Economic Comparison Between Endovascular Coiling vs Neurosurgical Clipping for Ruptured and Unruptured Intracranial Aneurysms in Austria.

Neurosurgery 2019 May;84(5):E272-E273

Introduction: Subarachnoid hemorrhage from a ruptured intracranial aneurysm poses a significant health hazard due to its high rates of mortality and disability. The 2 most commonly used treatment modalities of intracranial aneurysms are neurosurgical clipping and endovascular coiling. Through the decision on which treatment option should be chosen in every case is made based on medical indication, nevertheless, due to high socioeconomic burden of subarachnoid hemorrhage, it is also important to compare the healthcare expenditures, caused by clipping and coiling.

Authors:
Vittorio Stumpo

Neurosurgery 2019 May;84(5):E274

Introduction: Recent years have witnessed the birth in the United States of Neurosurgery Medical Students Chapters aimed at fostering the interest toward neurosurgery and at supporting students willing to pursue a career in academic neurosurgery by making available research and mentoring opportunities. The American Association of Neurological Surgeons has pioneered the support of these programs and medical chapters are currently active in most US medical schools where they receive support from local Neurosurgery Departments and Research Centers. On the contrary, the European network of medical students' neurosurgical interest groups is fragmented and this opportunity is largely unexploited. Read More

Producing Neurospheroids and Hydrogels to Create a Three-dimensional in Vitro Model for the Use of Conduits in Peripheral Nerve Regeneration.

Neurosurgery 2019 May;84(5):E272

Introduction: Peripheral nerve regeneration is a complex challenge that requires suitable nerve guidance systems to bridge the severed ends of 2 nerves back together. Current polymeric conduits on the market provide good cellular growth but are limited by the length of gap defect they can repair, and complete functional recovery is rare. This project focused on creating a three-dimensional (3D) in Vitro spheroidal sprouting assay for peripheral nerve regeneration, as well as producing and testing different polymeric hydrogels as potential scaffold materials for the conduit.

The Emerging Role of Biomarkers in Adaptive Modulation of Clinical Brain Stimulation.

Neurosurgery 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Departments of Neurosurgery, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina.

Therapeutic brain stimulation has proven efficacious for treatment of nervous system diseases, exerting widespread influence via disease-specific neural networks. Activation or suppression of neural networks could theoretically be assessed by either clinical symptom modification (ie, tremor, rigidity, seizures) or development of specific biomarkers linked to treatment of symptomatic disease states. For example, biomarkers indicative of disease state could aid improved intraoperative localization of electrode position, optimize device efficacy or efficiency through dynamic control, and eventually serve to guide automatic adjustment of stimulation settings.

A New Piece of the Puzzle to Understand Cervical Sagittal Alignment: Utilizing a Novel Angle δ to Describe the Relationship among T1 Vertebral Body Slope, Cervical Lordosis, and Cervical Sagittal Alignment.

Neurosurgery 2019 Mar 29. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

Department of Neurological Surgery, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Cervical alignment has become increasingly important in the planning of spine surgery. A relationship between the slope of T1 (T1S), the cervical lordosis (CL), and the overall cervical sagittal vertical axis (cSVA) has previously been demonstrated, but the exact nature of this relationship is poorly understood. In this study, we derive theoretical and empirical equations to better understand how T1S and CL affect cSVA. Read More
