This quantity comprises chosen contributions from the XIth assembly of the ecu Society for Stereotactic and useful Neurosurgery held in September 1994 in Antalyaffurkey. lots of the papers take care of the numerous healing and technical developments made during this box of neurosurgery. The emergence of recent stereotactic methodologies reminiscent of frameless stereotaxy and other kinds of neuronavigation became an imperative instrument for every type of neurosurgical operations. increasingly more younger neurosurgeons takes an curiosity within the neurosurgical ways to the remedy of circulation issues, continual discomfort and epilepsy. it is a transparent signal ofthe becoming wisdom of the lengthy missed indisputable fact that those neurosurgical remedies might be provided to massive sufferer populations. Neurotransplantation as a unique therapy of Parkinson's disorder has prepared the ground for the appliance of this know-how for different symptoms. The pioneering paintings played through the past due Edward Hitchcock is reviewed right here. there's a renewed curiosity in pallidotomy for facing convinced varieties of Parkinson's ailment and likely elements of this operation are mentioned in one other paper. development within the neurosurgical therapy of discomfort is handled via contributions on subtle suggestions of percutaneous cordotomy, DREZ operations and significant reviews of spinal twine stimulation. a unique method is a document at the stories of treating melanoma soreness by way of intraspinal implantation of chromaffin cells. a number of contributions conceal the real problems with novel innovations for the research of neural disorder, peroperative tracking with puppy, microrecording, magneto-encephalography and different techniques.

They could be easily corrected under local anaesthesia and without serious consequences. One paraplegic patient died of pulmonary embolism, in this case the spasms scores was reduced of 3 to 1. It must be questioned for paraplegic patients, that the spasms might not be totally suppressed, to avoid venous stasis and for keeping muscular trophicity in the legs [15,18]. e. e. spontaneous or induced). In P. Mertens et al. e. the minimal stimulus intensity required to elicit a spasm) and their intensity, as measured by the amplitude and duration of the EMG response in flexor muscles.

We use both ipsilateral and contralateral BAEP recordings and EMG. The recordings made during ipsilateral stimulation are used to evaluate the integrity of the acoustic nerve during tumor removal; the contralateral side is stimulated whenever it is necessary to evaluate brainstem function or to check whether or not ipsilateral changes are due to artifacts. 2. Microvascular Decompression In patients undergoing surgery for hemifacial spasm and trigeminal neuralgia both EMG and BAEP are recorded. Other procedures, such as recording of the direct acoustic nerve compound action potential (CAP) [7], electrocochleography or optical pathway neurophysiological evaluation are not routinely performed.
