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 Despite improved medical management, the incidence of spinal pathology remains high in patients with Parkinson disease (PD). Several studies have investigated lumbar spine surgery in this population, but data regarding costs and perioperative complications for patients undergoing cervical decompression/fusion on a nationwide scale are lacking. Methods Cases of cervical spinal decompression, fusion, or exploration in years 2008–2014 were collected via the Healthcare Cost and Utilizatio...

Abstract Introduction Pseudotumor cerebri (PTC) patients exhibit clear clinical signs and symptoms of higher intracranial pressure (ICP) without ventricular enlargement or mass lesions. The clinical picture of patients with PTC can sometimes be similar to that of Chiari Malformation type I (CMI). There is some evidence that Chiari I malformation and PTC may coexist, which raises the question of whether PTC is an idiopathic disease or a complication of posterior decompression surgery—treatment of...
