BACKGROUND Tentorial dAVMs as a cause of trigeminal neuralgia are extremely rare. Consensus exists that radical treatment of such high-flow dAVMs should be considered because of their high risk of bleeding. The authors present a case of a 50-year-old man who presented with symptoms of tic douloureux caused by tentorial dAVM, which was treated successfully(More)
BACKGROUND Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) of the scalp are relatively rare, and their precise natural course remains to be elucidated. We encountered a patient with a scalp AVM that progressively enlarged over the course of 3 years by capturing feeders from intracranial arteries. To our knowledge, ours is the first serial angiographic depiction of the(More)
In pediatric patients with head injury, progressive hemispheric low density (HLD) on CT is a specific phenomenon although the underlying mechanism remains controversial. We used CT, MRI, diffusion weighted imaging (DWI), and perfusion weighted imaging (PWI) studies to identify pathophysiological patterns in a child. A 6-year-old boy sustained a left(More)
We report a case of hemorrhagic giant cell tumor (GCT) of the temporal bone in a 77-year-old woman. The patient suffered from sudden-onset headache and vomiting associated with left temporal hemorrhage. MRI revealed a left temporal extradural mass lesion expanding to the subtemporal fossa, showing strong hypointensity on T(2)-weighted imaging. Subsequent(More)
The data for subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) from the Japanese Standard Stroke Registry Study (JSSRS) were analyzed to evaluate the incidence of SAH according to age, neurological grading and outcome, and outcome of surgical clipping, for comparison with the International Subarachnoid Aneurysm Trial (ISAT). From the ISSRS data, the peak incidence of SAH was(More)
The treatment for patients with near occlusion of the cervical internal carotid artery (ICA) is controversial. The aim of this study was to examine the results of carotid artery stenting (CAS) as a surgical treatment for ICA near occlusion. Between April 2008 and September 2012, 14 patients (all men; mean age, 75.4 years) with ICA near occlusion were(More)
The combination of trigeminal neuralgia and ipsilateral hemifacial spasm, known as painful tic convulsif (PTC), is a relatively rare entity in neurovascular compression syndrome. A case of PTC attributable to different offending arteries is described, the mechanisms and characteristics of PTC are discussed, and a review of the literature is presented. This(More)
A traumatic carotid-cavernous fistula and an intracranial pseudoaneurysm are uncommon but well-known complications of head trauma. A rare subtype of arteriovenous fistula may occur from a pseudoaneurysm of the anterior communicating artery (AcoA) instead of the internal carotid artery. We describe a patient with a traumatic pseudoaneurysm of the AcoA with a(More)
BACKGROUND We examine the impact of the installation of integrated hybrid operating rooms (ORs) that allow both surgical and endovascular procedures and are designed for less invasive and 1-stage treatment of complex neurovascular lesions. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed our experience in the treatment of complex neurovascular lesions in a hybrid OR.(More)
Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) is the preferred method for confirming dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs), but it has the disadvantage of being invasive. In contrast, time-resolved magnetic resonance angiography (TR-MRA) is a useful, noninvasive imaging technique. The aim of this study was to compare the evaluation of DAVFs of the cavernous sinus(More)
