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)
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 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)
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)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE On diffusion-weighted (DW) images, primary hematomas are initially mainly hyperintense, and then hypointense during the first few days after stroke onset. As in other brain disorders, variations in the T2 relaxation time of the hematoma influence the DW imaging signal intensity. Our aim was to evaluate the contribution of the T2(More)
