A variety of osteoplastic flaps have been devised for transoral or extraoral access to the base of skull and the upper anterior cervical spine. Part I of this two-part review will describe access to the clivus and upper anterior cervical spine. Part II will describe access to the middle cranial fossa, the infratemporal fossa and the pterygoid(More)
We performed a randomised prospective double blind trial to study the effect of the calcium antagonist nimodipine on the outcome of head injured patients. The subjects were not obeying commands at the time of entry to the study, within 24 hours of injury. One hundred and seventy-five patients received nimodipine IV, 2 mg per hour for up to 7 days and 176(More)
Despite recent research suggesting that relationally aggressive behaviors occur frequently and may lead to physically aggressive actions within urban school settings, there has been little prior research to develop and evaluate relational aggression prevention efforts within the urban schools. The current article describes the development and preliminary(More)
Physical aggression directed toward parents by their adolescents is a serious issue both practically and scientifically. In contrast to the extensive literature on other forms of aggression within families (e.g., marital violence, child physical abuse) as well as youth aggression construed broadly, a major gap exists in our knowledge of youth-to-parent(More)
We studied the efficacy of nimodipine in severely head-injured patients in a randomized study. Of 176 patients who received nimodipine, 2 mg/h iv for 2 day, 53% had a favorable outcome (moderate or good recovery). Of 175 control patients, 49% had a favorable outcome. This difference was not statistically significant but does not exclude the possibility that(More)
OBJECT The authors undertook a study to assess the value of posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) in which carbon fiber cages (CFCs) were placed in patients undergoing revision disc surgery for symptoms suggesting neural compression with low-back pain. METHODS The authors followed their first 50 patients for a maximum of 5 years and a minimum of 6(More)
PURPOSE Patients and relatives experiences of behavioural and personality changes following brain tumour were assessed to determine whether these changes are more prominent in the experience of patients with frontal tumours and their relatives as a first step to evaluate the need to develop appropriate support and management of such changes, which have a(More)

Part I of this two-part review describes access to the clivus and upper anterior cervical spine.

BACKGROUND Over the last decade, the approach to the management of brain tumours and the understanding of glioblastoma tumour biology has advanced and a number of therapeutic interventions have evolved, some of which have shown statistically significant effects on overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival in glioblastoma. The aim of this study is(More)
The goals of this study were first, to delineate the co-occurrence of parental severe physical aggression and verbal aggression toward clinic-referred adolescents, and second, to examine the interactive effects of parental severe physical aggression and verbal aggression on adolescent externalizing and internalizing behavior problems.
