CONTEXT It is unclear whether endoscopic transsphenoidal surgery (ETSS) or microsurgical transsphenoidal surgery (MTS) is a superior surgical approach for pituitary adenomas. OBJECTIVE The… Expand
Gamma Knife radiosurgery for the management of nonfunctioning pituitary adenomas: a multicenter study.
OBJECT Pituitary adenomas are fairly common intracranial neoplasms, and nonfunctioning ones constitute a large subgroup of these adenomas. Complete resection is often difficult and may pose undue… Expand
Complications following cranioplasty: incidence and predictors in 348 cases.

Little is known about vascular smooth muscle cell (SMC) phenotypic modulation in the cerebral circulation or pathogenesis of intracranial aneurysms. Tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) has been… Expand
Critical role of TNF-α in cerebral aneurysm formation and progression to rupture
BackgroundAlterations in TNF-α expression have been associated with cerebral aneurysms, but a direct role in formation, progression, and rupture has not been established.MethodsCerebral aneurysms… Expand
Radiosurgery for patients with unruptured intracranial arteriovenous malformations.
OBJECT The appropriate management of unruptured intracranial arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) remains controversial. In the present study, the authors evaluate the radiographic and clinical… Expand

The denitrifying betaproteobacterium Sterolibacterium denitrificans serves as model organism for studying the oxygen-independent degradation of cholesterol. Here, we demonstrate its capability of… Expand
A practical grading scale for predicting outcome after radiosurgery for arteriovenous malformations: analysis of 1012 treated patients.
OBJECT The authors performed a study to review outcomes following Gamma Knife radiosurgery for cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and to create a practical scale to predict long-term… Expand
Neurologic assessment of somatosensory dysfunction following an experimental rodent model of cerebral ischemia
The modified adhesive removal (sticky-tape) test is an assessment of somatosensory dysfunction following cerebral ischemia in rats. This test is less time consuming than the original protocol by… Expand
Stent-Assisted Coiling of Intracranial Aneurysms: Predictors of Complications, Recanalization, and Outcome in 508 Cases
Background and Purpose— Self-expanding stents are increasingly used for treatment of complex intracranial aneurysms. We assess the safety and the efficacy of intracranial stenting and determine… Expand
