  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Concurrent vestibular schwannoma and meningioma mimicking a single cerebellopontine angle tumor.
  • Vestibular schwannomas account for ~;80% of cerebellopontine angle (CPA) tumors, with meningiomas being the second most common tumor of the CPA.
  • The occurrence of both a schwannoma and a meningioma in the cerebellopontine angle is rare.
  • After obtaining Institutional Review Board approval, we present a case of a concurrent vestibular schwannoma and meningioma in the CPA mimicking a single tumor.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - MRI Scans.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the postoperative MR images of 53 patients with cerebellopontine angle tumor.
  • RESULTS: A tiny area of hyperintensity was observed at the lateral angle of the fourth ventricle floor in 6 patients (3 men, 3 women; age range, 24-54 years; mean age, 43 years) with vestibular schwannoma larger than 2 cm in maximal diameter on both FSE T2-weighted and CISS images.
  • If such hyperintensity is seen in a patient with a large cerebellopontine angle tumor, a diagnosis of vestibular schwannoma is suggested.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Ex-vivo HRMAS of adult brain tumours: metabolite quantification and assignment of tumour biomarkers.
  • BACKGROUND: High-resolution magic angle spinning (HRMAS) NMR spectroscopy allows detailed metabolic analysis of whole biopsy samples for investigating tumour biology and tumour classification.
  • Accurate biochemical assignment of small molecule metabolites that are "NMR visible" will improve our interpretation of HRMAS data and the translation of NMR tumour biomarkers to in-vivo studies.
  • RESULTS: 1D and 2D 1H HRMAS NMR was used to determine that 29 small molecule metabolites, along with 8 macromolecule signals, account for the majority of the HRMAS spectrum of the main types of brain tumour (astrocytoma grade II, grade III gliomas, glioblastomas, metastases, meningiomas and also lymphomas).
  • Differences in concentration of 20 of these metabolites were statistically significant between these brain tumour types.
  • CONCLUSIONS: A number of small molecule metabolites have been identified as potential biomarkers of tumour type that may enable development of more selective in-vivo 1H NMR acquisition methods for diagnosis and prognosis of brain tumours.

  • At operation, a 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 cm neoplasm was found in the cerebellopontine angle, which was firmly adherent to the roots of the seventh and eighth cranial nerves and the brainstem.
  • There was no apparent tumour bulk or vascular compression around the trigeminal nerve root entry zone.
  • Subtotal tumour excision and selective partial rhizotomy were performed.
  • Involvement of the trigeminal nucleus in the brainstem by the cerebellopontine angle tumour is suggested as the possible cause for trigeminal neuralgia in this case.

  • The aim of the study was to estimate a cochlear efferent system in the group of patents with cerebello-pontine angle tumor (CPA).
  • The research was also conducted on the influence of tumor dimensions, age, sex, and the hearing level in tonal audiometry on the size of the efferent effect.
  • The research was carried out on a group of 14 patients with cerebello-pontine angle tumor and on an appropriate fourteen-person test group.
  • Having our results analyzed we were able to state that, compared with the test group, in the group of patients with CPA tumor significant reduce suppressions of otoacoustic emission response during CAS occurred both in an ear on the tumor side and in an ear on the healthy side.
  • However, the tumor dimensions, sex, and the hearing level in tonal audiometry seemed not to affect significantly the size of the efferent effect.

  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of multiple cranial nerves monitoring under partial Seventy elective neuromuscular relaxation during cerebellopontine angle (CPA) tumor resection.
  • METHODS: patients undergoing CPA tumor resection via microneurosurgery were randomly allocated to 2 equal groups: Group FN receiving intraoperative facial nerve (NF) monitoring and Group MN receiving monitoring of multiple nerves: trigeminal nerve, glossopharyngeal nerve, accessory nerve or hypoglossal nerve other than the FN which were considered at risk by the neurosurgeon preoperatively.
  • Multiple cranial nerves combined with facial nerve monitoring seems unable to increase the short-term protective effects of nerve function after CPA tumor resection.

