A rare case of a 47-year old female with hemifacial spasm of the one-year duration as the initial and only symptom of posterior fossa meningioma is reported. At first the patient did not consent to surgery and was unsuccessfully treated with anticonvulsants. A month prior to her admission she started to complain of headache and balance disorder, and(More)
BACKGROUND The term "colloid cysts" refers to nonneoplastic lesions located in the anterior part of the third ventricle. However, cysts morphologically identical to colloid cysts are found, albeit extremely rarely, through the neuraxis. CASE DESCRIPTION We report a case of a 44-year-old man with a short history of headache and 5 years of bilateral hearing(More)
The paper presents clinical evaluation of the polypropylene-polyester knit used as a cranioplasty material. Material. Between year 1980 and 2002 275 cranioplastic procedures using the polypropylene-polyester plates Codubix were carried out in the Department of Neurosurgery of the Medical University of Łódź. There were 146 patients who primarily sustained(More)
OBJECTIVES The authors described a new cranioplastic method where polypropylene-polyester knitwear was shaped according to individual patient's skull 3D model. The material was formed in a customized manner and preoperatively adjusted to the patient needs with modern CAD/CAM techniques. PATIENTS AND METHODS The procedure consisted of a CT scan with a(More)
The authors presented a case of iatrogenic trigeminal neuralgia in a 46-year-old man with a dural arteriovenous malformation (AVM) previously treated by means of intravascular embolization. At first, microvascular decompression (MVD) in the posterior fossa was performed, but unfortunately the pain persisted. Subsequently, percutaneous stereotactic(More)
On the basis of three cases of multiple cerebral abscesses, the authors showed that an attempt at conservative treatment could be ineffective and should, therefore, be closely monitored with CT scanning. If surgery is not avoidable one should excise those abscesses with which cause a mass effect as antibiotic therapy may be insufficient.
The authors reviewed a series of 38 consecutive patients with trigeminal neuralgia treated with percutaneous thermocoagulation in years 1984-90. In 10 patients in whom the result of treatment was unsatisfactory the coagulation was repeated (in 2 out of 10 threefold). The analysis of the results showed that good outcome was connected with permanent(More)
The authors report a case of rhinorrhoea caused by a hypophyseal tumour. The clinical pattern and the result of CT of the head might suggest a non-neoplastic aetiology of the cerebrospinal fluid fistula, but intraoperative findings and histological examination made possible establishing of the cause of the rhinorrhoea which was most likely perforation of a(More)
