An extreme lateral transcondylar or extreme lateral transfacetal surgical approach was used to treat 22 patients with complex lesions over a 22-month period. The lesions included basilar invagination with vertebral artery pathology, giant aneurysm or arteriovenous fistula of the vertebral artery, me Human taeniasis as well as porcine and human cysticercosis--caused by the pork tapeworm Taenia solium--are ancient diseases. The fact that pigs were considered impure in the ancient Greece and that the Koran prohibited the consumption of pork, were likely related to the knowledge that cysticercosis Estimated worldwide mortality of COVID-19 is about 0.3/1000 persons, 76 but the data of western countries tend to have higher numbers. 77 In Italy mortality of COVID-19 is 1.5/1000, with a case fatality ratio of 3.5% and an average intensive care unit (ICU) admission rate of 21.4%. 77, 78 Currently, there are limited data and information about.
SARS-CoV-2 is characterized by a multiorgan tropism including the kidneys. Recent autopsy series indicated that SARS-CoV-2 can infect both tubular and glomerular cells. Whereas tubular cell infiltration may contribute to acute kidney injury, data on a potential clinical correlative to glomerular affection is rare. We describe the first case of nephrotic syndrome in the context of COVID-19 in a. Sphenoorbital meningiomas are a distinct category of tumors complicated by potentially extensive hyperostosis of the skull base. Successful resection requires extensive intra- and extradural surgery, necessitating drilling of the optic canal and an orbital osteotomy within anatomical limitations. Th Background: Parkinson's disease (PD) is characterized by reduced flexibility, conceptualization, and visuo-spatial abilities. Although these are essential to creativity, case studies show emergence of creativity during PD. Knowledge about the role of dopamine in creativity so far only stems from a few case reports. We aim at demonstrating that creativity can be induced by dopaminergic.

Symptomatic trigeminal nerve compression by vertebrobasilar dolichoectasia (VBD) is rare, ranging from 2 to 7.7% of cases in past trigeminal neuralgia (TN) series .When medical therapy for VBD-associated TN has failed, surgical options such as trigeminal rhizotomy, percutaneous thermocoagulation, microvascular decompression (MVD), and gamma knife radiosurgery can be considered  The experience of the FOR-DMD study is not unique. Whether in common or rare disease, there have been a number of similar experiences published by investigators working on multi-centre, publically funded clinical trials [5,6,7,8, 10, 11].A lack of regulatory harmonisation inside the EU and between the EU and USA has been reported by many as having the most negative impact in these types of. Background Gamma Knife stereotactic radiosurgery (GKSRS) is an outpatient radiation therapy procedure in which a highly focused dose of radiation is delivered in a single fraction. It is used to treat a variety of well-demarcated intracranial lesions, including brain tumors. This study aims to explore patients' perspectives of the GKSRS process and the various stages involved. Methods. During the past three months since the first case of SARS-CoV-2 was reported in India on 29 January 2020, blood centres have adopted a number of strategies to tide over this crisis. The purpose of the present study is to share our experiences and the effect of various policies adopted by our blood centre from time to time and the lessons.

Debilitating facial pain can seriously affect an individual's daily living. Given that the pathophysiology behind neuropathic and myofascial pain is not fully understood, when chronic facial pain goes undiagnosed, it has been proposed that one of the two is the likely cause. Since their discovery, glossopharyngeal neuralgia (GN) and Eagle's syndrome have been considered mostly conditions. Background and purpose To investigate the efficacy of endovascular treatment (EVT) for neurovascular conflicts (NVCs) in the cerebellopontine angle (CPA) caused by intracranial aneurysms (IAs) and intracranial arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), including trigeminal neuralgia, hemifacial spasm, and glossopharyngeal neuralgia. Materials and methods From January 2010 to January 2014, 14. In no case was the tunica muscularis invaded by tumor. Thus, meningiomas of the cavernous sinus do infiltrate the internal carotid artery and, in order to completely resect these lesions and effect a surgical cure, it may be necessary to sacrifice the carotid artery with or without reconstruction

Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) are severe nervous system diseases characterized by the degeneration of lower motor neurons. They share a number of additional pathological, cellular, and genetic parallels suggesting that mechanistic and clinical insights into one disorder may have value for the other. While there are currently no clinical ALS gene. For example, within a mathematics lesson, the teacher can give an addition exercise where the students have to give the answer by jumping the correct number of times.

. Its clinical diagnosis can be difficult to distinguish from other pituitary lesions. This pathology is characterised by vague symptoms of headaches, generalised tiredness and hypopituitarism manifestations. A history of recent meningitis, paranasal sinusitis or head surgery can be a suggestive of the source of infection. A 20-year-old man was. Introduction Hydrocephalus is variously associated to syndromic craniosynostosis (CS), while it is randomly encountered in monosutural CS. Pathogenesis is still debated and reliable criteria for the diagnosis of overt hydrocephalus are lacking. Additionally, optimal treatment is controversial since it should balance the need to relieve intracranial hypertension and the risk of recurrence. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a devastating neurodegenerative motor neuron disease that results in progressive loss of bulbar and limb function. In this Review, Hardiman et al. provide an. Spontaneous clinical recovery and compensatory mechanisms may occur after CNS injury associated with different neurological conditions, not only following an acute insult, as in the case of stroke (Ward, 2006, Price and Crinion, 2005), but also in chronic and degenerative conditions (Masdeu et al., 2005, Appel-Cresswell et al., 2010) The last case report on the use of chemotherapy and radiotherapy dates from 2005 and 2008, respectively (Table 1).

成熟した未成年者. Cardwell v. Bechtol. 出典 : 724 S.W.2d 739 (Tennesse, USA, 1987) Supreme Court of Tennessee Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is one of the most common and debilitating complications of cancer treatment. Due to a lack of effective management options for patients with CIPN, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) sponsored a series of trials aimed at both prevention and treatment. A total of 15 such studies were approved, evaluating use of various neuro-modulatory agents. Moreover, the number of case series with VA-involved HFS is limited and shows clinical results similar to the outcomes of non-VA-involved HFS, which are in contrast with previous studies 14,16,17.
