Decompressive craniectomy (DC) is a controversially discussed neurosurgical procedure to reduce elevated intracranial pressure after severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). In contrast to adults, several studies could show a benefit for the pediatric population, but still DC is considered as an emergency procedure only. The aim of our study was to identify(More)
A 53-year-old man with rheumatoid arthritis presented with radiating pain, numbness, and diminished motor strength in the right hand according to the ulnar nerve functions. Magnetic resonance imaging and peripheral nerve ultrasound revealed a widespread cystic lesion descending from the elbow joint along the ulnar nerve over a length of 8 cm. After relapse(More)
In epilepsy, the GABA and glutamate balance may be disrupted and a transient decrease in extracellular calcium occurs before and during a seizure. Flow Cytometry based fluorescence activated particle sorting experiments quantified synaptosomes from human neocortical tissue, from both epileptic and non-epileptic patients (27.7% vs. 36.9% GABAergic(More)
To learn whether epileptic seizures in Rasmussen encephalitis (RE) may be promoted by insufficient γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) release. (3) H-GABA was released from neocortical synaptosomes through transporter reversal following intrasynaptosomal Na(+) accumulation by veratridine that prevents inactivation of Na(+) channels. Tissues of three RE patients were(More)
