1. This systematic review and meta-analysis of patients with blister-like aneurysms examined neurologic outcomes and mortality differences between endovascular and surgical treatments, finding that endovascular repairs were associated with improved overall functional recovery and reduced mortality relative to surgical interventions. 2. Endovascular treatment was associated with more favorable neurologic...
1. Ten years after patients received endovascular coiling (EC) or neurosurgical clipping (NC) for a subarachnoid hemorrhage, EC patients were more likely to be alive and independent that NC patients. EC patients were at higher risk to experience re-bleeding from the target aneurysm, though there was no significant difference...
Image: PD  1. Prevalence of unruptured cerebral aneurysms (UCAs) detected by magnetic resonance aniography (MRA) in adults was found to be 7.0%.  Evidence Rating Level: 3 (Average)        Study Rundown: The prevalence of unruptured cerebral aneurysms (UCAs) have been previously been reported as 1-5% with an annual rupture rate of...
Image: PD 1. Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) and open repair (OR) repair of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) do not have significantly different 30-day mortality rates.  2. EVAR leads to significantly less renal insufficiency, possibly due to lack of suprarenal clamping.  Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent)  Study Rundown: Ruptured AAAs require immediate surgical...
Image: PD 1. The EVAR II trial compared endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair with no intervention in patients unsuitable for the open procedure. 2. There were significantly fewer aneurysm-related deaths in the endovascular group, compared to no intervention. 3. The rates of complication and reintervention were similar to the rates observed in...
Image: PD 1. The EVAR I trial compared the safety and efficacy of endovascular and open abdominal aortic aneurysm repair 2. There were no significant differences in all-cause mortality between the two groups. 3. The endovascular group experienced significantly higher rates of graft-related complications and reinterventions. Original Date of Publication: May 20, 2010 The...
Image: CC 1. Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) expansion rate and risk of rupture are directly correlated with aneurysm diameter. 2. A surveillance schedule with conservative imaging frequency can be established for small AAAs, the authors suggest surveillance intervals of 3, 2 and 1 years for AAAs measuring 3.0-3.9 cm, 4.0-4.4 cm,...
