There are very few cases of primary pericardial sarcomas reported in the English literature. Pericardial tumors, like other cardiac tumors, are most likely to be metastatic in nature and are an extension of primary tumors from the surrounding structures. Sarcomas are the most common primary pericardial tumors. Surgical eradication of the tumor is considered(More)
Brain arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are traditionally considered congenital lesions, arising from aberrant vascular development during the intrauterine period. Rarely, however, AVMs develop in the postnatal period. Individual case reports of de novo AVM formation in both pediatric and adult patients have challenged the traditional dogma of a congenital(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Flow diversion with the Pipeline Embolization Device has emerged as an attractive treatment for cerebral aneurysms. Processes involved in aneurysm occlusion include changes in intra-aneurysmal hemodynamics and endothelialization of the device. Here, we call attention to a radiographic sign not previously reported that is detected in(More)
INTRODUCTION Cerebral vasospasm following subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is the single most important cause of neurological decline following successful treatment of the ruptured aneurysm. Here, we report safety and efficacy of non-compliant balloon angioplasty for the treatment of cerebral vasospasm. METHODS Three major academic institutions in the United(More)
INTRODUCTION Stent-coiling of bifurcation aneurysms has significantly expanded the spectrum of aneurysms amenable to endovascular therapy. A variety of techniques have evolved to deal with wide-necked bifurcation aneurysms such as Y-stenting and WEB embolization device. In our 2 institutions, we have primarily used a single stent coiling to treat most(More)
BACKGROUND Unruptured intracranial aneurysms (UIAs) are being detected and treated with endovascular techniques at an increasing rate, with little evidence on the optimal imaging follow-up protocol. We performed a survey of academic neurovascular centers in the United States to assess imaging follow-up strategies and costs after endovascular treatment of(More)
The management of cerebrovascular disease has advanced considerably in 2015. Five randomized control trials have firmly established the role of endovascular thrombectomy for ischemic strokes due to large vessel occlusion. The randomized trial of intraarterial treatment for acute ischemic stroke (MR CLEAN) (Berkhemer et al. NEJM 2015;372:11-20) was the first(More)
BACKGROUND Moyamoya disease is a vascular disorder characterized by progressive stenosis of the internal carotid artery. The presentation, progression, treatment options, and post-operative clinical outcomes for elderly (60 and older) Moyamoya patients have never been reported. METHODS A retrospective analysis of all patients who were diagnosed with(More)
INTRODUCTION Titanium fixation plates are routinely used for rigid fixation of bone flaps after craniotomy. In craniofacial surgery or after craniotomy involving orbitozygomatic osteotomies, these plates are occasionally removed because of infection, pain, protrusion, soft tissue erosion, and plate malfunction. However, plate removal because of pain and(More)
OBJECTIVE Endovascular embolization, though initially approved as an adjunctive therapy for surgical excision of cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), has found extensive use in the management of these lesions. A number of systems have been proposed to stratify AVMs by the procedural risk of embolization, including the Buffalo score and AVM(More)
