PURPOSE Carotid artery stent placement has been accepted as an effective alternative to carotid endarterectomy (CEA), especially in patients at high risk in the setting of CEA. The purpose of this study was to determine potential clinical risk factors for the development of postprocedural neurologic deficits after carotid artery stent placement. MATERIALS(More)
Chondromas arising from the dura mater are rare intracranial tumors. We describe a case of intracranial chondroma originating from the durra mater of the convexity, mimicking a meningioma. The neuroradiological and surgical findings are described. The diagnostic clues for the differential diagnosis between chondromas and meningiomas are discussed and(More)
Bow hunter's stroke results from vertebrobasilar insufficiency due to a mechanical occlusion or stenosis of the vertebral artery caused by head rotation. We report here a case of bow hunter's stroke that was successfully treated with endovascular surgery. A 69-year-old male complained of intractable vertigo when he rotated his head to the right side.(More)
A 57-year-old male presented with right amaurosis fugax and left transient ischemic attack caused by stenosis of the intracranial segment of the right internal carotid artery (ICA). Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty with stenting was successfully performed to dilate the stenosis. However, serial angiography revealed the development of a large(More)
 Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty with stenting for high-grade carotid stenosis has been recently come into use. However, distal embolic events remain a problem with this procedure compared to results with established carotid endarterectomy. To counteract such problems, various blocking balloon system such as a simple distal blocking balloon system or(More)
BACKGROUND Preoperative endovascular embolization of intracranial meningiomas denatures the tumor tissue, reduces intraoperative blood loss, and facilitates surgical removal. However, as most meningiomas are surgically removed within a few days after embolization, the effect of long-term volume reduction of the tumor due to the endovascular embolization(More)
We report here a case of giant internal carotid artery (ICA) pseudoaneurysm as a complication of transsphenoidal surgery. This 50-year-old acromegalic male presented to our clinic with a status of hypovolemic shock due to serious epistaxis. Neuroradiological examinations at his admission revealed a giant aneurysm in the right cavernous portion projecting(More)
BACKGROUND Cabergoline (CAB) has been proposed as the first-line treatment in the management of prolactin (PRL)-secreting tumors (prolactinoma [PRLoma]), including those resistant to standard dopamine agonist (DAA) therapy. The authors report remarkable effects of CAB in a case of huge PRLoma that had been resistant to a long-term, high-dose treatment with(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to clarify the clinical predictors of delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). METHODS 102 patients with ruptured cerebral aneurysms were treated (77 by clipping and 25 by coiling). 40 patients were male and 62 were female. Median age was 59 years (range 31-88). The modified Rankin Scale(More)
