Various shunt systems have been developed for the treatment of hydrocephalus. One of the main issues surrounding these systems is overshunting due to siphoning. In this paper the authors discuss the pathophysiology of CSF(More)

We report the case of 22-year-old man with nontraumatic intracystic hemorrhage into a middle cranial fossa arachnoid cyst associated with a contiguous subacute subdural hematoma. Arachnoid cysts are benign intra-arachnoidal fluid collections frequently detected incidentally during neuroimaging. Rare complications of arachnoid cysts such as intracystic(More)
Lateral approaches to the lumbar disc space have become popular in recent years with very few reported complications. We report on a rare case of a stand-alone cage migration. A 77-year-old female presented with a right L2-3 radiculopathy that was refractory to maximum medical management. This was secondary to foraminal compression at L2-3 and L3-4 due to(More)
We present a novel minimally invasive technique for lumbopelvic instrumentation in selected elderly patients suffering from traumatic sacrolisthesis. An 82-year-old female suffered from sacrolisthesis after a fall. She developed significant low back pain and bilateral lower extremity radiculopathy. Preoperative radiographs and magnetic resonance imaging(More)
