Cerebellar infarct caused by spontaneous thrombosis of a developmental venous anomaly of the posterior fossa. (1/258)

Spontaneous thrombosis of a posterior fossa developmental venous anomaly (DVA) caused a nonhemorrhagic cerebellar infarct in a 31-year-old man who also harbored a midbrain cavernous angioma. DVA thrombosis was well depicted on CT and MR studies and was proved at angiography by the demonstration of an endoluminal clot.  (+info)

Abnormal prenatal sonographic findings in the posterior cranial fossa: a case of Joubert's syndrome. (2/258)

Joubert's syndrome is a well-documented but rare disorder characterized by a variable combination of central nervous system, respiratory, renal and eye anomalies. The most significant and constant neuropathological finding is partial or complete agenesis of the cerebellar vermis. The syndrome was first described by Joubert and colleagues as a familial agenesis of the cerebellar vermis and appears to be inherited as an autosomal recessive trait. A case of Joubert's syndrome is described in which second-trimester ultrasonography demonstrated abnormal findings in the fetal posterior fossa with associated renal abnormalities. However, postnatal sonography of the posterior fossa could not confirm the prenatal findings, and the diagnosis of Joubert's syndrome was only later established by computed tomography of the neonatal brain in the knowledge of the characteristic clinical picture.  (+info)

Posterior fossa epithelial cyst: case report and review of the literature. (3/258)

A 49-year old woman with progressive cranial nerve signs and hemiparesis was found at MR imaging and at surgery to have a cyst at the foramen magnum. Immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy showed an epithelial cyst of endodermal origin. MR findings were of an extraaxial mass, with short T1 and T2 times. Unless immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy are used in the final diagnosis of such cysts, all posterior fossa cysts lined by a single layer of epithelium should be described simply as epithelial cysts.  (+info)

Magnetic resonance imaging supplements ultrasonographic imaging of the posterior fossa, pharynx and neck in malformed fetuses. (4/258)

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to compare antepartum ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the diagnosis and exclusion of malformations of the fetal neck, pharynx, skull base and posterior fossa in late pregnancy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study involved 26 women and 27 fetuses with ultrasonographically or clinically suspected abnormalities of the fetal neck, pharynx or central nervous system (CNS). Findings obtained by ultrasound were compared with those obtained by MRI (1.5 T) in the last trimester. RESULTS: In cases with CNS malformation (n = 19), MRI provided additional information on the anatomy of the foramen magnum and posterior fossa in nine cases (47%). When antepartum ultrasonography indicated malformation of the soft tissues of the neck or pharynx (n = 8), MRI provided additional information on diagnosis or exclusion of the abnormality in six cases (75%). The imaging capacity of the anatomy of the naso-, oro- and hypopharynx, trachea, esophagus and cervical skin outlines was better with MRI. CONCLUSIONS: MRI proved to be a valuable supplementary method to ultrasound in obtaining accurate information from the fetal neck, pharynx and posterior fossa, particularly when acoustic shadowing by bony structures or adjacent malformation impaired the quality of the ultrasonographic examination.  (+info)

Midline cerebellar cystic schwannoma : a case report. (5/258)

An extremely unusual case of a cystic schwannoma in the region of the inferior vermis and posterior to the fourth ventricle in a fifteen year old boy is reported. The cystic tumour caused partial obstruction to the outflow of cerebrospinal fluid from fourth ventricle and resulted in development of supratentorial hydrocephalus. On investigations, the schwannoma simulated a Dandy-Walker cyst. The boy presented with symptoms of increased intracranial pressure. On surgery, the lesion was not arising from any cranial nerve, nor was it attached to brain parenchyma, blood vessel or to the dura. The possible histogenesis of the cystic schwannoma in a rare location is discussed.  (+info)

Avulsion fracture of the anterior half of the foramen magnum involving the bilateral occipital condyles and the inferior clivus--case report. (6/258)

