Liliequist’s membrane (LM) is an important arachnoid structure in the basal cisterns. The relevant anatomic descriptions of this membrane and how many leaves it has are still controversial. The existing anatomical theories do not satisfy the needs of minimally invasive neurosurgery. We aimed to establish the three-dimensional configuration of LM. Fifteen(More)
Numerous evidence demonstrate that microglia mediated inflammatory injury plays a critical role in intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). Therefore, the way to inhibit the inflammatory response is greatly needed. Treg cells have been shown to play a critical role in immunologic self-tolerance as well as anti-tumor immune responses and transplantation. In the(More)
Cocaine dependence involves in the brain's reward circuit as well as nucleus accumbens (NAc), a key region of the mesolimbic dopamine pathway. Many studies have documented altered expression of genes and identified transcription factor networks and epigenetic processes that are fundamental to cocaine addiction. However, all these investigations have focused(More)
Ectopic pituitary adenoma with an empty sella is extremely rare. We report an unusual patient with an ectopic growth hormone-secreting pituitary adenoma in the sphenoid sinus with an empty sella. The association is related to a development disorder of the anterior pituitary tissues. Tumor in the sphenoid sinus was completely removed by endoscopic endonasal(More)
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and most malignant type of primary adult brain cancer. The most common phenotype associated with GBM is cellular invasion; however, the molecular mechanisms governing this process are poorly understood. Targeting protein for Xenopus kinesin-like protein 2 (TPX2) is a nuclear protein with roles in cellular(More)
Spliceosome mutations have been reported in various types of cancer and a number of antitumor drugs have been observed to tightly bind to spliceosome components. Small nuclear ribonucleoprotein‑associated polypeptide N (SNRPN) is a small ribonuclear protein and is a key spliceosome constituent. However, the role of SNRPN in human medulloblastoma remains(More)
BACKGROUND Increasing evidence shows that inflammation plays an important role in the occurrence and progression of acute ischemic stroke. The receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) has been documented to involve in the pathogenic mechanisms of a variety of neurological diseases, including ischemic stroke (IS). However, the impact of RAGE gene(More)
PURPOSE The diagnostic criteria for cavernous sinus invasion (CSI) by pituitary adenomas are still unsatisfactory and controversial. For this reason, the study examined the appearance of the medial wall of the cavernous sinus (MWCS) on proton-density-weighted (PDW) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to determine its value for preoperative assessment of CSI.(More)
The aim of this study is to explore the association between the polymorphisms of galectin-3 gene and clinico-pathological characteristics and prognosis of gliomas. We enrolled 190 histologically diagnosed gliomas and 210 healthy controls in this study. Two genetic variants at galectin-3 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) sites (galectin-3 +191 A>C and(More)
All surgical approaches to the anterior skull base involve the olfactory cistern and have the risk of damaging the olfactory nerve. The purpose of this study was to describe the microanatomical features of the olfactory cistern and discuss its surgical relevance. In this study, the olfactory cisterns of 15 formalin-fixed adult cadaveric heads were dissected(More)
