Evaluation of CSF leaks: high-resolution CT compared with contrast-enhanced CT and radionuclide cisternography. (1/124)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Radiologic evaluation of CSF leaks is a diagnostic challenge that often involves multiple imaging studies with the associated expense and patient discomfort. We evaluated the use of screening noncontrast high-resolution CT in identifying the presence and site of CSF rhinorrhea and otorrhea and compared it with contrast-enhanced CT cisternography and radionuclide cisternography. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the imaging studies and medical records of all patients who were evaluated for CSF leak during a 7-year period. Forty-two patients with rhinorrhea and/or otorrhea underwent high-resolution CT of the face or temporal bone and then had CT cisternography and radionuclide cisternography via lumbar puncture. The results of the three studies were compared and correlated with the surgical findings in 21 patients. RESULTS: High-resolution CT showed bone defects in 30 of 42 patients (71%) with CSF leak. High-resolution, radionuclide cisternography and CT cisternography did not show bone defects or CSF leak for 12 patients (29%) who had clinical evidence of CSF leak. Among the 30 patients with bone defects, 20 (66%) had positive results of their radionuclide cisternography and/or CT cisternography. For the 21 patients who underwent surgical exploration and repair, intraoperative findings correlated with the defects revealed by high-resolution CT in all cases. High-resolution CT identified significantly more patients with CSF leak than did radionuclide cisternography and CT cisternography, with a moderate degree of agreement. CONCLUSION: Noncontrast high-resolution CT showed a defect in 70% of the patients with CSF leak. No radionuclide cisternography or CT cisternography study produced positive results without previous visualization of a defect on high-resolution CT. CT cisternography and radionuclide cisternography may be reserved for patients in whom initial high-resolution CT does not identify a bone defect or for patients with multiple fractures or postoperative defects.  (+info)

Spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid leakage detected by magnetic resonance cisternography--case report. (2/124)

A 49-year-old male with no history of head trauma suffered cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) discharge from the left nostril for one month. Coronal computed tomography (CT) showed lateral extension of the sphenoid sinus on both sides and CSF collection on the left side. CT cisternography could not identify the site of CSF leakage. Heavily T2-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) imaging (MR cisternography) in the coronal plane clearly delineated a fistulous tract through the sphenoid bone into the sphenoid sinus. Patch graft with muscle fragment completely relieved the CSF rhinorrhea. Postoperative three-dimensional CT showed the two bone defects identified during surgery. Small bony dehiscences in the sphenoid bone and lateral extension of the sphenoid sinus predisposed the present patient to CSF fistula formation. MR cisternography in the coronal and sagittal planes is superior to CT scanning or CT cisternography for detection of the site of active CSF leakage.  (+info)

CSF rhinorrhoea from unusual site : report of two cases. (3/124)

CSF rhinorrhoea is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Bone and dural defects may result from trauma or enlarging 'pitholes' or breach in lateral recess of sphenoid sinus. Unless surgically corrected, they tend to cause meningitis and rhinorrhoea. Unusually delayed rhinorrhoea is a diagnostic problem.  (+info)

