Contribution of extracranial lymphatics and arachnoid villi to the clearance of a CSF tracer in the rat. (1/145)

The objective of this study was to determine the relative roles of arachnoid villi and cervical lymphatics in the clearance of a cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) tracer in rats. 125I-labeled human serum albumin (125I-HSA; 100 micrograms) was injected into one lateral ventricle, and an Evans blue dye-rat protein complex was injected intravenously. Arterial blood was sampled for 3 h. Immediately after this, multiple cervical vessels were ligated in the same animals, and plasma recoveries were monitored for a further 3 h after the intracerebroventricular injection of 100 micrograms 131I-HSA. Tracer recovery in plasma at 3 h averaged (%injected dose) 0.697 +/- 0.042 before lymphatic ligation and dropped significantly to 0.357 +/- 0. 060 after ligation. Estimates of the rate constant associated with the transport of the CSF tracer to plasma were also significantly lower after obstruction of cervical lymphatics (from 0.584 +/- 0. 072/h to 0.217 +/- 0.056/h). No significant changes were observed in sham-operated animals. Assuming that the movement of the CSF tracer to plasma in lymph-ligated animals was a result of arachnoid villi clearance, we conclude that arachnoid villi and extracranial lymphatic pathways contributed equally to the clearance of the CSF tracer from the cranial vault.  (+info)

MR of CNS sarcoidosis: correlation of imaging features to clinical symptoms and response to treatment. (2/145)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Sarcoidosis is an idiopathic systemic granulomatous disease, recognized in a patient when clinical and radiologic findings are confirmed by histopathologic analysis. The objective was to identify a relationship between MR imaging and clinical findings in CNS sarcoidosis. METHODS: The clinical charts of 461 patients with biopsy-proved sarcoidosis were reviewed retrospectively. Criteria for including patients in the study included those with symptoms referable to the CNS, excluding those with another explanation for their symptoms, those with headaches or other subjective complaints without accompanying objective findings, and those with peripheral neuropathy other than cranial nerve involvement or myopathy without CNS manifestations. Thirty-four of 38 patients whose conditions met the criteria for CNS sarcoidosis underwent a total of 82 MR examinations. The positive imaging findings were divided into categories as follows: pachymeningeal, leptomeningeal, nonenhancing brain parenchymal, enhancing brain parenchymal, cranial nerve, and spinal cord and nerve root involvement. Treatment response, clinical symptomatology, and any available histopathologic studies were analyzed with respect to imaging manifestations in each of the categories. RESULTS: Eighty-two percent of the patients with sarcoidosis with neurologic symptoms referable to the CNS had findings revealed by MR imaging. However, eight (40%) of 20 cranial nerve deficits seen at clinical examination of 13 patients were not seen at contrast-enhanced MR imaging, and 50% of the patients with symptoms referable to the pituitary axis had no abnormal findings on routine contrast-enhanced MR images. In contradistinction, 44% of 18 cranial nerves in nine patients with MR evidence of involvement had no symptoms referable to the involved cranial nerve. Clinical and radiologic deterioration occurred more commonly with leptomeningeal and enhancing brain parenchymal lesions. CONCLUSION: MR imaging can be used to confirm clinical suspicion and to show subclinical disease and the response of pathologic lesions to treatment.  (+info)

Increase of collagen synthesis and deposition in the arachnoid and the dura following subarachnoid hemorrhage in the rat. (3/145)

