Meningiomas are the second commonest intracranial tumours in many places worldwide. It is however rare in the paediatric age group and most studies have been able to document only a few patients. Meni...
Meningiomas belong to the most common intracranial neoplasms in adults. One of the most common symptoms patients with meningioma experience is seizures. However, it remains unclear whether prophylacti...
Intracranial Hemangiopericytomas (IHP) are dural based tumors that frequently recur/metastasize. Unfortunately, their imaging appearance overlaps significantly with more benign meningiomas. We evaluat...
Intraventricular meningiomas are rather rare and only represent a small proportion of all intracranial meningiomas. Data are still limited toward this peculiar entity and surgical resection remains ch...
Although rare, spinal meningiomas may cause motor and sensory deficits or difficulty with bladder or bowel function due to spinal cord compression. While hemorrhage of intracranial meningiomas is well...
This is a prospective observational trial consisting of robotic multisession radiosurgery (CyberKnife ®) for large and medium size and/or located at critical site benign intracranial meni...
The objective of this proposal is based on the assumption that the HIV infected Ethiopian population responded in a different way in comparison to the Caucasian subjects to Lopinavir thera...
RATIONALE: Interferon alfa may interfere with the growth of cancer cells. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of interferon alfa in treating patients with recurrent unresec...
Meningiomas with malignant components include grade II meningiomas (GIIM, the most common ones) and grade III meningiomas (GIIIM). They represent 5-35% of all meningiomas. Histological dia...
The blood loss will be compared in middle fossa meningiomas which will receive pealing of the outer layer of the lateral wall of the cavernous sinus and those which will not revive pealing...
An autosomal dominant disorder characterized by a high incidence of bilateral acoustic neuromas as well as schwannomas (NEURILEMMOMA) of other cranial and peripheral nerves, and other benign intracranial tumors including meningiomas, ependymomas, spinal neurofibromas, and gliomas. The disease has been linked to mutations of the NF2 gene (GENES, NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 2) on chromosome 22 (22q12) and usually presents clinically in the first or second decade of life.
Undergraduate medical education programs for second- , third- , and fourth-year students in which the students receive clinical training and experience in teaching hospitals or affiliated health centers.
Bleeding into the intracranial or spinal SUBARACHNOID SPACE, most resulting from INTRACRANIAL ANEURYSM rupture. It can occur after traumatic injuries (SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE, TRAUMATIC). Clinical features include HEADACHE; NAUSEA; VOMITING, nuchal rigidity, variable neurological deficits and reduced mental status.
Intracranial or spinal cavities containing a cerebrospinal-like fluid, the wall of which is composed of arachnoidal cells. They are most often developmental or related to trauma. Intracranial arachnoid cysts usually occur adjacent to arachnoidal cistern and may present with HYDROCEPHALUS; HEADACHE; SEIZURES; and focal neurologic signs.

Self evaluation of whole blood glucose levels outside the clinical laboratory. A digital or battery-operated reflectance meter may be used. It has wide application in controlling unstable insulin-dependent diabetes.