A 38-year-old male presented with an avulsion fracture of the anterior half of the foramen magnum due to a traffic accident. He had palsy of the bilateral VI, left IX, and left X cranial nerves, weakness of his left upper extremity, and crossed sensory loss. He was treated conservatively and placed in a halo brace for 16 weeks. After immobilization, swallowing, hoarseness, and left upper extremity weakness improved. Hyperextension with a rotatory component probably resulted in strain in the tectorial membrane and alar ligaments, resulting in avulsion fracture at the sites of attachment, the bilateral occipital condyles and the inferior portion of the clivus. Conservative treatment is probably optimum even for this unusual and severe type of occipital condyle fracture.  (+info)

Neurodevelopmental outcome after antenatal diagnosis of posterior fossa abnormalities. (7/258)

Posterior fossa abnormalities are sonographically diagnosable in the fetus. Anomalies of this region include Dandy-Walker malformation, enlarged cisterna magna, and arachnoid cyst. Despite prenatal diagnosis, the uncertainties related to natural history and neurodevelopmental outcome in survivors make patient counseling difficult. The purposes of this study were to determine the accuracy of prenatal diagnosis of these lesions and elucidate long-term neurodevelopmental outcome in survivors in prenatally diagnosed posterior fossa abnormalities. Fifteen cases of posterior fossa abnormalities were reviewed. Antenatal diagnoses of Dandy-Walker malformation was made in 13 of these cases, arachnoid cyst in one case, and enlarged cisterna magna in one case. Hydrocephalus was present in 66% of patients. The sonographic diagnosis was concordant with the pathologic or neonatal radiologic diagnosis in 13 of 15 cases. Seven fetuses (47%) exhibited additional cranial or extracranial anomalies. A karyotypic abnormality (trisomy 18) was found in one of 15 cases of posterior fossa abnormalities. Neurodevelopmental delay was present in 80% of survivors with follow-up study to 4 years of age. Prenatal diagnosis of posterior fossa abnormalities is highly accurate, yet the differential diagnosis can be challenging. Cognitive and psychomotor developmental delays remain commonplace despite early diagnosis and treatment. The approach with families in cases of prenatal diagnosis of posterior fossa abnormalities should include a search for additional central nervous system and extra-central nervous system anomalies in the fetus and counseling of parents regarding potential adverse outcome for survivors.  (+info)

Tumour type and size are high risk factors for the syndrome of "cerebellar" mutism and subsequent dysarthria. (8/258)

OBJECTIVE: "Cerebellar mutis" and subsequent dysarthria (MSD) is a documented complication of posterior fossa surgery in children. In this prospective study the following risk factors for MSD were assessed: type, size and site of the tumour; hydrocephalus at presentation and after surgery, cerebellar incision site, postoperative infection, and cerebellar swelling. METHODS: In a consecutive series of 42 children with a cerebellar tumour, speech and neuroradiological studies (CT and MRI) were systematically analysed preoperatively and postoperatively. Speech was assessed using the Mayo Clinic lists and the severity of dysarthria using the Michigan rating scale. RESULTS: Twelve children (29%) developed MSD postoperatively. The type of tumour, midline localisation, and vermal incision were significant single independent risk factors. In addition, an interdependency of possible risk factors (tumour>5 cm, medulloblastoma) was found. CONCLUSION: MSD often occurs after paediatric cerebellar tumour removal and is most likely after removal of a medulloblastoma with a maximum lesion diameter>5 cm.  (+info)

Aneurysms that involve the internal carotid artery and posterior communicating artery junction and incorporate a fetal posterior cerebral artery are known as fetal posterior communicating artery aneurysms. We report the outcomes of four patients with fetal posterior communicating artery aneurysms who underwent treatment with the pipeline embolization device with or without adjunctive coil embolization. In our study, all four patients failed to achieve aneurysm occlusion at the last follow-up evaluation. Based on our results, we currently do not recommend the use of the flow diverter for the treatment of fetal posterior communicating artery aneurysms.

