside, whereas exogenous norepinephrine and neuropeptide Y induced only constrictions. Transmural nerve stimulation (TNS) did not elicit any response in pial veins in the absence of active muscle tone. However, in the presence of active muscle tone, pial veins relaxed exclusively on TNS. This tetrodotoxin-sensitive relaxation was not affected by receptor antagonists for VIP, CGRP, 5-HT, or SP but was blocked by L-glutamine (1 mM) and abolished by Nomega-nitro-L-arginine (10 microM) and Nomega-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (10 microM). The inhibition by L-glutamine, Nomega-nitro-L-arginine, and Nomega-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester was reversed by L-arginine and L-citrulline but not by their D-enantiomers. These results demonstrate that the vasomotor effect of all potential transmitters except 5-HT in the pial veins examined resembles that in cerebral arteries. Although porcine pial veins receive vasodilator and constrictor nerves, a lack of constriction on TNS suggests that the dilator nerves that release nitric oxide may play a predominant role in regulating porcine pial venous tone.  (+info)

Cerebral veins: comparative study of CT venography with intraarterial digital subtraction angiography. (4/468)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Our objective was to compare the reliability of CT venography with intraarterial digital subtraction angiography (DSA) in imaging cerebral venous anatomy and pathology. METHODS: In 25 consecutive patients, 426 venous structures were determined as present, partially present, or absent by three observers evaluating CT multiplanar reformatted (MPR) and maximum intensity projection (MIP) images. These results were compared with the results from intraarterial DSA and, in a second step, with the results of an intraobserver consensus. In addition, pathologic conditions were described. RESULTS: Using DSA as the standard of reference, MPR images had an overall sensitivity of 95% (specificity, 19%) and MIP images a sensitivity of 80% (specificity, 44%) in depicting the cerebral venous anatomy. On the basis of an intraobserver consensus including DSA, MPR, and MIP images (415 vessels present), the sensitivity/specificity was 95%/91% for MPR, 90%/100% for DSA, and 79%/91% for MIP images. MPR images were superior to DSA images in showing the cavernous sinus, the inferior sagittal sinus, and the basal vein of Rosenthal. Venous occlusive diseases were correctly recognized on both MPR and MIP images. Only DSA images provided reliable information of invasion of a sinus by an adjacent meningioma. CONCLUSION: CT venography proved to be a reliable method to depict the cerebral venous structures. MPR images were superior to MIP images.  (+info)

Cerebellar infarct caused by spontaneous thrombosis of a developmental venous anomaly of the posterior fossa. (5/468)

Spontaneous thrombosis of a posterior fossa developmental venous anomaly (DVA) caused a nonhemorrhagic cerebellar infarct in a 31-year-old man who also harbored a midbrain cavernous angioma. DVA thrombosis was well depicted on CT and MR studies and was proved at angiography by the demonstration of an endoluminal clot.  (+info)

Frontal bone windows for transcranial color-coded duplex sonography. (6/468)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The use of the conventional temporal bone window for transcranial color-coded duplex sonography (TCCS) often results in difficulties in obtaining angle-corrected flow velocity measurements of the A2 segment of the anterior cerebral artery, the posterior communicating artery, and the midline venous vasculature because of the unfavorable insonation angle. The same applies to B-mode imaging of the frontal parenchyma. However, transorbital TCCS raises problems with the insonation of the orbital lens. To overcome these drawbacks, we studied the feasibility of frontal bone windows for TCCS examinations. METHODS: In 75 healthy volunteers (mean age, 45.3+/-17.0 years; age range, 17 to 77 years), the circle of Willis and the venous midline vasculature were insonated through a lateral and paramedian frontal bone window. Insonation quality of parenchymal structures (B-mode) was graded on a 3-point scale depending on the visibility of typical parenchymal landmarks. In a similar manner, the quality of the color-/Doppler-mode imaging of the arteries of the circle of Willis and the internal cerebral veins was assessed. In 15 patients (mean age, 62.7+/-13.7 years; age range, 33 to 83 years), the color-/Doppler-mode imaging quality of the intracranial vessels before and after application of an ultrasound contrast-enhancing agent was compared. RESULTS: B-mode insonation quality was optimal to fair in 73.3% of cases using the lateral and in 52.0% of cases using the paramedian frontal bone window, with defined parenchymal structures used as reference. Insonation quality decreased in those older than 60 years. In those younger than 60 years, angle-corrected flow velocity measurements of the A2 segment of the anterior cerebral artery and the internal cerebral vein were possible in 73.6% and 60.0%, respectively. Contrast enhancement resulted in a highly significant improvement in the imaging quality of the intracranial vessels. CONCLUSIONS: The transfrontal bone windows offer new possibilities for TCCS examinations, although the insonation quality is inferior to the conventional temporal bone window in terms of failure of an acoustic window. This can be compensated for by application of an ultrasound contrast-enhancing agent.  (+info)

