Hyperostosing meningiomas of the sphenoid ridge--clinical features, surgical therapy, and long-term observations: review of 49 cases.
Thirty-three patients with en plaque, 9 with en masse (but with extensive bone involvement), and 7 with recurrent hyperostosing meningiomas of the sphenoid ridge were operated on, and long-term results have proved to be satisfying. Expand
The symptomatic empty sella. Prevention and correction via the transsphenoidal approach.
✓ Visual difficulty in association with an empty sella, resulting from downward migration of the optic system and secondary stretching or kinking of the optic nerves, is presented as a surgicalExpand
Acromegaly: analysis of 132 cases treated surgically.
The surgical treatment of 132 acromegalics is analyzed and endocrinological evidence of cure was observed most commonly in patients who exhibited preoperative GH values below 70 ng/ml. Expand
Thalamic spatial variability and the surgical results of lesions placed with neurophysiologic control.
This study not only demonstrates the wide range of individual spatial variability in thalamic structures, and the necessity for neurophysiologic corroboration of radiologic information during stereotactic surgery if optimal results are to be obtained, but also suggests a somatotopic organization within ventralis lateralis.

Endocrine outcome after transsphenoidal adenomectomy for prolactinoma: prolactin levels and tumor size as predicting factors.
The level of Prolactin in the serum was determined pre- and postoperatively in 90 patients who were operated upon transsphenoidally for prolactin-secreting pituitary adenomas and the relationship between prolactIn levels and tumor size and the return of menses and cure is discussed. Expand

  • 2005
A simple and benign ventriculo-cisternostomy technique is proposed for alleviation of the hydrocephalus by aqueduct stenosis and it is desirable that the 3rd ventricle showed be sufficiently enlarged to avoid any risk of secondary occlusion or of hypothalamic damage. Expand
