The aneurysm is a complex phenomenon which is affected by different factors, such as the biological diseases and the blood flow parameters. The wall shear stress and pressure are the main factors in the establishment and growth of cerebral aneurysm. The circle of Willis is a prevalent location for aneurysm. On the other hand, the anomalies of circl...
Conference Paper
Traumatic brain injury guidelines of two well-known sources were selected for adaptation in Iran.

Background. In order to reduce the mortality risk of aneurysm rupture, a timely diagnosis and treatment are vital. There are different reasons for aneurysm, such as hypertension, arteriosclerosis, and heredity. An efficient and cost-effective method to study the generation, development, and rupture of aneurysm and also analysis of treatment methods...
Article
This is an analysis of papers published by Iranian neurosurgeons while working in Iran until the year 2010. We collected bibliometric data and assigned a level of evidence (LOE) for each paper and compared neurosurgical research productivity across three time periods (before 1990, between 1991 and 2000, and after 2000). For further illustration, th...

There appear to be some differences between the patterns of brain tumor epidemiology in Iran and western countries. Thus, the prevalence of glioma was earlier estimated to be about 45% of all brain tumors, somewhat low in comparison to the western reports at that time, but almost the same as in Southeast Asian countries. A similar low figure was al...
