BACKGROUND: Many psychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders are associated with mild enlargement of the lateral ventricles thought to have origins in prenatal brain development. Little is known about development of the lateral ventricles and the relationship of prenatal lateral ventricle enlargement with postnatal brain development. METHODS: We performed neonatal magnetic resonance imaging on 34 children with isolated mild ventriculomegaly (MVM; width of the atrium of the lateral ventricle >/= 1.0 cm) on prenatal ultrasound and 34 age- and sex-matched control subjects with normal prenatal ventricle size. lateral ventricle and cortical gray and white matter volumes were assessed. RESULTS: Neonates with prenatal MVM had significantly larger lateral ventricle volumes than matched control subjects (286.4%; p < .0001). CONCLUSIONS: Prenatal enlargement of the lateral ventricle is associated with enlargement of the lateral ventricles after birth, as well as greater gray matter volumes and delayed or abnormal maturation of white matter.

We injected the AT1 and AT2 angiotensin II receptor antagonists, losartan and PD123319, L-NAME, 7-nitroindazole (nitric oxide synthetase inhibitors), and FK409 (nitric oxide donor agent) into the lateral ventricles. Angiotensin II injected into the brain lateral ventricle increased MAP from 136.5 +/- 2 mm Hg to 138.5 +/- 4 mm Hg (Delta16 +/- 3 mm Hg to Delta21 +/- 3 mm Hg) for all experimental groups versus control from 116 +/- 2 mm Hg to 120 +/- 3 mm Hg (Delta3 +/- 1 mm Hg to Delta5 +/- 2 mm Hg) (P < 0.05).

OBJECTIVE: Intraventricular virtual MR endoscopic imaging of the foramen of Monro region by using three-dimensional Fourier transformation constructive interference in steady state (3DFT-CISS) magnetic resonance imaging in a patient with a unilateral congenital obstruction of the foramen of Monro by a transparent membranous septum was performed to enhance the orientation, achieve a better understanding of the pathology, and plan the surgical intervention in an endoscopic approach to the lateral ventricles. METHODS: 3DFT-CISS sequences and virtual MR endoscopic imaging were performed in a patient before and after endoscopic fenestration procedures, to communicate the lateral ventricle to the third ventricle for the treatment of unilateral ventricular enlargement.

RESULTS: Initial Glasgow Coma Scale score < 9 (P = 0.033), abundant blood in the lateral ventricle (P = 0.016), ICP elevations > 25 mmHg (P = 0.016), persistent ICP elevations > 20 mmHg (P = 0.017), and thalamic IPH location (P = 0.009) were associated with VPS on univariate analysis. CONCLUSION: A predictive shunting instrument utilizing GCS score, lateral ventricle blood, ICP measurement, and the presence of hydrocephalus may predict those patients at risk for VPS or identify those patients requiring additional CSF drainage strategies..
Multi-barreled micropipettes were used for microinjection of L-NAME or normal saline into the lateral ventricle or amygdala. Microinjection of L-NAME (0.5 mol/L,10 microl) into the lateral ventricle of brain attenuated the inhibitory effect of DPN.
Slight enlargement could be seen in lateral ventricle (n = 1) or lateral ventricle with third ventricle (n = 1).
The speed and origin of venous insufficiency influences the morphology of individual cases particularly with regard to lateral ventricle size.
A right frontal external ventricular drain was placed in the patient, resulting in decompression of only the right lateral ventricle. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging demonstrated a lobulated cyst arising from the choroid plexus of the left lateral ventricle and herniating through the foramen of Monro into the third ventricle, occluding both the foramen of Monro and the cerebral aqueduct.
Alternatively, we inoculated the vector into the lateral ventricle (LV), with or without prior intraperitoneal (i.p.) administration of mannitol.
A postnatal head ultrasound showed a large right intracerebral mass with right lateral ventricle compression, right temporal horn dilation, and right frontal horn enlargement with lateral displacement.
METHODS: From September 2004 to September 2005, 7 patients underwent endoscopic evacuation of posterial-lateral type thalamic hemorrhage that had ruptured into the lateral ventricle of the trigum and caused acute hydrocephalus. CONCLUSION: Use of a rigid endoscopic sheath in combination with an endoscope and an approach from Keen's point to the collateral trigone of the lateral ventricle improves the efficiency of evacuating thalamic hematomas and prevents shunt-dependent hydrocephalus..
Urocortin infusion into neighboring sites (lateral ventricle, medial caudate) had no effects.
At 14 and 28 days post-injury, the cortex, white matter, and hippocampus were substantially atrophied, and the lateral ventricle was enlarged.

We report such a tumor in the right lateral ventricle of a 16-year-old young man.
Galectin-1 (Gal-1) has recently been identified as a key molecule that plays important roles in the regulation of neural progenitor cell proliferation in two neurogenic regions: the subventricular zone (SVZ) of the lateral ventricle and the subgranular zone of the hippocampal dentate gyrus. Administration of Gal-1, which is known to have carbohydrate-binding ability, into the lateral ventricle increased neurogenesis in the ipsilateral SVZ and improved sensorimotor dysfunction after focal ischemia.
RESULTS: COMT(L) carriers showed a significant enlargement of the lateral ventricles (F = 7.13, p = 0.009), right lateral ventricle (F = 5.99, p = 0.017) and left lateral ventricle (F = 6.22, p = 0.015). CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that genetic variations of COMT can contribute to the enlargement of the lateral ventricles described in early phases of non-affective psychosis..
Inspection of the right lateral ventricle with a fiberscope revealed occlusion of the septum pellucidum fenestration; on observation, the right Monro foramen was covered by thick, tough granulation tissue and the left was occluded by thin membranous tissue.
