BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Vascular endothelium, which can be affected by statins, is believed to play a substantial role in subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Our objective was to estimate the association between use and withdrawal of statins and the risk of SAH. METHODS We conducted a population-based case-control study within the PHARMO database. A case was(More)
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 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)
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)
Intracranial aneurysm volume and shape are important factors for predicting rupture risk, for pre-surgical planning and for follow-up studies. To obtain these parameters, manual segmentation can be employed; however, this is a tedious procedure, which is prone to inter- and intra-observer variability. Therefore there is a need for an automated method, which(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)
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)
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)
