The dynamic signal intensity changes at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in active and chronic wallerian degeneration in the corticospinal tract were evaluated. Forty-three patients with wallerian degeneration seen on MR images after cerebral infarction were studied. When possible, patients with acute stroke were examined with MR imaging prospectively at the(More)
Quantitative analysis of Golgi-stained neurons in the preoptic area of the brain of prepuberal Macaca fascicularis monkeys indicated structural differences between males and females. Neurons of males had more dendritic bifurcations and a higher frequency of spines. The bifurcation difference appeared in all cell types and was concentrated in the(More)
INTRODUCTION Convex spherical anamorphosis is a barrel distortion that consists of the application of a plane surface on a convex hemisphere. Applied in vascular imaging of brain arteriovenous malformations (bAVMs), this deformation may help to 'spread' the nidus and surrounding vessels (arteries/veins) and thus to differentiate the different components of(More)
BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE The goal of spinal dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF) treatment is to permanently occlude the proximal draining vein and the fistula itself, which can be achieved by open surgery or endovascular treatment. The endovascular approach is currently the primary treatment, but it requires the presence of an access as close to the site of(More)
Blood blister-like aneurysms (BLAs) are rare lesions, associated with diffuse subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). BLAs tend to rebleed quickly after first bleeding and must be treated as an emergency. Acute treatment is challenging using surgical and endovascular approaches due to the fragile aneurysm wall and small sac. Flow-diverter stents (FDSs) may offer a(More)
