Metastatic brain tumors (MBT) are the most frequent complication of systemic cancer and often respond poorly to treatment. Median survival is only 16–24 weeks after conventional radiation therapy. Regional intra-arterial (IA) administration of chemotherapy results in increased tumor uptake of drug and may improve response rates and survival. Twenty-seven(More)
Recurrent and progressive non-GBM gliomas are a diverse group of brain tumors that often respond poorly to adjuvant chemotherapy treatment. Regional intra-arterial (IA) administration of chemotherapy may result in increased tumor uptake of drug, with improvement in response rates and time to progression (TTP). Twenty-five patients with recurrent or(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this work was to describe the deep vascular anatomy of the human brain using high resolution MR gradient echo imaging at 8 T. METHOD Gradient echo images were acquired from the human head using a transverse electromagnetic resonator operating in quadrature and tuned to 340 MHz. Typical acquisition parameters were as follows: matrix(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the utility of a modified transcochlear obliteration of the petrous apex in repair of persistent cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks. A review of temporal bone computed tomography (CT) scans and histological preparations for potential air cells leading to such leaks is also presented. STUDY DESIGN(More)
