The cavernous sinus (CS) is a dural sinus located on each side of the pituitary fossa. Neoplastic and vascular lesions, such as arteriovenous fistulas, frequently involve the CS. This sinus plays a role as a crossroad receiving venous blood flow from the facial, orbital, meningeal, and neural venous tributaries. The relationship between these surrounding relevant veins and the CS, as well as the CS itself, varies anatomically. For safe and effective surgical and endovascular treatment of lesions involving the CS, knowledge of the anatomy and variations of the CS and the relevant surrounding veins is highly important. In this section, the anatomy and variations of the CS and the relevant surrounding veins are outlined.

The arterial anatomy of the parasellar area is complex in that it deals with extracranial–intracranial anastomosis and supply to various cranial nerves in a small area. Pathologies such as hypervascular tumors and shunts are not uncommon and require good knowledge of anatomy in planning the treatment. In this article, the basic anatomy of the arterial supply in this region is discussed, covering the origins, territories, relation to the cranial nerves, and the connections among different systems.

Objective: We encountered a patient with lateral medullary infarction during transarterial embolization of the posterior meningeal artery (PMA). We reviewed the anatomic characteristics/imaging findings of this disorder.Case Presentation: A 69-year-old male. Cerebral infarction involving the lateral medulla occurred during transarterial embolization of a dural arteriovenous fistula. It was considered to be a complication related to occlusion of a lateral medulla-penetrating vessel on microcatheter/guidewire operations in the PMA. When examining images in detail, the blood vessel could be confirmed using DSA and 3D angiography.Conclusion: When performing embolization, the presence of a brainstem-penetrating vessel originating from the PMA must be considered.

Objective: CT perfusion (CTP) provides various hemodynamic parameters. However, it is unclear which CTP parameters are useful in predicting clinical outcome in patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS).Methods: Between February 2019 and June 2021, patients with anterior circulation large-vessel occlusion who achieved successful recanalization within 8 hours after stroke onset were included. The relative CTP parameter values analyzed by the reformulated singular value decomposition (SVD) method in the affected middle cerebral artery territories compared to those in the unaffected side were calculated. In addition, the ischemic core volume (ICV) was evaluated using a Bayesian Vitrea. The final infarct volume (FIV) was assessed by 24-hour MRI. The correlation between these CTP-derived values and clinical outcome was assessed.Results: Forty-two patients were analyzed. Among the CTP-related parameters, the ICV, relative cerebral blood volume (rCBV), and relative mean transit time (rMTT) showed a strong correlation with the FIV (ρ = 0.74, p <0.0001; ρ = −0.67, p <0.0001; and ρ = −0.66, p <0.0001, respectively). In multivariate analysis, rCBV, rMTT, and ICV were significantly associated with good functional outcome, which was defined as a modified Rankin Scale score ≤2 (OR, 6.87 [95% CI, 1.20–39.30], p = 0.0303; OR, 11.27 [95% CI, 0.97–130.94], p = 0.0269; and OR, 36.22 [95% CI, 2.78–471.18], p = 0.0061, respectively).Conclusions: Among the CTP parameters analyzed by the SVD deconvolution algorithms, rCBV and rMTT could be useful imaging predictors of response to recanalization in patients with AIS, and the performances of these variables were similar to that of the ICV calculated by the Bayesian Vitrea.

