Spontaneous ventriculostomy: report of three cases revealed by flow-sensitive phase-contrast cine MR imaging. (1/81)

Spontaneous ventriculostomy is a rare condition that occurs with the spontaneous rupture of a ventricle, resulting in a communication between the ventricular system and the subarachnoid space. Three cases of spontaneous ventriculostomy through the floor of the third ventricle that occurred in cases of chronic obstructive hydrocephalus are presented. The communication was identified via flow-sensitive phase-contrast cine MR imaging. Spontaneous ventriculostomy is probably a result of a rupture of the normally thin membrane that forms the floor of the third ventricle and, with long-standing obstructive hydrocephalus, creates an internal drainage pathway that spontaneously compensates for the hydrocephalus.  (+info)

Endoscopic aqueductal plasty via the fourth ventricle through the cerebellar hemisphere under navigating system guidance--technical note. (2/81)

A 1-year 8-month-old boy presented with isolated fourth ventricle after ventriculoperitoneal shunting for hydrocephalus associated with ventricular and subarachnoid hemorrhage. The therapeutic endoscope was inserted through the thin left cerebellar hemisphere. Endoscopic aqueductal plasty was performed via the enlarged fourth ventricle under guidance from a navigating system. Endoscopic aqueductal plasty via the fourth ventricle under navigating system guidance is a useful procedure enabling less invasive surgery for isolated fourth ventricle associated with slit-like ventricle after shunt placement.  (+info)

Secondary amenorrhea caused by hydrocephalus due to aqueductal stenosis : report of two cases. (3/81)

Amenorrhea is rarely presented as a manifestation of endocrinological disturbances in patients of chronic hydrocephalus. We describe two cases of secondary amenorrhea caused by hydrocephalus due to aqueductal stenosis. Two female patients of age 30 and 20 yr presented with amenorrhea and increasing headache. Magnetic resonance images revealed marked, noncommunicating hydrocephalus without any tumorous lesion. In one patient, emergent extraventricular drainage was necessary because of progressive neurological deterioration. Each patient underwent surgical intervention for the hydrocephalus-ventriculoperitoneal shunt and endoscopic third ventriculostomy. Both resumed normal menstruation continuing so far with further normal menstrual bleeding. These two cases and others reported in the literature indicated that the surgical intervention for hydrocephalus resolves amenorrhea in all the cases of amenorrhea due to hydrocephalus. The suspected role of the surgery is the correction of increased intracranial pressure, which is an important pathogenetic factor in the development of amenorrhea.  (+info)

Sylvian aqueduct syndrome as a sign of acute obstructive hydrocephalus in children. (4/81)

Eight cases of obstructive hydrocephalus manifesting palsy of upward gaze and other features of the Sylvian aqueduct syndrome are reported. During the crisis of intracranial hypertension, all of them developed upward gaze palsy and variable abnormalities of the convergence mechanism such as paralysis, spasm, and convergence nystagmus. The frequent apparent blindness was probably related to gaze paralysis, since visual evoked responses were present. All these ocular abnormalities disappeared after shunting. Periaqueductal dysfunction on the basis of raised intracranial pressure is postulated as the possible mechanism for the above ocular manifestations. The 'setting sun' sign is frequently seen in infants and children with hydrocephalus and has been considered in the past to result from displacement of eyeballs by pressure from the orbital roof plate. Our observations would suggest periaqueductal dysfunction rather than the mechanical displacement as the possible mechanism for this sign.  (+info)

Tight Sylvian cisterns associated with hyperdense areas mimicking subarachnoid hemorrhage on computed tomography--four case reports. (5/81)

Four patients with supratentorial mass lesions (two chronic subdural hematomas, one acute epidural hematoma, and one acute subdural hematoma) showed hyperdense sylvian cisterns on computed tomography (CT). Association of subarachnoid hemorrhage was suspected initially, but was excluded by intraoperative observation or postoperative lumbar puncture. CT showed disappearance of the hyperdense areas just after evacuation of the mass lesions. The hyperdense areas are probably a result of the partial volume phenomenon or concentrations of calcium deposits rather than abnormally high hematocrit levels, which were not found in these patients.  (+info)

Unusual arachnoid cyst of the quadrigeminal cistern in an adult presenting with apneic spells and normal pressure hydrocephalus--case report. (6/81)

