Peroneal nerve entrapment is most commonly seen in the popliteal fossa. It is rarely caused by a ganglion. Intraneural ganglia, although uncommon and seldom cause serious complications, are well recognized and most commonly affect the common peroneal (lateral popliteal) nerve. Ganglionic cysts developing in the sheath of a peripheral nerve or joint capsule(More)
This study reviewed the surgical management of cirsoid aneurysms of the scalp, which are rarely encountered in the neurosurgical practice, and compares the results with embolization. 21 patients with cirsoid aneurysm underwent surgery. There were 1 female and 20 male patients. Trauma was present in four patients. Selective internal and external carotid(More)
BACKGROUND Although many experimental and clinical studies were performed on the pathophysiology and treatment of spinal cord injury (SCI), the electrophysiological and ultrastructural changes of the spinal cord were not precisely evaluated. AIMS To investigate the effect of mannitol on Somatosensory Evoked Potentials (SSEP), postoperative neurological(More)
OBJECT The structure of the filum terminale (FT) is important in the development of tethered cord syndrome (TCS) in children. Although many studies have been performed on the histological structure of the FT in adults, there has been no detailed investigation for those of fetuses. The aim of this study was to examine the histological structure of the FT in(More)
Temporary tattoos, especially those that contain black dyes, have become rampant among teenagers in recent years. Most of these tattoos, in addition to hair dyes include paraphenylenediamine (PPD). PPD is a well-known skin sensitizer, which causes allergic contact dermatitis. Allergic contact dermatitis skin lesions from PPD are mostly seen as erythema(More)
AIM The brachial plexus (BP) has a complex structure and risky relations with its neighborhoods. This study was designed to investigate and overcome the morphometric features of the BP and the difficulties regarding surgery of BP lesions. MATERIAL AND METHOD Twelve BP of six adult cadavers were dissected and neural structures, branches, and variations(More)
STUDY DESIGN Clinical study. PURPOSE The dimensions of the working zone for endoscopic lumbar discectomy should be evaluated by preoperative magnetic resonance images. The aim of this study was to analyze the angle of the roots, root area, and foraminal area. OVERVIEW OF LITERATURE Few studies have reported on the triangular working zone during(More)
AIM Optimal surgical pathway for lateral ventricle tumors is still controversial. The purpose of this study is to discuss the factors that affected the preference of the surgical techniques for removing lateral ventricle tumors. MATERIAL AND METHODS 46 consecutive patients underwent operation for lateral ventricle tumors. The mean age was 36 years.(More)
AIM Surgery is the treatment of choice for children who had tethered cord syndrome (TCS). However, a detailed technique for the release of spinal cord is not described yet. The aims of this study are to present our series of TCS in children and to focus on the details of surgical technique. MATERIAL and METHODS Forty-nine children with(More)
BACKGROUND The structural changes in filum terminale (FT) may be responsible for tethered cord syndrome (TCS) in children. Although the histological changes in FT related to TCS are well-known, there is no comparative study of the changes which occur in TCS and normal fetal FT samples. The aims of this study are to compare the histological changes which(More)
