BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Surgical treatment is an integral component of multimodality management of metastatic spine disease but must be balanced against the risk of surgery-related morbidity and mortality, making tailored surgical counseling a clinical challenge. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential predictive value of the preoperative performance status for surgical outcome in patients with spinal metastases. METHODS: Performance status was determined using the Karnofsky Performance Scale (KPS), and surgical outcome was classified as "favorable" or "unfavorable" based on postoperative changes in neurological function and perioperative complications...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Financial conflicts of interest between editorial board members and industry could lead to biases and impartial editorial decisions. We aimed to evaluate the frequency, amount, and characteristics of payments to editorial board members of neurosurgery journals over a 6-year period. METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, editorial board members were derived from the top 10 neurosurgery journals based on Google Scholar metrics. The Open Payments database by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services was accessed to evaluate industry payments to editorial board members from 2017to 2022...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Rapid detection of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks is vital for patient recovery after spinal surgery. However, distinguishing CSF-specific transferrin (TF) from serum TF using lateral flow immunoassays (LFI) is challenging due to their structural similarities. This study aims to develop a novel point-of-care diagnostic assay for precise CSF leak detection by quantifying total TF in both CSF and serum. METHODS: Capitalizing on the substantial 100-fold difference in TF concentrations between CSF and serum, we designed a diagnostic platform based on the well-known "hook effect" resulting from excessive analyte presence...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The preferred osmotic agent used for brain relaxation during craniotomies remains unclear, either mannitol (MAN) or hypertonic saline (HTS). Hence, we sought to compare these solutions in this population. METHODS: MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane databases were systematically searched until August 02, 2023. Data were examined using the Mantel-Haenszel method and 95% CIs. Heterogeneity was assessed using I2 statistics. Meta-regression analysis was conducted to evaluate a possible link between Brain Relaxation Score and tumor volume...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Arginine vasopressin (AVP) is an important hormone responsible for maintaining sodium homeostasis after pituitary surgery. The measurement of AVP levels is difficult because of its short half-life (t1/2). Copeptin is a preprohormone of AVP, and it is a more stable peptide, which can be used as surrogate marker for AVP. This study aims to assess the role of copeptin as a predictor of postoperative hyponatremia and hypernatremia in patients undergoing endoscopic pituitary adenoma surgery...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Nearly 30% of older adults presenting with isolated spine fractures will die within 1 year. Attempts to ameliorate this alarming statistic are hindered by our inability to identify relevant risk factors. The primary objective of this study was to develop a prediction model that identifies feasible targets to limit 1-year mortality. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study included 703 older adults (65 years or older) admitted to a level I trauma center with isolated spine fractures, without neural deficit, from January 2013 to January 2018...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Microsurgical resection is the only curative intervention for symptomatic brainstem cavernous malformations (BSCMs), but the management of these lesions in older adults (≥65 years) is not well described. This study sought to address this gap by examining the safety and efficacy of BSCM resection in a cohort of older adults. METHODS: Records of patients who underwent BSCM resection over a 30-year period were reviewed retrospectively...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Cervical disk arthroplasty (CDA) offers the advantage of motion preservation in the treatment of focal cervical pathology. At present, implant sizing is performed using subjective tactile feedback and imaging of trial cages. This study aims to construct interpretable machine learning (IML) models to accurately predict postoperative range of motion (ROM) and identify the optimal implant sizes that maximize ROM in patients undergoing CDA. METHODS: Adult patients who underwent CDA for single-level disease from 2012 to 2020 were identified...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Neurosurgeons and hospitals devote tremendous resources to improving recovery from lumbar spine surgery. Current efforts to predict surgical recovery rely on one-time patient report and health record information. However, longitudinal mobile health (mHealth) assessments integrating symptom dynamics from ecological momentary assessment (EMA) and wearable biometric data may capture important influences on recovery. Our objective was to evaluate whether a preoperative mHealth assessment integrating EMA with Fitbit monitoring improved predictions of spine surgery recovery...

Intraoperative MRI (iMRI) made its debut to great fanfare in the mid-1990s. However, the enthusiasm for this technology with seemingly obvious benefits for neurosurgeons has waned. We review the benefits and utility of iMRI across the field of neurosurgery and present an overview of the evidence for iMRI for multiple neurosurgical disciplines: tumor, skull base, vascular, pediatric, functional, and spine. Publications on iMRI have steadily increased since 1996, plateauing with approximately 52 publications per year since 2011...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Posterior fossa ependymomas (PFEs) are rare brain tumors classified as PF-EPN-A (PFA) and PF-EPN-B (PFB) subgroups. The study aimed to evaluate the prognosis and survival outcomes in PFEs, with a focus on the impact of molecular subgroups. METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted on 412 patients with PFEs. Kaplan-Meier survival analyses were conducted to evaluate the overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival. Cox regression analyses were conducted to assess the prognostic factors...

Moderate traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a diagnosis that describes diverse patients with heterogeneity of primary injuries. Defined by a Glasgow Coma Scale between 9 and 12, this category includes patients who may neurologically worsen and require increasing intensive care resources and/or emergency neurosurgery. Despite the unique characteristics of these patients, there have not been specific guidelines published before this effort to support decision-making in these patients. A Delphi consensus group from the Latin American Brain Injury Consortium was established to generate recommendations related to the definition and categorization of moderate TBI...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Intracranial electrophysiology of thalamic nuclei has demonstrated involvement of thalamic areas in the propagation of seizures in focal drug-resistant epilepsy. Recent studies have argued that thalamus stereoencephalography (sEEG) may aid in understanding the epileptogenic zone and treatment options. However, the study of thalamic sEEG-associated hemorrhage incidence has not been investigated in a cohort study design. In this article, we present the largest retrospective cohort study of sEEG patients and compare hemorrhage rates between those with and without thalamic sEEG monitoring...

BACKGROUND: Navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (nTMS) is a well-established preoperative mapping tool for motor-eloquent glioma surgery. Machine learning (ML) and nTMS may improve clinical outcome prediction and histological correlation. METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study of patients who underwent surgery for motor-eloquent gliomas between 2018 and 2022. Ten healthy subjects were included. Preoperative nTMS-derived variables were collected: resting motor threshold (RMT), interhemispheric RMT ratio (iRMTr)-abnormal if above 10%-and cortical excitability score-number of abnormal iRMTrs...
