INTRODUCTION Surgery is first-line therapy for glioblastoma, and there is evidence that gross total resection is associated with improved survival. Gross total resection, however, is not always possible, and relationships among extent (percent) of resection (EOR), residual volume (RV), and survival are unknown. The goals were to evaluate whether there is an(More)
OBJECTIVE The efficacy of extensive resection on prolonging survival for patients with glioblastoma (GBM) is controversial because prior studies have included tumors with dissimilar resection capabilities. The true isolated effect of increasing resection on survival for GBM therefore remains unclear. METHODS Adult patients who underwent surgery of an(More)
INTRODUCTION Atypical choroid plexus papilloma is a rare tumour, recently defined by the World Health Organisation and with very few cases reported to date. Choroid plexus tumours are rare intraventricular neoplasms originating from choroid plexus epithelium, with benign papillomas being more frequent than carcinomas. Most of these lesions appear in(More)
A subset of patients with glioblastoma (GBM) have butterfly GBM (bGBM) that involve both cerebral hemispheres by crossing the corpus callosum. The prognoses, as well as the effectiveness of surgery and adjuvant therapy, are unclear because studies are few and limited. The goals of this study were to: (1) determine if bGBM have worse outcomes than patients(More)
Spinal vascular lesions are rare and may be classified as a) dural arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs), b) arteriovenous malformations, or c) perimedullary AVFs. In this narrated video illustration, we present the case of a 71-year-old woman who presented with progressive bilateral lower extremity weakness and urinary retention who was diagnosed with a thoracic(More)
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)
BACKGROUND Shunted patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) often present to the emergency department (ED) for symptoms related to their disease. Although brain imaging with computed tomography (CT) is often performed, particularly in the current medicolegal environment, its utility during these ED visits is unclear. METHODS The ED visits(More)
OBJECTIVES Shunt series and shunt patency studies can be performed in the emergency department (ED) to evaluate for shunt malfunction in patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH). Here, we examine the utility of these studies in this specific patient population. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the ED visits of all shunted patients(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)
