BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The best approach between general anesthesia and conscious sedation to perform mechanical thrombectomy remains unknown. The goal of our study was to evaluate the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of mechanical thrombectomy under conscious sedation in patients with acute ischemic stroke, using the Solitaire FR device, in a prospective,(More)
INTRODUCTION The study attempts to identify notable factors predicting poor outcome, death, and intracranial hemorrhage in patients with acute ischemic stroke undergoing mechanical thrombectomy with stent retriever. These data could be useful to improve the selection of patients for thrombectomy. METHODS Patients with acute ischemic stroke treated with(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE In acute ischemic stroke patients, internal carotid artery/middle cerebral artery (ICA/MCA) occlusion in tandem predicts a poor outcome after systemic thrombolysis. This study aimed to compare outcomes after mechanical thrombectomy for tandem and single occlusions of the anterior circulation. MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the rare association of trigeminal neuralgia (TGN) with a brain arteriovenous malformation (bAVM) of the posterior fossa. PATIENTS AND METHODS This is a report of three patients presenting with TGN due to vascular compression by a bAVM of the posterior fossa, with emphasis on clinical presentation, diagnostic imaging, management and(More)
Flow diverters (FDs) are increasingly used for complex intracranial aneurysms. As these self-expanding devices are deployed across an aneurysm neck, they can undergo deformations. The potential clinical consequences of FD deformations remain unclear. We describe an immediate thrombotic complication attributed to a stereotypical stenotic deformation of an FD(More)
INTRODUCTION Despite the increased radiation dose, multimodal CT including noncontrast CT (NCT), CT angiography (CTA), and perfusion CT (PCT) remains a useful tool for the diagnosis of delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH). The aim of this study was to assess the radiation dose and the image quality between a(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Our study aimed to evaluate the efficiency and morbidity of Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKS) in the treatment of hemorrhagic brainstem cavernous malformations (CMs). METHODS We included in this study all patients who underwent GKS for the treatment of a hemorrhagic brainstem CM(s) in our institution between January 2007 and December 2012.(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Patients treated with coiling are often followed by MR angiography. Our objective was to assess the inter- and intraobserver agreement in diagnosing aneurysm remnants and recurrences by using multimodality imaging, including TOF MRA. MATERIALS AND METHODS A portfolio composed of 120 selected images from 56 patients was sent to 15(More)
We describe a 26 year-old woman with cervical plexopathy with damage of left superficial or cutaneous branches, and left cervical sensory dorsal rami. Picture began acutely and vanished few days later. We ruled out known etiologies like traumatisms, tumours and surgical and anaesthetic complicated procedures, therefore the patient suffered an idiopathic(More)
BACKGROUND Vascular lesions of the spinal cord are increasingly recognized. The most common types of these lesions are dural arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) whereas, extradural AVFs are a very rare type of spinal AVF and can be associated with either extradural or intradural venous reflux. This results in neurological deficits through congestive or(More)