Arachnoidal fibrosis following subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) has been suggested to play a pathogenic role in the development of late post-hemorrhagic hydrocephalus in humans. The purpose of this study was to investigate the rate of collagen synthesis in the arachnoid and the dura in the rat under normal conditions and to study the time schedule and the localization of the increased collagen synthesis following an experimental SAH. We found that the activity of prolyl 4-hydroxylase, a key enzyme in collagen synthesis, was 3-fold higher in the dura than that in the arachnoid and was similar to the activity in the skin. We then induced SAH in rats by injecting autologous arterial blood into cisterna magna. After SAH, we observed an increase in prolyl 4-hydroxylase activity of the arachnoid and the dura at 1 week. At this time point the enzyme activity in both tissues was 1.7-1.8-fold compared to that in the controls and after this time point the activities declined but remained slightly elevated at least till week 4. The rate of collagen synthesis was measured in vitro by labeling the tissues with [(3)H]proline. The rate increased to be 1.7-fold at 1 to 2 weeks after the SAH in both of the tissues. Immunohistochemically we observed a deposition of type I collagen in the meninges at 3 weeks after the SAH. SAH is followed by a transient increase in the rate of collagen synthesis in the arachnoid and, surprisingly, also the dura. Increased synthesis also resulted in an accumulation of type I collagen in the meningeal tissue, suggesting that the meninges are a potential site for fibrosis. The time schedule of these biochemical and histological events suggest that meningeal fibrosis may be involved in the pathogenesis of late post-hemorrhagic hydrocephalus.  (+info)

MR imaging features of clear-cell meningioma with diffuse leptomeningeal seeding. (4/145)

Clear-cell meningioma is a rare disease entity showing a more aggressive nature, clinically, than those of other subtypes of meningioma. It occurs in younger persons and commonly in the spinal canal. The recurrence rate has been reported to be as high as 60%. We present a case of clear-cell meningioma in a 17-year-old man in whom initial MR imaging showed localized leptomeningeal enhancement that had progressed into the entire subarachnoid space after surgical resection of the primary tumor.  (+info)

Unilateral leptomeningeal enhancement after carotid stent insertion detected by magnetic resonance imaging. (5/145)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty combined with vascular stenting is currently being assessed in the treatment of patients with symptomatic, severe carotid stenosis. The immediate cerebral hemodynamic effects resulting from stenting are not fully understood. This article describes a novel finding: abnormal leptomeningeal enhancement after stenting shown by MRI. METHODS: Fourteen patients with symptomatic severe carotid bifurcation stenosis underwent MRI within 4 hours before and within 3 hours after attempted carotid stenting. Twelve patients were successfully stented. Part of the MR investigation consisted of the acquisition of T1-weighted images before and after administration of the contrast agent Gd-DTPA, both before and after the procedure. RESULTS: All 12 patients who underwent successful stenting did not have abnormal enhancement of the leptomeninges before stenting but developed unilateral enhancement following intervention but before the second injection of contrast agent. No contrast enhancement was detected in the 2 patients who had the angiographic procedure but were not stented. CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that abnormal changes to the leptomeningeal vasculature occur during carotid stenting which are not associated with sudden development of neurological symptoms. The anatomic distribution of the enhancement suggests that it is a consequence of the sudden change in brain hemodynamics secondary to the improvement in carotid flow after stenting.  (+info)

Supratentorial extracerebral cysts in infants and children. (6/145)

Twelve cases of supratentorial extracerebral cysts in infants and children are reported. Eight were located in the Sylvian fissure, two in the interhemispheric fissue, and two over the convexity of the cerebral hemispheres. Irrespective of their precise location these cysts, in their common, uncomplicated form, give rise to a clinical syndrome different from that recorded in older patients, with a symmetrical macrocrania of a severe degree unassociated with any neurological signs or abnormalities in psychomotor development. Extensive unilateral transillumination of the skull is common (six cases). These features, in association with specific angiographic and pneumoencephalographic findings, make a preoperative diagnosis possible. Extracerebral cysts (either arachnoidal or histologically more complex) should be distinguished from intracerebral cavities which may closely mimic them, even at surgery. The natural history of infatile cysts is studied and serial head-measurements (pre-and postoperative) are presented in five cases. Insufficient knowledge of the spontaneous course and incidence of complications prevents definite statements on the necessity and type of therapy.  (+info)

