Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The field of neurological surgery has seen tremendous growth in recent years, whether this be through technical advances in operative techniques or novel treatment methods. As a result, patients, surgeons, and healthcare systems have seen improving clinical and patient-reported outcomes in addition to reduced morbidity or mortality in many subsects of the specialty. Yet, the complexity of both patient populations and treatments continues to increase. Research on the impact of clinical advances in neurosurgery remains at the forefront of importance to ensure that treatments are clinically and economically efficacious. In this Special Issue, we invite authors to submit works focusing on assessments of clinical advances in neurosurgery, including, but not limited to, emerging diagnostic modalities, deep brain stimulation (DBS), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), spinal surgery, and complication management to better understand impacts within a rapidly evolving surgical specialty.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Clinical Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a severe neurological disease for which there is no effective treatment or cure, and therefore it remains an unmet need in medicine. We present data from four participants who received autologous transplantation of small pieces of sural nerve tissue into either the basal forebrain containing the nucleus basalis of Meynert (NBM) or the midbrain substantia nigra (SN). The grafts did not exhibit significant cell death or severe host-tissue reaction up to 55 months post-grafting and contained peripheral cells. Dopaminergic neurites showed active growth in the graft area and into the graft in the SN graft, and cholinergic neurites were abundant near the graft in the NBM. These results provide a histological basis for changes in clinical features after autologous peripheral nerve tissue grafting into the NBM or SN in PD. Full article
