moyamoya disease state that patients with underlying disease can be diagnosed with moyamoya disease in a broad sense. 1 To date, many studies have identified the relationships of these genetic variants with clinical presentation and outcomes in patients with moyamoya disease. 6–10 According to these previous studies, patients with homozygous variants of RNF213 p.R4810K are generally regarded to have more severe disease than patients with heterozygous variants or wild-type RNF213 . However, most previous studies analyzed mixed groups of adult-onset and pediatric-onset

or who cannot tolerate pharmacological side effects. Despite the safety and efficacy of surgical therapies for TN in adults, studies of pediatric TN remain limited. 5 We report our experience with 3 cases of pediatric TN refractory to medical management who were successfully treated with microvascular decompression (MVD). We also perform a systematic review of literature-reported pediatric-onset TN, analyzing demographics, diagnostic practices, and complications in this population. Methods Case Series Approval for this study was obtained from the IRB

The feasibility and safety of using sublaminar polyester bands in hybrid spinal constructs in children and transitional adults for neuromuscular scoliosis

Sohum K. Desai, Christina Sayama, Daniel Vener, Alison Brayton, Valentina Briceño, Thomas G. Luerssen, and Andrew Jea

. In this paper we report on the treatment of 21 pediatric and transitional adult patients with neuromuscular scoliosis who underwent posterior instrumented fusion with hybrid hook–screw–sublaminar polyester band constructs. Transitional adults were patients older than 18 years of age with a spinal disorder of pediatric onset, such as spina bifida. The flexibility and gentleness of polyester and decreased contact stresses at the bone–band interface due to increased surface area for bone contact makes this type of instrumentation ideal for the anatomically smaller and

Trigeminal neuralgia caused by a trigeminocerebellar artery

gradient echo imaging and MR angiography. In the present case, further 3D fusion images were obtained because how and which arteries from the distal part of the BA conflicted with the nerve root remained unclear. The present case demonstrated the high reliability of 3D fusion imaging because the preoperative 3D fusion image perfectly matched the operative findings. The pediatric onset of trigeminal neuralgia in the present case may be an important clinical feature of the trigeminocerebellar artery. The age of 16 years is very early for the onset of trigeminal neuralgia

Statistical Software, Release 10). Results Population Characteristics The baseline characteristics of the study population are described in Table 1 . The median age at seizure onset was 10 years; overall, 66% of patients had a pediatric onset (< 18 years old) ( Fig. 1 ). The median age at the time of surgery was 21 years, and ranged from 4 to 46 years. Of the population studied, 20 patients (40%) were 18 years of age or younger at the time of surgery. The median duration between seizure onset and surgery was 8 years. Forty-six patients (92%) had a history of