Correlation of cerebrovascular reserve as measured by acetazolamide-challenged SPECT with angiographic flow patterns and intra- or extracranial arterial stenosis. (7/145)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The ability to identify patients at increased risk for stroke from cerebral hemodynamic ischemia may help guide treatment planning. We tested the correlation between regional cerebrovascular reserve (rCVR) on acetazolamide-challenged single-photon emission CT (SPECT) brain scans and intracranial collateral pathways as well as extra- or intracranial (EC-IC) arterial stenosis on cerebral angiography. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of 27 patients who underwent cerebral angiography and acetazolamide-challenged SPECT brain imaging was performed. With cerebral angiography, the anterior, middle, and posterior cerebral artery (ACA, MCA, PCA) territories were evaluated for patterns of flow, including the ipsilateral carotid or basilar arteries, the circle of Willis collaterals, the EC-IC collaterals, and the leptomeningeal collaterals. With acetazolamide-challenged SPECT, the ACA, MCA, and PCA territories were classified as either showing or not showing evidence of decreased rCVR. Statistical significance was determined by the chi(2) test. RESULTS: Patients with decreased rCVR had significantly greater dependence on either the EC-IC or leptomeningeal collaterals (42%) than did patients without decreased rCVR (7%). Similarly, the cerebral hemispheres with decreased rCVR showed a higher prevalence of 70% or greater stenosis or occlusion of the ipsilateral EC-IC arteries in the anterior circulation (74%) than did hemispheres with no evidence of decreased rCVR (16%), and this difference was also statistically significant. CONCLUSION: Acetazolamide-challenged SPECT brain scanning provides additional information regarding rCVR that is not reliably provided by cerebral angiography.  (+info)

Multi-level disruption of the spinal nerve root sleeves in spontaneous spinal cerebrospinal fluid leakage--two case reports. (8/145)

A 37-year-old male and an 18-year-old male presented with spontaneous spinal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage from multiple nerve root sleeves. Both patients suffered abrupt onset of intense headache followed by nausea, dizziness, and one patient with and one without positional headache. Radioisotope spinal cisternography of both patients revealed that the CSF leaks were not localized in a special zone but distributed to multiple spinal nerve root sleeves. Magnetic resonance (MR) myelography suggested that the spinal CSF column was fully expanded to the root sleeves. The extraspinal nerve bundles demonstrated numerous high intensity spots. Both patients were treated conservatively, and their symptoms resolved within one month. Repeat radioisotope cisternography and MR myelography confirmed the spine was normal after recovery. We suggest that spreading disruption of the arachnoid membrane occurs at the nerve root sleeves due to CSF overflow into the spinal canal.  (+info)

The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is produced from arterial blood by the choroid plexuses of the lateral and fourth ventricles by a combined process of diffusion, pinocytosis and active transfer. A small amount is also produced by ependymal cells. The choroid plexus consists of tufts of capillaries with thin fenestrated endothelial cells. These are covered by modified ependymal cells with bulbous microvilli. The total volume of CSF in the adult ranges from140 to 270 ml. The volume of the ventricles is about 25 ml. CSF is produced at a rate of 0.2 - 0.7 ml per minute or 600-700 ml per day. The circulation of CSF is aided by the pulsations of the choroid plexus and by the motion of the cilia of ependymal cells. CSF is absorbed across the arachnoid villi into the venous circulation and a significant amount probably also drains into lymphatic vessels around the cranial cavity and spinal canal. The arachnoid villi act as one-way valves between the subarachnoid space and the dural sinuses. The rate of ...

