Five patients (4 male and 1 female) were observed to have capsular and thalamic infarction ascribed to descending transtentorial herniation (DTH) caused by head injury. A lucid interval immediately after the trauma and the presence of an epidural hematoma (EDH) characterized all five cases. At the time of hospitalization consciousness was seriously impaired and signs of cerebral herniation were apparent. Two to four days after the trauma, low attenuation in the computed tomography (CT) images pinpointed intracerebral damage in the anterolateral part of the thalamus and in the internal capsule on the same side as that of the EDH in three patients, and in the other two patients bilateral thalamic and capsular damage was noted. The low attenuation implicated the perforating arteries, that is the anterior thalamoperforating and anterior choroidal arteries, suggesting infarcted regions caused by occlusion of these arteries. Findings in the present study suggest that arterial occlusion in closed head injury
TY - JOUR. T1 - Thalamic gliomas. T2 - A clinicopathologic analysis of 20 cases with reference to patient age. AU - Nishio, S.. AU - Morioka, T.. AU - Suzuki, Satoshi. AU - Takeshita, I.. AU - Fukui, M.. PY - 1997/1/1. Y1 - 1997/1/1. N2 - Twenty patients (M 11, F 9; ranging from 1-77 years old) with histologically proven glial tumours in the thalamic region, treated from 1979 until 1994 at Kyushu University Hospital were retrospectively reviewed and analysed in order to elucidate their clinical and neuropathological characteristics. The initial common clinical manifestations were those of increased intracranial pressure or motor weakness. The histological diagnosis of the tumour was pilocytic astrocytoma in 2 patients, fibrillary astrocytoma in 7, anaplastic astrocytoma in 7, and glioblastoma multiforme in 4. The initial treatment was surgery alone in 4 patients, surgery followed by radiation therapy in 5, surgery followed by radiation therapy and chemotherapy in 9, and conventional radiation ...
From May 2011 to Aug 2015, 49 patients with thalamic gliomas underwent microsurgical resection, and received chemotherapy and radiotherapy postoperatively. The postoperative symptoms and complications were documented, and the overall survival (OS) and the progression-free survival (PFS) data were collected. The prognostic factors were evaluated by univariate and multivariate analyses. Finally, there was no perioperative death. Twenty cases, 24 cases and 5 cases were achieved subtotal resection (,90%), partial resection (70-90%) and less than partial resection (,70%) respectively. All patients pathological diagnosis was confirmed. The symptoms were improved in 32 cases, unchanged in 11 cases, and worsen in 6 cases. Postoperative complications were absent in 9 cases. The 6-month, 12-month, and 24-month OS were 71.4%, 38.9%, and 12.1% respectively; corresponding PFS were 66.6%, 27.1%, and 10.2% respectively. The median OS time and PFS time were 9.0 months (95% CI 6.9-11.1) and 9.0 months (95% CI ...
The biological basis for cancer is revolutionizing our understanding of what drives a normal cell to behave as a tumor cell. The regulation of that process has been broadly defined for some tumors of childhood (such as medulloblastoma and ependymoma). As a result these tumors are routinely being defined based on advanced molecular analysis and those results are now being
To our knowledge, this is the first report of global EEG voltage suppression associated with unilateral thalamic infarction in a neonate. The clinical presentation suggested a unilateral neonatal stroke involving the middle cerebral artery. Typical EEG characteristics of middle cerebral artery stroke include voltage reduction or sharp waves localized to the region of injury and intermittent seizures.[6] In many cases, sleep cycling is preserved. In unilateral perinatal stroke, the EEG may show asymmetry and asynchrony between hemispheres[7]; however, generalized EEG suppression has not previously been described.. This was a very different EEG pattern and atypical for perinatal stroke. Most worrying was the length of time that the EEG remained generally suppressed, i.e. 4 to 5 days. In term infants, the early postnatal EEG should show moderate voltage continuous mixed frequency activity with clear sleep cycling.[8] Sleep cycles emerged in this infant but were disrupted. In term newborn infants ...
Unless a thalamic tumor is diagnosed as a juvenile pilocytic astrocytoma (JPA), the outcome is expected to be poor. The duration of symptom resolution is somewhat dependent on the grade and growth pattern of the tumor. Bilateral growth that is defined on the MRI and a biopsy proven Grade III or IV tumor are poor prognostic indicators. (See Grading a Glioma.)

