OBJECTIVE Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is a common form of intracranial hemorrhage with a substantial recurrence rate. Atorvastatin may reduce CSDH via its anti-inflammatory and pro-angiogenesis effects, but its effectiveness for preventing recurrent CSDH has never been explored. We hypothesized that atorvastatin is effective in reducing recurrence of(More)
Modulation of a group of cells or tissue needs to be very precise in order to exercise effective control over the cell population under investigation. Optogenetic tools have already demonstrated to be of great value in the study of neuronal circuits and in neuromodulation. Ideally, they should permit very accurate resolution, preferably down to the single(More)
Electrocardiac signal is one of the most important signals which is used to trigger ventricular assist device (VAD), and the delay time of VAD assistance is very important to get a satisfied result. Proper delay will give VAD relatively enough time to assist, avoiding left heart failure caused by the collision of the heart and VAD during systolic phase.(More)
BACKGROUND Primary intracranial germinomas occurring in the cerebral hemisphere are extremely rare, with only a few reported cases in the literature. We describe an unusual case of a primary germinoma that developed in the insular lobe, with little involvement in the basal frontal lobe. CASE DESCRIPTION A 19-year-old man presented with headache and(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to summarize the clinical characteristics of Rosai-Dorfman disease primarily involving the central nervous system and to explore diagnosis and treatment. METHODS We analyzed the clinical, imaging, and pathologic characteristics; treatment; and prognosis in 3 cases of Rosai-Dorfman disease primarily involving the central nervous(More)
We evaluated the curative effect of dexmedetomidine on paroxysmal sympathetic hyperactivity (PSH) in a retrospective study of 72 PSH patients after neurosurgery. Our results showed that dexmedetomidine was superior to propofol for treatment of PSH with respect to: average time needed to reduce paroxysmal hypertension (PH) to <140/90 mmHg (29.03±8.86 vs.(More)
Background: Intracranial supratentorial neuroenteric cysts are very rare lesions in the central nervous system. We described a neuroenteric cyst of the left lateral ventricle in a 38-year old male, which had been confirmed by using immunohistochemistry. To date,this was the first reported case in which the neuroenteric cyst was located in the lateral(More)
Capsaicin is recognized as a natural tumor preventive compound and exhibits a remarkable anticancer action. Strong inhibitory role of capsaicin on gliomas has been well documented. However, the use of capsaicin is limited due to its hydrophobicity, low affinity, and short half-life. The present study aimed to explore the physiochemical characteristics of(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the surgical techniques of the modified presigmoid trans-partial bony labyrinth approach and the advantages in the exposure of the petroclival region and in the treatment of lesions in this area. METHODS Between April and October of 2012, a study on modification of the surgical approach was performed on 15 cadaveric heads. On the(More)
