INTRODUCTION The Wada test has been the gold standard for testing cerebral language localisation during presurgical investigation in the past decades. However, during the last few years a shift has occurred in epilepsy surgery programmes towards the use of non-invasive methods, predominantly functional MRI (fMRI). However, Wada tests are still performed,(More)
This study describes the existence and the clinical and electrophysiological features of multi-focal cortical dysplasia in epilepsy patients. Five patients with intractable focal epilepsy are reported. All patients underwent invasive presurgical video-electroencephalography monitoring. Localization of dysplastic areas was based on high-resolution magnetic(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Cervical transforaminal blocks are frequently performed to treat cervical radicular pain. These blocks are performed mostly under fluoroscopy, but a CT-guided technique has also been described. The aim of this study was to review the results of CT-guided CSNRB by using a dorsal approach, to describe the contrast patterns achieved with(More)
Dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) of the hypoglossal canal (HCDAVFs) are rare and display a complex angiographic anatomy. Hitherto, they have been referred to as various entities (for example, "marginal sinus DAVFs") solely described in case reports or small series. In this in-depth review of HCDAVF, the authors describe clinical and imaging findings, as(More)
BACKGROUND Bilateral traumatic carotid cavernous fistulas (CCFs) are rare and may dilate the cavernous sinus. We present a case of brainstem compression caused by a cavernous sinus dilated by the arterial pressure of bilateral CCF. CLINICAL PRESENTATION A 30-year-old man suffered severe head trauma in a motorbike accident. Hemodynamically relevant,(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess reperfusion and clinical outcome of treatment with the self-expanding retrievable Separator 3D in revascularization of acute ischemic stroke. The three-dimensional (3D) device secures thrombus with direct aspiration and supports debulking of the clot. METHODS At two centers, 129 consecutive stroke patients(More)
We present the case of a woman age 54 with clear-cell renal cell cancer (ccRCC), who developed metastases in multiple organs including one brain metastasis (gyrus cinguli). She was treated with pazopanib and the solitary brain metastasis was irradiated with 30 Gy in July 2013. In February 2014, after 8-month treatment with pazopanib, this metastasis(More)
We present a 49-year-old male who suffered a cerebellar infarction due to a vertebral artery dissection. The patient had taken sildenafil daily for at least 2 years for sexual enhancement. There was no sexual intercourse or traumatic event prior to symptom onset. Sildenafil intake has been associated with aortic dissection and, in the light of this report,(More)
