We report a patient with a marginal tentorial artery to ophthalmic artery anastomosis. A middle-aged man presented with subarachnoid hemorrhage and underwent angiography, where selective microcatheter injection of the meningohypophyseal trunk and marginal tentorial artery revealed a co...
A pilocytic astrocytoma is not usually considered in the differential diagnosis of an intrasellar tumor. An awareness of this tumor as primarily an intrasellar entity is important to avoid confusion during its diagnosis. We retrospectively examined the records of 631 patients treated a...
Ependymomas arising in the intrasellar compartment are extremely rare and most often are not included in the differential diagnosis of an intrasellar tumor mass. We review the literature to further advance awareness regarding unusual presentations of this type of tumor and present an i...
Leptomeningeal metastasis (LM) in breast cancer patients confers a uniformly poor prognosis and decreased quality of life. Treatment options are limited and often ineffective, due in large part to limitations imposed by the blood–brain barrier and the very aggressive nature of this dis...
Gap junction protein beta 1 (GJB1) gene mutations lead to X-linked Charcot–Marie–Tooth (CMTX) disease. We investigated a Chinese family with CMTX and identified a novel GJB1 point mutation. Clinical and electrophysiological features of the pedigree were examined, and sequence alteratio...
Infectious intracranial aneurysms are rare vascular lesions that classically occur in patients with infective endocarditis. We present a 49-year-old man with altered mental status and headache with rapid growth and rupture of an infectious intracranial aneurysm with catastrophic intrac...
The World Health Organization (WHO) classification system for glial tumors provides guidance as to the predicted course of the disease and choice of treatment. However, histologically identical tumors may have a very different outcome and response to treatment. Molecular markers that c...
Lumbar spine surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia, although spinal anesthesia can also be used. Given the prevalence of lumbar spine surgery, small differences in cost between the two anesthetic techniques have the potential to make a large impact on overall healthca...
Oromandibular dystonia (OMD) is a focal dystonia that involves the mouth, jaw, and/or tongue. It can be classified as idiopathic, tardive dystonia or secondary to other neurological disorders and subdivided into jaw opening, jaw closing, jaw deviation and lip pursing. The muscles invol...
Open-door laminoplasty (ODL) and French-door laminoplasty (FDL) are used to treat cervical multilevel compressive myelopathy. However, differences in outcome between the approaches remain unknown. To investigate treatment differences, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis....