I suffered a second stroke nearly 2 weeks ago [on Dec.13th] this year. Another shock as I have been on the anti-platelet med. Clopidogrel 75mg since the first stroke on Feb 1st this year! So thought I would be ok. Nothings a 100% though is it .Is anyone here on this drug and is anyone now on Statins as well? I refused to take the statins after my first stroke because of the many and varied side effects they can cause, but I have been worried enough this time to take them. I am taking 20mg which is ½ of the normal starting dose of 40mg and Im taking plant sterols as well in the form of spreads. Yogourts and yogourt drinks to help reduce my cholesterol levels. My overall cholesterol reading when I was in hospital was 5, which I thought was a fairly good reading, but not according to my consultants in the hospital. I still worry about taking ststins because I have researched them online and every site says that they deplete the Coenzyme q10 in our bodies and this can lead to other problems as ...

Data regarding the frequency of isolated thalamic haemorrhage in the different hospital-based stroke registries are scarce, the present results show that thalamic haematomas is a subgroup of haemorrhagic stroke that accounted for 1.4% of all cases of stroke and 13% of intracerebral haemorrhages. The prevalence of thalamic haemorrhage in different series of primary intracerebral haemorrhage vary widely from 6% in the series of Juvela et al. [11] to 15.7% in the series of Tatu et al. [12]. In a subsample of 390 with haemorrhagic stroke reported by Kumral et al. [13], thalamic haemorrhage was diagnosed in 100 patients (25.6%).. Results of the present study show that patients with thalamic haemorrhage and patients with internal capsule-basal ganglia haemorrhage presented different clinical profiles, with sensory disturbances being significantly more frequent and speech disorders and lacunar syndrome being significantly less frequent in patients with thalamic haematoma. Prominent sensory loss, either ...

I picked her up, carried her to the first lobby of the OT and made her sit on a stretcher. Perhaps she sensed something- dread or fear. I dont know. She never could tell me later. But she clenched on to me tightly, trying to hold on to me and not letting go of my hand. The anaesthesiologist gently took Iras hand in hers and pushed a little of a pale yellowish solution in a syringe through the intracatheter. It was not as easy as it sounds. Ira kept struggling until her neck fell back and her body went limp with the sedative.. What I remember the most though are the tears which had welled up in Iras eyes. They ran down her cheek while she looked at me- may be helplessly, a little accusingly and full of fright. That image of Ira sitting on the stretcher, clutching my hand and crying while they pumped her body with the anaesthesia remains as vivid today. I wish I would have said, "Please cancel the surgery".. It was the longest that anyone of us have ever waited! We tried to be composed, each ...

This case represents 2 diagnostic challenges. First, the presentation of a patient who requires urgent multidisciplinary assessment to determine the cause of coma. Several neurological and non-neurological diseases must be considered in the differential diagnosis, including intracerebral and subaracnoidal hemorrhage, basilar artery occlusion, status epilepticus, brain trauma or neoplasm, sepsis, infection of the central nervous system, intoxication, hypo or hyperglycemia, and somatization. Bilateral paramedian thalamic infarcts, as detected on day 3, are a well-known cause for decreased consciousness. The second diagnostic challenge is determining the cause of infarction in a young otherwise healthy patient.1 Three-fifths of young patients remain without a clear cause for their stroke or have common conditions, such as PFO, which may or may not be associated with the event.2 Our patient had several conditions that have been associated with stroke, although no high risk factors. Ultimately, the ...

Results At final review (mean 5.2 years) PTR was evident in 11 of the 18 upper limbs with tremor. PTR often rendered stimulation redundant. PTR could occur when limb strength was conserved and could arise remotely from the initial surgery. PTR was significant (and universal) in limbs that received long-term (,2 years) effective (tremor suppressing) stimulation. PTR was not a significant finding in limbs that had not received long-term, effective stimulation. Contralateral to a limb with PTR, MRI revealed a thalamic lesion adjacent to the electrode tract. Thalamic lesions were not identified contralateral to two limbs without PTR. ...

