OBJECTIVES Intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) is a common practice in spinal surgery, mostly during pedicle screw placement. However, there is not enough information about the factors that can interfere with IONM data. One of these factors may be existing damage of the nerve root whose function must be preserved. The main purpose of the present study is(More)
AIMS To review the literature on cerebral neuroblastomas (CN), including their anatomopathological filiation, clinical characteristics together with those they display in imaging studies, and the different therapeutic options with their prognosis. METHOD Cerebral neuroblastomas belong to the group of primitive neuroectodermal tumours (PNET), also known as(More)
We report a case of a 75 year old man presenting with paraparesis, urinary incontinence and saddle anesthesia evolving after several months and severe lumbalgia and bad general status which developed fewdays before admission. CT-scan showed spondilosis with lytic lesion at L5-S1 level. MR1 was not performed because the patient had a pacemaker. A myelo-CT(More)
Treatment of symptomatic arachnoid cysts is based on two procedures: cyst fenestration versus derivation of CSF. Multiseptated cysts represent a very special group. We present the case of a 75 year old woman with a symptomatic multiseptated arachnoid cyst, developing subacute bleeding in one of the cavities. Final diagnosis was obtained after MRI. CSF(More)
The physiopathology of PTS has not been clearly defined. The idiopathic form is considered an immunological disease. This hypothesis is reinforced by the pathological findings of peripheral nerves that show a perineural infiltration of T and B lymphocytes in PTS patients (3). Other precipitant factors, such as infectious processes, surgery, trauma or(More)
INTRODUCTION Space-occupying cerebellar infarcts (SOCI) make up a subgroup within the ischemic pathologies of the brain which are generally well tolerated clinically and usually respond well to medical treatment. Yet, in some cases, due to their volume and localisation, they can be accompanied by a progressive deterioration that requires surgical treatment.(More)