A 67-year-old woman was admitted to our clinic with symptoms of normal pressure hydrocephalus, lower cranial nerve pareses, and pyramidal and cerebellar signs associated with respiratory disturbances. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a 4.7 x 5.4 cm quadrigeminal arachnoid cyst causing severe compression of the tectum and entire brain stem, aqueduct, and cerebellum, associated with moderate dilation of the third and lateral ventricles. Emergency surgery was undertaken due to sudden loss of consciousness and impaired breathing. The cyst was totally removed by midline suboccipital craniotomy in the prone position. Postoperatively, her symptoms improved except for the ataxia and impaired breathing. She was monitored cautiously for over 15 days. CT at discharge on the 18th postoperative day revealed decreased cyst size to 3.9 x 4.1 cm. Histological examination confirmed the diagnosis of the arachnoid cyst of the quadrigeminal cistern. The patient died of respiratory problems on the 5th day after discharge. Quadrigeminal arachnoid cysts may compress the brain stem and cause severe respiratory disturbances, which can be fatal due to apneic spells. Patients should be monitored continuously in the preoperative and postoperative period until the restoration of autonomous ventilation is achieved.  (+info)

Vasopressin release by nicotine: the site of action. (7/81)

1. In cats anaesthetized with chloralose the release of neurohypophysial hormones was examined after injection of nicotine into the cerebral ventricles or cisterna magna or its topical application through perspex rings to the ventral surface of the brain stem. The release was measured by assaying the hormones in samples of venous blood. 2. Injected into a lateral or the third cerebral ventricle, nicotine (0.5 to 1 mg) produced release of vasopressin without oxytocin. When the aqueduct was cannulated, preventing access to the fourth ventricle and to the subarachnoid space, this release did not occur. 3. Vasopressin was also released without oxytocin when nicotine (0.25 to 2 mg) was injected into the subarachnoid space through the cisterna magna. With this route of administration the nicotine did not enter any part of the ventricular system. 4. Applied through paired perspex rings placed across the ventral surface of the brain stem, nicotine again produced release of vasopressin without ocytocin. The amount of nicotine placed in each ring was usually 80 mug, but a release was obtained with 10 mug and in one experiment with as little as 5 mug. 5. The bilateral region on the ventral surface of the brain stem where nicotine acts when producing release of vasopressin lies lateral to the pyramids and in a longitudinal direction, 6 to 9 mm caudal to the trapezoid bodies. 6. The vasopressin release by nicotine injected intraventricularly or intracisternally, or applied topically to the ventral surface of the brain stem was not due to absorption of nicotine into the blood stream, nor to blood pressure effects. 7. It is concluded that nicotine acts on the ventral surface of the brain stem probably by activating the central projection to the supra-optic and possibly also the paraventricular nuclei of afferent pathways in the sinus and vagus nerves which control the release of vasopressin in response to changes in blood volume or distribution.  (+info)

Effect of endoscopic third ventriculostomy on neuropsychological outcome in late onset idiopathic aqueduct stenosis: a prospective study. (8/81)

OBJECTIVE: To undertake a prospective study of the long term neuropsychological outcome in patients with late onset idiopathic aqueduct stenosis (LIAS) after endoscopic third ventriculostomy. METHODS: Six patients with LIAS were evaluated pre- and postoperatively using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and standardised psychometric testing procedures. Endoscopic third ventriculostomy was done using standard surgical techniques. The mean long term follow up was 81.2 weeks. RESULTS: Preoperatively, all patients had cognitive impairment, four of them showing deficits in several cognitive domains. After endoscopic third ventriculostomy, all patients improved clinically and had ventricular size reduction on MRI. Postoperative neuropsychological testing showed that five patients achieved normal or near normal cognitive functions, and one improved moderately. CONCLUSIONS: Endoscopic third ventriculostomy caused a substantial improvement in the neuropsychological deficit of LIAS patients. This was also true for patients with enlarged ventricles that might be diagnosed radiologically as "arrested hydrocephalus."  (+info)

