The purpose of this study was to investigate if and how health and well-being in mid-life are influenced by the ways in which individuals have combined educational, occupational, and family involvement throughout their adult lives. Life-career patterns (LC) and occupational career patterns (OC) were retrieved from a longitudinal cohort of Swedish women born(More)
A 48-year-old man suffered from spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage. Emergent right internal carotid angiography showed the presence of a persistent trigeminal artery (PTA) variant with a fusiform aneurysm on its proximal segment where it branched from the internal carotid artery. This artery supplied the territory of the anterior inferior cerebellar(More)
OBJECTIVE Tentorial dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF) is an uncommon disease with a poor natural history. Management of tentorial DAVF remains controversial. This study reports the technique and results of transarterial embolization using Onyx (Micro Therapeutics Inc., Irvine, CA) in the treatment of a series of 14 patients with tentorial DAVFs. METHODS(More)
The endovascular treatment of patients with tiny, wide-necked aneurysms is technically challenging, due to the small volume for microcatheterization and coil stabilization inside the aneurysm sac. We performed a retrospective study to evaluate the feasibility, effectiveness, and safety of stent-assisted embolization for patients with ruptured, tiny,(More)
OBJECTIVE Blood blister-like aneurysms (BBAs) are unique due to their high risk of recurrent bleeding associated with their fragile neck. The best treatment for BBAs is still controversial. This paper sought to evaluate the safety and efficacy of stent-assisted coiling and subsequent overlapping stents (SAC+OS) in the treatment of BBAs. METHODS Fifteen(More)
BACKGROUND Middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysms often occur in small parent vessels and are incorporated with the orifice of acute-angled efferent branch vessels. Endovascular treatment for these aneurysms remains technically challenging. This study aimed to assess the clinical safety and efficacy of the Low-profile Visualized Intraluminal Support Junior(More)
INTRODUCTION Few studies focused on predictors of unfavorable outcomes (modified Rankin Scale, 2-6) after reconstructive treatment of the ruptured intracranial spontaneous vertebral artery dissection aneurysms (ris-VADAs), which was evaluated based on 57 reconstructed lesions in this study. METHODS Results of 57 consecutive patients (M:F = 29∶28; median(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The effect of flow diverter (FD) on hemodynamic changes observed in aneurysms is inevitably affected by the actual structural configuration of deployed FD. We studied the resultant hemodynamic changes after implantation of FDs using computational fluid dynamic simulations based on micro-computed tomography reconstructions in rabbit(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Hemodynamic factors are commonly believed to play an important role in the pathogenesis, progression, and rupture of cerebral aneurysms. In this study, we aimed to identify significant hemodynamic and morphological parameters that discriminate intracranial aneurysm rupture status using 3-dimensional-angiography and computational fluid(More)
Endovascular treatment of ruptured tiny intracranial aneurysms (RTIA) is technically challenging. We retrospectively collected and analyzed the clinical data of 51 patients with RTIA who underwent attempted endovascular treatment at our institution between November 2000 and April 2009. Forty-nine patients were successfully treated by coiling alone (29(More)
