Preoperative embolization of intracranial hemangiopericytomas: case series and introduction of the transtumoral embolization technique.

Summary of "Preoperative embolization of intracranial hemangiopericytomas: case series and introduction of the transtumoral embolization technique."

Hemangiopericytomas (HPCs) are rare dural-based neoplasms. Preoperative embolization of these notoriously hypervascular tumors can be challenging as they often receive their dominant blood supply from pial feeders arising from the internal carotid artery (ICA) or vertebrobasilar (VB) circulation. This study reviews our historical experience with HPC embolization and introduces the transtumoral technique for backfilling pial tumor vasculature by delivering Onyx-18 through diminutive external carotid artery (ECA) feeders.

Clinical metric for differentiating intracranial hemangiopericytomas from meningiomas using diffusion weighted MRI.

Intracranial Hemangiopericytomas (IHP) are dural based tumors that frequently recur/metastasize. Unfortunately, their imaging appearance overlaps significantly with more benign meningiomas. We evaluat...

Evaluation of Radiological Features of the Posterior Communicating Artery and their Impact on Efficacy of Saccular Aneurysm Treatment with the Pipeline Embolization Device: A Case Series Study.

Posterior communicating artery segment aneurysms are one of the most frequent intracranial aneurysms. Currently, there is limited literature describing the use of the pipeline embolization device in t...

Re-recurrence of intracranial aneurysm with proximal vascular stenosis after primary clipping and secondary endovascular embolization: A case report and literature review.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A method of hemostasis utilizing various agents such as Gelfoam, silastic, metal, glass, or plastic pellets, autologous clot, fat, and muscle as emboli. It has been used in the treatment of spinal cord and INTRACRANIAL ARTERIOVENOUS MALFORMATIONS, renal arteriovenous fistulas, gastrointestinal bleeding, epistaxis, hypersplenism, certain highly vascular tumors, traumatic rupture of blood vessels, and control of operative hemorrhage.

Industrial chemicals which have become widespread environmental pollutants. Each aroclor is a mixture of chlorinated biphenyls (1200 series) or chlorinated terphenyls (5400 series) or a combination of both (4400 series).

A well-circumscribed mass composed of tuberculous granulation tissue that may occur in the cerebral hemispheres, cerebellum, brain stem, or perimeningeal spaces. Multiple lesions are quite common. Management of intracranial manifestations vary with lesion site. Intracranial tuberculomas may be associated with SEIZURES, focal neurologic deficits, and INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION. Spinal cord tuberculomas may be associated with localized or radicular pain, weakness, sensory loss, and incontinence. Tuberculomas may arise as OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS, but also occur in immunocompetent individuals.

Embolism or thrombosis involving blood vessels which supply intracranial structures. Emboli may originate from extracranial or intracranial sources. Thrombosis may occur in arterial or venous structures.

Abnormal outpouching in the wall of intracranial blood vessels. Most common are the saccular (berry) aneurysms located at branch points in CIRCLE OF WILLIS at the base of the brain. Vessel rupture results in SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Giant aneurysms (>2.5 cm in diameter) may compress adjacent structures, including the OCULOMOTOR NERVE.
