Postoperative pain following excision of acoustic neuroma by the suboccipital approach: observations on possible cause and potential amelioration.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that pain may be caused, in part, by adherence of healing nuchal soft tissue to underlying dura following suboccipital craniectomy.
Pain after Surgery for Acoustic Neuroma
TLDR
Of patients who underwent tumor excision by means of the suboccipital approach, 63.7% experienced significant local discomfort and headache, whereas this was notably absent in all those who had undergone translabyrinthine excision.
Management of cervical spinal cord injury in ankylosing spondylitis: the intervertebral disc as a cause of cord compression.

TLDR
It is concluded that fracture/dislocations of the cervical spine should be managed initially by halo-vest immobilization, without prior traction and with careful incremental correction of flexion deformity.
The University of Toronto Head Injury Treatment Study: A Prospective, Randomized Comparison of Pentobarbital and Mannitol
TLDR
Multivariate statistical analysis indicates that pentobarbital coma is not better than mannitol for the treatment of intracranial hypertension and may be harmful in no-hematoma patients with intrac Cranial hypertension after head injury.
Cerebrospinal fluid leaks and meningitis in acoustic neuroma surgery
TLDR
Patients who had surgery for 321 acoustic tumors at the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center, University of Toronto, from April 1975 to March 1990 are reviewed, finding complications were more common in larger tumors and after the combined translabyrinthine middle fossa approach.
Primary intramedullary primitive neuroectodermal tumor of the spinal cord: case report and review of the literature.
TLDR
Primary intraspinal primitive neuroectodermal tumors are rare tumors and carry a poor prognosis and the present case is the second one in which the tumor was purely intramedullary.
Recurrent intracranial hemorrhage due to postpartum cerebral angiopathy: implications for management.
TLDR
Recognition of this condition may preclude treatment with potentially toxic therapies for vasculitis and will have important implications for counseling women on subsequent pregnancies.
DIMETHYL SULFOXIDE IN CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM TRAUMA
TLDR
The data from these studies suggest that in the experimental models used, DMSO is clearly superior to no treatment, and appears to be more generally effective than other comparable treatments.
Cerebrospinal fluid leak after acoustic neuroma surgery: influence of tumor size and surgical approach on incidence and response to treatment.
TLDR
The rate of CSF leakage after TL and RS procedures has remained stable and factors influencing its occurrence include tumor size but not surgical approach, an additional factor to consider when choosing an approach.
Hearing preservation in the removal of intracanalicular acoustic neuromas via the retrosigmoid approach.
TLDR
Surgical excision of intracanalicular acoustic neuromas in otherwise healthy patients appears to be warranted if preservation of useful binaural hearing is considered a worthwhile objective and if perioperative morbidity can be maintained at an acceptably low level.
