system implementation that was not existent at the time of those encounters. Average hourly drain output before symptom onset was 9.2 ml per hour, or a daily average of 221 ml per day. The total volume of intraoperative CSF loss was not recorded, but all CSF leaks were repaired immediately upon detection. Intracranial Hemorrhage All 8 patients were symptomatic postoperatively. Symptom onset ranged from immediately after surgery to postoperative Day 3, and symptoms included headache (n = 1), aphasia (n = 1), seizure (n = 1), and altered mental status (n = 4). No

during infancy. The overall mortality rate is estimated at 65%. 2 Intracranial hemorrhage is a rare complication of MLT; only 3 such cases have been reported, 5 , 8 and none of these has been presented in the neurosurgical literature. We describe the case of a female with a prenatally diagnosed intracranial mass who, at birth, had multiple cutaneous lesions suggestive of MLT. Case Report Prenatal Examination Hydrocephalus and cerebellar hypoplasia interpreted as a Dandy-Walker variant were diagnosed in a female by using prenatal cranial ultrasound

small subdural hematoma evacuated. Then, at a depth of 3 cm, a well-organized intracerebral hematoma was found and evacuated. Pre-infusion AHF levels ranged from 25% to 36%, and post-infusion values ranged from 56% to 75%. The patient still has dysphasia and severe motor impairment despite physical therapy accompanied by AHF replacement. Discussion In hemophilia, intracranial hemorrhage may follow slight trauma. The initial trauma was quite mild in three of our patients. In the fourth patient, trauma was suspected, due to the presence of the hematoma on

S pontaneous intracranial hemorrhage in childhood has been a relatively neglected subject in pediatric and neurosurgical journals, although it has been known since 1871 5 that children may die from intracranial hemorrhage due to a ruptured congenital saccular aneurysm. Most reports of juvenile cases of bleeding aneurysm and arteriovenous malformation describe single cases. 3, 6, 7, 11, 12, 24, 28, 29, 33 It is very difficult to find information on the subject of intracranial hemorrhage of other etiology; hemophilia is a notable exception.

reliably measure the level of anticoagulation. In addition, there is no pharmacological antidote available for dabigatran. These drawbacks are challenging for physicians in the setting of intracranial hemorrhage. Although some management algorithms have been proposed, 26 , 28 , 36 there is no available evidence on how to best care for patients taking dabigatran who experience intracranial hemorrhage. Herein, we provide an overview of challenges related to the novel oral anticoagulant dabigatran in the setting of intracranial hemorrhage. Intracranial Hemorrhage in

A nnually , over 10 million people worldwide are affected by traumatic brain injury (TBI) resulting in hospitalization or death. 2 Some variant of traumatic intracranial hemorrhage (tICH) will occur in approximately one-third to one-half of these patients. 19 Traumatic ICH accounts for 40%–50% of trauma fatalities, making it the leading cause of death in that population as well as a significant contributor to long-term disability. 8 , 24 The impact of tICH on morbidity and mortality demonstrates the importance of early identification for aggressive medical and

hours, and serial CT scans revealed progressive resolution of the hematoma. The remaining three patients were treated surgically. The only complication with Autoplex has been hypofibrinogenemia in children receiving repeated doses. This was not encountered in our Case 1. Although of promising future, we do not think that Autoplex can replace surgery in cases where intracranial hemorrhage endangers life. It is, however, an irreplaceable adjuvant in the management of patients with Factor VIII inhibitors who sustain intracranial bleeding, and who would have otherwise

intracranial hemorrhage. Case Report This 45-year-old woman presented with sudden holocranial headache followed by loss of consciousness that lasted for 2 hours 1 day prior to admission. Afterward, she experienced altered sensory perception and urinary incontinence. There was no previous history of a similar episode and no history of fever or trauma. She was not known to be a diabetic or to be hypertensive. Examination On examination, the patient's blood pressure was 110/70 mm Hg. She opened her eyes on command; pupils were 3 mm in size and reacted briskly to

I ntracranial hemorrhage is one of the most serious clinical manifestations of intracranial DAVFs. 1 , 6–9 , 11 Many studies have focused on risk factors for aggressive clinical behavior. 1 , 4 , 14 However, there are no series that have specifically evaluated the clinical characteristics and outcome of patients who suffered an intracranial hemorrhage as presenting manifestation of a DAVF. 4 , 6 , 11 , 13 In this study, we analyze clinical features and outcome of 28 patients with intracranial hemorrhage from a DAVF who were evaluated and treated at 2
