Surgical Neurology (SURG NEUROL)
Surgical Neurology provides outstanding, comprehensive coverage of the latest developments in the field of neurosurgery by providing peer-reviewed articles that discuss advances in clinical practice and research of value for the practicing neurosurgeon and resident. In 1995, Surgical Neurology broadened its editorial scope to include information for the practicing neurosurgeon-in and out of the OR: the journal now features controversial editorials on scientific and non-scientific issues that concern neurosurgeons in today's changing world, including, health care, malpractice, practice building and development, advice to young neurosurgeons, and retirement.

ABSTRACT: Conventional percutaneous thermocoagulation of postgasserian fibers has shown high success rates, with significant residual morbidity. This communication summarizes conclusions of multiple publications on our computerized mapping method and technique, and presents new data on short- and long-term results on trigeminal pain, including an actuarial analysis, complications. In TTN, 97.4% of 75 procedures produced initial pain relief without medication. In all, 84.7% of appropriate verbal responses were achieved by proper location of the needle at the chosen target, requiring an average of 1.45 tracts per procedure. Needle tip was located between 1 and 15 mm below the sellar floor in 97.0% of procedures and in an angle of 40 degrees to 80 degrees regarding the clivus profile projection in 99.1%. A 93% reduction of corneal analgesia and a 100% suppression of major dysesthesias and cranial nerve palsies were found. We have shown a significant reduction of morbidity from percutaneous thermocoagulation of postgasserian fibers with similar short- and long-term results as those shown in 11 recently selected series. Strict adherence to all details of our new method and technique is essential. Future multiinstitutional studies are needed to confirm and enrich this small series.Surgical Neurology 05/2009; 71(4):411-8; discussion 418.

ABSTRACT: Microscope-integrated near-infrared indocyanine green videoangiography (ICG-VA) is a new method of intraoperative blood flow assessment. The objective of this study was to evaluate the reliability of this technique in the evaluation of neck residuals and patency of branches after microneurosurgical clipping of intracranial aneurysms (IAs). During a period of 14 months, between November 2005 and December 2006, 289 patients with intracranial aneurysms were operated on in our institution. Intraoperative ICG-VA was performed during microneurosurgical clipping of 239 IAs in 190 patients. Postoperative computed tomography and computed tomography angiography (CTA) were performed for all patients. Intraoperative interpretation of ICG-VA in assessing the neck residual or the patency of vessels after clipping of each single aneurysm were recorded and correlated with postoperative CTA and/or digital subtraction angiography. Postoperative imaging studies revealed no incomplete occlusions of aneurysm domes. Unexpected neck residuals were observed in 14 aneurysms (6%). There were no parent artery occlusions. Unexpected branch occlusions including both major and minor branching arteries were observed in 15 aneurysms (6%). Indocyanine green videoangiograph is a simple and fast method of blood flow assessment with acceptable reliability. Indocyanine green videoangiograph can provide real-time information to assess blood flow in vessels of different size as well as the occlusion of the aneurysm. Intraoperative assessment of blood flow in the perforating branches is one of the most important advantages. In selected cases such as giant, complex, and deep-sited aneurysms or when the quality of image in ICG-VA is not adequate, other methods of intraoperative blood flow assessment should be considered.Surgical Neurology 04/2009; 71(5):543-50; discussion 550.
