5-ALA fluorescence-guided surgery in pediatric brain tumors-a systematic review.

Acta Neurochir (Wien) 2019 Apr 13. Epub 2019 Apr 13.

Department of Neurosurgery, University Hospital Münster, Germany Albert-Schweitzer-Campus 1, Building A1, 48149, Munster, Germany.

Background: 5-Aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA)-guided resection of gliomas in adults enables better differentiation between tumor and normal brain tissue, allowing a higher degree of resection, and improves patient outcomes. In recent years, several reports have emerged regarding the use of 5-ALA in other brain tumor entities, including pediatric brains tumors. Since gross total resection (GTR) of many brain tumors in children is crucial and the role of 5-ALA-guided resection of these tumors is not clear, we sought to perform a comprehensive literature review on this topic.

Functional and patient-reported outcome versus in-hospital costs after traumatic acute subdural hematoma (t-ASDH): a neurosurgical paradox?

Acta Neurochir (Wien) 2019 Mar 28. Epub 2019 Mar 28.

Department of Neurosurgery, University Neurosurgical Center Holland (UNCH), Leiden University Medical Center & Haaglanden Medical Center & Haga Teaching Hospital, Leiden/The Hague, The Netherlands.

Background: The decision whether to operate or not in patients with a traumatic acute subdural hematoma (t-ASDH) can, in many cases, be a neurosurgical dilemma. There is a general conception that operating on severe cases leads to the survival of severely disabled patients and is associated with relatively high medical costs. There is however little information on the quality of life of patients after operation for t-ASDH, let alone on the cost-effectiveness. Read More

Cerebral metastases: do size, peritumoral edema, or multiplicity predict infiltration into brain parenchyma?

Acta Neurochir (Wien) 2019 Mar 15. Epub 2019 Mar 15.

Department of Neurosurgery, Medical Center, Georg August University of Göttingen, Göttingen, Germany.

Background: Brain metastases (BMs) are the most frequent malignancy of the central nervous system. Previous research suggested that some metastases show infiltrative behavior rather than sharp demarcation. We hypothesized that three magnetic resonance (MR) imaging parameters-(a) tumor size, (b) extent of peritumoral edema, and (c) presence of multiple BMs-are predictors of cellular invasion beyond the surgically identifiable tumor margins.

Differences in neurosurgical treatment of intracerebral haemorrhage: a nation-wide observational study of 578 consecutive patients.

Acta Neurochir (Wien) 2019 Mar 15. Epub 2019 Mar 15.

Department of Neuroscience, Neurosurgery, Uppsala University, Uppsala University Hospital, SE-751 85, Uppsala, Sweden.

Background: Supratentorial intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) carries an excessive mortality and morbidity. Although surgical ICH treatment can be life-saving, the indications for surgery in larger cohorts of ICH patients are controversial and not well defined. We hypothesised that surgical indications vary substantially among neurosurgical centres in Sweden. Read More

Combined supra-infrasellar approach to pituitary macroadenoma with oculomotor cistern extension: surgical strategy and experience.

Acta Neurochir (Wien) 2019 Mar 12. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

Department of Neurosurgery, Gunma University Graduate School of Medicine, 3-39-22 Showa-machi, Maebashi, Gunma, 371-8511, Japan.

Background: Oculomotor cistern extension (OMCE) of pituitary adenoma through the oculomotor triangle may be one of the major characteristics of multi-lobulated adenoma. The OMCE may be hard to remove only through the endonasal approach.

Method: We applied the simultaneous combined supra-infrasellar approach to remove pituitary adenoma with relatively large OMCE. Read More

Outcome after surgery in supratentorial and infratentorial solitary brain metastasis.

Acta Neurochir (Wien) 2019 Mar 12. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

Department of Neurosurgery, University Hospital KU Leuven, Herestraat 49, B-3000, Leuven, Belgium.

Background: The aim of this retrospective study was to investigate and compare the outcome after surgery in patients with a supratentorial solitary metastasis (SSM) and an infratentorial solitary metastasis (ISM). A worse prognosis has been reported in ISM.

Methods: Fifty-two patients with a newly diagnosed solitary brain metastasis on MRI were included to identify risk factors affecting the outcome. Read More

Posterior fossa meningiomas: perioperative predictors of extent of resection, overall survival and progression-free survival.

Acta Neurochir (Wien) 2019 Mar 11. Epub 2019 Mar 11.

Department of Clinical Neurosciences, Division of Neurosurgery, Geneva University Hospitals, 1205, Genève, Switzerland.

Background: Posterior fossa meningiomas (PFMs) often represent surgical challenges due to their proximity to neurovascular structures. Factors predicting the extent of resection (EOR), overall survival (OS), and progression-free survival (PFS) were identified and integrated in a prediction tool to offer evidence-based personalized therapeutic strategies.

Methods: All meningiomas managed surgically from 1990 to 2010 from a single-center were reviewed. Read More

Screening spreading depolarizations during epilepsy surgery.

Acta Neurochir (Wien) 2019 Mar 9. Epub 2019 Mar 9.

Clinical Neurophysiology Department, National Institute of Neurology and Neurosurgery of Mexico, Av. Insurgentes Sur 3877, Col. La Fama, Tlalpan, 14269, Mexico City, Mexico.

Background: Spreading depolarization (SD) is a fundamental pathophysiological mechanism of both pannecrotic and selective neuronal lesions following deprivation of energy. SD with brain injury has been reported including in one patient during an intracranial operation. However, the incidence of SDs in operative resections is unknown. Read More

Best zero level for external ICP transducer.

Acta Neurochir (Wien) 2019 Apr 8;161(4):635-642. Epub 2019 Mar 8.

Department of Clinical Sciences, Neurosurgery, Skane University Hospital, Lund, Sweden.

Background: Continuous monitoring of intracranial pressure (ICP) was introduced in the 1950s. For correct ICP recordings, the zero-reference point for the external pressure gauge must be placed next to a head anatomical structure. We evaluated different anatomical points as zero reference for the ICP device at different head positions and their relation to brain centre (BC), foramen of Monro (Monro), and brain surface.

Middle cluneal nerve entrapment mimics sacroiliac joint pain.

Acta Neurochir (Wien) 2019 Apr 4;161(4):657-661. Epub 2019 Mar 4.

Department of Neurosurgery, Kushiro Rosai Hospital, 13-23, Nakazono-cho, Kushiro, Hokkaido, Japan.

Background: Sacroiliac joint (SIJ)-related pain is associated with low back- and buttock pain and the SIJ score is diagnostically useful because it helps to differentiate between SIJ-related pain and pain due to other factors such as lumbar disc herniation and lumbar spinal canal stenosis. Middle cluneal nerve (MCN) entrapment (MCN-E) can produce pain involving the lower back and buttocks. Therefore, the origin of the pain must be identified. Read More

Transjugular transsigmoid approach for triple dumbbell-shaped jugular foramen schwannomas.

Acta Neurochir (Wien) 2019 Apr 4;161(4):739-743. Epub 2019 Mar 4.

Department of Neurosurgery, Tokyo Medical University, 6-7-1 Nishi-shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, 160-0023, Japan.

Background: Jugular foramen tumors, particularly those that are triple dumbbell-shaped with intracranial, intraforaminal, and extracranial extensions, are difficult to access surgically. However, advances in neuroimaging, neuromonitoring, and skull base surgery have enabled their safe resection with lower rates of morbidity and mortality.

Method: We share our experience with the surgical technique for the management of triple dumbbell-shaped jugular foramen schwannomas. Read More
