Posterior fossa morphometry in symptomatic pediatric and adult Chiari I malformation
TLDR
The authors provide a simple, yet accurate, and reproducible method of comparison of posterior fossa volume in patients with CMI in different age groups, based on linear measurements, which shows no significant difference between the length of the occipital bone in pediatric CMI patients and the normal pediatric population. Expand
Coexisting intracranial tumors with pituitary adenomas: genetic association or coincidence?
TLDR
Three rare cases of intracranial tumors associated with pituitary adenomas were reported: a prolactinoma and a thyrotropin secreting adenoma, and two of the associated intrACranial neoplasms were gliomas and one was a meningioma. Expand
Adult medulloblastoma and the “dural-tail” sign: Rare mimic of a posterior petrous meningioma
TLDR
Clinical and radiological features of a 32-year-old male patient with a posterior fossa lesion resembled an extra-axial lesion; a meningioma, with attachment to the tentorium and petrous bone, and the histological diagnosis was classical medulloblastoma. Expand
Surgical management of thalamic gliomas: case selection, technical considerations, and review of literature
TLDR
Radical resection of thalamic gliomas is a useful treatment modality in a select subset of patients and is the treatment of choice for pilocytic astrocytomas. Expand
Paraspinal muscle morphometry in cervical spondylotic myelopathy and its implications in clinicoradiological outcomes following central corpectomy: clinical article.
TLDR
Patients with CSM demonstrate significant atrophy in all the flexor and extensor paraspinal muscles, and also suffer a reduction in the protective effect of a strong DF/DE CSA ratio, a physiological mechanism based on DF dysfunction is discussed. Expand
Lumbar paraspinal muscle morphometry and its correlations with demographic and radiological factors in adult isthmic spondylolisthesis: a retrospective review of 120 surgically managed cases.
TLDR
Compared with normative controls, patients with IS suffer selective atrophy of their MF muscle, whereas their ES muscle undergoes a compensatory hypertrophy, indicating the role of this deep stabilizer in the biomechanical stability of spondylolisthetic spines. Expand
Congenital giant plexiform neurofibroma with occipital calvarial dysplasia in association with meningoencephalocele in neurofibromatosis Type 1 and segmental neurofibromatosis: report of 2 cases.
TLDR
The authors present these 2 unusual cases of GPNF associated with occipital dysplasia with a review of literature and discuss the radiological findings, theories of etiopathogenesis of the OD, and management dilemmas. Expand
Diagnostic and clinical implications of pituicytoma
TLDR
The radiological features that help distinguish this low-grade tumor from other sellar and parasellar tumors are discussed along with its distinct histological findings. Expand
Morphometric analysis of foramen magnum dimensions and intracranial volume in pediatric Chiari I malformation
TLDR
An individualized cross-sectional assessment of the foramen magnum in relation to the hindbrain tissue in the same plane is required to study the initiation and propagation of the Chiari I symptomatology. Expand
The use of image guidance in avoiding vascular injury during trans-sphenoidal access and decompression of recurrent pituitary adenomas.
TLDR
With the use of modalities like Doppler sonography and neuronavigation, the position of the ICA can be determined accurately in all cases and the role of image-guided surgery in avoiding complications is outlined. Expand