The objective of this work is to quantify age-related differences in the characteristics and coupling of cerebral arterial inflow and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) dynamics. To this end, 3T phase-contrast magnetic resonance imaging blood and CSF flow data of eleven young (24 ± 3 years) and eleven elderly subjects (70 ± 5 years) with a comparable sex-ratio were acquired. Flow waveforms and their frequency composition, transfer functions from blood to CSF flows and cross-correlations were analyzed. The magnitudes of the frequency components of CSF flow in the aqueduct differ significantly between the two age groups, as do the frequency components of the cervical spinal CSF and the arterial flows. The males aqueductal CSF stroke volumes and average flow rates are significantly higher than those of the females. Transfer functions and cross-correlations between arterial blood and CSF flow reveal significant age-dependence of phase-shift between these, as do the waveforms of arterial blood, as well as ...
The cerebrospinal fluid flow in the third ventricle of the brain and the aqueduct of Sylvius was studied using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) based on subject-specific boundary conditions derived from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. The flow domain geometry was reconstructed from anatomical MRI scans by manual image segmentation. The movement of the domain boundary was derived from MRI brain motion scans. Velocimetric MRI scans were used to reconstruct the velocity field at the inferior end of the aqueduct of Sylvius based on the theory of pulsatile flow in pipes. A constant pressure boundary condition was assigned at the foramina of Monro. Three main flow features were observed: a fluid jet emerging from the aqueduct of Sylvius, a moderately mobile recirculation zone above the jet and a mobile recirculation below the jet. The flow in the entire domain was laminar with a maximum Reynolds number of 340 in the aqueduct. The findings demonstrate that by combining MRI scans and CFD ...

Primary aqueductal stenosis with disruption of septal leaves due to increased intraventricular pressure. Normal neurologic development after 8 years followup.
METHODS: Data collected in six patients with LOVA who had undergone ETV were reviewed retrospectively in terms of the definition of treatment success, rates of success, complications, and outcome. All six patients presented with headache disorders. In all patients, triventricular hydrocephalus had been diagnosed as aqueductal stenosis, and head circumference measurements were above the 98th percentile. All six had undergone successful ETV as documented by the free flow of cerebrospinal fluid into the basal cisterns, which remained open throughout the follow-up period. After the procedure, one patient experienced a mild degree of difficulty with short-term memory. Five patients remained symptomatic or had symptoms requiring further treatment 3 months to 3 years after ETV. Four patients received ventriculoperitoneal shunts, and one underwent venous stenting for high intracranial pressure after successful ETV. In two patients in whom aqueductal stenosis had been diagnosed, the sylvian aqueduct was ...

Farmland without a reliable summer water-source was virtually worthless. During the growing season, the water demand of a modest local irrigation system might consume as much water as the city of Rome; and the livestock whose manure fertilised the fields must be fed and watered all year round. At least some Roman landowners and farmers relied in part or whole on aqueduct water to raise crops as their primary or sole source of income but the fraction of aqueduct water involved can only be guessed at. More certainly, the creation of municipal and city aqueducts brought a growth in the intensive and efficient suburban market-farming of fragile, perishable commodities such as flowers (for perfumes, and for festival garlands), grapes, vegetables and orchard fruits; and of small livestock such as pigs and chickens, close to the municipal and urban markets.[42] A licensed right to aqueduct water on farmland could lead to increased productivity, a cash income through the sale of surplus foodstuffs, ...

A 45-year-old man presented to us with headache and vomiting for15 years ago. He was diagnosed as having obstructive hydrocephalus due to a pineal region tumour. A ventriculoperitoneal shunt was inserted to relieve hydrocephalus with symptomatic relief. He was followed up with regular MRI scans. Serial imaging showed slow progression in tumor size when he was 60 years old. Neurological examination revealed Parinaud sign with upward gaze palsy. The MRI with gadolinium showed an mildly enhancing lobulated tumor in the region of the superior tectum measuring 22.5mm x 21mm x 20mm (Figs. 1 and 2). The lesion at the superior tectum and the pineal region showed heterogeneous T1-hyperintense signal on precontrast images (Fig. 1). It exhibited very slow growth, with a gradual increase in size over 15 years. There was mild mass effect to the cerebral aqueduct with indentation of the pineal gland (Fig. 3). However, there was no hydrocephalus at that time. In view of symptomatic progression of tumor size, ...
A computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of the cerebrospinal fluid system was constructed based on a simplified geometry of the brain ventricles and their connecting pathways. The flow is driven by a prescribed sinusoidal motion of the third ventricle lateral walls, with all other boundaries being rigid. The pressure propagation between the third and lateral ventricles was examined and compared to data obtained from a similar geometry with a stenosed aqueduct. It could be shown that the pressure amplitude in the lateral ventricles increases in the presence of aqueduct stenosis. No difference in phase shift between the motion of the third ventricle walls and the pressure in the lateral ventricles because of the aqueduct stenosis could be observed. It is deduced that CFD can be used to analyze the pressure propagation and its phase shift relative to the ventricle wall motion. It is further deduced that only models that take into account the coupling between ventricles, which feature a ...

