The Journal of Spine & Neurosurgery (JSNS) addresses the aspects of Spine, neurosurgical evaluation, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients with spine and peripheral nerve disorders. JSNS promotes rigorous research that makes a significant contribution in advancing knowledge for Neurosciences. JSNS includes all major themes pertaining to neuroscience practices and surgical treatment.

Articles submitted by authors are evaluated by a group of peer review experts in the field and ensures that the published articles are of high quality, reflect solid scholarship in their fields, and that the information they contain is accurate and reliable.
Acute Hemorrhage Following Gamma Knife Radiosurgery to a Clival Meningioma
Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKS) is an effective therapy for small (<3 cm) meningiomas of the skull base in medically-complex patients for whom open surgery carries an unacceptable risk of morbidity and mortality. While infrequent, hemorrhagic events after GKS do occur. To date, nine cases of intratumoral hemorrhage after GKS for meningiomas have been reported in the literature, with eight occurring in a delayed fashion.
Prevention of Complications Related to Patient Prone Positioning during Spinal Neurosurgical Care: A Nursing Point of View
Patient positioning on the operating table is an important moment of perioperative nursing care. It is a procedure routinely performed and is often underestimated. The importance of this procedure should never be underestimated because several factors as immobility, time of surgery and synergistic effect of mechanical pressure and anesthesia, con cause tissue damage.
Diagnostic Value of Transforaminal Injections of Steroids in Recurrent Disc Herniations
Although decompression of the nerve root and therefore the improvement of radicular pain is the mainstay of disc surgery, pain may persist or recur despite well-indicated and well-performed surgery. Generally, microdisectomy has been associated with success rates of about 80%. The distinction between low back pain(axial) or radicular leg pain is important.
Clinical Implications of the Rare Anomaly of a Cervical Hemivertebra over a Period of 30 Year
The Occurrences of cervical hemivertebrae are described very infrequently in the literature and are usually diagnosed in the childhood. Commonly they occur in the lumbar and thoracic spine with associated congenital scoliosis. Concerning cervical hemivertebrae just few cases are reported, in which the children were treated by excision of the hemivertebra and fusion of the affected spine level.
