OBJECT Microarteriovenous malformations (micro-AVMs) are a rare subgroup of brain AVMs characterized by a nidus smaller than 1 cm. The authors' purpose in this study was to assess the clinical presentation, radiological features, therapeutic management, and outcome of these lesions. METHODS All angiography studies performed at the authors' institution(More)
Hirayama disease, or juvenile amyotrophy of distal upper extremity, is a benign, self-limiting cervical myelopathy consisting of selective unilateral weakness of the hand and forearm. The weakness slowly progresses until spontaneous arrest occurs within 5 years of onset. The condition predominantly affects Asian males and is thought to be secondary to(More)
Traumatic intracerebral hemorrhage (TICH) represents 13-48% of the lesions after a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The frequency of TICH-hemorrhagic progression (TICH-HP) is estimated to be approximately 38-63%. The relationship between the impact site and TICH location has been described in many autopsy-based series. This association, however, has not been(More)
The authors describe a patient with delayed thoracic spinal cord compression due to fibrous scar tissue around an epidural electrode used in spinal cord stimulation (SCS). One year after implantation of the system the stimulation became ineffective, and 1 year later the patient developed progressive paraparesis. There was no evidence of device-related(More)
BACKGROUND Ependymomas are the most common intramedullary tumors in adults and are the most common in mid-adult years. The presence of synchronous ependymomas in different sites of the spine is not common and it is even more infrequent to find hemorrhage from a spinal ependymoma as a cause of neurological deterioration. CASE DESCRIPTION A 32-year-old man(More)
BACKGROUND Subdural posttraumatic collections are called usually Traumatic Subdural Hygroma (TSH). TSH is an accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the subdural space after head injury. These collections have also been called Traumatic Subdural Effusion (TSE) or External Hydrocephalous (EHP) according to liquid composition, or image features. There is(More)

Entrapment of the temporal horn is a rare form of noncommunicating focal hydrocephalus. Standard treatment has not yet been established for this condition, and only a few cases have been reported in the literature. The authors reviewed their cases of temporal horn entrapment treated between May 2013 and December 2014 and report their experience with(More)
BACKGROUND Rupture is the most serious consequence of cerebral aneurysms, and its likelihood depends on nonmodifiable and modifiable risk factors. Recent efforts have focused on analyzing the effects of hemodynamic forces on the initiation, growth, and rupture of cerebral aneurysms. Studies of the role of hemodynamics in the physiopathology of intracranial(More)
Prognostic models that were developed by the International Mission on Prognosis and Analysis of Clinical Trials in Traumatic Brain Injury (IMPACT) study group and the Corticosteroid Randomization After Signification Head injury (CRASH) collaborators are the most commonly used prognostic models for outcome after traumatic brain injury (TBI). Although they(More)
BACKGROUND and Purpose: Spinal Cord Injury without Computed Tomography evidence of Trauma (SCIWOCTET) is underreported in adults and is considered a subtype of SCI with relatively good outcomes. Despite this, few studies have been performed to determine specific imaging-related prognostic factors. Our objective is to describe the imaging characteristics of(More)
