PURPOSE Controlled cortical impact (CCI) models in adult and aged Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats have been used extensively to study medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) injury and the effects of post-injury progesterone treatment, but the hormone's effects after traumatic brain injury (TBI) in juvenile animals have not been determined. In the present proof-of-concept(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with cerebrospinal fluid shunts frequently present to the emergency department (ED) with suspected shunt malfunction. The outcome of those patients who were discharged from ED when shunt malfunction was deemed unlikely has not been previously documented. OBJECTIVE To demonstrate there is no increase in severity or likelihood of harm(More)
The clinical understanding of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and its manifestations is beginning to change. Both clinicians and research scientists are recognizing that TBI and related disorders such as stroke are complex, systemic inflammatory and degenerative diseases that require an approach to treatment more sophisticated than targeting a single gene,(More)
This is a compact visual description of a combination of surgical technique and device for the delivery of (gene and cell) therapies into the spinal cord. While the technique is demonstrated in the animal, the procedure is FDA-approved and currently being used for stem cell transplantation into the spinal cords of patients with ALS. While the FDA has(More)
OBJECTIVE Traumatic high-grade cervical spinal dislocations are rare injuries, generally associated with severe neurological compromise. In particular, cervical spondyloptosis (>100% subluxation) is rarely reported. The object of our study is to present a case series describing presentation, management, and outcome in traumatic high-grade cervical spinal(More)

BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE Harlequin syndrome is a rare neurological condition involving various degrees of unilateral hyperhidrosis and erythema of the head and neck. We present a clinical presentation and description of curative therapy in a patient with a sudden onset of Harlequin syndrome following a thoracotomy. CLINICAL PRESENTATION A 42-year-old(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the safety and efficacy of neuroendoscopic colloid cyst resection and to assess patient satisfaction. METHODS A retrospective analysis of a single surgeon's experience with neuroendoscopic resection of colloid cysts was performed. Surgeries performed in 56 patients were reviewed. Surgeries involved an anterolateral neuroendoscopic(More)
Pure neuroendoscopic resection of intraventricular lesions through a burr hole is limited by the instrumentation that can be used with a working channel endoscope. We describe a safety and feasibility study of a variable aspiration tissue resector, for the resection of a variety of intraventricular lesions. Our initial experience using the variable(More)
OBJECT The authors describe the use of inside-outside occipital screws in 21 children with occipitocervical instability requiring occipitocervical fusion. METHODS The ages of the patients were from 2 to 15 years, and patients presented with a variety of causes of occipitocervical instability, including congenital disorders, posttraumatic instability,(More)
