OBJECTIVE Recovery of aneurysm-induced oculomotor nerve paresis (ONP) after endosaccular coiling has not yet been adequately assessed. The aim of this study was to investigate the factors that affect the outcome of ONP after endovascular treatment of posterior communicating artery (PcomA) aneurysms. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively evaluated the(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The incidence of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage is increasing in the elderly as life expectancy increases. The purpose of this study was to analyze whether ultra-early coiling of ruptured intracranial aneurysms improves clinical outcomes in elderly patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Records of patients (aged ≥ 70 years) with(More)
Stent-assisted coil embolization is an endovascular treatment for wide-necked intracranial aneurysms, but the durability of this treatment is not well known. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of the Neuroform stent (Boston Scientific/Target, Fremont, CA, USA) in progressive occlusion of wide-necked intracranial aneurysms, and to assess any(More)
PURPOSE The recovery time of traumatic carotid-cavernous fistula-induced oculomotor nerve paresis (ONP) after endovascular embolization with detachable balloons has not yet been adequately evaluated. This study was performed to make a deep analysis of the factors, which affect the prognosis of ONP after endovascular treatment of traumatic carotid-cavernous(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of transorbital puncture for the retreatment of previously embolized cavernous sinus dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) via a superior ophthalmic vein (SOV) approach. MATERIALS AND METHODS During a 12-year period, 9 consecutive patients with previously embolized cavernous sinus(More)
