Glubran 2 is a cyanoacrylate-based synthetic glue modified by the addition of a monomer synthesized by the manufacturer. With this material it is possible to obtain the stability of endovascular embolization that is needed to treat tumours and vascular disease. We report our 3-year experience of the use of Glubran for treating extracerebral tumours, spinal(More)
SUMMARY This study aimed to define the indications, technique and results of presurgical embolization of spinal tumours using Glubran 2 acrylic glue. Embolization was performed prior to surgery in eight patients with benign tumours and 11 patients with malignant lesions. The main embolization agent used was Glubran 2, a new acrylic glue with the EC mark,(More)
SUMMARY This retrospective study aimed to assess the percentage of complications in the daily practice of cerebral and spinal cord diagnostic angiography at our institution and to compare this with literature reports published in the last twenty years and guidelines for angiography. From 1(st) December 1998 to 1(st) December 2003 2154 patients underwent(More)
SUMMARY Endovascular stenting is a consolidated alternative to thrombendarterectomy in the treatment of extracranial carotid artery atheromasic stenosis. The most common complication of stenting is a distal embolism causing clinically silent orsymptomatic cerebral ischaemia. To prevent this complication distal embolism protection devices are often used but(More)
SUMMARY The endovascular approach to arteriovenous malformations (AVM) using different embolizing agents is a well-established treatment option. This report assesses the results of our experience using a non "glueing" embolic material available for several years, commercially known as Onyx(R). We used Onyx to treat 34 consecutive patients in the last four(More)
SUMMARY This retrospective study aimed to assess the percentage of complications arising in our daily practice of interventional procedures, comparing our findings with those of leading international reference centers and accepted guidelines for endovascular treatment. During the threeyear period considered (2000-2002), we performed 246 interventional(More)
The low-energy structure of Ac has been investigated by means of γ ray spectroscopy following the β decay of Ra. Multipolarities of 28 transitions have been established by measuring conversion electrons with a mini-orange electron spectrometer. The decay scheme of Ra → Ac has been constructed for the first time. The Advanced Time Delayed βγγ(t) method has(More)
