Does duration and sampling of external ventricular drainage systems influence infection rate?

External ventricular drainage systems are often necessary in neurological and neurosurgical patients. The purpose of this literature review is to review the problem of external ventricular drain related infections resulting from repeated cerebrospinal fluid sampling and manipulation of the drain systems. The aim is to provide an appropriate improved protocol for care of patients undergoing external ventricular drainage treatment. Routine analysis of cerebrospinal fluid is often performed to

Enteroviruses Associated with Aseptic Meningitis in Poland, 2011–2014

A 4-year study (2011–2014) of patients with meningitis was performed. Out of the 686 cerebrospinal fluid samples, 465 (67.8%) were posi­tive for eneteroviruses using RT-PCR and out of 334 clinical samples, 216 (64.7%) were positive for enteroviruses using cell culture methods. The highest detection rate was observed in the summer and autumn. In total, 185 enteroviruses were identified by using neutralization test. Echovirus 6 and 30 were the most common (41.7% and 37.5% respectively

Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow: Best Practice for CSF Sampling of an EVD to Minimise Patient Risk

Managing raised intracranial pressure (ICP) with the use of an external ventricular drain (EVD) is a common occurrence in a neurosurgical setting. A central role of the neuroscience nurse in managing that EVD is to monitor the patient for signs and symptoms of infection otherwise known as ventriculitis. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) sampling from an EVD has historically been completed as a daily routine specimen to monitor for any signs of infection. However, in more recent times there has been

Association between scripture memorization and brain atrophy using magnetic resonance imaging

Robust Brain Extraction (ROBEX) (Iglesias et al., 2011). One major strength of ROBEX is that it offers improved accuracy over several other popular, publicly available brain extraction methods. Each subject’s anatomical scan was then segmented into grey matter (GM), white matter (WM) and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) using Gaussian mixture model implemented in Statistical Parametric Mapping (SPM, The volumes of WM, GM and CSF were then calculated. Total brain volume (TBV) was

The abrupt onset, atypical and severe course of psychosis, poor response to antipsychotic treatment, and signs of flu-like prodromal period led to the search of non-psychiatric causes. Although with considerable delay, she was screened for an autoimmune encephalitis. Positive anti-NMDA receptor antibodies were found in the cerebrospinal fluid, but not in

Haplodeficiency of GLUT1 due to heterozygous pathogenic variants in the SLC2A1 gene, mainly of an autosomal dominant inheritance, leads to chronic hypoglycorrachia (decreased cerebrospinal fluid glucose concentration) and neurological dysfunction, which constitute the defining features of the GLUT1-DS (Pascual et al., 2007; De Vivo et al., 1991; Pascual et al., 2004). The GLUT1-DS usually presents as a classic form, with epileptic seizures (90%), but about 10% of patients are seizure-free. The phenotypic
