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)

Myeloid sarcoma of the skull base: A case report and systematic literature review
CONCLUSION: Skull base MS is a rare disease entity with a high prevalence of visual dysfunction. Our patient's complete disappearance of intracranial disease and resolution of visual symptoms with systemic and intrathecal chemotherapy highlight the importance of timely diagnosis and appropriate treatment without a need for direct surgical decompression.PMID:35673665 | PMC:PMC9168333 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_255_2022 (Source: Surgical Neurology International)

Middle meningeal artery embolization before craniotomy for infected organizing chronic subdural hematoma: A case report and review of the literature
CONCLUSION: Craniotomy is effective for the treatment of infected OSDH, and MMA embolization is useful to reduce the risk of bleeding complications in the perioperative period, and may also reduce the recurrence of CSDH.PMID:35673666 | PMC:PMC9168304 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_73_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)
