Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is an uncommon disorder characterized by recurrent attacks of lancinating pain in the trigeminal nerve distribution. To date, the precise mechanism for TN remains unclear. Among a variety of causes of TN, the microvascular compression (MVC) hypothesis is the most popular one, but controversies still focus on the origin and(More)
OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that delayed X-irradiation can enhance the functional and structural recovery of the injured spinal cord in rats. METHODS Seventy Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into two groups, 35 rats in each. The control group sustained a one-minute clip compression (force of clip was 30 g) injury of the spinal cord at the T2(More)
BACKGROUND Aneurysms of the PICA are uncommon. Most of them arise at the PICA origin from the VA, whereas distal PICA aneurysms are exceptional. A retrospective analysis of 457 patients with SAH treated in our hospital found 5 patients with 6 distal PICA aneurysms (approximately 1% of SAHs). CASE DESCRIPTION All patients were female, with a mean age of 54(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore whether X-irradiation can enhance the functional and structural recovery of the injured spinal cord of rats. METHODS Seventy Sprague-Dawley rats received spinal cord injury by clip compression at the T2 level were randomly divided into two groups. The experimental group received X-irradiation at 14 days after injury, the control group(More)
