Introduction: Resections of cutaneous tumors in the medial orbitonasal region can be transfixing. Repairs using a single local flap run the risk of failure and that of secondary sinonasal fistula, especially in cases of surgery on a radiated field. We propose an original and reliable repair procedure using two pedicled regional flaps vascularized by two distinct arterial systems clinched together to reconstruct the mucosal and cutaneous planes.

OBJECTIVEThe quality of surgical treatment of intracranial aneurysms is determined by complete aneurysm occlusion while preserving blood flow in the parent, branching, and perforating arteries. For a few years, there has been a nearly noninvasive and cost-effective technique for intraoperative flow evaluation: microscope-integrated indocyanine green videoangiography (mICG-VA). This method allows for real-time information about blood flow in the aneurysm and the involved vessels, but its limitations are seen in the evaluation of structures located in the depth of the surgical field, especially through small craniotomies.

Perforating Artery Infarcts (PAIs) can be divided into two subtypes based on their etiologies: branch Atheromatous Disease (BAD) and Lacunar Infarct (LI). Recent studies have shown that while both subtypes can be caused by large artery lesions, the different mechanisms that underlie their development are not clear. This study was designed to use High-Resolution Magnetic Resonance Imaging (HRMRI) to explore the differences that contribute to the occurrence of these two subtypes in large artery lesions in the anterior circulation.

Cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD) is a broad category of cerebrovascular diseases which primarily affect the perforating arterioles, capillaries and venules with multiple distinct etiologies. In spite of distinctive pathogenesis, CSVD shares similar neuroimaging markers, including recent small subcortical infarct, lacune of presumed vascular origin, white matter hyperintensity of presumed vascular origin, perivascular space and cerebral microbleeds. The radiological features of neuroimaging markers are indicative for etiological analysis. Read More
