*  Abstract 14: Size Ratio can be a Strong Predictor for Future Rupture of the Unruptured Cerebral Aneurysms | Stroke
Introduction: Various factors have been nominated for the rupture of unruptured cerebral aneurysms including size, shape and specific locations of aneurysms. Size ratio, which is the quotient of maximum size of the aneurysm divided by the diameter of the adjacent parent artery, has also been nominated as a strong indicator to discriminate ruptured versus unruptured cerebral aneurysms. However, this has never been tested as a risk in the prospective cohort. In this paper, we have assimilated size ratio in cases of UCAS Japan using reported average parent arterial size and evaluated its value.. Methods: We used average main intracranial artery diameter reported in anatomical studies as follows: AComA: 1.5mm, MCA: 3.9mm, ICA: 4.3mm, PComA: 1.3mm, BA: 4.1mm and VA: 3.9mm. UCAS Japan cohort, which is a Japanese prospective cohort of unruptured cerebral aneurysms in Japan, were utilized (6,312 ...

Unruptured saccular intracranial aneurysms larger than 7 mm can be treated with endovascular occlusion using detachable coils, with or without expendable stent assistance. A new endovascular technique has recently been developed, using flow diverter stents without associated coils. Clinical results already published are encouraging but have to be confirmed. Furthermore, these medical devices are expensive in comparison to the coiling strategy. The purpose of this study is to compare the clinical efficacy, safety, and cost-effectiveness of endovascular coiling and endovascular flow diversion for unrupted saccular intracranial aneurysms ...

*  Plus it
Unruptured intracranial aneurysms are common and occurred in approximately 1%-2% of the population, as reviewed by Vlak et al.19 Because most unruptured intracranial aneurysms are asymptomatic and are found incidentally, treatment should be considered after balancing the natural history of the aneurysm with the risk posed by the treatment. Prospective data for the natural history of unruptured intracranial aneurysms by the International Study of Unruptured Intracranial Aneurysms and UCAS Japan investigators showed that the annual rupture rate increased for aneurysms that were ≥7 mm. The presence of a daughter sac and a history of SAH increased the rupture rate.5,7 In the Japanese cohort, the annual rupture rates for paraclinoid aneurysms were approximately 0.1%, 1%, and 10% when they were ,7 mm, 7-24 mm, and ,25 mm, ...

*  Abstract 3956: Outcomes of Patients Undergoing Endovascular Treatment for Mycotic Intracranial Aneurysms | Stroke
Background: Mycotic intracranial aneurysms are rare with primary treatment focusing on underlying infection to reduce the high mortality rates. Treating these aneurysms remains challenging and obliteration procedures without sacrificing the parent artery often fail due to the fusiform and fragile aneurysm wall.. Objective: To determine the outcomes associated with endovascular embolization in patients with mycotic intracranial aneurysms using a large nationally representative sample.. Methods: We determined the frequency of endovascular and surgical procedures performed in patients with mycotic intracranial aneurysms and associated in-hospital outcomes using data from the Nationwide Inpatient Survey (NIS) data files from 2002 to 2009. All the in-hospital outcomes were analyzed after adjusting for potential confounders using multivariate logistic regression analysis.. ...

*  Treatment of Cranial Internal Carotid Artery Aneurysm With Willis Covered Stent and Coil Embolization - Full Text View -...
Endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms with detachable coils has been widely used since the introduction of GDCs in 1991 and has been proven to be effective in preventing rebleeding after aneurysmal rupture. The clinical and angiographic results of endovascular coil occlusion of intracranial aneurysms are positive, with an initial and final overall complete occlusion rate of 35.9%-76.8% and 38.3%- 87.8%. In the mid- and long-term, however, aneurysm recanalization may occur in as many as one-third of cases.. The natural history of aneurysm recurrence after coil treatment is often benign, but bleeding from incompletely coiled aneurysms is a well-documented threat, moreover, the degree of aneurysm occlusion after treatment was strongly associated with risk of rerupture. Even if 100% occlusion of the aneurysms after the initial ...

