In  vitro angiographic comparison of the flow-diversion performance of five neurovascular stents.
Conclusions Based on this specific set of experiments, lower-porosity flow diverters perform significantly better in reducing intra-aneurysmal flow activity than higher-porosity stents in sidewall-type geometries. The LVIS device is potentially a better flow diverter than the Neuroform and Enterprise devices, while the Pipeline is potentially better than the FRED.

Recurrent posterior circulation infarcts secondary to vertebral artery external compression treated with endovascular deconstruction.
We present a case of a patient who presented with recurrent posterior circulation infarcts despite optimized medical management. On imaging, he was found to have external anatomical vertebral artery muscular and/or osseous compression leading to repetitive vascular injury and strokes. Recurrent intimal injury and vertebral artery to intracranial emboli despite anticoagulation and subsequent dual antiplatelet therapy necessitated definitive operative management. Surgical bypass, external surgical decompression, reconstructive endovascular, and deconstructive endovascular techniques were carefully considered. A deconstructiv...

Patient selection for mechanical thrombectomy in posterior circulation emergent large-vessel occlusion.
We present our triage algorithm used to select patients for endovascular therapy (EVT) in the setting of pc-ELVOS. We use a consecutive retrospective database from 2004 to 2016 to describe the practice patterns and prognostic factors for pc-ELVO patients treated using both medical and EVT. Patients with moderate to severe deficits (NIHSS > 10) did better when they received EVT ( p  10), most of whom subsequently received EVT (9 of 12), with 56% favorable outcomes. Cerebellar and brainstem infarct volumes were independent imaging predictors of outcome. These results can be used to define triag...

Acute rerupture after coil embolization of ruptured intracranial saccular aneurysms: A literature review.
Authors: Li K, Guo Y, Zhao Y, Xu B, Xu K, Yu J Abstract Acute rerupture after coil embolization is defined as rerupture within three days after treatment; its prognosis is worse than that of rebleeding at other time periods. However, to date, little is known about complications during the acute phase. Therefore, we used the PubMed database to perform a review of acute rerupture after coil embolization of ruptured intracranial saccular aneurysms and increase our understanding. After reviewing the complications, we found that the cause of acute rerupture is unclear, but the following risk factors are involved: incomp...

Intracranial contrast transit times on digital subtraction angiography decrease more in patients with delayed intraparenchymal hemorrhage after Pipeline.
Authors: Brunozzi D, Shakur SF, Charbel FT, Alaraj A Abstract Background Pipeline embolization devices (PEDs) are used for endovascular treatment of cerebral aneurysms but can be associated with delayed ipsilateral intraparenchymal hemorrhage (DIPH). Changes in intracranial hemodynamics after PED are poorly understood. Objective Here, we assess hemodynamic changes after PED in patients and compare these changes in patients with and without DIPH (DIPH+ and DIPH-). Methods Records of patients with distal internal carotid artery (ICA) aneurysms treated with PED at our institution between 2012 and 2017 were retrospecti...

Management of a rare case of posterior condylar canal dural arteriovenous fistula presenting with subarachnoid haemorrhage: A case report and review of literature.
We describe the clinical presentation, imaging, and endovascular management of an elderly man with left PCC dAVF presenting with subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH). Endovascular management of such cases requires thorough understanding of the vascular anatomy around the craniovertebral junction (CVJ) and variable bridging vein draining patterns. The fistula in our case was fed by the posterior meningeal branch of the left vertebral artery and was draining through a dilated and tortuous medullary bridging vein into the antero-lateral pontomedullary venous system. Transarterial glue embolisation was performed with complete exclus...

Evaluation for shunted pouches of cavernous sinus dural arteriovenous fistula and the treatment outcome of transvenous embolization.
Conclusions Rotational angiography data suggested that the shunted pouches of CSDAVFs were mostly located in the posterior compartment of the CS connected with the intercavernous sinus. Selective embolization for CSDAVFs with a single shunted pouch is the first-line treatment alternative to sinus packing, and selective embolization with multiple shunted pouches will be a considerable treatment option.

Limit of intraoperative near-infrared spectroscopy monitoring during endovascular thrombectomy in acute ischemic stroke.
Authors: Hiramatsu R, Furuse M, Yagi R, Ohnishi H, Ikeda N, Nonoguchi N, Kawabata S, Miyachi S, Kuroiwa T Abstract Endovascular thrombectomy is recommended for a persistent ischemic penumbra if recanalization cannot be achieved by the intravenous (IV) administration of recombinant tissue-plasminogen activator (rt-PA) alone. Although endovascular thrombectomy is a powerful treatment for major cerebral artery occlusion, the monitoring of recanalization and reperfusion during acute ischemic stroke presents a therapeutic challenge, and a previous study reported the usefulness of near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) for in...

Radiofrequency ablation of osteoid osteoma in the atlas: A case report.
Authors: Yang J, Li W, Yin Y, Li Z, Ni C Abstract Osteoid osteoma of the atlas has previously been reported very rarely in the published literature. The traditional standard treatment has been a surgical resection of the nidus. Recently, computed tomography (CT)-guided radiofrequency ablation (RFA) has gained favor as a more precise alternative treatment. Here, we present a case of osteoid osteoma of the C1 lateral mass treated successfully using CT-guided RFA. A 30-year-old woman who presented with a four-month history of occipital and suboccipital pain was treated by CT-guided RFA. The visual analog scale (VAS) a...

Utility of bulging technique for endovascular treatment of small and wide-necked aneurysms with a Low-profile Visualized Intraluminal Support (LVIS Jr.) device: A case report and review of the literature.
We report here a patient with a small and wide-necked ruptured basilar artery (BA) top aneurysm, in whom successful treatment was achieved by stent-assisted coiling with LVIS Jr. using the bulging technique. A 74-year-old woman with moderate hypertension consulted for treatment of subarachnoid hemorrhage with a ruptured BA top aneurysm measuring 2.7 mm in height with a 4.3 mm neck. We initially tried emergency balloon-assisted coiling, but coiling proved difficult. We therefore performed stent-assisted coiling with LVIS Jr. using the bulging technique. The postoperative course was uneventful, with no aggravat...

Improving mechanical thrombectomy time metrics in the angiography suite: Stroke cart, parallel workflows, and conscious sedation.
Authors: Settecase F, McCoy DB, Darflinger R, Alexander MD, Cooke DL, Dowd CF, Hetts SW, Higashida RT, Halbach VV, Amans MR Abstract Purpose Earlier reperfusion of large-vessel occlusion (LVO) stroke improves functional outcomes. We hypothesize that use of a stroke cart in the angiography suite, containing all commonly used procedural equipment in a mechanical thrombectomy, combined with parallel staff workflows, and use of conscious sedation when possible, improve mechanical thrombectomy time metrics. Methods We identified 47 consecutive LVO patients who underwent mechanical thrombectomy at our center, retrospecti...

Thromboembolic complications during endovascular treatment of ruptured cerebral aneurysms.
Conclusion Administrations of heparin and antiplatelet drugs should be performed appropriately during procedures, and close observation of the arterial condition on angiography is necessary. Once thromboembolism occurs during the endovascular embolization of ruptured cerebral aneurysms, adequate heparinization, and antiplatelet therapy should first be performed.
