BACKGROUND: Guidelines for aneurysm subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) management recommend treatment with nimodipine to all patients to reduce delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) and poor clinical outcome. However, it did not give the most beneficial time to start therapy and route of administration. OBJECTIVES: To compare the DCI occurrence and clinical outcome among aSAH patients who received nimodipine treatment at different times. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted by collecting data from medical chart reviews between August 30, 2010, and October 31, 2015, at Prasart Neurological Institute, Thailand...

Endovascular approach represents today the first option in treatment of ruptured and unruptured cerebral aneurysms. Nevertheless, wide-neck bifurcation aneurysms still represent a technical challenge for endovascular treatment due to the need to protect vessels arising next to the aneurysmal neck. A variety of devices have been implemented to ensure adequate assistance for coiling of these lesions. Among these devices, the new pCONus 2 represents an evolution of the well-known pCONus; compared to the previous one in fact, it allows a degree of articulation and flexibility between the shaft and the distal part (crown), making it more suitable for treatment of aneurysms presenting an angle between the longitudinal axis of the dome and parent vessel...

Introduction: Hybrid aortic arch repair for the treatment of aorto-bronchial fistulas has been suggested as a safe alternative to open repair. However, surgical morbidity and mortality are still significant and re-intervention is sometimes inevitable. Report: Successful rescue by a hybrid approach is reported in a 76 year old woman who was transferred from another centre with recurrent episodes of left hemiplegia shortly after debranching of the supra-aortic vessels and thoracic aortic stent grafting for an aorto-bronchial fistula associated with a true aneurysm at the level of origin of the left subclavian artery...

Background: Embolization for cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) has evolved in the last decade with evolution in both equipment and material. Embolization targets have expanded to include angiographic cure. Methods: To discuss the technical and management outcomes of our first cerebral AVM case series treated with embolization. The clinical, angiographic, treatment, and outcome variables of consecutive cerebral arteriovenous malformation cases, treated with curative embolization, between January 2011 and June 2017 in one regional center, were retrospectively analyzed...

OBJECTIVE: To seek a cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) threshold that can reduce the occurrence of delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH). METHODS: We analyzed the clinical data of patients with the diagnosis of aSAH and underwent CPP monitoring in our department from February 2014 to December 2015. CPP was divided into four specified thresholds by every 10 mmHg increments, which were from 50 mmHg to 80 mmHg. The totally time ratio of CPP below each threshold was calculated...

BACKGROUND: Duane syndrome is a congenital eye movement disorder characterized by congenital malformation of the abducens nucleus. Thrombogenic conditions during development may lead to vascular anomalies in Duane syndrome, however, the presence of a giant aneurysm in this patient population is a rarely documented phenomenon.

OBJECTIVE Blood vessel tortuosity may play an important role in the development of vessel abnormalities such as aneurysms. Currently, however, there are no studies analyzing the impact of brain blood vessel tortuosity on the risk of aneurysm formation. Therefore, the authors performed a computer-aided analysis of middle cerebral artery (MCA) tortuosity, especially among patients diagnosed with MCA aneurysms. METHODS Anatomy of the MCAs of 54 patients with unruptured MCA aneurysms was retrospectively analyzed, as was that of 54 sex-, age-, and vessel side-matched control patients without MCA aneurysms...

Background: Onyx® is a liquid embolic agent, which is approved for the treatment of cerebral vascular lesions but still rarely used in peripheral interventional radiology. The goal of this study is to report the feasibility and safety of embolization with Onyx® for peripheral hemostatic and non-hemostatic endovascular procedures. Methods: Retrospective study of all consecutive patients who underwent visceral or peripheral embolization with Onyx® for hemostatic or non-hemostatic purpose in our department between May 2014 and November 2016...

Airton Leonardo de Oliveira Manoel, R Loch Macdonald
Aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a sub-type of hemorrhagic stroke associated with the highest rates of mortality and long-term neurological disabilities. Despite the improvement in the management of SAH patients and the reduction in case fatality in the last decades, disability and mortality remain high in this population. Brain injury can occur immediately and in the first days after SAH. This early brain injury can be due to physical effects on the brain such as increased intracranial pressure, herniations, intracerebral, intraventricular hemorrhage, and hydrocephalus...

Purpose The intrasaccular flow disruptor Woven EndoBridge (WEB) device is developed for the treatment of wide-necked aneurysms without supportive devices. We used the WEB as primary treatment for unruptured aneurysms suitable for the device, regardless of neck size. Methods Between February 2015 and June 2017, 59 aneurysms in 51 patients were selectively treated with the WEB. There were 15 men and 36 women with a mean age of 59 years. Mean aneurysm size was 7.0 mm (range 3-22 mm). Of 59 aneurysms, 45 (76%) had a wide neck defined as ≥4 mm or dome-neck ratio ≤1...

Introduction The artery of Percheron is a rare anatomic variant supplying bilateral medial thalamic nuclei and a variable portion of the rostral part of midbrain. Case report A 48-year-old female with massive subarachnoid hemorrhage due to a ruptured aneurysm of the paramedian artery of Percheron presented to the emergency room. Because of significant risk of recurrent intracranial hemorrhage, it was decided to proceed with endovascular embolization of the aneurysm. The patient was ultimately sent to a rehabilitation center and her presenting neurologic deficits showed significant improvements in the weeks following endovascular embolization treatment...

BACKGROUND: Saccular intracranial aneurysm (sIA) growth during follow-up is associated with high risk for subsequent rupture. Finnish patients have been suggested to have higher risk for subarachnoid hemorrhage, but follow-up studies of sIA growth in the Finnish population are scarce. OBJECTIVE: To identify the strongest risk factors for sIA growth in Eastern Finnish population by studying 205 patients with 350 unruptured sIAs with angiographic follow-up imaging...

Background: Experience with respect to parent vessel sacrifice (PVS) for unclippable/uncoilable ruptured aneurysms is limited. Objective: The aim of the present systematic review was to evaluate the risk of PVS for unclippable/uncoilable ruptured aneurysms. Materials and Methods: The PUBMED and SCIENCEDIRECT databases were searched using "parent vessel occlusion OR parent artery occlusion" AND "acute subarachnoid hemorrhage" till December 27, 2015, and 1 journal was searched from November 1995 to April 2016 for relevant results...

Background and Purpose: Complex wide-neck intracranial aneurysms are challenging to treat. We report a multicenter experience using the LVIS Jr stent for "Y-stent"-assisted coiling embolization of wide-neck bifurcation aneurysms. Methods: Seven centers provided retrospective data on patients who underwent Y-stenting. Technical complications, immediate posttreatment angiographic results, clinical outcomes, and imaging follow-up were assessed. Results: Thirty patients/aneurysms were treated: 15 basilar tip, 8 middle cerebral artery, 4 anterior communicating artery, 1 pericallosal, and 2 posterior inferior cerebellar artery aneurysms...

Background: Flow diversion with the Pipeline embolization device (PED) is an effective neuro-endovascular method and increasingly accepted for the treatment of cerebral aneurysms. Acute in situ thrombosis is a known complication of PED procedures. There is limited experience in the flow diversion literature on the use of abciximab (ReoPro) for the management of acute thrombus formation in PED cases. Methods: Data were collected retrospectively on patients who received intra-arterial (IA) ReoPro with or without subsequent intravenous (IV) infusion during PED flow diversion treatment of intracranial aneurysms...
