Stereotactic endoscopic techniques are extremely helpful in diagnosis and therapy of cystic intracerebral space occupying lesions. Acute space occupying lesions can be managed effectively and without major tissue traumatization. Up to now we have operated on more than 70 cystic intracerebral space occupying lesions with a stereotactic endoscopic technique.(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic subdural hematomas are well delineated collections of fluid (blood) between the dura mater and the arachnoid space. Two types of encapsulated chronic subdural hematoma can be distinguished: the nonseptated and the septated form. The nonseptated form can be treated easily using the burrhole-drainage method, whereas treatment of septated(More)
The term "midline tumour" is defined partly from the topographic and from the pathogenetic point of view. Problems of modern imagegenerating procedures in establishing the diagnosis of cerebral midline lesions are described. The role of stereotactic diagnostic and therapeutic interventions is emphasized. Stereotactic brain tumour biopsy, installation of(More)
Early or localized forms of arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD) have been proposed as the arrhythmogenic substrate of repetitive monomorphic ventricular tachycardia (RMVT) originating in the right ventricular outflow tract in patients without any underlying cardiac abnormality on clinical examination and echocardiography. To further examine(More)
Interstitial curietherapy with 125-Iodine is an effective therapeutic option in the treatment of low grade gliomas. Four cases with astrocytoma grade II are presented, where tumour growth characteristics have changed to anaplasia during interstitial irradiation after a primary period of tumour regression. Anaplastic transformation could be due to a(More)
Primary cerebral lymphomas are rare tumors. In the last years the frequency of these space occupying lesions is increasing. Diagnosis by image-generating methods is often difficult. Stereotactic biopsy is a reliable diagnostic tool. Explorative craniotomy with tumor resection should be avoided if possible. An effective multimodal therapeutic regimen is the(More)
In open brain surgery, access to processes in the midline region is difficult. Exact diagnosis of the tumour type is crucial to the choice of therapeutic modality. In many cases, modern imaging procedures such as CT and MRI are useful diagnostic tools. The diagnosis is confirmed by direct biopsy and histological examination. Selected cases of tumours close(More)
Within the EurIPACS HIPIN topic a generic HIS/RIS-PACS interface will be designed, implemented and evaluated. It is generally agreed that integration with the HIS/RIS is essential for the acceptance of PACS in a clinical environment. An interface between HIS/RIS and PACS allows more efficient usage of both systems, better integration of data, better(More)
HISTORY AND ADMISSION FINDINGS A 64-year-old man complained of pain and a symmetric swelling of the clavicles. There were no fever and chills. 27 years earlier, a resection of the mandible was necessary, due to osteomyelitis. In the past, he complained of recurrent episodes of pain in the sternum and in the thoracic spine. Skin disorders were not reported.(More)