The brain produces roughly 500 mL of cerebrospinal fluid per day,[2] at a rate of about 25 mL an hour.[1] This transcellular fluid is constantly reabsorbed, so that only 125-150 mL is present at any one time.[1]. CSF volume is higher on a mL/kg basis in children compared to adults. Infants have a CSF volume of 4 mL/kg, children have a CSF volume of 3 mL/kg, and adults have a CSF volume of 1.5-2 mL/kg. A high CSF volume is why a larger dose of local anesthetic, on a mL/kg basis, is needed in infants. Additionally, the larger CSF volume may be one reason as to why children have lower rates of postdural puncture headache.[17]. Most (about two-thirds to 80%) of CSF is produced by the choroid plexus.[1][2] The choroid plexus is a network of blood vessels present within sections of the four ventricles of the brain. It is present throughout the ventricular system except for the cerebral aqueduct, and the frontal and occipital horns of the lateral ventricles.[18] CSF is also produced by the single layer ...

Franciscus Sylvius (15 March 1614 - 19 November 1672), born Franz de le Boë, was a Dutch physician and scientist (chemist, physiologist and anatomist) who was an early champion of Descartes, Van Helmonts and William Harveys work and theories. He was one of the earliest defenders of the theory of circulation of the blood in the Netherlands, and commonly falsely cited as the inventor of gin. Sylvius, a latinization of de le Boë translated as of the woods, was born in Hanau, Germany to an affluent family originally from Cambrai, but worked and died in Netherlands. He studied medicine at the Protestant Academy of Sedan, and from 1632-1634 in Leiden under Adolph Vorstius and Otto Heurnius. In 1634 he held a disputation Positiones variae medicae under the presidency of Vorstius, in which he defended the proposition that there should be a pulmonary circulation. After that Sylvius made a study tour to Jena and Wittenberg, and on 16 March 1637 he defended a thesis entitled De animali motu ...
Bryleigh had her CT scan Friday. They canceled the MRI of her spine that was suppose to be done. The insurance would not cover it for some reason. But if Dr. Price feels she needs one then we will have it done later on. She did really good for the CT. They put her to sleep for like 15 minutes. Afterwards we met with Dr. Price to go over the findings. She said that everything looked good with the shunt. Her ventricles had gotten smaller, and her head size had not increased. However, she did see what she thought was a small arachnoid cyst. She said that normally these do not cause a problem, but it can. She is going to have an MRI in 6 months to see if it has grown, if it has, then we will have to discuss surgery :-(. Also, she said that Bryleighs hydro was not aqueductal stenosis. I had read of a procedure ETV that can be done sometimes with the aqudectual stenosis. So Bryleigh does not really fall into that category. But, her fourth ventricle is small so she could possibly still be a candidate. ...

In 2067, human cloning is a part of everyday life. But it is a bizarre form of cloning: not actually the direct copying of a humans, but rather the construction of custom-made reproductions of humans using animal DNA. The CIA uses these so-called chimeras for various undercover operations, and one of their technicians, Simon Boyle, has a sideline making illegal copies: chimeras based on famous criminals, for rent. His Billy the Kid, a creation unable to comprehend or sometimes even recognize the sorts of things that didnt exist before the 1880s and endowed with powerful sex pheromones, is quite popular for a night of historically convincing passion with rich women, particularly the part where Boyle (as sheriff Pat Garrett) guns him down. As the story progresses, Billy the Kid starts remembering things from his previous lives. One of Boyles clients sets Billy loose into the mean streets of the 21st century, where he struggles to seize control of the myths in his ROM. Jane, a worker in a ...

