AD, a 45-year-old man, presented with a severe and global anterograde amnesia following surgery for removal of a colloid cyst. Structural neuroimaging confirmed bilateral lesions to the fornix and a small lesion in the basal forebrain. Testing for remote episodic memory of autobiographical events, and for remote semantic memory of personal and public(More)
Microinjections of 2-10 micrograms of carbachol into the mesencephalic reticular formation (MRF) and pontine reticular formation (PRF) of rats consistently induced local electroencephalographic seizures. These seizures had organized, rhythmical patterns and were long lasting. They spread powerfully and bilaterally between the MRF and PRF and also to the(More)
Posterior meningocele is an uncommon form of spina bifida. We present a case of unique posterior meningocele diagnosed at the early second trimester anatomical scan using 2D and 3D ultrasound. The sonographic appearance resembled "lasso". The prenatal follow-up was uneventful, with no demonstration of tethered cord. Clinical, neurological and radiological(More)
Osteopetrosis is an inherited skeletal condition of defective osteoclastic resorption of bone resulting in increased bone density. Osseous changes occur most severely at the base of the skull. Important clinical symptoms include cranial nerve palsies due to uni- or bilateral obliteration of cranial nerve foramina including deafness, facial paralysis, and(More)
BACKGROUND Endoscopic resection is becoming a well-established treatment option for patients with colloid cysts of the third ventricle. A disadvantage of this approach is the decreased ability to resect cysts in their entirety. Correlations between magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features and cyst content could potentially help surgeons decide on the(More)
Cranioplasty is a relatively straightforward and common procedure, yet it carries a substantial rate of infection that causes major morbidity and mortality. The authors' objective was to assess the effect of various variables on the risk of developing post-cranioplasty infections, and to enable the prediction and reduction of its incidence, contributing to(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine the utility of an intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (i-MRI) system (Polestar N-10, 20, 30) in achieving maximal resection of intra-axial brain lesions. METHODS The subjects comprised 163 patients with intra-axial brain lesions who underwent resection at Sheba Medical Center using the Polestar from(More)
Tethered spinal cord syndrome is characterized by a pathological fixation of the cord resulting in a low situated conus medullaris below the L1-2 interspace. With growth and development, this results in excessive cord stretching causing neuronal dysfunction. Untethering of the spinal cord aims to prevent the development of neurological or orthopedic(More)
This is a report of a prenatal sonographic diagnosis of a lateral ventricle choroid plexus papilloma in an in vitro fertilization (IVF)-induced pregnancy of a 40-year-old woman. The baby was delivered at 35 weeks of gestation and surgery was performed 5 days later with a good outcome. Several cases of malignancies associated with IVF are reported in the(More)
