Preoperative opioid use is widespread and associated with worse patient reported outcomes following spine surgery. To calculate a threshold preoperative morphine equianalgesic (MEA) dose beyond which patients are less likely to achieve the minimum clinically important difference (MCID) following elective surgery for degenerative spine disease. Minimum and maximum MEA doses exist, between which increasing opioid dose is associated with decreased ability to achieve clinically meaningful improvement following spine surgery. Patients with preoperative MEA dose exceeding 29 mg/d, the lower limit of the 95% credible interval for the mean MEA dose above which patients exhibit significantly decreased achievement of MCID, may be considered for preoperative opioid weaning.

Only a minority of intracranial aneurysms rupture to cause subarachnoid hemorrhage. To test the hypothesis that unruptured aneurysms have different characteristics and risk factor profiles compared to ruptured aneurysms. Patients were recruited with unruptured aneurysms or aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhages at 22 UK hospitals between 2011 and 2014. Demographic, clinical, and imaging data were collected using standardized case report forms. Risk factors were compared using multivariable logistic regression.

Pediatric ependymoma is the third most common brain tumor found in children. Up to 66% are found in the fourth ventricle. The video focuses on displaying relevant surgical anatomy and discussing aspects of operative technique. We highlight the benefits of a preplanned staged approach for large posterior fossa lesions to achieve the best possible outcome.
