Multislice-computed tomography (MSCT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are increasingly used for forensic purposes. Based on broad experience in clinical neuroimaging, post-mortem MSCT and MRI were performed in 57 forensic cases with the goal to evaluate the radiological methods concerning their usability for forensic head and brain examination. An(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of in situ postmortem multislice computed tomography (MSCT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the detection of primary traumatic extra-axial hemorrhage. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty forensic neurotrauma cases and 10 nontraumatic controls who underwent both in situ postmortem cranial MSCT and MR imaging(More)
PURPOSE We tested the hypothesis that whiplash trauma leads to changes of the signal intensity of cervical discs in T2-weighted images. METHODS AND MATERIALS 50 whiplash patients (18-65 years) were examined within 48h after motor vehicle accident, and again after 3 and 6 months and compared to 50 age- and sex-matched controls. Signal intensity in ROI's of(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Intravenous thrombolysis and mechanical thrombectomy predominantly using stent retrievers have been shown to effectively restore cerebral blood flow and improve functional outcome in patients with acute ischemic stroke. We sought to determine the safety and feasibility of mechanical thrombectomy using the new ERIC retrieval device. (More)
The objective was to study the lipoprotein levels in primary hyperuricaemic patients and to analyse their renal management or urates in order to check for some potential influence of altered lipid levels on the renal excretion of urates by this type of patient. Overall 115 male individuals were studied in five groups, namely: 30 primary hyperuricaemic(More)
Magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound surgery (MRgFUS) allows for precise thermal ablation of target tissues. While this emerging modality is increasingly used for the treatment of various types of extracranial soft tissue tumors, it has only recently been acknowledged as a modality for noninvasive neurosurgery. MRgFUS has been particularly(More)
We studied changes in the hyperuricaemia-associated lipid phenotypes of primary hyperuricaemic-hyperlipidemic patients, none of whom was obese, hypertensive or an alcohol drinker. The patients were monitored for three months during which they were placed on a strict diet. The results obtained showed that phenotype IIB was most frequently associated with(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Carotid stenosis (CS) with intraluminal carotid artery thrombus (ICAT) is rare but ominous finding. The optimal treatment modality is unclear. The aim of this study was to analyze the feasibility and outcome of acute endovascular intervention and delayed elective endovascular therapy after initial anticoagulation in these delicate(More)
A substitutive anticoagulant therapy is requested when HIT is associated with thombosis. LMWH have been proposed in this setting, but were occasionally suspected to sustain platelet consumption. An association with aspirin, which can prevent in vitro heparin-induced platelet aggregation, has been evaluated in a prospective clinical trial. Fourteen(More)
OBJECTIVE Catheter malpositioning is one of the most frequent causes of ventriculoperitoneal shunt dysfunction and revision surgery. Most intraoperative tools used to improve the accuracy of catheter insertion are time consuming and expensive or do not display the final position. We evaluate the usefulness of intraoperative fluoroscopy to decrease catheter(More)