Objective: In Mexico, the systematic implementation of mechanical thrombectomy has been delayed due to several factors, such as the conditions of the healthcare system. The objective of this report is to explain the experience in our center going through these circumstances, how we have overcome them, our results, and our pending challenges.Methods: This is a single-center, independent, and retrospective study of prospectively collected data destined to record consecutive patients treated with endovascular techniques at a Mexican hospital that implemented a mechanical thrombectomy program for large vessel occlusion (LVO). Patient selection began in February 2017 and ended in January 2020. Patients selected were between the ages of 18 and 80, and could be treated within 8 hours after onset of symptoms. The timeline of the analysis was divided in half (i.e., 18 months). We prognosticate that our concept of permanent training could have an impact on clinical outcomes.Results: In all, 73 patients gathered, of which 60.3% were women and 39.7% were men, with an average patient age of 62 years old. The average Onset-Door time was 248 minutes, and mean Door-Recanalization time was 91.7 minutes, where 29.6% (27.2 min) were used in the endovascular procedure per se. The results obtained were as follows: five (6%) patients with a thrombolysis in cerebral infarction (TICI) <2B and nine patients (12.3%) with a TICI 2B. TICI 2C and 3 were considered optimal results and found in 59 (80.8%) patients. It was found that 17 (23%) patients treated in the first 18 months had favorable outcomes (modified Ranking Scale [mRS] <3), and in the last 18 months, 45 (33%) patients had favorable outcomes (p = 0.0001).Conclusion: Developing countries such as Mexico usually present particular conditions that are not part of the algorithms generated in developed countries. Nevertheless, with logistic adaptation, creativity, and above all, permanent training, similar results to those in other parts of the world can be achieved.

Objective: Detection of acute arterial occlusion in an anomalous middle cerebral artery (MCA) is challenging in an emergency setting because of its rarity.Case Presentation: We report an 81-year-old woman who presented with acute occlusion of a duplicated middle cerebral artery (DMCA). Although the absence of the superior trunk of the left MCA was identified on preoperative imaging, initial angiography showed no typical sign of the occluded vessel. Repeated angiography eventually revealed retrograde arterial flow parallel to the other visible MCA trunk, which raised the possibility of a DMCA. The occlusion occurred at the origin of the DMCA originating from the internal carotid artery terminus, which obscured its presence. Mechanical thrombectomy was performed and achieved complete recanalization. The DMCA had two trunks of approximately equal size. The patient completely recovered within 90 days.Conclusion: Comprehensive knowledge of cerebrovascular anomalies is essential to identify the occluded branch faster and accurately and to avoid thrombectomy-related complications in endovascular recanalization therapy. Relevant DMCA anatomy and tips for identifying an occluded DMCA are discussed.

Objective: We report a case of additional carotid artery stenting (CAS) for plaque protrusion occurring after initial CAS for radiation-induced common carotid artery (CCA) stenosis.Case Presentation: A 69-year-old man with a history of radiotherapy for laryngeal cancer presented to our hospital with sudden-onset right hemiparesis. Since vulnerable plaque of the left CCA was considered the embolic source for ischemic stroke, CAS was performed for left CCA stenosis. No perioperative complications were observed and the patient was discharged with a modified Rankin Scale score of 0. However, 1 month after CAS, cerebral embolism recurred. As protruding plaque was found on CTA, additional endovascular treatment was performed with intravascular ultrasonography. He was discharged without complications and showed a good outcome at 3 months.Conclusion: In CCA stenosis after radiotherapy, accelerated arteriosclerosis may cause drug-resistant cerebral embolism and plaque protrusion after CAS, making determination of the treatment strategy difficult. Appropriate treatment options need to be based on individual underlying diseases and plaque instability.

Objective: The vessel compression at the root entry zone (REZ) of trigeminal nerve is a common cause of trigeminal neuralgia (TN). We report a rare case of TN caused by dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF) of the transverse-sigmoid sinus without vessel compression at REZ.Case Presentation: A 45-year-old woman presented with right side tinnitus and was diagnosed as a DAVF of the right transverse-sigmoid sinus (Borden Type I). After that, the facial pain in the right maxillary nerve area appeared and was getting worse. DSA revealed an enlargement of the artery of foramen rotundum (AFR) as one of the feeding arteries. MRI revealed no evidence of vascular compression at REZ. The patient was treated with transarterial embolization (TAE) with Onyx via the branches of the middle meningeal artery (MMA) and occipital artery (OA). The AFR decreased in size and the facial pain was improved. However, the DAVF and the facial pain were recurred. Finally, the DAVF was completely embolized with transvenous embolization (TVE). During 1-year follow-up period, the patient remained free of pain without recurrence.Conclusion: The compression of the maxillary nerve by the AFR might result in TN, because the pain diminished after shrinkage of the AFR by the endovascular treatment.

