Article
In two cases of hemangioma of the D7 and L1 vertebral bodies intraoperative posterior filling of the angioma was described. The technique allowed a conveniently bloodless operation, which resulted in stabilization. No other stabilization was necessary. Six months after the procedure an increase of vertebral body density was seen radiologically.
Article
A large intracranial tumor that caused macrocrania leading to dystocia was demonstrated by prenatal ultrasound examination. After birth, computerized tomography (CT) confirmed the presence of a giant supratentorial tumor with a large cyst. When the infant was 20 days old, the tumor was radically extirpated. Neuropathological examination revealed an...
Chapter
The coagulation and tumor-shrinking properties of the Nd:YAG laser make it a useful tool in the treatment of vascular intracranial tumors, in particular meningiomas. The resection of many tumors, such as base of skull meningiomas, inevitably involves limited access, making precision work with the hand-held laser difficult.
Article
The magnetic resonance findings in a 48-year-old woman with a calcified, herniated thoracic intervertebral disk at the T5-T6 level are reported. This patient had an 18 year history of spinal cord symptoms and signs, previously thought to be caused by multiple sclerosis (MS). Magnetic resonance was obtained for further evaluation of MS.
Article
A new method, intraoperative retrograde embolization with a methyl methacrylate polymer injected into a vertebral hemangioma, is described. This method achieves complete intraoperative hemostasis and postoperative stabilization. No further stabilization procedures and radiation therapy are necessary. Preoperative selective angiography with emboliza...
Article
Recent research into the natural course of neurofibromatosis has revealed an outstandingly high proportion of central nervous system malignancies as well as cancers of various other organs. Due to the lack of ionizing radiation, the extraordinary reconstruction in the frontal and parasaggital planes as well as the diagnosis of intracanalicular acou...
Article
Full-text available
In contrast to the numerous publications on supratentorially located tuberculomas, reports on infratentorial tuberculomas, demonstrated by computed tomography, are relatively few in number. Although nowadays precise localization has become possible via computed tomography, a tuberculoma cannot be identified unequivocally by computed tomography. The...
Article
Two cases of osteoclastoma of the petrous bone are presented that were clinically taken for tumors of the glomus jugulare. The petrous bone is a very uncommon location for such tumors, and only six cases have been reported in the English literature. The histopathological features as well as the clinical course are described, and the literature is c...
Article
Im Gegensatz zu den zahlreich erschienenen Publikationen supratentoriell gelegener Tuberkulome (1-4, 6-15, 18) liegen Berichte bezüglich infratentoriell gelegener, computertomographisch nachgewiesener Tuberkulome in relativ geringer Anzahl vor (5). Obwohl computertomographisch heutzutage ohne Schwierigkeit die genaue Lokalisation möglich geworden i...

The coagulation and tumour-shrinking properties of the Nd-YAG laser make it a useful tool in the treatment of vascular intracranial tumours, in particular meningiomas. The resection of many tumours such as base-of-skull meningiomas inevitably involves limited access, making precision work with the hand-held laser difficult. This paper presents the...
Article
Report of two cases of lipofibromatous hamartoma of the median nerve in which the complete operative removal allowed a detailed neuropathologic examination. The nosologic and etiologic classification of this hamartomatous neuropathy and its possible relation to neurofibromatosis and hypertrophic neuritis are discussed.
Article
Es wird ber zwei Flle von lipofibromatsem Hamartom des Nervus medianus berichtet, bei denen die vollstndige operative Entfernung eine detaillierte neuropathologische Untersuchung ermglichte. Die Diskussion befat sich mit der nosologischen und tiologischen Klassifizierung dieser hamartomatsen Neuropathie und deren mglicher Beziehung zur Neurofibroma...
Article
Two cases, each with two meningiomas are reported. Their peculiarity consists in the fact that the different tumours developed at different times and in widely separated locations in the supratentorial and spinal regions. The possibility of dissemination via the cerebrospinal fluid and of a multifocal origin is discussed, as well as the grade of ma...
Article
Es werden zwei Patientinnen mit je zwei Meningiomen beschrieben, deren Besonderheiten in der zweizeitigen Entstehung und ihrer weit auseinanderliegenden Lokalisation im supratentoriellen und spinalen Raum liegen. Die Möglichkeiten einer Liquordisseminierung, einer multifokalen Entstehung und dem Malignitätsgrad werden beschrieben.
Chapter
The first report on the results of treatment of brain tumours in infants and children. was published by Starr in 1889 (257 cases) [8, 10, 12, 17]. In contrast to adults, brain tumours in the paediatric age group tend to occur along the central neural axis and the embryonic closure line in the midline, which complicated the effects of treatment [6,...
Chapter
Since HAWKIN and REWELL (2) in 1946 called attention to the role of small angiomatous malformations in the production of fatal intracerebral hemorrhage and RUSSELL (12) in 1954 described the clinically “cryptic” nature for this entity, many investigations have been done on analysis of the clinical manifestation, improvement of neuroradiological tec...
Chapter
The value of the computerized tomography (CT) in recognizing epidural hematomas is unquestionable. The same is true for epidural hematomas the development of which is delayed, since their symptomatology may be atypical (3, 5). On the other hand, the computerized tomography reveals sometimes beneath a fracture of the skull, an epidural accumulation...
Chapter
Despite the introduction of surgical procedures into the treatment of brain abscess by MacEWEN in 1893, the application of antimicrobial agents by JOOMA in 1951 and the advance in the development of neuro-radiological techniques, brain abscess has still continued to be a challenging lesion, which carries a distressingly high mortality rate ranging...
