In the present study, we evaluated changes in brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) immunoreactivity in the rat lumbar (L) 5 dorsal root ganglion (DRG) and areas where afferents from the DRG terminate, the L5 spinal cord and gracile nuclei, following unilateral sciatic nerve transection or crush. From 3 days to 4 weeks following cut or crush injury, the(More)
We operated upon 12 patients with macroadenoma and two with Rathke's cleft cyst using an endoscope through a nasal speculum. Pure endoscopic endonasal transsphenoiolal approach (TSA) was performed in nine patients and endoscope-assisted microscopic endo nasal TSA in five. A thin-bladed nasal speculum was used to achieve a wide, almost midline, pathway(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine possible peripheral mechanisms for the reduction of propofol injection pain by the addition of ketamine. We hypothesised that pH changes associated with the addition of ketamine to propofol decrease propofol-induced pain on injection. We compared the efficacy of intravenous ketamine pretreatment under tourniquet with(More)
BACKGROUND In view of the fact that a basal craniectomy in microvascular decompression (MVD) for hemifacial spasm (HFS) can minimize cerebellar retraction and expose the facial nerve root exit zone (FNREZ) directly from below without placement of tension on the seventh-eighth cranial nerve complex, we used a more basal approach in 32 patients with typical(More)
Clear cell meningioma, about 20 cases of which have been reported in the literature, is a morphological variant of meningioma. The authors report a case of spinal clear cell meningioma that occurred in a child. A 14-month-old girl showed gradually progressive paraparesis 1 month after she started to walk. Magnetic resonance image showed an intradural(More)
