Computerized tomography of the head was done in 5021 patients aged 21 to 81 years from various neurological, neurosurgical and neurotraumatological indications. Brain atrophy as an only finding (primary) was noted in 11.5%- and in 5.4% of cases it was associated with other changes. The neurological-radiological correlations were established in 200 cases of… (More)
Neuropsychological and electroencephalographic investigations of 200 patients with tomographically confirmed brain atrophy failed to demonstrate significant differences in relation to control group of patients without this atrophy in whom CT was done for the same clinical indications as in the studied group. In both groups the results of neuropsychological… (More)
On the basis of a material of 561 patients with ruptured intracranial aneurysms treated at the Department of Neurosurgery, Institute of Neurology, Medical Academy in Cracow in the years 1971 to 1977 the authors discuss the effectiveness of conservative treatment for prevention of recurrent bleeding from these aneurysms. The whole group of 561 patients were… (More)
In a group of 556 patients with ruptured intracranial aneurysms in 80 (14%) prodromal manifestations were present before haemorrhage. They included most frequently headaches vomiting, disturbances of eye movements and transient disturbances of consciousness. Prodromal symptoms were most frequent in cases of vertebral-basilar aneurysms.
Eighty patients are reported with ischaemic complications developing during subarachnoideal haemorrhage due to aneurysm rupture. Ischaemic complications developed in 12.82% of cases in the whole group of subarachnoideal haemorrhages caused by aneurysm rupture. The causes of ischaemia were: closure or stenosis of the afferent artery during the operation,… (More)
