Virtual reality training in neurosurgery: Review of current status and future applications
(Medknow Publications, 2011-04-28)
Background : Over years, surgical training is changing and years of tradition are being challenged by legal and ethical concerns for patient safety, work hour restrictions, and the cost of operating room time. Surgical ...
Arterial Recanalization Benefits Even Neurologically Improving Stroke Patients After Intravenous tPA
(World Neurosurgery, 2013-12-21)
The Bihemispheric Posterior Interior Cerebellar Artery: Anatomic Variations and Clinical Relevance in 11 Cases.
(BMJ Publishing Group, 2012-11)
PURPOSE: Although the anatomic course of the posterior interior cerebellar artery (PICA) is variable, it is thought to be very rare for the artery to cross midline, with an estimated incidence of 0.1%. Bihemispheric PICA ...
Role of Cranial and Spinal Virtual and Augmented Reality Simulation Using Immersive Touch Modules in Neurosurgical Training
(Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2013-01)
Recent studies have shown that mental script based rehearsal and simulation based training does improve the transfer of surgical skills in various medical disciplines. Despite significant advances in technology and ...
Improving ventriculostomy management: risk and cost reduction through a multi-disciplinary approach
Object. Infection is a life-threatening complication of ventriculostomies. The purpose of this quality improvement project was to develop a cost-effective, evidence-based intervention to reduce ventriculostomy-associated ...
Flow Replacement Bypass for Aneurysms: Decision-Making Using Intraoperative Blood Flow Measurement
(Springer Wien, 2010-06)
Purpose: There is much debate regarding the optimal strategy for extracranial-intracranial (EC-IC) bypass for complex aneurysms. We introduce the concept of a flow replacement bypass which aims to compensate for loss of ...
Detection of Intracranial In-Stent Restenosis Using Quantitative Magnetic Resonance Angiography
(American Heart Association, 2010-10)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: In-stent restenosis (ISR) after angioplasty/stenting for intracranial stenosis has been reported in up to 25% to 30% of patients. Detection and monitoring of ISR relies primarily on serial catheter ...
Endovascular Approach and Technique for Treatment of TransverseSigmoid Dural Arteriovenous Fistula with Cortical Reflux: The Importance of Venous Sinus Sacrifice
(BMJ Publishing Group, 2012-10)
Introduction: Treatment of dural arteriovenous fistula involving the transverse‐igmoid region with cortical reflux is complex; treatment options may require s sacrifice of the fistulous segment of sinus. Methods: We ...
Quantitative Magnetic Resonance Venography is Correlated With Intravenous Pressures Before and After Venous Sinus Stenting: Implications for Treatment and Monitoring.
(Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2015-08)
BACKGROUND: Endovascular stenting is an effective treatment for patients with clinically significant cerebral venous sinus stenosis. Traditionally, stenting is indicated in elevated intravenous pressures on conventional ...
Combined preoperative onyx embolization and protective internal carotid artery covered stent placement for treatment of glomus vagale tumor: review of literature and illustrative case
(Maney Publishing, 2012-07)
Objective: Surgical resection of complex glomus vagale tumors can be complicated by extensive blood loss and might require surgical sacrifice of an encased internal carotid artery. Methods: A young patient presented with ...
