Gauging the feasibility of cost-sharing and medical student interest groups to reduce interview costs

and is relatively isolated to smartphone-based coordination. Although Gmail is the most popularly used email address among students of interview age, typically institutional email addresses are used on the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS), thus complicating Google groups. A significant percentage of those who had interviewed preferred an anonymous, email identification–only, internet chat room. Ideally, each program could create an optional private chat room between interviewees for a given interview date. Alternatively, one large chat room for all

Editorial. Ethical nuances and medicolegal vulnerabilities in robotic neurosurgery

George Chandy Vilanilam and Easwer Hariharan Venkat

smartphone applications, new technology has an aura of sophistication. We subconsciously believe that the advantages of new technology outshine the accepted old methods, despite scarce evidence to support this view. 14 The complexity of new surgical technology creates a bias conferring more credibility and legitimacy on it, more so, because technical algorithms are often considered to be beyond the realm of surgical sciences. 8 , 14 As the extent of robotic autonomy is evolving quickly, several ethics concerns and medicolegal standards need reexamination. The concept of

left wrist and fingers remained flexed. He would use the tenodesis effect of wrist extension and flexion to aid in grasping and releasing, respectively. However, he was able to play with a smartphone by grasping it with the second and third fingers and using his thumb on the screen. His neck had a normal range of motion without pain, but the physical therapy team noted that the patient had impaired neck strength. He was able to mount, ride, and dismount a tricycle on his own and steer with his hands. The patient was using a thoracolumbosacral orthosis brace because

Socioeconomic patient benefits of a pediatric neurosurgery telemedicine clinic

Kelsey Hayward, Sabrina H. Han, Alexander Simko, Hector E. James, and Philipp R. Aldana

. 1 Although the no-show rate for underinsured/uninsured patients in the present study was 56%, this rate is similar to that seen in our own in-person pediatric neurosurgery clinic (unpublished results) and that seen in other pediatric clinics. 8 Thus, we believe that if a telemedicine option did not exist for this population, they would probably not receive any elective care for their conditions. Telemedicine technology is constantly evolving with changing resources, such as smartphones, tablets, and others. These handheld devices were not used in this clinic and

passed through the open slot into the ventricle. After catheter placement, the clip secures the catheter to avoid inadvertent catheter manipulation during tunneling and closure. This design enables accurate catheter placement while minimizing interruptions to the existing procedural workflow ( Video 1 ). While other technologies have been developed, there remain practical factors limiting their widespread adoption. Neuronavigation, such as with the AxiEM Electromagnetic StealthStation (Medtronic), smartphone-navigated apps, and 3D tracking systems, has been found to

A multidisciplinary team offers a personalized welcome and individual consultations (e.g., neurosurgery, gynecology, dermatology, image consulting, occupational medicine). Group workshops and conferences for young people and parents are also organized. Digital tools have also been created (the “Noa” application for smartphones and a website, ) to facilitate the daily life of these patients (personalized alerts for scheduling appointments and medication

Extended reality platform for minimally invasive endoscopic evacuation of deep-seated intracerebral hemorrhage: illustrative case

of the deep-seated IPH using the MIS endoscopic technique without creating worsening or new deficits, facilitated the patient’s recovery, and shortened his hospital stay. Several studies have used 3D modeling and/or AR for the surgical treatment of ICHs. In one study, AR technology facilitated accuracy and precision on hematoma positioning and puncture trajectory in 25 patients. 23 Using a smartphone, a 3D model of the patient’s CT scan was overlaid on the patient’s head to preoperatively plan trajectories to ICHs. During this application, no other imaging was
