We propose a dynamic model of cerebrospinal fluid and intracranial pressure regulation. In this model, we investigate the coupling of biological parameters with a 3-D model, to improve the behavior of the brain in surgical simulators. The model was assessed by comparing the simulated ventricular enlargement with a patient case study of communicating(More)
Two cases of Brown-Sequard syndrome following a stab wound of the cervical spinal cord are reported. Spinal cord hemisection was confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging and surgical exploration. Both patients presented leakage of the cerebrospinal fluid and underwent surgical repair. In the first case, the pia-mater was sutured to close the wound and(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to assess the safety and efficacy of intraventricular fibrinolysis (IVF) for aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) with severe intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH). In this randomized controlled trial, between 2005 and 2009, patients with aSAH and severe IVH were randomly assigned into two groups: one treated with(More)
During the past years, the development of new technologies and techniques has been applied to brain tumor surgery, leading to decreased surgical morbidity and increased efficiency. These techniques can be used to reduce the invasiveness of the surgical approach (endoscopy, neuronavigation, robotics), to improve guidance (stereotaxy, neuronavigation), to(More)
Neuroepithelial dysembryoplastic tumor (DNT) is usually considered as a supratentorial benign neoplasm. DNT of the posterior fossa is a very rare entity and only four previous cases were reported in the literature. We describe a case of a 26-Year-old woman presenting recurrent episodes of vertigo. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed four cystic lesions(More)
The purpose of this study was to report an independent real-life experience about the use of recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein 2 in lumbar interbody fusion with a special focus on complications. This is a retrospective single-center cohort study between 2007 and 2013 including 277 patients treated for anterior or posterior lumbar fusion with(More)
INTRODUCTION Bone echinococcosis or bone hydatidosis is mainly caused by the larva of a dog taenia, Echinococcus granulosus. We described a rare imported case in metropolitan France of spinal cord compression from a primary vertebral hydatidosis. CASE A 25-year-old woman, native of a rural area in the South of Romania, was admitted for backache and slight(More)
