  • New research directions in medulloblastoma
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 21 March 2019Source: NeurochirurgieAuthor(s): J. Grill, C. Dufour, L. Guerrini-Rousseau, O. AyraultAbstractIntroductionMedulloblastoma is the most common type of pediatric malignant brain tumor where the most important amount of clinical and radiological data has been accumulated in recent years. This has led to its sophistication in the management of these patients with a clear benefit for the patients. Long-term outcome and sequelae have been described and their causes well understood such as preventive measures which can now be implemented.Material and methodsThis review paper does not attempt to make a systematic review of the literature in the field of research regarding medulloblastoma. It rather reflects more the opinion of a pediatric oncological team involved for a long time in this type of research. Therefore, a relevant literature review was carried out and selected by the senior author.ResultsMedulloblastoma is no longer a single entity but a group of at least 4 different diseases with a specific oncogenesis. In addition, biomarkers for prognosis have emerged to complement the known clinico-radiological risk factors. If this biological classification has allowed to modulate the therapeutic strategies, it has not yet brought many new drugs (except for the Sonic Hedgehog inhibitors) in the armamentarium against medulloblastomas. Consequently, some high-risk tumors remain difficult to cure. Combining data on oncogenesis and prognostic biomarkers will allow to define risk groups more specifically. New targeted therapies that are more effective and less toxic are desperately needed. Alternatively, it is also justified to study preventive measures to decrease the sequelae of the tumor and its treatments. From the therapeutic point of view, we scarcely know the biological determinants of chemosensitivity and radiosensitivity, as well as those associated with metastases which are indeed invaluable for tailored therapeutic strategies.ConclusionIf some genetic causes of medulloblastoma are known, the occurrence of the disease is largely unexplained for the others, justifying more research in this area. If genomics (and to a lesser extent epigenomics) of these neoplasms has been well studied, little is known on their proteomics and on the regulatory networks involved in the biological behavior of these tumor cells. New models are developed to test these aspects.

  • Acute idiopathic spinal subdural hematoma: What to do in an emergency'
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 8 February 2019Source: NeurochirurgieAuthor(s): C. Joubert, S. Gazzola, A. Sellier, A. DagainAbstractAcute spinal cord compression usually results from trauma, infection, or cancer. Spinal subdural hematoma is an uncommon cause of spinal cord compression that occurs after spine trauma or spinal invasive procedure, especially in context of coagulopathy. In the following reported case, an 82-year-old woman with a history of rapidly progressive paraparesis after a sudden middle back pain, with no previous trauma or coagulopathy, due to an acute spontaneous spinal subdural hematoma. In fact, the main difficulty was to determine, in an emergency situation, the right strategy to identify both the lesion and its cause to adapt therapeutics. This case not only provides an illustrative unusual condition in an emergency department but also a challenging discussion to choose the right treatment for a sudden neurological impairment. According to a literature review of the idiopathic cases of spinal subdural hematomas without coagulopathy, the clinical outcome depends on severity of neurological impairment. MRI is the main examination to perform in an emergency. Thus surgical evacuation should be performed in emergency in patients presenting with severe neurological impairment.
       
  • Synchronous cerebral arteriovenous malformation and lung adenocarcinoma
           carcinoma brain metastases: A case study and literature review
    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Neurochirurgie, Volume 65, Issue 1Author(s): J.T. Caranfa, M.T. Baldwin, C.E. Rutter, K.R. BulsaraAbstractIntroductionWhile there are numerous published cases of arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) developing in the setting of malignancy, it is extremely rare to find them concurrently associated in the brain.Clinical caseThis is the case of a 55-year-old male who presented to the emergency department complaining of headaches, memory and visual changes. Neuro-imaging revealed a right temporal parietal AVM and an adjoining hyperenhancing occipitotemporal lobe lesion with concern for a possible evolving stroke. The patient was treated with radiosurgery for the AVM. His symptoms progressed one month later, and repeat imaging suggested interval enlargement of the previously presumed stroke that was intricately associated with the AVM, in addition to two new small enhancing lesions of the left temporal lobe. Microsurgical resection of the temporal lobe mass revealed adenocarcinoma of the lung.ConclusionThis case represents a previously undocumented confluence of cranial AVM that initially masked a non-small cell lung cancer brain metastasis.
       
