Remote cerebellar hemorrhage (RCH) after spinal surgery is encountered extremely rarely. A 64 year-old female patient developed symptoms of deteriorating consciousness and diplopia arising on the first postoperative day after recurrent spinal surgery. Cranial CT scan showed cerebral edema and evidence of a cerebellar hemorrhage. Urgent suboccipital(More)
We investigated the effect of ebselen relative to nimodipine in an animal model of subarachnoid hemorrhage. Thirty Wistar albino rats were divided into 5 groups: G1, no intervention; G2, sham surgery without subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH); G3, SAH only; G4, SAH plus nimodipine treatment; G5, SAH plus ebselen treatment. For G2 animals, physiological saline(More)
Mumps is one of the common causes of childhood aseptic meningitis and encephalitis. Although central nervous system involvement is a common manifestation, hydrocephalus is a very rare complication of mumps, with just a few cases reported in the literature to date. Here we report on an 8-year-old boy with acute tetraventricular hydrocephalus caused by mumps(More)
The present study aimed to investigate the neuroprotective efficacy of dexmedetomidine in a rat experimental spinal cord injury model. The rats (n=40) were equally divided into four groups: G1, G2, G3, and G4. Rats in the G1 group underwent a laminectomy only. For the rats in the G2, G3, and G4 groups, spinal cord injury was induced by placing an aneurysm(More)
We investigated the effect of two different doses of dexmedetomidine on vasospasm in a rat model of subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH). SAH was induced by injecting 0.3 mL blood into the cisterna magna in all rat groups except the control (Group C). At 1 hour and 24 hours after SAH, 5 microg/kg dexmedetomidine was given to group D5, and 10 microg/kg(More)
Spinal cord injury (SCI) results in rapid and significant oxidative stress. This study was aimed to investigate the possible beneficial effects of Ebselen in comparison with Methylprednisolone in experimental SCI. Thirty six Wistar albino rats (200-250 g) were divided in to six groups; A (control), B (only laminectomy), C (Trauma; laminectomy + spinal(More)
STUDY DESIGN Case description. OBJECTIVES To present a case of a missed diagnosis of penetrating spine injury by wood and review of the literature. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Penetrating spinal injuries by wood are rare injuries. Less than 10 cases with penetrating spine injuries by a wooden fragment had been reported earlier. METHODS A 23-year-old(More)
A 41-year-old man presented with headache, right-sided ophthalmic pain and visual deficit. His neurological examination was normal except for bitemporal hemianopsia and right lower quadranopsia. MRI demonstrated a mass arising from the pituitary gland. Hormonal analysis revealed an elevated prolactin level of 4700 ng/mL (normal 4.04-15.2 ng/mL). MRI(More)
We examined the effects of the phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE-5) inhibitor vardenafil on cerebral vasospasm in an experimental rat subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) model. Thirty-two albino Wistar rats were divided into five groups: G1, no experimental intervention; G2, administered subarachnoid physiological saline after sham surgery; G3, subjected to SAH; G4,(More)
Intradural extramedullary (IDEM) tuberculomas account for only 1% of all spinal tuberculomas. Concurrent IDEM tuberculoma and syringomyelia arising as a complication of tuberculous meningitis (TM) is extremely rare and only two cases have been reported to date. There is yet no report in the literature describing syringomyelia presenting as a delayed(More)
