The authors sought to analyze the residual connections formed by the temporal stem as a cause for seizure recurrence following endoscopic vertical interhemispheric hemispherotomy and to review and compare lateral approach (perisylvian) with vertical approach surgical techniques to highlight the anatomical factors responsible for residual connections.

The role of endonasal endoscopic approach for pathologies in the paediatric population is evolving and has still not been accepted as standard of care in neurosurgery. It represents a challenge in ter...
Traditionally, early esophageal cancer (i.e., cancer limited to the mucosa or superficial submucosa) was managed surgically; the gastroenterologist's role was primarily to diagnose the tumor. Over the...
Trigeminal schwannomas are rare neoplasms with an incidence of less than 1% that require a comprehensive surgical strategy. These tumors can occur anywhere along the path of the trigeminal nerve, capa...
The infratemporal fossa (ITF) and parapharyngeal space are anatomical regions that can be challenging to access without the use of complex, cosmetically disfiguring approaches. With advances in endosc...
Management of biliary adverse events (BAEs) after biliodigestive anastomosis is challenging. We propose a new endoscopic approach to improve BAEs in this clinical setting.
The aim of this study is to compare the outcomes of endoscopic pre lacrimal recess approach, canine fossa approach and middle meatal antrostomy approach regarding: 1. Assessment of the ...
Aim of this study is to assess the efficacy of endoscopic trans-maxillary surgical approach versus traditional trans-orbital surgical approach (control group) in orbital blow out fractures...
Purpose: Total endoscopic thyroidectomy including oral approach and breast approach has excellent cosmetic and several functional results. Many patients, especially women, undergoing thyro...
Patients with posterior calcaneal deformity may presented by many clinical data associated with retrocalcaneal bursitis which occurs due to the deformity this clinical complaining include ...
The purpose of this research study is to test whether a Computerized Rotational Head Impulse Test-Vertical (crHIT-vertical) is able to reliably evaluate the vertical semicircular canals in...
The length of the face determined by the distance of separation of jaws. Occlusal vertical dimension (OVD or VDO) or contact vertical dimension is the lower face height with the teeth in centric occlusion. Rest vertical dimension (VDR) is the lower face height measured from a chin point to a point just below the nose, with the mandible in rest position. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p250)
Changing an operative procedure from an endoscopic surgical procedure to an open approach during the INTRAOPERATIVE PERIOD.
Fiberoptic endoscopy designed for duodenal observation and cannulation of VATER'S AMPULLA, in order to visualize the pancreatic and biliary duct system by retrograde injection of contrast media. Endoscopic (Vater) papillotomy (SPHINCTEROTOMY, ENDOSCOPIC) may be performed during this procedure.
The act or fact of grasping the meaning, nature, or importance of; understanding. (American Heritage Dictionary, 4th ed) Includes understanding by a patient or research subject of information disclosed orally or in writing.
Incision of Oddi's sphincter or Vater's ampulla performed by inserting a sphincterotome through an endoscope (DUODENOSCOPE) often following retrograde cholangiography (CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY, ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE). Endoscopic treatment by sphincterotomy is the preferred method of treatment for patients with retained or recurrent bile duct stones post-cholecystectomy, and for poor-surgical-risk patients that have the gallbladder still present.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
