OBJECTIVE The second segment of the vertebral artery is under the risk of injury during anterior and anterolateral cervical spine procedures. To avoid such a risk, one needs to be familiar with the regional anatomy. The aim of this study was to measure the distance between the vertebral artery and the uncinate process, midline, and the medial side of the(More)
INTRODUCTION Clinical management strategy and the best treatment option of free floating thrombus (FFT), detected in patients with acute ischemic cerebrovascular diseases is still uncertain due to the rarity of these conditions. Recent studies emphasize that FFT within cerebral vessels may not be a surgical emergency since complete dissolution without any(More)
Vertebral artery dissection as a cause of stroke is rarely reported in children. The association between vertebral artery dissection and Klippel-Feil syndrome is also very rare. We report on a case of vertebral artery dissection with posterior circulation involvement in a child with Klippel-Feil syndrome after a hard physical-training lesson. She was also(More)
Prothrombin G20210A mutation is an important prothrombotic condition for venous thrombosis. Recently, some studies have also considered it to be a risk factor for arterial ischemic stroke in children. A 10-year-old boy with basilar artery thrombosis who was heterozygous for prothrombin G20210A mutation is described. In concordance with the previous(More)
PURPOSE Virtual endoscopy (VE) is a new diagnostic tool that generates 3-dimensional (3D) views of a lumen by exploiting cross-sectional images. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of VE as a diagnostic tool in the diseases of the larynx and pharynx. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-two patients with a mean age of 57 years were included(More)
A Chiari malformation Type I may remain asymptomatic until the patient has reached adulthood and acute presentation of symptoms occurs. In several clinical and experimental studies it has been shown that essential hypertension is associated with vascular compression of the brainstem, particularly of the rostral ventrolateral medulla oblongata. Nevertheless,(More)
The authors report on a case in which a carotid-cavernous fistula and an associated cavernous-carotid dissection developed in a 48-year-old man following a motor vehicle accident. The fistula was treated with coil embolization via a combined transarterial-transvenous approach. The dissected carotid artery segment was treated with a balloon-expandable stent,(More)
A 77-year old man experiencing frequent transient ischemic attacks for five days was admitted to our hospital. Radiological examinations including brain computed tomography, supraaortic computed tomography angiography were performed. Supraaortic computed tomography angiography revealed two thrombi in common carotid artery. Thrombi were located proximally,(More)
