Syphilis produces myriad nonspecific signs and symptoms. For example, optic disk swelling might be seen in patients with syphilis as a result of cranial hypertension (papilloedema), inflammatory optic...
Horner's Syndrome (HS) with brachial plexus involvement following lumbar epidural anesthesia may be a startling event for the patient and providers. We present a case of Horner's Syndrome and complete...
Diagnosing cerebral sinus venous thrombosis (CSVT) manifested as a spontaneous subdural hematoma (SDH) is challenging due to variability of its clinical features. The neuroradiological investigation i...
Off-target [F]flortaucipir (tau) PET binding in the choroid plexus causes spill-in into the nearby hippocampus, which may influence the correlation between [F]flortaucipir binding and measures of cogn...
Choroid plexus carcinoma (CPC) is a rare intraventricular neoplasm originating from choroid plexus. CPC is the most aggressive choroid plexus tumor. Almost all the CPCs are detected in children and th...
To determine the postoperative analgesic efficiency of bilateral superficial plexus block, patients are divided into two groups. Study group received bilateral superficial plexus block, wh...
To compare efficacy and safety between bilateral superficial cervical plexus block combined with intravenous sedation (RA group) and general anesthesia (GA group) for thyroid and parathyro...
This study evaluates the effects of Horner's syndrome on cardiac autonomic nervous activity after interscalene brachial plexus block. Cardiac autonomic nervous activity and bilateral pupil...
Patients who underwent bilateral bifocal or trifocal lenses implantation for presbyopia correction with monofocal intraocular lenses implantation are supposed to have sufficient uncorrecte...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the influence of difference positioning on extension and efficacy of brachial plexus anesthesia at 20 minutes by using the axillary plexus block...
A complex network of nerve fibers in the pelvic region. The hypogastric plexus distributes sympathetic fibers from the lumbar paravertebral ganglia and the aortic plexus, parasympathetic fibers from the pelvic nerve, and visceral afferents. The bilateral pelvic plexus is in its lateral extent.
The large network of nerve fibers which distributes the innervation of the upper extremity. The brachial plexus extends from the neck into the axilla. In humans, the nerves of the plexus usually originate from the lower cervical and the first thoracic spinal cord segments (C5-C8 and T1), but variations are not uncommon.
A usually benign neoplasm that arises from the cuboidal epithelium of the choroid plexus and takes the form of an enlarged CHOROID PLEXUS, which may be associated with oversecretion of CSF. The tumor usually presents in the first decade of life with signs of increased intracranial pressure including HEADACHES; ATAXIA; DIPLOPIA; and alterations of mental status. In children it is most common in the lateral ventricles and in adults it tends to arise in the fourth ventricle. Malignant transformation to choroid plexus carcinomas may rarely occur.

Benign or malignant tumors which arise from the choroid plexus of the ventricles of the brain. Papillomas (see PAPILLOMA, CHOROID PLEXUS) and carcinomas are the most common histologic subtypes, and tend to seed throughout the ventricular and subarachnoid spaces. Clinical features include headaches, ataxia and alterations of consciousness, primarily resulting from associated HYDROCEPHALUS.

Embolism or thrombosis involving blood vessels which supply intracranial structures. Emboli may originate from extracranial or intracranial sources. Thrombosis may occur in arterial or venous structures.
