Sonography of the premature brain: intracranial hemorrhage and periventricular leukomalacia
SummarySonography is very important when evaluating the pre-term central nervous system and can help in the diagnosis of certain diseases.
Pathological Anatomy of Intraventricular Haemorrhage in the Preterm Baby
The lesion complex of the preterm infant within which bleeding into the ventricles is a characteristic feature is discussed and the main accepted structural components and evolution are outlined. Expand
AN IMMUNOHISTOCHEMICAL STUDY OF THE GERMINAL LAYER IN THE LATE GESTATION HUMAN FETAL BRAIN
- Biology, Medicine
- Neuropathology and applied neurobiology
It is suggested that the increase in glial fibres may be a significant factor in capillary stabilization, and in the inverse relationship between gestation of the infant and the risk of intracerebral haemorrhage, and the possible structural significance of the tanycyte is also highlighted. Expand
Neurosonography: Germinal Matrix-Related Hemorrhage
The radiologist has long been essential in the diagnosis of diseases that affect the premature neonate, but only recently has significant attention been directed toward imaging of the brain, as a greater percent of premature neonates have begun to survive beyond the immediate perinatal period. Expand
Choroid plexus hemorrhage in premature neonates: recognition by sonography.
- AJNR. American journal of neuroradiology
It is suggested that in very low-birth-weight premature neonates, the choroid plexus may be a more frequent site of intracranial hemorrhage than previously believed. Expand
Pathophysiology of Intracranial Haemorrhage in the Newborn
- Journal of perinatal medicine
The pathophysiology of the major forms of intracranial haemorrhage which occur in the newborn are considered, according to their site rather than on the basis of any prior assumption as to their cause. Expand
Microangiography and vascular permeability of the subependymal matrix in the premature infant.
- The Canadian journal of neurological sciences. Le journal canadien des sciences neurologiques
The microvascular architecture of the subependymal matrix in premature infants was studied with microangiography and benzidine stains and revealed that it is the end zone or the border zone between cerebral arteries and the collection zone of the deep cerebral veins. Expand
