Mitochondrial alterations of retinal pigment epithelium in age-related macular degeneration
TLDR
The findings suggest that the severity of mitochondrial and peroxisomal alterations are different between AMD and normal aging, and the timing of damage to RPE may be critical for the development of AMD, and alterations of mitochondrial membranes may play a role in the pathogenesis of AMD. Expand
Spinal glioblastomas: report of seven cases and review of the literature.
TLDR
Seven cases of intramedullary glioblastomas are reported and the salient features of these tumors, particularly the pathological features and treatment, are discussed in light of the relevant literature. Expand
Intraneural synovial cyst of the peroneal nerve: report of two cases and review of the literature.
TLDR
Two cases of peroneal nerve compression caused by an intraneural synovial cyst are reported and the pathogenesis, clinical and electrophysiological diagnosis, and treatment of these uncommon lesions are discussed. Expand
Development of the blood-brain barrier: a historical point of view.
TLDR
The historical background underlying the current knowledge of the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the development and maintenance of the endothelial blood-brain barrier is summarized. Expand
Radiological evidence of anatomical variation of the inferior vena cava: Report of two cases
TLDR
Two cases of IVC variation are presented as an incidental finding in patients studied by means of CT scan for the gradation of kidney carcinoma and pancreatic cancer respectively. Expand
Surgical anatomy of the radial nerve at the elbow
TLDR
This study provides reliable and objective data of surgical anatomy of the radial nerve which should be always kept in mind by surgeons approaching to the surgery of the arm, in order to avoid iatrogenic injuries. Expand
Bone autografting of the calvaria and craniofacial skeleton: historical background, surgical results in a series of 15 patients, and review of the literature.
TLDR
The mechanical, immunologic, and technical-grafting properties of autologous bone, together with its superior esthetic and psychological effects, probably make it the best material for cranioplasty. Expand
Glossopharyngeal neuralgia with cardiac syncope
TLDR
This work presents 5 cases of this uncommon syndrome, of a total of 15 observed cases of glossopharyngeal neuralgia, successfully treated by section of the rootlets of Cranial Nerves IX and X or by microvascular decompression in the posterior cranial fossa. Expand
Benign neural sheath tumours of major nerves: Characteristics in 119 surgical cases
TLDR
It is demonstrated that it is often possible to remove schwannomas as well as neurofibromas with an acceptable risk of injury to the nerve in patients with spontaneous benign nerve sheath tumours of the peripheral nervous system. Expand
Primary spinal epidural non-Hodgkin's lymphomas: a clinical study.
TLDR
It appears that the outcome in patients with primary epidural non-Hodgkin's lymphomas depends on the gravity of preoperative deficits, whereas the survival is influenced by the type of treatment. Expand
