A computed tomographic method for analyzing the shrinkage of the basis pedunculi (BP) due to the secondary degeneration of the descending fibers was applied in correlation to the site of cerebral lesions in 89 chronic hemiplegic patients. Cerebral lesions in the anterior coronar radiata or the anterior limb of the capsula interna caused shrinkage of the(More)
We report a new simple method of cranial reconstruction using an autologous split calvarial bone, combined with free graft of temporal loose areolar tissue. A 58-year-old woman suffered from a cranium defect on her left side. The originating bone infection happened after initial brain tumor surgery. Part of the left side of her scalp just above the damaged(More)
To correlate cerebral blood flow (CBF) on xenon CT with the flow at common carotid artery (CCA) detected by color doppler ultrasonography, 82 patients (29 men, 53 women; 20-90 yrs) were examined. They included normal volunteers (n = 33), patients with cerebral infarction (n = 8), multiple lacunar infarcts (n = 12), dementia (n = 14), and parkinson disease(More)
Injury to the epiglottis and pharynx is very rare in neck trauma overall. We experienced such a rare case in which a 43-year-old woman had lacerations to the epiglottis and pharynx. It was difficult to determine the exact site of the damage by observing the cut. We believed there was no damage to the lower respiratory tract because her vital signs were(More)
PURPOSE To determine normal common carotid artery (CCA) flow volume, its relationship with age, and the predictability of cerebral blood flow (CBF) by color duplex sonography. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Forty-five healthy subjects (18 men, 27 women, 23-86 years old) and 13 patients (3 men, 10 women, 51-88 years old) without neurological disease underwent color(More)
We previously reported double innervation of rat mimetic muscles with labeling of facial nuclei. However, whether denervated mimetic muscles are affected after such nerve repair is not known. Rats were divided into five groups: Group A, controls; Group B, complete facial palsy; Group C, complete facial palsy with repair using end-to-end neurorrhaphy; Group(More)
Open abdomen management is commonly used for the critically injured patients to avoid abdominal compartment syndrome. But it usually continues for days to weeks and finally results in abdominal wall defect that is too wide to close at once. This article presents an alternative approach to close the giant abdominal wall defect by using the combination of(More)
