OBJECTIVE Guglielmi detachable coil treatment is becoming an accepted alternative to microsurgical clipping for select intracerebral aneurysms. Resolution of oculomotor nerve paresis (ONP) after endovascular packing was claimed to be complete in two prior series, with three and six cases. We describe the evolution of ONP after Guglielmi detachable coil(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Endovascular embolization with Onyx is one of the tools used in the treatment of intracerebral AVMs. The recent introduction of a new microcatheter with detachable tip has led us to adopt a new treatment approach by using endovascular embolization with Onyx as the main treatment for brain AVM with curative intent. The purpose of the(More)
BACKGROUND Flow diverters are recently developed stent-like endovascular devices developed to treat complex and non-coilable aneurysms. SILK is a type of flow diverter that has been used for nearly 3 years. Only sparse data about it are available. We would like to share our experience with this device. METHODS Twenty-eight patients were treated with SILK(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Isolated dissecting aneurysms of the posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) carry a high risk of rebleeding with an associated increased mortality rate. Although rare, they present a therapeutic challenge. Surgical treatment carries a significant risk of neurologic complications, predominantly lower cranial nerve deficits because(More)
We describe a term male infant of healthy non-consanguineous parents, born with congenital malformations, including bilateral cleft palate and lip, mild microphthalmia with iris coloboma and glaucoma of the right eye, and blepharophimosis with severe microphthalmia of the left eye. Spine radiograph and MRI showed first sacral hemivertebra with spina bifida,(More)
BACKGROUND Metastatic tumors involving the pituitary gland are very rare, with only few cases reported so far in the literature. CASE DESCRIPTION We report a case of a man who presented with an extremely vascular hemorrhagic pituitary metastasis as the first manifestation of renal cell carcinoma. The patient was successfully treated with staged(More)
OBJECTIVE In an era in which new computed tomographic scanners approach 100% sensitivity for finding intracranial aneurysms in patients with a perimesencephalic subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) pattern, digital subtraction angiography (DSA) is still considered the gold standard. Our purpose was to investigate whether or not computed tomography angiographic(More)
The authors report on a young woman with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) Type IV in whom a spontaneous direct carotid-cavernous fistula (CCF) was treated by transvenous occlusion with regular and fiber-coated Guglielmi detachable coils. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first time this approach has been used in a patient with EDS. The different treatment(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We present the first case of combined arterial (vertebral artery dissection) and venous [central sinus vein thrombosis (CSVT)] diseases presenting as Opalski syndrome in a female patient following induced delivery. CASE DESCRIPTION A 32-year-old woman was admitted to our institute two weeks after induced delivery with intriguing(More)
