Pineal region tumors are extremely deep-seated and surgically challenging. The exposure and visualization obtained by microscopic surgery are relatively limiting. The application of high-definition endoscopes has recently provided neurosurgeons with a much more magnified and clearer view of the anatomy in the pineal region. The present study was performed to compare endoscopic-assisted surgery (ES) with microsurgery (MS) for pineal region tumors. We retrospectively analyzed patients admitted to ...

Primary intracranial gliosarcoma is a rare malignant brain tumour, and the most effective treatment for gliosarcoma remains unclear. This study aimed to identify risk factors for progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) in these cases. This retrospective single-centre study evaluated 103 patients (median age, 51 years; 67 men [65%]) with primary intracranial gliosarcoma between 2006 and 2017. Treatments included surgery (GTR, 63 patients; STR, 39 patients; biopsy, 1 patient), ra...

The main purpose of surgery for tuberculum sellae meningioma (TSM) is the improvement and/or stabilization of patients’ visual function. Options for the side of lateral approaches usually were restricted for nondominant right-sided craniotomy or to the side of impaired vision (ipsilateral approaches). Although the safety and effectiveness of ipsilateral transcranial approach was proved, there are some doubts and discussions about the contralateral craniotomy. We retrospectively analyzed the seri...

Given the median survival of 15 months after diagnosis, novel treatment strategies are needed for glioblastoma. Beta-blockers have been demonstrated to inhibit angiogenesis and tumor cell proliferation in various cancer types. The aim of this study was to systematically review the evidence on the effect of beta-blockers on glioma growth. A systematic literature search was performed in the PubMed, Embase, Google Scholar, Web of Science, and Cochrane Central to identify all relevant studies. Precl...

Management options for newly diagnosed vestibular schwannoma (VS) include observation, surgery, or radiation. There are no randomized trials to guide management of patients with VS. This article is a short review of the role of stereotactic radiosurgery in management of newly diagnosed VS.

To evaluate if the unruptured intracranial aneurysm treatment score (UIATS) is a sensitive tool to detect aneurysms at risk of rupture, we conducted an a posteriori retrospective study on ruptured intracranial aneurysms. We performed a retrospective analysis of adult patients admitted to our center from January 2010 to April 2016 with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. The UIATS was applied to all ruptured aneurysms. Patients for whom the UIATS recommended treatment were labeled as "true positi...

While open surgery has been the primary surgical approach for adult degenerative scoliosis, minimally invasive surgery (MIS) represents an alternative option and appears to be associated with reduced morbidity. Given the lack of consensus, we aimed to conduct a systematic review on available literature comparing MIS versus open surgery for adult degenerative scoliosis. PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane databases were searched through December 16, 2019, for studies that compared both MIS and open surg...

Considering quality of life (QOL) after stroke, car driving is one of the most important abilities for returning to the community. In this study, directed attention and sustained attention, which are thought to be crucial for driving, were examined. Identification of specific brain structure abnormalities associated with post-stroke cognitive dysfunction related to driving ability would help in determining fitness for car driving after stroke. Magnetic resonance imaging was performed in 57 post-...

The supracerebellar infratentorial approach (SCITA) is a standard approach used in a neurosurgical practice. It carries some risk of associated complications including cerebellar venous infarction with possible serious sequelae. The objective of this study is to address the incidence of cerebellar venous infarction in SCITA. A search through the currently available literature was performed in September 2019 from the year 2000 until September 2019 dealing with ‘supracerebellar infratentorial appr...

Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is an old blood collection between the cortical surface and the dura. Recurrence of CSDH after surgical evacuation occurs in up to a quarter of patients. The association between patient premorbid status and the rate of recurrence is not well known, and some previous results are contradictory. We aim to determine the impact of patient comorbidities in the risk of recurrence after surgical evacuation of CSDH. Retrospective data of a single institution’s surgically ...
