To examine the relationship between neuropsychological sequelae and atrophy parameters from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) following paediatric moderate-to-severe traumatic brain injury (TBI), 19 head injured children and adolescents were studied at least 6 years after injury. Three-dimensional MRI scans were obtained. A semi-automatic computerized method(More)
In order to investigate the relationship between age at injury and long-term neuropsychological impairment, 29 children and adolescents who sustained traumatic brain injury (TBI) were studied at least 6 years post-trauma. Tests of intellectual, memory, visuospatial and frontal lobe functions were administered to patients and 29 normal matched control(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish some therapeutic criteria about the treatment of AVMs of III, IV and V grade of Spetzler and Martin and to analyse the results in the subgroup of preoperative embolization plus surgery. METHODS We perform a retrospective analysis of a group of 31 patients with arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) treated in our center between 1999 and(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of focal frontal lesions, identified by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), in a group of traumatic brain injured (TBI) patients, in order to clarify the sensitivity of phonemic and semantic fluency tasks as tests of frontal lobe functioning. Thirteen TBI patients were included and matched with a normal(More)
Neurophysiological monitoring during surgery to avoid damaging of eloquent brain areas is a useful tool. We are performing intraoperative neurophysiological test to locate motor, sensitive and speech areas with cortical stimulation and cranial nerves during cerebellopontine cranial base surgery. Neurophysiological monitoring during brain stem surgery has(More)
INTRODUCTION. Esthesioneuroblastoma (ENB) is a very uncommon malignant tumor with a neuroectodermal origin that usually involves the anterior cranial fossa and nasal cavity. OBJECTIVES. To review our experience in the management of ENB and assess the validity of the histopathological diagnosis, modality of treatment and prognostic factors of the disease(More)
INTRODUCTION Up to 40% of the patients with cancer have cerebral metastases, so that their incidence in the general population reaches 0.15%. Different treatments for metastases have been described. Most aim to eradicate one or several metastases so as to improve the quality of life and life expectancy of the patients. DEVELOPMENT The main factors(More)
We have studied a group of patients who had suffered severe closed head injury. We have found that the presence of neuropsychological impairment was related with the duration of posttraumatic amnesia. The more frequent complaints were memory deficit, problems of attention and personality changes specially an increase in anxiety and aggressivity levels. All(More)
