Hypofractionated stereotactic radiation therapy: an effective therapy for recurrent high-grade gliomas.
PURPOSE Salvage options for recurrent high-grade gliomas (HGGs) are limited by cumulative toxicity and limited efficacy despite advances in chemotherapeutic and radiotherapeutic techniques. PreviousExpand
Targeting metabolism with a ketogenic diet during the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme
Abstract Retrospective data suggests that low serum glucose levels during the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) may improve clinical outcomes. As such, many patients are implementing aExpand
In vivo retinal nerve fiber layer thickness measured by optical coherence tomography predicts visual recovery after surgery for parachiasmal tumors.
PURPOSE Restoration of visual function after neurosurgery for parachiasmal tumors is variable and unpredictable. The current study was conducted to determine whether in vivo retinal nerve fiber layerExpand
A review of 3 current radiosurgery systems.
BACKGROUND Stereotactic radiosurgery and fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy have become widespread techniques applied to the treatment of a variety of intracranial lesions. Rapid evolution of newExpand
Theta and High-Frequency Activity Mark Spontaneous Recall of Episodic Memories
Humans possess the remarkable ability to search their memory, allowing specific past episodes to be re-experienced spontaneously. Here, we administered a free recall test to 114 neurosurgicalExpand
Bypass Grafting and Revascularization in the Management of Posterior Circulation Aneurysms
OBJECTIVE: To describe the bypass techniques, cranial base approaches, results of treatment, causes of failure, and lessons that are learned in patients with posterior circulation aneurysms requiringExpand
Endoscopic repair of high‐flow cranial base defects using a bilayer button
Repair of the skull base still begins with a direct repair of the dural defect. We present a new button closure for primary repair of the dura for high flow defects.
Impact of a Standardized Protocol and Antibiotic‐Impregnated Catheters on Ventriculostomy Infection Rates in Cerebrovascular Patients
BACKGROUNDVentriculostomy infections create significant morbidity. To reduce infection rates, a standardized evidence-based catheter insertion protocol was implemented. A prospective observationalExpand
Plan Quality and Treatment Efficiency for Radiosurgery to Multiple Brain Metastases: Non-Coplanar RapidArc vs. Gamma Knife
Objectives This study compares the dosimetry and efficiency of two modern radiosurgery [stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS)] modalities for multiple brain metastases [Gamma Knife (GK) and LINAC-basedExpand
Inadvertent insertion of nasogastric tube into the brain stem and spinal cord after endoscopic skull base surgery.
A significant number of neurosurgical patients require feeding tube placement via a nasogastric route. It is used as a temporary access for enteral feeding until patients are able to swallow orExpand
