OBJECT The use of intracranial stents in stent-assisted coil embolization is now a current neurosurgical practice worldwide. The clinical utility of these stents in the sole stenting (SS) technique, however, has not been thoroughly described, and the published reports of this experience are scarce. This study was designed to evaluate SS treatment of(More)
Carotid rete mirabile (CRM) is a physiological network between the external carotid artery (ECA) and internal carotid artery (ICA) in lower mammals. It is a transdural arterial network centered at the parasellar area, in anatomical localization of intracavernous or petrous segment of ICA, associated with hypoplasia or absence of the cervical or petrous(More)
OBJECT So-called direct carotid-cavernous fistulas (CCFs) are commonly treated by detachable balloons or coils to occlude the shunt while sparing the carotid artery. Liquid embolic agents have been rarely used, and in particular, to the authors' knowledge, the use of Onyx as the sole agent has never been reported in an indexed publication. METHODS The(More)
BACKGROUND The proportionally higher incidence of intracranial atherosclerosis among Asian and black patients and a greater proclivity for intracranial artery stenosis in the Hispanic population merit drawing attention to a Latin American experience with intracranial arterial stenting. METHODS This is a retrospective analysis of an observational study of(More)
Endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms has evolved since the introduction of detachable coils. Sole stenting is a brand-new technique that has recently emerged as a definitive treatment for saccular or fusiform aneurysms at particular locations. Superior cerebellar artery aneurysms are rare, and few treated cases have been reported. Most of them(More)
Background and Importance. Sellar tuberculomas are extremely rare lesions with nonspecific clinical manifestations. The tuberculous infection of the pituitary gland and sellar region is characterized by the presence of an acute or chronic inflammatory reaction and may occur in the absence of systemic tuberculosis. The diagnosis is difficult prior to the(More)
INTRODUCTION The sole stenting technique has emerged as a new tool for the management of intracranial aneurysms. However, several concerns have emerged about the long-term behavior of intracranial stents, particularly their safety and efficacy. CASE PRESENTATION We present the first case of an intracranial aneurysm intentionally treated with the sole(More)
Sinus pericranii (SP) is an abnormal communication between the intracranial and extracranial venous drainage pathways. Treatment of this condition has mainly been recommended for aesthetic reasons and prevention of hemorrhage. The authors report a conservative treatment for the potentially lethal complications.
AIMS Non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) accounts for 25% of completed strokes (CS) of a cardioembolic origin in patients over 60 years old. Our aim was to define the predictors of a good and poor prognosis after a CS secondary to an NVAF in our milieu. PATIENTS AND METHODS We evaluated the risk factors (RF) and severity of CS in relation to death,(More)
BACKGROUND Wide-necked, saccular, dissecting, and fusiform intracranial aneurysms are poor coil retainers. Retention can be improved by parent-artery stenting across the aneurysm. METHODS We used a balloon-expandable stent and delivery system, intending to treat 38 aneurysms in 36 patients. Stents could not be advanced across the neck of 2 aneurysms near(More)