  • [Title] Hyperventilation-induced nystagmus in peripheral vestibulopathy and cerebellopontine angle tumor.
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine the incidence and characteristics of hyperventilation-induced nystagmus (HIN) in cerebellopontine angle (CPA) tumors and unilateral peripheral vestibulopathy (UPV), and to elucidate differential contribution of hyperventilation to bring out vestibular asymmetry between acute and chronic phases of UPV.
  • RESULTS: The incidence of HIN was higher in the CPA tumor than in the UPV group (82 vs 34%, p < 0.01) and was also higher in the acute than in the chronic UPV group (60 vs 21%, p < 0.01).
  • Furthermore, HIN was more commonly ipsilesional (i-HIN) in the CPA tumor than in the UPV group (52 vs 8%, p < 0.01) and more commonly ipsilesional in the acute than in the chronic UPV group (21 vs 1%, p < 0.01).
  • Our study demonstrates that hyperventilation-induced nystagmus (HIN) beating to the side of reduced caloric response, hearing impairment, or abnormal auditory brainstem response responses may be a valuable sign for bedside detection of cerebellopontine angle (CPA) tumors.
  • CPA tumor should be a prime suspicion in patients with acute vertigo and ipsilesional HIN, especially when the vertigo accompanies hearing impairments.

  • [Title] Cerebellopontine angle tumors causing hemifacial spasm: types, incidence, and mechanism in nine reported cases and literature review.
  • OBJECTIVE: Although hemifacial spasm is usually caused by vascular compression around the root exit zone of the facial nerve, it is sometimes brought on by a cerebellopontine angle tumor.
  • We reviewed and analyzed data from past experience with hemifacial spasm induced by cerebellopontine angle tumors.
  • METHODS: Nine patients of a total 2,050, who had presented with hemifacial spasms associated with cerebellopontine angle tumors between 1986 and 2009, were reviewed.
  • With respect to the pathogenesis of hemifacial spasms, offending vessels were found in six patients, tumor encasement of the facial nerve in one patient, hypervascular tumor compression of the facial nerve without offending vessels in one patient, and a huge tumor compressing the brain stem and, thus, contralateral facial nerve compression in one patient.
  • Hemifacial spasm was resolved in seven patients, whereas in two patients with a vestibular schwannoma and an epidermoid tumor, it improved transiently and then recurred in a month.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Each type of tumor had different characteristics with respect to the induction of hemifacial spasm; therefore, it is suggested that neurosurgeons, who are planning surgeries both for the purposes of relieving hemifacial spasm and removal of cerebellopontine angle tumor, should thoroughly prepare appropriate approaches and specific dissecting strategies according to each causative lesion.

  • The first detailed evaluation is presented of high-resolution (31)P MRS using magic angle spinning (MAS) of intact tissue samples and comparison with the conventional method of studying tissue extracts.
  • In tumour samples there was no significant change in peak areas over a 2-h period, while peaks sensitive to pH (inorganic phosphate, PE and PC) showed a small change in chemical shift, corresponding to a change of 0.13 +/- 0.06 pH units.
  • The methodology has particular application in studying phospholipid metabolism in cancer and in monitoring tumour response to treatment, where concentrations of phospholipid-related metabolites are found to alter following response to a wide range of anti-cancer therapies.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Diffusion-weighted MRI for tumour volume delineation: comparison with morphological MRI.
  • Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (dwMRI) is sensitive to tissue microstructure on the cellular level and may therefore help to define biological tumour subvolumes and add complementary information to morphology-based cancer treatment protocols and therapy monitoring.
  • The purpose of this study was therefore to evaluate the potential of dwMRI as compared with morphological MRI (mMRI) for tumour volume delineation using a nude rat human tumour xenograft model.
  • Sixteen tumour-bearing rats (10 H1299, six FaDu) were examined with mMRI (T2-weighted true fast imaging with steady precession (TrueFISP), T1-weighted fast low angle shot (FLASH), T2-weighted dual echo steady state (DESS)) and echo-planar dwMRI in a clinical scanner at 1.5 T.
  • For each method, we compared tumour volume and intra- and inter-observer variability of tumour outer edge delineation (disregarding intra-tumoural structure) as well as tumour signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and tumour-to-muscle contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR).
  • Median tumour volumes as measured by dwMRI (3.5 cm(3)) and mMRI (TrueFISP: 3.3 cm(3); FLASH: 3.3 cm(3); DESS: 3.2 cm(3)) were not significantly different and significantly correlated.
  • In conclusion, dwMRI allows tumour delineation with overall volume estimation comparable with mMRI approaches but slightly higher observer variability.
  • Thus, besides tumour outline, it may potentially supplement morphology-based therapy planning and monitoring with additional biological information.

