Results of clipping surgery for aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage in the ninth and tenth decades of life.
This study investigated the outcome of clipping surgery for ruptured aneurysms in patients older than 80years of age. From 1988 to 2011 data were retrospectively reviewed, and 196 patients treated with clipping obliteration for aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage were identified. Patients were divide...
Primary herpes virus infection and ischemic stroke in childhood: A new association?
We describe, to our knowledge, the first case of arterial ischemic stroke after primary herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV1) infection in a previously healthy child, without signs of encephalitis. A 10-year-old previously healthy girl was admitted to our hospital with acute left-sided hemiparesis whic...
Endovascular coiling of a ruptured basilar apex aneurysm with associated pseudoaneurysm.
We report a rare case of a 52-year-old-woman who presented with acute subarachnoid hemorrhage and was found to have a ruptured 5mm×8mm bi-lobulated basilar apex aneurysm on CT angiography. Digital subtraction angiography demonstrated an associated anterior pseudoaneurysm that was formed secondary to...
Nelson's syndrome: Single centre experience using the linear accelerator (LINAC) for stereotactic radiosurgery and fractionated stereotactic...
We report our own institution's series of this pathology managed with radiation: prior to 1990, 12 patients were managed with conventional radiotherapy, and between 1990 and 2007, five patients underwent stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and two patients fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (FSRT),...
Fractionated radiation therapy for vestibular schwannoma.
We review the literature in order to summarize the application of fractionated radiation therapy to this tumor entity, where it is used as a primary treatment or, more commonly, as an adjunct therapy. We also provide an overview of the use of fractionated radiation therapy for the preservation of he...
Bibrachial amyotrophy and ventral spinal cyst associated with myelomalacia and intracranial hypertension.
It has been recently recognised that patients with ventral intraspinal fluid collections secondary to cerebrospinal fluid leaks can present with bibrachial amyotrophy or mimic Hirayama disease. Here we present two further patients that expand the clinical spectrum of this disorder to include associa...
A novel computer algorithm allows for volumetric and cross-sectional area analysis of indirect decompression following transpsoas lumbar art...
We have found they are often incapable of being used for objective post-operative volumetric comparisons. In order to overcome this, we created a computer program that compensates for these variations in MRI technique. For this study, we examined patients who had undergone outside MRI pre-operativel...
Recanalisation success is associated with good clinical outcome despite advanced age and stroke severity in patients treated with the Solita...
We hypothesise that successful recanalisation, unattentuated by age and stroke severity, is associated with improved clinical outcomes in patients treated with the Solitaire stentriever (ev3 Endovascular, Plymouth, MN, USA). We conducted a retrospective study of 60 consecutive acute ischaemic stroke...
Percutaneous vertebroplasty compared with conservative treatment in patients with chronic painful osteoporotic spinal fractures.
The efficacy of percutaneous vertebroplasty (PVP) for patients with chronic painful osteoporotic compression fractures remains unknown. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of PVP and conservative treatment (CT) for pain relief and functional outcome in patients with chronic compres...
Incidence and trends of stroke and its subtypes in Changsha, China from 2005 to 2011.
During the 1990s no significant changes were found for the high incidence of ischemic stroke (IS) in Changsha, in contrast to the increase observed in Beijing and Shanghai. However, the epidemiological patterns of stroke may change with economic development. This study aimed to examine the character...
