PURPOSE The goal of this study was to develop a method to reduce the costs of intraoperative high-field magnet resonance imaging (iMRI). The results of a series of 29 gliomas removed with this technique are presented. METHODS A series of 29 patients with brain gliomas were operated on using a low-cost method of high-field intraoperative MRI (Signa 1.5 T.(More)
Dentre as teorias que tentam elucidar a patogênese da neuralgia do trigê-meo, algumas procuram explicá-la por mecanismos compressivos das raízes trigeminals na base do crânio. As malformações occipitocervicais podem, ocasionalmente, provocar trigemi-nalgias. Casos raros de impressão basilar como causa de trigeminalgia foram publicados por Obrador & Boixadós(More)
BACKGROUND Trigeminal neuralgia is a common cause of facial pain, characterized by shock-like pain affecting one or more branches of the trigeminal nerve. When conservative treatment fails and microdecompression is not indicated, percutaneous procedures are helpful. This percutaneous approach is done by a puncture up to the Gasserian ganglion, through the(More)
