Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Fractures of the skull which may result from penetrating or nonpenetrating head injuries or rarely BONE DISEASES (see also FRACTURES, SPONTANEOUS). Skull fractures may be classified by location (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, BASILAR), radiographic appearance (e.g., linear), or based upon cranial integrity (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, DEPRESSED).
Skull Base Neoplasms
Neoplasms of the base of the skull specifically, differentiated from neoplasms of unspecified sites or bones of the skull (SKULL NEOPLASMS).
Skull Fracture, Depressed
A skull fracture characterized by inward depression of a fragment or section of cranial bone, often compressing the underlying dura mater and brain. Depressed cranial fractures which feature open skin wounds that communicate with skull fragments are referred to as compound depressed skull fractures.
Any discrete, presumably solitary, mass of neoplastic PLASMA CELLS either in BONE MARROW or various extramedullary sites.
The inferior region of the skull consisting of an internal (cerebral), and an external (basilar) surface.
Cranial nerve involvement in multiple myeloma and solitary plasmacytoma is rare. We report on two patients who developed cranial nerve palsy due to skull base plasmacytoma. Patient 1, a 55-year old ma...
Introduction:Solitary bone plasmacytoma is a rare haematological malignancy that can present in a variety of ways. This study aimed to present a case of plasmacytoma of the atlas, as a rare cause of u...
Extramedullary plasmacytoma is a rare malignant neoplasm typically arising outside the bone marrow of patients who show no clinical evidence of multiple myeloma. Kidney is a rare site for plasmacytoma...
Objective:We report an extremely rare case of extramedullary plasmacytoma.Method:Case report and review of the English-literature concerning extramedullary plasmacytoma and multiple myeloma.Result:We...
A 61-year-old man was diagnosed with the simultaneous occurrence of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and infiltrative intrathoracic plasmacytoma, radiologically mimicking bronchogenic carcinoma. Followi...
RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood and bone marrow in the laboratory from patients with monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance, multiple myeloma, or plasmacytoma may help doc...
Skull pin insertion during craniotomies is a brief, intensely stimulating, painful stimuli occurring during the conduct of a neurosurgical or spine anesthetic. Remifentanil is an ultra sho...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if proton beam therapy, with or without photon beam radiation therapy, is effective in the treatment of skull base chondrosarcoma. The...
Since Chiari malformation is a common disease, many patients require surgical operation to relieve pressure from the back portion of the skull. The purpose of this research is to compare t...
In PINOCCHIO-Triayl, carbon ion radiotherapy is compared to proton and advanced photon radiotherapy in patients with skull base meningiomas. There will be two treatment arms with photons,...
