Off-hour effect on 3-month functional outcome after acute ischemic stroke: a prospective multicenter registry.
PLoS ONE
PUBLISHED: 08-28-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The time of hospital arrival may have an effect on prognosis of various vascular diseases. We examined whether off-hour admission would affect the 3-month functional outcome in acute ischemic stroke patients admitted to tertiary hospitals.

Cystatin C, a novel indicator of renal function, reflects severity of cerebral microbleeds.
BMC Neurol
PUBLISHED: 05-21-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Chronic renal insufficiency, diagnosed using creatinine based estimated glomerular filtration rate (GFR) or microalbumiuria, has been associated with the presence of cerebral microbleeds (CMBs). Cystatin C has been shown to be a more sensitive renal indicator than conventional renal markers. Under the assumption that similar pathologic mechanisms of the small vessel exist in the brain and kidney, we hypothesized that the levels of cystatin C may delineate the relationship between CMBs and renal insufficiency by detecting subclinical kidney dysfunction, which may be underestimated by other indicators, and thus reflect the severity of CMBs more accurately.

Pentraxin 3: a novel and independent prognostic marker in ischemic stroke.
Atherosclerosis
PUBLISHED: 05-02-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Pentraxin 3 (PTX3) is one of the pattern-recognition receptors related to the initial step of the immune response with C-reactive protein, but the physiologic and pathologic functions are not fully understood. The purpose of the current study was to determine the impact of PTX3 levels on mortality after ischemic stroke.

Clinical features of headache associated with mobile phone use: a cross-sectional study in university students.
BMC Neurol
PUBLISHED: 04-11-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Headache has been reported to be associated with mobile phone (MP) use in some individuals. The causal relationship between headache associated with MP use (HAMP) and MP use is currently undetermined. Identifying the clinical features of HAMP may help in clarifying the pathophysiology of HAMP and in managing symptoms of individuals with HAMP. The aim of the present study is to describe the clinical features of HAMP.

A Quantitative Comparison of the Vertebral Artery and Transverse Foramen Using CT Angiography.
J Clin Neurol
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The vertebral artery (VA) is important for the development of the transverse foramen (TF). Most studies of these structures have focused on anatomical anomalies. Therefore, we investigated quantitatively the association between the relative sizes of the TF and VA.

Fulminant cerebral infarction of anterior and posterior cerebral circulation after ascending type of facial necrotizing fasciitis.
J Stroke Cerebrovasc Dis
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Necrotizing fasciitis is a soft tissue infection that is characterized by extensive necrosis of the subcutaneous fat, neurovascular structures, and fascia. Cerebral infarction after facial necrotizing fasciitis has been rarely reported. A 61-year-old woman with diabetes was admitted with painful swelling of her right cheek. One day later, she was stuporous and quadriplegic. A computed tomographic scan of her face revealed right facial infection in the periorbital soft tissue, parotid, buccal muscle, and maxillary sinusitis. A computed tomographic scan of the brain revealed cerebral infarction in the right hemisphere, left frontal area, and both cerebellum. Four days later, she died from cerebral edema and septic shock. Involvement of the cerebral vasculature, such as the carotid or vertebral artery by necrotizing fasciitis, can cause cerebral infarction. Facial necrotizing fasciitis should be treated early with surgical treatment and the appropriate antibiotic therapy.

Acute cerebellar infarction associated with intravenous gammaglobulin treatment in idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura.
J Stroke Cerebrovasc Dis
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Intravenous immunoglobulins (IVIGs) are used for a variety of immunologic and hematologic disorders. Hemorheologic alteration or the rapid increase of platelet counts by IVIG administration can cause thrombotic adverse events. We present a 58-year-old woman with a previous diagnosis of idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura who developed cerebellar infarction immediately after IVIG treatment. We discuss a possible role of IVIG in cerebral ischemia and management strategies.

Vertebrobasilar angulation and its association with sudden sensorineural hearing loss.
Med. Hypotheses
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The pathogenesis of sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) is unclear, though some researchers postulate the major mechanism of onset to be via circulatory disturbance or cochlear inflammation. SSNHL can represent the sole manifestation of anterior inferior cerebellar artery infarction, and patients with a SSNHL may have higher than normal risk of future stoke. According to a vascular remodeling theory, vertebral arteries (VAs) are typically asymmetric with the basilar artery (BA) gradually curving in the opposite direction of the larger VA. Decreased wall shear stress on the inner surface of the curvature (weaker side of the vertebral artery) gives rise to an atherothrombogenic environment. It is hypothesized that angulation of the BA could contribute to the decline of anterior inferior cerebellar artery (AICA) flow or to the development of atheroma formation in the AICA orifice. Vertebrobasilar junction angulation could represent a simple and useful marker of SSNHL caused by a vascular compromise of the cochlea.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
