Long-term control of petroclival meningiomas through radiosurgery.
TLDR
In this 21-year experience, GKS for petroclival meningiomas obviated initial or further resection in 98% of patients and was associated with a low risk of adverse radiation effects.
Arteriovenous malformation radiosurgery: a twenty year perspective.
TLDR
The size of the AVM, pattern of venous drainage, and neurological eloquence of adjacent brain are important considerations for prediction of outcome after resection, 69 outcome after AVM radiosurgery can be predicted using nidus volume and location and age of the patient.
Retrospective analysis of spinal missile injuries
TLDR
Surgical intervention is not essential for spinal gunshot injury; however, it may be beneficial for patients with CSF fistula, infectious and compressing foreign bodies in the injury site, instability, and rapid neurological deterioration.
Prospective Staged Volume Radiosurgery for Large Arteriovenous Malformations: Indications and Outcomes in Otherwise Untreatable Patients
TLDR
Prospective staged volume radiosurgery provided imaging defined volumetric reduction or closure in a series of large AVMs unsuitable for any other therapy after 5 years, which suggests that AVM related symptoms can be stabilized and anticipated bleed rates can be reduced.
Prospective staged volume radiosurgery for large arteriovenous malformations: indications and outcomes in otherwise untreatable patients.
TLDR
Prospective staged volume radiosurgery provided imaging defined volumetric reduction or closure in a series of large AVMs unsuitable for any other therapy after 5 years, which suggests that AVM related symptoms can be stabilized and anticipated bleed rates can be reduced.
Is spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma in elderly patients an emergency surgical case?
TLDR
A case with spontaneous resolution of SSEH which is extremely rare is presented, a man who presented to his clinic with mild paraparesis at the seventh day of his symptoms and the neurological deficits showed complete recovery on the 25th day of the clinical course.
Stereotactic radiosurgery for arteriovenous malformations, Part 6: multistaged volumetric management of large arteriovenous malformations.
TLDR
In the future, prospective volume-staged SRS followed by embolization (to reduce flow, obliterate fistulas, and occlude associated aneurysms) may improve obliteration results and further reduce the risk of hemorrhage after SRS.
The evaluation of surgical treatment options in the Chiari Malformation Type I.
TLDR
Almost the same clinical outcomes can be achieved with and without duroplasty, and there might be an option to perform duro Plasty if simple procedure fails.