  • Spontaneous resolution and complete recovery of spontaneous cervical
           epidural hematoma: Report of two cases and literature review
    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Neurochirurgie, Volume 65, Issue 1Author(s): B. Zhang, J. Chen, N. Zou, L. Wang, H. Wang, J. Jiang, D. Chen, X. LuAbstractObjectiveTo present the natural course and treatment modalities of spontaneous cervical epidural hematoma (SCEH), by reporting two rare cases with spontaneous resolution in both clinical and radiologic findings without surgery.Material and methodsOne patient presenting with acute right side hemiparesis and another showing pure cervical radiculopathy were diagnosed with SCEH on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Both were both treated non-operatively. We also conducted a literature review of 19 cases of spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma (SSEH).ResultsThese two patients achieved complete resolution in terms of both neurologic function and radiologic findings within 21 days after onset. In the literature review, 63.2% of cases experienced neurologic improvement in the first 24 h, 78.9% achieved complete neurologic recovery within 1 month, and radiological images showed complete resolution of hematoma in the first month for 73.7% of patients.ConclusionsAtypical cervical SSEH can mimic cerebral stroke or a ruptured cervical disc. A high index of clinical suspicion followed by MRI examination is critical for diagnosis. Prompt surgical decompression and evacuation of the hematoma is generally regarded as first-line treatment. However, for patients without or with only slight neurologic symptoms, or showing early and sustained neurologic improvement, non-surgical therapy with close observation is a viable alternative. Both neurologic and radiologic resolution can be expected within the first month following onset in most cases of spontaneous resolution of SSEH.
       
  • FIVHeMA: Intraventricular fibrinolysis versus external ventricular
           drainage alone in aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage: A randomized
           controlled trial
    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Neurochirurgie, Volume 65, Issue 1Author(s): T. Gaberel, C. Gakuba, F. Fournel, E. Le Blanc, C. Gaillard, L. Peyro-Saint-Paul, F. Chaillot, P. Tanguy, J.-J. Parienti, E. EmeryAbstractIntroductionAneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a devastating form of stroke, which often causes acute hydrocephalus requiring the insertion of an external ventricular drain (EVD). A major complication of aneurysmal SAH is delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI). As DCI is linked to the presence of blood within the subarachnoid space, it has been hypothesized that removing this blood may decrease the risk of DCI. This could be achieved by injecting a fibrinolytic agent through the EVD, a strategy called intraventricular fibrinolysis (IVF). Here, we propose to conduct a phase III trial to directly evaluate the impact of IVF after aneurysmal SAH.Materials and methodsWe will perform an open-label randomized controlled trial comparing the standard of care, i.e. EVD alone, to the experimental treatment, i.e. IVF. We plan to include 440 patients to be able to show a 10% increase in the rate of good functional outcomes in the EVD + IVF group compared to the EVD alone group (α = 0.05 and β = 0.8). To obtain such sample, a multicenter trial is required, and to date 17 research sites in France have agreed to participate.PerspectiveFIVHeMA would be the first phase III trial evaluating the relevance of IVF in aneurysmal SAH. If IVF is shown to be beneficial, then a new therapeutic tool will be available to improve the outcomes of aneurysmal SAH patients.

  • Subdural hematoma and electroconvulsive therapy: A case report and review

    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Neurochirurgie, Volume 65, Issue 1Author(s): C. Dauleac, F. Vinckier, P. BourdillonAbstractBackground and case presentationElectroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is a common therapeutic procedure in psychiatry associated with a low rate of complications. We report a rare case of subdural hematoma (SDH) associated with ECT. Clinical presentation: a 64 year old woman, with a medical history of persistent depression which required ECT six years previously, underwent ECT following a new acute episode. After four ECT sessions, a left hemiparesis occurred. Brain CT scan revealed a right SDH. The patient underwent surgery and fully recovered three months after the drainage of the hematoma. We conducted a review of all cases in which SDH was associated to ECT.ConclusionEarly stage brain imaging is indispensable prior to starting ECT. Moreover, a previous medical history of SDH may not be a contraindication to ECT. In these situations, a clinical and radiological follow-up by both the psychiatrist and the neurosurgeon during all the ECT sessions is highly recommended.
       
