OBJECTIVE To evaluate the neuroprotection of mild hypothermia, applied in different moments, in temporary focal cerebral ischemia in rats. METHODS Rats was divided into Control (C), Sham (S), Ischemic-control(IC), Pre-ischemic Hypothermia (IH1), Intra-ischemic Hypothermia (IH2), and Post-ischemic Hypothermia (IH3) groups. Morphometry was performed using(More)
BACKGROUND Traffic accidents constitute the main cause of death in the first decades of life. Traumatic brain injury is the event most responsible for the severity of these accidents. The SBN started an educational program for the prevention of traffic accidents, adapted from the American model "Think First" to the Brazilian environment, since 1995, with(More)
BACKGROUND Anaplastic astrocytomas (AA) and glioblastomas (GB) are the most common malignant gliomas, and despite newly developed drugs and combined treatments, they still have an adverse prognosis. Paclitaxel is a cytotoxic agent with radiosensitizing properties and exerts objective growth inhibition in glioma tumor cells. PATIENTS AND METHODS From 1998(More)
A personal series (in 94% of the cases) of 102 children who underwent 170 procedures (1.66 procedures/patient) for hydrocephalus has been followed for 5 1/2 years (Jan-83 to June-88). Most of the children were under two years of age (80%) and in these cases brain sonography was the examination of choice for both diagnosis and follow-up (307 examinations,(More)
The chart of 3468 patients with head injury assisted in the Hospital das Clínicas-Ribeirão Preto Medical School, from 1990 through 1992 were analyzed aiming to determine their main characteristics. Regarding sex, there was predominance of male. Accidental fall among children and traffic accidents among adults were the main causes of trauma. Daily(More)
UNLABELLED Atypical/anaplastic (World Health Organization (WHO) grades II and III) are less common and have poorer outcomes than benign meningiomas. This study aimed to analyze the outcome of patients with these tumors. METHOD Overall/recurrence-free survivals (RFS) and the Karnofsky Performance Scale of 52 patients with grades II (42) and III (9)(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effectiveness of an educational program on improvement of fatigue and quality of life of patients with high-grade glioma during radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment. METHOD This is a longitudinal, experimental study. Twenty-three patients with high-grade glioma were randomly assigned to one of two groups. Both groups completed(More)
We describe the case of a patient presenting a right parietal mass lesion with an heterogeneous aspect on computed tomography, with hyperdense contrast uptake areas and hypodense areas with fat density. The unusual aspect of the lesion prevented preoperative and intraoperative diagnosis. The final histopathological examination revealed a meningothelial(More)
