We report a rare case of spinal cord compression caused by a primary extradural hydatid cyst.
Digital Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) scheme allows many users to transmit and receive at the same time using a single channel. CDMA techniques can use synchronous or asynchronous mechanisms. The work in this paper uses the less studied asynchronous mechanism. The transmitter and receiver are synchronized with the help of a delay element. The… (More)
The immediate surgical goals in the treatment of thoraco-lumbar fractures are decompression of compromised neural structures and stabilization of the vertebral column. If more sophisticated instrumentation is available, e.g. A.O.-fixateur interne or instrument set according to Kluger, stable reposition and reformation of compressed vertebral bodies also… (More)
From 96 cases of intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH), 7 (7%) were due to rupture of arteriovenous malformation (AVM). 1 patient with a giant AVM had a primary IVH. Others had intracerebral hematoma (ICH) with rupture into the ventricular system. The severity of IVH (SIVH) correlated with neurological deficits on admission and with outcome of 6 (85%) patients… (More)
The advent of CT has lead to discovery of a wide variety of unusual causes of intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) and hence to the shifts in the proportional incidence of its different etiologies. From 96 patients with IVH, 7 uncommon cases of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) associated with IVH, including 2 due to anticoagulation treatment, 1 because of… (More)
The mortality rate of hypertensive intracerebral hemorrhages (HICH) with ventricular rupture (VR) has been said to range between 60 and 86%. We report on 33 consecutive cases of HICH associated with VR, which were diagnosed by CT and treated by external ventricular drainage (EVD). Sixteen hemorrhages were in the capsulolenticulostriate area, and 6 were in… (More)
