    One of the most important prognostic factors in brain tumours is the extent of tumour resection. Its evaluation has been difficult on computed tomography (CT); however, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can clearly determine the extent of tumour resection. Using MRI, we analyzed 77 patients with...

  • Are multiple acute small subcortical infarctions caused by embolic mechanisms? Norrving, B. // Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry;Oct2004, Vol. 75 Issue 10, p1375 

    The article discusses whether multiple acute small subcortical infarctions are caused by embolic mechanisms. It states that according to conventional teaching, an acute ischaemic stroke is characterised by infarction confined to a single localised region of the brain. However, new neuroimaging...

    Background. The authors have conducted a prospective study to evaluate the amount and course of brain shift during microsurgical removal of supratentorial cerebral lesions, and to assess factors which potentially influence these shifts.Method.In 61 patients the displacement of 2-3 cortical...

    The curative treatment for patients with insulinoma is the surgical removal of the tumour; however, these tumours are small and therefore their preoperative localisation using ultrasound and CT scans may be difficult. Intraoperative serum insulin measurements were used as an aid to the surgical...
