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]

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...

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...

Introduction Endovascular coiling is a valid treatment option for poor-grade ruptured aneurysms. However, little is known about stent-assisted coiling of poor-grade aneurysms. Objective To compare the safety and efficacy of stent-assisted coiling with coiling alone for poor-grade aneurysms. Methods Using multicenter data on poor-grade aneurysms, we performed a retrospective analysis of 131 consecutive patients treated with endovascular coiling within 14 days after ictus. Patients were split into two groups: stent-assisted coiling and coiling alone. Baseline characteristics, immediate angiographic results, perioperat...

ConclusionWe present a single institutional experience with two flow diverting stents. There was no significant difference in neurological morbidity or mortality. There was a trend towards a higher rate of complete occlusion with the FRED device.There was no significant difference between the complication rates for the two groups, including ipsilateral ischemic stroke, ipsilateral ICH, aneurysm rupture and overall neurological morbidity and mortality.Abstract O-018 Table 2The complications associated with each deviceFREDICA> 10 mm(n = 10)ICA 10 mm (n = 3)ICA

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...
