SUMMARY Endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms by coiling has become an accepted alternative to surgical clipping (1). In cases of wide-necked and sidewall aneurysms, selective embolization is difficult because of the risk of coil protrusion into the parent vessel. The use of three-dimensional coils, stents (2), and balloon remodeling have all(More)
SUMMARY Carotid blowout is a devastating complication in patients with head and neck cancer, commonly encountered as a delayed complication of radiation therapy. The clinical outcomes in patients with carotid blowout are discouraging; even transarterial embolization has been performed to control the acute massive bleeding. In recent years, covered stents(More)
SUMMARY Treatment of direct carotid cavernous fistulas (CCF) has progressed from surgical ligation to surgical trapping to endovascular techniques. Endovascular therapies are advantageous as they allow for occlusion of the fistula whilst preserving flow in the parent carotid artery. However, technical difficulties are not uncommon and occur when the(More)
The dichloromethane extract of the aerial parts of Artabotrys hexapetalus afforded three beta-methoxy-gamma-methylene-alpha,beta-unsaturated-gamma-butyrolactones, which are proposed to be derived from a C(18) unsaturated fatty acid by a biosynthetic route similar to that proposed for the Annonaceous acetogenins. The structure of the unique(More)
The CH(2)Cl(2) extract of the aerial parts of Artemisia myriantha afforded three germacranolides derived from 13-acetoxy-3beta-hydroxy-germacra-1(10)E,4E,7(11)-trien-12,6alpha-olide, whose structures were elucidated by 2D-NMR spectroscopic analyses. Some conclusions are drawn about the possible conformations of the ten-membered germacranolide ring system(More)
SUMMARY Here, we present a 32-year-old male with proptosis and chemosis of the left eye following a close head injury. Digital subtraction angiography of the left internal carotid artery showed a left carotid-cavernous fistula (CCF) associated with a primitive trigeminal artery (PTA) variant. The patient was successfully treated with transvenous Guglielmi(More)
SUMMARY Endovascular embolization for craniofacial arteriovenous malformation has been used as preoperative adjuvant devascularization or as definitive therapy. However, because the vascular network is complex, embolization via arterial access may be ineffective, risky, incomplete or technically difficult. The purpose of this report is to describe our(More)
Ependymoblastoma is a rare and highly malignant brain tumor considered to be a subtype of primitive neuroectodermal tumors. We presented a case of ependymoblastoma in a 14-year-old girl. CT and MRI showed a large, supratentorial, paraventricular tumor with cystic and irregularly enhancing solid components. Foci of intratumoral hemorrhage and absence of(More)
