Transcallosal removal of craniopharyngiomas within the third ventricle

Don M. Long and Shelley N. Chou

✓ Six cases of craniopharyngioma located wholly, or largely, within the third ventricle are described; these include four adults with tumors completely within the ventricular system and two children with recurrent tumors primarily within the third ventricle. Four of these patients were operated on by a transcallosal approach. Gross total removal was possible in all patients, but two have suffered recurrence and only one is alive and tumor-free. There were no signs or symptoms present preoperatively that allowed the intraventricular nature of the neoplasm to be correctly diagnosed. Air encephalography provided definitive tumor localization in each case. Three patients died of massive gastrointestinal hemorrhage in the immediate postoperative period. The surgical technique of transcallosal approach for removal of these neoplasms is described in detail.

Brain death

a clinical and pathological study

A. Mohandas and Shelley N. Chou

✓ “Brain death” was analyzed in 25 moribund patients with regard to the clinical evaluation of the patients and the significance of segmental reflexes and electroencephalographic recordings. It is concluded that a state of brain death in a patient with known irreparable pathology can be established solely on clinical grounds.

Spectrum of the hangman's fracture

Edward L. Seljeskog and Shelley N. Chou

✓ The authors review their experience in managing 26 cases of “hangman's fracture.” The basic mechanism of injury was hyperextension of the upper cervical spine. Radiographic studies revealed a spectrum of injury beginning with the classical hangman's fracture and progressing to the simple C-2 laminar-pedicle fracture. Appreciation of the fracture instability will dictate the method and duration of fracture treatment. Management by a closed, nonoperative means resulted in solid union of the bone in all fully treated cases, with a minimum of morbidity.
