  • Safety and accuracy of incisionless transcranial MR-guided focused ultrasound functional neurosurgery: single-center experience with 253 targets in 180 treatments. [Journal Article]
    J Neurosurg 2018; :1-10Gallay MN, Moser D, Jeanmonod D
  • CONCLUSIONS: The incisionless transcranial MRgFUS technology demonstrates a higher targeting accuracy and a lower side-effect profile than techniques requiring cerebral penetration. In the absence of penetration brain shift, this technique avoids the placement of a thermolesion away from the chosen target, thus suppressing the need for reversible therapeutic energy application. With the use of proper physiopathology-based targets, definitive therapeutic effects can be coupled with sparing of sensory, motor, and paralimbic/multimodal thalamocortical functions. Clinical efficacy, not analyzed in this investigation, will ultimately rest in proper target selection and optimized thermolesional coverage of the target.
  • Successful Tractotomy Technique for a Penetrating Lung Injury in a Patient with One Lung. [Case Reports]
    Korean J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2017; 50(5):399-402Kang DH, Park HO, … Kim SH
  • We report the case of a patient with penetrating chest trauma (right chest) who had undergone a left pneumonectomy due to pulmonary tuberculosis 24 years ago. We performed an emergent thoracotomy, finding an opening of the penetrating wound in a lower-lobe basal segment of the right lung. A stapled tractotomy was performed along the tract. Bleeding control and air-leakage control was done easily …
  • The History and Future of Ablative Neurosurgery for Major Depressive Disorder. [Review]
    Stereotact Funct Neurosurg 2017; 95(4):216-228Volpini M, Giacobbe P, … Lipsman N
  • CONCLUSIONS: The longitudinal experience with ablative procedures shows that there remains an important role for accurate, discrete lesions in disrupting affective circuitry in the treatment of TRD. New modalities, such as MRgFUS, have the potential to further improve the accuracy of ablative procedures, while enhancing safety by obviating the need for open brain surgery.
  • Predictors of outcome in 101 patients requiring emergent thoracotomy for penetrating pulmonary injuries. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Trauma Emerg Surg 2018; 44(1):55-61Asensio JA, Ogun OA, … Petrone P
  • CONCLUSIONS: Predictors of outcome for penetrating pulmonary injuries requiring thoracotomy are identified and must be taken into account in their operative management. Tissue sparing techniques-stapled pulmonary tractotomy is once again validated, and it remains effective as the mainstay for their management; however, only pneumonectomy predicts outcome. AAST-OIS injury grades IV-VI predict outcome with higher injury grades requiring resective procedures.
