BACKGROUND: Neurosurgical application of indocyanine green (ICG) videography prior to performing a dural opening has been reported as transdural ICG videography and used during surgery of meningiomas associated with venous sinuses, as well as cranial and spinal arteriovenous malformations. However, its use for a superficial temporal artery to middle cerebral artery (STA-MCA) bypass has not been reported. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of medical records of patients who underwent a transdural ICG videography technique during STA-MCA bypass procedures performed between January 2012 and March 2015...

BACKGROUND: Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is a common indication for undergoing neurosurgery, but the outcome may remain limited despite timely surgical treatment. The factors potentially associated with the functional outcome have not been sufficiently investigated. We set out to identify independent predictors associated with the functional outcome after surgical treatment of CSDH, avoiding arbitrary classifications and thresholds or subjective imaging assessment. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 197 consecutive surgical cases of CSDH...

Metastasis to the breast from an extra-mammary malignancy has been documented in literature, however cervical cancer metastasis to the breast is very rare. Thirty-eight cases of metastatic deposit to the breast from cervical cancer have been reported in literature. Though most patients present with a breast lump, it is very difficult to clinically distinguish a primary breast malignancy from a metastatic deposit. Histopathology of the tissue, aided with immune-histochemical staining pattern provides a definitive diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: In emergency medicine for determining the intracranial injury (ICI) in children with head trauma, usually brain CT scan is performed. Since brain CT scan, especially in children, has some disadvantages, it is better to find a procedure which could help to choose only the children with real head trauma injury for brain CT scan. AIMS: The aim of this study is to find such procedure. This study was descriptive, analytic and non-interventional. METHODS: We reviewed the archived files of children with head trauma injuries referred to the emergency department of Imam Hossein Hospital within two years...

BACKGROUND: Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is one of the most common neurosurgical conditions. It is mostly a disease of elderly population with very little data about the young patients. There is also the debate regarding treatment strategies. We decided to determine the overall efficacy of the single burr-hole craniostomy (SBHC) for unilateral CSDH in young adults <40 years. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective study of young patients undergoing SBHC for unilateral CSDH between January 2013 and June 2016 at our institution...

AIM: Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is typically in elderly and rarely in young people. To prevent complications and re-bleeding after surgical treatment of CSDH it is important to assess the risk factors as coagulation disorders especially in young patients (below 65 years) with no history of head trauma, alcohol abuse or anticoagulant therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This study consists of 16 patients (12 males, 4 females) with age ranging from 27 to 59 years (median 48,25 years) operated for CSDH...

Acute intracranial subdural hematoma (ASDH) is commonly associated with a grave prognosis citing a high incidence of morbidity and mortality. The parameters to decide on surgical evacuation of the hematoma are sometimes controversial. In this study, we theorized that the ratio between maximal hematoma thickness and midline shift would be varied by associated intrinsic brain pathology emanating from the trauma and would thus objectively evaluates the prognosis in ASDH. The records of patients diagnosed with ASDH who were submitted to surgical evacuation through a craniotomy were revised...

Midline discharges, lateralized periodic discharges, and seizures have been described with ipsilateral lesions that result in midline shift (MLS). Periodic discharges and seizures arising contralateral to a known lesion have not previously been described as a sign of MLS. We present four patients with focal brain lesions, resulting in MLS and epileptiform discharges arising from the contralateral hemisphere. Patient 1 underwent a right anterior temporal lobectomy. On postoperative day 2, computed tomography demonstrated a right to left MLS of 12 mm, and EEG was remarkable for left temporal nonconvulsive status epilepticus...

In recent years, instances of neurotrauma in the elderly have been increasing. This article addresses the clinical characteristics, management strategy, and outcome in elderly patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Falls to the ground either from standing or from heights are the most common causes of TBI in the elderly, since both motor and physiological functions are degraded in the elderly. Subdural, contusional and intracerebral hematomas are more common in the elderly than the young as the acute traumatic intracranial lesion...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the frequency of emergency diseases that were detected unexpectedly using FDG-PET/CT. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Interpretation reports for 11,663 FDG-PET/CT studies in our hospital were retrospectively reviewed. Patients with major emergency diseases were extracted according to the following exclusion criteria: (1) relevant findings had been recognized prior to the PET/CT; (2) an intervention or operation that may have been relevant to the present findings was performed within 1 month prior to the PET/CT; and (3) the clinical course could not be investigated sufficiently (e...

