The microscopic appearance of a rat spinal cord which was acutely compressed by aneurysmal clip for one minute, was investigated 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 3 hours and 6 hours after the injury. Although the resulting small hemorrhagic lesion involved primarily only the central gray matter of the injured portion 15 minutes after compression injury,(More)
Simultaneous measurements of spinal cord blood flow and arterial diameter at areas adjacent to a site of spinal cord injury were carried out to determine changes in CO(2) reactivity and autoregulation. The spinal cord injury was made at T10 level by the epidural clip compression method. A spinal window was drilled at an area either 7 mm caudal or 7 mm(More)
BACKGROUND Beneficial effects of hyperbaric oxygen on ischemic vascular diseases have been noted. Acceleration of wound healing with basic fibroblast growth factor has also been reported. The authors employed combination therapy of hyperbaric oxygen and basic fibroblast growth factor in patients with skin ulcer in legs refractory to conventional therapy. (More)
It is well known that the worsening of neurological findings after spinal cord injury is due to the secondary progression of pathological changes which may be caused by spinal cord blood flow disturbance. We measured spinal blood flow of 5mm rostrally and caudally distant portions from the injured point, using the laser Doppler flowmeter experimentally.(More)
A case of a huge skull base neurofibroma completely resected by a combined subtemporal-infratemporal and basal subfrontal approach is reported. A 32-year-old female complained of left facial paresthesia and deformity since several months before. Neurological examination revealed hypesthesia in the distribution of the left trigeminal nerve second branch. CT(More)