A retrospective analysis of spontaneous sphenoid sinus fistula: MR and CT findings. (4/124)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The sphenoid sinus is rarely implicated as a site of spontaneous CSF fistula. We undertook this study to evaluate the potential etiopathogenesis of spontaneous CSF fistula involving the sphenoid sinus and to review the imaging findings. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the imaging findings of 145 cases of CSF fistula from our departmental archives (August 1995 through August 1998). Fifteen (10%) patients had CSF fistulas involving the sphenoid sinus. Eleven (7%) patients had spontaneous CSF fistulas, whereas in four patients, the CSF fistulas in the sphenoid sinus were related to trauma. Of the 11 patients, nine underwent only plain high-resolution CT and MR cisternography. One patient additionally underwent contrast-enhanced CT cisternography, and one other patient underwent MR cisternography only. For each patient, the CSF fistula site was surgically confirmed. The MR imaging technique included T1-weighted and fast spin-echo T2-weighted 3-mm-thick coronal sequences obtained with the patient in the supine position. The plain high-resolution CT study included 3-mm-thick, and sometimes 1- to 1.5-mm-thick, coronal sections obtained with the patient in the prone position. Similar sections were obtained after injecting nonionic contrast material intrathecally via lumbar puncture for the CT cisternographic study. We evaluated each of the 11 patients for the exact site of CSF leak in the sphenoid sinus. We also determined the presence of pneumatization of lateral recess of the sphenoid sinus, orientation of the lateral wall of the sphenoid sinus, presence of arachnoid pits, presence of brain tissue herniation, and presence of empty sella in each of these patients. RESULTS: The exact sites of the CSF fistulas were documented for all 11 patients by using plain high-resolution CT, MR cisternography, or CT cisternography. In nine (82%) patients, the sites of the CSF fistulas were at the junction of the anterior portion of the lateral wall of the sphenoid sinus and the floor of the middle cranial fossa. In the remaining two (18%) patients, the sites of the CSF fistulas were along the midportion of the lateral wall of the sphenoid sinus. Of these 11 patients, one had bilateral sites of the CSF fistula at the junction of the anterior portion of the lateral wall of the sphenoid sinus with the floor of the middle cranial fossa. In nine (82%) patients, the presence of brain tissue herniation was revealed, and this finding was best shown by MR cisternography. Ten (91%) patients had extensive pneumatization of the lateral recess of the sphenoid sinus, with an equal number having outward concave orientation of the inferior portion of the lateral wall of the sphenoid sinus. In seven (63%) patients, the presence of arachnoid pits, predominantly along the anteromedial aspect of the middle cranial fossa, was shown. In seven (63%) patients, empty sella was shown. For comparison, we reviewed the CT studies of the paranasal sinuses in 100 age-matched control subjects from a normal population. Twenty-three had extensive lateral pneumatization of the sphenoid sinus along with outward concavity of the inferior portion of the lateral wall. None of these 23 patients had arachnoid pits. CONCLUSION: The sphenoid sinus, when implicated as a site of spontaneous CSF leak, yields a multitude of imaging findings. These are extensive pneumatization of the lateral recess of the sphenoid sinus, outward concave orientation of the inferior portion of the lateral wall of the sphenoid sinus, arachnoid pits, and empty sella. Considering the normative data, we speculate that this constellation of findings could play a role in the etiopathogenesis of spontaneous sphenoid sinus fistulas. Our findings also show the efficacy of noninvasive imaging techniques, such as plain high-resolution CT and MR cisternography, in the evaluation of sphenoid sinus CSF leak. Our data also suggest that spontaneous sphenoid sinus CSF leak is not an uncommon occurrenc  (+info)

Delayed cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea seven months after transsphenoidal surgery for pituitary adenoma--case report. (5/124)

A 51-year-old female had undergone transsphenoidal surgery for pituitary adenoma producing growth hormone. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage occurred during surgery. The sella turcica and sphenoid sinus were packed with abdominal fat and fibrin glue, buttressing the closure with a fragment of sphenoid bone. No CSF rhinorrhea occurred postoperatively. Severe meningitis developed 7 months later. CSF rhinorrhea occurred 10 days after readmission. Exploration through the transsphenoidal approach identified a small hole at the floor of the sella and CSF leaking into the sphenoid sinus through the hole. The CSF leakage stopped after the second surgery. Delayed CSF rhinorrhea without bromocriptine administration is very rare. The cause of delayed CSF rhinorrhea remains unclear. CSF rhinorrhea should be suspected if meningitis develops even months after transsphenoidal surgery.  (+info)

Cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea associated with untreated prolactinoma--case report. (6/124)

An 80-year-old female presented with non-traumatic cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) rhinorrhea due to untreated prolactinoma, with simultaneous development of bilateral leg pains and gait disturbance due to lumbar canal stenosis. Neuroimaging showed an intrasellar mass extending into the sphenoid sinus, right cavernous sinus, and suprasellar cistern. Computed tomography cisternography clearly showed the CSF pathway through the tumor. Subtotal removal of the tumor and reconstruction of the sellar floor via a transsphenoidal approach resulted in resolution of the CSF rhinorrhea. Both the invasive features and/or spontaneous shrinkage of the tumor might have created the abnormal CSF pathway. The clinical manifestation of lumbar canal stenosis might be triggered by such profound CSF leakage.  (+info)

Recovery from Duret hemorrhage: a rare complication after craniotomy--case report. (7/124)

