Abstract: Craniopharyngioma is a type ofembryo-epithelium tumor which originates from the remnant tissue of Rathke’spouch, and the tumor mostly grows in saddle.[1–3] During growth, the tumor usuallyinfluences important tissue structures such as hypothalamus, visual pathway,stalk hypophysial and internal carotid. Besides, tumor removal may cause manycomplications, with low total removal and high recurrence rates. Thus, theresection of craniopharyngioma has always been a changeable operation inneurosurgery.  This study aimed tosummarize the clinical experiences and postoperative effects of microsurgicalapproaches for craniopharyngioma.ReadMore">

Abstract: Neutrophil–lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a poor prognostic factor inmany tumors including glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), colorectal, and prostatecancer. The study was conducted to investigate the prognostic values ofpreoperative NLR in patients with craniopharyngioma.  Preoperative NLR may be a simple, readilyavailable and valid predictor of long-term outcome in craniopharyngioma.  The study suggested that the NLR can provideeffective guidance to neurosurgeons for more information about the tumor andprognostic evaluation.ReadMore">

Abstract: Extradural hematomas (EDH) are consideredlife threatening in that the risk for brain herniation is significant. Thecurrent accepted understanding within the literature is to treat EDH viasurgical evacuation of the hematoma.  Theauthors report a case series from Sohar Hospital 62 cases of EDH that weremanaged successfully conservatively without neurological intervention.  This case series provides important guidancefor neurosurgical care of patients with epidural hematomas.ReadMore">

Abstract:  Meningiomas are typically slow-growing,extra-axial, pathologically benign lesions, comprising nearly a third of allcentral nervous system tumours. Over 50% of intracranial meningiomas, however,present with peritumoural brain oedema. The study was conducted to determinethe role of peritumoural brain oedema (PTBE) in outcomes of meningioma surgery,and the impact of peri-operative steroid use.ReadMore

Abstract: Acute subduralhematoma (aSDH) is a major cause of admission at Neurosurgical EmergencyDepartment. Nevertheless, concerns regarding surgical indication in patientswith multiple comorbidities, poor neurological status, antithrombotic therapy, andolder age still persist. Therefore, a correct recognition of predictive outcomefactors at hospital discharge is crucial to an appropriate neurosurgicaltreatment. ReadMore

Abstract: The rate of complete remission of seizures afterepilepsy surgery for mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) is only 60% to 70%. Almostone third of patients continue to have seizures after surgery. The long-termoutcome is worse than the short-term outcome, with 48 to 58 percent continuingto experience seizures 5 years after surgery.  It is important to develop reliable predictorsof surgical outcomes for MTLE and selecting proper surgical candidates remainsa challenge.  This study was conducted toinvestigate the long-term postoperative outcomes and predictive factorsassociated with poor surgical outcomes in mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE).ReadMore">

hemangioblastomas, and arteriovenous malformations (AVM). These lesions are each unique and the literature pertaining to their surgical management is largely limited to retrospective case series and case reports. It is imperative to appreciate, separately, the unique angioarchitecture of each lesion, as well as their natural history, symptomatic presentation, diagnosis, indications for surgery, and surgical outcomes. Herein the authors present a clinical case series of the surgical management of intramedullary spinal cord cavernous malformations, hemangioblastomas, and intramedullary arteriovenous malformations over a 17-year period at a single institution.ReadMore">
