BACKGROUND: Petrous meningiomas (PMs) represent a subset of posterior fossa tumors accounting for ∼8% of all intracranial meningiomas. Surgical treatment of PMs is challenging because of their relationships with vital neurovascular structures of the cerebellopontine angle. OBJECTIVE: To investigate independent pre- and intraoperative predictors of PM surgery outcome. METHODS: We reviewed the surgical and outcome data of patients who underwent microsurgical resection of PMs from 1997 to 2016...

Perioperative peripheral nerve injury (PNI) is a well-recognized complication of general anesthesia that continues to result in patient disability and malpractice claims. However, the multifactorial etiology of PNI is often not appreciated in malpractice claims given that most PNI is alleged to be due to errors in patient positioning. New advances in monitoring may aid anesthesiologists in the early detection of PNI. This article reviews recent studies of perioperative PNI after general anesthesia and discusses the epidemiology and potential mechanisms of injury and preventive measures...

Primary hemifacial spasm with few exceptions is due to the vascular compression of the facial nerve that can be evidenced with high resolution MRI. Microvascular decompression is the only curative treatment for this pathology. According to literature review detailed in chapter "conflicting vessels", the compression is located at the facial Root Exit Zone (REZ) in 95% of the cases, and in 5% distally at the cisternal or the intrameatal portion of the root as the sole conflict or in addition to one at brainstem/REZ...

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a life-saving technique that is widely being used in centers throughout the world. However, there is a paucity of literature surrounding the mechanisms affecting cerebral physiology while on ECMO. Studies have shown alterations in cerebral blood flow characteristics and subsequently autoregulation. Furthermore, the mechanical aspects of the ECMO circuit itself may affect cerebral circulation. The nature of these physiological/pathophysiological changes can lead to profound neurological complications...

An excess of the excitatory neurotransmitter, glutamate, in the synaptic cleft during hypoxia/ischemia provokes development of neurotoxicity and originates from the reversal of Na+ -dependent glutamate transporters located in the plasma membrane of presynaptic brain nerve terminals. Here, we have optimized an electrochemical glutamate biosensor using glutamate oxidase and developed a biosensor-based methodological approach for analysis of rates of tonic, exocytotic and transporter-mediated glutamate release from isolated rat brain nerve terminals (synaptosomes)...

Ischemia of the spinal cord remains a disastrous complication in thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) surgery. We report a case of open type I TAAA repair during which no motor evoked potentials were detectable for >1 hour after aortic cross-clamping. The creation of three intercostal artery bypasses restored spinal cord perfusion. As the patient showed only moderate clinical signs of spinal cord ischemia afterward, we underline the role of neuromonitoring to guide intercostal artery bypass implantation during TAAA surgery as the combined use of neuromonitoring and intercostal artery bypass implantation may prevent paraplegia in specific TAAA cases...

Cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) is a degenerative pathology characterized by partial or complete conduction block on intraoperative neuromonitoring. We describe a case treated using osseoligamentous decompression and durotomy for cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) release. Intraoperative monitoring demonstrated immediate signal improvement with CSF release, suggesting that clinical improvement in CSM may result from resolution of CSF flow anomalies.

OBJECTIVE: High-field intraoperative MR (ioMRI) has become increasingly available in neurosurgery centers. There is little experience with the combination of ioMRI with intraoperative neurophysiological neuromonitoring (IONM). We provide a first series of pediatric patients undergoing brain tumor surgery with 3T ioMRI and IONM. METHODS: We conducted a pilot study were we included all consecutive children operated for brain tumors between October 2013 and April 2016 where concomitant ioMRI and somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) and motor evoked potentials (MEP) were used...

INTRODUCTION: Intraoperative neuromonitoring for spinal cord stimulation uses electromyography (EMG) responses to determine myotomal coverage as a marker for dermatomal coverage. These responses are utilized to determine the orientation of the electrode. Somatosensory evoked potential (SSEP) collision testing can also be used in which sensory signals are decreased and/or eliminated when stimulation is activated. METHODS: Fifteen patients were observed in the study...

INTRODUCTION: The Frozen Elephant Trunk (FET) surgery allows correction of ascending, arch and proximal descending aortic pathology, using a hybrid prosthesis at the same time. It is a complex intervention and requires a multidisciplinary team that, besides scheduling and performing the surgery, accompanies the patient (pt) throughout the postoperative period. OBJECTIVES: To review short and medium term clinical results with this technique. METHODS: Between January 2010 and September 2017, we operated 34 patients (pts) using FET...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether monitoring cerebral oxygen tissue saturation (StO2 ) with near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and brain activity with amplitude-integrated electroencephalography (aEEG) can predict infants at risk for intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) and death in the first 72 hours of life. STUDY DESIGN: A NIRS sensor and electroencephalography leads were placed on 127 newborns <32 weeks of gestational age at birth. Ten minutes of continuous NIRS and aEEG along with heart rate, peripheral arterial oxygen saturation, fraction of inspired oxygen, and mean airway pressure measurements were obtained in the delivery room...

INTRODUCTION: Brain tissue hypoxia may contribute to preventable secondary brain injury after cardiac arrest. We developed a porcine model of opioid overdose cardiac arrest and post-arrest care including invasive, multimodal neurological monitoring of regional brain physiology. We hypothesized brain tissue hypoxia is common with usual post-arrest care and can be prevented by modifying mean arterial pressure (MAP) and arterial oxygen concentration (PaO2 ). METHODS: We induced opioid overdose and cardiac arrest in sixteen swine, attempted resuscitation after 9 minutes of apnea, and randomized resuscitated animals to three alternating 6-hour blocks of standard or titrated care...

The use of intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) in thyroid surgery has steadily increased in recent years. This technique helps to identify different nerves in and around the operation site, such as the recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) and the external branch of the superior laryngeal nerve. Particularly in patients who undergo a second operation or a complex procedure for malignancy, the technique's value has been demonstrated. However, in non-complex thyroid operations the risk of vocal cord paresis due to iatrogenic injury of the RLN is 0...
