Experience with resorbable sonic pins for the attachment of distraction devices in posterior cranial vault distraction operations.

Childs Nerv Syst 2019 May 8;35(5):851-856. Epub 2019 Mar 8.

Medical Research Center, Oulu University Hospital, Oulu, Finland.

Background: Distraction techniques are effective methods for the treatment of craniosynostoses when a significant gain of an intracranial volume is required. However, this technique raises some challenges at different stages of the treatment. While installing the distractors in patients with thin calvarial bone, there is a risk of dural damage from the titanium screws. Read More

Why do metopic sutural synostoses angulate? The concept of nasion sutural complex and its implication on the management of hypotelorism-early results and proof of concept.

Childs Nerv Syst 2019 Mar 7. Epub 2019 Mar 7.

Division of Craniomaxillofacial surgery, Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Centre, Cochin, Kerala, India.

Object: Angulation at the suture is a hallmark of metopic synostoses amongst all craniosynostoses. No other sutural synostoses demonstrate angulation at synostoses consistently. We look into the possible aetiology and the implication of the understanding in the treatment goals of trigonocephaly. Read More

Multimodel MRI features of an intracranial juvenile Xanthogranuloma.

Childs Nerv Syst 2019 May 28;35(5):871-874. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Department of Radiology, West China Hospital of Sichuan University, #37 GuoXue Xiang, Chengdu, 610041, Sichuan, China.

Juvenile xanthogranuloma (JXG) is a benign, self-limiting histiocytic disorder of infancy and early childhood, usually presented as a single or multiple cutaneous lesions. The central nervous system is rarely affected by JXG. There were only a few reports of intracranial JXG cases which described its features on MR spectroscopy (MRS) and diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), but its features on susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) and perfusion-weighted imaging (PWI) have not been reported yet.

Panobinostat, a histone deacetylase inhibitor, rescues the angiogenic potential of endothelial colony-forming cells in moyamoya disease.

Childs Nerv Syst 2019 May 27;35(5):823-831. Epub 2019 Feb 27.

Division of Pediatric Neurosurgery, Seoul Pediatric Clinical Neuroscience Center, Seoul National University Children's Hospital, 101 Daehak-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, 110-744, Republic of Korea.

Purpose: Moyamoya disease (MMD) is one of the most common causes of pediatric stroke. We found defective angiogenic function and downregulation of retinaldehyde dehydrogenase 2 (RALDH2) in MMD endothelial colony-forming cells (ECFCs). Downregulation of RALDH2 mRNA was caused by decreased binding of acetyl-histone H3 (Ac-H3) to the RALDH2 promoter. Read More

A case of focal cortical dysplasia type Ib atypically showing reversible intensity changes on magnetic resonance imaging which could be affected by epileptic discharge activity.

Childs Nerv Syst 2019 May 27;35(5):883-887. Epub 2019 Feb 27.

Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, Seirei Hamamatsu General Hospital, 2-12-12 Sumiyoshi, Nakaku, Hamamatsu, Shizuoka, 430-8558, Japan.

Focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) was first described as a distinct neuropathological entity in 1971 by Taylor and colleagues. FCD is thought to be an embryological migration disorder and is thus considered a non-progressive, unchangeable disease throughout life. A 9-year-old right-handed boy was referred from a local hospital for medically intractable epileptic seizures. Read More
