BACKGROUND: Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is a common indication for undergoing neurosurgery, but the outcome may remain limited despite timely surgical treatment. The factors potentially associated with the functional outcome have not been sufficiently investigated. We set out to identify independent predictors associated with the functional outcome after surgical treatment of CSDH, avoiding arbitrary classifications and thresholds or subjective imaging assessment. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 197 consecutive surgical cases of CSDH...

BACKGROUND: Elderly patients are increasingly operated for spinal degenerative diseases. The treatment objective is quality of life, which, in this population, is difficult to assess. Hence, patient satisfaction, although less objective, is of high importance. In this study, we have examined the relation of various functional parameters after non-fusion spinal surgery, with patient satisfaction. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A 5-year follow-up after non-fusion lumbar spine surgery on 185 elderly patients was performed...

BACKGROUND: Surgical treatment for CM without syringomyelia is still under debate. The aim of this study was to evaluate the long term outcome of surgically treated patients for CM-I without syringomyelia. METHODS: We selected all adult patients who underwent surgery for CM-I without syringomyelia between 1993 and 2010. Only patients with long term follow-up (>5 years) were included. Clinical manifestations, radiologic features, and follow-up data were analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Visual impairment (VI) due to neoplastic infiltration of the optic canal (OC) is frequently seen in skull base meningiomas representing a significant restriction in patients` quality of life. However, the delicate anatomy of this region often prevents gross total tumor resection. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the impact of intradural OC decompression and postoperative oncological procedure on preservation of visual acuity in subtotal resected skull base meningiomas...

BACKGROUND: Management of a patient with an unruptured intracranial aneurysm (UIA) who has a history of malignancy can be challenging due to considerations related to the natural history of the aneurysm and risk of recurrence or progression of malignancy. The current study presents our experience with both conservative management and interventional treatment of patients with UIAs and a remote or recent history of cancer. METHODS: Consecutive patients with a history of malignancy and UIA were classified into the following groups: Group I (diagnoses of both UIA and cancer within 3 years) and Group II (known cancer with new UIA diagnosed ≥ 3 years after cancer)...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to determine the effects of magnetically controlled growing rods surgery (MCGRS) of the scoliosis on pulmonary function in children with neuromuscular scoliosis. METHODS: Seven patients, 85.7% female (mean ± SD age: 6.7±1.2 years), with neuromuscular scoliosis (4 SMA II, 2 congenital myopathies and 1 VACTER syndrome), received MCGRS of the spine in the thoraco-lumbar area. The outcome measures were clinical features and pulmonary function (forced vital capacity [FVC] and forced expiratory volume in 1st second [FEV1], were collected...

INTRODUCTION: Insular gliomas are heterogeneous lesions whose management presents multiple challenges for their tendency to affect young patients in good neurological and cognitive conditions, their deep anatomic location and proximity with critical functional and vascular structures. The appropriate management of insular gliomas requires a multidisciplinary evidence-centred teamwork grounded on the best anatomic, neurophysiological and oncological knowledge. The present study provides a reappraisal of the management of insular gliomas based on a systematic review of the literature with the aim of guiding clinicians in the management of such tumors...

BACKGROUND: Epilepsy, which is the most common symptom accompanying gliomas, was reported as an independent favorable prognosis factor for glioma patients. However, the correlation between glioma location and epilepsy prognosis, genesis and genetic phenotypes of the glioma associated seizure (GAS) patients is far from clear, the purpose of the current study was to provide probabilistic radiographic atlases reflecting seizure susceptible regions, relationship between tumor associated biomarkers and seizure initiation and poor epilepsy prognosis areas...

BACKGROUND: Mortality is a marker of quality in neurocritical care, but it also provides potential for donors after brain death (DBD) following irreversible acute brain damage. The aim of this study was to analyse the neurointensive care unit (NICU) mortality rate and recovery of potential DBD. METHODS: We performed a 10-year prospective observational cohort computer database analysis of 6138 acute neurological and neurosurgical patients (pts, 58.2% male, mean: age 55...

OBJECT: Aim of the present study was to proof that for certain complex spinal conditions, MIDLIF technique is very convenient in terms of length of hospitalization, functional recovery and pain relief and time to back to work. METHODS: MIDLF indications were set for patients with not more than 3 unstable levels, presence of osteoporosis (alternative to cemented screws), or cardiomyopathy with anticoagulation with or without spinal stenosis, and or discopathy. Surgical difficulties, operative time, hemoglobin loss and postoperative 45 days, 6 months and one-year follow- up data are shown...

BACKGROUND: Although dysphagia is often self-limiting after anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF), its incidence, risks, and long-term outcomes remain unclear. The present study aimed to analyze dysphagia up to 5 years post-ACDF using a nation-scaled cohort. METHODS: Incidences of permanent dysphagia requiring nasogastric-tube feeding after ACDF were analyzed using three million-sample cohorts derived from the National Health Insurance Research Database of Taiwan...
