Central neurocytomas are typically benign tumors that have high local control rates after gross total resection. Radiotherapy for residual or recurrent central neurocytomas is controversial. We report a 30-year-old male with a central neurocytoma in the lateral ventricle. The tumor was subtotally resected through a transcallosal approach, and subsequently(More)
Inflammatory cytokines are reportedly involved in the pathogenesis of chronic subdural hematomas (CSH), and the angiogenesis of hematomas has particularly been in focus. Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) is an essential enzyme for the synthesis of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2). The COX-2-PGE2 pathway has been shown to influence angiogenic factors such as vascular(More)
Patients with diffuse axonal injury (DAI) may initially present with prominent physical impairments, but their cognitive dysfunctions are more persistent and are attributable to later unemployment. In this study, we analyzed how the findings of early and delayed neuropsychological assessments correlated with employment outcome of patients with DAI. A total(More)