Color Doppler study of the venous circulation in the fetal brain and hemodynamic study of the cerebral transverse sinus. (7/468)

OBJECTIVES: To describe the venous circulation in the fetal brain; to describe the normal blood flow velocity waveform in the transverse sinus and to establish normal reference ranges for the second half of gestation. POPULATION: A total of 126 pregnant women with uncomplicated pregnancies at 20-42 weeks of gestation. METHODS: A combination of color-coded Doppler and two-dimensional real-time ultrasound was used to identify the main venous systems in the fetal brain. Blood flow velocity waveforms of the transverse sinus were obtained from a transverse plane of the head at the level of the cerebellum. RESULTS: A waveform could be obtained in the cerebral transverse sinus in 98% of the cases. The waveform obtained was triphasic with a forward systolic component, a forward early diastolic component and a lower forward component in late diastole. Reverse flow during atrial contraction was seen before 28 weeks and the diastolic flow increased with gestation thereafter. Pulsatility and resistance indices decreased and flow velocities increased in the transverse sinus throughout gestation. CONCLUSION: The venous circulation of the fetal brain can be identified by color Doppler. The gestational age-related decrease in resistance and increase in flow velocities suggest that hemodynamic studies of the cerebral transverse sinus might have clinical implications in studying compromised fetuses.  (+info)

Successful radiosurgical treatment of arteriovenous malformation accompanied by venous malformation. (8/468)

We present a patient with a rare cerebrovascular malformation consisting of a typical arteriovenous malformation (AVM) with a nidus and a venous malformation (VM) in a single lesion. The AVM component was successfully obliterated by radiosurgery, whereas the VM was completely preserved. Radiosurgery can be an effective treatment technique for treating this type of malformation because it allows targeted obliteration of the AVM yet carries a low risk of damaging the venous drainage toward and away from the VM.  (+info)

The great cerebral vein is one of the large blood vessels in the skull draining the cerebrum of the brain. It is also known as the vein of Galen, named for its discoverer, the Greek physician Galen. However, it is not the only vein with this eponym.[clarification needed] The great cerebral vein is considered as one of the deep cerebral veins. Other deep cerebral veins are the internal cerebral veins, formed by the union of the superior thalamostriate vein and the superior choroid vein at the interventricular foramina. The internal cerebral veins can be seen on the superior surfaces of the caudate nuclei and thalami just under the corpus callosum. The veins at the anterior poles of the thalami merge posterior to the pineal gland to form the great cerebral vein. Most of the blood in the deep cerebral veins collects into the great cerebral vein. This comes from the inferior side of the posterior end of the corpus callosum and empties into the straight sinus located in the midline of the ...
Absent filling of the superficial middle cerebral vein is associated with reperfusion but not parenchymal hematoma in stroke patients undergoing thrombectomy: an observational study
INTRODUCTION: CT signs of acute ischemic stroke focus on parenchymal and arterial lesions. Little is known about venous changes. The aim of this study was to determine the value of decreased deep venous outflow as a predictor of acute ischemic stroke.. METHODS: Multimodal CT findings of 182 patients presenting for acute stroke evaluation within 4.5 hours of symptom onset were retrospectively reviewed for evidence of deep venous outflow changes. Interhemispheric symmetry of internal cerebral vein (ICV) opacification on CT angiogram was assessed by 3 raters. Discharge diagnosis, neurological assessment details, and radiographic data were extracted from electronic hospital records, and radiology reports.. RESULTS: Of 182 patients included in the study, 46 showed diminished ICV opacification (dICV) on the side of the expected ischemic lesion. Anterior circulation stroke was diagnosed in 87% of dICV cases, but in only 31% of subjects with ICV symmetry (sICV), suggesting a strong correlation of dICV ...

