  • The predictive value of T-tau and AB1-42 levels in idiopathic normal
           pressure hydrocephalus

      Abstract: Background Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (INPH) has no reliable biomarker to assist in the selection of patients who could benefit from ventriculo-peritoneal (VP) shunt insertion. The neurodegenerative markers T-tau and Aβ1-42 have been found to successfully differentiate between Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and INPH and therefore are candidate biomarkers for prognosis and shunt response in INPH. The aim of this study was to test the predictive value of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) T-tau and Aβ1-42 for shunt responsiveness. In particular, we pay attention to the subset of INPH patients with raised T-tau, who are often expected to be poor surgical candidates. Methods Single-centre retrospective analysis of probable INPH patients with CSF samples collected from 2006 to 2016. Index test: CSF levels of T-tau and Aβ1-42. Reference standard: postoperative outcome. ROC analysis assessed the predictive value. Results A total of 144 CSF samples from INPH patients were analysed. Lumbar T-tau was a good predictor of post-operative mobility (AUROC 0.80). The majority of patients with a co-existing neurodegenerative disease responded well, including those with high T-tau levels. Conclusion INPH patients tended to exhibit low levels of CSF T-tau, and this can be a good predictor outcome. However levels are highly variable between individuals. Raised T-tau and being shunt-responsive are not mutually exclusive, and such patients ought not necessarily be excluded from having a VP shunt. A combined panel of markers may be a more specific method for aiding selection of patients for VP shunt insertion. This is the most comprehensive presentation of CSF samples from INPH patients to date, thus providing further reference values to the current literature.

           Meckel’s cave: case report, management strategy and review of the
           literature
    • Authors: Mark G. Bigder; Adel Helmi; Anthony M. Kaufmann
      Pages: 2309 - 2312
      Abstract: We describe a rare case and novel management strategy of painful trigeminal neuropathy caused by an arachnoid cyst confined to Meckel’s cave. A 57-year-old female presented with several years of progressive trigeminal pain and signs of trigeminal deafferentation, including sensory loss, corneal anesthesia and mastication muscle atrophy. Medical treatment with carbamazepine provided partial and temporary pain control. Surgical treatment was eventually performed by aspiration of the arachnoid cyst through the foramen ovale using a percutaneous approach. The patient experienced relief of pain and improvement of numbness and muscle strength. To our knowledge, this is the first case description of a percutaneous drainage of a Meckel’s cave arachnoid cyst.

  • Endoscopic treatment of middle fossa arachnoid cysts
    • Authors: Waleed A. Azab; Mohamed Almanabri; Waleed Yosef
      Pages: 2313 - 2317
      Abstract: Background Endoscopic treatment of middle fossa arachnoid cysts is an alternative option to microsurgical fenestration and shunting procedures. The procedure is minimally invasive and obviates the morbidity of craniotomy and shunting. Methods Operative charts and videos of patients undergoing endoscopic fenestration of middle fossa arachnoid cysts were retrieved from the senior author’s database of endoscopic procedures and reviewed. Description of the surgical techniques was then formulated. Conclusions Endoscopic fenestration of middle fossa arachnoid cysts entails communicating the cyst cavity to the basal cisterns via multiple fenestrations that should be made as large as possible with care to avoid injury of the juxtaposed neurovascular structures.

