BACKGROUND Numerous studies with conflicting results have tried to prove the influence of seasonal variations or different meteorological factors on the occurrence of aneurysmal subarachnoidal hemorrhage (SAH). The aim of this study was to establish a mathematical model of a series of aneurysmal rupture dates in different patients and verify a temporal(More)
The paper refers to the importance of maintenance management to increase the vehicle fleet energy efficiency. The fleet maintenance management influences as the vehicle maintenance process itself as well as the primary transport process but also their environment. In order to increase fleet energy efficiency by means of a more efficient maintenance(More)
We report a patient with combined thrombophilia--protein C deficiency and mild hyperhomocysteinemia with total spontaneous thrombosis of a basilar tip aneurysm after subarachnoid hemorrhage, without neurological deficit. At admission, the patient had headache, drowsiness, and nausea, with no neurological deficit. Computed tomography (CT) did not show the(More)
INTRODUCTION A gunshot head injury, characterized by a huge intensity of mechanical force, in addition to the direct tissue damage at the location of direct impact, may cause a skull and skull base fracture, distant from the the point of direct impact, which could be further complicated by creating a communication between endocranium and nasal/paranasal(More)
BACKGROUND Currently there are a few scoring systems for malignant astrocytoma, but they are not widely accepted. The aim of this study was to create a scoring system for supratentorial malignant astrocytoma, which could be used in both developed and developing societies. METHODS This study was performed in 128 patients who had supratentorial malignant(More)
In the period 1982-1991, 1511 patients with compressive degenerative lumbar radiculopathy underwent surgery at the Clinic of Neurosurgery in Novi Sad. 1053 patients (69.69%) were operated due to radiculopathy of herniated disc etiology, 83 patients (5.50%) because od spondylotic radiculopathy and 38 patients (2.51%) because of spinal stenosis. 327 patients(More)
INTRODUCTION Nasal liquorrhea indicates a cerebrospinal fluid fistula, an open communication between the intracranial cerebrospinal fluid and the nasal cavity. It can be traumatic and spontaneous. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess the outcome of endoscopic repair of cerebrospinal fluid fistula using fluorescein. METHODS This retrospective(More)
Lumbar disc herniation (LDH) is the most common disease among working population requiring surgical intervention. This study aims to predict the return to work after operative treatment of LDH based on the observational study including 153 patients. The classification problem was approached using decision trees (DT), support vector machines (SVM) and(More)
Treatment results of 200 injured with the lesions of 282 magistral blood vessels were analyzed. All were combat injuries, and the majority was caused by the fragments of explosive device. The mechanisms of such the injuries produced large defects of soft tissues as well as the high level of the wound contamination, which aggravated reconstructive procedures(More)
