The Role of Hemodynamics through the Circle of Willis in the Development of Intracranial Aneurysm: A Systematic Review of Numerical Models.

J Pers Med 2022 Jun 20;12(6). Epub 2022 Jun 20.

Department of Neurosurgery, University Medical Center Groningen, University of Groningen, 9713 GZ Groningen, The Netherlands.

The role of regional hemodynamics in the intracranial aneurysmal formation, growth, and rupture has been widely discussed based on numerical models over the past decades. Variation of the circle of Willis (CoW), which results in hemodynamic changes, is associated with the aneurysmal formation and rupture. However, such correlation has not been further clarified yet.

Excessive platelet inhibition following Pipeline embolization of intracranial aneurysms.

J Neurointerv Surg 2022 Jun 21. Epub 2022 Jun 21.

Diagnostic Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

Background: High levels of platelet inhibition have been associated with hemorrhagic complications following Pipeline embolization of intracranial aneurysms. We therefore titrate clopidogrel dosing to maintain a moderate level of platelet inhibition using the VerifyNow P2Y12 assay. However, many patients demonstrate dramatic increases in platelet inhibition following treatment despite being on a consistent antiplatelet regimen. Read More

Improving visualization of three-dimensional aneurysm features via segmentation with upsampled resolution and gradient enhancement (SURGE).

J Neurointerv Surg 2022 Jun 21. Epub 2022 Jun 21.

Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Background: Intracranial aneurysm neck width tends to be overestimated when measured with three-dimensional rotational angiography (3DRA) compared with two-dimensional digital subtraction angiography (2D-DSA), owing to high curvature at the neck. This may affect morphological and hemodynamic analysis in support of treatment planning. We present and validate a method for extracting high curvature features, such as aneurysm ostia, during segmentation of 3DRA images. Read More

Sex Hormones and Risk of Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage: A Mendelian Randomization Study.

Stroke 2022 Jun 2:101161STROKEAHA121038035. Epub 2022 Jun 2.

Department of Neurosurgery (R.M., M.W.A., J.M.C.v.D.), University of Groningen, University Medical Center Groningen, the Netherlands.

Background: The risk of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) is increased in postmenopausal women compared with men of similar age, suggesting a role for sex hormones. We aimed to explore whether sex hormones, and age at menarche/menopause have a causal effect on aSAH risk by conducting a 2-sample MR study (Mendelian randomization).

Methods: We obtained sex-specific genetic instruments for serum estradiol, bioavailable testosterone (BioT), SHBG (sex hormone-binding globulin), and age at menarche/menopause from genome-wide association studies. Read More
