Acute subdural spinal hematoma occurs rarely; however, when it does occur, it may have disastrous consequences. The authors assessed the outcome of surgery for this lesion in relation to causative factors and diagnostic imaging (computerized tomography [CT], CT myelography), as well as eventual preservation of the subarachnoid space. The authors reviewed(More)
The authors report their experience and long-term results in the surgical treatment of 61 tentorial meningiomas. These cases were operated on between 1951 and 1985 and represented 4.8% of all intracranial meningiomas operated on in that period. The mean duration of clinical history was 29 months, except for cases of meningioma of the posteromedial border,(More)
The 22 cases of spinal meningioma with severe motor deficit operated on during a 34-year span are reviewed. The motor deficit is graded according to a modified version of the scale proposed by Levy et al. in 1982, their grade IV being split into grade IV (toe movements and muscular concentrations) and grade V (paraplegia). All 10 grade IV patients were able(More)
OBJECT Arachnoid cysts are relatively common congenital intracranial mass lesions that arise during the development of the meninges. They can be complicated by the formation of an ipsilateral chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) after minor cranial trauma. Treatment of these coexisting conditions remains controversial. In this study the authors describe the(More)
Study design. Spinal subarachnoid hematomas are unusual and difficult to diagnose and the outcome of treatment is influenced by the lesions that frequently accompany them. Objectives. To clarify the neuroradiological diagnostic aspects of spinal subarachnoid hematoma as well as the results of treatment. Background. Only recently has subarachnoid hematoma(More)
This report presents a very rare case of metastatic meningioma of the parotid gland from a recurring intracranial lesion. The primary tumor, intracranial residues, and parotid metastasis were histologically benign. Meningiomas rarely metastasize; even rarer are cases in which both the primary and the secondary tumors have benign histological(More)
BACKGROUND Meningiomas of the tuberculum sellae are lesions with well-defined characteristics in terms of both site of origin and clinical evolution which require differential diagnosis with lesions of the supra- and para-sellar region. The aim of this study is to point out the importance of the size of the lesion and early identification of symptoms for(More)
Electrocardiographic (ECG) alterations in the course of sub-arachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) have frequently been reported. The most frequent anomalies reported were lengthening of the QT interval, very negative or positive deep T waves, elevation or depression of the ST segment and the presence of U waves. We report 70 cases of SAH secondary to rupture of(More)
Hemangioblastomas of the filum terminale are particularly rare tumors. The authors present the case of a 62-year-old woman with a 6 month history of low-back-pain, who underwent surgery for the removal of an hemangioblastoma affecting the cauda at L2-L3 level. This highly vascularized tumour is tightly adherent to the filum terminale and hence is a very(More)