Ask most Angelenos what they think of when they hear the name William Mulholland, and theyll probably mention the curvy road in the Hollywood Hills that bears his name.. Mulholland Drive has one of the best 360-degree vistas of the tentacled metropolis: To the southwest, Hollywood, West L.A., and downtown. To the northeast, the San Fernando Valley, and further on, the Santa Clarita Valley-close to the terminus of the Los Angeles Aqueduct, the 233-mile pipeline that first brought water from the Owens Valley to the thirsty city back in 1913. The Aqueduct was Mulhollands construction, and its payoff-the explosive growth and viability of Los Angeles-has grafted his name onto the prime arteries of the city.. Mulhollands career as czar of the L.A. Department of Water and Power may have peaked with the opening of the aqueduct, but it fell with a tragedy. Mulholland was also the engineer of the St. Francis Dam, a 120-foot high concrete wall that held a reservoir of some 38,000 acre-feet of water. ...

In these stories, characters lack power in a traditional sense yet are strong and resourceful in worlds running a gamut from nearly contemporary to the strangest of futures. Beginning with At the Huts of Ajala, the story of a girl with two heads, and proceeding to Wallamelon, in which watermelon vines protect a neighborhood, magic is drawn from many sources and is disguised as science fiction, as in Good Boy, in which a colony is stricken by a mysterious disease and healed by a woman possessed by the spirit of Elegba. The collection ends with the haunting fable The Beads of Ku, about a woman who bargains in the marketplace of the city of the dead, and the foolishness of her husband. Shawls stories afford fascinating glimpses into the magical underpinnings of worlds springing from all sorts of places within the world we all know.--Regina Schroeder ...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Increased CSF stroke volume through the cerebral aqueduct has been proposed as a possible indicator of positive surgical outcome in patients with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus; however, consensus is lacking. In this prospective study, we aimed to compare CSF flow parameters in patients with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus with those in healthy controls and change after shunt surgery and to investigate whether any parameter could predict surgical outcome. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-one patients with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus and 21 age- and sex-matched healthy controls were prospectively included and examined clinically and with MR imaging of the brain. Eighteen patients were treated with shunt implantation and were re-examined clinically and with MR imaging the day before the operation and 3 months postoperatively. All MR imaging scans included a phase-contrast sequence. RESULTS: The median aqueductal CSF stroke volume was ...
Authors: Jain, Kapil , Gupta, Priyanka , Srivastava, Arun Kumar , Kumar, Raj Article Type: Research Article Abstract: Ventriculo-peritoneal (VP) shunt and endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV), both are well-established therapeutic modalities for the management of hydrocephalus. However, the treatment of choice is still controversial due to non-uniformity of the pre-existing data. It was a single institute retrospective cum prospective study enrolling 68 pediatric patients of congenital aqueductal stenosis (neonate to 18-year-old, mean age 48.2 ± 67.9 mo). The present study dealt with a uniform population of congenital aqueductal stenosis excluding …secondary causes like post-infectious, post-hemorrhagic and tumor-related aqueductal stenosis. There were 54 patients in the VP shunt group and 14 in the ETV group. In the VP shunt group, there was no intra-operative or post-operative mortality and none had cerebrospinal fluid leak. Technical failure rate (shunt malfunction within 5 days of ...

The clinical and pathological (imaging, neurocognitive assessment, CSF analyses) evolution of the present patient with fetal onset hydrocephalus supports the possibility that the progressive stenosis of SA initiated during the embryonic period may have resulted from (1) ependymal disruption of the cerebral aqueduct and/or (2) dysfunction of the subcommissural organ.. A strong body of evidence obtained in mutant hydrocephalic animals and human hydrocephalus indicates that the loss of neural stem cells/ependyma from the embryonic germinal zone, regarded as ventricular zone disruption, is associated with the onset of hydrocephalus [5-12]. The disruption phenomenon is the final outcome of several genetic and non-genetic abnormalities that lead to the abnormal expression of gap and adherent junctions [11, 12, 37-39]. In mutant hyh mice, the time program of ventricular zone disruption starts during fetal life and ends by the end of the first postnatal week [5-7]. It is only after this disruption ...
The aim of this paper is to present the evolution of aqueduct technologies through the millennia, from prehistoric to medieval times. These hydraulic works were used by several civilizations to collect water from springs and to transport it to settlements, sanctuaries and other targets. Several civilizations, in China and the Americas, developed water transport systems independently, and brought these to high levels of sophistication. For the Mediterranean civilizations, one of the salient characteristics of cultural development, since the Minoan Era (ca. 3200-1100 BC), is the architectural and hydraulic function of aqueducts used for the water supply in palaces and other settlements. The Minoan hydrologists and engineers were aware of some of the basic principles of water sciences and the construction and operation of aqueducts. These technologies were further developed by subsequent civilizations. Advanced aqueducts were constructed by the Hellenes and, especially, by the Romans, who dramatically

