Refining the treatment of spinal cord lesions: experience from 500 cases.

Neurosurg Focus 2021 May;50(5):E22

Objective: Tumorous lesions of the spinal cord, as well as some vascular lesions like cavernous hemangiomas, demand careful consideration as to the indication and approach for surgery. As these lesions are rare in any departmental series, refinement of treatment strategies evolves over long periods. In this context, the authors evaluated a series of 500 intramedullary lesions for approach, technique, outcome, complications, and follow-up. Read More

Management of spinal dumbbell tumors via a minimally-invasive posterolateral approach and carbon fiber reinforced PEEK instrumentation: technical note and surgical case series.

World Neurosurg 2021 Apr 26. Epub 2021 Apr 26.

Department of Neurosurgery, University Hospital Münster, Münster, Germany.

Objective: Stand-alone minimally-invasive approaches for surgical management of spinal dumbbell tumors carry the risk of incomplete resections and impaired hemostasis. More extensive approaches require subsequent instrumentation with metal artifacts impairing follow-up imaging. Here, we present a technical note on percutaneous instrumentation using carbon fiber reinforced polyetheretherketone (CFR-PEEK) hardware combined with a minimally-invasive posterolateral approach for tumor resection.

Cutaneous and hepatic vascular lesions due to a recurrent somatic mutation reveal a pathway for vascular malformation.

HGG Adv 2021 Apr 1;2(2). Epub 2021 Mar 1.

Department of Dermatology, School of Medicine, Yale University, New Haven, CT 06510, USA.

The term "cavernous hemangioma" has been used to describe vascular anomalies with histology featuring dilated vascular spaces, vessel walls consisting mainly of fibrous stromal bands lined by a layer of flattened endothelial cells, and an irregular outer rim of interrupted smooth muscle cells. Hepatic hemangiomas (HHs) and cutaneous venous malformations (VMs) share this histologic pattern, and we examined lesions in both tissues to identify genetic drivers. Paired whole-exome sequencing (WES) of lesional tissue and normal liver in HH subjects revealed a recurrent c. Read More

A case of diffuse hepatic hemangiomatosis coexistent with giant hemangioma: case report and literature review.

Radiol Case Rep 2021 Jun 17;16(6):1518-1523. Epub 2021 Apr 17.

Body Imaging, Radiology Department, IBERORAD, Barcelona, Spain.

We report a case of hepatic hemangiomatosis coexistent with a giant hepatic hemangioma diagnosed in the context of the study for SARS-CoV-2 infection. Computed tomography showed irregular contours of the left hepatic lobe with a lesion that compromised the whole lobe, with peripheral uptake and a centripetal tendency in the late phase, compatible with bulky cavernous hemangioma, as well as another lesion with the same characteristics in segment VI. Magnetic resonance imaging of the abdomen showed multiple hepatic hemangiomas observed in both lobes involving all segments, some of them smaller than 1 cm, which were hyperintense in the T2-weighted sequences and showed progressive contrast enhancement.

Intraneural cavernous hemangioma: a rare case of extrafascicular left ulnar nerve tumor.

Am J Blood Res 2021 15;11(1):72-76. Epub 2021 Feb 15.

Department of Orthopedics, School of Medicine, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences Isfahan, Iran.

Hemangiomas are benign soft tissue tumors that may be found everywhere in the human body. As one of the hemangioma types, cavernous hemangioma consists of a flat endothelium along with blood-filled spaces and may be found in the central nervous system, but rarely occurs in peripheral nerves. This article pertains to the introduction of an old female patient complaining of pain and paresthesia of the ulnar side of the left forearm and hypothenar with numbness and tingling of the fourth and fifth digits and clawing.

The Endoscopic Transnasal Approach to Orbital Tumors: A Review.

Semin Ophthalmol 2021 May 31;36(4):232-240. Epub 2021 Mar 31.

Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery Service, Department of Ophthalmology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

Historically, surgical access to orbital tumors has required a transcutaneous, transconjunctival or transcranial approach. Resection of orbital tumors is notoriously challenging due to the surrounding dense network of critical structures in a confined bony cavity. Advances in endoscopic endonasal surgery, initially used for sinonasal and skull base conditions, have allowed for expansion of its applications beyond the sinorbital interface. Read More

Small Intestinal Hemangioma: A Case Report.

Am J Case Rep 2021 Mar 28;22:e929618. Epub 2021 Mar 28.

Department of Internal Medicine, São Paulo State University (Unesp), Medical School, Botucatu, SP, Brazil.

BACKGROUND Hemangiomas are benign vascular neoplasms that originate from fast-growing embryonic mesodermal tissue and have a proliferation of endothelial cells, which manifest themselves in different forms, locations, and dimensions. Owing to its rarity and similarity of symptoms with other chronic bowel diseases, intestinal hemangioma is a differential diagnosis to be considered in patients presenting with symptoms such as abdominal pain and anemia. CASE REPORT A 46-year-old woman with a history of diffuse abdominal pain and abdominal distension for 20 years presented with a worsening of symptoms in the past year. Read More

Ileal cavernous haemangioma in an adult presenting as a rare cause of small bowel obstruction.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Mar 9;14(3). Epub 2021 Mar 9.

Department of Surgical Gastroenterology, Jaslok Hospital and Research Centre, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Haemangiomas of the small bowel are a very rare entity and rarely considered as an aetiology for an intestinal obstruction. Contrast-enhanced CT is the investigation of choice but the lesion can be confused with malignancy or rarely a neuroendocrine tumour. Commonly it presents as abdominal pain with anaemia and/or melaena. Read More

Giant esophageal hemangioma diagnosed by Tc-HSA-D scintigraphy following equivocal CT, MRI, and endoscopy.

Radiol Case Rep 2021 May 24;16(5):1023-1027. Epub 2021 Feb 24.

Department of Gastroenterology, Hepatology, Tokyo Medical University, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, Japan.

Mediastinal cavernous hemangioma is a rare lesion requiring diagnosis without invasive procedure due to the risk of hemorrhage, which can be massive and even fatal. Here we describe the successful diagnosis of such a lesion using technetium-99m diethylenetriamine penta-acetic acid human serum albumin (Tc-HSA-D) scintigraphy. A 36-year-old female with a 3-week back pain underwent endoscopic ultrasonography, contrast-enhanced CT, and MRI dynamic study which together revealed a submucosal tumor of the esophagus; likely to be either hemangioma or lymphangioma.

Impact of F-fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography computed Tomography Imaging in a Case of Pericardial Cavernous Hemangioma.

Indian J Nucl Med 2020 Oct-Dec;35(4):360-361. Epub 2020 Oct 21.

Department of Nuclear Medicine, Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India.

Hemangiomas are extremely rare tumors of the heart that may present with pericardial effusion, dyspnea, chest discomfort, palpitations, or syncope. Few published reports have highlighted the utility of F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (F-FDG PET-CT) in the evaluation of cardiac lesions. We report a case demonstrating the utility of F-FDG PET-CT in a young man who presented with gross pericardial effusion and suspicion of metastatic carcinoma on fluid cytology. Read More

Cavernous Malformation Surgery in the United States: Validation of a Novel International Classification of Disease, 10th Edition, Clinical Modification Code Search Algorithm and Volume-Driven Surgical Outcomes.

World Neurosurg 2021 Feb 25. Epub 2021 Feb 25.

Department of Neurosurgery, Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Penn Medicine, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Electronic address:

Objective: The surgical decision-making process for cavernous malformation (CM) must weigh the risks of surgery against the burden of patient symptoms/hemorrhage and anticipated natural history. Here, we sought to internally validate an International Classification of Disease (ICD)-10 search algorithm for CM surgery to use to analyze a nationwide administrative database.

Methods: Institutional records were accessed to test the validity of a novel ICD-10 search algorithm for CM surgery. Read More
