Cerebral Abscess Following Endovascular Treatment of Aneurysm: Report of Two Cases and Review of the Literature.

Summary of "Cerebral Abscess Following Endovascular Treatment of Aneurysm: Report of Two Cases and Review of the Literature."

Endovascular treatment is growing in popularity globally as an important treatment option for intracranial aneurysms. Cerebral infection as a complication of endovascular treatment of aneurysm is sufficiently rare that only six isolated cerebral abscess cases have been reported thus far.

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

It was known that a small number of patients could have intracranial aneurysm recurrences after either surgical clipping or endovascular embolization treatment. However, early recurrence within one mo...

Open and Endovascular Management of Aortic Aneurysms.

Aneurysmal disease can affect any segment of the aorta, from the aortic root to the aortic bifurcation. The treatment of aortic aneurysms has evolved dramatically in the past 3 decades, with the intro...

Evaluation of Effort and Time Efficiency of Surgical Theater's Surgery Rehearsal Platform (SRP) for Cerebral Aneurysm Clipping Surgery

Objectives: The objective of this clinical study is to determine if the use of the SRP will lead to improved effort and time efficiency in cerebral aneurysm surgery. For this preliminary s...

Follow-up of Endovascular Aneurysm Treatment - The FEAT Trial

After endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, life-long follow-up is needed to monitor the effectiveness of exclusion of the aneurysm sac from blood flow. For this reason, aneurysm ...

Use of Classic LMA During Endovascular Therapy

Background: Earlier treatment and resolution for patients with cerebral aneurysms is now possible due to earlier diagnosis. This observational study aims to evaluate the intraoperative car...

Dutch Randomised Endovascular Aneurysm Management (DREAM-) Trial

The purpose of this trial is to assess whether the new endovascular repair technique of the abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is an adequate substitute of the conventional AAA repair.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Postoperative hemorrhage from an endovascular AORTIC ANEURYSM repaired with endoluminal placement of stent grafts (BLOOD VESSEL PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION). It is associated with pressurization, expansion, and eventual rupture of the aneurysm.

Bleeding within the CEREBRAL VENTRICLES. It is associated with intraventricular trauma, aneurysm, vascular malformations, hypertension and in VERY LOW BIRTH WEIGHT infants.

Aneurysm due to growth of microorganisms in the arterial wall, or infection arising within preexisting arteriosclerotic aneurysms.

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.

Accumulation of purulent EXUDATES beneath the DIAPHRAGM, also known as upper abdominal abscess. It is usually associated with PERITONITIS or postoperative infections.
