  • Extended Endoscopic Endonasal Clipping of Intracranial Aneurysms: An Anatomical Feasibility Study. [Journal Article]
    World Neurosurg 2019Montaser AS, Prevedello DM, … Carrau RL
  • CONCLUSIONS: Clipping of midline aneurysms of the posterior circulation is feasible via endoscopic endonasal approach. Small-sized ventrally and medially directed aneurysm models carried a better probability of getting proximal and/or distal control, as well as better overall ability to place a clip. The endonasal route seems to provide a limited condition for proper management of anterior circulation aneurysms.
  • "Anatomical aspects of the transnasal endoscopic access to the craniovertebral junction." [Journal Article]
    World Neurosurg 2019Nikolaevich SA, Nikolaevich NV, … Yegorovich SM
  • CONCLUSIONS: thorough knowledge of topographic anatomy of the craniovertebral junction is required for performing minimal-risk surgical intervention in this region. It is important to know all anatomical aspects of the transnasal approach in order to reduce the risk of damage to vital structures. Transnasal endoscopic surgery of the craniovertebral junction is a relatively new direction in neurosurgery, therefore anatomical studies such as the one described in this article are extremely important for development of this access method.
  • Education Management Platform Enables Delivery and Comparison of Multiple Evaluation Types. [Journal Article]
    J Surg Educ 2019Thanawala RM, Jesneck JL, Seymour NE
  • CONCLUSIONS: Evaluation initiatives can be hampered by the challenge of making multiple surgical evaluation instruments available when needed for appropriate clinical situations, including specific case types. As a test of the optimized evaluation workflow, and to lay the groundwork for future data-driven design of evaluations, we tested the impact of simultaneously delivering 2 evaluation instruments via a secure web-based education platform. We measured the evaluation completion rates of faculty surgeon evaluators when rating resident operative performance, and how effectively the results of evaluation could be analyzed and compared, taking advantage of a highly integrated management of the evaluative information.
  • Guidelines for Instrumentation for Total Knee Replacement Based on Frontal Plane Radiographs. [Journal Article]
    Bull Hosp Jt Dis (2013) 2018; 76(4):238-245Bahadır T, Werner J, … Walker PS
  • CONCLUSIONS: In a total knee replacement procedure, aligning perpendicular to the mechanical axis results on average about 2° more valgus and 2° to 3° tilt of the joint line. Instruments could be calibrated for individual patients, but the maximum variations based on long-term follow-up should be recognized. A multi-diameter system is needed for the femoral intramedullary rod to limit errors to 1° or less.
  • [The art of surgery in nuce : Introduction to Institutiones chirurgicae (1601) by Johannes Jessenius (1566-1621)]. [Review]
    Urologe A 2019Šimon F, Steger F
  • CONCLUSIONS: The three elements of surgical work represent a reduction of what is stated in the Hippocratic text De officina. Thus, recognizable here is an ancient tradition, which was also known to the predecessors of Jessenius.At the beginning of the work, aspects of an introduction to the surgical work of the 16th century are briefly recapitulated. Jessenius adheres to this historical tradition including aspects of urology of this work. In the introduction, he refers to various medical writers, without directly adopting the texts. The surgical artistry that Jessenius stands for is of fundamental importance to this day.
