Toll-like receptors are transmembrane proteins which sense and transmit infectious and inflammatory responses to the cells expressing them. Therapeutic strategies for the blockade of excessive Toll-like receptor signaling are being actively pursued for several diseases. Recently, Sparstolonin B, isolated from Chinese herb, which suppresses selectively Toll-like receptors has been studied... Leggi di più

Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) causes respiratory illnesses such as pneumonia, and has been reported to cause acute flaccid myelitis. Enterovirus A71 (EV-A71) is known to cause cardiopulmonary failure due to brainstem encephalitis, but there have been few reports of these conditions being associated with EV-D68. Outbreaks of EV-D68 infection have occurred... Leggi di più

AbstractFalcotentorial meningiomas are rare lesions that occur along the midline at the junction of the falx cerebri and tentorium. When large, these lesions pose a surgical challenge because of the risk of neurologic deficits, including cortical blindness. Delicate structures at risk during resection of these lesions include the sagittal sinus,... Leggi di più

AbstractThis patient presented with a cavernous malformation in the inferior posterior third ventricle extending into the aqueduct. The patient was positioned supine on the operating room table with the head rotated into the horizontal plane. The choroidal fissure is opened lateral to the choroid plexus. This technique allows for the... Leggi di più

AbstractThis patient had a large left ventral thalamic cavernous malformation abutting the third ventricle with evidence of recent hemorrhage. The patient was placed supine with the head in the horizontal position with the dependent hemisphere down to permit use of the anterior interhemispheric transcallosal approach. The lateral ventricle is entered,... Leggi di più

AbstractMedial temporal cavernous malformations can involve transgression of eloquent parenchyma. For a tentorium-abutting temporal cavernous malformation, the supracerebellar transtentorial corridor is a suitable approach with minimal parenchymal insult. Using dynamic and gravity retraction, lighted bipolar forceps and suction, and stereotactic navigation, this trajectory provides a minimally invasive corridor. The patient... Leggi di più

AbstractPosterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) aneurysms are infrequent compared with other intracranial aneurysms and are more commonly distal in origin (35% of PICA aneurysms are distal vs 6.5% of other aneurysms). This makes PICA aneurysms a surgical challenge that requires careful consideration of the patient's angiographic anatomy and perfusion needs... Leggi di più

Purpose of review Massive haemorrhage is a significant cause of mortality and morbidity in a variety of clinical settings, although most research has been related to trauma patients. Military studies from recent conflicts found that higher ratios of plasma to red blood cells (RBCs) were associated with increased survival in... Leggi di più
