Distal anterior choroidal artery aneurysms with intraventricular hemorrhage are rare and difficult to treat. We report the case of a 46-year-old woman with a left distal anterior choroidal artery aneurysm presenting as a typical subarachnoid hemorrhage from which she had no focal neurological signs. Because the aneurysm was located within the dominant deep(More)
BACKGROUND Only a few experimental reports are available on the direct comparison of Licox(®) and Raumedic(®)-Neurovent-PTO brain tissue oxygen pressure (P(br)O(2)) monitors. We compared the two systems regarding their measurement properties under experimental in vitro and in vivo conditions. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eight Licox(®) and Raumedic(®)(More)
The herpes simplex virus genome can enter a repressed transcriptional state (latency) in sensory neurons of the host nervous system. Although reduced permissiveness of the neuronal environment is widely accepted as a causal factor, the molecular pathway(s) directing and maintaining the viral genome in the latent state remains undefined. Over the past(More)
The antiinflammatory efficacy of CuPu(Py)2 ([[N,N'-bis(2-pyridylmethylene)-1,4-butanediamine] (N,N',N'',N''')]-Cu2+), a serum stable active center analog of Cu2Zn2superoxide dismutase (SOD), was tested in vitro and in vivo in male Wistar rats suffering from potassium peroxochromate-induced inflammation. Parameters including 99mTc gamma-scintigraphic(More)
A 50-year-old man with sudden onset of nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea was on ultrasonography of the upper abdomen found to have an adrenal tumour, 5.5 cm in diameter. This was excised transperitoneally with its connective-tissue pseudocapsule, there being no enlarged regional lymph nodes or other pathological findings. But the histological diagnosis was(More)
epidemiology incidence Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is considered to be a relatively rare tumour. In Great Britain, the incidence in males is 3.4/100 000, in France it is 2.3/100 000 and in the Netherlands it is 3.2/100 000. In the last 10 years, the incidence of MPM has increased slightly, mainly due to the lag time of 30–50 years after exposure to(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate incidence and characteristics of arterial thromboembolic complications in critically ill children. MATERIALS AND METHODS Hospital records of all consecutive patients with arterial thromboembolic events (ATEs) occurring in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) from January 1997 to August 2001 were reviewed. Data collected included(More)
Patients with symptomatic aneurysms that are not excluded from the cerebral circulation have a poor prognosis. Standard treatment is surgical exploration with direct clipping of the aneurysm. Because of their large size or relationship to the base of the skull, some aneurysms may not be suitable for direct surgical clipping and may require alternative(More)
