OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical features of spinal schwannomas in patients with schwannomatosis and compare them with a large cohort of patients with solitary schwannomas and neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2). METHODS The study was a retrospective review of 831 patients with solitary schwannomas, 65 with schwannomatosis, and 102(More)
BACKGROUND Recent transcriptomic approaches have demonstrated that there are at least 4 distinct subgroups in medulloblastoma (MB); however, survival studies of molecular subgroups in adult MB have been inconclusive because of small sample sizes. The aim of this study is to investigate the molecular subgroups in adult MB and identify their clinical and(More)
The deprivation of sensory input after hearing damage results in functional reorganization of the brain including cross-modal plasticity in the sensory cortex and changes in cognitive processing. However, it remains unclear whether partial deprivation from unilateral auditory loss (UHL) would similarly affect the neural circuitry of cognitive processes in(More)
Camelina (Camelina sativa L.) is well known for its high unsaturated fatty acid content and great resistance to environmental stress. However, little is known about the molecular mechanisms of unsaturated fatty acid biosynthesis in this annual oilseed crop. To gain greater insight into this mechanism, the transcriptome profiles of seeds at different(More)
AIM To explore the feasibility and reliability of CO₂ laser soldering on the reconstruction of dura mater in the minipig model. MATERIAL AND METHODS Ten minipigs were divided into 2 groups as Group A (n=5) and Group B (n=5). Bilateral fronto-parietal craniotomy was performed and 2 cm × 1 cm dural defect created under general anesthesia. Then, the defect(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine risk factors and management of intraoperative cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage in endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal pituitary adenoma surgery. METHODS We conducted a retrospective review of 492 patients who, between April 2012 and August 2015, underwent endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal surgeries for resection of pituitary(More)
Although extensive research on neural plasticity resulting from hearing deprivation has been conducted, the direct influence of compromised audition on the auditory cortex and the potential impact of long durations of incomplete sensory stimulation on the adult cortex are still not fully understood. In this study, using voxel-based morphometry, we evaluated(More)
BACKGROUND Vision is important for patients with hearing loss caused by neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2). Tumors adjacent to the anterior visual pathway can potentially impair the vision. Only a few case reports and small-series studies have been reported. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical features of tumors adjacent to the anterior visual pathway in a(More)
OBJECTIVE Granular cell tumors (GCTs) in the central nervous system (CNS) are extremely rare. We report here a series of eight GCTs at various locations in the CNS and provide a full review of the published literature. METHODS Eight patients with pathologically confirmed GCT in the CNS were retrospectively reviewed. The patients were followed up via(More)
We performed a retrospective study to assess the mechanisms and surgical strategies for transsellar transsphenoid encephalocele, a rare type of basal encephalocele. Its clinical presentations include multiple endocrine disturbances, visual deficits, cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea and dyspnea. However, little is known about the occurrence and optimal(More)
