Parasagittal meningeal hemangiopericytoma/solitary fibrous tumor: Two case reports and a literature review
CONCLUSION: SFT/M-HPC should be considered when presented with a meningioma-like tumor mass on preoperative imaging. Immunohistochemical study is crucial for the correct diagnosis. Strict long-term follow-up examinations and regular magnetic resonance imaging scans are key to preventing the appearance of metastases and large recurrent masses.PMID:38741978 | PMC:PMC11090575 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_42_2024 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

A comparison of two versus five epineural sutures to achieve successful polyethylene glycol (PEG) nerve fusion in a rat sciatic nerve repair model
CONCLUSION: These findings demonstrate no significant difference in successful PEG fusion between the 2SR and 5SR groups. In addition, the findings demonstrate no statistically significant differences in SNCV or isometric tetanic TAM contractile force following sciatic nerve transection when performing a 2SR or 5SR PN in the setting of PEG fusion. Successful PEG fusion can be achieved acutely with either a two or five-epineural suture repair in a rat model.PMID:38741981 | PMC:PMC11090568 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_901_2023 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

Medically responsive amyloidogenic giant sellar-parasellar prolactinoma
CONCLUSION: Amyloidogenic giant prolactinomas are rare. Contrary to usual belief, even they remain medically responsive; however, more literature is required to decide their ideal management.PMID:38741982 | PMC:PMC11090579 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_150_2024 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

Primary central nervous system lymphoma: A mirror type presentation in an immunocompetent patient
CONCLUSION: In neuro-oncology, primary CNS tumors with multiple lesions are rare, even more, the "mirror type" lesions. Lymphomas are lesions that can present in different ways on imaging and clinical presentation. These tumors that present a vector effect due to their size, perilesional edema, or that lead to loss of neurological function are highly discussed in diagnostic and surgical treatment. Due to their prognosis, action on diagnosis and treatment must be taken as quickly as hospital resources allow.PMID:38741983 | PMC:PMC11090529 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_65_2024 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

Symptomatic lumbar Tarlov cyst resolution after computed tomography-guided percutaneous trans-sacral fibrin glue intracystic injection: A case report and literature review
CONCLUSION: Rarely, patients may present with symptomatic lumbar Tarlov cysts located anterior to the sacrum.

Accurate preoperative diagnosis of a Rathke cleft cyst with the aid of a novel classification for sellar cystic lesions and a diagnostic algorithm decision: Tools for differentiating cystic sellar lesions with a representative case
CONCLUSION: While cystic adenomas can require total resection for cure, RCCs can show marked improvement with partial resection and evacuation of its contents. An accurate preoperative diagnosis can lead the surgeon to opt for the best surgical approach.PMID:38741985 | PMC:PMC11090547 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_59_2024 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

Isolated hypertelorism: Late surgical correction using the box osteotomy technique
CONCLUSION: The article reports two cases of isolated hypertelorism treated late with the box osteotomy technique. Both surgeries were successful, with no postoperative complications.

Comparing equiosmolar hypertonic saline and mannitol for achieving brain relaxation in elective craniotomy patients: A systematic review and meta-analysis
CONCLUSION: HS appears more effective than mannitol in achieving brain relaxation, and it may offer advantages in fluid management and Na+ balance. Clinicians should consider these findings when selecting hyperosmotic agents for neurosurgical procedures. Further research is needed to address heterogeneity in certain outcomes and guide clinical practice.PMID:38741989 | PMC:PMC11090577 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_994_2023 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

Extracranial internal carotid artery-dissecting aneurysm having a re-entry tear and causing lower cranial nerve palsies treated with flow-diverting stent: A case report
CONCLUSION: Herein, an extracranial ICA -DA with a re-entry tear that caused lower cranial nerve palsy did not improve after five weeks of conservative treatment. FDS placement promptly resolved the aneurysm and symptoms. Thus, FDS placement may be an effective treatment option for extracranial ICA-DAs with re-entry tears or lower cranial nerve palsies.PMID:38741991 | PMC:PMC11090541 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_57_2024 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

Resolution of white matter hyperintensity after surgical revascularization in moyamoya disease - A report of three cases
CONCLUSION: Based on radiological findings and the postoperative course of the WMH lesions, the "striated" WMH lesions may represent the inflammation or edema along the neuronal axons due to cerebral ischemia, while the "patchy" WMH lesions may represent vasogenic edema in the white matter through the blood-brain barrier breakdown. Earlier surgical revascularization may resolve these WMH lesions in Moyamoya disease.PMID:38741992 | PMC:PMC11090599 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_173_2024 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)
