subarachanoid hemorrhage

Priyanka Gupta, Girija Prasad Rath, Sujoy Banik, Charu Mahajan
An elderly woman with subarachanoid hemorrhage presented to our interventional neuroradiology suite for coil embolization of multiple intracranial aneurysms. The patient had difficult vascular access for the passage of microcatheter; hence, the embolization procedure was carried out with direct puncture of the left common carotid artery. During the procedure, the patient developed thromboembolism which was treated by administration of an antiplatelet agent, abciximab. At the end of procedure, she developed airway compromise due to extension of a local neck hematoma into the superior mediastinum...

BACKGROUND: Vasospasm is an important complication observed after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and is a frequent cause of mortality and morbidity. We present our routine management of vasospasm after SAH and emphasize the importance of transcranial Doppler (TCD) ultrasonography in this management. METHOD: Historical records and images were sampled from June 2005 to September 2011 for 110 patients with SAH due to ruptured aneurysm in the anterior circulation. All surviving patients were followed after discharge...

A variety of intraluminal nylon filament has been used in rat middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) models. However the lesion extent and its reproducibility vary among laboratories. The properties of nylon filament play a part of reasons for these variations. In the present study, we used paraffin-coated nylon filament for rat MCAO model, tested the effects and advanced improvement for making the rat MCAO. Forty male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats were randomized into two groups, MCAO with traditional uncoated nylon filament (uMCAO) and MCAO with paraffin-coated nylon filament (cMCAO), three rats as normal group and sham group respectively...

UNLABELLED: A variety of intraluminal sutures have been used in the middle cerebral artery occlusion model (MCAO) of focal ischemia. In the present study we tested commercially available silicon-coated nylon suture in the MCAO model and compared the results to traditional monofilament nylon suture occlusion. Twelve Sprague-Dawley male rats were randomly divided two groups, MCAO with 4-0 nylon suture (Group N, n=6) and MCAO with silicone-coated 4-0 nylon suture (Group S, n=6). Rats were sacrificed 24 h after reperfusion...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Several approaches to the treatment of dissecting aneurysms of the vertebrobasilar system have been used. We evaluated our endovascular experience, which includes trapping and proximal occlusion. METHODS: Thirty-five patients with intradural vertebrobasilar dissecting aneurysms presented to our institution between 1992 and 2002. Twenty-six were treated by endovascular means and two with surgery. In the endovascular group, 14 were in a supra-posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) location, and three of these extended to the vertebrobasilar junction on the initial angiogram...

We present the case of a traumatic posterior cerebral artery aneurysm from a self-inflicted pneumatic nail-gun missile injury through the roof of the mouth. The patient presented to us in a coma with subarachanoid and intraventricular hemorrhage. Cerebral angiography revealed an aneurysm of the left posterior cerebral artery with no distal filling. The patient died 6 days after admission. At autopsy, a pseudoaneurysm of the posterior cerebral artery was seen. This aneurysm resulted from direct disruption of the arterial wall by the intracranial nail...
