IL1B and VWF variants are associated with fibrinolytic early recanalization in patients with ischemic stroke.

IL1B and VWF variants are associated with fibrinolytic early recanalization in patients with ischemic stroke.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: There is a great interindividual variability among patients with acute ischemic stroke regarding the response to intravenous tissue-type plasminogen activator treatment. The aim of this study was to identify genetic variants associated with recanalization, and thus treatment efficacy, after tissue-type plasminogen activator administration.

Biological signatures of brain damage associated with high serum ferritin levels in patients with acute ischemic stroke and thrombolytic treatment.

Biological signatures of brain damage associated with high serum ferritin levels in patients with acute ischemic stroke and thrombolytic treatment.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Increased body iron stores have been related to greater oxidative stress and brain injury in clinical and experimental cerebral ischemia and reperfusion. We aimed to investigate the biological signatures of excitotoxicity, inflammation and blood brain barrier disruption potentially associated with high serum ferritin levels-related damage in acute stroke patients treated with i.v. t-PA.

Imaging of breast implants-a pictorial review.

Imaging of breast implants-a pictorial review.

The number of women with breast implants is increasing. Radiologists must be familiar with the normal and abnormal findings of common implants. Implant rupture is a well-known complication after surgery and is the main cause of implant removal. Although mammography and ultrasonography are the standard first steps in the diagnostic workup, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the most useful imaging modality for the characterisation of breast implants because of its high spatial resolution and contrast between implants and soft tissues and absence of ionising radiation.
