BACKGROUND Venous hypertension is regarded as an important factor in the pathogenesis of dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF). We investigate histologic reaction of dural sinus under the condition of venous hypertension using a rat venous hypertension model to present hemodynamic and immunohistochemical effect in the development of DAVF. METHODS Twenty-four(More)
BACKGROUND A carotid artery aneurysm associated with vascular Behçet disease is extremely rare and often difficult to treat. In this article, we explore a definitive therapeutic strategy for pseudoaneurysm with vascular Behçet disease. CASE DESCRIPTION A 56-year-old man presented with swelling and a pulsatile subcutaneous mass of the left neck over a(More)
A 60-year-old man presented with a rare case of pseudoaneurysm in the petrous internal carotid artery (ICA) caused by chronic otitis media manifesting as right otorrhagia after the earpick procedure. Computed tomography showed the destroyed petrous bone; the ICA and the aneurysm, which were exposed to the right middle ear; and a massive hematoma in the(More)
To clarify the effect of surgery on the prevention cerebral hemorrhage in adult moyamoya disease, we compared postoperative courses between superficial temporal artery-middle cerebral artery (STA-MCA) anastomosis and conservative therapy. The study subjects were 30 adults with moyamoya disease. Unilateral STA-MCA anastomosis was conducted in 7 of these 30(More)
1. The lenticula nuclei have been suggested to be the site of structural and functional abnormalities in schizophrenia. 2. Recently, several studies involving proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H MRS) showed that the ratio of N-acetyl-aspartate (NAA) to choline-containing compounds (Cho) was significantly reduced in the basal ganglia region in(More)
OBJECTIVE Dural sinus thrombosis often accompanies or precedes the development of dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs). Because thrombophilic abnormalities can contribute to sinus thrombosis, we investigated the prevalence of such abnormalities and of venous sinus thrombosis in patients with DAVFs. METHODS Thrombophilic factors were measured in 18(More)
A 73-year-old male presented with a glioblastoma that was detected at the initial stage in the developmental process. He suffered cerebral infarction. Follow-up magnetic resonance (MR) imaging showed no abnormality. Ten months later, he had transient right hemiparesis. Diffusion-weighted and fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) MR imaging showed a(More)
A 47-year-old female had noticed diminished visual acuity in both eyes 2 months previously. The patient had vision loss (no light perception) in her right eye on admission. Her left visual acuity was 1.2 (naked vision) and an upper temporal quadrant hemianopsia was revealed in her left eye. Optic disc atrophy was also found bilaterally during a fundus(More)
The patient had thyroid cancer and underwent subtotal thyroidectomy. Local recurrence occurred on both sides 5 years and 6 months later. The sterno-hyoid muscle and sterno-thyroid muscle were severed and the tumor around the cricoid cartilage was removed. The tumor extended into the space between the right common carotid artery and internal jugular vein and(More)
