BACKGROUND The incidences of chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) will probably increase with the aging of the population; thus, postoperative care of elderly CSDH patients may play a more important role in surgical management. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of and adverse effects after postoperative early mobilization (EM) for elderly CSDH(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to determine the factors associated with posttraumatic seizure in patients under 2 years old with acute subdural hematoma (ASDH). METHODS Twenty-one patients under 2 years old (15 males and six females) with ASDH, who were admitted to our hospital between January 2002 and September 2008, were studied retrospectively.(More)
Functional reorganization of the motor system following brain damage has been studied extensively in stroke patients, in which not only the cerebrum but also the cerebellum (Cbll) undergoes substantial reorganization. However, the role of Cbll in motor functional reorganization in brain tumor patients remains poorly investigated. Because brain damages in(More)
BACKGROUND In patients with cerebral infarction, identifying the distribution of infarction and the relevant artery is essential for ascertaining the underlying vascular pathophysiological mechanisms and preventing subsequent stroke. However, visualization of the basal perforating arteries (BPAs) has had limited success, and simultaneous viewing of(More)
Acute deprivation of unilateral sensory input rapidly enhances contralateral hand motor function, but the underlying mechanisms remain poorly understood. We herein used functional MRI to evaluate, in 14 healthy individuals, motor cortical activation for right finger motion before, during, and after sensory deprivation of left forearm induced by reversible,(More)