A 44-year-old female presented with Duret hemorrhage due to transtentorial herniation by extradural hematoma as a complication after craniotomy for treatment of spontaneous middle cranial fossa cerebrospinal fluid leakage through the oval window. Brain computed tomography revealed linear hemorrhage in the midbrain and the rostral pons. She awoke after 2 weeks in a coma, despite showing ocular bobbing and bilateral intranuclear ophthalmoplegia. She was discharged from the hospital with minimal neurological defects. Duret hemorrhage is usually fatal, but this case shows that early surgical decompression is the most important factor to avoid the worst sequelae.  (+info)

Characterization of chemical meningitis after neurological surgery. (8/124)

We reviewed the records of 70 consecutive adult patients with meningitis after a neurosurgical procedure, to determine the characteristics that might help to distinguish a sterile postoperative chemical meningitis from bacterial infection. The spinal fluid profiles in bacterial and chemical meningitis are similar. The exceptions are that a spinal fluid white blood cell count > 7500/microL (7500 x 10(6)/L) and a glucose level of < 10 mg/dL were not found in any case of chemical meningitis. The clinical setting and clinical manifestations were distinct enough that no antibiotic was administered after lumbar puncture to 30 (43%) of the 70 patients with postoperative meningitis. Chemical meningitis was infrequent after surgery involving the spine and sinuses. Patients with chemical meningitis did not have purulent wound drainage or significant wound erythema or tenderness, coma, new focal neurological findings, or onset of a new seizure disorder. They rarely had temperatures > 39.4 degrees C or cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea or otorrhea.  (+info)

A cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) rhinorrhoea occurs when there is a fistula between the dura and the skull base and discharge of CSF from the nose. CSF rhinorrhea or liquorrhoea commonly occurs following head trauma (fronto-basal skull fractures), as a result of intracranial surgery, or destruction lesions. A spinal fluid leak from the intracranial space to the nasal respiratory tract is potentially very serious because of the risk of an ascending infection which could produce fulminant meningitis. This article reviewed the causes, diagnosis and treatment of CSF leakage. A PUBMED search of the National Library of Medicine was conducted. CSF leak most commonly occurs following trauma and the majority of cases presenting within the first three months. CSF rhinorrhoea have significantly greater incidence of periorbital haematoma. ...

A spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid leak (SCSFL) is a medical condition in which the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) held in and around the human brain and spinal cord leaks out of the surrounding protective dural sac, for no apparent reason. The dura, a tough, inflexible tissue, is the outermost of the three layers of the meninges, the system of membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord. A spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid leak is one of several types of cerebrospinal fluid leaks and occurs due to the presence of one or more holes in the dura. A spontaneous CSF leak, as opposed to traumatically caused CSF leaks, arises idiopathically. A loss of CSF greater than its rate of production leads to a decreased volume inside the skull known as intracranial hypotension. Any CSF leak is most often characterized by orthostatic headaches - headaches that worsen in a vertical position and improve when lying down. Other symptoms can include neck pain or stiffness, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, fatigue, and a ...
CSF rhinorrhoea refers to the drainage of cerebrospinal fluid through the nose. Measures of CSF components such as glucose have been used in the past, but are neither sensitive nor specific; beta-2 transferrin, however, has been shown to have a high positive predictive value. It has also been noted to be characterized by unilateral discharge. It is a sign of basal skull fracture. Management includes watchful waiting - leaks often stop spontaneously; if this does not occur then neurosurgical closure is necessary to prevent the spread of infection to the meninges. Other signs of basal skull fracture includes CSF otorrhoea (drainage of CSF through the ear). It can have devastating complications in some patients, as the communication between the nasal cavity and the cerebrospinal fluid and CNS can result in bacterial infections of the CNS that can have catastrophic effects on the patient. CSF rhinorrhoea can also be a symptom of a pituitary adenoma.[citation needed] Spontaneous CSF rhinorrhea. The ...