BACKGROUND: The specificity of imaging alone in diagnosing posterior fossa lesions is insufficient, hence the importance of biopsy for diagnostic, therapeutic and prognostic purposes. Concerning the operative technique, many studies have demonstrated the superior safety of stereotactic biopsy over craniotomy and superior accuracy of frame-based systems over frameless ones as far as the posterior fossa is concerned; however versatile, frame-based instruments bear some intrinsic limitations in the positioning of frame in lower lesions mainly in short neck and kyphotic patients. For all these reasons, a more proficient technical bioptic approach to the posterior fossa and lower brainstem is sometimes required ...

CEREBELLAR ASTROCYTOMAS. Cerebellar Astrocytomas are one of the more common pediatric Brain tumors (10%), comprising 27% of pediatric Posterior Cranial Fossa tumors. They are much less common in adults. The post-operative survival is longer than other types of Astrocytomas. SYMPTOMS. The most frequent and almost universal symptom is Headache with or without Nausea and Vomiting (these latter symptoms usually occur later in the course of the disease when the intracranial pressure is abnormally increased.) In additional to all of the symptoms present in patients with increased intracranial pressure, tumors in the Posterior Cranial Fossa can cause Gait Disturbance, increased Clumsiness as well as Double Vision (Diplopia.)

The largest of all the cranial nerves, the trigeminal nerve gives rise to a small motor root originating in the motor nucleus within the pons and medulla oblongata, and a larger sensory root which finds its origin in the anterior aspect of the pons. The nerve travels forward from the posterior cranial fossa to the petrous portion of the temporal bone within the middle cranial fossa. Here, the sensory root forms the trigeminal (semilunar or gasserian) ganglion situated within Meckels cavity on the anterior surface of the petrous portion of the temporal bone. The ganglia are paired, one innervating each side of the face. The sensory root of the trigeminal nerve gives rise to the ophthalmic division (V1), the maxillary division (V2), and the mandibular division (V3) from the ...
Increased sensitivity of MR imaging of the brain has led to increased use of MR imaging to detect and assess malformations of the brain. Congenital malformations of the brain, including midline cerebral anomalies such as holoprosencephaly and posterior fossa anomalies, often are associated with venous anomalies (4-7). The venous system has been imaged with conventional angiography, but MR venography has increasingly been used to study the cerebral venous system. MR venography is noninvasive, does not involve ionizing radiation, and can be performed at the same time as MR imaging in comparatively short acquisition times. An understanding of the normal anatomy of the venous structure and its variations and the development of the venous system is crucial before studying the abnormal venous structure in malformations of the brain. Considerable data are available from conventional angiography studies regarding the intracranial veins and sinuses, but data regarding the capacity of MR venography in ...
Treat hydrocephalus:The first line of treatment is to treat hydrocephalus, as this is usually the cause of brainstem signs (1, 59). A smaller number of children will actually need posterior fossa decompression. The older literature reports a 15% mortality rate and a 30% rate of permanent neurological disability in infants who require posterior fossa decompression (32). Surgeons anecdotal (unpublished) data seem to suggest that these rates have diminished dramatically since paying more attention to the CSF shunts, regardless of ventricular size. ...

Dermoid cysts are benign and slow growing, and are usually located near midline within the posterior cranial fossa, parasellar, and sub frontal areas. Symptoms depend on the size, location, and mass effect on adjacent structures. Patients may present with visual disturbances, seizures, diabetes insipidus, or headache. Intraventricular dermoids are most commonly in the fourth ventricle and rarely cause hydrocephalus. Spontaneous rupture, as in this case, can incite a chemical meningitis, resulting in recurrent headaches or seizures. Although rare, the resultant meningeal inflammation can cause vasospasm, and even stroke and death. Traumatic rupture has also been reported. In addition to intracranial involvement, dermoid cysts may also be seen in the scalp, skull, orbit, spine, nasal/oral cavity, and neck. Ovarian (abdominal) dermoids are actually well-differentiated and organized teratomas ...
On magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ELSTs are generally seen as a heterogeneous mass with hyperintense foci in T1 and T2 sequences as a result of blood products, proteinaceous cysts or cholesterol clefts (Fig. 1-3) [2]. In large tumours - more than 2 cm - signal voids can be caused by vessels and calcifications, whereas these are less likely present in small tumours [4]. Contrast enhancement proves the hypervascular nature of the tumour. Inhomogeneity may be due to the enhancement of the solid portion, whereas calcific density within the lesion can be a result of intratumoural calcification or residual destroyed bone. ELSTs have a high predisposition to extend to the middle ear, cerebellopontine angle, and posterior cranial fossa [2 ...

