Objective: To investigate the radiographic characteristics of the uppermost instrumented vertebrae (UIV) and UIV+1 compression fractures that are predictive of revision surgery following long-segment spinal fixation.Methods: A total 27 patients who presented newly developed compression fracture at UIV, UIV+1 after long segment spinal fixation (minimum 5 vertebral bodies, lowest instrumented vertebra of L5 or distal) were reviewed retrospectively. Patients were divided into two groups according to following management : revisional surgery (group A, n=13) and conservative care (group B, n=14). Read More

Objective: Epileptic patients with hypothalamic hamartoma (HH) frequently present cognitive impairments. Surgical techniques aiming at HH can be very efficient for epilepsy relief and cognitive improvement but are also demonstrated to carry a significant risk of additional reduction in memory function in these already disabled patients. Gamma knife radiosurgery (GKS) offers an efficient minimally invasive procedure. Read More

Objective: Intracranial aneurysms (IA) in children are rare, accounting for less than 5% of all IA. Due to their scarcity, the epidemiology is poorly understood and differs from adults in term of clinical presentation, size, location, and origin. Consequently, the treatment strategies are specific and cannot be only based on data from adult series. Read More

Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (alloHSCT) is a curative treatment for hematologic malignancies. Acute and chronic graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) are the major immune-mediated complications after alloHSCT. However, there is controversy whether neurologic complications after alloHSCT might represent manifestations of GvHD. Read More
