Endovascular treatment of complex intracranial lesions often requires use of two different microcatheters or micro-guidewires. A basilar artery aneurysm was treated with microstent-assisted coiling. During the procedure a microwire severed and the distal platinum portion of the wire was left after unsuccessful attempts to retrieve it. The patient remains asymptomatic. The proximal part of the microwire was analyzed and additional experiments indicate that it may have detached by electrolytic corrosion.

    The endovascular treatment of very small aneurysms (lesions less than 3 mm in maximum diameter) with wide necks remains a challenge for saccular embolization. We retrospectively analyzed our data using Neuroform stent-assisted coiling for very small supraclinoid aneurysms with wide neck to...

    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...

    We describe a case of a ruptured basilar bifurcation aneurysm that thrombosed during preparation for endovascular therapy as a complication of diagnostic angiogaphy, and showed a favorable evolution during long-term follow-up. Endogenous thrombosis of ruptured, non giant aneurysms is uncommon....

    Although endovascular treatment has been proved to be as effective as surgical clipping in the prevention of rebleeding of ruptured aneurysm, early rebleeding after coil embolization has seldom been reported. We experienced early rehemorrhage in two patients of ruptured small anterior...

    Background: There has been little reported on the endovascular experience of basilar artery (BA) trunk aneurysms due to its low incidence. The purpose of this study is to report the results of endovascular treatment (EVT) of BA trunk aneurysms. Methods: Between 2004 and 2008, eight BA trunk...

    Object Treatment of complex intracranial aneurysms with Pipeline embolization device (PED) (ev3/Covidien Vascular Therapies) has gained recent popularity. One application of PEDs that is not well described in the literature is the utility and long-term safety in treatment of vertebrobasilar...

    Coil migration is a recognised but rare complication of endovascular coiling. Many techniques are available commercially for coil retrieval. We report the case of an acute subarachnoid hemorrhage in a 54-year-old woman in which a migrated coil was successfully retrieved using an X6 MERCI device.

    Segmental non-fusion of the basilar artery results from failed fusion of the neural arteries and from regression of the bridging arteries that connect the longitudinal arteries. This condition is associated with aneurysm formation in 7% of cases. Distally unfused arteries with associated...
