Supratentorial primitive neuroectodermal tumors (sPNET) occurring in adults are rare. Only 56 such cases have been previously reported. This report documents a 56-year-old male who presented with the chief complaint of right facial palsy. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed left frontal and bilateral periventricular lesions. Surgery was performed for(More)
BACKGROUND In ruptured cerebral aneurysms (RCAs), identification of the rupture point of a cerebral aneurysm is useful for treatment planning. In unruptured cerebral aneurysms (URCAs), detection of the risk of aneurysmal rupture is also useful for patient management. OBJECTIVE Electrocardiographic (ECG)-gated 3D-CT angiography was performed for patients(More)
Although human cells exposed to DNA-methylating agents undergo mismatch repair (MMR)-dependent G(2) arrest, the basis for the linkage between MMR and the G(2) checkpoint is unclear. We noted that mitogen-activated protein kinase p38alpha was activated in MMR-proficient human glioma cells exposed to the chemotherapeutic methylating agent temozolomide (TMZ)(More)
Patients with chronic renal failure are at greater risk of developing atherosclerosis than healthy individuals, and recent data suggest that the putative uremic toxin indoxyl sulfate (IS) promotes the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. The present study examined the effects of IS on vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) with respect to reactive oxygen species(More)
The recent progress in chemotherapy for malignant gliomas is attributable to the introduction of the DNA-methylating agent temozolomide (TMZ); however, drug resistance remains a major issue. Previous studies have shown that TMZ induces prolonged arrest of human glioma cells in the G2/M phase of the cell cycle followed by a senescence-like phenomenon or(More)
Patients with poor-grade subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) are often complicated with acute cardiopulmonary dysfunctions, particularly neurogenic pulmonary edema (NPE) and takotsubo-like cardiomyopathy (TCM). This study retrospectively investigated the incidence, demographics, clinical characteristics, and outcomes of patients with SAH complicated with both NPE(More)
Neurogenic pulmonary edema (NPE) occurs frequently after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), and excessive release of catecholamines (epinephrine/norepinephrine) has been suggested as its principal cause. The objective of this retrospective study is to evaluate the relative contribution of each catecholamine in the pathogenesis of NPE associated with(More)
Grade II astrocytoma is defined as a low-grade tumor, yet patients have a wide range of survival and tumors can quickly progress to high-grade astrocytoma/glioblastoma. Previous studies using comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) failed to demonstrate frequent copy number aberrations (CNA) in these tumors. This may be related to technical difficulties(More)
Rhabdoid tumor (RT) of the central nervous system is an uncommon and aggressive neoplasm that usually affects pediatric patients. Currently, these tumors are classified as malignant RT or atypical teratoid/RT. Another entity of intraparenchymal brain tumor with a rhabdoid component is the extremely rare rhabdoid glioblastoma. A 23-year-old woman presented(More)
BACKGROUND Computer-based simulation is necessary to clarify the hemodynamics in brain aneurysm. Specifically for endovascular treatments, the effects of indwelling intravascular devices on blood stream need to be considered. The most recent technology used for cerebral aneurysm treatment is related to the use of flow diverters to reduce the amount of flow(More)
