BACKGROUND The value of intracranial electrodes such as depth electrodes and subdural grids for intracranial electroencephalographic (EEG) recording in patients with intractable epilepsies has been well recognized. A new technique, foramen ovale electrode (FOE) implantation, was first introduced by Wieser in 1984 for the lateralization of bilateral(More)
The treatment of five patients with dural arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) of the cavernous sinus via the superior ophthalmic vein (SOV) is reported. The procedure was performed by transcutaneous puncture of the SOV under the guidance of real-time digital subtraction angiography. Complete resolution of the ocular symptoms was achieved in all cases.(More)
Fourteen adults and 4 children with cystic craniopharyngiomas were treated with stereotactic beta-irradiation during a 6-year period. Of these patients, 10 were primary cases, and 8 were recurrences after previous major surgery. Radioactive phosphorus (32P) or yttrium (90Y) in colloidal forms were used as the radiation agents. Cyst volumes (10-130 ml) were(More)
A 38 year old male dentist developed an oligodendroglioma of the left medial temporal lobe and parasellar region 12 years after radiotherapy with 6600 rads of acromegaly. The 30 cases of radiation-induced gliomas reported in the English literature are reviewed and analysed. The criteria for defining radiation-induced tumours of the central nervous system(More)

A series of tests included CT of the brain, grading of the cognitive mental state with the mini-mental state examination; urodynamic studies, and gait evaluation. These tests were carried out on admission, and repeated on day 1, day 3, and day 5 after(More)
Two young men had similar nonobstructive idiopathic pachymeningitis cervicalis hypertrophica, causing chronic (13 and 11 years respectively) C8-T1 radiculomyelopathy proved by surgical and pathological findings. The preoperative Queckenstedt tests and myelography showed no evidence of CSF obstruction. These unusual findings contrast with previous reports(More)
