KOL-Index: 77 Background: Ependymoma is a rare CNS tumor arising from the ependymal lining of the ventricular system. General differences in incidence and survival have been noted but not examined on a comprehensive scale for all ages and by histology. Despite the rarity of ependymomas, morbidity/mortality associated with an ependymoma diagnosis justifies closer examination. Methods: Incidence data were ...

KOL-Index: 39 BACKGROUND: We report a series of 3 cases of metastatic thymoma to the spine with spinal cord compression. An extensive literature review of thymic metastases to the spine was completed to provide a comprehensive appraisal of current prognostic indicators and potential treatment algorithms to help guide clinicians in treatment management. CASE DESCRIPTIONS: Between 2000 and 2017, 3 patients ...

KOL-Index: 32 BACKGROUND: There is a growing attention to determine the factors that predict quality of life (QoL) improvement after deep brain stimulation (DBS) for Parkinson's disease. Prior literature has largely focused on examining predictors one at a time, sometimes controlling for covariates. OBJECTIVE: To develop a model that could be used as a nomogram to predict improvement in QoL following DBS ...

KOL-Index: 29 Herpes simplex encephalitis is a common viral encephalitis associated with significant morbidity and mortality if not diagnosed and treated early. Neurosurgery may be an impetus for viral reactivation, either from direct nerve manipulation or high-dose steroids often administered during cases. The authors present the 40th known case of herpes simplex virus (HSV) encephalitis following ...

KOL-Index: 29 BACKGROUND: Meningioma incidence increases significantly with age. In the expanding elderly population, we lack complete understanding of population-based trends in meningioma incidence/survival. We provide an updated, comprehensive analysis of meningioma incidence and survival for individuals aged over 65. METHODS: Data were obtained from the Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United ...

KOL-Index: 23 STUDY DESIGN: A consecutive retrospective cohort study from 2008 to 2013 at a single tertiary-care institution was conducted. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to characterize recovery from pain and neurologic deficit after surgery for vertebral osteomyelitis (VO), and identify incidence of postoperative adverse events. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: A minority of patients with VO require ...

KOL-Index: 14 Objectives  Intraoperative navigation during neurosurgery can aid in the detection of critical structures and target lesions. The safety and efficacy of intraoperative, stereotactic computed tomography (CT) in the transnasal transsphenoidal resection of pituitary adenomas were explored. Design  Retrospective chart review Setting  Tertiary care hospital Participants  Patients who underwent ...

KOL-Index: 13 Measuring tumor-specific trends in incidence is necessary to elucidate tumor-type contribution to overall cancer burden in the US population. Recently, there have been conflicting reports concerning the incidence of oligodendrogliomas (OD) and anaplastic oligodendrogliomas (AOD). Therefore, our goal was to examine trends in OD and AOD incidence and survival by age, gender and race. Data was ...

KOL-Index: 11 Population-based data examining recent epidemiological trends in medulloblastoma, the most common pediatric brain malignancy, are limited. Therefore, we sought to examine recent population-level trends in medulloblastoma incidence and survival. Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States (CBTRUS) data were analyzed from 2001 to 2013. Age-adjusted incidence rates (IR) and annual percent ...

KOL-Index: 11 OBJECTIVEDeep brain stimulation (DBS) is an effective therapy for movement disorders such as idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD) and essential tremor (ET). However, some patients who demonstrate benefit on objective motor function tests do not experience postoperative improvement in depression or anxiety, 2 important components of quality of life (QOL). Thus, to examine other possible ...