  • Disturbance of CT perfusion within 24 h after onset is associated with
           WFNS grade but not development of DCI in patients with aneurysmal SAH
    • Authors: Yuichi Takahashi; Atsushi Sasahara; Kei Yamazaki; Mayuko Inazuka; Hidetoshi Kasuya
      Pages: 2319 - 2324
      Abstract: Background Delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) is a serious complication following aneurysmal SAH (aSAH) and remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. We investigated whether data from CT perfusion (CTP) within 24 h after onset are associated with DCI and its outcome. Methods We retrospectively examined plain CT, CTP, and CT angiography (CTA) of aSAH patients on arrival. We measured the average mean transit time (aMTT) and compared it with several clinical factors, such as the age, WFNS grade, Fisher group, delayed cerebral infarction, cerebral vasospasm, and modified Rankin scale (mRS), at 1 month. Regions of interest (ROIs) were quantitatively determined in cortical and two basal ganglia areas. Results Delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) developed in 11 patients and cerebral vasospasm in 28 patients out of a total of 86 aSAH patients scanned within 24 h after onset. The average MTT was correlated with the WFNS grade (p = 0.000), but not mRS (p = 0.128), age (p = 0.759), DCI (p = 0.669), or cerebral vasospasm (p = 0.306). On the other hand, DCI was associated with the Fisher group (p = 0.0056), mRS (p = 0.0052), and cerebral vasospasm (p = 0.000). Moreover, there were no significant differences in the average MTT within 24 h after onset between territories with and without DCI, or between patients with and without DCI. Conclusions The current findings suggest that disturbance of CT perfusion soon after the onset is associated with the WFNS grade but not with the development of DCI. Delayed cerebral ischemia may be solely caused by cerebral vasospasm due to a clot in the cistern, but not associated with early brain injury.

  • Relationship between intracranial aneurysms and the severity of autosomal
           dominant polycystic kidney disease
    • Authors: Hiroki Yoshida; Eiji Higashihara; Keisuke Maruyama; Kikuo Nutahara; Toshiaki Nitatori; Isao Miyazaki; Yoshiaki Shiokawa
      Pages: 2325 - 2330
      Abstract: Background Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is a hereditary kidney disease characterized by the progressive enlargement of innumerable renal cysts. Although the association of intracranial aneurysms (ICANs) with ADPKD is well known, the relationship between the ICAN and the disease severity including total kidney volume (TKV) and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) is poorly understood. Methods We screened 265 patients with ADPKD (mean age, 48.8 years; range, 14.9–88.3 years) with MR angiography. The patients with a past history related to ICANs were excluded from the study. The incidence and characteristics of ICAN in patients with ADPKD were evaluated. TKV was measured by volumetric analyses of MR imaging. Results We detected 65 ICANs in 49 patients (37 women and 12 men, mean age, 52.7 years; range, 20.4–86 years). The incidence of ICANs was 18.5% and female patients had was higher incidence (23.1%) than male patients (11.4%) (p = 0.02). An age of those with ICANs was significantly higher than those without (p = 0.006), and the cumulative risk of diagnosis of ICANs increased with age. TKV was significantly larger in those with ICANs than those without (p = 0.001), but eGFR was not different between two groups (p = 0.07). By multivariate analyses, only TKV was significantly related to the development of ICANs (p = 0.02). Conclusions The incidence of ICANs increased with age, was higher in females, and correlated with kidney enlargement in patients with ADPKD. Necessity of screening ICANs would be particularly high in elderly women with large kidneys.

  • Affordable self-regulating irrigation device for microsurgery using
           readily available malleable wire and a Silastic tube: a technical note
    • Authors: Yeongu Chung; Sung Ho Lee; Jiwook Ryu; Jun Ho Lee; Seok Keun Choi
      Pages: 2351 - 2354
      Abstract: Background A relevant irrigating and flushing maneuver during cerebral microsurgical procedures allows for a neat and optimal operative field. However, when operating on the deep region of the brain, a delicately created slim surgical corridor could unintentionally hinder the assisting surgeon from properly performing this routine maneuver. Method To address this problem, the authors devised a useful and convenient irrigation system that can be used during cerebral microsurgery. Results This system only necessitates a readily available silastic feeding tube and a malleable wire. The advantages of our devised system include the convenience of free molding, good endurance of the molded contour, and easy control over the amount of irrigation. Conclusions In this report, the authors demonstrated technical tips for using this newly devised system.

