Pediatric cranioplasty: Lessons from a 1940s neurosurgical procedure
. Interdisciplinary Neurosurgery: Advanced Techniques and Case Management, 1(4), 73-75.
In comparison, 71% of all patients having moderate-to-severe head injury did not need neurosurgical procedure
. This clearly highlights the fact that even mild head injury patients need observation and may need referral to a suitable neurosurgical centre, whereas majority of patients with moderate-to-severe head injury could also be managed at nearest urban and rural centres with ICU care setup.
Number of cases (N = 154) of dura mater graft-associated Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (dCJD), by year of neurosurgical procedure
and year of symptom onset--Japan, 1975-2017
The aim of this case report was to present MAC, the technique involving propofol and remifentanil combined with levobupivacaine for scalp block in neurosurgical procedure
of tumour resection in the awake patient.
The presence of variable hemodynamics such as hypotension or hypertension caused by TCR was noted during different neurosurgical procedures
, probably reflects the central and peripheral pathway of TCR [19, 20].
Two patients required further neurosurgical procedures
later: recraniotomy for tumour recurrence in a child who subsequently succumbed eight months later due to the malignant nature of the tumour; and insertion of a subcutaneous cerebrospinal fluid access device into the cystic portion of tumour two months later in another child.
It successfully performed precise neurosurgical procedures
in simulated surgeries.
We then asked about the cutting and counting of lintenes in neurosurgical procedures
. Out of the 18 centres that use lintenes in the way previously described 11 (61%) stated that they use them.
A 3-D navigational imaging system helps surgeons thread through complex brain structures during delicate neurosurgical procedures
. The system uses MRI images and works as a surgical GPS that allows doctors to determine their location in real time and in a three-dimensional space, explains pediatric neurosurgeon Edward Ahn, M.D.
Few of these disorders are effectively treatable by drugs or neurosurgical procedures
of Texas Southwestern Medical School) offers medical students, interns, residents, surgical technicians, nurses, and other staff, as well as neurosurgeons who want to educate their team, a reference for use in the visual identification of basic surgical instruments and their use in specific neurosurgical procedures
. He begins with basic principles of the operating room, including arrangements, basic staffing, and equipment, then basic instrument sets.
Another interesting aspect was the application of intraoperative MRI, currently mostly used during neurosurgical procedures
such as tumour resections and deep brain stimulator implantations.
