Thresholds of focal cerebral ischemia in awake monkeys.
Some cases of acute hemiplegia, with blood flow in the paralysis range, might be improved by surgical revascularization, and studies of local CBF might help identify suitable cases for emergency revascularized.

Hydrocephalus is said to be noncommunicating or obstructive if the blockade of circulation is in the ventricular system and communicating or nonobstructive if there is a normal patency of the pathways from the Ventricular system to the lumbar subarachnoid space.
Meningioma: analysis of recurrence and progression following neurosurgical resection.
The rates of survival, tumor recurrence, and tumor progression were analyzed in 225 patients with meningioma who underwent surgery as the only treatment modality between 1962 and 1980, and there was no difference in the recurrence/progression rates according to the patients' age or sex, or the duration of symptoms.
LONG‐TERM RECURRENCE RATES OF ATYPICAL MENINGIOMAS AFTER GROSS TOTAL RESECTION WITH OR WITHOUT POSTOPERATIVE ADJUVANT RADIATION
After GTR without postoperative radiation, AMs have a high recurrence rate, and most recurrences occurred within 5 years after resection, suggesting lower recurrence rates in patients undergoing immediate postoperative Radiation should be investigated in larger, prospective series.
Management of Atypical and Malignant Meningiomas: Role of High-dose, 3D-conformal Radiation Therapy
Conformal, high dose RT resulted in significant improvement of local control for atypical and malignant meningiomas and resulted in improved rates of survival for patients with malignantMeningioma.
Cerebral vasospasm with ruptured saccular aneurysm--the clinical manifestations.
It was concluded that in this study vasospasm accounted for all DID's and that in the absence of vasospasms DID did not occur.

Spontaneous dissection of the cervical internal carotid artery is more common than the literature indicates and the clinical picture varied from simply headache and a bruit to hemiplegia and aphasia.
Endolymphatic sac tumors: Histopathologic confirmation, clinical characterization, and implication in von hippel‐lindau disease
The search resulted in the identification of a de‐novo papillary epithelial lesion arising within the confines of the endolymphatic sac in a patient with von Hippel‐Lindau (VHL) disease who harbored a large, destructive ELST in the opposite temporal bone.
The relation of cerebral vasospasm to the extent and location of subarachnoid blood visualized by CT scan: a prospective study.
The data indicate that the extent and location of blood in the subarachnoid space determine the severity of vasospasm and that patients in jeopardy of developing symptomatic cerebral vasospasms can now be identified and early preventive measures may now be assessed more accurately.
