BACKGROUND There is an increasing application of endovascular treatment for brain arteriovenous malformations (BAVMs) using ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymer (Onyx). Historically, this treatment has been performed using a transarterial approach. OBJECTIVE To report our experience with transvenous endovascular embolization with Onyx (TVEO). METHODS Five(More)
Solitaire AB stent-assisted coiling facilitates the endovascular treatment of wide-necked intracranial aneurysms. Solitaire Aneurysm Remodeling is the first prospective, consecutive, European multicentric study whose main objective was to evaluate the safety, short-, and long-term efficacy of the Solitaire AB stent. This first analysis is focused on the(More)
Endovascular treatment of large, wide-necked intracranial aneurysms with coils is associated with low rates of initial angiographic occlusion and high rates of recurrence. The Pipeline™ Embolization Device has shown high rates of complete occlusion in uncontrolled clinical series. The study is a prospective, controlled, randomized, multicenter, phase 2(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Endovascular treatment of wide-neck anterior communicating artery aneurysms can often be challenging. The Woven EndoBridge (WEB) device is a recently developed intrasaccular flow disrupter dedicated to endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms. The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of(More)
BACKGROUND High blood pressure (BP) is associated with worse clinical outcomes in the setting of acute ischemic stroke, but the optimal blood pressure target is still a matter of debate. We aimed to study the association between baseline BP and mortality in acute ischemic stroke patients treated by mechanical thrombectomy. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of(More)
Embolization of head and neck hypervascular tumors is a well-established therapeutic technique. Preoperative embolization reduces intraoperative blood loss, shortens the length of surgery, and decreases surgical morbility and mortality. This study assesses the safety and efficacy of preoperative embolization of meningiomas fed by the OPH by using Onyx(More)
OBJECTIVES Carotid angioplasty with stenting (CAS) in patients with carotid stenosis (CS) has become more restricted in France especially since the disclosure of such studies as EVA-3S and Stent-supported percutaneous angioplasty of the carotid artery versus endarterectomy (SPACE). This report is of a series of CS cases contraindicated for endarterectomy(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The use of Onyx in the treatment of intracranial AVMs has increased the cure rate of endovascular embolization compared with the use of liquid adhesive agents. Inadvertent occlusion of the draining veins before the complete exclusion of the nidus constitutes a major risk of bleeding. We report a case series using the technique of(More)
Ischemic stroke is the primary cause of acquired disability in the world and its treatment is still a challenge. Intravenous (IV) thrombolysis with recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA) administered within 4½ hours of the onset of the symptoms is the only approved medical treatment in the acute phase of cerebral infarction. However, its efficacy(More)
SUMMARY Sinus Pericranii is a rare venous anomaly in which the communication between the intra- and extracranial venous system is constituted by a network of thin-walled veins that form a varix on the external table of the skull. This varix is continuous with the pericranial veins of the scalp. We describe a 31-year-old woman with frontal sinus pericranii(More)
