Primary intraosseous cavernous hemangiomas (PICHs) of the skull are rare benign tumors that account for about 0.2– 1% of all benign neoplasms of [1, 2]. They are typically located in the parietal and frontal bones of the calvarium, whereas location in the craniofacial bones is less common (zygoma, maxilla, mandible, and vomer) [1, 2]. PICHs of the skull(More)
To compare the safety and effectiveness of minimally invasive sacroiliac joint fusion (SIJF) using triangular titanium implants vs conservative management (CM) in patients with chronic sacroiliac joint (SIJ) pain. 103 adults with chronic SIJ pain at nine sites in four European countries were randomly assigned to and underwent either minimally invasive SIJF(More)
One underlying aspect of a decompressive craniotomy is the brain-cranium interface. Due to the high pressure, the brain has the tendency to mushroom and squeeze the brain tissue at the bony edges of the craniotomy. A small modification to the decompressive craniotomy is described. The inner tabula and part of the diploe are drilled away using a high-speed(More)
BACKGROUND Low back pain (LBP) emanating from the sacroiliac joint (SIJ) is a common finding. Devices to fuse the SIJ are now commercially available, but high-quality evidence supporting their effectiveness is limited. OBJECTIVES To compare the safety and effectiveness of conservative management (CM) to minimally invasive sacroiliac joint fusion (SIJF) in(More)
The first results from the randomized, controlled iFuse Implant System Minimally Invasive Arthrodesis (iMIA) trial showed that minimally invasive surgical management (MISM) of low back pain originating from the sacroiliac joint (SIJ) by placing transarticular triangular titanium implants reduced pain more effectively than conservative management (CM).