In the Blakes 7 episode Gambit, Blake visits Freedom City while looking for Docholli, who may know the location of the Federations main computer system - Star One. While Blake, Jenna and Cally hunt for Docholli, Avon and Vila go gambling with the aid of Orac and make a profit of ten million credits. They get back to the ship just in time to conceal the money from Bake when he teleports back to Liberator.. With a fluid, long-armed grab, Avon snatched up the box of credits. "Quick, Vila. Set me down again.". Vilas jaw dropped. "What?" But he was already responding to Avons urgency by squeezing round to his position behind the teleport console.. "Blakes suspicious already; hell figure it out soon enough. I want our money off the ship and in a nice, safe bank.". "Finance for a bolt-hole?". Avon allowed a smile to flicker across his face. "Precisely. Orac, set co-ordinates for the Grammerian Bank.". Lights flickered on the console as Orac performed its usual electronic wizardry. Avon could ...

Upon graduating from Boot Camp on January 16, 2009, with the rank of Private First Class, Blake moved on to the SOI (School of Infantry) at Camp Geiger, NC. While there he was recognized for his use of novel strategies and tactics in leading his assault team in overtaking a position held by members of the instructor cadre. The surprised and dumbfounded instructors upon being overrun by Blakes team, asked where he had learned those techniques. Blakes reply was that he had devised them during his days of playing paintball and Navy Squeals (a takeoff on the movie Navy SEALS) with his cousins and friends. So impressed with his methods were the staff, that Blakes techniques are now taught to other Marines as part of the curriculum there. His demonstrated ...

And they had left, barely escaping with a barrage of plasma bolts damaging several of their energy banks. Dayna had called it luck, Tarrant claimed it was his skill. In any words, it had been too close.. But something kept nagging at Avon, telling him that he had to go back, he had to be certain that Vila was dead. It was stupid, of course. Sentiment could kill a man if he allowed it to, but Avon could not shake the feeling. So they had returned two months later and found Vila alive but not the same.. Who could be, after the carnage Avon and Cally saw? The wooded area where Rubins village had been was now nothing more than a blackened, twisted hole some three-quarters of a mile wide. How Vila had escaped from that defied Avons power of reason, but escape he had, though not unscathed. The burns testified to that.. Cally was scouting the area looking for any signs of life when Avon found the footprint. The mark was not left by a Federation boot, but the thought did not reassure Avon as he ...
As Idek, Blake plays a learned scholar who was Rabbi Schmidts best pupil ever. His performance is quiet, assured and sensitive, and ones eyes are riveted on this striking man as he is shorn of his hair and earthly possessions. Blakes dark and beautiful eyes are haunting in this memorable role. Who would have thought that the actor who played Edmund Bertram so capably in 2007s Mansfield Park would be so utterly convincing as a 1940s rabinical scholar? Blakes assessment of Idek is stark: "As one of the youngest and most idealistic characters, I think hes unusual in that, certainly at first, he represents a hope and genuine belief that somehow all will be well. Throughout the course of the day, however, as his whole identity is assaulted by losing his clothes, his possessions and his hair, he completely crumbles under the strain.

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. ...

A previously well 13 year old white school boy presented in October 1994 with a 2 month history of giddiness, dizziness, and morning headache associated with vomiting. Examination disclosed only bilateral papilloedema. Cranial CT showed an ill defined mass in the right cerebellar hemisphere, causing obstructive hydrocephalus. He was started on dexamethasone and underwent a posterior fossa craniotomy for total removal of a low grade astrocytoma. A left occipital ventricular drain was inserted and the dura was closed with Vicryl sutures. Surgery was uncomplicated, the external ventricular drain was removed a week later, and the patient was well on discharge. Ten days after discharge he developed headache, signs of meningism, and pyrexia. A lumbar puncture showed a CSF pressure of 20 cm, no red blood cells, 698 white cells/mm3 (66% polymorphs, 34% lymphocytes), protein of 0.82 g/l, CSF glucose of 2.3 mmol/l, and blood glucose of 5.1 mmol/l.

