Background: Recent experimental evidence indicates that endogenous mechanisms against cerebral vasospasm can be induced via preconditioning (PC). Objective: To determine whether these vascular protective mechanisms are also present in vivo […]
Background: Endovascular techniques introduced strong extrinsic forces that provoked reactive changes in aneurysm surgery. Microsurgery has become less invasive, more appealing to patients, lower risk, and efficacious for complex aneurysms, […]
Background: Aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage is a disabling disease. Endovascular coiling provides minimally invasive, effective, and safe treatment of both ruptured and unruptured intracranial aneurysms. Intracranial stents have improved the endovascular […]
Background: Flow-diverting stent (FDS) implantation is an endovascular treatment option for intracranial aneurysms. However, little is known about the hemodynamic effects. Objective: To assess the effect of stent compression on […]
