Fusiform dilation of the internal carotid artery (FDICA) is an infrequent vascular complication following resection of suprasellar lesions in the pediatric population, and its course appears to be benign without apparent clinical symptoms. However, data correlating symptomatic FDICA with bypass surgery are scarce. The authors here report 2 symptomatic cases that were treated using internal maxillary artery bypass more than 5 years after total removal of a craniopharyngioma at an outside institution. Both cases of FDICA were resected to relieve the mass effect and to expose the craniopharyngioma...

The aim of this study was to investigate the safety and effectiveness of endovascular stenting for extracranial carotid artery aneurysms (ECAAs) and evaluate the mid-term outcomes.Twelve consecutive symptomatic patients (mean age 43.8 ± 14.9 years; 8 men) with ECAAs who were treated with endovascular stenting between 1997 and 2015 were retrospectively analyzed. Clinical follow-up data including symptoms and neurological events were obtained from outpatient records. Imaging follow-up with duplex ultrasound and/or computed tomographic angiography (CTA) was performed to examine the aneurysm obliteration and patency of the stents at 3, 6, 12 months and yearly thereafter...

Intraoperative indocyanine green(ICG)videoangiography is simple, less invasive, and enables real-time observation of hemodynamics during neurovascular surgery. In this article, we describe a case of ruptured distal middle cerebral artery aneurysm, which was unclippable and required parent artery occlusion with extracranial-intracranial bypass. Under temporary clipping of the proximal vessel, ICG videoangiography demonstrated the proper target vessel for bypass through delayed and retrograde filling of the dye...

Patients who have had a stroke are at high risk for recurrent stroke, myocardial infarction, and vascular death. Prevention of these events should be initiated promptly after stroke, because many recurrent events occur early, and should be tailored to the precise cause of stroke, which may require specific treatment. Lifestyle advice including abstinence from smoking, regular exercise, Mediterranean-style diet, and reduction of salt intake and alcohol consumption are recommended for all patients with stroke...

OBJECT Management of complex aneurysms of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) can be challenging. Lesions not amenable to endovascular techniques or direct clipping might require a bypass procedure with aneurysm obliteration. Various bypass techniques are available, but an algorithmic approach to classifying these lesions and determining the optimal bypass strategy has not been developed. The objective of this study was to propose a comprehensive and flexible algorithm based on MCA aneurysm location for selecting the best of multiple bypass options...

Extracranial internal carotid artery (ICA) aneurysms located at the entrance of the skull are a rare pathology. Surgical treatment is indicated for this pathology because of the risk of arterio-arterial embolism and the development of cerebrovascular disease. The domestic and international literature reports single cases or small group cases of successful surgical treatment of patients with distal internal carotid artery aneurysms associated with pathological kinking of the artery. Open surgery for aneurysms of this localization is complicated because of a high injury risk associated with the approach...

Near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) imaging enables non-invasive monitoring of molecular and cellular processes in live animals. Here we demonstrate the suitability of NIRF imaging to investigate the neutrophil response in the brain after transient middle cerebral artery occlusion (tMCAO). We established procedures for ex vivo fluorescent labelling of neutrophils without affecting their activation status. Adoptive transfer of labelled neutrophils in C57BL/6 mice before surgery resulted in higher fluorescence intensities over the ischaemic hemisphere in tMCAO mice with NIRF imaging when compared with controls, corroborated by ex vivo detection of labelled neutrophils using fluorescence microscopy...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Hemicraniectomy is a decompressive surgery used to remove a large bone flap to allow edematous brain tissue to bulge extracranially. However, early indicators of the decompressive effects of hemicraniectomy are unclear. We investigated whether reduction of midline shift following hemicraniectomy is associated with improved consciousness and survival in patients with malignant middle cerebral artery infarctions. METHODS: We studied 70 patients with malignant middle cerebral artery infarctions (MMI) who underwent hemicraniectomies...

The authors describe a case of a basilar trunk aneurysm with long-term follow-up after successful bypass and proximal occlusion. A 64-year-old woman had a giant aneurysm of the basilar trunk and underwent external carotid artery-to-posterior cerebral artery vein graft bypass surgery and proximal clipping of the basilar artery, which was followed by low-dose aspirin (100 mg/d) treatment. No ischemic symptoms and lesions developed and the thrombosed aneurysm was stable during 11 years of follow-up. An extracranial-intracranial high flow bypass combined with immediate proximal occlusion and aspirin administration may be an acceptable treatment option for patients with giant posterior circulation aneurysms...

The marked cerebral hypoperfusion of moyamoya disease (MMD) can be treated with encephaloduroarteriosynangiosis (EDAS), an indirect revascularization surgery. Collateral establishment after the surgery is a gradual process; thus, easy access to serial assessment is of great importance. We prospectively recruited 15 pediatric moyamoya patients who underwent EDAS surgeries on a total of 19 hemispheres. Ultrasonography of extracranial and intracranial arteries was performed pre-operatively and post-operatively at 1, 3 and 6 mo...

OBJECTIVE Majewski osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism Type II (MOPD II) is a rare genetic disorder. Features of it include extremely small stature, severe microcephaly, and normal or near-normal intelligence. Previous studies have found that more than 50% of patients with MOPD II have intracranial vascular anomalies, but few successful surgical revascularization or aneurysm-clipping cases have been reported because of the diminutive arteries and narrow surgical corridors in these patients. Here, the authors report on a large series of patients with MOPD II who underwent surgery for an intracranial vascular anomaly...

Many intracranial as well as extracranial complications can be seen following craniosynostosis surgeries. In this article, we would like to share an extremely rare complication of the infarction of the recurrent artery of Heubner, occurred following frontoorbital advancement. In this case, an 18-month-old male patient underwent supraorbital bar and frontal bone remodeling surgery for nonsyndromic metopic suture synostosis. The preoperative neurosurgical evaluation revealed no signs of increased intracranial pressure...

The rupture of an extracranial vertebral artery aneurysm has only been rarely described in the literature and treatment options are therefore not standardized. Here we report the successful endovascular repair of a spontaneously ruptured extracranial left vertebral artery aneurysm using Onyx instillation. A 48-year old woman was transferred to our clinic after having been intubated due to a massive hematoma of the left neck. A contrast enhanced computed tomography (CECT) showed a rupture of the left extracranial vertebral artery...

Symptomatic extracranial vertebral artery (VA) dissection may need surgery. We describe such a case successfully treated with atlantoaxial fusion based on its rare dynamic angiographic findings. A 27-year-old woman suffered from repeated brainstem and cerebellar infarctions from a left extracranial VA dissecting aneurysm. Dynamic angiography showed the dissecting aneurysm of the V3 segment in the neutral head position, and deflation of the aneurysm during rightward head rotation. She underwent posterior atlantoaxial fusion, and the lesion was repaired with no subsequent ischemia...

BACKGROUND: Carotid artery stenosis is a risk factor for stroke after surgical aortic valve replacement, but it is unknown whether carotid and vertebral artery disease impacts the risk of stroke after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). METHODS: We reviewed 294 consecutive cases of TAVR at a tertiary care medical centre. Thirty-one patients without preoperative carotid/vertebral duplex ultrasonograms were excluded. Carotid or vertebral artery disease was defined on the basis of >50% stenosis...
