A 45-year-old woman presented with a non-dominant transverse-sigmoid sinus dural arteriovenous fistula (AVF) associated with convexity meningioma on the same side. The dural AVF disappeared spontaneously after surgical removal of the meningioma, even though there was no manipulation of the dural AVF. Dural AVFs are usually acquired lesions, and may develop(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and stability of the wrap-clipping methods as a reconstructive strategy in the treatment of unclippable cerebral aneurysms. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty four patients who had undergone wrap-clipping microsurgery were retrospectively reviewed. Type and morphology of the treated aneurysm, utilized technique for wrap-clip(More)
BACKGROUND Despite accumulated experience and improved understanding of the tools, endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms continues to have risks linked to the technique itself, and induces procedure-related complications. The purpose of this study was to report our series of stent salvage using the Enterprise stent for procedure-related(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare clinical outcomes and treatment-related complications between coiling and clipping for ruptured distal anterior cerebral artery (DACA) aneurysms. METHODS Eighty-four consecutive patients (M:F = 36:48; mean 53.8 years) with ruptured DACA aneurysms were treated by either clipping (n = 46,(More)
Embolisation of a carotid cavernous fistula by means of a detachable balloon is a well-established method for treating carotid cavernous fistulas while preserving a patent internal carotid artery. However, failure to embolise the carotid cavernous fistula may occur. Herein we describe a stent-assisted Guglielmi detachable coil embolisation that completely(More)
The etiology of dural arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is still uncertain, and the occurrence of postoperative dural AVM has rarely been proved angiographically. The authors present a case of dural AVM in the jugular and the sigmoid sinuses, which developed 1 year after resection of a pial AVM via the craniotomy. A possible mechanism underlying this case of(More)
OBJECTIVE The clinico-radiologic features of the spontaneous basal ganglia hemorrhage (BGH) may often differ one from another, according to its regional location. Therefore, we attempted to classify the BGH into regional subgroups, and to extrapolate the distinct characteristics of each group of BGH. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 103 BGHs were analyzed(More)
Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is common among various types of storkes; however, it is rare in young patients and patients who do not have any risk factors. In such cases, ICH is generally caused by vascular malformations, tumors, vasculitis, or drug abuse. Basal ganglia ICH is rarely related with distal lenticulostriate artery (LSA) aneurysm. Since the(More)
to treat with endovascular embolization. Balloon remodeling and stent-assisted coil embolization have been increasingly available therapeutic strategy in the treatment of these complex lesions (1-3). To our knowledge, there are a few papers that wide-necked basilar bifurcation aneurysms were treated with the Y-configured dual stent assisted coil(More)
Ruptured aneurysms of the distal anterior choroidal artery (AchA) are extremely rare and management is dictated by clinical presentation. This report describes a rare patient with a distal AchA aneurysm and subarachnoid and intraventricular haemorrhage. A 60-year-old woman presented with a sudden onset of severe headache and vomiting. No aneurysms could be(More)
