Since ischemic stroke regions are generally adjacent to the brain ventricle with similar intensity, it is a challenging task to segment ventricle.
Laura feared her baby might not survive the birth, or may face major surgery, but as her pregnancy progressed Bella's kidneys developed and went back to the normal range, the hole in her heart was only 1mm so not considered a problem and the brain ventricle stayed only slightly over the cut-off.
The experts found those who slept fewer hours showed evidence of faster brain ventricle enlargement, which is a sign of cognitive decline and increased risk of dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
Though faster brain ventricle enlargement is a marker for cognitive decline and the development of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's, the effects of sleep on this marker have never been measured.
This may be related with enlarged brain ventricle and intrauterine polyhydramniosis (6).
Specific topics include charge-selective claudin channels, dynamic properties of the tight junction barrier, the regulation of tight junction in human normal pancreatic duct epithelial cells and cancer cells, diverse types of junctions containing tight junction proteins in stratified mammalian epithelia, and the involvement of claudins in zebrafish brain ventricle morphogenesis.
Following third brain ventricle injection of cytomegalovirus (CMV)-green fluorescent protein or CMV-LUC gene constructs, we established that cells in the telencephalon and optic tectum are transfected.
Compression of the brain ventricles in calves due to Vitamin - A deficiency causes failure of growth and sculpturing of cranial vault to accommodate the growing brain reported by Jubb and Kennedy (1970).
The patient underwent four cycles of bleomycin/etoposide/cisplatin (BEP) regimen, and the MRI at four months from surgery (Figure 4) showed reduction of mass volume and normal size of brain ventricles. After four cycles of chemotherapy, beta-hCG serum level decreased, but complete normalization was not obtained (serum level was 26vIU/L).
Although enlargement of third and lateral ventricles has been reported in bipolar patients in some studies, other studies showed no significant difference in the sizes of brain ventricles and posterior fossa structures, when bipolar patients were compared with healthy controls (22,26).
[1] Though MRI has evolved as the new technique, yet visualisation of brain ventricles by CT remains the most widely accessible and affordable tool in Indian scenario.
