3781. Long-term follow-up of meningiomas of the cavernous sinus after surgical treatment alone. Full Text available with Trip Pro

surgery was performed via a presigmoid-retrolabyrinthine or retrosigmoid approach in 13 and 14 patients, respectively.The mortality rate was 5% and two patients had severe hemiplegic or aphasic sequelae. The creation or aggravation of disorders in vision, ocular motility, or trigeminal function occurred in 19, 29, and 24% of patients respectively, with a significantly higher rate of complications when resection was performed inside the CS (p < 0.05). Gross-total removal of both the extra

, and for those with lesions acquired in early life or adulthood. These findings indicate a need for revision of the classical model of language localization. The combination of discrete localization in individual patients but substantial individual variability between patients also has major clinical implications for cortical resections of the dominant hemisphere, for it means that language cannot be reliably localized on anatomic criteria alone. A maximal resection with minimal risk of postoperative aphasia

3783. Migraine aura or transient ischemic attacks? A five-year follow-up case-control study of women with transient central nervous system disorders in pregnancy. Full Text available with Trip Pro

during the five-year follow-up.The diagnosis of migraine aura was difficult because for many patients it was their first ever attack and headache tended to be absent or of non-migraineous type. The aura features were more complex, with several aura symptoms and a higher prevalence of sensory and dysphasic aura than usual. Gradually developing aura symptoms, or different aura symptoms occurring in succession as described in the International Classification of Headache Disorders, seem to be useful

of hemorrhage. Nineteen patients with arterial hypertension underwent 28 surgical procedures. Five cases of hemorrhage (2.02%) occurred. One patient presented with hemiparesis and dysphasia but no surgery was required. The incidence of hemorrhage in patients in whom MER was performed was 2.9%, whereas the incidence in patients in whom MER was not used was 1.4% (p = 0.6529). Bleeding occurred in 10.71% of patients with hypertension and 0.91% of those who were nonhypertensive (p = 0.0111). Among the 104

3785. Hashimoto's encephalopathy mimicking migraine with aura. (Abstract)

Hashimoto's encephalopathy mimicking migraine with aura. We describe a patient with Hashimoto's encephalopathy presenting as long-standing episodes of aphasia associated with migraine-like headache. Repeated thyroid hormone levels were within normal values, but high titers of antithyroid antibodies in serum, and diffuse EEG slowing and CSF abnormalities during one episode led to the diagnosis.

3788. Verbal mediation and memory for novel figural designs: a dual interference study. (Abstract)

Verbal mediation and memory for novel figural designs: a dual interference study. To the extent that all types of visual stimuli can be verbalized to some degree, verbal mediation is intrinsic in so-called "visual" memory processing. This impurity complicates the interpretation of visual memory performance, particularly in certain neurologically impaired populations (e.g., aphasia). The purpose of this study was to investigate the relative contributions of verbal mediation to recognition memory

3789. Levodopa: faster and better word learning in normal humans. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Levodopa: faster and better word learning in normal humans. Dopamine is a potent modulator of learning and has been implicated in the encoding of stimulus salience. Repetition, however, as required for the acquisition and reacquisition of sensorimotor or cognitive skills (e.g., in aphasia therapy), decreases salience. We here tested whether increasing brain levels of dopamine during repetitive training improves learning success. Forty healthy humans took 100mg of the dopamine precursor levodopa

1993 to May 2006 were collected and analyzed.Among the 25 cases, 16 were female and the F:M ratio was 1.78:1. The relapsing-remitting type was seen in 21 cases, the secondary progressive MS in 3 cases and the classification was impossible in one case. The mean age of onset was 6.7 years (2-12) with various initial symptoms including visual loss (11 cases), cortical symptoms (8 cases with seizures, consciousness disturbance, aphasia and apraxia, etc.), myeleterosis (3 cases), symptoms of brainstem

presented (10%). Measures of small vessel disease were associated with an increased prevalence of dysarthria, dysphagia, parkinsonian gait disorder, rigidity, and hypokinesia and as well to hemimotor dysfunction. By contrast, in the presence of a cerebral infarct, aphasia, hemianopia, hemimotor dysfunction, hemisensory dysfunction, reflex asymmetry, and hemiplegic gait disorder were more often observed.The specific neurological signs demonstrated by patients with VaD differ according to type of imaged (...) cerebrovascular disease. Even in people who meet restrictive VaD criteria, small vessel disease is often seen with more subtle signs, including extrapyramidal signs, whereas large vessel disease is more often related to lateralized sensorimotor changes and aphasia.

3796. Assessment of Depression After Stroke. A Comparison of Different Screening Instruments. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Assessment of Depression After Stroke. A Comparison of Different Screening Instruments. Assessing poststroke depression may be complicated by aphasia, other cognitive deficits, and several somatic stroke-related symptoms. We studied the possible differences in performance of some commonly used instruments in screening depression after stroke.We compared the Beck Depression Inventory, Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression, Visual Analogue Mood Scale, proxy assessment, and Clinical Global (...) of these instruments clearly stood apart from the others. Proxy ratings should be used with caution, and the use of the Visual Analogue Mood Scale among patients with aphasia and other cognitive impairments cannot be recommended.

cases of FTLD-U are TDP-43 proteinopathies, there are exceptions. We describe six cases of early onset FTD with FTLD-U pathology that was negative for TDP-43, which we refer to as 'atypical' FTLD-U. All cases were sporadic and had very early onset FTD (mean age = 35 years), characterized by severe progressive psychobehavioural abnormalities in the absence of significant aphasia, cognitive-intellectual dysfunction or motor features. The neuropathological features were highly consistent, with small
