Laparoscopic guidance may provide safe abdominal access and identify an area for optimal cerebrospinal fluid drainage.

OBJECTIVE The middle fossa transpetrosal approach to the petroclival and posterior cavernous sinus regions includes removal of the anterior petrous apex (APA), an area well studied in adults but not in children. To this end, the authors performed a morphometric analysis of the APA region during pediatric maturation.

During PREVENT (a phase 3, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, time-to-event study) and its open-label extension (interim analysis), 33 adults with aquaporin-4 immunoglobulin G-positive neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (AQP4-IgG + NMOSD) received eculizumab monotherapy for a median of 2.8 years (range, 14 weeks-5.2 years). At 192 weeks (~4 years), 96% of these patients were free from adjudicated relapses (Kaplan-Meier analysis; 95% confidence interval, 75.7-99.4). During PREVENT,...
