Kypho-scoliosis surgery

Kyphoscoliosis is an abnormal curve of the spine on two planes: the coronal plane, or side to side, and the saggital plane, or back to front.

Occipital trans tentorial surgery

Tentorial meningiomas represent about 5% of intracranial meningiomas. This article reviews our recent institutional series of patients with tentorial meningiomas, proposes a simplified classification and analyzes postoperative evolution.

Cervical rib

A cervical rib in humans is an extra rib which arises from seventh cervical vertebra.
Their presence is a congenital abnormality
located above the normal first rib. A cervical rib is estimated to
occur in 0.2% (1 in 500 people)
to 0.5%


A spinal tumor is an abnormal mass of tissue within or surrounding the spinal cord and/or spinal column. These cells grow and multiply uncontrollably, seemingly unchecked by the
mechanisms that control normal


Intradural extramedullary (IDEM) tumors account for about 60% of the intraspinal tumors, and include schwannomas, meningiomas .
(25%; incidence rate, 0.32).
These need to be
treated surgically.


This study presents the results of 57 stereotactic brain biopsies using a frameless neuronavigation system, the Stealth Station. The supratentorial lesions had a mean diameter of 33 mm and a mean distance of 32 mm from the entry point at brain surface.


Minimally invasive spine surgery is an upcoming and exciting advance in the management of spinal problems. it includes endoscopic as well as no- scalpel techniques.


Percutaneous Decompression (Nucleoplasty) is an option for sciatic nerve pain or spinal stenosis is to remove the disc tissue that is pressing on the nerves. In percutaneous disc decompression, instead of an incision.


There are two common methods used to repair an aneurysm: Clipping is done during an open craniotomy. Endovascular repair (surgery), most often using a coil or coiling and stenting (mesh tubes), is a less invasive and more common way to treat aneurysms.
