  1. Impact of advancing age on post-operative complications of deep brain stimulation surgery for essential tremor

    Journal of Clinical Neuroscience 22(5):872 (2015) PMID 25669119

    Essential tremor (ET) was the original indication for deep brain stimulation (DBS), with USA Food and Drug Administration approval since 1997. Despite the efficacy of DBS, it is associated with surgical complications that cause sub-optimal clinical outcomes. Given that ET is a progress...
  2. Glioblastoma in the setting of tuberous sclerosis

    Journal of Clinical Neuroscience 22(5):907 (2015) PMID 25677876

    Tuberous sclerosis is an autosomal dominant condition commonly manifesting with seizures, mental retardation, cortical tubers and hamartomas. Neoplasms may occasionally arise in this setting with the majority of these tumors being subependymal giant cell astrocytomas (World Health Orga...
  3. Complications of post-craniectomy cranioplasty: Risk factor analysis and implications for treatment planning

    Journal of Clinical Neuroscience 22(5):834 (2015) PMID 25827865

    The aim of this study was to review all post-craniectomy cranioplasties performed in a single institution, with an emphasis on procedure-related complications and risk factor analysis. Post-craniectomy cranioplasty is known to be associated with significant complications. Previous stud...
  4. Progressive post traumatic tearing of an arachnoid cyst membrane resulting in intracystic and subdural haemorrhage

    Journal of Clinical Neuroscience 22(5):897 (2015) PMID 25769260

    We report the case of a 43-year-old man with a middle cranial fossa arachnoid cyst who presented post trauma with neurological symptoms. The initial CT scan of the brain did not detect acute changes in the arachnoid cyst but subsequent imaging revealed abnormalities which progressed ov...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