Meningiomas are a diverse set of tumors arising from the meninges, the membranous layers surrounding the central nervous system. They arise from the arachnoid cap cells of the arachnoid villi in the meninges. These tumors usually are benign in nature; however, a small percentage are malignant. Many meningiomas produce no symptoms throughout a persons life, and if discovered, require no treatment other than periodic observation. Typically, symptomatic meningiomas are treated with either radiosurgery or conventional surgery. Historical evidence of meningiomas has been found going back hundreds of years, with some successful surgeries for their removal beginning in the 1800s. ...
A method and a system for inserting spinal catheters for administration of spinal anaesthesia are disclosed. An epidural needle having a hub is inserted into the epidural space of a patient and a cannula having a blunt end is inserted into and advanced forwardly within the epidural needle for abutment against the dura-arachnoid membrane to place the membrane in tension. The cannula is locked in place in the epidural needle by a securing means attached to the hub of the epidural needle. A flexible catheter having a wire or stylet therein with an end projecting beyond the distal end of the catheter is inserted through the cannula for piercing a hole in the tensioned dura-arachnoid membrane whereby the catheter can be inserted a predetermined distance through the dura-arachnoid membrane into the subarachnoid space. The cannula and epidural needle are removed and the wire withdrawn to allow continuous administering of an anaesthetic through the catheter. A hole can be formed in the dura-arachnoid membrane
Hydrocephalus. Hydrocephalus is a condition in which there is either an obstruction to the flow of CSF within the ventricular system or subarachnoid space (noncommunicating hydrocephalus) either due to intraventricular mass lesions or to external compression or a problem with reabsorption of CSF (communicating hydrocephalus). The type of hydrocephalus that occurs with SAH is communicating hydrocephalus. Hydrocephalus can be classified as acute, subacute, or delayed. The profiles for each are different and are briefly discussed here. With SAH, hydrocephalus develops as a result of blood in the CSF, which plugs the arachnoid villi, thus interfering with the reabsorption of CSF. Diagnosis is established on the basis of CT findings, which will reveal dilated ventricles with blood within the ventricles.. Signs and Symptoms/Treatment. The following summarizes the signs and symptoms of the three types of hydrocephalus, as well as the appropriate treatment for each.. ACUTE. ...
According to the traditional understanding of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) physiology, the majority of CSF is produced by the choroid plexus, circulates through the ventricles, the cisterns, and the subarachnoid space to be absorbed into the blood by the arachnoid villi. This review surveys key developments leading to the traditional concept. Challenging this concept are novel insights utilizing molecular and cellular biology as well as neuroimaging, which indicate that CSF physiology may be much more complex than previously believed. The CSF circulation comprises not only a directed flow of CSF, but in addition a pulsatile to and fro movement throughout the entire brain with local fluid exchange between blood, interstitial fluid, and CSF. Astrocytes, aquaporins, and other membrane transporters are key elements in brain water and CSF homeostasis. A continuous bidirectional fluid exchange at the blood brain barrier produces flow rates, which exceed the choroidal CSF production rate by far. The CSF

The arachnoid membrane (AM) and granulations (AGs) are important in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) homeostasis, regulating intracranial pressure in health and disease. We offer a functional perspective of the human AMs transport mechanism to clarify the role of AM in the movement of CSF and metabolites. Using cultures of human AG cells and a specialized perfusion system, we have shown that this in vitro model mimics the in vivo characteristics of unidirectional fluid transport and we present the first report of serum-free permeability values (92.5 µl min−1 mm Hg−1 cm−2), which in turn are in agreement with the CSF outflow rates derived from a dynamic, in vivo magnetic resonance imaging-based computational model of the subarachnoid cranial space (130.9 µl min−1 mm Hg−1 cm−2). Lucifer yellow permeability experiments have verified the maintenance of tight junctions by the arachnoidal cells with a peak occurring around 21 days post-seeding, which is when all perfusion experiments were ...
According to the Fuller/Goodman book, the meningeal arachnoid is a relatively recent discovery.

