Cerebral rhabdomyosarcoma is a highly aggressive tumor with poor prognosis affecting children and, rarely, adults. The authors describe the case of a patient treated for primary fronto-parietal embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma with a long survival (30 months after surgery) and no clinical or radiological evidence of recurrence and discuss the chemotherapy applied(More)
The clinical findings in 31 patients with chronic subdural haematoma (CSH), aged between 20 and 50, are described. Aetiopathogenetic factors responsible for the formation of CSH match those of patients aged over 50 with CSH. A history of cranial trauma was present in 77% of the cases. In the remaining patients, a defect of haemostatic mechanisms was(More)
Idiopathic epidural spinal lipomas are rare: only 13 cases have been described in the literature. We report a further case in an obese patient without known etiological factors. Diagnosis of epidural lipomatosis was performed by MRI. Weight reduction was obtained by conservative treatment, reserving surgery in case symptoms did not disappear. Of the 8 obese(More)
 A comparison was made between factors influencing survival in patients operated on for acute spontaneous subdural hematomas (ASSH) and other groups of patients operated for acute, post-traumatic, subdural hematoma reported in the literature.  The data of 17 patients operated on for ASSH were collected. Four variables: early surgical treatment, high Glasgow(More)
This case report describes the outcome of straight endograft placement for treating a large para-anastomotic aortic aneurysm (PAA). A 43-year-old woman was admitted to the emergency department because of a vast PAA (8.7 cm in maximum transverse diameter). Since 1983, she has undergone multiple vascular operations for arterial occlusive disease. In 1990, an(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this work was to evaluate the long-term patency of endografting in the treatment of popliteal artery aneurysms (PAAs) and to identify which factors may be predictors of graft occlusion. METHODS All the patients who underwent endovascular repair of PAA were analyzed from 2006 until 2014 on the basis of symptoms, comorbidities, limb(More)
