Her initial National Institutes of Health Stroke Score (NIHSS) was 20. The right carotid artery stenting was performed because of the inappropriate result of angioplasty of the right internal carotid artery st...

Conclusions Endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms during severe and symptomatic vasospasm is safe and effective. Stent-assisted coiling in the presence of severe vasospasm is also feasible in wide-necked aneurysms with the additional benefits of mechanical vasodilation.

Objective Treatment outcomes for unruptured anterior communicating artery (ACoA) aneurysms are not well established. We aimed to investigate the safety and effectiveness of microsurgical clipping (MC), endovascular coiling (EC), and stent assisted coiling (SAC) of unruptured ACoA aneurysms to aid pretreatment clinical decisions. Methods A systematic review of the literature was conducted using the Ovid Medline and EMBASE electronic databases, encompassing all English language studies reporting treatment outcomes for unruptured ACoA aneurysms published between 2005 and 2015. The analyses were directed towards patient focus...

Conclusions The PED can be used safely and effectively in the treatment of aneurysms of the ACoA region. This represents a good alternative treatment option to microsurgical clipping and endovascular coiling.

Cohen-Gadol Blister aneurysms at non-branching sites of the dorsal internal carotid artery (dICA) are fragile, rare, and often difficult to treat. The purpose of this study is to address the demographics, treatment modalities, and long-term outcome of patients treated for dICA blister aneurysms. A retrosp...

Conclusions In patients with good collateral circulation, endovascular sacrifice may be the preferred treatment for acutely ruptured dissecting aneurysms involving the distal vertebral artery.

Conclusions Angiographic, diagnostic imaging, and clinical results of our small series indicate that Onyx embolization of dissecting distal PICA aneurysms with parent artery preservation is an effective option with acceptable morbidity and mortality rate, in those cases in which surgical clipping or endovascular coiling of the aneurysmal sac is not suitable.

Objective: To identify differences between patients with isolated subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) vs SAH and sickle cell disease (SCD). Introduction: Neurological complications of SCD occur in 1/3 of cases. Ischemic strokes are the most common complication (75[percnt]), followed by intracerebral hemorrhage (20[percnt]). SAH is rare. There are several case reports of patients with SCD and SAH. However, no studies have described the frequency of SAH related to SCD among all patients with SAH. We sought to compare the demographics of SAH in SCD versus non-SCD patients. Methods: We searched the 2005-2010 Nationwide Inpatient Sam...
