BACKGROUND Aortic root dimension (ARD), an echocardiographic marker of aortopathy, has recently been associated with intracranial aneurysm eccentricity, suggesting a common underlying pathophysiology between intracranial aneurysm and aortopathy. OBJECTIVE To identify specific intracranial aneurysm-related parameters that independently correlate with ARD(More)
Frameless stereotactic neuronavigation has proven to be a feasible technology to acquire brain biopsies with good accuracy and little morbidity and mortality. New systems are constantly introduced into the neurosurgical armamentarium, although few studies have actually evaluated and compared the diagnostic yield, morbidity, and mortality of various(More)
The history of false localizing signs is intimately linked to the birth of modern neurology and the unraveling of the mysteries of localization through neurological examination at the end of the 19th century. This phenomenon has attracted much attention but has not been properly explained, even in the authoritative handbooks such as that by Oppenheim. A(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) who use anticoagulants prior to injury have an increased risk of intracranial complications. Sometimes these complications are delayed, even if the initial CT scan of the head is normal. CASE DESCRIPTION An 84-year-old woman who was using acenocoumarol presented elsewhere with mild TBI. She had no(More)
A 57-year-old woman presented with subacute vision loss of first the left, and later the right eye. She was diagnosed with granulomatous polyangiitis with hypertrophic pachymeningitis and optic nerve compression. Her visual acuity could not be permanently restored with immune suppressants alone, so a surgical decompression of the right optic nerve, via a(More)
BACKGROUND No definitive evidence exists on how intracranial hypertension should be treated in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). It is therefore likely that centers and practitioners individually balance potential benefits and risks of different intracranial pressure (ICP) management strategies, resulting in practice variation. The aim of this(More)
