This study was undertaken to analyze the functional outcome of surgically treated spinal meningiomas and to determine factors for surgical morbidity. Between January 1990 and December 2006 a total of 131 patients underwent surgical resection of a spinal menigioma. There were 114 (87%) female and 17 (13%) male patients. Age ranged from 17 to 88 years (mean(More)
It is widely accepted that action and perception in humans functionally interact on multiple levels. Moreover, areas originally suggested to be predominantly motor-related, as the cerebellum, are also involved in action observation. However, as yet, few studies provided unequivocal evidence that the cerebellum is involved in the action perception coupling(More)
We examined the influence of focal cerebellar lesions on working memory (n-back task), gait, and the interaction between working memory and different gait tasks in a dual-task paradigm. The analysis included 17 young patients with chronic focal lesions after cerebellar tumor resection and 17 age-matched controls. Patients have shown mild to moderate ataxia.(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIM Early diagnosis of ventriculostomy-related infection (VRI) is crucial for the early treatment and course of this disease. In neurosurgical patients the diagnostic criteria are equivocal, mostly because of bloodstained cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The predictive value, sensitivity and specificity of intrathecal interleukin-6 (IL-6(More)
The rupture of an intracranial aneurysm leads to subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). To prevent SAH, unruptured lesions can be treated by either endovascular or microsurgical approach. Due to their complex anatomy, middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysms represent a unique subgroup of intracranial aneurysms. Primary objective was to determine radiological and(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To test the hypothesis that sporadic cerebral cavernous malformations (CCMs) are systematically associated with venous malformations (VMs) using susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI) at 7 Tesla (T) field MRI. METHODS A prospective unselected series of 20 patients with symptomatic or asymptomatic sporadic CCM diagnosed using 1.5 T(More)
INTRODUCTION Specific sensomotoric training is recommended to improve walking dysfunctions, prevent injurious falls or improve the reaction capacities of athletes. The oscillatory Posturomed platform can be used as a simple measuring procedure to characterise balance ability. Standard values for the one legged stance or test-retest reliability are unknown.(More)
Heat-induced radial segmentation (RS) of leucocyte nuclei in vitro (2 h at 41 degrees C) is a heretofore unknown phenomenon, accompanying inflammatory and necrotizing diseases. This phenomenon appears to be identical with the known oxalate-induced radial segmentation and is caused by contractile microfilaments and microtubuli radiating from the centriole.(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine seizure outcome, functional outcome, and the withdrawal of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) after conservative or surgical treatment of patients with new-onset cavernoma-related epilepsy (CRE). METHODS The authors conducted a retrospective comparative observational study of 79 consecutive patients, each with a(More)
