  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Abducens nerve palsy in a patient with a parasagittal meningioma--case report.
  • A 67-year-old female presented with isolated unilateral abducens nerve palsy progressing in 10 days.
  • The tumor was grossly totally removed and the patient's nerve palsy gradually improved within 3 weeks.
  • The mechanism of the isolated abducens nerve palsy in this case is attributed to compression of the abducens nerve by entrapment of the cerebrospinal fluid just before entering Dorello's canal under the petrolingual ligament.
  • Linear forces in the midsagittal plane due to the mass effect of the tumor may have temporarily increased the local cerebrospinal fluid pressure and caused 'pseudoentrapment' of the abducens nerve.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Three cases of abducens nerve palsy accompanied by Horner syndrome].
  • PURPOSE: To report three cases of nasopharyngeal carcinoma, exhibiting abducens nerve palsy and Horner syndrome during the medical treatment of the tumor, whose invasive cavernous sinus lesions could be detected.
  • RESULTS: Right abducens nerve palsy, Horner syndrome, and impairment of the 1st division of the trigeminal nerve were recognized in all patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The abducens and sympathetic nerves run closely together in the cavernous sinus.
  • Nasopharyngeal carcinoma is apt to invade the cavernous sinus and often impairs the abducens nerve.
  • Therefore the presence of Horner syndrome and trigeminal palsy in combination with abducens nerve palsy should be cautiously investigated to confirm the existence of the cavernous sinus lesions.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Abducens nerve schwannoma mimicking intrinsic brainstem tumor.
  • Schwannomas of the abducens nerve are extremely rare tumors affecting cavernous, cisternal or both segments of sixth cranial nerve.
  • Clinical features and neuroradiological imagery are frequently insufficient to reach an accurate pre-operative diagnosis.
  • We report a patient with a cystic tumor with ring-like contrast enhancement at the right anterior pontomesencephalic junction.
  • Radical excision was performed via anterior transpetrosal approach and showed an extrinsic tumor originating from the sixth nerve.
  • A postoperative sixth nerve palsy had disappeared completely 9 months after the surgery.
  • The correct diagnosis of an abducens nerve schwannoma is established by the intraoperative finding of a tumor attachment to the sixth nerve and by histopathological analysis.
  • The various differential diagnoses, the clinical and radiological features of this diagnosis and management are issues discussed in this illustrated review.

COS Scholar Universe. author profiles.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Clinical course of abducens nerve palsy associated with skull base tumours.
  • BACKGROUND: The clinical course of abducens nerve palsy associated with skull base tumour is rarely reported.
  • In this study, we examined the post-operative course of abducens nerve palsies associated with various skull base tumours.
  • Among them, nine patients presented with abducens nerve palsies (ten nerves) following surgery.
  • We evaluated the function of the abducens nerves in these patients on admission, at discharge, and periodically in the outpatient clinic.
  • FINDINGS: Four of the abducens nerve palsies already existed prior to surgery, and six of them developed post-operatively.
  • In three patients with petro-clival meningiomas, the abducens nerves were completely transected during surgery, and one was reconstructed using fibrin glue.
  • This patient remarkably recovered from the abducens nerve palsy within 2 years.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The abducens nerve palsies in pituitary adenomas and trigeminal schwannomas showed a better clinical course compared to those in skull base meningiomas.
  • The abducens nerve palsies that occur with skull base meningiomas are less likely to recover.
  • Nevertheless, it is important to preserve the nerves and to perform surgical repair if the nerve is transected.

  • [Title] [A case of a hemorrhagic non-functioning pituitary adenoma presenting with abducens nerve palsy].
  • A pituitary adenoma presenting with isolated abducens nerve palsy is an extremely rare occurrence.
  • The authors report a rare case of a hemorrhagic non-functioning pituitary adenoma presenting with isolated abducens nerve palsy.
  • The etiology of isolated abducens nerve palsy by a pituitary tumor is discussed.
  • On admission, he had right-sided isolated abducens nerve palsy.
  • The tumor was totally resected via the transnasal route.
  • The histological diagnosis was a typical non-functioning pituitary adenoma with hemorrhage.
  • The abducens nerve palsy was completely resolved 7 months after surgery.
  • It was supposed that the isolated abducens nerve palsy was caused by the direct compression of abducens nerve in the cavernous sinus by the extension of a pituitary tumor and hematoma.
  • Pituitary adenoma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of abducens nerve palsy.
  • Early diagnosis and transsphenoidal surgery is recommended to improve the abducens nerve palsy.

