The arteries of the circle of Willis in fetal brains of 20-40 weeks of gestational age were studied with the operating microscope. The majority of fetuses were between 24-32 weeks of age. Our findings were as follows: 1) the average diameters of all segments were 4-5 times narrower than the average diameters in adults, and the average lengths of the same(More)
A rare vascular anomaly was found in a 21-week-old fetal brain. It consisted of an anastomotic loop between the internal carotid artery and the anterior cerebral artery. Other variations and anomalies were also found. Anomalies and variations of the circle of Willis are probably genetically determined and develop at an early embryonic stage. They are(More)
INTRODUCTION Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) may be defined as any type of the narrowing of the spinal nerve root canal (the lateral recess), intervertebral foramina, or its combination. It may be local, segmental or generalized; it can be caused by bone or soft tissue, and the narrowing can involve the bony canal or the dural sac or both. The normal sagital(More)
In a consecutive series of 268 patients harboring saccular aneurysms confirmed by digital subtraction angiography (DSA) all major blood vessels of the brain, 36 patients (13.4%) with multiple aneurysms were identified. Majority of them (around 58%) were between 40 to 60 years of age, around 22% were below 40 years of age, but no was younger than 30 years of(More)
In the neurosurgical approach to intracranial aneurysms which are often accompanied by arterial spasm and cortical ischaemia, monitoring procedures aim to obtain useful information on cerebral function. SEPs evoked by stimulation of the median nerve at the wrist and of the tibial nerve at the medial malleolus were registered in 45 patients with intracranial(More)
Temporary occlusion of the main artery feeding aneurysm with intraoperative monitoring of somatosensitive evoked potentials was performed in 10 patients: in the majority of them because premature aneurysm rupture, and in 3 patients to facilitate the dissection of the aneurysm and application of a definitive clip. The duration of temporary occlusion was(More)