Rhinorrhea is especially common during winter months and certain low temperature seasons. Cold-induced rhinorrhea occurs due to a combination of thermodynamics and the bodys natural reactions to cold weather stimuli. One of the purposes of nasal mucus is to warm inhaled air to body temperature as it enters the body. In order for this to happen, the nasal cavities must be constantly coated with liquid mucus. During cold, dry seasons, the mucus lining nasal passages tends to dry out, meaning that mucous membranes must work harder, producing more mucus to keep the cavity lined. As a result, the nasal cavity can fill up with mucus. At the same time, when air is exhaled, water vapor in breath condenses as the warm air meets the colder outside temperature near the nostrils. This causes an excess amount of water to build up inside nasal cavities. In these cases, the excess fluid usually spills out externally through the nostrils.[6]. ...
If these items didnt hit your alert button-then consider this: about 20% of all episodes of acute illness leading to medical attention requiring at least one day of restricted activity were due to upper respiratory infection. The major result of URI is a runny nose (rhinorrhea), along with an urgent "wish I were dead" feeling.. Now just because you have a runny nose doesnt necessarily mean you have a head cold; there are a lot of other things that can cause rhinorrhea. Allergies are the first things that come to mind, seasonal, due to pollens, and perennial rhinitis due to dusts and molds.. Other frequently found causes are vasomotor in origin; such as certain drugs (reserpine, prazosin, Hitrin, cocaine abuse); abuse of nose drops (rhinitis medicamentosa); and psychological causes (anger, sexual arousal). Vasomotor means affecting the constriction and dilatation of small blood vessels, which, in turn, causes the swelling and shrinkage of the mucosal lining of the nose and sinuses.. Hormonal ...

The Johns Hopkins Sinus Center provides state-of-the-art care to patients with sinus and allergy disorders including treatment of CFS leaks.
Spontaneous CSF leaks are most commonly found in the thoracic spine followed by the cervicothoracic junction [3,7]. Our patient demonstrated a diffuse CSF leak at almost every level of his cervical and thoracic spines, most severe at the right C4-7 nerve roots (Figure 3). Once a diagnosis of spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak had been established, further questioning elicited that he did not have any traumatic events except for an extremely strong cough. This increased his intra-thoracic, intra-abdominal, and intracranial pressures. Due to his rapidly declining mental status, it became necessary to place bilateral subdural drains, as it appeared that the bilateral subdural hematomas were the cause of his decline. The drains were kept to gravity in order not to propagate a continued negative pressure. The drains were removed after five days following the patients gradual improvement in neurologic exam.. Currently, there is limited consensus on the treatment approach for SIH complicated ...

There is frequently a need for dural grafts to cover defects resulting from retraction, shrinkage, or excision following neurosurgical procedures. Several materials have been evaluated both experimentally and clinically, and then discarded. Collagen, in its various forms, continues to be an area of intense interest. In this study the authors examined the suitability of collagen sponge to effect dural repair.. In a 5-year clinical study 102 collagen sponge implants were examined macroscopically and histologically. Graft encapsulation, neomembrane formation, delayed hemorrhage, and foreign body reactions were not found. The porous nature of the collagen sponge encouraged fibroblastic ingrowth and dural repair. Meningocerebral adhesions were present in 11 patients, all of whom had required significant cortical resection or had pia-arachnoid disruption during the initial surgery. Inflammatory cells were seen only in response to infection.. Postoperative cerebrospinal fluid leaks developed in only ...

Encephalocele is a rare type of neural tube defect (NTD) present at birth that affects the brain. The neural tube is a narrow channel that folds and closes during the third and fouth weeks of pregnancy to form the brain and spinal cord.
RESULTS: Over 5 years, 46 patients (average age, 51 years) with 56 spontaneous CSF leaks were treated by a single otolaryngologist. Twenty-one subjects presented with recurrence of their CSF leak following previous endoscopic and/or open approaches by other physicians. Obesity was present in 78% of individuals (average BMI, 35.6). Fifty-two CSF leaks (93%) were successfully repaired at first attempt. With secondary repair, all CSF leaks were closed at last clinical follow-up (average, 93 weeks). Three patients developed late failures (,2 months), with one recurrence at a distinct location from the primary site at 8 months postprocedure (associated with ventriculoperitoneal shunt failure). Opening pressures via lumbar puncture averaged 24.3 ± 8.3 cm H2 0, which increased significantly to 32.3 ± 9.0 cm H2 0 (P , .0001) following closure of the skull base defect(s). Management of intracranial hypertension included acetazolamide (n = 23) or permanent CSF diversion (n = 19, including five revisions ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Closed continuous drainage of cerebrospinal fluid via a lumbar subarachnoid catheter for treatment or prevention of cranial/spinal cerebrospinal fluid fistula. AU - Shapiro, Scott. AU - Scully, T.. PY - 1992. Y1 - 1992. N2 - One hundred and seven patients who had a lumbar subarachnoid catheter (teflon or silicone) placed for closed continuous cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) drainage between 1983-1991 are presented. Overall, the drain was successful in achieving the desired goal in 101 of 107 (94%) cases. There were no deaths. Five of 107 (5%) patients developed infections including two cases (2%) of meningitis. There were three cases (3%) of overdrainage with temporary neurologic decline, but all recovered. Five of fifteen (33%) teflon catheters required replacement because of occlusion, but only 5 of 92 (5%) silicone catheters required replacement. Transient lumbar nerve root irritation was seen in 15 of 107 (14%) patients treated for a CSF fistula, and all symptoms resolved after ...