DFNB4 with enlarged vestibular aqueduct is characterized by pre- or perilingual onset of sensorineural or mixed hearing loss, which may be fluctuating or progressive. The hearing loss is associated with temporal bone abnormalities, most commonly enlargement of the vestibular aqueduct, but it can also include the more severe Mondini dysplasia, a complex malformation in which the normal cochlear spiral of 2.5 turns is replaced by a hypoplastic coil of 1.5 turns (summary by Campbell et al., 2001 and Pryor et al., 2005). Enlarged vestibular aqueduct is the most common form of inner ear abnormality and can be associated with disequilibrium symptoms in a minority of patients (Valvassori, 1983; Jackler and de la Cruz, 1989; Levenson et al., 1989; Arcand et al., 1991; Belenky et al., 1993; Okumura et al., 1995).

Many posters including yours truly, have discussed the Big A versus Belmont Park developments for some time now. Former Governor Spitzer convinced a majority of Albany back in March-April of 2007, that a friendly deal with the NYRA, lets call it The Land Grab in conjunction with the closure and sale of of the land at Aqueduct, with the grand development at Belmont Park was the way to maximize benefit to the state. The NYRA hasnt ever had any real qualms about not having to race in the freezing cold at Aqueduct, knowing some provision for a shorter late fall-early spring meet would be made at Belmont. An astute political move was to make it look like Delaware North was going to pay a ton of money to develop the Big A, then when they defaulted or tried to modify the deal, the discussion of just doing one grand palace at a downstate racetrack could gain some momentum once again, and as a last ditch concession to the Aqueduct community if necessary, bring in a vendor to hang some machines on ...
In our prospective study cohort, membranous obstruction was demonstrated in 92 (68.6%) of 134 cases of hydrocephalus with the use of 3D-CISS at 3T. Intraventricular membranous obstruction is the most common pathologic finding to cause noncommunicating hydrocephalus (85/114 total noncommunicating cases). However, except in the cerebral aqueduct region, conventional images are insensitive in detection of obstructive membranes in the CSF pathway. In this study, they were only demonstrated in 57 (36.3%) of 157 obstruction sites with the use of conventional imaging. In choosing the most appropriate treatment technique and to assess the prognosis in hydrocephalus, the classification of hydrocephalus and demonstration of obstruction, if it exists, are of significant importance.20,33 The terminology and the classification of hydrocephalus are still a matter of debate and are not the aims of our study. However, it is obvious that we need accurate neuroimaging techniques to demonstrate CSF pathways ...
It consists of cavities lined with ependymal cells, interconnected with narrow channels that contain cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Theres is a vascular process of the pia mater in the ventricles containing capillaries of the choroids artery/arteria choroidea called choroids plexus/plex choroideus. The lateral ventricles/ ventriculus lateralis are located in each hemisphere and subdivided in body, anterior horn, posterior horn and inferior horn. Each lateral ventricle is connected to the third ventricle/ ventriculus tertius by foramen interventricularis (foramen Monro). The third ventricle is located in the midline and is connected to fourth ventricle/ventriculus quartus by the cerebral aqueduct/aqueductus cerebri. The fourth ventricle/ventriculus quartus is located between the brain stem and cerebellum. ...

