Neurosurgery’s cerebrovascular, pediatric, and spine video collections have been updated to include supplemental videos from Neurosurgery’s most recent articles. See below for links to individual collections, or click here to see all of Neurosurgery‘s supplemental videos.
This video summarizes a dural splitting craniocervical decompression procedure for Chiari I without syringomyelia. The goal of surgery for Chiari 1 malformation is to restore normal cerebral spinal fluid dynamics at the craniocervical junction. Traditionally, shrinkage or even resection of the cerebellar tonsils has been advocated. More recently, simple duraplasty without manipulation of the intradural contents or even extradural decompression have been undertaken. A dural splitting decompression procedure in a 17-year-old male who presented with medically refractory, unremitting and progressive suboccipital headaches is described.
This video demonstrates the stepwise dissection of the superficial temporal artery. Traditionally, dissection of the STA involves a direct cutdown on the artery after marking the course of the artery on the skin with the help of aDoppler ultrasound probe. The authors describe a method that takes advantage of the position of the STA superficial to the temporal fascia.
