UNLABELLED Experience regarding O-(2-(18)F-fluoroethyl)-L-tyrosine ((18)F-FET) PET in children and adolescents with brain tumors is limited. METHODS Sixty-nine (18)F-FET PET scans of 48 children and adolescents (median age, 13 y; range, 1-18 y) were analyzed retrospectively. Twenty-six scans to assess newly diagnosed cerebral lesions, 24 scans for(More)
OBJECT The goal of this study was to evaluate the long-term results of a flow-regulating shunt (Orbis Sigma Valve [OSV] II Smart Valve System; Integra NeuroSciences, Sophia Antipolis, France) in the treatment of hydrocephalus, whether it was a first insertion procedure or surgical revision of another type of shunt, in everyday clinical practice in a(More)
The best therapeutic management for infantile hydrocephalus is not always obvious. Traditionally, shunt insertion has been performed when CSF dynamics have been considered abnormal. However, in cases of noncommunicating hydrocephalus endoscopic III ventriculostomy (ETV) has become a well-established treatment modality, but despite clinical and radiological(More)
Although rare, brain tumours represent one of the relatively larger groups of congenital neoplasias. Most studies on congenital neoplastic disease deal with several types of neoplasms and are dominated by leukaemias, retinoblastomas and systemic solid tumours. Few studies are dedicated to congenital brain tumours. We present nine newborns (four boys and(More)
PURPOSE To determine the frequency, distribution according to diagnosis and the recurrence frequency of orbital space-occupying lesions in Denmark, to determine sex and age of the patients and to establish a national orbital data register. METHODS All biopsied/surgically removed orbital lesions collected by Danish pathological departments during the(More)
These clinical guidelines outline the criteria and recommendations for diagnostic and genetic work-up of families suspected of von Hippel-Lindau disease (vHL), as well as recommendations for prophylactic surveillance for vHL patients. The guideline has been composed by the Danish Coordination Group for vHL which is comprised of Danish doctors and(More)
Sequentially evolved bilateral epidural haematomas, where the second haematoma evolves after surgical removal of the first haematoma, are rarely reported. We report two cases of this entity. One patient was involved in a road traffic accident and the other was suffering from a head injury after an assault. CT scans showed that both patients had an(More)
OBJECTIVE Quantitatively assess 3D spatially detailed soft-tissue facial asymmetry in children who had undergone craniofacial reconstruction for Unicoronal Synostosis (UCS), and compare the facial asymmetry to control patients. It was hypothesized that there would be no significant differences in the facial asymmetry between the groups. DESIGN Clinical,(More)
Medulloblastoma is the most common malignant brain tumor in childhood. Radical surgery in the non-metastatic stage is an important factor with respect to overall survival. In this case, 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) was used at second-look surgery in order to improve surgical results. The child was pretreated with 3 × 4 mg dexamethasone for 4 days prior to(More)
INTRODUCTION The first edition of this national clinical guideline was published in 2002 after an extensive review of the international literature and the long standing Danish experience and praxis performed by a working group of Danish doctors and other specialists interested in vHL. The second revised edition came in 2005. Since then, Denmark has hosted(More)
