The relationship between human body size and brain size is still controversial, although brain size increases with body size across taxonomic levels. The magnetic resonance imaging volumetric analysis of the brain was performed in healthy 20-year old Koreans to investigate the effect of body size on brain volume. The whole brain volume was significantly(More)
PURPOSE Axium™ coils were developed to improve the durability of coil-embolized cerebral aneurysms by increasing packing density. The purpose of this prospective multicenter registry was to evaluate the safety and durability of Axium™ coils. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred twenty-six patients with 135 aneurysms of ≤ 15 mm in size underwent coil(More)
The authors present a case of giant serpentine aneurysm (a partially thrombosed aneurysm containing tortuous vascular channels with a separate entrance and outflow pathway). Giant serpentine aneurysms form a subgroup of giant intracranial aneurysms, distinct from saccular and fusiform varieties, and in this case, too, the clinical presentation and(More)
Hydrogen bonding has a ubiquitous role in electron transport1,2 and in molecular recognition, with DNA base-pairing being the best known example.3 Scanning tunneling microscope (STM) images4 and measurements of the decay of tunnel-current as a molecular junction is pulled apart by the STM tip, 5 are sensitive to hydrogen-bonded interactions. Here we show(More)
INTRODUCTION Although perfusion CT (PCT) for the detection of supratentorial stroke is well established, there is a dearth of evidence of its effectiveness in the detection of infratentorial stroke. Hence, this study compared sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of PCT maps between infratentorial and supratentorial stroke lesions. METHODS One hundred(More)
INTRODUCTION We sought to determine whether Alberta Stroke Program Early CT Scores (ASPECTS) derived from baseline noncontrast CT (NCCT) and perfusion CT (CTP) imaging maps can predict clinical outcome after recanalization therapy in acute ischemic stroke of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) territory and whether changes in the ASPECTS from baseline to 24 h(More)
OBJECTIVE This study analyzed the relationship between prognosis and multiple clinical factors of ruptured middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysm with intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), to aid in predicting the results of surgical treatment. METHODS Enrolled subjects were 41 patients with ruptured MCA aneurysm with ICH who were treated with surgical clipping.(More)
OBJECTIVE Although the detection of crossed cerebellar diaschisis (CCD) by means of different imaging modalities is well described, little is known about its diagnosis by computed tomography perfusion (CTP) imaging. We investigated the detection rate of CCD by CTP imaging and the factors related to CCD on CTP images in patients with acute ischemic stroke.(More)
We report on two cases of microguidewire breakage that occurred during endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms. The microguidewire can be broken when a part of the wire is stuck due to vascular tortuosity, and, subsequently, application of excessive rotational movement. The mechanical and physical properties of a microguidewire are also important(More)
