Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/196684917

Dr. Catherine Mazzola discusses what hydrocephalus is, how it is diagnosed and treated in children and how she and a team of fellow expert neurosurgeons were able to develop clinical guidelines for treatment of pediatric hydrocephalus at the first CSF Chapter lecture in Morristown, New Jersey. This lecture was jointly presented by Chiari & Syringomyelia Foundation and the New Jersey Pediatric Neuroscience Institute. Thank you to all who were involved in putting this together!

Safe Imaging Collaborative for Pediatric Patients

The NJ Hospital Association (NJHA) Institute for Quality and Patient Safety, working with the N.J. Council of Children’s Hospitals, is kicking off a collaborative effort to reduce exposure to ionizing radiation for children by reducing the use of computed tomography (CT) scans in instances of head injuries. NJHA encourages all hospitals to join the collaborative.

All emergency department staff have been counseled to participate in the collaborative and to use other means of imaging in place of CT scans unless it is an absolute emergency situation. Emergency department staff have also been counseled on ordering unnecessary CT scans on patients who are neurologically intact. In these situations, observation is the recommended treatment.

Dr. Mazzola and her staff at the New Jersey Pediatric Neuroscience Institute support the collaborative to reduce unnecessary radiation exposure in pediatric patients and have been actively involved with the education process. Dr. Mazzola and the staff at NJPNI recommend avoiding any unnecessary ionizing radiation if possible.

Headline:
NREF Initiative to Honor Former Ped Chief
 
Home Page Brief:
Neurosurgery Research and Education Foundation establishing A. Leland Albright Fund to support training of neurosurgery residents and fellows in Africa.
 
Article:
The Neurosurgery Research and Education Foundation of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons has established the A. Leland Albright Fund to help support training of neurosurgery residents and fellows in Africa, honoring the volunteer work of the former chief of pediatric neurosurgery at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.
 
Dr. Albright served as a medical missionary from 2010 to 2015 in Kijabe, Kenya where he taught two pediatric neurosurgery fellows and 15 neurosurgery residents from the University of Nairobi, while performing more than 5,000 operations with his colleagues.
 
Dr. Albright was chief of pediatric neurosurgery at CHP from 1992 to 2006, leading a nationally-renown program that included a multi-disciplinary spasticity and movement disorders center that drew referrals of children from throughout the United States. His work was honored with an endowed chair at the University of Pittsburgh in 2002, currently held by Ian Pollack, MD, Dr. Albright’s successor at CHP.
 
Dr. Albright relocated to the University of Wisconsin Health Center in 2006 before beginning his volunteer work in Kenya.
 
The NREF’s A. Leland Albright fund initiative is part of the organization’s “Honor Your Neurosurgical Mentor” program that recognizes the role of exceptional neurosurgeons who have made significant contributions in the advancement of neurosurgery through education.
 
More information on donating to the fund can be found on the NREF website at

Catherine A. Mazzola, MD, of the New Jersey Pediatric Neuroscience Institute and a fellow under Dr. Albright in 2001-02, is serving as the fund’s manager.

“Pediatrician’s perspective on ITB” abstract in NJ Pediatrics

Inthrathecal baclofen (ITB) therapy has been utilized as an established treatment for spasticity, dystonia and hypertonia in children. Pediatricians often are the first medical professionals to report muscle and joint “tightness” in a child’s upper and lower extremities. Click below to read this entire article.
