 Hemangioblastoma of the Filum Terminale Resected with the Aid of Intraoperative Indocyanine Green Angiography in a Patient Affected by Von Hippel Lindau

Hemangioblastomas are benign tumours affecting the central nervous system (CNS) as sporadic case or as manifestation of von Hippel Lindau disease (VHL), a neoplastic multistemic autosomal dominant syndrome predisposing to develop CNS and visceral lesions. Hemangioblastomas are predominantly originating in the cerebellum and in the cervical and thoracic spinal cord; localization at the cauda equina and especially at the filum terminale are very rare.

 Adjacent Segment Diseases Following Expansive Cervical Laminoplasty: A Report of Five Cases

Expansive laminoplasty has become the gold standard for surgical treatment of cervical multilevel compressive myelopathy. The procedure preserves the motion segment, and it has been believed hitherto that adjacent segment disease would not occur following the procedure. We report the adjacent segment disease following expansive laminoplasty for compressive cervical myelopathy and postulate on the possible pathophysiologic mechanism of the disease.

 A Case of Adenocarcinoma Metastasis in Meningioma Mimicking Cystic Mass

The most common intratumoral metastasis in brain is in meningiomas.Preoperative diagnosis of metastasis in a meningioma is very difficult. A 61-year old male patient presented to the Emergency Service with loss of consciousness. MR depicted a lesion with cyctic and solid components in the left frontal lobe.

 Local Sagittal Alignment after Indirect Reduction and 2-Level Short-Segment Pedicle Screw Fixation of Thoracolumbar Burst Fractures

The treatment of thoracolumbar burst fractures with short-segment pedicle screw fixation alone has been associated with progressive loss of correction and instrumentation failure. However, some burst fractures can be treated successfully by this technique without correction loss or implant failure.
