OBJECT Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome (RSTS) is a rare condition with characteristic genetic and clinical features. The presence of variable vertebral and neural axis abnormalities has been reported in the literature. We describe the possible association of multiple different spinal anomalies in these patients. RESULTS The radiological exams of two RSTS(More)
Intracranial collaterals provide residual blood flow to penumbral tissue in acute ischemic stroke and contribute to infarct size variability in humans. In the present study, hemodynamic monitoring of the borderzone territory between the leptomeningeal branches of middle cerebral artery and anterior cerebral artery was compared to lateral middle cerebral(More)
The translational potential of pre-clinical stroke research depends on the accuracy of experimental modeling. Cerebral perfusion monitoring in animal models of acute ischemic stroke allows to confirm successful arterial occlusion and exclude subarachnoid hemorrhage. Cerebral perfusion monitoring can also be used to study intracranial collateral circulation,(More)
Intracranial collaterals are dynamically recruited after arterial occlusion and are emerging as a strong determinant of tissue outcome in both human and experimental ischemic stroke. The relationship between collateral flow and ischemic penumbra remains largely unexplored in pre-clinical studies. The aim of the present study was to investigate the pattern(More)
INTRODUCTION Selective naming categories impairments for living and non-living things are widely reported in brain damaged patients. Electrostimulation mapping was used to study the possible anatomical segregation of living/non-living categories in a prospective series of patients operated on for tumor removal. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty brain mappings(More)
BACKGROUND The cavum veli interpositi (CVI) usually is a small CSF-containing abnormality of septum pellucidum, asymptomatic and rare after the age of 3 years. When symptomatic, it is large and can be related to psychiatric disorders, syndromic association of mental retardation and seizures or to hydrocephalus. METHODS This is the first reported case of(More)
