Objective: Characterize the morbidity associated with vestibular schwannoma (VS) as documented by treating providers. Study Design: Retrospective analysis of the MarketScan database. Setting: MarketScan database. Subjects and Methods: A study of morbidity in VS patients who underwent treatment between 2002 and 2012 was conducted. A detailed account of morbidity at multiple time points before and after treatment was described. Results: Of 3,355 patients treated for VS, 2,029 (60.5%) underwent surgery and 1,326 (39.5%) radiation. The average (SD) age of diagnosis was 52.5 (12.1) years. Patients were followed fo...

In this study, we aimed to elucidate the clinical features, neuroimaging characteristics and pathogenesis of IJVS, and explore their possible correlations, in attempt to provide useful clues for clinical diagnosis and treatment. Forty-three eligible patients with unilateral or bilateral IJVS confirmed by contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance venography of the brain and neck were enrolled in this study. Magnetic resonance imaging along with magnetic resonance angiography or computed tomography angiography was applied to identify the radiological pattern of parenchymal or arterial lesions. Cerebral perfusion and metabolism we...

Abstract Arteriovenous fistulae of the internal maxillary artery are exceedingly rare, with less than 30 cases reported in the literature. Most of these lesions are congenital, iatrogenic, or posttraumatic. The most common presentation of internal maxillary artery fistulae is pulsatile tinnitus and headache. Because these lesions are single-hole fistulae, they can be easily cured with endovascular techniques. The authors present a case of a patient who presented to their institution with a several-year history of pulsatile tinnitus who was found to have an internal maxillary artery arteriovenous fistula, which was...

The objective of the study was to assess the effect of carotid and vertebral artery stenosis on the function of the hearing and equilibrium organ on the basis of diagnostic audiological examinations including pure-tone threshold audiometry, impedance audiometry, otoacoustic emission tests and brainstem auditory evoked potential tests. The study was conducted in 63 patients (32 males, 31 females) aged 45 –75 years, presenting with carotid and vertebral artery stenosis and treated at the Vascular Surgery Clinic of the University Clinical Hospital in Wrocław. Patients were stratified into two subgroups according to the...

We report the unusual case of a male patient with UC and ICH in whom both conditions resolved with mesalazine therapy. Patient concerns: A 48-year-old Caucasian man presented to our department in June 2016 for decreased vision, transient visual obscuration, pulsatile tinnitus and headaches of 7 months duration. Bilateral optic disc swelling was found at fundus examination. Brain MRI excluded any brain tumor and lumbar puncture showed cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) opening pressure of 26 cm of water with normal CSF contents. Diagnoses: Idiopathic ICH was suspected. Interventions: The patient was managed with oral acet...

Conclusions: VSS is likely associated with either hyperactive visual cortices or, alternatively, impaired processing of simultaneous afferent information projecting to cortex. VSS likely results from widespread disturbance of sensory processing resulting in sensory misperception. There may be a number of syndromes associated with impaired sensory processing resulting in sensory misperception, including migraine, persistent perceptual postural dizziness, and tinnitus, which overlap with VSS. Elucidation of abnormality in one defined syndrome may provide a path forward for investigating all.
