Ventriculoperitoneal shunt perforations of the gastrointestinal tract.
TLDR
The frequency of perforations by Chhabra shunts appears to be higher than the frequency associated with other shunts, and the increased frequency does not correlate with their stiffness but may reflect their greater frictional forces.
3D printing in neurosurgery education: a review
TLDR
Unexplored areas of 3D printing for neurosurgical simulation include models simulating the resection of intrinsic brain tumors or of epilepsy surgery lesions, as these require complex models to accurately simulate fine dissection techniques.
Hydranencephaly treatments: retrospective case series and review of the literature.
TLDR
Head size decreased by 1 cm or more in similar proportions of infants with hydranencephaly who were treated by VPS insertion, CPC, and CPlx, and progressed in those who received palliative care.
Multiple hippocampal transections: Post-operative Memory Outcomes and Seizure Control
TLDR
A systematic review suggests that this approach is effective at preserving verbal memory in patients with good baseline function, and comparison to a well-established procedure such as temporal lobectomy and amydalohippocampectomy must be guided by further evidence.
Cerebrospinal fluid ascites. a case report and literature review
TLDR
A 7year old child with abdominal distention five years after ventriculoperitoneal shunt insertion for hydrocephalus secondary to aqueductal stenosis is reported, who had a history of multiple shunt revisions.
Pediatric Neurosurgery in East Africa: An Education and Needs-Based Survey.
TLDR
This survey identified areas of education and training needs to guide further neurosurgical education efforts in East Africa.
Application of 3D Printing Support Material for Neurosurgical Simulation
TLDR
3D printer support material, SUP 706, manufactured by Stratasys Ltd, is presented as a non-waste alternative for sustainably engineering solutions for surgical education and found to be more suitable than using silicone or TissueMatrix™ for demonstrating brain dissection techniques.
Digital Twin Technology: The Future of Predicting Neurological Complications of Pediatric Cancers and Their Treatment
Healthcare technologies have seen a surge in utilization during the COVID 19 pandemic. Remote patient care, virtual follow-up and other forms of futurism will likely see further adaptation both as a
