Endovascular management of distal anterior inferior cerebellar artery aneurysms: Report of two cases and review of the literature

We report two cases of fusiform distal AICA aneurysms presenting with subarachnoid hemorrhage. Parent artery occlusion with coils and n-butyl cyanoacrilate (n-BCA) resulted in complete aneurysm occlusion and prevented rebleeding.

Intracranial Arteriovenous Malformations

Dr. Stieg's authoritative text has become a standard for those wishing to learn the very latest in diagnosis and treatment of AVMs.

Advances in endovascular aneurysm treatment: are we making a difference?

Recent advancements in endovascular aneurysm repair, including bioactive and expansile coils and intracranial stents, hold promise for improved aneurysm occlusion rates.

Interventional Neuroradiology

The INR team at Weill Cornell Medicine

The Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center is proud of its world-class Interventional Neuroradiology (INR) Program, one of the few such programs in the world to offer a full team of specialists in this advanced discipline. Under the direction of Dr. Y. Pierre Gobin, the Interventional Neuroradiology Program at the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center performs advanced procedures every day, leading to better patient care, shorter hospital stays, and better outcomes.

Conditions We Treat

Endovascular Neurosurgery (Interventional Neuroradiology)

Endovascular neurosurgery is a specialized subset of Interventional Neuroradiology (INR) that uses tiny catheters to perform minimally invasive vascular procedures in the brain and spine. These advanced procedures are taking the place of older techniques that once required open brain or spine surgery. Now, starting with just a small needle stick in an artery in the leg, our team of experts at the Weill Cornell Medicine Brain and Spine Center can routinely attack complex diseases like aneurysms, AVMs, brain tumors, and strokes.

MicroVention Low-Profile Visualized Intraluminal Support LVIS or LVIS Jr. Humanitarian Use Device (LVIS HUD)

The LVIS HUD is a stent (a small metallic mesh tube) that will be placed across the neck of the aneurysm; it is intended to remodel the blood vessel as well as provide support for the coils that will be placed inside the aneurysm. The purpose of the coils is to facilitate aneurysm occlusion by blocking blood flow into the aneurysm. The purpose of the treatment is to close off the aneurysm neck and lower the chance of aneurysm rupture.

Acoustic Neuroma Program

Dr. Philip E. Stieg and Dr. Samuel Selesnick

The Acoustic Neuroma Program at the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center is dedicated to delivering advanced treatments to patients affected by these tumors. The multidisciplinary team, led by neurosurgeon Dr. Philip E. Stieg and neurotologist Dr. Samuel H. Selesnick, offers leading-edge treatments with options designed to preserve hearing.

Conditions We Treat

Facial Pain Program

Dr. Philip Stieg and Dr. Michael Kaplitt

The Facial Pain Program at the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center is an innovative program that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of two of the most disabling causes of facial pain: trigeminal neuralgia and hemifacial spasm.
