Poor-grade ruptured anterior circulation cerebral aneurysms are frequently associated with severe vasospasm and high morbidity rates despite recent remarkable advances in endovascular coiling.Here, we explored the feasibility of keyhole approach combined with external ventricular drainage for ruptured, poor-grade, anterior circulation cerebral aneurysms. We(More)
AIM Traditional craniotomies for treatment of the aneurysms at the A3 segment of anterior cerebral artery (A3As), such as frontal approach and interhemispheric approach, require pre-hairline incision and relatively long incision, extensive bone flap, inevitable supraorbital nerve injury, opening frontal sinus, and increased operative time. Here we reported(More)
RATIONALE There were a few case reports concerning epidermoid tumor coexisted with multiple cerebral aneurysms. Here, we present one case of coexistence of intracranial epidermoid tumor and multiple cerebral aneurysms and performed a literature review. PATIENT CONCERNS A 42 years old male patient was admitted to our institution with complaints of headache(More)
OBJECTIVE Using intraoperative electrocorticography (ECoG) to identify epileptogenic areas and improve postoperative seizure control in patients with low-grade gliomas (LGGs) remains inconclusive. In this study the authors retrospectively report on a surgery strategy that is based on intraoperative ECoG monitoring. METHODS A total of 108 patients with LGGs(More)
OBJECTIVE Cerebral ischeamia is a major contributor to poor outcome after ruptured anterior communicating artery aneurysms (AcoAs), and is not well classified. Here we develop a classification and identify risk factors of cerebral ischemia after ruptured ACoAs. MATHERIAL AND METHODS A total of 360 patients with ruptured ACoAs undergoing microsurgical(More)
Brain retraction is required during many intracranial procedures to provide more working space. However, it is difficult to avoid brain retraction injury. Here, we report on retractorless surgery for anterior circulation aneurysms via a pterional keyhole approach. All patients undergoing a minimally invasive pterional keyhole approach within 3 days after(More)
Dysmorphic neurons and balloon cells constitute the neuropathological hallmarks of type II focal cortical dysplasias (FCDs) with refractory epilepsy. The genesis of these cells may be critical to the histological findings in type II FCD. Recent work has shown enhanced activation of the mTOR cascade in both balloon cells and dysmorphic neurons, suggesting a(More)
