The best operative intervention for children with arachnoid cysts remains the subject of controversy. Recent reports stress that craniotomy for cyst fenestration is associated with a low incidence of morbidity and mortality and may leave the child shunt-independent. Among a total of 66 intracranial arachnoid cysts operated on in the authors’ department from(More)
Objective. Intra-operative MRI (iMRI) is used as an immediate intra-operative quality control, allowing surgeons to extend resections in situations involving residual tumour remnants. Despite these advantages, low-field iMRI has some limitations with regards to image quality and artefacts. The aim of this study is to report our experience with bone wax and(More)
Based on observations obtained with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope obtained at the Space Telescope Science Institute, which is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, Inc. (AURA) under NASA contract NAS 5-26555; observations collected at the European Southern Observatory, Chile (ESO Programmes 168.A-0845, 64.O-0643,(More)
A patient with biopsy-proven lymphomatoid granulomatosis of the brain as the sole manifestation of the disease is described. During 14 months of follow-up since surgical excision of the cerebral mass, no evidence of recurrent brain involvement or of extracranial lesions has been found. This case is unusual in the confinement of the disease to the central(More)
Although pituitary adenomas and Rathke’s cleft cysts have a shared ancestry, they rarely occur simultaneously. Only 32 reports involving a pituitary adenoma and a concomitant Rathke’s cleft cyst were identified upon review of the literature. Most initial presenting complaints include hormonal symptoms, visual disturbances, and headache. Next to growth(More)
During the breeding season in Korea (September 1997 to April 1998), a goat embryo recovery and transfer program using a Korean native strain (Capra hircus aegagrus) was performed for the production of transgenic goats. Donors were synchronized with norgestomet implants and superovulated by a combined treatment with FSH and hCG. The treatment regime induced(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are often known to have a therapeutic potential in the cell-mediated repair for fatal or incurable diseases. In this study, canine umbilical cord MSCs (cUC-MSCs) were isolated from umbilical cord matrix (n = 3) and subjected to proliferative culture for 5 consecutive passages. The cells at each passage were characterized for(More)
Explants of germinating zygotic embryos of Eleutherococcus sessiliflorus,an important medicinal plant, produced somatic embryos directly on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium with 4.5 μM 2,4-D. In addition, embryogenic callus formed at a low frequency (less than 7%) from hypocotyl segments after prolonged culture. High frequency somatic embryogenesis was(More)
Measurements of cross sections of inelastic and diffractive processes in proton–proton collisions at LHC energies were carried out with the ALICE detector. The fractions of diffractive processes in inelastic collisions were determined from a study of gaps in charged particle pseudorapidity distributions: for single diffraction (diffractive mass MX < 200(More)
