Thirteen patients treated surgically for multiple intracranial aneurysms are described. They accounted for 12% of all patients with intracranial aneurysms diagnosed by arteriography. The incidence of multiple intracranial aneurysms, their location, surgical tactics and results of surgical intervention are discussed in the light of an analysis of own results(More)
A prospective, randomized trial evaluates the effects of two postoperative treatment regimens on survival in 198 adult patients with supratentorial gliomas. All patients were irradiated with 6 000 rads after possibly radical removal of tumors. CCNU administration in the dosis of 100 mg/sq m of body surface every 6–8 weeks following surgery proved to have no(More)
Therapeutic results are reported in 115 patients operated upon for intracranial aneurysms using the microsurgical technique from Yasargil's approach. Elimination of the aneurysm from the circulation by clipping its pedicle was done in 94 cases (82%), trapping of the afferent artery (12%), in 7 cases (6%) only the wall of the aneurysmatic sac was(More)
The authors discuss 5 cases of epidural empyemas of the vertebral canal in which a good surgical effect was obtained. On the basis of a literature survey and own material they discuss the aetiology of the disease, its rarity, and diagnostic difficulties caused frequently by absence of typical neurological changes, lack of systemic inflammatory reaction and(More)
The authors analyzed the signs and clinical data from the preoperative period in 39 patients with tumours of the conus terminalis and cauda equina. Most patients had been treated for a long time for lumbar discopathy with sciatic pains. Most symptoms and neurological signs were in many cases suggestive rather of lumbar disc prolapse than spinal tumour.(More)
By polygraphic methods the authors studied the sleep patterns during treatment of patients with subtentorial tumours causing hydrocephalus. Sleep recording was carried out in three stages of treatment: 1) before insertion of ventriculo-atrial valve, (7 investigations), 2) on the 7th day after valve insertion (7 investigations), 3) two months after removal(More)
