Microsurgical training model for residents to approach to the orbit and the optic nerve in fresh cadaveric sheep cranium
Background: Neurosurgery and ophthalmology residents need many years to improve microsurgical skills. Laboratory training models are very important for developing surgical skills before clinicalExpand
Fully endoscopic interlaminar and transforaminal lumbar discectomy: short-term clinical results of 163 surgically treated patients.
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical outcomes of patients with lumbar disc disease undergoing fully endoscopic surgery at a single clinic. METHODS Between August 2009 and January 2012, 163 patientsExpand
Unilateral endoscopic optic nerve decompression for idiopathic intracranial hypertension: a series of 10 patients.

The use of the YELLOW 560nm surgical microscope filter for sodium fluorescein-guided resection of brain tumors: Our preliminary results in a series of 28 patients
OBJECTIVE Sodium fluorescein (Na-Fl) is a fluorescent dye that accumulates in tumoral tissues via disrupted blood-brain barrier. It has been used in fluorescence-guided surgery for various brainExpand
Fluorescein-Guided Resection of Intramedullary Spinal Cord Tumors: Results from a Preliminary, Multicentric, Retrospective Study.
BACKGROUND Intramedullary spinal cord tumors (IMSCTs) are rare, heterogenous lesions that are usually enhanced on preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) because of a damaged blood-brainExpand
Use of Sodium Fluorescein in Meningioma Surgery Performed Under the YELLOW-560 nm Surgical Microscope Filter: Feasibility and Preliminary Results.
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility of sodium fluorescein (Na-Fl)-guided surgery involving the use of the PENTERO 900 surgical microscope equipped with the YELLOW-560 nm filter and low-dose Na-FLExpand
Serum creatine phosphokinase levels as an indicator of muscle injury following lumbar disc surgery: Comparison of fully endoscopic discectomy and microdiscectomy
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to make a comparison between fully endoscopic lumbar discectomy (FELD) and conventional microdiscectomy (MD) by using pre- and postoperative serum creatineExpand
Posterior fossa epidural hematomas in children: clinical experience with 40 cases.
OBJECT Traumatic posterior fossa epidural hematoma (PFEDH) is rare, but among children it may have a slightly higher incidence. With the widespread use of CT scanning, the diagnosis of PFEDH can beExpand
Fully endoscopic supraorbital keyhole approach to the anterior cranial base: A cadaveric study
Introduction: The supraorbital keyhole approach for anterior cranial base lesions has been increasingly used in clinical practice. Anatomical studies focusing on the endoscopic anatomy via thisExpand
Emergency management of an acute tension pneumocephalus following ventriculoperitoneal shunt surgery for normal pressure hydrocephalus.
Tension pneumocephalus is a rare and life threatening complication of intracranial surgical procedures, and requires immediate recognition and surgical intervention. Tension pneumocephalus followingExpand
