BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Important findings, such as aneurysm remnants or major arterial occlusion, can be detected on intra- or postoperative angiography after surgical clipping of intracranial aneurysms. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of IV-ACT for the postoperative detection of residual aneurysms and parent vessel patency(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE ICAS is one of the therapeutic options in symptomatic cerebral artery stenosis. iaDSA is the current criterion standard examination after ICAS for the detection of ISR. In this study, we evaluated ivACT as a potential noninvasive follow-up alternative. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 17 cases, ivACT and iaDSA were performed after ICAS.(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Patient selection is crucial in the endovascular treatment of acute ischemic stroke patients. Baseline computed tomographic (CT) images, evaluated with the Alberta Stroke Program Early CT Scale (ASPECTS), are considered significant predictors of outcome. In this study, we evaluated CT images and perfusion parameters, analyzed with(More)
We hereby report a novel technical approach for the treatment of acute stroke with underlying tandem occlusion. The so-called retriever wire supported carotid artery revascularization (ReWiSed CARe) technique, utilizing the wire of a stent-retriever as a guiding wire for carotid artery stenting, is technically feasible in tandem occlusions caused by an(More)
Introduction: Paragangliomas are rare tumors representing a therapeutic challenge. In particular, the surgical removal may lead to life-threatening bleeding. The preoperative percutaneous embolization is an alternative that allows a high closure rate of tumor-feeding vessels in a short intervention time and thus significantly reduces intraoperative bleeding(More)
Endovascular treatment (EVT) of acute ischemic stroke is the new standard of treatment in patients with large artery occlusion (LAO) [1, 2]. A short time from symptom onset to reperfusion and especially from hospital admission to reperfusion is crucial for a good clinical outcome [3]. To reduce the time from hospital admission to reperfusion, we combined(More)
Background. Atrial fibrillation (AF) is an important cause of embolic stroke of undetermined source (ESUS). Imaging-patterns like multiple infarcts, simultaneous involvement of different circulations, infarcts of different ages, and isolated cortical infarcts are likely to indicate cardioembolic stroke. The aim of our study was to evaluate the association(More)
OBJECTIVES Intra-arterial digital subtraction angiography (IA-DSA), an invasive procedure, is the current reference examination after percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and stenting for the detection of in-stent restenosis (ISR). In this phantom study, we evaluated flat-panel angiographic computed tomography after intravenous contrast agent application(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Intrahospital time delays significantly affect the neurological outcome of stroke patients with large-vessel occlusion. This study was conducted to determine whether a one-stop management can reduce intrahospital times of patients with acute large-vessel occlusion. METHODS In this observational study, we report the first 30(More)
