PURPOSE: Growth of intracranial fusiform aneurysms (IFA) may become clinically problematic through a mass effect or rupture. We investigated the growth rate and factors contributing to growth in asymptomatic untreated IFA. METHOD: As a retrospective review, we assessed patients diagnosed with asymptomatic IFA between August 2000 and September 2014, all untreated. No acute or symptomatic dissecting lesions were considered. Clinical and serial angiographic follow-up data were analyzed, defining growth as expansion > 2 mm in one or more dimensions...

The precise mechanism of the development of chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) as a postoperative complication after aneurysmal clipping remains unclear. The purpose of this study was to identify the independent risk factors for CSDH after craniotomy for aneurysmal clipping and to elucidate the relationship between CSDH and subdural air (SDA) collection immediately after surgery. The medical records and radiologic data of 344 patients who underwent surgical clipping of unruptured aneurysms from July 2010 to July 2016 were retrospectively evaluated...

Intracranial aneurysm (IA) is a common lesion which often present asymptomatic until the time of rupture and result in subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). The pathogenesis of IA formation is complex and is influenced by both genetic and environmental risk factors. For exploring the detailed molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of IA, recent studies indicated inflammatory pathways and their genetic variants may as potential biomarkers. In this study, functionally relevant polymorphisms in the toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) were screened in 330 IA patients and 313 controls from a Han Chinese population...

Environmental and genetic risk factors contribute to the etiology of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs). Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) have been associated with the pathophysiology of AAAs. A prospective, nonrandomized case-control study was undertaken to investigate the risk factors for large AAAs (≥5.5 cm) among 175 male Greek AAA patients and to compare the results with a cohort of 166 male controls free from any aortic dilatation, as confirmed by ultrasonography from an existing AAA screening program in the same region...

A 50-year-old female patient with no significant medical history presented with left knee pain. Radiographs of the knee showed a circumferential swelling of the distal femur suggestive of neoplasia. Further evaluation revealed multiple lesions in the left iliac bone and proximal femur. Biopsy was suggestive of a reparative granuloma or an aneurysmal bone cyst. Laboratory assessment showed hypercalcaemia and elevated parathyroid hormone consistent with severe primary hyperparathyroidism. Osseous survey was significant for salt and pepper appearance of the skull...

Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is an irreversible condition where the abdominal aorta is dilated leading to potentially fatal consequence of aortic rupture. Multiple mechanisms are involved in the development and progression of AAA, including chronic inflammation, oxidative stress, vascular smooth muscle (VSMC) apoptosis, immune cell infiltration and extracellular matrix (ECM) degradation. Currently surgical therapies, including minimally invasive endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR), are the only viable interventions for AAAs...

There is little guidance in the literature on which thrombectomy technique is preferred in patients with acute ischemic stroke and concomitant aneurysms. Here, we present the case of a 58-year-old female with an acute ischemic stroke requiring emergent thrombectomy that was complicated by the presence of multiple, nonruptured intracranial aneurysms. Imaging confirmed an occlusion of the right middle cerebral artery and multiple nonruptured intracranial aneurysms. The patient was administered intravenous recombinant tissue plasminogen activator and the thrombus was aspirated via a direct aspiration first pass technique (ADAPT)...

Cerebral aneurysms in patients with extreme proximal tortuosity may contraindicate endovascular therapy as a result of both the approach and an inability to navigate a coil-compatible microcatheter into the aneurysm due to microcatheter length. We present a 72 year-old male with multiple medical comorbidities admitted with a grade 3, ruptured pericallosal aneurysm. Aortoiliac disease contraindicated a transfemoral approach and thus a 6 French 105 cm guide catheter was advanced through a 6 French short radial sheath into a bovine left common carotid artery...

A 48-year-old female with a symptomatic giant carotid cavernous aneurysm underwent endovascular treatment with multiple Pipeline Flex embolic devices (PED). The delivery catheter had to take a complicated course of multiple turns to cross the aneurysm, and its loop was tied in the aneurysm. When the catheter was to be withdrawn, it was apparent that the tied catheter had made a tight knot that bound the tail of the previous PED together. We successfully retrieved all of the system including the tied PED, and we used telescoping stents with five PEDs in the next operation...

For a case of dissecting vertebral artery aneurysm (DVAA) in a dominant vertebral artery (VA) or posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA)-involving lesion, stent-assisted coil embolization (SACE) is an effective technique to preserve blood flow of the VA. A 41-year-old man presented with subarachnoid hemorrhage. Angiography demonstrated DVAA on the left VA just distal to the PICA, and the right VA was thinner than the left. For this case, SACE was performed to preserve the left VA and PICA. On the 10th day, angiography showed recurrence of the dissection...