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is a clear, colorless body fluid found in the brain and spinal cord. It is produced in the choroid plexuses of the ventricles of the brain, and absorbed in the arachnoid granulations. There is about 125mL of CSF at any one time, and about 500mL is generated every day. CSF acts as a cushion or buffer for the brain, providing basic mechanical and immunological protection to the brain inside the skull. The CSF also serves a vital function in cerebral autoregulation of cerebral blood flow. The CSF occupies the subarachnoid space (between the arachnoid mater and the pia mater) and the ventricular system around and inside the brain and spinal cord. It fills the ventricles of the brain, cisterns, and sulci, as well as the central canal of the spinal cord. There is also a connection from the subarachnoid space to the bony labyrinth of the inner ear via the perilymphatic duct where the perilymph is continuous with the cerebrospinal fluid. A sample of CSF can be taken via lumbar ...

The brain is encased in the skull and suspended and supported by a series of three fibrous tissue layers: Dura mater, Arachnoid and Pia matter, known as the Meninges. Arachnoid trabeculae are strands of collagen tissues located in a space between the arachnoid and the pia matter known as the subarachnoid space (SAS). The SAS trabeculae play an important role in damping and reducing the relative movement of the brain with respect to the skull. The SAS is filled with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), which is a colorless fluid that surrounds all over the brain inside the subarachnoid spaces. This fluid stabilizes the shape and position of the brain during head movements. To address normal and pathological SAS functions, under conditions where an electrical stimulation is applied, this study proposes a novel fully-coupled electro-Fluid-Structure Interaction (eFSI) modeling approach to investigate the response of the system of SAS-CSF under the applied electric current, which is provided by the ...

The authors conducted a retrospective study of 107 patients treated for syringomyelia associated with arachnoid scarring between 1976 and 1995 at the Departments of Neurosurgery at the Nordstadt Hospital in Hannover, Germany, and the University of California in Los Angeles, California. Twenty-nine patients have not been surgically treated to date because of their stable neurological status. Seventy-eight patients with progressive neurological deficits underwent a total of 121 surgical procedures and were followed for a mean period of 32 (±37) months. All patients demonstrated arachnoid scarring at a level close to the syrinx. In 52 patients the arachnoid scarring was related to spinal trauma, whereas 55 had no history of trauma and developed arachnoid scarring as a result of an inflammatory reaction. Of these, 15 patients had undergone intradural surgery, eight had suffered from spinal meningitis, three had undergone peridural anesthesia, and one each presented with a history of osteomyelitis, ...

The nerves in the spinal cord are layered in multiple thin tissues known as meninges, that help cushion and protect it. The arachnoid mater occurs in the middle tissue of the meninges. If there is any damage done to the arachnoid matter, it would lead to swelling and inflammation. This swelling results in the nerves present in the spine to stick together, altering nerve function and there is intense pain.. ...

The dura mater has been cut away so that the left cerebral hemisphere is visible lying inside the arachnoid membrane. The tentorium appears in the lower right part of the view and the transverse sinus is opened along its posterior border. The superior sagittal sinus has been opened by removing a strip of dura from its superficial wall. The superior cerebral veins ascend on the surface of the frontal and parietal lobes to empty into this sinus at various points. A number of anastomoses are present between these veins, none being particularly large in this specimen. In general the superior cerebral veins are divided into anterior and posterior groups. In this case there appear to be several anterior vessels, a group of large veins intermediate in position (overlying the region of the central sulcus) and several posterior veins (not visible in this view ...
The glymphatic system works like this: the brain is surrounded by the arachnoid membrane, which is covered in cerebral spinal fluid (CSF). CSF uses pathways that lead into the brain with the support of glia cells. These are the same pathways that arteries use to carry blood, creating a parallel system where CSF is carried through on an outer ring and blood is carried through the inner ring ...

