Interictal hypometabolism is commonly found in mesio-temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE), but its pathophysiology remains incompletely understood. We hypothesized that metabolic changes reflect the preferential networks involved by ictal discharges. We analysed the topography of interictal hypometabolism according to electro-clinical patterns in 50 patients with(More)
OBJECTIVE The need to repair dural defects has prompted the use of dura mater substitutes. Many synthetic materials have been used for dural closure. Neuro-Patch (B. Braun Médical S.A., Boulogne, France) is a nonabsorbable microporous fleece composed of polyester urethane that has been approved for human use by the European Union since 1995. To the best of(More)
OBJECTIVE Obliteration is progressive after radiosurgery (RS) for cerebral arteriovenous malformation (AVM), and until it is complete, there is still a risk of hemorrhage. The aim of our study was to evaluate the severity of hemorrhage after RS, the actuarial risk of hemorrhage, and the parameters associated with hemorrhage. METHODS Of 756 patients(More)
Quantitative imaging assessment of radiation therapy (RT) for diffuse low-grade gliomas (DLGG) by measuring the velocity of diametric expansion (VDE) over time has never been studied. We assessed the VDE changes following RT and determined whether this parameter can serve as a prognostic factor. We reviewed a consecutive series of 33 adults with(More)
OBJECTIVE To demonstrate that malignant glioneuronal tumors comprise a large spectrum of neoplasms, without mature ganglion-like cells, that may histologically resemble any malignant glioma (World Health Organization Grade III or IV) but have a distinct biological behavior. METHODS This series includes all tumors diagnosed as malignant glioneuronal tumors(More)
OBJECTIVE Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) treated by radiosurgery with complete obliteration of the nidus but a persisting early draining vein on follow-up angiography can be termed subtotally obliterated. However, these are persistent circulating AVMs. The significance of these lesions, their hemorrhage rate, and their management are analyzed. METHODS(More)