The Internal Cerebral Veins (vv. cerebri internæ; veins of Galen; deep cerebral veins) drain the deep parts of the hemisphere and are two in number; each is formed near the interventricular foramen by the union of the terminal and choroid veins. They run backward parallel with one another, between the layers of the tela chorioidea of the third ventricle, and beneath the splenium of the corpus callosum, where they unite to form a short trunk, the great cerebral vein; just before their union each receives the corresponding basal vein.. The terminal vein (v. terminalis; vena corporis striati) commences in the groove between the corpus striatum and thalamus, receives numerous veins from both of these parts, and unites behind the crus fornicis with the choroid vein, to form one of the internal cerebral veins. The choroid vein runs along the whole length of the choroid plexus, and receives veins from the hippocampus, the fornix, and the corpus callosum. ...
The treatment of cerebral vein thrombosis is anticoagulation. In the acute phase there is concern for hemorrhagic transformation. Most available data supports anticoagulation, nonetheless. In some patients with continued deterioration thrombolysis (systemic or catheter directed) can be tried. This is not standard treatment and complications are frequent.. Select patients with cerebral vein thrombosis should also receive other forms of treatment. Antibiotics, treatment of increased intracranial pressure and anti-epileptic medications are examples.. The duration of anticoagulation depends on the cause. It is similar to current recommendations for venous thromboembolism elsewhere. If the event was provoked, the treatment could be several months. A first unprovoked event should be treated longer. However, recurrent events or unprovoked cerebral vein thrombosis in the setting of severe thrombophilia may mandate long-term anticoagulation. Current guidelines (ACCP, AHA) suggest 3-6 months of treatment ...

Increased sensitivity of MR imaging of the brain has led to increased use of MR imaging to detect and assess malformations of the brain. Congenital malformations of the brain, including midline cerebral anomalies such as holoprosencephaly and posterior fossa anomalies, often are associated with venous anomalies (4-7). The venous system has been imaged with conventional angiography, but MR venography has increasingly been used to study the cerebral venous system. MR venography is noninvasive, does not involve ionizing radiation, and can be performed at the same time as MR imaging in comparatively short acquisition times. An understanding of the normal anatomy of the venous structure and its variations and the development of the venous system is crucial before studying the abnormal venous structure in malformations of the brain. Considerable data are available from conventional angiography studies regarding the intracranial veins and sinuses, but data regarding the capacity of MR venography in ...
This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Ocular fundoscopy available in 12 patients showed bilateral papilloedema in eight and optic disk atrophy in four. Clinical evolution was particularly noticeable in five patients because of chronic two patients or acute after lumbar shunting or puncture: three patients, one death tonsillar herniation. The remaining 11 had type II fistulas drainage into a sinus, with abnormal retrograde venous drainage into sinuses or cortical veins. Stenosis or thrombosis of the sinus es distal to the fistula was present in five patients.. The cerebral venous drainage was abnormal in all patients. Normal cerebral angiography should be added as a fifth criterion of benign intracranial hypertension. The cerebral venous drainage pattern must be carefully studied by contralateral carotid and vertebral artery injections to correctly evaluate the impairment of the cerebral venous outflow.. Lumbar CSF diversion puncture or shunting may induce acute tonsillar ...
Although crucial in regulating intracranial hydrodynamics, the cerebral venous system has been rarely studied because of its structural complexity and individual variations. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the organization of cerebral venous system in healthy adults. Phase-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (PC-MRI) was performed in 18 healthy volunteers, in the supine position. Venous, arterial, and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flows were calculated. We found heterogeneous individual venous flows and variable side dominance in paired veins and sinuses. In some participants, the accessory epidural drainage preponderated over the habitually dominant jugular outflow. The PC-MRI enabled measurements of venous flows in superior sagittal (SSS), SRS (straight), and TS (transverse) sinuses with excellent detection rates. Pulsatility index for both intracranial (SSS) and cervical (mainly jugular) levels showed a significant increase in pulsatile blood flow in jugular veins as compared with that ...
OBJECTIVE: As inspired oxygen availability falls with ascent to altitude, some individuals develop high-altitude headache (HAH). We postulated that HAH results when hypoxia-associated increases in cerebral blood flow occur in the context of restricted venous drainage, and is worsened when cerebral compliance is reduced. We explored this hypothesis in 3 studies. METHODS: In high-altitude studies, retinal venous distension (RVD) was ophthalmoscopically assessed in 24 subjects (6 female) and sea-level cranial magnetic resonance imaging was performed in 12 subjects ascending to 5,300m. Correlation of headache burden (summed severity scores [0-4]≤24 hours from arrival at each altitude) with RVD, and with cerebral/cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)/venous compartment volumes, was sought. In a sea-level hypoxic study, 11 subjects underwent gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance venography before and during hypoxic challenge (fraction of inspired oxygen=0.11, 1 hour). RESULTS: In the high-altitude studies, headache

