OBJECTIVE To report five patients who underwent lumbopleural (LPl) shunting for the treatment of idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) and to describe the considerations, complications, and outcomes related to this rarely described procedure. METHODS The clinical data of five patients treated with LPl shunting over a 23-year period were(More)
We evaluated if patients with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) showed functional improvement after primary endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV). The efficacy of ETV for iNPH remains controversial. We retrospectively reviewed 10 consecutive patients treated between 2009 and 2011 with ETV for iNPH. Seven patients with a median age of 73 years(More)
OBJECT To evaluate the effectiveness of stereotactic navigation in enhancing the accuracy of ventricular shunt placement in patients with hydrocephalus. METHODS A retrospective cohort study at a single institution by a single surgeon was performed. Consecutive patients who underwent implantation of a ventricular shunt for the management of hydrocephalus(More)
UNLABELLED Pituitary adenomas are usually solitary lesions. Rarely, patients may present with two distinct pituitary tumors. We report a case of synchronous secretory pituitary adenomas in a woman who initially presented with elevated prolactin levels. She was initially treated with cabergoline, but, after many years, she began developing symptoms(More)
BACKGROUND The pathogenesis of adult chronic hydrocephalus is not fully understood, and the temporal relationship between development of the radiological changes and neurological deterioration is unknown. OBJECTIVE To clarify the progression of radiological-histological changes and subsequent clinical manifestations of adult chronic hydrocephalus. (More)
OBJECTIVE Few studies have focused on predictive factors of ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt revision in patients with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH). This study aims to determine whether comorbidities and baseline symptoms are associated with the need for shunt revision. METHODS A retrospective review of patients with iNPH treated with VP(More)
BACKGROUND Timely detection of intraorbital and skull base wooden foreign bodies is crucial. Wooden foreign bodies are difficult to detect on imaging. The radiologist may fail to identify wooden foreign bodies on two thirds of initial scans and can miss them in almost one third of total cases. CASE DESCRIPTION A 66-year-old woman sustained a penetrating(More)
INTRODUCTION Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) is a neurological disorder that classically presents with a triad of progressive gait impairment, urinary incontinence, and cognitive deterioration. Treatment predominantly involves ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunting, but one alternative is ventriculoatrial (VA) shunting. This study sought to(More)