DISCUSSION The result that the major tumor types in the posterior fossa in children could be well differentiated in a neural network by simple MR imaging, MRS, and limited clinical data is surprising with so few cases on which to train. This potential difficulty in using neural networks for medical diagnosis has been noted by others as well.[2,3,9,13,14,19,31,32] Astion and Wilding[3] analyzed much of the medical diagnostic literature that used neural networks published prior to their study and found that 1) sample size is universally problematic; 2) there are only a few insights into optimizing a network or even estimating its appropriate size, and 3) there were few examples in which the neural network analysis had high predictive abilities (gt 85%). Wu, et al.,[31] found better than 90% accuracy in classifying microcalcification clustering in mammograms using 56 cases each in three categories with networks requiring 32 to 1024 inputs (for graphic data) and five to 15 hidden nodes. Their ...
Hemangioblastoma are the rarest central nervous system tumours, accounting for less than 2% 1), and 7-12% of posterior fossa lesions in adult patients. Hemangioblastomas usually occur in adults, yet tumors may appear in VHL syndrome at much younger ages. Men and women are approximately at the same risk. Within the CNS, the most common site is the posterior fossa where the tumor often forms a solitary nodule in the wall of a glial-lined cyst 2) 3). In Von Hippel Lindau disease the incidence of development of hemangioblastoma in cerebellum is 44-72%, in brain stem is 10-25%, and in spinal cord is 13-50% 4). About one-fourth of hemangioblastomas occur in patients with Von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL); the remainders are sporadic. Although extremely rare, solid hemangioblastomas outside the CNS have been reported, involving peripheral nerve 5) retroperitoneum 6) , soft tissue and bone 7) 8) 9) and visceral organs including the pancreas 10) , adrenals 11) 12) , liver 13) , and lung 14) 15).

Ischemic damage produced in the posterior cerebral territory causes significant morbidity and urgently must be considered if the patient need a surgical attitude. Surgical decompression by suboccipital craniectomy seams to be effective to treat secondary edema due to cerebellar damage or in posterior fossa, when medical treatment is not able to control side effects. We report a clinical case of a patient with a subacute ischemic infarction in the vertebro-basilar territory, with perilesional edema, and a posterior fossa decompressive craniectomy (DC) was carried out.
Authors: Panossian, Andre Article Type: Research Article Abstract: Facial paralysis remains a vexing problem in the treatment of posterior cranial fossa tumors in children. Fortunately, current techniques are available to reconstruct the paralyzed face in restoring balance, symmetry, and amelioration of functional sequelae. The restoration of structure and function of the paralyzed face is tantamount to proper social integration and psychosocial rehabilitation. In addition, the facial nerve is important in preventing drying of the eyes, drooling, and speech abnormalities, among other …functions. The most visible evidence of facial paralysis is stark asymmetry, especially with animation. This is perhaps the most troubling aspect of facial paralysis and the one that leads to the greatest amount of psychosocial stress for the child and family members. Management strategies include early and late intervention. Early reconstructive goals focus on preservation and strengthening of intact motor end ...
A 26-year-old man presented with signs of raised intracranial pressure. CT and MRI of the head demonstrated two separate lesions in the posterior fossa. The radiological differential diagnoses included multiple meningiomas, schwannomas, neurofibromas and subependymomas. Both lesions were surgically resected. Histopathological examination revealed localisations of a leptomeningeal melanocytoma. Leptomeningeal melanocytoma is a rare tumour of the central nervous system. Generally, it has a good prognosis if radical resection can be performed. In cases of subtotal resection, adjuvant radiotherapy should be considered. Local recurrences are common. Less frequently, leptomeningeal metastases and, on rare occasions, distant metastases or progression to malignant melanoma have been described. We describe an unusual case with multiple localisations of melanocytoma in the posterior fossa and spinal canal, with the emphasis being on the radiological findings and diagnosis of this rare tumour. After ...
Enhancing spinal subdural collections have been described in 15.5%-23% of children after posterior fossa surgery,7,9 but descriptions of associated factors and natural history have been limited due to sample size and follow-up limitations. In this study, we found PISC in 37 (15.2%) of 243 children imaged after posterior fossa surgery, similar to the 15.5% frequency described by Warmuth-Metz et al.9 PISC were associated with both intracranial subdural collections and tonsillar herniation. Although relief of increased intracranial pressure as evidenced by preoperative obstructive hydrocephalus has been suggested as a mechanism,9 we found no association of PISC with hydrocephalus either by subjective assessment or by the Evans index.10. PISC appeared as late as ,20 days postoperatively, resolved as early as 8 days after surgery, and had resolved in most (70.5%) subjects imaged up to 28 days after initial PISC+ MR imaging. The incidence of PISC is greatest, 36% in this series, within 1 week after ...

