SUMMARY Periprocedural hypotension, which frequently occurs during carotid artery stenting (CAS), is an important risk factor for complications such as stroke or death after CAS. To determine if a scoring model can be established to predict periprocedural hypotension (systolic blood pressure < or = 90 mm Hg) and prolonged periprocedural hypotension(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)
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)
The use of 3D digital subtraction (DS) angiography provides a better understanding of spinal vascular lesion architecture. The authors report on 2 cases involving a spinal dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF) and demonstrate the usefulness of 3D DS angiography for endovascular treatment of these spinal DAVFs. In both cases, middle-aged male patients suffered(More)
OBJECT The Wada test is had been the most reliable for determining speech dominance. Drugs injected into the internal carotid artery, however, may be heterogeneously distributed as the result of asymmetry of the anterior cerebral arteries and the presence of a fetal-type posterior cerebral artery. Variations in drug distribution could occasionally alter(More)
OBJECT In endovascular coil embolization for an intracranial aneurysm, the excessive pressure created during coil insertion into an aneurysm can cause a catastrophic rupture or dislodge a microcatheter tip from the aneurysm dome, resulting in insufficient embolization. Such undue mechanical pressure can only be subjectively detected by the subtle tactile(More)
In coil embolization for an intracranial aneurysm, it is important to appropriately choose the coil most suitable for coping with various unforeseen situations. Additionally, because dense coil packing of the aneurysm sac is the most important factor to avoid a recurrence, properly selecting the coil is essential. In this article, the authors measured the(More)
