Oxidative stress plays an important role in cystic periventricular leukomalacia (PVL). We performed a case-control study of preterm infants delivered at <35 weeks of gestation between January 2003 and December 2006. Patients were stratified into three groups, according to age at which cysts were initially identified: 10 days old (early cystic PVL; n=10),(More)
The course of intracranial pressure (ICP) and the finding of auditory brain stem response (ABR) was discussed in the cases diagnosed as diffuse axonal injury (DAI) established by Gennarelli. ICP was measured in twenty-six cases which were divided into three groups according to the course of ICP: Group (1), in which ICP remained below 20 mmHg (group I, 9(More)
Forty cases diagnosed as diffuse brain injury (DBI) were studied by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) performed within 3 days after injury. These cases were divided into two groups, which were the concussion group and diffuse axonal injury (DAI) group established by Gennarelli. There were no findings on computerized tomography (CT) in the concussion group(More)
The clinical significance of continuous intracarotid infusion of a small dose of mannitol (ICI of mannitol) was discussed. Eighteen patients suffering from severe head injury with Glasgow coma scale (GCS) less than 6 were treated by ICI of mannitol for the improvement of raised intracranial pressure (ICP). In all of these 18 cases, conventional venous(More)
