In two cases intracranial extension of mucoceles of the paranasal sinus was safely removed by intranasal evacuation and drainage of the lesions located in the paranasal sinus. The diagnosis was ascertained in both cases via intranasal approach. In addition, the volume of the intracranial lesions was reduced. This procedure is both effective and a less(More)

The incidence of late infection after cranioplasty was studied in 130 patients with 133 cranioplasties. The materials used were prefabricated resin in 62 cases, autogenic bone in 38, intraoperatively fashioned resin in 25, and vitallium in eight. Six infections were documented, for an infection rate of 4.5%. In addition to these six cases, we studied eight(More)

The effects of an anti-siphon device (ASD) on shunt flow and intracranial pressure (ICP) in 16 children with hypertensive hydrocephalus were examined using quantitative radionuclide shuntography (99mTc) with the children in supine and sitting positions. The average age of these patients was 9.5 years. Results were compared with those recorded in 36 patients(More)
The pharmacological profile of FK480[(S)-(+)-N-<1-(2)-fluorophenyl)-3,4,6,7-tetra hydro-4-oxo-pyrrolo(3,2,1-jk) (1,4)benzodiaze-pine-3-yl>-1H-indole-2- carboxamide], a novel cholecystokinin type-A (CCK-A) receptor antagonist, was compared with that of the CCK-A receptor antagonist, loxiglumide. Both FK480 and loxiglumide inhibited 125I-labeled CCK-8(More)

Prolonged vasospasm was produced in the canine basilar artery by injection of 0.75 ml/kg of fresh autologous arterial blood into the cisterna magna (subarachnoid hemorrhage, SAH group) or by subarachnoid application of oxyhemoglobin (oxyHb induced group). Lipoperoxide contents of the arterial wall was measured by thiobarbituric acid test. Prostaglandin I2(More)
Intracranial fibrous xanthoma is extremely rare; only 11 cases have been reported so far. The authors report a case of multicentric intracranial fibrous xanthoma. Precontrast computed tomographic (CT) scans revealed a left frontal subdural mass, which had previously been diagnosed as a chronic subdural hematoma at another hospital. However, operation(More)
