Metastasis to the skull frequently occurs in patients with lung, breast and prostate cancer. However, skull metastases from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) have been rarely reported. We review the literature on skull metastasis from HCC and report a case of a 46-year-old male, who was diagnosed a...
We describe a case of transsphenoidal deflation of a detachable balloon after embolization of a carotid-cavernous fistula (CCF). The patient developed complete third and sixth nerve palsies immediately after detachable balloon embolization of the CCF, which was considered to be caused by caverno...
A systematic investigation of long-term follow-up results after microsurgical treatment of patients harbouring an olfactory groove meningioma, particularly with regard to postoperative olfactory and mental function, has rarely been performed. We reassessed a series of patients treated microsurgi...
As a sensitive and convenient means for the cerebral hemodynamic monitoring, dynamic cerebral autoregulation testing could be especially useful in medical conditions where less invasive diagnostics and therapies are preferred. This study analysed the effect of carotid stenting on dynamic autoreg...
Hemorrhage from cerebral vascular malformations such as cerebral cavernous malformation (CCM) can result in significant mortality and morbidity, but its underlying mechanism is undetermined. Excessive degradation of the vascular matrix by matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), proteolytic enzymes tha...
The improved knowledge of the clinical and haemodynamical aspects of extracranial arteriovenous malformations in the 18th century provided a foundation for the understanding and treatment of cerebrovascular pathology. It was not until the late 19th century that detailed clinicopathological repor...
We report a case of dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF) of the transverse-sigmoid sinus presenting with intraventricular hemorrhage. Cerebellar infarction developed after transarterial embolization, and decompressive craniectomy was performed to relieve the mass effect. Through the bone window of...
Intracranial malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors (MPNST) and intrasellar schwannomas are rare tumors. We describe a case of an intrasellar schwannoma with progression to a MPNST, a finding that, although very rare, extends the differential diagnosis of intrasellar lesions.
None of the materials currently used to reconstruct skull defects is fully satisfactory. Their biological and physical properties are very different to those of natural bone. Solid state, high porosity hydroxy-apatite (HA) seems to be a good support for bone regeneration within the prostheses, e...
