The steady progess in the armamentarium of techniques available for endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms requires affordable and reproducable experimental animal models to test novel embolization materials such as stents and flow diverters. The aim of the present project was to design a safe, fast, and standardized surgical technique for stent assisted embolization of saccular aneurysms in a rat animal model. Saccular aneurysms were created from an arterial graft from the descending aorta.The aneurysms were microsurgically transplanted through end-to-side anastomosis to the infrarenal abdominal aorta of a syngenic male Wistar rat weighing >500 g...

We present the results of a theoretical and numerical study of the chromatographic performance of a novel type of microfabricated GC column. The column consists of an array of rectangular flow diverters (pillars), creating a network of perfectly ordered, interconnected and tortuous flow-through paths. Using van Deemter and kinetic plots of simulated band broadening data, we could demonstrate that the proposed column structure performs as a bundle of parallel open-tubular capillaries with rectangular cross-section, connected by a regular pattern of channel-intermixing points that allow compensating for inevitable channel-to-channel differences in migration velocity without adding any significant dispersion themselves...

Internal carotid artery (ICA) pseudoaneurysm is a rare complication of endoscopic endonasal surgery occurring in 0.4-1.1% of cases. Pseudoaneurysms can subsequently result in other complications, such as subarachnoid hemorrhage, epistaxis, and caroticocavernous fistula with resultant death or permanent neurologic deficit. In this case, we illustrate endovascular treatment with a flow-diverting stent for an ICA pseudoaneurysm after endoscopic endonasal surgery for a pituitary adenoma in a 56-year-old male. Surgery was complicated by excessive intraoperative bleeding and emergent CT angiography confirmed an iatrogenic pseudoaneurysm on the anteromedial surface of the ICA...

The groundwater irrigation expansion, and its multiple potential impacts on the quantity and quality of water resources, is not just restricted to areas that are water limited. In this study we present the seasonal impacts irrigation practices can have on groundwater resources in a temperate humid region, where the average annual rain/PET ratio is 1.0. In this system the irrigation expansion is solely supported by groundwater pumping, but despite this only 5 boreholes are monitored for hydraulic head data. In this study, we compensate the scarce hydrophysical dataset by incorporating environmental tracers (major ions, δ(18)O, δ(2)H and δ(13)C) and dating tracers ((3)H, CFC, SF6 and (14)C)...

INTRODUCTION: Non-saccular aneurysms of the posterior circulation are uncommon but highly dangerous lesions. Flow diverter stents have been demonstrated to be effective treatments of various anterior circulation aneurysms, particularly large and giant proximal internal carotid artery aneurysms. However, evidence regarding the treatment of non-saccular posterior circulation aneurysms with flow diverters is lacking. METHODS: A systematic literature review of the English language literature since 2007 was conducted using PubMed, MEDLINE, and Embase...

BACKGROUND: Dissecting aneurysms of the intracranial vertebral arteries are rare; however, treatment of these presents multiple challenges, including high risk of rebleeding, development of thromboembolic strokes, and progressive partial thrombosis. Flow diverters, such as Pipeline Endovascular Devices (PEDs; Covidien, Medtronic Inc, Dublin, Ireland), have emerged as a potential treatment option. OBJECTIVE: To present our experience with patients treated at our institution with PEDs for dissecting distal vertebral artery (V4 segment) aneurysms...

BACKGROUND: Intracavernous aneurysms constitute up to 9% of all intracranial aneurysms and 6% are infectious (IIA). First line therapy is a protracted antibiotic course, yet with failure, surgery and endovascular parent vessel sacrifice have been utilized. Reconstructive endovascular therapies have emerged for aneurysm control and may demonstrate a safer therapeutic alternative. OBJECTIVE: To present an IIA treated with a flow-diverting Pipeline stent (ev3 Neurovascular, Irvine, California)...

PURPOSE: Conventional coil embolization for large carotid cavernous aneurysms (CCAs) has limited utility due to its inability to prevent recurrences and reduce mass effect. Trapping of the parent artery may have a risk of ischemic complications due to intracranial perfusion disorders. We successfully treated 24 patients with large CCAs using a flow diverter (Pipeline™ embolic device: PED), and this report discusses the safety and efficacy of this method. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty four patients (23 females, mean age 71...

The purpose was to examine the results of bilateral percutaneous sclerotherapy of the internal spermatic veins on prostate volume and prostatic symptoms. We previously showed that destruction of one-way valves in the internal spermatic veins (varicocele) elevates hydrostatic pressure in the vertical testicular venous drainage system in the erect human. This diverts free testosterone (FT) flow at high concentrations directly from the testes into the prostate. High intraprostatic FT prolongs prostate cell life and increases cell proliferation rate-synergistic effects resulting in increased cell population (BPH)...

Paediatric aneurysms are rare and represent the end result of a variety of different pathological mechanisms. They have a varied presentation and features that are distinct from their adult counterparts. The appropriate management of these aneurysms requires a multi-disciplinary team approach and detailed analysis to deal with the underlying pathology. This can involve the use of coils, adjunctive devices such as neck-bridging devices, flow diverters and liquid embolic agents, as well as microsurgical clipping...

PURPOSE: Flow diverters are increasingly used in the treatment of complex and giant intracranial aneurysms. However, they are associated with complications like late aneurysmal rupture. Additionally, flow diverters show focal structural decrease in luminal diameter without any intimal hyperplasia. This resembles a "fish mouth" when viewed en face. In this pilot study, we tested the hypothesis of a possible association between flow diverter fish-mouthing and delayed-type hypersensitivity to its metal constituents...
