Background. If detected in time, delayed cerebral vasospasm after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) may be treated by balloon angioplasty or chemical vasospasmolysis in order to enhance cerebral blood flow (CBF) and protect the brain from ischemic damage. This study was conceived to compare the diagnostic accuracy of detailed neurological(More)
Severe brain edema is observed in a number of patients suffering from subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Little is known about its pathogenesis and time-course in the first hours after SAH. This study was performed to investigate the development of brain edema and its correlation with brain perfusion after experimental SAH. Male Sprague–Dawley rats, randomly(More)
Delayed cerebral vasospasm following subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a serious medical complication, characterized by constriction of cerebral arteries leading to varying degrees of cerebral ischemia. Numerous clinical and experimental studies have been performed in the last decades; however, the pathophysiologic mechanism of cerebral vasospasm after SAH(More)
Laser Doppler fluxmetry (LDF) and electrocorticography (ECG) are techniques used to indicate successful occlusion of the middle cerebral artery (MCAO) in the intraluminal filament model of ischemic stroke. However, each method has several advantages and drawbacks. This article describes a simple technique to simultaneously and continuously monitor LDF and(More)
BACKGROUND Surgical resection of intra-axial tumors is a challenging procedure because of indistinct tumor margins, infiltration, and displacement of white matter tracts surrounding the lesion. Hence, gross total tumor resection without causing new neurologic deficits is demanding, especially in tumor sites adjoining eloquent structures. Feasibility of the(More)
BACKGROUND Mobile 3D fluoroscopes have become increasingly available in neurosurgical operating rooms. In this series, the image quality and value of intraoperative 3D fluoroscopy with intravenous contrast agent for the evaluation of aneurysm occlusion and vessel patency after clip placement was assessed in patients who underwent surgery for intracranial(More)
Background. Intraoperative myelography has been reported for decompression control in multilevel lumbar disease. Cervical myelography is technically more challenging. Modern 3D fluoroscopy may provide a new opportunity supplying multiplanar images. This study was performed to determine the feasibility and image quality of intraoperative cervical myelography(More)
Primary intramedullary spinal glioblastoma multiforme (sGBM) with a secondary cerebral manifestation is a very rare entity with a poor outcome. Case studies show a mean average of survival of 10 months after diagnosis. These tumors tend to develop at a young age. A combination with an arteriovenous malformation in the same location has never been published(More)
Suboccipital craniectomy is a conventional approach for exploring cerebellopontine angle lesions. A variety of techniques have been successfully employed to reconstruct a craniectomy. This is the first report about the histological findings after performing a cranioplasty by using a mixture of autologous bone chips and human allogenic fibrin glue. A(More)
This article reviews experimental and clinical data on the use of magnesium as a neuroprotective agent in various conditions of cerebral ischemia. Whereas magnesium has shown neuroprotective properties in animal models of global and focal cerebral ischemia, this effect could not be reproduced in a large human stroke trial. These conflicting results may be(More)