  • 1H nuclear magnetic resonance (1H NMR) spectroscopy has found widespread applications in tumour studies.
  • Several complementary NMR techniques have provided valuable information concerning tumours, including in vivo localized 1H NMR spectroscopy, ex vivo high-resolution 1H NMR spectroscopy of extracts of intact tissue biopsy samples, high-resolution magic angle spinning 1H NMR spectroscopy of intact tissue biopsy samples, and in vitro high-resolution 1H NMR spectroscopy of body fluids.
  • On the basis of the combination of NMR measurements with multivariate data analysis, 1H NMR-based metabonomics has become a promisingly novel approach in the studies of tumour early diagnosis, processes and prognosis estimate.

  • Her tumour was believed to have originated as a result of trauma to the left maxillary antrum.
  • The tumour was associated with drooping and disfigurement of the left angle of her mouth and extended forwards from her left external ear to the left side of her nose.
  • The volume of the tumour was just slightly less than that of her face.
  • Since then, additional casts showing her post-operative appearance and that of her tumour have been located, and these form the basis for this follow-up account.

  • [Title] Quantitative analysis of lung and tumour mobility: comparison of two time-resolved MRI sequences.
  • The purpose of this study was to describe the use of parallel imaging technique (PAT) using dynamic MRI in lung and tumour mobility during the breathing cycle.
  • 20 patients with stage I non-small cell lung carcinoma were investigated using two dynamic gradient echo sequences with PAT (TrueFISP (fast imaging with steady precession), and fast low angle shot (FLASH).
  • Craniocaudal distance from the apex to the diaphragm of the thorax and tumour mobility during the breathing cycle were measured.
  • Signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of the tumour was determined.
  • In spite of the different temporal resolutions both trueFISP and FLASH sequence proved to be adequate to continuously measure lung motion and tumour mobility.
  • SNR of the tumour was significantly higher using the trueFISP sequence than FLASH sequence (20.7+/-3.6 vs 5.8+/-2.3, p<0.01).
  • Mobility of the tumour bearing hemithorax was significantly lower compared with the non-tumour bearing hemithorax (p<0.05).
  • Dynamic MRI using PAT allows for continuous quantitative documentation of tumour mobility and lung motion.

  • We report a three-year-old boy who presented with left facial nerve palsy and weight loss with bilateral large cerebellopontine (CP) angle masses that extended into the internal auditory canal on magnetic resonance imaging.
  • However, histological examination of the spinal masses revealed a primitive neuroectodermal tumour.
  • Although bilateral CP angle masses are characteristic of NF-2, the possibility of diffuse craniospinal malignancy should be considered in a very young child who presents with weight loss and extensive tumours.

  • [Title] Application of small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) for differentiation between normal and cancerous breast tissue.
  • INTRODUCTION: Small angle, between 3 degrees and 10 degrees, X ray scattering is predominantly coherent giving rise to diffraction effects that can be observed as constructive and destructive interferences.
  • The optimum scattering angle, determined from a series of measurements on adipose breast tissue at several angles from 4 to 7.3 degrees, was found to be 6.5 degrees.
  • The samples were both normal and tumour samples.
  • Adipose tissue, mixed tissue (adipose & fibroglandular) and tumor have peaks at different values of momentum transfer that can be used to identify the tissue.
  • CONCLUSION: We were able to differentiate between normal, benign and malignant breast tissues by using energy dispersive small angle x-ray scattering.

