Brain MRI may be overrated in deciding about valve surgery

By Advancing the Science contributor Advancing the Science contributor

By Jay Furst Blood clots moving to the brain are a frequent — and dangerous — complication for patients with endocarditis. Endocarditis is an infection of the heart’s inner lining that can damage heart valves and contribute to the formation of blood clots. As many as 80 percent of endocarditis patients who undergo magnetic resonance […]

MOG antibody-associated spinal cord inflammation can mimic acute flaccid myelitis

By Advancing the Science contributor Advancing the Science contributor

Mayo Clinic researchers report that spinal cord inflammation associated with an antibody to myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein can mimic acute flaccid myelitis, a rare but serious disease linked to certain viruses that particularly affects children and can result in paralysis. The researchers show that detecting the MOG antibody has important treatment and prognostic implications. The findings […]
