Vascular Eagle's Syndrome: Two Cases Illustrating Distinct Mechanisms of Cerebral Ischemia.
TLDR
Two cases of Vascular Eagle's Syndrome are reported, which demonstrate two distinct mechanisms of cerebral ischemia, which arose as a direct result of compression of the internal carotid artery.
Effects of decompressive craniectomy on functional outcomes and death in poor-grade aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
This study summarizes the best evidence available in the literature for DC in patients with poor-grade aSAH and concludes that DC is associated with high rates of unfavorable outcome and death.
Bridging the Gap between Evidence and Practice for Adults with Medically Refractory Temporal Lobe Epilepsy: Is a Change in Funding Policy Needed to Stimulate a Shift in Practice?
TLDR
Although updated evaluations that are more generalizable across settings are necessary, surgery appears to be a favorable option from a health economic perspective.
A Practical Methodological Approach Towards Identifying Core Competencies in Medical Education Based on Literature Trends: A Feasibility Study Based on Vestibular Schwannoma Science.
TLDR
This methodology can serve as a supplemental strategy for identifying additional core competencies in CBME and reflects how the peer-reviewed literature reflects actual practice interests, educators can tailor curricula to ensure that trainees remain current.
Length of MRI signal may predict outcome in advanced cervical spondylotic myelopathy
TLDR
Regaining IW after surgery in patients with advanced CSM was less likely for cases showing MRI features of longer T2WI signal changes and T1WI hypointensity, and better baseline walking, less defined T2 WI signal change, and a wider spinal canal were good prognostic factors.
P.085 Perioperative endovascular procedure utilization in transsphenoidal surgery patients at two tertiary-care academic centres
TLDR
Patients undergoing transsphenoidal surgery should be managed with a multidisciplinary team ensuring that endovascular treatment options are made available during the perioperative period, and anatomical features predisposing to vascular injury are discussed.
