INTRODUCTION The gold standard for diagnosis of central nervous system vasculitis (CNSV) is cerebral biopsy. Cerebral angiography, however, has become a common diagnostic tool for workup of this disease. Few analyses have been performed which examine the value of angiography as a stand-alone diagnostic entity or the value of cerebral biopsy in the setting(More)
Pseudoaneurysms of the superficial temporal artery are rare and may be treated by manual compression, surgical intervention, coil embolization, or percutaneous thrombin injection. We present a novel technique of local ultrasound guided low-profile coil embolization of the superficial temporal artery with both satisfactory cosmetic and surgical results.
Upper cervical synchondrosis fractures are the most common types of cervical fractures in the pediatric population less than 7 years of age (Blauth et al (Eur Spine J 5:63-70, 1996); Connolly et al (Pediatr Radiol 25(Suppl1):S129-133, 1995); Mandabach et al (Pediatr Neurosurg 19(5):225-232, 1993); Schippers et al (Acta Neurochir 138:524-530, 1990)) The vast(More)
Cerebellar hemangioblastomas are rare tumors of the neuraxis. Only seven cases of hemangioblastoma associated with a cerebral aneurysm have been reported. We report a case of a patient who presented with acute onset headache as a result of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and hydrocephalus. Radiographic workup revealed a hemangioblastoma with an intratumoral(More)
BACKGROUND A reliable method to specifically identify low vasospasm risk in aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) patients has not been previously proposed. OBJECTIVE To develop a clinical algorithm using admission aSAH clinical severity and subarachnoid blood distribution to identify patients at low risk of clinical vasospasm. METHODS Clinical(More)
OBJECTIVE The anatomic area exposed through exposure of Trautmann triangle may not be sufficient. We studied the additional exposure provided by skeletonizing the sigmoid sinus (SS). METHODS In 5 human cadaveric heads, thin-cut computed tomography images of 2 sides of the temporal bone were obtained for a total of 10 sides. The estimated surgical working(More)
OBJECTIVE Laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT), sometimes referred to as "stereotactic laser ablation," has demonstrated utility in a subset of high-risk surgical patients with difficult to access (DTA) intracranial neoplasms. However, the treatment of tumors larger than 10 cm3 is associated with suboptimal outcomes and morbidity. This may limit the(More)
Lymphangiomatosis is a rare congenital disorder that results in multiorgan system lymphatic invasion. Symptoms due to axial skeletal involvement can range from chronic bone pain to severe deformity resulting in radiculopathy, myelopathy, and even paralysis. The authors present a case of lymphangiomatosis of the clivus, C-1, and C-2, resulting in chronic(More)
