Multiple FD stents for treatment of large and giant aneurysms: is it really useful? Quantitative flow measurement after placing a flow diverter for a distal internal carotid artery aneurysm

Chen CW1, Wong HF2, Ye YL1, Chen YL3, Chen WL4, Ou CH5, Tsai YH1. Key points: As everyone knows the flow diverter stent (FDS) disrupts blood flow into the aneurysm sac, maintaining normal blood flow through the parent vessel; sometimes, there is a neointimal proliferation across the device strut, that contributes to the aneurysm closure.

Endovascular flow diversion for treatment of anterior communicating artery region cerebral aneurysms: a single-center cohort of 50 cases

Colby GP1, Bender MT1, Lin LM2, Beaty N1, Huang J1, Tamargo R1, Coon A1. Pubmed BACKGROUND: Flow diversion represents a novel but definitive treatment for recurrent and difficult-to-coil aneurysms of the anteriorcommunicating artery (ACoA) region, of which reports are limited. OBJECTIVE: To determine the effectiveness of the Pipeline embolization device (PED) in treating aneurysms in the Read more about Endovascular flow diversion for treatment of anterior communicating artery region cerebral aneurysms: a single-center cohort of 50 cases[…]
