OBJECTIVE: Approximately 10 % of patients with chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) undergo reoperation after initial surgery. This study aimed to develop a predictive model for the recurrence of unilateral CSDH at initial surgery without hematoma volumetric analysis. METHODS: This single-center retrospective cohort study evaluated pre- and postoperative computed tomography (CT) images of patients with unilateral CSDH. The pre- and postoperative midline shift (MLS), residual hematoma thickness, and subdural cavity thickness (SCT) were measured...

OBJECTIVE: Regional techniques minimize anesthetic requirements and their effects may be beneficial. There is a lack of consensus and evidence concerning alternative analgesia strategies for cranial neurosurgery. This study was designed to evaluate the effect of scalp block with or without dexmedetomidine combined with general anesthesia on hemodynamic stability, opioid consumption and postoperative pain in patients undergoing elective craniotomy. METHODS: One hundred five patients undergoing elective craniotomy for tumor dissection were randomly divided into three groups to receive scalp block as an adjuvant to general anesthesia: with either 40 ml ropivacaine 0...

Cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome (CHS) is one of the complications of cerebral revascularization. The main pathophysiology of CHS was considered to be cerebral autoregulation impairment due to long-standing cerebral hypoperfusion. Herein, we describe the case of a 40-year-old man with symptomatic intracranial arterial dissection (IAD) related to internal carotid artery stenosis. The patient underwent intracranial stenting 11 days after onset due to severe cerebral hypoperfusion presenting with neurological symptoms, and CHS presenting with intracerebral hemorrhage, post-operatively...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective Cohort Study OBJECTIVE: Myelopathy following ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL) is one of the devastating clinical features in these patients, while we still know little about which factors are associated with development of myelopathy. We evaluated the difference of radiologic measurements between OPLL patients with or without myelopathy and searched for the clinical significance with emphasis on the impact of dynamic motion. METHODS: 305 patients diagnosed of OPLL were enrolled for retrospective review...

BACKGROUND: Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common and lethal primary brain tumor in adults. The treatment options of GBM are quite few and the prognosis of GBM is very dismal. Identifying the effective and prognostic biomarker is important for molecular classification and individual treatment of patients. CDC14 is a conserved dual specificity phosphatase functioning mainly in mitosis and DNA respiration. The expression and function of CDC14 family in tumor progression is still elusive...

BACKGROUND: Migraine, is a common neurological disorder that may be associated with certain personality traits. This study aims to identify and compare the personality traits accompanying the clinical and sociodemographic profiles in migraine groups. METHODS: The study included a cohort of chronic, episodic migraine (CM - EM) and healthy controls (HC). Migraine was diagnosed according to the International Classification of Headache Disorders-3β criteria. Age, gender, migraine-related disease duration, number of days with a headache each month, and headache intensity of the patients were recorded...

INTRODUCTION: Embolization with the intention to cure has not been well studied in ruptured arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). Furthermore, the role of primary curative embolization of pediatric AVMs is uncertain. Hence, we aimed to characterize the safety and efficacy of curative embolization of ruptured pediatric AVMs and assess predictors of obliteration and complications. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of all pediatric (≤18 years) patients who underwent curative embolization of ruptured AVMs was conducted in two institutions between 2010 and 2022...

OBJECTIVE: To observe abnormal tinnitus activity by evaluating the amplitude of low-frequency fluctuation (ALFF) changes in the brain was which detected by resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (rs-fMRI) in patients with intractable tinnitus before and after repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS). We hypothesized that rTMS could progressively revert local brain function back to a relatively normal range. METHODS: This prospective observational research study recruited 25 patients with intractable tinnitus, with 28 healthy controls matched by age, sex, and education level...

OBJECTIVE: Variations of the cavernous Internal Carotid Artery (ICA) angulation (C4-bend) have been classified into 4 anatomical subtypes with particular surgical relevance, as a very angulated ICA comes in closest contact with the pituitary gland leading to higher risk of iatrogenic vascular injury. This study aimed to validate this classification using current routine imaging techniques. METHODS: The different cavernous ICA bending angles were measured on 109 MRI TOF sequences, within a retrospective database of patients with no sellar lesions...

BACKGROUND: Some peripheral blood markers have been demonstrated to be correlated with the re-formation of chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH). The aim of this study was to identify the correlation between nutritional/inflammatory peripheral blood markers and CSDH. METHODS: 188 CSDH patients and 188 age-matched healthy controls were included in this research. The clinical characteristics and peripheral blood markers associated with nutritional or inflammatory status were obtained and analyzed...

We report on two patients with secondary cough headache who responded to the cyclo-oxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitor etoricoxib and showed an independent temporal course. This case report shows that secondary cough headache can also respond to medical treatment and can respond to a COX-2 inhibitor, not previously reported. As is seen in primary cough headache, the headache disorder can go into natural remission (case 1) while the secondary pathology progresses and conversely, persist once the secondary pathology has resolved (case 2)...

BACKGROUND: Delayed neurocognitive recovery (DNR) is commonly seen in patients in the postoperative period. Literature has shown that monitoring cerebral desaturation intraoperatively can predict the development of DNR in elderly patients undergoing surgery in prone position. This prospective observational study was conducted in patients of all ages, with the primary objective to determine the incidence of DNR and its correlation with cerebral oximetry. The secondary objectives were to determine if intraoperative cerebral desaturation influenced the neuropsychometric variables from preoperative to postoperative period...

Intracranial germinomas are most commonly extra-axial germ cell tumors that are predominantly found in the pineal and suprasellar regions. Primary intra-axial midbrain germinomas are extremely rare, with only eight reported cases. Here we present a 30-year-old man who presented with severe neurological deficits, with an MRI that showed a heterogeneously enhancing mass with ill-defined margins in the midbrain, and with surrounding vasogenic edema extending to the thalamus. The presumptive preoperative differential diagnosis included glial tumors and lymphoma...

PURPOSE: idiopathic Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (iNPH) patients have a global reduction of cerebral blood flow (CBF) and Arterial Spin Label (ASL) MRI allows a global evaluation of CBF without the injection of contrast agents. This work aims to assess the qualitative evaluation agreement of ASL CBF colored maps between different neuroradiologists and by correlating these data to the Tap Test. METHODS: Thirty - seven patients with the diagnosis of possible iNPH were consecutively submitted to a diagnostic MRI on a 1...
