Novel use of an image-guided supraorbital craniotomy via an eyebrow approach for the repair of a delayed traumatic orbital encephalocele: illustrative cases

the left side with a GCS score of 7T. The right pupil was reactive and 2 mm, and the left pupil was ovoid and unreactive. A CT of the head revealed small bilateral subdural hematomas, a right frontal contusion, and bifrontal skull fractures with a right orbital roof blowout fracture with herniation of the superior rectus muscle and brain through the orbital defect. A concomitant right lower-extremity fracture that would ultimately require surgical fixation was also present. A left frontal fiber optic intracranial pressure monitor was placed uneventfully on his

Vacuum-assisted scalp repositioning: a novel temporizing approach to acute sinking skin flap syndrome. Illustrative cases

. Outcome Shortly after the sunken flap was adjusted, the patient experienced a tonic-clonic seizure. The external cast and wound vacuum were promptly removed. Repeat head imaging revealed a new 3-mm acute subdural hematoma without mass effect, with near-complete resolution of the previously observed paradoxical brain herniation ( Fig. 3 ). The patient was intubated for airway protection and transferred to the intensive care unit (ICU) for monitoring, including long-term electroencephalography (EEG). FIG. 3 Case 2.

Management of a recurrent spinal arachnoid cyst presenting as arachnoiditis in the setting of spontaneous spinal subarachnoid hemorrhage: illustrative case

Omar Hussain, Randall Treffy, Hope M Reecher, Andrew L DeGroot, Peter Palmer, Mohamad Bakhaidar, and Saman Shabani

Spinal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SSAH) can present from a multitude of etiologies. Most cases are posttraumatic or iatrogenic in nature, whereas few are spontaneous due to an underlying vascular malformation or coagulopathy. 1 A potential pathogenic mechanism for SSAH can involve the rupture of vasculature within the subdural or subarachnoid space, potentially after a posttraumatic increase in intraabdominal or thoracic pressure. 2 The remaining etiological category is spontaneous SSAH, for which several case series of spinal subdural hematomas of
