Cranial defect repair in the pediatric population requires a variety of special considerations. The pediatric skull has a dynamic nature that prohibits the use of rigid fixation, which is commonly applied in the adult population. A technique using a combination of polylactic acid plates and carbonated apatite bone cement has been devised by our group. Skull(More)
Radial tunnel syndrome (RTS) is thought to result from intermittent and dynamic compression of the posterior interosseous nerve (PIN) in the proximal part of the forearm associated with repeated supination and pronation. The diagnostic criteria encompassing RTS are purely clinical and the term "radial tunnel syndrome" has become controversial because of the(More)
To date, there are no broad-based studies defining the standard of care for pediatric neurosurgeons in the area of cranial fixation. Thus, the techniques for cranial fixation remain largely surgeon dependent. Over the past few years, there have been several new cranial fixation devices approved for use in the United States. To gain insights into techniques(More)
Dear Editor: We read with interest the recent report by Kumar et al. [4] “Subependymal giant cell astrocytoma: a report of five cases.” The five cases exemplify the highly variable penetrance within tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). Familial relations were not present in any of the patients. Recent studies have demonstrated that approximately 66% of TS(More)
