BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Aneurysm embolization using Guglielmi detachable coils (GDC) is gaining increasing acceptance as a viable alternative to surgery in the treatment of cerebral aneurysms. Although recent reports describe a significant rate of symptomatic thromboembolic complications with GDC use, many of the neurologic deficits are transient. We sought(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Acute thromboembolic stroke complicated by ipsilateral carotid occlusion may present both mechanical and inflow-related barriers to effective intracranial thrombolysis. We sought to review our experience with a novel method of mechanical thrombectomy, in such cases, using the Possis AngioJet system, a rheolytic thrombectomy device. (More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine retrospectively the effectiveness of thrombolysis of occluded infrapopliteal bypass grafts and to identify factors affecting success. MATERIALS AND METHODS The records of 52 consecutive patients (52 grafts) who underwent selective urokinase thrombolysis of grafts to the pedal or tibial arteries were(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of iliac angioplasty and outcomes in diabetic patients and nondiabetic patients with limb-threatening ischemia. MATERIALS AND METHODS Records of 91 consecutive patients with limb-threatening ischemia (rest pain, nonhealing ulceration, or gangrene) who, during a 6-year period, underwent(More)
