Postoperative pain following excision of acoustic neuroma by the suboccipital approach: observations on possible cause and potential amelioration.
Incisional pain and headache have been reported following cerebellopontine angle surgery via the suboccipital approach. The high incidence and severity of pain determined in a retrospective study ofExpand
The University of Toronto head injury treatment study: a prospective, randomized comparison of pentobarbital and mannitol.
Fifty-nine patients were treated in a prospective, randomized comparison of pentobarbital and mannitol for the control of intracranial hypertension resulting from head injury. Patients with elevatedExpand

Pain after Surgery for Acoustic Neuroma
Postoperative pain after surgery in the cerebellopontine angle (CPA) is acknowledged to occur, but is rarely taken into account as a factor in the analysis of morbidity of such surgery. It is widelyExpand
Cerebrospinal fluid leaks and meningitis in acoustic neuroma surgery
Cerebrospinal fluid leaks and associated meningitis are the most common life-threatening complications of surgery for acoustic neuromas. This retrospective study reviews 319 patients who had surgeryExpand
Recurrent intracranial hemorrhage due to postpartum cerebral angiopathy: implications for management.
BACKGROUND Postpartum cerebral angiopathy as a cause of hemorrhagic stroke in young women is not well recognized. It is unknown whether this disorder represents a true inflammatory vasculitis orExpand
Primary intramedullary primitive neuroectodermal tumor of the spinal cord: case report and review of the literature.
OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE Primary intraspinal primitive neuroectodermal tumors (PNETs) are rare. We report a case and review the literature. CLINICAL PRESENTATION A 22-year-old woman presented withExpand
Dimethyl sulfoxide has been tested in various experimental injuries of the central nervous system in relation to other therapies. It appears to be a useful drug in acute extradural mass-formingExpand
Cerebrospinal fluid leak after acoustic neuroma surgery: influence of tumor size and surgical approach on incidence and response to treatment.
OBJECT The aims of this study were to review the incidence of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage complicating the removal of acoustic neuroma and to identify factors that influence its occurrence andExpand
Hearing preservation in the removal of intracanalicular acoustic neuromas via the retrosigmoid approach.
In a series of 514 consecutive operations for complete excision of acoustic neuromas, 94 procedures were performed via a retrosigmoid approach to preserve the patient's hearing. Twenty-six of theseExpand