Objective: We herein report two cases of transient cerebral vasoconstriction after carotid artery stenting (CAS).Case Presentation: An 81-year-old man presented with asymptomatic severe stenosis in the right carotid artery accompanied by a slight reduction in cerebrovascular reactivity. CAS was performed, but the patient had a generalized seizure because of transient cerebral ischemia caused by intolerance to carotid artery occlusion with balloon protection. Confusion and left hemiparesis persisted. DSA suggested cerebral ischemia due to vasoconstriction as the cause of these prolonged symptoms. A 66-year-old man presented with asymptomatic severe stenosis in the right carotid artery with slight hypoperfusion. CAS was performed. The patient developed left hemispatial neglect, dysarthria, and left hemiparesis 12 hours after the procedure. DSA revealed cerebral vasoconstriction in the responsible territory. The conditions of both patients improved within several days with medical treatment and they were discharged without neurological deficits.Conclusion: The cases presented herein show that transient ischemic complications caused by cerebral vasoconstriction may develop after CAS.

Objective: The objective of this study was to evaluate the reproducibility of three-dimensional (3D) images of the aortic arch reconstructed using a novel image processing algorithm for non-enhanced computed tomography (CT) images of the cervicothorax and abdomen obtained before emergency endovascular surgery.Case Presentations: In all, 46 patients who underwent acute mechanical thrombectomy between January and December 2018 were examined. The anatomical variations of the aortic arch were reproduced in all cases; however, the reproduction of the carotid arteries was difficult.Conclusion: Our novel 3D analysis system enables obtaining information on the aortic arch easily from plain CT data that may be useful in acute endovascular treatment.

Objective: Cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome (CHS) including intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) is a serious complication after carotid artery stenting (CAS). Therefore, neurointerventionalists in Japan commonly stratify the risk for CHS preprocedurally in CAS candidates using various imaging tests that are available, and sometimes performed preventive methods against CHS, such as staged angioplasty (SAP), undersized-balloon angioplasty followed by delayed CAS. In the current study, we used a nationwide questionnaire survey to clarify the current status of the periprocedural management against CHS and the 30-day outcomes of patients with a high risk of CHS after undergoing CAS or endovascular carotid revascularization procedures, such as SAP or stand-alone angioplasty. This study specifically analyzed the data for the periprocedural management against CHS.Materials and Methods: Between June and August 2014, questionnaires were emailed to all of the neurointerventional specialists certified by the Japanese Society for Neuroendovascular Therapy (JSNET). If two or more specialist physicians belonged to an institute, a representative physician of the institute answered the questionnaire. This study focused on 14 items of the questionnaire that were directed at examining the preprocedural imaging tests done to evaluate the risk of CHS, the periprocedural management strategies used to prevent CHS, and the postprocedural imaging tests to detect hyperperfusion phenomenon, among others.Results: Replies were obtained from 154 institutes which represented 336 JSNET-certified neurointerventional specialists. Preprocedural imaging tests done to evaluate the risk of CHS were performed in 144 institutes (93.5%), with single-photon emission CT (SPECT) the most used modality in 88.2% of the institutes. Acetazolamide challenge was performed in 114 (89.8%) of 127 institutes that used preprocedural SPECT evaluation. Of the institutes performing preprocedural CHS-risk evaluation, general anesthesia was administered during the procedure in 44.4%, periprocedural edaravone (a free radical scavenging agent) was used in 52.1%, and periprocedural strict blood pressure control was performed in 91.7%. Postprocedural intravenous anticoagulation therapy was not used for patients with a high risk of CHS in 63.2%. Postprocedural imaging tests to detect hyperperfusion phenomenon were undertaken in 99.3% of the institutes performing preprocedural CHS-risk evaluation. The leading imaging modality, SPECT, was used in 78.3%. SAP was attempted or performed in 27.1% of the institutes.Conclusion: The present study demonstrated that Japanese practitioners attempt to prevent CHS after carotid endovascular revascularization procedures. Most Japanese neurointerventionalists preprocedurally evaluated the risk of CHS in CAS candidates primarily using SPECT with acetazolamide challenge. The penetration rate for SAP was 27.1% of the institutes.

