Methotrexate was developed as a cytostatic agent, but at low doses, it has shown potent anti-inflammatory activity. Previous studies have demonstrated that the anti-inflammatory effects of methotrexate are primarily mediated by the release of adenosine. In this study, we hypothesized that low-dose methotrexate has protective effects in spinal cord(More)
The goal of most acute therapies for spinal cord injury (SCI) in humans include attenuation of the early inflammatory response and may limit the extent of tissue injury and the consequent disability. The purpose of this study was to investigate the early effects of methothrexate (MTX) treatment on myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity, malondialdehyde (MDA) level,(More)
Vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) is an epithelium-lined communication between the urinary bladder and vagina. Most of VVFs are repaired by conventional open surgery. Laparoscopic repair of VVFs is rare and so far no report is available about laparoscopic repair of persistent VVF using fleece-bound sealing system as a tissue barrier in the literature. Here we(More)
Hydatid cysts of the posterior fossa are extremely rare. Intracranial hydatid cysts are more common in children and occur more frequently in the supratentorial space. A 7-year-old boy was admitted to the emergency department because of intense headache, nausea, vomiting, and progressive drowsiness that developed within the period of a week. On radiological(More)
Intradural spinal lipoma is rare and seen about 1% of all tumors of the spinal cord. Lipomas of the cervical location with intracranial extension are extremely rare and are described as intramedullary or subpial location. A 12-year-old female with lipoma of the cervicothoracic spinal cord demonstrated progressive quadriparesis. The patient underwent surgery(More)
Cavernous malformations (CM), also called cavernous angiomas and cavernomas, are lowflow vascular malformations that constitute 5-13% of all central nervous system vascular malformations (Moriarity et al., 1999; Raychaudhuri et al., 2005). On the other hand, IVC are rare pathological entities, constituting 2,5-10.8% of cerebral CM (Kivelev et al., 2010).(More)
