BACKGROUND: Incisional hernia formation has been reported as high as 20% within 1 year following midline laparotomy. Since hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy is likely to impair wound healing, we sought to investigate the incidence of incisional hernia formation and abdominal wall rupture following cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy. METHODS: Consecutive patients with radiographic evidence of peritoneal metastases were scheduled for cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy at the Comprehensive Cancer Center, University Hospital Tuebingen, Germany...

Acute compression on the brainstem or acute increase in intracranial pressure may induce non-epileptic events varying from tonic seizures to axial rigidity with motor automatism, sometimes clearly characterized by decerebrate or decorticate paroxysmal posturing. The EEG correlate is characterized by diffuse asynchronous slow waves of variable amplitude. The mechanism behind such events, known as "cerebellar seizures or fits", is linked to cerebellar herniation and brainstem compression and is not of cortical origin...

Multi-unit recording has been one of the most widely used techniques to investigate the correlation between multiple neuronal activities and behavior. However, a common problem of currently used multi-channel electrodes is their physical weakness. In this study, we developed a novel multi-channel electrode with sufficient physical strength to penetrate a thickened dura mater. This electrode consists of low-cost materials and is easily fabricated, and it enables recording without removing dura mater, thereby reducing the risk of inflammation, infection, or brain herniation...

OBJECTIVE Although rare, frontoethmoidal meningoencephaloceles continue to pose a challenge to neurosurgeons and plastic reconstructive surgeons. Especially when faced with limited infrastructure and resources, establishing reliable and safe surgical techniques is of paramount importance. The authors present a case series in order to evaluate a previously proposed concise approach for meningoencephalocele repair, with a focus on sustainability of internationally driven surgical efforts. METHODS Between 2001 and 2016, a total of 246 patients with frontoethmoidal meningoencephaloceles were treated using a 1-stage extracranial approach by a single surgeon in the Department of Neurosurgery of the Yangon General Hospital in Yangon, Myanmar, initially assisted by European surgeons...

BACKGROUND: Herniated intervertebral disc disease (HIVD) is a common cause of lower back and leg pain. Percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) is indicated when non-surgical treatments such as medication and interventions are intractable. Ruptured discs and loose fragments inside discs are removed during PELD. Nerve root decompression is usually assessed by visualizing the free movement of the traversing nerve root or epidural fat, the free passage of a probe into the epidural space, the depression of the annulus, and the removal of the expected ruptured discs and loose fragments based on preoperative magnetic resonance images (MRI)...

BACKGROUND: The most common causes of pain following lumbar spinal fusions are residual herniation, or foraminal fibrosis and foraminal stenosis that is ignored, untreated, or undertreated. The original surgeon may advise his patient that nothing more can be done in his opinion that the nerve was visually decompressed by the original surgery. Post-operative imaging or electrophysiological assessment may be inadequate to explain all the reasons for residual or recurrent symptoms. Treatment of failed lumbar spinal fusions by repeat traditional open revision surgery usually incorporates more extensive decompression causing increased instability and back pain...

Treating lumbar disease at the intervertebal foramina is controversial because we lack an approach providing sufficient exposure and preserving spinal stability. The primary objective of this study was to investigate the feasibility of the transforaminal fenestration (TFF) approach for treating lumbar disease involving the intervertebal foramina.In the anatomic study of 30 adult cadaveric lumbar spine specimens, the TFF approach was used from L1 to S1. The scope of resection was measured manually and on 3D CT images...

Following a pneumonectomy, excessive mediastinal shift can cause rare complications involving the post-pneumonectomy cavity, which can become the seat of herniation of the residual lung and of the heart. We herein report an even more rare event, entailing an impressive herniation of the actual entire post-pneumonectomy cavity through an intercostal space, which developed spontaneously nearly 3 years after surgery. Surgical excision of the hernia sac and repair of the defect with polypropylene mesh provided adequate treatment and good cosmetic results...

Sciatic nerve compression due to a ganglion cyst around the posterior aspect of the hip joint is not commonly described in literature. We report a rare case of a 63-year-old man with a ganglion cyst around his hip joint, who presented with symptoms of sciatica. After excision of the cyst, the patient was symptom free. A high index of clinical doubt and detailed clinical examination is required for non-palpable cystic lesions in close proximity to the sciatic nerve in patients presenting with symptoms of sciatica and in patients with concomitant of lumbar disk herniation...

BACKGROUND: Chronic lumbar radiculopathy has a lifetime prevalence of 5.3% in men and 3.7% in women. It usually resolves spontaneously, but up to 30% cases will have pronounced symptoms even after one year. AIMS: A prospective randomized single-blind study was conducted to compare the efficacy of caudal epidural steroid injection and selective nerve root block in management of pain and disability in cases of lumbar disc herniation. METHODS: Eighty patients with confirmed single-level lumbar disc herniation were equally divided in two groups: (a) caudal epidural and (b) selective nerve root block group, by a computer-generated random allocation method...

STUDY DESIGN: A study of mechanically-induced herniation in punctured ovine discs followed by structural analysis. OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether an annular puncture influences the path that herniation takes by providing direct passage for nucleus through the annulus and therefore whether it increases the risk of acute herniation from overload at the site of damage independent of any longer-term degeneration. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: 10 years after treatment with discography both degenerative changes and frequency of herniation have been shown to increase compared to untreated discs...

BACKGROUND: Hemangioblastomas (HGBs) are the most common primary intra-axial posterior fossa tumor in adults. Although spontaneous hemorrhage of these tumors is exceedingly rare, despite their vascular nature, we describe a case of recurrent hemorrhage with associated tonsillar herniation, and demonstrate that a surgical approach can provide a suitable outcome. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 54-year-old female with von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) syndrome presented with acute loss of consciousness and Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) was 4...