Arachnoid cysts are benign, fluid-filled sacs in the brain or spine. The three most common surgical treatments for arachnoid cysts in the brain are craniotomy fenestration, endoscopic cyst fenestration or shunt placement. The nonsurgical treatment is close observation of the cyst.. Usually, arachnoid cysts develop between the surface of the brain and the skull base, or on the arachnoid membrane, one of the three membranes that cover the brain and the spinal cord. Less often, they arise in the spine.. For information on spinal arachnoid cysts, please click here.. Arachnoid cysts are the most common type of intracranial cyst and are typically found in the temporal fossa, the posterior fossa and the suprasellar region.. Untreated arachnoid cysts may cause permanent, severe neurological damage due to expansion of the cyst, hydrocephalus or hemorrhage. With treatment, most individuals with arachnoid cysts have a good prognosis.. ...
Arachnoid cysts are intra-arachnoid collections of cerebrospinal fluid. Arachnoid cysts of the posterior fossa are rare lesions that are considered to be mostly congenital in origin. Arachnoid cysts of the posterior cranial fossa may manifest themselves in several different ways. When they are symptomatic, headache, gait disturbance, nausea, vomiting, focal neurologic signs, dizziness, and seizures are most common in the patients with increased intracranial pressure. Increased intracranial pressure is caused by the ball-valve mechanism of the cysts membrane that communicates with subarachnoid space or arachnoid cells and contains specialized membranes and enzymes, which have secretory activity. A postsurgical arachnoid cyst in the posterior cranial fossa has doubled and slitlike arachnoid membrane that supports our knowledge about the underlining mechanism is reported. ...

I - INTRODUCTION Described for the first time in 1831 by BRIGHT, the arachnoid cyst is an arachnoid formation whose walls are purely arachnoid and does not differentiate itself from the neighboring arachnoid tissue. It can develop wherever there is arachnoid but it tends to localize in the peri-cephalic arachnoid
Arachnoid cysts are congenital benign fluid collections within the arachnoid membrane-one of the 3 membranous layers that cover the brain and the spinal cord. The cyst is filled with a fluid similar to cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).. Arachnoid cysts may occur either in the brain or along the spinal cord. Most cases present during infancy; however onset of symptoms may be delayed until adolescence when the cyst has enlarged. Intracranial arachnoid cysts are reported to account for about 1% of all intracranial space-occupying lesions. This percentage, however, has probably been underestimated as with the advent of modern imaging techniques intracranial arachnoid cysts have become more frequently detected or diagnosed.. According to their size and location arachnoid cysts may not produce any symptoms and are only discovered incidentally on MRIs of the brain performed for a variety of reasons, or they may enlarge and become symptomatic by exerting pressure on the surrounding brain or by interfering with ...
A variety of cystic lesions may develop in spinal canal. These cysts can be divided into intramedullary, intradural, extradural, cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and sacral cysts according to anatomical presentation, as well as arachnoid, meningeal, perineural, juxtafacet, discal, neurenteric cysts, and cyst-like lesions according to different etiologies. Mechanisms of initiation and growth vary for different cysts, such as congenital, trauma, bleeding, inflammatory, instability, hydrostatic pressure, osmosis of water, secretion of cyst wall, and one-way-valve effect, etc. Up to now, many treatment methods are available for these different spinal canal cysts. One operation method can be applied in cysts with different types. On the other hand, several operation methods may be utilized in one type of cyst according to the difference of location or style. However, same principle should be obeyed in surgical treatment despite of difference among spinal canal cysts, given open surgery is melely for symptomatic
Four children, ages 12 to 15 years, with intracranial arachnoid cysts complicated by increased intracranial pressure are reported from Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia, PA. They presented with recent onset or increasing headaches, exacerbated by the supine position. Visual acuity was normal. Optic discs were swollen. Opening pressures at LP were 37 to 54 cm H20. All failed to respond to conservative medical therapies, but symptoms improved after a surgical shunting procedure. The arachnoid cyst was in the left middle temporal fossa and was complicated by a Chiari I malformation in 3 patients; one patient had hydrocephalus diagnosed at 18 months and a posterior fossa cyst. Three patients were previously treated with a cystoperitoneal shunt before age 2 and required shunt revision. [1]. COMMENT.

