Partially thrombosed intracranial aneurysms (PTIAs) are different from saccular or nonthrombosed giant or large aneurysms, as they are characterized by multiple intramural thrombotic phenomena related to recurrent vessel wall dissections. We retrospectively reviewed clinical and radiological files of 23 consecutive patients with PTIAs (mean age 49.3 years).(More)
OBJECT There is a strong correlation between the venous drainage pattern of intracranial dural arteriovenous shunts (ICDAVSs) and the affected patients' clinical presentation. The ICDAVSs that have cortical venous reflux (CVR) (retrograde leptomeningeal drainage: Borden Type 2 and 3 lesions) are very aggressive and have a poor natural history. Although the(More)
A 60-year-old man had progressive paraparesis, paresthesia of both lower limbs and sphincter dysfunction. He underwent MRI, which revealed perimedullar abnormal vascular channels associated with a hypersignal in the thoracolumbar cord. Because of the patient's age and symptomatology, a dural arteriovenous shunt was first suspected. MRA confirmed dilatation(More)
OBJECTIVE Chronic intramedullary spinal cord abscesses are very rare. We present here a new case of this pathology, revealed by a progressive spinal cord compression. This case is particular because of the long follow up before surgery (two years). CASE REPORT This 69-year-old patient presented a gradually progressive paraparesis and sensory loss(More)
INTRODUCTION In third cranial nerve palsy, the lack of mydriasis evokes a noncompressive mechanism. Case report. We report a case of a slightly painful, pure extrinsic third-nerve palsy, complete except for the partial ptosis secondary to the compression by an intracavernous carotid aneurysm. Percutaneous endovascular embolization was followed by complete(More)
A 22-year-old man presented headache, asthenia, body weight loss and trigeminal hypoesthesia worsening quickly. Radiological analysis showed an enhanced lesion that originated from the cavernous sinus and extended into the Meckel cave, owing to the fifth cranial nerve's course. The lesion was explored by a temporo-pterional approach and was partially(More)
The spinal canal is an uncommon site for abscess formation resulting from bloodstream disseminated infection. Prognosis is often unfavorable. Rapid treatment is essential for satisfactory neurological recovery. Abscesses within the spinal canal are thus diagnostic and therapeutic emergencies. The neuro-infectious and inflammatory manifestations and(More)
Ventral sulcus spinal cord arteriovenous shunts (SCAVS) are rare vascular lesions that are located outside the spinal cord, are exclusively vascularized by the anterior spinal axis, and drain exclusively through the anterior spinal vein. We report the anatomical, clinical, and neuro-radiological features of SCAVS managed by our team. We conducted a(More)
The purpose of this review is to describe the diagnostic criteria for spinal cord arteriovenous shunts (SCAVSs) when using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), and to discuss the extent to which the different MRI and MRA sequences and technical parameters provide the information that is required to diagnose these(More)
