Deterministic Diffusion Fiber Tracking Improved by Quantitative Anisotropy
TLDR
The performance of quantitative anisotropy (QA) in facilitating deterministic fiber tracking may assist fiber tracking studies and facilitate the advancement of human connectomics.
European position paper on endoscopic management of tumours of the nose, paranasal sinuses and skull base.
TLDR
The present document is intended to be a state-of-the art review of neoplasia affecting the nose, paranasal sinuses and adjacent skull base to provide an evidence-based review of the diagnostic methods and to propose algorithms for the management of the disease.
Letter: Precautions for Endoscopic Transnasal Skull Base Surgery During the COVID-19 Pandemic
TLDR
The goal with this preliminary, rapid article is to alert surgeons of the need to temporarily alter their practices to avoid repeating the unfortunate experience of the early period of the COVID-19 epidemic.
The claustrum and its projection system in the human brain: a microsurgical and tractographic anatomical study.
TLDR
The combination of the fiber dissection technique and DT imaging-based tractography supports the presence of the claustrocortical system as an integrative network in humans and offers the potential to aid in understanding the diffusion of gliomas in the insula and other areas of the brain.
Subcomponents and connectivity of the superior longitudinal fasciculus in the human brain
TLDR
A strong asymmetry of the dorsal SLF (SLF-II), where the connectivity between the supramarginal gyrus with the dorsal precentral gyrus and the caudal middle frontal gyrus was only present in the left hemisphere, is identified.
Three-dimensional microsurgical and tractographic anatomy of the white matter of the human brain.
TLDR
The fiber-dissection and diffusion-tensor magnetic resonance imaging techniques are reciprocally enriched not only in their application to the study of the complex intrinsic architecture of the brain, but also in their practical use for diagnosis and surgical planning.
Meyer’s Loop and the Optic Radiations in the Transsylvian Approach to the Mediobasal Temporal Lobe
TLDR
In the transsylvian approach to the temporal horn, incisions at the level of the limen, or adjacent 5 mm of the inferior insular sulcus, are less likely to damage Meyer’s loop and the optic radiations than more posterior incisions along the inferior INSULAR sulcus.
Endoscopic endonasal surgery for giant pituitary adenomas: advantages and limitations.
TLDR
Endoscopic endonasal surgery provides effective initial management of giant pituitary adenomas with favorable results compared with traditional microscopic transsphenoidal and transcranial approaches.
Endoscopic endonasal surgery for suprasellar meningiomas: experience with 75 patients.
TLDR
With the goal of gross-total tumor resection and visual improvement, EES can achieve very good results, (comparable to microscopic approaches) for the treatment of suprasellar meningiomas.
