  • A retrospective study was made of ten patients who were treated by coil embolization of posterior communicating artery aneurysm caused. (ebscohost.com)
  • The purposes of this study are to identify possible genes that may increase the risk of aneurysm development in the brain, and to determine the effect of environmental factors such as cigarette smoking and high blood pressure on the expression of these genes. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The Familial Intracranial Aneurysm Study is a collaborative research effort of neurologists and neurosurgeons throughout the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand to identify possible genes that may increase the risk of stroke, and particularly, the development of aneurysms in the blood vessels of the brain. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • This study will involve 475 families with multiple affected family members, and will also determine the effect of environmental factors such as cigarette smoking and high blood pressure on the expression of the genes.A group of physicians from throughout North America, Australia and New Zealand have formed a collaborative effect to identify genes that may be important in the development of aneurysms in the blood vessels of the brain.

  • This study of affected individuals and families, known as the Familial Intracranial Aneurysm (FIA) study, is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and has involved over 475 families. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • To be eligible to participate in this study, families must have two or more affected pairs of siblings (brothers/sisters) or 3 or more family members affected with intracranial aneurysms. (clinicaltrials.gov)

  • The PED is a flexible, braided wire mesh tube which can be placed within the internal carotid artery in the brain, blocking off large or wide-necked aneurysms. (healthcanal.com)
  • The Pipeline┬« Embolization Device offers neurointerventional surgeons a minimally invasive alternative to open surgery or placement of materials such as coils or a liquid embolic when treating carotid artery brain aneurysms," said Avi Setton, MD , chief of interventional neuroradiology at North Shore University Hospital.