In addition to the seasonal and H1N1 flu vaccines, the pneumococcal vaccination is a good idea for those with health conditions that put them at higher risk for complications and illness," said State Health Commissioner Karen Remley, M.D., MBA.. In a typical, non-pandemic year, most serious pneumococcal infections occur in people age 65 and older. But in the 2009 flu pandemic, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports an increase in pneumococcal infections in younger persons.. Most of those with high-risk conditions for pneumococcal disease are also at high risk for severe complications from influenza. The CDC recommends pneumococcal vaccination for all people 65 years of age and older and for persons 2 through 64 years of age with certain high-risk conditions. Risk factors include cardiovascular or lung disease, sickle cell disease, diabetes, alcoholism, chronic liver disease, cerebrospinal fluid leak, a cochlear implant, a weakened immune system due to illnesses such as ...

Isnt is interesting that it is the little things in life that really make this journey worthwhile? Each of us has different ideas of what a little thing is in our lives, but each of us can find something we are grateful for. I found myself dwelling on the idea of little things today and how wonderful they make life... and also confound it. How many times have we found our focus moved to a little thing- a small fluid leak from our cars, a short temporary illness, a small want that isnt fulfilled- in such a way that we are unable to fully and clearly focus on the really big things in our life. Sometimes a little thing is vastly important or becomes so... and sometimes we find that it was truly something that we could have ignored and wasted too much of our limited time on. It really is the little things that can bind and bring us joy ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The pericranial flap for reconstruction of anterior skull base defects. AU - Price, John C.. AU - Loury, Mark. AU - Carson, Benjamin. AU - Johns, Michael E.. PY - 1988/11. Y1 - 1988/11. N2 - In 1981, the senior author first reported the use of the pericranial flap for support of the brain following resection of the anterior skull base. Since the initial report, considerable experience has been gained with this flap. It is currently deployed via a bifrontal craniotomy and is placed primarily as a support beneath the frontal lobes. The pericranial flap may also be used to repair dural laceration and defects. The sinonasal surface is routinely grafted with split-thickness skin or dermis. This technique provides an excellent barrier between the sinonasal cavity and the cerebrospinal fluid, establishing a tough, fibrous platform. Herniation of intracranial contents has not occurred. One major complication has been reported in which radiation necrosis occurred during postoperative ...
New daily persistent headache (NDPH) is a subtype of chronic daily headache. It is bilateral, has a pressing/tightning (non-pulsing) quality, is mild to moderate in intensity, and is not aggravated by routine physical activity. Primary headache disorders are those for which there is no underlying secondary cause that can be identified. As with Migraine disease and some other headache disorders, there are several secondary conditions that can mimic NDPH, so they must be ruled out before a diagnosis of New Daily Persistent Headache can be confirmed. Two conditions in particular that must be ruled out are spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak and cerebral venous sinus thrombosis.. If the headache is persistant and localized as it is, an MRI of the brain may be indicated although will probably be of low yield. It may well be a kind of status migrainosis - a self perpetuating migraine headache that needs powerful medication to stop it such as IV infusions of steroids, and DHE ...
CSF fluid draining from the nose is known as CSF rhinorrhea. Homeopathic treatment for rhinorrhea is derived from plants and is safe and natural.
In patients with recurrent meningitis, one of the possible routes of infection is via an abnormal pathway connecting the CSF space with the middle ear or mastoid air cells. These patients may also have CSF rhinorrhea or CSF otorrhea, depending on the integrity of the ear drum.. The commonly recognized causes of CSF leakage into the middle ear include trauma to the temporal bone and prior surgery with subsequent temporal bone defects and chronic infection (4, 5). Spontaneous CSF fistulas from the subarachnoid space into the middle ear cavity are uncommon and may be classified into two types: those that extend to the middle ear or external canal (perilabyrinthine) and those associated with a developmental anomaly of the cochlea (translabyrinthine) (2, 6).. The more common translabyrinthine variety is nearly always associated with anacusis and a severe labyrinthine dysplasia. The involved cochlea completely lacks a modiolus and thus permits ready communication between the CSF and the perilymphatic ...
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Complex CSF diseases may be underdiagnosed or poorly understood on conventional CT or MR imaging. Although intrathecal CT cisternography with water-soluble iodinated contrast medium has been used, very few studies have dealt with the intrathecal use of gadopentate dimeglumine (Gd-DTPA), though it appears superior to CT. We report our experience with the intrathecal use of Gd-DTPA for MR cisternography and ventriculography in pediatric patients referred for study and treatment of complex CSF-related diseases.. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ten patients (range, 1 month-16 years of age) were selected after we obtained specific informed consent. Intrathecal gadolinium injection was performed via transfontanelle ventriculostomy, ventriculoperitoneal shunt reservoir, or lumbar puncture. Cases included spontaneous CSF leaks (n = 1), complex traumatic frontoethmoidal fractures with suspected CSF leak (n = 2), multiloculated congenital or acquired hydrocephalus (n = 3), intraventricular ...