To answer these questions, a prospective study was begun with 364 patients. A database was created with family history; complete neurological exams and all radiographic findings were presented. Each patient had MRIs of the head and spine.. Measurements were made of all the structures of the posterior fossa. A quantitative measurement was done and then using a sophisticated technique of volume measurement they measured the volume of the posterior compartment, the volume of the cerebellar and brainstem tissues in the posterior compartment and the volume of the cerebrospinal fluid.. The patient study included 126 patients with Chiari Malformations only, and 238 Chiari patients with a syrinx. There was a 3 to 1 preference female over male. Many had lifelong complaints, but the age of onset was defined as the age when the patient first sought medical attention. The mean age was 25 years. Diagnosis was made at a mean age of 30 years.. 89 patients or of the study population could identify a ...

I would think you are quite right. Men are generally like what you say. There is nothing autistic about this and it is insufferable to have it described as so. Women are less orderly and tend to easy relations generally in my experience. Im not sure it is correct though to think of the extraordinary form as more manly. Obviously, it is restricted to the male and there is the order so in that sense yes, but the decorative aspects you could say are quite feminine, soft and exuberant. I think men and women are attracted to the older form because of its integrity. I do find it insulting to my sex when people classify the novus o as feminine. Is it not just a banal form that, while being valid and licit is nevertheless silly and men, being men are less likely to suffer it and for that reason they absent themselves. ...

Aidan Nichols OP is at pains to point out that Apostle are sent out to "preach to the nations" an English bishop reportedly said that his colleagues did not engage in battles they could not win, which certainly seems to make a mockery of any martyrs struggle, though in most cases "war" is not called for, just a lack of ambiguity and clear teaching. Their failure seems to be that by not engaging in a any struggle they can so often appear to have nothing to say to anyone, even those who listen to them carefully, their own people. It is worth considering how the French bishops have gained considerable respect by actively becoming involved in the marriage debate, even the Irish bishops have earned a some credibility in their teaching on abortion. Pope Francis hasnt yet engaged in "war" but he has offered sharp and focussed criticism of the ills of contemporary society, often by contrasting the minds of politicians with simple clear and unambiguous Gospel imperatives ...

There is no difference between the sexes when it comes to an exaggerated temporal fossa depression. Even though I have treated only one woman with a significant indentation, I believe strongly that a deeply concave or inwardly curved space has nothing to do with gender. Whether you are a man or a woman, a pronounced hollow just behind your lateral orbital rims, the bony ridges to the side of your eyes, can have a significant effect on your facial aesthetics. This hollow can make you appear starving when you are well fed. Although the majority of the people dont have a temporal fossa depression that merits attention, it is not an uncommon occurrence. ...