The subdural space (or subdural cavity) is a potential space that can be opened by the separation of the arachnoid mater from the dura mater as the result of trauma, pathologic process, or the absence of cerebrospinal fluid as seen in a cadaver. In the cadaver, due to the absence of cerebrospinal fluid in the subarachnoid space, the arachnoid mater falls away from the dura mater. It may also be the site of trauma, such as a subdural hematoma, causing abnormal separation of dura and arachnoid mater. Hence, the subdural space is referred to as potential or artificial space. ...
The spinal meninges are subdivided as the dura, arachnoid, and pia mater and are the connectivetissue membranes that surround and support the spinal cord and cauda equina. The outermost of the meninges is the dura mater, which is fibrous and tough and is anchored to the periosteum at the foramen magnum. The dura mater extends inferiorly to the sacrum. The extradural or epidural space (between dura mater and vertebral periosteum) contains fat, loose connective tissue, and venous plexuses. The arachnoid matter is the more delicate, membranous intermediate tissue that follows the dura inferiorly to S2 and laterally to intervertebral foramina. The subdural space, between dura mater and arachnoid mater, contains only a film of lubricating cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The pia mater is the innermost membranous covering that adheres closely to the surface of the spinal cord, enclosing networks of blood vessels. The subarachnoid space, located between the arachnoid mater and the pia mater, contains CSF. ...

Most likely the test substance enters the peripheral circulation via the arachnoid villi. The purpose of this paper is to describe a method for perfusing the cerebroventricular system of conscious dogs without passage of test substances to the peripheral circulation. With the method described, the mean (±SE) cerebroventricular pressure in conscious dogs was 7.4 ± 0.8 cmH2O (n = 16), and the mean (±SE) production of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) was 25 ± 0.3 μl/min (n = 16).

Visual impairment Almost all Arachnoid Cysts occur in relation to an arachnoid cistern. The most common locations are the middle cranial fossa (near the temporal lobe) and suprasellar (near the third ventricle). However, cysts may be found anywhere within the intracranial compartment, including the posterior cranial fossa.. Routine evaluation with CT or MRI scan is usually satisfactory. CT scans usually show a smooth bordered cystic mass composed of a density similar to cerebrospinal fluid. There is no enhancement with contrast administration. Expansion of the nearby bone by remodeling is usually seen, confirming their chronic nature. TREATMENT. Arachnoid cysts that do not cause significant mass effect or symptoms, regardless of their size and location, generally do not require treatment. If there is significant or severe mass effect on surrounding structures, or if there are symptoms, then surgical treatment is recommended. The following table summarizes the treatment options:. ...

WHAT IS ADHESIVE ARACHNOIDITIS?? JOIN Derek Morrison ON HIS VIGIL FROM AUSTRALIA TO WASHINGTON DC AS HE MAKES THE WORLD AWARE OF THIS CHRONIC DISEASE AND THE HUGE MEDICAL COVER UP.......Adhesive arachnoiditis is a disease of the spinal cord (cauda equina) in which the nerves of the spinal cord become inflamed and swollen, tethering and adhering themselves to one another and the dural sac which encapsulates the entire brain and spinal cord. A specific membrane of that sac (dura) called the arachnoid membrane becomes permanently injured, and a form of chronic spinal meningitis occurs. This leads to weakness, paralysis, spasms, electric shocks and 24/7 intractable pain. The sufferers of this disease are left with life changing injuries that affect the central nervous system throughout the body, including bladder/bowel disfunction......There is no treatment or cure at this time for this disease...which leaves sufferers often wheelchair /house bound and some bedridden and requiring lifelong medical ...

