Total surgical resection is the treatment of choice for choroid plexus tumors. However, the hypervascular nature of such lesions imposes challenges to the surgical treatment. Preoperative embolization for intracranial tumors has been widely used in an attempt to reduce blood loss, but rarely with choroid plexus tumors. We describe the first case of(More)
Basilar artery is the second most common site of fenestration, after the anterior communicating region. It is believed this variation predisposes a patient to posterior aneurysm formation and increases the complexity of the surgical anatomy. Endovascular management has become the first option to treat these aneurysms. We retrospectively evaluated eight(More)
Isolated posterior inferior cerebellar artery dissecting aneurysms are rare lesions. Their underlying pathology, presentation, and natural history are poorly understood. Their treatment is controversial, and few data are available regarding the best treatment. We conducted the first study comparing selective coiling and parent artery occlusion for the(More)
Down syndrome is the most frequent genetic cause of mental retardation. Although usually presenting dysmorphic features and organ malformations, it is rarely associated with congenital hydrocephalus. The case of a male neonate whose hydrocephalus was detected since the pregnancy and was discovered to have the syndrome at birth is reported. Chromosomal(More)

The best management of brain arteriovenous malformations (BAVMs) remains controversial, since the annual risk of hemorrhage must be balanced against the significant morbimortality associated with the treatment [2]. The treatment of BAVMs includes different modalities such as microsurgery, embolization, and radiosurgery, either alone or in combination [1,(More)
The authors present a retrospective series of their clinical experience in the treatment of cavernous dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVF) by direct transorbital puncture of the cavernous sinus as an alternative to the endovascular approach. Between October 2012 and September 2014, eight patients harboring cavernous DAVF underwent percutaneous treatment by(More)
The Bilateral Medial Medullary Infarction presents with progressive tetraparesis, bilateral profound sensory loss, dysphagia and dysarthria, progressing to respiratory failure, which can be misdiagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome. The main cause its vertebral artery atherosclerosis and thrombosis affecting the anteromedial (supplied by branches of(More)
