  • Congress of Neurological Surgeons Systematic Review and Evidence-Based Guidelines on the Evaluation and Treatment of Patients with Thoracolumbar Spine Trauma: Surgical Approaches. [Journal Article]
  • NNeurosurgery 2018 Sep 06
  • Anderson PA, Raksin PB, … O'Toole JE
  • CONCLUSIONS: In the surgical treatment of patients with thoracolumbar burst fractures, physicians may use an anterior, posterior, or a combined approach as the selection of approach does not appear to impact clinical or neurological outcomes. Strength of Recommendation: Grade B With regard to radiologic outcomes in the surgical treatment of patients with thoracolumbar fractures, physicians may utilize an anterior, posterior, or combined approach because there is conflicting evidence in the comparison among approaches. Strength of Recommendation: Grade Insufficient With regard to complications in the surgical treatment of patients with thoracolumbar fractures, physicians may use an anterior, posterior, or combined approach because there is conflicting evidence in the comparison among approaches. Strength of Recommendation: Grade Insufficient The full version of the guideline can be reviewed at: https://www.cns.org/guideline-chapters/congress-neurological-surgeons-systematic-review-evidence-based-guidelines/chapter_11.
  • Congress of Neurological Surgeons Systematic Review and Evidence-Based Guidelines on the Evaluation and Treatment of Patients With Thoracolumbar Spine Trauma: Nonoperative Care. [Journal Article]
  • NNeurosurgery 2018 Sep 06
  • Hoh DJ, Qureshi S, … O'Toole JE
  • CONCLUSIONS: This evidence-based guideline provides a grade B recommendation that management either with or without an external brace is an option given equivalent improvement in outcomes for neurologically intact patients with thoracic and lumbar burst fractures. The decision to use an external brace is at the discretion of the treating physician, as bracing is not associated with increased adverse events compared to no brace.The decision to use an external brace is at the discretion of the treating physician, as the nonoperative management of neurologically intact patients with thoracic and lumbar burst fractures either with or without an external brace produces equivalent improvement in outcomes.

  • Giant Extra-Axial Cavernous Angioma of the Falx: Case Report. [Journal Article]
  • NNeurosurgery 2018 Mar 20
  • Simonin A, Passaplan C, … Otten P
  • CONCLUSIONS: Cavernous angiomas or cavernomas can present as extra-axial lesions. Although progressive growth can be observed, they should not be considered as tumoral lesions, because there is no cellular duplication. Unlike other locations, resection of anterior cranial fossa extra-axial cavernomas seems to be facilitated by minimal bleeding.
