The aim of this study is to investigate the sulcal and the gyral anatomy of the orbitofrontal cortex with its arterial supply. Ten gross formaline fixed adult brains (20 hemispheres) were used to show the gyral and sulcal anatomy of the inferior frontal lobe, and its arterial supply. The arteries were investigated with special attention to the relationship(More)
OBJECT Hydatid cysts are rare, but most often they occur in the liver and lungs. Cerebral manifestation is very rare, and surgery is the main treatment. The goal of surgery is to remove the cysts in toto without rupture. The aim of this study was to investigate the surgical technique of removing cerebral hydatid cysts and to show the possible pitfalls of(More)
BACKGROUND There are few large-volume studies on the repair of peripheral nerve lesions caused by gunshot wounds. In this study, the results of peripheral nerve repair are analyzed, and the factors influencing the outcome are investigated. METHODS During a 40-year period, 2210 peripheral nerve lesions in 2106 patients who sustained gunshot injury were(More)
The tanycytic ependymoma is an extremely rare, primitive neuroectodermal tumor, arising from the ependymoglial cells or tanycytes. Such cells are generally seen in the primitive nervous system instead of the mature ependymal cells. The tanycytic ependymoma described in this report was found in a 42-year-old man. Histological analysis strongly suggested that(More)
STUDY DESIGN A prospective clinical investigation. OBJECTIVE To determine the clinical significance of congenital lumbosacral malformations in young male patients with subacute or chronic low back pain and to investigate a possible worsening of the clinical picture with the concurrence of transitional vertebra (TV) or spina bifida occulta (SBO). SUMMARY(More)
Although split cord malformations have been well documented in children, there is no consensus about their surgical indications and clinical course in adults because of their rarity. Medical records of nine young adult patients with split cord malformations were reviewed retrospectively. The most common complaint was radicular low back pain persisting more(More)
BACKGROUND Although many experimental and clinical studies were performed on the pathophysiology and treatment of spinal cord injury (SCI), the electrophysiological and ultrastructural changes of the spinal cord were not precisely evaluated. AIMS To investigate the effect of mannitol on Somatosensory Evoked Potentials (SSEP), postoperative neurological(More)
The authors report on a child with a composite type of split cord malformation (SCM). The patient presented with symptoms of a common cold. The diagnosis of SCM was made based on computerized tomography and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of whole spinal axis. The SCM was Type I at T-4 and T-5 and Type II at T-12, according to the classification developed(More)
OBJECT The structure of the filum terminale (FT) is important in the development of tethered cord syndrome (TCS) in children. Although many studies have been performed on the histological structure of the FT in adults, there has been no detailed investigation for those of fetuses. The aim of this study was to examine the histological structure of the FT in(More)
