This letter offers a nuanced evaluation of the recent study on single-cell transcriptome analysis of ECM-remodeling meningioma cells. While acknowledging the positive aspects, such as enhanced understanding of tumor heterogeneity and identification of potential therapeutic targets, it also highlights potential limitations, including challenges in data interpretation and validation.The focus on ECM-remodeling may inadvertently overshadow other critical aspects of tumor biology, necessitating a more holistic approach...

This critique evaluates a recent study on a nomogram based on radiomics and clinical data to predict the prognosis of percutaneous balloon compression (PBC) for trigeminal neuralgia (TN), focusing on its strengths, weaknesses, and suggestions for future research. It acknowledges the innovative approach's potential to personalize treatment and improve outcomes, but raises concerns about the study's retrospective nature, sample size limitations, and challenges in implementing radiomics in clinical practice. Overall, although the nomogram offers promise, further validation in larger cohorts is essential to confirm its utility and reliability...

Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are vascular malformations of the central nervous system (CNS) with potential for significant consequences. The exact pathophysiologic mechanism of AVM formation is not fully understood. This study aims to evaluate bibliometric parameters and citations of the literature of AVMs to provide an overview of how the field has evolved. We performed an electronic search on Web of Science to identify the top 100 published and indexed articles with the highest number of citations discussing the pathogenesis of AVMs...

This systematic review aims to summarize the findings from all clinical randomized trials assessing the efficacy of potential neuroprotective agents in influencing the outcomes of acute spinal cord injuries (SCI). Following the PRISMA guidelines, we conducted comprehensive searches in four electronic databases (PubMed, Scopus, Cochrane Library, and Web of Science) up to September 5th, 2023. Our analysis included a total of 30 studies. We examined the effects of 15 substances/drugs: methylprednisolone, tirilazad mesylate, erythropoietin, nimodipine, naloxone, Sygen, Rho protein antagonist, granulocyte colony-stimulating factor, autologous macrophages, autologous bone marrow cells, vitamin D, progesterone, riluzole, minocycline, and blood alcohol concentration...

Burr hole craniotomy is a common technique employed in the treatment of chronic subdural hematoma. However, its effectiveness and the occurrence of additional complications with various irrigation techniques utilized during the surgery remain unclear. The paper aims to compare the effectiveness and safety of burr hole craniotomy with and without irrigation in the treatment of chronic subdural hematoma. We conducted a systematic review by searching PubMed, Cochrane Library, Scopus, Ovid, and Web of Science for comparative studies that fit the eligibility criteria...

Despite great advancements and the diffusion of awake surgery for brain tumors, the literature shows that the tests applied during the procedure are heterogeneous and non-standardized. This prospective, observational, descriptive study collected data on intraoperative brain mapping and the performance of multiple neurocognitive tests in 51 awake surgeries for diffuse low-grade glioma. Frequency of use and rate of intraoperative findings of different neurocognitive tests were analyzed. Patients mean age at the time of surgery was 35...

Parafalcine and parasagittal (PFPS) are common locations for meningiomas. Surgical resection for these tumors, the first-line treatment, poses challenges due to their proximity to critical structures. This systematic review investigates the use of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) as a treatment for PFPS meningiomas, aiming to elucidate its safety and efficacy. The review adhered to PRISMA guidelines. Searches were conducted on MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane. Inclusion criteria involved studies on SRS for PFPS meningiomas, reporting procedure outcomes and complications...

REVIEW
Yash Verma, Arosh S Perera Molligoda Arachchige
Histotripsy, a non-thermal ultrasound technique, holds significant promise in various applications within the realm of brain interventions. While its use for treating brain tumors is somewhat limited, focused ultrasound technology has been extensively investigated for a wide range of purposes within the brain, including disrupting the blood-brain barrier, supporting immunotherapy, addressing conditions like essential tremor, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, epilepsy, and neuropathic pain. Research findings indicate that histotripsy can reduce tumor cells with fewer pulses, minimizing the risk of bleeding and cellular injury...

Low-profile stents may provide significant advantages in Y-stent-assisted coiling due to their miniaturized design and capability to be delivered through a 0.0165-inch microcatheter. We aim to investigate the safety and efficacy of using these newer versions of stents in Y-stent-assisted coiling for the treatment of wide-necked bifurcation aneurysms. We conducted a systematic review of the PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, and Web of Science databases up to September 2023, following the PRISMA guidelines. Eligible studies included  ≥ 5 patients with intracranial wide-necked bifurcation aneurysms treated with Y-stent-assisted coiling using low-profile stents, providing angiographic and clinical outcomes...

LETTER
Syeda Mahrukh Fatima Zaidi, Faizan Ur Rehman, Syeda Dua E Zehra Zaidi
This letter to the editor critiques a recent study evaluating the role of biologically effective dose (BED) in stereotactic radiosurgical thalamotomy for essential tremor (ET). The study, conducted retrospectively on 78 ET patients, demonstrates a significant correlation between BED and tremor improvement post-SRS. Moreover, the study suggests adjusting the prescribed dose rather than changing cobalt-60 sources to maintain treatment efficacy while minimizing toxicity. This suggestion aligns with previous research indicating an annual decrease in BED due to cobalt-60 decay...

BACKGROUND: The objective was to provide comprehensive preoperative information on both the aneurysm orientation and the side and method of surgical approach for optimal preoperative information and safe clipping using 3D imaging modalities. This was achieved by making an objective risk assessment on the surgical side/method and evaluating its effectiveness with internal validation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Radiologic data of 61 ACoA aneurysm patients between 2012 and 2020 were retrospectively analyzed...

PURPOSE: Here, we conducted a meta-analysis to explore the use of intraoperative ultrasound (iUS)-guided resection in patients diagnosed with high-grade glioma (HGG) or glioblastoma (GBM). Our aim was to determine whether iUS improves clinical outcomes compared to conventional neuronavigation (CNN). METHODS: Databases were searched until April 21, 2023 for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and observational cohort studies that compared surgical outcomes for patients with HGG or GBM with the use of either iUS in addition to standard approach or CNN...

REVIEW
G Ibáñez-Botella, I F Narváez, B Pugliese, B Ros, M A Arráez
An important step in the performance of endoscopic resection of colloid cysts of the third ventricle is the forced aspiration of cyst contents. The different consistencies these cysts may have can limit their complete resection and increase the likelihood of complications. The introduction of the ultrasonic neuroendoscopic aspirator allows cysts to be emptied more easily than with a conventional rigid aspirator, improving the feasibility of resection even in more solid cysts. The ability to regulate ultrasound and aspiration increases safety in a reduced and highly morbid space such as the third ventricle...

Meningiomas are the most common tumours that primarily arise in the central nervous system, but their intratumoural heterogeneity has not yet been thoroughly studied. We aimed to investigate the transcriptome characteristics and biological properties of ECM-remodeling meningioma cells. Single-cell RNA sequencing (ScRNA-seq) data from meningioma samples were acquired and used for analyses. We conducted comprehensive bioinformatics analyses, including screening for differentially expressed genes (DEGs), Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) signaling pathway and Gene Ontology (GO) term enrichment analyses, Gene Set Enrichment Analysis (GSEA), protein-protein interaction (PPI) analysis, and copy number variation (CNV) analysis on single-cell sequencing data from meningiomas...
