Preliminary experience in the management of brain and skull-base tumors with microwave ablation; feasibility guided by ultrasound, report from 23 cases.
Conclusion: MWA can be a useful tool as a single therapy or as a complement to conventional techniques for the surgical resection of brain and skull-base tumors. It was a safe method in all cases, producing a decrease in intratumoral blood flow, and this procedure facilitates the microsurgical resection of the lesion.

Remote hemorrhage after burr-hole surgery for chronic subdural hematoma: A report of two cases.
Conclusion: Postoperative remote hemorrhage is a rare complication, and it can occur after both craniotomy surgery and burr-hole surgery. Neurosurgeons should consider the possibility of this rare complication, and sufficient care should be taken to select the most appropriate surgical procedure to prevent remote hemorrhage.

An approach using the occipital parietal point for placement of ventriculoperitoneal catheters in adults.
Conclusions: Shunt malfunctions remain to be a common complication but can be reduced by optimal catheter positioning. The OPP established on computed tomography (CT) is just as safe as conventional landmarks, and can aid in optimal catheter positioning and can potentially reduce the risk of shunt malfunction secondary to suboptimal catheter placement.

Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging may be useful in differentiating fungal abscess from malignant intracranial lesion: Case report.
Conclusions: Correctly identifying an infectious versus tumor etiology is important. Research has been carried out to employ diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) in differentiating the variable radiological findings. The role of DWI in diagnosing bacterial abscess is more commonly seen in comparison to fungal abscess. DWI has a high diagnostic potential, but more works need to be done.

Legal and evidenced-based definitions of standard of care: Implications for code of ethics of professional medical societies.
Conclusions: Recent legal decisions suggest that testimony should be based upon scientific evidence. The scientific evidence indicates that there is often more than one SOC. Thus, any subspecialty society, including the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, that ignores evidence-based medicine and the existence of multiple SOC, risks the appearance of fostering self-interest at the expense of patient care.

Cerebral abscesses after endovascular coiling of a paraophthalmic aneurysm: Case report and review of the literature.
Conclusion: Infection following coil embolization of cerebral aneurysm is rare. However, it is likely to increase in the setting of increased used of neuroendovascular techniques in the future. Therefore, we suggest that extreme care is taken to ensure proper asepsis during embolization, and a high index of suspicion is maintained in patients with predisposing characteristics (large hemorrhage, ischemia, recurrent endovascular procedures, right-to-left shunt, and concomitant infection). Given the fact that the majority of abscesses occurred in patients who have had ruptured aneurysms, we suggest consideration is given to p...

It is characterized by concurrent inflammation and demyelination of the optic nerve (optic neuritis [ON]) and the spinal cord (myelitis). Multiple studies show variations in prevalence, clinical, and demographic features of NMO among different populations. In addition, ethnicity and race are known as important factors on disease phenotype and clinical outcomes. There are little data on information about N...
