Hippocampal sclerosis is defined as selective neuronal loss and gliosis of the hippocampus with heterogeneous etiologies, including neurodegenerative tauopathies. We report a 78-year-old woman who presented with depression, in whom postmortem examination revealed almost complete loss of neurons with gliosis in the subiculum and CA1-3 regions of the(More)
The optimal duration of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) drainage after acute aneurysm surgery is unclear. The association between the occurrence of symptomatic vasospasm or late hydrocephalus and the duration of CSF drainage was investigated using multiple logistic analysis in 95 consecutive patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage who underwent surgery(More)
The intracranial internal carotid artery (ICA) is a muscular artery and lacks external elastic lamina (EEL). Stenosis of the intracranial ICA is relatively uncommon, but the most common site is the cavernous portion. The characteristics of the arterial wall structures were examined using serial 3-mm sections of 32 intracranial ICAs obtained from 50 cadavers(More)
A 58-year-old man presented with sudden onset of severe headache. Computed tomography demonstrated subarachnoid hemorrhage and right acute subdural hematoma. He had no neurological deficits. Cerebral angiography showed an anterior cranial fossa dural arteriovenous fistula (AVF) supplied by the bilateral ethmoidal arteries. A fistula was suggested on the(More)
A 48-year-old woman suffered head trauma and presented with an acute epidural hematoma with a linear fracture of the right temporal bone across the middle meningeal groove. Initial angiography demonstrated no vascular abnormalities. Eight months later, she again suffered head trauma and computed tomography demonstrated traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage.(More)
Carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is the main treatment for atherosclerotic plaque of the cervical internal carotid artery. The surgical anatomy of the carotid arteries was studied in the carotid triangle of 49 cadavers. The carotid bifurcation was located at the level of the lower third of C-3. The superior thyroid artery arose from the anterior wall of the(More)
We describe a case of an intracranial solitary fibrous tumor that recurred three times consecutively in an 11-year period. A 72-year-old man presented with a headache and gait disturbance. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a dumbbell tumor at the left tentorium. The tumor was removed but recurred. The first diagnosis was hemangiopericytoma, but all(More)
The author describes a case of basilar artery occlusion caused by vertebral artery dissection with vertebral fracture. A 61-year-old man was admitted with neck pain after a traffic accident. His symptoms suddenly deteriorated and cerebral angiography revealed an occlusion of the right vertebral artery, and complete occlusion of the basilar artery.(More)
A 44-year-old female with subarachnoid hemorrhage caused by the left internal carotid-posterior communicating artery aneurysm rupture was presented. At that time, carotid angiography showed the left internal carotid-posterior communicating artery aneurysm and the right internal carotid-posterior communicating artery portion infundibular dilatation. Neck(More)
OBJECTIVE In this study, we evaluated the difference in incidence of symptomatic vasospasm between ruptured aneurysms in the anterior and posterior circulation using multiple logistic regression analysis. METHODS A total of 145 consecutive patients who underwent surgery for aneurysms within 72 hours after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) were studied. (More)