This is a rare presentation of a pituitary tumour. Macroprolactinomas more commonly present with clinical features of hyperprolactinaemia, such as loss of libido and impotency in males or galactorrhoea and menstrual dysfunction in females. They can also present as space-occupying lesions with headaches, vomiting and visual disturbances, although our patient did not have any of these symptoms. In the literature, only 52 isolated cases were found with CSF leaking due to invading macroprolactinoma (14 patients) or medically induced CSF leakage (38 patients) and only seven of these went on to develop meningitis (1). The commonest pathogens were Streptococcus pneumoniae, Neisseria meningitidis and Haemophilus influenzae. This case is particularly interesting, as there was no CSF leakage apparent, which would theoretically increase the susceptibility to develop meningitis. Indeed, there have been only two cases reported with prolactinoma and meningitis but no rhinorrhoea as a sign of CSF leakage ...
What is the Cribriform Plate? In the human skull, Cribriform Plate is a significant part that separates the brain from the nasal cavity. It is like a honeycomb or sieve-like structure that is thin and narrow and has tiny perforations. This plate which is situated between the anterior cranial fossa and the nasal cavity
MRI was performed every two weeks within the first two months, as a way of monitoring the evolution of the abscess and venous sinus thrombosis. Brain abscess shrank in size to finally disappeared and there was a reexpansion of the pituitary gland. Moreover, the rectus sinus and Galen vein thrombosis got resolved (Fig. 1). The remnant tumor was stabilized in size and prolactin serum levels normalized.. Despite the progressive improvement of level of consciousness, sensory dysphasia and central deafness persisted. Three months later his performance status was 50 and progressively he ameliorated to a performance status of 70 one year after surgery.. 3Discussion. Meningitis has been described in literature after transsphenoidal surgery or due to pituitary invasive adenomas, being the Streptococcus pneumoniae2 the most common microorganism implicated. However it is infrequent to be associated with an indolent pituitary adenoma as first symptom at presentation.. Moreover CSF rhinorrhea may occur as a ...

In October 2014 I started getting cough headaches (produced by Valsalva maneuvers), some ear issues (feeling of fullness - needing to pop), and slight facial tingling/numbness. I saw my general doc and had an MRI which showed a large (bit smaller than a golf ball), benign, likely congenital, anachroid cyst in the middle fossa area. The MRI showed no signs of a CFS leak. I was referred to a neurosurgeon. The neurosurgeon said theres a strong likelihood my cough headache is caused by the
This study can also help to evaluate pneumatisation of the anterior clinoid process preoperatively with computed tomography and carotid angiograms to avoid complications such as rhinorrhoea and pneumocephalus.
Background: T-shaped tissue anchors have promise to close incisions and perforations of the intestines securely. The closure of perforations, gastro-gastric, or intestinal fistulas usually requires invasive open or laparoscopic surgery under general anesthesia and can be complex surgeries due to their reoperative or inflammatory nature.. Objective: The proposed use of full thickness tissue anchors adds a new surgical aspect to the endoscopic treatment of fistulas and perforations by offering a robust suture like closure of defects. Instead of a 20 cm abdominal incision or 3 or 4 one centimeter incisions with the related postoperative morbidity an endoscopic technique is used which requires no postoperative limitation of activities.. Methods: In this study the investigators propose to use an endoscopic technique that eliminates the need for open or laparoscopic surgery and provides a more robust endoscopic repair than is possible with traditional endoscopic tools. Patients who are scheduled to ...
The incubation period for respiratory tract infections varies from 2-3 days to 7-10 days, depending on the pathogen.. Rhinitis - inflammation of the nasal mucosa. The mucous membrane becomes swollen, inflamed, maybe with exudation and without it. Infectious rhinitis is a manifestation of ARVI and ARI, diphtheria, scarlet fever, measles and other infections. Patients complain of nasal discharge or rhinorrhea (rhinovirus infection, flu, parainfluenza, etc.) or nasal congestion (adenovirus infection, infectious mononucleosis), sneezing, malaise and lacrimation, sometimes a small temperature. Acute infectious rhinitis is always two-sided. Discharge from the nose can have a different character. Viral infection is characterized by clear liquid, sometimes dense secretions (the so-called serous-mucous rhinorrhea), and for bacterial infection mucous discharge with a purulent component of yellow or greenish flowers, cloudy (mucopurulent rhinorrhea). Infectious rhinitis rarely occurs in isolation, in most ...

