From time to time on Neurosurgery Blog, you will see us cross-posting or linking to items from other places when we believe they hit the mark on an issue. Since we are smack-dab in the middle of our focus on topics related to pediatric neurosurgery we wanted to bring attention to some articles which recently appeared in the Journal of Neurosurgery (JNS), a monthly peer-reviewed medical journal covering all aspects of neurosurgery. The articles below cover a variety of #PedsNeurosurgery topics, including concussion, hydrocephalus and lumbar disc herniation.
- Effect of concussion history on symptom burden and recovery following pediatric sports-related concussion;
- Endoscopic third ventriculostomy and choroid plexus cauterization in infant hydrocephalus: a prospective study by the Hydrocephalus Clinical Research Network; and
- Tubular approach to minimally invasive microdiscectomy for pediatric lumbar disc herniation.
In addition to these pieces, the JNS also publishes the Journal of Neurosurgery: Pediatrics every month which is devoted to the publication of original works relating primarily to pediatric neurosurgery.
