Surgical outcome of intramedullary spinal cord ependymoma was investigated in order to define the treatment strategy. We have operated on 18 cases of intramedullary spinal cord ependymoma based on the principle of radical resection. The follow-up periods ranged from 10 months to 249 months with an average of 86.2 months. Postoperative neurological status in(More)
Cerebral infarction in children is often caused by intracranial vascular disorder, cardiac disease, head injury, or infection, and is rarely induced by blood disease. In this paper, we describe an infantile case of cerebral infarction associated with thrombocytosis. A female infant of eight months of age developed left hemiparesis after a slight head(More)
INTRODUCTION Posterior capsule rupture causes instant vitreous contamination, resulting in endophthalmitis. However, transfer of intracameral moxifloxacin (MFLX) to the vitreous has not been examined in detail. We investigated vitreous antibiotic concentrations following intracameral MFLX in both ruptured and intact posterior capsular eyes. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND We have used magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) in screening for unruptured cerebral aneurysms since 1993. The development of high-resolution magnetic resonance (MR) imaging has led to a remarkable improvement in image quality. Three-dimensional (3D) MRA can be used for surgical simulation. Here, we report on the usefulness of and problems(More)
