OBJECTIVE We sought to evaluate the early angiographic and clinical outcomes of the first session of endovascular coil occlusion of a large number of patients with intracranial aneurysms treated by five neurointerventionalists during a decade at a single center. METHODS We performed retrospective analyses of pre- and postprocedural angiographic studies(More)
OBJECTIVE Treatment of 11 patients with aneurysms or arteriovenous fistulae of the craniocervical arteries with stent grafts. METHODS Peripheral stent grafts were deployed in two extracranial internal carotid arteries. Coronary stent grafts were used to treat two giant aneurysms, five direct carotid-cavernous fistulae, one vertebrojugular fistula, and two(More)
OBJECT The aim of this study was to analyze the effect of the endovascular treatment of basilar artery (BA) bifurcation aneurysms and to compare the results with those published by other neuroendovascular teams. METHODS The authors performed a retrospective analysis of 316 aneurysms of the BA bifurcation that had been treated using endovascular coil(More)
Malignant myeloid blast cells may occasionally form a solid mass in tissues outside the haemopoietic system. These tumours are known as chloromas or granulocytic sarcomas. Chloromas occur most commonly in the context of acute myelogenous leukaemia but, rarely, they occur in the absence of other haematological disease, and may be misdiagnosed as lymphoma. A(More)
PURPOSE To report the efficacy of super-selective intra-ophthalmic artery melphalan (IAM) for the treatment of refractory retinoblastoma and any associated complications of this treatment. DESIGN A prospective case series. PARTICIPANTS Eyes with retinoblastoma that had been treated with systemic chemotherapy or local therapy and had a relapse of their(More)
BACKGROUND Capillary hemangioma in the cranial cavity is rare. This report describes 2 additional cases presenting shortly after pregnancy and provides a systematic review summarizing clinical experience to date. METHODS Case reports were compiled retrospectively. Patient 1 was a 28-year-old woman who presented with a simple partial seizure associated(More)
Various techniques for the endovascular treatment of dural arteriovenous fistulas (dAVFs) of the transverse and sigmoid sinus have recently evolved. Transvenous coil occlusion of the involved segment and transarterial embolization of the feeding arteries with liquid agents are the commonest treatments utilized. However, with respect to venous hypertension(More)
Operative management of choroid plexus tumours is hindered by excessive bleeding and significant CSF production. Our aim was to assess whether the use of preoperative embolisation would increase the safety of surgery by reducing the perioperative blood loss and achieve higher rates of resection of the tumour. Between 1996 and 2009, 30 patients (mean age(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Spinal dural arteriovenous fistulas are a rare entity that, if left untreated, can lead to considerable morbidity with progressive spinal cord symptoms. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical outcome of patients with spinal dural arteriovenous fistulas that were primarily treated with endovascular embolization. MATERIALS(More)
INTRODUCTION The flow diverting stent (FDS) is a relatively new endovascular therapeutic tool specifically designed to reconstruct the parent artery and divert blood flow along the normal anatomical course and away from the aneurysm neck and dome. METHODS Retrospective review of prospectively built clinical and imaging database of patients treated with(More)
