Selection of surgical approach for cerebellar hemangioblastomas based on venous drainage patterns.

Neurosurg Rev 2021 Apr 20. Epub 2021 Apr 20.

Department of Neurosurgery, Faculty of Medicine, University of Miyazaki, 5200 Kihara, Kiyotake-cho, Miyazaki, 889-1692, Japan.

Cerebellar hemangioblastomas remain surgically challenging because of the narrow, deep surgical corridors and tumor hypervascularity. Various surgical approaches are used according to the location, but optimal approaches have not been established. We propose a system of surgical approaches based on the venous drainage systems to facilitate surgical planning and achieve acceptable neurological outcomes. Read More

Br J Neurosurg 2021 Apr 20:1-5. Epub 2021 Apr 20.

Department of Neurosurgery, Borgo Trento Hospital, AOUI Verona, Verona, Italy.

Hemangioblastoma is a rare benign vascular tumour of the central nervous system that occurs either sporadically or in association with Von Hippel-Lindau syndrome. Hemangioblastoma can be found throughout the central nervous system and usually present with late manifestations due to their slow growth rate. Cauda equina hemangioblastomas are extremely rare, and in the literature, no cases are reported on the surgical management of pregnant patients with this condition. Read More

Pregnancy Promotes the Recurrence of Cerebellar Hemangioblastoma?

J Craniofac Surg 2021 Apr 15. Epub 2021 Apr 15.

Department of Neurosurgery of Wuhan Third Hospital Department of Surgery and Anesthesia, Taikang Tongji (Wuhan) Hospital, Wuhan Department of Neurosurgery of Shenzhen People's Hospital, Shenzhen, China.

Abstract: Cerebellar hemangioblastomas with pregnancy is rare, but coexistence of pregnancy and recurrent cerebellar hemangioblastomas is rather rare. And coexistence of other diseases during pregnancy usually leads to misdiagnosis because of pregnancy reaction. A 29-year-old woman, at the 8th week of pregnancy, complained of nausea, vomiting, and episodic posterior occipital pain and was misdiagnosed pregnancy reaction without any special treatment during her several visits to local hospital.

Current concepts on ocular vascular abnormalities in the phakomatoses.

Semin Ophthalmol 2021 Mar 23:1-12. Epub 2021 Mar 23.

NESMOS Department, Ophthalmology Unit, St. Andrea Hospital, University of Rome La Sapienza, Rome, Italy.

Background: Neurofibromatosis, Von Hippel Lindau disease, and tuberous sclerosis complex are classified under the term phakomatoses. They are characterized by ocular vascular abnormalities such as vascular tortuosity, corkscrew retinal vessel configuration, moyamoya-like aspect, microaneurysms, hemangioblastomas, and focal sheathing of retinal arteries, possibly due to abnormal formation, migration, and differentiation of neural crest cells. These alterations can be the first sign or the hallmark of disease and can be related to vasoproliferative tumors. Read More
