OBJECTIVE To determine the safety and efficacy of endovascular treatment with the Solitaire device for acute basilar artery occlusion (ABAO) and identify factors affecting clinical outcomes. METHODS We enrolled 36 consecutive ABAO patients (aged 58.6 ± 8.10 years) who underwent mechanical thrombectomy with the Solitaire device. We analyzed baseline(More)
BACKGROUND Communicating occupying lesions of the intratemporal fossa and mid-cranial fossa represent challenges for neurosurgeons and maxillofacial surgeons. Lesions of the skull base, with complex anatomy, are extremely varied in their histopathology. They often spread via normal anatomic pathways or bony destruction to involve adjacent structures,(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Thrombelastography (TEG) is widely used for the measurement of platelet function. However, few studies have investigated the TEG parameters in patients receiving extracranial or intracranial artery stenting for ischemic cerebrovascular disease. This study sought to describe the association of TEG parameters before the procedure with(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE High periprocedural complication rate is a key limitation of endovascular treatment of intracranial atherosclerotic disease (ICAD), despite potential risk reduction of recurrent stroke. Taking lessons from the Stenting and Aggressive Medical Management for Preventing Recurrent Stroke in Intracranial Arterial Stenosis (SAMMPRIS) trial,(More)
OBJECTIVES Symptomatic intracranial vertebrobasilar artery stenosis (IVBS) carries a high annual risk of recurrent stroke. Endovascular therapy was a promising technique but recent trials suggest it may carry a risk of periprocedual complications especially in inexperienced hands. This prospective study was to evaluate the safety of endovascular therapy for(More)
AIM We aimed to evaluate cerebral hemodynamic status of preoperative and postoperative revascularization treatment by oxygen extraction fraction (OEF)-magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with severe cerebrovascular stenosis or occlusive disease. MATERIAL AND METHODS This study enrolled 9 symptomatic patients with severe cerebrovascular disease(More)
PURPOSE Current studies on endovascular intervention for intracranial atherosclerosis select patients based on luminal stenosis. Coronary studies demonstrated that fractional flow measurements assess ischemia better than anatomical stenosis and can guide patient selection for intervention. We similarly postulated that fractional flow can be used to assess(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Perforator stroke is one of the most common complications of elective intracranial angioplasty and/or stenting, particularly in the basilar artery. Factors associated with the risk of post-procedural perforator stroke remain unexplored. We investigated factors affecting the risk of perforator stroke after basilar artery angioplasty(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the safety of low-dose aspirin plus clopidogrel versus high-dose aspirin plus clopidogrel in prevention of vascular risk within 90 days of duration of dual antiplatelet therapy in patients treated with intracranial endovascular treatment. METHODS From January 2012 to December 2013, this prospective and observational study enrolled(More)
