W.Effect of single-application topical ophthalmic anesthesia in patients with trigeminal neuralgia: a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trialTo evaluate the reported benefit of ipsilateral single-application ophthalmic anesthetic eyedrops in patients with typical trigeminal neuralgia, a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial was performed. Fortyseven patients were randomly assigned to receive two drops of either proparacaine (...Randomized trial; Ophthalmic anesthesia1994
14 Couldwell, William T.; Schloesser, Peter E.Hemorrhage from moyamoya-like vessels associated with a cerebral arteriovenous malformationThe authors describe a case of subarachnoid hemorrhage from moyamoya-like vessels associated with an arteriovenous malformation (AVM) in a 44-year-old Hispanic man who presented with severe headache. The AVM was located in the left parietal lobe and the ipsilateral middle cerebral artery was occlude...Moyamoya-like vessels; Arteriovenous malformation; Ischemia MeSH: Arteriovenous malformations2004
15 Couldwell, William T.Immunology and immunotherapy of intrinsic glial tumorsImmunological aspects of glial neoplasms have been actively investigated for the past several years with particular focus on academic, diagnostic, and therapeutic objectives.
