Flow disruption is a new endovascular approach for treatment of both ruptured and unruptured intracranial aneurysms, which involves placement of an endosaccular device (WEB) which modifies the blood flow at the level of the neck and induces intraaneurysmal thrombosis. The WEB was designed to treat wide-neck bifurcation aneurysms. This observational study will collect data about the routine practice in one center of using the WEB in ruptured and unruptured intracranial aneurysms. The primary objective is to evaluate its efficacy by assessing the anatomic outcome during follow-up.

During the last decade, the embolization has become the treatment of choice for ruptured intracranial aneurysms, to improve the neurological outcome of patients. At the same time, for his ...
Ruptured intracranial aneurysms is currently a common disease that seriously affects human health and quality of life due to its high morbidity,high mortality and high disability. At prese...
An observational non-randomized, multi-center, prospective assessment of the clinical utility of the WEB Aneurysm Embolization System in subjects with ruptured intracranial aneurysms deeme...
This is a prospective, multicenter, observational study, aiming at comparing the Safety and effectiveness among the different surgical treatment of unruptured intracranial aneurysms in Chi...
In selected cases, embolization can be indicated for very small unruptured intracranial aneurysms. Previous studies reported high intraprocedural rupture rates. Recent improvements of endovascular dev...
The pathogenesis of intracranial aneurysm rupture remains unclear. Because it is difficult to study the time course of human aneurysms and most unruptured aneurysms are stable, animal models are used ...
Although unruptured intracranial aneurysms are increasingly being diagnosed incidentally, perioperative rupture risk of unruptured intracranial aneurysm in patients undergoing cardiovascular surgery r...
OBJECTIVECerebral infarction is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality related to microsurgical clipping of intracranial aneurysms. The objective of this study was to determine the impact of a...
OBJECTIVEDegenerative cerebral aneurysm walls are associated with aneurysm rupture and subarachnoid hemorrhage. Thin-walled regions (TWRs) represent fragile areas that may eventually lead to aneurysm ...
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)
A localized bulging or dilatation in the muscle wall of a heart (MYOCARDIUM), usually in the LEFT VENTRICLE. Blood-filled aneurysms are dangerous because they may burst. Fibrous aneurysms interfere with the heart function through the loss of contractility. True aneurysm is bound by the vessel wall or cardiac wall. False aneurysms are HEMATOMA caused by myocardial rupture.
The tearing or bursting of the weakened wall of the aneurysmal sac, usually heralded by sudden worsening pain. The great danger of a ruptured aneurysm is the large amount of blood spilling into the surrounding tissues and cavities, causing HEMORRHAGIC SHOCK.
Aneurysm due to growth of microorganisms in the arterial wall, or infection arising within preexisting arteriosclerotic aneurysms.
Aneurysm of the MICROVASCULATURE. Charcot–Bouchard aneurysms are aneurysms of the brain vasculature which is a common cause of CEREBRAL HEMORRHAGE. Retinal microaneurysm is an early diagnostic sign of DIABETIC RETINOPATHY.
