Risks and benefits of CT angiography in spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage.
We retrospectively assessed 323 consecutive patients with spontaneous ICHs admitted to our hospital between April 2009 and March 2012 and who underwent CTA on admission. In 80 patients (24.7 %), spot signs were demonstrated on CTA source images. Multivariate analysis revealed two independent factors...
Intraoperative fabrication of patient-specific moulded implants for skull reconstruction: single-centre experience of 28 cases.
We performed both subjective and objective assessments. This retrospective analysis was performed using a cohort of 28 patients who received PMMA implants between February 2009 and March 2012. The cosmetic and functional results were assessed using a patient questionnaire. Furthermore an objective v...
The use of vancomycin powder reduces surgical reoperation in posterior instrumented and noninstrumented spinal surgery.
Surgical site infections can complicate posterior spine surgery. Multiple hospital admissions may be required to adequately treat a surgical site infection, which is associated with increased costs and lower patient satisfaction. The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of prophylact...
Non-assisted versus neuro-navigated and XperCT-guided external ventricular catheter placement: a comparative cadaver study.
Accurate placement of an external ventricular drain (EVD) for the treatment of hydrocephalus is of paramount importance for its functionality and in order to minimize morbidity and complications. The aim of this study was to compare two different drain insertion assistance tools with the traditional...
Cognitive improvement after cranioplasty: a possible volume transmission-related effect.
Presurgical planning of feeder resection with realistic three-dimensional virtual operation field in patient with cerebellopontine angle men...
To devascularize meningiomas, the precise location of tumor attachment must be known. However, when a cerebellopontine angle (CPA) meningioma is in contact with many surrounding structures, it can be difficult to distinguish the most vascularized attachment (MVA) from other contact surfaces. To vali...
