The clinical and x-ray features of 28 cases of colloid cyst of the third ventricle are described. Colloid cyst is one of the most favourable space-occupying lesions of the brain for successful surgical removal, because an exact pre-operative diagnosis is possible. The surgical approach for colloid cyst of the third ventricle is discussed and the frequency… (More)
A single venous shunt obstructing the aqueductus of Sylvius was treated by interventriculostomy. A passage for CSF was obtained between the third and fourth ventricles. The catheter which was left in the aqueduct collapsed the malformation, possibly preventing a future haemorrhage. A Simple rubber catheter in the aqueduct of Sylvius has been well tolerated… (More)
A ease is reported of large intracranial plasmacytoma arising from the dura mater and involving the dura of the left cerebral convexity. tentorium eerebelli and the dura of the posterior
We describe a giant left orbital vascular malformation that was treated with both percutaneous and transarterial embolization. Feeder artery aneurysms thrombosed as a result of retrograde reflux of embolic material into the distal ophthalmic artery. In this presentation, we emphasize the efficacy of percutaneous embolization and retrograde thromboses of two… (More)
Intraventricular third ventricle meningiomas are very rare. Fourteen cases have been previously reported. We present a case of third ventricle meningioma, and discuss aetiology, pathology, symptoms, signs, position in the ventricle, and surgical approaches.
