Anterior panhypopituitarism in diffuse large B-cell stage IV lymphoma.
We describe a 69-year-old man with diffuse large B-cell stage IV lymphoma who presented with anterior pituitary hypofunction, without features of posterior pituitary involvement. He presented with a few months of postural dizziness and hypotension, weight loss, fever, strabismus of right eye and a s...
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...
APOE gene polymorphisms and susceptibility to Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.
We performed a meta-analysis. We used odds ratios (OR) with 95% confidence intervals (CI) to assess the strength of the association. The frequency of putative risk alleles in control subjects was estimated with the Mantel-Haenszel method. Cochran's Q statistic and the inconsistency index (I(2)) were...
MicroRNA as potential modulators in chemoresistant high-grade gliomas.
Gliomas account for 70% of human malignant primary brain tumours. The most common form is glioblastoma multiforme, World Health Organization grade IV. Despite the implementation of post-operative adjuvant radiotherapy with concurrent temozolomide (TMZ), the disease's overall prognosis remains dismal...
A clinicopathological study of the significance of the proportion of choroid morphology in chordoid meningioma.
We collected 26 surgical specimens from 17 patients who had a histological diagnosis of CM between January 1986 and June 2010. The chordoid elements constituted 30% to 98% of the area of the tumor. In 12 of 17 (70.6%) primary tumors, over 50% of the area displayed the chordoid pattern. Recurrence wa...
