BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Low-profile self-expandable stents were recently introduced for the treatment of wide-neck intracranial aneurysms. This study investigated the initial and midterm clinical and angiographic results of LEO Baby stent-assisted coiling in the treatment of wide-neck intracranial aneurysms. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective review was(More)
OBJECTIVE Percutaneous treatment of hydatid cysts is relatively new, and the data related to it are limited. The purpose of this study was to provide additional data to strengthen the proof of its effectiveness. SUBJECTS AND METHODS One hundred sixty-eight hepatic cysts in 111 patients were treated using a percutaneous approach under sonographic and(More)
We present the MR imaging findings in an autopsy-proven case of selective neuronal necrosis involving the entire left cerebral hemispheric cortex, left thalamus, and contralateral cerebellum following a period of status epilepticus. Imaging findings include diffusion abnormality on diffusion-weighted images and increased intensity on T2-weighted images in(More)
The mortality in undrained abdominal abscesses is high with a mortality rate ranging between 45 and 100%. The outcome in abdominal abscesses, however, has improved due to advances in image guided percutaneous interventional techniques. The main indications for the catheter drainage include treatment or palliation of sepsis associated with an infected fluid(More)
Self-expandable metal stents (7 mm in diameter) combined with coaxial double-j stents were placed in 10 ureters in ten patients with malignant ureteral obstruction. After 2 and 3 months, when the double-j stents were removed in seven patients, six patients developed hydronephrosis and one patient tolerated removal of the double-j stent and had no signs of(More)
BACKGROUND This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of percutaneous treatment of giant abdominal hydatid cysts. METHODS In this study, 15 abdominal giant hydatid cysts were treated with the catheterization technique, which included puncture of the cyst, aspiration of fluid, instillation and respiration of hypertonic saline solution, and catheterization(More)
Movement disorders and epilepsy rarely occur in the early stage of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) but have not been reported concurrently. We report on a 47-year-old patient with probable CJD who presented with generalized chorea and focal dystonia with myoclonic jerks on the right hand. Myoclonic jerks progressed to epilepsia partialis continua within 5(More)
Association of leukoencephalopathy, cerebral calcifications, and cysts (LCC) is a rare disorder that was recently described. To our knowledge, only 2 reports, including 3 patients in each, have been published in the literature to date. Herein, we report a 19-year-old man with LCC who had neurological symptoms beginning in late adolescence. Clinically, he(More)
A Chiari malformation Type I may remain asymptomatic until the patient has reached adulthood and acute presentation of symptoms occurs. In several clinical and experimental studies it has been shown that essential hypertension is associated with vascular compression of the brainstem, particularly of the rostral ventrolateral medulla oblongata. Nevertheless,(More)
Behçet's disease is a multisystem disorder characterized by recurrent orogenital ulcerations and uveitis. Vascular involvement can include both arteries and veins, with a preponderance of venous lesions. Aneurysms of splanchnic arteries due to Behçet's disease have been rarely reported. We present an unusual case of superior mesenteric artery aneurysm due(More)
