Various textbooks on stereotactic neurosurgery were released over the last few years (Riechert 1980, Schaltenbrand and Walker 1982, Spiegel 1982), them all facing useful stereo strategies because the significant topic within the box. Diagnostic and healing stereotactic interventions are just in short defined, while localization concepts should not but pointed out. considering 1980, even if, increasingly more experiences has been released on CT guided and laptop monitored stereotactic performances which allow the doctor to mix diagnostic and healing efforts in a single consultation. With contemporary development in scanning innovations, together with excessive solution CT, NMR, and puppy imaging of the mind, it has develop into attainable to check and localize any mind niche. With the concomitant advances in machine know-how, third-dimensional reconstruction of deep seated lesions in stereotactic house is feasible and how is open for mixed surgical procedure with stereotactic precision and desktop guided open resection. this sort of open surgical procedure in stereotactic area is already being constructed in a few facilities by using microsurgical, fiberoptic, and laser beam instrumentation. With those advances stereotactic innovations will speedily turn into in tegrated into medical neurosurgery. Stereotactics has turn into a metho dology which allows the health care professional to assault deep seated and subcortical small tumors. Neurosurgeons might abandon healing nihilism, nonetheless usually visible in glioma remedy, within the close to destiny while stereotactic resection may be possible and last tumor cells will be killed through adjuvant therapy modalities nonetheless in development.

In 1979. It is clear, that such lesions compared with those obtained with cervical cordotomy have the advantage of relieving pain from head and neck and can be performed bilaterally, if necessary. Besides that, untoward side-effects from the motor system as is quite possible in cordotomy (Mooij et al. 1984) will not occur. Therefore, this type of brainstem stereotactic surgery has held its reputation especially in patients suffering from cancer pains. CT scan control both pre- and postoperatively may refine this surgery even more (Dettori et al.
In the largest series (104 cases) Schvarcz (1978) reported relief in 83% of malignant disease and 87% of postherpetic neuralgia of the face, versus 72% in cases of trigeminal dysesthesia after peripheral procedures for "genuine" neuralgia.
Transsphenoidal). For biopsy procedures a special forceps has been developed by Riechert (et al. 1967). This apparatus and its applications are extensively described by Riechert in 1980. The system is modified and adapted for CT guided interventions by Mundinger (et al. 1978 a, b); Fig. 22. 3. Leksel! System The stereotactic system of Leksell consists of a cubical headframe, which is fixed to the skull with 4 (formerly 3) pins that are drilled into the tabula externa. The major difference with the other devices is, that this frame constitutes a three-dimensional orthogonal coordinate system, which shows v.
