    Abstract [+]

    Differentiating between cystic lesions of pituitary gland may be challenging. Usual differentials are cystic pituitary adenoma (cPA) and Rathke’s cleft cyst (RCC). Diagnostic certainty of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is limited in the absence of usual suggestive features. Furthermore, RCC can co-exist with approximately 2% of pituitary adenomas. Over time, these cystic lesions may remain static, resolve spontaneously, or result in symptomatology relating to mass effect and/or hormonal disruption. In cases of an asymptomatic lesion being found incidentally, little is known about how it may progress, raising question whether to proceed with surgical management or follow-up. We a present case of a spontaneously resolving pituitary cystic lesion with imaging features more suggestive of cPA than RCC, for which watchful waiting proved a successful treatment strategy. The current case serves as a reminder that small cystic lesions can be followed-up with spontaneous resolution and should be offered active treatment only when clinically required.

    Abstract [+]

    A patient-centered approach is reasonable in candidates for carotid revascularization. The patient and their physician should discuss the available treatment options, including revascularization (either carotid artery stenting (CAS) or carotid endarterectomy (CEA)) with their physician. There remains uncertainty regarding the value proposition for revascularization (either CEA or CAS) in asymptomatic patients as a strategy to prevent stroke. Investigation continues into characterizing high-risk carotid plaque subsets, but until that data is available, physicians and patients should continue to strive to achieve the best outcomes with the information that is currently available. The other consideration in asymptomatic patients is that there is a cumulative benefit to revascularization that is dependent on life expectancy. However, the magnitude of the benefit of revascularization, over the longer term in the setting of multifactorial medical therapy, including statins, is not known.

About the Journal

The term “Neuro” in medicine indicates a nerve or the nervous system. Neuro – Open Journal (NOJ) aims to publish articles on all the topics under neurobiology to neurological disorders, its treatment and all the related aspects of the subject.

The most common neurological disorders include Dementia, Epilepsy, Headache disorders, Multiple sclerosis, neuroinfections, Neurological disorders associated with malnutrition, Pain associated with neurological disorders, Parkinson’s disease, Stroke, Traumatic brain injuries, etc.

Neurological disorders topic includes classification and diagnosis; risk factors and etiology; course and outcome; mortality and disability; a burden on patients’ families; management, treatment, and rehabilitation; the cost of care and delivery; gaps in the treatment; policies; research; training and education.

However, Openventio aims to widespread all the detailed matters related to the neurological system through its Open Journal to all the scientific community for its welfare and control.
