Survival following localised aortic atherosclerotic plaque rupture


, : Survival following localised aortic atherosclerotic plaque rupture. Bmj Case Reports 2010: -

Spontaneous rupture of the aorta due to ruptured atherosclerotic plaque is extremely rare. Despite the high prevalence of atherosclerosis, only four cases have been reported to have been identified and treated successfully; the remainder were diagnosed postmortem. We report a surviving case of pericardial tamponade due to highly localised aortic atherosclerotic plaque rupture.

Ischemic stroke patients with active cancer are known to have poor clinical outcomes. However, the efficacy and safety of intravenous alteplase (IV t-PA) in this group are still unclear. In this study, we aimed to evaluate whether stroke patients...
