Superselective angiography is the most accurate technique in the analysis of brain arteriovenous malformation (AVM) angioarchitecture. Therefore, we reviewed the selective and superselective angiograms of 100 consecutive patients with intracerebral AVMs. Our purpose was to determine which parameters of angioarchitecture were significantly correlated with a(More)
BACKGROUND High recovery rates after endovascular treatment of TNP-inducing PcomA aneurysms have been reported. However, only few and often small series were reported. The results of the 2 available comparative studies are controversial. Choosing clipping or coiling as treatment modality nowadays is still a matter of debate. We report the ophthalmologic(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Flow disruption with the WEB device is a new technique for the endovascular treatment of wide-neck bifurcation aneurysms. To obtain precise data regarding the safety and efficacy of this treatment with high-quality methodology, the prospective French Observatory study was conducted. Analysis of these data is presented, including(More)
A case of subdural arachnoid cyst of the thoracic spine was studied by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), myelography and CT myelography. Myelography and especially CT myelography suggested the diagnosis; MRI established it, showing the communication between the cyst and the subarachnoid space. Final characterization was based on surgical findings and(More)
The authors describe the outcomes in 11 patients who had acute ischemic stroke related to internal carotid artery (ICA) dissection and were treated with IV tissue plasminogen activator (tPA). One symptomatic intracerebral hemorrhage occurred 36 hours after tPA was given. The mean day 90 modified Rankin Scale (m-RS) score was 2.4 (+/-1.6). No death was(More)
A phase II study was conducted in order to determine the feasibility and toxicity of cisplatin combined with the nitrosourea fotemustine in central nervous system metastases from non-small cell lung cancer. 31 chemotherapy-naïve patients were included between November 1990 and April 1993. Computed tomography scan-documented tumour regression in brain(More)
Brain-stem, middle latency and late auditory evoked potentials (BAEPs, MLAEPs and LAEPs, respectively) were recorded in a patient 2 months after removal of affecting the quadrigeminal plate. Simultaneously, MRI showed a left unilateral lesion involving the inferior colliculus, brachium colliculi and the medial geniculate body (MGB). On dichotic listening,(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Endovascular treatment of bifurcation middle cerebral artery aneurysms with a wide neck could be challenging, and many lesions are still treated by a surgical approach. The pCONus is a newly emerging device for wide-neck bifurcation intracranial aneurysms. To date, a single report on the treatment of intracranial aneurysms including(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The safety and efficacy of WEB flow disruption have been analyzed in small, retrospective series. The object of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of WEB flow disruption in a large, multicenter, prospectively collected population. MATERIALS AND METHODS Data from all patients treated with the WEB-DL device between(More)
A series of 12 patients with tectal plate gliomas, is presented treated by direct surgery. Mean age was 19 years. All patients presented with signs of raised intracranial pressure and supratentorial hydrocephalus on CT scan. Diplopia was the most common local sign. CT scan and MR imaging showed 4 intrinsic, 6 exophytic, and 2 ventrally infiltrating tectal(More)
