This work aims to prospectively record all primary central nervous system tumors (PCNST), in France, for which histological diagnosis is available. The objectives are to create a national registry and a network to perform epidemiological studies, to implement clinical and basic research protocols, and to harmonize the healthcare of patients affected by(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of the present study was to determine the clinical feasibility of integration of stereotactic SPECT (sSPECT) with 201Tl in the stereotactic MRI (sMRI)-based planning of brain tumor biopsy. Furthermore, the predictive value of the integrated techniques was analyzed by comparison with the corresponding histologically determined metabolic(More)
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)
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 Metastases to the spine are a common manifestation of breast cancer leading to considerable reduction in the patient's quality of life. Physicians must consider the different treatments available to decrease pain, reduce tumor burden, and ensure spinal stability to prevent neurological compromises. The first objective of this study is to analyze(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)
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)
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.
