Neurosurgical Stroke Management trends - Philippines PART II
SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE ANEURYSMS Current Western Trend 50-90% coiled Clipping/Coiling trend reversed in 8 yrs Philippines Phil Gen Hospital 120 cases/yr 7% coiled Coiling rate higher in other private centers
INTRACEREBRAL HEMATOMA 2007 Jan to Oct Total Aneurysms 107 Clipped 98 Coiled 9 (10%) 2007 Jan to Oct Total Aneurysms 14 Clipped 11 Coiled 3 (25%)
ANEURYSMS CURRENT “HOT” ISSUES Management approach for UIA Treat or not? Endovascular and Microsurgical indications (“or” not “vs”)
UNRUPTURED INTRACRANIAL ANEURYSMS ISUIA II Prospective Study Treat Anterior >7mm Posterior circln Observe Anterior <7mm Editorial Comments 17% were intracavernous, included to increase accrual rate Aneurysms known to have very low bleeding rate Actual rate may have been underestimated
Unruptured Intracranial Aneurysms Small ones (<7mm) may also rupture Young pxs with HPN specially post circulation and pcomm Nahed et al 2005 May grow if > 5mm, MCA, Multiple and associated w previous SAH Myazawa 2006
Unruptured Intracranial Aneurysms May show racial/regional differences in rupture rates Japan UIA study 2.7% annual rate (ISUIA 1%) Morita et al 2005 50% will opt for surgery Loftus 2007
UNRUPTURED INTRACRANIAL ANEURYSMS Even if < 7mm, should be evaluated for factors that may increase the likelihood of bleeding and be watched closely.
ENDOVASCULAR OR SURGICAL TREATMENT ENDOVASCULAR TREATMENT ISAT Absolute risk reduction 6.9% < 100% occlusion in 6% Metaanalysis (Fraser et al 2006) 19 studies Surgery Endovasc Complications 11% 19% Reoperation 3.4% 12.5 % <100% occlusion (8.3-70.4%)
Treatment of Ruptured Aneurysms Endovascular procedures are less traumatic Surgical clipping is more effective
Developments in Endovascular Treatment Faster than Surgery Balloons GDC coil 3D coils Bioactive coils Liquids (Onyx,Neuracryl) Stent and Balloon assisted
ANEURYSMS Generally with good outcome with coiling Increasing cases 2004-2006 : 20-30/yr 2007 : 59 (Jan-Aug) (Boston Scientific) 2011 : 166 Modality shows good promise for comparable long term results with surgery
ENDOVASCULAR TREATMENT WILL BE/(IS?) FIRST LINE OPTION ROLE OF SURGERY IN ANEURYSM TX Angioarchitecture deemed difficult for coiling Giant aneurysms/Fusiform Aneurysms +/- Bypass Surgery Hematoma evacuation then clipping Proximal occlusion of parent artery Economically not feasible Logistically not feasible
Developments in Microsurgery Minimally invasive techniques New clip models/instruments Better microscopes Intraoperative Evaluation Doppler micro probes ICG/Infrared 800
ANEURYSMS Philippine Experience for Open Surgery Outcome at par with world standards Still primary option in government hospitals Residents still do a lot of cases PGH: 60-70/yr Trend towards “Keyhole Craniotomy” Incorported into residency training
Implication of Increased Coiling Less cases for Neurosurgical residents Eventually open surgery for aneurysms will be in high volume centers only More complex cases for surgery Extinction of General NS doing aneurysms ?
ARTERIOVENOUS MALFORMATION Not commonly seen Less surgical experience now for most neurosurgeons Tend to be sent to SRS even if with Hge Personal : Surgical if with hemorrhage and accessible Awake cranio for eloquent location SRS for “highly eloquent” (BS,BG) All modalities for treatment are available Microsurgery Radiosurgery ( 1 Gamma/3X Knife/ none in PGH) Endovascular Surgery ( 8 centers)
AVM MANAGEMENT NO TREATMENT MICROSURGERY ENDOVASCULAR SURGERY RADIOSURGERY
FACTORS TO CONSIDER Effectivity Mortality Morbidity Time element Cost
MICROSURGICAL –SMALL AVMS(<3CM) New Def Severe Dead Rebld Occl Sundt 1991 4.8% 2.2% 0% 0% 100% (n=84) Morgan 2000 2.7% 0% 0% 99% (n=110) Schramm 2004 5.4% 2.4% 0.9% 0.9% 98.2% (n=116)
PGH Series 83 patients reviewed 2001-2005 (72 surgical and 12 endovascular) 44% present as hemorrhage Size Small (<3cm) 68% Medium (3-<6cm) 28% Large (= or >6cm) 10% Outcome for Surgery SM Grade 1-3 Morbidity 0-8% (across the grades) Mortality 0% Gigataras et al Asia Neurology Dec 2006
EMBOLIZATION FOR AVM PGH: 16 - 20cases/ yr Cure in 10% Partial targeted embolization in the rest
EMBOLIZATION EMBOLIZATION SERIES Oblit Rt Morb Mor 1995-2007 2.6-47% 1.9-15% 1.2-5.8% New Onyx Embo Material (5 series) Obliteration rate 16-20 % Rebleed 4-7% Deficit 4.6-24% Mortality 0-3.2%
EMBOLIZATION Carries a risk, has mortality Cure is 10-15% range Its usage has benefit but there are attendant risks Not as a routine measure Dilemna: Is it worth adding the risk of embolization on top of the risks of micosurgery?
ARTERIOVENOUS MALFORMATION RADIOSURGERY Basal Ganglia,Thalamus Cure rate 61.9% Complication 19% Hemorrhage Rate 14.2% in 2 years Andrada,Sousa et al 2005 Motor Cortex Oblit Rate <3cc 87% Cxs 3% 3-10cc 64% Death 3% > 10cc 25% Hadjipanayis, Lunsford et al 2000
Brainstem Kurita H (GK) JNNP 2000 n=80 with 52 mos f/u Nidus volume 1-2cc Oblit Rate 52.2% EMBO+SRS 50% Rebleed 16.7% Recurrence 20% Mortality 13.3% Massager and Lunsford (GK) JNS 2000 n=87 with 3 yrs f/u, 1.3cc Nidus vol. Obliteration rate 63% at 2 yrs 73% at 3 yrs Rebleeding rate 3.4% Mortality 1.1%
LESSONS LEARNED We need all three modalities SMALL AVMS Microsurgery has the highest exclusion rate- with less mortality and comparable rate of complications of all 3 modalities LARGER AVMS RS carry markedly higher risk, exclusion rate is higher in microsurgery
RS role significant in selected cases The role of embolization as a routine presurgical adjunct is not yet clear The main application of embolization is transformation of a high risk large AVMs to lower risk operable ones
RECOMMENDATIONS AVMs Spetzler Martin Gr I-III Usually for microsurgey, specially when ruptured, unless highly eloquent in location (brainstem,basal ganglia) 10% may be amenable to embolization AVMs S/M IV & V No treatment if asymptomatic. If symptomatic and high risk, embolization is recommended to relieve symptoms or as a pre-surgical step
AVM MANAGEMENT Trainees should be ensured of surgical cases if excision is coming out to be the better option Choose carefully the cases for SRS/embolization If surgeons lose the skill we might end up with less than ideal management options
