BACKGROUND There is a growing body of literature supporting venous sinus stenosis as a causative etiology for many patients diagnosed with idiopathic intracranial hypertension. Recent series have documented improvement in the pre- and post-stenosis venous pressure gradient as well as clinical symptoms after stenting. Concomitant real time intracranial(More)
There has been a substantial increase in the number of neuroendovascular procedures performed over the last 15 years. Although rare, complications of cerebral angiography and neuroendovascular procedures have the potential to be devastating. Fortunately, dedication to careful patient selection, meticulous attention to technical detail, and standardization(More)
BACKGROUND Incomplete coil occlusion is associated with increased risk of aneurysm recurrence. We hypothesize that intracranial stents can cause flow remodeling, which promotes further occlusion of an incompletely coiled aneurysm. OBJECTIVE To study our hypothesis by comparing the follow-up angiographic outcomes of stented and nonstented incompletely(More)
The pipeline embolization device has demonstrated clinical success in the management of complex intracranial aneurysms arising along the anterior intracranial circulation with a relatively low complication profile. A case report is presented which describes a novel complication of delayed intraparenchymal hemorrhage following deployment of a pipeline(More)
Background and Purpose—We have previously reported the difference in length of stay and hospital charges for patients with cerebral aneurysms treated with either clipping or coiling at our institution. We now report an analysis of the same comparison at a national level conducted using the Nationwide Inpatient Sample database. Methods—We obtained the(More)
Supporters of the vertical mammoplasty state the resultant breast shape and scar are superior to the Wise pattern breast reduction. This study contains a comparison of the LeJour vertical reduction with the Wise pattern reduction by analysis of pre- and postoperative photographs, as well as a retrospective review comparing operative times, blood loss,(More)
OBJECTIVE The treatment of small unruptured intracranial aneurysms has been questioned based on the results of the International Study of Unruptured Intracranial Aneurysms. Our objective was to compare natural history rupture risk versus treatment risk for coiling and clipping small unruptured aneurysms using data in the Nationwide Inpatient Sample(More)
INTRODUCTION There have been recent reports of high vascular complication rates after the use of the Mynx vascular closure device (VCD). At our institution, vascular complications due to these devices have rarely been encountered. A study was undertaken to retrospectively compare angiographic abnormalities seen after femoral artery closure by both the Mynx(More)
