  • Arachnoiditis

    The combination of oil myelography and spinal surgery was the probable cause of arachnoiditis in almost all cases.[doi.org] Post-procedure adhesive arachnoiditis following obstetric spinal anaesthesia.[ijaweb.org] The present surgical procedure may improve clinical outcome in patients with longitudinally extensive spinal adhesive arachnoiditis. Copyright 2011 Elsevier Ltd.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Stroke as a complication of NCC occurs in a very small percentage of cases, mostly involving small perforating vessels while major intracranial vessel involvement is extremely[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] As syringomyelia is associated with abnormalities of the central nervous system that obstruct cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow, it is thought that changes in CSF dynamics play[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Three patients were treated with a syringo-subarachnoid shunt, and 2 patients were treated with a ventriculoperitoneal shunt.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension

    From their analysis, they report on 3 adolescent patients who underwent uncomplicated segmental spinal instrumentation for pediatric spinal deformity correction and subsequently[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] DVSS was performed as the first procedure for medically refractory IIH in 81.4% of patients, whereas 18.6% of patients included had previously had a surgical procedure (ventriculoperitoneal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Opening CSF pressure was borderline high (220 mmH 2 O). All other investigations, including CSF analysis, were normal.[doi.org] Bariatric procedures (e.g., gastric bypass) increased very rapidly in incidence since 1998, with nearly 200 such procedures performed on IIH patients in 2002.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After the diagnosis has been clearly established using lumbar puncture and imaging techniques, the neurologist is involved in helping to lower the intracranial pressure, control[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CONCLUSIONS: EM-navigated ventricular catheter placement in shunting for IIH is a safe and straightforward technique.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
