Authors: Pérez Silguero D, Pérez Silguero MÁ, Pérez-Silguero Jiménez S, Encinas Pisa P Abstract The case concerns a 54-year-old woman, with a history of fibromyalgia and normal preoperative ocular and systemic study, who presented with a long-lasting disabling photophobia, after sequential bilateral cataract surgery without complications. Photophobia was accompanied by good uncorrected VA, with no pain or subjective eye discomfort, without migraine or indicators of psychic conflict. It was refractory to any prescribed treatment of the ocular surface, finally responding to oral ant...
Conclusions: A 3.5 or 5 mL fluoroscopy-guided GON injection of methylene blue successfully stains the GON, TON, and suboccipital nerves. This suggests that such an injection would generate blockade of all three nerve groups, which may contribute to the efficacy of the block for CGH. A volume of 3.5 ml may be enough for the performance of a fluoroscopy-guided GON block for therapeutic purposes. PMID: 33029267 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusion: As we could not identify any other cause for the subacute subdural hematoma, hemorrhage from the meningioma was the most probable cause, and thus, we decided to remove it along with clot evacuation. Based on neuropathological findings, we propose an alternative mechanism for this spontaneous hemorrhage from the meningioma, involving the place where the periphery of the lesion insertion, the dura mater as the origin of the hemorrhage. Knowledge of this association could help define the best treatment in such cases. PMID: 33024602 [PubMed]
Conclusion: Proximal occlusion of the basilar artery combined with STA-SCA bypass was successful in preventing rerupture of BAD and ensuring blood flow in the upper basilar region. Although there is controversy regarding acute treatment for ruptured BAD, direct proximal occlusion with sufficient revascularization using bypass skull base technique may be one of the optimal treatments even in this era of endovascular treatment.
