Horizontal stent deployment via extracranial-intracranial bypass in coil embolization of basilar apex aneurysms: technical report.

Acta Neurochir (Wien) 2022 May 24;164(5):1281-1285. Epub 2021 Nov 24.

Department of Neurosurgery, Tokyo Women's Medical University, Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan.

Background: The endovascular treatment of large, wide-necked basilar apex aneurysms (BAAs) remains challenging. Although horizontal stent deployment across both P1 segments of the posterior cerebral arteries (PCAs) would be an optimal strategy in coil embolization of wide-necked BAAs, this is only feasible in cases with anatomically favorable access. In rare circumstances, large-diameter conduits of extracranial-intracranial (EC-IC) bypass can also provide a good access route for endovascular treatment of complex intracranial aneurysms.

Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of Kentucky College of Medicine, Lexington, KY. Electronic address:

Introduction: Current practice patterns favor endovascular treatment, resulting in fewer open procedures. When needed, greater saphenous vein and/or prosthetic conduits are considered the first choice for open vascular bypass. However, there is a cohort of patients in which these conduits are either not available or not suitable to address the surgical requirements. Read More

Case report of superficial femoral artery and popliteal artery aneurysm repair using brachial vein.

Vascular 2022 Jun 29;30(3):599-602. Epub 2021 May 29.

Vascular Institute of New York, Brooklyn, NY, USA.

Background: Several veins have been well-recognized as acceptable conduits for infrainguinal bypass surgery when the ipsilateral greater saphenous vein is unavailable. However, there is a paucity of literature describing the brachial vein as an adequate alternative. In the absence of other viable autogenous conduits, we describe the use of a brachial vein as a successful alternative for lower extremity revascularization. Read More
