The authors present the case of a 22-year-old woman who developed spontaneous intracranial hypotension as a result of a cerebrospinal fluid leak from a thoracic extradural arachnoid diverticulum. The patient was successfully treated by ligation of the diverticulum. The entity of spontaneous intracranial hypotension and its relevance to neurosurgery are(More)
The surgical and computerized tomographic myelography (CTM) features of 134 stenotic foraminal canals were correlated retrospectively in 95 patients. The myelographic site of stenosis was the entrance to the foraminal canal in 70 cases (52%) and the canal itself in 37 (28%); the site was not identified definitively in 27 (20%). At the entrance to the(More)
In three survivors of central pontine myelinolysis, dystonia (in two patients) and rest tremor (in one) were sequelae. The onset of these movements occurred 3 weeks to 5 months after the initial presentation with central pontine myelinolysis. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed basal ganglia lesions suggestive of extra-pontine myelinolysis in all three(More)
The accuracy of ophthalmodynamometry and ocular pneumoplethysmography for predicting pressure-significant lesions of the internal carotid system was compared in a series of 119 consecutive patients (210 arteries) having cerebral angiography. Overall accuracy (92.5%) for ocular pneumoplethysmography was significantly better than that for ophthalmodynamometry(More)
Ocular pneumoplethysmography and ophthalmodynamometry measure ophthalmic arterial system pressures to assess noninvasively the hemodynamics of the carotid system. A previously unreported circumstance in which these tests complement one another is central retinal artery occlusion. Typically, the ipsilateral retinal artery pressure, measured by(More)
