Background: Several pathologies that affect the craniovertebral junction (CVJ) can be treated by means of a microsurgical transoral approach (TOA) or, alternatively, with an endoscopic endonasal approach (EEA), which is potentially able to overcome some complications associated with the former approach. In this paper, after discussing updates in the recent literature, to which we add our own surgical experience, we critically analyse these procedures with the aim of demonstrating that the TOA st...

Background: Craniovertebral junction (CVJ) instrumentation and fusion in childhood are frequently performed with either sublaminar wires or screws in lateral masses, and both are considered quite safe procedures.

The craniovertebral junction is an intricate anatomical region frequently affected by neoplastic, vascular, traumatic, congenital and degenerative pathology. Because the topography of this region is complex, direct knowledge and full mastery of craniocervical anatomy is mainly obtained through anatomical dissections performed in neuroanatomical laboratories.

Purpose: An extensive spinal epidural abscess is a rare condition and causes significant morbidity and mortality. Few authors have described this uncommon entity, which requires early diagnosis and optimal treatment to avoid devastating complications. The purpose of this study was to evaluate a minimally invasive technique for treatment of an extensive spinal epidural abscess by describing two cases. Furthermore, we conducted a review of the recent literature on the management of this rare condi...

More than 100 years after the first description by Kanavel of a transoral–transpharyngeal approach to remove a bullet impacted between the atlas and the clivus [1], the transoral approach (TOA) still represents the ‘gold standard’ for surgical treatment of a variety of conditions resulting in anterior craniocervical compression and myelopathy [2, 3]. Nevertheless, some concerns—such as the need for a temporary tracheostomy and a postoperative nasogastric tube, and the increased risk of infection...

Supported by preliminary anatomical and clinical studies exploring the feasibility and usefulness of approaching many ventral pathologies of the craniocervical junction (CCJ) using the endoscopic endonasal approach, four European centres have joined forces to accumulate and share their growing surgical experience of this advanced technique. By describing the steps that led to the development and continuous refinement of this approach to the CCJ, this article delves deeply into an analysis of the...

Background: The extreme lateral approach is a direct lateral approach which allows a good control of the entire length of the vertebral artery (VA), the jugular foramen, the lowest cranial nerves, and the jugular–sigmoid complex. Herein we try to exploit the variants of the approach and we identify indications, advantages, and disadvantages.

The far lateral approach (FLA) is a technique performed nowadays to gain access to and remove intradural lesions located ventrolaterally to the brainstem and to the craniovertebral junction (CVJ).

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to test whether there is an association of slow vasogenic wave (SVW) occurrence with positive response to external lumbar drainage (ELD) and ventriculoperitoneal shunting and to design a method for the recognition and quantification of SVWs in the intracranial pressure (ICP) signal. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We constructed SVW templates using normalized sine waves. We calculated the cross-correlation between the respective SVW template and the ICP signal. This was followed by sh...
