Low-Profile Laser-Cut Stents for Endovascular Treatment of Intracranial Aneurysms

ConclusionThe use of SAC with low-profile intracranial stents is associated with a  favorable safety profile; however, Y‑stenting may carry an increased risk of TEEs, which needs to be considered during treatment planning.

This study sought to assess the morphologic characteristics of ICAs and the effects of tortuosity on thrombectomy attempts. METHODS: A retrospective review was completed of neck CTAs of patients with acute ischemic stroke due to a large vessel occlusion that underwent attempted endovascular recanalization. Significant tortuosity of ICAs was defined as the presence of kink(s) (acute (

Traumatic cerebral aneurysms are histologically dissecting aneurysms or pseudoaneurysms, thus requiring parent artery occlusion for cure. Combination of endovascular parent artery occlusion and extracranial-intracranial bypass is considered optimal to obtain complete obliteration of the aneurysm and to avoid hemodynamic hypoperfusion. However, endovascular parent artery occlusion of the supraclinoid internal carotid artery (ICA) is at risk of ischemic complications due to distal coil protrusion to adjacent perforating arteries or distal embolism of the thrombi generated in the coil mass.

Conclusion: The SKEN members have been responsible for the major role of endovascular treatments in South Korea for the recent 5 years. This was achieved through the perseverance of senior members who started out in the midst of hardship, the establishment of standards for the training/certification of endovascular neurosurgery, and the enthusiasm of current SKEN members who followed. To provide better treatment to patients, we will have to make further progress in SKEN. PMID: 31288507 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Remarkable developments in the field of endovascular neurosurgery have been witnessed in the last decade. The success of endovascular therapy for ischemic stroke treatment is now irrefutable, making it an accepted standard of care. Endovascular treatment of cerebral aneurysms is no longer limited to primary coiling but now includes options such as stent or balloon assistance and flow diversion and applications utilizing neck reconstruction, intrasaccular, and bifurcation-specific devices. Balloons, liquid embolic agents, and flow-directed catheters have revolutionized the treatment of arteriovenous malfor...

The Collaborative Unruptured Endovascular versus Surgery Trial (CURES) found no difference in outcome between clipping versus coiling of unruptured aneurysms after one year. The Flow Diversion in the Treatment of Intracranial Aneurysm Trial (FIAT) was terminated due to safety concerns.

AbstractThe model of centralized stroke care in the Czech Republic was created in 2010 –2012 by Ministry of Health (MH) in cooperation with professional organization—Cerebrovascular Section of the Czech Neurological Society (CSCNS). It defines priorities of stroke care, stroke centers, triage of suspected stroke patients, stroke care quality indicators, their monitoring, and repor ting. Thirteen complex cerebrovascular centers (CCC) provide sophisticated stroke care, including intravenous thrombolysis (IVT), mechanical thrombectomy (MTE), as well as other endovascular (stenting, coiling) and neurosurgical proce...