We evaluated the implementation of the endoscopic (E) technique by an interdisciplinary ENT/neurosurgeon team as compared to the established classical microscopic technique (M) performed by one experienced neurosurgeon for pituitary adenomas in a single center. A retrospective analysis of patients operated for newly diagnosed pituitary adenomas was performed between November 2004 and August 2012. Outcome and complications are presented. A total of 116 patients were operated, 64 microscopically (M) and 52 endoscopically (E). Mean follow up was 35 months (range 1.4-95), 1 patient was lost to follow-up. Most frequent pathology was hormone inactive adenoma (60% E, 51% M). Operating time was stable in the M-group (± 94 min). The E-group showed a learning curve in mean operating time (2004-2007: 154 min, 2008-2012: 93 min). Postoperative CSF leaks were seen in 9.6% (E) vs. 3.1% (M) of cases. More E-cases were re-operated (5 vs. 1) and more M-cases received a lumbar drainage (8 vs. 19). Transient ...

NP013 (Trichrome) [WebScope] [ImageScope]. A 52-year-old alcoholic man sustained a head injury after getting into a fight. He experienced intermittent rhinorrhea for some years thereafter. Approximately 6 weeks before his death, he contracted bronchopneumonia and flu like symptoms. Two weeks later, he was admitted to the ED with confusion and a high fever. A lumbar puncture was performed and CSF showed numerous leukocytes. He was treated for meningitis with antibiotics. Shortly after, he developed hemiparesis and had a convulsion. A brain MRI revealed multiple ring enhancing lesions in the right frontal and temporal regions. An old fracture of the cribriform plate was also recognized and the dural defect overlying it was repaired. A craniotomy was performed; however attempts to drain the lesion were unsuccessful. Two weeks later he died.. At autopsy, there were about 100 cc of blood under the dura over the left hemisphere, hemorrhagic necrosis of the ventral parts of the frontal poles related to ...

