Aneurysm re-rupture and bilateral fixed and dilated pupils (bFDPs) typically have a poor prognosis across all age groups. The synchronous occurrence of both these features in the infantile demographic has not been previously reported.

Aneurysm hemodynamics play an important role in aneurysm growth and subsequent rupture. Within the available hemodynamic characteristics, particle residence time (PRT) is relatively unexplored. Howeve...
Although unruptured intracranial aneurysms are increasingly being diagnosed incidentally, perioperative rupture risk of unruptured intracranial aneurysm in patients undergoing cardiovascular surgery r...
Spontaneous thrombosis of an intracranial aneurysm is rare, but is common in the fusiform or large cystic aneurysms that result in subarachnoid hemorrhage after rupture. This case reports a 47-year-ol...
Cardiac myxomas are benign cardiac neoplasms that can send a shower of emboli to cerebral arteries and cause cerebrovascular complications, including large, fusiform intracranial aneurysms. These aneu...
Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is an uncommon disease affecting patients. Considering ruptured intracranial aneurysms as the main cause of this disease and only a minority of the intracranial aneurysms...
Sub arachnoid hemorrhage consecutive to intracranial aneurysm rupture is a devastating disease. Predictors of intracranial aneurysm rupture are limited and focus mainly on size and locatio...
Intracranial aneurysm (localized dilatation in weakened blood vessel wall) rupture is a catastrophic disease, with half of the victims died and many of the survivors disabled. There is cur...
This is the first prospective study in Hong Kong that recruit patients with poor neurological status after intracranial aneurysm rupture in all seven public neurosurgical services in Hong ...
The first purpose of this study is to find out the clinical benefit and risk of oral aspirin for unruptured intracranial aneurysm (small than 7mm) combined with cerebral ischemia in patien...
This is a prospective observational registry, multicenter, with consecutive intent to treat to get safety and efficacy data on Neuroform3TM stent. The objectives of this study are: ...
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. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p841)
Bleeding into the intracranial or spinal SUBARACHNOID SPACE, most resulting from INTRACRANIAL ANEURYSM rupture. It can occur after traumatic injuries (SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE, TRAUMATIC). Clinical features include HEADACHE; NAUSEA; VOMITING, nuchal rigidity, variable neurological deficits and reduced mental status.
The tearing or bursting of the wall along any portion of the AORTA, such as thoracic or abdominal. It may result from the rupture of an aneurysm or it may be due to TRAUMA.
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.
Not an aneurysm but a well-defined collection of blood and CONNECTIVE TISSUE outside the wall of a blood vessel or the heart. It is the containment of a ruptured blood vessel or heart, such as sealing a rupture of the left ventricle. False aneurysm is formed by organized THROMBUS and HEMATOMA in surrounding tissue.
