Minimally invasive puncture versus conventional craniotomy for spontaneous supratentorial hemorrhage: a meta-analysis.
Conclusions The use of the minimally invasive puncture for the management of spontaneous supratentorial hemorrhage was associated with better functional outcome results, a lower mortality rate, and decreased rebleeding rates. However, because insufficient data has been published thus far, we need more robust evidence to provide a better guide for future management.

Optic pathway tumor in children: toward a new classification for neurosurgical use.
Abstract OBJECT: Optic pathway tumors (OPT) represent a challenge for pediatric neurosurgeons. Role of surgery is debated due to the high risk of iatrogenic damage, and in lasts decades it lost its importance in favor of chemotherapy. However, in some cases surgery is necessary to make biomolecular and histological diagnosis, to manage intracranial hypertension (IH) and to cooperate with medical therapies in controlling tumor relapse. With the aim to standardize selection of surgical OPT cases, we propose a simple, practical and reproducible classification. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed data of 38 pati...

Epidural Hemostasis by Autogenous Fat Graft in Minimally Invasive Surgery for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis: In Vivo Experimental Study.
CONCLUSIONS: The autologous fat graft ensured sufficient and safe epidural hemostasis without serious adverse events in minimally invasive spinal surgery, and is preferable as autologous tissue is easily and quickly harvested.

Multimodal management of ruptured cerebral micro-arteriovenous malformations: a retrospective series of 19 cases and a review of the literature.
DISCUSSION: Intracerebral hematoma (ICH) was the main clinical manifestation. In the case of negative initial angiographic assessment, patients must have supraselective angiographic exploration. In the case of conservative treatment of hematoma, endovascular obliteration and microsurgical exclusion seems to be reasonable therapeutic options, according to our observations.

Mis-diagnosed giant ovarian cyst and ventriculoperitoneal shunt malfunction.
We report the case of a 37-year-old woman treated by VPS for congenital obstructive hydrocephalus, who presented shunt dysfunction related to a voluminous abdominal cyst initially diagnosed as cerebrospinal fluid pseudocyst. The cyst was drained and the VPS was removed after endoscopic third ventriculocisternostomy (ETV). A few months later, a large new abdominal cyst appeared and was operated on. Diagnosis was rectified as massive ovarian mucinous cystadenoma. In any intra-abdominal cyst, differential diagnoses need considering to avoid mis-diagnosis in shunted patients, especially if the cyst is very large. The etiology ...

CONCLUSION: Preoperative Imaging evaluation and a detailed knowledge of the anatomy is the key of a safe and successful procedure as any variation can complicate the anterior approach. We believe that teaming up with a vascular surgeon for junior surgeons during the first anterior procedures and especially in the context of anatomical variation is recommended.

The evaluation of intracranial bypass patency in neurosurgical practice.
Abstract BACKGROUND: The patency of cranial bypasses must be carefully evaluated during and after the microsurgical procedure. Although, several imaging techniques are used to evaluate the patency of bypasses, their findings are sometimes difficult to interpret. PURPOSE: The goal of this study was to assess the consistency of different diagnostic modalities for evaluating intracranial bypass patency. PATIENTS AND METHOD: This prospective study included 19 consecutive patients treated with EC-IC or IC-IC bypass for MoyaMoya disease (MMD) or complex/giant aneurysms between June 2016 and June 2018.

Application of targeted genome sequencing to brain metastasis from non-small cell lung carcinoma: Case report.
Abstract Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is frequently associated with central nervous system metastases resulting in poor outcomes. As newer targeted therapies become available determining which patients can benefit from these therapies has remained challenging, and current molecular testing options rely on a panel of only a handful of known oncogenic drivers. Here we demonstrate a targeted approach at uncovering clinically relevant variants in cancer-associated genes using genomic sequencing. Our patient underwent targeted sequencing of 212 cancer-associated genes, revealing mutations in six; two of which wer...

CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of pseudomeningocele and CSF leak was higher with Tisseel compared with Hemopatch with a statistic significant relation in case of CSF fistulae. The procedure done may be a confusion factor in our study. There was no report of adverse effects or a higher incidence of complications. However, it is recommended to plan randomized trials with larger samples to get stronger evidence. PMID: 33091461 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Neuro-Chirurgie)

CONCLUSIONS: Across sociodemographic strata, healthcare inequalities were identified with regards to spinal meningiomas. For benign spinal meningiomas, incidence was greatest for patients who were female, 65-84 years old, middle/high income, living in rural communities, White, and Asian/Pacific Islander. Meanwhile, for malignant spinal meningiomas incidence was greatest for males, those 45-65 years old, and middle/high income.

Intramedullary pneumorrhachis following a cervical epidural steroid injection.
Abstract Pneumorrhachis (PR) is a rare radiological condition characterized by the presence of intraspinal air. PR is commonly classified as spontaneous (nontraumatic), traumatic, or iatrogenic, and iatrogenic PR is the most common and often occurs secondary to invasive procedures such as epidural anesthesia, lumbar puncture, or spinal surgery. PR is usually asymptomatic, but it can produce symptoms associated with its underlying pathology. Here, we report a rare case of intramedullary cervical PR following a cervical epidural steroid injection (ESI) and include pertinent discussion. PMID: 33049286 [PubMed - ...

Arteriovenous malformation drained into a developmental venous anomaly: a case report and up-dated literature review.
CONCLUSION: The co-occurrence of a DVA and an AVM is rare but has a higher bleeding risk than AVM alone (69% vs 38%) and must consequently be suspected when a DVA is revealed by a haemorrhage, in the absence of associated cavernoma. These mixed malformations represent a therapeutic challenge which has to be tailored to the venous anatomy and to the malformation Spetzler-Martin grade. DVA permeability should be preserved to avoid deleterious venous infarction. PMID: 33049289 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Neuro-Chirurgie)

Diagnosis can be difficult when presentation mimics intracerebral SAH. We advocate early surgical removal. The risk of rapidly fatal course in case of major hemorrhage needs to be borne in mind.

The relevance of the artery of Adamkiewicz for microsurgical resection of spinal tumors- short overview and case series: technical note.
CONCLUSION: For spinal tumor where the AKA is exactly on the same level and side, an intracapsular decompression can be safely performed, with an immediate decrease of the symptomatic mass effect, while decreasing the risk of neurological injury. A second valuable alternative in such situations can also be radiosurgery, for small to medium size tumors. In our experience, this proved safe and effective both for tumor and eventual pain control.
