The aim of the present study is to assess serum APRIL levels in SLE patients versus rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients and normal control and to correlate serum APRIL levels in SLE patients with disease activity indices. Serum APRIL levels was measured in 40 SLE patients, 20 patients with RA and 20 healthy volunteers who served as control group. Disease(More)
Every neurosurgeon ought to be acquainted with the basics of research methods to enhance the comprehension of the research process and critical appraisal procedures of a scientific write-up. This in turn will ensure the appropriate application of scientific knowledge to patient care. Recent publications reveal that a significant proportion of articles(More)
OBJECT The primary concern when performing Gamma Knife surgery for pituitary adenoma is preservation of vision and pituitary function while achieving tumor growth control. Higher prescribed radiation doses are typically correlated with higher incidences of postradiosurgical hormone deficiencies. The goal of the present study was to retrospectively analyze(More)
Objective: To assess the feasibility of anterior cervical procedures in the treatment of C5 palsy occurring after posterior cervical decompression procedures done for the treatment of cervical spondylotic myelopathy. Introduction: In this study we hypothesized that anterior cervical decompression would benefit these patients through widening the cervical(More)
The anterior visual pathway (AVP) can be at risk during gamma knife surgery (GKS). There is no standardised published methodology for protecting the AVP. This paper suggests such an approach in relation to the treatment of meningiomas. There were 67 patients with a mean age of 48.8 years and a minimum follow-up of 25 months. A recent perimetry was available(More)
OBJECTIVE Because of their critical and central location, it is deemed necessary to fractionate when considering irradiating optic pathway/hypothalamic gliomas. Stereotactic fractionated radiotherapy is considered safer when dealing with gliomas in this location. In this study, the safety and efficacy of single-session stereotactic radiosurgery for optic(More)
BACKGROUND Tectal gliomas are present in a critical location that makes their surgical treatment difficult. Stereotactic radiosurgery presents an attractive noninvasive treatment option. However, tectal gliomas are also commonly associated with aqueductal obstruction and consequently hydrocephalus. This necessitates some form of CSF diversion procedure(More)
