BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The previous decade has witnessed increasing application of Guglielmi detachable coils (GDCs) for the treatment of intracranial aneurysms. However, the midterm angiographic and clinical outcomes are not well documented. We report here the angiographic and clinical outcomes of patients treated with GDCs over an 8-year period. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE By undertaking long-term follow-up of a functionally isolated population study group, we sought to achieve a true picture of intrinsic brain arteriovenous malformation (BAVM). We sought to assess the validity of earlier population-based series and to determine the effects of newer treatment methods on the overall morbidity and(More)
The clinical features, imaging and angiographic findings of thirty four patients with cranial dural arteriovenous malformations and fistulae are presented in four groups. Group 1--Seven patients with anterior cavernous malformations, predominant superior ophthalmic vein drainage, and symptoms and signs of carotico-cavernous fistula. Group 2--Twelve patients(More)
Giant and fusiform aneurysms of the basilar artery (BA) are difficult to manage surgically, and they still present a challenge for the neurosurgeon despite progress in posterior fossa surgery. Guglielmi detachable coils have provided an alternative approach to treatment, but they have their own difficulties. We present a series of three patients with BA(More)
Headache and the radiological finding of an abnormal pituitary fossa are a frequent mode of presentation in patients with pituitary tumours. The case histories and radiological findings of 4 patients who presented with the above features, and in whom the major abnormalities of the pituitary fossa were due mainly to variations in the cavernous portions of(More)
The objective of this study was to analyse the technical and clinical outcome in elderly patients receiving endovascular treatment for acutely ruptured intracranial aneurysms. The case notes and angiograms of 14 patients over the age of 69 years undergoing endovascular treatment for subarachnoid haemorrhage within the Interventional Neuroradiology Unit,(More)
Detailed analysis of complications in 363 patients undergoing myelography with metrizamide is presented. Patients have been separated into three groups: those who had lumbar myelograms via lumbar puncture; patients who had cervical myelograms via lumbar route and patients who had cervical myelograms via cervical puncture (lateral C1/C2. approach). Analysis(More)
RADIOLOGICAL examination of breast tumours is of proven diagnostic value. It may also be of prognostic value through the examination of tumour outline (Ingleby and Gershon-Cohen, 1960). On macroscopic examination Lane et al. (1961) showed that patients with breast carcinomas which have a smooth edge have a better 10-year survival rate than those in which(More)
Benign headaches related to sexual activity and exertion are being recognised with increasing frequency. We wish to report a case of benign sexual headache (Type 2) and benign exertional headache, occurring sequentially in the same patient. Multiple areas of cerebral arterial spasm were demonstrable on angiography. This observation would support the concept(More)
