Ruptured blister-like aneurysms arising at non-branching sites of the internal carotid artery (BLICAA’s) sometimes cause disaster during aneurysm repair because of their characteristic configurations. Our study was designed to establish the best surgical strategies for such aneurysms. Eighteen BLICAA’s (0.9% of all treated aneurysms) treated at our(More)
Cavernous malformations (CMs) are vascular malformations affecting any part of the central nervous system. CMs in the pediatric age group are known to be different from those of adults both in origin and clinical characteristics. In this paper, we report our experience in managing CMs in pediatric patients. Between January 1994 and December 2006, 33(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated the impact of reference vessel segment plaque burden on lesion remodeling. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) assessment of lesion remodeling compares lesions to reference segments. However, reference segments are rarely disease-free and, therefore, have also undergone remodeling changes. METHODS Pre-intervention IVUS was obtained in(More)
The pipeline™ embolization device (PED) is a braided, tubular, bimetallic endoluminal implant used for occlusion of intracranial aneurysms through flow disruption along the aneurysm neck. The authors report on two cases of giant internal carotid artery aneurysm treated with the PED. In the first case, an aneurysm measuring 26.4 mm was observed at the C3-C4(More)
The effects of beta-radiation therapy on nonstented adjacent segments in in-stent restenosis have not been sufficiently evaluated. beta-radiation therapy for in-stent restenosis was performed with a (188)Re-MAG(3)-filled balloon. We evaluated the effects of beta-radiation therapy on nonstented adjacent segments in in-stent restenosis by intravascular(More)
