Acquired Chiari malformation Type I and holocord syringomyelia associated with a high-flow supratentorial fistulous arteriovenous malformations: A case report and literature review
CONCLUSION: Increased cerebral venous hypertension secondary to a high-flow supratentorial AVM leading to posterior fossa venous hypertension may play a major role in the pathogenesis of CMI, induced the formation of syringomyelia. Endovascular treatment of brain AVM, the underlying cause of CMI, resulted in a significant reduction of the size of the syrinx. The need for cranial imaging in initial evaluation of cases with adult Chiari malformation is important.PMID:35673663 | PMC:PMC9168309 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_11_2022 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

Postoperative loss of correction after combined posterior and anterior spinal fusion surgeries in a lumbar burst fracture patient with Class II obesity
CONCLUSION: In this patient, an intense axial load due to excessive body weight was at least one of the causes of postoperative correction loss. Postural differences in LKA may be useful to evaluate the stability of thoracolumbar fractures after fusion surgery and to predict postoperative correction loss.PMID:35673667 | PMC:PMC9168345 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_138_2022 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

Endovascular management of iatrogenic vertebro-vertebral fistula: Black Swan event in C2 pedicle screw
CONCLUSION: Iatrogenic VVF should immediately be suspected when the implant trajectory goes slightly off track during a C1-2 fixation. Immediate postoperative DSA and MRI are advisable, irrespective of whether the patient is symptomatic. These lesions are best managed with endovascular coiling with or without detachable balloons.PMID:35673671 | PMC:PMC9168301 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_261_2022 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)
