Treatment fell into two general categories: (1) for lesions located adjacent to the dura or the tegmental area, such as those occurring in cases of extradural
abscess and sigmoid sinus thrombosis, a mastoidectomy was performed by an otologist; (2) when lesions were identified in less easily accessible areas, a craniotomy was performed by a neurosurgeon.
CT scanning shows a soft tissue extradural
mass with low attenuation.
The aim of this paper is to determine whether there are significant differences between TB spondylitis and neoplasia causing extradural
compression of the cord with regard to the anatomical distribution and compartmentalisation.
Of 108 patients with normal radiographs, MRI showed an extradural
soft tissue injury or ligamentous injury in 27.
The operative field is more extensive than that achieved with other approaches; it extends from the cerebellar hemisphere to the extradural
ventral upper cervical spine, and it provides access to tissue outside the spinal canal, such as the ventral strap muscles.
Effects of concentration of local anaesthetic drugs in extradural
Extracranial complications of acute otomastoiditis include mastoiditis with bone destruction, subperiosteal abscess, petrositis, facial nerve paralysis, and labyrinthitis; intracranial complications include meningitis, perisinus abscess, brain abscess, subdural abscess, extradural
abscess, lateral sinus thrombosis or thrombophlebitis, and otitic hydrocephalus.
Comparison of plain and alkalinized local anaesthetic mixtures of lignocaine and bupivacaine for elective extradural
In this article, we discuss the nonextended extradural
approach through the low temporal craniotomy described by House.
Comparative study of the effects of air or saline to identify the extradural
Computed tomography (CT) demonstrated a 4-cm osteolytic lesion of the right temporal bone and infratemporal fossa with intracranial but extradural
A 50-year-old head-injured patient with left bundle branch block and neurogenic pulmonary oedema scheduled for urgent re-exploration and evacuation of large extradural
haematoma developed broad complex ventricular tachycardia with hypotension five minutes after induction of anaesthesia.
