Paraclinoid ANeurysm Prospectively Driven ObseRvational Analysis (PANDORA) Study

2015-09-18 04:08:23 | BioPortfolio


The optimal consensus concerning treatment of incidental small paraclinoid unruptured intracranial aneurysms (UIAs) remains controversial. The aim of this prospective study is to reveal the natural history of small paraclinoid UIAs with the goal of informing the treatment plan.


A prospective observational study will be conducted in 13 Korean centers enrolling a consecutive series of 645 patients with small paraclinoid unruptured intracranial aneurysms (UIAs) from 2015 to 2017.

The investigators defined the cohort population as adults(20 years old or more) with small (less than 5mm) unruptured paraclinoid aneurysm. To determine the growth rate and risk factors, the angiographic features based on MRA(ex) size, arterial relationship, multiplicity)and the clinical characteristics (ex) age, hypertension (HTN), diabetes mellitus(DM), Hyperlipidemia, smoking) are recorded at initial visit, 1 year, 2years, 3years, and 5years.

The cumulative risk and the risk factors of aneurysmal rupture and growth will be analysed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The splitting of the vessel wall in one or both (left and right) internal carotid arteries (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL). Interstitial hemorrhage into the media of the vessel wall can lead to occlusion of the internal carotid artery and aneurysm formation.

Damages to the CAROTID ARTERIES caused either by blunt force or penetrating trauma, such as CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; THORACIC INJURIES; and NECK INJURIES. Damaged carotid arteries can lead to CAROTID ARTERY THROMBOSIS; CAROTID-CAVERNOUS SINUS FISTULA; pseudoaneurysm formation; and INTERNAL CAROTID ARTERY DISSECTION. (From Am J Forensic Med Pathol 1997, 18:251; J Trauma 1994, 37:473)

Pathological conditions involving the CAROTID ARTERIES, including the common, internal, and external carotid arteries. ATHEROSCLEROSIS and TRAUMA are relatively frequent causes of carotid artery pathology.

The two principal arteries supplying the structures of the head and neck. They ascend in the neck, one on each side, and at the level of the upper border of the thyroid cartilage, each divides into two branches, the external (CAROTID ARTERY, EXTERNAL) and internal (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL) carotid arteries.

Either of the two principal arteries on both sides of the neck that supply blood to the head and neck; each divides into two branches, the internal carotid artery and the external carotid artery.
