BACKGROUND: Intracranial mycotic aneurysm (IMA) is a rare neurovascular disease and a well-known complication following infective endocarditis. IMAs potentially carry a high mortality risk due to intracranial hemorrhage. Therefore, initial treatment is crucial for IMA patients, but an optimal treatment strategy remains unknown. Herein, we report two cases of IMA patients treated with the current usual modalities, and we provide a comprehensive literature review to propose an optimal initial treatment strategy for IMAs...

Stroke is a devastating complication after intracranial aneurysm clipping. Understanding the risk factors that prognosticate perioperative stroke may help to identify patients that would benefit from neuroprotective therapy. This study assesses patient-specific independent predictors of perioperative stroke in relation to surgical aneurysm clipping. Additionally, this study evaluates the postoperative complications of stroke. We performed a retrospective chart review of 437 patients with ruptured and unruptured intracranial aneurysms, which underwent surgical clipping from 2006 to 2013...

Posterior communicating artery (PcomA) aneurysms are frequently encountered, but there are few publications on their morphology. A growing number of aneurysms are incidental findings, which makes evaluation of rupture risk important. Our goal was to identify morphological features and anatomical variants associated with PComA aneurysms and to assess parameters related to rupture. We studied CT angiographies of 391 consecutive patients treated between 2000 and 2014 at a single institution. We determined clinically important morphological parameters and performed univariate and multivariate analysis...

Behçet's disease is a systemic inflammatory disorder with a wide variety of cardiovascular complications. Intracranial aneurysm is extremely rare. Herein, we are presenting a 41-year-old male with Behçet's disease and a headache. A cranial computed tomography scan angiography showed unruptured right supra cavernus internal carotid aneurysm and right sylvian artery aneurysm. Treatment consisted of prednisone and azathioprine. Control imaging showed no aneurysm.

OBJECTIVE: Small unruptured aneurysms (<5 mm) are known for their very low risk of rupture, and are recommended to be treated conservatively. However, we encounter many patients with small ruptured aneurysms in the clinical practice. We aimed to investigate the incidence and characteristics of patients with small ruptured aneurysms. METHODS: We reviewed all patients admitted to our hospital with subarachnoid hemorrhage from January 2005 to December 2015. The patients were divided into two groups: those with aneurysms <5 mm (group S) and those with aneurysms ≥5 mm (group L)...

REVIEW
Jaechan Park, Hyojin Park
The doctrine of informed consent, as opposed to medical paternalism, is intended to facilitate patient autonomy by allowing patient participation in the medical decision-making process. However, regrettably, the surgical informed consent (SIC) process is invariably underestimated and reduced to a documentary procedure to protect physicians from legal liability. Moreover, residents are rarely trained in the clinical and communicative skills required for the SIC process. Accordingly, to increase professional awareness of the SIC process, a brief history and introduction to the current elements of SIC, the obstacles to patient autonomy and SIC, benefits and drawbacks of SIC, planning of an optimal SIC process, and its application to cases of an unruptured intracranial aneurysm are all presented...

OBJECTIVE: Postoperative visual outcomes following repair of unruptured paraclinoid aneurysms (UPAs) are not well defined. We aim to investigate the influence of treatment modality on visual function. METHODS: A systematic literature analysis using the Ovid Medline and EMBASE databases was performed, encompassing English language studies (published between 1996 - 2016) reporting treatment outcomes for UPAs. Rates of visual morbidity (new, permanent postoperative deficit, worsening preoperative deficit), angiographic (recurrence, retreatment) and clinical outcomes (death, disability, post-treatment SAH) were recorded...

BACKGROUND: Intracranial saccular aneurysms are acquired lesions that often present with neuro-ophthalmologic symptoms and signs. Recent advances in neurosurgical techniques, endovascular treatments, and neurocritical care have improved the optimal management of symptomatic unruptured aneurysms, but whether the chosen treatment has an impact on neuro-ophthalmologic outcomes remains debated. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: A review of the literature focused on neuro-ophthalmic manifestations and treatment of intracranial aneurysms with specific relevance to neuro-ophthalmologic outcomes was conducted using Ovid MEDLINE and EMBASE databases...

We report the case of a 49-year-old man with underlying hypertension who developed diplopia lasting 2 months. Magnetic resonance imaging and digital subtraction angiography showed multi-lobular unruptured aneurysms in the P2 portion of the posterior cerebral artery (PCA) migrating into the interpeduncular cistern of the midbrain. Because the shapes of the aneurysms were serpentine fusiform and the posterior communicating artery (PCoA) was the fetal type, we planned anastomosis of the occipital artery to the P4 portion of the PCA followed by endovascular obliteration of the parent artery including the aneurysms...

BACKGROUND: The presence of an intracranial aneurysm is contraindicated to recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (r-tPA) treatment for acute ischemic stroke. However, it is difficult to exclude asymptomatic intracranial aneurysms by using conventional, noncontrast head computed tomography (CT), which is the only neuroimaging suggested before r-tPA. Recent case reports and series have shown that administering r-tPA to patients with a pre-existing aneurysm does not increase the bleeding risk...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The estimates on the risk of rupture of intracranial aneurysms remain a controversial topic. Circumferential aneurysmal wall enhancement (CAWE) on vessel wall magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been described in unstable aneurysms. Sentinel headaches and third nerve palsy are possible symptoms prior to the rupture of intracranial aneurysms. In this study, we aimed to demonstrate that CAWE could be associated with these symptoms. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of consecutive symptomatic or asymptomatic patients with unruptured intracranial aneurysms who were examined by high-resolution MRI from October 2014 to November 2016...

INTRODUCTION: In endovascular embolization for intracranial aneurysms, it is important to properly control the coil insertion force. However, the force can only be subjectively detected by the subtle feedback experienced by the neurointerventionists at their fingertips. The authors envisioned a system that would objectively sense and quantify that force. In this article, coil insertion force was measured in cases of intracranial aneurysm using this sensor, and its actual clinical application was investigated...
