Fluorescence-guided resection of glioblastoma multiforme by using 5-aminolevulinic acid-induced porphyrins: a prospective study in 52 consecutive patients.
OBJECT It has been established that 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) induces the accumulation of fluorescent porphyrins in glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), a phenomenon potentially exploitable to guideExpand

Intraoperative detection of malignant gliomas by 5-aminolevulinic acid-induced porphyrin fluorescence.
OBJECTIVE Survival after surgery and radiotherapy for the treatment of malignant gliomas is linked to the completeness of tumor removal. Therefore, methods that permit intraoperative identificationExpand

A critical reevaluation of the intraluminal thread model of focal cerebral ischemia: evidence of inadvertent premature reperfusion and subarachnoid hemorrhage in rats by laser-Doppler flowmetry.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The intraluminal thread model for middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) has gained increasing acceptance. Numerous modifications have been reported in the literature,Expand

Role of pressure gradients and bulk flow in dynamics of vasogenic brain edema.
The authors present the results of an investigation of the vasogenic type of brain edema using cold injury in cats as a model. Their findings indicate that bulk flow and not diffusion should beExpand

Surgery and radiotherapy compared with gamma knife radiosurgery in the treatment of solitary cerebral metastases of small diameter.
OBJECT The aim of this retrospective study was to compare treatment results of surgery plus whole-brain radiation therapy (WBRT) with gamma knife radiosurgery alone as the primary treatment forExpand

Fluorescence-guided resections of malignant gliomas--an overview.
Radical resections of contrast-enhancing tumour in patients with malignant gliomas may be pertinent for survival but are often difficult to achieve due to uncertainties in distinguishing tumourExpand