  • Medulloblastomas in adolescents and adults – Can the pediatric
           experience be extrapolated'
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 13 December 2018Source: NeurochirurgieAuthor(s): D. Frappaz, C. Faure-Conter, A. Bonneville Levard, M. Barritault, D. Meyronet, M.-P. SunyachAbstractAdult medulloblastomas are orphan diseases that differ from their pediatric counterpart. Most are classified as classic or desmoplastic and fall in the SHH subgroup, mainly with loss-of-function mutations in PTCH1 and some by TP53-mutation due to underlying germline mutation. Activation of the WNT pathway is sporadic, although underlying Turcot syndrome may be present. One-third of tumors are issued from group 4. Most adult studies are small non-randomized retrospective heterogeneous studies performed at a single center with short follow-up. Standard craniospinal irradiation followed by maintenance chemotherapy (CCNU, cisplatin-vincristine) results in a 4-year event-free survival (EFS) and overall survival (OS) of 68% and 89% respectively in standard-risk adults, and in a 4-year EFS and OS of 50% and 90%, respectively in high-risk adults. Several pooled analyses point out the potential role of chemotherapy in adults. The feasibility of pediatric protocols in adults is sometimes hampered because of blood and peripheral nerve toxicity. In the near future, subgroups of medulloblastomas may be treated by personalized therapies. With prolonged follow-up, adults fare worse. Long-term sequelae and second line treatment are not well defined in adults. Prospective studies are ongoing to define optimal first-line and relapse treatments.

           hemorrhage
    • Abstract: Publication date: December 2018Source: Neurochirurgie, Volume 64, Issue 6Author(s): F. Proust, S. Bracard, J.-P. Lejeune, L. Thines, X. Leclerc, G. Penchet, J. Bergé, X.

LalloucheAbstractBackgroundCurrent aging of the population with good physiological status and the increasing incidence of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) in elderly patients has enhanced the benefit of treatment in terms of independence and long-term quality of life (QoL).MethodsFrom November 1, 2008 to October 30, 2012, 351 patients aged 70 years or older with aneurysmal SAH underwent adapted treatment: endovascular coiling (EV) for 228 (65%) patients, microsurgical clipping (MS) for 75 (29.3%) or conservative treatment for 48 (13.7%). Forty-one of these were randomized to EV (n = 20) or to MS (n = 21). The objectives were to determine the proportion of patients with modified Rankin Scale score ≤ 2 (independence) at 1 year, and, secondarily, to compare cognitive function on the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE), autonomy on the Activities of Daily Living Index (ADLI) and Instrumental Activities of Daily Living scale (IADL), and QoL, in the prospective and randomized arms, at 1 year.ResultsAt 1 year, with 1 loss to follow-up in the EV arm, 11 patients (55%) were independent after EV occlusion and 8 (38.1%) after MS exclusion, without significant difference (P = 0.29). Mortality was higher after MS during the first 2 postoperative months, and thereafter the difference between MS and EV ceased to be significant. Cognitive function and autonomy scores were similar in both arms.ConclusionIn elderly patients treated for aneurysmal SAH, approximately 50% were independent at 1 year, with conserved cognition and autonomy. EV and MS are valid procedures in this population, with similar results at 1 year in terms of independence, cognition, autonomy, and QoL.

           report
    • Abstract: Publication date: December 2018Source: Neurochirurgie, Volume 64, Issue 6Author(s): R. Kouadria, A. Si Ali, Y. Aidouni, W. Maaz, C. MhamdiAbstractIntroductionIntramedullary spinal cord lipomas (IMSCL) are a rare entity, accounting for less than 1% of spinal tumors. Most cases are associated with lumbosacral dysraphism and occur predominantly in the pediatric population.Material and methodWe report the case of an isolated bipolar lipoma, which was very large in the cervicodorsal region and small in the conus medularis. The patient was a 9-years-old male who had muscle weakness for approximately 6 months. MRI showed a hyperintense lesion on T1, which was less intense on T2, without contrast enhancement at the cervicodorsal location and the conus medularis. At his admission, the patient experienced severe decompensation with flaccid tetraplegia and abdominal respiration. He immediately underwent decompression and partial resection of the cervical lesion. The anatomical pathology evaluation confirmed the diagnosis of a lipoma.Discussion/conclusionThe possibility of quality resection of intramedullary spinal cord lipomas is controversial due to the lack of a cleavage plane with the anterior tracts. Any attempt at total resection would expose the patient to the risk of neurological worsening which is often irreversible. In our case, the surgical indication was self-imposed, the main objective of which was decompression.
       
