BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Giant/large peripheral cerebral aneurysms beyond the circle of Willis and middle cerebral artery (MCA) bifurcation are rare lesions, their etiopathogenesis is not completely elucidated, and their treatment is often difficult. We reviewed the etiopathologic findings available in the literature and report the results and long-term(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether the blood flow abnormalities frequently associated with arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) can alter functional magnetic resonance (MR) imaging evaluation of language lateralization and whether reorganization of language function occurs in patients with brain AVMs. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eleven patients with left-hemisphere(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Endovascular coiling is a well-established therapy for treating intracranial aneurysms. Nonetheless, postoperative hemodynamic changes induced by this therapy remain not fully understood. The purpose of this work is to assess the influence of coil configuration and packing density on intra-aneurysmal hemodynamics. MATERIALS AND(More)
Dural arteriovenous fistulas (dAVFs) can cause cerebral venous hypertension (VHT). The most common mechanism is due to the fact that some dAVFs can drain retrogradelly in cortical (better defined as leptomeningeal) veins (directly or after drainage in a dural sinus) causing venous engorgement and consequently an impairment of the cerebral venous drainage.(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE According to the International Study of Unruptured Intracranial Aneurysms (ISUIA), anterior circulation (AC) aneurysms of <7 mm in diameter have a minimal risk of rupture. It is general experience, however, that anterior communicating artery (AcoA) aneurysms are frequent and mostly rupture at <7 mm. The aim of the study was to assess(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The most frequent and serious complications of endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms with Guglielmi detachable coils (GDCs) are ischemic lesions caused by thromboembolic events. Diffusion-weighted MR imaging appears to be the most sensitive technique for detecting early ischemic phenomena. We evaluated this technique for(More)
PURPOSE In this article, the authors studied the feasibility of estimating regional mechanical properties in cerebral aneurysms, integrating information extracted from imaging and physiological data with generic computational models of the arterial wall behavior. METHODS A data assimilation framework was developed to incorporate patient-specific(More)
INTRODUCTION Direct carotid artery puncture (DCP) is employed in patients with tortuous anatomy and peripheral vascular disease when the peripheral arteries are not available for vascular access. Manual compression is the only method of achieving hemostasis following DCP and, till date, the use of a closure device for DCP has been reported in only one(More)
RADStation3G is a software platform for cardiovascular image analysis and surgery planning. It provides image visualization and management in 2D, 3D and 3D+t; data storage (images or operational results) in a PACS (using DICOM); and exploitation of patients' data such as images and pathologies. Further, it provides support for computationally expensive(More)
