OBJECT The morphological and functional impairments of neurons and their connections caused by hydrocephalus, and their restoration by ventricular shunt placement were investigated in experimental hydrocephalus by the immunostaining of neurofilaments, which constitute the major component of the neuronal cytoskeleton. METHODS Progressive hydrocephalus was(More)
Secondary trigeminal neuralgia and isolated trigeminal neuropathy due to ischemic lesion of the pons are very rare. We report 2 patients with pontine infarct transecting the central trigeminal pathways resulting in trigeminal neuropathy and/or neuralgia. Case 1: A 48-year-old female presented with lancinating pain and paresthesia and hypesthesia in the(More)
The performance improvement of radiation diagnosis devices makes it possible to get detailed medical images. The objective of this research is to develop a computer aided diagnosis system that uses advanced information of images for various kinds of internal organs and diseases. In order to make the computer aided diagnosis system do the work, as it must(More)
The research of a relic excavated from remains has become popular. But a laser measurement device is mainly used for measuring shapes of fragments and can't measure uneven complicated shapes. So the X-ray CT (Computed Tomography) to make 3-D measurement possible has begun to be used as a measurement device, but the model generation needs the hand of man(More)
We report a 65-year-old Japanese female whose primary symptom of myasthenia gravis was related to rhinolalia aperta. The vocal tract during vowel production was evaluated using two-dimensional fast advanced spin echo (2D-FASE) MR images on supine and prone position. Before treatment, MRI on prone position demonstrated anterior shift of the palatine uvula(More)
Medial medullary infarct (MMI) is a rare type of brain stem infarction. Its clinical picture was characterized by contralateral hemiparesis, deep sensory disturbance, and ipsilateral hypoglossal paresis, but conjugate deviation or nystagmus is uncommon as initial symptom. Case 1: A 73-year-old man developed vomiting and vertigo. Examination revealed right(More)
The results of radiotherapy combined with hyperbaric oxygen in 9 patients with malignant glioma were compared with those of radiotherapy without hyperbaric O2 in 12 patients. This is the first report of a pilot study of irradiation immediately after exposure to hyperbaric O2 in humans. All patients receiving this treatment showed more than 50% regression of(More)
We report a case of carotid-cavernous fistula(CCF) without conjunctival congestion and showing radiographically paradoxical worsening ocular movement. A 71-year-old woman suffered from mild double vision. The first carotid angiogram revealed left CCF, which was supplied by dural branches of the internal and external carotid arteries and drained out well via(More)
We present the case of an 8-year-old boy who was injured in a bicycle accident and was admitted with a right frontal skull fracture, an acute epidural hematoma, a right frontal laceration, and a subperiosteal hematoma on admission. After the frontal cutaneous suture, the subperiosteal hematoma was aspirated by the percutaneous needle. Two hours later, a CT(More)