  • A case of Erdheim-Chester disease with spinal cord compression and
           sphenoid sinus involvement
    • Abstract: Publication date: December 2018Source: Neurochirurgie, Volume 64, Issue 6Author(s): K. Bunaux, H. Sevestre, J.-F. Emile, C. Capel, L. Chenin, J. PeltierAbstractErdheim-Chester disease is a rare form of non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis. It is an inflammatory disorder associated with BRAF V600E mutation in 50% of cases. This multisystem disease is rarely associated with spinal involvement. Neurological involvement is an independent predictive factor of poor prognosis. The diagnosis is histopathological based on CD68-positive and CD1A-negative histiocytes. Treatment with interferon-alpha is an independent predictor of survival in Erdheim-Chester disease and vemurafenib has also been shown to be effective for BRAF V600E mutation. We report a clinical case of a 51-year-old patient with multiple and rare locations of Erdheim-Chester disease, particularly at the sphenoid sinus.
       
  • Osteocutaneous free transfer of vascularized fibula in cervico-thoracic
           spinal reconstruction with filling of an esophageal fistula: A case report
           
    • Abstract: Publication date: December 2018Source: Neurochirurgie, Volume 64, Issue 6Author(s): M. Abellan Lopez, A. Iniesta, G. Brioude, K. Farah, S. FuentesAbstractThe case under review is a 60-year-old patient with a vertebral plasmocytoma treated by cervico-thoracic fusion 2 years previously. He presented a thoracic spinal septic non-union complicated by esophagospinal fistula. We performed vascularized fibula transplant with cutaneous pad to fill the esophageal fistula. Control CT at day 5 confirmed vascular anastomosis permeability and bone transplant position. Osseointegration was achieved at 18 months postoperatively. The patient was alive 3 years after the last procedure (5 years after tumorectomy). A systematic review of the literature on spinal reconstruction by vascularized fibula transplant showed the diversity of surgical techniques available. In view of the multiplicity of possible organ and soft tissue defects involving the spine, reminders are provided of the different approaches and recipient vessels in this type of reconstruction depending on location.

  • Biopsying a spinal cord lesion: A diagnostic dilemma. Case report and
           review of literature
    • Abstract: Publication date: December 2018Source: Neurochirurgie, Volume 64, Issue 6Author(s): L. Dormegny, S. Chibbaro, M. Ganau, MDN. Santin, L. Kremer, F. ProustAbstractSpinal cord biopsy is a difficult procedure fraught with the risk of false-negative results or even misdiagnosis in up to 30% of cases. Differential diagnoses of spinal cord lesions include a wide range of inflammatory, infectious and neoplastic diseases. Given the importance of correctly managing these pathologies, it is crucial to avoid delays in making the correct diagnosis in order to improve the patient's outcome. We present here the case of a 21-year-old male with rapidly progressing sphincter and lower limb motor dysfunctions up to complete paraplegia with evidence of thoracic spinal cord lesion on magnetic resonance imaging. None of the blood and cerebrospinal fluid tests pointed to a diagnosis, while a first spinal cord biopsy revealed an inflammatory necrotic process. After several weeks of empirical treatments and clinical stability, the patient started having focal structural seizures that became generalized with local progression of the lesion and diffuse leptomeningeal spread on magnetic resonance imaging. A second spinal cord biopsy found a grade IV glioblastoma with H3 K27M histone mutation. Unfortunately the patient passed away before any treatment could be initiated. In this report, the authors analyze the difficulty of making the rapid, correct diagnosis of a highly malignant intrinsic spinal cord lesion, discussing also possible strategies to avoid diagnostic delays and to improve the outcome of these difficult patients.
       
