BACKGROUND: Cervical spine clearance in the pediatric trauma patient represents a particularly challenging task. Unfortunately, standardized clearance protocols for pediatric cervical clearance are poorly reported in the literature and imaging recommendations demonstrate considerable variability. With the use of a web-based survey, this study aims to define the methods utilized by pediatric trauma centers throughout North America. Specific attention was given to the identification of personnel responsible for cervical spine care, diagnostic imaging modalities used, and the presence or absence of a written pediatric cervical spine clearance protocol...

We report an urgent aggressive neurosurgery procedure for a large life-threatening intracranial bleed in a 3-year-old boy with severe haemophilia A and high titre inhibitor, managed with mega doses of recombinant-activated FVII (rFVIIa). We infused preoperatively bolus of 350 μg/kg, repeated every 2 h for 4 days. There were no bleeding complications during surgery. Afterward, rFVIIa was gradually tapered acting alternatively on dose and timing, until the ongoing schedule of 214 μg/kg every 12 h.To our knowledge this is the first report of aggressive neurosurgery in a boy with high titre inhibitor, successfully managed with high doses rFVIIa...

BACKGROUND: Deep brain stimulation (DBS) for psychiatric indications is becoming increasingly safe and effective. As a result, the treatment of these conditions by neurosurgeons is becoming more widespread and a larger part of the functional neurosurgeons' practice. Given the troubled history of the field and its current renaissance, it is important to evaluate current practices, to serve as a baseline for future comparison, and to gauge changing cultural attitudes towards invasive neuromodulation...
