Fifteen patients with high-risk intracranial saccular aneurysms were treated using electrolytically detachable coils introduced via an endovascular approach. The patients ranged in age from 21 to 69 years. The most frequent clinical presentation was subarachnoid hemorrhage (eight cases). Considerable thrombosis of the aneurysm (70% to 100%) was achieved in all 15 patients, and preservation of the parent artery was obtained in 14. Although temporary neurological deterioration due to the… Expand
Endovascular treatment of posterior circulation aneurysms by electrothrombosis using electrically detachable coils.
It is suggested that this technique is a viable alternative in the management of patients with posterior fossa aneurysms associated with high surgical risk and longer angiographic and clinical follow-up study is necessary to determine the long-term efficacy of this recently developed endovascular occlusion technique.

Saccular aneurysms in moyamoya disease: endovascular treatment using electrically detachable coils.
Three patients with cerebrovascular features of MMD are described in whom four aneurysms of the posterior circulation were endovascularly occluded by electrothrombosis using the recently developed Guglielmi electrically detachable coils (GDC). Expand
Endovascular coiling for cerebral aneurysms.
Postprocedure management relies on skilled observers to determine those potential complications that may occur, including vasospasm, rupture, bleeding, or vessel occlusion, and advanced practice nurses have an obligation to be aware of the procedure and its management. Expand
Early endovascular treatment with coils for ruptured cerebral aneurysms
Early coil embolisation is a valuable alternative for the treatment of ruptured aneurysms using microcoils via an endovascular approach and significant occlusion was eventually achieved in all cases. Expand
Endovascular treatment of basilar tip aneurysms using electrolytically detachable coils.
The authors believe that this technique is a reasonable alternative for patients who are not candidates for conventional surgical treatment or in whom such treatment has failed. Expand
Clinical Follow-up of Coil-embolized Ruptured Saccular Cerebral Aneurysms
Embolization was safe and reliable in ruptured aneurysms with GDC, but new devices may be necessary to achieve more stable embolization status. Expand
Subarachnoid Hemorrhage Due to Ruptured Intracranial Aneurysm: Clipping or Coiling
Microsurgical clipping has a long-established benefit in preventing recurrent subarachnoid hemorrhage from a ruptured aneurysm. Since the advent of the detachable coil in 1990, the endovascularExpand
Endovascular treatment of remnants of intracranial aneurysms following incomplete clipping
Clinical and angiographic findings in eight patients treated by the endovascular approach for an intracranial aneurysm remnant after incomplete surgical clipping show complete occlusion of the remnant and good or excellent recovery in all patients. Expand
Preliminary results of embolisation of nonsurgical intracranial aneurysms with GD coils: The 1st year of their use
Embolisation was successful in 24 patients with nonsurgical intracranial aneurysms referred by neurosurgeons for endovascular treatment using platinum detachable coils (GDC, Target Therapeutics, Fremont, Calif., USA); no manufacturing defect was detected in the coils used. Expand
The surgical management of previously coiled cerebral aneurysms.
Cerebrovascular surgeons obtained their first glimpse of future challenges when they reported the open microsurgical management after partial coil embolization in 8 of their first 141 cases. Expand


Balloon embolization of a large distal basilar artery aneurysm. Case report.
Interventional neurovascular techniques have advanced to a level where treatment of intracranial aneurysms by intravascular detachable balloon embolization therapy is now possible. A patient isExpand
Electrothrombosis of saccular aneurysms via endovascular approach. Part 1: Electrochemical basis, technique, and experimental results.
Control angiograms obtained 2 to 6 months postembolization confirmed permanent aneurysm occlusion as well as patency of the parent artery in all cases and this technique has been applied in selected clinical cases which are described in Part 2 of this study. Expand
Experiences with surgical thrombosis of intracranial berry aneurysms and carotid cavernous fistulas.
It is suggested that intracavernous wire thrombosis may prove to be the treatment of choice in that it seals the fistula without impairing carotid blood flow. Expand
Surgical risk as related to time of intervention in the repair of intracranial aneurysms.
The modification of Botterell's classification 3 has been applied to 275 consecutive cases of intracranial aneurysm treated by the faculty and resident staff of the Ohio State University and affiliated hospitals over a 12year period and is of the opinion that a fairly sharp differentiation is possible among patients who have few or no meningeal signs, patients who has welldefined meningealing signs but no neurological deficit, and patients who show neurological malfunction.

The International Cooperative Study on the Timing of Aneurysm Surgery. Part 2: Surgical results.
Overall, early surgery was neither more hazardous nor beneficial than delayed surgery, and the postoperative risk following early surgery is equivalent to the risk of rebleeding and vasospasm in patients waiting for delayed surgery. Expand
Intravascular Occlusion of Saccular Aneurysms of the Cerebral Arteries by Means of a Detachable Balloon Catheter
Among the numerous methods of treatment of saccular arterial cerebral aneurysms particular attention has been recently focused on intravascular intervention using detachable balloon catheters. TheExpand
