Wall enhancement ratio determined by vessel wall MRI associated with symptomatic intracranial aneurysms.

Eur J Radiol 2019 Mar 15;112:88-92. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Department of Radiology, Xinqiao Hospital, Third Military Medical University, Chongqing 400037, China. Electronic address:

Purpose: To study the association of the enhancement ratio (ER) of aneurysmal wall enhancement (AWE) with symptomatic intracranial aneurysms (IAs), we hypothesized that the ER of AWE would be stronger in symptomatic IAs than in asymptomatic IAs, as assessed by high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging (HRMRI).

Materials And Methods: Between February 2016 and February 2018, 80 consecutive patients with 89 unruptured IAs were reviewed. Patients and IAs were divided into symptomatic and asymptomatic groups. Read More

Intra-arterial dantrolene for refractory cerebral vasospasm in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage.

World Neurosurg 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Department of Neurology, University of Missouri Hospital and Clinics, Columbia, Missouri, USA.

Indocyanine Green and Contrast-enhanced Ultrasound videoangiography: a synergistic approach for real time verification of distal revascularization and aneurysm occlusion in a complex distal middle cerebral artery aneurysm.

World Neurosurg 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Oncological Neurosurgery Unit, Department of Neurosurgery, Fondazione IRCCS Istituto Neurologico Carlo Besta, Milan, Italy; Department of Pathophysiology and Transplantation, Università degli Studi di Milano, Milan, Italy.

Background: Distal outflow occlusion and extracranial-intracranial bypass represent a possible option for the surgical management of complex middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysm. A limitation of distal clipping strategy combined to bypass relies on the difficulties in predicting intraoperatively the good blood flow supply to the brain territory distal to the aneurysm and the extent and speed of aneurysmal thrombosis.

Methods: The authors presented an innovative approach in which Contrast-enhanced US (CEUS) and indocyanine green video-angiography (ICG-VA) have been synergistically used to study the effect of distal clipping on the aneurysm flow and the parenchymal blood flow after the bypass. Read More

World Neurosurg 2019 Feb 7. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Department of Neurosurgery, Stanford University, 300 Pasteur Drive, Stanford, California, 94305, U.S.A.

Magnetic particle imaging (MPI) is a novel radiation-free tomographic imaging method that provides a background-free, signal attenuation-free, direct quantification of the spatial distribution of superparamagnetic iron-oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) with high temporal resolution (milliseconds), high spatial resolution (< 1 mm), and extreme sensitivity (μmol). The technique is based on non-linear magnetization of the SPIONs when exposed to an oscillating magnetic field. MPI was first described in 2001. Read More

Two Diverse Hemodynamic Forces, a Mechanical Stretch and a High Wall Shear Stress, Determine Intracranial Aneurysm Formation.

Transl Stroke Res 2019 Feb 8. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

Department of Molecular Pharmacology, Research Institute, National Cerebral and Cardiovascular Center, 5-7-1 Fujishiro-dai, Suita, Osaka, 565-8565, Japan.

Intracranial aneurysm (IA) usually induced at a bifurcation site of intracranial arteries causes a lethal subarachnoid hemorrhage. Currently, IA is considered as a macrophage-mediated inflammatory disease triggered by a high wall shear stress (WSS) on endothelial cells. However, considered the fact that a high WSS can be observed at every bifurcation site, some other factors are required to develop IAs. Read More

Periprocedural Neuroendovascular Antiplatelet Strategies for Thrombosis Prevention in Clopidogrel-Hyporesponsive Patients.

Pharmacotherapy 2019 Feb 5. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, VA, USA.

Patients undergoing neuroendovascular procedures such as cerebral aneurysm coiling and intracranial stent deployment are frequently treated with antiplatelet agents to prevent thrombotic complications. The combination of aspirin and a P2Y12 inhibitor such as clopidogrel is often initiated days prior to elective procedures or as loading doses for emergent procedures; however, some patients may still experience thrombotic complications. Patients identified as clopidogrel hyporesponders are more likely to experience poor outcomes and may require changes to their regimens. Read More

Thrombogenicity assessment of Pipeline, Pipeline Shield, Derivo and P64 flow diverters in an in vitro pulsatile flow human blood loop model.

eNeurologicalSci 2019 Mar 8;14:77-84. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

Medtronic Core Technologies, Minneapolis, MN, United States.

