BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The long-term durability of Guglielmi detachable coil (GDC) embolization of cerebral aneurysms is still unknown. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the stability of anatomic occlusion of aneurysms treated with GDCs and assess the rate of recanalization and re-treatment. METHODS A multicenter study involving 650 patients with(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The management of wide-necked aneurysms or aneurysms with a neck-to-body ratio close to 1 is a difficult challenge for the interventional radiologist because of the risk of coil migration or coil protrusion into the parent vessel. Our objective was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of balloon-assisted coiling as well as the(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE FD stent placement is a promising therapy for challenging intracranial aneurysms. Long-term evaluations about angiographic and morphologic results are still missing. This is the aim of this multicenter series. MATERIALS AND METHODS We report our experience and 1-year FU in a retrospective chart review of 65 consecutive subjects with(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The purpose of our study was to evaluate the technical feasibility, morbidity and mortality, and durability of occlusion of unruptured aneurysms treated with Guglielmi detachable coils (GDCs) with a long-term follow-up. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between January 1998 and January 2005, we treated 321 unruptured aneurysms with GDCs in 5(More)
In this article, we briefly review the concept of brain mapping in stereotactic surgery taking into account recent advances in stereotactic imaging. The gold standard continues to rely on probabilistic and indirect targeting, relative to a stereotactic reference, i.e., mostly the anterior (AC) and the posterior (PC) commissures. The theoretical position of(More)
We review seven patients with intracranial dural arteriovenous fistulae (ICDAVF), each altering the initial type of venous drainage to one with a higher grading during long-term follow-up. Five were discovered due to symptoms of intracranial hypertension, two due to changes in tinnitus and one case following subarachnoid haemorrhage. In five cases, cortical(More)
BACKGROUND Typical presentation of spontaneous internal carotid artery (ICA) dissection is an ipsilateral pain in neck and face with Horner's syndrome and contralateral deficits. Although rare, lower cranial nerve palsy have been reported in association with an ipsilateral spontaneous ICA dissection. CASE STUDIES We report three new cases of ICA(More)
Subthalamic nucleus (STN) targeting is classically performed based on AC-PC probabilistic position. Nevertheless, MRI allows direct visualization and targeting. We aimed to compare the position localized on MR images with standard stereotactic diagrams. The STN was manually contoured on MR images (22 Parkinson's disease patients); boundaries were simplified(More)
The subthalamic nucleus (STN) is the main target for deep brain stimulation in Parkinson's disease. We analysed the relationships between magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) anatomy and spontaneous neuronal activity to confirm the potential of microelectrode recordings to assist in determining the optimal surgical target. Ten bilateral surgeries were performed(More)
BACKGROUND Since the pioneering studies of human thalamic anatomy based on histology and binding techniques, little new work has been done to bring this knowledge into clinical practice. OBJECTIVE With the advent of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) we hypothesized that it was possible, in vitro, to make use of high spontaneous MRI contrasts between white(More)
