The posterior parietal cortex processes visuo-spatial and extra-retinal information for saccadic remapping: A case study.

Cortex 2021 Mar 19;139:134-151. Epub 2021 Mar 19.

IMPACT Team, Lyon Neuroscience Research Center, INSERM, U1028, CNRS, UMR5292, University of Lyon, Bron Cedex, France. Electronic address:

Optimally collecting information and controlling behaviour require that we constantly scan our visual environment through eye movements. How the dynamic interaction between short-lived retinal images and extra-retinal signals of eye motion results in our subjective experience of visual stability remains a major issue in Cognitive Neuroscience. The present study aimed to assess and determine the nature of the contribution of the posterior parietal cortex (PPC) to the saccadic remapping mechanisms which contribute to such perceptual visual constancy.

Novel Graft Technique for Lumbopelvic Reconstruction After Sacral Tumor Resection: A Case Report.

Authors:
Robert F McLain

JBJS Case Connect 2021 Apr 16;11(2). Epub 2021 Apr 16.

Spine and Orthopaedic Institute, St Vincent Charity Medical Center, Adjunct, Biomedical Engineering, Cleveland State University.

Case: Reconstruction after sacral tumor resection carries a high risk of nonunion and requires a slow return to weight-bearing. A bilateral iliac-crest graft, mobilized on a muscular pedicle, was used to graft and fuse the spine and pelvis after resection of a massive sacral schwannoma. Long-term follow-up and three-dimensional computed tomography imaging demonstrate rapid incorporation and solid fusion, with hypertrophy of the graft struts and excellent return to function.