The human brain is a soft, spongy collection of tissues and nerve cells. The main thing that protects the human brain is the bone of the skull encasing it. Then, there are three layers of membrane, called meninges that also aid in covering and protecting the brain. The three layers are the dura mater, arachnoid mater, and pia mater. The dura mater is closest to the bone, the arachnoid is in the middle and loosely surrounds the brain, and the pia mater is closest to the brain and attached to the spinal cord surface. Finally, the cerebrospinal fluid, a clear body fluid, also cushions the brain. ...

Although hearing loss in newborns and infants is predominantly due to malformations and infections, there are other situations which may compromise hearing quality in later stages, including posterior-fossa arachnoid cysts (ACs). We report the case of an 8-year-old girl who presented with hearing loss linked to a pontocerebellar-angle AC which had been diagnosed and treated when she was 14 months old. The pathophysiology of this late AC complication is discussed. This case reminds us that a close follow-up with audiologic monitoring and/or brain stem auditory evoked response is necessary in children with posterior-fossa AC because modern neuroradiological imaging methods do not inform about cerebral and nerve functions, although they provide excellent morphological details of ACs and have improved the ease and accuracy of their early diagnosis. Therefore, surgery should be performed before complete hearing loss occurs; however, in hearing-impaired patients, it remains unclear which surgical treatment is
Thought this was some very a interesting and thought provoking discussion about I found very informative as two of my family members suffer from this malady. Obstetric epidurals and adhesive arachnoiditis.. It has been suggested that developing adhesive arachnoiditis after an obstetric epidural pain block is a very rare event, with less than 1000 cases ever diagnosed.. Yet when we look at the adhesive arachnoiditis community, women with the disease are far more common than men. Why is that? Dr. Antonio Aldrete suggests that this is because 2/3 of women in childbirth opt to have spinal or epidural anesthesia, and he estimates that 4% develop adhesive arachnoiditis as a result of complications from epidural anesthesia. If that is true, there are many woman suffering from this complication. With an estimated 70,000,000 children born in the last 20 years, this could result in 2,800,000 women who were totally disabled with this incurable disease, that is IF the rate is 4%.

Welcome to the Arachnoid Cyst Foundation! Where we are searching for answers to todays tough questions. There are ways to take care of yourself.
Spinal arachnoid cysts are known to be relatively uncommon lesions that may be either intra- or extradural. Intradural spinal arachnoid cysts are even less common. These cysts are usually asymptomatic but may produce symptoms by compressing the spinal cord or nerve roots suddenly or progressively. Arachnoid cysts represent approximately 1% of all intracranial masses and are relatively uncommon at the level of the spinal canal. In fact, they are usually located in the thoracic region (80%), as compared with 15% in the cervical spine and 5% in the lumbar spine. The problem presents in all age groups, but up to 75% are discovered in children. There is a 3:1 predominance in males. They may appear as a single or as multiple cysts. Its etiology is unclear; however, most spinal intradural cysts are thought to be congenital. Back pain is the most common onset symptom, followed by sensory changes, urinary dysfunction, and weakness. Changes in posture often cause variation of symptoms. CT myelography and ...
Object. The authors conducted a study to determine the effectiveness of mitomycin C (MMC) in preventing epidural fibrosis in rats which underwent craniectomy. Methods. Craniectomies were performed in the right frontoparietal region; after the procedure the animals had been divided in 2 groups of 10 each. Cotton pads soaked with 0.1mg/ml MMC or saline (control) were applied to the operative sites. Four weeks after craniectomy the rats were sacrificed, and epidural fibrosis was evaluated histologically. The dura mater thickness, the density of epidural fibrosis, arachnoidal involvement, and bone regeneration were determined. Results. No obvious adhesion formed in the rats in the MMC group, but severe epidural adhesions were found in control group. The duramater thickness, the density of epidural fibrosis, and arachnoidal involved rat number in the MMC group were significantly lower than in control groups. Conclusions. Epidural fibrosis can be a devastating condition that forms after craniectomy. ...
