The temporary arterial spring clip designed by Dr. Frank Mayfield of Cincinnati* has been distr ibuted widely among neurosurgeons. Although it has not been described formally in the scientific literature, frequent mention of it in publications on the surgery of intracranial aneurysms attests to the usefulness of this instrument),2 t ~'. The value of the clip is affected in no way by the complications described here; however, a warning is given that others may avoid the same difficulty in…

Temporary Occlusion of Trunk Arteries of the Brain during Surgery
TLDR
It is believed that, prior to the start of aneurysm dissection, it is better to bring the internal pressure of the aneurYSm to zero using a temporary clip, to collapse the angeeysm, and then to perform a rapid and certain treatment of the neck region.
Temporary vessel occlusion during intracranial aneurysm repair.
TLDR
Further refinements in cerebral monitoring that can accurately reflect intracellular processes in all territories affected by the application of temporary clips or balloon occlusion and development of more effective forms of cerebral protection may permit safer use of this technique.
Histological change in permanently clipped or ligated cerebral arterial wall
TLDR
The optimum condition for temporary and permanent clips was considered, and the granulation tissue reaction round the clip began to occur after one month, and was enough to embed the blade of the clip after three months.
[Recurrent cerebral aneurysm suggestive of misplaced clipping. Case report].
TLDR
There is a likelihood of early recurrence after neck clipping if the parent artery exhibits such morphological features as observed in this case, as well as a possible explanation of the recurrence of recurrent cerebral aneurysm after complete neck clipping.
latrogenic Traumatic Intracranial Aneurysm
A rare case of iatrogenic traumatic intracranial aneurysm which was found on the internal carotid artery 8 months after clipping of the basilar artery aneurysm is reported. A 25-year-old male was
Memory clip for intracranial aneurysm surgery. Technical note.
The authors have devised a malleable V-shaped removable clip with mechanical memory effect of shape memory. This clip is easily removed by heating part of it to 79 degrees to 107 degrees C, causing
Traumatic intracranial aneurysms.
Eleven cases of traumatic intracranial aneurysms, six saccular and five arteriovenous, are presented with an operative mortality of 22.2%, which compares favorably with the few reports in the
Vascular Clips for the Microsurgical Treatment of Stroke
  • J. Fox
  • Medicine, Physics
    Stroke
  • 1976
TLDR
A synopsis of the types of vascular clips used by neurosurgeons during this century is presented and a review of the pertinent literature is included.

TLDR
Evaluating various methods of treatment for ruptured intracranial aneurysms in 115 patients treated under similar conditions by the same surgeons found them to be satisfactory.
