OBJECT In this study, the authors report their experience with the surgical treatment of intracranial teratomas with an emphasis on the indications for delayed resection after oncological treatment. METHODS The authors retrospectively reviewed the cases of 14 children with intracranial teratomas. The mean age at diagnosis was 10.5 years (range 2 days-18(More)
The treatment of acromegaly is based on surgery, drugs, and radiotherapy as a third-line option. Fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (FSRT) is a new technique with a need for long-term evaluation. The purpose of the study was to evaluate long-term results of FSRT in acromegaly. Overall, 34 patients [sex ratio 1.12, age 45 (5-65) years] with a pituitary(More)
Spinal neurenteric cyst is a rare congenital lesion that may occur either alone or in the context of a complex malformative disorder. Our case is unusual because of its rare intramedullary location, the association with an important intrathoracic development, and the age of the child at presentation (1 month). An anterior approach through a right-sided(More)
UNLABELLED OBJECT.: The authors' objective was to evaluate the predictive value of preoperative axonal loss for peripheral visual field recovery after surgery for optic chiasm compression. METHODS Consecutive patients with optic chiasm compression in the period from October 2010 through August 2012 were retrospectively studied. Time-domain optical(More)
PURPOSE We discuss our experiences with fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (FSR) in the treatment of cavernous sinus meningiomas. METHODS AND MATERIALS From 1995 to 2006, we monitored 100 patients diagnosed with cavernous sinus meningiomas; 84 female and 16 male patients were included. The mean patient age was 56 years. The most common symptoms were a(More)
Tinnitus is a public health issue in France. Around 1% of the population is affected and 30,000 people are handicapped in their daily life. The treatments available for disabling tinnitus have until now been disappointing. We are reporting on the surgical treatment by electrical stimulation of the auditory cortex of a female patient affected by disabling(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe a rare case of tumoral cervical chondrocalcinosis that appeared 28 years after the patient had undergone suboccipital craniotomy. CLINICAL PRESENTATION A 42-year-old woman suffered from cervicalgia associated with a firm mass at the occipitocervical region. Plain x-ray and computed tomographic and magnetic resonance images revealed a(More)
Pituitary apoplexy (PA), defined by the occurrence of a massive hemorrhagic necrotic rearrangement within a pituitary adenoma, is rare. Its occurrence can be associated with certain risk factors, including anticoagulation. We report the first case of PA with rivaroxaban which is one of the new oral anticoagulants: a 73 year-old patient presenting with(More)
Our previous studies showed that intrafraction motion needs to be corrected for in frameless radiosurgery. This study was designed to evaluate if verification images can correct for mechanical inaccuracy and intrafraction motion. With proper immobilization and verification images on a regular basis during treatment, mechanical (table-) inaccuracies and(More)
