Awake craniotomy versus surgery under general anesthesia for resection of intrinsic lesions of eloquent cortex—A prospective randomised study
TLDR
A prospective randomized comparative study of results of surgery under awake versus surgery under general anesthesia for intrinsic eloquent area lesions for intrinsic brain tumors in eloquent areas finds that awake surgery may achieve more aggressive tumor resection and minimize postoperative neurological morbidity. Expand
Terminal myelocystoceles: a series of 17 cases.
TLDR
The authors present the largest study of patients with terminal myelocystoceles to date and emphasize that the possibility of this condition must be kept in mind when addressing all congenital lumbosacral masses. Expand
Topical airway anesthesia for awake fiberoptic intubation: Comparison between airway nerve blocks and nebulized lignocaine by ultrasonic nebulizer
TLDR
Upper airway blocks provide better quality of anesthesia than lignocaine nebulization as assessed by patient recall of procedure, coughing/gagging episodes, ease of intubation, vocal cord visibility, and time taken to intubate. Expand
An Unusual Presentation of Lumbosacral Dermal Sinus with CSF Leak and Meningitis
TLDR
An interesting case of a 33-month-old female child with dermal sinus CSF leak, tethered cord and intradural dermoids who presented with meningitis and was treated with excision of the tract, removal of the dermoid and detethering of the cord is presented. Expand
Cranioplasty following decompressive craniectomy in traumatic brain injury: Experience at Level — I apex trauma centre
TLDR
There was no correlation of complications or need for reoperation with type of materials, storage of the bone or timing of surgery, and a seemingly smaller neurosurgical operation requires good surgical approach to minimize morbidity associated with cranioplasty. Expand
Split cord malformations: a clinical study of 254 patients and a proposal for a new clinical-imaging classification.
TLDR
The authors present the largest series on SCM so far reported in the world literature and suggest all patients with SCM should be surgically treated prophylactically even if they are asymptomatic, because the risk of neurological deficits developing increases with age. Expand
Recurrence in craniopharyngiomas: Analysis of clinical and histological features
TLDR
The significant clinical factors predictive of recurrence included the extent of resection, tumor size greater than 4 cm and cystic tumors, and a papillary pattern seen in 18.6% of cases. Expand
Decompressive craniectomy in traumatic brain injury: A single-center, multivariate analysis of 1,236 patients at a tertiary care hospital in India.
TLDR
The severity of head injury, performing a duraplasty rather than a slit durotomy, avoidance of a contralateral DC, and the presence of preoperative hypotension, infarct, and/or pupillary asymmetry have the highest odds of predicting the short term Glasgow outcome score (GOS) at the time of discharge, after a DC in patients with TBI. Expand
Surgical results of growing skull fractures in children: a single centre study of 43 cases
TLDR
Good-to-excellent outcomes are noted in majority, even in cases with delayed presentations, and emphasis on early treatment is highlighted which is probably beneficial in improving neurological deficits. Expand
Isolated spinal neurocysticercosis with clinical pleomorphism.
TLDR
Spinal neurocysticercosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis in high-risk populations with new symptoms suggestive of a spinal mass lesion with no neurological deficits as in the present case. Expand
