Eleven of our own cases of tuberous sclerosis with intraventricular tumor and 34 cases from the literature are reviewed. Initial symptoms and identification of tuberous sclerosis and tumor are reviewed. Results of surgical treatment, including direct radical excision and shunting are given. On gross examination, the tumor was most often loosely connected to(More)
We propose to evaluate the effect of sacral percutaneous thermorhizotomy on cerebral palsy children. A prospective study including 29 children followed by a multidisciplinary team was conducted from 1990 to 2000. A thermal radiofrequency lesion of the first sacral root was obtained by percutaneous puncture of the posterior intervertebral foramen with(More)
OBJECTIVES We report long-term results of posterior sacral root rhizotomies in combination with Finetech-Brindley anterior sacral root stimulators implanted intradurally in 20 spinal cord injury patients. MATERIAL and methods: The 14 female and 6 male patients included 14 paraplegics and 6 tetraplegics. All of them initially presented hyperactive bladder,(More)
Between January 1990 and February 1992, a total of 301 patients underwent discectomy for lumbar disc herniation; 29 had an extreme lateral herniation, i.e., foraminal or extraforaminal. The intervertebral foramen is a three-dimensional area demarcated primarily by the pedicles; we call it the lateral interpedicular compartment. The extraforaminal zone is(More)
OBJECTIVE Specify the epidemiological data on the acute spinal cord injuries and define a group of patients that could benefit from cellular transplantation therapy designed with the aim of repair and regeneration of damaged spinal cord tissues. MATERIAL AND METHODS Five years monocentric (Gui-de-Chauliac Hospital, Montpellier, France) retrospective(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To evaluate the incidence, clinical presentation, operative techniques and long-term outcome of spinal meningiomas following surgery. METHODS Fifteen patients harboring spinal meningiomas were treated between 1998 and 2005 in our department. Diagnosis was made on magnetic resonance imaging and confirmed histologically. Microsurgical(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Glioblastoma, the most common malignant primary brain tumor in adults, is usually rapidly fatal. The current care standards for newly diagnosed glioblastoma consist, when feasible, in surgical resection, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy, as described in the Stupp protocol. Despite optimal treatment, nearly all malignant gliomas recur.(More)
PURPOSE We prospectively reviewed the clinical results of acutely ruptured cerebral aneurysms treated with GDC over a 5 year period, in order to characterize death and dependency factors. METHODS Between 1997 and 2002, 229 patients (254 aneurysms treated, 140 females, 89 males; mean age: 51 years) with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage were treated with(More)
We present a case report of a thirty-six-year-old right-handed female. She suffered with a malignant space-occupying supratentorial ischemic stroke caused by a traumatic cervical internal carotid artery dissection. She had a car accident and, initially, presented with a normal examination. In two days, she became comatose (Glasgow Coma Scale score was 5)(More)
A saccular aneurysm of the posterior inferior cerebellar artery lying in the fourth ventricle and an arteriovenous malformation in the cerebellum fed by the same artery are reported. Clipping of the neck of the aneurysm and total removal of the arteriovenous malformation were performed successfully during one stage. Review of the pertinent literature(More)
