CT-guided stereotactic percutaneous destructive procedures, i.e. percutaneous cordotomy, trigeminal tractotomy, and extralemniscal myelotomy, have been routinely used for the treatment of localized intractable pain in malignancy since 1987. In 67 cases if local pain due to malignancy, CT guided percutaneous cordotomy was performed and in 97% complete pain(More)
Percutaneous bilateral cordotomy performed using conventional techniques may cause the patient to develop sleep-induced apnea due to bilateral destruction of the ventrolateral reticulospinal tract. Computerized tomography (CT)-guided percutaneous cordotomy using a newly designed needle electrode system has the advantages of safe, selective, and controlled(More)
AIM There have been several treatment modalities to reduce the volume of the syringomyelic cavity and the pressure on the brainstem in Chiari Malformation Type I (CM-I). Foramen magnum decompression with and without duroplasty were compared in this retrospective study. MATERIAL AND METHODS From 2003 to 2006, 27 patients suffering from CMI were operated on(More)
AIM The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of prior splenectomy on oxidative stress and neuronal loss following spinal cord ischemia and reperfusion injury. MATERIAL AND METHODS Twenty-one Sprague Dawley rats were randomly divided into three groups as sham laparatomy (n=7), spinal cord ischemia/reperfusion (SCIR) injury (n=7)(More)
The objective of this study is to study the anatomy of lumbar plexus on human fetuses and to establish its morphometric characteristics and differences compared with adults. Twenty lumbar plexus of 10 human fetal cadavers in different gestational ages and genders were dissected. Lumbar spinal nerves, ganglions, and peripheral nerves were exposed. Normal(More)
AIM Traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by a gunshot wound is a complex injury with a broad spectrum of symptoms and high rates of mortality and morbidity. This study presents an evaluation of TBI caused by gunshot wounds presenting at a single institution and discusses possible predictive factors for the outcome of surgical intervention. MATERIAL AND(More)
BACKGROUND Colloid cysts (CCs) are rarely found in the sellar-suprasellar region. Differential diagnosis of CCs is more challenging in this region because many other cystic lesions may locate or invade sellar or suprasellar structures. We present a large and unusual case of sellar-suprasellar CC with extension into the suprasellar, interpeduncular, and(More)
AIM Misplacement of pedicle screw is the serious complication of spinal surgeries. Intraoperative imaging techniques and navigation systems are currently in use for the prevention of this complication. The aim of this study was to document the results of our experience with the navigation and intraoperative imaging technique and to share our experience with(More)
AIM To present a new simple disposable tubular retractor which provides fully endoscopic resections of the intraaxial brain lesions. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 13 patients underwent surgical resection of an intraaxial brain lesion larger than 3 cm with a fully endoscopic approach using the navigation-guided pediatric anoscope. The anoscope was(More)
BACKGROUND The procedure of reconstruction after the removal of cranial fibrous dysplasia (FD) must be precise to achieve good functional and aesthetic results. Intraoperative modeling of implants is difficult and may cause cosmetic disturbances. OBJECTIVE To present our experience with the treatment of cranial FD using preoperative computer-based(More)
