  1. A rare marginal tentorial artery to ophthalmic artery anastomosis

    Journal of Clinical Neuroscience 22(4):773 (2015) PMID 25669118

    We report a patient with a marginal tentorial artery to ophthalmic artery anastomosis. A middle-aged man presented with subarachnoid hemorrhage and underwent angiography, where selective microcatheter injection of the meningohypophyseal trunk and marginal tentorial artery revealed a co...
  2. Intrasellar pilocytic astrocytomas: Clinical, imaging, pathological, and surgical findings

    Journal of Clinical Neuroscience 22(4):653 (2015) PMID 25560386

    A pilocytic astrocytoma is not usually considered in the differential diagnosis of an intrasellar tumor. An awareness of this tumor as primarily an intrasellar entity is important to avoid confusion during its diagnosis. We retrospectively examined the records of 631 patients treated a...
  3. Intrasellar ependymoma: Clinical, imaging, pathological, and surgical findings

    Journal of Clinical Neuroscience 22(4):638 (2015)

    Ependymomas arising in the intrasellar compartment are extremely rare and most often are not included in the differential diagnosis of an intrasellar tumor mass. We review the literature to further advance awareness regarding unusual presentations of this type of tumor and present an i...
  4. Treatment of leptomeningeal carcinomatosis: Current challenges and future opportunities

    Journal of Clinical Neuroscience 22(4):632 (2015)

    Leptomeningeal metastasis (LM) in breast cancer patients confers a uniformly poor prognosis and decreased quality of life. Treatment options are limited and often ineffective, due in large part to limitations imposed by the blood–brain barrier and the very aggressive nature of this dis...
  5. A novel mutation in GJB1 (c.212T>G) in a Chinese family with X-linked Charcot–Marie–Tooth disease

    Journal of Clinical Neuroscience 22(3):513 (2015) PMID 25595958

    Gap junction protein beta 1 (GJB1) gene mutations lead to X-linked Charcot–Marie–Tooth (CMTX) disease. We investigated a Chinese family with CMTX and identified a novel GJB1 point mutation. Clinical and electrophysiological features of the pedigree were examined, and sequence alteratio...
  6. Rapid growth of an infectious intracranial aneurysm with catastrophic intracranial hemorrhage

    Journal of Clinical Neuroscience 22(3):603 (2015) PMID 25455738

    Infectious intracranial aneurysms are rare vascular lesions that classically occur in patients with infective endocarditis. We present a 49-year-old man with altered mental status and headache with rapid growth and rupture of an infectious intracranial aneurysm with catastrophic intrac...
  7. Clinical impact of molecular biomarkers in gliomas

    Journal of Clinical Neuroscience 22(3):437 (2015) PMID 25533211

    The World Health Organization (WHO) classification system for glial tumors provides guidance as to the predicted course of the disease and choice of treatment. However, histologically identical tumors may have a very different outcome and response to treatment. Molecular markers that c...
  8. Cost analysis of spinal and general anesthesia for the surgical treatment of lumbar spondylosis

    Journal of Clinical Neuroscience 22(3):539 (2015) PMID 25510535

    Lumbar spine surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia, although spinal anesthesia can also be used. Given the prevalence of lumbar spine surgery, small differences in cost between the two anesthetic techniques have the potential to make a large impact on overall healthca...
  9. Successful treatment of open jaw and jaw deviation dystonia with botulinum toxin using a simple intraoral approach

    Journal of Clinical Neuroscience 22(3):594 (2015) PMID 25541097

    Oromandibular dystonia (OMD) is a focal dystonia that involves the mouth, jaw, and/or tongue. It can be classified as idiopathic, tardive dystonia or secondary to other neurological disorders and subdivided into jaw opening, jaw closing, jaw deviation and lip pursing. The muscles invol...
  10. Open-door versus French-door laminoplasty for the treatment of cervical multilevel compressive myelopathy

    Journal of Clinical Neuroscience 22(3):450 (2015) PMID 25523126

    Open-door laminoplasty (ODL) and French-door laminoplasty (FDL) are used to treat cervical multilevel compressive myelopathy. However, differences in outcome between the approaches remain unknown. To investigate treatment differences, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis....
