BACKGROUND: Confusion exists among neurosurgeons when choosing and implementing an appropriate study design and statistical methods when conducting research. We noticed particular difficulty with mislabeled and inappropriate case-control studies in the neurosurgical literature. OBJECTIVE: To quantify and to rigorously review this issue for appropriateness in publication and to establish quality of the manuscripts using a rigorous technique. METHODS: Following a literature search, pairs drawn from 5 independent reviewers evaluated a complete sample of 125 manuscripts claiming to be case-control studies with respect to basic case-control criteria...

BACKGROUND: Delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) has a strong impact on outcome of patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Positive effect of antiplatelet therapy on DCI rates has been supposed upon smaller SAH series. OBJECTIVE: To analyze the benefit/risk profile of antiplatelet use in SAH patients. METHODS: This retrospective case-control study was based on institutional observational cohort with 994 SAH patients treated between January 2003 and June 2016...

Scott L Zuckerman, Behrang Amini, Sun-Ho Lee, Ganesh Rao, Claudio E Tatsui, Laurence D Rhines
BACKGROUND: Few studies have assessed the prognostic importance of preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan findings in patients undergoing en bloc resection of sacral chordomas. OBJECTIVE: To (1) report in-depth imaging characteristics of sacral chordomas, (2) describe the patterns of local and distant recurrence, and (3) determine imaging predictors of overall survival (OS) and local recurrence (LR). METHODS: This retrospective case series was obtained from a prospectively maintained spine database from 1995 to 2016...

BACKGROUND: Given recent differing findings following 2 randomized clinical trials on degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis (DLS) surgery, there is a need to better define how subsets of patients fare following surgery. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the impact of obesity on patient-reported outcomes (PROs) following DLS surgery. METHODS: A total of 12 high-enrolling sites were queried, and we found 797 patients undergoing surgery for grade 1 DLS...

BACKGROUND: Intraoperative stimulation of the posterior inferior frontal lobe (IFL) induces speech arrest, which is often interpreted as demonstration of essential language function. However, prior reports have described "negative motor areas" in the IFL, sites where stimulation halts ongoing limb motor activity. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the spatial and functional relationship between IFL speech arrest areas and negative motor areas (NMAs). METHODS: In this retrospective cohort study, intraoperative stimulation mapping was performed to localize speech and motor function, as well as arrest of hand movement, hand posture, and guitar playing in a set of patients undergoing awake craniotomy for dominant hemisphere pathologies...

BACKGROUND: Flow diversion has become an accepted endovascular treatment modality for intracranial aneurysms. Studies comparing different types of flow diverters are currently lacking. OBJECTIVE: To perform a propensity score-matched cohort study comparing the Pipeline Embolization Device (PED; Medtronic, Dublin, Ireland) and Flow Redirection Endoluminal Device (FRED; MicroVention, Aliso Viejo, California). METHODS: Aneurysms of the internal carotid artery proximal to the communicating segment treated with PED at 2 neurovascular centers in the United States were matched with aneurysms treated in the European FRED study using propensity scoring...

BACKGROUND: Tarlov cysts (TC) are commonly found spinal perineural cysts. Symptomatic TCs are rare, however, and there is no consensus on their pathogenesis and optimal management. OBJECTIVE: To characterize cyst growth in patients with symptomatic TCs. METHODS: This is a retrospective cohort study of 28 subjects, evaluated for symptomatic TCs (2011-2017). Each of the subjects had multiple magnetic resonance imaging (MRIs) across time and was included in a natural history analysis...

Radiation therapy (RT) plays a critical role in the overall management of many central nervous system (CNS) tumors. Advances in RT treatment planning, with techniques such as intensity modulated radiation therapy, volumetric modulated arc therapy, and stereotactic radiosurgery, now allow the delivery of highly conformal dose with great precision. These techniques rely on high-resolution 3-dimensional anatomical imaging modalities such as computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans to accurately and reliably define CNS targets and normal tissue avoidance structures...
