Thirty symptomatic indirect carotid cavernous fistulas were treated between 1978 and 1986 with a variety of treatment modalities. Combined carotid artery and jugular vein compression resulted in a complete cure in seven of 23 patients (30%) and improvement in one additional patient. There were no complications from this treatment, which is performed by the(More)
Angiographic and clinical data from 155 patients with carotid cavernous fistulae were retrospectively reviewed to determine angiographic features associated with increased risk of morbidity and mortality. These features included presence of a pseudoaneurysm, large varix of the cavernous sinus, venous drainage to cortical veins, and thrombosis of venous(More)
Evidence on magnetic resonance (MR) images of disk degeneration and herniation, as well as of cord and root impingement, may be regarded either as normal, age-related changes or as causative of symptoms. Individuals referred for MR examinations of the larynx without symptoms referable to the cervical spine were studied retrospectively (35 patients) or(More)
Both retrospective and blinded analyses of thin-section, high-resolution magnetic resonance (MR) images of the knee joint, produced using a solenoid surface coil, indicate that MR imaging is an effective technique for evaluating meniscal injuries. Images of 49 patients were evaluated, and the results were correlated with those of subsequent arthroscopy. A(More)
Intraoperative digital subtraction angiography using commercially available equipment was employed to confirm the precision of the surgical result in 105 procedures for intracranial aneurysms or arteriovenous malformations (AVM's). Transfemoral selective arterial catheterization was performed in most of these cases. A radiolucent operating table was used in(More)
Eight magnetic resonance (MR) examinations were performed in seven patients with Achilles tendon injuries and correlated with physical examination and surgical and clinical follow-up. The MR examinations depicted the Achilles tendon in excellent detail and Achilles tendon abnormalities with greater accuracy than physical examination. Of five tendons shown(More)
Highly detailed pathologic morphology of 25 knees with suspected structural abnormalities was depicted in thin-section, high-resolution magnetic resonance images (MRI) produced with the aid of a specially designed solenoid surface coil. Scans were obtained on a 0.3-T permanent magnet system with 4-mm-thick slices and 0.75-mm pixel size. The images were(More)
We report our experience with intraoperative digital subtraction neuroangiography to demonstrate its application as a diagnostic and therapeutic technique. Intraoperative neuroangiography was performed on 53 occasions in 43 patients using a portable imaging system. Thirty-two procedures were performed for diagnostic purposes after resection of arteriovenous(More)
Four cases of pneumosinus dilatans of the sphenoid sinus are reported, supplementing the eight cases previously reported in the literature. This rare entity is characterized by expansion of a paranasal sinus that contains only air. In one patient, severe visual loss due to compression of the optic canal by the adjacent enlarged sinus was seen. Galactorrhea(More)
