Between January 1941 and June 1989, 46 children below the age of 18 with an arteriovenous malformation (AVM) were managed. There were 7 patients with AVM diagnosed before the age of 2; 10 patients were diagnosed between the ages of 3 and 10; and 29 patients were diagnosed between 11 and 18. There were equal numbers of male and female patients. Twenty-five(More)
Previous investigations demonstrated that the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients contains antibodies that recognize specific neuronal populations in the adult rat central nervous system (CNS). These findings suggest a pathogenic role for immunological aberrations in this disorder. To determine if antibodies may provide a means(More)
This is a rare case of a teratocarcinoma developing at the same site one year after the gross total excision of a mature pineal teratoma. The malignant tumour arose probably from microscopic remnants of the teratoma. This patient also suffered from systemic lupus erythematosus. Autoimmune diseases have been associated with an increased risk of malignancy,(More)
BACKGROUND The management of large cerebral arteriovenous malformations is difficult. Surgical excision is often attempted after embolization. Interventional neuro-radiology is available in only a few centers. If large AVMs can be safely excised without pre-operative embolizaton, then these lesions can be treated at many neurosurgical centers. METHODS(More)
The best possible treatment for a single metastasis to the brain is complete surgical excision followed by whole brain irradiation. A survey was done to determine the proportion of patients with brain metastases who had surgical excision of the lesion. The number of patients with a preoperative diagnosis of cerebral metastases who underwent surgical(More)
With the current push towards using fewer antipsychotics and more non-pharmacological interventions in long-term care, it has become increasingly important for knowledge and best-practice sharing across the province.
