Previous studies demonstrated an unfavorable psychological outcome after treatment of unruptured intracranial aneurysms despite an objectively favorable clinical and radiological outcome. The current study was therefore designed to analyze the psychiatric vulnerability of this specific patient collective. Patients treated for a WHO grade I meningioma and(More)
Previous studies found higher incidence of persistent primitive arteries in Asian moyamoya (MM) patients than in the general population, which was thought to be a characteristic trait of the MM entity in general. We analyzed incidence of persistent primitive arteries and demographics of patients with European MM treated in one single center. First, we(More)
Three patients who had orbital decompression for compressive optic neuropathy secondary to Graves' ophthalmopathy are presented. Despite initial improvement in their visual acuity, all of the patients experienced subsequent relapse due to progressive enlargement of the extraocular muscles, resulting in recurrent compressive optic neuropathy. Management(More)
OBJECTIVES The current study was designed to analyze the influence of a positive pre-interventional psychiatric history on the quality of life (QOL) after successful treatment of benign intracranial extra-cerebral lesions. METHODS Patients treated due to meningioma WHO I or unruptured intracranial aneurysms in two German neurosurgical centers between 2007(More)
OBJECTIVES Previous studies demonstrated a conspicuously elevated rate of psychiatric disorders in patients with incidental intracranial aneurysms. This study was designed to analyze the impact of this observation on the post-interventional rates of PTSD, depressions and anxiety disorders in this collective. METHODS Physically unaffected iA patients with(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Cerebral microbleeds (cMBs) have previously been linked with especially high incidence in Asian patients with moyamoya together with high tendency to bleed. This, presumably, is characteristic of patients with moyamoya. Herein, we, therefore, investigate retrospectively the frequency, location, and longitudinal course of cMBs in a(More)
BACKGROUND A significantly increased rate of positive preinterventional psychiatric histories in the unruptured aneurysm collective was demonstrated previously. The current study was designed to analyze the influence of the preinterventional psychiatric status on the outcome after treatment of unruptured intracranial aneurysms. METHODS Patients treated(More)
OBJECTIVES Long-term magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) follow-up studies regarding cryptogenic nonperimesencephalic subarachnoid hemorrhage (nSAH) are scarce. This single-centre study identified all patients with angiographically verified cryptogenic nSAH from 1998 to 2007: The two main objectives were to prospectively assess the incidence of de novo(More)
