Vein of Galen aneurysmal malformation: combined transvenous and transarterial method using a "kissing microcatheter technique".

Dan MeilaFriedhelm Brassel


Vein of Galen aneurysmal malformation (VGAM) is a severe pediatric neurovascular disease. Children often present with congestive heart failure in the neonatal period. In the last decades, endovascular treatment became the first therapeutic option. The purpose of this study is to report our results in the treatment of VGAM with a combined transvenous and transarterial method in the last ten years. In our cohort of 28 patients with VGAM, 22 patients were treated endovascularly between 1992 and 2010. In the last 10 years, a consecutive series of 14 children were treated with a combined transvenous and transarterial method. The therapeutic goal was immediate shunt reduction of the arteriovenous malformation, especially in the neonatal period. Closure of the fistulous connections was achieved by coiling using a combined transvenous and transarterial approach, called "kissing microcatheter technique". Eight of 14 children presented in the neonatal period with severe congestive heart failure. The other six patients presented between the age of 2 and 17 months. One patient died due to a non-procedural complication in another hospital 2 years after the last treatment. Complete or >90% of angiographically confirmed closure of the malform...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
