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.

For the microscopic surgery group, two, three, and seven cases were respectively subjected to total resection, subtotal ...
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.) DIAGNOSIS. MRI Scan is the most reliable and accurate neuroimaging procedure.. ...

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. Through him we trace the idealists descent into absolute despair ...

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).
