A remarkable curing rate has been achieved in the treatment of intracranial intractable aneurysms by using flow-diverting stents (FDS). An appropriate metal coverage (MC) of this device influences the hemodynamics of aneurysm significantly but little to branches in vitro. The MC changes after elongation or compression and the actual changes are still(More)
To access the effect of actual metal coverage rate (MCR) on neointimal growth at covered side branch ostium and stented artery after implantation of a flow diversion device. Flow diverters (FDs) were implanted into abdominal aortas of 20 New Zealand rabbits. Four weeks and three months after FD implantation, the patency of side branches covered by the(More)
Endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) are believed to be involved in aneurysmal repair and remodeling. The aim of this study was to test this hypothesis and, if true, explore how EPC contribute to aneurysm repair in a rabbit model of elastase-induced carotid aneurysm. Rabbits were divided randomly into an in situ carotid EPC transfusion group (ISCT group,(More)
PURPOSE The optimal treatment modalities of ruptured middle cerebral artery aneurysm are still controversial. The objective of this study is to analyze the outcomes of patients with ruptured middle cerebral artery aneurysms treated by endovascular coiling. MATERIALS AND METHODS From October 2011 to October 2015, 67 patients with 71 ruptured middle(More)
