STUDY DESIGN Case series, literature review, and technical note. OBJECTIVES To compare two different approaches to treat the spinal deformity with split cord malformation type I (SCM I). To present a new method of one-stage surgical treatment of congenital spinal deformity with wide bony septum (SCM I). METHODS Analysis of the literature on the different types of combined surgical treatment of spinal deformities with SCM I was performed. We have provided our own data on 27 patients treated for c...

PURPOSE Develop and pilot an iPad-based intervention for improving visual-motor coordination, visual-spatial processing/reasoning, and visual attention in children with surgically treated hydrocephalus (HCP). METHODS We developed an intervention protocol targeting visual-motor coordination, visual-spatial processing/reasoning, and visual attention. Fourteen participants with HCP completed 30 h of training over 6 weeks. The primary outcome measure was the Perceptual Reasoning Index from the Wechs...
The aim of this study was to analyze the role of endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) in the treatment of pediatric chronic communicating congenital hydrocephalus (CCCH). This retrospective study comprised a series of 11 children with CCCH treated with ETV. Data were recorded on gender, history, presenting symptoms, age at surgery, complications during surgery, clinical evolution, ETV survival, and follow-up period. Radiological variables including ventricular and cephalic diameters were also ...

BACKGROUND Many methods are reported for simultaneous endoscopic 3rd ventriculostomy and posterior 3rd ventricular biopsy with their pros and cons. We describe a novel single-entry two-stage rotational outside-in technique using the common 6° ventriculoscope and contrast this with others. TECHNIQUE Using a single burr hole, at the line extended from aqueduct through the larger foramen of Monro in parasagittal imaging, the ventricular endoscope is first inserted with 6° angled view anteroinferior...

Introduction null Medulloblastoma is the commonest embryonal brain tumor in children. Their association with other neuroepithelial brain tumors is less known. Here we discuss a pediatric patient who developed esthesioneuroblastoma 2 years after treatment of medulloblastoma. null Materials and methods null A 12-year-old male presented with features of raised intracranial hypertension, and radiology showed posterior fossa midline lesion. The tumor was excised, and biopsy revealed medulloblastoma (...

PURPOSES Brachytherapy has been indicated as an alternative option for treating cystic craniopharyngiomas. Despite the difficulties regarding the complex nuclear infrastructure and consequent small number of brachytherapy studies, recent discoveries relating tumour characteristics to sensitivity to brachytherapy have stimulated this extensive systematic review and meta-analysis of the recent results aiming to summarise its efficacy and complications. METHODS The systematic review was structured ...

OBJECTIVES To the best of our knowledge, there is no study on 3-Tesla (3-T) phase-contrast MRI (PC-MRI) and three-dimensional sampling perfection with application-optimized contrasts using different flip-angle evolutions (3D-SPACE-VFAM) in the evaluation of idiopathic scoliosis. This study aimed to investigate CSF abnormalities in the scoliotic spine using 3-T PC-MRI and 3D-SPACE-VFAM techniques. METHODS Thirty-four patients and 14 controls were examined with spinal PC-MRI and T2-weighted 3D-SPA...

PURPOSE Desmoid-type fibromatosis (DF) is clonal fibroblastic proliferation that arises in the deep soft tissues, tends to reoccur, and is locally invasive. Desmoid-type fibromatosis of paranasal sinuses with intracranial extension is a rare condition that is even rarer in a small child. We aim to share with the reader our literature review, decision-making, and endoscopic endonasal operation procedure that combined gained us favorable results against this benign tumor with unpredictable natural...

Atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumors (AT/RTs) are aggressive embryonal neoplasms of the central nervous system that correspond to WHO grade IV and have a dismal prognosis. The latest Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States data shows that AT/RT constitutes 16.6% of all embryonal tumors in children. The molecular hallmark of this tumor is pathogenic SMARCB1 genetic alterations resulting in the loss of INI-1 immunopositivity, with fewer tumors harboring SMARCA4 (BRG1) variants. Maternal emb...

INTRODUCTION The optimal protocol for diagnostic workup of craniosynostosis and the role of specific imaging modalities remain controversial. Skull X-rays and 3-dimensional head CTs are options when physical exam is equivocal but involve ionizing radiation. Ultrasound has emerged as an alternative modality for visualization of cranial sutures, but its use is not widespread. METHODS The authors performed a systematic review of the literature on the use of ultrasound for the diagnosis of craniosyn...
