This study examined clinical and aneurysm characteristics in patients with unruptured aneurysms, treated with either coiling or clipping at a single institution, with the primary outcome—Glasgow Outcome Score (GOS)—measured at 6 months after treatment. Data was obtained by a retrospective review of a prospective registry of consecutive cases of unruptured(More)
Saccular intracranial aneurysms are a common and often fatal lesion. Whereas surgical treatment of these aneurysms continues to be the gold standard of care, certain situations arise for which surgery may not be the best option. In some of these cases, electrolytically detachable coils have been proven to provide outcomes superior to those seen for medical(More)
A rare case of straight sinus thrombosis in a 36-year-old female with sudden onset of status migrainosus is presented. This condition was demonstrated by a linear density in the midline on a noncontrast computed tomography scan, as a filling defect at the location of straight sinus on magnetic resonance imaging, and by the inability to visualize blood flow(More)
OBJECT Because of high recanalization rates associated with wide-necked intracranial aneurysms treated with bare platinum coils, hydrogel coils (HydroCoil, MicroVention, Inc.) have been developed. Hydrogel coils undergo progressive expansion once exposed to the physiological environment of blood and increase overall aneurysm filling. METHODS The authors(More)
The authors report the case of an acute left middle cerebral artery distribution stroke caused by a terminal internal carotid artery occlusion in a patient who underwent endovascular mechanical embolectomy. Histopathological analysis of embolic material obtained from the mechanical retriever device was diagnostic of a high-grade phyllodes breast tumor. This(More)
