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)
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)
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 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)
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 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)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Although new, large, double-blind, randomized studies are needed to establish the efficiency of intravenous thrombolysis, open trials of sufficient size may also provide novel data concerning specific outcomes after thrombolysis. METHODS An open study of intravenous rtPA in 100 patients with internal carotid artery (ICA) territory(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Endovascular treatment of wide-neck anterior communicating artery aneurysms can often be challenging. The Woven EndoBridge (WEB) device is a recently developed intrasaccular flow disrupter dedicated to endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms. The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Complete intracranial aneurysmal occlusion by endovascular techniques is required for successful treatment and is presumably influenced by several parameters. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether operator experience and angiographic characteristics of intracranial aneurysms correspond to the degree of endovascular(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)
