    We present 3 cases of stroke due to arterial dissection following chiropractic manipulation: (1) a 31-year-old woman with left vertebral dissection developed a large cerebellar infarct, (2) a 64-year-old man developed a left parietal infarct due to left carotid dissection and (3) a 51-year-old man developed right Horner's syndrome, fluctuating dysarthria, left facial droop, and left arm weakness due to right carotid dissection. Imaging studies and the literature are reviewed.

    Date June 2000
    Journal The American Journal of Emergency Medicine

    Thrombolytic therapy with t-PA for acute ischemic stroke may provide benefit in long-term outcome. This retrospective study was undertaken to evaluate appropriateness of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) protocol in the emergency department (ED). All patients with appropriate International Classification of Diseases, 9th revision (ICD-9) codes indicating stroke who presented to our 387-bed trauma-I community hospital during 1997 were included in the study. Of the nearly 35,000 patients screened, 201 patients satisfied our inclusion criteria. Mean age was 73.5 +/- 13.3 years. Men were evaluated and transported to computed tomography more rapidly and older patients more slowly. Nonwhites were more likely to arrive via emergency medical services (EMS). Average time from EMS arrival at scene to ED arrival was 22.7 minutes, and from ED arrival to triage was 8.4 minutes. The most common reason for exclusion from t-PA administration was delayed presentation (n = 188); this is the most serious barrier to use of t-PA for acute ischemic stroke. Extensive public education may combat this.

    Title Risk of Hypotension During Apnea Testing.
    Date June 1994
    Journal Archives of Neurology

    OBJECTIVE: To determine the safety of apnea testing. DESIGN: Prospective, consecutive study. SETTING: Inner-city trauma center. PATIENTS: A total of 70 apnea tests were performed on 61 comatose patients as part of the determination of brain death. RESULTS: Only 43 examinations (61%) were well tolerated. During 27 examinations (39%) patients either developed marked hypotension (> or = 15% drop in mean arterial pressure) (n = 23) or required prophylactic vasopressor manipulation (n = 4). Of the 27 examinations in which hypotension developed, 14 were aborted, two were tolerated despite marked hypotension, four were tolerated after administration of prophylactic epinephrine (n = 1) or dopamine hydrochloride (n = 3), and seven were successfully completed after increases in the rate of dopamine infusion during the test. CONCLUSIONS: Hypotension can pose a significant risk to patients undergoing apnea testing. Constant monitoring of vital signs throughout the test is essential to its safe completion.

    Date February 1993
    Journal Neurosurgery

    We prospectively studied 712 consecutive patients during a 1-year period who presented with amnesia or loss of consciousness after nonpenetrating head trauma and who had a perfect Glasgow Coma Scale score of 15. Of the 67 (9.4%) patients with acute traumatic lesions disclosed by computed tomography (CT) of the head, 2 required neurosurgical intervention and 1 died. Four factors were statistically correlated (P < 0.05) with abnormal CT findings: Older age, white race, signs of basilar skull fracture, and being either a pedestrian hit by a motor vehicle or a victim of an assault. Sex, length of antero- or retrograde amnesia, forward and reverse digit spans, object recall, focal abnormality on the general neurological exam, and subjective complaints were not statistically correlated with CT abnormality. Using step-wise discriminant function analysis, no single item or combination of items could be used to classify 95% of the patients into either the normal or abnormal CT group. Therefore, regardless of age, mechanism of injury, or clinical findings, intracranial lesions cannot be completely excluded clinically on head-trauma patients who have loss of consciousness or amnesia, even if the Glasgow Coma Scale score is 15. However, only two patients (0.3%) required neurosurgical intervention.

    Title Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum: Clinical, Neuroradiological and Cytogenetic Studies.
    Date June 1988
    Journal Neuropediatrics

    This study examined 35 patients with developmental disabilities who were referred for diagnostic evaluation that later revealed agenesis of the corpus callosum (ACC) by computerized tomography (CT). Sixteen had partial ACC, six had complete ACC, and one had a hypoplastic corpus callosum. In the other twelve cases, ACC existed, but the degree of callosal defect was not specified. Other intracranial defects were frequently present. Clinically, 15 patients (43%) had a history of seizures, 28 (82%) were mentally retarded or developmentally delayed and an additional five patients (15%) possessed borderline intelligence, and 10 (29%) had cerebral palsy. Ocular, spinal, and orofacial abnormalities were often present. Detailed summaries of these findings are given in Table I. Although several genetic causes of ACC have been identified, in the vast majority, the etiology is assumed to be multifactorial. In our study, two patients had trisomy 8 mosaicism and 11 (35%) had a family history of developmental disability. A review of the literature on chromosomal abnormalities in acalossal patients revealed 81 additional cases, which are discussed and outlined in Table II.

    Title Clinicopathological Findings Associated with Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum.
    Date November 1987
    Journal Brain & Development

    Seven hundred five cases of agenesis of the corpus callosum (ACC) are reviewed from the literature (n = 660) and from our own observations (n = 45). The diagnosis was made or confirmed using neuroradiological techniques (n = 519) and necropsy or surgery (n = 231). Association with abnormalities often of chromosomes 8, 11, 13-15 and 18 suggests their involvement in abnormal corpus callosum (CC) morphogenesis. Four syndromes (e.g. Aicardi, acrocallosal, Andermann and Shapiro) are characterized by ACC, while others are only sporadically associated (e.g. fetal alcohol syndrome, Dandy-Walker syndrome, Leigh disease, Arnold-Chiari II syndrome). In non-Aicardi patients, the male-to-female ratio was 3:2 and X-linked recessive inheritance is postulated to play a role in some cases. Common abnormalities in acallosal patients included: mental retardation (MR), 73% [corrected]; seizures, 42%; ocular anomalies, 42%; gyral abnormalities, 32%; hydrocephalus, 23%; other central nervous system (CNS) lesions, 29%; costovertebral defects, 24%. Developmental disabilities are not attributable to absence of the CC per se, but due to other CNS malformation or dysfunction, which may be genetic or non-genetic. Future research using recombinant DNA techniques will enable isolation and identification of specific chromosomal defects in those cases with a genetic abnormality.

    Title Frequency of Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum in the Developmentally Disabled Population As Determined by Computerized Tomography.
    Date October 1986
    Journal Pediatric Neuroscience

    Agenesis of the corpus callosum (ACC) is an infrequent congenital abnormality that has been diagnosed by necropsy, surgery, pneumoencephalography, computerized tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging. The reported prevalence has varied as a function of disability status of the population studied and diagnostic technique. This report found 33 cases of ACC in a consecutive series of 1,447 CTs of developmentally disabled individuals. The prevalence, 2.3%, is consistent with studies using other techniques. However, the significantly higher (p less than 0.01) rate from 1978 to 1979 suggests an initial tendency of neuroradiologists to over-diagnose ACC, and CT data from the 1970s may need to be reexamined.
