BACKGROUND Characterization of WM alteration using MR imaging is important in the pre- and intraoperative assessment of brain tumors. This study characterizes the extent and severity of WM tract alterations near brain tumors using DTI in an effort to determine preoperative viability or resectability of the adjacent WM tracts. Fractional anisotropy is an(More)
Bilateral mycotic aneurysms of the intracavernous segment of the internal carotid artery (ICA) are exceedingly rare. The authors present the case of a 46-year-old man with bilateral mycotic intracavernous carotid aneurysms, which were treated with a stent-assisted vessel wall remodeling technique with preservation of the parent arteries.

To appraise the validity, intra-operative elevation of hand temperature ensuring a successful T2-sympathectomy, we conducted a randomized, self-compared, case-control study on 40 consecutive patients with palmar hyperhidrosis. All patients had a postoperative follow-up of at least 18 months without recurrence. During operation, dynamic temperature changes(More)
Metrizamide, a non-ionic water soluble contrast medium, is used in myelography for detecting spinal cord lesions. Because it is an injection in the subarachnoid space, the effects on the central nervous system following metrizamide myelography should be studied. Electroencephalography can offer a non-invasive and objective method for evaluating the(More)
Objective of this study was to investigate the incidence, time, location, prevention, treatment and risk factors of recurrent hemorrhage in the earlier period of cerebral hemorrhage after operation. Three hundred and twenty two patients with operations in the earlier period of cerebral hemorrhage were analyzed retrospectively. The clinical data of(More)
