A 74-year-old woman presented with malignant progression of remnant epidermoid cyst manifesting as sudden onset of right ptosis and double vision. She had right oculomotor nerve paresis. She had a history of surgery for right cerebellopontine angle epidermoid cyst 20 years previously. T(1)-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) imaging demonstrated a hypointense(More)
PURPOSE Parietal foramina (PFs) are openings of fine canals that perforate the parietal bone. However, few studies have investigated the entire canals and their emissary vessels (EVs). Here, we explore the EVs with magnetic resonance imaging. METHODS A total of 104 patients who underwent contrast examinations and exhibited an intact scalp, skull, dura(More)
Objective Osteochondroma (OC) is the most common benign bone neoplasm. It infrequently occurs in the cranial cavity as a calcified lesion and very rarely presents in the sellar region. The present study summarizes the knowledge about OCs of the sellar region. Methods We searched the literature search for the clinical appearance of OCs and other calcified(More)
We report two cases of proximal posterior cerebral artery (PCA) aneurysms treated with endovascular parent artery occlusion (PAO) with coils. In both cases, selective injection from the 4 F distal access catheter clearly showed the perforating arteries arising from the PCA. Case No 1, a 49-year-old woman, was successfully treated with preservation of a(More)
Flow diversion stents (FDSs) are constructed from high-density braided mesh, which alters intra-aneurysmal hemodynamics and leads to aneurysm occlusion by inducing thrombus formation. Although there are potential complications associated with FDS embolization, one of the serious complications is the parent artery occlusion due to the in-stent thrombosis. A(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Recanalization of post-embolization cerebral aneurysms remains a serious problem that influences treatment outcomes. Matrix2 is a bioactive, bio-absorbable, detachable coil that was developed to reduce the risk of recanalization. We examined the short-term efficacy of the Matrix2 coil system, and evaluated the temporal profile of(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We report the results of endosaccular coil embolization of asymptomatic unruptured intracranial aneurysms (UIAs) in elderly patients (≥65 years). MATERIALS There were 375 elderly patients with 400 asymptomatic UIAs. Patients were divided into two groups: group A included patients aged 65-74 years and group B patients aged ≥75 years.(More)
A 56-year-old man complained of gait disturbance and confused thinking. Magnetic resonance imaging(MRI)revealed an arteriovenous malformation(AVM)of the cerebellar vermis(Spetzler-Martin grade IV)causing hydrocephalus. One dilated precentral cerebellar vein was compressing the aqueduct. After feeder embolization over 3 sessions using N-butyl(More)
After coil embolization, recanalization in cerebral aneurysms adversely influences long-term prognosis. Proliferation of endothelial cells on the coil surface may reduce the incidence of recanalization and further improve outcomes after coil embolization. We aimed to map the expression of proliferating tissue over the aneurysmal orifice and define the(More)
Intracranial aneurysms are extremely rare in infants, and to our knowledge only seven infants treated for ruptured spontaneous dissecting aneurysms have been reported. Good outcomes have been achieved with endovascular treatment of infantile aneurysm. We the endovascular treatment of a one-month-old girl for ruptured dissecting aneurysm located in the(More)
