Chronic testicular pain although becoming very common in our patient population poses a challenge to the physician, the patient and his family. The pathogenesis of chronic orchialgia (CO) is not well understood. The objective of this paper is to review the current literature on chronic testicular pain and its management and to propose an algorithm for its treatment. Abstracts, original papers and review articles were reviewed during a literature search using words such as testicular pain, CO, and microsurgical anatomy of spermatic cord...

BACKGROUND: Multiple distal anterior cerebral artery (DACA) aneurysms appear as rare findings. Simultaneous treatment of such lesions can be particularly challenging. A report of three aneurysms on the same parent artery has not been reported before. We report a case of three DACA aneurysms treated within one microsurgical operation in a patient with eight aneurysms. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 62-year-old woman incidentally presented with multiple various size saccular aneurysms, including tree on the left DACA...

Objective Tubal sterilization is a widespread method of contraception. Post-sterilization regret is encountered, despite careful consideration prior to the procedure. Two treatment options are available for women after having had tubal sterilization: microsurgical reversal and IVF treatment. Recent improvements in laparoscopy have allowed tubal reanastomosis to be performed. This study aimed to evaluate the reproductive outcome after laparoscopic tubal reanastomosis and surgical features of the patients. Methods From June 2007 to January 2010, 27 patients with bilateral tubal ligation who underwent laparoscopic tubal reanastomosis were evaluated retrospectively...

Rathke cleft cysts (RCCs) and pituitary adenomas (PAs) are thought to have a common embryonic ancestry. Despite this, PAs with a concomitant RCC inside the sella turcica are rarely observed; ectopic pituitary tumors are also rare. We present the case of a 65-year-old woman with an ectopic RCC in the sphenoid sinus and outside of the sella turcica concomitant with an adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH)-staining, clinically silent PA. The patient presented with headache but no endocrine or visual disturbances...

INTRODUCTION: Smoking increases perioperative risk regarding wound healing, infection rate and failure of microsurgical procedures. There is no present consensus about plastic and aesthetic surgical indications concerning smoking patients. The aim of our study is to analyze French plastic surgeons practices concerning smokers. METHOD: A questionnaire was send by e-mail to French plastic surgeons in order to evaluate their own operative indications: patient information about smoking dangers, pre- and postoperative delay of smoking cessation, type of intervention carried out, smoking cessation supports, use of screening test and smoking limit associated to surgery refusing were studied...

BACKGROUND: Although the term paraclival carotid pervades recent skull base literature, no clear consensus exists regarding boundaries or anatomical segments. OBJECTIVE: To reconcile various internal carotid artery (ICA) nomenclatures for transcranial and endoscopic-endonasal perspectives, we reexamined the transition between lacerum (C3) and cavernous (C4) segments using a C1-C7 segments schema. In this cadaveric study, we obtained a 360°-circumferential view integrating histological, microsurgical, endoscopic, and neuroradiological analyses of this C3-C4 region and identified a distinct transitional segment...

INTRODUCTION: Creating vascularized nerve conduits for treatment of nerve gaps have been researched, however, these methods need microsurgical anastomosis thereby complicating the nerve repair process. Thus, the concept of vascularized nerve conduits has not popularized up till now. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of vascularized and non-vascularized biological conduits on peripheral nerve regeneration. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Following ethical board approval, 15 Sprague-Dawley rats were used in the study...

BACKGROUND: Several recent reports have implicated vascular ectasia and vessel contact with dysfunction of the visual apparatus. A subset of patients with pre-chiasmatic visual deterioration have an ectatic internal carotid artery (ICA) that displaces and flattens the optic nerve (ON) rostrally as the ON exits the skull base. We will offer a proposed pathophysiological mechanism and describe a straightforward surgical technique for dealing with this interesting problem. METHODS: Via an ipsilateral pterional craniotomy, the bony roof of the optic canal is removed...

INTRODUCTION: Microsurgical techniques are essential in plastic surgery; however, inconsistent training practices, acquiring these skills can be difficult. To address this, we designed a standardised laboratory-based microsurgical training programme, which allows trainees to develop their dexterity, visuospatial ability, operative flow and judgement as separate components. METHOD: Thirty trainees completed an initial microsurgical anastomosis on a chicken femoral artery, assessed using the structured assessment of microsurgical skills (SAMS) method...

OBJECTIVE The management of vestibular schwannoma (VS) remains controversial. One commonly cited advantage of microsurgery over other treatment modalities is that tumor removal provides the greatest chance of long-term cure. However, there are very few publications with long-term follow-up to support this assertion. The purpose of the current study is to report the very long-term risk of recurrence among a large historical cohort of patients who underwent microsurgical resection. METHODS The authors retrospectively reviewed the medical records of patients who had undergone primary microsurgical resection of unilateral VS via a retrosigmoid approach performed by a single neurosurgeon-neurotologist team between January 1980 and December 1999...

Intramedullary spinal cord tumors (IMSCTs) represent a rare entity, accounting for 4%-10% of all central nervous system tumors. Microsurgical resection of IMSCTs is currently considered the primary treatment modality. Intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IONM) has been shown to aid in maximizing tumor resection and minimizing neurological morbidity, consequently improving patient outcome. The gold standard for IONM to date is multimodality monitoring, consisting of both somatosensory evoked potentials, as well as muscle-based transcranial electric motor evoked potentials (tcMEPs)...

BACKGROUND: Posterior cerebral artery (PCA) aneurysms are rare and the majority are fusiform in shape. Proximal occlusion of PCA represents a treatment option for these lesions. However, this procedure carries a high risk of ischemic complications. OBJECTIVE: To describe the technique of trapping a fusiform PCA aneurysm and revascularization of the distal PCA using a superficial temporal artery (STA) graft through the same microsurgical approach. METHODS: From September 2012 to October 2014, we retrospectively identified 3 patients harboring a fusiform PCA aneurysm (P2 segment aneurysm) who underwent trapping of the aneurysm and reconstruction of the distal PCA through the same subtemporal approach...
