Inhibitors of BRAFV600E kinase are currently under investigations in preclinical and clinical studies involving BRAFV600E glioma. Studies demonstrated clinical response to such individualized therapy in the majority of patients whereas in some patients tumors continue to grow despite treatment. To study resistance mechanisms, which include feedback(More)
BACKGROUND Early detection of vasospasm (VS) following aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) is vital to trigger therapy and to prevent infarction and subsequent permanent neurological deficit. Although motor evoked potentials (MEPs) are a well-established method for intraoperative detection of cerebral VS and cerebral ischemia during aneurysm surgery,(More)
The most appropriate surgical technique for posterior fossa decompression in Chiari malformation (CM) remains a matter of debate. Intraoperative electrophysiological studies during posterior fossa decompression of Type I CM (CM-I) aim to shed light on the entity's pathomechanism as well as on the ideal extent of decompression. The existing reports on this(More)
In the last decade evidence has accumulated that suggests that the cerebellum is involved not only in motor but also in behavioral and cognitive functions. A myriad of anatomical, clinical and imaging studies support that assumption. The lengthened survival of patients with cerebellar tumors has also brought an increased awareness of neurocognitive deficits(More)
