Objective: Here, we aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of single-device flow diversion in patients with aneurysms measuring ≥15 mm in diameter.Methods: For this retrospective study, we extracted medical record data for patients with unruptured intracranial aneurysms, who underwent flow diversion, at the authors' institution between July 2014 and August 2019. The primary effectiveness outcome was defined as angiographic occlusion of the target aneurysm within 18 months without major (>50%) parent artery stenosis, major adverse events, or additional treatment.

Introduction: The prevalence of intracranial aneurysms, as well as the incidence of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) increase with age, and the elderly have poor outcomes after SAH. Age is a key factor in the unruptured intracranial aneurysm treatment score (UIATS), however, the sensitivity of the UIATS model in detecting risk of SAH among the elderly is unknown.Materials And Methods: We retrospectively analyzed 153 consecutive ruptured aneurysms between 2012 and 2018.

Background: Both coil embolization (CE) and flow-diverting device (FDD) placement are widely used for treatment of intracranial aneurysms (IAs). The aim of this meta-analysis is to compare the relative clinical safety and efficacy of FDD and CE for the treatment of unruptured IAs.Methods: The PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Library databases were searched for relevant studies from the date of inception through April 2020.

Diagnosis of cerebrovascular disease includes vascular neuroimaging techniques such as CT angiography, MR angiography (with or without use of contrast agents) and catheter digital subtraction angiography. These techniques provide mostly information about the vessel lumen. Vessel wall imaging with MR seeks to characterize cerebrovascular pathology, but with resolution that is often insufficient for small lesions. Read More

Background: This report addresses the feasibility of virtual injection software based on contrast-enhanced cone-beam CTs (CBCTs) in the context of cerebrovascular lesion embolization. Intracranial arteriovenous malformation (AVM), dural arteriovenous fistula (AVF) and mycotic aneurysm embolization cases with CBCTs performed between 2013 and 2020 were retrospectively reviewed. Cerebrovascular lesions were reviewed by 2 neurointerventionalists using a dedicated virtual injection software (EmboASSIST, GE Healthcare; Chicago, IL). Read More
