An 11-year-old girl developed cerebellar infarction presenting as a posterior fossa mass lesion after stretching and flexing her neck. Cerebral angiography demonstrated irregular narrowing of the right vertebral artery at the C2 level and x-rays of the upper cervical spine showed atlantoaxial subluxation with os odontoideum. She underwent surgical(More)
Three patients with thoracic myelopathy were operated on using a modified surgical approach, anterior decompression of the thoracic cord through the posterior approach. The usefulness of and indication for this approach were discussed. Operative technique is as follows. In the prone position, laminae are removed widely enough to include the medial half of(More)
A 17-month-old boy was admitted to our hospital in a semicomatose state after a minor head injury. Computed tomography (CT) scans revealed a posterior interhemispheric and a thin convexity subdural hematoma. Two and a half hours later, repeated CT scans disclosed a development of the right hemispheric diffuse low density and an enlargement of the(More)
The protective effect of a large decompressive craniectomy against delayed ischemic neurological deficits (DIND) was evaluated in patients operated on after subarachnoid hemorrhage due to a ruptured aneurysm. In 54 cases, a large decompressive craniectomy was performed (Group D), and 41 patients underwent conventional craniotomy (Group ND). Transient DIND(More)
Diagnosis of intracranial meningiomas with computed tomography (CT) is usually easy. However, some authors have reported cases preoperatively misdiagnosed because of atypical computed tomographic features. We report a case of non-cystic meningioma presenting a ring enhanced mass lesion, with CT scan. A 48-year-old male was admitted to our hospital on(More)