OBJECTIVE: Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) is characterized by combined stenoses of the principal pathways of extracranial venous drainage, including the internal jugular veins (IJVs) and the azygous (AZY) vein, with development of collateral circles and insufficient drainage shown by increased mean transit time in cerebral magnetic resonance (MR) perfusion studies. CCSVI is strongly associated with multiple sclerosis (MS). This study evaluated the safety of CCSVI endovascular treatment and its influence on the clinical outcome of the associated MS. METHODS: Sixty-five consecutive patients with CCSVI, subdivided by MS clinical course into 35 with relapsing remitting (RR), 20 with secondary progressive (SP), and 10 with primary progressive (PP) MS, underwent percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA). Mean follow-up was 18 months. Vascular outcome measures were postoperative complications, venous pressure, and patency rate. Neurologic outcome measures were cognitive and motor ...

Early and accurate diagnosis of cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is possible with the help of computed tomography (CT) scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Empty Δ sign on postcontrast CT is present in only up to 30% of the cases. The role of CT venography is not yet established, but it is emerging as an effective modality for diagnosis of CVT. T2* MRI sequence is superior to spin echo in detecting CVT and small hemor rhages. MR venography is considered the technique of choice for diagnosis and follow-up of CVT, but in certain cases, MRI could be superior as it shows the thrombus itself and not just the absence of signal as seen on MR venography. Diffusion-weighted imaging is a relatively new MRI technique that is extremely sensitive in detecting acute arterial strokes and can distinguish cytotoxic and vasogenic edema. The presence of hyperintense signal on diffusion-weighted imaging in the occluded veins or sinuses at the time of diagnosis may predict a low rate of vessel recanalization.

Our model predicts that extra-cranial strictures cause increased pressure in the cerebral venous system. Specifically, there is a predicted pressure increase of about 10% in patients with a 90% stenoses. Pressure increases are related to significant flow redistribution with flow reduction of up to 70% in stenosed vessels and consequent flow increase in collateral pathways ...

Increases in brain activity are matched by increases in blood flow. Neurons require a huge amount of energy, but cant store it themselves, so must rely on blood to deliver the nutrients they need.. Two new studies help explain how blood flow is controlled.. The first study found blood appears to be stored in the blood vessels in the space between the brain and skull.. When the heart pumps blood into cranium, only a fraction of it flows into the capillaries that infuse the brain. The arteries in the cranium expand to store the excess blood. This expansion pushes out cerebrospinal fluid into the spinal column. When the heart relaxes, the drop in the pressure pushing blood through the arteries causes them to contract and the blood is pushed into the brains capillaries. This in turn forces used blood out of the brain into the veins between it and the skull. These cerebral veins expand to store this blood as it leaves the brain.. Crucially, the study shows that the flow of blood in the veins ...

