Confronted by criticism over its handling of player concussions, the NFL dramatically stepped up its response three years ago by installing neurotrauma specialists on the sidelines of every game and concussion spotters in booths high above the field.

More than 70,000 patients will learn that they have a new primary brain tumor this coming year in the United States alone.6 While most of these patients will undergo surgery for removal and diagnosis, there are some for whom surgery is not a good option.5 Historically, treatment interventions for these individuals were more limited. Neurosurgeons frustrated by this limitation have been involved in the development and study of two new FDA-approved treatments. These are thermal therapy systems that sparked a renewed interest in Magnetic Resonance Guided Laser Induced Thermal Therapy (MRgLITT). LITT provides a minimally invasive surgical access coupled with the power of lasers to ablate a tumor from the inside out.
The recent Institute of Medicine (IOM) report heralding potentially major changes in the world of graduate medical education (GME) funding has brought the whole issue of residency training and its finances into the spotlight. One critical aspect of resident training – which resulted, in part, from an earlier IOM report – that is often overlooked is the unintended consequences on physician training resulting from work hour restrictions. Intended to protect residents and patients from fatigue-related medical errors and accidents, there is a growing recognition that these regulations are failing to serve their intended goals.
