Somatoparaphrenia patients complain of a feeling of strangeness affecting the contralateral body parts and present a delusional belief that the affected body parts belong to someone else. Patients may also(More)
UNLABELLED The laminoplasty technique was devised by Hirabayashi in 1978 for patients diagnosed with multilevel cervical spondylotic myelopathy. OBJECTIVE To describe an easy modification of Hirabayashi's method and present the clinical and radiological results from a five-year follow-up study. METHOD AND RESULTS Eighty patients had 5 levels of(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the right and left sides of the same skulls as far as the described landmarks are concerned, and establish the craniometric differences between them. METHOD We carried out measurements in 50 adult dry human skulls comparing both sides. RESULTS The sigmoid sinus width at the sinodural angle level was larger on the right side in 78%(More)
OBJECTIVE Surgery for brain aneurysms is technically demanding. In recent years, the process to learn the technical skills necessary for these challenging procedures has been affected by a decrease in the number of surgical cases available and progressive restrictions on resident training hours. To overcome these limitations, surgical simulators such as(More)
BACKGROUND Neurosurgery, a demanding specialty, involves many microsurgical procedures that require complex skills, including open surgical treatment of intracranial aneurysms. Simulation or practice models may be useful for acquiring these skills before trainees perform surgery on human patients. OBJECTIVE To describe a human placenta model for the(More)
OBJECT The development of neurointerventional treatments of central nervous system disorders has resulted in the need for adequate training environments for novice interventionalists. Virtual simulators offer anatomical definition but lack adequate tactile feedback. Animal models, which provide more lifelike training, require an appropriate infrastructure(More)