Ocular flutter is a rare, horizontal eye movement disorder characterized by rapid saccadic oscillations. Previous reports have presented a relationship between ocular flutter syndrome and many conditions/diseases. However, it is surprising that there have been few reported cases in which there has been a clear anatomically localized lesion linked to ocular flutter. So the pathophysiological basis for ocular flutter syndrome is not understood yet. We have recently experienced a case of ocular flutter syndrome where the ocular flutter was associated with dysmetria, dysdiadochokinesia, kinetic predominant tremor, and ataxia. The prodromal symptoms, self-limited illness course and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pleocytosis of our case suggest an infectious aetiology for this syndrome. Although most of the sequelae of infectious diseases represent more diffuse involvement of the nervous system, the predominant cerebellar symptoms and signs associated with ocular flutter imply that the single responsible ...

In general, the invention provides a transurethral ablation device comprising an electrode for delivery of neurostimulation therapy to a patient to prevent or alleviate pain experienced during the course of a transurethral ablation procedure. The device may include a conductive ablation needle that delivers electrical current for ablation of prostate tissue, as well as neurostimulation current to prevent or alleviate pain encountered in response to the ablation current. In this sense, the ablation needle is integrated with a neurostimulation electrode. Alternatively, the device may incorporate a dedicated neurostimulation electrode independently of the ablation needle, either on the needle or on a catheter body that carries the needle.
UNLABELLED: The traditionally accepted form of training is direct supervision by an expert; however, modern trends in medicine have made this progressively more difficult to achieve. A 3-dimensional printer makes it possible to convert patients imaging data into accurate models, thus allowing the possibility to reproduce models with pathology. This enables a large number of trainees to be trained simultaneously using realistic models simulating actual neurosurgical procedures. The aim of this study was to assess the usefulness of these models in training surgeons to perform standard procedures that require complex techniques and equipment. METHODS: Multiple models of the head of a patient with a deep-seated small thalamic lesion were created based on his computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging data. A workshop was conducted using these models of the head as a teaching tool. The surgical trainees were assessed for successful performance of the procedure as well as the duration of time and

When the blood can not get into the part of the brain, the brain tissue in this area dies because it does not get oxygen.. In addition to blood clots, the dissection of arteries may also cause an ischemic stroke. Cutting the arteries is a tear in the artery that supplies blood to the brain.. As a result of tears, blood can accumulate in the arterial wall and cause blood flow obstruction. This pressure can also lead the wall to crack, crack or leak. Another type of stroke is a hemorrhagic stroke.. This happens when the weak blood vessel breaks, causing the blood and pressure in the brain to accumulate.. ...

Press Release issued Nov 21, 2014: Neurology is a study for diseases and disorders involved in nervous systems. It deals with diagnosis and treatment of diseases such as autonomic nerves system (ANS) and peripheral nervous system (PNS). A neurostimulation device is an electronic medical device, which delivers mild electronic signals to the epidural space near spine with the help of one or more thin wires. The electronic signal may cause itching sensation in the treated area. A neurostimulation device includes several components such as neurostimulator, leads, physician programmer and patients programmer. Neurostimulator generates electrical pulses to the epidural space near the spine.
CLINICAL HISTORY:. An 80-year-old man was transferred to our institution with worsening heart failure. His past medical history was significant for Type-2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, coronary artery disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, emphysema, chronic renal insufficiency and recurrent exacerbations of congestive heart failure. In addition, approximately 5 weeks prior to this admission, he presented at another institution with acute onset of left hemiplegia. Radiographic imaging at the time revealed a right thalamic lesion interpreted to represent acute ischemic changes. He received thrombolytic therapy but showed little improvement in neurological symptoms. He was transferred to a rehabilitation program but there also showed no improvement in neurological symptoms. While in rehabilitation, recurrent heart failure required hospitalization and transfer to this institution. His cardiopulmonary function improved with treatment, but his neurologic status remained unchanged until ...