Flow diversion is a disruptive technology for the treatment of intracranial aneurysms. However, these intraluminal devices pose a risk for thromboembolic complications despite dual antiplatelet therapy. We report the thrombogenic potential of the following flow diversion devices measured experimentally in a novel human blood in-vitro pulsatile flow loop model: Pipeline™ Flex Embolization Device (Pipeline), Pipeline™ Flex Embolization Device with Shield Technology™ (Pipeline Shield), Derivo Embolization Device (Derivo), and P64 Flow Modulation Device (P64).

Neurosurgery, Advocate Christ Medical Center, Oak Lawn, USA.

Traumatic intracranial aneurysms are rare lesions that occur after blunt or primarily penetrating mechanisms. These are extremely fragile vessel injuries associated with significant morbidity and mortality, especially after rupture. Disease natural history, surveillance strategies, and management are based on small case series. Read More

Differences in hemodynamic characteristics under high packing density between the porous media model and finite element analysis in computational fluid dynamics of intracranial aneurysm virtual treatment.

J Neurointerv Surg 2019 Feb 4. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

Department of Radiology, Huashan Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University, Shanghai, China.

Objective: This study aimed to compare the hemodynamic differences among no sac (NOS), porous media (POM) and finite element analysis (FEA) models to investigate the recurrence-related risks for coiled intracranial aneurysms (IAs).

Methods: The study enrolled 10 patients with 11 IAs who received simple coiling treatment and hemodynamic simulations were performed for all IAs using the above three models. Velocity, wall shear stress (WSS) and residual flow volume (RFV) were calculated and compared in order to assess the model differences for both aneurysm sac and parent vessel regions. Read More

Internal maxillary artery bypass for the treatment of complex middle cerebral artery aneurysms.

Neurosurg Focus 2019 Feb;46(2):E10

1Department of Neurosurgery, SanBo Brain Hospital, Capital Medical University, Beijing, China.

OBJECTIVEThe rapid innovation of the endovascular armamentarium results in a decreased number of indications for a classic surgical approach. However, a middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysm remains the best example of one for which results have favored microsurgery over endovascular intervention. In this study, the authors aimed to evaluate the experience and efficacy regarding surgical outcomes after applying internal maxillary artery (IMA) bypass for complex MCA aneurysms (CMCAAs).

National trends in cerebral bypass surgery in the United States, 2002-2014.

Neurosurg Focus 2019 Feb;46(2):E4

1Department of Neurological Surgery, University of California, San Francisco, California; and.

OBJECTIVECerebral bypass procedures are microsurgical techniques to augment or restore cerebral blood flow when treating a number of brain vascular diseases including moyamoya disease, occlusive vascular disease, and cerebral aneurysms. With advances in endovascular therapy and evolving evidence-based guidelines, it has been suggested that cerebral bypass procedures are in a state of decline. Here, the authors characterize the national trends in cerebral bypass surgery in the United States from 2002 to 2014. Read More

National trends in cerebral bypass for unruptured intracranial aneurysms: a National (Nationwide) Inpatient Sample analysis of 1998-2015.

Neurosurg Focus 2019 Feb;46(2):E15

OBJECTIVEThe development and recent widespread dissemination of flow diverters may have reduced the utilization of surgical bypass procedures to treat complex or giant unruptured intracranial aneurysms (UIAs). The aim of this retrospective cohort study was to observe trends in cerebral revascularization procedures for UIAs in the United States before and after the introduction of flow diverters by using the National (Nationwide) Inpatient Sample (NIS).METHODSThe authors extracted data from the NIS database for the years 1998-2015 using the ICD-9/10 diagnostic and procedure codes.
