The results of our analysis demonstrated that there were, significantly more balloon cells in the T1-high-signal group than the, non-T1-high-signal group, but no evidence of differences regarding, dysmorphic neurons, the severity of gliosis, or calcifications. The mean transmantle sign thickness by thick images was 12.3mm, by thin images was 8.9mm, and in the patients undetected by thick FLAIR was 3.5mm. ), National Center of Neurology and Psychiatry, Kodaira, Tokyo, Japan. According to Palmini's classification system, these lesions were categorized as focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) type II. that depressive episodes could be neurotoxic per se. There was a significant association between the presence of cortical thickening (p = 0.002) and the "transmantle sign" (p < 0.001) and a correct MRI diagnosis of FCD II. Methods: J Neurosurg. proved focal cortical dysplasia. TMS indicated a high likelihood of a seizure-free outcome. In this report, we demonstrate the utility of double inversion recovery MRI in the detection of paediatric epileptogenic abnormalities, promoted primarily by increased lesion conspicuity due to complementary suppression of both cerebrospinal fluid and normal white matter signal. mechanisms in resected cortical dysplasia.

The transmantle sign was usually a focal finding, typically confined to 1 or several gyri with well-circumscribed epileptic tissue. © 2015 The Authors. Focal cortical dysplasias (FCDs) are a range of malformations of cortical development each with specific histopathological features. The T1 high signal in the TMS may thus be regarded as, reported patients with FCD who had shown T1, hyperintensity during the first year of their lives, but it was diffi-, cult to identify them by the process of myelination. The transmantle sign was significantly more frequent in the IIb subgroup (p = 0.003). Among MRI abnormalities, the transmantle sign is a very useful evidence, frequently related with FCD type IIb. We evaluated the imaging and pathologic findings to identify the causes of the T1 high signal in the transmantle sign. Images hosted on other servers: Micropolygyria marked by a focal small gyri. ), National Center of Neurology and Psychiatry, Kodaira, Tokyo, Japan. Although the transmantle sign detection yield is high by routine imaging protocols for epilepsy at 3T, most centers around the world have access to 1.5T MR technology and FLE patients often receive negative imaging … In regard to this field of application, specific requirements apply. groups based on the pathologic focal cortical dysplasia subtype and T1 signal of the transmantle sign.

Our study showed that patients with FCD III have poor surgical outcome. RESULTS: Nine of the 25 patients had a T1-high-signal transmantle sign; the other 16 patients did not. For transmantle sign this ranged from 19 % to 81 % , and in our series it is 67 %. Most commonly encountered pathologies include mesial temporal lobe sclerosis (that can be uni- or bilateral and may occur as a “dual” pathology in conjunction with other epileptogenic lesions), malformations of cortical development (including disorders of neuronal proliferation, migration or organization) and epileptogenic tumors (such as gangliogliomas, dysembryoblastic neuroepithelial tumors). , Photomicrograph shows many balloon cells, ). The 3D isotropic thin-slice FLAIR detected a transmantle sign in eleven (55.0%) patients, thereby increasing the transmantle sign detection yield by 57.4%.

MRI positivity was more frequent in the patients with FCD IIb than in those with FCD IIa (91 % vs. 51 %), and the detection rate of FCD II was also better in the patients with type IIb (88 % vs. 32 %). We will provide an overview of the quantitative MRI measures available, their link with biophysical properties and finally the potential application of quantitative MRI to the problem of FCD subtyping. Of the 16 patients with no T1-high-signal transmantle sign, 13, were diagnosed as having type IIb (group B), and the other 3 patients, as type IIa (group C). Although histological abnormalities occurring during postnatal maturation of the brain challenge any neuropathological classification in this group of young patients, we propose that these findings are classified according to FCD type I. In order to gain insight into the possible correlations between FCD II pathological pattern and different clinical characteristics (including clinical information, imaging characteristics and surgical outcomes), different clinicopathological characteristics in two types of FCD II were analyzed (especially in FCD IIb). images with magnetization transfer contrast. All statistical analyses were per-, The details of the clinical demographics and radiologic and, pathologic findings of the 25 patients with FCD with the TMS are, FLAIR images obtained at 13 months of age demonstrate focal hyperintensity in the white matter, of the right frontal lobe, representing the TMS (, summarized in the On-line Table.

