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)
About 20 cases of cerebrovascular accidents in amusement parks have been documented. However, only a few cases of amusement park stroke (APS) after roller coaster rides have been reported. Here, we present triggers of stroke, clinical characteristics, and the angiographic appearance of 3 consecutive patients of APS. Their clinical characteristics included(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)
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. A total of 104 patients who underwent contrast examinations and exhibited an intact scalp, skull, dura mater, and superior(More)
Less invasive neuroimaging modalities have recently resulted in the more frequent detection of unruptured intracranial aneurysms(UIAs). Therefore, more patients, than ever before, with UIAs are currently being referred to neurosurgeons, who then must inform their patients of the optimal management possibilities. Endovascular therapy has become an important(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)
Horner syndrome due to injury to the cervical sympathetic trunk (CST) is a very rare complication of anterior cervical decompression and fusion (ACDF). We have not mentioned the possibility of Horner syndrome as a postoperative complication in patients before surgery. We present a patient with Horner syndrome after ACDF and discuss the anatomical background(More)
BACKGROUND Infectious intracranial aneurysms (IIAs) are rare but can cause substantial morbidity and mortality. We aimed to re-evaluate the role of endovascular therapy for the treatment of IIAs. METHODS This study is a retrospective review of patients diagnosed with IIAs and treated by endovascular therapy in our institutions over the past 13 years. (More)
