Herein, we describe a case of epidural hematoma associated with the use of a Mayfield head clamp. An 18-year old patient with an upper brainstem tumour causing obstructive hydrocephalus underwent a routine third ventriculostomy, which unexpectedly revealed an intracranial hemorrhage. We outline potential risk factors, propose an algorithm for preventing complications associated with the use of pin-type fixation, and conducted a structured review of the literature to identify similar clinical scenarios.

Although rare, penetrating neck injuries can have grave consequences, and are associated with high mortality rates. Individuals with cervical injuries due to wooden foreign bodies are at an increased risk of developing infectious complications. In this case, a male patient aged 27 years presented with a cervical injury indicative of a penetrating wound caused by a wooden foreign body. Computed tomography (CT) scan revealed no signs of intracranial hemorrhage or fracture. Additionally, cervical CT scan showed no evidence of cervical corpus or longus colli muscle lesions...

Vertex epidural hematomas are very uncommon complications of traumatic head injury. Besides the volume of the epidural bleeding, compression of the superior sagittal sinus may be source for added elevated intracranial pressure. Clinical presentation of such lesions is heterogenous and symptoms can develop in an acute to a chronic frame. Radiological diagnosis can sometimes be challenging. Due to its rarity, such lesions have been only reported on case reports and small series and the management remain controversial...

OBJECTIVE: Many patients with severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) require a tracheostomy after decompressive craniectomy. Determining which patients will require tracheostomy is often challenging. The existing methods for predicting which patients will require tracheostomy are more applicable to stroke and spontaneous intracranial hemorrhage. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) motor score can be used as a screening method for predicting which patients who undergo decompressive craniectomy for severe TBI are likely to require tracheostomy...

OBJECTIVE: Odontoid fractures are treated surgically through the anterior or posterior approach. Each surgical approach has its advantages and disadvantages, so the preferred approach remains debatable. There are few meta-analyses or systemic reviews on the mechanical complications of surgical treatment for odontoid fractures. This meta-analysis aimed to compare the operation-related morbidity, including mechanical complications, and mortality of patients with odontoid fractures, treated via the anterior or posterior approach...

Supratentorial-infratentorial epidural hematomas (SIEH) are a rare occurrence following traumatic head injuries, representing only 2% of traumatic epidural hematomas. Given the unique anatomical characteristics of the infratentorial region, mainly its small size, surgical intervention is commonly undertaken to alleviate the pressure on the posterior fossa components. Consequently, there is ongoing debate surrounding the optimal surgical approaches.In this report, we present four cases of SIEH that were treated surgically...

Post-traumatic hydrocephalus (PTH) is a commonly encountered complication following decompressive craniectomy, and is usually characterized by symptoms including headache, nausea, vomiting, and papilledema. Extracranial herniation accompanied by hemiplegia is a rare complication in patients with PTH who underwent craniectomy after subdural hematoma removal. We report a case of PTH that presented with extracranial herniation within one month of decompressive craniectomy. Following ventriculoperitoneal shunt implantation, left hemiplegia improved dramatically with restoration of the left middle cerebral artery blood flow, which was evident on serial imaging...

Spinal trauma accounts for a large portion of injuries to the spine area, particularly as societies are entering an era of aging populations. Consequently, spine fractures accompanied by osteoporosis are becoming more prevalent. Achieving successful fusion surgery in patients with spine fractures associated with osteoporosis is even more challenging. Pseudarthrosis in the spine does not yield clinically favorable results; however, considerable effort has been made to achieve successful fusion, and the advancement of bone graft substitutes has been particularly crucial in this regard...

Few cases of injuries caused by wild boars have been reported in the literature. Here, we present the case of a 64-year-old male patient who was attacked by a wild boar. The patient had a laceration to the right forehead and a penetrating wound in the area before the right auricle. Computed tomography scan revealed traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage, subdural hemorrhage, right temporal lobe contusion hemorrhage, pneumocephalus, right zygomatic arch and temporal bone fracture, and right coronal process fracture of the mandible...

Yoonjeong Choi, Ja-Ho Leigh
This review describes the incidence rates and trends of traumatic spinal cord injuries (TSCI) and non-traumatic spinal cord injuries (NTSCI) in South Korea. The incidence of NTSCI has increased more rapidly than that of TSCI in recent years. In 2007, TSCI was more common, but by 2020, NTSCI had surpassed TSCI, particularly in older individuals. While men have a higher incidence of both TSCI and NTSCI, the incidence difference by sex is greater in TSCI. The incidence rates of both TSCI and NTSCI are higher in older individuals, particularly those in their 70s and 80s...

OBJECTIVE: Previous studies have reported the presence of a "weekend effect" with respect to mortality in serious emergency admissions, including cases of traumatic brain injury (TBI). However, the relationship between weekend hospitalization and TBI mortality has not been fully established. This study aimed to conduct a systematic review of available evidence and investigate differences in mortality among TBI patients between weekday and weekend admissions. METHODS: Electronic databases including PubMed, Cochrane Library, and Embase were used to obtain relevant articles...

The development of spinal cord represents evolutionary progression. The primitive tract is responsible for functions related to basic survival such as locomotion. In contrast, the developed tracts are involved in perceiving the external environment and controlling conscious movements. There are also differences in the arrangement of spinal tracts between the 2 categories. Tracts serving developed functions are located in the deep layer of the lateral funiculus, whereas primitive tracts occupy other areas. Decussation correlates with tract pathways, with primitive tracts projecting ipsilaterally and developing tracts decussating early...

Spontaneous acute epidural hematoma (AEDH) co-occurring with metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) of the skull is rare, with only 7 documented cases in existing literature. This report describes the case of a 42-year-old man who presented with decreased consciousness following intermittent headaches following minor head trauma. Computed tomography imaging revealed an AEDH, prompting surgical intervention. Despite preliminary assumptions linking the causes of the trauma, surgical exploration revealed no evidence of traumatic injury...

OBJECTIVE: Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is a commonly encountered neurosurgical pathology that frequently requires surgical intervention. With an increasingly aging demographic, more older people and patients with comorbidities will present with symptomatic CSDH. This study evaluated clinical and laboratory factors affecting the short-term outcomes of CSDH after surgical intervention. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 170 patients who underwent burr-hole trephination for CSDH in a single institution from January 2019 to December 2021...
