Endovascular Therapy for Ruptured Cerebral Aneurysms in the Elderly( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : BACKGROUND: Endovascular therapy is favored for ruptured intracranial aneurysms in the elderly. However, poor accessibility to the aneurysm through the parent artery and use of local anesthesia in this age group may predispose to intraprocedural complications. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate whether age-related poor access to the ruptured target aneurysm and use of local anesthesia are associated with increased incidence of procedure-related rupture during endovascular embolization. METHODS: A total of 117 patients with 117 ruptured aneurysms underwent endovascular embolization at a single institution. Correlation of increasing age with poor accessibility of the guiding catheter was analyzed. In addition, the distance from the aneurysm to the guiding catheter was investigated to identify an association with incidence of procedure-related rupture. Correlation of local anesthesia with procedure-related rupture was also evaluated in the multivariable analysis. RESULTS: Increasing age was significantly associated with poor accessibility of the guiding catheter (P = .001, Mann-Whitney U test). Procedure-related rupture occurred in 9 of 117 aneurysms (7.7%). Longer distance between distal aneurysms and low-positioned guiding catheters carried a higher risk of procedure-related rupture than a shorter distance between proximal aneurysms and high-positioned guiding catheters (odds ratio, 19.3; 95% confidence interval, 1.84-201; P = .01, multivariable analysis). Use of local anesthesia was also a significant risk factor of procedure-related rupture by multivariable analysis. CONCLUSION: Increasing age was correlated with poor accessibility of the guiding catheter in endovascular embolization of ruptured intracranial aneurysms. Distally located aneurysms treated through a low-positioned guiding catheter and use of local anesthesia increased the risk of procedure-related rupture.

Independent Predictors for Recurrence of Chronic Subdural Hematoma: A Review of 343 Consecutive Surgical Cases( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract OBJECTIVE Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is a common form of intracranial hemorrhage with a substantial recurrence rate. We focused on determining independent predictors associated with the recurrence of CSDH. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 343 consecutive surgical cases of CSDH. Univariate and multivariate analyses were performed to describe the relationships between recurrence of CSDH and factors such as sex, age, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, atrial fibrillation, antiplatelet or anticoagulant therapy, and bilateral CSDH. RESULTS Sixty-one patients experienced a recurrence of CSDH. Univariate and multivariate analyses found that bilateral CSDH was an independent risk factor for the recurrence of CSDH. Although antiplatelet and anticoagulant therapy had no significant effect on recurrence of CSDH, the time interval between the injury and the first operation for patients with antiplatelet and/or anticoagulant therapy was shorter than that for patients without it (29.9 versus 44.2 days). CONCLUSION Bilateral CSDH was an independent predictor for the recurrence of CSDH. Antiplatelet or anticoagulant drugs might facilitate the growth of CSDH. These results may help to identify patients at high risk for the recurrence of CSDH
