  • Syringomyelia

    Spinal arachnoiditis and spinal syringomyelia are rare but important chronic complications after SAH. Copyright  2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.[] The surgical procedure was as follows: a laminectomy was performed at the level of trauma, and a midline dural opening was made under a microscope.[] Conclusions CSF velocity, heart rate and syrinx diameter affect syrinx fluid velocities, but not the frequency of syrinx fluid oscillation.[] Despite being an effective and safe procedure, cerebrospinal fluid overdrainage might result in serious complications.[] The cervical spine was involved in 57% of the patients, and syringomyelia extended over a median seven vertebral levels.[] There were no cases of shunt blockage or infection.[]

  • Arachnoid Cyst

    Thoracolumbar MRI revealed two spinal intradural cystic lesions at T5-6 and T11 levels, respectively.[] Our surgical procedure for simultaneous bone remodeling and cyst decompression is a fast, simple, and effective treatment option for patients with large Sylvian fissure arachnoid[] AC fluid is not identical to CSF.[] The endoscopic procedure consisted of ventricle-cyst-cisternostomy in three cases and ventricle-cystostomy in two.[] The cysts were identical in location, situated in the left middle cranial fossa, and involved the medial aspect of the temporal lobe.[] OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical and radiographical differences between thoracic idiopathic spinal cord herniation (ISCH) and spinal arachnoid[]

  • Hydrocephalus

    KEYWORDS: Astrocytoma; Hydrocephalus; Intramedullary spinal cord tumor[] Age at first surgical procedure, type of first surgical procedure, and etiology of hydrocephalus were not associated with APC diagnosis. APC recurred in 4 patients.[] The first set showed the lateral and third ventricles for visualization of turbulent CSF dynamics, and the second set showed the lateral ventricular atria for choroid plexus[] Thirteen patients had undergone a previous intraventricular endoscopic procedure.[] Congenital hydrocephalus, most commonly involving aqueduct stenosis, has been linked to genes that regulate brain growth and development.[] KEYWORDS: Hydrocephalus; cerbrospinal fluid overdrainage; shunt complications; ventriculo-peritoneal shunt[]

  • Tarlov Cyst

    KEYWORDS: Caesarean section; Perineural cyst; Spinal anaesthesia; Tarlov cyst[] […] three cases of a sacral perineural cyst, causing sciatic pain, and emphasize the usefulness of CT-guided percutaneous aspiration as an important diagnostic and prognostic procedure[] All of the patients underwent surgical resection. The mean follow-up was 54 months (range 3-160 months).[] Identification of the nerve root involved by the cyst wall, operative indication, operative procedure, and treatment of multiple cysts are important preoperative considerations[] Postoperative lumbar drainage to prevent CSF leak was also not adopted.[] Treatment Tarlov cysts may be drained and shunted to relieve pressure and pain, but relief is often only temporary and fluid build-up in the cysts will recur.[]

  • Arachnoiditis

    The combination of oil myelography and spinal surgery was the probable cause of arachnoiditis in almost all cases.[] Post-procedure adhesive arachnoiditis following obstetric spinal anaesthesia.[] The present surgical procedure may improve clinical outcome in patients with longitudinally extensive spinal adhesive arachnoiditis. Copyright 2011 Elsevier Ltd.[] 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[] 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[] Three patients were treated with a syringo-subarachnoid shunt, and 2 patients were treated with a ventriculoperitoneal shunt.[]

  • 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[] 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[] Opening CSF pressure was borderline high (220 mmH 2 O). All other investigations, including CSF analysis, were normal.[] Bariatric procedures (e.g., gastric bypass) increased very rapidly in incidence since 1998, with nearly 200 such procedures performed on IIH patients in 2002.[] 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[] CONCLUSIONS: EM-navigated ventricular catheter placement in shunting for IIH is a safe and straightforward technique.[]

  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

    Abstract Neurinomas are common space-occupying lesions located in the spinal canal.[] Abstract Tension pneumocephalus is a rare and life threatening complication of intracranial surgical procedures, and requires immediate recognition and surgical intervention[] OBJECTIVES: To evaluate gait characteristics in patients with idiopathic NPH and investigate the effect of the CSF tap test (CSF-TT) on gait.[] RESULTS: From 285 procedures in the reporting period, 90 were excluded, resulting in 195 patients.[] This report highlights that swallowing disturbance may manifest in those with secondary NPH due to corticobulbar tract involvement.[] CONCLUSIONS Patients with iNPH with longer duration of preoperative symptoms may not receive the same short-term benefits of surgical intervention as patients with shorter[]

  • Meningitis

    All the patients with IgG4-related spinal pachymeningitis responded well to glucocorticoid therapy.[] The total visit cost increased with delayed lumbar puncture procedure, intensive care unit stay, and if the etiology was fungi, arbovirus, or bacteria.[] Certain medical conditions There are certain medical conditions, medications, and surgical procedures that put people at increased risk for meningitis.[] Abstract The authors report a case of IgG4-related hypertrophic pachymeningitis that involved cerebral parenchyma. The mass was removed surgically.[] […] than in CSF non-pleocytosis.[] Abstract We report the first known case of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) shunt-associated meningitis caused by Gordonia sputi and review published cases of Gordonia CNS infections[]

  • Neurosurgical Procedure

    Surgical treatment of painful spasticity after spinal cord injury . Spinal Cord 2002; 40 : 161–166. 28.[] We examined annual volumes from 1993 to 2007 for each neurosurgical category for the most common ICD-9-CM procedure code within each category.[] procedure, the possibility of developing a surgical site infection (SSI) is an ever-present risk.[] Microelectrode recording involves the insertion of a very thin electrode to monitor the electrical activity of neurons (nerve cells).[] HSV-1 in CSF.[] Forty-seven patients underwent ventriculoperitoneal shunt after developing symptomatic hydrocephalus. The minimum weight required for shunt implantation was 1,500 g.[]

  • Obstructive Hydrocephalus

    […] may occur with a reported incidence of 3.5% in elective spinal surgery. [13] Surgeons should recognize that spinal surgery at CVJ has the potential risk of this devastating[] BACKGROUND: The development of various neuroendoscopic surgical instruments has offered more options for endoscopic procedures in the treatment of intraventricular tumors.[] Operative videos were reassessed, and surgical nuances reconsidered. RESULTS: ETV was accomplished in all but three cases.[] Communicating hydrocephalus arises from meningeal arachnoid granulation involvement.[] Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pathway studies have revealed that the CSF secreted from the choroid plexus of the ventricles after egressing from the fourth ventricle reaches the[] KEYWORDS: Hydrocephalus; cerbrospinal fluid overdrainage; shunt complications; ventriculo-peritoneal shunt[]
