Case Study
Intraventricular hemorrhage is a severe ictal event secondary to several pathological conditions (anticoagulation therapies, hypertension, post-surgical, traumatic, neoplastic, vascular malformations), leading to blockage of CSF flow and possible hydrocephalus, often justifying surgical intervention. We describe an uncommon source of intraventricular hemorrhage in a 54-year-old woman caused by a peripheral anterior choroidal artery aneurysm rupture.

    Summary. Background: Spontaneous intracranial haemorrhage is not common in infants, with differences from adults in both aetiology and severity. The infantile CNS is more vulnerable because of incomplete hydrovenous maturation. We analyzed infantile intracranial haemorrhage mainly caused by...

Methods: We compared the demographic and brain imaging characteristics of adults presenting with...

    Objective. The presence of cortical venous reflux is recognized as an indicator of increased risk of intracranial hemorrhage and neurological deficits in cranial dural arteriovenous fistulas. Its disconnection is well accepted as a treatment for fistulas with direct cortical reflux (Borden type...

    Summary. Procollagen propeptides in the lumbar CSF increase after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), and elevated concentrations have been detected as early as on day 8. We studied here the timing and localization of the induction of meningeal collagen synthesis during the first week after SAH by...

    The outcome of endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) is worse in children younger than 2 years old and especially in infants, and controversies still exist whether ETV might be superior to shunt placement in this age group. We retrospectively analyzed the data of 23 patients younger than 6...
