Headache? Intracranial vascular lesions could be to blame!
This study investigates the prevalence of intracranial vascular lesions in neurologically intact patients experiencing acute severe headache using CT angiography. 6.6% of the patients had intracranial vascular lesions on CTA, showing that this technique is useful for identifying lesions in patients with acute severe headache.
- Unruptured cerebral aneurysms may be a cause of acute severe headache.

Coblation vertebroplasty: making cementation of patients unsuitable for vertebroplasty possible!
Coblation allows for a low-pressure injection and can reduce risks of extravasation of cement into the spinal canal. 23 coblation procedures were performed resulting a success rate of 56% and no complications. Patients who would typically be unsuitable for vertebroplasty can be treated with this coblation procedure, with low complication risks.
- Treatment of vertebral compression fractures with possible posterior wall defects is controversial.
- Coblation before ...
