Interhemispheric transcallosal transforaminal approach for decompression of a giant superior cerebellar artery thrombosed aneurysm: Three-dimensional operative video.
Conclusion: Through an extensive description of the surgical anatomy, we illustrate an interhemispheric transcallosal transforaminal approach, with the removal of anterior thalamic tubercle to widely expose the aneurysm dome. The surgery was successfully performed, and the patient symptoms improved. The patient signed the Institutional Consent Form, which allows the use of her images and videos for any type of medical publications in conferences and/or scientific articles.

Comparison of postoperative cognitive dysfunction with the use of propofol versus desflurane in patients undergoing surgery for clipping of aneurysm after subarachnoid hemorrhage.
Conclusion: A significant number of patients undergoing aneurysmal neck surgery experienced POCD although incidence remained similar in both groups. However, it appears that mean cognitive score and certain domains of cognitive functions especially the executive function, attention, and orientation were better preserved with the use of propofol when compared to desflurane at the time of discharge or on 2 weeks following surgery whichever was early.

Glioblastoma with primitive neuronal component: A case report and considerations of fluorescence-guided surgery.
Conclusion: GB/PNC is extremely rare tumors. Given its low prevalence, there are no studies that refer to the macroscopic characteristics of the tumor as well as evidence of the effectiveness of adjuvant treatment. Fluorescence-guided resection with 5-ALA is the surgical treatment of choice in surgery for high-grade gliomas; however, in GB/PNC, it may not be as useful since PNC may have less fluorescent marker uptake and be more dimly visualized when excited by light using the surgical microscope.

Conclusion: To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of a fulminant presentation of a SMARCB1- deficient tumor in young adult, involving the anterior cranial fossa and the paranasal sinuses. The main differential diagnosis of aggressive, primary, intracranial SMARCB1-deficient tumors in adults includes ATRT, SMARCB1- deficient sinonasal carcinoma, rhabdoid meningioma, and rhabdoid glioblastoma. Atypical tumors involving the anterior skull base without a clear histopathological pattern should therefore be checked for SMARCB1 expression.
