Purpose Rete middle cerebral artery (MCA) anomaly is characterized by a web-like network of arteries involving the first MCA segment (M1) and a normal downstream MCA. The detailed composition of this anomaly and the hemodynamic impacts on cerebral perfusion are rarely addressed. The purpose of this study was to elucidate the anatomical and hemodyna...

The effects of air pollution on sleep and dementia remain unclear. The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of air pollution on cognitive function as mediated by the sleep cycle. A cross-sectional study design was conducted to recruit 4866 subjects on which PSG had been performed. Fifty of them were further given a cognitive funct...
Article
Air pollution has been reported to be associated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Our study aim was to examine the mediating effects of air pollution on climate-associated health outcomes of COPD patients. A cross-sectional study of 117 COPD patients was conducted in a hospital in Taiwan. We measured the lung function, 6-min walki...

Background: Cerebral microbleeds (CMBs) are small (<1 cm) perivascular hemosiderin depositions. They may be visible in T2* or susceptibility weighted imaging magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequences. CMBs may indicate an increased risk of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) or vascular disease. Cerebral white matter changes indicate small vessel dise...
Article
Integrated PET/MRI imaging system has been widely used in clinical and research applications since it can simultaneously provide functional and structural information. Accurate attenuation correction (AC) is an important challenge that PET/MRI must overcome to obtain correct quantification results and clinical diagnosis. This study aimed to determi...

The correlation between lung cancer incidence and air pollution has been established in previous research, but the other detail impact of air pollution to lung cancer is still under investigation. This study aimed to explore if air pollution affected the subtype and staging of lung cancer. At the same time, we investigated the effect of individual...

Microrobots have been developed and extensively employed for performing the variety tasks with various applications. However, the intricate fabrication and actuation processes employed for microrobots further restrict their multitudinous applicability as well as the controllability in high accuracy. As an alternative, in this work an aquatic micror...

The development of emphysema has been linked to air pollution; however, the association of air pollution with the extent of lobar emphysema remains unclear. This study examined the association of PM2.5 (≤ 2.5 μm), NO2, and O3 level of exposure with the presence of emphysema in 86 chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients. Exposure to th...

Vertebro–venous fistula (VVF) refers to an abnormal arteriovenous shunt connecting the extracranial vertebral artery and the paraspinal venous structures. Coil embolization is the mainstay treatment of choice for VVF, and accurate definition of the endovascular target is mandatory. Traditionally, catheter-based angiograms are used for treatment pla...

The novelty of this study is that it identified the associations between PM2.5 deposition in the lung and the degree of emphysema in different lung lobes of COPD patients, especially in the right middle lobe and both upper lobes https://bit.ly/3k21ri0.

This study proposed a new experimental approach for the vascular and phenotype evaluation of the non-anesthetized zebrafish with representative imaging orientations for heart, pectoral fin beating, and vasculature views by means of the designed microfluidic device through inducing the optomotor response and hydrodynamic pressure control. In order t...

Testicular epidermoid cyst (TEC) is an uncommon benign testicular lesion that can be successfully cured via lesion enucleation and at the same time preserving patient's fertility. Doppler ultrasound (US), contrast-enhanced MRI and tumor markers are helpful in the diagnosis of TEC if the lesion does not show typical characteristics such as onion ski...
Article
In the current scenario of endovascular intervention, surgeons have to manually navigate the catheter within the complex vasculature of the human body under the guidance of X-ray. This manual intervention upsurges the possibilities of vessel damage due to frequent contact between the catheter and vasculature wall. In this context, a shape memory al...

A multipurpose microfluidic device that can be used for both micromixing and micropropulsion operations has always been in demand, as it would simplify the various process flows associated with the current micro-total analysis systems. In this aspect, we propose a biomimetic artificial cilia-based microfluidic device that can efficiently facilitate...

Endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) is a predominant surgical procedure to reduce the risk of aneurysm rupture in abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) patients. Endoleak formation, which eventually requires additional surgical reoperation, is a major EVAR complication. Understanding the etiology and evolution of endoleak from the hemodynamic pers...

Article
Endoleaks may evolve and become severe post-surgical complications in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs). After endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR), endoleaks may induce EVAR failure. Therefore, the early detection and management of endoleak development could help reduce the need for reoperation. An endoleak is characterized by...

In 2008 the overall rate of death attributable to cardiovascular disease, or CVD, is 244.8 per 100,000. On the basis of these mortality rate data, one American dies due to CVD on an average of every 39 seconds. Of these deaths, abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) accounts for 11,079 [1]. Although an estimate of the total economic burden of AAA is not a...

There are few cases of giant pediatric intraspinal teratoma. We report a case of a 4-month-old female baby with giant intraspinal teratoma. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the spine revealed a large intradural tumor from the C7 to S2 level, with solid, cystic, and fatty components. Partial surgical removal of the tumor showed pathology of a mat...

Background: Surgical management of pediatric hypervascular brain tumors is challenging because of the risk of bleeding. We sought to evaluate the technical factors associated with safety and outcome of preoperative embolization of pediatric hypervascular brain tumors. Materials and methods: Eight pediatric brain tumor patients received preoperat...
