Objectives: We aimed to compare outcomes of patients with middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysms treated by either microsurgical clipping or endovascular therapy and provide a treatment algorithm based on available evidence.Materials And Methods: We performed a retrospective analysis of 77 patients with 95 MCA aneurysms. Demographic, clinical, and aneurysm morphological variables were collected. Read More

Parturients with unruptured intracranial aneurysms present a unique challenge to anesthesia practitioners due to confounding concerns related to cerebrovascular and obstetrical physiologic changes. This case report presents a term parturient with an unruptured basilar artery aneurysm that received spinal anesthesia without adverse maternal or fetal sequelae. This report describes risk factors for aneurysmal rupture and a comparison of neuraxial versus general anesthesia in a parturient with cerebrovascular pathology. Read More

Infective endocarditis (IE), is an infection of the endocardial surfaces of the heart, which primarily affects the valve leaflets, the mural endocardium, chordae tendinae and prosthetic valves among others. IE has various complications among which neurological complications include stroke, infected intracranial aneurysms, intracranial abscesses, meningitis, encephalopathy and seizures which could prove fatal if not treated on time. We report a case of a 17 year old girl, who was a known case of bacterial endocarditis that presented with sudden onset deterioration of mental status, fever and dizziness. Read More

Background: Unruptured Intracranial Aneurysms (UIAs) pose a significant risk of morbidity in the general population and much more so among sickle cell disease (SCD) patients. Meanwhile, the proportion of these patients with UIAs is not established just as the course and characteristics of the aneurysms are not well known.Aim: To estimate the prevalence, incidence and characteristics of UIAs in SCD patients and compare same with the metrics and features in the general population.
