INTRODUCTION: Schwannomas involving the occulomotor cranial nerves  (CNs; III, IV and VI), can be disabling, due to the associated diplopia and decreased quality of life and are extremely rare. We evaluated the role of Gamma Knife surgery (GKS) in these cases. METHODS: Five patients with CN IV and VI schwannomas (three and two, respectively) were treated in Lausanne University Hospital between 2010 and 2015. Four benefitted from upfront GKS and one from a combined approach (planned subtotal resection followed by GKS), due to a large preoperative tumour volume (size, 3 × 2 × 2...

BACKGROUND: Superior semicircular canal dehiscence (SSCD) is a disorder of the skull base that is gaining increasing recognition among neurosurgeons. Traditionally, the middle cranial fossa (MCF) approach has been used for the surgical repair of SSCD. However, the transmastoid (TM) approach is an alternative strategy that has demonstrated promising results. METHODS: We performed independent searches of a popular database to identify studies that described outcomes following the surgical repair of SSCD through MCF and TM approaches...

BACKGROUND: Chronic pain is a disabling condition that adversely affects patient quality of life. The dorsal root entry zone lesioning procedure (DREZotomy) is a modality used to treat intractable pain caused by insults to neural structures. This study aimed to investigate the efficacy of and the factors that determine the outcome of microsurgical DREZotomy (MDT). METHOD: All consecutive patients who underwent MDT for treatment of intractable pain during September 2008 to December 2016 were enrolled...

BACKGROUND: The outcome following traumatic brain injury (TBI) is heterogeneous and poorly defined and physical disability scales like the extended Glasgow Outcome Score (GOSE) while providing valuation information in terms of broad categorisation of outcome are unlikely to capture the full spectrum of deficits. Quality of life questionnaires such as SF-36 are emerging as potential tools to help characterise factors important to patients' recovery. This study assessed the association between physical disability and subjective health rating...

OBJECTIVE: To perform a systematic review on commonly measured cerebral microdialysis (CMD) analytes and their association to: (A) patient functional outcome, (B) neurophysiologic measures, and (C) tissue outcome; after moderate/severe TBI. The aim was to provide a foundation for next-generation CMD studies and build on existing pragmatic expert guidelines for CMD. METHODS: We searched MEDLINE, BIOSIS, EMBASE, Global Health, Scopus, Cochrane Library (inception to October 2016)...

BACKGROUND: According to current evidence, adding decompressive craniectomy (DC) to best medical therapy reduces case fatality rate of malignant middle cerebral artery infarction by 50-75%. There is currently little information available regarding the outcome of subgroups, in particular of patients with extensive infarctions exceeding the territory of the middle cerebral artery. METHODS: The records of 101 patients with large hemispheric infarctions undergoing DC were retrospectively reviewed...

Patients undergoing cerebral revascularization surgery have a relatively high incidence of wound complications. We report a case of heterotopic epithelialization of the dura presenting as a non-healing scalp wound after an extracranial-intracranial (EC-IC) arterial bypass. The scalp wound was revised twice without healing. During the third revision, epithelial tissue was found growing on the dura and was removed. After the epithelial tissue was removed, the wound healed without further complications. This case illustrates the importance of thoroughly examining a non-healing wound to find the cause...

OBJECTIVE: To establish the risk of recurrence in patients with chronic subdural hematoma (cSDH) on antithrombotic treatment (AT, i.e., antiplatelets and anticoagulants). Secondary end points were perioperative morbidity and mortality between groups (AT vs. no-AT group) and exploration if timing of resumption of AT treatment (i.e., prophylactic early vs. late resumption) influenced the occurrence of thromboembolism and hematoma recurrence. MATERIALS: In a population-based consecutive cohort, we conducted a retrospective review of 763 patients undergoing primary burr hole procedures for cSDH between January 1, 2005, and December 31, 2010, at the Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden...

BACKGROUND: The clinical relevance of Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQoL) in meningioma patients has been increasingly acknowledged in recent years. Various questionnaires have been used. However, almost none of these questionnaires has been particularly developed for and/or validated in this patient group. Therefore, the aim of this study was to assess the relevance and comprehensiveness of existing HRQoL questionnaires used in meningioma research and to assess the agreement between patients and health care professionals (HCPs) on the most relevant and important HRQoL issues...

BACKGROUND: Rarely, granular cell tumor (GCT) occurs in the sellar region. The natural history of this clinical entity is not well known. This study sought to determine the clinical features and long-term outcome of GCT of the sellar region. METHODS: Institutional databases, the National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database, and PubMed/EMBASE were searched for GCT of the sellar region. Patient-level data were extracted where available, including age, sex, symptoms, tumor size and location, presumed diagnosis, surgical approach and result, subtotal resection (STR) and gross-total resection (GTR), use of radiation, and outcome...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic approaches for craniosynostosis are a growing field in pediatric neurosurgery. In metopic synostosis, previous reports for complete fronto-orbital remodeling have proposed an intervention with multiple incisions (bregmatic, tarsal, and preauricular) to open frontonasal and frontoethmoidal synostotic sutures, and orbital roof. METHODS: We propose a technique to complete all these osteotomies with a unique incision anterior to the bregmatic fontanel under 3D endoscopic vision, and review possible complications, limits, and pitfalls...
