Results of the XVIIth Meeting of the Siberian Association of Neurosurgeons “SibNeuro”.

The XVIIth meeting of the Siberian Association of Neurosurgeons “SibNeuro” took place at the premises of the Federal Neurosurgical Center. The meeting was dedicated to spinal neurosurgery issues.

Vladimir S.Klimov, MD, neurosurgeon, the Head of the spinal division of the Federal Neurosurgical Center (Novosibirsk) was the Chairman of the meeting.

Scientific program of the meeting was opened by the report of Yuriy V.Kushel, MD, neurosurgeon of the pediatric division of the Academician N.N.Burdenko Research Institute of Neurosurgery (Moscow) on “Surgical treatment of intramedullary tumors”. The report contained information about frequency of occurrence of intramedullary tumors, special nature of surgery depending on localization and structure of mass lesion and also about long-term functional outcome. Dr.Kushel presented specific character of diagnostics and surgical treatment of intramedullary tumors in children; he also spoke about tactics and specificity of metastatic lesions of spinal cord.

The next report on the “Peculiarities of intraoperational neurophysiological monitoring applications in surgical treatment of intradural tumors of spinal cord” was presented by Vladislav V.Kelmakov, neurosurgeon of spinal division of the Federal Neurosurgical Center (Novosibirsk) and Nina V.Chischina, neuro-physiologist of the Federal Neurosurgical Center (Novosibirsk).

Dr.Kelmakov told about results of patients’ treatment with intra- and extra medullar tumors being operated in the spinal division of the Federal Neurosurgical Center (Novosibirsk). The author showed peculiarities of application of intraoperational neurophysiological monitoring and also the possibilities of this method with the goal of eradication of tumor containing neurological status at pre-operation level. Dr.Chischina paid particular attention to the reasons of motor evoked potentials connected either with surgical or not only non-surgical factors, peculiarities of anesthesia in patients with neurophysiological monitoring, some contra-indications for this method’s application and also complications connected with intraoperational application of neurophysiological monitoring. Problems and ways of their solving connected with difficulties of obtaining motor evoked potentials were reflected in the report.
   
At the end Dr.Klimov presented his report about application of pre-operational embolization in patients with tumoral spine damages. He covered problems and peculiarities of treatment of spinal tumors. The importance is evident and it is connected with some problems that a surgeon faces intraoperationally. The report contained information about advantages of application of pre-operational embolization of hypervascularized tumors allowing minimizing risks caused by significant intraoperational blood loss and further treatment connected with these risks, shortening duration of operation increasing radicality and making better treatment results.  

Specialists from Novosibirsk and its region, Altai and Kemerovo regions participated in the event.

Forthcoming events were announced during the meeting: drilling-course on April 28 and the next meeting of the Association dedicated to epilepsy – April 29.
