Acta Neurochir (2014) 156:1769–1774 Augmented reality technology has been used for intraoperative image guidance through the overlay of virtual images, from preoperative imaging studies, onto the realworld surgical field.
Neurosurg Focus 37 (3):E10, 2014 The authors conducted a study to assess the safety and efficacy of microsurgical resection of arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and determine predictors of complications.
Neurosurgery 75:205–214, 2014 The role of radiotherapy after surgery for myxopapillary ependymoma (MPE) is unclear. OBJECTIVE: To review long-term outcomes after surgery, with or without radiation, for spinal MPE.
Eur Spine J (2014) 23:1992–1999 There is a long-held concept among spine surgeons that endoscopic lumbar discectomy procedures are reserved for small-contained disc herniation; 8-year follow-up has not been reported.
Acta Neurochir (2014) 156:1761–1767 The role of indocyanine green videoangiography (ICG-VA) in the surgical resection of vascular malformations has been largely described; conversely, the utility of ICG-VA before dural opening (transdural ICG-VA) in this situation remains unclear.
Neurosurgery 75:286–294, 2014 A neurovascular flow diverter (FD), aiming at inducing embolic occlusion of cerebral aneurysms through hemodynamic changes, can produce variable mesh densities owing to its flexible mesh structure.
Neurosurgery 75:220–226, 2014 Trigeminal neuralgia is a relatively common neurosurgical pathology with multiple management options. Microvascular decompression (MVD) is nonablative and is considered the gold standard.
