Superiority of tympanic ball electrodes over mastoid needle electrodes for intraoperative monitoring of hearing function.
J. Neurosurg.
PUBLISHED: 02-21-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Recording the auditory brainstem response (ABR) is a common method for monitoring the integrity of auditory pathways during surgery in the cerebellopontine angle. Electrocochleography (ECochG) is an alternative means of intraoperative neuromonitoring. In the present study the authors compared the practicability and prognostic significance of these two methods by performing simultaneous recordings in the operating room.

Longitudinal functional imaging studies of stroke are key in identifying the disease progression and possible therapeutic interventions. Here we investigate the applicability of real-time functional optoacoustic imaging for monitoring of stroke progression in the whole brain of living animals.

Impact of anterior clinoidectomy on visual function after resection of meningiomas in and around the optic canal.
Acta Neurochir (Wien)
PUBLISHED: 01-25-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Meningiomas of the anterior and middle skull base frequently involve the optic nerve and cause progressive visual impairment. Surgical decompression of the optic nerve is the only option to preserve visual function. Depending on the invaded structures, optic nerve decompression can be part of a complete tumor removal or the main surgical intention in terms of local debulking. However, bony decompression of the optic canal including anterior clinoidectomy for optic nerve decompression is still a surgical maneuver under discussion.

Endoscopic transnasal resection of the odontoid: case series and clinical course.
Eur Spine J
PUBLISHED: 06-18-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The transoral route is the gold standard for odontoid resection. Results are satisfying though surgery can be challenging for patients and surgeons due to its invasiveness. A less invasive transnasal approach could provide a sufficient extent of resection with less collateral damage. The technique of transnasal endoscopic odontoid resection is demonstrated by a case series of three patients. A fully endoscopic transnasal odontoid resection was conducted by use of CT-based neuronavigation. A complete odontoid resection succeeded in all patients. Symptoms such as dysarthria, swallowing disturbance, salivary retention, myelopathic gait disturbances, neck pain, and tetraparesis improved in all patients markedly. Transnasal endoscopic odontoid resection is a feasible alternative to the transoral technique. It leaves the oropharynx intact, which could result in lower approach related complications especially in patients with bulbar symptoms.

Bradykinin-induced leukocyte- and platelet-endothelium interactions in the cerebral microcirculation.
Brain Res.
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Bradykinin is known for its pathophysiological role as mediator of inflammation. Following cerebral ischemia, bradykinin promotes the secondary brain damage through an increase of vascular permeability and brain edema formation, again hallmarks of inflammation. It is not clear, whether bradykinin also activates inflammatory cells and regulates microcirculatory blood flow in the brain. The purpose of the study is to investigate the reaction of bradykinin upon cerebral leukocyte- and thrombocyte-endothelium interactions as well as microvascular perfusion. Intravital fluorescence microscopy of pial blood vessels was performed in gerbils. Intracarotid injection of bradykinin resulted in increased numbers of rolling and adherent leukocytes as well as rolling platelets at the venular endothelium. This was reversed by administration of a bradykinin B2 receptor antagonist. In contrast, after additional administration of a B1 receptor antagonist, microvascular blood-flow and capillary density was decreased. We conclude that bradykinin initiates leukocyte- and platelet-endothelium interactions in the cerebral microcirculation via activation of B2 receptors. Activation of B1 receptors ensures regular cerebral perfusion. Thus, to attenuate secondary brain damage, inhibition of B2 but not B1 receptors might be of therapeutical benefit.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
