Stereotactic radiosurgery is an encouraging approach to deliver higher doses of radiation boost for malignant gliomas safely and precisely. The purpose of this study was to investigate the radiation response and histological changes of malignant astrocytic tumors after stereotactic linac radiosurgery (SLRS). We studied an autopsy case of recurrent(More)
A retrospective study of 75 patients treated surgically for ruptured middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysm within 48 hours evaluated clinical grade at admission, secondary development and management of cerebral swelling associated with space-occupying hematoma, cerebral infarction caused by vasospasm, development of hydrocephalus, and clinical outcome.(More)
Serial changes in platelet and white blood cell (WBC) counts and other blood parameters were analyzed in 103 patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). The WBC counts during days 3-5, 6-8, 9-11, and 12-14 after the onset of SAH were significantly higher in patients with than in patients without symptomatic vasospasm. Platelet counts during days(More)
A 33-year-old woman presented with a rare intracranial pial arteriovenous fistula manifesting as monoparesis and hypesthesia of the right lower extremity. Computed tomography demonstrated an approximately 10-mm diameter subcortical hematoma in the left postcentral gyrus. Two months after suffering the ictus, angiography demonstrated a pial arteriovenous(More)
We report a very rare case of hemangioblastomatosis in a patient without von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL). A 50-year-old woman had a history of surgical procedures for total removal of a cerebellar hemangioblastoma (HB). Twenty-one years after the last operation, she developed communicating hydrocephalus; computed tomographic (CT) scans of the brain showed(More)
We investigated morphological and metabolic changes of radiation necrosis (RN) of the brain following bevacizumab (BEV) treatment by using neuroimaging. Nine patients with symptomatic RN, who had already been treated with radiation therapy for malignant brain tumors (6 glioblastomas, 1 anaplastic oligodendroglioma, and 2 metastatic brain tumors), were(More)
A 42-year-old woman had suffered from headaches since April 2009. Computed tomography revealed a tumor with marked calcification in the left frontal lobe adjacent to the left anterior horn of the lateral ventricle. T1-weighted gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging showed a well-enhanced tumor at the lesion. Dynamic methionine positron emission(More)
Secondary tethered cord syndrome following initial repair for spinal dysraphism is an important area of interest. In this study, 32 cases with spinal dysraphism in the lumbosacral region were enrolled, in whom radical repair with autologous material had been carried out in the early stage soon after birth. During the follow-up period of up to 19 years 10(More)
Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) edema and porencephaly are rare postoperative complications of a ventricular shunt that result from obstruction of the distal catheter, especially in children with taut ventricles. We report a 10-year-old male with cerebellar germinoma complicated by obstructive hydrocephalus. Ventriculopuncture was performed and an Ommaya(More)
OBJECT It is well known that the central nervous system (CNS) is an immunologically privileged site. To characterize CD8+ tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) recovered from the CNS, the authors compared these cells with TILs recovered from subcutaneous tissue by using a B7.1 gene-modified tumor implantation model. METHODS The authors established a B7.1(More)
