BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE This study arose from a need to systematically evaluate the clinical and angiographic outcomes of intracranial aneurysms treated with modified coils. We report the procedural safety and clinical outcomes in a prospective randomized controlled trial of endovascular coiling for ruptured and unruptured intracranial aneurysms, comparing(More)
Apparent diffusion coefficient maps of two patients with cyclosporine-induced neurotoxicity showed areas of increased diffusion that corresponded to the characteristic regions of signal change on routine T2-weighted sequences. The majority of lesions subsequently resolved without residual T2 or diffusion signal alteration. These findings suggest that, in(More)
AIM To determine the frequency, microbiological diversity and radiological patterns of central nervous system (CNS) infection following allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT). PATIENTS AND METHODS Two neuroradiologists retrospectively reviewed the computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations of a large cohort of bone(More)
In this paper the authors describe the first use of a new liquid embolic agent (Onyx) to treat spinal cord arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). Because its properties make it more predictable to use than currently available liquid agents, the authors believe that this material has great potential in the endovascular management of both spinal cord and brain(More)
OBJECT The role of radiosurgery in the treatment of cavernous malformations (CMs) remains controversial. It is frequently recommended only for inoperable lesions that have bled at least twice. Rehemorrhage can carry a substantial risk of morbidity, however. The authors reviewed their practice of treating deep-seated inoperable CMs to assess the complication(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To develop an MR imaging method that improves detection of leptomeningeal disease when compared with the current reference standard, contrast-enhanced T1-weighted imaging. METHODS We investigated the cases of 10 children who were at high risk of intracranial leptomeningeal disease (Sturge-Weber syndrome and medulloblastoma). The(More)
The authors describe the presentation, investigation and successful treatment of two giant serpentine aneurysms with Guglielmi detachable coils. Both aneurysms selectively involved the P2 segment of the posterior cerebral artery. The authors describe an endovascular approach to these challenging lesions as an alternative/adjunct to conventional surgery.
Arteriovenous malformations of the brain are complex vascular lesions that are an important cause of death and long-term disability. Currently, catheter angiography (CA) is the reference standard procedure for the diagnosis and follow-up of treated arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). This is an invasive procedure with potential risks. Magnetic resonance(More)
