#1
Wing M Ho, Alice Görke, Ondra Petr, Claudius Thomé
Spinal vascular malformations are a rare heterogenous entity of spinal lesions with abnormal blood vessels. They may occur extra- and intradurally, peri- and intramedullary, with confined or complex configuration, and at various levels of the spine. Associated clinical symptoms are extremely variable and may range from diffuse pain, to progressive myelopathy, and even to acute hemorrhage with severe neurological deficits. Often, the patients present with significant spinal cord injury before the spinal arteriovenous lesions are diagnosed...

BACKGROUND: Patients presenting with an early GCS score of 3-5 after blunt or penetrating skull-brain assaults are categorized as having sustained a very severe Traumatic Brain Injury (vs-TBI). This category is often overlooked in literature. Impact on patients and families lives however is huge and the question "whether to surgically treat or not" frequently poses a dilemma to treating physicians. Little is known about mortality and outcome, compared to what is known for the group of severe TBI patients (s-TBI) (GCS 3- 8)...

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a common cause of permanent disability for which clinical management remains suboptimal. Elevated intracranial pressure (ICP) is a common sequela following TBI leading to death and permanent disability if not properly managed. While clinicians often employ stepwise acute care algorithms to reduce ICP, a number of patients will fail medical management and may be considered for surgical decompression. Decompressive craniectomy (DC) involves removing a component of the bony skull to allow cerebral tissue expansion in order to reduce ICP...

BACKGROUND: Spinal meningiomas are benign, well-circumscribed and slowly growing intradural tumors that compress the spinal cord. Hereby, a retrospective review of 61 spinal meningioma cases evaluated in terms of demographic, clinical, pathological and radiological features to predict the early postoperative functional outcomes. METHODS: Patients' records and MRI images of all the histologically confirmed spinal meningioma cases that underwent surgical resection at two university hospitals from January 2005 to June 2016 were retrospectively reviewed...

BACKGROUND: The subependymal vascularization of the cerebral ventricles has been described in anatomical studies on human specimens. Its identification in vivo during neuroendoscopic navigation could have anatomical interest and may lead to a safer ventricular navigation, also avoiding unexpected bleeding. The traditional endoscopic visualization allows the certain identification of only the main vessels. In this study we describe the features of the subependymal vascular network (SEVN) enhanced by sodium fluorescein (SF) angiography...

Focused ultrasound (FUS) produces a region of high intensity at the focal zone of the beam but with minimal effects at adjacent areas, allowing the sonication of deep targets throughout the body. Despite early obstacles to transmitting ultrasound energy through the skull, recent advances in ultrasound technology, software, and real-time monitoring have resulted in a renewed interest in the clinical applications of transcranial FUS. Following extensive pre- clinical studies, ultrasound-induced thermal ablation has been approved by several countries for the treatment of essential tremor, Parkinson's disease, obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression, and neuropathic pain...

INTRODUCTION: Focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) type IIb is a frequent cause of pharmacoresistant epilepsy. However, intraoperative identification of the pathological tissue still remains a challenge despite the use of neuronavigation, particularly when it lies in eloquent areas. CASE REPORT: We here report a case of intraoperative identification of a right frontal FCD type IIB through ultrasound assisted neuronavigation during awake surgery in a patient with drug-resistant epilepsy...

BACKGROUND: The study of age-related diseases like chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is of high interest, considered the general ageing of the population. This investigation aimed to identify the main clinical characteristics of CSDH patients, to evaluate the impact of the disease on quality of life, its treatment and co-morbidities/complications and to compare our data with other surgical series published over the past 5 years. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study including all consecutive patients operated for CSDH between January 1st 2006 and December 31st 2013 at the Unit of Neurosurgery of our hospital was carried out...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the relevance of a systematic postoperative CT scan after neurosurgical craniotomy and to identify predictive factors of complications. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This retrospective analysis included all the patients at our institution who benefited from a cerebral postoperative CT scan within 24 hours post-craniotomy. Patient characteristics and neuroimaging abnormalities were recorded. Predictive factors were identified using a recursive partitioning analysis...
