Vestibular Neurectomy for Intractable Vertigo: Case Series and Evaluation of Role of Endoscopic Assistance in Retrolabyrinthine Craniotomy

Conclusion RLVNS is a safe and efficacious procedure for the treatment of vertigo; the surgical endoscope may be a useful adjunct in selected cases. Patients with MD may expect the greatest benefit from surgery. [...] Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart · New YorkArticle in Thieme eJournals: Table of contents  |  Abstract  |  Full text

Cholesteatoma is an ear disease based on a locally destructive noncancerous conglomerate of epidermis and keratin debris. Abnormal growth of stratified keratinized squamous epithelium in the temporal bone causes destruction of the outer and middle ear, potentially leading to hearing impairment, facial palsy, vertigo, lateral sinus thrombosis, and intracranial complications. Although cholesteatoma is effectively treated by surgical resection (mastoidectomy), the lack of effective and nonsurgical therapies potentially results in fatal consequences, establishing the need for a comprehensive investigation of cholesteatoma pathogenesis.

AbstractThe aim of this study is to present and report the perioperative outcomes, intraoperative, and postoperative complications according to the Clavien —Dindo classification. Clinical data of 448 patients who underwent 3D laparoscopy in a single center over 1 year was retrospectively analyzed, and the postoperative complications were stratified adopting the Clavien—Dindo (CD) classification. During the study period, 448 patients underwent gyne clogical 3 D laparoscopic surgery, TLH (259), laparoscopic myomectomy(104), surgery for endometriosis(20), ovarian cyst(24), and miscellaneous(41). The overall r...

"He's working with a med student shadowing him today. Do you mind being seen by her first?" In the spirit of education, I said, "No, of course not." She had long strawberry blond hair and big glasses. We talked. "What brought you here today?" she asked. "Well, I was seen in the ER three weeks ago for a blood clot in my leg and they told me I needed to follow up." I watched her write down "Deep Vein Thrombosis." "It wasn't a deep vein thrombosis, but they did find a blood clot, and told me to follow up with you." She marked out "Deep Vein Thrombosis" and ...

ConclusionOur preliminary experience with endoluminal reconstruction of intradural dissecting VA aneurysms with the PED confirms this treatment approach to be feasible and safe with good short-term angiographic and clinical outcomes.Long-term and larger cohort studies will need to provide further information on durable aneurysm obliteration in response to hemodynamic intravascular flow changes and the occurrence of delayed hemorrhage and in-stent thrombosis. The promising results obtained so far, however, appear to support the use of flow diverter in the treatment of dissecting intracranial VA aneurysms; especially in circ...
