Veins as the source of trigeminal neuralgias (TN) lead to controversies. Only a few studies have specifically dealt with venous implication in neurovascular conflicts (NVC). The aim of this study was the anatomical-surgical description of the compressive veins found during micro-vascular decompression (MVD). Patients retained were those in whom a vein was(More)
Implication of veins as neurovascular conflict (NVC) in the genesis of trigeminal neuralgia (TN) remains a matter of debate. Few reports dealing with venous NVC have been published. The objective of this study is to describe the outcome in a historical cohort of consecutive patients with classical TN due to venous compression. All patients with TN treated(More)
INTRODUCTION High-grade gliomas surgery in eloquent areas must achieve two pivotal aims: oncological efficacy and preservation of unimpaired neurological functions or improvement of impaired neurological functions. Here, we evaluated the safety and the usefulness of 5-ALA fluorescence-guided surgery in eloquent areas. MATERIAL AND METHODS Single center,(More)
BACKGROUND The management of gliomas is based on precise histologic diagnosis. The tumor tissue can be obtained during open surgery or via stereotactic biopsy. Intraoperative tissue imaging could substantially improve biopsy precision and, ultimately, the extent of resection. OBJECTIVE To show the feasibility of intraoperative in vivo probe-based confocal(More)
