TLDR
Good seizure control with a low incidence of side effects is obtained using topiramate in brain tumor associated epilepsy using AEDs.
Levetiracetam therapy in patients with brain tumour and epilepsy
TLDR
Preliminary open data indicate that add-on treatment with LEV in patients with brain tumours is safe and appears to be effective in reducing seizure frequency.
Metastases to the cerebellum. Results and prognostic factors in a consecutive series of 44 operated patients
TLDR
Open microneurosurgery is probably still the most effective therapy in improving survival and KPS in patients with large cerebellar metastases, given that the proper surgical technique is used and that complications do not occur.
Bone metastasis from glioblastoma multiforme without central nervous system relapse: a case report.
TLDR
The case of a man affected by a glioblastoma who had a lumbar spine metastases without any brain relapse after excision of cerebral gliOBlastoma multiforme and brain radiotherapy is reported.
Fixed dose-rate gemcitabine as radiosensitizer for newly diagnosed glioblastoma: a dose-finding study
TLDR
Fixed dose-rate gemcitabine at 175 mg/m2/weekly is the recommended regimen for further evaluation in a phase II study that is presently in progress, and at this dose only two grade three toxicities were reported.
Asymptomatic Esophageal Perforation Caused by Late Screw Migration After Anterior Cervical Plating: Report of a Case and Review of Relevant Literature
TLDR
This case demonstrates that a serious complication may not need any treatment, and each case of screw displacement in anterior cervical spine surgery should be evaluated separately in conjunction with the clinical symptoms of the patient, as spontaneous resolution is possible.
Somatostatin receptor imaging in CNS tumours using 111In‐octreotide
TLDR
111In-octreotide is a suitable radiopharmaceutical for characterizing CNS tumours in vivo as SS receptor positive or negative, and this new neuronuclear imaging technique may be useful for differential diagnosis in selected cases, for post-surgical follow-up and in the assessment of differentiation in glial tumours.
The transdural extension of gliomas
TLDR
Two cases, a glioblastoma and an oligodendroglioma, both presenting extradural diffusion, where the tumor found its way out from the neurocranium, far from the site of the operation, perforating the dura and the bone of the cranial base are reported.
