Ophthalmology Resident Oculofacial Surgery Case Exposure: An ACGME Case Log Analysis.
Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery; Abousy M, Schilling A et. al.

Jan 27th, 2023 - The authors quantified trends in resident oculofacial surgery exposure between 2009 and 2018, reviewed specific procedure volume, and correlated procedure volume with program characteristics. The authors requested de-identified case logs of reside...

Lessons of the month: Giant cell arteritis with Horner's syndrome and vertebral dissect...
Clinical Medicine (London, England); Vaidya K, Gor S et. al.

Jan 26th, 2023 - We present a case of an 82-year-old woman presenting with left-sided Horner's syndrome and stroke. She also had a 6-week history of intermittent dizziness, reduced appetite, lethargy, muscle stiffness and weight loss. Examination revealed left tem...

Impairment of central retinal artery hemodynamics in affected and fellow eyes in giant ...
Autoimmunity Reviews; Boutigny A, Mohamedi N et. al.

Jan 18th, 2023 - Permanent visual impairment is a major complication of giant cell arteritis (GCA). We investigated the added value of color Doppler imaging (CDI) of the central retinal artery (CRA) in patients with suspected GCA for early risk evaluation before t...

Atypical giant cell arteritis presentations diagnosed with FDG-18 whole body PET imaging.
BMJ Case Reports; Vijayaraghavan N, Martin J et. al.

Jan 12th, 2023 - Two male patients aged above 70 years were investigated for chronic non-specific symptoms and evidence of significant systemic inflammation, but without classic 'cranial symptoms' of giant cell arteritis (GCA). Each patient had multiple non-diagno...

Validating the Clinical Value of Temporal Artery Biopsy.
Annals of Vascular Surgery; Fadoul MA, McMackin KK et. al.

Jan 8th, 2023 - Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is a potentially devastating disease that may require treatment with high dose steroids. Traditionally, diagnosis requires patients to meet at least three of five clinical criteria, one of which is a positive temporal ar...

Histopathological Analysis of Temporal Artery Biopsy Following Dynamic Full-field Optical Coherence Tomography, a Comparison to Conventional Histopathological Findings in Patients With Suspected Gi...

Dec 23rd, 2022 - Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is a type of large vessel granulomatous vasculitis responsible for the inflammation of the aorta and the branches of the external carotid, notably temporal arteries. The diagnosis of GCA relies upon the identification of...

FDG Digital PET/CT as First Line Investigation for Giant Cell Arteritis

Jun 14th, 2022 - Giant cell arteritis (GCA) causes inflammation of the arteries and can lead to serious complications such as blindness, necessitating rapid diagnosis and treatment. Although older technology non-digital PET/CT scans are routinely used for the diag...

Clinical and Immunogenetic Characterization of Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA) and Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR)

May 20th, 2022 - Giant cell arteritis (GCA), also known as temporal arteritis, is the most common form of primary systemic vasculitis, with up to 75,000 cases a year identified in the EU and US. It occurs almost exclusively in people over the age of 50 years and i...

Validation of a Diagnostic Algorithm of Giant Cell Arteritis

Apr 20th, 2022 - Giant cell arteritis (GCA or temporal arteritis or cranial arteritis) or Horton disease is a vasculitis that occurs in older adults, affecting vessels of medium and large caliber. The diagnosis of GCA is a challenge for general practitioners and s...

Giant Cell Arteritis - Optimization of Diagnostics

Feb 21st, 2022 - A prospective study. Investigating the use of ultrasound, temporal artery biopsy, biomarkers and 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography for establishing a diagnosis of giant cell (temporal) arteritis.

Giant Cell Arteritis Fast-Track Clinics Pave Way for Greater Ultrasound Use in US

Dec 7th, 2021 - Temporal artery biopsy has been the standard for diagnosing giant cell arteritis (GCA), but vascular ultrasound, a procedure that's less invasive, less time-intensive, less expensive, and more convenient, has gained widespread use in Europe, and n...

Vasculitis Rates Rise With Earth's Latitude

Mar 17th, 2021 - The incidence of the vasculitis known as giant cell arteritis varied considerably according to geography, a meta-analysis found. The overall global incidence of giant cell arteritis, calculated as 50-year incidence rates, was 10 per 100,000 (95% C...

Frozen Sections Can Guide Biopsies for Giant Cell Arteritis, but Are They Feasible?

Feb 24th, 2021 - Positive findings from frozen sections of a first temporal artery biopsy can effectively identify giant cell arteritis, ruling out in those cases the need to perform a second biopsy on the contralateral side and arguing against the use of simultan...

Frozen sections can guide biopsies for giant cell arteritis, but are they feasible?
Heidi Splete

Feb 23rd, 2021 - Positive findings from frozen sections of a first temporal artery biopsy can effectively identify giant cell arteritis, ruling out in those cases the need to perform a second biopsy on the contralateral side and arguing against the use of simultan.

Researchers Home In on Optimal Biopsy Length for Giant Cell Arteritis

Sep 1st, 2020 - A new retrospective analysis has found 1.5 cm to 2 cm to be the optimal length of a temporal artery biopsy for detecting giant cell arteritis. Longer lengths did not yield enough improvement in diagnosis to justify the increased risk of complicati...
