This quantity includes chosen contributions from the XIth assembly of the eu 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 latest stereotactic methodologies equivalent to frameless stereotaxy and different kinds of neuronavigation became an fundamental software for every type of neurosurgical operations. increasingly more younger neurosurgeons takes an curiosity within the neurosurgical techniques to the therapy of stream problems, persistent soreness and epilepsy. this can be a transparent signal ofthe transforming into knowledge of the lengthy ignored undeniable fact that those neurosurgical remedies will be provided to massive sufferer populations. Neurotransplantation as a unique remedy of Parkinson's disorder has prepared the ground for the appliance of this expertise for different symptoms. The pioneering paintings played via the overdue Edward Hitchcock is reviewed right here. there's a renewed curiosity in pallidotomy for facing convinced types of Parkinson's sickness and likely facets of this operation are mentioned in one other paper. development within the neurosurgical therapy of ache is handled by way of contributions on sophisticated suggestions of percutaneous cordotomy, DREZ operations and demanding reviews of spinal wire stimulation. a unique procedure is a record at the studies of treating melanoma soreness by means of intraspinal implantation of chromaffin cells. a number of contributions conceal the real problems with novel ideas for the learn of neural disorder, peroperative tracking with puppy, microrecording, magneto-encephalography and different techniques.

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. Both parameters proved to be very significantly influenced by chronic baclofen infusion, which abolished or strongly attenuated flexion responses in all our patients (Fig. 1). In our series, the information provided by flexor reflex recording was not redundant with that obtained by clinical scales: patients with the highest spasm scores were not necessarily those who exhibited the more intense flexor responses to stimulation (see Fig.

Brockt, and I. Dones! Departments of 1 Neurosurgery and 2Neurophysiology, Istituto Nazionale Neurologico "C. Besta", Milano Italy Summary Intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring of cranial nerve functions in surgery for microvascular decompression and tumors of the posterior fossa is important for minimizing risk of permanent damage to the nerves. In particular, intraoperative BAEP and the EMG function of muscle innervated by trigeminal and facial muscle have been found useful. We report here our experiences with intraoperative monitoring of brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP) and EMG recorded from muscles supplied by the trigeminal and facial nerves.

2), an area where the mechanical disturbance with the micro electrode diminishes tremor and where electrical microstimulation produces tremor reduction or arrest. There are a number of risks associated with creating lesions in the vicinity of VIM. Paresis occurs with injury to the laterally positioned internal capsule. As studied with micro electrodes, the internal capsule does not contain high amplitude units and is relatively silent. Microstimulation in the capsule produces paraesthesia or motor contractions.
