Intrahepatic artery aneuryms are a rare and potentially life-threatening condition. We present the first case in the English literature of multiple intrahepatic artery aneuryms in a patient with Behçet's disease who presented acutely with rupture. The ruptured aneurysm was treated successfully with transcatheter arterial coil embolization-CT and clinical follow-up confirming ...

The Amplatzer Vascular Plug II (AVP II) is a novel device for transcatheter vessel occlusion, for which only limited comparative data exist. Embolotherapy of the gastroduodenal artery (GDA) is essential before internal radiotherapy (SIRT) in order to prevent radiation-induced peptic ulcerations due to migration of yttrium-90 microspheres. The purpose of ...

Rupture of a splenic artery aneurysm remains an uncommon cause of hypovolaemic shock in the emergency department. This case report highlights that rapid resuscitation, diagnostic imaging, surgical consultation and subsequent laparotomy remain the priorities in patient management.
Burns Joseph D - - 2009
The decision of whether and how to treat an unruptured intracranial aneurysm (UIA) is complex. The goal in caring for patients with UIAs is to maximize their duration of high-quality life by optimally balancing the risks of aneurysm rupture--the "natural history" of the aneurysm--with those of treatment-related adverse outcomes. In ...

A MicroNester coil (MNC) was developed from the Nester coil with a 0.018-in microcatheter. The most specific feature of the MNC is the extended length of 14 cm. Neurointervention involving the MNC was undertaken in 11 patients. Intervention procedures were transvenous embolization for a dural arteriovenous fistula in 4 patients, ...

BACKGROUND: Drainage of large amounts of shunt blood into deep veins via collaterals reduces resistance to venous outflow and decreases blood flow to the artery distal to the arterial anastomotic site, potentially resulting in steal syndrome. PURPOSE: To evaluate the effectiveness of transcatheter coil embolization for collateral veins of hemodialysis ...

Complex aortic dissections with subsequent dilatation may be managed by using a visceral hybrid approach. In some cases, however, there is substantial retrograde blood flow into the false lumen, leaving a pressurized aneurysmal segment. The authors describe a novel treatment method whereby successful seal of a distal type 1 endoleak ...

Airway management during anaesthesia for intracranial procedures has traditionally been by endotracheal intubation. We present three cases of radiological coiling of cerebral aneurysms during which a supraglottic airway device was used. This avoided the need for endotracheal intubation and the associated risks. We believe the use of a supraglottic airway ...

Yang Tzu Hsien - - 2008
Summary: Endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms by coiling has become an accepted alternative to surgical clipping (1). In cases of wide-necked and sidewall aneurysms, selective embolization is difficult because of the risk of coil protrusion into the parent vessel. The use of three-dimensional coils, stents (2), and balloon remodeling have ...

For patients with giant or dissecting aneurysm, multimodal treatment consisting extracranial-intracranial bypass surgery plus clip or coil for parent artery occlusion may be necessary. In this study, the safety and efficacy of multimodal treatment in 15 patients with complex aneurysms were evaluated retrospectively. From January 1995 to June 2007, the ...
Sprengers M E - - 2009
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Patients with intracranial aneurysms are at risk for future development of new aneurysms and growth of additional untreated aneurysms. Because in previous long-term studies duration of follow-up varied widely, the time interval after which screening could be effective remains largely unknown. The purpose of this study was ...
Whitlow C T - - 2009
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Novel stratagems to improve the efficacy of platinum coils in occluding cerebral aneurysms have primarily involved coating coils with materials thought likely to provoke more desirable histologic reactions. No investigations to date, however, have evaluated the utility of gold or vitronectin coatings, despite known endovascular histologic effects ...

Blood-blister-like aneurysms (BBAs) are rare but challenging to treat owing to their fragile, thin walls and poorly defined necks. Studies have shown many complications related to this type of aneurysm. In particularly, other authors have reported high rates of complications arising within a few weeks of BBAs treated with primary ...

Kwon S C - - 2008
Summary: Complications during coil embolization of cerebral aneurysms include thromboembolic events, hemorrhagic complications related to procedural aneurysmal rupture and parent vessel perforation, and coil-related complications. The present report describes a rare coil-related complication involving spontaneous coil knotting.
Leonardi M - - 2008
Summary: Coil embolization of intracranial aneurysms is the first choice treatment in many centres worldwide. The ISAT study reported in favour of endovascular treatment even though coil embolization carries a higher risk of revascularization than surgical clipping. Bioactive coils boosting fibrosis within the aneurysm and neointimal production could counteract the ...
