Interventional radiologists at Penn Medicine are performing pharmacomechanical thrombolysis in conjunction with catheter-directed thrombolytic therapy to manage symptomatic acute and subacute deep vein thrombosis (DVT). The goal of the therapy is to remove the majority of the clot burden with significantly less thrombolytic medication than conventional catheter-directed thrombolysis alone, thereby decreasing […]

Background and Purpose—
We aimed to establish the prevalence, characteristics, and outcomes of intracranial atherosclerosis (ICAS) in China by a large, prospective, multicenter study.
We evaluated 2864 consecutive patients who experienced an acute cerebral ischemia <7 days after symptom onset in 22 Chinese hospitals. All patients underwent magnetic resonance angiography, with measurement of diameter […]
There are limited data on the prognostic implications of brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) assessment in patients with mildly symptomatic heart failure (HF) who receive cardiac resynchronization therapy with a defibrillator (CRT-D).
Methods and Results—
The effect of elevated baseline and 1-year BNP levels (dichotomized at the upper tertile BNP of 120 pg/mL) on […]

Metabolic encephalopathy and seizures are well-known serious manifestations of severe hyponatremia, because water equilibrates with cells leading to brain edema. Psychogenic polydipsia is a rare and often overlooked cause of hyponatremia, mostly described in the past in institutionalized patients with long-standing schizophrenia. However, psychogenic polydipsia has been observed recently in the community setting and outside […]

Background and Purpose—
In a substudy of the International Carotid Stenting Study (ICSS), more patients had new ischemic brain lesions on diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) after stenting (CAS) than after endarterectomy (CEA). In the present analysis, we compared characteristics of diffusion-weighted MRI lesions.
Number, individual and total volumes, and location of new diffusion-weighted […]
