Two-year Follow-up Results of Magnetic Resonance Imaging-guided Focused Ultrasound Unilateral Thalamotomy for Medication-refractory Essential Tremor.

Conclusion MRgFUS unilateral Vim thalamotomy could be adopted as one of the therapeutic options for intractable ET. Further improvement of tremor in the targeted hand or contralateral Vim thalamotomy may be necessary to improve the quality of life. PMID: 32641664 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: This report represents the first description of a co-occurrence of multiple composite PCC-GN and neuroblastic tumors. The long timeline of the presentation of the NENs/neuroblastic tumors from infancy to adulthood requires a lifelong follow-up for this patient. Moreover, the importance of this case lies in the presence of a novel MAX gene variant deleterious, harmful, and causative of pathology, confirmed by Sanger sequencing and never been associated before with multiple composite PCC-GN. The present case underlines the importance of precision medicine and molecular diagnoses for hereditary pheochromocytomas a...

ConclusionsThe use of MRgFUS for thalamotomy provides a non-invasive and well-tolerated method for treating ET, which usually only requires monitored anesthesia care sedation. Nevertheless, there are several predictable side effects that require contingency planning including the personnel and means to resolve them.

CONCLUSION: Patients with IBS in Germany are likely not receiving sufficient diag- nostic evaluation in conformity with the relevant guidelines. The high prevalence of comorbid mental disorders and other pain syndromes implies that the complaints of patients with IBS need to be more comprehensively evaluated and treated.

Conclusion: The efficacy of brainstem gliomas—treated with CyberKnife is efficacious with mild toxicity. Introduction Brainstem gliomas (BSGs) account for 5–15% of brain tumors and more likely happen in children (1). BSGs constitute at least 20% of childhood brain neoplasms (2), and the peak age is 7–9 years. In contrast, BSGs is rare in the adult population and account for only 1.5–2.5% of brain glioma, with a peak age of 40–70 years (1). Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma(DIPG) was the most common type of BSG is that could invade the whole brainstem including midbrain, pons as well as me...

This report supports that the novel mutation of RNF139 p.Q650R probably serve as a key role in HBs progression. Introduction Central nervous system hemangioblastomas (HBs) are benign tumors which usually occur in cerebellum (1), and the pathogenesis of HBs is still unknown. According to the revised World Health Organization (WHO) classification of tumors of the nervous system published in 2000, HBs were classified to the tumors of uncertain histogenesis. The morphology code of the International Classification of Diseases for Oncology (ICD-O)is 9161/1, grade I. HBs are composed of mesenchymal cells and abundant capi...

Headache and monocular visual disturbance are worrisome pediatric presenting complaints in the emergency department. Appropriate and timely initial evaluation is critical. Most would opt for urgent computer tomography in such cases. Pediatric optic neuritis is a rare condition and is better evaluated by magnetic resonance imaging. With the increase in the use and scope of bedside ultrasound, there might be a potential role for transorbital ultrasound to be part of the emergency department evaluation of pediatric optic neuritis.
