Journal of Neurosurgery, Ahead of Print. OBJECTIVEThe aim of this retrospective multicenter cohort study was to assess the details of the angioarchitecture of arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) at the craniocervical junction (CCJ) and to determine the associations between the angiographic characteristics and the clinical presentations and outcomes.METHODSThe authors analyzed angiographic and clinical data for patients with CCJ AVFs from 20 participating centers that are members of the Japanese Society for Neuroendovascular Therapy (JSNET).… Read More...

Journal of Neurosurgery, Ahead of Print. OBJECTIVEThe orbitofrontal cortex (OFC) is understood to have a role in outcome evaluation and risk assessment and is commonly involved with infiltrative tumors. A detailed understanding of the exact location and nature of associated white matter tracts could significantly improve postoperative morbidity related to declining capacity.… Read More...

Journal of Neurosurgery: Pediatrics, Ahead of Print. OBJECTIVEA specific population of young patients with moyamoya disease (MMD) persistently experience physical symptoms not attributable to focal ischemia. These symptoms, highly suggestive of orthostatic intolerance (also termed “orthostatic dysregulation”), were investigated and reported as potential determinants of quality of life in young MMD patients.METHODSForty-six patients (6–30 years of age) were selected from a group of 122 patients who were diagnosed with MMD before 18 years of age.… Read More...

Journal of Neurosurgery, Ahead of Print. OBJECTIVECompressive cranial nerve syndromes can be useful bedside clues to the diagnosis of an enlarging intracranial aneurysm and can also guide subsequent evaluation, as with an acute oculomotor nerve (cranial nerve [CN] III) palsy that is presumed to be a posterior communicating artery aneurysm and a surgical emergency until proven otherwise.… Read More...

Journal of Neurosurgery, Ahead of Print. Sphenoorbital meningiomas (SOMs) are slow-growing tumors that originate from the sphenoidal wing and are associated with visual deterioration, extrinsic ocular movement disorders, and proptosis caused by hyperostosis of the lateral wall of the orbit. In some cases, the intracranial component is quite small or “en plaque,” and the majority of the symptoms arise from adjacent hyperostosis.… Read More...

Journal of Neurosurgery, Ahead of Print. OBJECTIVEThe management of brain arteriovenous malformations (bAVMs) remains controversial. The Treatment of Brain AVMs Study (TOBAS) was designed to manage patients with bAVMs within a clinical research framework. The objective of this study was to study trial feasibility, recruitment rates, patient allocation to the various management groups, and compliance with treatment allocation.METHODSTOBAS combines two randomized care trials (RCTs) and a registry.… Read More...

Journal of Neurosurgery, Ahead of Print. OBJECTIVESurgery is generally the first-line therapy for acromegaly. For patients with residual or recurrent tumors, several treatment options exist, including repeat surgery, medical therapy, and radiation. Reoperation for recurrent acromegaly has been associated with poor results, with hormonal control usually achieved in fewer than 50% of cases.… Read More...