The olfactory cleft is the specific site of development of many tumours (respiratory epithelial adenomatoid hamartoma, intestinal-type adenocarcinoma, neuroblastoma, inverted papilloma, glomangiopericytoma, etc.) and is also the site of CSF rhinorrhoea via the cribriform plate (cribri-rhinorrhoea). Olfactory cleft surgery must therefore be considered to be a specific type of surgery, complementary to ethmoidal labyrinth surgery and anterior skull base surgery. Olfactory cleft tumours can be resected according to five different surgical procedures: olfactory cleft mucosal resection, partial resection of the olfactory cleft, total resection of the olfactory cleft, unilateral endoscopic anterior skull base resection, and bilateral endoscopic anterior skull base resection ...
Endonasal procedures may be necessary during management of craniofacial trauma. When a skull base fracture is present, these procedures carry a high risk of violating the cranial vault and causing brain injury or central nervous system infection. A 52-year-old bicyclist was hit by an automobile at high speed. He sustained extensive maxillofacial fractures, including frontal and sphenoid sinus fractures (Fig. 1). He presented to the emergency room with brisk nasopharyngeal hemorrhage, and was intubated for airway protection. He underwent emergent stabilization of his nasal epistaxis by placement of a Foley catheter in his left nare and tamponade with the Foley balloon. A six-vessel angiogram showed no evidence of arterial dissection or laceration. Imaging revealed inadvertent insertion of the Foley catheter and deployment of the balloon in the frontal lobe (Fig. 2). The balloon was subsequently deflated and the Foley catheter removed. The patient underwent bifrontal craniotomy for dural repair of ...
Objectives/Hypothesis: The introduction of intranasal pedicled flaps has reduced the incidence of postoperative cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks to less than 5%. Nevertheless, in malignant tumors those flaps are not always available because of nasal septum invasion. Minimally invasive pericranial flaps (PCF) are associated with minimal adverse effects and good cosmetic appearance. In spite of that, there are only a few reports of this reconstructive technic limited to short surgical series and radio-anatomical analysis. Clinical results of a surgical cohort are presented. Study Design: Cohort prospective study. Methods: Clinical data, including age, gender, stage, histopathological findings, rate of complications and appearance of PCF at fifth day and two months postoperative were recorded. Postoperative morbidities were recorded as wound abnormalities, nasosinusal, orbital and central nervous system complications. Chi-squared test was used to correlate qualitative variables and Student-t-test to
Dural tears represent a serious challenge for the spine surgeon as well as the patient. Nerve injury, spinal fluid leak and meningitis are all possible complications of a dural tear. Dural tears usually occur in re-operation where the dura is adherent to perineural and peridural scar tissue. This situation as well as dura adherent to periosteum is usually evident on adequate pre-operative MRI scans.. Dural tears are less likely to occur in a primary operative (virgin spine) procedure. They may actually exist prior to surgery where a freely sequestered fragment of disc material has torn a nerve axilla and produced its own tamponade. In this circumstance the removal of the fragment may remove the tamponade and spinal fluid leakage is then seen. The appropriate repair of dural tears requires skill and the right surgical tools and well as appropriate assistive devices.. ...
This case reports a 28 year old male who presented with left sided nasal obstruction and rhinorrhoea. He had undergone two previous endonasal surgeries for removal of left inverted papilloma at a different hospital. Clinical and radiological findings were suspicious of disease recurrence, for which an endoscopic clearance was performed, confirming the diagnosis. He however developed further aggressive recurrences, with areas of severe dysplasia involving the orbit and disease in nasal septum, frontal sinuses and sphenoid bilaterally, necessitating five further endoscopic procedures - two combined with external approach and one assisted by image guidance. ...
We describe the case of an infant undergoing endoscopic repair of a laryngeal cleft where the combination of dexmedetomidine and propofol infusions was used as the anesthetic technique. With this regimen, endotracheal intubation was unnecessary during the perioperative period, the procedure lasted approximately 3h, and the child recovered uneventfully. Historically, the techniques used for microlaryngeal surgery involve the use of intermittent endotracheal intubation and insufflation of halogenated anesthetics to the oropharynx. Given the potential benefits of a technique that obviates the need for endotracheal intubation during microlaryngeal surgery and prevents insufflation of halogenated anesthetics in an open environment, the combination of propofol and dexmedetomidine should be considered as a viable and desirable anesthetic option for infants undergoing complex microlaryngeal surgery Artí-culo en PDF ...

Asthma: Is a chronic inflammatory disease which is caused by narrowing of respiratory airways leading to respiratory disorders. Nearly 300 million people around the world are dealing with this disease. Asthma symptoms include continuous period of wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness and coughing.

Kendra Jackson was diagnosed with a cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak at Nebraska Medicine in Omaha after other doctors suggested she had seasonal allergies.
A dye is added to the CSF via a lumbar drain (the tube in the back as described above) while the nasal cavity is examined carefully to identify the site of drainage. Once identified, then the leak can be repaired. Finally, a significant number of CSF leaks occur spontaneously without any preceding trauma or surgery. ...

The standard transmastoid facial recess approach has become the popular technique for cochlear implantation. Although this approach has been used for implantation in patients with common cavity malformations, in patients with this anomaly and severe abnormalities of the middle ear, this approach may be technically difficult and makes the facial nerve vulnerable to injury. Using a direct approach to the common cavity through the mastoid cavity, we have successfully performed cochlear implantation in 1 patient with a common cavity malformation. This transmastoid labyrinthotomy approach to the common cavity is an effective and simple technique for placing the electrode array. It minimizes the risk to the facial nerve and may decrease postoperative cerebrospinal fluid leaks.. ...