  • We reviewed 12 patients with pituitary tumour and cranial nerve palsy to analyse the clinical characteristics, the radiographic appearances, and the outcome after surgery.
  • The third cranial nerve was the most frequently affected, followed by the sixth and fourth cranial nerves.
  • Third cranial nerve palsy manifested as a symptom sequence comprising mydriasis, followed by limitation of gaze and ptosis.
  • The time taken for recovery of cranial nerve palsy after surgery was significantly correlated with the length of time between the onset of symptoms and surgery.
  • Pituitary apoplexy appears to be the primary cause of cranial nerve palsy with pituitary tumour.
  • Early surgical intervention is most likely to bring about rapid recovery from cranial nerve dysfunction.

  • [Title] Etiology and treatment of pediatric sixth nerve palsy.
  • PURPOSE: To describe the causes and treatment of sixth (abducens) nerve palsy in a series of pediatric patients.
  • METHODS: This was a 14-year retrospective study of sixth nerve palsy in children under 14 years of age.
  • Patients were treated with botulinum toxin injection at the time of diagnosis; surgery was indicated if treatment with botulinum toxin was unsuccessful.
  • RESULTS: Sixth nerve palsy was diagnosed in 15 patients (10 boys; mean age, 4.1 years) between 1995 and 2008.
  • Causes included neoplasm (4 cases), trauma (2), idiopathic (3), congenital (2), viral (2), and inflammatory (1).
  • In all 15 patients, mean time from diagnosis to resolution was 39 months (range, 5 to 170 months).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Neoplasms were the most frequent cause of sixth nerve palsy in our patient population.

  • [Title] Health-related quality of life evaluation in patients undergoing cavernous nerve reconstruction during radical prostatectomy.
  • OBJECTIVE: Nerve-grafting surgery after resection of neuro-vascular bundles during radical prostatectomy is one of the promising resolutions for dilemma between cancer control and functional preservation.
  • The objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of nerve-grafting surgery on health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in localized prostate cancer patients with special interest in the influence of sexual dysfunction on mental status.
  • Of those, 24 patients underwent unilateral nerve-sparing with contralateral nerve-grafting or bilateral nerve-grafting and 64 patients underwent prostatectomy without nerve-sparing procedure.
  • RESULTS: Patients in nerve-grafting group who recovered potency demonstrated higher sexual function scores compared with those without nerve-sparing procedure (P = 0.022 and 0.001 in 25-48 and 49 months or later, respectively).
  • However, sexual bother scores in nerve-grafting group who recovered potency were lower than those without nerve-sparing procedure throughout the observation periods (P = 0.012 in 49 months or later).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Cavernous nerve reconstruction provided recovery of erectile dysfunction in substantial proportion of patients, which resulted in favorable physical HRQOL.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Gamma Knife surgery for abducent nerve schwannoma. Report of 4 cases.
  • Abducent nerve schwannomas are extremely rare.
  • The authors recently performed Gamma Knife surgery (GKS) in 4 patients with such tumors and describe their experiences with these cases.
  • Two patients had no symptoms, 1 complained of slight visual disturbances, and the other 1 had abducent nerve palsy.
  • All 4 tumors were located in the cavernous sinus: 2 of these tumors within the borders of the sinus, 1 tumor extending into the orbit, and 1 tumor extending into the prepontine cistern.
  • The volume of the neoplasms varied from 1.7 to 4.9 cm(3) (mean 3.0 cm(3)).
  • No patient underwent tumor resection.
  • The dose directed to the tumor margin was 12 Gy in all cases.
  • Imaging studies showed temporary enlargement of all tumors during the 1st posttreatment year, but thereafter, there was a trend toward reduction in volume.
  • None of the neoplasms displayed regrowth.
  • In the 3 patients who did not have abducent nerve palsy before GKS, it appeared, at least temporarily, after the procedure.
  • Purely intracavernous neoplasms in general followed uneventful posttreatment courses, but dumbbell-shaped tumors were associated with significant morbidity.
  • After GKS, the patient treated for an orbitocavernous schwannoma experienced a significant deterioration in vision, temporary blindness in 1 eye, and late development of permanent abducent nerve palsy, which were seemingly caused by compression of neurovascular structures within the anulus of Zinn during a temporary increase in the lesion's volume after irradiation.
  • Gamma Knife surgery controls the growth of abducent nerve schwannomas and may be effectively used to manage intracavernous neoplasms.
  • Caution, however, should be used in cases of dumbbell-shaped tumors, particularly those extending through the superior orbital fissure.

