  • Cavernoma of the cauda equina. [Journal Article]
  • SNSurg Neurol Int 2018; 9:174
  • Apostolakis S, Mitropoulos A, … Vlachos K
  • CONCLUSIONS: Cavernomas of the cauda equina are extramedullary, arise on the inner aspect of the dura, and may be tightly adhered to the nerve roots. To attain gross total excision, the involved nerve may have to be sacrificed; in some cases, this may result in a permanent neurological deficit. Of interest, half of the cauda equina lesions were previously found in patients who had prior radiotherapy; this was not the case in this patient.
  • Treatment outcomes of intracranial germinoma: a retrospective analysis of 170 patients from a single institution. [Journal Article]
  • JCJ Cancer Res Clin Oncol 2018 Sep 12
  • Lian X, Hou X, … Zhang F
  • CONCLUSIONS: WVI or WBRT+ primary boost (PB) is a sufficient irradiation field for localized intracranial germinoma, while patients with bifocal disease should undergo craniospinal irradiation (CSI), especially when treated with RT alone. CSF β-HCG is not a prognostic marker for intracranial germinomas. The treatment results of chemotherapy followed by reduced-dose RT are comparable to those of RT alone. IMRT is recommended for intracranial germinoma to improve the target volume accuracy and decrease the complications of RT.
  • Variety of preoperative MRI changes in spinal cord ependymoma of WHO grade II: a case series. [Journal Article]
  • ESEur Spine J 2018 Sep 12
  • Kobayashi K, Ando K, … Imagama S
  • CONCLUSIONS: MRI in cases of spinal ependymomas of WHO grade II showed characteristics such as hemorrhage and cyst formation that varied over time. In particular, cases with cyst and hemosiderin showed tumor enlargement, including enlargement of lesions on the caudal and rostral sides and enlargement of Gd-enhanced lesions. These characteristics might influence gait ability during preoperative period. We emphasize that early surgery is still the standard of care for cervical intramedullary ependymoma, and our findings in this study should not be interpreted to indicate that such early surgery is not necessary in symptomatic cases. These slides can be retrieved under electronic supplementary material.
