(World Neurosurgery, 2013-12-21)
Extracranial aneurysms of the distal posterior inferior cerebellar artery: Resection and primary reanastomosis as the preferred management approach
Background: Extracranial aneurysms of the posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) are rare, with only 22 reported cases in the English literature. For saccular extracranial distal PICA aneurysms not amenable to ...
Improving ventriculostomy management: risk and cost reduction through a multi-disciplinary approach
Object. Infection is a life-threatening complication of ventriculostomies. The purpose of this quality improvement project was to develop a cost-effective, evidence-based intervention to reduce ventriculostomy-associated ...
Flow Replacement Bypass for Aneurysms: Decision-Making Using Intraoperative Blood Flow Measurement
(Springer Wien, 2010-06)
Purpose: There is much debate regarding the optimal strategy for extracranial-intracranial (EC-IC) bypass for complex aneurysms. We introduce the concept of a flow replacement bypass which aims to compensate for loss of ...

Detection of Intracranial In-Stent Restenosis Using Quantitative Magnetic Resonance Angiography
(American Heart Association, 2010-10)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: In-stent restenosis (ISR) after angioplasty/stenting for intracranial stenosis has been reported in up to 25% to 30% of patients. Detection and monitoring of ISR relies primarily on serial catheter ...
Endovascular Approach and Technique for Treatment of TransverseSigmoid Dural Arteriovenous Fistula with Cortical Reflux: The Importance of Venous Sinus Sacrifice
(BMJ Publishing Group, 2012-10)
Introduction: Treatment of dural arteriovenous fistula involving the transverse‐igmoid region with cortical reflux is complex; treatment options may require s sacrifice of the fistulous segment of sinus. Methods: We ...
Quantitative Magnetic Resonance Venography is Correlated With Intravenous Pressures Before and After Venous Sinus Stenting: Implications for Treatment and Monitoring.
(Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2015-08)
BACKGROUND: Endovascular stenting is an effective treatment for patients with clinically significant cerebral venous sinus stenosis. Traditionally, stenting is indicated in elevated intravenous pressures on conventional ...
Combined preoperative onyx embolization and protective internal carotid artery covered stent placement for treatment of glomus vagale tumor: review of literature and illustrative case
(Maney Publishing, 2012-07)
Objective: Surgical resection of complex glomus vagale tumors can be complicated by extensive blood loss and might require surgical sacrifice of an encased internal carotid artery. Methods: A young patient presented with ...
CT Ventriculography for diagnosis of occult ventricular cysticerci
(Medknow Publications, 2010-12-23)
BACKGROUND: Neurocysticercosis is the most common parasitic infection of the central nervous system (CNS). Intraventricular lesions are seen in 7-20% of CNS cysticercosis. Intraventricular lesions can be missed by computed ...
