Embryonic tumor with abundant neuropil and true rosettes (ETANTR) is a very aggressive rare tumor with unique histologic and molecular features occurring in very young children. At present approximately 80 cases of ETANTR have been documented in the literature since first description in 2000. We report seven patients with ETANTR below 4 years of age who(More)
OBJECTIVE to develop the algorithm for defining the amount of posterior decompression of the craniovertebral junction in children with syringomyelia combined with Chiari-1 malformation. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixty eight children with syringomyelia and Chiari-1 malformation, under age of 18 years, underwent posterior decompression of the craniovertebral(More)
The efficiency of endoscopic ventriculostomy (EVS) of the third ventricle is noticeably lower in small children than in adults and many surgeons prefer to shunt them despite the fact that revision has to be resorted to in half of the cases. Recent reports on the successful use of EVS in infants under 2 years of age have made the authors to revise(More)
In this case report, we describe the use of expansive suboccipital cranioplasty in Chiari-1 malformation. The technique improves the efficacy and safety of treatment for Chiari-1 malformation. The technique can be used as an adjunct treatment together with any variant of posterior fossa decompression, including duroplasty and extradural decompression.
OBJECTIVE to describe cerebrospinal fluid dynamics in chronic obstructive hydrocephalus before and after successful endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV). MATERIALS AND METHODS 8 patients (7-21 years old) with chronic obstructive hydrocephalus due to tectal plate glioma were investigated before and after successful ETV. Apart from clinical and MRI(More)
The study was undertaken to elucidate the poor outcomes of endoscopic ventriculostomy of the third ventricle (EVTV), including complications and dysfunctions. A series of 249 consecutive EVTV (the mean age of 15 years in 247 patients) made at the Institute of Neurosurgery in 1995 to 2003 was analyzed. The causes of hydrocephalus were benign tumors in 95(More)
AIM The study objective was to develop a rational approach for defining the extent of posterior decompression in children with Chiari 1 malformation. MATERIAL AND METHODS Posterior decompression was performed in 76 children with Chiari 1 malformation, under 18 years of age, in the period between 2001 and 2015. Fifty two (68%) children had syringomyelia.(More)
Theoretical and practical aspects of the complex treatment of brain and spinal vascular diseases using microsurgical, endovascular and radiosurgical methods are considered. Authors present the data demonstrating that, due to the implementation of the program of development of vascular centers in the Russian Federation, considerable progress was made in the(More)
Aim of the study was to demonstrate the possibility of effective surgical revascularization of the brain in children with moya-moya disease. 3 year old girl with moya-moya disease underwent encephalo-duro-arteriosynangiosis. At 14 months follow-up signs and symptoms of cerebral ischemia totally resolved. Angiography confirmed brain supply from external(More)
