Research

Clinical Research

  • Australasian Shunt Registry

The Australasian Shunt Registry was developed to address the relatively high rate of device related complications in the management of hydrocephalus and other CSF circulation disorders. The project aims to record data from each shunt procedure undertaken to establish rates and patterns of shunt failure and subsequent revision. The project is based at the Children's Hospital at Westmead where a pilot project has been running for 6 months. Support for the project has been shown by several other centres where Registry is to be introduced. The data will be available to individual surgeons on a confidential basis so that they may compare their own performance to their institution or to the group. The data will also serve as base for other research projects in the future.

  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

Incorporated into the practice is a study of the long-term outcome of patients undergoing treatment of normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH). Patients undergo formal assessments pre-operatively as well as 3, 6 and 12 months after surgery. This information collected over several years has provided significant opportunities to study various aspects of NPH and the outcomes from treatment.

  • Deep Brain Stimulation

In conjunction with Dr Neil Mahant and the multidisciplinary DBS team we Prof Owler is involved in several studies involving the indications and outcomes of DBS surgery both in children and adults.

Previous Research

Discipline of Child Health and Paediatrics

Children’s Hospital at Westmead Clinical School
University of Sydney

Neurosurgical Laboratory CHW 2007-2011

The Laboratory was established at the CHW in 2007 to conduct basic science neurosurgical research. Prof Owler was responsible for the laboratory and supervision of Dr Dongwei Wang PhD. The areas of interest in the Neurosurgical Laboratory included hydrocephalus and paediatric brain tumours.

Hydrocephalus Research

The main area research within the laboratory was hydrocephalus and CSF circulation disorders. A model of acute inflammatory hydrocephalus was developed. This cisternal kaolin model was applied to the study of a membrane water channel, aquaporin 1, within the choroid plexus and its role in cerebrospinal fluid production and the development of hydrocephalus. Techniques used in the laboratory included immunofluorescence, immunohistochemistry, western blot and RT-PCR. The study involved the use of AQP1 knockout mice through a collaboration with Professor Alan Verkman at UCSF. Several publications resulted from this work as documented below.

Funding

Hydrocephalus Research was funded by the Madeline Foundation for Neurosurgical Research and Brain Foundation

Paediatric Brain Tumour Research

In conjunction with the CHW Tumour Bank we studied the expression and distribution of aquaporins 1 and 4 in paediatric brain tumours. These water channels are upregulation and redistributed in some adult brain tumours and are thought to have important roles in the development of brain oedema and tumour cell migration.

Funding

Paediatric brain tumour research was funded by the Georgia Douglass Trust.

  • Department of Surgery, University of Sydney

Prof Owler has conducted clinical research on the topic of CSF circulation disorders through the Department of Surgery at the University of Sydney over a period of 22 years. Research into the topic of pseudo-tumour-cerebri has culminated in the development of a new treatment for the condition - venous sinus stenting. Since the publication of the first case in the Lancet, other centres have begun to publish their own cases using venous sinus stents. Clinical practice is currently changing around the world because of this research.

  • Department of Surgery, University of Sydney, 2000-2003

Academic Neurosurgery Unit, Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge UK Prof Owler conducted basic and clinical research into the pathogenesis of normal pressure hydrocephalus as part of a PhD project. While normal pressure hydrocephalus is CSF circulation disorder, Prof Owler chose to concentrate on the role of the parenchyma in the pathogenesis of the condition. Various tools were used to perform the research including computerized CSF infusion studies, positron emission tomography and diffusion tensor MR imaging at 3 tesla. This research has resulted in the publication of several papers.

  • University of California, San Francisco, Department of Neurology, 1996

Prof Owler elected to undertake further research into the neuroanatomy of nociception during my undergraduate medical training. This involved performing basic research on CNS pain regulation pathways and the role of different opioids in the midbrain.

  • University of Sydney, Department of Anatomy, 1993

Prof Owler enrolled in a BSc(Med) (Hons I) during his undergraduate medical training to gain a knowledge of basic research in the neurosciences. Research was conducted into the neuroanatomy of visceral nociception and the role of these pathways in the behavioural and physiological responses to visceral noxious stimuli.

Review of Scientific Articles

  • Reviews of Scientific Articles

Prof Owler reviews scientific articles for several international medical journals including:

  • Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism
  • Journal of Neurology

  • Neurology India
  • European Journal of Neurology

Teaching Experience

Clinical Achievements

Prof. Owler’s current clinical practice encompasses both paediatric and adult neurosurgery. An extensive variety of neurosurgical conditions are treated including both cranial and spinal conditions. Areas of practice include neuro-oncology, functional neurosurgery including deep brain stimulation, endoscopic skull base surgery, CSF circulation disorders and spinal surgery including complex spine and instrumentation.

Clinical achievements have included:

Development of Endoscopic Transnasal Odontoid Resection for Basilar Impression

Until recent years’ patients with basilar invagination, particularly those with osteogenesis imperfecta were referred to the United Kingdom for surgery. Prof Owler developed a combined neurosurgical/ENT endoscopic skull base surgery service has allowed us to develop a new technique for the treatment of basilar invagination through a transnasal route. A report of the first case using this technique was published in the Journal of Neurosurgery: Spine.

Establishment of Deep Brain Stimulation for Movement Disorders

The movement disorders clinic at Westmead Hospital has been a centre of excellence for the treatment of Parkinson ’s disease and other movement disorders for many years. In 2007 Prof Owler and Dr Neil Mahant established a DBS service at Westmead. Prof Owler has now performed the surgery in over 80 patients. This service has been extended to provide DBS surgery for paediatric movement disorders such as dystonia. A RCT is currently being developed for the treatment of cerebral palsy using DBS surgery.

Venous Sinus Stenting for Pseudo tumour Cerebri

Through research undertaken at the Academic Neurosurgery Unit and in Sydney, Prof Owler had a leading role in the development of a new treatment for pseudo tumour cerebri (idiopathic intracranial hypertension). Cases refractory to medical treatment were previously treated with shunting or optic nerve sheath fenestration. Through publications in the Lancet, Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry, Journal of Neurosurgery as well as Advances and Technical Standards in Neurosurgery, venous sinus stenting has gained popularity in many centres around the world resulting in numerous publications from other groups. It is now accepted as a new and valid alternative treatment for this condition.

Establishing the NSW Mobile Paediatric Neurosurgery Service

Prof Owler worked with the NETS (Neuronatal and Paediatric Emergency Transport Service) team at Westmead to provide a unique service in NSW. For many neurosurgical conditions time is critical. To reduce the time taken for patients to have emergency surgery Prof Owler worked to provide a service whereby Prof Owler or a colleague would fly to the closest hospital in NSW to perform lifesaving surgery. The results have been published in the Journal of Neurosurgery: Paediatrics. The service has been used to save lives of children across NSW with several neurosurgeons participating.
