OBJECT The difference in the hemodynamics of wall shear stress (WSS) and oscillatory shear index (OSI) between ruptured and unruptured aneurysms is not well understood. The authors investigated the hemodynamic similarities and dissimilarities in ruptured and thin-walled unruptured aneurysm blebs. METHODS Magnetic resonance imaging-based fluid dynamics(More)
A 48-year-old woman suffered head trauma and presented with an acute epidural hematoma with a linear fracture of the right temporal bone across the middle meningeal groove. Initial angiography demonstrated no vascular abnormalities. Eight months later, she again suffered head trauma and computed tomography demonstrated traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage.(More)
A 55-year-old man presented with a rare case of multiple isolated sinus dural arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) associated with antithrombin (AT) III deficiency manifesting as sudden onset of headache and gait disturbance. Increased arterial shunting flow had caused intraventricular hemorrhage after incomplete repeated transarterial embolization procedures for(More)
BACKGROUND There are no established treatment procedures for repeatedly recurring chronic subdural hematoma (CSH). In this study, we discussed the efficacy of middle meningeal artery (MMA) embolization in preventing recurrence of CSH. METHODS We performed superselective angiography of MMA in four patients who suffered from repeated recurrence of CSH.(More)
We report the case of a 50 year old female who presented with visual disturbance due to optochiasmal arachnoiditis and foreign body granuloma 9 months after cotton wrapping for ruptured anterior communicating artery (AcomA) aneurysm. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed enhanced mass lesion around AcomA complex and hyperintense signal on optic chiasm(More)
This 70-year-old female was admitted to our hospital 1 day after a sudden consciousness disturbance. Computed tomography (CT) showed subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), and angiogram revealed an irregular-shaped aneurysm at the lateral medullary segment of the left posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA). The patient was treated by intra-aneurysmal(More)
OBJECTIVE We examined the effect of intraarterial administration of fasudil hydrochloride (IAFC), a Rho kinase inhibitor, for the prevention of symptomatic vasospasm after SAH by evaluating cerebral circulation. METHODS We evaluated IAFC cases of 57 sides of 38 patients (12 men and 26 women, average age 60.2 years old) diagnosed with aneurysmal(More)
We report a rare case of a meningioma causing acute hematoma. A 67-year-old woman presented with sudden headache. No evidence of trauma was seen. CT demonstrated a subdural hematoma in the convexity of the fronto-temporal lobe. Magnetic resonance imaging showed marked signal heterogeneity in the convexity of the frontal lobe. One week later, the patient(More)
