We report a case of cerebellar schwannoma in a 64-year-old woman. The tumor was defined on computed tomographic and magnetic resonance imaging scans and confirmed on surgery. The solid part of the tumor appeared to be derived from the inferior vermis of the cerebellum, the cystic part extending toward the medulla oblongata and the foramen magnum. The(More)
In most standard anatomical textbooks, the cavernous branches of the internal carotid artery (ICA) are rarely or shortly described. Among three reports dealing with these branches, there is a lack of agreement in description and nomenclature. This study presents a systematic nomenclature based on the result of anatomical dissection in the cavernous sinus(More)
During the examination of 75 fixed brains and 2086 vertebral angiograms we encountered two cases of fenestration of the vertebral artery and two cases of partial duplication of the basilar artery. In the first case, an 81 year old male, there was fenestration, of the basilar artery at the union of the two vertebral arteries. The fenestration was 9mm long(More)
Three accessory middle cerebral arteries are described in two out of 75 brains dissected under the operating microscope. Each artery originated from the anterior cerebral artery, lateral to its junction with the anterior communicating artery, followed the proximal segment (A1, pars precommunicalis) of the anterior cerebral artery, then the horizontal(More)
Body mass index (BMI), body fat distribution and some behavioural variables were examined in an ethnic Vietnamese population newly arrived in Australia. The age range was 23 to 74 years for males (n = 246, mean = 38.8) and 24 to 66 for females (n = 165, mean = 36.4). Mean BMI was 20.62 +/- 2.65 (male) and 21.25 +/- 3.16 (female).

The most commonly used method for specifying the locations of functional areas in the human cerebral cortex is the coordinate system of Talairach and Tournoux (Co-planar Stereotaxic Altas of The Human Brain (1988) Georg Thieme Verlag, Stuttgart). It was designed to locate subcortical nuclei by reference to an axis joining the anterior and posterior(More)
BACKGROUND The effects of smoking and sex on lipid risk factors for cardiovascular disease were examined among Vietnamese people newly arrived in Australia. METHODS Immigrants recruited through Refugee Screening had anthropometric data recorded and blood collected to measure total cholesterol (TC), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL), and(More)
Multiple vascular anomalies in a 22-year-old patient who had signs and symptoms of vestibulocochlear dysfunction are reported. Angiography revealed a fenestration of the proximal segment of the left anterior cerebral artery, an ectasia of the left anterior and posterior cerebral arteries, and a persistence of the right trigeminal artery. The rarity of the(More)
INTRODUCTION Epidemiological studies of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are rare in the developing countries, particularly in Viet Nam where the consumption of tobacco continues to increase. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of early screening of smokers for bronchial obstruction using the Piko-6 apparatus. MATERIALS AND(More)
