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...

BACKGROUND: Gene therapy is regarded as a new and promising therapeutic modality for cancers, and adenovirus is one of the most frequently used vectors. However, because of low or absent coxsackievirus and adenovirus receptor levels on the surface of many kinds of tumor cells, the efficiency of adenovirus infection of target tumor cells may be low. Meanwhile, gene therapy by a single vector carrying two or more anti-oncogenes can improve treatment effects and reduce side effects from vectors...

INTRODUCTION: There is still insufficient appreciation whether neuropsychological rehabilitation and psychotherapy are effective in attenuating depression following traumatic brain injury (TBI). This knowledge gap was addressed in the present systematic review and meta- analysis of the literature. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: We conducted electronic database (Medline, PsychINFO, Scopus) searches (time frame: January 1, 2005 - December 31, 2015) for clinical studies that had tested neuropsychological rehabilitation and psychotherapy in adult TBI survivors with depression...

The traditional principle underlying oncological neurosurgery is to remove a tumor mass displacing the brain in order to increase survival. Recently, advances in connectomics enabled an improved understanding of cerebral processing, and led to a paradigmatic shift in tumor surgery based upon interactions between neurooncology and cognitive neurosciences. First, glioma is not a focal tumor invaginated within the parenchyma but a diffuse neoplastic disease migrating in the brain. This concept resulted in a new surgical ideology, i...

INTRODUCTION: Managing neurogenic shock following acute traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) is challenging. Current guidelines target mean arterial pressure (MAP) above 85-90 mmHg to maintain cord perfusion and reduce ischemia/secondary injury. While early vasopressor utilization has been associated with improved outcomes, recent updates regarding indications of specific vasopressors for refinement of existing guidelines are needed. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: A comprehensive search was conducted using the National Library of Medicine PubMed database between 01/2010 and 01/2017 targeting vasopressor use in the setting of neurogenic/spinal shock and/or hypotension following acute SCI in adult patients...

BACKGROUND: Spinal epidural abscess (SEA) is a rarely encountered clinical entity during the course of Brucella infection. METHODS: We reported 17 patients diagnosed with Brucellar SEA for a mean follow-up of 15 months. Spinal epidural abscess was detected by magnetic resonance imaging in all cases. Brucella diagnosis was established by serological tests. Patients were administered antibiotics for duration of 6 to 16 weeks. RESULTS: SEA was localized in lumbar region in 9 patients, thoracic in 4 patients, cervical in 3 patients, both thoracic and lumbar in 1 patient...

BACKGROUND: This prospective, randomized controlled study compared the changes in acid-base balance and serum electrolytes with the use of intravenous balanced and non-balanced crystalloid solutions intraoperatively during elective neurosurgery. METHODS: Thirty consented adult patients who underwent craniotomy were randomly allocated into two groups of 15 patients each. The non-balanced group received 0.9% normal saline while the balanced group received Sterofundin®ISO as the intraoperative fluid for maintenance...
