BACKGROUND: Some intractable cases of postcraniotomy infection, which can involve compromised skin, an open frontal air sinus, and residual epidural dead space, have been reported. In such cases, reconstructing the scalp and skull is challenging. METHODS: Between 2009 and 2016, the author treated 12 patients with recalcitrant postcraniotomy surgical site infections with latissimus dorsi (LD) free flaps. The patients' ages ranged from 37 to 79 years (mean, 63.5 years), and their underlying diseases included subarachnoid hemorrhaging (n = 5), brain tumors (n = 4), and cerebral arteriovenous malformations (n = 3)...

In incidental aneurysms, endovascular treatment can lead to post-procedural headaches. We studied the difference of surgical clipping vs. endovascular coiling in concern to post-procedural headaches in patients with ruptured aneurysms. Sixty-seven patients with aneurysmal subarachnoidal haemorrhage were treated in our department from September 1(st) 2015 - September 1(st) 2016. 43 Patients were included in the study and the rest was excluded because of late recovery or high-grade subarachnoid bleedings. Twenty-two were surgical treated and twenty-one were interventionally treated...

OBJECTIVE: Spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage is mostly caused by the rupture of an aneurysm. Neurogenic stunned myocardium (NSM) is one of the most frequent complications caused by aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH). The possible pathogenesis of NSM may be that the catecholamine peak resulting from aSAH leads to subendocardial ischemia or coronary artery spasm. We designed this meta-analysis to find out whether beta-blockers (BB) can significantly reduce the incidence of NSM and improve the outcomes of aSAH...

OBJECTIVE: After aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH), prognosis is affected heavily by the presence of delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI). There is growing recognition of ultra-early angiographic vasospasm (UEAV) occurring within 48 hours of aSAH; however, its relationship with DCI and ultimately prognosis remains unclear. METHODS: Various databases limited to the English language through September 2016 were searched systematically. Eligible studies were those comparing UEAV with control non-UEAV outcomes and follow-up...
