DAWN trial: solution or problem?

Key point: To assess the mean score for disability on the utility-weighted modified Rankin scale and the rate of functional independence (mRS≤2) at 90 days. The main results of the “magnificent seven” (MR-CLEAN, ESCAPE, EXTEND-IA, SWIFT PRIME, REVASCAT, THRACE, THERAPY) regarding stroke therapy showed that endovascular thrombectomy had a clinical benefit when it was performed within Read more about DAWN trial: solution or problem?[…]

Assessment of vasculature of meningiomas and the effects of embolization with intra-arterial MR perfusion imaging: a feasibility study

Martin AJ1, Cha S, Higashida RT, Cullen SP, Halbach V, Dowd CF, McDermott MW, Saloner DA. Pubmed BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Embolization of meningiomas has emerged as a preoperative adjuvant therapy that has proved effective in mitigating blood loss during surgical resection. Arterial supply to these tumors is typically identified by diffuse areas of parenchymal staining after Read more about Assessment of vasculature of meningiomas and the effects of embolization with intra-arterial MR perfusion imaging: a feasibility study[…]
