Endoscopic treatment of pituitary abscess: two case reports and literature review
Early management by endoscopic transphenoidal surgery for pituitary abscess is recommended: this technique is safe, with minimal blood loss, short operating time, low morbidity, and brief hospital stay. Expand
Cystic dilation of the ventriculus terminalis in adults.
The data suggest that the site, age, and histological characteristics of the lesion allow VT dilation as a nosological entity distinct from other cystic dilations of the conus medullaris to be defined. Expand
Intramedullary solitary fibrous tumor of dorsal spinal cord
The occurrence of SFT within the spinal cord parenchyma and its histological characteristics demonstrate that SFTs are not restricted to serosal surfaces. Expand
Flow Diversion for Intracranial Aneurysms: A Review
Preliminary clinical series document effective treatment of wide-neck and/or large and giant aneurysms with acceptable complication rates, however, several questions remain unanswered related to the incidence and mechanisms of aneurYSm rupture after treatment with flow diverters, fate of small perforating vessels, and long-term patency rates. Expand
Coiling for Paraclinoid Aneurysms: Time to Make Way for Flow Diverters?
Modern endovascular coil treatment of unruptured paraclinoid aneurysms appears safe, with satisfactory, although not ideal, rates of complete occlusion. Expand
Central neurocytoma: two case reports and review of the literature
This paper reviews the literature on central neurocytomas observed in the last few years and discusses their clinical, histopathological, immunohistochemical and genetic characteristics. Expand
Correlative analysis of gene expression profile and prognosis in patients with gliomatosis cerebri
In modern clinical neuro‐oncology, the pathologic diagnoses are very challenging, creating significant clinical confusion and affecting therapeutic decisions and prognosis.
Extended endoscopic transplanum–transtuberculum approach for pituitary adenomas
Endoscopic, extended, transplanum–transtuberculum approach (ETTA) in selected pituitary adenomas may offer an alternative to the transcranial route, but has a higher morbidity than that seen in the standard transsphenoidal approach. Expand
Seizures and Anticonvulsants after Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage
When prophylaxis is used, 3-day treatment seems to provide similar seizure prevention with better outcome compared with longer-term treatment, and non-convulsive seizures should be considered in patients with poor neurological status or deterioration. Expand
miR-155 is up-regulated in primary and secondary glioblastoma and promotes tumour growth by inhibiting GABA receptors.
It is shown that a decrease in miR-155 expression to normal levels restores the expression of GABRA1, making glioblastoma cells sensitive to signals that inhibit cell proliferation mediated by GABra1, and the expression patterns of different miRNAs characterise primary and secondary gliOBlastomas.
