  • Update on endoscopic endonasal resection of skull base meningiomas. [Journal Article]
    Int Forum Allergy Rhinol. 2015 Apr; 5(4):344-52.Brunworth J, Padhye V, … Wormald PJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Using a 2-team approach, meningiomas of the skull base were successfully removed via an intranasal endoscopic technique. Although complete resection is typically possible even with large tumors, the lengthy resection required time for tumors larger than 60 cm(3) (diameter ≥4 cm) may obviate some of the advantages of this approach. The rate of postoperative CSF leak decreases when a synthetic dural substitute is added but does not approach zero.
  • Endoscopic endonasal resection of anterior skull base meningiomas. [Journal Article]
    Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 2012 Sep; 147(3):575-82.Padhye V, Naidoo Y, … Wormald PJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: ACF meningiomas can be safely removed endonasally, offering significant advantages over the traditional transcranial approach for suitable tumors. Early audit of this approach shows results achieved by this unit are comparable with the published literature.
  • Sectional anatomy of the olfactory pathways. [Journal Article]
    J Neurosurg Sci. 2010 Mar; 54(1):39-44.Chen CC, Huang F, … Zang CS
  • CONCLUSIONS: The olfactory bulb and olfactory tract lay tightly on the ethmoidal cribriform plate and jugum sphenoidale, in the olfactory cistern of the shallow part of the olfactory sulcus, the ethmoid sinus and sphenoid sinus inferiorly.
  • The anatomy and systematic position of the early Miocene proconsulid from Meswa Bridge, Kenya. [Journal Article]
    J Hum Evol. 2009 May; 56(5):479-96.Harrison T, Andrews P
  • A small collection of fossil catarrhines was recovered from the early Miocene locality of Meswa Bridge in western Kenya between 1978 and 1980. The associated fauna from Meswa Bridge indicates an age older than 20 Ma. Much of the material has been briefly described previously, and its taxonomic status considered. The material can be assigned to a minimum of four individuals, all of which are infan…
  • Acromegaly due to a growth hormone-releasing hormone-secreting intracranial gangliocytoma. [Case Reports]
    J Endocrinol Invest. 2005 Feb; 28(2):162-5.Isidro ML, Iglesias Díaz P, … Cordido F
  • In more than 95% of cases acromegaly is due to GH hypersecretion by a pituitary adenoma. GHRH hypersecretion accounts for about 0.5% of cases of acromegaly. Intracranial GHRH-secreting tumors are extremely rare and only a few well-documented cases have been reported. The clinical features of acromegaly due to intracranial GHRH-secreting tumor are indistinguishable from those of other patients wit…
  • The sequence in appearance and disappearance of impressiones gyrorum cerebri and cerebelli. [Journal Article]
    Coll Antropol. 2004 Dec; 28(2):849-55.Grgurević L, Vinter I, … Krmpotić-Nemanić J
  • We investigated the sequence and the intensity in the appearance and the disappearance of the impressiones gyrorum cerebri and cerebelli, of juga cerebralia and cerebellaria and of juga cerebellaria interlobularia in the collection of 34 macerated and disarticulated skull bones from the newborn to 30 years of age (68 specimens/halves of skulls) and 19 skulls in the period from 30 to 80 years of a…
  • Ossifying fibroma of the jugum sphenoidale. [Journal Article]
    J Clin Neurosci. 2004 Jun; 11(5):544-6.Garrott HM, Wallace D, Wallace DJ
  • We report a rare case of an eight year old boy with an ossifying fibroma of the jugum sphenoidale who presented with rapid onset bilateral blindness. This benign tumour was initially debulked and required re-operation with decompression of both optic nerves due to progressive visual deterioration. Post-operatively, there was good visual recovery in the left eye, but visual acuity in the right eye…
  • Giant pituitary adenomas: role of radiotherapy. [Journal Article]
    Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys. 1993 Mar 15; 25(4):677-81.Fisher BJ, Gaspar LE, Noone B
  • Between 1970 and 1989, 31 patients with a diagnosis of giant pituitary adenoma were referred to the London Regional Cancer Center. Giant pituitary adenoma was defined in terms of extension in excess of 40 mm from the midpoint of the jugum sphenoidale. The diagnosis was made surgically in 30 patients and clinically in one. Tumor extent and dimensions were obtained from operative reports and/or rad…
  • Diencephalic epilepsy with congenital suprasellar arachnoid cyst in an infant. [Case Reports]
    Childs Nerv Syst. 1988 Aug; 4(4):252-4.Giroud M, Sautreaux JL, … Dumas R
  • The authors report the case of a 2-year-old infant who presented with paroxysm and short changes characterized by acute drowsiness, cold sweats, ocular reversion, facial cyanosis, and bradycardia. Between these attacks, the condition was normal, suggesting diencephalic seizures. Over 2 months five fits were observed by the parents when some to-and-fro bobbing of the head onto the trunk appeared d…
  • [The fronto-supra-ethmoidal approach. Its value in cerebrospinal rhinorrhea]. [Journal Article]
    Ann Otolaryngol Chir Cervicofac. 1984; 101(1):47-52.Bremond G, Magnan J, … Dubus K
  • A supra-ethmoidal approach was used to treat cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea secondary to anterior fractures of the base of the skull. After an internal orbital incision, the anterior wall of the frontal sinus is removed and the posterior wall of this sinus trephined in the internal region of its horizontal portion in order to expose the meninges covering the roof of the first ethmoidal space. Dis…
  • [Note on the variability of the basicranial axes]. [Journal Article]
    Bull Assoc Anat (Nancy). 1978 Sep; 62(178):325-31.Olivier G
  • On 114 lateral radiographies of skulls, we looked for the best basicranial axis, i.e. the least variable, the most stable. One should discard the foramen magnum plane (too variable due to the basion lack of precision); the same is true for the axes passing through the sellion point, because the Sella turcica center is situated relatively lower in women and in toothless persons (at least in our se…
  • [Morphologic anatomy of the interjugochiasmatic fenestra]. [Journal Article]
    Bull Assoc Anat (Nancy). 1976 Dec; 60(171):747-56.Mestdagh H, Bacqaert JP, … Depreux R
  • The pituitary body can be surgically approached through the triangular cleft limited by the sphenoidal jugum and the anterior side of the optic chiasma. The mean surface was calculated by measurements on 51 specimens; it reached 65 mm2. The ratio height : width of the cleft attained 1,3-1,4 corresponding to an anterior chiasmatic angle of about 66-70 degrees. With regard to the variations of the …
