OBJECT In recent years, the role of decompressive craniectomy for the treatment of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in patients with refractory intracranial hypertension has been the subject of several studies. The purpose of this review was to evaluate the contribution of decompressive craniectomy in reducing intracranial pressure (ICP) and increasing cerebral(More)
The effects of deep brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus on nonmotor symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD) rarely have been investigated. Among these, sensory disturbances, including chronic pain (CP), are frequent in these patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate the changes induced by deep brain stimulation in the perception of sensory(More)
It is well known that a traction injury of the brachial plexus may produce tears in the root sleeves resulting in pseudomeningoceles, which are in most instances small and not noticed by the patient. We report 2 unusual cases of giant pseudomeningoceles due to brachial plexus injury presenting as a supraclavicular mass. Compression because of the mass(More)
Carotid rete mirabile (CRM) is a rare physiological vascular network in humans that is most often found in Eastern populations. This paper describes a CRM associated with an aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) and discusses the details of the patient's treatment. A 28-year-old woman was admitted to our service with clinical signs and symptoms of a(More)
Our goal was to estimate the diagnostic accuracy of substantia nigra fractional anisotropy (SN-FA) for Parkinson’s disease (PD) diagnosis in a sample similar to the clinical setting, including patients with essential tremor (ET) and healthy controls (HC). We also performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to estimate mean change in SN-FA induced by PD(More)
OBJECT The object of this study was to compare the clinical, functional, and aesthetic results of 2 surgical techniques, pterional (PT) and minipterional (MPT) craniotomies, for microsurgical clipping of anterior circulation aneurysms. METHODS Fifty-eight patients with ruptured and unruptured anterior circulation aneurysms were enrolled into a prospective(More)
The objective of this study was to review the literature on glossopharyngeal neuralgia (GN) and to discuss its differential diagnosis and treatment options. Despite the significant improvement of trigeminal neuralgia with pharmacological treatment, GN has a higher incidence of treatment failure and neurosurgery is necessary for the majority of patients.(More)
The role of decompressive craniectomy in the treatment of severe posttraumatic cerebral swelling remains quite a controversial issue. To the best of our knowledge, there is no study demonstrating the effect of decompressive craniectomy on cerebral blood flow (CBF) velocity by means of transcranial Doppler sonography (TCD). We present two patients who(More)
Cerebral microdialysis (CMD) is a laboratory tool that provides on-line analysis of brain biochemistry via a thin, fenestrated, double-lumen dialysis catheter that is inserted into the interstitium of the brain. A solute is slowly infused into the catheter at a constant velocity. The fenestrated membranes at the tip of the catheter permit free diffusion of(More)
Few studies on transcranial brain sonography have been performed in hereditary and non-hereditary ataxias. The objective of the present study was to report transcranial brain sonography findings in a sample of clinically and molecularly proven Machado-Joseph disease patients and to compare these data against those of an age- and gender-matched control(More)