*  Intraoperative microvascular Doppler in intracranial aneurysm surgery. | IRIS Università degli Studi di Padova
OBJECTIVE: The usefulness of intraoperative microvascular Doppler (IMD) in preventing an incorrect placement of the clip during intracranial aneurysm surgery is described. Such incorrect placement of the clip may cause new bleeding or ischemic accident as a consequence of incomplete exclusion of the aneurysm or stenosis/occlusion of the parent and/or adjacent arteries. METHODS: One hundred thirty patients, harboring 136 aneurysms, were operated on using IMD. IMD study was performed on the aneurysm and adjacent arterial vessels before and after the clip placement. Mechanical arterial spasm was treated by topical sodium nitroprusside (SNP) and its efficacy verified by IMD. RESULTS: In 55 aneurysms (42.3%), IMD was helpful in understanding the microvascular anatomy before clip placement. Complete exclusion resulted in 129 aneurysms (94.9%). In 5 cases (3.7%) in which IMD revealed a persistent ...

*  Stroke: Highlights of Selected Articles | Stroke
Patients with symptomatic intracranial aneurysms are frequently found to have additional aneurysms and may develop new aneurysms over time. LOTUS, long-term stability of coiled intracranial aneurysms, is a study in which MRA (3-D time of flight) was performed on patients in a large cohort with previously coiled aneurysms at 5 years follow-up. In 50 of 276 patients (18%), 75 additional aneurysms were found on follow-up MRA. The majority, 89%, of these additional aneurysms were unchanged, whereas only 5 had grown (from 1-3 mm) and only 2 were de novo (both 3 mm). The cumulative 5-year incidence of de novo aneurysm formation was 0.75%. The clinical implication of these findings from the MRA done at 5 years was that only 4 additional aneurysms in 3 patients were treated. The authors conclude that MRA screening of patients with ...

*  Isolated common femoral artery aneurysm: a case report | Cases Journal | Full Text
Primary femoral aneurysms are uncommon and are frequently associated with other aneurysms, particularly those of the aorta and popliteal arteries. True isolated atherosclerotic aneurysm of the superficial femoral artery is a rare pathology [2].. Rigdon et al discussed 17 "arteriosclerotic" superficial femoral artery aneurysms in 14 patients, which revealed complication at presentation in 65% - rupture in 35%, thrombosis in 18%, and distal emboli in 12%. However, limb salvage was 94% and there were no perioperative deaths [3]. Males (75%) were more common than females, and the average age was 77 years (range 61 to 93) [3].. True femoral artery aneurysms are attributed to weakening of the arterial wall due to atherosclerosis. True femoral artery aneurysms are relatively rare and are found in elderly men who have strong smoking history. Aortic aneurysms are approximately 10 times more common. ...

Popliteal aneurysms are the most common peripheral artery aneurysms, followed by femoral artery aneurysms. Patients with popliteal artery aneurysms have a 70% risk of concurrent abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). Similarly, patients with AAA have a 3.1% risk of popliteal aneurysm. Patients have bilateral popliteal artery aneurysms in 50-70% of cases [1]. Patients with popliteal artery aneurysms usually present with critical limb ischemia, resulting from aneurysm thrombosis. Rupture of the popliteal aneurysms is uncommon.. Femoral aneurysms are asymptomatic in 30-40% of patients at the time of initial presentation. Approximately one third of patients presents with local symptoms such as groin pain or groin mass. Of patients presenting with femoral aneurysms 10-65% have complications at the time of initial ...

*  Low pressure giant pulmonary artery aneurysms in the adult: natural history and management strategies | Heart
True pulmonary artery aneurysms are rare. Deterling and Clagett reported only eight cases in a review of 109 571 necropsies.2 Aggressive surgical approaches have often been advocated based on previous reports of dissection or rupture. Pulmonary artery aneurysms, even when very large, in the presence of low pulmonary pressures and the absence of left to right congenital or acquired shunts, may not pose such a risk in sharp contrast with those with pulmonary hypertension or Eisenmenger's syndrome.3,4 Patients in this series all had low pulmonary arterial pressures, no significant congenital or acquired left to right shunts, and giant pulmonary artery aneurysms involving the main or proximal branch pulmonary arteries. They survived to a median age of 52 years without evidence of intimal tear or medial dissection and presented because of right ventricular dysfunction secondary to pulmonary regurgitation.. True aneurysms involve all components of ...

True isolated atherosclerotic aneurysm of the superficial femoral artery is a rare patology. We report a case of ruptured superficial femoral artery aneurysms (SFAA) not associated with aortic, common femoral or popliteal artery aneurysms. An emergency surgical procedure was performed and, after endoaneurysmal branches ligation, a ePTFE graft interposition was performed. The litterature review shows a prevalence of rupture as compared with ischemic complications and the need for surgical repair in case of SFAA with diameter twice the normal vessel size. Early diagnosis and management are recommended because of the lower morbility and mortality rates associated with elective surgery by comparison with emergency procedures. ...
