The purpose of this study was to compare the midterm results of a radiological and surgical approach to uterine fibroids. One hundred twenty-one women with reproductive plans who presented with an intramural fibroid(s) larger than 4 cm were randomly selected for either uterine artery embolization (UAE) or myomectomy. We compared the efficacy and safety of(More)
Our aim was to determine whether the anatomical configuration of the posterior fossa and its substructures might represent a predisposition factor for the occurrence of clinical neurovascular conflict in trigeminal neuralgia (TN). We used MRI volumetry in 18 patients with TN and 15 controls. The volume of the pontomesencephalic cistern, Meckel’s cave and(More)
A uniquely successful neurosurgical intervention in a four-month-old child suffering from status epilepticus (SE) caused by focal cortical dysplasia is reported. Seizures appeared at postnatal day 10 and culminated as medically intractable focal motor SE three months later. The first MRI scan at postnatal week 2 was inconclusive; electroclinical features(More)
STUDY DESIGN A prospective study. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare the 3 different methods of interbody fusion of the cervical spine-autograft in stand-alone technique, autograft with anterior plate, and polyetheretherketone cage supported by anterior plate. The clinical and radiological data obtained were analyzed and discussed. SUMMARY(More)
Patients' life expectancy, clinical symptomatology and the extent of carotid stenosis are the most important factors when deciding whether to perform carotid endarterectomy (CEA) in patients with carotid stenosis. Therefore, the accuracy of measuring carotid stenosis is of utmost importance. Patients with internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis were(More)
A multifunctional surgical suite with intraoperative 3.0 T MRI (ioMRI) has been operating at the Central Military Hospital, Prague since April 2008. Our experiences over the past year and the effect of ioMRI on the extent of pituitary adenoma resection are evaluated. Eighty-six pituitary adenoma resections were performed in 85 patients with ioMRI in the(More)
Various approaches have been described and used for operating on lesions in the orbit. The approach selection is based on the pathology in the orbit and its exact location. This study was performed to evaluate the endoscopic endonasal approach (EEA) for orbital lesions and application of intraoperative MRI (iMRI). Since 2006, the present authors have(More)
The aim of this article is to describe the feasibility of performing intraoperative MR imaging in patients with spinal cord lesions and the potential value of this technique. The authors report a case involving a 28-year-old man who presented with chronic cervical pain and pain along the ulnar side of the forearms during neck flexion. Findings on clinical(More)
AIM Several atypical hysteroscopy findings have been described in association with uterine artery embolization (UAE). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the types and frequency of these findings in the largest published series of patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS Premenopausal patients after bilateral UAE for symptomatic intramural fibroid underwent(More)
BACKGROUND Primary brain tumors in motor eloquent areas are associated with high-risk surgical procedures because of potentially permanent and often disabling motor deficits. Intraoperative primary motor cortex mapping and corticospinal tract (CST) monitoring are well-developed and reliable techniques. Imaging of the CST by diffusion tensor tractography(More)
