Retroclival epidural haematoma (REDH) has been reported infrequently. It is a rare entity which is probably underdiagnosed. It is most commonly seen in the paediatric population and is generally associated with high-velocity injuries. We report three cases of paediatric patients diagnosed with REDHs: two of them secondary to high-energy trauma related to a motor-vehicle accident and the other a low-energy trauma after a slip while playing football. All three patients were managed conservatively by cervical immobilisation with favourable outcome...

BACKGROUND: Hybrid room treatment (HRT) provides the surgeon immediate intraoperative angiography control of aneurysm occlusion and vessel patency. Since it is relatively resource demanding, in clinical routine HRT is reserved for elective cases. However, since its introduction in our department in 2008, several random cases of ruptured intracranial aneurysms (IAs) have been treated in the HR. This study aims to compare the clinical and radiological outcomes of these cases with cases treated conventionally using a matched pair analysis...

OBJECTIVE: To perform planned subtotal resection followed by gamma knife surgery (GKRS) in a series of patients with large vestibular schwannoma (VS), aiming at an optimal functional outcome for facial and cochlear nerves. METHODS: Patient characteristics, surgical and dosimetric features, and outcome were collected prospectively at the time of treatment and during the follow-up. RESULTS: A consecutive series of 32 patients was treated between July 2010 and June 2016...

Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is thought to result from endothelial dysfunction and breakdown of the blood-brain barrier with subsequent vasogenic edema. Abrupt hypertension has been identified as one of its risk factors. We present a rare case of PRES in the anterior circulation with sudden onset of left hemiparesis and rapid neurological deterioration on the basis of hypertensive crisis. Due to refractory intracranial hypertension, the patient required emergent right decompressive craniectomy...

BACKGROUND: As the anatomical three-dimensional (3D) positional relationship around the anterior clinoid process (ACP) is complex, experience of many surgeries is necessary to understand anterior clinoidectomy (AC). We prepared a 3D synthetic image from computed tomographic angiography (CTA) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data and a rapid prototyping (RP) model from the imaging data using a 3D printer. The objective of this study was to evaluate anatomical reproduction of the 3D synthetic image and intraosseous region after AC in the RP model...

#12
Arthur R Kurzbuch, Shailendra Magdum
The objective of decompressive surgery for Chiari I malformation is to create additional space to accommodate the ectopic cerebellar tonsils and to improve the flow of cerebrospinal fluid. To the best of our knowledge, we report the first case of a patient with previous Chiari I decompression presenting 5 years after surgery at the same time as an intraosseous C2 and a suboccipital intradiploic cerebrospinal fluid accumulation. Because of the progressive nature of the C2 cerebrospinal fluid collection causing bone destruction, surgical management was indicated...

BACKGROUND: Dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) of the craniocervical junction are uncommon vascular lesions, which often require surgical treatment even in the endovascular era. METHODS: Most commonly, the fistula is placed laterally, and surgical ligation is performed through a lateral suboccipital craniotomy. After dural opening, the area is inspected, and the arterialized vein is identified emerging from the dura, often adjacent to the entry point of the vertebral artery, and ligated...

Ihsan Abbas Al-Baldawi
BACKGROUND: There are multiple approaches to reach the sellar region using microscope or endoscope, which are the old sublabial, with its post-operative morbidities, or the uni-nostril transseptal, which has a limited working field. Another technique is the direct transnasal, which is associated with tissue sacrifice, and lastly the bi-nostril (one side transseptal-other side transnasal), aiming to preserve one of the septal flaps. METHOD: We have 27 case studies using a new technique in which we access the sphenoid endoscopicaly through the nasal septum from both nostrils under the mucoperichondrial-periosteal flap...

From time to time it is thoughtful and productive to review a medical field and reflect upon what are the major issues that need to be addressed and what is being done to do so. This review article is not meant to be all-inclusive but rather focuses on four evolving areas in the field of peripheral nerve disorders and treatments: (1) nerve surgery under ultrasound guidance using a new ultra-minimally invasive thread technique; (2) evolving magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound imaging techniques that are helping to both diagnose and treat a variety of peripheral nerve problems including entrapment neuropathies, traumatic nerve injuries, and masses arising from nerves; (3) promoting recovery after nerve injury using electrical stimulation; and (4) developing animal models to reproduce a severe nerve injury (neurotmetic grade in continuity) that requires a surgical intervention and repair...

We present the case of a de novo vertebral artery dissecting aneurysm (VADA) after endovascular trapping of a ruptured VADA on the contralateral side. The first ruptured VADA involved the posterior inferior cerebellar artery, which was successfully treated by endovascular internal trapping using a stent. A follow-up study at 3 months revealed a de novo VADA on the contralateral side. The second VADA was successfully embolized using coils while normal arterial flow in the vertebral artery was preserved using a stent...

BACKGROUND: Lesions of the superior cerebellar surface, pineal region, lateral and dorsal midbrain and mesial temporal lobe are challenging to treat and often require neurosurgical intervention. METHODS: The paramedian variation of the supracerebellar infratentorial approach utilizes the downward slope of the cerebellum to facilitate exposure and the lower density of cerebellar bridging veins away from the midline decreases the need to sacrifice larger venous channels...

BACKGROUND: Some intracranial aneurysms treated by stent-assisted coiling (SAC) with incomplete occlusion undergo progressive occlusion (PO) during follow-up period. We analyzed the predictors for the occurrence of PO. METHODS: Among 74 cerebral aneurysms treated by SAC using the Enterprise or Neuroform stents from 2010 to 2015, we included 43 aneurysms with occlusion grade of neck remnant (NR, n = 36) or residual aneurysm (RA, n = 7) at the post-procedure. We defined PO as improvement in occlusion grade from RA to NR, or from NR or RA to complete occlusion on angiographic follow-up imaging at 6 months after the procedure...

Bobble-head doll syndrome (BHDS) is a rare entity, characterized by antero-posterior head bobbing, which is of the type "yes-yes." Less frequently, having a head movement of the type "no-no" is described. We report an unusual case of an 80-year-old man with a cystic mass of the lamina quadrigemina, extending to the posterior fossa. We conclude that ventriculocystocisternotomy associated with a cystoperitoneal shunt is an effective treatment for a symptomatic giant arachnoid cyst in the lamina quadrigemina.