Objective: Stretching or avulsion of a small perforating artery caused by mechanical traction contributes to intracranial hemorrhagic complications in mechanical thrombectomy, especially for medium and small-vessel occlusions. This study aimed to measure the pullout resistance during stent retriever (SR) traction and aspiration catheter (AC) traction with or without thrombi and characterize the mechanical properties of each device.Methods: We placed the thrombectomy device in the area corresponding to the insular segment of the middle cerebral artery of a silicon carotid artery model. The thrombectomy device was automatically pulled out at a constant velocity using a horizontal motorized test stand, and pullout resistance was continuously measured 2000 times per second using a digital force gauge. Five types of SRs and two types of ACs with or without thrombus were evaluated. The data were divided into four groups for analysis: SR without clot, SR with clot, AC without clot, and AC with clot.Results: The line graph was a jagged waveform during SR traction, and it was a gentle curve during AC traction. The maximum pullout resistance was higher in the SR with clot group than the other groups. The coefficient of variation was higher in the SR group than the AC group, with or without clot.Conclusion: The pullout resistance during SR traction was more fluctuated than that during AC traction. In the presence of a thrombus, pullout resistance for SR was substantially increased, whereas AC resistance was less susceptible to thrombi. The differences in characteristics may reflect differences in the frequency of mechanical traction injury between the devices during clinical use.

Objective: We describe a patient treated with transarterial Onyx embolization for a tentorial dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF) who presented with hemifacial spasm (HFS).Case Presentation: A 56-year-old man suffered from right blepharospasm for 4 years, and the symptom gradually spread to the right side of his face with oculo-oral synkinesis. MRI of the brain revealed abnormal multiple flow voids at the surface of brainstem and cerebellar hemisphere. MRA (time of flight) and spoiled gradient recalled echo-revealed abnormal vessels at the posterior fossa indicated arteriovenous shunting. 3D-MRI fusion images showed that a dilated vein was in contact with the root exit zone (REZ) of the right facial nerve. The right carotid angiography displayed a complex tentorial DAVF on the right side. There were multiple feeding vessels drained to the tentorial sinus at the point where the inferior cerebellar vermian vein met, and severe venous congestion was noted. We diagnosed a tentorial DAVF and thought that this was responsible for the right HFS. We used neuroendovascular treatment for this lesion. After transarterial Onyx embolization, his right HFS diminished. MRI after treatment showed that the vein in contact with the REZ of the right facial nerve had shrank.Conclusion: We experienced a rare case of HFS associated with a DAVF. Our case supports that transarterial Onyx embolization can treat HFS associated with a tentorial DAVF. It is the first description of successful treatment that could be confirmed through postoperative MRI.

Objective: We describe a rare case report of micro-arteriovenous malformation (micro-AVM) treated by the endovascular approach in addition with literature review.Case Presentation: A 12-year-old boy presenting with a spontaneous intracerebral hematoma in the left occipital lobe underwent conventional diagnostic workups. The results of initial catheter angiography were considered to be equivocal as the AVM. Superselective angiography (SA) demonstrated a micro or small AVM (single feeder and single drainer type) with an aneurysmal dilatation. Immediate transarterial embolization (TAE) might fail to occlude the whole of nidus area completely, and subsequently, we switched to the surgical exploration of AVM lesion. Intraoperative findings demonstrated that the whole of AVM lesion had already been occluded completely, indicating the complete occlusion by TAE only. Pathological findings of the surgical specimen showed an aneurysmal dilatation was a venous aneurysm with vulnerable vascular wall structure, which was certainly the source of bleeding. Based on the above results, the retrospective revaluation of superselective angiogram permitted us to understand that the nidus of AVM was micro nidus type and TAE had resulted in the complete nidus occlusion.Conclusion: SA is the most useful diagnostic modality to clarify the angioarchitecture of micro-AVM and AVM-related aneurysms. If SA is successfully performed and relatively safe TAE is expected to be possible, the subsequent attempt to do curative embolization as a first-line treatment may be worthy of consideration. However, the surgical procedure should be fully reserved for the possible incomplete obliteration and hemorrhagic complications.

