The authors describe a new method for a frontal interhemispheric approach when treating craniopharyngiomas of the third ventricle or anterior communicating artery aneurysms. This technique ensures preservation of the bridging veins and the olfactory nerves. This "basal interfalcine approach" involves a craniotomy in the centrobasal portion of the frontal(More)
A case of intracranial traumatic aneurysms occurring after surgical treatment of a large cerebral aneurysm is reported. A 56-year-old man was admitted to our department with complaints of headache, nuchal pain and nausea. Left carotid angiography (Lt-CAG) revealed a large aneurysm, measuring 20 mm in maximum diameter, of the azygos anterior cerebral artery.(More)
The computerized tomography (CT) findings were analyzed in five cases of subdural tension pneumocephalus following surgery for chronic subdural hematoma. They were compared with CT scans in 14 cases of asymptomatic subdural pneumocephalus. In this study, two new CT findings were identified that suggest increased tension of the subdural air. Subdural air(More)
—Recently, Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) systems are intensively studied and widely used in everyday applications, such as, retailing, supply chain management, and medical equipment management. Tags in RFID systems are highly efficient to be managed and tracked, but at the same time suffering from impersonation and privacy problems. Consequently ,(More)
—Explosive progress in networking and outsourcing storage increases the use of information retrieval technologies, in massive datasets. Nowadays, there are varieties of storage-providers through the internet, such as e-mail accounts and public database, which are convenient to store and exchange electronic files and medias. Typically, the storage-provider(More)
Plasma fibrin/fibrinogen degradation product (FDP) determinations and CT scans were performed in 26 patients on the first, third, and seventh day after head injury. Plasma FDP concentrations were increased in the patients with cerebral contusion shown on CT scans, while the plasma FDP values were normal in the patients with various sized epidural(More)
A 48-year-old man had his left eye ball enucleated by fingers of an assailant. The optic nerve, measuring 4 cm in length, was attached to the enucleated eye ball, but there was neither a wound in his eyelids nor cerebrospinal fluid leakage from inside the orbit. He was confused, but responsive and was able to recognize other persons with his right eye. His(More)
Subdural tension pneumocephalus (TP) following surgery for chronic subdural hematoma was analyzed in 5 cases from clinical standpoints of view, especially from CT findings. The cases were compared with 14 cases of subdural asymptomatic pneumocephalus (AP). The TP tends to complicate elderly patients who showed a poor re-expansion of the brain after(More)
