Saccular intracranial aneurysms are balloon-like dilations of the intracranial arterial wall; their hemorrhage commonly results in severe neurologic impairment and death. We report a second genome-wide association study with discovery and replication cohorts from Europe and Japan comprising 5,891 cases and 14,181 controls with approximately 832,000(More)
BACKGROUND Non-traumatic subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) is a devastating disorder and in the majority of cases it is caused by rupture of an intracranial aneurysm. No actual data are available on the incidence of non-traumatic SAH and aneursymal SAH (aSAH) in the Netherlands and little is known about treatment patterns of aSAH. Our purpose was therefore to(More)
Patients with Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) have an increased risk of developing neoplasms. The most common brain tumors, found in 15%-20% of NF1 patients, are hypothalamic-optic gliomas, followed by brainstem and cerebellar pilocytic astrocytomas. These tumors generally have a benign nature. NF1 patients are predisposed to a 5-fold increased incidence of(More)
Aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (aSAH) is a devastating event with substantial case-fatality. Our purpose was to examine which clinical and neuro-imaging characteristics, available on admission, predict 60 day case-fatality in aSAH and to evaluate performance of our prediction model. We performed a secondary analysis of patients enrolled in the(More)
BACKGROUND Aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (aSAH) is a devastating event with a frequently disabling outcome. Our aim was to develop a prognostic model to predict an ordinal clinical outcome at two months in patients with aSAH. METHODS We studied patients enrolled in the International Subarachnoid Aneurysm Trial (ISAT), a randomized multicentre trial(More)
Intracranial aneurysms are bulbous expansions of the intracranial vessels that may rupture and lead to subarachnoid haemorrhage, a bleeding in the space lining the brain. This can result in severe disability or death of the affected person. The prediction of the individual rupture risk of a patient based on information from images, haemodynamic simulations,(More)
