OBJECT Recent studies have shown that posterior circulation aneurysms, specifically posterior communicating artery (PCoA) aneurysms, are more likely to rupture than other aneurysms. To date, few studies have investigated the factors contributing to PCoA aneurysm rupture. The authors aimed to identify morphological and clinical characteristics predisposing(More)
Previous studies have shown a relationship between diffuse axonal injury (DAI) and unfavorable clinical outcome in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI), but it remains unclear whether the type of DAI lesion influences outcome after TBI. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether 1-year outcome after TBI differed between patients with(More)
OBJECTIVE Some studies have investigated the relationship between anatomic location and outcome in patients with cerebellar hemorrhage (CH), but not as yet the relationship between location of CH, as categorized according to vascular territory, and outcome. Furthermore, other studies have shown that taking antithrombotics was related to having CH; however,(More)
Some reports have suggested that the location of primary intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is affected by oral antithrombotic agents (ATs). This is important, given the increasing use of ATs to treat arteriosclerotic disease. The aim of this study was to explore whether oral AT therapy increase the incidence of any specific location of primary ICH. A(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Spontaneous intradural vertebral artery dissection (siVAD) primarily causes stroke in young and middle-aged individuals; however, data on the relationship between vertebrobasilar morphology and the progression of siVAD are limited. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the data of 77 adult patients who were diagnosed with unruptured(More)
OBJECTIVE The conventional methods for the estimation of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) using ¹²³I-labeled N-isopropyl-p-iodoamphetamine (¹²³I IMP) autoradiography (ARG) require continuous or 1-point arterial blood sampling. Patients who need rCBF quantification benefit from the avoidance of arterial puncture. In this study, we attempted to develop a(More)
OBJECT Previous studies have shown a relationship between a patient's stage of diffuse axonal injury (DAI) and outcome. However, few studies have assessed whether a specific lesion or type of corpus callosum injury (CCI) influences outcome in patients with DAI. The authors investigated the effect of various DAIs and CCIs on outcome in patients with(More)
OBJECT Intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) is widely regarded as one element of a complex involving severe blunt traumatic brain injury (TBI); corpus callosum injury (CCI) is recently considered to be one factor associated with poor outcome in patients with TBI. Although postmortem studies have focused on the relationship between IVH and CCI, there have been(More)
OBJECTIVE The influence of blood alcohol level (BAL) on outcome remains unclear. This study investigated the relationships between BAL, type and number of diffuse axonal injury (DAI), intraventricular bleeding (IVB) and 6-month outcome. METHODS This study reviewed 419 patients with isolated blunt traumatic brain injury. First, it compared clinical and(More)
OBJECTIVES To measure cerebral blood flow with 15O'PET, it is necessary to measure the time course of arterial blood radioactivity. We examined the performance of three different types of continuous blood sampling system. METHODS Three kinds of continuous blood sampling system were used: a plastic scintillator-based beta detector (conventional beta(More)