  • Twenty-eight human breast tumour specimens were studied with small-angle x-ray scattering (SAXS), and 10 of those were imaged by the diffraction enhanced x-ray imaging (DEI) technique.
  • The correspondence between the DEI images, the SAXS maps and the histo-pathology suggests that definitive information on tumour growth and malignancy is obtained by combining these x-ray methods.

  • [Title] Mediastinal ganglioneuroma: a rare and often asymptomatic tumour. A case report.
  • Ganglioneuroma is a very rare tumour characterised by a slow evolution and arising from cells originating in the neural crest.
  • This type of tumour occurs most commonly in the posterior mediastinum and is considered malignant in childhood and benign thereafter.
  • The tumour was encapsulated and adhered tightly to the pleura of the costovertebral angle.
  • The totally asymptomatic clinical picture could be explained by the very slow growth of this type of tumour which can displace the surrounding anatomical structures without infiltration.

  • Tumours can also extend into the CPA by extension from the skull base (paraganglioma, chondromatous tumours, chordoma, cholesterol granuloma, endolymphatic sac tumour).
  • Finally, brain stem or ventricular tumours can present with a significant exophytic component in the CPA that may be difficult to differentiate from an extra-axial lesion (lymphoma, hemangioblastoma, choroid plexus papilloma, ependymoma, glioma, medulloblastoma, dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumour).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: The probability of hearing loss during cerebellopontine angle (CPA) surgery can be reduced by using brainstem auditory evoked potential (BAEP) intraoperative monitoring (IOM).
  • When patients with CPA tumor were excluded, a significantly higher number of patients in Group 4 had hearing loss.
  • Analysis of the patients with CPA tumor showed no difference in the frequency of hearing loss in any of the groups; even a large number (50%) of Group 1 patients had hearing impairment.
  • For non-cerebellopontine angle tumor surgery, hearing loss occurs usually only with permanent loss of wave V; much smaller changes may be important in cerebellopontine angle tumor surgery.

  • RESULTS: Four (28.5%) patients underwent single-stage tumor removal through the petro-occipital transigmoid (POTS) approach.
  • A modified transcochlear approach type D with posterior rerouting of the facial nerve and transection of the sigmoid sinus and jugular bulb was performed in two patients with a huge cerebellopontine angle tumor component with extension to the prepontine cistern together with massive involvement of the petrous bone and middle ear and encasement of the vertical and horizontal segments of the intrapetrous carotid artery.
  • In one patient with evidence of a dominant sinus on the site of the tumor, a subtotal tumor removal via an enlarged translabyrinthine approach (ETLA) was planned to resect the intradural component of the tumor.
  • Two patients in our series underwent a planned staged procedure on account of a huge tumor component in the neck.
  • One of these patients underwent a first-stage infratemporal fossa approach type A to remove the tumor component in the neck; the second-stage intradural removal of the tumor was accomplished via an ETLA.
  • The last patient underwent a first-stage modified transcochlear type D approach to remove the intradural tumor component followed by a second-stage transcervical procedure for removal of the extracranial component.
  • Gross total tumor removal (Simpson grade I-II) was achieved in 11 (84.6%) cases.
  • Subtotal removal of the tumor was accomplished in two patients.
  • Good facial nerve function (grades I and II) was achieved in 46.1% of cases, whereas acceptable function (grade III) was achieved in the remaining cases 1 year after tumor removal.

