Fiber dissection techniques were used to study the limbic system, in particular the Papez circuit. The course, length and anatomical relations of the structures that make up the Papez circuit were delineated. Ten previously frozen and formalin-fixed cadaveric human brains were used, and dissected according to the fiber dissection techniques of Klingler et… (More)
The authors describe an alternative method of C1-2 joint distraction, reduction, and fixation in the treatment of 24 patients with fixed atlantoaxial dislocation. Based on their results, they conclude that there is a place for reduction of fixed atlantoaxial dislocation and subsequent fixation in a procedure that does not require removal of any osseous… (More)
RAID triple parity (RTP) is a new algorithm for protecting against three-disk failures. It is an extension of the double failure correction Row-Diagonal Parity code. For any number of data disks, RTP uses only three parity disks. This is optimal with respect to the amount of redundant information required and accessed. RTP uses XOR operations and stores all… (More)
Glioblastoma multiforme is the most common malignant brain tumor in adults. Metastasis of intracranial glioblastoma via the cerebrospinal fluid to the spine is a rare occurrence. We present two cases of glioblastoma multiforme with spinal leptomeningeal spread who presented with back pain and paraparesis.
OBJECTIVE Using a fiber-dissection technique, our aim is to study the fiber bundles of the optic radiation. We focused on the course, the length, anatomical relations with lateral ventricle and the relevance of these finding during surgery in the region. MATERIALS AND METHODS Five previously frozen and formalin-fixed cadaveric human brains were used. The… (More)
BACKGROUND Chudley McCullough syndrome is characterized by partial agenesis of the corpus callosum, interhemispheric cyst, cerebral and cerebellar cortical dysplasias, and hydrocephalus. This syndromic form of sensorineural hearing loss is rare. Our literature search has located 13 siblings in 6 families with this syndrome. We report a case of Chudley… (More)
AIM The association of single or multiple level cervical spondylotic disease with atlantoaxial instability is assessed. The implications of identifying and treating atlantoaxial instability in such an association are highlighted. MATERIALS AND METHODS The analysis is based on an experience with 11 patients treated during the period June 2013-June 2014.… (More)
