    Endovascular treatment of ruptured vertebrobasilar artery aneurysms with Gugliemi detachable coils (GDC) has become an alternative to surgery. Mid-term angiographic follow-up can now be reported. Of 111 vertebrobasilar aneurysms in 110 patients we treated with GDC since 1992, 53 underwent...

    We propose the combined neurosurgical-endovascular treatment with the balloon occlusion of parent artery during surgery of giant paraclinoid and vertebrobasilar aneurysms, which are unsuitable for a pure endovascular or surgical approach. Between January 2003 and December 2007, we treated...

    Five cases of fusiform arteriosclerotic basilar artery aneurysm, two of which ruptured, are presented. Although the cases shared a few common manifestations, such as hypertension, brain stem damage, cranial nerve deficits, and hemiparesis. there was no particular diagnostic finding. Neurologic...

    We have reviewed initial diagnostic features, treatment, and outcome in 29 patients with acute subarachnoid hemorrhage due to non-traumatic vertebrobasilar artery dissection diagnosed in our hospital between 1993 and 2003. The dissections occurred in the vertebral artery in 19 patients, the...

    Background. Surgery of vertebral artery-posterior inferior cerebellar artery (VA-PICA) aneurysms is not easy because there is a close anatomical relationship between aneurysms and the surrounding neurovascular structures, and bony structures in the lateral foramen magnum. The preoperative...

    Over the past 15 years, coil embolization has emerged as an effective treatment option for cerebral aneurysms that is far less invasive than the long-standing convention of surgical clipping. However, aneurysm recurrence after coil embolization is not uncommon: recurrence rates as high as 50%...
