SUMMARY This is an unusual case report of an infant, who initially presented with a facial haemangioma and was later diagnosed to have a dural sinus malformation (DSM) involving the torcula. The DSM increased in size lateralising to the right transverse sinus at three months of age. Postnatal enlargement of the dural sinus has not been described before(More)
Present climatic change and anthropogenic pressure increasingly affect the coastal zone. Hundreds of archaeological sites are currently threatened along the European Atlantic coasts by the accelerated relative rise in sea level, erosion, and various anthropogenic modifications to the environment. Since 2006, the ALERT (Archeologie, Littoral et Rechauffement(More)
Different types of malformations share a dilated vein of Galen, but only one of them is a true vein of Galen aneurysmal malformation (VGAM). The optimal window of opportunity for treatment is between 4 and 5 years of months [corrected], because this allows the child to grow and mature. Heart failure and hydrocephalus respond favorably to embolization.(More)
SUMMARY The purpose of the paper is the follow-up of embolised intradural saccular Arterial Aneurysms (AA), excluding giant, dissecting, inflammatory, fusiform or AA associated to BVAM. Since its introduction in 1991, the Guglielmi Detachable Coil has offered protection against aneurysmal rebleeding in the critical few days and months after SAH regardless(More)
PURPOSE In this article we explore the various aspects of the supratentorial Single-Hole AVFs (ST AVFs) in children, focusing on their clinical features, angio-architecture, treatment indications and the role and results of endovascular management. MATERIALS AND METHODS Among 1565 cases of brain AVMs seen at our neurovascular center, 620 cases were seen(More)
We report 14 consecutive children with 23 posterior cranial fossa arteriovenous fistula (AVF); six had multifocal lesions, involving the supratentorial brain in three and the spinal cord in one. There were two boys and four girls with a family history compatible with hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia. The diagnosis was made in infancy in eight cases(More)
We present a case of Sturge-Weber syndrome with a bilateral lymphatic/venous malformation of the mandible. Modern biology suggests an explanation for such a case. The classification of cerebrofacial venous metameric syndromes (CVMS) enables us to recognise this lesion as involving the most caudal of the cranial metamere (CVMS 3).
Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is characterized by segmental vasoconstriction and dilatation of intracranial arteries, usually revealed by headaches, which spontaneously resolve in few weeks. We report a patient with RCVS, revealed by thunderclap headaches, involving both internal and external carotid artery (ECA). She received(More)
PURPOSE Thrombosis of cerebral arteriovenous malformation after embolization is rare, but can involve the normal venous network with extensive venous thrombosis. We report angioarchitecture findings, our management and prevention strategy for this complication in pediatric AVMs. METHODS In this 5.5-year retrospective series, we reviewed records of 13(More)
A 24-year-old man fell from the third floor. He developed an unilateral pulmonary parenchymal injury and a significant haemoptysis following blunt thoracic trauma. Because of its abundance, it was not possible to obtain adequat oxygenation. To protect controlateral lung from inhalation and to achieve adequat oxygenation, we used double lumen endotracheal(More)
