BACKGROUND Coil embolization of intracranial aneurysms is being increasingly used; however, thromboembolic events have become a major periprocedural complication. OBJECTIVE To determine the safety and efficacy of prophylactic tirofiban in patients with ruptured intracranial aneurysms. METHODS Tirofiban was administered as an intravenous bolus (8.0 μg/kg(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the safety and outcome of intracranial stenting for intracranial atherosclerotic stenosis (IAS). MATERIALS AND METHODS Between July 2007 and April 2013, 433 consecutive patients with IAS > 70% underwent intracranial Wingspan stenting, and the data were prospectively analyzed. RESULTS Intracranial stenting was successful in 429(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the safety, effect and instent restenosis rate of Wingspan stenting in treating patients with intracranial vertebral artery atherosclerotic stenosis (70-99%) concurrent with contralateral vertebral artery atherosclerotic diseases. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighty-eight patients with severe symptomatic intracranial vertebral artery(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the safety and long-term effect of using the Wingspan stent for severe symptomatic atherosclerotic basilar artery stenosis (≥70%). MATERIALS AND METHODS Between July 2007 and April 2013, we had 91 consecutive patients (age range 41-82 years old) with symptomatic severe basilar stenosis (70-99%) who underwent Wingspan stenting at(More)
This study was to investigate the periprocedural stroke rates, safety, and long-term effect of Wingspan stenting for symptomatic severe stenosis of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) at a high-volume center. Between July 2007 and April 2013, 196 consecutive patients with severe MCA atherosclerotic stenosis (≥70 %) who were treated with Wingspan stenting were(More)
PURPOSE We aimed to investigate the safety and effectiveness of intracranial stenting in a population with severe (≥ 70%) symptomatic intracranial internal carotid artery (ICA) atherosclerotic stenosis. METHODS Fifty-eight patients with severe intracranial ICA atherosclerotic stenosis were prospectively enrolled. The baseline data, cerebral angiography,(More)