  • [Title] Primary sphenoid sinus neoplasms: a report of four cases with common clinical presentation treated with transsphenoidal surgery and adjuvant therapies.
  • BACKGROUND: Primary neoplasms of the sphenoid sinus are a rare occurrence, accounting for approximately 1-2% of all paranasal sinus tumors.
  • METHODS: Four patients with sphenoid sinus neoplasms were identified (1%), all treated during the year 2003.
  • Two patients presented with unilateral abducens cranial nerve (CN) palsies; one had trigeminal facial numbness and dizziness; another had headache, epistaxis, and partial third and fourth CN palsies.
  • Cavernous sinus invasion was present in all four cases, including one patient with tumor in the ethmoid sinus and intra-tumoral hemorrhage.
  • All patients underwent subtotal tumor removal via an endonasal transsphenoidal route.
  • Tumor histology included neuroendocrine carcinoma, sinonasal undifferentiated carcinoma, mucoepidermoid carcinoma, and giant cell tumor.
  • One patient required a second endonasal tumor debulking 15 months after the first for new visual loss that then resolved.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Intra-sphenoidal tumors are locally invasive tumors that include a wide pathological spectrum.
  • Recognizing their distinctive clinical presentation and MRI features is helpful in differentiating them from primary sellar tumors.

  • [Title] Stereotactic radiotherapy using Novalis for skull base metastases developing with cranial nerve symptoms.
  • Skull base metastases are challenging situations because they often involve critical structures such as cranial nerves.
  • We evaluated the role of stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT) which can give high doses to the tumors sparing normal structures.
  • They had neurological symptoms due to cranial nerve involvement including optic nerve (3 patients), oculomotor (3), trigeminal (6), abducens (1), facial (4), acoustic (1), and lower cranial nerves (1).
  • The interval between the onset of cranial nerve symptoms and Novalis SRT was 1 week to 7 months.
  • Eleven tumors of 8-112 ml in volume were treated by Novalis SRT with 30-50 Gy in 10-14 fractions.
  • The tumors were covered by 90-95% isodose.
  • All 11 metastatic tumors were locally controlled until the end of the follow-up time or patient death, though retreatment for re-growth was done in 1 patient.
  • In 10 of 11 patients, cranial nerve deficits were improved completely or partially.
  • In some patients, the cranial nerve symptoms were relieved even during the period of fractionated SRT.
  • Novalis SRT is thought to be safe and effective treatment for skull base metastases with involvement of cranial nerves and it may improve cranial nerve symptoms quickly.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Tumour origin was classified into four subtypes according to the main attachment and trigeminal nerve deviation into, upper clivus (UC), cavernous sinus (CS), tentorium (TE), and petrous apex (PA).
  • FINDINGS: The characteristic symptom was ataxia in the UC type (37.5%), abducens nerve palsy in the CS type (64.3%) and trigeminal neuropathy, mainly neuralgia in the PA type (80.0%) with a higher statistical difference from other subtypes.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This classification is useful to predict the relation between the tumour and the cranial nerves based on symptoms and images.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • RESULTS: The comparison of the 2 endoscopic surgical views (endonasal and retrosigmoid) allowed us to define 3 subregions over the clival area (cranial, middle, and caudal levels) when explored via the endonasal route.
  • The definition of these subregions was based on the identification of some anatomic landmarks (the internal carotid artery from the lacerum to the intradural segment, the abducens nerve, and the hypoglossal canal) that limit the bone opening via the endonasal route and the natural well-established corridors via the retrosigmoid route.

  • [Title] Malignant tumors of the anterolateral skull base.
  • The most common presenting feature was cranial nerve palsy (60%).
  • Of these cranial nerve palsies, trigeminal neuropathies causing facial numbness were the most common, with V2 being affected in 35%, V3 affected in 33%, and V1 affected in 17%.
  • Abducens neuropathy was present in 14% of patients.
  • The most common complications were a new or worsened cranial nerve deficit (n = 4), pneumonia (n = 4), and flap necrosis (n = 3).
  • CONCLUSION: It is our belief that anterolateral skull base malignancies comprise a distinct group of tumors.
  • With a multimodality treatment protocol, acceptable survivals may be obtained that are comparable to results that have been reported for tumors involving less difficult areas of the skull base.