  • Cerebrospinal fluid leakage after posterior fossa surgery may impair brain
           metabolite clearance
    • Abstract: Publication date: December 2018Source: Neurochirurgie, Volume 64, Issue 6Author(s): R. Goulay, R. Aron Badin, J. Flament, E. Emery, P. Hantraye, D. Vivien, T. GaberelAbstractThe discovery of the important role of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) drainage of cerebral metabolite waste, known as the glymphatic system, has changed our view of brain waste clearance. We recently performed experiments to evaluate the glymphatic system in non-human primates (NHP). Here, we report the case of an NHP with iatrogenic CSF leakage. In this animal, solute transport through the brain, assessed by gadolinium injection in the CSF, was severely impaired by iatrogenic pseudomeningocele. This observation raises an important question: does brain surgery, and particularly posterior fossa surgery, lead to chronic impairment of parenchymal CSF circulation and solute transport'
       
  • Imaging features of medulloblastoma: Conventional imaging,
           diffusion-weighted imaging, perfusion-weighted imaging, and spectroscopy:
           From general features to subtypes and characteristics
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 28 August 2018Source: NeurochirurgieAuthor(s): V. Dangouloff-Ros, P. Varlet, R. Levy, K. Beccaria, S. Puget, C. Dufour, N. BoddaertAbstractMedulloblastoma is a frequent high-grade neoplasm among pediatric brain tumours. Its classical imaging features are a midline tumour growing into the fourth ventricle, hyperdense on CT-scan, displaying a hypersignal when using diffusion-weighted imaging, with a variable contrast enhancement. Nevertheless, atypical imaging features have been widely reported, varying according to the age of the patient, and histopathological subtype. In this study, we review the classical and atypical imaging features of medulloblastomas, with emphasis on advanced MRI techniques, histopathological and molecular subtypes and characteristics, and follow-up modalities.
       
  • Late effects of craniospinal irradiation for medulloblastomas in
           paediatric patients
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 24 August 2018Source: NeurochirurgieAuthor(s): V. Bernier, O. KleinAbstractAlong with surgery, radiation therapy (RT) remains an essential option to cure patients suffering from medulloblastoma. However, its long-term adverse effects, particularly due to craniospinal irradiation (CSI), which is necessary to eradicate microscopic spread, are a limiting factor. The most frequent sequelae involve neurocognitive and endocrine impairment, which occurs in nearly all patients. Recent progress achieved through genetic and molecular biology offers the possibility to better stratify patients according to risk factors such as age, post-resection tumour residue and metastasis. Thus, new therapeutic studies assess the possibility to reduce radiation dose and/or radiation field size for patients with the most favourable prognosis. New radiotherapy techniques are also used such as Intensity-Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT), tomotherapy and proton therapy, which aim at reducing the dose delivered to normal tissue. Conventional photon-based therapy has a relatively high exit dose in contrast with proton therapy which causes less damage to surrounding healthy tissue. It is noteworthy that each technique requires a long follow-up in order to prove that late effects could be reduced without compromising survival rates. Dosimetric comparison theoretically suggests that proton therapy may be the superior method for CSI in terms of late effects, but further research is needed to firmly establish this. Whatever the technique used, the great complexity of CSI requires discipline and expertise along with an external quality control online before the first RT session.

  • Neuropsychological consequences of childhood medulloblastoma and possible
           interventions: A review
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 30 April 2018Source: NeurochirurgieAuthor(s): E. Doger de Spéville, V. Kieffer, C. Dufour, J. Grill, M. Noulhiane, L. Hertz-Pannier, M. ChevignardAbstractBackgroundChildren who have been treated for a medulloblastoma often suffer long-term cognitive impairments that often negatively affect their academic performance and quality of life. In this article, we will review the neuropsychological consequences of childhood medulloblastoma and discuss the risk factors known to influence the presence and severity of these cognitive impairments and possible interventions to improve their quality of life.MethodsThis narrative review was based on electronic searches of PubMed to identify all relevant studies.ResultsAlthough many types of cognitive impairments often emerge during a child's subsequent development, the core cognitive domains that are most often affected in children treated for a medulloblastoma are processing speed, attention and working memory. The emergence and magnitude of these deficits varies greatly among patients. They are influenced by demographic (age at diagnosis, parental education), medical and treatment-related factors (perioperative complications, including posterior fossa syndrome, radiation therapy dose, etc.), and the quality of interventions such as school adaptations provided to the child or rehabilitation programs that focus on cognitive skills, behavior and psychosocial functioning.ConclusionThese patients require specialized and coordinated multidisciplinary rehabilitation follow-up that provides timely and adapted assessments and culminates in personalized intervention goals being set with the patient and the family. Follow-up should be continued until referral to adult services.
