BACKGROUND The microanatomy features of cerebral arteries may be variable and may be different in different ethnic groups. AIM To study the anterior cerebral artery (ACA) anatomy in North-West Indian cadavers. MATERIALS AND METHODS Microanatomy features of the ACA were studied in 15 formalin fixed human cadaveric brains under microscope. The outer(More)
OBJECT Clinicoradiological differences and outcome following surgery in pediatric patients (< or = 16 years of age) with congenital irreducible atlantoaxial dislocation (IAAD) and reducible atlantoaxial dislocation (RAAD) were analyzed. METHODS Ninety-six patients (57 with IAAD and 39 with RAAD) were categorized as follows: Grade I, no deficits except(More)
BACKGROUND Intracranial meningeal hemangiopericytoma (HPC) represents a rare and aggressive intracranial neoplasm located along the dural sinuses. It constitutes less than 1 % of all intracranial tumors and approximately 2-4 % of all meningeal tumors. The authors present our institute's experience in combined modality management of 15 successive patients of(More)
Calcified chronic subdural collection (armoured brain) is a known long-standing complication of shunt overdrainage. We report a young male who became symptomatic eleven years after a shunt surgery. Radiology showed bilateral calcified subdural collections. Drainage of these collections did not help, but shunt revision did. Patients with armoured brain(More)
Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a significant health care problem. One of the major determinants of outcome following surgery of intracranial aneurysms is development of intracranial infarcts. All patients underwent clipping for aneurysms in one year in the department of neurosurgery, PGIMER, Chandigarh were studied. Data regarding age, sex, date of ictus,(More)
OBJECT Parafalcine subdural empyema and those along the superior and inferior surface of the tentorium are rare entities. We present a series of 10 patients where we have attempted to describe the pathophysiology, clinical features, and management of subdural empyema. METHODS The study group included 10 cases of falcotentorial subdural empyemas managed(More)
OBJECTIVE Ewing's sarcomas are the second most common bone tumors in children and primary involvement of the cranium is uncommon. We analyzed retrospectively the data of ten patients with this rare subset of disease, who had been treated at our institute since 2005. Our aim was to assess the outcomes, recurrence rates and the selection of appropriate(More)
Multicentric Gliomas, both supratentorial and infratentorial, with varying histopathological picture is extremely rare. We report a unique occurrence of such a combination in a 50-year-old man who presented with features of elevated intracranial pressure, ataxia and vertigo. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a diffuse non-enhancing lesion in the temporal(More)
OBJECTIVE The remote (more than 6 mo after injury) and isolated (not associated with any other cervical spinal fractures) Type II fractures of the odontoid (RI IIO) are unique in being inherently unstable and prone to malunion or nonunion, leading to cervical compressive myelopathy. The present study discusses their surgical management. METHODS Nineteen(More)
