Abstract: The incidence of intracranial tumor is 5% of that of systemic tumor. Some of them are presented as large ones because of slow growth. The higher complications are challenging due to their potential behaviors after resection such as large residual cavity, cortex collapse and bridging vein rupture.

Retrospective Study Volume 2 Issue 1
Abstract: Spinal surgery for patients with degenerative lumbar spine disorder has a high success rate, but some patients experience postoperative back and leg pain (POBLP). Some of these patients are diagnosed to have Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS). Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) has been documented to be an effective treatment for FBSS. The success rate of SCS is higher in patients who are treated within one year after their last spine surgery. This retrospective analysis of hospital records of patients receiving SCS for failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS) aims at evaluating the current trajectory FBSS patients follow and to record the time delay between their last spine surgery and SCS trial.

Abstract: The benefits and safety of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) for the treatment of carotid artery stenosis are well established. Perioperative complications such as thrombosis, embolism, and subsequent stroke caused by technical error can potentially prevented if detected and addressed while still in the operating room. Intraoperative duplex ultrasonography and arteriography are studies that are frequently employed to evaluate for defects following the procedure. Indocyanine green video angiography (ICGVA) is used frequently by vascular neurosurgeons in other procedures such as aneurysm clipping to directly visualize the vessels and identify potential complications.
Abstract: Refractory trigeminal neuralgia may be source of heavy discomfort and disability for patients with pitiful quality of life. Trigeminal thermocoagulation by radiofrequency is helpful to provide a good outcome and better life. To report and assess our experience and to determine outcome of quality of life of patients after a percutaneous trigeminal thermocoagulation.
Abstract: In this retrospective study, we analyzed 105 cases of ruptured MCAAs, admitted from January 2001 to December 2015 at Neurosurgical Department of Umberto I University Hospital of Rome, Italy.
