BACKGROUND Posttraumatic posterior fossa epidural hygroma is a rare entity, and a clear management has not been established in the medical literature. We present 1 case and review the literature relevant to this unusual entity. The mechanism of formation and management of posterior cranial fossa epidural hygroma are also outlined. CASE DESCRIPTION A(More)
BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE Spinal cord oligodendrogliomas are rare tumors, with a reported incidence varying between 0.8% and 4.7% of all spinal cord tumors and just over 50 cases reported in the literature. Of these, only 9 cases are histologically defined as anaplastic oligodendrogliomas, with few having complete molecular characterization. The diffuse(More)
Isolated bilateral abducens nerve palsy raises concern about a serious intracranial condition. Abducens nerve palsy is a common isolated palsy due to its susceptibility to injury along its long course. Non-traumatic isolated abducens nerve palsy is often caused by a mass that indirectly stretches and compresses the nerve. Pathological processes directly(More)
Cerebral aneurysms are rare in the pediatric population, making a definitive treatment algorithm difficult. Microsurgical clipping is the first choice for treatment but is not always feasible, while high recurrence rates and radiation exposure make endovascular options less favorable. Extracranial-intracranial (EC-IC) bypass, though not commonly performed(More)
OBJECTIVE Patient demographic characteristics, hospital volume, and admission status have been shown to impact surgical outcomes of sellar region tumors in adults; however, the data available following the resection of craniopharyngiomas in the pediatric population remain limited. The authors sought to identify potential risk factors associated with(More)
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) electrodes have been used effectively to perform radiofrequency lesions in the brain. This study aimed to characterize lesion geometry and peak tissue temperature achieved when lesioning through DBS electrodes. Fresh bovine liver was chosen for a medium as the tissue reliably changes color between 45 and 50 °C. Medtronic 3387(More)
