Metal allergies affect a significant portion of the population; intracranial flow diverters contain many of the most commonly allergenic metals. Prior literature has suggested patch testing for all patients with documented or suspected metal allergies prior to intracranial flow diverter placement, however there remains a paucity of reports of patients with documented metal allergies undergoing intracranial flow diversion.

The Pipeline Embolization Device (PED) has expanded the range of aneurysms amenable to endovascular treatment, including some that were previously untreatable. The PED contains several metals, includi...
Endothelial cell coverage along the Pipeline embolization device (PED) is one of two primary proposed mechanisms of action of the device, along with induction of intra-aneurysmal thrombosis. The tempo...
Endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms with endoluminal flow diverters (single or multiple) has proven to be clinically safe and effective, but is associated with a risk of thromboembolic co...
Pediatric patients increasingly report allergies, including allergies to food and medications. We sought to determine the incidence and, nature of parent-reported allergies in children presenting for ...
Open technique for elective repair of iliac artery aneurysms can be safely performed with good outcomes but not inconsequential morbidity. An endovascular approach has been shown to have both periproc...
The former Nickel Directive was introduced in EU in 1994 limiting the release of nickel from items intended for prolonged contact with skin. The nickel regulation entered into full force i...
This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with either a Patent Foramen Ovale [PFO] or an Atrial Septal Defect [ASD]. These are a type of hole located in the wall that separates t...
There is little evidence on the effect of a nickel-free diet on gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). We hope to determine if a nickel-free diet improves GERD symptoms in patients with a...
This is a prospective, single-arm, multi-center post-market observational study assessing the performance of the Pipeline™ Flex Embolization Device with Shield Technology™ in subjects ...
Pipeline TM embolization device launched to China in 2014, and has been widely used to treat large width IA. Therefore, it is necessary to collect and analysis the clinical data to evaluat...
Specific alloys not less than 85% chromium and nickel or cobalt, with traces of either nickel or cobalt, molybdenum, and other substances. They are used in partial dentures, orthopedic implants, etc.
Endovascular procedure in which atheromatous plaque is excised by a cutting or rotating catheter. It differs from balloon and laser angioplasty procedures which enlarge vessels by dilation but frequently do not remove much plaque. If the plaque is removed by surgical excision under general anesthesia rather than by an endovascular procedure through a catheter, it is called ENDARTERECTOMY.
Removal of a MEDICAL DEVICE from the market due to the identification of an intrinsic property of the device that results in a serious risk to public health.
Device designed to wear externally to support muscular skeletal system in various movements such as RANGE OF MOTIONS; WEIGHT-BEARING; GAIT; and LOCOMOTION.
Removal of a MEDICAL DEVICE from the market due to a problem occurring in the manufacture or distribution of the product.
The term allergy is used to describe a response, within the body, to a substance, which is not necessarily harmful in itself, but results in an immune response and a reaction that causes symptoms and disease in a predisposed person, which in turn can cau...
