This study attempts to analyse the intra-operative anatomical findings of the recurrent artery of Heubner in 48 patients with Anterior Communicating Artery Aneurysm who were operated on at the Neurosurgical Department of Atatürk University Medical School, Erzurum, Türkiye. All patients underwent radical surgery for aneurysm by the right pterional approach.(More)
Damage to the olfactory nerve during the pterional approach to the anterior communicating artery aneurysms has not previously been investigated in a quantified manner. In this retrospective study, 100 patients with anterior communicating artery aneurysms, for whom the pterional approach was employed, were observed from the point of view of postoperative(More)
The anatomical variations of sylvian vein and cistern were investigated during the pterional approach in 750 operative cases with different pathologies. All patients were operated on at the Neurosurgical Department of Ataturk University Medical School, Erzurum, Turkiye. The patients underwent surgery for the lesions necessitating the right or left pterional(More)
The pterional approach is commonly employed in surgery of the anterior circulation and upper basilar artery aneurysms, as well as for the tumors of orbital, retroorbital, sellar, chiasmatic, subfrontal and prepontine areas and lesions around the sella especially for lesions behind the clivus. Also tumors arising from the medial sphenoid ridge, the superior(More)
Pedicle screw fixation of the spine has become one of the most stable and versatile methods of spine fixation, and knowledge of pedicle morphology is crucial for the safe application of these systems. We undertook this study because only a few reports have investigated Eastern populations. Lumbar pedicle anatomy, i.e., pedicle width (PW) and pedicle height(More)
This microsurgical study attempts to analyze the intraoperative anatomic vascular variations associated with the anterior communicating artery (ACoA) aneurysms in 120 patients who were operated on at the Neurosurgical Department of Atatürk University Medical School, Erzurum, Türkiye. All patients underwent radical surgery for aneurysm by the right pterional(More)
Spinal intramedullary ependymal cysts are extremely rare. Fourteen cases have been reported in the literature, and only one was associated with another congenital lesion. The authors describe the case of a 33-year-old man in whom an intramedullary ependymal cyst and filar lipoma were present. These lesions were diagnosed using magnetic resonance imaging and(More)
The present study evaluates the effects of agmatine on histopathological damage following traumatic injury using a clinically relevant model of diffuse brain injury. A total of 27 male Sprague-Dawley rats weighing 200-225 g were anaesthetised and subjected to head trauma using Marmarou's impact-acceleration model. The rats were then separated into two main(More)
This study attempts to analyse the intra-operative anatomical findings of the lenticulostriate artery (LSA) in 60 patients with middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysms who were operated on at the Neurosurgical Department of Atatürk University Medical School, Erzurum, Türkiye. All patients underwent radical surgery for aneurysm by the right or left pterional(More)
The anatomical variations of Sylvian vein and cistern were investigated during the pterional approach in 230 patients with 276 aneurysms of anterior circulation arteries, that were operated on at the Neurosurgical Department of Atatürk University Medical School. Erzurum, Türkiye. All patients underwent radical surgery for aneurysm by the right or left(More)
