The literature on the formation of cerebral veins is reviewed to obtain a better understanding of some cerebrovascular anomalies. Clinical observations such as the entry of the superior ophthalmic vein into the cavernous sinus through the inferior rather than the superior orbital fissure, the relative infrequency of middle cerebral vein backflow in the(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Endovascular treatments for aneurysms are being used more frequently in patients in the absence of a large body of information on their histopathological effects. This study determined the efficacy and histopathological effects of treatment of experimental aneurysms with Guglielmi detachable coils (GDC) or cellulose acetate polymer(More)
Three cases of cerebral venous malformation (CVM) are presented to demonstrate the triad that characterizes CVM: abnormal surface venous drainage, a "star-cluster" system of deep collecting veins, and a deep draining vein. Four other cases are introduced that illustrate this triad and show an additional feature, namely arterial fistulization; these cases(More)
Let L denote a first-order logic in a language that contains infinitely many constant symbols and also containing intuitionistic logic IQC. By ¬¬ L, we mean the associated logic axiomatized by the double negation of the universal closure of the axioms of L plus IQC. We shall show that if L is strongly complete for a class of Kripke models K, then ¬¬ L is(More)
Gene expression in the rodent brain is dependent on exercise. However, our findings regarding this fact are inadequate. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of exercise intensity on changes in factors involved in neuronal differentiation and plasticity in the hippocampus of adult male rats. Thus, the effects of 2 weeks treadmill running at of(More)
Paragangliomas are usually benign tumors which may be locally invasive. Only 10% of these tumors are malignant. When metastases occur the most common sites are lung, liver and bone. When bony metastases occur the spine is a common site. In the present case cervical spine metastases with resultant bony encroachment and epidural extension of tumor with cord(More)
The image quality of radiographs developed by a new ultrarapid processor was evaluated to determine if faster processing causes degradation in the image. The processor used was the Konica Super-Rapid SRX-501 model. Two films designed for this processor (Konica MGH-SR and MGL-SR) were processed in 45 sec and were compared with standard rapid processing in 90(More)
Spontaneous intracerebral hematoma associated with carotid-cavernous fistula is rare. Three new cases are presented. In each, the hemorrhage originated in the vicinity of localized intracranial venous engorgement, as demonstrated by cerebral angiography. Rupture of one or several of the distended venous channels from increased back-flow is postulated as the(More)
