Prospective and retrospective language evaluations and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) scans were performed in order to study the relationship between post-stroke recovery fromExpand
Anterior cervical vertebrectomy and interbody fusion for multi-level spondylosis and ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament.
Multi-level cervical spondylosis and ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL) are well-documented causes of myelopathy. The choice of surgical procedures remain controversial.Expand
Visualizing the Dynamics of Cerebral Aneurysms with Four-dimensional Computed Tomographic Angiography
OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to assess cerebral aneurysm hemodynamics with four-dimensional (4-D) computed tomographic (CT) angiography. METHODS: Multislice computed tomography with aExpand
Intracranial Heme Metabolism and Cerebral Vasospasm After Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage
Background and Purpose— The goal of this prospective study was to clarify the potential role of an inducible heme-metabolizing enzyme, heme oxygenase (HO)-1, and an inducible iron-detoxifyingExpand
Microsurgical anatomy of the lower cervical spine and cord.
The authors dissected the cervical spine and its surrounding structures from 40 adult cadavers under a surgical microscope. The anterior part of the spine and spinal cord was examined afterExpand
Spontaneous haemorrhage into metastatic brain tumours after stereotactic radiosurgery using a linear accelerator
Objective: To determine the incidence and clinical characteristics of spontaneous haemorrhage into metastatic brain tumours after radiosurgery. Methods: Intratumour haemorrhage rate, clinicalExpand
Cerebrospinal fluid ferritin in chronic hydrocephalus after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage
ObjectivesSubarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a common cause of chronic hydrocephalus. Blood in the subarachnoid space is intracranially metabolized to bilirubin and iron, and free iron is thereafterExpand
Posterior fossa arteriovenous malformation associated with persistent primitive trigeminal artery--case report.
A 21-year-old female presented with an unusual case of posterior fossa arteriovenous malformation (AVM) associated with ipsilateral persistent primitive trigeminal artery (PPTA), manifesting asExpand
Decompression of the vertebral artery for bow-hunter's stroke. Case report.
A case of cerebellar infarction induced by repeated neck rotation ("bow-hunter's stroke") is reported. The most likely mechanism is that repeated rotational neck movement brings about thickening ofExpand
Trigeminal neuralgia: compression of the trigeminal nerve by an elongated and dilated basilar artery.
A patient with trigeminal neuralgia caused by direct compression by an elongated basilar artery of the 5th nerve at the zone of entry of its sensory root into the pons is presented. Rhizotomy of theExpand
