BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Low-profile self-expandable stents were recently introduced for the treatment of wide-neck intracranial aneurysms. This study investigated the initial and midterm clinical and angiographic results of LEO Baby stent-assisted coiling in the treatment of wide-neck intracranial aneurysms. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective review was(More)
INTRODUCTION Blood blister-like aneurysms (BBAs) are fragile and difficult to treat. Routine surgical and endovascular treatment methods, such as clipping, clip wrapping, primary coiling, or stent assisted coiling, have relatively high morbidity and mortality rates. In this study, we report clinical and angiographic results for treatment of ruptured BBAs(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Endovascular treatment of wide-neck, complex, and distally located cerebral aneurysms is a challenging issue. This study evaluated the safety and efficacy of dual stent placement by using a low-profile stent system (LEO Baby) for the treatment of challenging distal intracranial aneurysms. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively(More)
Several neuroimaging studies have investigated brain metabolite abnormalities in patients with obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) and also explored metabolic changes after OCD treatments using proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-MRS). The main objective of this study was to investigate the effects of a selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitor (SSRI)(More)
The use of self-expandable stents for endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms has increased over time. Different types of stent malpositioning, such as stent migration, distortion, incomplete opening, and apposition, can occur as a complication of the stent deployment procedure. In this report, we present a successful retrieval of a low-profile(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The endovascular treatment of aneurysms located at or distal to the circle of Willis and not amenable to coiling remains a challenge. We report our experience with flow-diversion treatment using low-profile braided stents as a stent monotherapy procedure for treating distally located very small or uncoilable aneurysms. MATERIALS AND(More)
OBJECTIVE Coiling of wide-necked and complex bifurcation aneurysms frequently requires implantation of double stents in various configurations. T-stent-assisted coiling involves the nonoverlapping implantation of 2 stents to protect the daughter vessels of bifurcation and is followed by coiling of the aneurysm. The authors studied the feasibility, efficacy,(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE There is very limited data concerning utilization of flow diverters in children. Our aim is to report results for the treatment of complex intracranial aneurysms and carotid cavernous fistulas by using flow diverters in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective review of children (17 years of age or younger) treated with flow(More)
Dacron grafts are frequently used during surgical revascularization procedures. Complications including graft thrombosis and infection are well known; however, aneurysm formation is extremely rare. In this report, we describe dilatation of a Dacron graft detected four years after aortobifemoral bypass procedure in a 50-year-old male patient who was treated(More)
