Intraparenchymal subependymoma: Case report and literature review
CONCLUSION: Intraparenchymal subependymoma is extremely rare tumors and literature review showed only 11 cases reported. In general, they are misdiagnosed as other tumors, so careful attention on clinical and radiological features must be taken when looking at a tumor close to the ventricular system, even though it does not have any obvious direct connection to it. Despite its benign nature, total removal must be attempted given that there are reports of recurrence, especially in partially removed tumors with high proliferation index. The role of adjuvant therapy is still limited and new treatment options are being develop...

Intracranial arachnoid cysts in an infant: A technical note on the innovative use of navigation and flexible endoscopy for cyst fenestration
CONCLUSION: Symptomatic ACs in the infant population that require treatment can be addressed with open surgery to fenestrate the cyst, endoscopic cyst fenestration, or cystoperitoneal shunting. Typically, surgeons must choose between a rigid endoscope which allows stereotactic navigation or a flexible endoscope which allows multiple trajectories but precludes navigation. Our case demonstrates that combining stereotactic ventricular placement before flexible endoscopy provides the benefit of both approaches and allows for successful endoscopic treatment in a young patient with durable results.PMID:33948330 | PMC:PMC8088492 ...

Coil embolization of subarachnoid hemorrhage with ruptured persistent primitive olfactory artery aneurysm
CONCLUSION: Most aneurysms of the PPOA are formed at the hairpin turn, as observed in our patient; therefore, a hemodynamic mechanism may be involved in the etiology. To the best of our knowledge, there is no report on treatment using intra-aneurysmal coil embolization, indicating that ours was the first case. As the long-term outcome of intra-aneurysmal coil embolization for PPOA aneurysm is unknown, careful follow-up will be necessary in the future.PMID:33948317 | PMC:PMC8088532 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_202_2021 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)
