PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and safety of the transfacial venous embolization of cavernous or paracavernous dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF) in which approach via inferior petrosal sinus (IPS) was not feasible. MATERIALS AND METHODS We identified the cases of transfacial venous embolization of cavernous sinus (CS) or(More)
The pipeline embolization device (PED) is a new endovascular device for treatment of complex, fusiform and wide-neck intracranial aneurysms. The main mechanism of this stent is to divert the flow in the parent artery with reduction of inflow in the aneurysm leading to thrombosis. We treated a 40-year-old woman who had left facial pain and orbit discomfort.(More)
OBJECTIVE Intracranial stenting for stent-assisted coiling of aneurysms requires adequate follow-up imaging. The aim of this in vitro study was to compare in-stent artificial luminal narrowing on contrast-enhanced MR angiograms (CE-MRA) when applying Neuroform® and Enterprise® stents for stent-assisted coiling. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two intracranial(More)
OBJECTIVE Although middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysms are less amenable to coil embolization, an increasing number of studies support favorable endovascular treatment for them. The purpose of this study is to compare the outcomes of two different treatments (surgery versus coiling) and evaluate the benefits of surgical clipping for MCA aneurysms. (More)
BACKGROUND Blood blister-like aneurysms (BBAs) are difficult to treat both surgically and endovascularly, and the optimal treatment remains controversial. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical and angiographic feasibility of multiple overlapping stents (≥3) with coiling for treating BBA. METHODS A retrospective review from four institutions(More)
OBJECTIVE To select a surgical approach for aneurysm clipping by comparing 2 approaches. MATERIALS AND METHODS 204 patients diagnosed with subarachnoid hemorrhage treated by the same neurosurgeon at a single institution from November 2011 to October 2013, 109 underwent surgical clipping. Among these, 40 patients with Hunt and Hess or Fisher grades 2 or(More)
OBJECTIVE We compared the effect of decompressive craniectomy between patients < 65 and ≥ 65 years age and investigated prognostics factors that may help predict favorable outcome in acute stroke patients undergoing decompressive surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS 52 patients diagnosed with acute middle cerebral artery (MCA) territory infarction that(More)
The approach to ethmoidal dural arteriovenous fistulas (eDAVFs) is usually via a pterional or a frontal craniotomy. However, the transfrontal sinus is a more direct route to the fistula. The aim of this report is to describe our experience and associated complications occurring as a result of flow diversion in the transfrontal sinus approach for eDAVFs. In(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to retrospectively evaluate and compare the incidence of diffusion-weighted image (DWI) lesions between the Guglielmi detachable coil (GDC) and the Target coil for treating unruptured intracranial aneurysm. METHODS From 2010 to 2011, consecutive 222 patients with an intracranial aneurysm underwent coil embolization.(More)
BACKGROUND The diagnosis and treatment of unruptured paraclinoid aneurysms has been increasing with the recent advent of diagnostic tools and less invasive endovascular therapeutic options. Considering the low incidence of rupture, investigation of the characteristics of ruptured paraclinoid aneurysm is important to predict rupture risk of the paraclinoid(More)