Background: Posterior fossa decompression with expansive duraplasty is the first-line surgical approach for the treatment of symptomatic syringomyelia associated with Chiari malformation. Despite good decompression, the clinical failure rate is reported to be up to 26%. A syringosubarachnoid (S-S) shunt may be used as a secondary option. Methods: In this paper we describe a single-institution experience of three cases of holocord syringomyelia-Chiari complex treated with foramen magnum decompression, expansive duraplasty and an S-S shunt carried out in a single- stage single approach. Following a standard suboccipital craniectomy, patients were submitted to syrinx fenestration and simultaneous insertion of an S-S shunt through a 1-mm posterior midline myelotomy at the C2 level prior to expansive dural reconstruction. Results: Postoperative imaging showed immediate reduction of the holocord cavities. Preoperative neurological deficits rapidly improved significantly and were stabilized at ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Management of Chiari malformations. T2 - opinions from different centers-a review. AU - Hersh, David S.. AU - Groves, Mari. AU - Boop, Frederick A.. PY - 2019/1/1. Y1 - 2019/1/1. N2 - Purpose: Surgical decision-making in Chiari malformation type I (CM-I) patients tends to depend on the presence of neurological signs and symptoms, syringomyelia, and/or scoliosis, but significant variability exists from center to center. Here, we review the symptoms of CM-I in children and provide an overview of the differences in opinion regarding surgical indications, preferred surgical techniques, and measures of outcome. Methods: A review of the literature was performed to identify publications relevant to the surgical management of pediatric CM-I patients. Results: Most surgeons agree that asymptomatic patients without syringomyelia should not undergo prophylactic surgery, while symptoms of brainstem compression and/or lower cranial nerve dysfunction warrant surgery. Patients between these ...
Objectives: The goal of this study is to establish family pedigrees and undertake genetic linkage analysis that will identify gene loci associated with the Chiari I malformation and underdevelopment of the bone forming the posterior cranial fossa.. Study Population: Patients and family members of patients with the Chiari I malformation. Because the research institutions are located in the United States and Russia, subjects will be recruited predominantly from these countries.. Design: Human subjects will undergo 1) neurologic examinations, 2) head and cervical MRI scans to evaluate for the Chiari I malformation, syringomyelia, and maldevelopment of the posterior fossa, and 3) isolation and analysis of genomic DNA from whole blood for linkage analysis.. Outcome Measures: Pedigrees will be established based on the MRI findings. The Chiari I phenotype will be defined as the caudal portion of the cerebellar tonsils lying greater than or equal to 2 mm below the foramen magnum and underdevelopment of ...
Imae S. Department of Neurological Surgery, Wakayama Medical College, Japan. Etiology of syringomyelia associated with Chiari type I malformation has been unknown. Moreover, the surgical procedure of foramen magnum decompression for this type of syringomyelia has not been standardized yet. No one procedure has been always successful, leading to many alternative procedures. The purpose of the present study is to elucidate pathway of cerebrospinal fluid into the syrinx cavity and to find out the best procedure for this disease. Forty two patients with syringomyelia associated with Chiari type I malformation, which were diagnosed with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), underwent surgical treatment. In all patients, craniocervical junction anomalies, cervical disc herniation and other spinal diseases were ruled out. There were 26 men and 16 women, ranging from 6 to 72 (mean: 42.3) years in age. The size, length and position of upper end of each syrinx cavity and the degree of the tonsillar herniation ...
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:. ...

