Carotid artery stenting during endovascular thrombectomy for acute ischemic stroke with tandem occlusion: the Italian Registry of Endovascular Treatment in Acute Stroke.

Purpose The purpose of the management of tandem extracranial internal carotid artery and intracranial large vessel occlusion during endovascular thrombectomy for acute ischemic stroke is under scrutiny. Compared to those not treated with CAS during EVT, we wanted to investigate the results of AIS patients with tandem occlusion treated with carotid artery stenting. Acute Stroke Methods We conducted a cohort study using results from AIS patients enrolled in the Italian Registry of Endovascular Treatment in Acute Stroke. Among the 466 AIS patients with TO, CAS, and no-CAS patients were 226, with 122 CAS patients and no-CAS patients 226. CAS was associated with lower 3 months' mortality and higher rates of successful recanalization after adjustment for variables that are related to 3 months' mortality and successful recanalization, respectively. Conclusions Among AIS patients with TO, CAS, and EVT was associated with a higher risk of successful reperfusion and a reduced risk of 3 months' mortality in comparison to AIS patients.

Time and Brain Region-Dependent Excitatory Neurochemical Alterations in Bilateral Common Carotid Artery Occlusion Global Ischemia Model.

Neurochemical changes in cerebral ischemia can be caused by strictt metabolic regulation in discrete brain regions. Accumulation of extracellular glutamate is one of the first neurochemical changes that occur during cerebral ischemia. Understanding the complex neurochemical pathways involved in cerebral ischemia-mediated excitotoxicity before and during intervention of revascularization and reperfusion may have a large effect on future therapeutic targets for clinical stroke recovery. In the bilateral common carotid artery occlusion model of global ischemia, this research investigated the effect of time and brain regions on excitatory neurochemical indices. Male Wistar rats were exposed to BCCAO for 15 and 60 minutes to determine the effect of ischemia duration on excitatory neurochemical indices in the separated brain regions.

Central retinal artery occlusion secondary to presumed traumatic carotid artery dissection in a healthy child.

Purpose: This is a rare case of a 13-year-old healthy child with CRAO secondary to carotid artery dissection, which occurred after a neck rotation procedure. Patients One patient was identified in the case report, and patients One patient was named in the case report. Discussion/conclusion Internal carotid artery dissection is a rare occurrence, especially in children, that can lead to significant cerebral-ocular ischemic events.

Comparison of 30-Day Outcomes after Carotid Artery Stenting in Patients with Near-Occlusion and Severe Stenosis: A Propensity Score Matching Analysis.

Background and purpose Carotid artery near-occlusion is a specific stenosis with complete or partial lumel loss and intracranial collaterals. With a control group of patients with severe stenosis, this research aimed to compare 30-day outcomes and 10-year survival in patients undergoing carotid artery stenting for near-occlusion. Materials and methods We used information from a registry of 639 patients who underwent 789 carotid artery stenting procedures between 2005 and 2021. Prosecutors' scores matchless policy yielded 84 participants in the near-occlusion group compared to 168 subjects in the control group. In the same cohort, survival in the near-occlusion group versus the control group was 78% versus 53. 3 percent versus 53. 3%, with 53. 3% at 53. 3%. Conclusions Carotid stent placement in patients with ICA near-occlusion was not connected with an elevated risk of stroke or death in 30-days compared to severe stenosis.
