A benign tumor of the eighth cranial nerve; more accurately referred to as a schwannoma, because it is composed of Schwann cells, which produce myelin.
Dilation or ballooning of an artery wall as a result of injury, disease, or congenital condition.
Arteriovenus malformation AVG
A collection of blood vessels with abnormal communication between the arteries and veins. It may be the result of injury, infection, or a congenital condition.
Cells that support the nerve cells -- neurons -- of the brain and spinal cord by providing nutrients and insulation.
A technique used to occlude a blood vessel. A variety of materials, including platinum coils and microscopic plasrtic particles, are injected into the vessel under fluoroscopy control to stop active bleeding or prevent bleeding.
Intracranial pressure ICP
The pressure within the skull exerted by the brain tissue, blood, and cerebrospinal fluid.
A computerized method of locating a point in space or in tissue, using coordinates in three dimensions. Duyring stereotactic surgery, the precise location of a tumor or other tissue can be identified from outside the body. The tissue can then be targets for destruction. The term originates from the Greek words stereo, meaning three dimensional, and tacos meaning touched.
Cranial Nerve V
TRIGEMINAL NERVE A sensory nerve that controls the sensation of the face, forehead, mouth, nose, and top of the head. (orbital + maxillary region)
Cranial Nerve VII
FACIAL NERVE A motor nerve that controls the muscle in the face and scalp. (facial expressions)
Cranial Nerve X
VAGUS NERVE Innervates the pharyngeal and laryngeal muscles, heart, pancreas, lungs, and digestive systems. (hypotension)
Cranial Nerve XI
ACCESSORY NERVE Has two parts, a a cranial portion and a spinal portion. Cranial root; joins vagus -- VA to laryngeal muscles; spinal root C1-C5; innervates trapezius and sternocleidomastoid muscles.
A contrast medium is injected into the subarachnoid space for visualization of the spinal cord and nerve roots.
derma bond. Super glue used in surgery. Close the edges of the skin. Can be used for a brain aneurysm because the super glue encases it.
Surgical removal of the bony arches of one or more vertebrae. It is performed to treat compression fractures, dislocations, herniated nuclear pulposus, and cord tumors and to stimulate the spinal cord. Spinal fusion with cages, rods, screws, and/or bone graft is used to stabilize the spine if several laminae are removed.
