The ability of preoperative MRI-sequences to predict the consistency of intracranial meningiomas has not yet been clearly defined. We aim to demonstrate that diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) improves the prediction of intracranial meningiomas consistency. We prospectively studied 110 meningioma patients operated on in a single center from March 1st to the(More)
The purpose of this study is to estimate the remodelling characteristics of STA-MCA bypass and its influence on patency via the use of computational fluid dynamic (CFD) technology. The reconstructed three-dimensional geometries from MRA were segmented to create computational domains for CFD simulations. Eleven patients, who underwent regular MRA both(More)
The treatment of gliomas is highly individualized. Surgery for gliomas is essentially for histological diagnosis, to alleviate mass effect, and most importantly, to favor longer survival expectancy. During the past two decades, many surgical techniques and adjuvants have been applied to glioma surgery in China, which lead to a rapid development in the field(More)
BACKGROUND Glioma surgery in eloquent areas remains a challenge because of the risk of postoperative motor deficits. OBJECTIVE To prospectively evaluate the efficiency of using a combination of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) tractography functional neuronavigation and direct subcortical stimulation (DsCS) to yield a maximally safe resection of cerebral(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the preliminary experience in clinical application of 3.0 T intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (iMRI) neuronavigation system in China. METHODS From September 2010 to March 2011, a consecutive series of 122 patients with intracranial lesions underwent operations in guidance with 3.0 T iMRI. A retrospective analysis was conducted(More)
BACKGROUND Intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (iMRI) dates back to the 1990s and has been successfully applied in neurosurgery but they were low-field iMRI (< 1.0T). This paper reports the clinical experience with a 3T iMRI-integrated neurosurgical suite in Huashan Hospital, Shanghai, China. METHODS From September 2010 through March 2012, 373(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to examine the associations between depression and inflammatory markers in patients admitted to the hospital for myocardial infarction. METHODS Inflammatory cytokines, including high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-6, and tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) were assessed in a group of 75(More)
Resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (R-fMRI) is a promising tool in clinical application, especially in presurgical mapping for neurosurgery. This study aimed to investigate the sensitivity and specificity of R-fMRI in the localization of hand motor area in patients with brain tumors validated by direct cortical stimulation (DCS). We also(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical application of 3-T intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (iMRI), awake craniotomy, multimodal functional mapping, and intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring (IONM) for resection of dominant-sided insular gliomas. METHODS From March 2011 to June 2013, 30 gliomas involving the dominant insular lobe were resected in(More)
