Prominent publications by Knut Gustav Wester

KOL-Index: 11018 . The aim of this study was to explore whether reported pain and functional disability in whiplash-associated disorders (WAD) patients is associated with lesions to specific soft tissue structures in the upper cervical spine, as assessed by MRI. Pre-selected structures for MRI assessment included the alar ligaments, the transverse ligament, the tectorial and the posterior atlanto-occipital ...

KOL-Index: 10351 . OBJECTIVES: Arachnoid cysts (AC) are benign, congenital malformations of the leptomeninges, with a predilection for the temporal fossa. In our clinical experience, patients with temporal AC often complain of dizziness and imbalance. However, these symptoms and the effect of surgery on them have not been studied before. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Dizziness and imbalance in patients with ...

KOL-Index: 10152 . OBJECT: If, when, and how children with arachnoid cysts should undergo surgery has been a matter of debate. In the present study the authors describe long-term clinical and neuroimaging results in children with intracranial arachnoid cysts, treated in accordance with the authors' policy of performing surgery in most of these cases. METHODS: The study included 48 pediatric patients (age < ...

KOL-Index: 9171 . In the present study, we compared magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of soft tissue structures in the upper cervical spine between whiplash-associated disorder (WAD) patients and population-based control persons, and examined whether MRI-verified abnormalities in WAD patients were related to accident-related factors hypothesized to be of importance for severity of injury. A total of ...

KOL-Index: 8495 . BACKGROUND: Arachnoid cyst (AC) fluid has not previously been compared with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from the same patient. ACs are commonly referred to as containing "CSF-like fluid". The objective of this study was to characterize AC fluid by clinical chemistry and to compare AC fluid to CSF drawn from the same patient. Such comparative analysis can shed further light on the mechanisms ...

KOL-Index: 8232 . BACKGROUND: We have gradually adopted a liberal attitude towards surgical decompression of arachnoid cysts. This study describes the results from our institution. METHODS: Long term clinical and neuroimaging results of 156 adult patients (aged > or = 16 years) operated on for arachnoid cysts in our department during the period January 1987 to September 2004 were assessed based on their ...

KOL-Index: 8191 . BackgroundWorking with patients with intracranial aneurysms, we have developed a clinical suspicion that there may be differences in the rupture rate of aneurysms depending on the aneurysm’s anatomical location. The aim of the study was to examine the anatomical distribution of ruptured and unruptured intracranial aneurysms in a defined population.MethodWe retrospectively included all ...

KOL-Index: 8034 . OBJECT: The aim of this study was to examine the distribution of intracranial arachnoid cysts in a large and unselected patient population with special emphasis on sidedness and sex distribution. METHODS: In total, 299 patients with 305 arachnoid cysts were studied. These patients were consecutively referred to our department during a 20-year period from a well-defined geographical area ...

KOL-Index: 7958 . BACKGROUND: We have previously presented an alternative method for surgical decompression of intracranial arachnoid cysts. This minimally invasive method, with insertion of an internal shunt from the cyst to the subdural compartment, seemed to be an efficient and simple, and hence promising technique. The aim of the present study was to investigate the long-term results of this ...

KOL-Index: 7648 . BACKGROUND: There is no previous prospective study on the outcome of surgical decompression of intracranial arachnoid cysts (AC). OBJECTIVE: To investigate if surgical fenestration for AC leads to change in patients' health-related quality of life. METHODS: Prospective study including 76 adult patients operated for AC. Patients responded to Short Form-36 and Glasgow Benefit Inventory ...

KOL-Index: 7632 . OBJECTIVE: To study the distribution of intracranial arachnoid cysts in a large and nonbiased patient population. METHODS: One hundred twenty-six patients with 132 arachnoid cysts were studied. Patients were consecutively referred to our department during a 10-year period from a well-defined geographical area with a stable population. RESULTS: The cysts had a strong predilection for the ...

KOL-Index: 7598 . BACKGROUND: Intracranial arachnoid cysts have been shown to yield cognitive impairment over a range of basic mental functions, and these functions normalize after surgical cyst decompression. We wanted to investigate whether such cysts may also impair executive cognitive functions, and whether surgical cyst decompression leads to an improvement. METHODS: This study included 22 patients ...

KOL-Index: 7521 . Benign external hydrocephalus in infants, characterized by macrocephaly and typical neuroimaging findings, is considered as a self-limiting condition and is therefore rarely treated. This review concerns all aspects of this condition: etiology, neuroimaging, symptoms and clinical findings, treatment, and outcome, with emphasis on management. The review is based on a systematic search in ...

KOL-Index: 7432 . BACKGROUND: Arachnoid cysts (AC) can cause a wide spectrum of clinical symptoms. Only a limited number of studies have investigated intracranial pressure in patients with AC. We wished to investigate the relationship between intracystic pressure, preoperative complaints and postoperative symptom relief in adult patients operated on for a unilateral temporal AC. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This ...
