The composer Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy and his sister, Fanny Hensel, both died in 1847 of intracerebral hemorrhage. Also their father and grandfather had died of cerebral strokes. Their cases show the dramatic progress of an arteriovenous malformation in the nineteenth century, but also the development of new romantic styles in the history of western music. Since the late nineteenth and the early twentieth century, neurology and neurosurgery had developed as highly specialized medical subjects. Today, neurosurgery is a highly developed medical subject, and the neurosurgeon uses high-tech equipment for neurosurgical procedures and intensive care...

The aim of this study is to quantitatively evaluate the behavior of CNS cavernous malformations (CCMs) using a dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCEMRI) technique sensitive for slow transfer rates of gadolinium. The prospective study was approved by the institutional review board and was HIPPA compliant. Written informed consent was obtained from 14 subjects with familial CCMs (4 men and 10 women, ages 22-76 years, mean 48.1 years). Following routine anatomic MRI of the brain, DCEMRI was performed for six slices, using T1 mapping with partial inversion recovery (TAPIR) to calculate T1 values, following administration of 0...

We report an unusual case of cerebral aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrage (SAH) with Fabry's disease. A 42-year-old woman presented with aneurysmal SAH originated from a saccular aneurysm of the right posterior communicating artery. The patient was treated by an endovascular coil embolization of aneurysm. Postoperatively the patient recovered favorably without any neurological deficit. During her admission, the patient had a sign of proteinuria in urine analysis. The pathologic findings of kidney needle biopsy implied nephrosialidosis (mucolipidosis of lysosomal stroage disease), which is consistent with a Fabry's disease...

INTRODUCTION: Anti-TNF alpha treatments are increasingly prescribed in various rheumatological or gastroenterological inflammatory diseases. Several adverse events, including neurological episodes have been reported in the literature. Relation to treatment is a major concern and guidelines for management of those patients are not available. The aim of our study is to collect and analyze neurological adverse events occurring during anti-TNF alpha therapy, and to propose guidelines for diagnosis of demyelinating-induced diseases...

Iatrogenic gas embolism is a rare but serious problem that has been documented in almost all medical specialties including gynecology. We present a 49-year-old woman undergoing operative hysteroscopy and myomectomy, who sustained sudden hypotension and decrease in the end-tidal carbon dioxid levels during the procedure. Systemic gas embolism was confirmed by echocardiographic evidence of bubbles in both right and left cardiac cavities and a rise of troponin. Hyperbaric oxygen was rapidly administered in addition to maintenance of vital functions and anti-thrombotic prevention with calciparin...

Treatment of intracranial tumoral lesions is related to its correct histological diagnostic. We present a retrospective analysis of 32 patients submitted to 36 cerebral biopsies using neuronavigation and 44 patients using frame-based stereotaxy. Mean age was 46.6 and 49.3 years old respectively. Sex distribution in both groups was 50% for each. Most of lesions were lobar in both groups. Diagnostic yielding was 91.7% and 83.4%, respectively (p=0.26). We found in the postoperative CT scans intracranial hemorrhages in 13...

The relationships between the brain and arterial hypertension are strong. The brain, through the hypothalamus, can quickly adapt the blood pressure level to maintain the cerebral blood flow. An acute increase in blood pressure, if it overtakes the autoregulatory capacities, needs an urgent intervention to decrease neurological problems such as encephalopathy. In chronic situations, arterial hypertension is a frequent cause of stroke, either ischemic or hemorragic, both in patients free and those who have already suffered from brain damage...

We sought to define the influence of ageing in clinical, cognitive, and quality-of-life outcomes after subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation (STN-DBS) in Parkinson's disease (PD). We performed motor assessment (UPDRS), mood tests, cognitive, and quality of life evaluation (PDQ-39) on PD patients before surgery, and 12 and 24 months after, and we recorded adverse events. The variations of these parameters after surgery were correlated with age using regression statistical tests. Cerebral bleeding risk was evaluated by a nonparametric test...

Stroke patients are at very high risk of recurrent vascular events. Antiplatelet agents (AAP) substantially decrease this risk but still 1 over 5 patients will have an other vascular event. Recent studies didn't show any benefit of AAP association (aspirin, clopidogrel) but other studies targetting higher risk patients are needed. Studies with new AAP are ongoing. Beside vascular risk reduction, other antithrombotic agents are used as thrombolytics in the acute phase of stroke. The rt-PA (recombinant tissue plasminogen activator) administered in the first 3 hours dissolves the clot, preventing death and handicap due to ischemic brain lesion...

Cerebral aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations (AVM) are a common cause of stroke and cerebral hemorrage. Both are often discovered when they rupture, causing subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). SAH-induced vasospasm is mediated by enhanced vasoconstriction due to endothelin-1 (ET-1). We investigated whether endothelial cells (ECs) obtained from aneurysm and AVM express phenotypic and genotypic alterations contributing to the development of vasospasm after SAH. We isolated ECs from human AVM and aneurysm and then confirmed their EC origin by polymerase chain reaction and immunocytochemistry with endothelial markers...

An effect of nitrogen oxide donator Nebilet and inhibitor of NO-synthase L-Name in concentration 10(-4) and 10(-5) on some biochemical indices in vitro has been studied. It was established that an incubation of tissues with nitrogen oxide donator results in an increase of nitrits' level, some intensification of LPO and activation of antioxidant defense enzymes, especially in rats with SAH. On the contrary, an incubation of cerebral homogenate with inhibitor of NO-synthase L-NAME resulted in considerable lowering of nitrits' level, significant activation of LPO...

Rendu-Osler disease or hereditary hemorragic telangiectasia is a group of autosomal dominant diseases characterized by angiodysplasic lesions in the skin, mucous membranes and viscera with risks of recurrent bleedings. Neurological complications have been described in 10-30% of these patients, most often hemorrhagic or septic. More exceptionally, ischemic strokes occur in these patients, particularly if they have pulmonary arteriovenous malformations. We report the observation of a 25 year old man who developed a latero-protuberantial stroke...

INTRODUCTION: Vertebral artery (VA) dissections can involve both the extracranial and intracranial portions of the VA. Intradural extension explains the occurrence of subarachnoid hemorrage (SAH). We have studied the rate of this extension, the risk of associated SAH and the therapeutic repercussions at the acute stage. METHODS: From 1985 to 2001, 42 patients with a recent extracranial VA dissection were admitted to our department of neurology. When the diagnosis of extracranial VA dissection (involving the first, second or third segment of the VA) was established, we looked for an ipsilateral intracranial extension (involving the fourth segment of the VA and/or the basilar artery)...

Precocious admission to specifically "dedicated" wards proved to improve reduction of mortality and degree of residual disability in patients with stroke, even if their inhomogeneous distribution gets most patients admitted to wards of Internal Medicine. We purposed to evaluate the importance of this problem, to check adhesion to the national guidelines and to show the main problems in management of patients with stroke in the Operative Unit of Internal Medicine, Vascular and Metabolic Diseases of the IRCCS S...

Brain metastases from hepatocarcinoma are exceptional and only a few cases have been reported in the literature, mainly from Far-Eastern countries. Clinical diagnosis in asymptomatic patients with preserved liver function is difficult and usually late. In some cases, cerebral metastasis is the initial manifestation of HCC and patients may develop intracerebral hemorrage and have a stroke-like presentation. We report on the first Italian case of cerebral metastases from multifocal hepatocellular carcinoma in an asymptomatic HbsAg negative patient with unknown HCV related chronic hepatitis and no evidence of liver cirrhosis...