Well, it turns out I was wrong. There was a family standing with their daughter and both my husband and I noticed that they were speaking English. Once we went into the hall, I noticed the mother looking our way several times, as if she knew us. She finally came over to us and called my husband by his name. It took us a minute or two, but we realized that not only did we know one another, but we both had quite a history with her. She had been on Shlichut (emissary sabbatical year) with her parents in our fair city of Toronto back when I was about 11 years old. She, stuck in a strange city unable to speak a word of English, struck up a warm and meaningful friendship with my husband who was about 14 at the time, and while she helped him learn Hebrew, he eased her transition into the city and the community. And if that wasnt enough, it turned out that her family were distant cousins of mine from my grandmothers side. I actually remember having them over for dinner. Whats funny is that they now ...
Looking for online definition of Cerebral veins in the Medical Dictionary? Cerebral veins explanation free. What is Cerebral veins? Meaning of Cerebral veins medical term. What does Cerebral veins mean?
The emissary veins connect the extracranial venous system with the intracranial venous sinuses. They connect the veins outside the cranium to the venous sinuses inside the cranium. They drain from the scalp, through the skull, into the larger meningeal veins and dural venous sinuses. They are common in children. Emissary veins have an important role in selective cooling of the head. They also serve as routes where infections are carried into the cranial cavity from the extracranial veins to the intracranial veins. There are several types of emissary veins including posterior condyloid, mastoid, occipital and parietal emissary vein. There are also emissary veins passing through the foramen ovale, jugular foramen, foramen lacerum, and hypoglossal canal. Because the emissary veins are valveless, they are an important part in selective brain cooling through bidirectional flow of cooler blood from the evaporating surface of the head. In general, blood flow is from external to internal but the flow ...

The dural venous sinuses are the meningeal ducts or conduits, into which the venous blood from the cerebral veins flows. Located in the dura mater of the meninges, just over the brain surface, their function is to drain the oxygen-depleted blood, which comes from the brain via de cerebral veins, and excess cerobrospinal fluid into the internal jugular vein. There are several dural sinuses in the meninges; they are: superior sagittal sinus, inferior sagittal sinus, straight sinus, occipital sinus, sphenoparietal sinus, cavernous sinuses, confluence of sinuses, superior petrosal sinus, inferior petrosal sinus, transverse sinus, and sigmoid sinus. ...

The decision was made to undergo a staged arterial embolization at 4 years of age after developing worsening right-sided hemiparesis. An attempt was made to occlude the posterior choroidal feeding vessel with a large 25 mm × 50 cm coil, followed by a 6 mm × 20 cm coil; however, the high flow of the lesion displaced both coils into the wall of the aneurysmal venous sac. Interval magnetic resonance imaging and angiography revealed partial occlusion of the VoGM at ...

A 37-year-old gravida 3, para 1 pregnant woman was referred to the Maternal Fetal Care Center (MFCC) at Boston Childrens Hospital at 36 weeks gestation for the finding of vein of Galen malformation (VOGM).. The patients pregnancy was complicated by gestational diabetes. Her surgical history was notable for adenoidectomy, a previous cesarean section, and dilation and curettage following a spontaneous abortion. Maternal medications included prenatal vitamins and glyburide. Family history was noncontributory. This pregnancy was planned and naturally conceived. The woman received appropriate prenatal care. Noninvasive prenatal screening showed her to be at low risk and cell-free fetal DNA screening was negative. She had a normal anatomy scan at 20 weeks gestation. Fetal ultrasonography performed at 36 weeks gestation for evaluation of fetal growth demonstrated a prominent rounded vascular structure in the quadrigeminal cistern with turbulent flow consistent with a VOGM. Fetal echocardiography ...

We aimed to analyze the causes and predictors of death during the acute phase of CVT in the International Study on Cerebral Vein and Dural Sinus Thrombosis (ISCVT) to identify preventable or treatable causes. Methods - ISCVT is a multinational, prospective, observational study including 624 patients with CVT occurring between May 1998 and May 2001, in which 27 patients (4.3%) died during the acute phase, 21 (3.4%) within 30 days from symptom onset. Inclusion forms and a questionnaire assessing the causes of death were analyzed. A logistic regression analysis was performed to identify the predictors of death within 30 days from symptom onset of CVT. Results - Median time between onset of symptoms and death was 13 days and between diagnosis and death, 5 days. Causes of death were mainly ...
Using the large data set of this prospective multicenter international study, we described a distinctive clinical presentation of CVT in patients aged ≥65 years. CVT in such elderly patients rarely presents as isolated intracranial hypertension syndrome, but depressed consciousness and altered mental status are common. The prognosis of elderly patients was worse than that of younger patients: only 49% recovered completely, whereas 22% were dependent and 27% had died at the end of follow-up.. Strengths of this study include: (1) large sample size and diversity of participating hospitals in different countries and continents, which diminishes potential inclusion bias; (2) diagnostic confirmation by robust methods in all cases; (3) 98.7% completeness of follow-up. There are, however, some potential limitations: differential effect of age in case ascertainment and previous disability in elderly patients. It is possible that younger subjects reporting of headache were investigated sooner and more ...

