A case of rheumatoid arthritis of the temporomandibular joint with enlargement of both coronoid processes has been presented. Limited excursions of the mandible were due mainly to the encroachment of the coronoid processes on the posterolateral surfaces of the maxilla. The condition was relieved by unilateral arthroplasty and bilateral coronoidectomies. The(More)
Eight cases of chronic dislocation treated by bilateral reductions of the articular eminence have been reviewed. The technique has been found useful when indicated. Good surgical technique with meticulous attention to detail is required. The entire eminence must be removed and the surface left smooth. As with any TMJ disorder or surgery, concomitant local(More)
This study explored the use of non-radioactive 2-deoxy glucose (2DG)-labeled magnetonanoparticles (MNP) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to detect functional activity during rest, peripheral stimulation, and epileptic seizures, in animal models. Non-radioactive 2DG was covalently attached to magnetonanoparticles composed of iron oxide and dextran and(More)
BACKGROUND Phase-contrast MRI (PC-MRI) has previously been used for the quantification of CSF and blood flow throughout the body. We propose a new method of semi-automated segmentation for the prepontine cistern based on anatomical and pulsatility information. METHODS Scans were conducted on 48 patients (69.83 ± 14.28 years) ranging in age from 32 to 88(More)
The development of nonradioactive and targeted magnetonanoparticles (MNP) capable of crossing the blood–brain barrier (BBB) and of concentrating in and enhancing the contrast of intracranial tumors on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Nonradioactive 2-deoxy-d-glucose (2DG) was covalently attached to magnetonanoparticles composed of iron oxide and dextran(More)
A review of 55 high condylectomies is presented with a discussion of diagnosis, rationale, technique, some simultaneous problems, and complications. An average two-year follow-up shows good results, and the procedure is thought to be useful when indicated. Many of our respondents, who classified themselves as improved, were actually cured of their(More)
In pre-neurosurgery language mapping it is critical to identify language-specific regions in multilingual speakers. We conducted pre-operative functional magnetic resonance imaging, and intraoperative language mapping in the unique case of a highly proficient quadrilingual with a left frontal brain tumor who acquired her second language at age 5, and her(More)
The case presented here represents an aggressive form of polyostotic fibrous dysplasia. Because of lack of evidence to substantiate precocious puberty and abnormal pigmentation, Albright syndrome cannot be established. Because of the nature of this disease, its clinical course and prognosis are unpredictable. However, it is believed that continued growth of(More)
