BACKGROUND The authors used selective peripheral neurotomy (SPN) on the sciatic and obturator nerves to restore the sitting posture and ambulation in bedridden patients suffering from severe proximal lower limb spasticity. OBJECTIVE To study the surgical outcome of sciatic and obturator neurotomies. METHODS All patients with refractory hamstring(More)
Selective tibial neurotomy (STN) is an effective neurosurgical intervention for treating ankle spasticity. The authors use intraoperative electromyography (EMG) for selecting targeted fascicles and determining the degree of fascicular resection in STN. This study reports surgical techniques and outcomes of the operation. Participants who underwent STN with(More)
BACKGROUND The authors frequently employed selective peripheral neurotomy (SPN) as the primary treatment of severe intractable focal and multifocal spastic hypertonia. We occasionally operated SPN in diffuse spastic disorders. OBJECTIVE To study surgical outcome of SPN in terms of severity of spasticity and functional condition. METHODS Patients(More)
STUDY DESIGN This research is a retrospective study. OBJECTIVE To study the therapeutic effects of operative procedures, including dorsal longitudinal myelotomy (DLM) and dorsal root entry zone lesion (DREZL) on spasticity and associated aspects. SETTING Tertiary university hospital in Bangkok, Thailand. METHODS Eighteen patients with refractory(More)
Severe spasticity adversely affects patient functional status and caregiving. No previous study has compared efficacy between dorsal root entry zone lesioning (DREZL) and selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR) for reduction of spasticity. This study aimed to investigate the efficacy of DREZL and SDR for attenuating spasticity, and to compare efficacy between(More)
OBJECTIVE Atypical meningioma has a higher recurrence rate than benign meningioma. The mainstay of treatment is surgery with or without radiation therapy (RT). The objective of this study was to investigate progression-free survival (PFS) and factors associated with postoperative recurrence in patients with atypical meningioma. METHODS Patients with(More)