We have investigated whether there is evidence of target-directed growth of retinal axons to the tectum, and whether the surface of the rostral brainstem is an obligatory substrate for growing optic axons by transplanting embryonic mouse retinae to the cerebral aqueduct of neonatal rats. Such retinae emit axons that grow dorsally through the brain parenchyma to reach the superficial layers of the superior colliculus either by running dorsally along the midline, or by following a dorsally directed, radially arching course through the brain parenchyma. Studies of the early outgrowth pattern from transplanted retinae, and comparison studies of the axonal outgrowth from similarly placed cortical grafts suggest that outgrowth of retinal axons is target-directed and specific to optic axons.
Variations in the size and shape of the human vestibular aqueduct were evaluated in 118 plastic casts of unselected specimens of human temporal bones. They were examined by conventional radiography and by high resolution CT. The degree of the mastoid and perilabyrinthine pneumatization was defined and classified into 3 types. The dimensions of the peripheral portion of the aqueduct were found to be related to the extent of the perilabyrinthine pneumatization.. ...
Minor narrowing of the channel between the third and fourth ventricles may not produce any symptoms, other than a slightly enlarged ventricle. Therefore, brain imaging may be the first indication an adult has aqueductal stenosis and may develop arrested hydrocephalus. A neurologist may order those images for an unrelated reason or because the patient has talked about symptoms that might suggest hydrocephalus.. CT scans are able to identify the enlarged ventricles that are typical of hydrocephalus. They cannot always provide an explanation as to why the ventricles are enlarged. If the third ventricle is enlarged but the fourth ventricle is normal, the neurologist or neurosurgeon may order additional testing and imaging to confirm the diagnosis of arrested hydrocephalus.. Those tests may include:. ...

The arterial and venous blood vessels will fill with contrast, but this will not actually tell the reader the determination of the flow direction. On rare occasions, a patient may have a condition called sub-clavian steal syndrome (SSS, for short.) This condition can be discovered through a procedure called MRA carotid flow quantification of the carotid vessels. This is not a procedure that is always done with a carotid MRA study, so it needs to be specifically requested by the referring physician, the radiologist or vascular specialist. Additionally, not all MRI locations are familiar with performing flow quantification on the blood vessels, but this is something easily taught.. Additionally, one should have flow quantification MRI software available to load the images, calculate blood flow and determine the flow directions, flow speeds and more.. Some of the patients present with vertigo (dizziness), positional vertigo (turning of the head), tinnitus (ringing in the ears), numbness of the ...

The project stretches more than 700 miles, from Lake Oroville in the north to Lake Perris in the south. Water is stored at Lake Oroville and released when needed into the Feather River, which flows into the Sacramento River and to the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. In the north Bay-Delta, water is pumped into the North Bay Aqueduct for delivery to Napa and Solano counties. In the south Bay-Delta, SWP pumps lift water into the 444-mile-long California Aqueduct. Some water flows into the South Bay Aqueduct, to serve areas in Alameda and Santa Clara counties. The remainder flows southward to cities and farms in central and southern California. In the winter, when demands are lower, water is stored at the San Luis Reservoir located south of the Bay-Delta. The SWP terminates at Lake Perris where it joins MWDs system..

Its very possible that the gold rail we saw yesterday will carry over into todays card, but Im just not the type of handicapper who likes to analyze races assuming a bias will be present. Its useful to know when surfaces have become biased and keep detailed records of such occurrences, but making money by just blindly betting inside speeds is not what draws me to this game.. Im assuming that many horseplayers will enter this card having handicapped for the bias and will therefore gravitate towards the probable inside speed Alice and Trixie in this race. On a fair racetrack, I would not like Alice and Trixie at all. She proved on January 17th that she wants no part of a route of ground as she stopped to walk in the final furlong against a field that may have been even weaker than the one she meets today. In all likelihood Alice and Trixe is going to be an odds-on favorite here as many will assume that she will play out to be the inside speed. That may very well be the case, but I dont see ...

I shouldnt have stopped walking. I shouldnt have stopped moving. I shouldnt have stopped thinking. I let my mind go, and with that I lost the battle. The throbbing semi-surrealistic pain shooting up from my feet suddenly became excruciatingly tense. Frantically I looked around for a safe place to rest. The road cracked and broke out infront of me, right next to it lies the old aqueduct. The trickling water and seemingly good protection from the reeds was and still is fatally attractive. Many a person had found their death there, and in this world, there was no such thing as life insurance or funeral plans. The best you could manage was a couple of dogsstrolling hungrily by. A gruesome thought, but yet. Nobody seemed to learn the lesson. And yet I found myself mesmerisingly stumbling towards it. I needed the rest and the water! I noticed a new pain as I walked down the slightly natural embankment. The concrete was filled with small sharp shell-like objects. They stuck to the concrete like ...
We are almost bidding the Llangollen canal a very fond farewell after being on it for the last 6 weeks!!!
