Pharyngo-occipital artery variant arising proximal to occluded internal carotid artery: The risk of an unnecessary endarterectomy.
We present a case of pharyngo-occipital artery arising proximal from an occluded ICA that was missed and confused for severe stenosis of the ICA, leading to the misguided indication for carotid endarterectomy. Advanced preoperative studies allowed timely recognition of this anomaly and reconsiderati...
Popliteus muscle hemorrhage as a rare cause of a proximal tibial neuropathy.
We report a patient who presented with a tibial neuropathy following a leg injury, which initially mimicked a lumbosacral radiculopathy but which was the result of a proximal tibial neuropathy. Electrophysiologic studies confirmed a proximal tibial neuropathy and MRI revealed a popliteus muscle hemo...
An audit of immunohistochemical marker patterns in meningioma.
We have prospectively studied a panel of markers as a routine in order to obtain data of individual expression of markers that may provide targets for anti-receptor treatment. One hundred and seventy-five consecutive patients operated on for meningiomas between 2005 and 2008 were prospectively analy...
The Christchurch earthquake stroke incidence study.
We examined the impact of major earthquakes on acute stroke admissions by a retrospective review of stroke admissions in the 6weeks following the 4 September 2010 and 22 February 2011 earthquakes. The control period was the corresponding 6weeks in the previous year. In the 6weeks following the Septe...
Familial colloid cyst.
Colloid cysts of the third ventricle are rare benign tumours that can present as symptomatic hydrocephalus or be an incidental finding on imaging. This report presents familial colloid cysts found in a mother and daughter. Prior examples of familial colloid cysts are also reviewed and suggestions re...
Anterior pseudoarthrectomy for symptomatic Bertolotti's syndrome.
We present two patients with severe symptomatic L5/S1 pseudoarthroses that were successfully excised via an anterior retroperitoneal approach with 2 year clinical and radiological follow-up. The literature regarding surgical treatments for Bertolotti's syndrome is reviewed. The technique for an ante...
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...
Atypical atlanto-axial subluxation
Intracerebral hemorrhage following intravenous thrombolysis in Thai patients with acute ischemic stroke.
In Asia, there is limited information regarding symptomatic intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) in patients treated with intravenous (iv) recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA). The aim of this study was to identify independent factors associated with symptomatic ICH following iv...
Three-dimensional anatomical accuracy of cranial models created by rapid prototyping techniques validated using a neuronavigation station
We have developed a technique using an industrial, rapid prototyping process from which accurate spatial models of the cranium, its contents and pathology can be reproduced for teaching. We were able to register, validate and navigate using these models with common available navigation systems such...
