Innovated suction, irrigation and dissecting micro-neurosurgical forceps with separate double control for both functions separately Objective: The operating surgeons usually using the dissection forceps while the assistants continuously keeping the surgical field relatively clean by irrigation and suction through suction tube and another one for irrigation which might lead to "Crowded“ or busy traffic operative field by many instruments under Department . Methods: University our innovated forceps use the two limps of the Forceps for two separate functions, One for irrigation, while the Other limp for suction by using a tube inside each of both, This tube end separately in the back of that forceps, However, the two limps tubes, one of them is attached to the disposable polyethylene channel tube to the a graduated in power suction apparatus. While the other tube at the back end of that forceps is attached to the line of infusion control irrigation which could control the speed of the flow of saline irrigation out to the field of surgery. So, we could control the power of both functions accurate and separately. Result: We have already made the pro-type of that forceps which have been used for experimental surgery on animal & also, recently have been used on one of our, for that particular case a video-clip would be demonstrated. Conclusions: So, The use of the single instrument “The Forceps” for dissection, irrigation, and suction actually facilitate microsurgical operation especially tumor capsule dissection and excision instead of three instruments working simultaneously in a limited field of the microscope.

Dementias constitute a heterogeneous group of affections and morphological imaging is routinely requested in case of detection of any recent dementia. In the clinical practice, screening imaging examinations such as brain CT and MRI are useful to exclude secondary dementia from neurodegenerative disorders. This morphological imaging help guiding the second-line diagnostic process: oriented biology, functional and metabolic imaging. Through an iconographic review, we will try to explain the value of CT and MRI exams and to propose a simplified MRI protocol. Our paper will simplify the classification of dementias and explain the value of morphological brain imaging in dementia while differentiating neurodegenerative from secondary causes of dementia related to brain tumors, subdural hematomas, normal pressure hydrocephalus, cerebrovascular, inflammatory, infectious, nutritional, metabolic and toxic disorders.
