SUMMARY The purpose of this study was to evaluate and report our anatomic results and complications associated with stent-assisted coil embolization of intracranial aneurysms using the Neuroform stent. From September 2003 to August 2007, 127 consecutive patients (ruptured 50, 39.4%; unruptured 77, 60.6%) underwent 129 stent-assisted coil embolization(More)
SUMMARY Stenting as adjuvant therapy for the coiling of acutely ruptured aneurysms remains controversial due to the necessity of anticoagulation and antiplatelet medications. We report our experience using the Neuroform stent in the management of 41 aneurysms in 40 patients over a period of three years. For aneurysms whose open surgical risk remains(More)
BACKGROUND We sought to report our technical success and complications in treating distal anterior cerebral artery (ACA) aneurysms with coil embolization. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed all patients undergoing coil embolization of distal ACA aneurysms from September 1999 to March 2008. Patients were assessed for subarachnoid hemorrhage, fundus size,(More)
BACKGROUND we report our technical success and complication rates in treating posterior circulation aneurysms at sites other than the basilar apex, superior cerebellar artery origin, or the posterior inferior cerebellar artery origin via endovascular embolization or sacrifice. MATERIALS AND METHODS we retrospectively reviewed case records for patients(More)
