High-resolution magnetic resonance image makes it possible to examine the radiological anatomy of the orbital portion of the optic nerve in patients with papilledema. The longitudinal diameters of the orbital portion of the optic nerve and its subarachnoidal space were measured on coronal images just behind the eyeball, in the middle of the latter and the(More)
Craniocerebral injuries are known to involve the visual tract in 2-5% of cases. Fifty-nine patients aged 5 to 68 with visual tract involvement in craniocerebral injury were examined in N. N. Burdenko Institute of Neurosurgery of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences. Unilateral optic nerve involvement was found in 48 patients, involvement of the chiasm(More)
The authors report a rare case of multiple echinococcosis (brain, heart and kidneys). Neuronavigation, intraoperative ultrasound scanning have allowed to plan exact and non-traumatic access to the cysts. Microsurgical technique and intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring provided removal of seven cysts without their rupture from the left(More)
OBJECTIVE Despite the advances in microsurgery, the choice of the most adequate approach to the posterior part of the medial temporal region (MTR) remains a very controversial issue. The supracerebellar transtentorial approach (STA) is considered as the most preferable one, since it provides the optimal balance between retraction, incision, and resection of(More)
Benign intracranial hypertension (BICH) is characterized by elevated spinal fluid pressure in the absence of space-occupying lesion in the skull, dilated cerebral ventricles, significant neurological disorders, and altered spinal fluid composition. Forty-nine patients with a female predominance were examined. Their age ranged from 4 to 52 years (median 39(More)
AIM To establish the possibility of retrograde trans-synaptic neural degeneration following acquired post-geniculate visual pathway damage. MATERIAL AND METHODS Twenty-two patients with homonymous hemianopia caused by acquired post-geniculate visual pathway damage were examined. Peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness and ganglion cell(More)
Six clinical observations of a rare condition, delayed radiation-induced optic neuropathy (RON) are presented. RON developed in patients with brain tumors treated by radiotherapy and radiosurgery; in the majority of patients the condition developed during exposure to therapeutic doses; its incidence was 0.5% of the total number of patients treated by(More)
A Heidelberg retina tomograph II was used to examine 35 (55 eyes) patients with intracranial hypertension caused by brain tumors. Ophthalmoscopy revealed no changes in the optic disk in 6 eyes, mild, moderate, and severe congestive optic disks (COD) in 6, 14, and 29 eyes, respectively. The volume of the neuroretinal rim (V) and the area of the Optic disk(More)
