BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We sought to explore the safety and efficacy of the new TREVO stent-like retriever in consecutive patients with acute stroke. METHODS We conducted a prospective, single-center study of 60 patients (mean age, 71.3 years; male 47%) with stroke lasting <8 hours in the anterior circulation (n=54) or <12 hours in the vertebrobasilar(More)
Arthroscopic meniscectomy of the knee is generally a safe and effective procedure with a low rate of vascular complications. We report here on a unique case of a 55-year-old man with a lateral inferior genicular artery pseudoaneurysm and a concomitant arteriovenous fistula that developed after arthroscopic meniscectomy; this was successfully treated with(More)
The purpose of this study is to describe the computed tomography (CT) findings in pulmonary fat embolism syndrome (FES). The chest radiographs and CT scans of 5 patients with the diagnosis of FES as determined by the presence of at least 1 major and 4 minor criteria were reviewed. The radiologic features included ground-glass opacities, with different(More)
Central bronchi and pulmonary arteries are surrounded and enveloped by a strong connective-tissue sheath termed the peribronchovascular interstitium, extending from the level of the pulmonary hila into the peripheral lung. Thickening of the peribronchovascular interstitium can be seen in a wide variety of diseases. The CT appearance can be smooth, nodular,(More)
Although few patients with spontaneous intracranial hypotension develop cerebral venous thrombosis, the association between these two entities seems too common to be simply a coincidental finding. We describe two cases of spontaneous intracranial hypotension associated with cerebral venous thrombosis. In one case, extensive cerebral venous thrombosis(More)
Ischemic cerebral infarcts represent a serious health problem with important social and economic repercussions in the western world. The presence of carotid stenosis is one of the main risk factors for the appearance of cerebral infarcts. Carotid stenosis represents a challenge for the medical community, both because of the enormous amount of scientific(More)