One of the major regulators of cerebral venous outflow is posture, due to the gravitational gradient between the cerebral parenchymal veins and the base of the neck (␣30mmHg).2 The authors demonstrate a much larger change in blood flow volume in normal subjects compared to MS patients when the subjects go from a supine to an upright position. They find a change of 128ml/min and 56ml/min for the right and left sides, respectively, for MS patients. But they find a much larger change of 266ml/min and 105ml/min for their normal subjects. This result actually suggests the presence of chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI). Possible causes include intra-luminal septum, membrane, and immobile valve affecting the hydrostatic pressure gradient in the upright position. The presence of such blockages in the extracranial and extravertebral cerebral veins has been proven also by using catheter venography, the unquestionable gold standard in medicine.3,4 ...

Venous air embolism is a dreaded condition particularly relevant to the field of nephrology. In the face of a favourable, air-to-blood pressure gradient and an abnormal communication between the atmosphere and the veins, air entrance into the circulation is common and can bring about venous air embolism. These air emboli can migrate to different areas through three major routes: pulmonary circulation, paradoxical embolism and retrograde ascension to the cerebral venous system. The frequent undesirable outcome of this disease entity, despite timely and aggressive treatment, signifies the importance of understanding the underlying pathophysiological mechanism and of the implementation of various preventive measures ...
The dura mater has been cut away so that the left cerebral hemisphere is visible lying inside the arachnoid membrane. The tentorium appears in the lower right part of the view and the transverse sinus is opened along its posterior border. The superior sagittal sinus has been opened by removing a strip of dura from its superficial wall. The superior cerebral veins ascend on the surface of the frontal and parietal lobes to empty into this sinus at various points. A number of anastomoses are present between these veins, none being particularly large in this specimen. In general the superior cerebral veins are divided into anterior and posterior groups. In this case there appear to be several anterior vessels, a group of large veins intermediate in position (overlying the region of the central sulcus) and several posterior veins (not visible in this view ...

Background: Postoperative cerebral venous infarction (POCVI) is not an uncommon complication in cranial surgeries. However, literature is sparse on the epidemiology and management of postoperative venous infarcts. Aims and Objectives: The aim was to study the incidence and clinico-radiological course of POCVI in patients in a tertiary level neurosurgical unit and compare the outcome between pediatric and adult patients following POCVI. Materials and Methods: In this prospective study carried out over an 8 month period, consecutive patients undergoing elective major cranial surgeries were monitored neurologically and with serial computed tomography (CT) of the head for POCVI in the postoperative period. All patients had at least one CT head done within 24 hours of surgery. Diagnosis of hemorrhagic POCVI was based on the presence of subcortical, multifocal hyperdensities with irregular margins and or low density areas in the perioperative fields. Nonhemorrhagic POCVI was diagnosed if CT showed a ...
One hypothesis would be via the stimulation of the parasympathetic afferent or sensory nerve fibres that innervate cerebral veins and venous sinuses. There is an extensive literature on the potential mechanisms of how parasympathetic stimulation, using the vagal nerve, could be anti-inflammatory. I suspect exploring the mechanisms of how venoplasty is anti-inflammatory is academic because the treatment effect is so small and is nowhere close to the effectiveness of licensed DMTs. Why would you have venoplasty if you could be on a more effective DMT?. I hope this will finally be the last we hear about CCSVI. I want to stress when you apply medical philosophical principles, CCSVI is not a disease; it does not fulfil the contemporary definition of being a disease entity. In short, there is not clinicopathological correlate that defines CCSVI as being a disease. A better descriptor for CCSVI would be that it is a meme. Definition: A meme an image, video, piece of text, etc., that is copied and ...

