PURPOSE By evaluating the postoperative facial nerve function of large acoustic neuromas, the purpose of this study was to analyze the factors that influence the facial nerve function outcome and to explore the surgical strategy for large acoustic neuromas. METHODS A retrospective study of surgical outcome was performed on 89 patients with large acoustic(More)
OBJECT To explore the therapeutic effect of multiple burr hole operation combined with dural inversion and periosteal synangiosis for moyamoya disease (MMD). METHODS We used a modified multiple burr hole operation, combined with dural inversion and periosteal synangiosis, in a series of 57 patients with ischemic-type MMD as a sole revascularization(More)
The current study aimed to summarise the clinical features and classifications of vertebral artery dissecting aneurysms (VADAs) to optimise strategies for endovascular interventional therapy. The clinical features and results of 31 inpatients with VADA were retrospectively analysed. The aneurysms were classified according to their location and association(More)
Amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI) is a transitional stage between normal cognitive aging and Alzheimer's disease. Previous studies have found that neuronal activity and functional connectivity impaired in many functional networks, especially in the default mode network (DMN), which is related to significantly impaired cognitive and memory functions(More)
AIM We assessed the safety and effectiveness of the Enterprise stent in treating atherosclerotic intracranial arterial stenosis (AIAS). MATERIAL AND METHODS This was a retrospective study conducted with 60 consecutive patients with 62 AIAS lesions who received the Enterprise stent at the Department of Neurosurgery, Second Hospital of Shandong University(More)
OBJECTIVE Vertebrobasilar dissecting aneurysm (VBDA) management is challenging despite the availability of multiple treatment strategies. We reviewed our experiences using endovascular treatment for VBDA patients to assess the efficacy and safety of several VBDA treatment strategies. METHODS Assisted by intra-arterial digital subtraction angiography, 35(More)
OBJECTIVE Current treatment of apnea attributable to acute tonsillar herniation often is inadequate. This study was undertaken to verify the clinical usefulness of normal saline injection via lumbar puncture for the treatment of apnea secondary to acute tonsillar herniation. METHODS Between 1969 and 2009, 45 patients who had not regained spontaneous(More)
BACKGROUND Hydrocephalus provides challenging management decisions because of multiple VP shunt failures. Ventriculoperitoneal shunt failure requires urgent management and surgical intervention. We reviewed the outcome of 6 patients who received a conversion from VP to IVA shunt with 8F percutaneous catheter introducer set after previous multiple VP(More)
BACKGROUND It has been reported that various types of axonal injury of hypothalamo-neurohypophyseal tract can result in degeneration of the magnocellular neurons (MCNs) in hypothalamus and development of central diabetes insipidus (CDI). However, the mechanism of the degeneration and death of MCNs after hypophysectomy in vivo is still unclear. This present(More)
