Intrinsic insular tumors are frequently excluded from surgical treatment. The authors propose a more extensive approach to these lesions based on the results of this prospective series. From September 1993 to January 1995, 30 patients (18 males and 12 females; mean age 42 years) harboring benign (15 patients) or malignant (15 patients) tumors involving the(More)
The histogenesis of oligoastrocytomas remains controversial, with some data arguing similarity of oligoastrocytomas to astrocytic tumors, and other data suggesting closer relationships with oligodendroglial neoplasms. Since the molecular genetic changes in astrocytomas differ from those of oligodendrogliomas, we characterized 120 astrocytic and(More)
In this article the authors report the case of a mixed cerebrovascular malformation in which a true arteriovenous malformation (AVM), harboring a nidus, is associated with a venous malformation that serves as the draining vein for the nidus. Despite the authors' preoperative rationale for exclusive extirpation of the AVM, an inadvertent injury and the(More)
Brain tumors pose a particular challenge to molecular oncology. Many different tumor entities develop in the nervous system and some of them appear to follow distinct pathogenic routes. Molecular genetic alterations have increasingly been reported in nervous system neoplasms. However, a considerable number of affected genes remain to be identified. We(More)
BACKGROUND Continuous external CSF drainage represents a well established procedure which has been improved by many technical contributions. We present our experience in a prospective study of 212 needle trephinations in 165 consecutive patients with a new screw fixation device. METHODS The entire procedure is performed at the bedside under local(More)
A significant number of patients with meningiomas develop multiple tumors without anatomical bridges. To understand the mechanism by which multiple meningiomas arise, the authors analyzed DNA from 39 multiple meningiomas in 12 patients to locate alterations in the neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) gene. This gene has been shown to be inactivated in(More)
Meningiomas are common intracranial and intraspinal tumors. They are treated primarily by surgical resection. Meningioma recurrence following surgery is frequent despite advances in microneurosurgery. However, it is not clear whether recurrent meningiomas, close or distant to the primary resection site, arise from incomplete resection, dissemination of(More)
1. The present study attempted to determine whether noradrenaline (NA) release in rabbit hippocampus and human neocortex is modulated by presynaptic 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) receptors. 2. Slices of rabbit hippocampus and human neocortex, loaded with [3H]-noradrenaline ([3H]-NA) were superfused and the effects of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) receptor ligands(More)
PURPOSE Transient cardiac ventricular dysfunction or sudden cardiac deaths have been reported for male athletes participating in marathon racing. Less is known about the myocardial response in females. We examined natriuretic peptides and cardiac troponins in female athletes after a marathon. METHODS At the 31st real,- Berlin Marathon plasma levels of(More)
Loss of heterozygosity (LOH) studies have emerged as a valuable indicator for tumor suppressor genes involved in the formation or progression of carcinomas. We here present data indicating that human chromosome 15 harbours a novel putative tumor suppressor gene which appears to play a role during later stages of carcinogenesis and which may be associated(More)
