The advent of exoscopes has the potential to begin to allow surgeons to move beyond solely the microscope for intraoperative visualization while improving upon its ergonomic disadvantages.
A Road Map to the Internal Carotid Artery in Expanded Endoscopic Endonasal Approaches to the Ventral Cranial Base
The proposed endoscopic classification outlines key anatomic reference points independent of the vessel's geometry or the sinonasal pneumatization, thus serving as a practical guide to navigate the ventral cranial base while avoiding injury to the ICA and a further foundation for a modular access system.
Flow diversion in the treatment of carotid injury and carotid-cavernous fistula after transsphenoidal surgery
Flow diverters may offer a simple and potentially safe vessel-sparing option in this rare complication of transsphenoidal surgery.
The Inferior Nuchal Line as a Simple Landmark for Identifying the Vertebral Artery During the Retrosigmoid Approach.
The inferior nuchal line (INL) provides an important landmark during RS approach that can protect the V3-VA from inadvertent injury or identify it for use in an interpositional bypass.
Comparative analysis of the combined petrosal and the pretemporal transcavernous anterior petrosal approach to the petroclival region.
This is the first study to quantitatively identify the advantages and limitations of the CP and PTAP approaches from an anatomical perspective and aid in designing maximally effective yet minimally invasive approaches to PCM.
The Safety and Feasibility of Image-Guided BrainPath-Mediated Transsulcul Hematoma Evacuation: A Multicenter Study
The integrated approach was safely performed in all patients with a relatively high rate of clot evacuation and functional independence and was statistically significant ( P < .001).
The Medial Opticocarotid Recess: An Anatomic Study of an Endoscopic “Key Landmark” for the Ventral Cranial Base
The MOCR and middle clinoid process are distinct structures that are a key landmark for endoscopic approaches to the sellar and suprasellar regions because of its location at the confluence of the optic Canal, the carotid canal, the sella, and the anterior cranial base.
Part I: The challenge of functional preservation: an integrated systems approach using diffusion-weighted, image-guided, exoscopic-assisted, transulcal radial corridors
The authors hypothesize that the consistent adoption of standardized imaging, navigation, access, optics and resection technologies as a system identifies and protects eloquent tissue.
Part II: an evaluation of an integrated systems approach using diffusion-weighted, image-guided, exoscopic-assisted, transulcal radial corridors
The integration of the 6 Pillar approach provides a safe and effective parafascicular minimally invasive corridor to subcortical lesions involving the sensorimotor area and is needed to determine long-term efficacy, durability, and degree of resection within each category.
Letter: The Impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic on Neurosurgeons Worldwide
The aim of this study was to explore the impact of this pandemic on neurosurgeons with the hope of improving preparedness for future crisis.
