Transendoscopic Ultrasound for Neurosurgery

Endoscopic neurosurgery has now not but reached the protection and applicability of microsurgery. Endo-neuro-sonography is a brand new strategy geared toward making endoscopy more secure via real-time imaging and navigation ability (brain-radar). The endo-neurosonographic snapshot is a sonographic experiment on the tip of the endoscope (mini-CT) offering more information to the endoscopic view.

Moyamoya Disease

The 1st point out of moyamoya ailment as a special disorder entity was once in a paper I released in 1965. The irregular web­ like vessels on the base of the mind visible in cerebral angio­ grams of this ailment have been defined by means of so much local audio system of jap as "moyamoya," a jap expression for a few­ factor hazy, equivalent to a pant of cigarette smoke drifting within the air.

276,277 Based on the theoretical advantages of vascularized nerve grafts and some favorable animal studies, patterns of blood supply to human peripheral nerves and candidate human vascularized peripheral-nerve grafts have been sought. 280,281 Currently, vascularized nerve grafts are clinically indicated only when large-caliber nerve grafts, such as the ulnar nerve, are required,6 but are not needed if small-caliber grafts, such as the sural nerve, are used. 13 Accelerated Nerve Regeneration and FK-506 (Tacrolimus) Following peripheral-nerve injury and reconstruction, the time required for nerve regeneration is a major factor contributing to suboptimal return of motor function.

Slow transport has been demonstrated to decrease in velocity as well. 271 It is this change in axonal transport that may result in disorder of neuronal growth, innervation, and synaptic transmission with age. 240 The normal nerve is critically dependent upon the intrinsic blood supply and the perineurial and endoneurial vessels. This allows for the successful elevation of even large-diameter nerves over long distances, such as anterior transposition of the ulnar nerve in cubital-tunnel surgery.