  • Heterotopic epithelialization presenting as a non-healing scalp wound
           after surgery
    • Authors: Gustav Askaner; Rune Rasmussen; Grethe Schmidt; Eva Løbner Lund
      Pages: 2355 - 2357
      Abstract: Patients undergoing cerebral revascularization surgery have a relatively high incidence of wound complications. We report a case of heterotopic epithelialization of the dura presenting as a non-healing scalp wound after an extracranial-intracranial (EC-IC) arterial bypass. The scalp wound was revised twice without healing. During the third revision, epithelial tissue was found growing on the dura and was removed. After the epithelial tissue was removed, the wound healed without further complications. This case illustrates the importance of thoroughly examining a non-healing wound to find the cause.

  • Cervical sagittal alignment after different anterior discectomy procedures
           for single-level cervical degenerative disc disease: randomized controlled
           trial
    • Authors: Roland D. Donk; Hisse Arnts; Wim I. M. Verhagen; Hans Groenewoud; Andre Verbeek; Ronald H. M. A. Bartels
      Pages: 2359 - 2365
      Abstract: Background The effect of anterior cervical discectomy without fusion (ACD), ACD with fusion by stand-alone cage (ACDF) or with arthroplasty (ACDA) on cervical sagittal alignment is not known and is the subject of this study. Methods A total of 142 adult patients with single-level cervical disease were at random allocated to different procedures: ACD (45), ACDF (47) and ACDA (50). Upright cervical spine radiographs were obtained. Angles of the involved angle and the angle between C2 and C7 were determined. Results After a mean follow-up of 25.4 ± 18.4 months, the angles of the involved level comparing ACD with ACDA and ACD with ACDF were different, reaching statistical significance. However, the angle between C2 and C7 did not differ between groups or between preoperative values and at follow-up. Conclusions Irrespective of the technique used for anterior cervical discectomy for single-level degenerative disc disease, the alignment of the cervical spine is unaltered.

  • Clinical and radiological results of posterior cervical foraminotomy at
           two or three levels: a 3-year follow-up
    • Authors: Dong Geun Lee; Choon Keun Park; Dong Chan Lee
      Pages: 2369 - 2377
      Abstract: Background Single-level unilateral posterior cervical foraminotomy is regarded as a safe method. However, the outcomes of posterior cervical foraminotomy performed on two or three levels are uncertain and debated. We aimed to analyze the long-term clinical and radiological outcomes of posterior cervical foraminotomy at two or three levels. Methods From September 2008 to December 2011, a total of 42 patients who underwent a posterior cervical foraminotomy at two or three levels and were followed for at least 3 years were analyzed with retrospective cohort study. Clinical assessments were performed using the visual analog scale (VAS), neck disability index (NDI) and modified MacNab criteria. Radiological evaluation included the assessment of static and dynamic lateral radiographs to identify instability, postlaminectomy kyphotic deformity, adjacent segmental degeneration (ASD), and focal degeneration. Results The mean VAS improved from preoperative score 8.5 ± 0.3 to postoperative score 1.8 ± 0.5 significantly. The mean presenting NDI score was 32.9 ± 2.0 and the mean postoperative NDI score was 14.2 ± 1.3. Improvement of radiculopathy was displayed in 39 patients (92.9%). During radiological evaluation, no significant change in disc height related to ASD and focal degeneration was noted. However, we confirmed one patient with radiological instability and one patient with radiological postlaminectomy kyphotic deformity. Conclusions Posterior cervical foraminotomy at two or three levels is fairly effective for treating patients with cervical radiculopathy, and results in long-lasting pain relief and improved quality of life in nearly all patients. However, further studies of three levels that include more patients are needed.

