Diffusion tensor imaging in brainstem tuberculoma.
Integrity of descending white matter tracts can be evaluated by diffusion tensor imaging. In rim-enhancing intraparenchymal lesions, this technique can assist in the differentiation of demyelinating disease from tumor or abscess. Diffusion tensor imaging characteristics of tuberculoma have not been...
Relationship of olfactory function with olfactory bulbus volume, disease duration and Unified Parkinson's disease rating scale scores in pat...
We aimed to investigate the relationship between olfactory function and olfactory bulbus (OB) volume, disease duration and Unified Parkinson's disease rating scale (UPDRS) scores in early stage idiopathic Parkinson's disease patients. The University of Pennsylvania Smell Identification Test (UPSIT)...
Tri-axial system using the Solitaire-FR and Penumbra Aspiration Microcatheter for acute mechanical thrombectomy.
The Solitaire-FR (eV3/Covidien, Irvine, CA, USA) retrievable stent (SFR), designed for mechanical thrombectomy in acute ischemic stroke, recently received Food and Drug Administration approval in the USA. Clot retrieval is performed by deploying the SFR through a microcatheter directly into the thro...
Relationship between left atrial volume index and cognitive decline in elderly patients with sinus rhythm.
We assessed the cognitive status and LA volume (LAV) of 108 consecutive patients (27 males; mean age, 74.8±6.9years) with sinus rhythm. Cognitive status was assessed by the Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE). Patients with a MMSE score of ⩽25 were considered to have cognitive impairment. LAV was m...
Kleine-Levin syndrome with brain atrophy.
Our report describes a rare patient with KLS and prominent brain atrophy. A 24-year-old woman developed severe neurological and psychiatric features 12 years previously, 2weeks after she was hit in the head. Although she has had no recurrence of the primary KLS symptoms, she continues to have a cogn...
Cardiologic predictors of sudden death in patients with myotonic dystrophy type 1.
The aim of this study was to analyze survival, causes of death and cardiologic predictors of sudden death in a large cohort of patients with myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1). The study was comprised of 171 adult DM1 patients hospitalized at the Neurology Clinic in a 20-year period. Severe electrocard...
Long-term survival of patients with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM).
Long-term survival is an often used, yet poorly defined, concept in the study of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). This study suggests a method to define a time-point for long-term survival in patients with GBM. Data for this study were obtained from the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End-Results datab...
Posterior decompression with transforaminal interbody fusion for thoracic myelopathy due to ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligam...
We conclude that PTTIF provides satisfactory neurological recovery and stabilises the thoracic fusion through a single posterior approach. However, this procedure is not complication free and demands advanced technical expertise on the part of practitioners, particularly to avoid catastrophic spinal...
Acute tension pneumocephalus secondary to whole spine pneumorrhachis as an unusual presentation of a colon cancer complicated by a transsacr...
A 52-year-old woman who was having chemotherapy for treatment of an adenocarcinoma of the colon, was admitted to the emergency department because of a moderate neurological impairment. Head CT scan showed bifrontal pneumocephalus without fractures or discontinuities of the skull base. A few hours la...
Comparison of covered stents with detachable balloons for treatment of posttraumatic carotid-cavernous fistulas.
We aimed to compare the angiographic and clinical results of treatment with covered stents with the results of treatment with DB. Thirty-four patients with posttraumatic DCCF were selected for treatment with DB (n=19, group A) or covered stents (n=15, group B). Data on the technical success, duratio...
