Collingridge's dilemma is one of the most well-established paradigms presenting a challenge to Technology Assessment (TA). This paper aims to reconstruct the dilemma from an analytic perspective and explicates three assumptions underlying the dilemma: the temporal, knowledge and power/actor assumptions. In the light of the recent transformation of the(More)
Central neurocytoma is a rare tumour of the CNS. It typically occurs in intraventricular location in young adults. The authors describe central neurocytoma in a 17-year-old woman, which was situated unusually for this type of tumour in the brain parenchyma. In this paper radiological and histopathological picture is presented.
BACKGROUND The occurence of aneurysms in young patients, under 18 years of age, is estimated at 0.5-2% of all diagnosed aneurysms. CASE REPORT We reported on a case of a 16-year-old patient with subarachnoid hemorrhage diagnosed due to a ruptured cerebral vessel aneurysm. The angio-CT revealed an aneurysm of the middle cerebral artery, in its distal(More)
Cell kinetic information is an important adjuvant to histological typing and grading of human brain tumours. In the current study detection of the proliferating potential of adenomas was attempted using silver colloid technique for argyrophilic protein associated with nucleolar organizer regions (AgNORs). The expression of nucleolar organizer regions was(More)
47 patients was treated surgically for posttraumatic cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea between 1977 and 1996 in the Department of Neurosurgery in Poznań. Cerebrospinal fluid fistula developed after road accident, less often because of assault, fall etc. Frontobasal fracture usually caused rhinorrhea and was verified by plain X-rays, computed tomography and(More)
The clinical course of 31 patients with conservatively treated intracranial arteriovenous malformations (AVM's) was followed-up. The average follow-up period was 8.2 years, 75% of patients were followed up for more than 5 years. The initial symptom was intracranial bleeding in 21 patients (68%), seizure in 5 (16%), neurological deficit in 2 (6.5%), headache(More)
A series of consecutive 782 children with severe head trauma and spinal cord injury who were managed surgically or conservatively in the Department of Neurosurgery, Medical Academy in Poznań during 31 years was analysed. The clinical history, severity of injury (scales AIS, ISS), outcome of head and spinal cord injuries are reviewed. Factors important in(More)
The incidence of various histological subtypes of intracranial meningiomas and recurrences was examined in 565 patients with surgically treated meningiomas in the Department of Neurosurgery in Poznań, between 1960-1992. Approximately 60% of the tumours were located on the convexity (39.5%) and parasagitally (23%). Histological diagnosis in 88% of the(More)
Clinical analysis of 27 patients with primary central nervous system lymphoma--Out of 4397 patients with intracranial neoplasms treated in the Department of Neurosurgery Medical Academy in Poznań between years 1956-1990, 27 patients i.e. 0.6% had primary central nervous system lymphoma. The patients age ranged from 15 to 63 years. In most patients the(More)
