Background and importance The marginal tentorial artery runs over the free edge of the tentorium. Different origins have been described, always involving branches of the carotid artery. We report the superior cerebellar artery as an unknown origin of this artery. We developed our strategy in a case of a tentorial meningioma mainly supplied by this artery. Clinical presentation A 53-year-old man was admitted in our institution for the surgical treatment of a large tentorial and petroclival meningioma. A 2D conventional angiogram was insufficient to detect the tumoral blush...

The endovascular treatment of acute ischemic stroke has become a standard procedure. The combination of multiple neuroendovascular devices provides more possibilities for the improvement of the thrombectomy technique. We describe a modified retrieval technique using a distal intracranial catheter (DIC) for the semi-retrieval of stentriever during the thrombectomy procedure. The retrograde semi-retrieval technique involves completely unfolding the stent retriever by pulling a Navien catheter and the partial re-sheath of a retrievable stent forming a tapered configuration by pushing the Navien catheter, which results in the thrombi being embedded into the strut, securing the clot within the stent and there being a shorter distance for the clot to travel...

Background The selection of a pre-shaped microcatheter or a shaping method must be carefully considered for successful aneurysm coiling. The objective of this report is to verify the use of intravascular placement to establish an appropriate microcatheter shape. Methods Fifteen patients (15 aneurysms) were included in this study because of the predicted difficulty of microcatheter insertion and stabilisation. The SL-10 straight microcatheter was inserted into the parent artery until the tip of the catheter passed through the neck of the aneurysm...

We hereby report a novel technical approach for the treatment of acute stroke with underlying tandem occlusion. The so-called retriever wire supported carotid artery revascularization (ReWiSed CARe) technique, utilizing the wire of a stent-retriever as a guiding wire for carotid artery stenting, is technically feasible in tandem occlusions caused by an internal carotid artery (ICA) dissection or high grade ICA stenosis. This technique eliminates the need to use a long microwire in order to maintain the position inside the true lumen of a dissection...

Objective The aim of this study was to construct an in vivo carotid siphon model for testing neurovascular devices for endovascular interventions. Methods A model of a human carotid siphon was pre-shaped using a glass tube from a human cadaver and used to confine a segment of one side of the common carotid artery (CCA) in canines. This segment of CCA with the glass carotid siphon on was interposed end-to-end onto the contralateral CCA so as to simulate a human carotid artery siphon in vivo. Two weeks later, the siphon model was evaluated using computed tomography angiography and digital subtraction angiography, and the covered stent specially designed for intracranial vasculature was navigated through the siphon model for a longitudinal flexibility test...

Objective Intracranial spontaneous vertebral artery dissecting aneurysms commonly occur in the third to fifth decades of life, and are mostly associated with hypertension. Patients present with intracranial haemorrhage or thromboembolic events. Patients who present with intracranial haemorrhage carry about a 70% risk of recurrent bleeding. Patients with a posterior-inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) or ipsilateral dominant vertebral artery involve selecting which parent vessel could not be sacrificed. Recent reconstructive techniques such as stent-assisted coiling embolisation and flow-diverting stents are effective treatments of choice...

A 78-year-old man was referred to our institution with a predominantly progressive numbness of both legs, and bladder dysfunction with urinary retention. He was diagnosed as the symptomatic arteriovenous fistula of the filum terminale (AVFFT). A trans-arterial embolization (TAE) of the arteriovenous shunt was planned for his symptomatic AVFFT. The long distance between the origin of the radiculo meningeal artery (Th8) and the site of the fistula (S1) resulted in the first TAE having a feeder occlusion. The length of accessible feeder in the first TAE was the longest (about 40 cm) as the past reports of the endovascular therapy...

Background Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) is a syndrome defined by elevated intracranial hypertension without radiographic evidence of a mass lesion in the brain. Dural venous sinus stenosis has been increasingly recognized as a treatable cause, and dural venous sinus stenting (DVSS) is increasingly performed. Methods A 5 year single-center retrospective analysis of consecutive patients undergoing DVSS for medically refractory IIH. Results There were 43 patients with a mean imaging follow-up of 6...