  • Patients’ beliefs about diagnosis and treatment of cervical
           spondylosis with radiculopathy
    • Authors: Clemens Weber; Maziar Behbahani; Roald Baardsen; Jens Lehmberg; Bernhard Meyer; Ehab Shiban
      Pages: 2379 - 2384
      Abstract: Background The clinical results of surgical spine care may be influenced by the patients’ understanding and knowledge of his or her condition, treatment options and decision-making process. The aim of this survey study was to evaluate certain beliefs and opinions of patients with a degenerative condition in the cervical spine with a history of cervical radiculopathy such as importance of magnetic resonance imaging, risk factors, treatment alternatives and effectiveness. Methods An anonymous questionnaire survey was performed on two different patient populations with a degenerative condition in the cervical spine with a history of cervical radiculopathy referred to the outpatients’ clinics of two neurosurgical departments in Germany and Norway. The survey consisted of seven questions: four questions about the respondents’ gender and age, history of previous spine surgery and/or conservative treatment for cervical disorder and three questions regarding the importance of imaging in the decision-making process, patients’ willingness to undergo cervical surgery based on imaging findings even with few or no symptoms and the effectiveness of surgical or conservative treatment. Results Two hundred eleven patients answered the questionnaire. Sixty-seven percent of all patients with a degenerative cervical condition believe that results from MRI studies are more important than clinical findings. Forty-seven percent were willing to undergo surgery based on MRI showing abnormalities even without or having few symptoms. Fifty percent believe that surgery is more effective in the treatment of axial neck pain. Conclusion Misbeliefs and misconceptions exist concerning certain aspects of the diagnosis and management in patients with degenerative conditions in the cervical spine with a history of cervical radiculopathy in a large proportion of patients referred to neurosurgical outpatient clinics.

    • Authors: Pierluigi Vergara
      Pages: 2385 - 2388
      Abstract: Background Circumferential intradural spinal meningiomas are exceptionally rare. They pose several surgical challenges and a complete excision is not easy. The aim of this study is to provide surgical strategies to facilitate a full excision of such tumors. Methods A fully circumferential intradural meningioma at T9/10 was fully removed via a posterior approach and a structured single procedure, with no intra or perioperative complications. Conclusions Complete removal of circumferential spinal meningiomas can be achieved with wise preoperative planning, familiarity with techniques needed to transpose the spinal cord, and a structured staged excision of the four components of these tumors.

  • Amygdalohippocampotomy for mesial temporal lobe sclerosis: Epilepsy
           outcome 5 years after surgery
    • Authors: Antonio Gonçalves-Ferreira; Alexandre Rainha-Campos; Ana Franco; Jose Pimentel; Carla Bentes; Ana-Rita Peralta; Carlos Morgado
      Pages: 2443 - 2448
      Abstract: Background The goal of the present study is the evaluation of the long-term clinical outcome of epilepsy in patients with mesial temporal lobe sclerosis (MTLS) submitted to amygdalohippocampotomy (AHCo). AHCo consists of the lateral ablation of the amygdala and the peri-hippocampal disconnection instead of amygdalohippocampectomy (AHC), which involves the removal of both structures. We previously reported the short-term results of AHCo, so we here present the long-term results (> 5 years of follow-up) of the patients operated on with AHCo. Method Since 2007, 35 patients (22 females) aged 20–61 years (mean: 42 years) were operated on with the AHCo technique, 17 patients on the left side and 18 on the right. Of these patients, 21 (14 females) have been followed up > 5 years (5 to 7.5 years, mean 6.5 years). We compare the present results with those observed shortly after surgery and with the patients operated on with AHC. Findings In all 21 cases, the diagnosis was mesial temporal lobe sclerosis (histology confirmed in 20), 11 on the left side and 10 on the right. Epilepsy results after 5 years were good/very good in 18 patients (85.7%), with Engel class IA–B in 15 (71.4%) and II in 3 (14.3%), and bad in 3 patients, with Engel Class III in 2 (9.5%) and class IV in 1 (4.8%). Concerning morbidity, one patient had hemiparesis (hypertensive capsular hemorrhage 24 h after surgery), two verbal memory worsening, two quadrantanopia and three late depression that was reversed with medication. Comparatively, the AHC long-term results were 87% Engel class I, 8% Engel class II and 5% Engel class III–IV. The morbidity was equally small. Conclusions The good/very good results of AHCo 5 years after surgery are 86%, which is not distinct from the AHC results. So AHCo seems to be effective and potentially safer than AHC in long-term follow-up.
