Risk factors for the development of adjacent segment disease following anterior cervical arthrodesis for degenerative cervical disease: Comp...
We enrolled 242 patients who had undergone anterior cervical fusion for degenerative cervical disease, and had at least 5years of follow-up. We evaluated the development of ASDz and the rate of revision surgery. To identify the risk factors for ASDz, the sagittal alignment, spinal canal diameter, ra...
Non-motor symptoms in Chinese Parkinson's disease patients.
This study was designed to survey the prevalence and distribution of non-motor symptoms (NMS) in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients in Shanghai, China, and to investigate the association between NMS and health-related quality of life (HRQoL). One hundred fifty-five PD patients were evaluated using th...
Brainstem encephalitis caused by Coxiella burnetii.
We describe a patient who presented with progressive sensory changes, dizziness, and motor weakness. The cerebrospinal fluid revealed pleocytosis, and MRI indicated the presence of a diffuse brain stem lesion. An indirect immunofluorescence test revealed antibodies against C. burnetii. The symptoms...
Neuropsychological outcomes of stereotactic radiotherapy for cerebral arteriovenous malformations.
To our knowledge, this is the first study to investigate cognitive outcome in patients with large or surgically inaccessible cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), who were treated with hypo-fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (HSRT). A sample of 10 patients with AVMs was assessed up to 3.5...
Idiopathic granulomatous hypophysitis presenting as pituitary apoplexy.
Idiopathic granulomatous hypophysitis (IGH) is an extremely rare chronic inflammatory lesion of the pituitary gland. This condition typically presents with chronic onset of headache and slow development of visual deficits. Pituitary apoplexy is a clinical syndrome characterized by sudden onset 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...
