The relative efficacy of 3 different freehand frontal ventriculostomy trajectories: a prospective neuronavigation-assisted simulation study

Matthew A. Kirkman, William Muirhead, and Nick Sevdalis

, with reported safety, efficacy, and feasibility outcomes, and this is the subject of 2 ongoing randomized trials incorporating smartphone-assisted technology. 15 , 16 In addition to its burgeoning use in the clinical setting, particularly in patients with small or dysmorphic ventricles, image guidance is being increasingly used as a training tool for ventriculostomy in residents 7 , 8 although evidence that the training translates into improved patient outcomes is currently lacking. However, training with the use of image-guidance technology may increase

Building an electronic health record integrated quality of life outcomes registry for spine surgery

by developing an application that might be used by smartphone to facilitate QOL capture. One of the benefits of a less integrated approach to develop an outcomes registry is the scalability of the platform. The MyHealth and Epic code for developing questionnaires is easily sharable and may be used at other centers to capture the same outcome metrics. One opportunity for further development would be to have multiple discrete centers capturing outcome metrics using this platform. A dashboard running at each center would allow local review of quality and outcomes

discriminating between patients with high and extremely high disability. In these cases, expressing a patient's OFI as a T-score (that is, as deviation from the normal population mean) is superior to using the BSS, a 4-tier categorical variable. Both measurements are provided by the smartphone “TUG” app, which we developed and which is available free of charge in multiple languages at the Apple App Store ( and Google Play ( Conclusions The data

Job satisfaction, engagement, and burnout in the population of orthopedic surgeon and neurosurgeon trainees in mainland China

Jinli Yu, Fei Zou, and Yirui Sun

approved by the Chinese Clinical Trial Registry (ChiCTR1800014762). Between June 2017 and October 2018, under the support of the East Institution of China Academy of Information and Communications Technology, the official orthopedics continuing education platform AllinMD ( ), and the national neurosurgical continuing education platform “Neurosurgery News” ( ), an online survey was conducted via both smartphone applications and website visitation. Orthopedic and neurosurgical trainees working in tertiary (level III) and regional (level II

fields of neurosurgery and neuroscience. 8–11 This computer technology provides a real-time updated 3D virtual model of anatomical details, overlaid on the real surgical field. Recent innovations have increased access to this technology through smartphones, adapted goggles, and operative microscopes. 12–16 Intraoperative visualization of major ventricular and periventricular anatomical landmarks during brain tumor removal is critical for their preservation and thus the patient's postoperative clinical outcome. These landmarks include the periventricular vessels

face-to-face meeting was held in December 2017 with 14 participants in attendance. All participants used an anonymous audience response system (Poll Everywhere) to enter their responses to statements via their personal smartphone or computer. Responses were tallied and projected in real time to the participants. Statements that had already reached consensus were briefly reviewed, whereas statements near consensus were discussed in detail and modified to try to achieve consensus. Finalized statements with ≥ 80% consensus were then incorporated into a consensus
