Cruveilhier plexus: An anatomical study and a potential cause of failed treatments for occipital neuralgia and muscular and facet denervation procedures: Laboratory investigation
Object. The nerves of the posterior neck are often encountered by the neurosurgeon and are sometimes the focus of denervation procedures for muscular, joint, or nervous pathologies. One collection of fibers in this region ...
Endoscopically assisted decompression of the suprascapular nerve in the supraspinous fossa: A cadaveric feasibility study. Laboratory investigation
Object. The suprascapular nerve may become entrapped as it travels deep to the suprascapular ligament, necessitating decompression. The present study was performed to verify the feasibility of a minimally invasive, ...
External landmarks for identifying the drainage site of the vein of Labbé : Application to neurosurgical procedures
Introduction. The vein of Labbé is an important structure of the lateral cortical surface. However, to date, studies aimed at providing external landmarks for aiding in its identification have been scant. Therefore, the ...
Fourth ventriculoceles with extracranial extension: One case report
Encephaloceles involving only the herniated fourth ventricle are exceedingly rare. We report a case of such a cranial malformation and review the literature regarding these malformations and their potential embryological ...

An unusual finding of the posterior cranial fossa: One case report
Variations of the posterior cranial fossa can alter surgical approaches to this region and pose a definite hazard if not considered. Inadvertent tearing of these large structures can result in morbidity and even mortality. ...
Bilateral accessory middle cerebral arteries associated with an aneurysm of the anterior circulation
An accessory middle cerebral artery is one variation of the intracranial vasculature that may be a source of misinterpretation by clinicians dealing with cerebrovascular diseases. We report a case of an elderly female found ...
Massive diminution of the cervical spine: One case report
The authors report a 13-year-old female with shunted hydrocephalus who when evaluated for neck pain, was found to have not only fusion of cervical vertebrae but significant diminution of the cervical spine. Following our ...