On September 9th, 2010 our little Elliot Justin passed away after being born just one week earlier . When I was 37 weeks pregnant with him, he was diagnosed with an extremely rare birth defect, Vein of Galen Malformation. A vein in his brain had extra arteries coming off of it and the large structure was taxing his heart at an alarming rate. We were told after his first MRI that his chances of survival were very slim. When he was one week old he underwent surgery to block the excess arteries. Elliot sufferred a huge brain bleed during the surgery and passed away the next day.. We continue to treasure and remember the one week we had with Elliot. He was a peaceful and amazing soul. We wish that we could have watched him grow up. He will always be a part of our family, and we miss him as much today as the day that he died.. During Elliots one week with us, he was in Childrens Hospital NICU. The nurses and staff of the NICU were nothing short of amazing. They made it possible for us to hold him, ...

MRA and CTA are considered noninvasive imaging methods to visualize arterial and venous structures with out the need for direct placement of a catheter into a patients vessel of interest. The benefit to the patient is that CTA and MRA may be no more uncomfortable than placement of an IV needle into the arm with the subsequent injection of a peripheral arm vein. MRA and CTA are less expensive than the alternative traditional Xray contrast angiographic study and without the risks of needle placement into a groin vessel with subsequent threading of a catheter into the vessel of interest. MRA, as opposed to CTA and traditional angiography, does not require iodine based contrast agents and is safe for patients with renal insufficiency.. Candidates for these procedures are typically patients with increased risk for intracranial aneurysm, arterial narrowing of vessels of the neck, vascular occlusive disease of the lower extremities, or suspected renal arterial narrowing in patients with uncontrolled ...
The Sons of Horus emissary, Argonis, was dispatched by Maloghurst on behalf of Horus, and he traveled on the storm eagle Sickle Blade. He was accompanied by Prophesius the astropath and Sota-Nul of the Dark Mechanicum, and he sought audience with Perturabo on the Iron Blood to demand why he invaded Tallarn. Perturabo, after revealing his irritation, stated that Tallarn was a valuable route to Terra. Argonis was dismissed, but he did not trust the primarchs word and contacted the Alpha Legion to investigate. After 12 days, the Alpha Legion agent and psyker, Jalen, posed as a serf and met with Argonis. Jalen stated that he did not know why the Iron Warriors were present at Tallarn, but he admitted that the Alpha Legion was on the planet before they arrived. Argonis leaves for the Sightless Warren, not trusting the Alpha Legion forces. During this time, Imperial Infocyte agent Iaeo, of Clade Vanus, follows Argonis and the Alpha Legion agents, interfering when she can to set Horuss forces against ...
The Jewish view on angels is derived from the Hebrew word malach, which means both emissary and angel. Basically, angels are Gcds messengers. Each one is created for a specific task, and ceases to exist when that task is completed. Some angels have ongoing missions and thus exist for eons; other exist for a fleeting moment. The Rambam, based on a careful examination of angelic verses throughout the Torah, organized the types of angels into a ten-level hierarchy. They are, to use a cytology analogy, the messenger RNA in the great cytoplasm of the universe. ...

The skin of the face, normally around the mouth, and the mucosa of the mouth and/or throat, as well as the tongue, swell over the period of minutes to hours. The swelling can also occur elsewhere, typically in the hands. The swelling can be itchy or painful. There may also be slightly decreased sensation in the affected areas due to compression of the nerves. Urticaria (hives) may develop simultaneously. In severe cases, stridor of the airway occurs, with gasping or wheezy inspiratory breath sounds and decreasing oxygen levels. Tracheal intubation is required in these situations to prevent respiratory arrest and risk of death. Sometimes, the cause is recent exposure to an allergen (e.g. peanuts), but more often it is either idiopathic (unknown) or only weakly correlated to allergen exposure. In hereditary angioedema, often no direct cause is identifiable, although mild trauma, including dental work and other stimuli, can cause attacks.[4] There is usually no associated itch or urticaria, as it ...
