The Contribution of Susceptibility-weighted Imaging (SWI) in Occult Cerebral Vascular Malformations in Pediatric Patients

Neslin Sahin, Aynur Solak and Liya Alkılıc

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: May 26, 2015

Occult cerebral vascular malformations (CVM) include cerebral cavernous malformations (CCM), developmental venous anomalies, and cerebral capillary telangiectasias (CCT). Conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has low sensitivity in visualizing these angiographically invisible low-flow vascular lesions. Susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI), a novel high spatial resolution gradient echo MRI sequence with both phase and magnitude information, is exquisitely sensitive to blood products and ...

Right Sided Approach for a Pacemaker Insertion in the presence of Persistent Left Sided Superior Vena Cava: A Pacing Challenge

Edupuganti Mohan Mallikarjuna Rao, Hakan Paydak and Jawahar Mehta

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: May 25, 2015

Persistent Left sided superior vena cava is a rare congenital anomaly that can complicate a variety of cardiac procedures. We present a patient where a persistent superior vena cava was encountered unexpectedly during routine pacemaker insertion. The condition was diagnosed on the table and greatly lengthened the operating time. Given the situation and an absence of a pre procedure diagnosis the surgeon had to be innovative and invent approaches to navigate the complex anatomy on the spot....

Introduction: Perineural cysts, also known as Tarlov cysts, are benign cerebrospinal fluid-filled cysts of the spinal cord. They were first described by IM Tarlov in 1938. Case presentation: We describe a Tarlov cyst located in the cervical spine, a location quite rare in literature. The patient is a 44-year-old woman who presented with a 3-week history of radicular symptoms of the right C6 root. A perineural cyst was identified at the C5-6 level after Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the cervical ...

Meghan Berkenstock, Matthew Keisling, Jinglan Liu, Judy Mae Pascasio, Ayman Samkari, Prithvi Narayan, Melandee Brown, Erica Poletto, Christos D Katsetos and Myron Yanoff

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: June 01, 2015

Ependymomas constitute the third most common histological type of CNS tumor in children. Compared to classic cellular ependymoma (WHO grade II), anaplastic ependymoma is a more aggressive and less common subtype of ependymal neoplasm. We report a case of a supratentorial anaplastic ependymoma in a child presenting with a right sixth nerve palsy with bilateral papilledema. To our knowledge, the ophthalmic findings presented herein have not been previously reported in the context of this tumor typ...

Multimodal Imaging of Retinal Angiomatous Proliferation Showing Finger-Like Lesions of the Outer Retina

Shiraaz I Rahman, Mihai Mititelu and Rukhsana G Mirza

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: May 25, 2015

Retinal Angiomatous Proliferation (RAP) is a process that occurs in patients with Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) in which retinal capillaries proliferate and invade posteriorly into the choroid. RAP lesions have a characteristic appearance of finger like projections at the level of the outer retina which can resemble inflammatory neovascularization. This case report describes a patient with RAP who received consecutive intravitreal injections of aflibercept....

Rationing of Healthcare Services: An Economic Critique

Peter Zweifel

Article Type: Orginal Research | First Published: June 06, 2015

The starting point of this contribution is the fact that budgets imposed by health policy makers induce rationing, causing inefficiencies in the market for medical services. In addition, inefficiencies spill over into the market for health insurance. In a second step, rationing itself is explained as the outcome of supply and demand for regulation. It is shown that the mere existence of health insurance creates a demand for rationing that increases over time....
