In 19 patients with chronic subdural hematoma, coagulation and fibrinolysis in venous blood taken at the time of surgery and in the hematoma contents aspirated from chronic subdural hematoma were studied. Compared with coagulation results for venous blood, the hematoma contents demonstrated marked prolongation of the recalcification time, prothrombin time,(More)
The authors reviewed 22 cases of intracranial aneurysm of the anterior part of the circle of Willis. All patients presented with the signs and symptoms of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and were in good neurological condition on admission. In all cases, early operation was performed to obliterate aneurysm. Subarachnoid blood clots were extensively removed(More)
Four cases of the cheiro-oral syndrome are reported, with a review of the clinical symptoms and signs and the neuroradiological methods used to demonstrate the responsible lesion. In each case, angiography, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were performed. The lesion was found in the thalamus in three cases and in the pons in(More)
Almost one tenth of more than 370 hepatectomies, mostly for tumors, involved resection of major parts of the caudate lobe, subsegment 1. Five of them were for tumors or hemangiomas here, compressing or invading the vena cava; two were for metastases of colorectal cancer located very close to the junctions of the right and middle hepatic veins with the vena(More)
Coagulation factors were studied in 30 fluids aspirated from 25 patients with chronic subdural hematoma. Compared with the normal range for plasma, the hematoma fluids demonstrated a marked reduction in factors II, V, VII, VIII, and X, moderate reduction of factors IX and XI, and slight reduction of XII. Factor VII and IX inhibitors were not present or(More)
The recommended treatment for posterior fossa epidural hematoma has been prompt surgical evacuation. We report 2 patients who were treated conservatively. Both patients were younger than 10 years of age and developed subacute symptoms and signs. Serial computed tomography demonstrated complete resolution of the hematomas and no development of hydrocephalus(More)
A 28-year-old woman with a left frontoparietal anaplastic astrocytoma was treated postoperatively with a combination of cisplatin and 1-(4-amino-2-methylpyrimidine-5-yl) methyl-3-(2-chloroethyl)-3-nitrosourea hydrochloride (ACNU). The drugs were infused via the left supraophthalmic internal carotid artery in an attempt to avoid ocular toxicity. The patient(More)
The authors report four cases of intracranial hemorrhage associated with nontraumatic disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). Two cases demonstrated a sudden onset of intracerebral hemorrhage. The other two showed chronic subdural hematoma initially, followed by acute multiple intracranial hemorrhages or general hemorrhagic diathesis. The underlying(More)
