Application of the subdural evacuating port system for the drainage of postoperative tension pneumocephalus: A technical note
CONCLUSION: The SEPS™, well-known for evacuation of CSDH, can be potentially used as a bed-side tool to effectively treat mass effect created by tension pneumocephalus. As a readily-available and commercially used device, it can provide a simple and standard toolkit suitable for an emergent temporizing procedure.PMID:35673650 | PMC:PMC9168390 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_120_2022 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

Minimally invasive nummular approach to a giant meningioma of the anterior fossa
CONCLUSION: Giant meningiomas of the anterior fossa are a different entity. When they reach the cortical surface, the surgical approach can be different from the common skull base meningiomas. We demonstrate that a MI transcortical approach can be a safe alternative for giant meningiomas, especially for high-risk patients, as the elderly ones.PMID:35673653 | PMC:PMC9168338 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_1246_2021 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

Drug resistant epilepsy of the insular lobe: A review and update article
CONCLUSION: At present, the main interests and efforts are in the attempt to achieve and standardize the adequate management of the patient with refractory epilepsy of the insular lobe and for that purpose several forms of investigation and treatment were developed. In this paper, we will discuss the characteristics and information regarding the pathology and gather data to identify and choose the best therapeutic option for each case.PMID:35673654 | PMC:PMC9168288 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_58_2022 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

Original technique of sealing cerebrospinal fluid leakage from dural sac causing spontaneous cerebral hypotension
CONCLUSION: Patients with suspected SIH should remain in the supine position until a definitive diagnosis is made. Sealing the meningeal fistula with venous blood under computed tomography guidance should be considered in case of conservative treatment failure.PMID:35673655 | PMC:PMC9168387 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_360_2022 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

The dural vascular plexus in subdural hematoma: Illustration through a case of dural arteriovenous fistula
CONCLUSION: In common cSDH, pressure in the DVP may be normal and subdural bleeding may occur due to mechanical traction on the DVP. In the setting of dAVF, it may be the increase in pressure due to the fistula, within the DVP, that causes subdural hematoma. The DVP, supplied by meningeal arteries, thus not only allows for convergent pathophysiological explanation of subdural bleeding in both cSDH and dAVF but may also be the actual target of the emergent endovascular treatment of cSDH trough meningeal artery embolization.PMID:35673656 | PMC:PMC9168310 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_333_2022 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

Successful use of an LVIS device to treat unruptured distal aneurysm of the superior cerebellar artery at a vascular bifurcation
CONCLUSION: Twelve cases of the use of FDs to treat aneurysms of the SCA have been reported previously. However, none of those reports described FD use to treat an aneurysm at a vascular bifurcation, as in the present case. Our results suggested that LVIS placement with the aim of obtaining flow diversion may be useful for the treatment of aneurysms at such sites.PMID:35673657 | PMC:PMC9168393 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_201_2022 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

Immunoglobulin G4-related disease presenting as an intracranial mass extended from the infratemporal fossa
CONCLUSION: When it comes to intracranial mass, IgG4-RD neuropathy is one of the rarest differential diagnoses for the central nervous system tumors. Early recognition of IgG4-RD and appropriate establishment of its long-term treatment may avoid unnecessary investigations and morbidity.PMID:35673662 | PMC:PMC9168305 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_149_2022 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)
