BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Prompt recanalization of cerebral arteries in patients diagnosed with acute ischemic stroke is known to be associated with a better clinical outcome. The aim of this study was to present our initial experience regarding the efficacy and safety of the Solitaire FR as a revascularization device. METHODS 56 consecutive patients(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Large vessel occlusion in ischemic stroke is associated with a high degree of morbidity. When intravenous thrombolysis fails, mechanical thrombectomy can provide an alternative and synergistic method for flow restoration. In this study we evaluate the safety and efficacy of our stroke management protocol (RECOST study). METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate 1 year results of endovascular treatment (EVT) of intracranial aneurisms using Matrix second generation detachable coils (MSG(®)). PATIENTS AND METHODS Between January and December 2006, 32 patients with 32 intracranial aneurisms were treated by coiling using MSG(®), with a minimum follow-up of 1 year. Data were acquired(More)
PURPOSE The optimal treatment in the acute phase of cervical internal carotid occlusion associated with intracranial obstruction is a matter of debate. In this study, we report our experience using the Solitaire FR revascularization device and synchronous intravenous fibrinolysis. The distal occlusion was treated with Solitaire FR before the proximal one in(More)
