Parasagittal meningiomas: Our surgical experience and the reconstruction technique of the superior sagittal sinus.
CONCLUSION: Several factors contribute to the success of the parasagittal meningioma surgery. We consider the preservation of the cortical veins to be important, and, when possible, we recommend the reconstruction of the anterior third of the SSS. Our experience has led us to believe that until now surgery is a winning choice if practiced by expert hands. PMID: 28217380 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

Concurrent cervical dural and multiple perimedullary arteriovenous fistulas presenting with subarachnoid hemorrhage: The source of bleeding was invisible at initial angiography.
CONCLUSION: A part of the whole AVFs or the source of bleeding may be invisible in the acute stage just after hemorrhage. Repeated angiography is necessary to diagnose such complex AVFs especially in case of an SAH and treatment should be performed during the subacute stage.

Pipeline embolization device as primary treatment for cervical internal carotid artery pseudoaneurysms.
CONCLUSION: Complete aneurysmal occlusion and long-term angiographic occlusion can occur after PED treatment of cervical carotid pseudoaneurysms. In select patients, the PED can be a suitable primary treatment modality with good neurological outcome for cervical carotid pseudoaneurysms.

Management dilemmas in a rare case of pituitary apoplexy in the setting of dengue hemorrhagic fever.
CONCLUSION: Although patients suffering from DHF harbor multiple factors, which may be precipitants of pituitary apoplexy, the association between these two conditions is rare and only few case reports document their coexistence. We review the pertinent literature and discuss the management dilemmas faced by us while dealing with these dual pathological states.

Decreasing hospital length of stay following lumbar fusion utilizing multidisciplinary committee meetings involving surgeons and other caretakers.
Authors: Shields LB, Clark L, Glassman SD, Shields CB Abstract BACKGROUND: Although hospital length of stay (LOS) following lumbar fusion has decreased for a variety of reasons, different institutions find their LOS over the benchmarks published by the national Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). Over a 3-year period, this prospective study introduced utilization of multidisciplinary committee meetings between surgeons and other caretakers to decrease LOS following spinal fusion surgery without compromising the quality of care. METHODS: A multidisciplinary committee was established to assess fact...

Management of parturients in active labor with Arnold Chiari malformation, tonsillar herniation, and syringomyelia.
CONCLUSION: Unfamiliarity of health care providers with regards to ACM-1 parturients can be countered by increasing awareness of this condition throughout medical specialties involved in their care. The Ghaly Obstetric Guide to Arnold-Chiari malformation Type 1, along with proper training of anesthesia care providers regarding the specificities of ACM-1 parturients aids in better management and understanding of this complex condition.

Bariatric bypasses contribute to loss of bone mineral density but reduce axial back pain in morbidly obese patients considering spine surgery.
CONCLUSIONS: Morbidly obese patients under consideration for "elective" spine surgery may undergo bariatric bypass procedures that lead to a significant reduction of vitamin D levels and loss of bone mineral density. However, potential benefits may include a sufficient reduction of axial back pain to avoid surgery in a select subset of patients altogether.

Rare association of secondary superficial siderosis caused by a fourth ventricle hemorrhagic ependymoma mimicking a cavernoma: Case report and literature review.
CONCLUSION: To our knowledge, including the present case, there are 45 published reports of tumors associating secondary SS. Besides ependymoma, no other hemorrhagic lesion, tumoral or vascular, has been previously published associating a fourth ventricle location with secondary SS. The present case represents the fifth with this finding, and we strongly suggest ependymoma as a presumptive diagnosis when this rare association is encountered. In addition, this appears to be the first case reported in the scientific literature of a hemorrhagic fourth ventricle ependymoma mimicking both, radiologically and histologically, a c...

A5 segment aneurysm of the anterior cerebral artery, imbedded into the body of the corpus callosum: A case report.
CONCLUSION: To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of an aneurysm with this configuration. Our rare case of A5 segment aneurysm demonstrates the importance of planning of the surgery, choosing the appropriate approach, and knowing the detailed anatomy of the region, as well as the necessity of microsurgical clipping of small unruptured AdistAs.

Delayed and isolated oculomotor nerve palsy following minor head trauma.
CONCLUSIONS: Delayed and isolated oculomotor nerve palsy may be caused by an injury at the point where the oculomotor nerve runs over the posterior petroclinoid ligament. Because edema of the damaged oculomotor nerve might result in constriction at the point where the nerve pierces the dura of the cavernous sinus, symptoms of oculomotor nerve palsy appeared late after trauma. Steroid treatment reducing edema could be effective for delayed and isolated oculomotor nerve palsy following minor head trauma.

Metabolic syndrome and the hepatorenal reflex.
Authors: Wider MD Abstract Insufficient hepatic O2 in animal and human studies has been shown to elicit a hepatorenal reflex in response to increased hepatic adenosine, resulting in the stimulation of renal as well as muscle sympathetic nerve activity and activating the renin angiotensin system. Low hepatic ATP, hyperuricemia, and hepatic lipid accumulation reported in metabolic syndrome (MetS) patients may reflect insufficient hepatic O2 delivery, potentially accounting for the sympathetic overdrive associated with MetS. This theoretical concept is supported by experimental results in animals fed a high fructose d...
