OBJECT The aim of this study was to analyze the endovascular treatment results of using the Onyx liquid embolic system for spinal intramedullary arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). METHODS The clinical and radiological records of 17 patients with symptomatic spinal intramedullary AVMs treated exclusively by embolization with Onyx between 1999 and 2003(More)
Anatomical variants of the cerebral arteries in general are frequent and due to the complex ontogenesis of these structures. Although encountered in many mammals, a single anterior cerebral artery (ACA) trunk is an infrequent finding in humans with an incidence of 3-5%. This vessel, giving rise to the arteries of both frontal lobes, is subjected to high(More)
Delayed cerebral ischaemia (DCI) is the major cause of mortality and morbidity following aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH). Recent experimental evidence from animal models has highlighted the need for non-invasive and robust measurements of brain tissue perfusion in patients in order to help understand the pathophysiology underlying DCI.(More)
OBJECT Endovascular treatment of very small aneurysms poses a significant technical challenge for endovascular therapists. The authors review their experience with a series of patients who had intracranial aneurysms smaller than 3 mm in diameter. METHODS Between 1995 and 2006, 97 very small aneurysms (defined for purposes of this study as < 3 mm in(More)
INTRODUCTION Idiopathic ruptured aneurysms of distal cerebellar arteries (DCAAs) are rare, and their endovascular therapy (EVT) has as yet not been extensively reported. They are usually assumed to result from local arterial wall disruption rather than infection, unlike distal supratentorial artery aneurysms. This study was performed to audit their(More)
BACKGROUND Primary endovascular reconstruction with flow diversion represents a fundamental paradigm shift in the technique of endovascular aneurysm treatment. Unlike coil embolization, often there remains residual post-procedural filling within the aneurysm with flow diverters, the curative reconstruction presumably occurring over a period of weeks. Thus,(More)
CONCLUSION This p:aper extends the known area of pre-European fires and the dating of a major, fire elucidates some aspects of the forest dynamics of the Northern Tararuas. Although only the Tiritea catchment has been studied in detail, this same fire, or another in the sa'me period, apparently swept much of the Ot,mgaue, Kahuterawa and Tokomaru(More)
INTRODUCTION Thrombotic events are a common and severe complication of endovascular aneurysm treatment with significant impact on patients' outcome. This study evaluates risk factors for thrombus formation and assesses the efficacy and safety of abciximab for clot dissolution. MATERIALS AND METHODS All patients treated with abciximab during (41 patients)(More)
We present a case report of a 56-year-old woman with a ruptured fusiform aneurysm of a fenestrated A(1) segment of the anterior cerebral artery (ACA). Fenestrated A(1) segments are rare and only a few case reports have been published of a saccular type aneurysm formation. To the best of our knowledge, there have been no documented cases of fusiform(More)
OBJECTIVE Delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) causing cerebral infarction remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality following aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH). Early brain injury in the first 72 hours following rupture is likely to play a key role in the pathophysiology underlying DCI but remains difficult to quantify objectively. Current(More)
