BACKGROUND: The expanded endonasal approach of the cranio-cervical junction provides comfortable working space while avoiding some of the disadvantages of the transoral route. We report a purely endonasal endoscopic resection of the odontoid process for basilar invagination in a patient with a Chiari type I malformation, without posterior decompression or fusion. CASE REPORT: A 54-year-old female patient presented with cranial nerve and brainstem deficits. CT and MRI showed a Chiari type I malformation and compression of the medulla by basilar invagination of the odontoid process. The tip of the latter was displaced up to the bulbo-pontine sulcus. The odontoid process was resected via the expanded endoscopic endonasal approach, without additional posterior decompression or fusion. The post-operative course was uneventful, including the absence of velopharyngeal insufficiency. Neurological deficits regressed rapidly. The preoperative cervical pain virtually disappeared. At 9 months follow-up, the patient had normal activity with minimal residual neurological deficits. Post-op dynamic radiography and CT showed stability of the cranio-cervical junction. CONCLUSION: Decompression of the bulbomedullary junction by purely endoscopic transnasal resection of the odontoid process is well tolerated and efficient. Immediate stabilization is not mandatory in all cases of congenital causes of basilar invagination. [less ▲]

We describe a misleading case of a partially occluded A1 segment duplication that mimicked an ACoA aneurysm on computed tomography angiography and conventional angiography and led to surgical intervention. The location of such an anomaly at the ACoA on the side of least hemodynamic stress may provide a clue to recognizing this variant. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The clinical picture of hand atrophy related to a cervical rib or elongated C7 transverse process was well described in the modern literature by Gilliatt and Sumner; in 1970, they reported a series of nine patients whose motor status was stabilized following brachial plexus decompression. We report here seven patients suffering from thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS), who developed hand atrophy, sometimes because of diagnostic delay. METHODS: The patient's charts were analysed retrospectively. RESULTS: The seven patients were all female; the mean age was 43 years. The first complaints were arm pain and paresthesias lasting six months to 5 years. Three patients were treated with C56/C67 discectomy plus disc prosthesis (one patient), ulnar neurolysis at the elbow (the same patient), carpal tunnel release (one patient), and intravenous immunoglobulins (one patient) before TOS diagnosis. Hand atrophy, severe in five patients, was present at presentation. All patients underwent brachial plexus decompression by the anterior (four), posterior (two), or transaxillary (one) approach. This last approach was completed 18 months later by brachial plexus neurolysis via the anterior approach. Postoperatively, motor deficit was improved in two patients and stabilized in five patients. CONCLUSIONS: Physicians' unfamiliarity with TOS diagnosis or their reluctance to accept the diagnosis without electrical confirmation can lead to hand atrophy. Brachial plexus decompression at this stage usually stabilizes the deficit. [less ▲]

Intraventricular hemorrhage is common after the rupture of anterior communicating artery (ACoA) aneurysms, although the anatomical pathway has not been described. Knowledge of the mechanism of hemorrhage may enhance understanding of its prognosis. Using CT angiography, the authors analyzed this pathway in 2 cases of ACoA aneurysm rupture associated with intraventricular hemorrhage. The initial hemorrhages created a hyperdense ventriculographic image on which the subsequent contrast medium ejection could be followed. The contrast medium entered the subarachnoid space of the anterior interhemispheric fissure and broke through the lamina rostralis into the septum pellucidum and into the frontal horns of the lateral ventricles. Thus, the authors provide an explanation for bleeding from ACoA aneurysms into the ventricular system in the presence of an intact lamina terminalis. The septum pellucidum may act as a buffer before extension of the bleeding into the ventricular system. [less ▲]

L'encéphalocèle orbitaire aigu traumatique est une entité rare. Selon Pubmed moins de 25 cas ont été raportés. Nous présentons le premier cas d'encéphalocèle post-traumatique bilatéral provoqué par une fracture enfoncement du toit de l'orbite. Un traitement rapide est nécessaire pour éviter l'hypertension intra-orbitaire qui peut être responsable de lésions dégénératives du nerf optique. La réparation du toit de l'orbite nécessite une reconstruction rigide pour éviter la transmission de variations de la pression intra-crânienne. Dans le cas rapporté, la reconstruction du toit de l'orbite a été effectuée par voie crânienne sous-frontale à l'aide d'un mélange de poudre d'os à la colle biologique soutenu par un treillis en titane fixé avec des vis [less ▲]

La rencontre d'une dystonie, que ce soit en tant que symptôme entrant dans un cadre nosologique plus large ou en tant qu’anomalie isolée, n’est pas exceptionnelle en pratique clinique. La dystonie peut se produire à tous âges de la vie. Un diagnostic précis est important afin d’optimiser la prise en charge de ces affections souvent chroniques et invalidantes. Les divers examens complémentaires devront inclure la résonance magnétique nucléaire, incontournable dans le diagnostic et le suivi des patients dystoniques. Nous présentons ici un aperçu des troubles dystoniques les plus fréquents et des solutions thérapeutiques appropriées, ainsi qu’une proposition de classification afin d’en simplifier le diagnostic.

Cerebral venous thrombosis is a rare cause of stroke. Clinical presentation is not very specific and can be very variable. Imaging establishes the diagnosis in the majority of cases. Specially, magnetic resonance venography has high sensitivity and is presently the gold standard. Long term prognosis of cerebral venous thrombosis is generally good and few patients remain handicapped in the long term. Evolution is however unpredictable. Treatment strategies follow three axes: anti-thrombotic treatment, symptomatic measures and treatment of the cause if one is found. [less ▲]
