Summary of "Biopsy and ablation of an H3K27 glioma using the skull-mounted Smartframe® device: a technical case report."

Clearpoint Smartframe® is an MRI compatible stereotactic system often used to perform MRI-guided biopsies. The system is typically mounted on the scalp through screws that pierce the skin and penetrate the outer-table of the cranium. However, the frame can also be configured to be mounted directly onto the skull.

The role of F-fluoro-ethyl-tyrosine (FET) PET in the investigation and management of suspected gliomas.

This study aims to investigate the utility of F-FET PET in surgical decision making in suspected glioma. A retrospective review of patients undergoing F-FET PET was performed. Previously published thr...

Microwave ablation followed by immediate biopsy in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer.

To evaluate the efficacy and safety of microwave ablation (MWA) followed by immediate biopsy in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and to clarify whether pathology changes can predict...

International experience in the development of patient-derived xenograft models of diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma.

Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma is the most aggressive form of high grade glioma in children with no effective therapies. There have been no improvements in survival in part due poor understanding of...

Using germline variants to estimate glioma and subtype risks.

Twenty-five single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are associated with glioma risk. We hypothesized that the inclusion of these 25 SNPs with age at diagnosis and sex could predict risk of glioma as we...

The Lowest Effective Dose of Dexmedetomidine in Attenuating the Hemodynamic Responses During Skull Pin Insertion in Patients Undergoing Elective Craniotomy

Skull pins are used to immobilize the head during craniotomy. Fixation of skull pins causes acute hemodynamic changes which may affect cerebral autoregulation and hence cerebral blood flow...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fractures of the skull which may result from penetrating or nonpenetrating head injuries or rarely BONE DISEASES (see also FRACTURES, SPONTANEOUS). Skull fractures may be classified by location (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, BASILAR), radiographic appearance (e.g., linear), or based upon cranial integrity (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, DEPRESSED).

Conducting a biopsy procedure with the aid of a MEDICAL IMAGING modality.

Removal of tissue by vaporization, abrasion, or destruction. Methods used include heating tissue by hot liquids or microwave thermal heating, freezing (CRYOABLATION), chemical ablation, and photoablation with LASERS.

Neoplasms of the base of the skull specifically, differentiated from neoplasms of unspecified sites or bones of the skull (SKULL NEOPLASMS).

A skull fracture characterized by inward depression of a fragment or section of cranial bone, often compressing the underlying dura mater and brain. Depressed cranial fractures which feature open skin wounds that communicate with skull fragments are referred to as compound depressed skull fractures.
