Manuscript Title: The Use of Vycor™ Tubular Retractors in the Management of Deep Brain Lesions: A Review of Current Studies.

Traditional manual retraction to access deep-seated brain lesions has been associated with complications related to vascular compromise of cerebral tissue. Various techniques have been developed over ...

Use of Tubular Retractors for Minimally Invasive Resection of Deep-Seated Cavernomas.

Cavernomas located in subcortical or eloquent locations are difficult lesions to access safely. Tubular retractors, which distribute retraction pressure radially, have been increasingly employed succe...

Stereotactic-guided dilatable endoscopic port surgery for deep-seated brain tumors: technical report with comparative case series analysis.

Deep-seated brain tumors are often best treated with primary surgical excision. Traditional microsurgical techniques may cause retraction injury and extensive brain dissection. To mitigate this risk, ...

The Impact of MRI T1 Hypointense Brain Lesions on Cerebral Deep Gray Matter Volume Measures in Multiple Sclerosis.

Deep gray matter (DGM) atrophy has been shown at early stages of multiple sclerosis (MS) and reported as an informative marker of cognitive dysfunction and clinical progression. Therefore, accurate me...

Identification of the presence of ischaemic stroke lesions by means of texture analysis on brain magnetic resonance images.

The differential quantification of brain atrophy, white matter hyperintensities (WMH) and stroke lesions is important in studies of stroke and dementia. However, the presence of stroke lesions is usua...

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Retrospective Outcomes Study

The primary objective of this study is to characterize real-world clinical outcomes of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) using retrospective review of de-identified patient records.

Breast Ultrasound Image Reviewed With Assistance of Deep Learning Algorithms

This study evaluates a second review of ultrasound images of breast lesions using an interactive "deep learning" (or artificial intelligence) program developed by Samsung Medical Imaging, ...

Clinical and Radiographic Evaluation of Nano Silver Fluoride Versus Calcium Hydroxide in Indirect Pulp Treatment of Deep Carious Second Primary Molars, Randomized Clinical Trial

The management of deep carious lesions approaching a healthy pulp is considered a challenge to the dental practitioner. The conventional treatment of deep carious lesions requires the remo...

Effects of Deep Brain Stimulation of the Dentate Nucleus on Cerebellar Ataxia

Cerebellar ataxias are a group of disorders caused by cerebellar affections, for which currently no specific treatment is available. Some limited studies verified the effects of cerebellar...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Management review designed to evaluate efficiency and to identify areas in need of management improvement within the institution in order to ensure effectiveness in meeting organizational goals.

The concurrent or retrospective review by practicing physicians or other health professionals of the quality and efficiency of patient care practices or services ordered or performed by other physicians or other health professionals (From The Facts On File Dictionary of Health Care Management, 1988).

Review of the medical necessity of hospital or other health facility admissions, upon or within a short time following an admission, and periodic review of services provided during the course of treatment.

Disease involving the common PERONEAL NERVE or its branches, the deep and superficial peroneal nerves. Lesions of the deep peroneal nerve are associated with PARALYSIS of dorsiflexion of the ankle and toes and loss of sensation from the web space between the first and second toe. Lesions of the superficial peroneal nerve result in weakness or paralysis of the peroneal muscles (which evert the foot) and loss of sensation over the dorsal and lateral surface of the leg. Traumatic injury to the common peroneal nerve near the head of the FIBULA is a relatively common cause of this condition. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, p31)

Formal programs for assessing drug prescription against some standard. Drug utilization review may consider clinical appropriateness, cost effectiveness, and, in some cases, outcomes. Review is usually retrospective, but some analysis may be done before drugs are dispensed (as in computer systems which advise physicians when prescriptions are entered). Drug utilization review is mandated for Medicaid programs beginning in 1993.
