The authors have studied the microvascularization of the intracranial dura mater by microradiographic and histologic examination of 73 injected anatomic specimens. There exists a very abundant superficial arterial plexus which also serves to supply the inner table of the cranial vault. This plexus is continuous, even at the walls of the venous sinuses and(More)
The authors report the case of a 39-year-old man with a common origin of three arteries-the celiac, superior mesenteric, and inferior mesenteric arteries-that has not been described previously in the literature, to their knowledge. This variant, which they call the celiac-bimesenteric trunk, is documented with a selective angiogram, and an embryologic(More)
Two uncommon anatomical variations of the left renal vein were found on dissected specimens: a circumaortic venous ring and a retro-aortic bifid left renal vein. The first anomaly results from a persistence of the embryonic renal venous collar. The second one would be related to a particular pattern of left inferior vena cava. Both abnormalities have to be(More)
We report a caroticocavernous fistula (CCF) treated by an endovascular procedure in a young woman with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type IV, with severe bilateral carotid and vertebral artery dysplasia. The CCF, which appeared after minor trauma, was successfully occluded by a detachable balloon introduced into the venous side by an arterial approach. Six(More)
Most intra-cranial arachnoid cysts are quiescent and remain asymptomatic throughout life. Within the natural course of arachnoid cyst evolution, spontaneous resolution has been known to occur rarely, but its frequency is probably underestimated due to lack of systematic detection and long-term observation. We illustrate the spontaneous regression of(More)
We report an unusual case of a spinal subdural haematoma associated with a ruptured spinal aneurysm. The delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of this rare entity can have disastrous consequences. We discuss various possible aetiologies and its association with spinal aneurysms.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) has gained popularity for the treatment of degenerative disease of the lumbar spine. In this report, we present our experience with the ALIF procedure for treatment of failed back surgery syndrome following lumbar discectomy in a noncontrolled retrospective cohort. METHODS From 1st January to(More)
We report a case of vertebral malformation associated with diplomyelia believed to be a type II split cord malformation. Cervicothoracic level cases are exceptional. This article reports the case of an 11-year-old boy with no neurological symptoms who had not undergone surgery. The diagnosis was made during pregnancy by prenatal screening with ultrasound(More)
The authors relate a clinical and radiological (X Ray and TDM tridimensional) study with an anthropological (dry skulls) study of plagiocephaly. The aim is to find with the aid of a physical examination, some anatomic parameters which permit to differentiate cranial asymmetry with coronal premature synostotic suture from functional deformation with(More)
