'L-stenting' for wide-neck bifurcation aneurysms

7/4/2024
Single-stent assisted coiling techniques such as ‘L-stenting’ are an alternative to intrasaccular devices for wide-neck bifurcation aneurysms. In this episode, Aliya Siddiqui¹ and Dr. Reade De Leacy² join JNIS editor-in-chief Dr. Felipe Albuquerque to discuss the background and findings of their recent study, regarding the efficacy and safety of the 'L-stenting' technique.

Neuropsychiatric consequences of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage

5/7/2024
Patients with good motor function outcomes after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage treatment may still be left with neuropsychiatric effects. They can suffer from such difficult conditions as cognitive dysfunction, depression and sexual dysfunction. Not all of these patients will volunteer their symptoms unprompted on follow-up. This outcome type has had limited study, and became an interest of today's guest, Dr. Jose Danilo Bengzon Diestro (1). JNIS editor-in-chief Dr. Felipe Albuquerque speaks with him on this subject, based on the recently published paper, "Long-term neuropsychiatric complications of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage: a narrative review".

Nationwide rAVM discharge incidence is inversely correlated with uAVM intervention rate

9/7/2022
The 2013 ARUBA trial concluded that medical management alone is superior to medical management with interventional therapy for patients with unruptured brain arteriovenous malformations. A study was conducted to analyze AVM treatment and epidemiologic response to the ARUBA trial. Following ARUBA, there has been a stark decrease in interventions for uAVMs. Nationwide rAVM discharge incidence is inversely correlated with uAVM intervention rate. Less uAVM interventions may lead to a substantial increase in AVM rupture incidence. In this podcast, JNIS Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Felipe C. Albuquerque speaks with Dr. Evan Luther(1) and Dr. Robert Starke(2) about their paper "Unruptured arteriovenous malformation intervention rate is inversely correlated with ruptured AVM discharge incidence" - https://jnis.bmj.com/content/12/suppl_1/a163.

Perfusion-guided endovascular super-selective intra-arterial infusion for treatment of brain tumors

6/27/2022
Survival for glioblastoma remains very poor despite decades of research, with a 5-year survival of only 5%. Technological improvements that have revolutionized treatment of ischemic stroke and brain aneurysms have great potential in providing more precise and selective delivery of cancer therapeutic agents to brain tumors. In this podcast, JNIS Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Felipe C. Albuquerque speaks with Dr. Stephen Chen (1)and Dr. Peter Kan (2) about their paper "Perfusion-guided endovascular super-selective intra-arterial infusion for treatment of malignant brain tumors". The paper describes a technique using perfusion guidance to enhance the precision of endovascular super-selective intra-arterial (ESIA) infusions of mesenchymal stem cells loaded with Delta-24 in the treatment of glioblastoma. This technique enhances targeted super-selective delivery of therapeutic agents for brain tumors. Paper available online (https://jnis.bmj.com/content/14/6/533) and in June print issue of JNIS.

Comparing treatment outcomes of intracranial bifurcation aneurysms locations using the WEB device

5/17/2022
The Woven EndoBridge (WEB) device has FDA approval for treatment of wide-necked intracranial bifurcation aneurysms. It has been shown to result in adequate occlusion in bifurcation aneurysms overall, but its usefulness in the individual bifurcation locations has been evaluated separately only in few case series, which were limited by small sample sizes. In this podcast, JNIS Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Felipe C.

Sex differences in endovascular thrombectomy outcomes in large vessel occlusion

4/12/2022
Sex disparities in acute ischemic stroke outcomes are well reported with IV thrombolysis. Despite several studies, there is still a lack of consensus on whether endovascular thrombectomy (EVT) outcomes differ between men and women. In this podcast, we discuss the Selection for Endovascular Treatment in Acute Ischemic Stroke (SELECT) study, in which women had similar discharge outcomes as men following EVT, in a propensity-matched cohort, but the improvement from discharge to 90 days was significantly worse in women, suggesting the influence of post-discharge factors.

Albuquerque, interviews Johanna Fifi (Department of Neurosurgery, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York) and Amrou Sarraj (Department of Neurology, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Cleveland, Ohio).

Major complications of dural venous sinus stenting for idiopathic intracranial hypertension

12/13/2021
Venous sinus stenting (VSS) is a safe, effective, and increasingly popular treatment option for selected patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH). Serious complications associated with VSS are rarely reported. In this podcast, JNIS Editor-in-Chief, Felipe C. Albuquerque, interviews Dr. Kyle Fargen, from the Department of Neurosurgery, Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, about a case series in which serious complications after VSS were identified retrospectively from multicenter databases. The cases are reviewed and learning points regarding complication avoidance and management are presented in his paper (https://jnis.bmj.com/content/early/2021/04/27/neurintsurg-2021-017361).
