A Comprehensive Procedure to Evaluate the In Vitro Performance of the Putative Hemangioblastoma Neovascularization Using the Spheroid Sprouting Assay Ying Wang1, DanQi Chen1, MingYu Chen1, KaiYuan Ji1, DeXuan Ma1, LiangFu Zhou1 1Department of Neurosurgery, Huashan Hospital, Fudan University This paper presents a comprehensive procedure to evaluate in vitro whether classic tumor angiogenesis exists in hemangioblastomas (HBs) and its role in HBs. The results highlight the complexity of HB-neovascularization and suggest that this common form of angiogenesis is only a complementary mechanism in the HB-neovascularization.

The Utility of "low Current" Stimulation Threshold of Intraoperative Electromyography Monitoring in Predicting Facial Nerve Function Outcome After Vestibular Schwannoma Surgery: a Prospective Cohort Study of 103 Large Tumors Journal of Neuro-oncology. | Pubmed ID: 29476309 To investigate the predictive utility of stimulation threshold (ST) of intraoperative electromyography monitoring for facial nerve (FN) outcomes among vestibular schwannoma (VS) patients postoperatively. The authors enrolled 103 unilateral VS patients who underwent surgical resection into a prospective cohort observational study from January 2013 to April 2015 in our hospital. ST values were used to categorize 81 patients into the "low current" (ST ≤ 0.05 mA) group and 22 patients into the control (ST > 0.05 mA) group. The FN function outcomes were summarized and correlated with these two groups at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after surgery. Binary regression analysis revealed that the percentage of "good" FN outcome, defined by House-Brackmann (HB) classification of facial function (I-II), in the "low current" group was significantly higher than that of the control group (42.0 vs. 4.5% at 1 month, P = 0.015; 64.2 vs. 31.8% at 3 months, P = 0.024; 72.8 vs. 40.9% at 6 months, P = 0.021; 84.0 vs. 45.5% at 12 months, P = 0.002). Ordinal regression analysis showed that the distribution of HB scores was shifted in a favorable direction in the "low current" group at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months postoperatively. For patients with HB IV at the first month postoperative period, the recovery rate of the "low current" group was significantly higher than that of control group (P = 0.003). "Low current" can predict FN function outcomes better and has faster recovery rates than that of the control group.
