Is active follow-up by serial imaging justified in patients with multiple cerebral cavernous malformations?

Julia Velz, Oliver Bozinov, Martin Nikolaus Stienen, Marian Christoph Neidert, Yang Yang & Luca Regli
Objective: The best strategy to perform follow-up of patients with multiple cerebral cavernous malformations (mCCM) is unclear due to the mainly unknown and unpredictable clinical course. Still, serial radiological follow-up is often performed. The objective of this work was to critically question whether[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]

Michael Bender, Tim Naumann, Katharina Graf, Eberhard Uhl & Marco Stein
Objective: Spontaneous intracerebral haemorrhage (SICH) is with 10-15% the second most common cause of stroke and is associated with a high morbidity and mortality. This study was conducted to investigate the influence of early clinical predictors during acute care on intra-hospital outcome in [for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]

Glasgow Coma Scale is an independent predictor for the endvolume of malignant cerebral infarction in patients undergoing decompressive hemicraniectomy

Christoph Bettag, Alexandra Sachkova, Dorothee Mielke, Veit Rohde & Vesna Malinova
Objective: Although decompressive hemicraniectomy (DHC) significantly reduces the mortality of malignant cerebral infarction (MCI), still a high rate of moderate to severe disability is observed among the survivors. Particularly the right point in time performing DHC has not been defined yet. In this[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]

Hemorrhage risk management of cavernous malformations

Sepide Kashefiolasl, Markus Bruder, Nina Brawanski, Eva Herrmann, Volker Seifert, Stephanie Tritt & Konczalla, JüRgen
Objective: Despite of the low annual risk of hemorrhage associated with a cavernous malformation (CM) (0,6% to 1,1% per year), the risk of rehemorrhage rate and severity of neurological deficits is significantly higher. We aimed to evaluate different hemorrhage risk factors, particularly in[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]

A systematic literature-review concerning contralateral approaches to paraclinoidal ICA-aneurysms

Lucas Serrano, Sven Rainer Kantelhardt, Florian Ringel & Eleftherios Archavlis
Objective: Paraclinoidal ICA-aneurysms constitute a challenge to surgeons. Some neurosurgeons have advocated the application of a contralateral approach, claiming that the anatomy of the paraclinoid region is best exposed from the contralateral side. Small case-series have been published reporting favourable[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]

Anatomic variations of the distal basilar artery and basilar tip aneurysms: Epidemiologic and morphologic correlations

Angelo Tortora, Hans-Jakob Steiger & Kerim Beseoglu
Objective: Anatomical variations of distal basilar artery are common findings during diagnostic of cerebral circulation and are mostly interpreted as benign conditions. The goal of this study was to investigate if these alternative patterns are related to the formation and rupture of aneurysms in this[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]

Early temporary occlusion of the contralateral A1 for anterior communicating artery aneurysms in standardized right-sided approaches

Friedrich Mrosk, Ondra Petr, Claudia Unterhofer, Thomé, Claudius & Martin Ortler
Objective: Temporary artery occlusion (TAO) to provide proximal control and facilitate aneurysm dissection may cause ischemic brain injury.

Microsurgical clipping of unruptured intracranial aneurysms with multiple sacs

GöRtz, Lukas, Gerrit Brinker, Christina Hamisch, Sergej Telentschak, Boris Krischek & Roland Goldbrunner
Objective: Aneurysms with multiple sacs account for approximately 30% of unruptured intracranial aneurysms (UIAs), but data on their particular treatment are rare.

Impact of parent vessel diameters on aneurysm rupture risk

Tobias Pantel, Axel Neulen, Florian Ringel & Sven Rainer Kantelhardt
Objective: Studies on contrast uptake in aneurysm walls raised the hypothesis that contrast enhancement and hence rupture risk of aneurysms may not only depend on aneurysm size, but also on the relation of aneurysm and parental vessel diameter. We therefore examined the distribution of aneurysm sizes[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]

Aneurysm wall enhancement in black blood MRI correlates with aneurysm size. A study on 71 Patients with 90 Aneurysms

Athanasios Petridis, Elias Chasoglou, Igor Fischer, Jan Frederick Cornelius, Marcel Alexander Kamp, Hans-Jakob Steiger & Rebecca May
Objective: Finding of incidental intracranial aneurysms leads to the dilemma to treat or to observe. Even though clinical scoring systems consider risk factors for aneurysm rupture, objective parameters for assessment of aneurysms stability are needed. Methods: Retrospective analysis was performed[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]

Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) test as a screening instrument for cognitive deficits in patients with primary brain tumors – first results of a prospective investigation

GrüBel, Nadja, Mirjam Renovanz, Jan Coburger & Christian Rainer Wirtz
Objective: Neurocognitive deficits are common symptoms in patients with primary brain tumors and might be underestimated in routine clinical assessment.

Glioma patients in the outpatient setting: optimizing the assessment of distress and unmet needs – results of 50 structured interviews and an expert analysis

Voß, Hannah, Mirjam Renovanz, Jan Coburger, Peter Scholz-Kreisel, Florian Ringel & Susanne Singer
Objective: Distress and need of support in glioma patients may remain unrecognized as these patients may not be able (mentally or physically) to complete self-report instruments applied in screening procedures. An alternative approach is to (re-)integrate the assessment in the doctor-patient consultation.[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]

Intra- and interindividual differences in quality of life and preference perception in patients with eloquent intracranial tumors

ButenschöN, Vicki, Stefanie Maurer, Tamara Pircher, Sebastian Ille, Nico Sollmann, Bernhard Meyer & Sandro Krieg
Objective: Quality of life years (QALY) are nowadays commonly used to estimate the efficiency and benefits of the chosen treatment.

Objective: Five to ten percent of carcinomas with bone metastases show spinal metastases (Barron KD, Hirano A, Araki S, Terry RD 1959; Schaberg J, Gainor BJ. 1985). As the long-term survival of patients with carcinoma is rising, the amount of patients with symptomatic spine metastases increases as well[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]

Case series meningeal melanocytoma – “Chameleon in the spinal canal”

Max Schneider, Jan Coburger, Bernd Schmitz & Christian Rainer Wirtz
Objective: Numerous differential diagnoses are considered for patients presenting with intraspinal tumors. Intraspinal melanocytomas originating from leptomeningeal melanocytes are a very rare entity.
