Gamma radiation is known to cause serious damage in the brain, and many agents have been used for neuroprotection. In this study, lipid peroxidation levels and histopathological changes in brain tissues of whole-body irradiated rats with likely radiation injury were compared to those with melatonin and vitamin E protection. Forty rats in four equal groups(More)
We aim to evaluate the mechanisms responsible for complications during trigeminal rhizotomy via foramen ovale puncture. Ten dry skulls and 10 skull-base specimens were investigated in the present study. In cadaveric skull-base specimens, the anatomical relationships between the foramen ovale, mandibular nerve and Gasserian ganglion and the surrounding(More)
A 31-year-old male was presented with a very rare case of ipsilateral palsies of the nerves IX through XII (Collet-Sicard syndrome) after a closed head injury. An occipital condyle fracture that was associated with epidural hematoma was diagnosed by computed tomography. The patient was conservatively managed, and following the treatment, partial(More)
Ossified chronic subdural hematoma is a very rarely seen entity. We present here a 22-year-old male who had presented with severe headache consequent to brain compression caused by bifronto-parieto-temporal ossified subdural hematoma. We evaluated our method and surgical intervention in the light of the literature. The question whether the ossified membrane(More)
In this study, we aimed to investigate the biochemical and histopathological protective effects of octreotide and melatonin in an experimental model of spinal cord injury. Fifty- six male albino Wistar rats were divided into four groups. Rats in the G1 group (n=7; control group) did not undergo any treatment except for anesthesia prior to being killed. Rats(More)
Delayed traumatic intracranial hemorrhage (DTICH) is seen mostly in trauma to the occipitoparietal region by countercoup mechanism. It is most encountered within the first posttraumatic 10 days, particularly in the first 3. Herein, two cases of delayed traumatic intracerebral hemorrhage were discussed, first one presented with headache and vomiting who had(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Infection of the cerebrospinal fluid is a life-threatening condition which is usually treated with systemic antibiotics and continued ventricular drainage in children. The aim of this study was to analyze the antimicrobial activities of two antimicrobial-agent-impregnated ventricular catheters and to compare their efficacies on the(More)
A 39-year-old woman was admitted with complaints of headache and nasal discharge on the left for 3 months which was later on proved to be cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Neurological examination found no abnormalities except bilateral papilledema. Neuroimaging demonstrated enlargement of the lamina cribrosa foramina through which the olfactory nerves pass, as(More)
Vascular involvement is common in Behçet's Disease (BD). The venous system is often affected, while arterial system involvement is a rare occurrence. Intracranial aneurysm formation associated with BD is extremely rare. A 38- year-old male patient with BD under the follow-up of the Dermatology department presented with acute headache. The cranial computed(More)