I also suffer from Chiari 1. I get injections in my head cortizone and something else mixed with it. I get them injected in the suboptical nerve. This has helped me with my headaches. I get headaches really bad to the pt where it immobilizes me for up to 7 days straight. I mean to the pt of doing nothing but getting up to get something to drink and go to the bathroom. I feel these injections do work. I have been getting them off and on for about 3 yrs. Its not a cure by all means but something that helps me alot. Ck with your nuerosurgeon to see if u can get what they call a nerve block. Im telling u it helps It has helped me a great deal. Not just one is gonna work u will have to continue to get them every three months till u dont have to get them as often. I have noticed a great improvement. I have had 2 decompression surgeries. Last one was in 2004 but this time they put in metal rods and fused my neck. Hope this helps out a bit. ...
The most common surgical procedure performed for Arnold-Chiari Malformation is known as posterior fossa decompression where the surgeon will remove a small portion of the bone behind the skull to make more room for the brain to expand an thus relieving the pressure from the brain. The surgeon may also remove a part of the spinal column to relieve pressure being put on the spinal cord. As is the case with all surgical procedures, there are inherent risks in this surgery as well to include risks of infection, accumulation of fluid in the brain, CSF leakage, and delayed wound healing. Almost all of the symptoms of Arnold-Chiari Malformation are relieved after successful completion of the surgery but in case of there is a nerve injury in the spinal cord then surgery may not be able to reverse the damage already done. Postprocedure, the patient will require regular checkups in the form of serial MRIs and other imaging tests to look at the status of the brain and spinal cord and check the status of ...
flagallery gid=30 name=Gallery] POST-SURGERY UPDATE: Blake is doing so well. He is romping and playing, and his foster family is amazed at how quickly he has recuperated! A wonderful, curious little puppy!. Blakes story: When we got Blake out of the shelter we were told he had a heart murmur. We took him to the vet and it turns out he has some congenital valve defects that should have been repaired when he was 3-4 months old but that were never corrected. Due to these leaky valves, there is a serious amount of fluid gathering in his lungs, and causing potential damage to his heart muscle. Blake needs surgery to relieve the pressure on his heart and to fix the valves.. Please help us to pay for Blakes medical care by sponsoring Blake. Any amount will help, just press the donate button below. Thank you for giving your heart to Blake and Much Love!. ...

Acute inflammation of a single cerebellar hemisphere (hemicerebellitis) is a rare disorder of unknown origin. The clinical presentation is mainly characterized by headache, ataxia, dysmetria, and vomiting. In addition, some children may develop severe intracranial hypertension. The neuroimaging of hemicerebellitis raises a challenging differential diagnosis, particularly with posterior fossa tumours. Although there is no standard treatment for hemicerebellitis, its outcome is usually favourable. However, ipsilateral hemicerebellar atrophy develops in up to half of cases, and a minority of children may show persisting fine motor and/or neurocognitive sequelae. In this article, we contribute with three new reports and review a total of 35 cases of hemicerebellitis. (C) 2014 European Paediatric Neurology Society. Published by Elsevier Ltd.

Chiari-like malformation (CM) and syringomyelia (SM) is a frequent diagnosis in predisposed brachycephalic toy breeds since increased availability of MRI. However, the relevance of that MRI diagnosis has been questioned as CM, defined as identification of a cerebellar herniation, is ubiquitous in some breeds and SM can be asymptomatic. This article reviews the current knowledge of neuroanatomical changes in symptomatic CM and SM and diagnostic imaging modalities used for the clinical diagnosis of CM-pain or myelopathy related to SM. Although often compared to Chiari type I malformation in humans, canine CM-pain and SM is more comparable to complex craniosynostosis syndromes (i.e., premature fusion of multiple skull sutures) characterized by a short skull (cranial) base, rostrotentorial crowding with rostral forebrain flattening, small, and ventrally orientated olfactory bulbs, displacement of the neural tissue to give increased height of the cranium and further reduction of the functional ...
Hello Everyone, I started off having pain in my legs and feet. Then I was diagnose with a chiari malformation type 1 because I was experiencing headache, had a mri done which the surgeon said was not nothing to worry about 4 months later I was having surgery. The day after the surgery he came to see me I told him I felt a lot of pressure. I was sent home and during recovery I notice a pocket of csf which it took awhile to go away. About a week after that I started getting dizzy spells and then

Findings: The ventricles are normal in size & position. There is no midline shift, mass effect, hemorrhage or abnormal enhancements. Parenchymal signal is normal. Midline structures and posterior fossa are unremarkable. Vascular flow-voids are normal. Mastoid air cells and paranasal sinuses are well-aerated. There is prominent CSF along the coronal sutures bilaterally, slightly larger on the right. There is no associated signal abnormality or enhancement. This is presumably a normal anatomic variant and is unlikely to represent a focal pathologic process ...
