Intracranial suppurative disease. Early presumptive diagnosis and successful treatment without surgery.
Six cases of documented focal intracranial infection in which abscess development was either aborted or reversed stress the feasibility of early diagnosis and appropriate antibiotic therapy without surgery. Expand
Prognostic significance of magnetic resonance imaging in the acute phase of cervical spine injury.
It is suggested that the MR imaging pattern observed in the acutely injured human spinal cord has a prognostic significance in the final outcome of the motor system. Expand
The pathophysiological response to spinal cord injury. The current status of related research.
- J. Osterholm
- Journal of neurosurgery
This review of spinal cord injury research has placed special emphasis on the controversial issues appropriate to a new, stimulating, and competitive area of research. Expand
Altered norepinephrine metabolism following experimental spinal cord injury. 1. Relationship to hemorrhagic necrosis and post-wounding neurological deficits.
It is hypothesized that toxic quantities of tissue NE induce intense vasospasm which impedes or arrests cord perfusion and causes the neuronal necrosis, vascular rupture, and parenchymal self-destruction manifest as central hemorrhagic necrosis. Expand
Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Acute Cervical Spine Trauma: Correlation with Severity of Neurologic Injury
Preliminary experience indicates that magnetic resonance Imaging (MRI) more accurately defines the extent of soft tissue damage in the zone of injury and certain patterns of MRI signal were associated with severe neurologic deficit. Expand
Reanalysis of central cervical cord injury management.
Experience with central cervical spinal cord injuries indicates that in selected patients operative intervention may be of value in improving the rate and degree of motor recovery. Expand
Altered norepinephrine metabolism, following experimental spinal cord injury. 2. Protection against traumatic spinal cord hemorrhagic necrosis by norepinephrine synthesis blockade with alpha methyl…
These experiments strongly support the NE hypothesis of spinal cord injury; when NE hypersynthesis was prevented, the characteristic hemorrhagic necrotic lesions of the central gray did not occur. Expand
The treatment of metastatic spinal cord tumors.
The more rapid the rate of progression, the longer the duration and the more severe the degree of neurological deficit, the less favorable is the prognosis concerning return of motor function. Expand
METABOLIC RESPONSE TO THERMAL TRAUMA OF NORMAL AND THYROPRIVIC RATS AT THREE ENVIRONMENTAL TEMPERATURES
Experimental effects of free serotonin on the brain and its relation to brain injury. 2. Trauma-induced alterations in spinal fluid and brain.
