BACKGROUND: Recent advancements in neurosurgery have transformed patient care through minimally invasive procedures and led to a notable surge in endovascular treatments. However, the regulatory landscape governing these procedures across European countries varies, impacting treatment access and collaboration. This paper discusses the results of a survey on European legislation regarding endovascular neurosurgery, exploring current practices and speculating on the field's future. METHODS: An e-mail survey was distributed to 41 European countries, targeting European member societies within the EANS...

"The history of the world is the biography of the great man. And I said: the great man always acts like a thunder. He storms the skies, while others are waiting to be stormed," said Thomas Carlyle. In this historical vignette, we study the contribution to neuroanatomy, of greats from the past. What led them to find the basis of topography and anatomical localization? How did they unravel the pathways of cerebrospinal fluid and cortical structure of the human brain? To understand this, we study the paths of Pierre Paul Broca, Richard L...

BACKGROUND: Robotic assistance in spine surgery is emerging as an accurate, effective and enabling technology utilized in the treatment of patients with surgical spinal pathology. The safety and reproducibility of robotic assistance in the placement of pedicle screw instrumentation is still being investigated. The objective of this study was to present our experience of instrumented spinal fusion utilizing an intraoperative robotic guidance system. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all cases of spinal instrumentation of the thoracic and lumbo-sacral spine using the Mazor X robotic system (Medtronic Inc, Minneapolis, MN, USA), performed at our institution by one surgeon between July 2017 and June 2020...

BACKGROUND: Although endoscopic techniques have become more widespread in repair of frontal sinus (FS) defects, certain pathologies still require open approach (extensive trauma or tumors). Under certain circumstances even multiple complex open reconstructive procedures might fail to resolve persistent pneumocephalus or CSF leak and subsequently surgeons tend to escalate the invasiveness and employ even more complex and aggressive approaches. We present our experience treating persistent pneumocephalus or CSF leak after previously failed transcranial reconstruction utilizing an endoscopic endonasal approach (EEA)...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this paper was to understand the role of prophylaxis with levetiracetam at skin incision in preventing convulsive intraoperative seizures (IOS) during neurosurgical procedures with and without intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM). METHODS: Authors retrospectively reviewed the Institutional database for cases of supratentorial brain tumors undergoing surgical resection performed from January 2021 to October 2022. Patients were operated on both under general anesthesia and awake, using motor-evoked potentials (MEP) and direct cortical stimulation for cortical mapping...

BACKGROUND: To date, no shared algorithms with the aim of guiding surgical strategy in complex cases of degenerative cervical myelopathy (DCM) exist. Our purpose is to present the Cervical Surgical Score (CSS) which could help in identifying complex DCM cases, suggesting a surgical strategy. METHODS: We created the CSS based on multidisciplinary and literature-focused discussions, based on eight parameters including number of levels of cervical pathology and myelopathy, type and predominance of compression and grade of clinical myelopathy...

"The only history is a mere question of one's struggle inside oneself. But that is the joy of it. One need neither discover Americas nor conquer nations, and yet one has as great a work as Columbus or Alexander to do," said David H. Lawrence. In this historical vignette, we look at the lives of certain western giants of neuroanatomy from the past. To understand the origin of today's advancements and successes in neurosurgery, a strong foothold on the path taken by anatomical greats is necessary. What curiosity inspired them to search the meaning of the human nervous system? Learning this from the paths of Herophilus, Galen, Franciscus Sylvius, Thomas Willis, Alexander Monro secundus, Luigi Rolando, François Magendie, and Martin Rathke, will propel us to create a better future for our successors...

INTRODUCTION: Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is a modern neuromodulation technique extensively proven to be an effective modality for treatment of chronic neuropathic pain. It has been mainly studied for complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS) and recent data almost uniformly establishes its statistically significant positive therapeutic results. It has also been compared with other available treatment modalities across various studies. However, long term data on maintenance of its efficacious potential remains less explored...

BACKGROUND: Pituitary adenomas and craniopharyngiomas are the most common lesions of the sellar region. These tumors are responsible for invasion or compression of crucial neurovascular structures. The involvement of the pituitary stalk warrants high rates of both pre- and post- operative diabetes insipidus. The aim of our study was to assess the accuracy of machine learning analysis from preoperative MRI of pituitary adenomas and craniopharyngiomas for the prediction of DI occurrence...

BACKGROUND: Treatment-related changes still represent a diagnostic challenge in the management of patients with suspect of recurrent glioblastoma. The specificity of conventional MRI in detecting recurrence remains limited. Brain PET imaging provides information on tumor metabolism and can contribute to improving the diagnostic accuracy of cerebral neoplasms. We performed a retrospective analysis to evaluate the clinical value of O-(2-18 F-fluoroethyl)-L-tyrosine (18 F-FET) PET in the diagnosis of glioblastoma recurrence...

INTRODUCTION: Adjacent segment degeneration is among the most recognized long-term complications of lumbar surgery for degenerative spine pathologies with a relevant impact in spine surgical and clinical practice. It is reported a incidence of clinical adjacent segment disease between 5-30% of patients undergoing spinal fusion. We aimed to evaluate the main clinical and surgical risk factors for developing adjacent segment disease. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: A systematic review and meta-analysis of the pertinent literature was performed, according to PRISMA and PICO guidelines, focusing on clinical and radiological adjacent segment disease...
