BACKGROUND In recent years, some studies were conducted to evaluate the effects of stem cells from different sources on patients with spinal cord injury (SCI). This study was carried out to evaluate the feasibility and therapeutic potential of autologous bone marrow cell (BMC) transplantation in 11 complete spinal cord injured patients at thoracic level.

BACKGROUND Limited reports exist about intracranial incidental findings on computed tomography (CT) imaging. We studied the frequency of incidental findings on 3000 brain CT scans of trauma patients. METHODS Three thousands standard brain CT scans of trauma patients were evaluated for some incidental findings. Cisterna magna was evaluated in 1500 CT(More)
STUDY DESIGN This study measured the frequency of lumbar intervertebral disc nucleus pulposus microscopic calcification and angiogenesis in adult patients undergoing discectomy compared to normal cadavers. OBJECTIVE The results were compared to determine the relationship between disc microscopic calcification with disc degeneration type, histopathological(More)
A pneumocele refers to an aerated sinus with either focal or generalized thinning of the bony sinus wall. Although the pathogenesis of a pneumocele is not yet known, it is presumed that increased intrasinusal pressure, due to a one-way valve between the nasal cavity and the affected sinus, is responsible for this condition. A 37-year-old man with frontal(More)
BACKGROUND It is important to find out the skull's anatomic indices with computed tomography (CT), especially the skull's dimensions according to the patients age and sex, because it can give important results in neurosurgery. We will also describe the skull's parameters among the Kerman population. METHOD Of the 2000 CT scans taken after head trauma(More)
STUDY DESIGN An experimental study to measure the depth of penetration of new vessels in degenerated intervertebral disc in rat. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of atorvastatin on angiogenesis in experimental disc degeneration in rat. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Back pain is strongly associated with degenerated intervertebral disc and management of(More)
The impact of extremely low-frequency pulsed electromagnetic fields (ELF-PEMFs) at various frequencies and amplitudes was investigated on cell cycle, apoptosis and viability of the Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) cell line (U87), in vitro. The GBM is a malignant brain tumor with high mortality in humans and poorly responsive to the most common type of cancer(More)
The complete or partial spontaneous disappearance of a cerebral arteriovenous malformation is rare. Spontaneous thrombosis in large arteriovenous malformations has been reported in only two cases. We report the case of a large arteriovenous malformation in a 17-year-old man, that thrombosed spontaneously after minor surgical manipulation and review the(More)
