Implications and limitations of magnetic resonance perfusion imaging with 1.5-Tesla pulsed arterial spin labeling in detecting ictal hyperperfusion during non-convulsive status epileptics
CONCLUSION: The detection of ictal hyperperfusion on 1.5-T PASL might depend on the electrophysiological intensity of the epileptic ictus, which seemed to be more prominent on 1.5-T PASL than on 3-T pCASL. The 1.5-T PASL with dual PLDs showed the hemodynamics of ictal hyperperfusion in patients with RID and LPD. However, it may not be visualized in patients with extremely low amplitude RID or RDA (frequencies <2.5 Hz).PMID:35509552 | PMC:PMC9062968 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_841_2021 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

Dysphagia after occipital cervical fusion for retro-odontoid pseudotumor with ossification of the anterior longitudinal ligament
CONCLUSION: We report a rare case of retro-odontoid pseudotumor successfully treated with a posterior C0-C2 cervical fusion. Additional symptomatic C3-C6 OALL, responsible for progressive dysphagia, was later managed with focal anterior OALL resection.PMID:35509553 | PMC:PMC9063022 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_286_2022 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

Preoperative lymphocyte percentage and neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio are useful predictors of 30-day postoperative complications after lumbar fusion
CONCLUSION: Patients with a preoperative lymphocyte percentage of ≤29.5% and/or NLR ≥2.32 should be closely monitored as high-risk groups susceptible to 30-day postoperative complications after lumbar fusion.PMID:35509554 | PMC:PMC9062943 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_160_2022 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

Cervical carotid occlusion in acute ischemic stroke: Should we give tPA?
CONCLUSION: Emergent revascularization with acute cICA stenting carries advantages, but its safety is precluded by tPA administration. We suggest a trial which randomizes patients with cICA occlusions to receiving either tPA or dual antiplatelet therapy before surgical intervention, aiming to ultimately improved outcomes in these patients.PMID:35509556 | PMC:PMC9063023 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_176_2022 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

Memory and executive functioning outcomes of selective amygdalohippocampectomy in patients with hippocampal sclerosis: A preliminary study in a developing country
CONCLUSION: In our center, executive functioning improved or remained stable after SA, but memory functions declined moderately. The left-sided SA and higher education were associated with more severe decline in memory functions, highlighting the need for special considerations for these groups.PMID:35509560 | PMC:PMC9062935 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_49_2022 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

Blast-related traumatic brain injury: Report of a severe case and review of the literature
CONCLUSION: While numerous studies examined the burden of blast-related brain injuries on service members, few papers have tackled this problem in a civilian setting, where hospitals are not sufficiently equipped, and physicians lack the necessary training. The present case demonstrates the urgent need for evidence-based diagnostic and therapeutic protocols in civilian hospitals that would improve the outcome of such patients.PMID:35509563 | PMC:PMC9062926 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_1134_2021 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)
