Distal anterior cerebral artery (ACA) aneurysms are rare, and constitute approximately 1.5% to 9% of all intracranial aneurysms. They show some unique features compared with other aneurysms in the cerebral circulation and are frequently treated with a different technique. Twenty-six of 364 patients with cerebral aneurysms treated at our department between(More)
We tested the hypothesis that 5 cm H2O of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) reduces the incidence of pneumocephalus in patients who undergo spinal intradural tumor surgery. Fifty-three ASA I to III patients who underwent thoracolumbar intradural tumor surgery between the years 2003 and 2006 were included in this study. All patients received propofol,(More)
A 52-year-old woman presented with bilateral distal anterior cerebral artery (ACA) mirror aneurysms, in addition to two right middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysms. The left distal ACA and right MCA aneurysms were clipped through right interhemispheric and right pterional craniotomies. The right distal ACA aneurysm was thrombosed. Distal ACA aneurysms tend(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Spinal arachnoid cysts are rare lesions, accounting for only 1% of all primary spinal mass lesions. They can occur in extradural, intradural, or intramedullary locations. The extradural cysts are thought to arise from defects in the dura mater through which the arachnoid herniates. This report presents 10 cases of spinal extradural(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to retrospectively analyse the clinical, radiological features and surgical outcome of pineal epidermoid tumors treated at a single neurosurgical department. MATERIAL AND METHODS We performed surgery on five patients with pineal region epidermoid tumors at a single neurosurgical department between the years 1998 and 2006.(More)
BACKGROUND We compared the effect of temporary aneurysm clips on atherosclerotic and nonatherosclerotic CCA of rabbits by morphometric and ultrastructural methods. METHODS The rabbits (N = 12) were divided into 2 groups: the first group was fed a 2% cholesterol diet, and the second group, a normal diet for 4 weeks. Atherosclerotic lesions developed after(More)
