Radiation-induced meningiomas (RIM) are known to occur after high and low dose cranial radiation therapy. Currently, RIM are the most common form of radiation-induced neoplasm reported. We present the largest series of RIM induced by high dose radiation reported thus far and review the literature. Radiation therapy was most commonly given for childhood(More)
This retrospective study of medical records, surgical protocols, patient observation cards, and imaging files of 100 patients treated for subdural hematoma analyzed the type of hematoma, patient age and sex, operative technique, neurological status, cause of injury, duration of hospital stay, mortality rate, and the number of and reasons for reoperations to(More)
INTRODUCTION Spinal tumours may be classified in three groups: 1) extradural, 2) intradural extramedullary and 3) intramedullary spinal cord tumours. Intradural extramedullary tumours arise from the leptomeninges or nerve roots and include schwannomas. A schwannoma is usually a firm grey-whitish tumour growing near a nerve trunk or ramus. It can be(More)
BACKGROUND In patients with multiple myeloma (MM) there is a high risk of compression fractures of the spine. In the majority of cases, the method of treatment is percutaneous vertebroplasty (PV) or kyphoplasty (PK). The number of studies verifying their efficacy in MM is still relatively small. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study has been to assess medium-(More)
Journal of Neurosciences in Rural Practice | October December 2014 | Vol 5 | Issue 4 The art ic le by Alugolu [1] descr ibes atypical neurological presentation of the chronic subdural hematoma. This case confirms the statement that the medicine is not like mathematics. Sometimes radiological findings do not correlate with neurological symptoms. Every(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The aim of the study was to determine the efficacy of posterior spinal stabilization, combined with intraoperative vertebroplasty defined as intraoperative filling of instrumented vertebral bodies (VB) with polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). MATERIAL AND METHODS Seventeen patients with osteoporosis or osteopenia underwent posterior(More)
Neurobehavioral changes observed in patients with brain tumours may appear as cognitive deficits, mood disturbances, changes in behaviour or decreased adaptability (e.g., drowsiness, apathy, loss of spontaneity, fatigue). They are initially subtle, develop insidiously, and their severity often changes. Serious diagnostic problems can be caused by mood(More)
We present the operative technique employed in a young man with cervical spine luxation at the level of C6-C7 with clinical signs of damage to the spinal cord at the level of C5. In order to achieve an optimal therapeutic effect (decompression of neural structures and spinal stabilisation) during one surgical procedure, the positioning of the patient was(More)
I have read with interest the article by Farzanegan et al. (1). The authors focused on a very important aspect of quality-of-life assessment in lumbar discopathy patients following neurosurgical procedures. In their daily clinical practice, neurosurgeons by and large concentrate only on the presence of neurological deficits (paresis or paralysis) and pain,(More)
This paper presents a case of an unorthodox technique of screw fixation of an odontoid process fracture which consisted in simultaneous reposition of an odontoid process fracture from a posterior pharyngeal wall approach and direct screw fixation from a submandibular approach. A 53-year-old patient sustained an injury to the cervical spine. Radiographs and(More)