In the magnetic resonance image, some FCDs exhibit a transmantle sign or are termed transmantle dysplasia (TD), a funnel-shaped lesion from the cortex that passes through the white matter (WM) to the superolateral ventricle (3, 7). This neurotoxicity hypothesis of major depressive disorder, apart from allowing a different way of communicating with our patients and to facilitate their compliance, strengthen the necessity to prevent recurrent depressive episodes. Crossref, Medline, Google Scholar; 10. Cortical thickness and blurring of gray-white matter junction were more common in isolated FCD than in FCD type III, but most MRI features failed to differentiate between FCD types I and II, and only the transmantle sign was specific for FCD type II.

Indicates article with supplemental on-line table. Neuron-specific isoforms of Endophilin-B1, also known as Bax-interacting factor-1 (Bif-1), are neuroprotective. It is characterized by an area of signal abnormality extending radially inward toward the lateral ventricle from the cortical surface and was first described in a subset of FCD. Future research linking quantitative MRI to FCD histological properties should improve clinical protocols, allow better characterisation of lesions in vivo and tailored surgical planning to the individual. A total of 69 patients were included, and 68.1% of patients became seizure free. Patients who underwent complete resection of MRI and ECoG abnormalities (12 of 13 patients) became seizure free. 3.2. In CD type II, it was demonstrated that balloon cells do not initiate epileptic activity, whereas dysmorphic cytomegalic and immature neurons play an important role in generation and propagation of epileptic discharges. The transmantle sign is a distinctive imaging marker of focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) type II in frontal lobe epilepsy (FLE), which is revealed predominantly by fluid-attenuation inversion recovery (FLAIR) sequences. Images of a 27-year-old male with refractory occipital lobe epilepsy. However, most intriguing was our finding of a microcolumnar arrangement of cortical neurons in layer III. By introducing 3D thin-slice isotropic FLAIR, false-negative reports can be reduced without reference for higher MR field structural scanning or other modalities, and more FLE patients can benefit from epilepsy surgery candidacy. Copyright 2019 by American Society of Neuroradiology. At least two empyemas (E) are seen in the right hemithorax. Focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) type II is a major cause of drug-resistant epilepsy. This review will cover histological, genetic and radiological features of FCD following the ILAE classification and will explain how quantitative voxel- and surface-based techniques can characterise these features. The transmantle sign is also associated with the presence of hypomyelination and balloon cells in white matter underlying the dysplastic lesion [12, 24].

Thirteen patients underwent resective surgery and 1 underwent multiple subpial transections with vagus nerve stimulator placement. All these characteristics may assist in their earlier diagnosis and improve the predictability of surgical management. Although the transmantle sign detection yield is high by routine imaging protocols for epilepsy at 3T, most centers around the world have access to 1.5T MR technology and FLE patients often receive negative imaging reports. Focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) represents a spectrum of developmental cortical abnormalities and is one of the most common causes of intractable epilepsy in children and young adults. In patients with medication-refractory epilepsy, structural abnormalities can be seen in up to 85% of cases when employing a dedicated MR imaging protocol and when being read by trained Neuroradiologists.

Even in the radiology, patients need to be transferred. Results: in the investigation of patients with tuberous sclerosis. Patients with FCD type IIb had earlier seizure onset compared with those with FCD type IIa. This transmantle sign is almost exclusively found in FCD type II. Takayama Y; Department of Neurosurgery (N.I. FLAIR images were obtained using the same parameters. Failure to detect FCD and similar lesions encountered in patients with tuberous sclerosis can have significant clinical consequences, such as preventing surgical intervention for medically refractory epilepsy and misguiding prognostic information regarding cognitive development. According to the current ILAE classification system, thology of FCD is classified into 3 types: Type I has isolated cor-, tical dyslamination, type II has dysmorphic neurons with or with-, out balloon cells in addition to cortical dyslamination, and type.
