We describe the molecular basis of a distinctive syndrome characterized by infantile stress-induced episodic weakness, ataxia, and sensorineural hearing loss, with permanent areflexia and optic nerve pallor. Whole exome sequencing identified a deleterious heterozygous c.2452 G>A, p.(E818K) variant in the ATP1A3 gene and structural analysis predicted its(More)
The analysis of the results of bilateral monitoring of the depth of anesthesia in 22 patients with neurosurgical pathology of the posterior cranial fossa using the technique bispectral index (BIS). The results showed that more than half of the observations (at 19 and 22 patients) during the main phase of the operation (removal of the tumor) were observed(More)
The paper gives the results of analyzing the hemostatic system in 26 patients with various neurosurgical diseases on the basis of routine laboratory biochemical tests and thromboelastographic indicators. In all the patients, the pattern of the disease contained an epilepsy syndrome that required mono- or combination therapy with valproic acid. Laboratory(More)
The paper gives the results of a study of the time course of changes in the major laboratorily determined hemostatic parameters, as well as the main characteristics of a thromboelastographic curve in 95 neurosurgical patients who developed significant intraoperative blood loss at surgery. The patients were divided into 2 comparable groups: 1) a decision on(More)
Lafora disease (LD) is a fatal progressive epilepsy essentially caused by loss-of-function mutations in the glycogen phosphatase laforin or the ubiquitin E3 ligase malin. Glycogen in LD is hyperphosphorylated and poorly hydrosoluble. It precipitates and accumulates into neurotoxic Lafora bodies (LBs). The leading LD hypothesis that hyperphosphorylation(More)
The hemostasis state was assessed by routine tests and TEG in 169 patients on long term aspirin therapy. According to TEG results all the patients were divided into three groups: normo-, hypo- and hypercoagulation. The aspirin therapy was interrupted in normo- and hypercoagulation groups, but the surgery was not postponed. In cases of hypocoagulation the(More)
The article presents the description of clinical observation, in which spinal neurosurgical intervention was successfully made in a patient with ESRD, receiving chronic hemodialysis for 20 years. In this context, we discuss the various clinical and tactical aspects of the management of patients with this severe co-pathology: infusion-transfussion therapy,(More)
The paper gives a clinical example of embolization of the vascular network of carotid paraganglioma with subsequent en-block tumor removal with bifurcation of the common carotid artery and with recovery of great blood flow along the internal carotid artery through alloprosthesis of the latter. The positive effects of a combination of endovascular(More)
A clinical case of successful use of 4% modified liquid gelatin (Helofusin, B. Braun, Germany) at a single-stage infusion volume of 4.5 liters (!) is described in a neurosurgical patient with the single during removal of a giant parietooccipal tumor complicated by rapid massive operative blood loss. The paper discusses the side effects of artificial(More)
The results of using three infusion solutions, such as 6% hydroxyexyethyl starch (HES) 200/0.5 (HaesSteril), HES 130/0.4 (Voluven), and 4% modified gelatin solution (Gelofusin), were compared in 33 patients with neurosurgical diseases of the brain (supratentorial meningovascular tumors) and predictable massive intraoperative blood loss during acute(More)
