77 Efficacy of multiple intraarterial papaverine infusions for improvement in cerebral circulation time in patients with recurrent cerebral vasospasmObject. Cerebral vasospasm that is caused by aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage and that is refractory to maximal medical management can be treated with selective intraarterial papaverine infusions. The effects of single papaverine treatments on cerebral circulation time are well known. The purpose ...Cerebral vasospasm; Intraarterial papaverine infusions2004
78 Embolization of sacral tumorsThe management of sacral tumors is challenging because of difficulties in accessing the lesion, the high rate of local recurrence, extensive vascularity causing significant intraoperative blood loss, resistance to radiation therapy, and risk of malignant transformation. Although surgery is the main ...Sacral tumor2003
79 Emergent aneurysm clipping without angiography in the moribund patient with intracerebral hemorrhage: the use of infusion computed tomography scansTHE AUTHORS REPORT their experience with 25 patients (mean age, 44.3 ± 12.1 years) with an intracerebral hematoma (ICH) from a ruptured aneurysm who were emergently operated on without angiography. Instead, preoperative high-resolution infusion computed tomography (CT) scans were used to identify...Ruptured aneurysms; Computed tomography; Infusion computed tomography; Aneurysm clipping1993
80 Endoscopic-assisted craniofacial resection of esthesioneuroblastoma: minimizing facial incisionsThe surgical management of esthesioneuroblastomas has traditionally been craniofacial resection, which combines a bifrontal craniotomy with a transfacial approach. The latter usually involves a disfiguring facial incision, mid-facial degloving, lateral rhinotomy, and/or extensive facial osteotomies...Esthesioneuroblastoma; Craniofacial resection; Endoscope; Craniofacial surgery; Minimally invasive2003
81 Enhanced protein kinase C activity correlates with the growth rate of malignant gliomas in vitroDirect measurement of protein kinase C (PKC) activity in vitro revealed a significant increase in the activity of the enzyme in all human malignant glioma lines examined and the rat C6 tumor in comparison with control nonneoplastic astrocyte and mixed glial cultures. The total and particulate PKC ac...Brain neoplasms; Flow cytometry; Glioma; Phorbol ester; Protein kinase C1991
82 Evaluation of the necessity of postoperative imaging after craniosynostosis surgeryObject. Childhood radiation exposure increases the lifetime risk of cancer from an estimated 0.07 to 0.35%. Neurological evaluation of patients after cranial vault reconstruction for synostosis repair is often complicated by pain medication, sedation, intubation, swelling, and dressings; therefore c...Computed tomography; Cranial vault reconstruction; Pediatric neurosurgery; Radiation dose; Postoperative imaging2007
83 Expanding neurosurgeryThe history of medicine is replete with innovations in neurosurgery that have spurred further developments across the medical spectrum.

85 Extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma presenting as a pituitary massExtranodal NK/T-cell lymphomas are uncommon neoplasms that are highly aggressive and show a strong association with Epstein-Barr virus. They most commonly affect the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses; manifestation as a primary pituitary tumor has never been described. The authors report a case of ...2007-09
86 False-negative magnetic resonance angiography with extracranial internal carotid artery stenosis: a report of two cases and review of the literatureMagnetic resonance angiography (MRA) is increasingly used as a noninvasive means to assess internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis. When used alone, however, MRA may not be sufficiently accurate in certain settings to determine whether ICA disease meets surgical criteria. Although MRA has been recogn...Internal carotid artery stenosis; Magnetic resonance angiography2005
87 Far Lateral Transcondylar Approach for Resection of Neurenteric Cysts of the Cervicomedullary Junction (Far-lateral transcondylar approach: surgical technique and its application in neurenteric cysts of the cervicomedullary junction. Report of two cases.)Neurenteric cysts are rare benign lesions of the central nervous system that are lined by endodermal cell-derived epithelium. Although they occur mostly in the spine, they can occur intracranially, most often in the posterior fossa. Neurenteric cysts that are located in the anterior cervicomedullary...Cervical Vertebrae; Medulla Oblongata; Neural Tube Defects; Neurosurgical Procedure2005-08-15
88 Far lateral transcondylar transtubercular approach to lesions of the ventral foramen magnum and craniovertebral junctionThe craniovertebral junction, which consists of the lower one third of the clivus, the foramen magnum, and the CI and C2 vertebrae, is a common site for neoplastic, vascular, congenital, and degenerative lesions of the cranial base. The far lateral transcondylar transtubercular approach (commonlyr...Far-lateral; Transcondylar; Transtubercular; Ventral foramen magnum; Craniovertebral junction2007
89 Far-lateral transcondylar approach: surgical technique and its application in neurenteric cysts of the cervicomedullary junctionNeurenteric cysts are rare benign lesions of the central nervous system that are lined by endodermal cell-derived epithelium. Although they occur mostly in the spine, they can occur intracranially, most often in the posterior fossa. Neurenteric cysts that are located in the anterior cervicomedullary...2005
90 Fenestration of the oculomotor nerve by a duplicated posterior cerebral artery and aneurysmThe authors report a case of a posterior cerebral artery aneurysm arising from an aberrant arterial branch that was found to be splitting the oculomotor nerve. This 63-year-old man presented with headaches, and CT imaging revealed subarachnoid hemorrhage primarily within the basilar cisterns. Formal...2009-01-01
91 Frameless stereotactic image-guided C1-C2 transarticular screw fixation for atlantoaxial instability: review of 20 patientsAtlantoaxial instability can result from trauma, rheumatoid arthritis, congenital malformation, or tumor invasion. The goal of treatment is stabilization of the C1-C2 complex to prevent neurologic and neurovascular compromise. First described in 1987 by Magerl and Seemann, C1-C2 transarticular screw...Transarticular screws; Atlantoaxial instability; Frameless stereotaxy; Cervical spine; Surgical navigation; Trajectory planning2005
92 The frontotemporal (Pterional) approach: an historical perspectiveThe frontotemporal, so-called "pterional" approach has evolved with the contribution of many neurosurgeons over the past century. It has stood the test of time and been the most commonly used transcranial approach in neurosurgery. In its current form, drilling the sphenoid wing as far down as the su...2012-01-01

97 Glioma invasionA characteristic pathological feature of malignant glioma cells is their ability to extensively invade surrounding brain parenchyma-particularly along white matter tracts- thus rendering focal therapies incapable of controlling tumor growth and resulting in inevitable recurrence. In this regard, ...2001
98 Guideline update for the performance of fusion procedures for degenerative disease of the lumbar spine. Part 10: Lumbar fusion for stenosis without spondylolisthesisLumbar stenosis is one of the more common radiographic manifestations of the aging process, leading to narrowing of the spinal canal and foramen. When stenosis is clinically relevant, patients often describe activity-related low-back or lower-extremity pain, known as neurogenic claudication. For tho...2014-01-01
99 Guideline update for the performance of fusion procedures for degenerative disease of the lumbar spine. Part 11: Interbody techniques for lumbar fusionInterbody fusion techniques have been promoted as an adjunct to lumbar fusion procedures in an effort to enhance fusion rates and potentially improve clinical outcome. The medical evidence continues to suggest that interbody techniques are associated with higher fusion rates compared with posterolat...2014-01-01
100 Guideline update for the performance of fusion procedures for degenerative disease of the lumbar spine. Part 12: Pedicle screw fixation as an adjunct to posterolateral fusionThe utilization of pedicle screw fixation as an adjunct to posterolateral lumbar fusion (PLF) has become routine, but demonstration of a definitive benefit remains problematic.
