It has been more than a decade since the appearance of the First Edition of this book. Much progress has been made, but some controversies remain. The idea that the stratigraphic record could be subdivided into sequences and that these sequences store essential information about basin-forming and subsidence processes remains as powerful an idea as when it was first formulated. L. L. Sloss and P. R. Vail are to be credited with the establishment of the modern era of sequence stratigraphy. The… 
Minipterional Approach for Middle Fossa Skull Base Lesions: Technical Note
The Minipterional technique allows approaching these lesions when the posterior fossa approach is compromised by anatomical distortion and enables the simultaneous treatment of secondary trigeminal neuralgia and other lesions, such as aneurysms and meningiomas.
An update on idiopathic intracranial hypertension in adults: a look at pathophysiology, diagnostic approach and management
Neuroradiological signs acquire greater importance in patients who do not present papilloedema and may suggest the diagnosis of idiopathic intracranial hypertension, and cerebrospinal fluid pressure measurement is required to establish a definite diagnosis.
Dynamic Changes in White Matter Hyperintensities in Reversible Cerebral Vasoconstriction Syndrome
White matter hyperintensities in patients with RCVS have a dynamic temporal evolution that parallels disease severity and the finding of partially reversible WMHs deserves attention and should be known by clinicians taking care of patients withRCVS.
Study on the incidence and risk factor of silent cerebrovascular disease in young adults with first-ever stroke
Hypertension and elevated homocysteine levels were 2 risk factors for silent cerebrovascular disease in young stroke patients in young patients with first-ever stroke.
Diagnostic approach, therapeutic strategies, and surgical indications in intradural thoracic disc herniation associated with CSF leak, intracranial hypotension, and CNS superficial siderosis
An overview on IDH as the cause for both CSF leak, and subsequent SIH, and CNSss is presented, and a peculiar clinical and neuroradiological scenario related to this condition is described.
Recurrent Trigeminal Neuralgia: A Case Series and a Review of the Literature
This report presents a series of two cases of recurrent trigeminal neuralgia, a peripheral neuropathy characterized by intermittent episodes of severe facial pain originating in the sensory nucleus of the trigemINAL nerve, which is primarily managed medically, although many patients may require surgical or radiotherapeutic intervention.
The prevalence of migraine in Argentina: A reappraisal
The prevalence of migraine in Argentina is higher than previously reported and evaluating the determinants of these variations might be a promising avenue of research.
Serial magnetic resonance imaging findings during severe attacks of familial hemiplegic migraine type 2: a case report
Describing of the various mutations and consequential presentations may assist neurologists in identifying cases of Hemiplegic Migraine, which may include transient changes in ADC and DWI imaging throughout the course of an attack.
No structural brain alterations in new daily persistent headache – a cross sectional VBM/SBM study
The absence of structural brain changes in patients with new daily persistent headache contribute to the recent discussion regarding structural alterations in primary headache disorders in general and does not provide evidence for grey matter changes being associated with the pathophysiology of new daily persistence headache.
Long-term outcomes of surgical management in subtypes of Chiari malformation
This study with 172 patients is a large series of old and new subtypes of Chiari malformations that includes CM-0, 1, and 1.5 subtypes, and CVD alone are an effective, useful and safe surgical procedure for CM- 0, CM-1 andCM-1.5.
