Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) rhinorrhea occurs due to communication between the intracranial subarachnoid space and the sinonasal mucosa. It could be due to trauma, raised intracranial pressure (ICP), tumors, erosive diseases, and congenital skull defects. Some leaks could be spontaneous without any specific etiology. The potential leak sites include the(More)
We present RODEO, a RObust and rapidly DEplOyable wireless mesh network designed for applications such as disaster management. Natural disasters often destroy existing communication infrastructure, thus forcing rescue teams to deploy their own networks for communication. Such networks must be rapidly deployable, capable of recovering from node failure, have(More)
BACKGROUND Pituitary masses are common lesions accounting for about 15-20% of all brain tumours. Oozing blood is an annoyance in microscopic sublabial trans-sphenoidal approach for these masses. There have been many ways of reducing the ooze, having their own pros and cons. OBJECTIVE To find out the efficacy and safety of clonidine in reducing blood loss(More)
Introduction Posterior midline laminectomy is associated with risks of postoperative instability, spinal deformity, extensive bilateral subperiosteal muscle stripping, partial or total facetectomy especially in foraminal tumor extension, increased cerebrospinal fluid leakage, and wound infection. Minimally invasive approaches with the help of a microscope(More)
Although endoscopic techniques have many advantages including improved visualizations and magnification., these are also associated with limitations. Objective of this study is to discuss practical aspects that can reduce complications after endoscopic procedures, and their management. Review is based on personal experience of more than 2000 neuroendoscopic(More)
INTRODUCTION There is lack of uniformity about the preferred surgical treatment, role of drain, and type of drain among various surgeons in chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH). The present study is aimed to evaluate role of subgaleal drain. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a prospective study of 260 patients of CSDH treated surgically. Burr-hole irrigation(More)
Acute bilateral facial nerve paralysis is a rare clinical entity, and its management remains very controversial (operative or conservative).
