BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE We present a rare case of fenestration of the left supraclinoid intracranial internal carotid artery with 2 associated aneurysms arising proximally and distally from the fenestration that were successfully treated with endovascular coil embolization. This is the first report of these types of aneurysms treated with coiling alone.(More)
OBJECTIVES Low response to antiplatelet drugs is one of the risk factors for ischemic events. We examined the influence of low response to clopidogrel on symptomatic ischemic events and new ischemic MRI lesions with endovascular intracranial aneurysmal coil embolization. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between August 2010 and July 2013, 189 procedures in 181(More)
BACKGROUND The efficacy for the treatment of large carotid cavernous aneurysms (CCAs) was compared between conventional endovascular treatments, stent-assisted coiling (SAC), parent artery occlusion (PAO), and the flow diverter (FD). METHODS Between January 2001 and December 2015, 49 patients with large, broad-necked, unruptured CCA underwent endovascular(More)
Spinal cord infarction is an unusual complication of intracranial neuroendovascular intervention. The authors report on two cases involving spinal cord infarction after endovascular coil embolization for large basilar-tip aneurysms. Each aneurysm was sufficiently embolized by the stent/balloon combination-assisted technique or double catheter technique.(More)
INTRODUCTION In endovascular embolization for intracranial aneurysms, it is important to properly control the coil insertion force. However, the force can only be subjectively detected by the subtle feedback experienced by neurointerventionists at their fingertips. The authors envisioned a system that would objectively sense and quantify that force. In this(More)
In the medical field, treatments with minimized size of surgery scars to reduce the physical demands of patients are widespread. A typical example of such treatments is a therapy using a catheter. This procedure involves inserting a thin tube called a catheter into a duct of the human body and treating an affected part from inside the duct. Recently, the(More)
OBJECTIVE Neuroendovascular treatment (NET) is an effective and minimally invasive procedure used for patients with vascular disease of the central nervous system. The purpose of this study was to examine anxiety levels using standardized psychometric tools and an original questionnaire among patients before and after NET. METHOD A total of 40 patients(More)
Dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF) is classically defined as abnormal arteriovenous connections located within the dural leaflets. Though the exact etiology is still not clear, they are generally accepted as acquired lesions. However, some DAVFs formed as the congenital disorders are called dural arteriovenous malformations and these lesions with a marked(More)
BACKGROUND Virtual Histology intravascular ultrasound (VH IVUS) volumetric analysis (analysis of the entire plaque responsible for stenosis) has been used for carotid plaque diagnosis. Knowing the carotid plaque characteristics by analyzing the plaque composition only at the minimum lumen site will facilitate plaque diagnosis using VH IVUS. PURPOSE To(More)
