Cerebral gas embolism (CGE) from the thoracic cavity is commonly associated with invasive procedures, and cases of spontaneous CGE are rare. A 78-year-old man presented with severe spontaneous CGE associated with combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema (CPFE). To the best of our knowledge, the comorbidity of CGE in a CPFE patient has not been documented until now.… Read More...

A 73-year-old man was admitted with sudden right upper-limb weakness. He had a temporal headache on the left side and had a 4-month history of fever. Meandering of the left temporal artery (TA) with induration and high inflammatory responses (white blood cell count 22,500 per microliter, C-reactive protein 35.0 mg/dL, and elevated sedimentation rate [ESR] 80 mm/h) were observed.… Read More...

The development of cerebral infarction after transient ischemia is attributed to postischemic delayed hypoperfusion in the microvascular region. In the present study, we assessed the microvascular perfusion capacity of infused liposome-encapsulated hemoglobin (LEH) in a therapeutic approach for transient middle cerebral artery occlusion (tMCAO).… Read More...