  • Given the large size of the tumor, the elevated prolactin (PRL) was interpreted to be secondary to stalk effect and patient underwent debulking surgery through a transcranial approach.
  • Immunostaining of the excised tumor tissue was strongly positive for prolactin.
  • His prolactin was found to be 13,144 ng/ml in our lab after surgery confirming the diagnosis of invasive giant prolactinoma.
  • The patient developed a complete right third, fourth and sixth nerve palsy postoperatively.
  • He was started on Cabergoline with normalization of his prolactin level and more than 50% decrease in residual tumor size over 9 months periods.

  • [Title] [Intraoperative identification of oculomotor, trochlear and abducent nerves in surgery of invasive cranioorbital tumors (new technique)].
  • BACKGROUND: Aim of the study was to evaluate effectiveness of intraoperative identification of oculomotor nerves (OMN) in resection of skull base tumors invading superior orbital fissure and cavernous sinus.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: 69 patients with cranioorbital tumors operated in Burdenko Neurosurgical Institute (Moscow, Russia) since 2000 until 2005 were included in the study.
  • Intraoperative identification of OMN was performed using coaxial electrode while muscular response was registered through electrodes inserted in m. levator palpebrae superioris, m. obliquus superior and m. rectus lateralis (for III, IV and VI cranial nerves, respectively).
  • Identification of IMN trunci was repeated throughout the whole stage of tumor resection for their preservation.
  • The rates in main and control groups were: for III and IV nerves--37% and 68% (p < 0.05), for VI nerve--47% and 54% (p > 0.05), respectively.
  • CONCLUSION: application of intraoperative identification of OMN allows to decrease the risk of oculomotor deterioration due to III and IV nerve dysfunction by 1.8 times.

  • Elongated abducens nerve was confirmed, but no tumor adhesion to the abducens nerve was found.
  • The tumor was closely attached to the dura mater of the middle fossa and the lateral wall of the cavernous sinus.
  • The histological diagnosis was schwannoma.
  • Both left oculomotor and abducens nerve pareses occurred immediately after the operation but gradually resolved over 3 months.
  • The operative findings indicated that this schwannoma may have arisen from the meningeal branch of the trigeminal nerve in the dura mater of the middle fossa.

  • [Title] [Ocular manifestations of brainstem tumor].
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the ocular manifestations of brainstem tumors and to avoid misdiagnosis and missed diagnosis.
  • The clinical data of 57 brainstem tumor in-patients were collected from 1993 to 2007.
  • RESULTS: The present series included 51 cases of brainstem germinoma, 4 cases of cavernous hemangioma, 1 case of hemangioblastoma and 1 case of metastatic tumor.
  • Patients were presented with diplopia, ocular motility disturbance, nystagmus, anisocoria, and facial palsy.
  • The incidence of oculomotor nerve paralysis was 17.5% (10/57); trochlear paralysis, 1.8% (1/57); trigeminal nerve paralysis, 5.3% (3/57); abducens nerve paralysis, 35.1% (20/57); facial palsy, 14.0% (8/57); optic disc edema, 19.3% (11/57); nystagmus, 21.1% (12/57) and anisocoria, 10.5% (6/57).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Ocular manifestations occur frequently in brainstem tumor.
  • Nuclear ophthalmoplegia, nystagmus and other neuro-ophthalmic signs provide helpful clues for the diagnosis of brainstem tumor.

