Fifty-seven of 176 prospectively studied patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) developed delayed cerebral ischemia. Clinical features included hemispheric focal signs (13), decrease in level of consciousness (14), or both (30), and mutism (15). Forty-seven patients showed hypodense lesions on CT in one (19) or multiple vascular territories(More)
A Finnish family is described with 9 cases of presenile dementia in 3 generations. The mean age at onset was 52 years (range 46--62 years). Progressive dementia, upper motor neuron signs, muscular rigidity, and twitching, irregular tremors were consistent features in the 6 clinically investigated patients and were associated with spongiform change in the(More)
The histocompatibility requirements for successful frozen nerve allografts were studied in 46 dogs. Major canine histocompatibility (DLA) differences appeared to be of vital importance for nerve regeneration and function, as judged by histological and electromyographic performance 7 to 9 months after grafting. Minor histocompatibility differences did not(More)
Histocompatibility seems to play an important role in the regeneration of nerve allografts. Compatible tissue typed nerve allografts behave more like autografts and are, therefore, more readily accepted by the host tissue without producing evident tissue rejection. The influence of histocompatibility difference becomes more marked if the graft is longer(More)
A case of X-linked hydrocephaly is presented. Early second trimester evaluation of the size of the lateral cerebral ventricles resulted in one male fetus continuing further normal development and one male fetus being aborted because of progressive hydrocephaly. The affected fetus was characterized by cerebral ventricular dilation without aqueductal(More)
Cadaver nerve allografts were studied in major histocompatibility complex-identical beagle donor/recipient combinations. Grafts were removed 3 and 6 hours after the death of the donor, preserved at -70 degrees C and transplanted as 7 cm long grafts at a later date. Graft function and histology was evaluated 9 to 11 months after transplantation by(More)
The following malformations were observed in a human embryo of 28 mm crown-rump length obtained at operation for tubal rupture in a case of extrauterine pregnancy: 1. Secondary anophthalmia with dysplasia and in part aplasia of the diencephalon. Rudiments of both eyes and eyestalklike proliferations within the diencephalon. No lenses and on the left side(More)
