Fibular fractures in the setting of an unstable ankle joint require surgical fixation; however, several factors contradict open surgical correction. Severe soft tissue compromise can delay adequate fracture reduction and preclude the standard incisional approach. The soft tissue envelope in the setting of obesity, diabetes, and/or peripheral vascular disease further complicates definitive treatment. Poorly timed open fixation can lead to delayed healing of the incision site, with wound breakdown and the potential for hardware failure...

BACKGROUND: Volar locking plate fixation of distal radius fractures is commonly performed because of its good clinical outcomes. The flexor carpi radialis (FCR) approach is one of the most popular approaches to dissecting the volar side of the distal radius because of its simplicity and safety. We describe an extremely rare case of an absent FCR identified during a volar approach for fixation of a distal radius fracture. CASE PRESENTATION: A 59-year-old woman with distal radius fracture underwent surgery using the usual FCR approach and volar locking plate...

OBJECTIVE: Trigeminal neuralgia is a rare feature of basilar impression, a complication of osteochondrodysplastic disorders. Microvascular decompression is difficult in medically refractory cases. Gamma knife radiosurgery (GKS) is effective for classical trigeminal neuralgia and we first applied this GKS for a patient suffering from trigeminal neuralgia with basilar impression complicated by osteogenesis imperfecta. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: An 18-year-old man with typeⅠosteogenesis imperfecta presented with a 2-year history of typical left trigeminal neuralgia affecting the ophthalmic, maxillary, and mandibular nerves...

BACKGROUND: Routine implant removal after fracture healing remains controversial. However, it has been suggested that implant removal should be performed in cases of joint impingement, painful scar adhesion, and implant malposition. Entrance selection is relatively critical in patients with poor soft tissue conditions or sloughing coverage. We propose an innovative technique using endoscopy. METHODS: Consecutive surgeries of endoscopic implant removal performed between 2005 and 2016 by a single experienced arthroscopic surgeon were included...

Acute neurovascular events, though rare, can complicate pregnancy and postpartum period. It is important to be aware of these clinical conditions for reducing maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. In this review, we present a few important neurovascular emergencies and their imaging manifestations by various imaging modalities-computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and digital subtraction angiography (DSA)-which presented at our institution in the peripartum period.

PURPOSE: Arthroscopic reduction and internal fixation for coronoid process fractures has been proposed to overcome limitations of open approaches. Currently, arthroscopy is most frequently used to assist insertion of a retrograde guide wire for a retrograde cannulated screw. The present anatomical study presents an innovative arthroscopic technique to introduce an antegrade guide wire from an accessory anteromedial portal and evaluates its safety and reproducibility. METHODS: Six fresh-frozen cadaver specimens were obtained and prepared to mimic an arthroscopic setting...

OBJECTIVE There has been much debate regarding the optimal surgical approach for resecting olfactory groove meningiomas (OGMs). In this paper, the authors analyzed the factors involved in approach selection and reviewed the surgical outcomes in a series of OGMs. METHODS A retrospective review of 28 consecutive OGMs from a prospective database was conducted. Each tumor was treated via one of 3 approaches: transbasal approach (n = 15), pure endoscopic endonasal approach (EEA; n = 5), and combined (endoscope-assisted) transbasal-EEA (n = 8)...

OBJECTIVE Anterior skull base meningiomas are benign lesions that cause neurological symptoms through mass effect on adjacent neurovascular structures. While traditional transcranial approaches have proven to be effective at removing these tumors, minimally invasive approaches that involve using an endoscope offer the possibility of reducing brain and nerve retraction, minimizing incision size, and speeding patient recovery; however, appropriate case selection and results in large series are lacking. METHODS The authors developed an algorithm for selecting a supraorbital keyhole minicraniotomy (SKM) for olfactory groove meningiomas or an expanded endoscopic endonasal approach (EEA) for tuberculum sella (TS) or planum sphenoidale (PS) meningiomas based on the presence or absence of olfaction and the anatomical extent of the tumor...

Although non-traumatic postoperative delayed epidural hematoma (EDH) after posterior fossa surgery is rare, measures to prevent it need to be pursued due to its catastrophic results. In this report, we describe a surgical strategy to prevent delayed EDH after posterior fossa surgery. Key dural tacking sutures were performed at the medial and cephalic margin of the dura. We have performed key dural tacking sutures on 454 patients with neurovascular compression syndrome during microvascular decompression surgeries since April 2016, and no hemorrhagic complication, including delayed EDH, occurred...

INTRODUCTION: Neurovascular conflict is the most accepted hypothesis for the cause for trigeminal neuralgia. Microvascular decompression of the trigeminal nerve is the most common surgical treatment for these patients. However, despite advances in diagnostic techniques, neurovascular conflict is sometimes not detected during surgery. The aim of this paper is to systematically review all the options available to best manage this scenario. RESULTS: Several techniques that could be used during microvascular decompression for trigeminal neuralgia in the absence of neurovascular conflict have been described...

Aim: Gonadal hormones are essential for reproductive function, but can act on neural and other organ systems, and are probably the cause of the large majority of known sex differences in function and disease. The aim of this review is to provide evidence for this hypothesis in relation to eye disorders and to retinopathies in particular. Methods: Epidemiological studies and research articles were reviewed. Results: Analysis of the biological basis for a relationship between eye diseases and hormones showed that estrogen, androgen, and progesterone receptors are present throughout the eye and that these steroids are locally produced in ocular tissues...

The adrenogenital syndrome is an autosomal recessive disorder in which an enzyme defect in the steroid pathway leads to excessive prenatal exposure of androgens. In the female fetus, masculinization of the external genitalia is observed. Surgery aims for functional and aesthetical reconstruction. Many techniques have been described. A video of our modified pull-through reconstruction technique is hereby presented. A retrospective descriptive database was created with patients who underwent genitoplasty for a CAH-associated genital condition...
