Abstract Background Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), functional MRI (fMRI), and intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (iMRI) permit greater visualization and more accurate pre-surgical planning. Meta-analysis of these techniques for maximizing resection, post-operative functionality and survival may further validate purported strengths of these techniques compared to standard neuronavigation. Methods A systematic search of the PubMed database was conducted in line with the PRISMA guidelines f...

Background Virtual reality (VR) simulators have become useful tools in various fields of medicine. Prominent uses of VR technologies include assessment of physician skills and presurgical planning. VR has shown effectiveness in multiple surgical specialties, yet its use in neurosurgery remains limited. Objective To examine all current literature on VR-based simulation for presurgical planning and training in cranial tumor surgeries and to assess the quality of these studies. Methods PubMed and E...

Carotid splaying, also known as the Lyre sign, is a widening of the carotid bifurcation due to the displacement of the internal carotid artery and the external carotid artery just distal to the point of divergence. This phenomenon is classically exhibited by highly vascularized carotid body tumors and, in rare cases, by cervical sympathetic chain schwannomas. Demonstration of the Lyre sign by a cervical vagal neurofibroma, however, is a unique occurrence that has not been previously documented i...

Background Cavernous hemangiomas account for 5%–13% of central nervous system vascular lesions. They are usually found intra-axially but rarely involve extra-axial structures, most commonly the middle cranial fossa. A cavernous hemangioma manifesting as a clinoid meningioma is extremely rare. Case Description A 36-year-old man presented with an asymptomatic intracranial mass found incidentally after a motor vehicle accident. Preoperative magnetic resonance imaging revealed a well-defined dural-b...

Background Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a common autoimmune and neurodegenerative disease of the central nervous system characterized by inflammatory demyelination, axonal degeneration, and neuronal loss. The exact pathogenesis of MS remains uncertain; however, studies have shown that the development of MS is influenced by genetic and environmental factors. Cerebral aneurysms (CAs) are life-threatening lesions of cerebral vessels characterized by a bulge in the intracranial arterial wall that spon...

INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to retrospectively evaluate patients treated for traumatic brain injuries (TBI) to determine how multiple organ trauma (MOT) and lung injuries sustained at the time of initial injury affect outcome. METHOD: A single institution retrospective review of all patients diagnosed with TBI at a level I trauma center from 2000-2014 was conducted. Clinical outcome was based on Glasgow Outcome Scale (GOS) at hospital discharge. Lung injury was defined as the pre...
