interpeduncular cistern

(redirected from basal cistern)

in·ter·pe·dun·cu·lar cis·tern

a dilation of the subarachnoid space rostral to the basilar pons and ventral and caudal to the mammillary bodies where the arachnoid membrane stretches across between the two temporal lobes over the base of the diencephalon. See: interpeduncular fossa.

Tarin space - a dilation of the subarachnoid space in front of the pons. Synonym(s): interpeduncular cistern
Tarin tenia - a slender, compact fiber bundle that connects the amygdala with the hypothalamus and other basal forebrain regions. Synonym(s): terminal stria
Tarin valve - a thin sheet of white matter hidden by the cerebellar tonsil and attached along the peduncle of the flocculus and to the nodulus of the vermis. Synonym(s): inferior medullary velum

11 Basal cistern or even lateral fissure enhancement, hydrocephalus and basal ganglia lacunar lesions displayed by MRI are considered as three characteristics of tubercular meningitis.
Conclusion: ICP measurement values and the presence of compression of basal cistern on the initial brain CT can be used to predict the prognosis in severe head injury but there is no significant relationship between hypophyseal hormone values and prognosis.
Compressed basal cistern, displaced 4th ventricle and hydrocephalus were present in 1(2.
They cover endoscopic intraventricular and basal cistern anatomy, clinical indications, neuroendoscopic procedures, and endoscope-assisted microneurosurgical procedures.
Brain CT showed brain edema with diffuse subarachnoid hemorrhage located at the basal cistern and intraventricular area.
Cranial CT revealed SAH in basal cistern and bilateral Sylvian fissures.
Otherwise, it provides route to drain cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from basal cisterns before Sylvian fissure splitting.
13],[14] had observed that ICP monitoring was tried in this study, but they observed that it was unable to predict the late onset sudden rise in pressure instead of ICP monitoring obliteration of basal cisterns pears to be more reliable indicator for severity of injury we agree with the observation of above study
Emergent CT showed increased swelling and obliteration of the basal cisterns consistent with the patient's clinical symptoms of becoming more lethargic.
CT scan brain was done which showed oedema in bilateral cerebral convexities and posterior fossa with effacement of basal cisterns and compression of the fourth ventricle.
2) In children < 18 months, the presence of a diffuse copper-beaten pattern on skull radiography, together with narrowing of the basal cisterns and obliteration of the anterior sulci, increases the likelihood of raised intracranial pressure.