Objective: We report the utility of microcatheter reshaping by referring to fusion images with 3D-DSA and microcatheter 3D images made using non-subtraction and non-contrast (non-SC) rotational images.Case Presentations: Case 1: The patient was a 74-year-old man who had an internal carotid-anterior choroidal artery bifurcation aneurysm with a tortuous proximal parent artery. The initial attempt to introduce the microcatheter into the aneurysm was unsuccessful. During this unsuccessful microcatheter introduction, we created fusion images with 3D-DSA and microcatheter 3D images by acquiring positional information of the microcatheter using the non-SC method. By reshaping the microcatheter with reference to the fusion images, the direction of the distal end of the microcatheter was reshaped to be in accordance with the long axis of the aneurysm, a shape more suitable for coiling. Case 2: The patient was a 47-year-old man who had an anterior communicating (A-com) artery aneurysm with two daughter sacs. We successfully placed two microcatheters in the direction of each sac to make more stable framing by referring to 3D fusion images after the first microcatheter was positioned. In both cases, microcatheter reshaping was necessary because of the vessel and aneurysm anatomy. We have used this technique successfully in 15 patients, for both ruptured and unruptured aneurysms. The average number of microcatheter reshaping was 1.3 times.Conclusion: This method provides effective microcatheter reshaping for coil embolization of aneurysms, particularly those with differences between the axis of the parent artery and the vertical axis of aneurysm, or with a tortuous proximal artery.

Objective: We report a case of mechanical thrombectomy (MT) via the distal transradial approach (dTRA) and technical tips.Case Presentation: An 89-year-old woman was transferred to our hospital due to back pain after a fall and sudden-onset left hemiparesis. We performed MT because three-dimensional computed tomography angiography (3D-CTA) revealed right middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion. The access route was Type 3 aortic arch. The abdominal aorta and common iliac artery were tortuous and partially dissected, and she had a lumbar vertebra fracture. We selected dTRA in consideration of safety, ease of access, and less postoperative postural restriction. The first pass resulted in complete recanalization using an aspiration catheter and stent retriever. Her symptoms rapidly improved and she was discharged with a modified Rankin Scale score of 1.Conclusion: dTRA in MT may be a treatment option.

Objective: We report two cases of thrombectomy for upper extremity artery occlusion with major cerebral artery occlusion using mechanical thrombectomy devices for acute ischemic stroke.Case Presentations: Case 1 was a 79-year-old woman admitted for left internal carotid artery occlusion and left upper extremity artery occlusion. Case 2 was an 87-year-old woman admitted for left middle cerebral artery occlusion and bilateral upper extremity artery occlusion. After performing mechanical thrombectomy for the cerebral artery, we achieved good recanalization of the brachial artery using the same devices in Case 1 and Case 2.Conclusions: Thrombectomy using acute ischemic stroke mechanical thrombectomy devices for upper extremity artery occlusion is useful for recanalization.

Objective: In various fields, differences in eye-gazing patterns during tasks between experts and novices have been evaluated. The aim of this study was to investigate gazing patterns during neuro-endovascular treatment using an eye-tracking device and assess whether gazing patterns depend on the physician’s experience or skill.Methods: Seven physicians performed coil embolization for a cerebral aneurysm in a silicone vessel model under biplane X-ray fluoroscopy, and their gazing patterns were recorded using an eye-tracking device. The subjects were divided into three groups according to experience, highly experienced (Expert) group, intermediately experienced (Trainee) group, and less experienced (Novice) group. The duration of fixation on the anterior–posterior (AP) view screen, lateral (LR) view, and out-of-screen were compared between each group.Results: During microcatheter navigation, the Expert and Trainee groups spent a long time on fixation to AP, while the Novice group split their attention between each location. In coil insertion, the Expert group gazed at both the AP and the LR views with more saccades between screens. In contrast, the Trainee group spent most of their time only on the AP view screen and the Novice group spent longer out-of-screen.Conclusion: An eye-tracking device can detect different gazing patterns among physicians with several experiences and skill levels of neuroendovascular treatment. Learning the gazing patterns of experts using eye tracking may be a good educational tool for novices and trainees.
