Surgical treatment of chronic subdural hematoma in 500 consecutive cases: clinical characteristics, surgical outcome, complications, and recurrence rate.
Old age, pre-existing cerebral infarction, and persistence of subdural air after surgery were significantly correlated with poor brain re-expansion (p < 0.001), which will further improve the surgical outcome for patients with CSDH. Expand
Arachnoid cyst is a risk factor for chronic subdural hematoma in juveniles: twelve cases of chronic subdural hematoma associated with arachnoid cyst.
It is concluded that even a small arachnoid cyst can be a risk factor for CSDH after mild head injury in young patients and symptoms of increased intracranial pressure are common. Expand
Pure Acute Subdural Haematoma Without Subarachnoid Haemorrhage Caused by Rupture of Internal Carotid Artery Aneurysm
Surgery to remove the haematoma and clip the aneurysm showed the rupture point was located in the anterior petroclinoid fold (subdural space) and the patient recovered without neurological deficits. Expand
Assessment of prognostic factors in severe traumatic brain injury patients treated by mild therapeutic cerebral hypothermia therapy
Hypothermia therapy can improve outcome in patients with traumatic brain injury who are younger than 50 years old, without severe brain damage, and if improvement of cerebral perfusion is expected. Expand
Early external decompressive craniectomy with duroplasty improves functional recovery in patients with massive hemispheric embolic infarction: timing and indication of decompressive surgery for
Early decompressive craniectomy with duroplasty before the onset of brain herniation should be performed to achieve satisfactory functional recovery if the infarct volume of the hemispheric cerebral infarction is more than 200 cm(3) and computed tomography on the second day after the ictus shows mass effect. Expand
Hemorheological and hemodynamic analysis of hypervolemic hemodilution therapy for cerebral vasospasm after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage.
Improvement of hemorheological and hemodynamic parameters by this therapy can reverse neurological deterioration due to cerebral vasospasm and decrease hematocrit level and red cell aggregability while increasing cardiac output. Expand
Aggressive Decompressive Surgery in Patients with Massive Hemispheric Embolic Cerebral Infarction Associated with Severe Brain Swelling
An infarct volume of more than 240 cm3 on CT and angiographic recanalization of the occluded artery are predictors of fatal brain swelling after massive cerebral infarction and decompressive surgical treatment dramatically improves the mortality. Expand
Labyrinthine and visual inputs to the superior colliculus neurons.
Publisher Summary The superior colliculus receive substantial input from both the retina and visual cortex as well as from the contralateral superior colliculus in the cat and the rat. The prominenceExpand
Temporal profile of changes in brain tissue extracellular space and extracellular ion (Na(+), K(+)) concentrations after cerebral ischemia and the effects of mild cerebral hypothermia.
The present study shows that ischemic cellular swelling (decreased ECS) occurs concomitantly with the phase 1 increase of [K(+)](e) but precedes the disruption of ionic membrane homeostasis (phase 2). Expand
Dissecting aneurysm confined to the anterior cerebral artery
Four patients presented with dissecting aneurysms confined to the anterior cerebral artery, two with cerebral infarctions in the territories of the ACA and two with subarachnoid haemorrhages, with conservative treatment and early wrapping surgery recommended. Expand