  • [Title] Ocular neuromyotonia with spastic lid closure.
  • Ocular neuromyotonia is characterized by tonic spasms of extraocular muscles evoked by eccentric gaze that induces transient strabismus and diplopia.
  • We report the case of a 70-year-old woman who initially presented with unilateral deficits in fifth and sixth cranial nerve functions attributed to a fifth cranial nerve schwannoma.
  • After radiation treatment, she developed neuromyotonia and synkinesis of the ipsilateral third cranial nerve.
  • The ocular neuromyotonia regressed spontaneously within 3 years, but components of the synkinesis persisted.
  • Ephaptic transmission in a damaged third cranial nerve may be responsible for the neuromyotonia and synkinesis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Most primary lymphomas of the central nervous system (CNS) are of B-cell origin and are found intra-axially, with a few reported cases of skull base tumors involving the upper clivus or sellar region or both.
  • In this case, a tumor resembling a clivus meningioma without osseous involvement was surgically removed and turned out to be a primary T-cell lymphoma.
  • CASE REPORT: A 60-year-old woman presented with slight right-sided abducens nerve palsy.
  • Cranial imaging revealed an extra-axial mass at the caudal clivus resembling a meningioma.
  • The tumor was removed surgically; smear preparations obtained intraoperatively were inconclusive presumably because of preoperative steroid treatment.
  • The final diagnosis was peripheral T-cell lymphoma, not otherwise unspecified.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although a very rare entity among primary T-cell lymphomas of the CNS, these tumors also can occur as skull base lesions without involvement of the bone.
  • Preoperative steroid medication may complicate intraoperative histologic assessment and lead to inadequate treatment of these tumors.

  • We analyzed our series of transpetrosally operated petroclival meningiomas to obtain detailed information regarding the surgery outcomes with respect to facial nerve effects, hearing changes, general neurological and psychosocial differences, and recurrence rates to identify opportunities for improvement.
  • Facial nerve function was found to be of House-Brackmann Grade 3 or worse in six patients (including three individuals with transcochlear surgery and facial nerve rerouting).
  • Outcomes can be improved, however by improving patients' psychosocial support; striving to decompress, preserve, and minimize dissection of ill-defined planes of cranial nerves; and using Simpson Grade 4 gamma knife approaches when radicality is precluded.
  • Currently, the performance of transpetrosal surgery for petroclival meningiomas is a major undertaking that significantly affects a patient's health for several years; however, the approaches that we used allowed a high degree of tumor control with relatively little neurological morbidity.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Meckel's cave tumors: relation to the meninges and minimally invasive approaches for surgery: anatomic and clinical studies.
  • BACKGROUND: Literature on tumors originating from Meckel's cave (MC) and their surgical treatment are scarce.
  • OBJECTIVE: We present 37 cases of tumors originating from MC, the largest single-institution series reported thus far, and discuss the ideal surgical methods for each tumor type in relation to the normal and pathological anatomy of MC.
  • METHODS: We studied 37 cases of surgery for tumors in MC (26 schwannomas, 7 meningiomas, 2 epidermoids, 1 hemangiopericytoma, and 1 dermoid) performed at our institution between 1986 and 2008.
  • We excluded cases of large tumors of unknown origin, especially meningiomas.
  • Surgery for tumors in MC was performed via 2 approaches: anterolateral interdural access (Dolenc's) approach and posterior access via the anterior petrosal approach (APA).
  • RESULTS: The Dolenc approach was useful for parasellar tumors, especially schwannomas, because it resulted in minimal damage to the temporal lobe and adjacent cranial nerves.
  • The APA was useful for dumbbell-shaped tumors extending into the posterior fossa.
  • Tumors of nonmeningeal origin (schwannomas, epidermoids, and dermoids) were safely resected, with no postoperative complications except facial hypesthesia.
  • However, incidence of postsurgical paresthesia and abducens palsy were higher in meningioma and hemangiopericytoma, because of invasion into the Gasserian ganglion, the cavernous sinus (CS), or Dorello's canal.
  • CONCLUSION: An understanding of meningeal structure around MC enhances the radicality of tumor resection and helps minimize damage to adjacent structures.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The presigmoidal approach was selected to remove tumors.
  • The surgical strategy for tumor in cavernous sinus was partial resection combined with radiosurgery.
  • Postoperative cranial nerve function and patient survival status were analyzed.
  • RESULTS: The main symptoms of subtype of petroclival meningiomas were headache, abducens nerve palsy and trigeminal neuropathy.
  • Gross total tumor removal was achieved in 13 cases and more than 90% resection in 2 cases.
  • Nine cases suffered from new postoperative cranial nerve deficits.
  • After a follow-up of 6 - 59 months, complete improvement was achieved in oculomotor nerve deficits, much improvement in VII nerve deficit, but V and VI nerve function deficits improved slightly.
  • The tumor progression-free survival rate was 86.7%.
