The purpose of this update is to review the literature following publication of the original guidelines and to update the recommendations as appropriate. Based on the availability of new literature, the current guideline is a major update resulting in modification and update of prior recommendations as well as an updated discussion. J.

CNS Guidelines Podcast_Patients with Thoracolumbar Spine Trauma:Operative and Nonoperative Treatment

The thoracic and lumbar (“thoracolumbar”) spine are the most commonly injured region of the spine in blunt trauma. Trauma of the thoracolumbar spine is frequently associated with spinal cord injury and other visceral and bony injuries. Prolonged pain and disability after thoracolumbar trauma present a significant burden on patients and society. Ultimately, this clinical guideline was created to improve patient care by outlining the appropriate information gathering and decision-making processes involved in the evaluation and treatment of patients with thoracolumbar spine trauma. The surgical management of these patients often takes place under a variety of circumstances and by various clinicians. This guideline was created as an educational tool to guide qualified physicians through a series of diagnostic and treatment decisions in an effort to improve the quality and efficiency of care. J.

CNS Guidelines Podcast_Neuroablative Procedures for Patients with Cancer Pain

Managing cancer pain, once it is refractory to conventional treatment, continues to challenge caregivers committed to serving those who are suffering from a malignancy. Although neuromodulation has a role in the treatment of cancer pain for some patients, these therapies may not be suitable for all patients. Therefore, neuroablative procedures, which were once a mainstay in treating intractable cancer pain, are again on the rise. This guideline serves as a systematic review of the literature of the outcomes following neuroablative procedures. J. Bradley Elder, MD Ahmed M. Raslan, MD Jason M. Schwalb, MD Mayur Sharma, MD

CNS Guidelines Podcast_Metastatic Brain Tumors: The Role of Surgical Resection

Surgery is recommended for brain metastases that are large, have significant perilesional edema, result in neurological deficits, and present with uncertain pathology. In addition, surgery provides tissue diagnosis, when needed. Smaller targeted craniotomies and an emphasis on minimizing postoperative deficits have led to faster operations and discharge a few days after a craniotomy. Given the limitations of radiation therapy and other targeted therapies, surgery plays a critical role for patients, the timing of which is discussed in this guideline. J.

CNS Guidelines Podcast_ Deep Brain Stimulation for Parkinson's Disease

The efficacy of bilateral deep brain stimulation (DBS) for the treatment of motor symptoms and levodopa-induced dyskinesias in Parkinson’s Disease (PD) patients is well established. However, the effectiveness of selecting different stimulation targets is less clear. While there is evidence to suggest that the subthalamic nucleus (STN) and globus pallidus internus (GPi) are effective targets, when combined with best medical treatment versus best medical treatment alone, the circumstances in which one target should be selected over the other are still disputed. It is also unknown whether STN and GPi DBS induce similar benefits. In this guideline, the authors systematically review the literature and grade the quality of evidence for the use of STN and GPi in DBS in patients with PD. J.
