Journal of Spine & Neurosurgery is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal and aims to publish the most complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, etc. in all areas of spine & neurosurgery and making them available online freely without any restrictions or any other subscriptions to researchers worldwide.
 
Journal of Spine & Neurosurgery focuses on the topics include Spine Studies, Spinal Surgery, Spinal Injuries & Fractures, Neurobiology, Neurological Disorders, Neurosurgery, Neuro-immunology.
 
The Journal is using Editorial Manager System for quality in review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking systems. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of Journal of Spine & Neurosurgery or outside experts; at least two independent reviewers approval followed by editor approval is required for acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system, hopefully to publication. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process.

 Extraneural Soft Tissue Metastasis in a Child with Anaplastic Ependymoma

We present the case of a 5 year old boy who presented to us with complaints of worsening headaches, vomiting, drowsiness and weight loss. He also had difficulty maintaining balance and fell down frequently. Examination revealed elevated blood pressure, sluggish pupils and bilateral grade 1 papilledema. Imaging of the brain showed a mass in the fourth ventricle causing non-communicating hydrocephalus. The mass was excised and histopathology showed features of anaplastic ependymoma.

 Evolution of Adverse Events on Ct-Scan after Use of Rhbmp-2 in Plif Surgery

In this prospective nonrandomized trial, our objective was to assess the clinical and radiological effects of using rhBMP-2 and absorbable collagen carrier (inductOs™) in conjunction with PEEK PLIF cages (Telamon) for one-level instrumented fusions, after 2 years. Additional CT-scans were taken at 3 years.

Surgical Strategy for a Retro-Odontoid Pseudotumor

Retro-odontoid pseudotumors that are not associated with rheumatoid arthritis or hemodialysis are clinically rare. A pseudotumor is a non-neoplastic mass in the retro-odontoid region that can occur in elderly people. Retro-odontoid pseudotumors are regarded as non-neoplastic masses that arise as a result of instability of the atlantoaxial joint. However, Retro-odontoid pseudotumor has occasionally been reported without instability on dynamic radiography.

Hemorrhagic Paraganglioma of the Cauda Equina: Case Report and Review of the Magnetic Resonance Imaging Features

Cauda equina paragangliomas are rare tumors and are known to be highly vascular. Most patients are middle-aged adult males that present with non-specific symptoms of chronic lumbar back pain. We report a patient with acute cauda equina syndrome caused by a hemorrhagic cauda equina paraganglioma. Intraoperatively a hypervascular intradural extramedullary tumor was encountered and completely excised by first performing circumferential microsurgical devascularization.

Role of Posterolateral Distractive Fusion of Lumbar Spine: Clinical and Radiographic Results

The diagnosis of painful degenerative disc disease remains one of the most controversial topics in the spine literature. The pathodynamics of degeneration is loss of disc height, which leads to facet displacement and arthrosis with resulting entrapment of the nerve roots in the compromised nerve root canal.

Neuroendoscopic Treatment of Intracranial Tuberculoma: Case Report

Intracranial tuberculoma rarely are seen in industrialized countries and represent only a small part of all intracranial space-occupying lesions. In most cases, conservative therapy provides good results. When treatment is not effective or lesion enlarged, surgery is recommended. Role of surgery in patients with intracranial tuberculomas is not yet established. This report describes a case of symptomatic intracranial tuberculoma and minimally invasive surgical option of treatment with ventricular neuroendoscopic aspiration.

Clinical and Radiological Results of the DISCOVERTM Cervical Disc Replacement with Minimum Two-Year Follow-Up

Cervical artificial disc replacement (ADR) has the potential of preventing adjacent segment degeneration. Although data pertaining to different cervical ADR exist, little is known about the functional outcome of DISCOVER ADR.
