BACKGROUND Perimesencephalic nonaneurysmal hemorrhage is a benign form of subarachnoid hemorrhage with a low risk of rebleeding. The authors conducted a retrospective study to investigate the prognosis, possible prognostic factors, and long-term natural history in perimesencephalic nonaneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (PNSH). METHODS This report contains(More)
BACKGROUND This prospective study aimed to determine the spectrum and the main risk factors of surgical site infection (SSI) after neurosurgical procedures in our clinic. METHODS Consecutive patients undergoing neurosurgery between November 1, 2001, and November 1, 2002, were recruited for the study. All patients were followed for a minimum of 2 weeks(More)
The present study was performed to investigate the effect of trapidil on ischemic damage of cells after spinal cord injury. The injury was produced by extradural clip compression of the exposed spinal cord in rats according to Rivlin and Tator. The ten rats in group 1 were used to determine normal findings without any surgery or medication. On the 15 rats(More)
Behçet's disease, a rare condition in central Europe but more common in Turkey where it was originally described, is characterized clinically by the presence of a diagnostic triad of oral and genital aphthous ulcers, meningitis, and relapsing iridocyclitis. Vascularlesions including arterial and venous occlusions, arterial aneurysms and varices are one of(More)
OBJECT The authors examined the relationships of brain-tumor interfaces, specific magnetic resonance (MR) imaging features, and angiographic findings in meningiomas to predict tumor cleavage and difficulty of resection. METHODS Magnetic resonance imaging studies, angiographic data, operative reports, clinical data, and histopathological findings were(More)
Between 1972 and 1996, 450 consecutive patients with intracranial meningiomas were operated on at Cukurova University School of Medicine. By size, intracranial meningiomas were classified as huge (>6 cm minimum diameter when extrapolated to anatomic size) or not huge (<6 cm). The present study involves 93 patients who underwent 109 craniotomies for the(More)

This report is of a patient with an isolated seiiar tuberculoma with supraseiiar extension in association with thickening of the pituitary stalk who presented with signs and symptoms of hypopituitarism. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a seiiar mass with supraseiiar extension associated with thickening of the pituitary stalk. Endocrinological parameters(More)
A 43-year-old woman complaining of severe pain of the right side of the face was admitted to the Department of Neurosurgery. It had been present for three months and diagnosed as trigeminal neuralgia. The CT scan without contrast material had been considered normal at that time. Three months later, after a favourable response to carbamazepine, she suddenly(More)
 Background: Choroid plexus papillomas are rare, accounting for less than 1% of all intracranial tumours in adults. However, they are relatively more common in childhood and constitute 1.5 to 4% of intracranial tumours. They are most often located in the lateral ventricle, followed by the fourth and third ventricles and, rarely, in the cerebellopontine(More)
We produced retrobulbar hematoma in both orbits of 10 pigs in order to assess the effects of blood elements and pressure created by the hematoma on the optic nerves. Ten other pigs were used as a control group. Following decompression in the right orbits, ocular movements, fundi, and intraocular pressure were evaluated for 6 weeks. At the end of the 6th(More)
