Article
C9orf72 repeat expansions are rarely associated with primary progressive aphasias (PPA). In-depth characterization of the linguistic deficits, and the underlying patterns of grey-matter atrophy in PPA associated with the C9orf72 expansions (PPA-C9orf72) are currently lacking. In this study, we comprehensively analyzed a unique series of 16 patients...

Article
Il termine idrocefalo indica una situazione di eccesso di liquido cerebrospinale (LCS) nei ventricoli cerebrali, diversa rispetto alla dilatazione passiva dei ventricoli. Dietro alla sua apparente semplicità, questo termine racchiude delle entità molto eterogenee. Idrocefali molto diversi possono, così, essere distinti in base all’età dei pazienti...

Object: It was initially considered safe for flow-diverting stents to cover the ostia of branching vessels during endovascular procedures for the treatment of intracranial aneurysms. As more recent evidence suggests, however, their use is not always free of ischemic concerns in terms of covered arterial ostia. The authors sought to determine the f...

Background and purpose: Flow-diverting stents can be used to treat intracranial aneurysms that are not amenable to treatment with coils. We analyzed ophthalmic consequences due to coverage of the origin of the ophthalmic artery by flow-diverting stents for the treatment of internal carotid artery aneurysms. Materials and methods: From April 2009...

Cavernous hemangioma is the most frequent benign tumor of the orbit. The clinical presentation is that of a slowly progressive intra-orbital mass with variable degree of exophthalmos. CT typically demonstrates the presence of a well defined oval or rounded shaped mass but MRI provides superior evaluation of the orbit. The tumor is intra-conal in 80...

The MRI is often the initial exploration proposed to a patient presenting a confusion of memory. This examination has for purpose first to eliminate surgical differential diagnoses, such as a chronic hydrocephalus of the adult. It can then help in the differential diagnosis between the various insane syndromes, like Alzheimer's disease.

Two cases of massive erosive skull base sphenoid mucocele are reported. Even if intra-sphenoid mucoceles are an ENT pathology, when extensive they become of neurosurgical interest. An endoscopic minimally invasive procedure was performed in both cases with an excellent outcome. Patient 1 presented with several years of retro-orbital bilateral pain...

Article
Identification of wooden intraorbital foreign bodies (WIOFB) is crucial for avoiding severe orbital infection. Despite careful clinical examination, WIOFB are often not recognised. We report the CT findings in chronically retained WIOFB. When not initially diagnosed, WIOFB create a granulomatous inflammatory foreign-body reaction. CT demonstrates t...

The purpose of this paper is to describe the modifications in the radiologic approach to female infertility. The role of hysterosalpingography (HSG) has evolved from being the only source of information about the uterus to a more minor role, after ultrasound, that essentially deals with the morphology of the fallopian tubes. But if its diagnostic y...

MRI assessment of pelvic floor dysfunction is still fairly recent. It is a fast expanding field, owing to its safety and simplicity when compared to other imaging modalities. The possibility of direct dynamic imaging is a decisive input, and it can be coupled to a clinical examination at the magnet. The most widely used sequences are T2 weighted fa...

The anatomy of the retromalleolar fibular groove is presented, based on an anthropometric and computed tomography (CT) scan study of twenty samples of fibulae. Three types of morphological variations were found: concave, flat and convex (the concave-shaped groove was most predominant with a frequency of 70%). The mean width of the malleolar groove...

Surgical correction of the postenucleation socket syndrome (PESS) is challenging. Various biomaterials are used for reconstruction of the anophthalmic orbit, often with unsatisfactory long-term results. Implants have been placed between the periorbital and the orbital floor. The authors describe a new material composed of hydroxyapatite tricalcium...

Neuroimaging is of paramount importance in the evaluation and management of cerebral vasospasm. Arteriographic demonstration of concentric arterial constriction between 4 and 12 days after subarachnoid hemorrhage is the definition of vasospasm. Assessment of angiographic vasospasm is subjective. Vasospasm must be differentiated from hypoplasia, ath...
