28 patients with a mean age of 43.6 years were operated on for a cerebral neoplasm situated in close proximity to an eloquent area (24 speech area, 4 motor cortex) from 1996 to 1999. Preoperatively, all patients had undergone a detailed neuropsychological examination. In 10 patients aphasic disturbances could be detected. All patients underwent preoperative(More)
The composition and the content of gangliosides changes during physiological growth and differentiation as well as in neoplastic cell transformation. In order to determine if ganglioside profiles correlate with brain tumour malignancy, the ganglioside distribution was determined in 31 gliomas of astrocytic origin and in non-tumour tissue by a recently(More)
In proliferating neoplastic cells, activity of the enzyme ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) increases. Among other brain tumors, ODC activation could also be observed in meningiomas. In the present study, we have investigated ODC gene expression in primary and recurrent meningiomas at the transcriptional level. ODC mRNA (messenger ribonucleic acid), ODC(More)
This animal experimental study was designed to examine the effects of TachoComb, a fixed combination of collagen with tissue adhesive, as an interposition membrane on the development of spinal epidural fibrosis in comparison to other hemostyptic materials. In 10 Wistar rats, four laminectomies were performed at lumbar and sacral vertebrae. Alternately, a(More)
The rigid fixation of bone fragments in the repair of depressed skull fractures can be a problem, especially if not all fragments are replaceable. Usually, in these cases mini- or microplates are used. The Craniofix titanium clamp (Aesculap, Germany) was developed for the fixation of bone flaps after osteoplastic craniotomy. It consists of a screw holding(More)
