To the accepted classification of three types of normal pressure, nontraumatic cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) fistulas, we would add "acquired." This type of CSF fistula tends to occur from the middle cranial fossa because of the enlargement of "pitholes" that are normally present in its anterior medial aspect. The enlargement of these bony defects is due to(More)
A neurosurgical procedure has been developed for vascular isolation of the hypothalamus-thalamus region of the rhesus monkey brain. Utilizing this preparation, the left and right halves of the hypothalamus were perfused simultaneously, but separately, with a dextran-blood solution. Radiolabeled steroids were directly perfused in the dextran-blood into(More)
The clinical, operative and pathological characteristics of a dissecting aneurysm of the vertebral artery are presented. A review of the literature suggests that this type of intracranial aneurysm is being recognized with increasing frequency and can be characterized by its symptomatology and radiological patterns. A set of guidelines for the management of(More)
Five cases of spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) fistulas originating from the middle fossa are described, including one patient with an "empty" sella. It is suggested that acquired meningocele and meningoencephalocele progress to become CSF fistulas. The normal anatomical and physiological factors which give rise to acquired bone/dural/arachnoid(More)
The number of clinically relevant gene-based guidelines and recommendations pertaining to drug prescribing continues to grow. Incorporating gene-drug interaction information into the drug-prescribing process can help optimize pharmacotherapy outcomes and improve patient safety. However, pharmacogenomic implementation barriers exist such as integration of(More)
