To exclude underlying vascular abnormalities in patients with spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage, the traditional paradigm requires investigation using digital subtraction angiography (DSA) in both the acute and subacute phases. We investigated whether MRI and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), in the subacute stage of intracerebral hematoma, had high(More)
AIM To compare the risk of postoperative haemorrhage with different sizes of brain biopsy needles. PATIENTS AND METHOD A cohort of patients using a 2.5-mm outer diameter side-cutting biopsy needle was compared to a subsequent cohort using a 1.8-mm needle of the same type. All data were collected prospectively. A CT scan was done within 12 h after surgery.(More)
With the advanced technology of multi-slice CT scans, we explored the effectiveness of CT angiography (CTA) in place of digital subtraction angiography (DSA) in patients with acute spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). We performed a computerized PubMed search of the literature from inception to 27 July 2011 to find reports of similar comparative(More)
A method is described which provides standardised reproducible radiographic images of the lower limb. Anteroposterior and lateral radiographs are digitised and processed by computer to provide graphic/numeric displays of angles and linear measurements, relating the centre points of the hip, knee, and ankle. Two cases illustrate how surgical planning is(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Cerebral microbleeds (CMBs) on MRI gradient echo images are hemosiderin deposits, which may predict intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). The risk of ICH in patients with CMBs could be exacerbated by the use of antithrombotics. The purpose of our study is to prospectively evaluate the risk of ICH in patients with ischemic stroke who receive(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE we compared the effectiveness of using computed tomographic angiography and venography (CTAV) with digital subtraction angiography (DSA) in young or nonhypertensive patients with acute spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage. METHODS we prospectively recruited 109 young (age between 18 and 45 years) or nonhypertensive patients with(More)
OBJECT Anterior temporal lobe resection plus amygdalohippocampectomy can cause damage to the anterior portion of the optic radiation, also known as the Meyer loop, resulting in homonymous superior quadrantanopia. Magnetic resonance diffusion tensor tractography (DTT) of the Meyer loop can help in surgical planning. In this study, the distance of the(More)
A 45-year-old woman complained of a progressive 2-month history of bilateral hearing impairment and diplopia on upward gaze. She had a history of a recurrent pineal region ganglioglioma with repeated tumor excision, adjuvant radiotherapy, and a ventriculo-peritoneal shunt performed 12 years prior. Subsequent imaging studies 6 years ago showed a pineal(More)
This study aimed to define the articular geometry of the metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint of the great toe. Embedded in resin blocks, five pairs of cadaveric first MTP joints (all from men) were sequentially cut in the sagittal plane with a milling machine, removing 0.5 mm of bone in each cut. The photographed cartilaginous outline of each cut was digitized(More)
A flow-diverting stent is placed in the parent artery to reduce blood flow in the aneurysm sac to facilitate progressive thrombosis and neointimal remodeling while maintaining outflow in the side branches and perforators. All international multicenter registries have reported on the progressive occlusion of aneurysms with time and have implied that an(More)