We have performed stenting in 11 patients with symptomatic vertebral arterial orifice stenosis refractory to medical treatment or impairment in anterior circulation. Three of the 11 patients experienced asymptomatic severe in-stent restenosis or occlusion. Bare metal stents were used in those three patients, two of whom received revascularization therapy. Development of sufficient cervical collateral channels reconstituting the distal vertebral artery was the common feature in patients with asymptomatic in-stent restenosis...

Background Emergency stent placement in the extracranial internal carotid artery in combination with anterior circulation thrombectomy is a routine procedure. Yet, precise indications and clinical safety in this setting remains controversial. Present data for mechanical thrombectomy include few studies with acute stenting of tandem occlusions. We evaluated the feasibility, safety and clinical outcome of this endovascular treatment in a retrospective analysis of all consecutive cases at a comprehensive stroke centre...

It is postulated that hemodynamic changes occur in the distal vascular bed post-deployment of Pipeline Embolization Devices (PEDs). In this paper, we evaluate changes in the contrast transit times (TTs) on digital subtraction angiography (DSA) post-PED interventions. DSA films were analyzed using custom-made software for the time-density relationship at baseline and compared to post-PED deployment. All analyses were performed within the middle cerebral artery (MCA) M1 segment. Analyses included TT10%-100% (time needed for the contrast to change from 10% image intensity to 100%), TT100%-10%, and TT25%-25%...

Background We retrospectively assessed the efficacy and safety of manual aspiration thrombectomy (MAT) using a Penumbra catheter in patients with acute migrated middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion. Methods We conducted a retrospective review of patients who underwent MAT using Penumbra 4 or 5 MAX reperfusion catheters for the treatment of acute MCA occlusion between January 2012 and December 2015. A migrated thrombus was defined as distal migration greater than ≥1 cm on initial cerebral angiography compared with preprocedural angiographic findings...

In endovascular coil embolization of intracranial aneurysms, very soft coils, often called "finishing coils," are usually selected in the final stage of coil embolization. The authors developed a radiolucent coil made of thin nylon thread to evaluate the performance of coils under a situation simulating the course of embolization. The characteristics of various types of finishing coils were investigated using radiolucent coils. Experimental embolization was performed with a silicone aneurysm filled with radiolucent coils simulating the final stage of embolization...

Background and purpose Different techniques regarding efficient utilization of thrombectomy devices have been reported. Here, we described a novel technique named ADVANCE that is based on advancing a distal access catheter over the stent retriever. In this study, we aimed to report our initial results with this novel thrombectomy technique. Methods and results Sixty-seven consecutive acute anterior circulation ischemic stroke patients (35 male, 32 female) between January 2015 and January 2016 who were treated by mechanical thrombectomy were included in this prospective study...

The horizontal stenting technique facilitates endovascular treatment of wide-necked bifurcation intracranial aneurysms. Previous literature shows, however, that subsequent coil embolization at initial treatment results in incomplete obliteration in many cases. The authors present two consecutive cases of wide-necked large bifurcation aneurysms to describe an additional coil embolization technique following horizontal stenting. The patients were a 53-year-old female with an unruptured internal carotid artery terminus aneurysm and a 57-year-old female with a recurrent basilar artery tip aneurysm...

Background Loeys-Dietz syndrome (LDS) is a recently recognized autosomal dominant connective tissue disease. The manifestations of LDS include vascular tortuosity, scoliosis, craniosynostosis, aneurysm and aortic dissections. Clinical presentation A 35-year-old woman treated with Stanford type B aortic dissection and breast cancer was referred to us for Borden type II dural arteriovenous fistula (dAVF) draining to the vein of Galen, involving the midline of tentorium cerebelli. The dAVF was treated successfully by combined transarterial and transvenous embolization...

Gregory Gascou, Riccardo Ferrara, Dominique Ambard, Mathieu Sanchez, Kyriakos Lobotesis, Franck Jourdan, Vincent Costalat
Background and purpose Pore density (PD), surface metal coverage (SMC) and the number of wires are all different parameters which can influence the efficacy of a flow disruptor/diverter. Nevertheless, the relative importance of a parameter to induce intra-aneurysmal blood stasis is still poorly evaluated. Therefore, comparison between devices based on a unique value is not reliable. The aim of this study was to propose a new bench top parameter (the pressure reduction coefficient (PRC; ξ)) in order to assess the global haemodynamic effect of each flow diverter/disruptor to slow flow...
