Predictive value of the hemispheric magnetic resonance angiography score on the development of indirect pial synangiosis after combined revascularization surgery for adult moyamoya disease
ConclusionHemispheric MRA score was a predictive factor for indirect bypass development in adult patients who underwent a combined bypass procedure for MMD. Predicting poor indirect bypass development may lead to future tailored bypass surgeries for MMD. (Source: Acta Neurochirurgica)

Biportal endoscopic cervical open-door laminoplasty to treat cervical spondylotic myelopathy
ConclusionWe successfully performed the cervical open door laminoplasty using biportal endoscopic approach. Biportal endoscopic cervical open-door laminoplasty may be a minimally invasive technique that can prevent complications related with open surgery. (Source: Acta Neurochirurgica)

Chemical angioplasty vs. balloon plus chemical angioplasty for delayed cerebral ischemia: a pilot study of PbtO2 outcomes
ConclusionCombined balloon plus chemical angioplasty results in more sustained improvement in brain tissue oxygenation compared with chemical angioplasty alone. Our findings suggest that PbtO2 is a useful tool for monitoring the response to angioplasty in vasospasm. (Source: Acta Neurochirurgica)

Systemic immune-inflammation index in dural arteriovenous fistula: a feasible biomarker reflecting its clinical characteristics
ConclusionElevation of the SII in patients with advanced DAVF and its decrease following endovascular treatment suggests that the SII reflects the disease condition and indicates its potential as a promising biomarker. (Source: Acta Neurochirurgica)

Microsurgical resection of a large petroclival meningioma through an extended retrosigmoid approach: how I do it
ConclusionThe extended retrosigmoid approach allowed for a safe gross total resection of the tumor, as confirmed by the postoperative MRI. The patient did not experience any new postoperative deficit, despite a transient diplopia, and was discharged on postoperative day 7. (Source: Acta Neurochirurgica)

Effect of different positive end expiratory pressure levels on optic nerve sheath diameter in patients with or without midline shift who are undergoing supratentorial craniotomy
ConclusionsThe ONSD in adults undergoing supratentorial tumor craniotomy, PEEP values up to 5 cmH2O, appears not to be associated with an ICP increase; however, the ONSD exceeded the cutoff for increased ICP when a PEEP of 10 cmH2O was applied in patients with midline shift.
