*  Epileptic Seizures May Dissipate After Brain Surgery - ABC News
Emma Kon, 25, made news in the United Kingdom after doctors performed multiple surgeries to remove seven parts of her brain in an effort to and treat a crippling epileptic condition in which she sometimes had 100 seizures each day. Now, about nine months after her treatments, Kon told the UK's Daily Mail that she has had no seizures and is feeling well. While epilepsy experts say that complications from brain surgery usually occur immediately after the operation and that reduced seizure activity is a good sign that a person is in recovery, side effects of drastic brain surgery can arise unexpectedly.

*  New Technology for Intracranial Aneurysms | Brain Blogger
Dr. Demetrius Lopes (a neurosurgeon) and Dr. Thomas Grobelny (a neuroradiologist) from the Neurologic & Orthopedic Institute of Chicago recently performed the first minimally invasive neuroendovascular procedure with a system called the Cordis Enterprise Vascular Reconstruction Device. The patient was a 58 year old woman diagnosed with an aneurysm based on symptoms that included problems maintaining her balance and ringing in her ears.. Neuroendovascular surgery combines the use of an x-ray, catheters, and clotting agents to treat brain and spine diseases that affect blood vessels. Surgeons place catheters into damaged blood vessels and fill the vessels with clotting agents. The procedure is normally performed in a fluoroscopy room instead of an operating room.. The technique that was designed by Dr. Lopes and Dr. Grobelny involves filling the aneurysm (via a catheter) with coils to obstruct blood flow to the aneurysm. In addition to coils, stents (wire mesh) are placed in the blood vessel to ...

*  Plus it
The use of neuromonitoring has become well established in the realm of neurosurgical and orthopedic procedures involving intracranial neurosurgery and spinal surgery. The efficacy of specific modalities, including EEG, SSEP, and TcMEP, has been described in the literature.11 The use of TcMEP for monitoring during microsurgical management of cerebrovascular disease was recently described by Szelenyi et al12,13 and was found to be useful in a treatment group of 119 patients. Kang et al4 reported the clinical utility of TcMEP monitoring in detecting motor dysfunction in a small cohort of patients undergoing surgery for either lesions adjacent to the brain stem or intracranial aneurysms. When it comes to neuroendovascular procedures, reports have tended to focus on SSEP, EEG, and BAER monitoring. Lui et al1 were the first to report a series of 35 patients monitored with SSEP, EEG, and BAER while undergoing endovascular therapy for the treatment of cerebral ...

*  Do No Harm: Stories of Life, Death, and Brain Surgery - 125006581X | Smithsonian.com Store
A New York Times Notable Book of the Year. What is it like to be a brain surgeon? How does it feel to hold someone's life in your hands, to cut into the stuff that creates thought, feeling, and reason? How do you live with the consequences of performing a potentially lifesaving operation when it all goes wrong?. In neurosurgery, more than in any other branch of medicine, the doctor's oath to "do no harm" holds a bitter irony. Operations on the brain carry grave risks. Every day, leading neurosurgeon Henry Marsh must make agonizing decisions, often in the face of great urgency and uncertainty.. If you believe that brain surgery is a precise and exquisite craft, practiced by calm and detached doctors, this gripping, brutally honest account will make you think again. With astonishing compassion and candor, Marsh reveals the fierce joy of operating, the profoundly moving triumphs, the harrowing disasters, the haunting regrets, and the moments of black humor that characterize a brain surgeon's ...

After a short review of the literature the authors present their own cases. They include patients with paroxysmal or continuous high blood pressure due to intracranial tumours, a patient with fits of hemihyperhydrosis and two patients in which brain surgery was followed in one by an ileus paralyticus and in the other by acute gastric erosions and perforations. Nach einer kurzen Besprechung der Literatur, bringen die Verfasser die Analyse des eigenen Krankengutes. Dieses umfaßt mehrere Kranke mit paroxysmaler und fortdauerneder Erhöhung des Blutdruckes als Folge intracranieller Tumoren, einen Fall mit hemihyperhydrosischen Anfällen und zwei Fälle, bei denen der chirurgische Eingriff am Gehirn bei einem von einem Ileus paralyticus und beim anderen von akuten Magen-Erosionen mit Perforation gefolgt war.

*  Mariners pitcher Anthony Vasquez recovering from brain surgery - Seattle Mariners blog
But at least the Seattle Mariners pitching prospect can still live to tell his tales.. The San Antonio, Texas, native underwent emergency brain surgery Friday after he experienced headaches, blurry vision and dizziness while training at the Mariners' complex in Peoria, Ariz. But with 5 1/2 hours on the operating table behind him, the 26-year-old lefty can say he's beaten the odds this time as he recovers from a successful procedure.. "He's a miracle," his father, Rudy, told Greg Johns of MLB.com. "We have a strong faith in Jesus and Anthony's faith has always been strong as well. There's no other way to say it. When the neurosurgeon came out he said, 'Your son should be dead, but he's not.'". Not only is Vasquez still alive, but he's expected to be pitching next spring if all goes according to plan. Doctors advised him that he should refrain from heavy lifting for six to eight weeks after he was released from the hospital Monday. But after that, it'll back to normal for the former 18th-round ...