Crowned dens syndrome (CDS) is a rare disease which presents with neck pain and rigidity. A 74-year-old man with right chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) underwent hematoma drainage. After the operation, he complained of neck pain and laboratory test revealed elevation of C-reactive protein (CRP) and white blood cell (WBC). Suspecting localized infection, wound irrigation was performed. Neck pain relieved after irrigation, but we could not find the source of infection. CDS was diagnosed by computed tomography (CT)...

Hemophilia is an X-linked hemorrhagic disease due to coagulation factor VIII or IX deficiency with approximately 5-10% incidence of central nervous system bleeding. We present an intriguing case of a refractory subacute subdural hematoma (SDH) controlled with endovascular embolization in a hemophilic patient. A 5-year-old severe hemophilic A boy presented with a life threatening left parietal subcortical hemorrhage, for which he underwent craniotomy and evacuation of the hematoma. Recurrent hemorrhage necessitated a repeat craniotomy...

Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is fundamentally treatable through surgery, although it recurs in some cases. We have observed several cases of spontaneous resolution of CSDH outer membranes, including in trabecular CSDH, after trepanation surgery. In this study, we examined the expression of molecules involved in caspase signaling in CSDH outer membranes. Eight patients whose outer membranes were successfully obtained during trepanation surgery were included in this study. The expression of Fas; Fas-associated death domain (FADD); tumor necrosis factor receptor type 1-associated death domain (TRADD); receptor-interacting protein (RIP); caspases 3, 7, 8 and 9; poly-(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP); DNA fragmentation factor 45 (DFF45) and β-actin was examined by Western blot analysis...

BACKGROUND: Non traumatic subdural hematomas are rare, especially those associated with intracranial meningiomas. Among the most common meningiomas associated with spontaneous bleeding are angioblastic and malignant meningioma variants. The pathophysiological mechanisms of this association are not yet fully understood. The association of chronic subdural hematoma with microcystic meningioma histological subtype has not yet been described in the literature. CASE REPORT: The authors present a case report of a patient with a spontaneous non traumatic chronic subdural hematoma associated with a microcystic subtype grade I meningioma of the parietal convexity...

BACKGROUND: The high recurrent rate of chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) has consistently confused the neurosurgeons, and the role of atorvastatin in the management of CSDH has remained unclear over past decade, and atorvastatin seems to be a safe and cost-effective treatment to CSDH. Therefore, it is necessary to conduct a systematic review to discuss the effect of atorvastatin in CSDH. METHOD: We searched the PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, and the China Biology Medicine disc, up to March 2017, for published studies on the effects of atorvastatin in the management of CSDH, and reviewers performed a brief qualitative descriptive analysis of atorvastatin's efficacy in the management of CSDH...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to evaluate the association between misdiagnosis of spontaneous intracranial hypotension (SIH) and subdural hematoma development. BACKGROUND: Although SIH is more prevalent than expected and causes potentially life-threatening complications including subdural hematoma (SDH), the association between misdiagnosis of SIH and SDH development is not yet evaluated. METHODS: Retrospective observational study was conducted between January 1, 2005, and December 31, 2014...

As the world population becomes progressively older, the overall incidence of chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is increasing. Peak age of onset for CSDH has also increased, and recently the 80-year-old level has a peak. Many patients with CSDH have had prior treatment with anticoagulants and antiplatelet drugs, which have an accompanying risk of CSDH. In elderly patients with CSDH, symptoms of cognitive change (memory disturbance, urinary incontinence, and decreased activity) and disturbance of consciousness at admission were more frequent compared to younger patients with CSDH...

INTRODUCTION: Traumatic spinal subdural hematoma involving the retroclival region and upper cervical spine is a rare pathology. To our knowledge, there have only been two prior cases in an adult trauma patient. We describe a patient with pre-existing Chiari 1 malformation, who recently sustained a unilateral Type 1 OCF (occipital condyle fracture) with associated disruption of the tectorial membrane and transverse ligament, that returned with a retroclival subdural hematoma extending down to C7, causing spinal cord compression and symptomatic obstructive hydrocephalus...
