LV torsion during exercise in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) is not well known. Circumferential strain (CS) and left ventricular (LV) torsion (Tor) have not been evaluated during ischemia in these patients. We aimed to assess the effect of ischemia during exercise echocardiography (ExE) on CS and Tor. We studied a group of 73 patients with true positive ExE results (Ischemic group: ischemia plus an abnormal coronary angiogram) and a matched control group of 66 patients with negative ExE and either normal coronary angiography or low post-test probability of CAD...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Our aim was to assess the performance of flow-diverter stents. The pre- and end-of-treatment angiographies are commonly compared. However, the arterial flow rate may change between acquisitions; therefore, a better understanding of its influence on the local intra-aneurysmal hemodynamics before and after flow-diverter stent use is required. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-five image-based aneurysm models extracted from 3D rotational angiograms were conditioned for computational fluid dynamics simulations...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of complex intracranial aneurysms requires strategic pre-interventional or preoperative planning. In addition to modern three-dimensional (3D) rotational angiography, computed tomography angiography (CTA) or magnetic resonance angiogram (MRA), a solid, tangible 3D model may improve anatomical comprehension and treatment planning. A 3D rapid prototyping (RP) technique based on multimodal imaging data was evaluated for use in planning of treatment for complex aneurysmal configurations...

BACKGROUND: Three-dimensional rotational angiography (3DRA) offers more detailed anatomic information than 2D digital acquisition (2DDA). Concerns over potentially higher contrast and radiation doses have limited its routine use. OBJECTIVE: The primary objective of this study was to compare radiation doses required to obtain 3DRA using a customized low dose radiation protocol with 2DDA. The secondary objective was to compare total procedural radiation in pediatric cardiac catheterization procedures utilizing 3DRA to those that do not...

PURPOSE: Hemodynamic simulations are of increasing interest for the assessment of aneurysmal rupture risk and treatment planning. Achievement of accurate simulation results requires the usage of several patient-individual boundary conditions, such as a geometric model of the vasculature but also individualized inflow conditions. METHODS: We propose the automatic estimation of various parameters for boundary conditions for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) based on a single 3D rotational angiography scan, also showing contrast agent inflow...

BACKGROUND: Since its introduction, digital subtraction angiography has been considered the gold standard in diagnostic imaging for neurovascular disease. Modern post-processing techniques have made angiography even more informative to the cerebrovascular neurosurgeon or neurointerventionalist. Open neurosurgical procedures such as aneurysm clipping, extirpation of arteriovenous malformations, and extracranial-intracranial bypass remain important techniques in the armamentarium of a comprehensive cerebrovascular neurosurgeon...

BACKGROUND: Medullary-bridging vein dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF) is an uncommon type of DAVF with an aggressive clinical course due to direct fistulous shunting into medullary and brainstem veins. Important considerations need to be given to retrograde embolic migration or perforator involvement while treating these fistulas endovascularly with a liquid embolic agent. We report a lateral spinal artery feeding the DAVF, the recognition of which is important to avoid potential catastrophic complications during definitive therapy, and which has not been described before...

UNLABELLED: Virtual surgery planning has proven useful for reconstructing head and neck defects by fibula osteocutaneous free flaps (FOFF). Benefits include improved healing, function, and aesthetics, as well as cost savings. But available virtual surgery planning systems incorporating fibula in craniomaxillofacial reconstruction simulate only bone reconstruction without considering vessels and soft tissue. METHODS: The Haptics-Assisted Surgery Planning (HASP) system incorporates bone, vessels, and soft tissue of the FOFF in craniomaxillofacial defect reconstruction...

BACKGROUND: Bow hunter's syndrome, also known as rotational vertebrobasilar insufficiency, arises from mechanical compression of the vertebral artery during the neck rotation. Surgical options have been the mainstay treatment of choice. Postoperative imaging is typically used to assess adequate decompression. On the other hand, intraoperative assessment of decompression has been rarely reported. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 52-year-old male began to see "black spots," and experienced presyncope whenever he rotated his head toward the right...

CONTEXT: Variability in dimensions and course of vertebral artery (VA) makes it vulnerable to injury during surgery for congenital atlanto-axial dislocation (AAD) with or without an occipitalized atlas. AIMS: This prospective study attempts to define anatomical variations that render VA at the craniovertebral junction (CVJ) vulnerable to injury during transoral decompression and posterior stabilization procedures; and, to propose a classification that helps in preoperative risk stratification...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: In recurrent cerebral aneurysms treated by coil embolization, coil compaction is regarded as the presumptive mechanism. We test the hypothesis that aneurysm growth is the primary recurrence mechanism. We also test the hypothesis that the coil mass will translate a measurable extent when recurrence occurs. METHODS: An objective, quantitative image analysis protocol was developed to determine the volumes of aneurysms and coil masses during initial and follow-up visits from 3D rotational angiograms...

OBJECTIVE: An optimal microcatheter is necessary for successful coiling of an intracranial aneurysm. The optimal shape may be predetermined before the endovascular surgery via the use of a 3-dimensional (3D) printing rapid prototyping technology. We report a preliminary series of intracranial aneurysms treated with a microcatheter shape determined by the patient's anatomy and configuration of the aneurysm, which was fabricated with a 3D printer aneurysm model. METHODS: A solid aneurysm model was fabricated with a 3D printer based on the data acquired from the 3D rotational angiogram...

BACKGROUND: Intraoperative imaging of cerebral aneurysms may be desirable in emergency situations with large space-occupying hematomas or to visualize vessels after clip placement. Mobile 3-dimensional fluoroscopes are available in a number of neurosurgical departments and may be useful in combination with simple image postprocessing to depict cerebral vessels. OBJECTIVE: To assess whether intracranial aneurysms are detectable with appropriate image quality with intraoperative 3-dimensional fluoroscopy with intravenous contrast administration...

OBJECTIVE: Bronchial compression as a result of pulmonary artery and aortic arch stenting may cause significant respiratory distress. We set out to limit airway narrowing by endovascular stenting, by using simultaneous flexible bronchoscopy and graduated balloon stent dilatation, or balloon angioplasty to determine maximum safe stent diameter. METHODS: Between August 2010 and August 2013, patients with suspected airway compression by adjacent vascular structures, underwent CT or a 3D rotational angiogram to evaluate the relationship between the airway and the blood vessels...