  • [Title] Non-invasive detection of glycine as a biomarker of malignancy in childhood brain tumours using in-vivo 1H MRS at 1.5 tesla confirmed by ex-vivo high-resolution magic-angle spinning NMR.
  • Forty-seven cases (18 high grade (HG), 17 low grade (LG), 12 ungraded) were retrospectively selected if both short-TE and long-TE MRS (n = 33) or short-TE MRS and high-resolution magic-angle spinning (HRMAS) of matched surgical samples (n = 15) were available.
  • This study suggests that glycine can be reliably detected in paediatric brain tumours using in-vivo MRS on standard clinical scanners and that it is a promising biomarker of tumour aggressiveness.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Video-assisted thoracic surgery for superior posterior mediastinal neurogenic tumour in the supine position.
  • This is an area above the level of the pericardium, with the superior thoracic opening as its superior limit and its inferior limit at the plane from the sternal angle to the level of intervertebral disc of thoracic 4 to 5 vertebra lying behind the great vessels.
  • There is no literature related to VATS in the supine position for treating lesions in the posterior mediastinum because the lung tissue falls in the dependent posterior mediastinum and obscures the field of surgery; however, VATS in the supine position is routinely done for lesions in the anterior mediastinum and single-stage bilateral spontaneous pneumothorax.

  • The leading mechanisms are direct invasion of the chamber angle by tumour cells, rubeosis iridis, and forward displacement of the iris-lens-diaphragm with (lens induced) pupillary block.
  • As intraocular tumours may have pressure-lowering effects too, eyes bearing a tumour may also be hypotonic or normotonic inspite of a "glaucomatous chamber angle morphology".
  • The therapy of the tumour-induced glaucomas is hardly validated and generally follows the treatment of the other secondary glaucomas.
  • However, filtration procedures are contraindicated when a malignant tumour is diagnosed or suspected.
  • Because of the progress of tumour therapy with salvation of eyes which had to be enucleated in former times and prolongation of survival in some tumour entities (like Non Hodgkin's lymphoma and metastases) the significance of tumour-induced glaucomas will probably further increase in the future.

  • [Title] [Ultrasound biomicroscopy in diagnosis of anterior segment pathology].
  • INTRODUCTION: Ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure, developed in order to achieve better visualization of the anterior segment of the eye.
  • The existence of the ciliary body tumour was suspected, so she underwent a UBM diagnostic procedure.
  • UBM showed fibrin in the anterior chamber of the eye, occlusion of the pupil, and the absence of tumour.
  • The second patient had a part of the chamber angle filled with solid lesion.
  • UBM showed a solid tumour lesion filling the chamber angle in the lower part of the anterior chamber.
  • The origin of the tumour was the ciliary body rather than the choroid which was shown by the B scan ultrasound.
  • Our fourth patient underwent an antiglaucomatous procedure, and the assessment of the chamber angle opening was the reason for the UBM examination.
  • Comparing them to normal values, we came to the conclusion that the chamber angle was open in the lower part of the anterior chamber.
  • CONCLUSION: Ultrasound biomicroscopy gives us plenty of useful information when it comes to diagnosing the anterior chamber pathology.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • We have assessed the clinical observation that the angle of the contralateral lamina matches the angle required from the sagital plane for the placement of pedicle screws in the subaxial cervical spine.
  • Subjects were excluded if the scan showed signs of fracture, tumour or gross abnormality.
  • The following were measured; the angle of the pedicle relative to the sagital plane, the smallest internal and external diameter of the pedicles and the angle of the lamina.
  • Mean pedicle angle was 130 degrees at C3 and 140 degrees at C7.
  • The contralateral laminar angle correlated well at C3, 4, 5 (R (2) = 0.9, C3 P = 0.002, C4 P = 0.06, C5 P = 0.0004) and was within 1 degrees of pedicle angle.
  • The contralateral lamina provides a reliable intraoperative guide to the angle from the sagital plane for subaxial cervical pedicle instrumentation in adults.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Treatment consisted of 60 Gy of proton beam irradiation delivered in four fractions to the tumour volume.
  • The iridocorneal angle was invaded by the tumour in 71.4% of patients.
  • None of the patients showed tumour progression or ocular relapse.
  • The tumour response at 2 years was a flat lesion for 6.3% of cases, partial regression in 75% and stable in 18.8%.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Proton beam therapy shows potential utility for selected cases of localised iris melanomas allowing excellent local tumour control and eye preservation.
