BACKGROUND Numerous studies with conflicting results have tried to prove the influence of seasonal variations or different meteorological factors on the occurrence of aneurysmal subarachnoidal hemorrhage (SAH). The aim of this study was to establish a mathematical model of a series of aneurysmal rupture dates in different patients and verify a temporal(More)
Chronic subdural hematoma is usually caused by minor head trauma and occurs frequently with older people. Predisposing factors include alcohol abuse, epilepsy and coagulopathy. This report presents a 65-year old woman who had a large, mixed density, left sided compressive chronic subdural hematoma diagnosed by computed tomography. She also displayed a(More)
We report a patient with combined thrombophilia--protein C deficiency and mild hyperhomocysteinemia with total spontaneous thrombosis of a basilar tip aneurysm after subarachnoid hemorrhage, without neurological deficit. At admission, the patient had headache, drowsiness, and nausea, with no neurological deficit. Computed tomography (CT) did not show the(More)
INTRODUCTION A gunshot head injury, characterized by a huge intensity of mechanical force, in addition to the direct tissue damage at the location of direct impact, may cause a skull and skull base fracture, distant from the the point of direct impact, which could be further complicated by creating a communication between endocranium and nasal/paranasal(More)
BACKGROUND Currently there are a few scoring systems for malignant astrocytoma, but they are not widely accepted. The aim of this study was to create a scoring system for supratentorial malignant astrocytoma, which could be used in both developed and developing societies. METHODS This study was performed in 128 patients who had supratentorial malignant(More)
In the period 1982-1991, 1511 patients with compressive degenerative lumbar radiculopathy underwent surgery at the Clinic of Neurosurgery in Novi Sad. 1053 patients (69.69%) were operated due to radiculopathy of herniated disc etiology, 83 patients (5.50%) because od spondylotic radiculopathy and 38 patients (2.51%) because of spinal stenosis. 327 patients(More)
UNLABELLED To establish the possibilities of functional magnetic resonance (fMRI) in the assesment of preservation of the motor and speech brain functions in the primary brain tumour patients planed for neurosurgery. METHODS AND MATERIAL fMRI of motor and/or speech areas was performed on 3T MRI unit in 17 patients with primary brain tumours and dominant(More)
INTRODUCTION Traumatic brain injuries have major socio-economic importance due to their frequency, high mortality and serious consequences. According to their nature the consequences of these injuries may be classified as neurological, psychiatric and esthetic. Various lesions of brain structures cause neurological consequences such as disturbance of motor(More)
The paper reviews the results of a prospective study on external morphologic characteristics of communicating testicular hydrocele in boys, which might help the prognosis of future events in the peritoneal testicular covering. We examined 216 cases of communicating hydrocele and controlled their size and consistency every 3 months throughout the period of(More)
INTRODUCTION Brain concussion is a brain dysfunction without any macroscopic structural damage, caused by mechanical force. This research paper presents the occurrence and basic characteristics of patients with brain concussion without skull fracture. The second aim of this paper is to answer questions, related to this problem, neurosurgeons are most often(More)
