PURPOSE The effect of endovascular treatment for vasospasm was investigated by analysing the results of patients treated in Wakayama City in 1994. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ninety nine patients with ruptured cerebral aneurysms, who survived more than one week and were treated in Wakayama City in 1994, were studied. Twenty five patients caused symptomatic(More)
BACKGROUND The efficacy of preoperative embolization for hypervascular meningiomas mainly fed by the branches of the ophthalmic arteries was examined. CASES AND METHODS Five hypervascular meningiomas mainly fed by the branches of the ophthalmic arteries, four posterior ethmoidal arteries, one anterior falx artery, and one recurrent middle meningeal artery(More)
Spontaneous subperiosteal hematoma of the orbit is extremely rare. This is a case of an 81-year-old woman. The presenting symptom was protrusion of the right eye with severe intraorbital pain. Computed tomography scanning showed a high-density area in the upper part of the right orbit, which, at operation, was found to be a subperiosteal hematoma of the(More)

To investigate the severity of oxygen desaturation following voluntary hyperventilation (VHV) in normal subjects and its possible relation to chemoresponsiveness, we examined respiration following VHV in 16 normal male subjects. Monitoring was performed according to the standard polysomnography protocol including measurements of arterial oxygen saturation(More)
A new silicone microballoon was developed for the percutaneous transluminal angioplasty of smaller intracranial vessels, such as A1, A2 and M2. This balloon was 0.5 x 2.0 mm in the deflated condition and became 2.2 x 6.5 mm inflated with 0.02 mL of fluid, and its bursting pressure was 2 atm. Two illustrative cases are presented. The first case was not(More)
Strategic recanalization of the occluded cerebral vessels has shown promise as a therapy for embolism and thrombosis in the acute stage. A single-dose of urokinase (UK) administered by intravenous and intraarterial routes was usually designed to restore patency of the infarct-related arteries and reperfuse the area of infarction. However, thrombolytic(More)
A case of ruptured distal anterior cerebral artery aneurysm associated with neurogenic pulmonary edema is presented. It is suggested that this association should not be accepted as a "taboo" for radical intervention followed by a proper management of ventilation with positive end-expiratory pressure to maintain the anesthetic condition. Cardiorespiratory(More)
We reported a case of a 62-year-old right-handed woman who had transcortical sensory aphasia caused by a metastatic brain tumor in the left frontal lobe. She had mild right hemiparesis involving the face, without hyperactive tendon reflexes. She had neither sensory disturbance nor other cranial nerve deficits. Her spontaneous speech was fluent, and she(More)
A case of acute myeloblastic leukemia associated with multiple intracerebral hematomas is presented. A 19-year-old woman with a two week's history of mild fever suddenly lost consciousness, and was afflicted right severe hemiparesis, left mild hemiparesis and motor aphasia. A CT scan revealed bilateral thalamic hyperdense lesions and paraventricular small(More)
