Brain stem epidermoid cysts are extremely rare lesions. Only nine cases have been reported. Management of the epidermoid cyst is decompression of cyst contents and removal of cyst capsule. But in some cases resection of the cyst may result in a poor outcome because of cyst wall adhesion into the brain stem.
Liliequist’s membrane is mostly described as having a diencephalic leaf, mesencephalic leaf, and diencephalic-mesencephalic leaves in the literature. Also different descriptions of the prepontine membranes were reported. In this study, we visualized the regular structural forms of membranes without disturbing any attachments and defined infrachiasmatic and(More)
Current literature reveals different opinions about the effectiveness of endoscopic third ventriculostomy in the treatment of hydrocephalus in children less than 2 years of age. Performing a retrospective evaluation of our own experience in this age group, we aimed to contribute to the growing data on the controversial issues related to this procedure in(More)
The role of topically applied mitomycin C in preventing postoperative perineural fibrosis was examined by gross anatomical dissection and histological analysis in rats. The sciatic nerve was exposed bilaterally in 24 Wistar adult male rats, and an abrasion injury was produced on the exposed surface of the biceps femoris muscle in all animals. In the(More)
OBJECT In this report, the authors describe their experience with surgical access to the cavernous sinus via a fully transnasal endoscopic approach in 20 cases. Clinical and endocrinological follow-up are discussed. METHODS The authors used an endoscopic transsphenoidal approach in 192 patients with pituitary adenomas between September 1997 and January(More)
Glossopharyngeal neuralgia is a rare disease. In this report; six cases of glossopharyngeal neuralgia have been studied. At first, drug therapy was used in all of the 6 cases. In 2 of the 6 cases which were resistant to medical therapy intracranial section of the 9th nerve as well as the upper two rootlets of the 10th nerve were performed. This resolved the(More)
AIM Fibrous dysplasia is a benign disease in which medullary bone is replaced by fibro-osseous tissue, and causes distortion and overgrowth of the involved bone and represents about 3% of all bone tumors. There is variability in the manifestation of Fibrous Dysplasia lesions with imaging techniques due to their proportional variations of(More)
Hydrocephalus causes damage to periventricular white matter at least in part through chronic ischemia. Emphasizing the periventricular ischemia/hypoxia in hydrocephalus, various authors indicated the secondary biochemical impairment and oxidative damage in experimentally induced and congenital hydrocephalic rat brain. (-)-Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG),(More)
AIM Fenestration of Liliequist membrane (LM) during endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) is extremely important for the success of the procedure. It is noteworthy that LM usually shows a tough and dense stucture in long-standing hydrocephalus cases different from its usual arachnoidal membrane-like structure observed in new-onset hydrocephalus cases. The(More)
Visual field analyses reflect the degree of the compression to the optic nerve that results the structural damage of the nerve. These structural damages can be evaluated by diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), which assesses the structural integrity of white matter tracts. Thus, we evaluated the quantitative assessment of early visual recovery in patients with(More)
