The pediatric Chiari I malformation: a review
TLDR
Analyzes the literature regarding this form of hindbrain herniation in regard to definition, anatomy, pathobiology, symptoms, findings, treatment, and outcomes to elucidate the optimal selection and treatment criteria.
Hypertonic saline for treating raised intracranial pressure: literature review with meta-analysis.
TLDR
A greater part of the data suggest that HTS given as either a bolus or continuous infusion can be more effective than mannitol in reducing episodes of elevated ICP.
Myocardial bridges: A review
TLDR
The evidence that exists regarding myocardial bridging and the potential for bridging to cause myocardIAL ischemia are discussed and a reduced reserve in coronary blood flow is suggested.
A review of subclavian steal syndrome with clinical correlation
TLDR
Conservative treatment is the initial best therapy for this syndrome, with surgery reserved for refractory symptomatic cases, and percutaneous angioplasty and stenting, rather than bypass grafts of the subclavian artery, is the widely favored surgical approach.
Facial asymmetry in young healthy subjects evaluated by statistical shape analysis
TLDR
It was found that the left side of the face was most commonly dominant in both males and females, and this data may be useful in establishing a database for future similar studies.
Chiari’s network: review of the literature
TLDR
While initially discovered and researched using autopsy dissections, Chiari’s network is often found as an incidental finding on diagnostic imaging studies, thus providing new methods for studying its incidence and clinical significance.
Surgical experience in 130 pediatric patients with Chiari I malformations.
TLDR
This is believed to be the largest reported series of pediatric patients who have undergone posterior fossa decompression for Chiari I malformations and almost all syringes will stabilize or improve with posterior fosse decompression and duraplasty.
Thoracic outlet syndrome: A neurological and vascular disorder
TLDR
The future of TOS management must emphasize the improvement of available diagnostic and treatment techniques, and the development of a consensus gold standard for diagnosis.
