Neuroimaging of spine tumors.

Handb Clin Neurol 2016 ;136:689-706

Dent Neurologic Institute, Amherst, NY, USA. Electronic address:

Intramedullary, intradural/extramedullary, and extradural spine tumors comprise a wide range of neoplasms with an even wider range of clinical symptoms and prognostic features. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), commonly used to evaluate the spine in patients presenting with pain, can further characterize lesions that may be encountered on other imaging studies, such as bone scintigraphy or computed tomography (CT). The advantage of the MRI is its multiplane capabilities, superior contrast agent resolution, and flexible protocols that play an important role in assessing tumor location, extent in directing biopsy, in planning proper therapy, and in evaluating therapeutic results.

Intradural-extramedullary haemangioblastoma with paraspinal extension in a dog.

Aust Vet J 2015 Dec 9;93(12):460-5. Epub 2015 Oct 9.

Veterinary University Hospital, School of Veterinary Medicine, Università degli Studi di Milano, Milan, Italy.

Case Report: An 8-year-old spayed female cross-breed dog was evaluated following a 2-month history of thoracic limb weakness. Neurological examination revealed a spinal cord lesion between C1 and C5 segments. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed that almost 70% of the spinal canal between C1 and C2 was occupied by an intradural extramedullary mass that was connected to a paraspinal mass from the cranial aspect of C2 to the cranial aspect of C3.

Discrete or diffuse intramedullary tumor? Contrast-enhanced intraoperative ultrasound in a case of intramedullary cervicothoracic hemangioblastomas mimicking a diffuse infiltrative glioma: technical note and case report.

Neurosurg Focus 2015 Aug;39(2):E17

Department of Neurosurgery, Fondazione IRCCS "Istituto Neurologico C. Besta";

Hemangioblastomas are benign, highly vascularized intramedullary lesions that may also extend into the intradural space. Surgery represents the standard therapy, with the goal of obtaining complete resection even at the risk of neurological morbidity. MRI is the gold standard for diagnosis and assessment of intramedullary tumors. Read More

Single stage transforaminal retrojugular tumor resection: The spinal keyhole for dumbbell tumors in the cervical spine.

Surg Neurol Int 2015 1;6:53. Epub 2015 Apr 1.

Neurosurgical Service, Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Lausanne Hospital, CHUV, Lausanne, Switzerland.

Background: Dumbbell tumors are defined as having an intradural and extradural component with an intermediate component within an expanded neural foramen. Complete resection of these lesions in the subaxial cervical spine is a challenge, and it has been achieved through a combined posterior/anterior or anterolateral approach. This study describes a single stage transforaminal retrojugular (TFR) approach for dumbbell tumors resection in the cervical spine. Read More

Surgical resection of cerebellar hemangioblastoma with enhanced wall thickness: A report of two cases.

Oncol Lett 2015 Apr 10;9(4):1597-1599. Epub 2015 Feb 10.

Department of Spinal Cord and Spine Neurosurgery, Yuquan Hospital, Medical Center, Tsinghua University, Beijing 100049, P.R. China.

Hemangioblastomas are tumors of the central nervous system, and the cerebellum is the most common site of occurrence. Cerebellar hemangioblastoma with enhanced wall thickness is rare and often misdiagnosed preoperatively. At present, no unified radiological classification system based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings exists for cerebellar hemangioblastoma, and this tumor type can be solid or cystic mass, according to the MRI findings.

Visualization of vascular structure of spinal hemangioblastoma using intraoperative indocyanine green videoangiography and temporary feeder occlusion.

Eur Spine J 2015 May 7;24 Suppl 4:S585-9. Epub 2015 Jan 7.

Department of Neurosurgery, Nara Medical University School of Medicine, 840 Shijo-cho, Kashihara, Nara, 634-8521, Japan,

Background And Purpose: To more safely resect pathological lesions during spinal vascular lesion surgery, it is most important to understand local abnormal hemodynamics in detail. New devices or techniques that make out intraoperative local hemodynamics have been awaited. To introduce a resourceful method, we present a case of spinal hemangioblastoma for which temporary arterial occlusion during near-infrared intraoperative indocyanine green (ICG) videoangiography gives useful assessment of the main and minor feeders easily.
