The purpose of this study was to evaluate the results of CFR for the patients with anterior skull base malignancies in our hospital. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed 17 patients with anterior skull base malignancies(More)
Distal peripheral artery aneurysms in moyamoya disease (MMD) remain difficult to treat given their deep location, small size, and fragility. Here, we report two cases of choroidal artery aneurysms associated with MMD who were treated through direct clipping and coil embolization. Timing of aneurysm formation remains unclear, however, annual follow-up DSA(More)
BACKGROUND A lumbar drainage catheter is frequently placed intra-operatively to decrease fluid pressure on the brain in aneurysmal subarachnoid cases. In rare cases, this catheter placement can lead to intracranial hypotension, resulting in brain stem herniation termed "brain sag" and it can lead to neurological injury and may prove to be fatal. We present(More)
BACKGROUND Olfactory neuroblastoma (ONB) is an uncommon neoplasm that arises from olfactory epithelium in the nasal cavity near the cribriform plate. Although local recurrence or direct extension along olfactory epithelium and metastasis to the central nervous system has been reported, remote leptomeningeal metastasis is quite rare. In our report of a(More)
